Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Welcome to Ubud! We’re jumping in to the highlights and adventures we loved most while exploring this one-of-a-kind jungle; and while you could easily spend a week - or lifetime - in Ubud, we found that three full days gave us a great grasp of the area and a feeling that we were able to take a good solid scratch at the surface of this jungle-paradise. Now, explore our adventures in Ubud!

Wakefield, Quebec, Canada

Wakefield, Quebec, Canada

If there ever was a hidden gem it is our discovery of Wakefield, Canada: the small, quaint, charming water-front town just 40 minutes north of Ottawa. What started as an almost accidental discovery turned in to one of our best getaways! We discovered the town via Airbnb when searching for unique stays and stumbled upon a boat-house! Little did we know we had stumbled upon a great find for all the little things! Dining, sight-seeing, activities, and more!

Lex's Packing List

Formentera

Hi there! Here we have my packing list for Formentera! Inspired by the small island's crystal clear waters, breathtaking blue skies, and mountainside, my packing list is full of brights and neutrals.

Layers, gemstone wrap bracelets that can be worn as necklaces, and leather sandals are always my staples; and I never travel without my Paavani spritzers. I love our straw bags, this round one is a particular favorite! And our unique kilim flats are always a must-pack. Go in luxury with my favorites.

MADE IN AMERICA

Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel

Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel

On a warm summer-weekend Zach and I ventured to Northern Michigan to treat ourselves to a weekend of luxury at Mackinac Island's Grand Hotel. A wonderful getaway, rich history and tradition radiates within this beautiful destination. Lounge by the pool, explore the gardens, and be sure to take a bike ride around the island...

 

A Look at My Beach Getaway

A Look at My Beach Getaway

First things first, I am going to apologize that our Made in America blog series has been little than that - I've found that I'm writing more and more about my personal findings and self-discoveries than I am small businesses and national gems; so this will (maybe?) be the last of one of my personal-posts, maybe.

Bidding Adieu to 2017

Bidding Adieu to 2017

2017 was a big year for us - we planned our wedding and got married in Tuscany surrounded by fifty of our closest family & friends; we launched our travel blog; we moved our menswear boutique and launched the new lifestyle brand Mick + Kip, as well as Lex & Lynne Bridal; we traveled around the world and explored South Africa for two weeks, quite an adventure for us; and we juggled the ins and outs of every day life - and since May, married life!

Farewell Fall: Woodstock, Vermont

Farewell Fall: Woodstock, Vermont

Our most favorite part of writing this travel blog has been revisiting all of our past travels: writing about our experiences, providing knowledge, and of course tons of photo-taking for inspiration. One of our favorite fall getaways is Woodstock, Vermont; where we found ourselves spending many weekends there recounting our travels, writing notes, and brainstorming new adventures during hikes, coffee-dates, dinners, and late nights by the fireside.

Ode to Autumn

Ode to Autumn

Time has a way of quickly slipping away from us making it tough to really make the most of every single season - especially when there’s an Indian-summer nearly every year and Autumn doesn’t truly kick in until mid-October! Autumn is my favorite season, for many reasons, mainly feeling the cool air arrive and the watching the colors of the leaves change. The leaves slowly disappearing from the trees indicates that the holidays are upon us, and for me this is go-time with work. 
Vermont Cheesemakers Festival

Vermont Cheesemakers Festival

One of Zach's favorite days of the summer season is the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival in Shelburne, Vermont; showcasing Vermont's local farm's products, and mainly my favorite food in the world - cheese.
