All the Sunshine and Juice

All the Sunshine and Juice

The weekend started off super chilly and windy (well chilly to Floridians), but ended on the most gorgeous sunshiney note Sunday. We spent Saturday downtown, walking around and enjoying some of our favorite local spots. I started off with a Fromosa, but had to get a margarita at the new Depot Market in celebration of National Margarita Day before having dinner at a local pizza place.

*I always choose the Fromosa*

Sunday brought more sunshine and higher temps, so we made sure to get back outside as quickly as we could. We checked out Clean Juice for the first time, and are all officially hooked! I was super intrigued by everything on the menu being 100% organic, and all of the wellness menu items. Energy? Check! Immunity? Check! Detox? Check! And of course - yummy? CHECK!

*Lil' Miss LOVED "The Young One" smoothie with organic banana, orange, and pineapple*

I enjoyed the Beauty Bowl which is filled with organic almond butter, almond milk, banana, cacao, cacao nibs, cold brewed coffee (YUM!), granola, maple syrup, and vanilla. H chose the Almond Butter Toast with organic almond butter, banana, hemp seeds, and honey. You can also choose gluten free toast options if you'd like. 

The perfect weekend.

10 Best Resorts for your Upcoming Vacation

*This post is a sponsored guest article that I'm excited to share you with you, as it came at the perfect time with us trying to plan our 10th anniversary getaway. Enjoy! 

One does need a relaxing vacation after months of laborious office work and hectic household chores. The monotonous and busy daily routine makes us anxious and gives us stress. In order to maintain a healthy balance in life between work and entertainment, a calm and enjoyable vacation is a must. Everyone has a dream vacation spot that they wish to visit. So for your upcoming vacation, you need to plan ahead and make a list of places you would like to visit.

Let's discuss some amazing resorts that you might want to consider for your upcoming vacation. It's important to make sure you have detailed information about the particular resort you are visiting. For example, their amenities, the facilities, food, security, comfortable rooms, location, and customer service. All these things matter a lot since you are going to stay there for a week or two. Because these benefits will ensure that you stay in a particular resort will be comfortable and enjoyable. Otherwise, it’s a waste of your time and money.

For instance, take a look at the Westgate Palace Orlando. It resides on a lakeside to offer a beautiful site and situated just ten feet away from the market area so travelers can find needed items right in the neighborhood. The efficient room services, delicious food, luxurious amenities are plus features. And this is what you call an ideal deal.

If you are planning to embark on the journey, but not sure which resort to book then you have come to the right place because we will let you know about the best resorts in the world. These resorts are not just highly luxurious, but are also budget friendly.

According to Conde Nast Traveler and Readers Choice Awards, the following are the Top Ten Resorts that you can select from when planning your upcoming vacation:

1. OI Jogi Home Resort

This small resort is recommended for families. As it can accommodate fourteen visitors at a time and is available only on pre-bookings and requests. OI Jogi Home, as the names suggest, is a perfect place to experience a safari adventure. As it is located in Kenya and resides on the 58,000 acres of bushland. However, the resort offers all the facilities that any modern place can offer, such as a gym, spa, tennis court, yoga room, and a fancy dining place!

2. Oliver's Camp Resort

This resort is the best pick for the people who want to experience a calm and quiet atmosphere, away from all the hustle and bustle. As it is located in the park of Tanzania and only has ten tents in total including the one luxurious honeymoon suite. The energy plan of the resort is both productive and sustainable as it uses solar power to run the machinery and system. This is also a safari resort and offers to have the most intimate relationship with nature.

3. Angsana Lang Co Resort

Thua Thien Hue is the place of Vietnam where Angsana Lang Co is located. This is a big resort with 223 rooms in total. Additionally, the swimming pool and the spa of this resort have won accolades and a prestigious award. The other attraction it holds is the proximity to the UNESCO world heritage sites. Therefore, one can easily experience both historical and modern lifestyle in one place.

4. Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp-Resort

These camps are a combination of both simplicity and modernity. There are only nine camps but are spread on a massive 61,000 acres. It is situated in Botswana and offers the calmest safari lifestyle. As each camp has a veranda and an open-air shower to enjoy the beautiful nature.

5. Deplar Farm Resort

Iceland is famous for being the most tension-free place, and having a resort in the center of the farm and mountains can accentuate the meaning of comfort and relaxation. It is a lodge that can cater to only thirteen guests at a time, and offers traditional amenities like a spa and gym but the facilities that make it different from other resorts are heli-skiing and fishing.

