Hey Guys,

For Memorial weekend I decided to visit some family in Palm Beach. It was a getaway I was looking forward to because I adore Palm Beach and any reason to visit is reason enough for me. I wanted a relaxing weekend this time, so I only had a few spots on my list that I wanted visit.

First up was Flagler Museum! The original house was completed in 1902. It was a 75-room, 100,000-square-foot Gilded Age mansion, know as Whitehall. This turned out to be a wedding present for Henry Flagler’s wife, Mary Lily Kenan Flagler. After a brief changing of owners, the museum was opened to the public in 1960. It is said to be visited by nearly 100,000 people yearly.

Next up was our Happy Hour Cruise. I really wanted to do the Sunset Cruise but that particular one was all sold out for the weekend. The happy hour cruise, however, ended up being lots of fun. We cruised along Palm Beach Island while listening to tropical music, sipping on our mixed drinks and discussing our favorite architectural details of the mansions we passed along the way.

The following afternoon, we headed for lunch at RH Rooftop Restaurant; this was on the top of my list for the weekend. Let’s just say I was blown away! This restaurant is beyond beautiful; it is absolutely divine and the ambiance and décor are simply perfect. For that they get 5 stars, however, the menu is very limited and I was not impressed by it at all; but, did I care? Mmmmm…… no! I just wanted to eat something quick and take all the pics I could and, to be honest, that’s what I did and I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon.

On Monday it was Memorial Day and my family had a small bbq, which we stayed for before heading back to Orlando.


Until next time, thanks for reading.

Hey Guys,

There’s something I’ve been loving this summer more than my usual Little White Dress and that is......drum roll please....the Maxi Dress!

Even though I love all of the various styles of this dress, there is one that has my heart and that has to be the shirtdress maxi. They are easy to wear plus, I believe, they add that extra touch of sophistication. This is, by far, my favorite power summer outfit. Do you have a favorite power outfit to wear in the summer? If you do, please share in the comment section below.

I’ve shared several options of maxi shirt dresses below. Also, feel free to tell me your favorite in the comment section.

Until next time, thanks for reading.

Hey Guys,

A couple weekends ago my friends and I headed to Miami to celebrate a birthday within the group. This trip turned out to be quite the foodie experience; we ended up eating our way through the city. Here is a list of all our stops and what I thought of them.

We started our weekend getaway on a Friday night with dinner at Bakan, which was the cutest Tulum-esq restaurant that serves Mexican cusine. The restaurant had great vibes and good food. What else could we want?

mezcal, triple sec, mango puree, mint, brown sugar & lime juice
The following morning we got all dolled up and headed to brunch at Juvia. This rooftop bar and restaurant featured stunning views of the Miami skyline and the décor was just as beautiful. However, our brunch just did not deliver! This was very disappointing to say the least. We started on a high; the French toast was exquisitely delicious and hit all the right notes but it was down hill from there. The drinks were terrible and I had to send my main course (steak) back twice. Once for being cold and the other for being undercooked. At this point I was already over it.

yucca fries
Complementary Birthday Shots

We left and went to Miami Mojito Company to get some real drinks and they did not disappoint.

Checking out the artisan donut shop Salty Donut was next on the list. I was so surprised to see that there was a line wrapped around the outside of the shop. I guess this was a good sign that we were in for a real treat.

Right around the corner was our next stop: No. 3 Social which was described on their website as a culturally vibrant rooftop bar and lounge in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami. No. 3 Social is cool; it has a nice relaxing vibe, the drinks are great but I can definitely pass on the food. If you are in the area it is worth checking out.

muddled kiwi, absolut pear, simple syrup, lime, lychee puree

For dinner we headed to KYU hoping to find out why it’s so hard to get a reservation here. After dinner I can see why! The food here was the best I had eaten since the start of this little foodie getaway. The fried chicken is to die for and I swear they make the sauce it is served in with voodoo. It is addictively good! I didn’t, however, fancy the fried rice but its not because it wasn’t good. It was seasoned to perfection but the combination of seasonings were not appealing to my tastebuds. The service was impeccable and our waiter was truly amazing.

