Gift Guide: Travel Lover

This gift guide was SO fun and easy to put together because I LOVE to travel.  And I definitely have some things that I can’t leave home without.  Click on any of the images to shop!   First up: luggage.  Having the right luggage makes a HUGE difference when traveling.  I rarely check a bag, so I have gotten really good at fitting a ton in a carry on.  I like a hard-sided carry on that has equal packing space on either side.  Hard-sided suitcases are actually lighter weight and much easier to organize.  I also love traveling with a backpack…it’s really nice to throw something on my back rather than lugging a duffel around.   If I am traveling […]

Exuma, Bahamas

I’m so excited to share our experience on the magical little island of Great Exuma!  We picked Exuma for two reasons: 1. There is a direct 2.5 hour flight from Charlotte and 2. I wanted to swim with the pigs!  If you’re looking for a non-touristy destination, Exuma is for you.  It is the epitome of authentic and unspoiled. Exuma is a district of the Bahamas, which consists of over 365 islands, also called cays.  The largest of the cays is Great Exuma, which is 37 miles long and joined to another island, Little Exuma, by a small bridge.

OOTDs

Happy Friday!  I got back from Napa Sunday night and MAN, this week has been a STRUGGLE.  I wasn’t feeling well my first few days back.  I’m sure it was partly all the wine I consumed/lack of sleep/jet lag, but I definitely had a cold/congestion thing going on as well (although Napa was totally worth it).  On top of that, Marley started peeing in the house a week ago, so I took her to the vet yesterday and it turns out her kidneys aren’t functioning properly.  The only solution was to leave her there for 2-4 days on a IV to see if they can normalize her kidney levels.  What a nightmare.  Leaving my 15 year old dog like that […]

A Weekend in Naples

Happy Monday!  Worst Monday of the year, am I right??  The Monday after the Superbowl is always so hard.  And let me tell you…I went from 30 days of vegan to EATING EVERYTHING for the past few days, so needless to say I feel pretty terrible.  Oh, and one night at dinner my girlfriend and I EACH had a bottle of rosé, so that happened.  It’s been fun, but it’s ending tomorrow!  I’m going back off cheese (for the most part), cutting back on wine again, and if you read my last vegan post (HERE), I’m cutting back on carbs and concentrating on whole foods.  I’ve GREATLY enjoyed my break, but I am looking forward to eating clean again! I […]
