• 7 things to do this weekend

    This weekend is Memorial Day weekend, yay! 3-day weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!! I’m heading to NJ again to see my boo, and I really need to start looking up things to do while I am there. Last weekend we went to a wine tasting at Torne Valley Vineyards in Hillburn, NY. It was super romantic and very relaxing!! Of course, my man didn’t think it was that romantic (typical guy) but it really was, trust me! While I’m sure most you have a cook-out to attend to and what not but if you’re looking for something else to do, check out these 7 things: 1. Go to…

  • 24hrs in Boston, MA {Birthday edition}

    Last weekend may have been Labor Day but it was also my 32nd birthday! Yikes, I’m really getting old… Anyways my awesome boyfriend wanted to take me away and I suggested Boston, because it is only an hour from our home state of RI and I hadn’t been there in quite sometime. My only birthday requirements were to stay in a nice hotel and to be taken out for a steak dinner. Requesting a nice hotel wasn’t new for me, I LOVE staying in hotels, but the steak dinner was another story.  Most of the time, I crave Italian, this time I wanted something I hardly ever order and that was a nice…

  • Mini-Weekender: Portland, Maine

    I love going away for the weekend and I really love when it’s a spontaneous trip! Well this past weekend I headed up to Portland, Maine for a little beer and some good eats. (ok a lot of beer) Portland is one of those cities that I’ve been to so many times yet find something new to do everytime I am there. If you love to eat and drink, Portland is the place for you. So where should you stay? I was fortunate enough to stay at The Westin Portland Harborview hotel. Gorgeous views and mouth-watering food is what keeps this place at the top of my list for future…

  • 5 Weekend Worthy Trips

    It’s about that time when summer is coming to an end and you start realizing that you haven’t done much in the form of a vacation or if your feeling British, a holiday. Over the summer I tend to take mini-vacations. I like driving somewhere for a few hours and just getting away from it all without all of the hassle of buying plane tickets and booking week-long accommodations. Getting away for a few days, especially when it is spontaneous is exciting! Traveling with my significant other is the best! I love getting away from it all and just having “alone” time. Not having to worry about grocery shopping is…

  • 24hrs in Portland, Maine

    Portland, Maine is hands down one of my favorite places to visit here on the east coast. After having a roommate in college who is from the area, I really got to know Portland as more than just a place to visit. Between the food, craft beer, and sites, it is easily a city that I would move to in a heartbeat. Impromptu trips are always the best ones and thats exactly what the boyfriend and I did  a few weekends back. He had never been to Maine before, let alone Portland, so I decided it was in his best interest if I gave him a small tour of one…
