Travel: The Wayfarer Hotel Santa Barbara Experience

It’s been about 2 weeks since I got back from my Getaway in Santa Barbara, CA at The Wayfarer Hotel and I can’t stop recommending it! It was such a fun experience. The hotel is covered in fun and unexpected little gems in their decor like the rainbow colored book wall, the giant sized Jenga blocks in the leisure area and the old fashioned telephones in the rooms which I totally used as prop! It’s a fun and unique concept for a city that has so much to offer, I left inspired and with many plans to go back. I got to enjoy this stay with my Blogger friend Vicky from @fashionbyvicky, keep reading to find out all the cool spots we discovered together.

The Wayfarer Hotel_erikadvm

This is my first time staying at one of the many locations Pacifica Hotels has in their collection, which is over 25 hotels in California and I just found out they even have some in Kona, Hawaii —Is this a sign I should head back already?? I think so! But honestly though from the moment we arrived, everyone at The Wayfarer Hotel was beyond accommodating and on top of every little detail, which I really appreciated because its always the little things that make your stay that much more relaxing and memorable.

The room was so nice that we kind of slept in the first morning! The day before I had traveled back from Mexico just in time for this new getaway and these comfy beds just wouldn’t let me leave them! But you know I love my food, so eventually we made it into the communal kitchen for complimentary breakfast and enjoyed it vacay style!

Farmers Market_SB_TheWayfarer

Prior to this tip I had done my research (like the control freak that I am) to learn the best restaurants to visit and best way to get around. I had heard that The Wayfarer Hotel had an amazing location, but it wasn’t until I was there that I realized there was so much to cover by foot, you wouldn’t believe but everything is literally so close by! They do offer complimentary bikes to take around the area but the weather was so nice that we decided to put on comfy shoes and enjoy the Funk Zone this way. And if you haven’t been let me tell you it is so entertaining! From distinct wineries and restaurants that draw you in by the decor alone! To fun little boutiques, beautiful landmarks, the farmers market in main street on a sunny week day stroll but again, all at a walking distance from The Wayfarer Hotel. Sounds nice doesn’t it?? Keep reading to make the most out of your next trip.

WINE Tasting SB

This hotel has an agreement with a local winery that is literally around the corner which is called Paradise Springs Winery that when you mention you’re saying at the hotel, they will give you a complimentary wine tasting. So of course we made sure to stop by! We were greeted by the kindest woman who let us take our time enjoying each glass of wine while we marvelled at the modern design this winery has and of course take the oppounity to capture some photos —-Two bloggers traveling together remember?? Of course we were clicking away every 2 seconds— I love a girls trip!! So anyways, don’t forget to stop by this little gem because it was really fun part of our day, I fully recommend it.

POOL DAY at The Wayfarer Hotel_erikadvm

Of course our trip wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t actually enjoy the hotel’s amenities and that calls for a Pool day or in our case two pool days…

THE WAYFARER HOTEL 2

The hotel has a lovely view so it was such a joy to come back from lunch and layout for a few hours until dinner time and then it was off to more exploring! We came across this beautiful little Spanish looking restaurant with bugamvillea flowers all over called Loquita which was SO DELICIOUS! We had dinner here and ordered way too many appetizers plus the Paella which is a good size for two people. Out of all the restaurants we tried in the area, I would say this was my favorite one so I’m definitely going back.

Overall I had a really fun time! I had only been to Santa Barbara once before on a day trip, but there is nothing like being able to stay at a comfortable Hotel to fully enjoy your surroundings! Pacifica Hotels offers the small hotel experience for a good reason, the service will always be a personalized one that will ensure a highly pleasant experience like the one I had but always at an affordable price, it’s a win-win. I encourage you to look into their many locations for your next trip! I hope you found this helpful. There is much more traveling I have scheduled for the rest of this year so check back for my next adventure!

Hawaii Trip with Hyundai (New Kona Vehicle)

This past week I got to do something really exciting with HYUNDAI. I partnered with them to promote the new Kona Vehicle and test it all around The Big Island! They flew me and other Influencers to Kailua-Kona Hawaii (place where they got their inspiration for the car) and just explored the island for 4 days. It was such a fun adventure!!

