Portlandia

 

This last weekend, my best friend and I met up in Portland for a girls weekend. We had a blast. Stayed in The Westin Downtown and it was beautiful. We dinned at Departure on the 15th floor of the Nines building and then Portland City Grill on the 30th floor of a big building downtown in the financial district. I would definitely recommend that if you are ever in Portland. There is great shopping downtown and actually fall is a great time of year there. So beautiful when the tree turn in the NorthWest. photo-2

This was just one outfit I wore in Monaco. See more pictures from my trip below… This was on my birthday! I felt so spoiled. Who gets to spend their birthday in Monaco? Definitely a “special” time for me. We stayed at the Fairmont in Monaco right on the water. It was divine.

The Dorchester

I just went to London for the first time and wanted to share some pictures from my trip! It was amazing. I didn’t know what to expect but I actually fell in love with London immediately. There is no place like London. In the area I was in, it was green, beautiful, clean, safe and the people were so friendly and welcoming. I stayed at the Dorchester, SO BEAUTIFUL. There is so much history there. Here are some pictures from the trip….

Eurotrip

20130710-231314.jpg

Me sleeping away on the trip to Europe. Headed to London, 8 hours from Atlanta. We flew 1st class and it was awesome! The beds lay all the way flat, you have a pillow and comforter and you can go right to sleep! There is so much space, they take care of you so well and it was the easiest flight ever. I could go anywhere no matter how far on these flights.

We are staying at the Dorchester here and it’s beautiful. Great location and we’ll be exploring here until Sunday when we leave for Dublin. It was also a nice surprise to have such an easy going entrance into England. Customs and Immigration was so easy, no long lines and nice people. So far everyone here is so accommodating and sweet.

I love how clean it is here and it’s really beautiful! Can’t wait to see more!

Beau Rivage

Here is last nights dinner outfit. Leather shorts from bebe. Top from H&M. Shoes are YSL and Chanel bag! Oh and my favorite Hearts on Fire diamond heart necklace.

Arrived at the Beau Rivage last night for the weekend to spend a friends birthday here. I have never been here but when up pull up in front it looks just like Vegas. The inside is just like the casinos in Vegas too! It’s too bad the water here is not pretty… At all. :/ but we ate at their steakhouse here last night and it was pretty good. Very beautiful decor too. Hanging out at the pool now, similar again to Vegas. We are going to show tonight here that is a Cirque show.. We’ll see! All in all it’s a nice second to Vegas but not quite the same 🙂

The Front Porch Cafe

Last weekend in Miami we ate at a place right on South Beach called The Front Porch Cafe. It is actually pretty big, they have a nice big outdoor area where we ate and it was perfect. It was the farthest restaurant north you can get which was nice it was away from some of the craziness down there. It was Saturday and there was a lot of people but we didn’t wait long, maybe 15 minutes. I had breakfast and it was yummy! They have a huge menu and great Mimosas! Highly recommend! <3

Oh and the weather was great! I wore some cute coral colored shorts, a white blouse from Bebe and Kendra Scott earrings. Oh and my favorite Tom Ford Miranda Sunglasses! And this necklace is the small David Yurman infinity diamond necklace. I love wearing it a lot because it’s dainty and classy.

Alexis Cover Up

I am obsessed with this new cover up. I actually got this on sale from one of those sites I think it was Haute Look or Gilt. But it is amazing! How cute are these sleeves? So soft and comfortable. It’s a long cover up but it’s so breathable that you aren’t hot. The colors are so vibrant and I love the long leg slits it has on both sides. So fun! I love this brand!

New Drink!

While staying at Canyon Ranch this last weekend I discovered my new favorite drink! (non-alcoholic of course) It was so refreshing. I haven’t made it at home yet but I can’t wait to this week. I would have never thought of these flavors together either. It’s a watermelon lemonade with mint. All natural with real watermelon and mint ingredients! These flavors were divine! Yum! <3

Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa Miami Beach

Last weekend was spent at Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach and it was divine! They have beautiful facilities. The Spa was my favorite part, I would definitely revisit for the Spa alone. The massage was great but what they offer in the Spa is better. They have all types of things I’ve never seen before. Most spas will have the saunas, steam room, and hot tubs. This place had, herbal steam rooms with added humidity and the room was beautiful with amazing tile work. They also had an igloo. Where you stand and the aromas are cold and sprinkle from the top (this was my favorite). In addition to these you could also step into a shower that had “thunderstorm” and other unique settings that really felt amazing. I would highly recommend it.

As far as the beach service, the guys who set up your chairs, towels and umbrellas, they were spot on and great! I did however order a drink from the beach server and waited an hour and it never came. So the service there wasn’t so great.

Room service was fast and the food was great! The women who delivered it was so sweet and made it extra special for me. She went out of her way to make me a mimosa! 🙂

I also took a few of the yoga classes they provided (which there were AWESOME options for activities including Ayurveda) and the class was great. I am a yoga instructor so I didn’t agree with 100% of the alignment details she taught but her sequencing was great and she was energetic but also calming.

The only thing I really would change is their car/taxi situation. They have to call cabs and it can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. I’ve stayed at some of the nicest resorts in the country and most places have a “house car” or a few that will take you anywhere with in a 5 mile radius or whatever and can also pick you up. It’s first come first serve and it goes A LONG way with the guests. What a small cost for such convenience for your guests.

Their beach was quiet and calming, not a party like you would find further down south beach. It was just what we were looking for. <3
