Glam Travel: San Diego

Glam Travel: San Diego

Singing "California Love" my entire flight from Houston, I was so anxious to get to San Diego California. Why because it was my annual girls trip to start off summer & I had bomb outfits to wear. This summer I planned to experience the best glam life by wearing cute swim suits, rompers, short shorts and all my cute slides & sandals. San Diego vibes are like no other, the clean air, tall palm trees, the gorgeous mountains,  and the cool breeze from the ocean waves with killer views, makes a girl just want to rethink her whole life. Enjoy the pictures and stories below.

Beautiful View in San Diego.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hyatt Regency at Mission Bay. The hotel is right on the Mission Bay Marina where nice boats and sea lions live. The hotel is family oriented including pets. Having a dog big or small is the thing in Cali, people with dogs and beautiful views. Dogs are allowed at stores and restaurants, which is really cool for all the dog lovers.

Stripes and Mimosas 

To wake up with the ocean water whistling “wake up” and the sun shining brightly, there was no choice but, to wake up to go eat a great Brunch with Bottomless Mimosas. Decided to give FireHouse on Pacific Beach a try. FireHouse was indeed delicious serving anything from breakfast to lunch where a girl can get a lot for her money. After brunching there was a cool feature at Firehouse where you could do a virtual photobooth boomerang style. Of course, we did at least 30 videos! However, the Mimosas were the highlight of our day! Best $16.00 ever spent. For dinner we decided to eat at the Red Marlin at Mission Bay. Red Marlin was right off the marina, so I definitely enjoyed watching the yachts, sailors, and the big birds sail by. So, relaxing to eat and have boss lady conversations with women who aspire to be so great in life.

Activities: Shopping on Pacific Beach was like WOW!!! Pacific Beach Pier is like being on Jersey Shore. Many shops & attractions to enjoy as you indulge in watching the skateboarders, bike riders, dog walkers, or artist light up the sand and mini sidewalks. If you don’t like sand or being near huge crowds, you could always shop in Pacific Beach’s small town where you will find other shops, ice cream shops, Urban Outfitters {one of my favorite places to shop}, and your typical gift shops. After shopping & touring Pacific Beach relaxing by the pool was on the agenda. The Hyatt Regency at Mission Bay offered two heated pools, 1 jacuzzi, and a huge water slide where I relaxed and just enjoyed kicking my feet up.

Outfit: I decided to wear a blue & white off the shoulder romper from Boo Hoo. It was the perfect outfit for the day, because San Diego always has a cool breeze imbedded into its climate with or without the sun. I glammed the romper with a pair golden mustard satin sandals from Target along with a pearl choker from Forever 21.  The romper was very light, and you could literally color block any accessories to match the blue & white stripes. I love how the romper was super girly, just right for a girl’s trip. For Dinner, I wore a Forest Green 2-piece pant set from Fashion Nova.

Romper is from  BooHoo . Sunglasses are  Steve Madden . Satin slide ins are from  Target . I love my clutch because it can also be a sling purse. I found this cute embellished bag at Marshall's.

"The Cave Woman in Stripes"

Location: LA JOLLA, CA 

Brunch: Swamis 

Attire: 2-piece Blue & White Halter Set

Activities: The Cave Store: The Cave store in La Jolla is a must do activity if ever in the San Diego area. This place is a hidden Gem that is only $5.00 to tour. This was amazing and breath taking. I’ve always been a little paranoid to even go in a cave or mine because I watch wayyyyy too many movies where people get stuck or trapped. But luckily the ending result is so beautiful that you really can’t believe your eyes. The down fall is walking back up allll those stairs to get back to the top! Once back to the top and out of the Cave Store turn right to go stand on top of the cliff to overlook thousands and thousands of ocean water. Surprisingly, you will see beautiful sea lions and gorgeous big birds from this view. Coming from Texas where the land is flat, and the water is brown, I really could not get over how astonishing this view was. Hopefully, the pictures captured will do the view some justice. Looking at all the beautiful palm trees and multi-million-dollar homes it just makes you think, “This could be me, but I live in Texas!". We ate lunch at Eddie V’s in La Jolla. This was a very classy lunch with views from the top. Eddie V’s has the best Asian Filet Mignon Sliders, Blackened Fish Tacos, and Cosmos. I really enjoyed every bite. 

Exciting News, Celebrity Sighting: John Cena and Nikki Bella were also causally at Eddie V’s. I was so excited to see them, and my friends told me no, don’t ask for a picture. So being the fan that I am, I snuck a video of them for my own memory. It definitely does look like they are back together again.  And for those wondering who they are, they are WWE wrestlers. 

Definitely a must see if ever in the San Diego area.   $5.00 for adults ------- $3.00 for children

My sunglasses worn in this picture are  Givenchy . I had to Glam up the rocks in Cali. If you look behind me you will see my lunch Spot Eddie V's.

Nightlife in San Diego is primarily spent in the Gaslamp District for the 21-year-old and up crowd, Pacific Beach scene is more for the college student crowd, which we figured out our first night in SD. Gaslamp gives off Bourbon Street in New Orleans, 6thstreet Austin Vibes, mixed with a little Vegas at night. Needless to say, we glammed the street of SD, and enjoyed awesome people and super cool vibes. We ate dinner at Ciro’s Pizzeria & Beerhouse in Gaslamp District! OMG, for the love of God! This Pizza was so delicious. For a hot second, I really thought I was eating New York pizza. I would definitely always get a slice whenever I travel back to San Diego.

"Chill and Charter"

Activities: Yacht Riding with Chill Charters. Justin from Chill Charters was amazing. His boat was very clean and ready to ride. Justin was very helpful. On this ride he provided us with water and snacks, even though we could bring our own. He cruised us to different areas of the bay where we could site see while admiring the breathtaking views. My friends and I really enjoyed the cool things he offered. If ever in the San Diego area and would like to Chill and Charter a cruise, I recommend Justin @ChillCharters. After a nice relaxing boat ride we traveled back into the city in Gaslamp to attend a roof top pool party at the Pendry Hotel. This is where we partied for the rest of the day. 

I wore denim shorts, a cool shirt I bought from a gift shop in Tulum, Mexico. I was able to accessorize this outfit with a green head band & dangly yellow mustard earrings from Forever 21.  I wore gold plated Tory Burch Slide ins.  Around my ankle I wore an anklet from Princess P Closet. I can't forget my Cactus Glass Cup, this cute glass kept me hydrated.

Glam Tip: When you are going to be in the Sun, moisturize your face with SPF infused face cream before putting on light makeup. Also use SPF infused lip balm for your lips. Protect your skin always! Sun Block is a must whenever you are dealing with the sun.

Glam Girl Tip: When traveling always pack in color themes so that your accessories, shoes, and handbags will be able to compliment any outfit. Be worry free about packing cutting back on shoes can make your bag a lot lighter.

As I reflect back on this trip, San Diego was very good to me. Great weather, awesome entertainment, stunning views, and chill vibes. 

Bye Bye San Diego!
