My Top Spring Break Destinations

Hey Loves! 

There's nothing I love much more than a tropical vacation to paradise, and luckily Spring Break is not too far away! If you saw my "Instagram Round-up" post then you saw that my hubby gifted me with a trip to the Caribbean for Valentines Day. He said I could pick anywhere I wanted to go..& thats when it got hard! I want to go to so many places, but there were a few places that stood out above the rest; St. Lucia, Antigua, Tulum, and the Bahamas. I thought I could give you guys some insight as to why I picked these for my top Caribbean locations, and why you might want them on your list too! Enjoy!
My Top Spring Break Destinations


Best know for: Its Pitons (two volcanic mountains that tower over the island)

My hubby and I almost went to St. Lucia for our honeymoon but I chickened out because I wanted to guarantee the food would be good and I didn't know anyone who had been there. 

My resort picks: Sandals Grand St. Lucia & Ladera St. Lucia. Sandals because its all-inclusive, has tons of amenities, and is known for it's service and friendly staff. Ladera because it's build up in the mountains providing amazing views and private pools.

DESTINATION: Antigua (and Barbuda) 

Best know for: Spectacular beaches and breathtaking water. 

I wanted to go here because its the quintessential "private island" vibe. So calm and secluded, not over-crowded, and extremely romantic. We didn't end up booking here because the flight options had us making 2+ stops each way taking up 2 whole days just for travel. 

My Resort Pick: Cocobay Resort! It's absolutely beautiful with private beach-chic cabins right on the water that have private plunge pools, outdoor bathtubs, and hammocks..a dream.

DESTINATION: Tulum, Mexico

Best Known For: Mayan ruins, and beautiful turquoise water. 

Now I've been to Mexico 6 times but I've never been to Tulum. It's always a popular excursion destination for visitors from Cancun or Playa del Carmen but it's quickly becoming a destination favorite. With so much beauty surrounded by history, its the perfect place to explore and unwind simultaneously. 

My Resort Pick: Hands down, Azulik Tulum. It's practically an adult treehouse that is built on a cliff right on the ocean. It has suspended beds and swings attached with rope that allow you to practically float above the water. Not to mention the outdoor tubs and intricate tile work..a true masterpiece. I no..why aren't we going here?? It was sold out for the week we want to go!


Best know for: Multiple Islands, Cruise ship stops, Atlantis resort, the Exumas

I ended up choosing the Bahamas for our Spring Break trip because I've never been & I really want to see the pigs! LOL In all seriousness though..I can't believe it's taken me 28 years to get there! There's so much to see/do, tons of all-inclusive resorts, and countless excursions. 

My Resort Pick: There are so many between the different islands but since we are staying on Nassau I picked Meliรก Nassau Beach. It's a 4.5 star resort with 3 pools, 7 restaurants, countless amenities and its on beautiful Cable Beach. I can't wait to dip my feet in that beautiful ocean next month!!

Chic-Up Your Space for Spring

Hello Loves & Happy FRIDAY! 
Every season I transition my home decor just as I do my wardrobe. So for Spring I'm swapping out my warm wintery blankets & knitted pillows for bright, lightweight throws & cheerful accessories. Wether you have an entire home, an apartment like me, or even just a bedroom, you can really transform a space with a few great items.
I created this collage with spring & summer in mind. 
I chose bright cool-toned pieces and mixed metals. I also have an obsession with marble (if you couldn't tell) so theres a bit of that going on as well. I included the diamond wire lamp because I have seen so many versions of these lamps everywhere & they're so fun and bring attention to a corner or nook. I had to include a terrarium because as you know, they're adorable and plants bring life to the room. I love Gray Malin, he's an incredible artist and is best know for his arial images of beaches from around the world. If you have beige walls like me, one on his pieces will add so much interest to the room. Items like the fish "gurgle pot" and pineapple jar are trendy right now and can add a pop of color to your end-table or countertop. I had to include the natural stone coasters because they're absolutely beautiful and minimal and give an expensive classy vibe. Lastly, a modern clock & some cute bookends fill empty places and keep the eye interested. I love how everything flows nicely together. Hope you do too!
