Travel Guide: Aspen, Colorado

Aspen has always been on my radar but growing up in Texas we always went to Colorado in the winter to ski. My first ski experience was at 8 years old in Breckenridge, then Purgatory, Telluride, Vail and Beaver Creek but Aspen was never on our hit list. We were a ski in the winter, beach in the summer kind of family and I loved that. I always questioned why people were so enamored with ...

Travel Guide: A Non Bachelorette Party Take on Nashville

Being a fairly well-traveled girl I have a keen desire to see as much of the world as I possibly can - finding myself in hidden villages in France,  lost on a tuktuk in Thailand, exploring a remote island in the most obscure of ocean enclosed places and seeking solace in beautiful countryside’s in Hungary, Germany and England  - yet I’ve neglected my own country these past few years. As a child I grew up ...

Weekend Escape: Newport, RI

My never-ending love affair with the city and be it any and all things French has never wavered. I’ve been back several times since college but this recent trip was a tad different. I didn’t stay in a beautiful tiny apartment or in an off-the-beaten path ...

Two nights in: London’s Jumeirah Grosvenor Suites

One of the most beautiful places in London is Hyde Park. Being a girl from New York I thoroughly enjoy spending time in any park that’s situated nicely right in the middle of a big, bustling city, it’s a tranquil escape. A way to wind down and relax amidst the hustle.  A good morning run through the park is one of the most wonderful ways to start a day in London. When I headed back ...

Two Nights At: Nizuc Resort, Serenity in Cancun

If you’ve noticed I’ve spent a significant amount of time in Mexico this year - particularly so right outside of Cancun in Playa Mujeres to help my little sister plan her wedding. I’m happy to report that the wedding was a celebration of epic proportion and will be shared on the blog in the upcoming month or so with a survival guide for how to maintain your sanity while planning your little sister’s wedding (kidding, ...
