Canyon Coffee, founded by coffee-loving couple, Ally Walsh & Casey Wojtalewicz, is gaining major visibility across the SoCal coffee scene. Launched in 2016, the venture emerged from the couple’s love for the ritual of coffee wherever they traveled around the world. And with a focus on organic, fair trade beans and roasts that are made to be savored sans-creamer, it’s no surprise they are receiving a warm welcome in the community (their gorgeous Instagram doesn’t hurt either!).

Perched along the bluffs of Santa Monica and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows takes your idea of a dream California vacation to a whole new level. With gorgeous, luxurious rooms and bungalows, various event spaces and a sweet location in central Santa Monica, this spot is at the top of our summer crush list right now.
Already known amongst locals as the see-and-be-seen spot of Santa Monica, this spot has the makings for a bachelorette party weekender, and R&R filled group getaway & is a definite must-see for any plant and ocean lover.
It’s not every day that we hear about an old French convent being turned into a luxury boutique hotel, so imagine our delight when we spotted this Relais & Chateaux stunner in The Luberon. Perched at the top of town, this 17th century stone structure is surrounded by hundreds of years old gardens, originally planted by monks who specialized in botany. Fast forward a few centuries and Couvent des Minimes is a family-run hotel that operates under the Relais & Chateaux brand. As all the hotels this group touches turn to gorgeous, Couvent des Minimes is modern and luxurious, with awesome amenities and even more awesome views.
Our friends over at Nomad Republic recently set up a gorgeous photoshoot in the South of France and showed off Couvent des Minimes in all its natural beauty. This team of wedding industry pros specialize in both European and US markets, so you can bet they chose this destination out of a bevvy of stunning venues. Here to give us the scoop on all things minimal, French, and modern, they’ve given us all the deets below.
When your Mom’s turning 60 and it’s time for the ultimate mother-daughter celebration outside of the states but not off of the continent, where do you go? Channel your inner Frida and hop a plane to Mexico City to explore the historic and buzzing town filled with art and culture from your home base in the chic and spirited neighborhood of Condesa.
Perched on a corner in a 1928 French neoclassical building overlooking the lush Parque España sits the equally charming and fresh Hotel Condesa DF.
