Approximately two weeks ago, my husband and I vacationed on the beautiful island of Bermuda. We loved it! Beautiful island, friendly people, delicious food, and lots to do. Before booking our trip, we researched Bermuda and learned that it offered a lot of daytime activities, relaxation, and romance for couples. We also learned that it was not a party island. With a new baby and a busy schedule, my husband and I desired a vacation where we could relax, refresh, and spend quality time together. Bermuda gave us what we needed, and we can't wait to fo back. Although we were there for only four days, we packed a lot into our short trip. Here are my top five from our trip to Bermuda.Read More
he thing I will remember most about my trip to Edinburgh is the charm of its people. Starting with our first cab driver who gave us a layout of the city (Old Town v. New Town); the friendly local who recommended the best bus tours for first timers in the city and shared a few jokes with us; and the random stranger who offered to pay for my coffee. The heart of any city is its people and with Edinburgh, I left inspired by the kindness we experienced.Read More
Last week I spent a few days on a girls' trip to Kingston, Jamaica for Jamaica Carnival 2016. I haven't visited my island home since 2010 so the trip was long overdue. I was excited to see members of my family who I haven't see in a long time and to visit some of my favorite places in Kingston. Below is a recap of my trip.Read More
I spent the Christmas holidays in Florida with my sister, nephew, brother-in-love and extended family. While I was visiting the Sunshine state, I knew I also had to catch up with one of my BFFs, J, who lives in Orlando. After a night of fun and laughter in South Beach, we decided we wanted to have brunch. For us, brunching is an old-time favorite, something we often did when we both lived in NYC. A Google search and raving Yelp reviews, led us to O-B House, a restaurant in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.Read More
Last weekend I went on a short girls' trip to Savannah, GA. My friend has been telling me about the old town charm of Savannah for awhile so the curiosity got the best of me and I finally went. Our first order of business included a visit to the River Walk.
We went to brunch at Collin's Quarter, which was celebrating its one year anniversary. Collin's Quarter is one of the newer establishments in Savannah, offering chic decor, delicious beautifully presented food and an espresso bar.
I truly enjoyed the Old Town Charm of Savannah. I snapped this photo while taking in the beauty of the town on our way to Forsyth Park.
We enjoyed browsing through the Paris Market - a unique eclectic gift shop. My friend especially liked their soaps, lotions and other skin care items. I took this photo at the downstairs level where you can find a number of vintage trinkets.
Homemade Candy, yum! We couldn't go to Savannah without stopping by the Savannah Candy Kitchen for good old-fashioned favorites like taffys, candy apples and pralines. Before then, I'd never had pralines, they did
We tried honey tasting for the first time at Savannah Bee Company where we learned that honey gets its flavor from the plant the Bee feeds on, they had a large variety of flavors.
If you enjoy small towns with personality and charm, then Savannah is worth a visit!
As I noted in my previous post, I spent my 30th birthday in San Francisco's Bay area. My weekend was full and fun and captured on my instagram page. I spent my time dancing (and "DJing") at an African-Caribbean party, wine tasting in Napa Valley, sight seeing on a boat cruise and taking the view of the city at the Top of the Mark hotel.
