As the “crown jewel” of the Refinery Hotel, Refinery Rooftop Bar has an industrial meets luxury vibe! Situated in the Garment District of New York City, Refinery Rooftop Bar is a definite must when you are in the city!
To start, Sarah and I tried three of their signature cocktails: Perfect Pear (which was my favorite), Mango Basil Margarita, and the Frozen Hurricane. The Frozen Hurricane is their cocktail of the month that benefits a worthy cause. This month, the drink’s proceeds will go to the Developing Minds Foundation.
For lunch, we shared a few items on the menu. We ordered the Butcher’s Meatballs, Fresh Mozzarella Flatbread, Frico Grilled Cheese, Crispy Brussel Sprouts and some Truffle French Fries! Everything was so delicious and tasty! Our favorites were the Brussel Sprouts with sweet chili, fish sauce and the Truffle French Fries!
The atmosphere of this restaurant is not to be missed. You have the perfect view of the Empire State Building as well as the beautiful New York City skyline in general. Refinery Rooftop Bar is the quintessential New York City spot, and I would definitely come back here when I go into the city again!

Located inside the Refinery Hotel, Parker & Quinn is “inherently New York with global appeal.” It has a old school diner type feel, with some modern touches. The vibe definitely gives you a 1900’s New York diner feel, which I loved. The staff at Parker & Quinn were so helpful and attentive! My favorite part of our meal was their P&Q Brunch Boards! We had both their Bloody Board and their Bubbly Board which have the most gorgeous presentation! My favorite of the two was the Bubbly Board, but I highly recommend both if you love Bloody Mary’s or Mimosa’s. These are great drink brunch options when you want to share with friends!
For food, we ordered a little bit of everything! I had the everything bagel with cream cheese, which was simple yet delicious! I also ordered the steel cut oatmeal, which was cooked to perfection! This is always a favorite breakfast option for me, and on the healthier side! And of course, I had to get my usual, a soy latte, to start the day!
Brunch at Parker & Quinn is held on Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 3pm! They have a very extensive brunch menu, so there is something for everyone! I would highly recommend stopping by P&Q whether for just breakfast, brunch or lunch! This is a great spot in the city.

Driving From Miami
Since I am located in Miami, I drove to West Palm Beach, and to be honest, the drive wasn’t so bad. It only took me one hour and 5 minutes to arrive to the hotel. I was expecting the drive to be much longer, but since the hotel is right off of the highway, it was very easy to get to!

This post is definitely long overdue and I did not want to skip it. Even though it is the new year and I went on this trip at the end of 2017, I still wanted to write about our stay in Santorini! Santorini is one of the most sought out travel destinations. Every few weeks, I will see someone on social media posting about their travels to Santorini and I have to say, I understand why it is such a hot spot! It is a beautiful island, with the most picturesque views, and wonderful food!

There is nothing better than having wonderful photos to look back on after you take an amazing trip. So I was extremely excited to work with Flytographer in Mykonos. Flytographer is a great service to use when you are going on a vacation and want to document your trip. What I love most is that you can pick out the photographer based on their profiles, and it is great because they are local’s that live in the areas you are visiting. Flytographer has a great selection of photographers in over 200 cities worldwide.
It’s officially the holiday season! How it is December already, I have no idea. This year FLEW by. But to prepare for your holiday shopping, I wanted to start creating some gift guides for you all. Buying presents can be quite a tedious task, and quite expensive. So that is why I wanted to start of with this guide with gifts under $25! Yes, $25! Super affordable right? Whether for your wife, girlfriend, sister, mom, aunt, or best friend, these items will definitely please your loved one!

Happy shopping everyone!
Next up on my Grecian vacation was the island of Mykonos. I was really looking forward to visiting this island because of all the rave reviews I have heard, and it did not disappoint. Mykonos was my favorite part about our entire trip. From the hotel, to the people, to the town and the food, I was sold! If you are planning a trip to Mykonos, I hope this travel guide helps you in planning your vacation!
First up on my trip to Greece is my travel guide of Athens. Athens is the capital of Greece and is filled with so much history and culture, so I was really looking forward to exploring this city!
