Beach staycations are my absolute favorite, it's one of the perks of living in South Florida. I recently did a weekend staycation at ocean-front resort, Pelican Grand Beach Resort, in Fort Lauderdale Beach. Located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Beach, the resort sits right beside the sparkling turquoise Atlantic Ocean with fabulous balcony room views. 

With a spa, ocean front dining, and the entire resort right on a beautiful beach, what more can you ask for? Waking up to a beautiful sunrise is one of my favorite things in life, and seeing the golden sunrises in the mornings was my favorite part of the stay. Just pure heaven. As always, Louie and I loved our beach walks on the sand against the soft ocean breeze. I loved my suite, the room was apartment-sized and modern boho. The resort's restaurant, OCEAN2000, has great food and outdoor dining, and is open to the public as well. We loved our staycation and recommend to everyone looking to visit the area!

I love Austin

In February I visited Austin, the capital of Texas, for the very first time, and I loved it! I stayed in Downtown Austin at Hotel Zaza Austin. Austin is beautiful and surrounded by three magnificent lakes. Austin is known for its eclectic live-music scene centered around country, blues and rock. I arrived late at night on a Friday, and as soon as I opened my balcony door to the beautiful night skyline from my high rise suite, I was hit with crips air and a mixture of different sounds. Music coming from all venues down below, it was a very cool sound. It actually reminded me of Nashville a little bit, as far as the city being full of live rock music, it was a very cool experience that I was not expecting.

Austin was a little chilly in February, especially at night, but I didn't mind at all, I loved the city vibes. I loved the hotel, it was very artsy, and beautiful, with a spa, and several restaurants. Not to mention a stunning rooftop pool overlooking the city. My morning walks with Louie were beautiful, and I even got to eat brunch poolside when it warmed up. I highly recommend (to anyone in the area), to have dinner or drinks at the hotel's rooftop indoor/outdoor restaurant, Group Therapy. It's a gorgeous modern restaurant with excellent American cuisine. 

Being in Austin for about a week, I ventured out of the city, just ten minutes across the bridge, and found a really cute brunch spot called 1417 French. The outdoor patio is a great experience, and I highly recommend going here if you choose to venture out from the city. Just north of Downtown, I explored a very cute outdoor shopping mall, called The Domain. The Domain hosts a ton of restaurants, and every store you could ever imagine including, Neiman Marcus, Louis Vuitton, and Zara just to name a few.  

 Another place I absolutely recommend to anyone visiting Austin is having lunch at, Nido at The Loren Hotel. Nido is a modern American restaurant that sits on the beautiful rooftop of The Loren Hotel, with stunning views of Lady Bird Lake. The photos below don't even do it justice, it's magical.  I can't wait to go back to Austin, because this is a city that you just keep going back to. There's so many things I still have to do. Until next time!
