This past weekend I took a little stay cation at Normandy Farms in Blue Bell, PA. It was so nice to tuck away from the cold snowy weather and curl up by the fire after stuffing my face at The Farmer’s Daughter restaurant. Pulling up to the hotel you would never realize how old it actually is! The hotel is rich in history as it dates back to 1730 and was once a gentleman's estate and largest barn in the United States. The farm was extremely successful and became famous for pioneering new agricultural and farming techniques. It’s now a popular place for weddings, corporate events, and blissful getaway’s! Not to mention their award winning executive pastry chef is one of the best in the world. Anyone who know’s me know’s I’m a huge sweets person, so I was in heaven! Everything is farm to table, locally sourced, and the presentation doesn’t disappoint. It was so nice to just getaway and feel at such peace while at Normandy Farms! I can’t wait to come back when the weather warms up, take a dip in the pool, and taste more from their seasonal menu!
NYFW Day 1
Day one started with the Nana Judy show. This was a highly anticipated show for me! I've been getting so much inspiration from Australia recently, so to see the Melbourne founded streetwear brand come to NYFW was incredibly exciting. Not to mention Winnie Harlow (a Victoria Secret model) walked the Nana Judy runway. Oh and did I mention there was an actual Dalmatian that walked the runway too? Yea Nana Judy's collaboration with Disney's 101 Dalmatians was presented in the September 6th show at Spring Studios.

This season I had the pleasure of working with designer Lanyu and her collaboration with makeup brand Eunarz. More on that K beauty brand later! Lanyu has a beautiful mix of traditional Chinese artisanship and modern design. Her designs are breath taking season after season. Also this season I was happy to see Matthew Adams Dolan & Jeremey Scott what an experience each of their shows are. Jeremey Scott's show is not only a fashion show but feels more like a broadway production!

Every time I think of Florida I think of Disney World, but after our trip to Kissimmee FL I now understand the why it is the vacation home capital of the world! We stayed at the beautiful Reunion Resort . The resort itself has so much to offer we could have spent the entire week just there! But we opted for some adventure from the moment we landed in Florida.
Our first stop was the famous Fun Spot America! We raced go carts, played arcade games, and Zach took the plunge of a life time! Watch him ride the worlds tallest sky coaster!
After a day of traveling and fun we headed to dinner at our resorts rooftop restaurant Eleven. The food was amazing, and so was the view!
After a night of great food, wine, and a hot bubble bath we woke up refreshed and ready for another adventurous day. So naturally that means we needed to see some gators, so we headed to Gatorland! Gatorland is home to some of the largest and oldest gators in the world! Literally never thought I would be so interested in gators but getting up close and personal with them gave me a new perspective!
Each day in Kissimmee was literally a non stop adventure! We shopped at the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, we explored & dined at Disney springs, we zip-lined for the first time at Forever Florida, drank wine & ate a ton of cheese at Island Grove Winery, we even got a pro golf lesson from former pro golfer Scott Downing at Celebrations golf club. Zach and I have never had that much fun packed into just five days! We wouldn't have been able to even think of doing half of the activities we did if it wasn't for Experience Kissimmee. They were the best Florida guide, filling everyday with something so fun, so entertaining, and so memorable. I will never plan another trip to Kissimmee without the help from Experience Kissimmee.
I’ve always loved staying in a hotel in NYC ever since I was a little girl. I was obsessed with the movie Eloise at the plaza, so I would pretend each time I went to a hotel, that I lived there! Although growing up having dance competitions in the city, staying at different hotels all the time really made me appreciate a good hotel from a bad one. Omni Berkshire was definitely a good one! It's luxurious, sophisticated, and homie vibes made it the perfect place to call home for the week of NYFW. Located in the perfect spot of midtown NYC, near plenty of great shopping, and eateries.
Omni Berkshire has locations all around the world, so becoming an Omni member is more then worth it! Receive so many opportunities to upgrade your trips, and earn free nights! I can't wait to stay with the Omni Berkshire family again soon!
