THE BEST BIRTHDAY IN BELIZE

Happy Friday Friends!

I’ve been wanting to have this post done for quite a while, but there was so much to cover. My amazing husband took me to Belize for my 44th birthday. The understatement is that I had fun. Fun isn’t even a word for this trip. It was more than I ever dreamed, and in my terms it was Magical.

Belize is beautiful. It’s stunning actually. There are many parts where there is a lack of money, but the people there are amazing. They are sweet, kind, generous and more than anything HAPPY! They are happy with their lives. We made friends there in such a short amount of time, but I will be back to see them. The island of Ambergris Caye is magnificent. There is so much to do and we really had the time of our lives.

My coffee views every morning
The view from our condo!

THE RESORT/ GRANDE CARIBE

We stayed in a gorgeous, oceanfront condo at the Grande Caribe Resort that overlooked just about everything. The best part was hanging on our balcony each night ,with a good glass of wine watching the sunsets. I’m a sunset girl, and Belize has the most beautiful sunsets. Out condo was gorgeous and spacious, and the views couldn’t of been any better. I truly believe we had the BEST condo in the whole place. The people that worked there were so generous and sweet. We had our massages half the time on our balcony and then on the beach. They were so accommodating to us. The main way to get around Ambergris Caye is by golf cart. It is so fun. We rented a golf cart the whole week and drove around checking the island out. The resort had multiple pools and our condo had it’s own private one. They had a great rooftop restaurant called Rain. They had the best food with the best views of Ambergris Caye. The best back drops for photos I know. The Best place for breakfast and a good mimosa is Marbucks Coffee House. The owners , once again were delightful. The food was amazing.

YOGA RETREAT

I stayed right down the road from the best ecofriendly Yoga retreat. they held their classes at 9 am and I would drive the golf cart down for the class. It was in a rainforest setting and it was around the ocean. I can’t tell you how beautiful it was. They would hold meditation classes. The owners were so sweet. I have truly missed that place. Yoga is huge in Belize and now I know why there is such a calmness among the people.

SECRETS BEACH

THE TRUCK STOP IN AMBERGRIS CAYE

The Truck Stop was major fun. It is a place right off the road that has multiple stations, bars, games and live music all the time. That is where we met our friend ,Francisco. We truly miss him. It was like we had known him for years. They had the best ice cream and we met many people there. We will definitely be back to see him. We even got his number. LOL The Truck Stop is a major staple in Belize.

SECRETS BEACH IN BELIZE

Secrets Beach is a Must See for anyone traveling to Belize. We took the golf cart there. It was located about 6 miles away. The golf cart rides are so fun. You just meet people on the road. There is a bar and many little Belize artisan shops surrounding the Beach. The Beach has the most aqua blue water. That is an understatement. It was so beautiful. I didn’t want to leave. We hung out in the water all day, sipping the Best drinks. There is plenty of space to lay out, walk, and shop. The Best part for me was just taking in all the Beauty around me. It’s stunning.

One Of Many Great Belize Nights !

SUNSET CRUISE /PARTY BOAT

This was one of the Best things about my trip, if not the BEST. We docked this massive boat with many people. The cruise was 4 hours long. I know you are probably thinking, WHAT? 4 hours… I have to say it was one of the Best 4 hours in my life. They have the music pumping, drinks flowing, and people are up dancing and singing. We met some kind people on that cruise too. The boat ride gets more fun as the night goes on . I guess many people had too many drinks. We stopped and watched the sunset while they served us a great dinner. I will never forget that fun night.

THE VICTORIA HOUSE RESORT

The Victoria House resort is a place I would love to stay the next time I visit Belize. Their spa is amazing. The grounds are that of an old plantation, and they made their hotel look magnificent. The main house is surrounded by these little plantation huts with private pools, and cute boutiques. They are on their own private beach, and its stunning. I will definitely be trying this place out next time. We were suppose to stay there originally, but they were sold out.

