Puerto Rican Paradise!

Puerto Rico is one of those places I'll never get tired of visiting! It's beauty never ceases to amaze me and this time wasn't any different! The beach is beautiful and the island is the ultimate escape for me from the hustle and bustle of New York. The colors and the atmosphere are so inviting and the people are so welcoming. I landed in Aguadilla, which is a part of the island I had never visited before and I stood at The Courtyard Marriot Aguadilla. I was able to enjoy the pool and the fitness center along with their cafe and restaurant which were located conveniently inside of the hotel! Aguadilla was definitely less touristy than Isla Verde in San Juan and I got to see a whole different side of the island. Fresh fruit hanging from the trees, crabs peeking out of the sand and drinking coconut water from an actual coconut were definitely the highlights of my trip! I plan on visiting again very soon and I cant't wait to share it all with you guys again! Enjoy the photos and as always you can view more on my Instagram!

South Beach Sunshine!

Miami never gets old no matter how many times I visit! It's so full of life and I've been there so many times it practically feels like home to me! My fiancé and I stood at the Dream Hotel and we were extremely satisfied with our stay. The rooftop pool had wonderful views and the small boutique hotel was conveniently located by the beach. We spent most of our time enjoying the pool and the beach but we made sure to head out for a fancy dinner at Prime 112! The Miami hotspot was the perfect place for us and the food was absolutely delicious. In the morning, we had breakfast at The Front Porch Cafe and I will definitely be stopping there for breakfast again the next time I'm there! I ordered the breakfast tacos and I can't get them out of mind! They were AMAZING! Make sure to also stop by La Sandwicherie for the yummiest sandwiches in Miami. Enjoy the photos!

The City of Angels!

Los Angeles is one of my favorite places to visit every year. There are so many things to do and experience and I just love to explore more and more of this amazing city every time I'm there! The food is absolutely incredible and the weather is always perfect when I'm there. I stay at The Garland which has become home away from home for me. With a fitness center, pool and a balcony in every room, there isn't much more I could ask for! It's a quiet and peaceful haven tucked away in Studio City but close enough to Hollywood where all the action is. This time around, we made sure to make a stop over at Nobu Malibu. The drive to Malibu never fails to leave me in awe of its beauty. The restaurant is located right on the beach so you can enjoy the gorgeous view of the ocean while enjoying your meal. It's also a celebrity hotspot so don't be surprised if you have an encounter with one or two while you're there! Griffith Observatory is a must as well! You can go for a hike and enjoy views of the city or just drive up and enjoy the view minus the strenuous workout! Some of my go-to brunch spots are The Ivy and the Polo Lounge, which is located in the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel. If you're looking to enjoy a day at the beach, head over to Venice Beach where you will not be disappointed! Hope you enjoyed my recommendations and check out my Instagram for more!

A night at The James!

My fiancé and I spent a night at The James Hotel in Soho and we had the most incredible stay! We had a gorgeous view of the Freedom Tower and the hotel was a short walk away from all there is to see in Tribeca. We did a little shopping early in the day and enjoyed a lovely late night dinner at Vandal. In the morning, we headed to the the fitness center which would make any one want to fit a workout in with impeccable views of downtown from every angle. We then headed back to the room to pack up and check out at 2pm. As we waited for our ride home, we were able to relax in the beautiful sky lobby where guests can enjoy more amazing views of downtown. We then took the glass elevator down to the main lobby and sadly said goodbye to The James. Although it was a short stay, we had an incredible time and would definitely recommend it!
