Hotel Life: La Jolla Hyatt Regency

Long time no see everyone, I’ve been trying to hold on to summer’s last bits of sun in La Jolla, San Diego the past week. I’m no stranger to SD, however I haven’t been back in what seems like forever so this was a fun trip to not only relax but also to spend some time with our friend Shelli and her family. @Twelfthknight and I stayed in La Jolla’s Hyatt Regency, and if you make a trip out here I would highly recommend this location, just 20 minutes north of the airport and super close to the beach and fun eateries.

Needless to say, we spent an incredible amount of time stretched out in our cabana and in the pool soaking up that vitamin D. Hopefully my tan stays around for another few weeks into Fall *fingers crossed. Speaking of fingers, yes I am engaged! For my Instagram community, you were the first to know a while ago, but yes…@Twelfthknight and I are now engaged. If you’re not following @shoes_and_sashimi on Instagram, I wish you would because I just can’t keep up blogging like I used to. Besides, it’s a way to see what I’m up to each day, so don’t be shy!

Below you will find some of my swim and sun favorites used and worn this past week. P.S…of all the coffee shops in SD, my favorite has to be Communal Coffee which also acts as a flower shop.

Maybe you’re looking to get away to San Diego one of these days? I would come back to La Jolla’s Hyatt Regency in a heart beat.

My trick to traveling light and fast: A Lo and Son’s backpack. This fits my mac, camera, water bottle, toiletries, keys, wallet, and then some. Plus, it has memory foam straps and just slides on to your luggage handle for efficiency.

Get away with me: Wine Country

Sometimes I feel like I’m always searching for some resolve or peace of mind. Maybe I’ve always been restless. Not sure what I’m always searching for exactly, but I know that to be completely content with oneself and where they’re at in life is quite rare. Striving for more but better yet figuring out how to get there is always on my mind, day in day out. If you’re anything like me, it’s exhausting am I right?

A few days in Paso Robles (2 hrs north of LA) with the furbaby and @Twelfthknight helped me reach some calm finally in a long time. Every dip in our hotel pool, a morning tour of Hearst Castle, and some really nice time spent wine tasting and eating…can’t get more relaxing than that.

Hearst literally built his dream. And so will I, one way or another.

As always, thank you for reading and keep striving :)

Where we went:

Ecluse Winery, Paso Robles

Calcareous Vineyards, Paso Robles

Hearst Castle, San Simeon

What I Wore:

Desi Perkins x Quay Sunglasses 

Becca Swim: Black One Piece

Hat: Harwen House Designs

Travel with Me: Cabo

Last stop on our tour is Cabo San Lucas, and to be honest…it’s my favorite out of the three :D @Twelfthknight and I spent hours in the clear water of Medano Beach, a straight shot to El Arco de Cabo (those monolithic rock formations.) Hacienda Beach Resort is beautiful and I highly recommend coming here for the beach scene. Cabanas, sun, jet ski’s glass bottom boats, fish, sand, and crystal clear water…what more do you need?

I loved our time here on the open sea, it was the most relaxed I’ve felt in a long time. I do think we’ll be booking with Princess early next year for our next adventure. If you would like to book a trip, you can use the link found here.
