Newport, Rhode Island Summer Travel Guide

Summertime in Newport is pure magic. Sailboats, sunshine, and the sea - it just doesn't get better. We are lucky enough to live just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the gorgeous city by the sea, so the number of times we are asked for our must-dos in that pretty little place is countless. Well, thanks to Erin McGinn's picture perfect images I'll now have all my answers in one sweet spot.

Eleuthera + Harbour Island, Bahamas Travel Guide

Around March 30th, Andrew and I both channeled our inner Verruca Salt and declared we needed warmth and we needed it now! It sounds dramatic, but if you've ever experienced a spring like the one we are currently having in New England, you would understand the primal need to get to the sun. I just wanted a few days of warmth in a place with a little character before my brain exploded. Ok, now that is a tad dramatic, but it's precisely how I felt. Don't judge.

Cranberry, Elderberry Spritz with Runamok Maple Syrup

Spring cocktails are happiness in a glass. There is absolutely nothing like the first sip of a yummy cocktail on the patio after a long winter, and I have just the recipe for such a special occasion. Now, it's important to know, whenever I plan on serving a cocktail I make sure it only has a few ingredients - because who wants to sit in the kitchen mixing all night while your friends are enjoying themselves on your dream cocktail + patio evening? Well this little bubbly sipper is so easy you could do it in your sleep (or after a few perhaps), but they are fun and festive enough to make the evening feel special. Tip: the elderberry maple syrup from Runamok Maple is what really makes this spritzer shine.

Craving Spring + National Puppy Day

Ok, uncle. I need spring. I'm pretty sure I break right around this week every single year. It's like clockwork. At the end of March, I want spring. And I want it now. Very Verruca Salt of me. But I think it's just human nature to start craving life again. I want to see buds on the trees. I want flowers in my garden. I want my allergies to flair (ok, not so much that). I want sunshine on my chest. I want afternoon spent lounging on the patio with the pups. Just the little things, nothing huge.

Women Who Inspire: Erin McGinn

I'm SO incredibly lucky to be surrounded by women who inspire me. Women who make me strive to be better every day. Women who push me out of my comfort zone (I don't like it there anyway), and women who are also there to tell me to go easy on myself. Erin McGinn is a perfect example of one of these amazing women. If you follow me on instagram, you've definitely seen me credit her a time or two (or two million) for her beautiful photography on our work together.  Erin's images never fail to make everything look extra lovely, so I trust her whole heartedly with everything we do.

Palm Beach Travel Guide

It never fails. The minute February rolls around I start to crave some serious vitamin D like nobody's business.  Yes, even me, the certified snow queen needs an escape to the warm weather in the depths of winter.  I just like to remember what it feels like to wear flip flops again, to not have ten layers on at all times and to twirl around in a dress again. It's really the little things.