First, let me say that I’ve had a long experience driving a Hyundai myself, so going into this I knew I could fully trust the company and feel confident about promoting their car. I would never post about something I don’t fully believe in. And I am extremely glad I was part of this media introduction because I was very impressed with this SUV! Specially by its advanced technology, but more not this later. First, for all of you who have not been to The Big Island before let me explain something I just learned on this first visit. The biodiversity of the island itself is insane! They have 8 micro climates, which means Hawaii is one of the most ecologically diverse locations in the world. It goes from one extreme to the next, a Humid tropical climate (how Hawaii always looked like in my head), to Winter dry, to monsoon, to Arid and semi-arid climates, to desert like dry, Summer warm and Summer cool. Crazy it’s all in one island right? Well it was the most perfect place to put this vehicle to the test and we certainly made the most of it!! In the everyday outings we drove it on all terrains… Volcanic rock scenery, secluded beautiful beaches, the wet tropical jungle, up the mountains where I swear I felt I was in Ireland and all in-between!

Hyundai Kona Erikadvm Hawaii Trip

Some of the most impressive features comes from their interior technology. The Kona connects with Amazon Alexa and Google Home plus the Blue Link Car System, so I downloaded the app as was quickly setting in the atmosphere of the car from my phone before I even got in the car! How cool is that? With Blue Link you can Lock and Unlock, Remote Start with cool or warm climate control, has remote car finder (HELLO so perfect for me! I always forget where I park) and so much more.

Plus Kona has the option of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay which we made the most of on these road trips, has an 8-inch color touchscreen with navigation, rear view monitor with parking guidance, rain sensing wipers, among other amazing features but my 2 favorite ones have to be the Head-Up Display which is a 8-inch clear display that pops-up with safety, navigation and audio information while you drive (great for those who easily distract like me) and the Wireless charger for you phone! I know, I know of all things… but the heart wants what it wants and mine was beating for it not to mention their phone retrieval reminder and how it’s compatible with Android and Apple Smartphones since I use both Google Pixel and iPhone. You just place it down and voilá it charges instantly while you drive, that easy!

Hyundai Kona Media Introduction Hawaii

“Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good”


I got to enjoy this trip with my other half Tom, who is also my photographer so this experience was extra special! I am lucky to have such a supportive man by my side. Honestly when it comes to traveling for work it can get stressful sometimes, there’s a lot of pressure to deliver high quality content, network and still trying to be in the moment but having someone on your team who gets that and knows how to calm you down when your perfectionist side is taking over is a true blessing! This trip was just the right balance of it because I had him with me, so I came back feeling overjoyed.

couples traveling

And not just that, but the entire Hyundai Team who came with us went above and beyond to make sure we had a magnificent time! Being an Influencer means you get to work with a wide variety of companies every year, some good and some not so great but let me tell you this team was beyond accommodating and prepared. I meant it, they perfectly planned the entire trip down to the very last little detail. From having members of their team waiting for us at every location with food and beverages, a fun itinerary with equally balanced leisure time to enjoy the cars as well as a variety of activities for us to try out all around the island, provided several suggested routes to take, you name it! They did it.

But above all, it felt more like a family atmosphere where everyone was genuinely connecting with one another and go to experience all the best the new Kona vehicle has to offer. To me all of this speaks very highly of their values and of who they are as a company. Having the opportunity to test out these exceptional cars was already an exciting experience but their kind attentions made it a truly memorable one and that will alway build genuine relationships.

Now for someone who doesn’t have a family of their own yet and who loves taking long road trips with friends, I have to say this is a perfect option! I have all this extra room inside but it’s compact on the outside. It is very smartly designed and honestly with all the safety features and far better technology I am sold on it. I’ve been considering upgrading my car this year and haven’t gotten around to it yet but I’m seriously considering upgrading to this car, I meant take a look…

Pre-Spring Look!

Who else is excited for Spring?? I am so ready to put away my winter stuff that I decided to do a Pre-Spring post. For this look I shot with a new friend photographer, her name is Jessica Vidana. We connected though Social Media (I love how that is so normal and easy to do these days) and I just loved her work! We ended up getting together in person and I’m so glad we did because besides being very talented, she’s also really sweet and easy to shoot with! So it turned out to be a very fun afternoon trying not to laugh long enough to take the photos, running away from scary pigeons at the pier and just creating beautiful content together.

And that’s the thing with blogging, I always end up connecting with other creatives out there, getting inspired by one another and it’s amazing seeing each other grow. This is one of the main reasons why I love doing what I do! Without Wander With Love I wouldn’t get the opportunity to meet all these amazing people around me, so I am always happy to share talented creatives I meet along the way in the hopes that you will be inspired too.

