afternoon tea2

I finally got around to shifting through the 100′s of photos I took while in Paris and London last Fall – yes, almost a year ago.  In my defense, I took over a thousand photos over the course of the week life has been moving full speed ahead ever since.  It was nice over the last couple of weeks though, to be able to look back and relive the memories – and I can’t wait to share a few of… Read more »

Hot Air Balloon, Napa Valley, Sage+Sparkle

A few months back, Memorial Day Weekend, we headed out west for my sisters college graduation.  We had a wonderful weekend spending time with family and seeing a few friends. First let me start by saying, I love hot air balloons – Disney’s Up is one of my favorite movies and this Up themed photo shoot pulls on my heartstrings every time. Being on the west coast for more than 2 days and not working, I took the opportunity to… Read more »

Explore the Bahamas

With the holiday weekend upon us, (starting mine early) I’m headed  to California, to spend time with the family and see my little sister graduate from collage and my little bother preach this Sunday! Before before I jet off for another long weekend adventure, I wanted to share with you some photos from my trip last weekend, to the Bahamas.  It was a quick trip, but so much fun! I went gone for a 3 day weekend, to celebrate a… Read more »

What a week this has been for me! I had the most amazing experience the last two days, that I can’t wait to share with you.  But for now, join me in a little wanderlust and explore the Eiffel Tower through my eyes.  Just watching it takes me back to this magically moment and I couldn’t help but share with you. This weekend my love (he makes a few cameos in the video above) and I will be attending the… Read more »

Paris, France - Love Lock Bridge

Paris, November 2013:  We wrote our initials on a padlock, along side millions before us, locked it to the Pont de l’Archevêché, and throw the key into the Seine River as a symbol of our everlasting love.  One of the most romantic moments in my life to date.  I love this man with all my heart and could not be more thankful for all of the special moments we share together.   I woke up this morning, to pancakes, bacon (he knows the… Read more »

seven days in a carry on

I’m so excited to share with you my packing list packing list for my trip to Paris + London, back in November.  I am someone who ONLY packs carry on (my record is 14 days), so I would consider myself someone who is pretty good at it.  The secret is having a good size “personal item” and packing your handbag and shoes in there, leaving the suitcase itself for the clothes. And while we’re speaking of that, the roll technique… Read more »


  Well, it’s Thursday and cold and dreary here in NYC… so I’m throwing it back to last week, when I was relaxing by the pool in Cabo!  Maybe if I click my heels long enough,  I can make my way back there.  As many of you know, if you follow me on instagram, last weekend into the early part of last week, my boyfriend and I were in Cabo for a quick mini vaca.  He was actually there for… Read more »

take time to live

{Inspire Your Work by Departika on Etsy} Happy Friday, my friends! It has been a wonderful world-wind of a week around here… if you follow me on facebook, twitter, or instagram, you know why! Between finishing up a script to recording voice over and filming for a training video (at my day job), things have also been pretty exciting in my blogging world as well.  Plus Sunday, my boyfriend and I are headed to Cobo for a mini vaca.  He… Read more »

I travel (domestically) a lot for work, so you would think the last thing I would want to do is hop on a plane to relax… however its the exact opposite.  I love traveling!  A devoted Delta girl, I must admit I’m a little extremely addicted to sky miles.   Four weeks ago, I booked an impromptu trip to Nicaragua for my boyfriend headed to Aqua Wellness Resort.  Great reviews on Jetsetter, a deal on Sniqueaway, and confirmation from a friend of a friend… Read more »