I could go on and on about this trip. I have so many amazing photos. Belize is truly an amazing place to visit. I’ve been to so many places, but this is definitely at the top. I will definitely be making another trip back .

Vacation Soon? Enjoy the Atlantis


Hey Ladies!

I love to vacation. I’m sure you already know that and in fact I love to blog about it. I recently just got home from the beautiful atlantis Bahamas . I can’t tell you how much fun that place is and how beautiful it is. The food is amazing, and the service is impeccable. Let me start by saying that not all places in the Caribbean are the same. I’ve been pretty much everywhere, and I definitely have my favorites, and also places I’ll never go back to. I will always love going back to the beautiful Atlantis. I have to say taking my morning run every day was the tops. The beauty that you see, and of course you can’t forget the warmth. Oh how I’m ready for warm weather. The older I get, the more I despise the cold. ( I only love it at Christmas). The morning walks to The Marina Village was amazing, along with the cute boutique shops. The pool side massages are the bomb. My husband and I had to get those as well. I can’t say enough about the amazing restaurants, including the amazing Nobu. If you have ever ate there, the sushi is to die for. We don’t really gamble a whole lot, but we did stop at the Roulette table, and I had to get in some time at the Black jack table. The great thing about the Atlantis is there is something for everyone. We took our kids here when they were younger, and they absolutely loved it. The aquariums are something that I love about this place. You can take your kids to see the marine life right next to your hotel room. If you have kids, this is the place to go. The water parks are great for the kids as well as the lazy river. You will never get bored, I promise you that. They offer the best morning pilates classes as well as yoga on the beach which was amazing. The Marina Village offers the best for evening fun including Carmines, and the Seaside Grille. If you are looking for that next trip, you have to check out the fun this place has to offer.

The Best of New york


I’ve been wanting to do a post for a while now on my recent trip to New York, but wanted to make sure that I had everything in it that I wanted you to know. If you are planning a trip to NYC, then I am so glad you are reading this. This was probably one of the Best trips I’ve taken recently , just for the simple fact I was with my kids. We had an ultimate blast and can’t wait to get back. 

Even though I have been before, it seems each time you go back to the same destination , there is always something new to see , or just new things to do. We took in many sights, museums, ate amazing food, went to great Broadway shows , and I wish I could fit all my amazing photos in to this one post. I just wanted to give you some insight of some great things to do and see if you have a chance to visit. 

I’m going to start with food. Who doesn’t love taking in the great food NYC has to offer. Everywhere you turn, there is food, and it’s good food. We ate at so many amazing places, by I just can’t fit them all in to my post. I have to start out with the amazing STK Steakhouse.  If you ever have a chance to go, you need to. It’s got a great vibrant atmosphere , and the food is divine. It’s a great place to take the family. Rolling into little Italy, we couldn’t make our minds up on where we wanted to eat. Every little place looks adorable. After about 30 minutes, we decided on Cafe Napoli. I’m so glad we did! The wait staff was remarkable, and did I mention they have the best Tortellini Romano? Of course now I’m going to move on to where we stayed. We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria. The hotel was just fabulous, and the service was remarkable. The rooms are spacious, and they have the best restaurants inside , including the Bull and Bear Prime Steakhouse. The breakfast there is amazing . My daughter and I even had afternoon tea at Lachine. They are so accommodating. I had to venture over to TriBeCa one day to take in some shopping and sights. I have to race about the TriBeCa spa of tranquility. This spa was voted one of the best spas around the globe, and I can see why. It was adorable. The staff was wonderful, and their services were amazing. The European facial  and their signature massage was the ultimate. TriBeCa is lovely as well. I can’t cover everything we seen, because we did ALOT! Central Park is always a gorgeous place to visit or take a walk. The day we visited, you couldn’t of asked for a more beautiful scenery. It’s always wonderful to visit this an amazing city, and have the ultimate fun. If you ever have a small weekend or a vacation coming up, NYC is a great get away.
