All white season is in full swing. #DUBAI #jumeriah #travel


Are you planning a trip to Dubai. Come in to view a lovers destination without distractions. Move out of your comfort zone and explore a little place called Jumeriah. It’s nestled in an area where love takes you to another level. Look no further she wants you to take her on a fantastic voyage.

Enter this oasis with a day pass from one of the local hotels. Get the exclusive access to the beach from your concierge.

Here are my top five things to do in Dubai while you’re in town. Aside from the tourism and you know what I mean about that, explore the most life has to offer.

1. Top Chef Cooking Studio
Tired of dining out which can be fun too, treat yourself to a cooking class that’ll get your mind to another place. There located near the beach at 196 Jumeirah Beach Road.

2. Tao Spa
Enjoy spa services, they have facials, massages, waxing, manicure and pedicures.

3. Abalone Cove Beach
Exotic and luxurious beach with excellent bar here is your option to visit..a must go for tourist and residents of Dubai.

4. Royal Mirage Tourism
Book the private safari tour and you’ll remember it forever.

5. Fun Beach Water Sports
Jet ski tour “with absolutely friendly guide, we all enjoyed in beautiful cruise near Burj Al Arab, recommend it for all.”

Above all have a wonderful time and live your best life. #beachiebeautyapproved

Hotel Highlight JW Marriott L.A. Live

I love going to an area of town where you feel that the world is yours. Downtown Los Angeles, comes to mind and the view from the JW Marriott brings me so much joy. You can relax in your room. Go out on the town eat, drink go to a movie or take an uber to the beach which is about 30 minutes without traffic. Catch this jewel at night and you’ll experience the city create a lighthouse for you to move in a way that you’ve never seen before. Any of the rooms are a delight and whose to say that a spa treatment wasn’t in the plan. Every girl or guy deserves a place haven to call home. This mother’s day treat yourself to some love.

It will be a journey worth exploring. #beachiebeautyapproved

Paris, France #beachiebeautytravels #winterwonderland

paris 2
Our winter wonderland extravaganza continues with Paris, France. A go to place to live, explore and shop. Our map takes us to a fashion stop like no other. Tour the eiffel tower to get a cool view of the city. Have lunch at the one the restaurants and be in awe of its beauty at the end of the evening when it lights up.
Slow down to take a visit at the Louvre museum , while there a peak at the Mona Lisa herself is all the rave. The museum is a small cost and you can take practically all day just viewing artifacts. After you have indulged in your favorite art scheme be sure to stop for a bit to eat. They’re  plenty of eateries around to take in the sites.
Champs-Elysées in winter is magical when you want to stroll with your love one. Rick Steves one of my favorite travel guys says so. As you make your way in the city you will notice lots of shops. Be sure to visit some, and keep me in mind.

Henna, Essential Oils and Other Middle Eastern Beauty Secrets in Dubai #dubai


Dubai is a multinational city. Being there, you will find beautiful women from all over the world. While their beauty is totally different according to their local beauty standards, there is something common between them. Every woman comes to Dubai has to try the traditional Middle Eastern beauty secrets, such as henna, essential oils, and others because this city has the best Oriental beauty products suppliers from all over the world.

Benefits of Applying Henna

Arab women believe in the magic meaning of applying henna. That’s why there are many wedding traditions related to applying henna. According to the ancient beliefs, henna can protect from evil, gives positive energy and increases the fertility. Dubai is the city where you can find the highest quality henna and enjoy elegant tattoos for about two weeks.

In the hot Dubai weather, henna will save you due to its cooling properties. Thousands of years ago, it was the only way for desert people to survive in hot weather.

And the final reason to apply henna, is its exotic beauty. You will be in the center of attention in any event with an elegant henna tattoo.

Essential Oils is a Must Have by Arab Women

Middle Eastern women use essential oils in all possible ways: they apply it on hair, on the body, add drops of oil in the bathwater and use it as an ingredient in facial creams and masks.

The highest quality of essential oils that you can find only in Dubai will soon make your hair thicker, your lashes longer, and the skin shiny.

The most common oils are argan, rose, and lavender oil. Along with their benefits for the beauty and relaxation, they have an amazing fragrance that will attract the man you love.

Turmeric and its Benefits

Turmeric facial masks are used by Arab women over the centuries. The main component of turmeric that moisturizer and exfoliator face and reduces redness is photochemical called curcumin. The turmeric has a great anti-inflammation effect.

Main benefits of using turmeric for beauty needs are as follows:

  • Facial hair control (applying turmeric masks on the problematic zones slows the growth of facial hair).
  • Anti – aging effect.
  • Anti – bacterial effect.
  • Makes skin more elastic.
  • Lights pigmentation.
  • Reduce dandruff and hair loss.

