Hi my loves,

Super excited to share with you my latest media trip with Toyota, this time we went on a road trip to Santa Barbara. It is was all about celebrating Camry’s Quince.

And may ask why Quince? yes like Quinceañera, we were celebrating the Camry being the best sold sedan for 15 years.

We drove the all New 2018 Camry XSE V6, from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara, and making a few stops on the way to capture a few pictures with amazing along the Pacific Coast Highway.

The car is pretty sweet and a part from looking super sporty, the things that I enjoyed the most were:

  • 301-horsepower
  • Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)
  • Rear CrossTraffic Alert (RCTA)
  • Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging
  • Entune™ 3.0 Audio Plus with JBL® w/Clari-Fi, Connected Navigation and Entune™ 3.0 App Suite — includes
  • 8-in. touch-screen, AM/FM CD player, MP3/WMA playback capability, nine speakers in nine locations

And can we talk about the grill and rims and the MPG were amaing, we got around 32 on highway!


We checked-in at the Kimpton Canary Hotel, it was our first staying in Santa Barbara, we have visited before but it was always for day trips.

The hotel is so magical, cozy and so centrally located, within walking distance to everything.

We walked around to take picture, then headed to our room to get ready for dinner.

We all met in the lobby, we all met with the Toyota team and all the influencers that were also invite to this trip.

And then all walked to dinner, the restaurants was a few blocks away. It was the perfect sweater weather.

The following day we all met for breakfast, followed by a dance class and a mani/pedi session and I loved how the had a Camry color palette.

 I chose the Midnight Black metallic for both my mani and pedi.
