Travel Diary: The Canyon Suites at The Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona


In my exploration of Phoenix my home base was The Canyon Suites at The Phoenician. The Canyon Suites is a glamorous and luxurious hotel. It is an escape.

Caldrea Little Luxuries Travel Kit

Caldrea Little Luxuries

Caldrea makes beautiful things that smell luscious. It started with household products. I am a fan of their dish washing liquid. I cook a lot and wash lots of dishes.
