I decided to make a getaway to North Georgia and make Rome (of Georgia, not Italy) my home base for the adventure. Barnsley Resort offers guests all kinds of extras as part of their stay: parking, wifi, lawn games, access to great trails, canoeing, catch-and-release fishing, S’mores and even access to the Manor House Ruins and Gardens. Beyond the resort’s perimeter, the city of Rome also has so many places to choose from it was hard to narrow down, but with the sun going down and a chill in the air, we chose the most dog-friendly place downtown. Rome highlights included other trails like the Heritage Trail, with jaw-dropping views of the rivers; start at the Town Green and follow it all the way through downtown Rome, if you want.
In addition to myriad on-property activities the hotel already offers (complimentary use of bicycles, indoor pool, spa and Afternoon Tea), the hotel will also feature this Wellness Weekend to help guests relax and recharge. For guests to enjoy this Wellness Weekend, The Ballantyne is offering a selection of special packages and rates for people to book their stays, including the Third Night Free; Spa Haven package; Carolina Residents rate; Stay 3 or More and Save 20%; and AAA Members (including two cocktails). The Spa at Ballantyne’s exceptional massage therapists will walk you through self-massage and stretching techniques you can use at home or office, to reduce stress and fatigue. This complimentary class will allow a maximum of 10 people, register in advance by Friday, January 22 at 7:00pm with the spa-
Another must-see is Dallas’s Art District, with the Meyerson Symphony Center, Nasher Sculpture Center and Crow Collection of Asian Art. In addition, the Ritz-Carlton features Uptown’s largest luxury ballroom; an outdoor swimming pool; and underground valet parking to protect your vehicle. If your face needs a boost, choose between a long list of facials, such as the Oxygen Facial (which infuses hyaluronic acid and oxygen into the skin) or the Vitamin C Facial (centered around 100 percent pure Vitamin C). If you do decide to travel at this time, we recommend you wear a face mask, pack and frequently use hand sanitizer, book a hotel with free cancellation and check websites or call for latest updates on policies and closures.
You can’t simply hop on a plane from America to Paris without a little planning ahead and some documentation. Even if you don’t currently have any travel plans right now, it’s a good idea to go through the process of getting a passport. Some countries require travel visas for a visit of any amount of time, while others only require them if you’re planning on an extended stay. Answer honestly about what you’ve brought with you, let them know how long you’re planning to stay in the country and be honest.
#AD Did you know that if you are an adult with psoriasis, it is always with you? You take it with you everywhere & you never know when it will flare. It can really put a damper on a spa day. I have researched DUOBRII® (halobetasol propionate and tazarotene) Lotion, 0.01%/0.045%, and think it may help. DUOBRII Lotion is formulated with ingredients that allow it to keep the skin feeling moisturized for up to 24 hours, not leave a greasy residue and go on easily while feeling light on the skin. DUOBRII Lotion is a treatment for adults with plaque psoriasis that keeps on working even after you stop using it. I am looking forward to fewer worries on spa days! DUOBRII® Lotion Indication and Important Safety Information DUOBRII (halobetasol propionate and tazarotene) Lotion, 0.01%/0.045%, is a prescription medicine used on the skin (topical) to treat adults with plaque psoriasis. It is not known if DUOBRII Lotion is safe and effective in children. DUOBRII Lotion is for use on the skin only; do not use it in your mouth, eyes, or vagina. DUOBRII Lotion may cause birth defects if used during pregnancy. Stop using DUOBRII Lotion and tell your healthcare provider right away if you become pregnant while using DUOBRII Lotion. DUOBRII may cause side effects, including: · If too much DUOBRII passes through your skin it can cause adrenal glands to stop working · Cushing’s syndrome, a condition from too much exposure to the hormone cortisol · High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) The most common side effects of DUOBRII Lotion include redness, itching, swelling, burning, stinging, application site pain, inflamed hair follicles (folliculitis), thinning of the skin (atrophy), peeling and rash. To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact Ortho Dermatologics at 1-800-321-4576 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or visit www.fda.gov/medwatch.

