West Palm Beach, FL Travel Guide + Video

I traveled to the beautiful and scenic West Palm Beach three times during a month timeframe. To say I fell in love, that I’m obsessed, and half of my heart is still there, is just the least of how I feel about West Palm Beach. Since visiting multiple times, I came up with a little travel guide to help you plan your next visit!

Things to do:

The Improv: We found tickets last minute and went to the Improv for a comedy show and dinner. We had a blast! Highly recommend a visit, even if you don’t know who the comedian is. Enjoy drinks, dinner, and laughter. Side note: there is a two drink minimum.

Visit The Colony: The Colony grounds are open to view. Head over to their pool bar, or stop at one of their restaurants!

Visit The Breakers: The Breakers has a beautiful and scenic grounds to explore. The public is welcome in, but valet is $30. However, you can shop and spend $30, the valet is free. We spent a couple hours exploring and shopping!

Shopped on Worth Avenue: A great stroll through luxury shops like Chanel, Valentino, and Tiffany & Co. It’s a beautiful area where you can dream big!

Beach day on Jupiter Island: Jupiter Island is full of beaches that you can visit! We spent the majority of the day exploring the island and beach hopping!

Shopped in CityPlace: Highly recommend going in the afternoon for shopping, dinning, and entertainment. The area is so pretty, they had great options for restaurants, and entertainment. This is where the Improv is at.

Lion Country Safari: My heart. Oh my goodness. I didn’t think it was real until we got there. This is a “cage-less” zoo where you can ride around (in your car) in a Safari like setting with wild animals roaming around you.

Where to eat that we loved:

Hogsnappers: Hands down, the best sushi. I’ve eaten here like 3-4 times.

Polo at The Colony: We stopped for lunch while we were visiting The Colony grounds. They had light bites like sandwiches and salads. A perfect place to slow down and enjoy your time in a super cute setting.

Lighthouse Diner: So, so good. Breakfast all day, yes please! It’s a great local place to visit.

Okeechobee Steakhouse: Hands down, the best steak I’ve ever had in my life.

St. Thomas, Virgin Islands Travel Guide

I get so many questions about our honeymoon destination, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. So, I figured, as we have just celebrated 4 years of marriage, I would talk a little bit about our trip. We are much more adventurous now, not too mention, we are a lot better with our camera, than we were 4 years ago, so this “travel guide” is going to be shorter. We stayed on the island of St. Thomas for three nights, and four days. Most of our time was spent at the resort, which held lots of activities.

Where we stayed:

Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort: We spent all of our time here for the most part. We had a wonderful stay. We snorkeled, went kayaking, and visited their private beach, and multiple pools. Not too mention, all of the food on site was delish!

What we did:

There was one day where we ventured out in the island. After renting a car, and quickly learning how to drive on the opposite side of the road we went through the hills of the islands. I got very car sick, but it was worth it for some of the views.

Magens BayWe made a day out of visiting the world’s most beautiful beach. Magens Bay was beautiful, and a total must stop to visit.

 

 

Savannah, GA Travel Guide

Savannah, GA is historic, charming and offers a lot of southern flare. Our visit to Savannah was nothing short of an amazing time. Venturing through the city, learning about the history, and taking in the beautiful architecture and landscaping was just what we did during our trip.

I took a trip to Savannah, GA with a group of our girlfriends, for a fun weekend getaway to celebrate our friend and bride to be! While walking through the streets, we stumbled across other groups having fun with the same celebration! It’s a great city to feel safe, have fun, shop, eat and enjoy beautiful, historical landmarks! Today I’m sharing my travel guide to the lovely city:

What we did during our visit 

Ghost Tour with Savannah Walks: Highly recommend doing a ghost tour. We found this one on Groupon and it was totally worth it! It was historic, funny, and only a little scary. This is a walking tour, so be prepared to walk about a mile or so.

Shopping on Broughton Street: A fun area of town to do some shopping and eating. Highly recommend stopping into Nourish to grab some shower steamers, bath fizzies, and other pampering items! I picked up some shower steamers for our trip, and some to take home.

