Yoga on Spectacle Island
Has anyone else been practicing yoga for over two years and STILL cannot do crow? Yeah, yup, that is me. With that being said, I still really enjoy yoga.
Last weekend I grabbed my gal Lauren, and went to yoga on Spectacle Island (20 minutes ferry ride from Boston)! Well, it was more like, Lauren grabbed me but who’s counting anyways. The best part about the island, the quietness. You immediately feel the calmness and serenity that being away from the city has to offer. Which is exactly what I was looking for to start my Saturday morning. We had a few minutes before and after our practice to check out the Boston harbor views, ocean (you can go into the water) and the beautiful florals.
What do you need?
- Ferry Ticket to get to Spectacle Island
- EventBrite Ticket for Yoga
- Yoga mat – I use a Manduka, they are great for peeps who slide around a lot, keeps ya in place.
- Don’t forget to bring money for a ferry ride treat on the way back! I picked beer.
naples restaurant week
Here I am, just continuing to blab about Marco Island. Well, Marco Island was a dream! So there it that. It has been raining in Boston for what seems like all of 2017 (reality, about a month) so Jimmy and I decide to escape the rain and head to Marco Island. As the weather Gods would have it, I took the rain with me. But great news, while we were there it was Naples Restaurant week! Heck yeah!
Every night we tried a different restaurant, and let me tell you I ate WELL. Disclaimer, none of these restaurants were particularly cheap. Naples is more expensive than one would think. Below are the three restaurants we tried in no particular order.
- Campiello – This was a good ol’ fashion Italian restaurant. I 100% got the bolognese which is forever my go to. I also got the Octopus which was insanely tender.
- Baleen – I cannot pronounce this place to save my life. This entire venue was to die for. It’s apart of the La Playa Beach and Golf Resort which has the ultimate best yellow tiles, a fire pit, front porch with rocking chairs, back deck to eat, and is right on the water. I had the lobster risotto and it was creamy.
- The Oyster bar – This was hands down Jimmy’s favorite pick of the week. Not just the because of the food, but the environment. It had that old timey feel inside. Riveted leather couches, big old Hollywood lights, oyster bar (of course) and an entire wall of wine! You just felt like a king there. It was relatively late when we arrived, so we shared one of the pre fixe for dinner. The dessert was hands down the most notable item. Salted caramel mouse – how did I not know this was a thing?!
Until next time!
Last weekend, Jimmy and I headed to Marco Island, Florida for a quick little getaway. It was incredible. Originally, my Father and Stepmother were supposed to meet us at The Hilton on Marco Island but my Stepmother got super sick (no worries, she’s healthy now).
First of all, the Hilton on Marco Island was a dream. It had everything you would expect. A bar facing the water, a decent sized pool, and right past that THE BEACH. I would walk right out of my hotel and onto the beach. I did bring my turkish towel that I never go to the beach without, but The Hilton did provide these darling yellow stripped towels for us. Isn’t towel service the best?
I got this cutie Palm Tree dress from Francesca’s Collection a few years back. I believe they still have a similar pattern, but maybe not the dress. Link below!
oak bluffs – martha’s vineyard
martha’s vineyard wine festival
Just packing up for our annual Martha’s Vineyard Wine Festival trip! Jimmy and I first went three years ago. Last year we brought Jimmy’s mom. This year we added Jimmy’s dad. It’s absolutely the best event ever. Wine, food, shopping and oysters.
Warning: It’s usually a bit rainy; but rain is romantic, right?!
