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.

My Summer Beach Beauty Essentials

Hello my beautiful friends! I hope your week is going well so far. Since we are kicking off beach weather in Coastal Virginia, I want to share my beach beauty essentials. These are items I love to bring to the beach to keep my skin healthy and at its best. It’s so important to take your skin’s health very seriously. Take a little time to get your skin ready for the sun and you can enjoy your time soaking up that vitamin sea! There is nothing worse than coming home from the beach with sunburned, peeling and dehydrated skin. It’s not a good look and will most certainly age you rapidly. We don’t want that! Of course, in conjunction with these beach beauty essentials, don’t forget to drink tons of water to stay hydrated from the inside out! Now, let’s get to the essentials!

The Importance of Sleep – Luxury with Leesa

Sleep is an integral part of my life. During my days of being a competitive figure skater, I needed it to help my body recover and be ready to train the next day. When I was in Nebraska working full-time as a reporter and fulfilling my duties as Miss Nebraska USA, my busy schedule did not allow for much sleep. Whatever amount I got needed to be quality hours. Now, I still lead a busy lifestyle, but living in a bigger city means I need to wake up refreshed and sharp – ready to tackle the day ahead as a reporter, anchor and blogger. All of us have a seizure threshold and when we don’t take time to properly rest, we move closer and closer to it, according to Arianna Huffington in her book. Not to mention, the possibility of collapsing from exhaustion.

Sunset Swim :: Fall Beach Look with Bell Sleeves

Happy FriYay Everyone!
Today I’m sharing a fall beach look. I know Fall is officially here, but if you live by the beach like I do, your bikinis are still out and waiting to be worn. It’s still pretty warm, but we do get the dip in temperatures come evenings and then in the mornings. For now, I like bringing loose long-sleeve tops to the beach with me to pair with shorts.
