travel announcement // grecian girls’ getaway with @MyGreekVilla

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: 2015 was big, big year. From Napa to Cape Town to the French Alps, we had more Lazy Travelers’ getaways than we’ve ever had before. As two best friends who live an ocean apart, it’s important to us to plan as much time together as we can, and letsbehonest… it never hurts if it’s somewhere new and beautiful. You may remember that we spent a week in a private villa on the Costa Blanca in Spain last August, splitting our time between sunbathing, floating in the pool, and eating all the manchego we could get our hands on. Since many of our reunions take place over… View Post

a perfect day in firenze

If you follow us on Instagram and/or Snapchat, then you know one thing to be true: lazy baby‘s entry into the world may have put our travel days on pause this winter, but we’ve certainly been making up for lost time. After her first trip to Cannes in March, we reset the clock and started counting down to our next adventure: a week-long visit with my parents, featuring a mini hop to Italy for three beautiful days in Tuscany. But while Chianti was our real destination, we couldn’t take these two first-timers to Italy without a quick stint in Florence! Like our last trip to Chianti, we flew into Pisa and picked up a rental… View Post

As we get older — and, we’d like to think, wiser — we’ve learned to prioritize when it comes to travel-planning. Once we’ve settled on a destination, we spend our pre-trip time wisely: finding the perfect hotel (or villa or chalet or château, we’re not picky), picking out a dream destination-specific wardrobe that we probably can’t afford, and figuring out what and where to eat and drink our days away. Us in Paris, not climbing the steps of Sacré-Cœur. This means, though, that we very rarely plan to do anything particularly tourtisty. If we find ourselves standing in front of a monument or walking past an important building? Sure, let’s snap that pic! But going… View Post

le château de la napoule // a photo tour

After our incredible stay at Le Majestic, my body physically rejected leaving — seriously. Somewhere along the way, probably at one of the beachfront restaurants, both the hubs and I contracted food poisoning. This meant I spent the first official day of my 30s cooped up in a hotel room that did not even sort of compare to the one we just left, taking care of an 8-week-old while the hubs spent the day bouncing between meetings… on YACHTS. Listen, I don’t even know who had this one worse, and I’m being serious. Breastfeeding an infant when you can’t keep anything in your stomach is no picnic, but I don’t think you could have paid… View Post

#lazybaby on the go with @LittlePeanutOTG

Like all first-time parents, I spent the week leading up to our first trip with Margot wondering how the hell we were going to function in France without every single thing we’ve gotten used to having on hand for her at home. I’d wake in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, shaking over what we would do without our changing table and nappy bin and bassinet and boppy and THIS SERENITY STAR?! I kid. Mostly. That Serenity Star is awesome. Luckily, Le Majestic made our lives generally easier, but unfortunately, once the hubs’s conference started, we relocated halfway through the week to a hotel that did pretty much the complete opposite. That’s… View Post