Now I know Spring isn’t here yet but I’m anxiously waiting for it! So on the rare days when we get warmer weather, I bring out my light dresses and enjoy my pre-Spring outfits. Plus it puts me in the mood to get inspired for the festival season! I feel like it’s just around the corner and there is so much to plan. Every year on the month of April there are so many exciting blogging events, parties, music to be enjoyed and fun road trips that I seriously cannot wait!!

But we’re still one month away so at least for now I can enjoy my little glimpses of Spring with dresses like this one. Reformation just knows how to cut a nice dress, they always work with the perfect fabrics and have them in the liveliest colors. I am forever obsessed with them them!

I also love that the cat eye sunglasses came back. I never really let this trend go but now I feel like I can wear them all the time, plus these are so affordable!! A must have for sure.

And off course my favorite accessories. If you know me, you know I love wearing dainty gold jewellery ALWAYS and FOREVER! Whether it’s a nice timeless piece of jewellery or a trendy affordable piece, I go with gold 100% of the time. I wear these with everything! I’ve linked them below…

Update: My Skin Care Routine!

I have shared some of my favorite skin care products before, but since then I have found other ones that work great for me so I thought it was time for an update! I have combination skin and depending on the seasons I sometimes get really tiny bumps on my the sides of my face. I usually let it run its course, until now! And you will never guess where I found this miracle worker…

But first, this isn’t a sponsored post. Not to say that if it was, this wouldn’t be my real opinion. I am just excited I found products that actually work for me, so keep reading if you want to find out why <3

  • First a couple of products that I rely on every week. I don’t use these daily but definitely game changers on my skin care routine:

Skin Authority - Wander With Love - LA Blogger

1. Skin Authority Acne & Oil Control. This is the first product I try from them. It helps with acne cause bacteria and minimize oil. I get some acne around my cheeks, not crazy bad but I decided to try it! After 3 months of using it, I am convinced this is what helped my skin look much healthier. I don’t use it daily, I started with 3-4 times a week at first and now only once a week and that has been enough. My face has really cleared up and I am now much happier! I wouldn’t be writing about it if I wasn’t <3  I would encourage you to look into this brand, talking to one of their representatives like I did and find out about your specific needs.

2. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence.  I first tried SK-II after receiving it in one of my goodie bags at a blogger event. I was very curious to see for myself and I am so glad I did! My skin looks more radiant, I can see the tone is more even and even a bit more firm. I honestly had my doubts about it but now it’s part of my routine. The only thing I don’t like is that it costs more than I care to spend on a beauty product but to me it does work so I will continue to use it. wander with love

MY DAILY ROUTINE:

1. First Aid Face Cleanser w/ Antioxidant Booster. This product is very very gentle on my skin but it gets rid of all the dirt and any makeup residue left from my makeup remover. I have been using it for over a year now and it’s still my No.1 cleanser.

Skin care update - Erikadvm

2. Plantioxidants Power Seed Menagerie Oil. I use this product daily and have been using it for 4 months now. I am beyond in love with it!! Like I said I have combiantion skin so I was scared of trying any oil but ever since I started using it my skin went from dull to radiant, fresh and hydrated. TRULY ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!

PLANTIOXIDANTS - LA BLOGGER - skin care routine

 3. First Aid Eye Duty Triple Remedy AM Gel Cream. I know I mentioned this brand above but again this isn’t a sponsored post, just products that I’ve been loving so I wanted to share. Anyways, this eye cream has made the skin around my eyes look much more illuminated and hydrated so I use it every day. Also it’s light weight so it doesn’t mess up my makeup afterward. I have been using this product for almost a year now and I am very happy with it! 

SKIN CARE ROUTINE WANDER WITH LOVE

4. Eucerin Baby ECZEMA RELIEF Body Creme. I use it for my Face, neck and chest area. Okay I realize I don’t have ECZEMA and that it’s a baby product BUT somehow this cream helped me get rid of the tiny little bumps I was talking about earlier. I don’t think it’s acne but it shows up from time to time depending on the seasons (very annoying). My mom has actually used this brand for years and I’ve had a good experience with their other products in the past, so I decided to try it.

I have been using it daily and I swear after day 1 results were immediately there. I couldn’t believe it! I don’t know how but this product gave my face a smoother look and feel and it’s crazy to think I found it at my local supermarket. After spending so much money on products that never worked, I finally got rid of this problem so I had to tell you guys!! Plus even though this product is rich, it does not feel pasty or oily. My skin feels moisturized and so healthy! It’s now a favorite in my drawer.

