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!
During this Coronacation, one of the things that has kept me both sane and entertained is the Hallmark Channel. I love to cuddle up in bed with one of the new Spring Fling specials on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Over quarantine, I must admit, I have binged about 20 so far, and I made a list of my top five faves to share with you. So grab a glass of wine, a warm blanket, and let’s get started…
First up, we have Bottled With Love:
A hopeless gal lacking love tosses the classic message on a bottle into the sea to an unexpected recipient.
Next, lets see Love In Store:
Two rival shopping network hosts must work together for a promotion. Will they find an off-camera spark?
After that, try Love, Of Course:
A young mom helps run a Harvest Festival. Will the rugged farmer stay or get in the way?
Now, on to Dater’s Handbook:
Meghan Markle’s character turns to a self help book to decide between Mr. Right and Mr. Unpredictable.
Let’s wrap up with Chance At Romance:
A handsome photographer is secretly set up with an admirer of his work with the help of his tech- savvy son.

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.

Today I had the pleasure of attending the exclusive “50 Shades of Blogging” brunch, hosted by Ticket2Events. They graciously rolled out the red carpet for local bloggers, and even a few surprise celebs!
I walked into Ravish restaurant with a few of my fellow business babes. We were greeted with rose’ at the bubbly bar and mingled with a few new girlfriends. Stepping out on the patio, we made our way to the photo wall, where we were surprised with a few of our favorite Bravo-lebrities!
New York Housewife, Kristen Taekman and Dallas Housewife, Leeanne Locken were both waiting to meet us. They were so sweet and welcoming, and I couldn’t wait to sit and get to know these Bravo babes.
After our photo-op, came the best part, being seated by both the housewives as they started to spill the tea. If I wasn’t starstruck enough, New Jersey Housewife Jill Zarin made an appearance with her daughter and comedian, Heather McDonald.
I felt like I was starring on a reunion special as the ladies shared all of the Bravo drama from costar secrets to lawsuits and more. As a bonus, Heather McDonald heard my friends and I were interested in attending her show, so she gifted us VIP passes for that night!
I must say, this was an amazing day, filled with surprise guests and rose’. It was such a great opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow bloggers and have a meet and greet with my favorite reality stars. I can’t wait to see what the next event has in store!

Every time I make my way to West Palm, I always try to make a stop by my favorite brunch spot, Restoration Hardware. Now don’t let the name confuse you. It actually houses three levels of fabulous furnishings, and is topped with the best rooftop restaurant in town.
This hot spot sits on the fourth floor atop the grand staircase as the sun shines through the glass atrium. While you’re waiting on your reservation, you can hit the barista bar. Here you can order anything from a mocha to a mimosa, and step out on the terrace overlooking all of Palm Beach.
From palm tree photo ops to prime time sunshine, this is the perfect place for a girls date. Once we were seated inside, we had a I love tasting of their savory seasonal menu, starting off with the burrata, then the burger, and top it off with a banana split!
Whatever you are in the mood for, RH is sure to have it in store… from a bestie brunch date to an evening under the stars. I cant wait for my next Restoration occasion!
