Breaks from blogging happen from time to time, some on purpose and some simply due to being busy enjoying life. :) Regardless of all the fun and wonderful things going on I must admit I do miss you readers and writing when I've taken a few days away. With that being said, I began but didn't finish sharing my list of romantic getaways.. it's time to get back on topic and dive into a few more turquoise waters. This five star hotel located on pristine private beachfront property in St Johns, Antigua is a definite stop on our road to romance. A portion of this gorgeous Caribbean escape is nestled into the soft hillside of Antigua offering spectacular views of the water. Rooms choices include ocean front suites and ocean view villas (from above). Both rooms suggest the warmth of the tropics and the relaxation of a quiet and private vacation retreat. The perfectly placed ocean view villas allow for prime views of the tranquil water below and exceptional privacy each with their very own pool. Needless to say, if you're looking for some seriously relaxing one on one time by the water consider this romantic spot. Stick around, two more stops on our tropical travels and we're hitting the Hamptons to see a drop dead gorgeous home on the water, that's all this week on M+P! Happy Tuesday loves!

Isle de France
St. Barts

Let's jet from the Pacific all the way over to the Atlantic for this next romantic spot. If you're looking to travel from the east coast but don't have time to make it out to Hawaii this next stop could be decent and by decent I mean quite wonderful alternative. St. Barts is a relaxing and elegant destination filled with plenty of romance. Charming, cozy, and serene are the strong points of the boutique hotel Isle De France. This privately owned hotel of only 33 rooms is a perfect choice for sheer luxury and privacy. Located on a long stretch of open white sandy beach and looking out over breathtaking views this hotel offers more than just impeccable service. If your main goal is to lounge, soak in some rays, and take it the ocean breeze St. Barts is a great destination. Not offering as much in the way of activities as our first resort in Hawaii, but the beauty and setting of this hotel will keep you from wanting to leave. We're well on our way to finding romance by the ocean and have a few more places to go! Sit tight, another fabulous destination awaits tomorrow....

St. Regis. Princeville
Kauai, Hawaii

Valentines may be over but the romance must go on! The rest of this week's posts will be dedicated to my favorite romantic tropical getaways. Get ready for some seriously steamy places to escape to with your love.
First up on the list is the St. Regis Princeville on Kauai, Hawaii. Kauai, like all of the Hawaiian islands offers pristine ocean views, gorgeous garden habitat, and endless outdoor adventures. For active couples this dreamy island will serve as a relaxing retreat and an adventurous getaway. Outdoor activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, incredible hiking with trails to waterfalls with views that will blow your mind, golf, windsurfing, fishing, and horseback riding. Amazing outdoor activities aside, at this resort you will certainly be drawn to simply lie on the beach or at the pool and enjoy scenery so pretty it's no wonder it has shown up in a long list of TV shows and movies. Regardless of how you choose to spend your days, the luxurious St. Regis is sure to meet all your romantic requirements! Tell me you wouldn't trade yesterdays chocolates and flowers for a trip to a heavenly oasis like this... that's what I thought. The traveling continues tomorrow as we head to the next romantic escape be sure to stick around!

Don't give me red roses, I don't do predictable. Give me red ranunculus and my favorite man my spectacularly handsome and marvelously romantic husband on my favorite beach in Hawaii and I'm in heaven. Everyday in paradise with my love is certainly enough to satisfy but if there must be flowers involved just leave me grinning at my ravishing red ranunculus.

Happy Valentines Day my loves :)

Up this week in honor of Valentines I'll be sharing my favorite romantic tropical getaways...stay tuned!

Can you resist them? - I can't.

Goodbye black and hello color. Now that spring is upon us it's only right to turn your attention to some soles on the rise. These pairs are just the kind of statement that will turn your winter frown upside down. Go ahead, try them on for size... Neimans is sure to see my eyes perusing the aisles this week. As my husband will tell you, I always say 'Every good look has a great pair of shoes grounding it'. It's simply the truth.
