|Whose got tickets? This girl!|
I remember when I was a kid, and first learned of the mystical land called "Medieval Times". A place where history played out right in front of your eyes, and knights fought for the hand of a fair maiden, all while dinner was served. On top of that you had to eat with your hands!
When I planned a "Family Escape" to Orlando this summer, I was so excited to learn that my childhood fantasy yet thrived in the humid climes of Central FL. Here's our photo journey through that memorable experience, as I saw it through my own little ones eyes.

I've bragged about Image Skincare's benefits for years. However given this sunny season where we all want to be outdoors soaking up the sun I thought it would timely to name four of my favorite Summer Skin Savers! These items are nothing short of miraculous and stand out among their peers. If you are aiming to keep that youthful glow while everyone else is turning a bright shade of raspberry, I fully endorse the products below.

|Sunrise at Sea|
We've been back from our family cruise for a week now and let's just say we are almost fully recovered. If you follow me on social media you may have read that we suffered a bit of a blow on this trip with an unexpected health crisis hitting us on the third day. It was unfortunate, especially because this was a "Big" family cruise with my whole family, my parents, and six siblings. This was to be our giant family Christmas present. There couldn't have been worse timing for illness to hit, however I will say it could have been much much worse. We are grateful for the blessings we had, and the great memories we captured before we were sequestered to our cabin.
Here is a little photo recap of all the fun parts;)

|Nail Wraps - Why I Love Them|
Confession. I am the worst at keeping up with my nails. Maybe it's my background as a spa professional and the need to always have clean nails, maybe it's my experience as a model and the need to always have natural toned nails, or maybe it's the fact that I'm a busy mom on the go and manicures just simply don't last with the hands on work I do. Whatever the case may be, it's certainly a weakness. I may know how to dress, do my hair, and makeup and be ready for "the scene" but sadly my nails tell their own tale. So when I heard about a new solution for fashionable nails that was affordable, trendy, and lasts way longer than a manicure, I had to check it out for myself and report back to you with my "Trend Report".

|Amy at Pure Barre Jacksonvilld Beach|
Long, lean, graceful figures stretch and lengthen their elegant limbs, flowing through delicate movements to the soft rhythmic melodies of dance.
This is what I expected from the trendy Pure Barre methodology. What I experienced, was a much more fierce work out than I could have imagined. Let me explain what surprised me most about Pure Barre Jacksonville Beach, FL.

|Classic Italian with a Family Friendly Feel|
I recently featured 5 Ways to Enjoy Reunion Resort on the blog as part of our "Family Escape" series. Their restaurant Forte Grille arose as a shining star during our stay as we dined together as a family and experienced some of the best the Resort had to offer. Hearty, classic Italian dishes were served with an elegant finesse creating a beautiful contrast that still has my mouth watering. The iconic dishes kept on impressing as the shadows grew longer, leaving us all entertained, and appetites satiated. This being our first "family" dining review, we were eager to explore the menu, from adult to kids selections. What we tasted left us craving more...

Now I'm back after a scintillating photo shoot (special thanks to my 3 day juice cleanse) giving you the details of my new summer favs. These sophisticated pieces make a statement on the coast, or at the pool. Dress up or dress down luxurious maxi's, and sexy minis. Lisa's designs are a perfect compliment to the AWT style, fitting in at the most fabulous destinations while keeping you on trend and in the spotlight.
