This month, I’m back to talk you about Scottsdale Resort & Conference Center which is rebranding itself to the Scottsdale Resort next month. You can read my full review on Swa-Rai.com but on this post, I want to talk about Amansala Spa located on the resort. Everyone knows that Danyelle and I love a good spa! After all of that running around in Arizona, we were...

My Times Square Style: Bright Lights Big City Fashion

Over the course of the last eight months, I have visited The Big Apple three times with no signs of stopping. During each visit, I’ve stayed near Times Square in order to soak in the sights and sounds and wonderfulness of it all. Of course I am showing my tourist colors since Times Square isn’t a place city dwellers and locals like to inhabit. But, I don’t mind looking a little green. I can never pass up the chance to spend some time in one of the busiest...

Looking for an Adventure? Try the Ford Transit Connect Wagon

I’m going to start this post off by saying the Ford Transit Connect Wagon is not your typical vehicle. It’s probably something I wouldn’t have given 2 thoughts about, that is until I got a chance to drive it. Upon it’s arrival, I realized this was a pretty big vehicle, it left me wondering how it would do on the road. I’m a get up and go kind of girl but too my surprise the Transit Connect felt like driving a car. It looks like a minivan but in...

Beauty and the Beast Be Our Guest Restaurant at The Magic Kingdom

“Tale that’s old as time…” During our most recent trip to Walt Disney World and The Magic Kingdom, we were finally able to secure dinner reservations at Be Our Guest Restaurant located in Beast’s Castle. Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of the newer sit-down style dining options at Walt Disney World, and is also one of their most popular. It remains one of the hardest places to get reservations for (just behind Cinderella’s Castle), and...

Three Reasons You Will Love the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Back in May, Danyelle and I headed to Miami for a little R & R and fun in the sun. I hadn’t been to Miami in a few years so I thought it would be fun to explore South Beach and see what was new since I last visited. Usually when I visit Miami I don’t drive because I find it to be a hassle but this time around I decided if we really wanted to explore we would need a car.  As soon as I arrived in Miami, my friends at Mitsubishi had the Mitsubishi Outlander...

Family Time at Eckert’s Farm in Belleville

I come from a small family, and we don’t get an opportunity to see one another as much as we’d like. Add to that my 21 year old son now lives in Los Angeles, it is always a joyous occasion when he comes to visit. We wanted to do something extra special to celebrate him coming home for a week and also get my grandmother out of the house and away from St. Louis for awhile. My Aunt organized a family caravan to Eckert’s Farm in Belleville, Illinois, about a...
