A couple summers ago, I had the adventure of a lifetime while backpacking Europe. I traveled throughout the beautiful country of France and was enamored by it all! Nestled in between the mountains and the Mediterranean is a sleepy seaside town called Menton. It’s one of my absolute favorite spots on the French Riviera and has even been nicknamed, The Pearl of France.” It’s a beloved hidden gem that tourists often miss out on. A cluster of pastel homes cascade the hillside overlooking the quaint beaches. A little library is even situated on the beach which I thought was a super clever idea. I know if I was local there I would totally love sunbathing with a good book in hand! Menton also has sunny weather year-round so it’s an ideal gateway for any season. The relaxed atmosphere also makes time stand still and you feel like you are in a daydream of some sort. I loved my quick mini trip to Menton and can’t wait to come back here one day to explore more of this charming village! 🙂 ~b

As the weather continues to plummet into the low 30’s on the East Coast, my mind can’t help but yearn for the warm, inviting, West Coast sun rays. Last year in early October, I took a mini getaway to one of Oregon’s classic seaside town, Cannon Beach. I have always loved the beach, there’s just something about the sea air that invigorates my soul with tranquility. Cannon Beach was a wide sun-kissed stretch of sand with rocky shores. Charming, quaint, and picturesque – it easily became one favorite destination of 2017! While I wish I could be whisked away and hop on the next flight there – that’s just not realistic or feasible. But, I can rejoice in the memories by posting a few of my favorite pics from my trip. 🙂 Hope you enjoy them! Where are you hoping to jet set to next? ~b
