Craving some “me” time? Want to treat your spouse/significant other to a romantic getaway? Then it’s time to discover a historic place that USA Today named the “Best Northeastern Small Town.” Take a drive to Lenox, Massachusetts and enjoy relaxed elegance at the Kemble Inn. Think Champagne in blue jeans. While Bev is busy and in “camp-mode” at her full-time job, I took my hubby for a little R&R…

After our recent mini-vacay where we stayed at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston, we may have returned home just a tiny bit more “princess-y” than when we left. Sorry, husbands. We were treated like royalty (such is the Ritz-Carlton way!) and could have cried when it came time to leave. Here’s our whirlwind mid-week Ritz-Carlton, Boston experience! #RCMemories #Suitelife

Despite being in the final throes of launching our new site, we made sure we had time to see at least one show during #NYFW! It’s our Super Bowl and Oscars all rolled into one, and we always love our NYC fashionista trips!

Colour, by South African media personality, Nandi Madida has created a ready to wear label that celebrates the colorful world we live in. The South African clothing brand inspires diversity through the aesthetic of its magical suits, which make a woman feel powerful, bold, and confident. Inspired by the power suit, Colour celebrates all women.

That’s what the invite said, and after some gentle stalking of Nandi’s Instagram (1.2M followers!), we were sold, and we wanted to see her first NYFW fashion show!

We recently had the opportunity to pop over the state line to visit Daryl’s House, a super duper live music venue and restaurant in Pawling, New York. Not only did we get to sample some of the new dishes they recently added to their menu, we got to sit with DARYL HALL!! We asked him a bunch of questions and ate a lot of good food. Thank you rockstar gods for granting us this O.M.G. life-moment.

In less than two days, we managed to unlock “the tip of the Iceland iceberg,” i.e. Reykjavík and the surrounding area. Nevertheless, check out what we were able to fit into 46 hours! Consider this our Iceland 101 and we can’t WAIT to go back and bring you Iceland 102! We’ve got; how to get there, where to stay, where to shop, where to eat, and the Golden Circle tour covered.

Scotland was recently voted the most beautiful country ever (or something like that) and we believe it’s because the voters all visited Loch Lomond. You only have to drive but an hour out of Glasgow (1.5 from Edinburgh) to get into the most breathtaking scenery you ever did see! Rent a car, be prepared to drive on some crazy, single-lane, windy roads, and get ready for the road trip of all road trips!
