This week has been consumed with a lot of time on airplanes and in rental cars…and major jet lag. But, it’s also been full of beauty, new discoveries and palm trees. These are my favorite kinds of weeks where I am able to share photos and links to new places with you.

On Sunday morning, Joey, Rocky and I landed in LA and immediately grabbed a rental car to Palm Springs. By noon, we were hanging out in our home away from home (this is the fourth time we’ve been this year), getting some much needed sun.

As I walked through a neighborhood, I spotted a nautical themed house….complete with a mailbox made of a tiled tentacle and treasure chest. Pretty amazing, right?!

Our stay in Palm Springs was much too short but we headed back to LA to pick up Gala, who was arriving from New York Monday morning.

On Monday, Joey, Gala and I hit all our favorite LA haunts. First up: Cafe Gratitude. If you’ve never been, their menu is made up of affirmations. It’s a pretty cool concept — see for yourself!

Next, we paid a visit to the brand new Nasty Gal store on Melrose, complete with branded black balloons.

I was a big fan of these gradient shelves.

I figured I’d be on Bondi Beach soon so I grabbed the brightest citrus-hued nail polish I could find. This is by Pop.

At midnight, my Sydney-bound flight took off. 14 hours later….

I was staying at Bondi Beach. So, so gorgeous.

I was obsessed with all the foliage along the beach. So many great textures.

I chose this room in our cozy little beach house because of all the Branch orange accents. My view every morning is of the sea — so much different than my usual reality!

I thought this sign was especially hilarious.

As we were walking along our street, I fell in love with this black, slightly Bavarian-looking house — it looks a lot like my home back in Portland!

As we were walking through Sydney, we stopped by the QT Hotel, knowing that they always have the best style. And of course, they didn’t disappoint.

Their decor is unique to every location. Last year I stayed at the QT Port Douglas and QT Gold Coast.

Yesterday was really fun — we took a cab to the Sydney Opera House to shoot with Janneke Storm and then headed over to Bondi Beach.

It was so interesting walking along the beach because they also have these salt pools that line up against the ocean. Pretty surreal looking.

Have a great weekend, everyone. I’m off to teach Blogcademy and meet all our new students. If you’d like to join us in Melbourne or Auckland, we still have a few seats left — book in here!

    Love the room you’re staying in – what a gorgeous sea view. Your bright and sunny photos are the perfect antidote to grey and drizzly British skies. Hope you have a great time in Australia!

    Those blue skies are absolutely gorgeous! I would love to hear how you keep your energy (and health) globetrotting! Travel is so exciting and exhilarating for me, but sometimes the long travel really knocks me out.

      I try to sleep on planes, take a full day off before teaching a class and drink plenty of water. Still, after a few weeks away, I feel worn down. I don’t know if there are any real secrets when you have to travel to new places back to back…
