Inside Katherine Power's Chic Cabo San Lucas Getaway!

To celebrate the beginning of summer, our very own Katherine Power was sent packing on an uncharted trip to Cabo San Lucas, and despite her protests – we finally got her offline and off the grid for a few days of uninterrupted leisure. (*High five ladies!) Apart from her passport and a bottle of SPF, the only other essential we couldn’t let her leave the office without was…Essie nail polish, naturally. Because when isn’t getting a mani/pedi a trip prerequisite? Herewith, Katherine…
