It’s all fine and dandy to dine at fabulous restaurants, taking in the full experience of ambiance, impeccable service and food hand crafted by a Le Cordon Bleu certified Chef but as much as I would love to do that everyday, my pockets are screaming a resounding “Nooooo!!!”. I have cultivated a list of some…

Easy Broiled Lobster Tails

My Favorite Face Essentials

As this is officially my first makeup post, I feel the need to say. I am not a makeup artist. I’m learning new things everyday. I’m just a mom who barely has time to slap on some lipstick and move. Thankfully my lashes are done and that’s about the closest to volume I get. Outside…

Cliff Notes

I was on the edge of a cliff. NO, Seriously. I WAS RIGHT ON THE EDGE. On the water’s edge. On a beautiful table with this absolutely amazing view. Set in crystal clear waters, purposely lit to reveal schools of tarpon swimming in the tranquil bay, anticipating their customary evening feeding. And I was there. On a…

tap.. tap.. Tapas
