Weekend Getaway


This past weekend, my guy and I skipped town and headed down to Virginia for a much needed weekend getaway. I packed my favorite bag (which doubles as the perfect carry-on) with travel essentials and the new PORTER Magazine, which I can't recommend enough. I spent the majority of the trip to and from poring over the pages of the first issue and all of its amazing content. It's the perfect combination of smart editorial pieces, insider input and beautiful photo spreads that I've been craving from fashion & lifestyle magazines for so long.

We lucked out with sun and 70 degree weather on Saturday, and had way too much delicious food (and a few too many Bloody Marys) with good friends, disconnected from the social media world and spent some much needed time on the sunny beach. Short vacations are always bittersweet, but I'm hoping we brought some of the southern sunshine back to Philly with us.

P.S. If you won't be making it to a beach anytime soon, this scent by Bobbi Brown smells just like you're there. Don't hate me for getting hooked. ;)



  1. This past weekend I headed down to my shore house in Cape May. While the weather wasn't exactly 70 degrees it was such a nice getaway! I really hope Philadelphia gets some warm sunshine soon!


    1. Agreed! Keeping my fingers crossed that this weather warms up quickly! P.S. Cape May is one of my favorite shore spots :)
