Chef’s Counter at Avecita

After a delicious dinner the first night at Ave in the gorgeous Kimpton Seafire, I basically felt like family. Everyone at this restaurant was beyond wonderful and honestly every night I dined there (all but once) really solidified a memorable vacation experience. I don’t know if I was the first single lady to ever grace…

Kimpton Seafire Resort

So you saw my sorta funky, sorta fab room, want a quick tour of the rest of the place? Thought so. Things to note: The water is literally see through. The pina colada was DAMN strong. Everyone was here for a wedding. I understand why. Lobby was totally Kimpton. The bungalows, I am obsessed with….

Kimpton Seafire Digs

The theme of this blog is about to be romantic shit I planned that didn’t go as planned. 😉 Fresh off of my Zero George cooking class, I was headed into the dope beach vaca that the Gent and I had planned since January. What I didn’t plan on was taking it alone. <Eye roll…

Zero George Cooking Class

Because I’m romantic AF, I booked the for Gent and me, “the best new cooking class” in the world. He got real sick so I did what any classy broad would do and begged for a store credit.  One or my bff and lady loves, joined me do an absolutely fantastic evening of cheese balloons…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

..with Miami! While, I don’t regret moving away from the madness, I still subscribe that three days down there is the perfect cure for what ails you. Certainly, cured me of a brutal last couple of weeks. So I share with you, my little loves of the Magic City.. A good hotel. A cool room…

2016 Wrapped Up

“2016, playing dirty, not clean.” – Drake Elated this year is over, as just about everyone is it seems. Rather than dwell on the meme-worthy awfulness of the year, I decided to take a look back at the best bits. Solo-travel watercolour sunrises on Miami Beach. Some of my fav ladies enjoying a party at…

Motivational Monday

Short week, guys! Hope everyone is getting a jump start on the new year and diving into a personal project or two. Have a great week!

This is 34

Another year in the books lands me at “this is 34.” I suppose 34 feels about right. Old enough to have figured out who I am and smart enough not to make the same mistakes twice. Young enough to have so much to look forward to and plenty of time to improve life and make…

When I Dip, You Dip, We Dip

VIP guests moving in overnight. 😉 You put that hand up on that chip…When I dip, you dip, we dip. Dive into this easy-to-make, delicious, carmelized onion dip from Ina Garten. When VIP visitors demand VIP snacks, you can…

Hills of Jalisco

One more time for the people in the back – it was my third Mexican jaunt this fall and I was beginning to get nervous the airport folks would think I was a drug mule. Thankfully, Mexico let me back in the beautiful country. I know this sounds mad, but recently, life has brought me a…

Cabo, Tres & Quattro

The last couple days have been a blur. A hurricane hit. No power. No water. The storm hit overnight. It was truly terrifying. Since sleep wasn’t an option, I stayed awake all night to enjoy the lightening show and guess when the balcony swing would crash through my door. Somehow it didn’t! Even prior to…

Cabo, Day Uno

On zero sleep, and dodging a hurricane, I rolled into Cabo right on schedule. First item of business was some decent food! Complimentary guacamole would be a solid start. Thanks, love. Followed by grilled octopus tacos…be still my heart. I checked into this superb room. Took in the view from the balcony. And changed for…
