this giveaway package for two people includes:

• 2 round-trip coach airline tickets from the closest major airport to your home to the puerto vallarta airport  (the airfare portion of this giveaway is provided by ). ground transportation to and from the puerto vallarta airport also included. 

• a 3 night stay at the beautiful, boutique, beachfront  (includes all meals and alcoholic beverages!). located in gorgeous punta de mita, this hotel is a gourmet all-inclusive like no other. it’s tiny, only 8 rooms, private and pretty much perfect.

• 3 nights at the stunning  in downtown puerto vallarta. continental breakfast each day is included for two. transportation between hotels is provided. or, if exploring the city first and then heading to the beach is more your style, we’re happy to set it up that way, too.

• complimentary dinner at the famed .

oh man, it’s killing me and my entire office that we won’t be able to go on this trip. looks like an absolute dream for a perfectly relaxing start to your vacation. with food and drink included there won’t be anything to worry about except clearing your mind and perfecting your tan.

mexico4-1

after your stay at you will take an hour long scenic drive to the stunning  in downtown puerto vallarta where you’ll spend the second half of the trip (3 nights). this hotel  features three pools, extraordinary views of the city and perfect proximity to the cultural highlights of puerto vallarta. you’ll be walking distance from great museums, restaurants and markets. i love the idea of mixing a vacation with half city and half beach. spending time in the sand and sun is perfectly relaxing and than getting to explore a new city always leaves me feeling inspired.

during your stay at the you and your traveling companion will be treated to dinner at the famed by Thierry Blouet. considered the leading gourmet restaurant in puerto vallarta, this innovative venue is a must and judging by  you won’t be disappointed.

OUR CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP!

this year, i am super excited to be hosting more workshops. honestly, they take a lot of effort to put together but at the end of the day they are so worth it. i happen to be a “learnaholic” myself and these workshops are a way to expand my creativity. last weekend we had 3 calligraphy workshops in my studio taught by , who traveled from texas to teach everyone! calligraphy is such a beautiful skill so i was happy to watch all the students learning it.

PS we have a few more spots in our floral workshop on feb 1st.

 

i jumped in the last day to learn myself. man, it’s not easy! (but very fun) by the end of the class i was feeling a little better at it. i hold my pen the wrong way to begin with, so i felt like i was learning two new skills haha.

  

lauren taught these classes in color. she called it the designlovefest special 🙂 we set up our new workshop chairs (fiberglass shell chairs from , mostly white and a few pops of color) and i picked out some simple flower arrangements for the tables. we went to trader joes and bought a bunch of snacks for the students to enjoy while learning. mimosas and muffins in the morning and red wine and popcorn for the evening class. brain fuel.
