Imagine for a moment going on a glamping mini vacation. I found this on my solo retreat at Glampers Paradise. What is glamping? It is a way to enjoy the outdoors with a touch of glamour and wonderful amenities.
Upon my arrival, Jennifer Waller greeted me outside in front of her gorgeous patio. It was awesome to finally get to meet her in person. I knew by the location that I was going to enjoy my stay.
I sat down with her to talk about her beautiful Airbnb. It is a place where women can rejuvenate, rest and rediscover themselves. As women get older and especially during midlife it is important to find that balance.
Some of them are women that are becoming empty nesters, have a full-time job, and are married or single. Women that are undergoing these transitions tend to feel overwhelmed. They have raised their children and now ponder over what comes next in their life.
I loved the personalized touches. She had a lap desk ready for me because she knew I was a writer. Plus, coffee and tea. The small-plate snacks were delicious. I can’t say enough about her green juice in the mason jar. So good!
Her Shasta travel trailer is called the Peacock Mansion. You will see her peacock decor throughout her outdoor space and trailer.
Glampers Paradise is a place that offers relaxation and serves as a way to unplug. Also, as an opportunity to indulge in some self-love by booking a photo shoot. It’s the kind of place that you don’t ever want to leave.
Glamping and Playing Dress Up
Remember playing dress-up as a little girl? That is exactly what I did, only grown-up style.
I had the chance to put on some beautiful dresses and lovely statement jewelry. Jennifer had a way of making me feel right at home. She was the type of lady that I would have loved to have grown up with.
We had a wonderful evening with a fire too. It was so easy to unwind with a glass of red wine. Being outdoors under the stars and having an inspiring talk.
It reminded me of a slumber party. Guests can interact as much or as little as they’d like to. I’m a people person so I loved spending time with Jennifer. I found out more about her as a person and with her other business venture that I will cover in a future post or in my podcast.
The photo shoot made it feel that more special. When you are wearing a long gown, you feel empowered. You feel sexy and most of all you feel worthy.
Worthy enough to indulge in getting pampered and most of all simply being still. Rediscovering yourself without the to-do list, daily distractions or being pulled away from yourself.
