Would you try escargot? 🐌 I did on a food tour with @thetastingtours in St. Augustine! I should say food & wine, since both kept on coming 🍷 Here are some of the delicious places we visited: *CAFE ALCAZAR* Located in the Lightner Museum, you dine on the floor of what was once the largest indoor swimming pool 🏊‍♀️ This fancy eatery is open for lunch only and serves organic, local ingredients. *ATHENA RESTAURANT* We had flaming cheese and gyros with the best tzatziki sauce I’ve ever had 🇬🇷 Opa! *THE ANCIENT OLIVE* This gourmet grocery store has unique ingredients but the main attraction is the infused oil and vinegars. I’m talking every flavor from bacon to passion fruit jalapeño 🌶 *CASA DE VINO 57* A must for all wine and cheese lovers out there 🧀 Sip your way around the world while listening to live music in their courtyard. *BAR HARBOUR CHEESECAKE COMPANY* They have a cheesecake flight here — need I say more? 🤤 I’ll just throw some flavors out there — bananas foster, raspberry white chocolate, creme brûlée… Needless to say, I was stuffed after this tour! 3 hours well spent and the best introduction to St. Augustine, IMO 🍽 . . . . #thetastingtours #floridashistoriccoast #staugustinefl #staugustineflorida #staugustinefoodies #staugustinelife #floridaeats #floridafoodie #foodiefinds #foodtour #foodtourism #foodtours #foodtourist

Looking for good eats in Puerto Rico? Save this post! 👇 I’ve been living on the island for 2 years and here are some of my favorite, locally owned places on the East coast: *LAS VISTAS CAFE* You have 360° views on a rooftop owned by a local turned restaurateur who lives below. That’s me digging into their fruit platter! 🍉 *EKELEKUA* They have an arepa eggs Benedict that is perfection 😋 *LLUVIA* Has a variety of different breakfast burritos and lunch options. Always hearty, reliable, healthy 🌯 *BACOA* Farm-to-table food with innovate ingredients and recipes. Reservations a must! 🐟 *LA ESTACION* A BBQ spot with Nuyorican flavor. Hello, brisket and ribs! Reservations also a must 🍖 Do you research restaurants before traveling? 🍴 . . . . . #puertoricotravel #puertoricofood #placespuertorico #puertoricorestaurant #discoverpuertorico #visitpuertorico #puertoricoholic #puertoricogram #puertoricoblogger #puertoricoeats #puertoricoinstagram #puertoricobloggers #travelpuertorico

Mother/daughter photo shoot in St. Augustine? Yes please 😍 I hadn’t seen my mom since Christmas 2019 so I knew we had to go BIG for our reunion! A travel photo shoot with @flytographer was just what the doctor ordered. We got dressed up in matching outfits and captured shots around the city for an hour 📸 I’m obsessed with how they came out! There’s nothing more priceless than capturing memories with loved ones. Want to book your own travel photo shoot?

While in St. Augustine, I drank from the Fountain of Youth! ⛲️ This was one of the coolest places I’ve visited in a while. Here are some things you probably didn’t know: - St. Augustine is the oldest city in the US, dating back to 1565 - The Fountain of Youth is a Taino Indian legend, the natives of Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 - Ponce de Leon left Puerto Rico in search of the Fountain, which you can visit today There’s also a planetarium, cannon/weapon demonstrations, and peacocks roaming the premises 🦚 Would you drink from this mystical spring?💧 . . . . #fountainofyouth #staugustine #floridashistoriccoast #lovefl #floridatravel #floridatrip #visitflorida #onlyinflorida #travelflorida #floridatourism #floridavacation #historicplaces #historytravel #travelintime

Did you do anything fun this weekend? 😎 I tried, but everything in Puerto Rico was closed LOL. While I was trying to hit up attractions, all the owners and staff were at the beach 😆 Honestly, I’m not mad at it! In Puerto Rico, holidays are to enjoy, not to stay open and make more money. Money isn’t the priority — living is. I thought the island mindset would be tiring after a while but I’m seeing the opposite happen — it’s rubbing off on me! Next holiday, I’m gonna take it easy, go to the beach and drink a mojito. That’s what it’s all about 🏝 . . . #islandlifeforme #puertoricoblogger #puertoricoholic #discoverpuertorico #caribbeanisland #islandlivin #puertoricolife #puertoricotravel #puertoricopics #caribbeanliving #ilovepuertorico #beachplease

