PINK Nation Motel in Palm Springs, California!

Happy Thursday everyone!!

I am so excited to share my experience at the PINK Nation Motel with all of you, and I can easily say it was one of the best weekends I’ve had!  I had so much fun meeting some of the women in the company, some campus reps and the other sponsored stylists, and I know I made friendships that will last a lifetime! This past weekend was truly a blessing, and I cannot thank the members of Victoria’s Secret PINK as a whole for making me feel so loved!!

Once we landed in LAX, we immediately hopped on the PINK bus and headed to Palm Springs, California!  The company rented out the entire V Palm Springs hotel for us, and it was completely decorated in PINK!  Each room was stocked with PINK freebies and the cutest decor, and the hotel was complete with a beautiful pool, a fire pit, an elixir mocktail bar, and endless photoshoot opportunities!  I had the best time exploring beautiful Palm Springs, and California in general, and the entire weekend was truly a dream come true! 

All aboard the PINK bus!!

Each room was decorated in PINK decor with tons of freebies in the cutest beach bag!  Even the lightbulb in the lamp was pink!

The cutest snack bar stocked with goodies!!

Each morning we had the most delicious breakfast, usually consisting of fresh fruit and delicious vegan options!

 The coconut acai bowl was by far my favorite, and I’m pretty proud of how I made this one!  It tasted even better!

Total “desert vibes” in Palm Springs!  Saturday morning we went on a 3-4 mile hike through the beautiful mountains, and ended up at the base of a waterfall!  So much fun, and the best way to start the morning!

 It’s 105 degrees Fahrenheit, time for a pool party!

We were completely pampered with hairstyling with The Beachwaver, and I am completely hooked!  I loved how my stylist created perfect beach waves, and I definitely might be making a new purchase!

We met Grace Elizabeth, the new face of PINK, and she is even more gorgeous and kind in person!!  

To end the weekend, PINK threw us all a private party at Lulu California Bistro!  The entire second floor was decorated completely in pink, and we had private chefs preparing the most delicious pasta dishes for us!  Afterwards we went on a scavenger hunt through downtown Palm Springs, and ended the evening watching Clueless by the pool with mocktails in hand!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday, I will be posting close to every day from now on with pictures from my European vacation!  Right now we are currently in Rome, Italy, and we are loving every minute!  I apologize for not posting in a few days, a 14 hour red-eye flight and a 9 hour jump forward makes for some serious jet lag, and our wifi has been a bit unreliable!  Regardless, I am having the time of my life and I am so excited to share it with you!

Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone!  I hope you have had a wonderful week so far!

O M G I am so excited that it is finally May!!  This month is going to be filled with life-changing, incredible travels, and each place I am visiting is somewhere that I have never visited before!  It all starts on May 19, where I am hopping on a flight to LAX courtesy of Victoria’s Secret PINK, and I am staying at the PINK Nation Motel until Sunday, May 21!!  I am so thrilled to be in Los Angeles, and I cannot wait to lounge by the pool, hike in the canyons, take gondola rides through the mountains, and snap pictures at tons of Insta-worthy locations!!  I am going to be there with the other Sponsored Stylists, as well as some Campus Reps, and I’m excited to meet everyone! I don’t want to give away any more details, so stay in touch because I will be sharing an entire blog post when I return home!!

My other exciting trip of the month is my two-week long vacation to Europe with Doug and one of our best friends!! I am flying out on a red-eye flight Monday, May 22, and I will land in Barcelona, Spain early Tuesday morning!  I am so excited, because we are going to be exploring five different countries and seven different locations within those countries!

Our trip begins with Barcelona, then we immediately head to Rome, Italy to explore the Vatican, the coliseums, Old Rome, and (hopefully) the Trevi Fountain so I can recreate the infamous coin toss picture from the Lizzie McGuire Movie!

After Rome, we head for a day in Munich, Germany, followed by a day in Budapest, Hungary!  We are dying to check out the Széchenyi Thermal Bath & Swimming Pool, and lucky for us our Airbnb is right nearby!

From Budapest, we head to Paris, France where we will be spending the weekend!  Paris has always been my number one destination, and I cannot even express how excited I am to visit!!  We plan on seeing the Eiffel Tower, the Arc De Triomphe, The Louvre, the Love Lock Bridge, and the Notre-Dame!  Ally (A Touch of Tulle) and I are meeting up in Paris on Sunday, May 28, and we are having brunch at Ladurée, and then visiting Ob-La-Di, Café Kitsuné, Café de Flore, Café Julien, La Maison Rose, and having a picnic by the Seine River!

On Monday we head back to Spain, starting in Majorca!  Majorca is the place where I am hoping to have a truly soul-opening experience, and to fully embrace my surroundings (meditation on the Mediterranean Sea, yes please)!  After Majorca we are heading to Ibiza to explore the hippie market, the beautiful architecture, and to enjoy a boat party on the sea!  We then head back to Barcelona on Thursday, and catch our flight on Friday, June 2 back to the United States!  I cannot wait!!

Europe and California are both places I have always wanted to go, and I am thrilled to be sharing my journey with you!  Make sure you’re following my Instagram (tessa_noelle) to keep up with my daily adventures, and definitely stay in touch since new posts will be going up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday!  I hope you all have a beautiful Wednesday, and enjoy the sunshine!

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all have had the most beautiful morning, and use today to motivate your soul!  I officially have less than one month left of my junior year, and I cannot even believe it!!  Summer break is right around the corner, and I have huge plans (mostly relaxing and recharging)!

Being a Sponsored Stylist for Victoria’s Secret PINK, I was able to get my hands on the cutest new matching set for the spring season!  I chose the neutral gray color (because neutrals are the only thing I wear, no joke!), and I absolutely love the light blue band that runs down the leg!  I paired the matching set with the new floral lace bralette and my gold adidas, and I love how the hint of gold plays off of the light blue!  This cropped pullover is probably one of the softest tops that I own, and I know I’m going to get so much wear out of it throughout the upcoming seasons, especially paired with these adorable leggings!

I definitely recommend heading to your nearest VS PINK store to check out all of the new spring arrivals (including this matching set!), or check out the website with pjs and a hot cup of tea!!  I hope you all have a beautiful Monday!
