We took a little trip to New York this weekend to spend time with family. My jam-packed schedule included a little Friday night lights for my brother’s football game, a pop-in at the pumpkin patch, and a few fun stops in the city — I finally got to try Shake Shack (yum) and explore C.Wonder (wow). It looks like we’re going to be stuck inside for the next few days with this crazy weather, so I’m glad we got in our whirlwind of fun before the storm hits!

I had a quintessential fall day this weekend full of cider donuts and apples and gorgeous New England weather. It felt nice to need to bundle up a bit and pull out the jackets and scarves! How did you spend this fabulous fall weekend?

I took a mini-break after the Fourth of July and made my way down to the Cape for the weekend. It was perfect Summer weather with warm days and cool nights, and plenty of beach time. I cautiously dipped my toes in the water (have you heard about the sharks?) and enjoyed spending some time with old friends over cocktails and BBQs. What sort of Summer fun did you have this weekend?

I’m a little slow in recovering from my Savannah trip over the holiday weekend because I’m worn out from all of the fun packed into 3 short days! I made the most out of the girls weekend and soaked up the sights (and soaked up much of the local food as well). The highlights of the trip for me were seeing all of the character that the buildings in Savannah have, it’s like stepping back in time. I also got to take a peek in SCAD’s fashion building with my fabulous hostess. And I did some extensive window shopping; I fell in love with the shabby chic pieces in The Paris Market. It was a vacation well worth my slow recovery time, I can’t wait to go back!

 

 

I took a day trip with the family over the weekend to Block Island — one of my favorite places in the world. It had been almost 6 years since I had last visited so I had a fun time rediscovering the picturesque Victorian main street and taking in the harbor views. I was happy to see that while some things had changed since my last visit, the charm of the island remained the same.

We still have a few days until New Years Resolutions kick in, right? I had to share one last tidbit from my trip to Quebec last week… delicious carbohydrate eye candy.

I’m just finally downloading pictures from my girls weekend in Miami a few weeks ago and thought I’d share a few of my faves:

 

I’m counting down the days to my Miami girls weekend this fall — and in the meantime, I’m keeping myself occupied with daydreams about places to visit when I get there.

My friend just tipped me off on The Raleigh in Miami and I am definitely adding a drink at their bar on my vacation to-do list — as well as taking in their gorgeous decor:

How cute is their logo?

Any other tips for visiting Miami? I’m all ears!

I had an awesome weekend vacationing in Maine, it was perfect weather and gorgeous scenery. Check out some of the views I captured:

And sure, taking in the views and seeing a gorgeous sunrise were lovely, but the best part of the whole weekend? Getting a monogrammed tote at the LLBean flagship store in Freeport! A preppy dream come true:

I got back from a great weekend getaway in Quebec City (FRIGID, but great). The hotel we stayed at, Le Port-Royal, was modern and lofty. I had to snap a pic of the gorgeous wallpaper and furniture in the lobby.

The old city was like a magical winter wonderland, every store front was decorated for Christmas! They really go all out with the Christmas lights in Quebec. How cute are the santa clothes hanging from clothes lines?

The highlight of the weekend? Not my first attempt at skiing (I did more gymnastics-style tumbling than actual skiing), but the food! We had an amazing dinner at a restaurant called L’Echaude. And the icing on the cake? I tried my first macaroon; now I know what everyone has been talking about! Anyone ever try to make them? The recipes look intimidating!
