Really lucky to live so close to Newport, Rhode Island! I’m a huge fan of the ocean. It’s really so incredibly relaxing for me, a true escape where you leave your worries at home and just be in the moment. It was my second time, but this time it was with a group of ladies for my sister’s Bachelorette. We had complimentary hot chocolate and a mimosa while sailing away as we listened to some interesting Newport facts. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend!

I highly recommend sailing aboard with Adirondack II.

Sister’s Bridal Shower

Words are just words and they cannot express enough the love of a sister. More importantly when sharing big (huge) highlighting life moments such as a bridal shower. I love my Fofi to pieces and so grateful to have her in my life. As for her bridal shower, this bride-to-be had a vision and we {along with Anila and Lika) achieved every little detail. It was so much work but we did it! Check out the eye candy and feast your eyes…

Magical Montmartre

The most adorable and magical section of Paris was Montmartre for me! I loved it and I would go there again in a heartbeat. If you are into art and delicious food, this is the part of Paris you have to check out. I loved the cobbled stones and the little narrow streets. Seriously, can I just sit in the middle of the street and get lost? Yes please (that doesn’t make sense I know)! Montmartre is located in the northern part of Paris and is on a hill. I suggest wearing comfortable shoes to walk around a lot especially on the cobblestone streets.

Amazing French Food:

La Mere Catherine – If you want to experience french cuisine, go to this restaurant. I tried escargot (snails) and duck l’orange followed with delicious red wine. This is all from my memory but I remember having the complete five course meal which also consisted of cheese and a tart desert with an espresso at the end. Really amazing food hands down!!
