I know I've been posting a lot about Oregon lately so today I'm going to change it up and talk about our recent visit to the Park MGM Las Vegas using the Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection (LHRC). You might have seen one of my earlier blog posts where we stayed at the Encore Hotel Las Vegas using Amex's Fine Hotels and Resort Program. Well, the Chase LHRC is almost exactly like that. We

In Part 3 of our Alaska Airlines Free Wine Tasting series, we are going to visit Hood River, Oregon! As a quick reminder, the way to get the free wine tasting is that you must have flown on Alaska Airlines from one of the 30 participating airports and will visit one of the listed Oregon or Washington wineries within a certain amount of days. You must be a Mileage Plan member and be able to

Umpqua National Forest is filled with an abundance of waterfalls hikes and it was hard deciding on which ones we wanted to do. The day we landed in Portland, we decided that we were going to drive down and spend the night in a city closer to Umpqua National Forest. We were flipping back and forth between staying in Eugene (+2 hours away from Umpqua) or staying in Roseburg (+1 hour away). We originally decided

When we first planned our Oregon trip, I knew that I wanted to visit Toketee Falls. I saw a lot of amazing photos and I couldn't help but want one for myself. When I was searching about Toketee Falls and how to get to the bottom, I couldn't find that much information on it. I figured that I must not be the only person so I thought I would start a Photography Series on how

Harriman Springs Resort and Marina is an incredible place to stay if you are looking for accommodations around Crater Lake. Granted, it's an hour away from the park, but the resort ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. Crater Lake only has two hotels: Crater Lake Lodge and Mazama Village Campground & Cabins. I've heard that these two places get booked out months in advance and it was true for us. Both

I know a one-day itinerary seems very short for Crater Lake National Park, but it's totally possible. When you're on a short vacation, you want to fit in as much as possible, right? Luckily, I've done all the leg work for you. We actually planned to go in the day before, but by the time we got up and drove to the park, it was already 2:30 p.m. We also waited another hour because there

I love wine. I can’t tell you how much money I’ve spent on wine because I’ll probably start getting depressed. Just kidding. Even though I’m no expert in wine, it’s something I’ve taken a liking to in the past couple of years. I hate going to a restaurant and not be able to pick a wine bottle that I know I would like. So, for the past couple of years, I’ve decided to slowly educate

Some of you might have heard that Christian Louboutin has just opened an outlet store here state side. Well, you heard right! This is the very first Christian Louboutin Outlet in the United States and it is located at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon, California. It's a short drive from Palm Springs or about an hour and a half drive from Los Angeles with no traffic. There is plenty of shopping to do

I’m excited today to share my experience using the Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts Program for the Encore Hotel in Las Vegas. If you happen to have read my previous blog post, you would know that we stayed at the Venetian Hotel on Friday and Saturday night. We actually weren’t planning on staying Sunday night except our flight got cancelled so we opted to fly out the next day for a nice $200 flight credit
