I hadn’t actually intended to make this into a DIY, but when I saw on Instagram that Anthropologie had a holiday gift wrapping contest, I decided I just had to enter. If you’ve been reading for awhile, you know my obsession for all things Anthropologie. Although I didn’t win (hashtag sad face), I’m still pretty happy with the way my entry turned out, so I thought I’d share.
Something about this time of year makes me want to craft the crap out of everything. But not the hard stuff. Super simple little DIYs like these birch holiday gift tags that I can do while sipping wine and listening to holiday music. Those are the crafts I can get behind.
Ah, November. You’re one of my favorites.
Maybe it’s the chill in the air. Or the warm golden tones of your falling leaves. Or the excitement I feel about getting together with family.
Whatever it is, I’m all about you.
Looking through photos from our trip to the Sugar Beach Viceroy makes me nostalgic. Nostalgic for that first welcome drink. For the crisp whites of the open air lobby. For our Tuk Tuk ride through the rain.
Saint Lucia was the perfect introduction to the Caribbean, and the Sugar Beach Viceroy, the quintessential island hideaway. Located in Soufriere on the west coast of Saint Lucia, this sugar plantation turned resort starts high in the rainforest, snaking its way down to the most beautiful stretch of white sand beach. It has everything you’d expect from a sprawling Caribbean resort, and then some. The best part though? The location. That white sand beach I was talking about? It sits right between those famous Pitons, and it’s breathtaking.
