Travel Thursday – Travel Bliss in Charleston, SC!

Triple B was on the scene in Charleston!

Back in February, the hubby and I headed below the Mason Dixon line for some R&R. We initially chose Charleston, South Carolina because JetBlue was having a sale. We figured it would be a nice getaway for my birthday, a quick escape from NYC’s harsh winter and a chance to experience a new city together. Both of our expectations were pretty low. Man, were we pleasantly surprised! [Read more...]

Marriage Matters Monday – The Italian Honeymoon That Never Happened

Mr. TK & I chillaxin' in Aruba three months after getting engaged

“Man can plan but God can hinder.”

Growing up, I listened to my North Carolina-born mom and grandmother recite the above sentence countless times and it typically left me perplexed. Now as a married, 30-something year-old woman I get it. In fact, my new marriage and now postponed honeymoon are prime examples of this saying.

Before I get into the who, what and why of my honeymoon being postponed, let me explain a few things: I work in an industry where frontin’ is embraced. I thought long and hard about whether or not I wanted to post this because I was nervous about oversharing and exposing too much of me and the hubby’s business to the world wide web. But upon careful consideration, I concluded (after running it by him) that I should because if I experienced it, someone else probably has, too. So here goes… [Read more...]

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – 4 Tips for Planning an Epic Bachelor (or Bachelorette) Trip


We have all heard stories of how young girls start planning their wedding before their first heart break. When some of these  girls turn into young women, the mental wedding planning kicks into a higher gear. Men have a perception of how much women look forward to planning and being the center of attention at a wedding. Well, our version of this is THE BACHELOR PARTY. One of the coolest things about a bachelor party is most guys aren’t limited to just one. Wait, wait, wait. What I mean is – not only do we get to participate in our own bachelor party, but we also partake in the bachelor parties of our buddies. The verbatim reaction of one of my closest friends when I shared I was engaged was “Word? Where are we going for the bachelor’s trip?” At least 5-minutes passed before I was congratulated.

Today I will share with you 4 keys to planning an epic bachelor party. [Read more...]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week: The Conrad Hotel

The Conrad Hotel, NYC

Swanky hotels with chic lobbys and cool rooftops practically populate NYC like pigeons. I admittedly get jaded about sleek hotels in the Big Apple (lots of fashion and beauty press events take place in them) but when I recently accepted a lunch invitation at The Conrad Hotel in the city’s financial district, I knew I had to share this find with y’all. I was wowed from beginning to end! [Read more...]

The Road to Mrs. – The Best Bachelorette Trip That Never Happened

Las Vegas is one of my favorite playgrounds! I’ve been several times with multiple groups of friends, and during every visit I’ve had a blast. I would like to think the common denominator was me.

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week: The Benefits of a Minimoon

Mr. TK and me during our minimoon in Washington, DC!

Shortly after Mr. TK proposed, we made the decision to go someplace exotic (by our standards anyway) for our honeymoon. We both enjoy traveling so we wanted to do it up big. We decided on Italy, specifically southern Italy along the Amalfi Coast and Capri. However the reality was that as we got closer to our Charlotte, NC wedding celebration, we had to make the challenging decision to postpone our honeymoon until this year. Our consolation? A minimoon!
