Travel Guide: Fes

{About}
Fes el-Bali, or old Fes, is the oldest walled city in Morocco and the largest car-free zone in the world according to UNESCO. With an estimated 9,000+ tiny, maze like streets, getting lost (like really lost) is inevitable. The high ocher colored walls that once protected the city, now serve as a sort of time-warp barrier between daily life in the souks, which continues in its rhythms much as it always has, from the rest of the city and the 21st century.

Wardrobe Essentials: Statement Earrings (Under $50!)

Wardrobe Essentials: Statement Earrings (Under $50!)
Its that time of year when wardrobes can start to feel more than a little stale. Lots of black, lots of layers, thermal everything. At the same time, with spring on the (distant) horizon, investing in anything more for cold weather seems like overkill. A new accessory like an affordable pair of statement earrings can help breathe some life into winter wardrobes and transition to warmer outfits as well. Here are some great options under $50!

Travel Guide: Atlas Mountains

{About}
The Atlas Mountains are truly breathtaking. Staring up at them it somehow feels as if you've arrived at the edge of the earth, which if you consider that the vast Sahara desert is on the other side it is perhaps an accurate feeling. There is a sense of being very small and yet also having incredible perspective, and when the afternoon light hits the mountains and everything glows softly yellow there is a definite kind of magic to it.

{Stay}
We stayed in the Ourika Valley at the Kasbah Bab Ourika but another more luxe option that isn't too far away is the Kasbah Tamadot which I've also heard great things about. The Kasbah Bab Ourika is truly an escape and I would highly recommend making time for a visit here. The interiors are incredibly well-designed with plenty of nooks to tuck away in and feel as if you have the place to yourself.