High-Quality Makeup Products

In Dubai, you are able to buy any famous beauty brand from all over the world. Women in Dubai are very choosy and will never use low-quality makeup products, which makes the competition on the beauty market higher and consequently the best quality of the best in the world.

Whatever you are looking for perfumes, lipsticks, mascara, eyelashes, or eyeshadows; in Dubai, you’ll find a huge variety.

While enjoying your time in Dubai on the beaches or while shopping, don’t forget about sun protection beauty products that, of course, also is well-represented in the city.

If you are still thinking to use these beauty secrets or not, I will remind you that Middle Eastern women are known all over the world due to their thick lashes, radiant skin and keeping the youthful beauty up to old ages.

Hofsas House_4_Ana Lydia Monaco_Ana Lydia Monaco Blog
After the wonderful stories of Hofsas House, the next panel successful writing & partnerships workshop taught us a bit about asking the right public relations agencies for business. The best thing we could have done of our blog is take this sitting. Kelly had some pretty great insights on how you should have your pitch letters ready to send out your current travel dates to different pr companies you wish to work with in order to get great assignments. She also mentioned that when asking for the work that its stickily business. Dress the part, ask lots of questions. Be sure that the company you’re potentially working for be in a position to give you more work. Take great photo’s of the sponsoring property and if you need anything or have an issue address it with the head person in charge.  So many other tips were shared in the workshop that were valuable and it was a delight to be in the room. As our workshop came to a close, we headed out to a place called Carmel Belle for lunch.


Carmel Belle is a small cafe down the way that has light bits from sandwiches to salads and specialty drinks. The spread was really nice, the people were happy to be there and the love of food brought us all together.



Everything was really good, and very thoughtful. A special thank you to Carmel Belle for their hospitality. Enjoy more delectable photos from our lunch. This trip was sponsored all opinions are my own.

Carmel, California #llblognotaconf


Carmel_Hofsas_House_Erin_Miller_HorsingAroundLA (1)Northern California boasts some amazing landmarks. Celebrating 70 years of serving the City of Carmel, this boutique hotel has the views and service to prove you’re in the right place. Its marvel beauty comes at a perfect time to explore the masses. Donna Hofsas and her husband Fred bought a few small cottages in the late 40s to begin what is now a 38 room phenomenon. Its European style was my favorite part, throughout the property its influence gives the place a unique vibe.

The mural is right outside the front of the hotel by Maxine Albro this piece was painted and competed in 1957.
Donna and Fred stayed on the property while it was being constructed. The family suite room 9/10 are available to guests today and are the original cottages Fred and Donna occupied. This property is amazing, with panoramic views of the ocean it truly takes your breath away. Upon arrival the hotel planned a special schedule for us to enjoy while we were in town. You too can have a special schedule catered to you and your party, just ask the front desk for recommendations and they will take care of the rest. Did I mention that Carmel is a pet-friendly and so is Hofsas House.

We checked into our rooms with wine and cheese waiting which was a nice treat from the drive. Hofsas House offers a variety of services. Continental breakfast is apart of your stay. With partners at six different golf courses in the area. A couples massage, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel walk by the sea passport, a walking trail, you can even have your room decorated for an anniversary, romantic getaway or birthday.

We met with Carrie Theis the owner who took great care of us, she made sure every detail was covered down to the food menu. As we headed off to the poolside meeting room, our first activity was honey tasting with Jake Resisdorf.
Bloggers_1_Ana Lydia Monaco_Lifestyle Bloggers Collective
This 14 year old entrepreneur started this business as a school project. He was so interested in the subject and how bees are treated he wanted to do more and Carmel Honey Company was born.  Did you know the honey bought in grocery stores  are fake? When Jake told us about how the nutrients are watered down and put on the self I have since stopped buying it. Honey has a lot of beauty capabilities. You can use it as an acne mask in the evening time before going to bed. If you have bad breath eat a teaspoon of it and then brush your teeth afterwards. If you’ve had hiccups you can eat a spoonful of honey may get rid of them.

As we wrapped up our honey tasting, dinner was on our minds. Dinner at Abalonetti’s came at a perfect time. The lighting of the restaurant was divine, service impeccable and the company and conversation made it worth every bite.

Fisherman’s Wharf

The food, let me just say that the food lifted you unto a place of being. I was stuffed by the end of the meal. Dessert came out and I almost passed out. lol

After dinner we had a girls mixer in our rooms and that was a real treat. As the first day came to a close the remaining days of the trip was too marvel. Come back to follow my journey in Carmel.

A special thank you to our organizer Padma Media from the Lifestyle Bloggers Collective sponsors for an amazing experience. Check out the swag bag we received.
