Most of the time when you read about visiting Jamaica it’s about the big resorts and hotels in Ocho Rios and Negril. Those are undoubtedly beautiful places… We opted for a version of Jamaica every bit as beautiful and fun as Ocho Rios or Negril but with a much more tranquil vibe.
We had stayed at the Ingleside Inn maybe three times before and loved it for its beautiful pool grounds (the pool is saltwater) set in a big grassy yard where you can lounge, dip, order a Caesar salad and Mai Tai for lunch and never need to get dressed to eat until the sun goes down.
Things That Make Me Feel Great
Getting enough sleep
Taking a time out/alone time…..
Hi everyone! We just returned from two back to back summer vacations. We’ve been on planes, in cabs, and spent loads of hours driving. We had a great time in both Las Vegas and Boise, Idaho but we are excited to be home now, and a big part of that is coming back to the routines and healthy…..
Summer is nothing if it doesn’t include a few adventures. This week we are headed to Boise, Idaho to visit my dear friend M and her family. I suspect there will be some late nights talking and lots of fun touring the town they are so happy to call home now…..
What are your plans for this summer weekend? Even though it’s the holiday weekend (or maybe especially because it is) we are laying low. Snuggling up with some books, movies, and maybe one of these 😉…..
Here are two books I am halfway through this month and really enjoying (albeit slowly😉). Both are light and fun if you’re trying to kickstart things, take it easy, or just love non fiction like I do.
Gretchen Rubin’s, Better Than Before ; A book about habits and how to make them work in your favor…..
With the exception of a couple of looks that are hard to imagine anywhere but on a runway, these clothes are so cute and wearable. Great dresses mostly and a few very classy but relaxed looking ensembles for work, not as easy to come by in the warmer seasons…..
We have two parties to go to this weekend. One for a graduation and one is a birthday pool party at a nice hotel.
For the pool party on Saturday I’m thinking of wearing something like this:…..
I know summer is only a few weeks away but I couldn’t help ogling J.Crew’s Fall lineup for this year. Which looks are your favorites? I like so many, but 11 and 14 are standouts…..
It’s important to give yourself treats. I went through a period in my life where I was pretty unhappy and once I became conscious of this unhappiness and was working to understand and dismantle its hold on me, I noticed that I had been withholding treats from myself. I wasn’t doing it consciously but I was allowing…..
We’re camping at the beach this weekend. Grandparents, and sandwiches, sand and saltwater, little tanned legs and big cozy sweatshirts.
Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend too!
