An Airbnb Experience in SF

San Francisco Victorian Home Tour - New Darlings Travel Lifestyle Blog

Thank you to Airbnb for partnering on this post and gifting us this beautiful experience in SF. As always all thoughts & opinions are our own.

During our time in San Francisco, we had the pleasure of joining Jay, an SF resident for almost 40 years, on a Victorian Home Walk. We strolled through the curving streets of SF for two hours together, learning about the various types of architecture and the city’s landscape design. You might remember the floral design experience we signed up for in Paris a few months back. We enjoyed ourselves so much last time, that we decided to do another and were excited to partner with Airbnb on the experience in San Francisco. This afternoon did not disappoint. READ MORE

Our Favorite: Travel Bags

The weekender, the duffle, the travel bag…whatever you may call it, there’s always that one bag you bring with you on every trip. We’re spending the next few days in San Francisco, escaping the heat and exploring the city a bit, so we thought we’d share a round up of our current favorite travel bags for your next adventure.  READ MORE

Palm Springs Summer 2017

His: UO shirt (old — similar) | Everlane shorts | Prada shoes | Ray Ban sunglasses

Every year we spend a few days in Palm Springs. It’s not really an escape, temperature wise, but there’s nothing like a change of scenery to feel creative and refreshed. We found a beautiful Airbnb and spent the weekend shooting some fun projects, BBQing, and hanging poolside with Henry. He wasn’t a fan of the pool, which crushed our pet-parent hearts, ha!, but it was really nice having him on a little trip with us, even if it was just a few hours away. Here’s a few photos we snapped that weekend… READ MORE

Scandinavian Cruise: Pt. II Berlin, Germany


We were going to wrap up the second half of our Scandinavian cruise (Tallinn, Stockholm, Berlin, St. Petersburg and Helsinki) in a blog post today, but after going through the photos we realized we took a ton in Berlin. From coffee shops to iconic landmarks, I guess we really enjoyed ourselves there! Click “read more” to see our photo journal from Berlin. READ MORE

Scandinavian Cruise Pt. I


A few weeks ago we embarked on a two week cruise on the Regal Princess through Scandinavia, which began in Copenhagen. We were super excited to be reunited with some of our favorite blogger pals and explore new parts of the world we didn’t have the opportunity to visit before. We’ve said it in the past, but cruising really is the best way to see so many different places so quickly. It’s like a crash course in each country and although we sometimes (okay, most of the time) felt like we didn’t get to see enough of each place at every port, it really gave us an idea of what cities we wanted to go back to and plan a longer stay.

Formal Nights with Princess Cruises

We’re definitely guilty of indulging in a pajama day on the weekends or opting for a cozy night in, but there’s something to be said about how you feel when you dress up and pull yourself together. Like many we were completely obsessed with Mad Men, and part of the reason why we tuned in each week, aside from how incredibly bad ass Donald Draper was, had to do with the focus on fashion. Dates, parties, baseball games, even flying on plane…people used to simply dress up more for the occasion. READ MORE

PARIS: What To See

After going through literally hundreds of photos from Paris, we figured we’d break down our time there in a few posts. What to See, Where to Eat, Where to Stay (we shared three beautiful airbnbs a few days ago, click here if you missed it), and Where to Shop.

To keep things going, here’s a few favorite places that went we to that are must see’s in our book. Scenic views, beautiful parks, famous museums, and more! READ MORE

A Flower Workshop in Paris

While in Paris, we had the pleasure of learning from one of the city’s great floral designers and owner of Les Fleurs de Pauline. We set up the workshop through Airbnb’s new Experience section on their website and had a pretty fun afternoon creating our own bouquet and chatting about the importance of florals in Paris.

Blushing in Paris

Ah, Paris! We completely fell in love with the city and got super lucky with our Airbnb being super close to so many great cafés and shops. (More details about the apartments coming soon! I know some of you guys are planning trips to Paris, and were inquiring about where we stayed.) We snapped some photos on the way to breakfast at Holybelly one morning, while passing through this pretty square. It was quite windy that day so layers were ideal and gave me the opportunity to bust out this leather jacket that has been collecting dust in my closet. 😉 I toned it down with a pleated blush skirt and feminine off the shoulder top.
