Napa Valley Tips + Tricks

Happy Fall, Y’all! I mean really, with the cool, fresh air rolling into Houston (finally!) it makes me so excited for the upcoming holiday season! As a native Texan, I start craving fall around the end of August or early September. This typically means we do whatever we can to seek out that fall feeling….

Canaves Oia Suites.

Sometimes luck happens. I research a lot for our travel. I mean A LOT. I have a semi-allegiance to specific hotel chains, but they certainly don’t dictate how I do things. And sometimes, even with all the research, we end up with resort envy. Thanks to friends, we knew Oia was THE place to be…

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…

santorini in pictures.

I’ve never quite found myself speechless in regards to the beauty of a destination.

As one of many Greek islands, Santorini is perhaps the most beautiful, and certainly the most photographed, boasting whitewashed villages…

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’m always comfortable with SPG properties and knew that this newly renovated resort would likely live up to the rave reviews. And, I can handle anything…

Just a few quickie pics this afternoon from our Costa Rica vacation. We ventured out to a new location this Memorial Day weekend in hopes of finding some much needed R+R– and we definitely found it. More pictures to come, so come back soon. Hotel: Westin Playa Conchal Airline: United (as if you didn’t know…
