  • Five Things I Loved About Grenada

    My husband and I visited Grenada last month for our honeymoon and had an awesome time. I can’t count the amount of times people have asked my why we chose Grenada. Honestly, we chose at random. We wanted to go somewhere that wasn’t too far (four hour flight from Miami), that was warm and a bit of the beaten path. A lot of the Caribbean is tourist focused and that…

  • My Paradise – Bermuda

    Every time I step outside of my door, I am greeted with the sight of turquoise water with an expansive view. On the left, I see beautiful blue sky, the North Atlantic Ocean and white roof homes for miles. If I turn to the right, there’s more ocean for miles. I don’t think there’s anything better.

I plan my life around what I will eat and when I will eat it. And vacations – I don’t plan excursions, I spend hours researching the best restaurants to stuff my face the whole time I am on…

  • The Ultimate Guide to Barcelona

    Often times, when we put something on a pedestal, the reality doesn’t measure up because expectations are too high. Barcelona has been on a pedestal for me for about ten years. I’ve wanted to visit the Catalan city for as long as I can remember and finally, I had the chance. I recently spent eight lovely days in Barcelona with my partner and absolutely fell in love with this amazing…
