Our Stay at Breathless Cabo Resort + Spa

Our Stay at Breathless Cabo Resort + Spa | adoubledose.com

We are SO excited to share our stay at Breathless Cabo Resort + Spa. We had the MOST incredible experience there. From the moment we were picked up from the Cabo airport by our hilarious driver who greeted us with beer, to the moment we left the resort, our time was nothing short of amazing. We seriously had THE best time, and we hope that is reflected in our pictures and videos. Be sure to check out our vlog (we apologize for the newbie editing; this is our first one!) to see all the behind the scenes, and highlights of our trip!

Spa Day At Hotel Crescent Court

Spa Day at The Hotel Crescent Court | adoubledose.comSHOP THE OUTFIT

Who doesn't love a spa day? On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of getting to experience the amazing spa the Hotel Crescent Court. Many of you all may recognize it from this past RewardStyle conference a couple of weeks ago. Not only is the actual hotel gorgeous, and in a great part of Dallas (if you all are visiting Dallas, or have never been before, you should definitely go check out the hotel, and their spa!) They are actually about to undergo a huge renovation, which I am sure will be incredible!

The Spa at Hotel Crescent Court is a private health and fitness club that offers hotel guests and members fitness programs and spa treatments, as well as a steam room and sauna. The gym had every piece of equipment you could ever need, and they even had fruit-infused water, my favorite! They also have a gorgeous pool with cushioned lounge chairs, and a waterfall.

Our Stay At The South Congress Hotel

Our Stay at The South Congress Hotel | adoubledose.com

This past week, we had the pleasure of staying at the South Congress Hotel. It is a boutique hotel located in one of our favorite parts of Austin, South Congress. What we love about Austin, especially South Congress, is that there are a ton of restaurants, shopping, and bars, all very walkable!Our Stay at The South Congress Hotel | adoubledose.com

{ Hat | Shirt Similar Here | Shorts | Wedges | Bag }

We used to eat and walk around this street all of the time when we went to school in Austin, HOOK 'EM, so it is always fun to be back! This hotel was actually not even around when we were in school, and was just built a couple of years ago. We hadn't been back in this area since we moved to Dallas, and we honestly fell in love with it. It is super close to so many great spots, including one of our favorites, Magnolia Cafe. There is also a Torchy's Taco very close by, as well as a ton of other restaurants. You could easily get around this area without access to car, which is great if you're visiting from out of town. We also walked to get fajitas from Polvo's, a green juice at The Soup Peddler, and gelato at Dolce Neve (all about a 10 minute walk!)

Our Favorite Spots in Dallas: Lower Greenville | adoubledose.comHappy Monday! We just got back Saturday afternoon from a quick stay in Austin at the South Congress Hotel (full post coming on that soon, we LOVED it!), and were supposed to be off today to Cabo for a fun few days at the Breathless Cabo by the marina.

We can't wait to show you all of our trip once we make it out there! SHOP THE OUTFIT

We are kind of embarrassed to say we have lived in Dallas for over three and-a-half years, and haven’t really posted about our favorite spots before! Okay, so maybe it is kind of for good reason 😉 Honestly, we are probably bantering 90% of the time we are out in Dallas, so there’s a good chance you have seen us at one of our frequent spots in an argument, eek! 

Dallas is such a FUN city. There are a ton of great restaurants, amazing shopping, workout classes, and fun outdoor activities. You can’t go wrong! Scroll to the bottom for our breakdown of our Dallas Do’s!Our Favorite Dallas Spots | adoubledose.comOur Favorite Dallas Spots | adoubledose.com

  • Camelback Mountain:

As far as activities, we went to Camelback Mountain and hiked the less rock-climbing side (the Cholla trail). It was still a really good workout, but not like rock climbing, like the Echo side. We would definitely recommend it! We actually ended up walking another 45 minutes afterwards to the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall to walk around and eat something! We were STARVING, per usual;)

The Westin Kierland Resort + Spa

Our Stay at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa | adoubledose.comThis past week, we had the pleasure of staying at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. From the incredible weather, gorgeous resort grounds, and incredible food, we had an amazing time while we were there. Our Stay at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa | adoubledose.comIt is only about a two-and-a half-hour flight from Dallas, and just a quick 20 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. We used Uber, and it was super easy and quick! What 1we loved the most was that they are a quick walk to the Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter, which has tons of restaurants and shopping, which we definitely took advantage of. We ate restaurants like True Foods Kitchen, Breakfast Kitchen (their pancakes are AMAZING), and stores like Madewell, Anthropologie, and DryBar. Does it get better than that?!     Our Stay at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa | adoubledose.com

The resort itself has over 730 rooms, including 55 suites. We loved that the resort highlights Arizona’s colors and textures throughout the grounds. The room was very spacious, and had the comfiest beds. They even left a chocolate and some lavender essential oils every evening to get in some relaxation before bedtime. Our Stay at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa | adoubledose.com Our Stay at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa | adoubledose.comOf course, one of the most important parts of any hotel to us is the gym. They have a 24-hour fitness studio equipped with treadmills, bikes, free weights, cable machines, and weight , machines. They also offer New Balance Gear Lending (you can rent tennis shoes and workout gear!). They also offer daily fitness classes, including yoga, and have two tennis courts. While this is not part of the hotel, we did get some suggestions from the super helpful concierge there on hiking Camelback. We opted to hike the Cholla side, which is still moderately intense (less crazy than the Echo side, which is a lot of rock-climbing). It took us about 2-3 hours (of course, it included a TON of pics and yoga poses, duh!), and we really did have a lot of fun doing it. The climb up was definitely easier than the climb down. There were a few close calls when it came to falling right on our faces, haha!Our Stay at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa | adoubledose.comOur Stay at the Westin Kierland Resort + Spa | adoubledose.com

Nike World Headquarters

Nike World Headquarters | adoubledose.comThis past week I was fortunate enough to travel to Portland to experience the Nike World Headquarters. If I could sum it up in one word (okay, two) it would be Disney Land. It was incredible! I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but whatever it was, if you could imagine the coolest people (I mean, they design THE most innovative (and cool) products surrounded by most beautifully landscaped grounds, there you have the Nike campus! 

During my two day trip to Portland, the program was focused on Nike Women. I remember my driver saying on the way to the hotel the first night, ‘Nike will have you busy from dawn to dusk,’ and boy was he right! I’m not complaining, though! I am all about fitting in as much as possible and experiencing the most you can. On the first day,  there was an optional yoga class taught by the talented Krissy Jones bright and early (6:30 A.M.)—luckily, Portland is within the Pacific time zone, so it didn’t feel too early! After yoga, we headed back to the hotel to get ready for our big day ahead!
