A Day at the Ben

If you are looking for an upscale summer staycation, look no further than The Ben. This is West Palm’s hottest new luxury hotel, complete with a rooftop pool overlooking the intercostal. This Marriott hotel brings new energy just steps away from downtown.

The Ben features stylish restaurants like Spruzzo and Proper Grit. If you’re in the mood for seafood or southern cuisine, you have come to the right place. Not to mention, the drinks are the sugar on top of a fun day in the sun.

You can sip on a signature cocktail while you take a dip in the rooftop pool. This place is full of photo spots and 360 views. The rooms are modern yet cozy, a perfect place to relax before you hit the bars. This is the perfect place for a girls getaway. I cant wait for my next weekend stay!

Floribama or Bust

Every year our family gets together for a summer getaway. This year we were headed to Hawaii… but the pandemic had other ideas. As the date approached closer, we had to change up the game plan. To stay safe we booked a trip to our own state, and made our way towards the “Floribama Shore.”

Now like most of you, what comes to mind is the show on MTV. Although,  the shore has much more to offer, and I wanted to show you what kind of fun we had here in the sunshine state. On our first day, a family friend took us out on a boat ride to Robinson Island. It was a great place to park your boat and just float.

We stayed at the Turquoise Place Luxury Condos in Orange Beach. It was located right on the main road, and most importantly our condo was beach front. I loved relaxing in the hot tub on our porch overlooking the ocean. Another attraction was the lazy river complete with tiki drinks.

On rainy days we hit the shops. The Wharf was a great stop because it had a fun mix of dining options and beach boutiques. They even have entertainment in the evenings. You can also get a great photo-op at the ferris wheel.

We ate at a few fabulous restaurants, some of the top rated in the area. My favorite was Voyagers. This venue was upscale with amazing service and one of the best eats ever. I sampled several sides, from the sweet potato parmesan gnocchi to the bleu cheese mac and the pork belly creamed corn. What a treat! Another great experience was the Safari Club. The ambiance was amazing and the food was fabulous to match. I would also recommend a few restaurants at the marina: Fisher’s, an elegant seafood experience, as well as their sister restaurant, Playa, a casual-cool hangout overlooking the ocean.

Overall, our favorite night out hangout had to be the Flora-Bama Lounge. It’s the best hometown hotspot and a landmark bar to locals. They have several stages to watch while you sip on a Bushwacker at the beach bar, or hit the dance floor at the honky tonk. This place certainly has something for everybody. On our last evening we enjoyed The Hangout. This place is known for their music festival scene, with live music and a laid back atmosphere. I must say, wherever you decide to go along the shore, you are guaranteed to have a good drink and an even better time!

Catch of the Day

Over Memorial Day Weekend, I had the pleasure of joining my sister and friends on a deep sea fishing charter here in South Florida! Now I know you are thinking… this is not my kind of boat ride, and you may be right! We are more of booze cruise babes, but today I wanted to try something new. So we set sail for an afternoon on the stormy seas.

Now it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing, as the captain warned us about the five-foot waves ahead. It was a high speed chase to the open water as we crossed over into choppy seas.

Our captain tossed out the lines and dragged them through the sea and soon enough, we were able to reel in two big fish! We were even rewarded with a side-trip to the sandbar.  It was the perfect way to end the day as we sailed back at sunset.

Special thanks to Jana Angel at Living Local for chartering the trip, Captain Phil Ferreira-Alves

and Chase Wilcox for hosting us, and Found at Sea Charters for the fabulous footage!

Bungalows at the Breakers

Have you ever wanted to take a take a trip inside an exclusive bungalow at The Breakers? Well follow me for a sneak peek into a perfect day by the pool. Currently I work for this prestigious hotel and one of the best job perks is being able to book a bungalow for a great rate.  It’s a sweet summertime escape! The pool and beach area is only accessible to hotel guests, so it’s a perfectly private place to relax.

I like to bring my best babes on a summer day to sip on frose’ and soak up some sun. These cabanas  have everything you could need, from luxury amenities to lovely lounges, where you are able to enjoy an epic ocean view. What a chic retreat!

After laying out in the heat, I like to head over to the pool for a quick dip. If you prefer, you can make your way over to the bar for some light bites and frozen drinks. Finally, take a stroll down the beautiful sandy beaches and wade into in the ocean waves.

At the end of the afternoon I love to grab a drink to go and take a dip in the hot tub before the sun sets. It’s a wonderful end to a picture perfect day at The Breakers, Palm Beach.
