A Nantucket Guide
Ok, I'll admit that I might have a small obsession with Nantucket. She's a lovely little island off the coast of Massachusetts that has a big presence. (Or maybe it's just me.)True to her seasonal nature, the summer months are packed with locals, summer families and visitors strolling, shopping, and dining in downtown. From fudge at Aunt Leah's Fudge to resting your head at The Nantucket Hotel, Nantucket is a place for simple pleasures.I want to share my favorite places on Nantucket with you so you can enjoy everything I love about the island.
Where to eat: Nautilus
To say that I stalk both Nautilus restaurants is an understatement. I was first introduced to Nautilus on my favorite little island off the coast of Massachusetts (Nantucket). On island, they don't regularly take reservations in advance so it's a commitment to get in. But oh-so-worth-it. When I heard they were opening a Boston outpost, like a good stalker, I was there on opening night.

Portland, Maine is a food heaven. I've compiled my favorite spots into my Portland, Maine City Guide. This City Guide aims to evolve with Portland's food and shopping scene. I will continue to keep this updated and you can find it under my City Guides section.
1 Hotel Miami Beach
Nantucket. My Happy Place.
Nantucket is a very special place for me. Maybe it's because of the quaint small-town feel? Maybe it's because I always go there with my favorite people and have the best time? Whatever it is, I love Nantucket. It is my happy place.

A girls getaway to Ocean Edge
To celebrate one of the last weekend's of summer, I decided to get away from Boston and head to the Cape for a girls getaway. Ocean Edge has been on my list for a while, and I was excited to stay with them to get a little R&R. From restaurants to the beach, Ocean Edge has everything on the property so I also knew that I wouldn't have to leave the grounds for the whole weekend. And if I can avoid driving, I'm a happy girl. Where do I start with The Vedema? First of all, it is one of the most beautiful resorts I've ever had the privilege of staying at. Not only am I smitten with the polka dot walls, but there is a 400-year old wine cellar at the hotel - and if you know anything about me, you know wine is the key to my heart.
Where to stay: The Vedema in Santorini, Greece
For the tail end of my trip on Santorini, I stayed at the Vedema hotel, a property by my favorite, the Luxury Collection. Located in the medieval village of Megalohori, the Vedema is a sprawling resort that maintains the charm of the village and the classic Cycladic style architecture. Where do I start with The Vedema?

Where to eat: Mystique in Santorini, Greece
For the second half of my stay in Santorini, I moved to a hotel closer to Thera and Οία. Before I checked in at my next hotel, I made plans to have lunch at Mystique, The Luxury Collection's Οία property. Mystique is exactly what you think of when you imagine a Santorini hotel. The various pockets of Mystique's property are nestled among the cliffs of Οία's coast with views of the bluest ocean as far as the eye can see. I settled in at the pool restaurant to try their menu of fresh seafood, fruity cocktails, and decadent desserts.
