Baja Hotel by Bunkhouse


Happy New Years everyone!  We took some time to reflect on a few of our absolute favorite discoveries and products of 2018, mostly new plus some favorite oldies we brought back into rotation.  Life is all about experiences and relationships so if you’re on the hunt for your next vacation with family or friends and need inspiration on a great unique hotel, we’ve got you covered.  Looking for a good movie or binge-worthy show, check out our favorites.  Get pumped with a great new podcast or upgrade your self-care or fitness routine.  We’ve limited this list to our most-loved people, places, and things and hope you’ll find something fun and inspiring to usher in the New Year.
