A Weekend in Washington, DC

Lance and I just spent a weekend in D.C. and everywhere we went was amazing, so I wanted to share it with you! We got in on Saturday afternoon and had lunch at Barcelona Wine Bar.  I LOVE Spanish food, so this spot was perfect.  Our goal was to sit outside, and they have a great patio…but it was also 80 degrees and sunny with low humidity, so that was everyone else’s goal, too!  We ended up sitting inside which was still nice because they have huge floor to ceiling windows.  The food and wine were both amazing, so I highly recommend this spot, especially if you like traditional Spanish tapas.  It’s a great place for a meal, but would […]

O’o Farm Maui Review

One of the most special things we did on Maui was a farm tour and luncheon at O’o Farm in upcountry Maui.  It was such a cool and unique experience and like nothing I have ever done before.  Just visiting upcountry Maui (with the misty cloud cover and cooler temps) is an experience in itself, and so different than most Hawaiian island experiences.

Andaz Maui Review + Misa Floral Dress

I’m home from 17 days in Hawaii!!  Really 16 days because you lose a day coming home.  Coming back to the east coast from Hawaii is crazy!  Our flight left Maui at 5:30 PM and by the time we landed in Charlotte at 10:45 AM, it was 4:45 AM in Hawaii.  So unless you can sleep on a plane (which neither of us can), you lose a night of sleep.  We got home at noon and went right to bed.  I have been feeling pretty good since, so here’s hoping the jet lag won’t be too bad. I wanted to tell you about our hotel in Maui because it was seriously incredible.  We stayed at the Andaz Maui at Wailea […]

Free People Favs

I’m planning for another trip, so of course I want a whole new wardrobe!  Who else is with me on this?!  I said to Lance, ‘I need to go get everything I need for Hawaii.’  And he was like…’what are you talking about, you don’t need anything.’  Sigh.  Dudes.  They will never get it.  But, yes, I’m taking another vacation already.  Retail is slow in the summer so I take FULL advantage!  And I have a girlfriend living in Hawaii for the summer so HELLO?!?  Do you think I’m not going out there to stay for free?!  I’m going to Oahu for a week then Lance is meeting me and we head to Maui for week.  Here’s where we are […]
