Be sure to hop over to the new website too!  One of the best features of the new site is the map on the benefits page.  You can select various destinations in the world and learn about some of my favorite hotels.  It was hard to narrow it down to these hotels, so these will be rotating often as I continue to discover the best new spots!

Thank you so much for the support and encouragement over the last 5 years.  It has truly been an honor to work with such incredible couples, and to plan what is quite possibly the most memorable trip of their lives.  Looking forward to the adventures the next 5 years will bring!

Bon Voyage!

Snow Bunny

Styled Travels |

Not every couple’s dream honeymoon is somewhere tropical. Some love to head over to the mountains and hit the slopes. The fabulous new The Chedi in Andermatt, Switzerland provides just that with its amazing skiing areas of  Nätschen and Sedrun. It would make an incredible honeymoon destination for those snow loving couples, but make sure you pack the essentials! Get inspiration here and don’t forget to grab that delicious cup of hot cocoa to warm up afterwards!

Amalfi Coast

Real Honeymoon |

Emily and Dane recently celebrated their honeymoon on the beautiful Almafi Coast and instead of me telling you about how it was, Emily wrote about the trip herself! Read about her favorite moments of gelato, getting lost, and an unforgettable romantic dinner.
 
Emily: 
“As die-hard Michiganders, our vacations rarely include a trip out of state, let alone a luxurious once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon on the beautiful Amalfi Coast of Italy. And so, we soaked up every moment of bliss, from the posh hotels and breathtaking views to the unending cups of cappuccino and fresh seafood. When I think of our most perfect honeymoon, the moments that come to mind include departing the JK Place Hotel of Capri on a GEM car, waving back as the entire staff gives us a heartfelt send-off and our arrival to Positano, greeted by a luggage courier who didn’t know quite enough English (nor did we know enough Italian) to instruct us to the hotel. With that, we started with a few scoops of gelato, and set out to find Le Sirenuse; which we did, but not without a few misguided turns and a lot of laughs.”

“We loved our chic and sophisticated accommodations at Palazzo Avino, which was only a few steps away from the quaint village center. Each afternoon we would visit the grocer for a small package of fresh salami and cheese to take with us back to our room for an afternoon snack before dinner. Finding ourselves without any euros one day, that kind grocer even sent us off with our goods and simply asked that we come back the next day with payment! I didn’t know that kind of doing business even existed anymore! But it does in Ravello, like something out of a favorite novel or movie. Speaking of something out of a movie, our last evening included a romantic dinner at Villa Maria’s and our own private concert back at Palazzo Avino. As the pianist sang “Have I Told You Lately” and we danced, I couldn’t help but shed a tear thinking of just how blessed Dane and I have been to have found each other, and to have started our marriage in the most perfect fashion, on the Amalfi Coast. Ok, I was a little sad to be going home the next day too ;)”

Power Adapters

Travel 101 |

One of the most frustrating parts of traveling has to be that moment when you finally get to your (amazing) hotel room and notice that the electrical plugs are different…and you’re not prepared!  Even if you’re planning on “unplugging” while on your honeymoon, if you want to use your phone as a camera or you want to blow dry your hair, you might be caught in a sticky situation.

So instead of trying to figure out what you need for which country and investing in multiple, my best advice to you in to get an all-in-one universal travel adapter!  One of my favorites is the Ansmann version that can easily be found online or even cheaper via Amazon.  These adapters can be used in over 150 countries and is one of the safest in the world.  No matter where you go this little guy will be your best friend!

Happy travels!

Bon Voyage!