5. As far as Sunscreen depending on the sun exposure I will be under that day, I still use my Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face & Body Stick SPF 70 (which I posted about before) and I have recently been using the IT Cosmetics CC Cream SPF50 plus the powder for touch ups from IT Cosmetics as well, in shade Medium Tan. IN LOVE WITH THESE 3!!

MY NIGHT CARE ROUTINE:

I use the same face cleanser I mentioned above and then…

1. 100% Pure Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Potent PM Serum. I cannot say enough good things about this brand! I love it all! From their makeup products like their lipsticks (MY CURRENT FAVORITES) to their skin care products, I am obsessed. They are commited to creating the purest products and the results have been clear to me! Truly one of the best brands I discovered this year. 

100% PURE ERIKADVM - WANDER WITH LOVE

2. ESTÉE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II. On the contrary from my day eye cream, I love how rich this product is! When it comes to night time creams I feel like heavier ones are better for my skin. And I love the results I get from this one. It’s on the more expensive side for such a small container, but I personally feel like it’s been worth it. That said, I always encourage you to try for yourself! Maybe ask for a sample and see if this is right for you.

ESTEE LAUDER LA BLOGGER - BEAUTY ROUTINE

3. For moisturizer I have recently been using Eucerin Baby ECZEMA Relief Body Creme mentioned above since its been working so well on my skin, but for the past 7 months I had been using Perricone MD H2 Elemental Energy Hydrating Cloud Cream. It’s been so amazing on my skin that I still carry it everywhere I go. I will continue to use it and begin going back and forth between both.

UPDATE SKIN CARE ROUTINE WANDER WITH LOVE - erikadvm

These are all products that I have come to love. I believe in every one of them and I hope they help others too.

Old School For Fall

I’ve been feeling the red sunnies lately and these particular ones are my favorites! They’re from a brand I just discovered called Perverse, they have the cutest eyewear. Sunnies are always a great statement piece and when I got this polka dot dress on my birthday, I knew both would go great together. I just had so much fun wearing this look!

The fabric is on the heavier side which I love because it has a nice effect when I walk or turn. But I felt like it had a dressier look than I wanted, so I paired it with my favorite white shoes to keep things casual and wore it down the street to meet my girls for the day! Grabbed some coffee, we went shopping and had a fun time together. Sometimes a nice belted long dress is all a girl needs <3

Coachella 2017

This past weekend I attended Coachella 2017 Week 1 and it was so fun! I attended a couple of private parties, had fun with some of my other blogger friends and got to wear cute outfits. What’s not to love??

Many people attend for different reasons, but being a Fashion Blogger I think Coachella is a great opportunity to express your best sense of style! To try new things and just have fun with what you wear. Specially since I don’t live in San Francisco anymore where I could experiment everyday so here’s what I wore…

coachella 2017 erikadvm blogger

I wore this look to the POPSUGAR party and loved how easy it was to put together. The top is actually a pearl bralette from Forever 21, as are the necklaces and the powder blue shorts. I just loved how it went together and let’s face it, the desert was over 100 degrees that day so I needed the right outfit to be able to enjoy the weekend.

Festival Outfit Erikadvm copy

 

I paired it with this cute Joh Apparel blue jacket with fringe at the sides to keep things fun and interesting and added my new loves… My platform blush sandals from Kaanas. I’m obsessed with these! Plus they are really comfortable so they were perfect for Coachella <3

coachella popsugar 2017

Layering necklaces is always a must and I actually had a pearl choker that ended up going perfect with the bralette! So it looks like it’s part of it when in reality they are two separate items, just having fun with the outfit.

Rachel Zoe Coachella 2017

This look was for the Rachel Zoe or as they called it Zoeasis party! I had such a good time here. They set it up at this beautiful garden with roses everywhere! It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland at the queen’s castle but somehow mixed up with the fun Coachella vibes, perfect decor.

Coachella 2017 Look 1 Erikadvm

For this look I wore a BEBE jumpsuit, my PARED Eyewear (my new faves), added some checkers and arm jewellery and good to go! Honestly I really wanted some pop of color and this was just what I was looking for. I was comfy all day but still in that festival mood I was going for 😉 What did you guys think?

I took a few videos of the weekend that I will upload pretty soon, so stay tuned for more!

As always, thank you for reading.

