Seasonal activities never get old to me. Here in central Maryland we have a local farm, Weber’s Peachberry Farm, great for gathering the bounty of almost every season. This late July brought several varieties of peaches and I was all too happy to spend an early Saturday morning picking as many as my little heart […]
This spring, a certain dress from J. Crew has sent quite a few of us into a frenzy. Its simplicity and utter femininity have made it the perfect frock for a day of sightseeing or relaxing in a cafe. So many gravitated towards the popular seersucker but after trying on both, I decided the fire […]
It’s no secret that I’m a big lover of macarons, as are many people these days. Adorable and colorful confections with the perfect balance of cookie and cream, they pair perfectly with a hot caffeinated beverage or a refreshing glass of champagne. I like to think I’m always on the hunt for the perfect macaron […]
So we made it from Bordeaux all the way to Monaco, and our trip was coming to an end. But before we could leave, we had to spend a day in Paris – the place of dreams, extravagance, and fashion. We couldn’t experience it all, but what we did see will forever hold the warmest of places in my heart.
A couple of summers ago, we spent a week driving through the south of France. I literally shook on the flight from New York to Paris because it had been ten years since I last stepped foot in France and I still couldn’t believe I was going back. We landed in Paris and immediately took the SNCF to Saint-Michel in Bordeaux. From there, we rented a car and began our scenic journey through small villages and towns eventually ending up in Monaco before returning to Paris. Follow our journey from Bordeaux to Monaco below!
After our week in snowy Canada, it was decided that we would fly down to West Palm Beach. Although much of the east coast received an interesting amount of cold and snow this past holiday season, and Florida was not excluded from this weather, we knew whatever the Sunshine Sate had to offer, we would […]
My boyfriend lives in Canada. I know, bummer right? Although his move back home hasn’t been easy, mini trips to see him and vacations there have certainly helped. Originally from Quebec, he wanted to show me his home province during its most magical time, the winter holiday season. With only a week to get everything in and dodge the brutal cold we spent as much time, as we could tolerate, walking through the streets of Montreal and sitting in its warm bars and cafes.
Unfortunately, it was so cold that most of my days involved layering and bundling up to the point that I couldn’t get dolled up for our outings. My hair was constantly flattened by hats and my face was mostly covered with a mega scarf — he called it, “the ski look”. But despite that, I had the time of my life. Montreal and Quebec City have amazing architecture and culinary experiences and I am so excited to return…in the summer. 😉
So, happy New Year from us. We hope that 2018 brings so many blessings and lots of prosperity!