Shopping on River Street: Between the candy shoppes, souvenir stops, and the beautiful river front, River Street is a great area to visit while you are in Savannah, GA. I highly recommend the walk or Uber due to limited parking in that particular area.

Historic Trolley Tour with Old Savannah Tours: Our group really enjoyed learning about the history behind Savannah, GA. Old Savannah Tours had a great rate and they even had actors of historic figures pop on the trolley to tell us about their history in Savannah! I would highly recommend the “off and on” option so you can get off at any of the historic sites and visit!

A walk through Forsyth Park: This park is so beautiful. We strolled through, but we saw many families playing their favorite sports, hammocks in the trees, and pups playing catch!

McDonoughs Karaoke Lounge: Our favorite stop of the trip was to McDonoughs for some karaoke! We all got up on stage and sang Cardi B, and had the whole place singing and dancing! Pick your favorite song and request it for you to sing solo, or with a group!

Places we ate during our visit:

Huey’s On The River: New Orleans styled food and flavors.

Little Duck Diner: Southern classic including delicious grilled cheese, salads, mac and cheese, milkshakes, soups and more!

Goose Feathers Cafe: A sweet little spot to stop for sandwiches, coffee, or a sweet treat!

Garibaldi: Offered a nice variety of flavors-from seafood, Italian and cajun.

Mrs. Wilkes’ Dinning Room: This is a MUST. Get there early, like an hour early. You’re going to have to stand in line, but the food is so worth it! Get your southern comfort at this historical restaurant!

Where we stayed: 

The Jones Carriage House: This is a sweet little airbnb with the cutest interior!

Outfit Details: Love, Fire dress

I may be in Savannah now, but I’m bringing it back to just a couple of days ago when I was in West Palm! I was sent there for work purposes, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have an enjoyable time. West Palm is so beautiful! I’m excited to venture back soon. I wore this floral wrap dress while visiting, but you may also recognize it from my Instagram stories previously as a guest to my friend’s bridal shower! It’s such a lovely and perfect dress to wear as a quest for a spring wedding or wedding event! I’m including photos from the bridal shower so you can see various ways of styling this beautiful dress! It comes in a beautiful shade of blue, and it’s under $50!

How I wore the dress as a bridal shower guest:

A small guide to Jupiter Florida and how styled the dress while visiting:

Weekend Recap 11.27.17

Weekend Recap:

What a weekend it was indeed. Joy is being restored, and my heart is starting to mend in this season of giving. I always find myself feeling joy and peace when I give to others. I know Thanksgiving wasn’t technically on the “weekend”, but I’m going to include it and I’ll make it a quick recap! It felt so good to concentrate on giving to my family this past weekend-baking my first pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving, Black Friday shopping for gifts, celebrating my Grandma’s 90th birthday, then re-celebrating my mom’s birthday with her gift of an over night stay in Mt. Dora, and ringing in the Christmas season. After the festivities of Thanksgiving, and Black Friday shopping, some of our family took off on a small adventure to a little town called Mt. Dora. Each year this town lights up the city with their annual event to bring over 2 million lights on around the city. We had such a blast singing Christmas songs, exploring the town, and counting down to the lighting. Then, Santa led us down the road to a 40 foot Christmas tree on display. If you are interested in this event I’ll link it here.

To be honest, it was so nice to forget about the worries, anxiety, stresses and concentrate on other things, fun things! Though the Christmas season has always held a bit of heartache, I’m going to concentrate on finding joy in giving and enjoy this wonderful time of year! If you’re dealing with worries, and stresses, find ways to give to others this season, there are a lot of free options too, like volunteering at a local ministry or shelter! I’ve always found myself having a blast when I find a local place that need some volunteers.

Here are some things I’m loving:

Cyber Monday is here, and if you’re looking to save now is the time! Here’s a list of some great places having deals!

Target– 30% off clothing items for the family + and extra 15% off + free shipping
