Floral Fun/How to be a ‘Stylish’ Tourist

Summer is almost here and your suitcase (and sanity) is itching to travel anywhere far, far away from your current location. It’s okay to admit wanting a few days, no judging here. Instead I’m a full supporter of being unattainable for a few days. Like most trips, they normally entail a little touristing, possible gawking and a million photos. Being a tourist is fun, but sometimes locals do not share the same sentiment . Tourist can stick out like a sore thumb, which either makes you a target or someone to avoid. I don’t know about you, but if I’m visiting a new place I rather blend in than be the target of exploitation or a person to dodge. Wow I sound negative. I really do love being a tourist and traveling around the world. Personally I just prefer gawking at half-naked, man statues in peace, without being bombarded to buy a plastic replica. I learned that this “type” of situation is something I would like to avoid- for future trips. You may be in a country that speaks a different language, but your clothing can be multi-lingual. So today I want to give a few tips on how to avoid being a target tourist when viewing marble buttocks or whatever.  Read More

NYC and a Wedding…Sure, I’d l♥ve to.

Another weekend and another city…I promise, I have times where I sit on the couch, snuggle with my husband and pups, binge watch Game of Thrones and eat pizza. But this particular weekend was not one of those times. Instead I jumped on a direct flight to NYC to see my beautiful cousin marry her best friend. Elle’s wedding was my main reason for the trip, but I was also able to squeeze in some time to see a few things I had not seen in my previous trips to NYC. With only one day dedicated to being a tourist, I had to make it count. First up, Elle and Joe’s wedding! Read More

Boston’s Best|In THREE Days

Yep, I am in love. From the second I stepped into its crisp, fall air, Boston had me hooked. Why did I visit Boston? Well, after college it is easy to lose touch, especially when you and all of your friends are located in different parts of the country. So what do you do? Well we did Boston…and I believe this may become an annual thing (I hope), we pick a random city, meet up there and have one heck of a time.  If you are wondering why we chose Boston, don’t worry I’ll answer that question and more…Keep reading and see how Ileana, Megan and I took on (survived) Boston…and Halloween Read More

The Williams Take Cabo ✈ the Cape, a Thompson Hotel

So to say we were in desperate need of a “relaxing” vacation, is laughable…I say “relaxing” because my husband tells me I always seem to plan those  go-go-go vacations. You know, where the crazy family member(me) makes an itinerary for each day and dinner reservations weeks beforehand? Yep, I am guilty but my competitive side had to show him I could let go of the reigns and plan  (but not really plan) a real vacation. Read More