6. Naladhu Private Island Resort

If you wanted to experience seclusion then pay a visit to Naladhu Private Island. It offers twenty houses, each with their own pools, room service, butler, dining and spa place. It is located in South Male Atoll, Maldives.

7. Richard's River Camp-Resort

An old school camp designed especially for conservative couples and families. It offers privacy to the most as it features seven tents in total that can only accommodate 16 guests at a time. This resort mirrors a home feeling as it has been decorated by things that are bought and made by one couple over the years. It is located in Kenya.

8. Dromoland Castle Hotel and Country Estate Resort

We are all in awe of the royal lifestyle and wanted to experience it once in a lifetime. And Dromoland Castle hotel is here in Ireland to make this dream come true. It was a property of the O'Brien family but now has been converted into a public resort. The specialty includes old activities like archery, horseback riding, and falconry.

9. Adare Manor Resort

Another of Ireland's beautiful creations is located in Limerick just a small drive away from Dublin. It is located on 850 acres of the green patch and offers the best golf ground.

10. Chindeni Bushcamp

This bushcamp is situated in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia and only open from the month of May to December. It features four lodges in total and can only accommodate eight people at a time. Here, the solar panels are the main source of energy.


The list of best resorts is never-ending as the world is filled with beautiful countries and charismatic scenery. The main vacation trend nowadays is to book a unique and trendy resort for your vacation. For example, the safari resorts are big in demand and after that having a private island all by yourself is another major trend, started just a few years ago. However, to make it essentially easy and useful we recommend you visit Africa if you want to experience the best resort life. And after that Maldives is the second-best choice. However, in this area, America has been left behind, as only one American resort has made it to the travelers and readers choice award list.

Some of the other great picks that you must check out are Westgate Palace Resort, L'Horizon Resort and Spa, Sirikoi Lodges, Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, Nihi Sumba Island, Elewana Elsa's Kopje, The Brando, Velaa Private Island, Dorado Beach, Ritz Carlton Reserve, Kurumba, Esperenza, Four seasons and Jade Mountain resort. All these resorts have one thing in common and that is comfort.

Hopefully, with the help of the above list, you can narrow down some of your favorite resorts and plan to visit them in your upcoming vacation.

Champagne is Always the Answer

Champagne is Always the Answer

Cheers to that! Two of the things I seem to be known most for here in blog land is my love for a glass of bubbles and a fun graphic tee, so it's no surprise that I fell hard for this tee from Femme Luxe. After all, weekends are for graphic tees, a cozy pair of joggers, and champagne at breakfast. You're welcome.

Boy Bands and Dolphins

Boy Bands and Dolphins

Can you believe after living in Central Florida for 10 years, I had never been to SeaWorld? I've enjoyed their water park Aquatica (in my opinion - best water park in Orlando), but had never gone into the actual park. Enter the pre-school pass! We were able to sign up Lil' Miss for a free annual pass which includes admission to both SeaWorld and Aquatica throughout all of 2020. So, naturally we got ourselves annual passes to both parks as well. We haven't been annual pass holders to a theme park since the year of Disney back in 2014 - which was also amazing!

We activated our passes on the perfect day - the weather was sunny and in the low 70's, the Seven Seas Food and Wine Festival was going on, and the concert that evening was Lance Bass, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and the remaining member of LFO (tear for Rich and Devin). Luckily, I saw LFO live in high school with all 3 members. But, let's just say my teenage heart was happy to see some nostalgic performances during my first visit to the park.

Given that we can come back at any time throughout the year, there is still SO much more to see and experience. But it wouldn't have been a trip to SeaWorld without a visit to the dolphin exhibit. Lil' Miss was all giggles when they swam right up to her and "talked" through the glass. Priceless.

Hot Pink Dupe

Hot Pink Dupe

I've loved my Leith Ruched Dress for 3 years now, and I don't know what took me so long to try out Amazon's dupe version of this insanely popular dress for a fraction of the price. I finally pulled the trigger on it recently, and am wishing I had jumped on it sooner. I've been layering cardis over it while it's still chilly, but love that it comes in versions with short and long sleeves as well. It fits and feels exactly the same as the pricier version at Nordstrom, and if anything I swear it falls about an inch longer making it acceptable for my dress code at work too. Huge win!
