5 Warm Weather Getaway Ideas


I know the winter can seem long, even living in Portland. The days can be cloudy, rainy with only small bursts of sun. People say that your first winter here is the hardest and they aren’t kidding. I haven’t had to deal with a full season of winter in almost three years so I’ve been in for a rude awakening.

Paul went crazy buying jeans when we first moved here because he only owned shorts when we moved here. I just finally got caught up and order pants and sweaters to replace my year-round Cali wardrobe of sundresses. I’m definitely craving warmth and sunshine right now to break up all this grey.

If you’re feeling just blegh about the weather, here are a couple of my favourite warm weather getaway ideas that I would suggest to get your summer fix! (more…)

Aloha From Hawaii!



I’m finally taking a REAL vacation and am off to Maui, Hawaii for the next little bit. So far, I plan on attending the Old Lahaina Luau, eating Shave Ice and chilling poolside at The Four Seasons Maui + The Fairmont Kea Lani. We will probably drive part of the Road to Hana, but I’m not sure if my motion sickness will be able to handle the whole route. I plan on wearing one of those patches behind my ear, so hopefully that will help.

I’ll be back with lots of new posts next week. In the meantime, you can follow along on journey on Instagram @ThisBeautifuDay + Twitter @helloLisaNg. Have you been to Maui before? If you have any suggestions of things to eat, see and do – please feel free to share them in the comments.

Pssst! If you’re thinking of booking a trip – check flights here on Hawaiian Airlines.