I visited the Burt’s Bees headquarters while in Durham, North Carolina! 🐝 Burt’s cabin was actually relocated from Maine and sits out front. It’s an unexpected find in the middle of downtown! I appreciated that throughout the city there were pollinator gardens meant to feed our bee friends 💛 Swipe to see a mural in their honor ➡️ Are you a @burtsbees fan? . . . . @durhamnc #durhamnc #durm #durhamnorthcarolina #burtsbees #downtowndurham #discoverdurham #travelnorthcarolina #northcarolinatrip #visitnorthcarolina #beesarecool #beesarefriends #burtbees #roadtripstop #eastcoastroadtrip

I found a liberal pocket in North Carolina, shhhh don’t tell anyone! 🤫😆 Durham has a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion 📖 Here are some facts that may surprise you: 🔹 This photo was taken at Bennett Place, the site of the largest surrender of Confederate troops in the Civil War 🏳 🔸 Durham was home to Black Wall Street, a historic area with the first Black-owned insurance company in the nation and banks offering mortgages & small business loans to Black residents 🏦 🔹 My hotel, the @21cdurham, had rainbow penguins decals on every door in celebration of Pride Month and an exhibit called “The Future is Feminine.” 🌈 Go ahead and add Durham to your list of safe and welcoming cities for all! 🙏 Is this a factor you consider when booking a trip? . . . #durhamnc #durm #durhamnorthcarolina #discoverdurham #visitdurham #northcarolinatravel #roadtripusa #usatravels #northcarolinalife #americanhistory #historybuffs #travelusa #northcarolinahistory #ilovenorthcarolina #bestcitiestovisit #usatravel #durhamcity #travelamerica #historicplaces

My first press trip in over a year is happening next month! 📸 I’ve been nervous but optimistic about summer travel this year... Some precautions I’m taking include: - I’ll be fully vaxxed 😷 - I booked direct flights to limit my travel time 🛫 - I’m doing carry-on only so no need to wait and collect bags (excited for a new partnership with Samsonite, deets coming soon!) 🧳 - I preselected and prepaid for my seat with an eye for placement that would limit my exposure to others 💺 - I’m stocked with sanitizing wipes and spray (I use the the Naomi Campbell disinfecting method) 👌 Most importantly, I am bursting with excitement to explore someplace new and experience the magic of travel again!

Have you heard of The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod? I’ve been getting up around 5:30am for the last few weeks to work on self-development before doing anything else with my day ⏰ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here’s a breakdown of how you can spend 1 hour every morning to kick off your day. 6 activities, 10 minutes each:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 1) Sit in silence 🧘‍♀️ ⁣⁣ This can be meditation, prayer, deep breathing, you name it. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 2) Positive affirmations 🙌 ⁣⁣ I’ve been doing money affirmations daily and getting a stream of random bonuses and unexpected paydays. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 3) Visualize 💭 ⁣⁣ I put together my first vision board! Jen Sincero’s book said it was like doing an arts and crafts project with the universe and I was sold lol. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Spend 10 minutes looking at each image and visualizing how you’d feel if you got them. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 4) Journal ✍️ ⁣⁣ You can write down things you’re grateful for or a particularly powerful affirmation that resonated with you. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 5) Read 📖 ⁣⁣ I’ve been doing audiobooks since my eyes get tired from looking at a screen all day. I find business and health audiobooks are my jam right now and get my brain going with good thoughts and motivation. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 6) Exercise 🏋🏻‍♀️⁣ When you wake up, change into your exercise clothes. This will encourage you to start moving first thing in the morning! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Whenever I work out before 9am I feel like an accomplished badass 💪 ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Even if not perfect, knocking out just a few of these things every morning makes me more motivated, energized and excited to have a productive day. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What’s the first thing you do every morning? ⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ #miraclemorning #miraclemornings #morningroutines #selfdevelopmenttools #selfdevelopmentjourney #selfdevelopmentgoals #productivemorning #morningrituals #developyourself #dailyselfcare #risewiththesun #limitlessmindset #riseandthrive #habitsofhealth #habitsofsuccess #everydaymatters #thinkandgrow #riseandslay #morningsarethebest #morningmindset
