Fall Festivities

Fall is in full swing in New York and I’ve been loving the cooler weather. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the outdoors and embracing all fall time activities. I’m looking forward to a Hudson Valley wine tour with friends, hand-picking our jack-o- lantern, and the anticipation of cozy evenings by the fireplace.

Weekend Getaway: Fairfield, CT

A few weeks ago, my friend and I decided to escape nyc for the weekend. We wanted a quick, hassle free getaway so we booked a last minute stay in Fairfield CT. We  try to get away at least once a year together for a mini girls trip and Connecticut was the perfect escape. With its lovely beaches, great restaurants and quaint vibe, we felt like we were way farther from ny than we actually were.

Where we stayed: We love the The Inn at Fairfield Beach– a cute, simple hotel right on the water but since we decided to book so last minute, they were sold out. Instead, we stayed at another great spot, The Circle Inn which was walking distance to the beach and had a pool as well.

Where we played: We loved Terrain for a one stop shop for cool shopping followed by cocktails.

Where we ate: We love The Whelk so naturally, we paid a return visit to this local favorite.
