Montreal Round-Up

My husband and I went to Montreal over Thanksgiving and oh my was it the cutest place ever! Just an hour and half away from New York City (flight) and you feel like you have been transported to a cute little town in Europe. Everyone there speaks French and they have the cutest cobblestone streets filled with amazing restaurants, speakeasies, and cafes. My favorite cafe was hands down Tommys, first off it’s right next to the STUNNING Notre-Dame Basilica plus the coziest interior filled with amazing plants, booths, and flowers.

While we were there it was freezing so layering was definitely a must! I have been obsessed with layering camis over t-shirts and turtlenecks lately. It gives your summer cami a fresh new look while keeping you warm during the colder months! What’s you favorite “keeping warm while fashionable” tip? Would love to hear!

Kennebunkport


Every year my husband and I go back to Kennebunkport Maine to celebrate our wedding anniversary. If you don’t know about Kennebunkport, you should! This little slice of heaven is a quaint New England town surrounded by water and is the quintessential Maine. Filled with cute shops, amazing food, and rocky beaches you can’t find a better getaway.

Italy Diary




Where do I start… this was a trip of a lifetime. My mother has always wanted to visit Italy her entire life so for her 60th and my 30th birthday I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate not only with my mother but sister and husband too.

We started in Tuscany, visited stunning vineyards (can you say Under the Tuscan Sun!?) sampling delicious wines and tasty foods with the more gorgeous views. I could have stayed there forever. We enjoyed larger and smaller vineyards and got a chance to talk to the families that owned the wineries. For my 30th birthday my husband surprised me with an air balloon ride at dawn over Tuscany.. I have no words for this, it was beyond beautiful and something I will remember for the rest of my life.

After a quick stop in Florence we headed to Rome. I had a chance to study in Rome while I was in college so it felt like going home to me. The hustle and bustle of city life mixed with such history give Rome a place like no other. I love walking everywhere, finding little restaurants and stores to stop in while visiting the “go-to” places, my favorite is Piazza Navona!

Our last stop was the Amalfi Coast, you can’t even believe you are still in Italy, you feel like you are transported on a island. The architecture of the building set into the mountainside is unreal. We staying at the Art Hotel in Positano (view were amazing!) and was the perfect spot to end our trip. Beachside and so relaxing! Our last night there we headed to Le Sirenuse (if you have the chance this is a must) the hotel is beyond stunning. Every room is the prettiest space I have ever seen (talk about #goals) with view that can’t be compared.

The trip was such a dream and I loved reliving it! Please let me know if you have any questions or if you are planning a trip. I would love to send over more recommendations! And on that note, where should I head next?

My Tulum Diary




Recently I had the chance to visit Tulum Mexico, it has been on my bucket list for awhile now and it did not disappoint! The small town is so enhancing, untouched by big hotels or resorts, Tulum has a real authentic laid back vibe. We stayed at the Azuilk Hotel which is a boutique one-of-a-kind “off-the grid” Eco-resort (no electricity) and the most amazing place I have ever stayed. The whole hotel is one big tree house with pathways above the trees and rooms with stunning ocean views. With maybe the cutest restaurants and beautiful beaches Tulum might be the most magical place and I can’t wait to plan my next trip back.
