Don’t burn – “trust the Bum”. I love Sun Bum’s sun protections products. Here’s why.
It’s officially Day 1 of snow and we’ve just started the fireplace… and our third movie since last night. This calls for a hot cocktail! Warm Peppermint Patty This thing literally tastes like a melted York Peppermint Patty. Rich, tasty, and boozy. Cheers to all of that, y’all. The Necessities: 8 ounces warm almond milk […]
Bailey’s has released a vegan almond milk liqueur and with the impending snowmaggedon coming for Raleigh, I decided it was a great option for experimenting with to come up with a cocktail that I’m going to enjoy from the comfort of the couch. I blended a shot of Ketel One vodka, a shot and a […]
Today’s breakfast/lunch (truly brunch without the boozy drinks) combo I whipped up in my small but mighty kitchen here in Antibes inspired this post. I used leftover bread from last night’s dinner as the base; layered in leftover sauteed Brussels sprouts, a few slices of mozzarella cheese, and frozen spinach; and topped with four eggs […]
Raleigh, be warned. As much as I miss you, a girl could really get used to waking up near the water. The views on my last few days of runs and walks in Antibes have been too good not to share. These pictures are from the beachfront in Antibes, Fort Carre, and Port Vauban.

A week ago Sunday, Johnnie Bud and I headed to Cannes with GLM classmates Daniel, Sarah, and Stephanie. Taking the SNCF train for $12 round-trip, it was about a 30 minute ride (with stops included) and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was fairly quiet in Cannes on the day we went, missing […]
Can I take just a second to brag on my wonderful manfriend who accompanied me over the pond for the first week to help me get adjusted to life here in Europe – and to enjoy a mini-vacation, too? While I was joining 41 other NC State GLM students here in the south of France, […]
A few life updates: I’ve migrated this blog over from Blogger – so welcome back if you’re a returning visitor and thanks for tuning in if you’re a first timer! I’m currently in my second semester of the NC State master’s degree in Global Luxury Management which means… I’m living in the south of France […]
