The Honda Classic

Spring has arrived and so has the Honda Classic. This event was yet another perk to living in Palm Beach. I couldn’t wait to make a trip to the tournament and enjoy the sunny Saturday.

The tournament started out with a sweet stranger giving me her ticket upon arrival. After that our first stop was for champagne, naturally. We marveled at the Moet tower and stopped for a photo op.

We poured a to-go glass and went to watch the tournament. On our way down the path, a ball brushed over our heads and landed by our feet. We watched as the crowds and cameras gathered around us. Our group  instantly had a front row seat for a final round! I must say this is the only golf we watched, but boy was it exciting.

Soon, my sister and I were sidetracked by none other than the Lilly Pulitzer lounge. You could say it was quite the ‘par-tee!’ They served signature cocktails out of printed tumblers, while you shopped the latest collection of golf gear. We had a blast meeting fellow blogger, “Amy Believes in Pink,” and playing in the photo booth.

Looking back, I was sad to see the tournament come to an end, but I was happy to head back to the resort for the fireworks. The finale wouldn’t be complete without an after party and hotel suite. What a great way to end a  great day here in PGA!

Bikinis in the Keys

“Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go…?” We did! My sister and I were seeking some sunshine and looked towards the keys for a mini vacay. She grabbed her boyfriend and I snagged the puppy, and we hit the beach.

We started off at Marina del Mar Resort, and were upgraded to a suite with a view of the pool and the port. I couldnt wait to have a margarita next door at Skipper’s Dockside. We listened to live music and relaxed by the fire pit with the pup.

When nighttime rolled around we made our way to the local dive bar down the street, Sharky’s. We picked tunes on the jukebox and played some pool, it was definitely a party.

The next day we headed to the hot tub and tanned. We wanted to hit the sand so we headed to the state park. It ended up to be a bust so we bought snorkels and we were off to The Bungalows. This is a brand new exclusive resort by the beach. Unfortunately they were booked without daypasses, but we are totally taking a trip here next time.

Riding down the road we stumbled upon a hidden gem called Baker’s Cay. We rolled in and lucked out as they let us spend the day there, and even bring the dog!

This place was basically a passport to paradise. I’ve never experienced such a serene scene. The beach was a private little cove with crystal clear water. They had rose’ and fruity drinks at the tiki hut and there were tons of water toys. To top it off there was an amazing beachside restaurant with the tastiest treats.

We spent the next couple days at Baker’s Cay, floating  around and sipping on sunshine. Once the sun was set, we were sad to say goodbye, but we cant wait to come back this summer!

Falling in Love with Lilly

February is one of the best times of the year because we are surrounded with flowers, love and of course Lilly! For Valentines week we rolled out our latest line. The collection featured some of my favorite things: pink, flamingos and pearls!

Celebrating the day of love in the place you love is certainly ideal. The Breakers was beautifully decorated with roses and the courtyard was glowing outside of the store. I found the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit just in time for date night.

I even accessorized with the new hot tropics Mckim sandals to pull in the pink. To top it off, my friend created a  fabulous flower display for the special day. What better way to celebrate than V-day than with your best babes?

Palm Beach or Bust

Heading into 2019, I am already making my resolutions a reality. I have always dreamed of living in Florida and working for Lilly, and I am proud to announce that I have already made both these dreams come true!

The stars suddenly aligned as I took a chance and applied for the Lilly Pulitzer store at the Breakers. I have been envisioning myself in this setting for a year since I first set my sights here. After my visit to this dreamy destination, I did everything in my power to steer my life towards south Florida.

Everything fell into place when my interviews one day turned into a job acceptance that afternoon. I was in disbelief as I came to realize that this step was the first towards the rest of my life. Everything was about to change, and this time it was just for me.

I packed my bags and hit the road with a backseat full of boxes and the rest in the rear view. It was then that it sank in that its been a year since the car accident that turned my world upside down. This job, this move, this drive… has turned my life right side up again, in the direction I’ve always dreamed of.

Making it to Palm Beach and moving in with my big sister in our dream apartment on the water, I have never felt more at home. I love where my life has led me, and it truly showed me that all this time of developing in the darkness, I truly found my light!

 

Special thanks to  everyone who helped me through this past year

and guided me to my greatest goal. I cant wait to see what the new year has in store!

Lilly Pulitzer Beach Bash

Being a fan of Lilly Pulitzer and working for the brand for so  many years, I have always dreamed of attending their annual bash in Palm Beach. As I moved to the area this month, my dream became a reality, not only starting work at Lilly at The Breakers, but also attending the legendary Lilly event.

As we walked into The Beach Club, we were greeted with rose’ glasses and photo flashes. We made our way to the bar under the printed palms, and spotted several socialites. I had the pleasure of meeting Tinsley Mortimer, one of my favorite Real Housewives of New York. She was so sweet and shared her secrets of the Palm Beach social scene.

As the party progressed, the room opened up and we popped over to our tables to pop some bottles. The dance floor was flooded with a fabulous bohemian band and the attendees gathered all around. My date and I joined in and danced the night away.

We had a blast listening to the band and playing in the photobooth. The evening ended with a nightcap and a Palm Beach swag bag. What better way to celebrate our love of Lilly than with your best babes on the beach? I can’t wait for next year!
