i’ve been to events here but never had the chance to stay the night. the location is perfect and all of the room details are cozy and modern. there is also a killer wine bar right down stairs which is an added bonus to staying the night!

the swedes really do have such great style and taste. i love the traditional style of the rooms mixed with pops of modern colors. the hotel is housed in an old townhouse which gives it a very comfortable and relaxed feeling.

| torres de paine, chile

joanie went here on her honeymoon and said it was amazing. i love how it’s built into its surrounding so it barely stands out or takes away from the natural beauty of the area. how about those hanging chairs?!

BRI’S TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

travel essentials | designlovefest

something i take pretty seriously is being prepared, especially when i travel. i have a list of items that i bring with me on the plane so i can stay hydrated, stress free, and comfortable. knowing exactly what i’m going to bring and having a ritual of sorts is really helpful in maintaining some sort of control over my crazy travel schedule.

i’ve been really open on my blog about the fact that i deal with anxiety on a pretty regular basis. i’m able to manage it successfully most of the time but there are circumstances, like travel, that increase my anxiety and stress level (a lot). i’ve wanted to manage it as naturally as possible through therapy, breathing exercises, etc. and one thing i’ve found that is really helpful to me are products from a brand called . they are made from a mixture of flower remedies and are all natural and non-habit forming which is really important to me. they offer a variety of products but i personally think the remedy spray and the work best for me.

i originally heard about Rescue from a mom friend of mine who used the products to calm everyone in the family down during stressful situations and she recommended i give it a try. stress is inevitable so i always have something on hand to help me manage it so it doesn’t become debilitating and keep me from being able to live my life. have you ever tried products? do you get stressed when you travel? what are you tips and tricks to trying to stay calm? i’d love to know.
