The Best Tour of St. Lucia: Joe Knows

A couple of my sister’s friends have been to St. Lucia before and recommended the Joe Knows tour to us. St. Lucia was our favorite destination during our Caribbean trip and the Joe Knows crew made it a blast. St. Lucia’s sea and land is beautiful. From the abundant flora to its volcanic views, it’s no wonder why St. Lucia is travel-worthy.The crew picked us…

Weekend Adventures: Charlotte, NC

Recently, my best friend moved to Charlotte, NC for work. Charlotte is about a two-and-a-half hour ride from Raleigh so I try to visit when I can!

My 24 Hours in Beverly Hills

At the beginning of June, I flew to Beverly Hills for a Press Junket. My time was short but sweet! I packed two dresses, a makeup bag, and my toothbrush and was headed on my way.

After the plane incident, I needed a weekend to relax and clear my mind. Where better to do that than Oakridge, NC?

I had the most fantastic time as Tyler, my boyfriend, showed me around the town which he grew up in. Oakridge is a small country town that is…

Weekend Adventures: Asheville

We had the absolutely most amazing time in Asheville, NC!!! So much so that Tyler wants to move there now… ?I booked our Asheville trip pretty last minute. I pounced on the idea of a weekend getaway and had heard lots of great things about the town. Also, I selfishly wanted time with Tyler to myself (aka: no video games!). This was our first experience with Airbnb and definitely not…
