New York City is one of my favorite destinations. I am in love with the energy, excitement and endless things to do in this city. For years, my trips to New York City are quite short, usually consisting of a day or two. Before leaving the East Coast for Dallas, Johnny and I decided to take a winter getaway in New York City. I feel like there will always more places for us to explore but for now here are some of our favorite places to visit and things to do. Our trip lasted four nights and five days.

Practical Gifts to Give for him & her feat. Mark & Graham

I’m a big believer in giving gifts people will use. After all, you’re spending your hard-earned money so you don’t want it to go to waste! I’m partnering with Mark & Graham¬†to share practical gifts for him and her.¬† One reason I love Mark & Graham is you can personalize every gift. Adding a monogram is the extra touch and can make a gift truly unique and memorable. Plus, you can shop for anyone there, whether it’s a significant other, parent, best friend or coworker.¬† My photographer who took these photos is actually looking at items to gift her bridesmaids from Mark & Graham.¬† I’m breaking this post into gifts for him and gifts for her. If you’re an early shopper, grab some coffee or warm tea and settle in! I’ve got plenty of great gift ideas for you! Plus, Mark & Graham wrap¬†all gifts in their signature gift wrap, so you don’t even have to do anything. Once they arrive, tuck them under the tree and you are all set.

Staycation at The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach

In the years I’ve lived in Virginia Beach, I have discovered it is quite charming. From the scenic¬†beaches, to beautiful hikes and growing food scene,¬†Virginia Beach has quite a bit to offer. Watching The Cavalier Hotel get re-built has been a joy and I was incredibly excited when they reached out asking me to do a staycation. Rich history lines the walls of this historic luxurious hotel originally built in 1926. Its guest list is quite impressive including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Frank Sintra, Muhammad Ali and a host of Presidents such as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson.

A Weekend in Richmond :: Quick Travel Guide

Richmond is one of America’s oldest cities and full of charm, beauty and history. It’s crazy to think it’s only an hour and a half away from Norfolk yet I never spent a weekend in Richmond until now. Our trip was a quick one but full of beautiful memories. It’s a city now known for its’ arts revolution,¬†lots of delicious food and beautiful landscapes. The capital¬†of Virginia, Richmond is sometimes referred to as the Capital of the South and I can see why. There are beautiful mountains nearby, innovative universities and lots of museums, street art and, of course, good ol’ Southern Charm.
