Review: Turkish Airlines Business Class

Long haul=big pain. But it doesn’t have to be. When the word “Greece” came up, I knew come hell or high water I was going to be in Business Class. You may remember my review of United’s Business Class flight from London Heathrow to Houston which changed my long-haul world.  I did a lot of…

I’ve never quite found myself speechless in regards to the beauty of a destination. I’ve seen cloud capped mountains meet the blue sea, meticulously manicured rows of wine leaves turned golden with a setting autumn sun and steel skyscrapers rise from endless asphalt to a peaceful sky. But never before have I been to Santorini, Greece…

chicago.

So far, I have a love/hate relationship with this town. Hate= Snow and frigid temperatures that humans shouldn’t necessarily live in. Love= Everything else. You may remember a while back, Chelsea did a guest post on her trip to Chicago (catch up on that post here). I was elated to go to such a beautiful…

costa rica.

The Westin Playa Conchal. Even the name sounds exotic. As the Westin’s first all-inclusive resort, I didn’t know what to expect when we booked this vacation through United Vacations.

i’ve been away.

Not necessarily away physically, just mentally. Work has been CRAZY. And we’ve been doing a little traveling– nowhere new, just the same ‘ole staples. New Orleans for a Bachelorette party. Vegas with my favorite group of party people. Entertaining out of town friends in Houston, and ultimately, forcing ourselves to try new places in our…

10 on tuesday– vineyards

I am routinely asked what my favorite vineyards are in The Napa Valley. While every vineyard has something to offer, whether it be the wine, the experience, the view or the food, here’s what I recommend (in no particular order): 1. Round Pond Amazing Cab and even better Sauvignon Blanc. The Round Pond winery is…

Thanks for all the wonderful feedback on my Fisher post from yesterday. It was every bit as amazing as it looked. Here’s the rest of our Napa Valley visit in pictures. Happy Friday!
