Late Summer Getaway to Villefranche-Sur-Mer

Posted Leave a commentPosted in France

We took a late summer getaway to our favorite spot in the French Riviera, Villefranche-Sur-Mer.  Just one town east from popular Nice, this small town has it all: a great pebble beach, azure waters, colorful pastel buildings lining the sea in front of rocky cliffs, fabulous food, and charm exuding from every corner.  When we had a few days off at the end of summer, there was only one place we knew we wanted to be: We discovered VSM last year, using Nice as a home base and each day I planned for us to explore a different town by train.  […]

Bastille Day in Paris

Posted Leave a commentPosted in France

We had an epic Paris weekend recently celebrating Bastille Day on Saturday and Sunday France played in the World Cup championship to beat Croatia and become Champions du Monde! Paris is always magical but you guys… this weekend was epic!!! Bastille Day in France is 14 July and since this year it fell on a Saturday, celebrating it in Paris was a must-do for me! I had our trip booked about a year out 🙂 and it did not disappoint. If you can get to France for 14 July, do it! Paris has a spectacular fireworks show behind the Eiffel […]

What to Wear to Tomorrowland

I’m explaining what I wore to Tomorrowland 2018!  Compared to the States, Europe is much more relaxed in festival outfits which I enjoy – no pressure to wear anything crazy, but if you want to elevate your look you totally can.  My number one tip is to wear what you’ll be comfortable in!  My number two tip is to plan your outfits ahead of time so you’re stress free in the festival, and can focus on having fun and feeling beautiful. Day 1: Thursday – Travel Day, Check in to Dreamville and the Gathering Party I kept this outfit simple […]

Exploring Ibiza Town

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Spain

If you’re in the White Isle and need a break from the sun and beaches or the weather isn’t perfect, head on over to Ibiza town for a fun afternoon of exploring!  It is a picture perfect hilltop town with narrow, windy cobblestone roads, white houses with colorful shutters, and a castle on top. Crossover into the historic old town via drawbridge into the walled town. We spent our last afternoon exploring the narrow paths, popping in and out of cute boho shops, and admiring the colorful town.  Ibiza is covered in gorgeous fuschia flowers everywhere, making for even more pops of […]

Ibiza Birthday Part Two: Beaches and Clubs

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Spain

Ibiza Beaches After the birthday celebrations we had plenty of beach time in Ibiza.  Throughout the week we spent our days at our local beach Playa d’en Bossa in the south, another southern beach ses Salines, Cala Comte, my very favorite beach in the north-west, and Cala Benirrás in the north. While we still had sunshine, this year the weather at the end of May wasn’t perfect beach weather – the mornings were usually cloudy or overcast but it’d clear away by the afternoon.  I think typically late May and June is fine for the beach here, and the locals […]

Turning Thirty in Ibiza

I was very fortunate to have my entire family come out to celebrate my big 3-0, and I convinced them all to come help me celebrate in my favorite island, Ibiza. 😉 Ibiza is the perfect vacation spot in my humble opinion!  It is a relatively small island in the Mediterranean which means it’s surrounded by gorgeous beaches all within a 10-40 minute drive, and the perfect size to explore.  Each beach has it’s own unique landscape and vibe.  There are sandy beaches, beaches surrounded by tree-lined cliffs, or by red rocky cliffs, and almost all include turquoise blue water.  […]