Spring Getaway Look

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. Wearing light colors and fabrics, spending my days outside enjoying the sun, it makes my days so much better! Plus it’s finally the perfect weather for wearing rompers again and you already know how much I loved them. Like this one from Bishop & Young. The print is very subtle and beautiful and the colors complement each other perfectly. I’m in love with it! And it’s the perfect piece to pack on a little weekend getaway. Keep reading to find more key pieces to pack…

One of my best friends Melissa  , helped me take these amazing photos and do my makeup. We had the best time driving around and findings cute spots to shoot, hanging out all day and having sushi <3 (our favorite thing to do!) It was just a really great day. And I love how these turned out! She’s a great photographer and makeup artist. Right now she is working on getting an account focussed on her creative side, so I’ll share it with you guys when it’s ready so you can check her amazing work!

Spring'17 Erikadvm Wander With Love

Now, about achieving the perfect little “getaway look”. Here are 4 simple steps you can follow:

  1. Get a statement piece. In this case the hat would be mine, I like covering my face from the sun as much as I can. Plus it makes the outfit more interesting!
  2. Finding a cute but comfortable look. Loose clothes always help get those vacation vibes going. Plus you will be able to enjoy your trip better!
  3. Go light on the accessories. Just find a couple pieces that go with most of your outfits, that way you can mix and layer as you go. Gorjana always have the cutest!
  4. Comfortable shoes without sacrificing style! I always find that wedges are the perfect travel shoe. They give you the height but you can still walk in them all day and not get tired. Plus they work perfect day or night, so you save space! Win-win situation, right?

SIMON x Vogue Magazine Campaign

If you follow me on Instagram you have already taken a peek at my weekend getaway! But in case you haven’t I will share some of the exciting details with you. I got the pleasure of working with Vogue and SIMON a global Outlet company all across North America, Europe and Asia. They invited me and a great group of bloggers and influencers in the fashion industry on a weekend getaway to Palm Springs for a shopping spree! We got to stay at The Saguaro Hotel (which you probably remember for its colorful sights) and yes, it’s just as beautiful as in the pictures! And got to shop all day at Desert Hills Premium Outlet, a girls dream come true right? I mean we jumped from Gucci, to Prada, to YSL , Valentino and pretty much every single one of my favorite brands, where they were waiting for us with champagne to help us shop.

Now, I have to confess that I had never been to this outlet before so I honestly did not know what to expect, but I swear I fell in love with it! They had every single store I could think of, the deals we found were amazing and everyone I talked to was so nice, which to me is VERY important when Im shopping.

We then checked in at The Saguaro Hotel where we each got our own room and got to enjoy everything this beautiful hotel has to offer. My first impression was how vibrant and trendy this hotel is. I have seen it over an over in other people’s travels but had yet to see it for myself and let me tell you, I loved it! The rooms were very spacious and comfortable, the decor was original and artistic but what stood out the most was how friendly the staff was, they went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed.

And of course I pretty much died over every single blogger’s outfit this weekend, I love each of their unique sense of style and I’m pretty sure Im not the only one, am I right? We wrapped the night with a group photo with flowers that we may or may not have stolen from the centerpieces at dinner.. Can’t pass a good photo prop right??

But all joking aside, this was one of the most fun campaigns I have ever been in. I loved everything, from the amazing bloggers that came, to The Saguaro Hotel amazing employees and decor, to the helpful retail assistants at Desert Hills Premium Outlets, to the entire crew that made this weekend possible. As a blogger you get good events and not so good ones, but let me say with all honesty that this was most definitely one of the BEST ones! I loved sharing this experience with you and I hope you liked it too.

Spanish Dream

Hi everyone!

           Ready for the weekend? I know I am! And nothing says weekend more than distressed denim <3 This effortless style will take you anywhere from mornings at the Flower Market to Happy Hour with the girls. I wore this to brunch with my friend Karen in DTLA where we spent the afternoon shoe shopping and planing for next events at the end of the month. A girl has to be prepared after all;) And next week its the Yellow Conference which is a fun creative space for women entrepreneurs in the LA area. You learn how to run your own business, meet amazing people and get inspired! As I understand, tickets are sold out but you can still get a live stream pass, anyone interested email at erika@wanderwithlove.co to get a Discount Code.

But getting back to this look.. I decided to combine Effortless with Spanish vibes, so Im rocking my latina roots for this post and Im loving it! Its the end of summer right? lets have fun with it. So wether you’re a girly girl, minimalistic or tomboy just know that you can never go wrong with light denim, its all about how you style it. For casual-chic I like going light on the accessories and focus more on the shoes, it gives it a more clean and confident look;)