Sunday morning took us to Tap 42 for brunch. Tap 42 is one of your feel good restaurants that you can revisit time and time again and know that the food and the service will be the same. We had such a good time I didn’t even remember to take pictures of my food. I did, however, have their chicken and waffles, which is comfort food at its best.

Hey Guys,

It’s that time of year when Sephora is having their spring VIB event and when I get a chance to stock up on all my favorites. The sale ends on Monday the 6th, so let me quickly share what I will be picking up.

This has become one of my favorites in the last year. I originally bought this product for its firming assertions, but I don’t use it on a consistent enough basis to vouch for that claim. I do, however, love the smell and have found it have some much-needed moisturizing properties.

A summer must have! Not to mention, it has the same wonderful smell as the bum bum cream. This oil gives your body the most amazing glow. I just love this stuff.

Of all the lip scrubs I have tried, this is truly my fave. I love it so much, I actually wear it as my regular ‘go-to’ lip-gloss.

I am addicted to using this cleansing brush because, when I do, I feel like I just got an awesome mini facial. I also know my face has been thoroughly cleansed in the process.

This ultra-hydrating facial mask helps to moisturize dry, dull skin. This is one of my favorite masks to apply at night.

This was the easiest way for me to try Drunk Elephant without investing in full size products. I must say, I loved using the ‘T.L.C. FramboosTM Glycolic Night Serum’ as it refines and resurfaces skin and has helped me reduce the appearance of my hyperpigmentation. I will be purchasing the full size product. 

I love to use this product if my lips are feeling extra dry; apply overnight and you will love how hydrated and soft your lips are in the morning.

This product can be described as a great, everyday, moisturizer that doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky or greasy. 

I love this product as a hand cream! It provides instant relief and long-term hydration for dry and distressed skin. 

Rouge 20% off, VIB 15% OFF, and Insider 10% OFF!

Until next time, thanks for reading.

Hey Guys,

In my last post I told you that I would be giving you all the details on what I did while in Bimini and, today, I am here to deliver.

What to do:

Visit the Gallant Lady Shipwreck – On our first day in Bimini, we set out to familiarize ourselves with the island. We rented our golf cart and headed out to explore North Bimini, which is only 700-feet wide and seven-miles long. Seeing the Gallant Lady shipwreck was on the top of our list. It is said that the Gallant Lady was a small freighter that sailed out of Belize City and was smashed up on shore during Hurricane Mitch in 1997.

Snorkel at SS Sapona Shipwreck - For our day-two adventure, we travelled by catamaran approximately three miles south of North Bimini and snorkeled the skeletal remains of Bimini’s most famous shipwreck. The SS Sapona was a WWI-era concrete and steel ship, that wrecked in 1926 and was used until 1945 as military target practice by the U.S. Army Air Force and Navy. 

Dive with the sharks at Bimini Bull Run – In the afternoon, we decided to dive with BULL SHARKS. This is probably the most adventurous thing I will ever do in my life! Bimini Bull Run, which is located at Big Game Club Marina, features a dock-side dive cage that I ‘think’ is safe (based on my limited experience). The bull sharks are pretty large and swim all around the cage. This was definitely one of the coolest experiences I have had in my life and you can definitely do it, even without being able to swim. 

Where to eat:

Stuart Conch Salad Stand – No trip to the Bahamas is complete without trying conch salad and, since Bimini is considered part of the Bahamas, this particular island was no exception. Stuart’s was one of two conch stands that came highly recommended. We ultimately chose Stuart’s in order to try their famous rum punch and we definitely weren’t disappointed. 

Edith’s Pizza and Restaurant – This pizza restaurant is another eatery that came highly recommended. Edith’s pizza is baked on sweet Bimini bread dough. 

CJ’s Deli – This is a local breakfast spot that was recommended to us when we decided we had no intentions of spending $30 USD pp on breakfast at our resort. After a few inquiries as to where we could get an affordable Bimini breakfast, CJ’s deli turned out to be the winning suggestion. This breakfast spot is located right by the beach, which is so beautiful, peaceful and serene. The breakfast is also a good bang for your buck.

Luna Beach Club – This was my favorite restaurant of the trip! The food was amazing and the backdrop of the sun setting was to die for. I had Curry Bahamian Grouper served with Coconut Rice and Fried Plantains and I enjoyed every bit of it.
