immediately MUTE

In a world where there is so much going on day in and day out, we have to decide where to place our energy. The law of conservation of energy tells us that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be converted from one form of energy to another (or transferred from one person to another).

We have to decide what we will participate in, engage with, entertain, and even listen to. I think I found the answer to this conundrum. The solution is a message to the whole world: immediately MUTE.

West Palm Beach Day 1

Get into this boutique hotel by Marriott. (I will tell you the name after I leave!) The hotel is stunning  and fabulous and that’s really all I need to tell you about Day 1. The pics below speak for themselves!

Shortly after arriving and taking a few work meetings, I grabbed lunch at City Cellar in Rosemary Square. I enjoyed a refreshing cucumber lemonade and pear salad while looking at palm trees swaying in the wind – a great introduction to the city! Rosemary Square is a very nice outdoor shopping mall. Great decor, restaurants, shopping and more. You will definitely want to visit this place. It is also home to Restoration Hardware’s restaurant, which I plan to visit later in the week.

Other than exploring the hotel and having an awesome lunch, it was really a chill night (on purpose!). I spent some time with my BFF (agenda), read a magazine (Sweet July), took a nice long shower (you cherish these moments when you have a toddler) and did a little pampering (skincare).

Here’s to Day 1! Xoxo, Bri Alys


First Post-Covid Flight

I will be talking my first post-COVID and annual solo trip this week to the magical West Palm Beach, FL. Excited!!! When I first visited WPB in 2019 I decided to ditch Miami and make this my new “thing.” But COVID …. 😤

I am ready explore more of this great city and to digest all the newly imposed travel-related nuances before my family vacation later this month. I be blogging daily so be sure to subscribe! I am also planning to try my hand at vlogging for my YouTube Channel. Sooo … let’s see how that goes! 🤗

Each blog/vlog will be a day behind so expect posts Tuesday – Saturday (my travel dates are Monday – Friday). We will be eating, shopping, spa’ing together – and more! Florida here I come!!!

Xoxo, Bri Alys✨

The good life

With vaccine advances related to coronavirus, travel will likely pick up this summer. I already had a slight phobia (called impatience) standing in long lines at the airport. The recent stories of long lines (better known as chaos) don’t make travel any easier of a pill to swallow.

My savior? Elite status. Due to years of loyalty (~15), my Marriott Titanium status is on lock for life (yay upgrades and free food!). After I obtained that, I turned my attention to Delta and it finally paid off. Welcome Platinum status through January 2023! And just in time for the pandemic travel fiasco.

I will not stand in long lines. I will continue to enjoy the comforts and their concierge lounges and I was able to gift my 2-year old son Silver status. Now my attention turns to keeping it. Let the travel planning begin. Happy summer!
