Favorite Travel Instagram Accounts to Follow

I don’t know about you but I draw so much inspiration from accounts I follow on Instagram and I’m always looking for new ones. I thought I would share with you my favorite travel accounts to follow and why. Enjoy! Xo

1.@rebella 

If you have a serious case of wanderlust you need to follow Rebella. I absolutely love following this account and living vicariously through all of the incredible places they travel. Their content (images/video) are next level and I aspire to create content that is of this caliber. I have a weakness for any location with a coastline. If you are a fan of the tropics like I am, give Rebella a follow.

The Paige Show

Hi Everyone! I don’t even know where to begin but today is April 6th, the day the first episode of my talk show premieres! I’m so excited to share this project with all of you. It has been a long time coming and I can’t wait for you all to see it.

How it began:

I have always loved talking to people and listening to their story/struggle/and what motivated them to do what they love to do. The people that I’m surrounded by every day have some of the most incredible stories and I was inspired to share them with you. You see these individuals on your tv screen/social media/etc. but who are they really? I hope my show helps you to get to know the people you look up too or get inspired/motivated by someone you hadn’t heard of before. I have put countless hours into making this show everything I have envisioned in my head and it’s been fun to see it really come to life.

To the People Involved:

I just wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to everyone that has helped make this show happen. Your encouragement and advice hasn’t gone unnoticed. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in my little idea and helping me to make it grow into something incredible.

Xo,

Paige

5 Tips To Clear Skin

Perfect skin? Yeah right! IMPOSSIBLE! Think again….

I wish I could say I was one of those people that has never had a pimple in their life but unfortunately …I’m not. I thought acne stopped after the teenage years but here I am at 23 still struggling with break outs. My skin isn’t perfect by any means but I’ve found ways to help prevent acne! Hope this helps and feel free to leave any tips or tricks that I didn’t mention in the comments below!

1. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

This was actually recommended to me by my dermatologist which was amazing because it’s only $6 and can be found at any drug store! I cleanse my face with this in the morning and at night. Cetaphil is great because it doesn’t have any added perfumes that might make you break out. It also doesn’t contain any ingredients that will dry you out. It’s super gentle and great for the skin.

2. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

The Cetaphil moisturizing lotion was also recommended by my dermatologist. It’s great to hydrate your skin after cleansing and doesn’t leave the skin greasy or oily. It is hypoallergenic and also fragrance free!

3. Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation

After cleansing and moisturizing I apply my Clinique Acne Solutions foundation. I cannot say enough good things about this product! I love to try new foundations but always end up breaking out. There is no other foundation I would recommend if you have sensitive skin or are prone to acne.

4. Water

I am not the biggest fan of water. It’s always so hard for me to even finish a whole water bottle in a day but when I started drinking 64oz every day it did wonders for my skin! Water helps to flush toxins out of your body and is great for rejuvenating your skin. Try to drink 64oz every day and I promise you will see a difference not only in your skin but also in your energy level!

5. Eat Healthy

I cut out dairy, eggs, and processed sugars. When I did this I saw a huge difference in my skin. If I want to sweeten food or a smoothie I will usually use a natural sweetener (banana, honey, or agave nectar). This also helped my energy levels and just made me feel better overall!

Hope these tips helped! Let me know your thoughts! Xo

Lets Talk Body Goals

The term body goals is so funny to me. What even are body goals? Is it a term only reserved for 5’11 Victoria’s Secret models or is it a term used to describe Olympic Athletes? Both? So why don’t you classify your body as #goals?

I think it’s safe for me to assume that each and every one of us have been self conscious about something at one point in our lives. It’s human nature not to be confident 100% of the time. So, why do we pick out every little flaw instead of picking out the beautiful things that make us who we are? Simple…we compare ourselves to others too much. We are always trying to be that guy/girl over there. Little did you know, there is someone pointing at you saying I want to look like him/her. Remember nobody is perfect!

The best thing I ever did was get rid of my scale. I was focusing so much on a number that it didn’t matter how I looked. Remember muscle weighs more than fat. I probably weigh more than I used too but I’m happier in my own skin and that’s all that matters. Everyone is genetically different and thats what makes people so beautiful. Life wouldn’t be as fun if everyone looked the same. Embrace your curves or your height or whatever makes you different from the person sitting next to you. I could list off 20 things I’m insecure about but dwelling on them isn’t going to do anything. Give yourself goals, write them down, and achieve them. Get outside and exercise with a friend if you don’t enjoy going to the gym alone. Eat healthy but remember you deserve a cheat every now and then. Encourage the people in your life to do the same.

