Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!



Celebrate with a staycation!


Sometimes the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is spending some alone time with the one you love. Whether you decide to transform your home into a mini spa or choose to stay at a hotel the most important thing is that you’re spending time with your loved one. Many hotels offer great package deals for Valentine’s Day but if that’s not an option you can easily make your home feel like a getaway!


Make heart-shaped food at home:

Take a class together:

Why not spend the day learning something new with your loved one? Maybe take a pottery class, learn how to blow glass, or take a cooking class!


Go out to a local restaurant and enjoy some festive food:

Whether you are spending the night with your significant other or spending it with your family you can’t go wrong with some local grub! Many local places go all out for Valentine’s Day with heart-shaped pizza’s or beer tasting events. So, be sure to look into your local restaurants for a fun Valentine’s Day experience!


Discuss life insurance:

Okay, this one may not be considered fun but life can change in a heartbeat so now is the time to discuss your options. Giving the gift of life insurance protects the ones that you love financially against life’s unexpected moments. The main reason most purchase life insurance is because of love, so it’s the perfect gift to give this Valentine’s Day to show your loved ones how you much they mean to you!
