Bedroom Confessions

When it comes to my bed, I’m extremely OCD. I won’t leave the house without the bed made, EVER. Even if it means running late. I’ve been this way as long as I can remember, and if someone else tries to make it, it’s not the same. When I was younger I was never the girl to let my friends hang out on my bed, it was a place for sleeping and I didn’t want it messed up until I was ready to get in it. Crazy I know, hence the post title. But there is something to be said about a well made bed. It sets the tone for your bedroom and your day and creates a sanctuary to call your own. What’s funny is whenever I see a really well made bed, I get a little envious and the itch to change my own. What’s even more funny is I happen to work for an amazing linen company, so everyday I see beautifully well made beds, that are constantly providing inspiration.

St. Thomas and St. John

2015-02-22_21-08-21In December, {I know this post is long overdue} my boyfriend and I traveled to St. Thomas for a long weekend away. I had been before as a child, but never as an adult, and we already can’t wait to plan our next trip! From the food, to the people and activities, we had such a blast! I wanted to share my top picks with you! And a few photos of course!

To Stay: The Marriott Frenchman’s Reef 

-This hotel is the perfect location {not too far from the airport and very close to town} and has all the amenities one could possibly need! The staff was excellent and the property had the most amazing views from wherever you were!

To Eat: Havana Blue 

-Every meal we had was truly delicious, however our favorite had to be at Havana Blue. Just a quick ride from the hotel, the chef has a created a unique menu with local flare. The surf & turf was out of this world! And we had an ocean front view.

To Drink: Iggies 

-We ventured to Iggies one night after dinner and had the best time. The bar is right on the beach {think toes in the sand} with a live band and fun bar games, you can’t go wrong!

To Beach: Magen’s Beach {St. Thomas} and Honeymoon Beach {St. John} 

-Magen’s Beach is on the opposite side of the island from where we stayed and we ventured out one afternoon and couldn’t be happier that we did. A very secluded and beautiful spot, and oh so relaxing! {Shown in the last photo below}

-We took the ferry over to St. John for a full day of adventuring, however we spent majority of our time at Honeymoon Beach. We hiked from the downtown area to this beautiful oasis {our hotel bartender recommended it to us}. This is a MUST see. The water is just perfect and the beach was so quite! There was a little drink stand that served ice-cold coronas that kept us there most of the day! {Shown above and in photo two below}

Pack on the Back

Mardi Gras festivities are well on their way and this is the perfect companion; besides a cocktail of course! Hershel Supply Co. back packs are the perfect practical, yet stylish carryall. Can’t wait to get a little use out of mine over the weekend! And after Mardi Gras, it’s the perfect carry on! The Herschel Supply Co.

 

 

Winter Whites

Life has been a little stressful lately to say the least, and I’ve been looking forward to getting back to my blogging routine.

I watch the Today Show just about every morning and the recurring weather theme for the Northeast is snow and more snow, record-breaking in some places! The winter, white, wonderland looks so beautiful from a far and has me inspired. I scooped up some white roses recently and even have been reaching for my white jeans.  I know our friends in the Northeast are ready for the snow to end, but from where it’s sunny and 70 degrees, it sure is pretty!

Metallic and Flat

Two things I’m gravitating towards in the shoe department…. metallic and flat! I came across several styles on a recent run to Forever21 and left with a pair {or two}! These are perfect for the in-between season days ahead! And for the price, you can’t help but scoop up two pairs!

Charleston in December

I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Charleston {my first time too} with my job. I attended the Garden & Gun Jubilee, which was one of the most amazing events I have ever attended. The weekend was literally the pages of the magazine coming to life. Everything so perfectly styled and curated, not to mention the best of the south, in one place! I also had a little time to adventure in the city, something about being in a new city alone feels so refreshing and freeing.

Reaching in 2014

Last year I wrote about wanting to reach a little further in 2014 and I think I did just that. I started with a new company over the summer that allows me to combine my passions and professional experience on a daily basis and I could not be happier on the career front. I was also able to pack my bags a little more this year and reach places I’ve never been {and a few old favorites too!} The main highlight of the year, is my new title of Auntie, the debut of my niece is by far the best moment of 2014! Cheers to the year that was and the new one on the way!

Fall Travel

If you have been following along on instagram, you know I have been traveling quite a bit these last two months. I just got back in town from a fun vacation {more on that later}, and still wanted to share these pictures from a fall trip to Savannah a few weeks back. My bf and I took the trip for the most magical wedding and Savannah was the perfect backdrop!
