A Weekend Getaway in Historic Savannah, Georgia

Like many people who love to travel, I have a bucket list of places I still need to visit.  One of my favorite books of all time is Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil which was based on “real life” characters in Savannah, Georgia.  The movie with Kevin Spacey and John Cusack was equally as good.  For the last 20 years since I first read the book, I have wanted to travel to this part of the South routed in deep, gothic history and ghostly intrigue.  I booked a trip with my friend Stacey and we went about researching...

The Perfect Getaway in the Little Town of Yountville, CA

It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am a huge fan of wine country.  When I was there a few years ago I stayed in the little town of Yountville and loved it so much, I recommended we stay there again on my recent girls weekend with Lauren and Marcella. I will have lots to share with you in the coming weeks on wineries I loved and restaurants I highly recommend.  However, for now l would like to share a one night packed stay in Yountville. We stayed at the stunning, relaxing Hotel Yountville, which is walking distance to...

Spa Review: Spa InterContinental Boston

You have probably noticed a lack of new blog posts these past few months and for that I apologize.  This is absolutely not because I have gotten lazy and don’t want to write anymore, especially as I spent so much time creating a whole new website.  It is because my day job, the one that pays all the bills has completely consumed my life for the last year but more so in the last 3-4 months, taking over any resemblance of a social life I may have had. Allow me to explain just a little.  Our office decided to...

Glorious Newport

I have been remiss in my blog posts these past few weeks.  I took 10 days much needed vacation/ staycation with one of my dearest and oldest friends, Nicola from back home in England who was visiting me.  She arrived with her 11 year-old daughter, Ella and I had 10 days of adventure planned for us from Blue Man Group to Tea at the Four Seasons to The Freedom Trail, to Canobie Lake Park to lots and lots and lots of eating (for which I will surely pay for.)  During their stay I also booked two nights for us at the gorgeous Hotel Viking in Newport.  I do love Newport… to me it is true New England at its most glorious, especially in nice weather.  We did have a mix of gorgeous and slightly miserable weather, but that did not stop our good times. When you do a trip with an 11 year-old things are a little different, especially when planning activities.  While late restaurant dinners, wine and laziness are all relaxing fun for me; that will not fly with an 11 year-old.  Upon our arrival and to beautiful weather, we dropped the car off and walked down to Bowen’s Wharf to enjoy lunch at The Landing restaurant.  The Landing is located right in the heart of historic Newport and home to some absolutely gorgeous harbor views.  We started our lunch with some deliciously crisp and fresh calamari.  Our vacation...
