Diary Post, Uncategorized

Wow, I cannot believe January came, saw, and I conquered it. One week into 2018, I was already feeling defeated, so I didn’t anticipate January being a productive and positive month, but lo and behold.. it was fun, relaxing, and productive.  I thought sharing the good and the bad would inspire me to kick February’s […]

Visiting Charleston? Three Must Try Restaurants


Happy Belated New Year! Inexcusable, I know – but I was in a rut the first week of 2018… but I got my ass in gear and I’m ready to blow the lid off of 2018! The focus of my first big girl job straight out of college was event planning – I planned about […]

Dining at Nicola’s: Photo Series


I’ve been dining at Nicola’s, a contemporary Italian restaurant, for about two years, but that’s nothin’ compared to the two decades they’ve been open!

Most Relaxing Island? Water Island!

Things to Do

Honeymoon Beach located on Water Island is unlike any other beach I visited while in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  I know, I told you Coki Beach was the best beach in U.S.V.I. and that it was my favorite, but to be honest, they are tied with each other.  The beaches themselves, and the vibes they offer […]

Coki Beach? Best Beach on St. Thomas!

Things to Do

Lime in Da Coconut at Limetree Beach

Things to Do

I’ve been back in the Midwest for two weeks now and I’ve been in a downward spiral thinking about the clear-blue water beaches in the Virgin Islands.  Most of my trips are to major cities surrounded by industrial skyscrapers, but this time was different!  It would be my first trip out of the states, where […]

Best Deep Fried Taquitos & Cucumber Tequila


My favorite part about traveling is to eat great food that I don’t normally get to eat at home, so prior to my free trip to the Virgin Islands – I did a little digging into the island restaurant scene.   “I can’t wait for the food in the U.S.V.I.!”  I exclaimed to some friends. […]