Let’s chat! The DAV (Disabled American Veterans) @davhq has launched a new, innovative and festive donor challenge to support veterans by donating spare change. #ad The DAV Spare Change program allows donors to round up purchases on a credit or debit card on a monthly basis to automatically donate “spare change” to give hope for a brighter 2021 to disabled veterans. The DAV Spare Change program allows participants to “swipe for good” with each credit card swipe made during the holidays. From stuff for the kids, to dinner with friends, or decor for the house, the Spare Change program helps veterans of all generations get the benefits they’ve earned through DAV’s no-cost services. For example, a DAV Spare Change donor purchases a pair of gloves for the cold weather upon us for $7.84 on a linked debit card or credit card. DAV automatically “rounds up” that transaction to the next dollar and that spare change, in this example, $0.16, is donated to help injured and ill veterans. This makes me feel warm all over. Next time you are out shopping for a warm cape, boots, or anything you may need use a credit card linked to the DAV Spare Change program and help disabled veterans who are in need! You can even use it for a photoshoot like me at Stephanie Williams Portraits and have your “spare change” donated to veterans in need. Anyone can participate! Just three easy steps: 1. ENROLL. Enroll in the program online. Link a credit or debit card you use for daily purchases. 2. SHOP. Use your card for everyday purchases and special occasions - In other words, spend like you normally would. 3. HELP VETERANS. Every purchase made on your card will automatically round up to the nearest dollar and your spare change is donated directly to DAV to give hope to veterans! #DAV #DonatetoDAV Photo Credit: Stephanie Williams Portraits @stephaniewilliamsportraits
We ventured this week to a Storybook Cottage in the North Georgia Mountains at an 1840’s Southern Estate. We have found so much to do and see in the Rome area of @ExploreGeorgia. Here at the 3,000 acre @BarnsleyResort located in the Blue Ridge Mountain we are treated to true southern hospitality and the remarkable 19th century Manor House Ruins and gardens. On site are some delicious foodie worthy dining spots such as the 19th century farmhouse restaurant the Rice House! This super dog friendly resort offers plenty of activities so no one gets bored. Check out their Fabio golf course, horseback riding, bicycles, canoes, fly fishing lessons and warm fire pits with complimentary s’mores daily. Connecting with nature is easy here. We have already hiked every trail at the resort including the fitness trail. We are also exploring the local city of Rome and found the new Newby Vineyard wine tasting room and winery. I now have a new favorite wine! Don’t miss Newby Vineyards. Afterwards we took the pups to Harvest Moon Cafe for dinner that included Fried Green Tomatoes topped with jalapeno peppers. While at Barnsley Resort I also was able to forward my wellness journey. In addition to all the exercise I got from hiking over 10 miles in 2 days this week, I visited their luxury spa. Both my Firm & Lift Facial and Swedish Massage were some of the best I have experienced this year. The spa therapists at the Barnsley Resort Spa are extremely talented and skilled. I believe the best I have felt in a long time was after my Forest Yoga Class. Since it was a bit chilly that morning we opted to have the class in the lovely town hall. I was blown away at how lovely Town Hall is inside. We now know all that North Georgia has to offer and are already planning our next trip to this remarkable area. Next time we are bringing the entire family! Stay tuned for more about our journey to Georgia! Are you ready for a road trip to Georgia? #exploregeorgia #barnsleyresort

Make sure to get those really tough ones. 3. A new leash - ours recently broke so it is always a good idea to have backups. 4. A new color. We recently got some really cute pinks ones with our dogs names stitched on them. 5. A Walk - even if just around the neighborhood it may be the highlight of their day 6. TIME with YOU! Take them with you whenever you can or just snuggle on the couch. Remember your pets are a huge part of your life..but YOU are their entire life.

We all have those cars that seem to become a part of our family. Cars that stay with us way past the time that they are getting daily use. Or possibly you have a very loved car and you have finally decided it is time to upgrade for your daily driving. Let @davhq come to your rescue and let this be the time to support a veteran in a very real way. Help the brave men and women who served by donating any car, truck, RV or boat to DAV and you could qualify for a tax deduction at the same time. This is the perfect moment to give back to those that have protected our great land of the United States of America. The DAV Car Donation Program is for YOU! Donating is not only a super great way to get rid of an old or extra vehicle crowding your parking space or driveway at your home, but also a way to avoid the huge cost and hassle of finally repairing or seriously selling a car you no longer need or want. Give that car a new life and a very special new home with the DAV Car Donation Program. I am so enthusiastic for vehicles and how they help us in our daily lives that I am definitely looking into donating my vehicle when the time comes for my next ride. I always pride myself in supporting veteran causes. This is especially important during the holidays. My father is a veteran. Your donation to DAV vehicle donation program is a great resource that will make a huge difference in supporting an important mission. The DAV mission provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families. They help more than one million veterans in a positive, life-changing way each and every year. We should all be part of something this good. #DAV #DonatetoDAV #cars #automobiles #donate #vets #veterans #automobiles #sponsored
Wow! I love this historic home and art gallery known as the Pink House in Charleston. It is one of the oldest buildings in South Carolina. The house was built of pinkish Bermuda stone around 1694 and is located in the city’s French Quarter. #sponsored As a travel writer and photographer, I am usually traveling the world seeking out amazing locations to snap as many photos as possible! This week, I discovered a perfect way to still explore world famous sights just closer to home. In my own state, I took a @toursbylocals tour, while in Charleston! Our local guide Kathryn is a true local and we were super excited about our tour with her. She not only showed us the iconic destinations of Charleston, but also the hidden gems. She is truly in love with this city and enthusiastic about sharing the history of the Holy City! Discover Charleston’s charm and grace on your own private tour with Tours by Locals!
