When you find yourself in a magical place, leaving it is hard.

And just like that our little staycation at @lepetit.hotel is coming to an end. Thank you all for following along with us on our stories. Leaving this place will be hard but we will make it our mission to come back soon. Our stay here has left us relaxed and energized and ready to conquer our dreams with hard work and determination. It was just what we needed. Merci Le Petit Hotel.

Our staycation is a success, mainly because of @lepetit.hotel #fortheluckyfew

I’ve stayed in many boutique hotels and as much as I’ve loved my stay at most, there is something about Le Petit Hotel. It’s not just the large studio rooms, the beautiful ocean view or Remy and his wife taking care of our every need. It’s more than that. It’s being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the waves below, the reggae tunes from the iPod dock playing in the background and the general atmosphere of the room. Check out my stories for more on our staycation.

I am beyond excited to be back on my favorite beach in the world for the weekend.
My husband and I decided to go on a little staycation. .

It helps that the island has a Dutch as well as a French side. It feels so completely different here in Grand Case on the “Partie Francais”. First of all, everything is in French 😆 so, that’s a refreshing change. .
We are staying at one of the island’s best kept secrets: @lepetit.hotel
This little gem might be small in size but my goodness do they make up for it in luxury, décor and hospitality. We’ve been here all of 30 minutes and already know that it is going to be very hard to say goodbye once this romantic weekend is over.

Let’s throw it back to those amazing San Juan days. #throwback🔙 .

I am organizing a small group trip for women over 35 to beautiful Puerto Rico for some empowerment, relaxation, shopping and exploring. Check out @thetravelinggirlsclub ‘s Boss Women Retreats. See you in San Juan in November 😉 .

Beach, please!
I never go beaching without my Turkish towel and I was particularly happy I brought it with me to Anguilla recently when I discovered this hidden gem in Sandy Ground. My towel matched perfectly with the turquoise color of the water. .

I think Prime Day is a perfect day to announce that your favorite island girl is now officially an Amazon Affiliate with her very own Amazon Shop. #linkinbio .

Get your own Turkish towel by clicking on the link in my bio to shop for this and other island girl must-haves, all recommended and approved by yours truly. #amazonaffiliate

Enjoying the quiet of Maho Beach. It’s only temporary as both the @mahobeachresort and the @oceanpointresort (seen in the background) are scheduled to reopen at the end of this year. Both hotels are undergoing a major upgrade after #hurricaneirma and the new rooms are just stunning. Check out their pages for the details. I think I’m ready for another staycation in November when these two resorts reopen. Who’s coming with me?

The smile you make when you realize tomorrow’s Monday. One day closer to my next getaway. ✨
My husband and I are going on a staycation in my favorite fishing village of Grand Case, which is currently celebrating France’s win in a big way.
Three nights in the most adorable hotel on the island. I’ll reveal where later this week, so stay tuned. ✨
Grand Case was hit badly by hurricane Irma and a lot of my favorite places on the beach are now just shells or lie in rumble. Yet, Grand Case remains my favorite and to me still is the most beautiful place on earth. In the meantime there is no time to dwell over what has happened. We have some major celebrating to do. Allez les Bleus!!!

Who else is ready to jump into the weekend?
.

The French side of St. Martin is getting ready for an epic weekend. Tomorrow is Bastille Day and on Sunday, France plays Croatia for the coveted World Cup. Should France win, French St. Martin will be celebrating big time and I intend to be there for the party. Allez les Bleus!
I just love this two nations island thing.

So this is what a chameleon feels like?! Blending in at Caribbean Blend, a colorful little restaurant on the Boardwalk in the heart of Philipsburg, with a killer rum punch.
What’s your favorite little local spot in the Caribbean?
