The BK Staycation: The Williamsburg Hotel

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

The longer I live in NYC the more I appreciate escaping it. To those of  you who don’t reside in a New York (or a over populated city) the following my seem like a bit of a headscratcher but to those of us living in NYC it’ll make sense …I need to leave in order to recharge, rest and more importantly reinstate my love for this crazy busy city that seemingly never sleeps. I used ...

Weekend Escape: Newport, RI

Monday, August 28, 2017

A few summers ago I found myself up in Newport, RI seeking an escape from the city. It was far more relaxed and laid back than expected, a welcome change without a doubt. I haven’t been back since so when I was scratching at the walls to get out of hot, steamy NYC a trip up to cooler Newport was just what I needed. A calm, relaxing escape. The stay was only three days but ...

The End of Summer Escape: Hamptons

Friday, August 18, 2017

For New Yorker’s heading to the Hamptons on the weekends is the equivalent to going to the lake for my Southern friends. It’s the easy escape out of the city, the closest body of water and the beach (but definitely not the nicest) and will inevitably end with a beautiful sunset closing out a wonderful weekend with friends.

I didn’t stay in a beautiful tiny apartment or in an off-the-beaten path ...

First up, my ten favorite outdoor watering holes … I’ve got my priorities straight don’t you think?   I’ve come to realize that I enjoy spending as much time outside when I’m here as I possibly can. I’ll ...

A few nights in The Cotswolds at Thyme

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Last summer my friend Melanie and I hopped on a train to escape the dreary weather in London and headed for the Cotswold’s. It was my first time to visit (pop back over here to read all about that trip!) but I fell in love with the English countryside.  To say I was eager to get back out is nothing short of an understatement.  During this recent visit I took my mom along to experience ...
