There just wasn't enough time.
I'm a Cali girl, so every time I get to go to New York, I can't help but feel excited. I know I could never see the whole city in one weekend, so every trip feels like a new adventure. I recently attended CurvyCon (a plus size bloggers conference) in NYC, and I knew I had stay very close to the location, so I could have easy access to a change clothes, and touch up my make-up if necessary. I made the trip with my blogger friends, Ola, Viv and Chichi.
The New York Hilton Midtown was the perfect location for all our fashion and beauty needs. I hopped right into a taxi in front of the hotel to get to my first event of the day, and getting around the city from the central Midtown location was super easy. From walking in a fashion show the first night, to attending a panel discussion the next morning, it was all a breeze! Another plus of staying at the Hilton Midtown, was the vibrant location. A block from the hotel, I found great spots to shoot several blog posts (pictured below). To top it all off, the girls and I were treated by the Hilton to beauty and wellness services, courtesy of PRIV.
PRIV is a beauty service thats comes to you wherever you are! PRIV representatives provide massages, threading, manicures, and so many more beauty services all in the comfort of your home, office, or even hotel room! It was such a treat to get my nails done right before heading to CurvyCon. Overall thanks to the New York Hilton Midtown, the girls and I had an amazing trip, and will definitely be going back! If you are ever in search of a place to stay in NYC, make sure to check out the New York Hilton Midtown, and maybe treat yourself to some PRIV services! Until next time New York, you have my heart.
The Florida sun was such a treat from the gloomy weather here in DC. I headed to Orlando, Florida with my boyfriend for our six month anniversary, and we had an amazing time staying at the Parc Soleil by Hilton Grand Vacations. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, and the staff was so accomodating. We even got upgraded to a suite because it was our anniversary, thank you Hilton for such a sweet gesture!
Parc Soleil was in a great location for our vacation. Not only did the grounds have the perfect scenery for my blog photoshoots, the hotel was also close to great local restaurants in Orlando, and the major theme parks. I finally got my wish to see Harry Potter World in Universal Studios, and it did not dssapoint! We spent a full day at the theme park, and I was so glad to have our king beg and massive bathtub to go to back at the hotel. Our room was abosluteley fabulous. We had a balocny with a breathtaking view, and had breakfast downstairs by the pool every morning. Ah the life... The hotel was also under an hour drive from Cocoa Beach, Florida, so we took the drive and spent the day laying around in the sun and enjoying the cool water. I can't wait to head back to Orlando for another great stay at Parc Soleil! Where will I head next? Stay tuned!
I do not know how to begin to share my experience with you, so i'll just let you see it. I will never forget Habana. I will never forget the people, the places and the spirit of Cuba. There will always be a special place in my heart for this city.