We are all our own worst critic and the way you see yourself isn’t usually how the rest of the world sees you. I know this because I’m also a perfectionist. I have high expectations for myself in every avenue of life and will work my hardest to achieve them. Go easy on yourself from time to time. You deserve a rest day and vacation. Don’t let little things people say hinder you from achieving something great. You are beautiful and handsome! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Favorite Travel Destinations

Travel is an investment. I have learned more from traveling and experiencing other cultures than I did in my 16 years of education. There is just something about hearing someone else’s story, traditions, and struggles that brings an element of appreciation to ones life. Being able to go somewhere new and experience a new normal is a learning experience in itself. Nothing will ever be able to compare. Below I have listed my favorite places I’ve ever visited. Where should I go next?

1. Paris, France

Ever since I was a little girl I always loved Claude Monet and Degas. My mom would read me children’s books about them and I was just fascinated by their art. When my grandmother took my family to Paris for the first time at 8 years old I fell in love. We stayed at the Jolly Hotel Lotti and would walk next door to the Godiva Chocolate Store every afternoon. She took me to Monet’s house where he would paint water lilies and I even got to stand on the green bridge that he painted in the majority of his pieces. We went to the Lourve, Rode around the Arc De Triomphe in a double decker bus, visited Versailles, and so much more. I remember the whole trip like it was yesterday. Paris is just a magical place full of life, love, and culture. I can’t wait to go back some day.

2. Moorea & Bora Bora, French Polynesia

If you’re in need of a tropical vacation then Moorea and Bora Bora are the place for you. These islands are so beautiful they look like a desktop screen saver. No filter needed! I went to Tahiti in 2014 with my family and stayed at the Pearl Beach Resort in both Moorea as well as Bora Bora. Truly the most beautiful and relaxing place I’ve ever been. It’s a great place to disconnect from all the stresses in life and enjoy a tropical drink overlooking crystal clear water.

3. New York City, United States

When I was 15 I lived in New York for 6 weeks and had the most amazing time. It’s a city that never sleeps. There is something going on every night of the week. I enjoy the fast paced city and how everyone is always working towards a goal. Nothing compares to the busy excitement that occurs on the streets of New York City.

4. Venice, Italy

Venice is such an incredible place. My grandparents lived in Pallazo on the Grande Canal. I would look over the balcony at the water taxis and gondolas passing by. It’s a magical city on the water. I would recommend visiting at some point in your life. There is no place like it.

5. Belize

In 2016 I visited the country of Belize and learned so much about the culture and the people. They have the most beautiful ruins and caves you can explore. I also went zip lining, cave tubing, snorkeling with sharks, and so much more. There is really a lot to do for an outdoorsy individual. This trip was more of a learning experience for me than anything. There is a lot of poverty in Belize and it really put things into perspective. It opens your eyes to what really matters and the things we all take for granted.

Favorite Coffee Shops

Rise and Shine! My ideal December day consists of sitting in a quaint coffee shop with a pretty latte in hand, listening to the sound of the rain outside the window. Anyone who knows me knows I am the biggest coffee fan. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite California based coffee shops. Enjoy! Xo

1. Alfred’s Coffee

If you’re looking for an amazing cup of coffee and an aesthetic Instagram photo you’ve come to the right place. Alfred’s not only has the best mocha latte but also is one of trendiest spots in Los Angeles. It’s a bit pricey for a cup of coffee but definitely worth it.

2.Verve Coffee Roasters

I was first introduced to Verve in Santa Cruz, California and fell in love. At the time they didn’t have any shops in LA so it was my treat every time I went up to the Bay Area. Now they have a few coffee shops in LA and they are all amazing. They roast all of the beans in Santa Cruz and take time to perfect each cup of coffee. The interior is a modern industrial feel and definitely makes for a great place to catch up on work or study. If you go you also have to add a gluten free donut to your order. They are delicious!

3. Intelligentsia Coffee

I came across Intelligentsia in Venice, California on Abbot Kinney. The interior is definitely an industrial feel with exposed piping and wooden beams but it adds for a cool element. They take time to craft each cup of coffee and you can tell they love coffee as much as you do. My mocha latte was perfect and topped with a pretty foam heart. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
