Jet Set Steph Bermuda

It’s hard to imagine that the photos of Bermuda don’t even do it justice when you see the absolute perfect shades of blues and turquoises and the pristine beaches with a pink hue in person. The natural beauty is magnified by the colorful island culture and friendly people, making Bermuda an idyllic island. Just a quick two hours from NYC, I ventured to Bermuda this August with my best friend – read on for our recommendations for things to do in Bermuda!

“Money Never Sleeps” – Gordon Gekko, Wall Street

The Financial District has so much personal significance. My first ever trip to New York City was November 2001, just two months after the horrific 9/11 attacks.

Review: Away Carry-On Suitcase

Away Suitcase

I first heard about the Away brand earlier this year after numerous jet setters and bloggers raved about the intelligent design and reasonable price of their suitcases. I have always been a Tumi loyalist, but after my bag of 15+ years began to fade, I could not justify spending that amount on a suitcase at the moment. As fate would have it, Away announced a collaboration with West Elm about a month ago (after previous successful ones with Madewell, Pop + Suki and the Minions movie franchise), featuring gorgeous bags in metallic hues. I took it as a sign and purchased the Carry-On bag in brass. After a few trips, check out my review!
