Tropical Paradise in The Heart of Austin


No Comments

Lake Austin Spa is an oasis on Lake Austin in gorgeous Austin, Texas! Catch it on a warm Spring or Summer day and you’ll have an almost tropical experience you won’t soon forget.

With crystal blue waters, the lake looks positively enticing as you sit and relax by the pool or on the patio in what can be the blistering heat of the Spring and Summer months.

I personally think this is a fabulous photo shoot location for aspiring models and actresses who are needing new headshots in an uplifting environment. I love the interior design, and the background of the water is just fabulous!

Lake Austin Spa Resort is tucked away in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. It has been ranked the #1 Resort in Texas & the Southwest by Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards.

Tucked away in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, our all-inclusive luxury spa resort offers a truly unique experience, where we cater to your well-being and provide a sanctuary for rest and renewal. – website

Stage of Country Music Awards 2016 (Dolly Parton received her Lifetime Achievement Award)

I can still hear it now… the strumming of guitar strings + the smokey voice of Chris Stapleton singing “Whiskey and You” at 2016’s Country Music Awards in Nashville. He was a nominee in various categories + received the award for “Male Vocalist of the Year”. The Bridgestone Arena was an incredible space to host the event, which was speckled with stars being cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd of country music fans. I’m so thrilled I was able to go! Country Music is definitely a signature Texan sound – very different from the sounds I’m used to in South Africa! (more…)
