Barca Fan!!! Will Travel for Soccer!

There is nothing quite like seeing a sporting event live and in person! The magic of the crowds, the noise, the excitement is all-encompassing.  I highly recommend traveling to watch those bucket-list sporting events.  It makes for great cocktail conversation and it adds to future sports experiences.  For example, the Hubs often tells the story of when we saw Barca play Bilbao–how we had primo seats and saw the action up close.  Here is a look back to a blog I wrote of that experience in Barcelona a few years back: My Man is a huge Futbol fan! World Cup,...

Dining at Staplehouse Atlanta

Sometimes you wonder if it’s all worth the hype…you know…the fabulous new kid on the block restaurant with a hip vibe…  I’ve wondered this about Staplehouse for the last year (although friends have told me it was *that* good).  Staplehouse is the hottest ticket in town in Atlanta.  Reservations are unbelievably difficult to come by – reservations are released once a month at noon and fill up quickly.  Diners may opt to go on the waiting list or try their hand at the eight-seat bar for walk-in seating. Soooo….when a friend of mine had a reservation for four and...

Girls Weekend in Naples, Florida–Inn on Fifth

Little Black Dresses, Buckets of Champagne, Gin and Tonics at the Pool, Dinner Reservations, Girl Talk 24/7….you gotta love a good girls’ weekend!!!  Our group of fabulous women descended on the town of Naples, Florida armed with restaurant recommendations, Cards Against Humanity, and vintage champagne.  Our home base for the weekend was the fabulous Inn on Fifth.

Our group of ladies wanted to stay somewhere with some...

Hotel Review – Secrets Silversands

Sometimes you just have to get out of dodge…find a quick flight and get your toes in the sand and a margarita in hand–STAT!  The Man and I recently needed a break from the day-to-day grind…wear nothing but swimsuits all day and have unlimited quantities of tequila and guacamole under a palapa.  Enter Secrets Silversands! This gem on the Riviera Maya was the perfect location for our last minute beach fix.  It’s reasonably near Playa del Carmen and the Cancun Airport.  Secrets Silversands is part of the Secrets brand that I know and love so much!      Not all...

Dinner at 10 Degrees South Atlanta

South Africa has been hot hot hot this year! I’ve been planning South African itineraries for honeymooners, families, and wine lovers.  It’s such a diverse destination offering winelands, dramatic scenery, shark diving, and Safari…and it’s easily combinable with other countries to widen the adventure to Victoria Falls, Botswana, and the beaches of Mozambique.  When the sales manager from the One and Only Cape Town invited me to dine at Atlanta’s South African gem, 10 Degrees South in Buckhead, I was delighted to accept! We briefly met the owner, Justin Anthony, before our dinner.  Justin told us that 10 Degrees...
