Home. Los Angeles, California. July 22, 2016.

Will I be in town,

when hell swallows Beverly Hills,

Will you be around,

when I come to my senses and I confess that I love you still.Swimm “Beverly Hells”

Just a girl, her hoop earrings, and a swipe of fresh mocha lipstick. It’s that 110 degree flush.

There is nothing more brilliant than dipping yourself in your very own hot spring pool. From Peninsula Papagayo we hit the road one evening through the sunset to La Fortunado. Our destination? The dreamy Nayara Springs hotel. We arrived just past midnight and woke up to the sounds of a man and his guitar playing Hotel California in the restaurant. Nayara Springs is surrounded by jungle. Hills so lush and so green. Just getting to our room is like going through Jurassic Park. We took it’s narrow bridge surrounded by tall trees decked in twinkling lights up to our casita. But it wasn’t until the crack of dawn that we really got to experience all of Nayara’s beauty. Our backyard hot spring was surrounded by leaves so big you really couldn’t see anything a mile away…maybe just a small glimpse of the volcano. We spent hours in our hot spring pool. The steam worked miracles on our skin. We’re talking baby soft. Just what we needed after days roughing it out surfing in the sun. We started our days with a classic Costa Rican dish of eggs, cheese, wild rice and watermelon smoothies, followed by yoga during the rain. Fully chilled out thanks to the burning incense of palo santo wood and the sounds of the guitar. Want to go on a honeymoon? Go here.

This gigantic straw hat has been to many beaches with us. From lazy mornings in Miami to here at dusk in Costa Rica. It’s been this close to getting washed away into the ocean that I’m surprised it’s still here in my closet back in New York awaiting it’s next sandy adventure. Here we are just minutes from losing the sun at the beautiful Four Seasons Peninsula Papagayo. The beach so quiet all you could hear was the buzzing from the trees and the crashing of the waves. Pure paradise. New York City felt extremely far away. Suddenly you smell of sunscreen, the ocean, and bug spray. A comforting combination. It’s nice having these photos to soak back in this little moment. When all you need is a beer and your best friend’s shoulder to lean on.

There’s a super magical place in La Fortunado, Costa Rica called Nayara Springs. It’s a total honeymoon spot. A place to laze around your casita…dipping in and out of your backyard’s hot spring plunge pool. The humidity and hot springs makes your skin glow better than any face serum could. The heat immediately makes you want to close your eyes and doze off into a daydream. It’s one of those places where you rarely see your neighbors because everyone stays in their own little world among the jungle’s chirping birds. Talk about seclusion, my favorite way to escape.

I definitely did a bikini a day…and you know how much I love the vibrancy of the color red. I found this baby at Aerie. Complete with a matching satin red headband and a bottle of Sun Bum. Less is more.
