Man! This week has been a total blur of work, cooking, and shopping. My boyfriend and I decided that we are going to host a Friendsgiving this coming weekend and we are in full prep mode. Everything from buying holiday decor to testing out recipes two or three times at least. I will be documenting my Friendsgiving through Instagram stories this Saturday so feel free to watch me possible breakdown in complete tears. Well, hopefully that doesn’t happen (crossing fingers)!

So, I know this post is long overdue, but I finally had the time to pull these pictures off my camera. I can’t even begin to tell you how many pictures of hotels I’ve taken the past year that are just laying around.

Hotels like the Burj al Arab (Dubai) and the Bellagio (Las Vegas) are some to name a few. Though today, no hotel is probably more famous than the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore. Not only is it characterized by it’s three soaring towers, but probably it’s most famous feature is the infinity pool located on the 57th floor of the hotel looking out to all of Singapore and beyond.

Hotel Review // Mandarin Oriental Singapore

One of my favorite hotel brands has to be the Mandarin Oriental. Based out of Hong Kong, this hotel chain was one of the first luxury hotels that I’ve ever heard about. I was so in awe of the decor, design, and architecture. Or maybe I was more in awe because of the sticker shock I suffered by reading how much it would cost to stay just one night at one of their hotels. Either way, from that day on, it was my goal to stay at one and it finally came true this trip. So here is my review of the Mandarin Oriental Singapore!
