I’ve received tons of questions about the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa where I stayed in Palm Beach, FL for our girls trip! I’ll start by rounding up some of my pictures and outfits from the trip, so scroll down to the bottom of the post for the full review.Pink Off the Shoulder Top | Wedge Sandals | White Jeans | Pink Suitcase | Boater hat | LV Bag | EarringsPink PJ ShirtFlower Print Midi Dress | SandalsPink Bow Sandals | White Lace Top | Bag | TasselShorts | Salty Swimsuit | Sandals | Bag Sold out (similar here | Bracelets | Sunglasses | HatLaura Beverlin Swimsuit | Jaimie Cittadino Swimsuit | My One Piece Swimsuit  Orange Temple Terrace | Hat | Bracelets | Shades | SwimsuitBreeze Ocean Kitchen | Hat | Shorts | Black Off the Shoulder Swimsuit Yellow Salty Swimsuit | Hat White Maxi DressHat | Black Off the Shoulder SwimsuitPink Swimsuit here & here | Leaf Print SarongEau SpaEau SpaBlack Polka Dot Swimsuit Flower Print Swimsuit | Necklace | Earrings | Bracelets


Room: I’ve received so many questions about our room, which as you can see is literally what I’d call picture perfect. We had an ocean front king room with a balcony that overlooked the adult pool. The room was really spacious with a desk and lounge chair. The balcony sliding doors would turn off the air conditioning as soon us you open them to capture the ocean breeze and turn it back on as soon as they were closed to keep your climate perfect at all times. The bedroom balconies overlooking the ocean truly give you the feeling of having your own private cabana in your room and the room decoration captures the true sense of Palm Beach; a casual luxury. The vibrant yellow and blue colors set the tone for the perfect Palm Beach destination experience.

Pools: The property has two large pools and they both overlook the ocean. One is exclusive for adults with a lap lane and the other for family fun. The first two days we were there, there was no humidity and a cool ocean breeze. I’m the kind of girl that doesn’t get in a pool unless it is extremely hot outside or the pool is heated.  I have to say that I’m very picky with the water temperature in pools and these are both kept at the perfect temperature for even a sunrise swim. There’s also a large hot tub immediately beside the Breeze Ocean Kitchen’s outdoor bar that we loved and frequented as well.

Food: Let’s just say that we were a bit more on a liquid diet because the drinks were amazing!! But, we did eat at two of the four dining options on property, Breeze Ocean Kitchen and Temple Orange Mediterranean Bistro. Temple Orange is the perfect restaurant providing indoor and outdoor dining anytime of the day from breakfast to dinner. Breeze Ocean Kitchen was the perfect pool and beach restaurant and we ate there multiple times. They specialize in fresh food with light sauces & local FL craft brews and the menu was simply to die for. The drinks, the decor and of course the ocean view … we just loved this place.

Beach: The beaches are so beautiful every time I’m in Palm Beach. You’re far enough south that you really get that Caribbean vibe with the light colored sand and stunning array of blues and greens in the ocean. I love getting up early and going for a walk on the beach to catch the sunrise (and for those of you who know me well I am generally not a morning person).  One of the cool historical facts I learned about this beach was that in 1947 part of the A1A highway sank and had to be moved to the opposite side of the property.  So when it’s low tide you can see the remnants of the old sunken A1A that’s now covered in natural coral. It makes an incredible backdrop for pictures or a great opportunity to explore for sea life.

Spa: If I had to describe the Eau Spa experience in one word, it would be incredible. It is a whopping 42,000 sq. ft of relaxation bliss. You will definitely leave feeling like a new person and it truly reflects the idea of taking time out and treating yourself to some well deserved “me time”, which was much needed in my case. #MomLife. What made this Spa experience even more wonderful and unique was that before we started our massages, we enjoyed signature cupcakes and champagne. They sure knew the way straight to my heart and I felt that they delivered an out-of-the-ordinary spa experience. After our massages we hung out in The Self-Centered Garden, which is truly a wonderland. My favorite thing to do there was to sit on the swinging chairs and listen to the waterfall while playing in the water with my feet. I truly relaxed and enjoyed my “me time”.

In Conclusion: I would highly recommend the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. It is definitely a resort that I’ll be visiting quite often. In fact we loved it here so much that Cris and I are considering coming back in August to Celebrate our 15 year Anniversary and experience some of the amazing couples treatments at the spa.  Of course my kids had tons of questions when we returned too and I shared with them some of the amazing kids activities we toured. They informed me “they are already planning a family trip there” because they can’t wait to get their hands on the DJ booth.  I don’t want to forget to mention the amazing staff either. From the minute you pull up in your car till the moment you get back in you car, they make you feel welcome and extremely spoiled. I have truly enjoyed my stay and feel extremely glad to have found an incredible resort that you can have multiple kinds of experiences … from a girls trip to a romantic getaway or family fun in the sun!

Our girls trip was awesome, so if you and your girlfriends would like to visit too, here is some information about a package that they offer for your ultimate girls trip.  XOXO  -E

Let me just start by saying … Obsessed!😍 Talk about a great “look for less” at an amazing price!  This adorable palm print swimsuit is under $50 and is definitely going to be on repeat this summer. At first, I was a little worried about the plunging neckline. You know … trying to keep it classy here.😂  But the fit was very comfortable and “the sisters” were not going anywhere, so I was sold.😆

Spring is right around the corner! So today I’m sharing some of my 2016 Spring & Summer Basics Must Haves. Women's Hot Pink Scalloped High Neck One Piece Swimsuit - Vanilla Beach

 Living here in Orlando and surrounded with water parks, a one piece bathing suit is a must for me (I don’t want my top flying out on a water slide! lol). This one is not only an adorable swim suit, it’s in a great hot pink color and it’s also a great deal under $50. 🙌 If you have an extra $319 laying around, you may like this similar black scalloped one piece as well.Sam Edelman Yardley Suede Lace-Up Sandal, Camel

These Sam Edelman suede sandals absolutely must find their way into my closet, because they are just way too perfect. The color and design make them so easy to style up or down in so many different ways.

Extra-Wide Floppy Straw Hat

During the Spring & Summer seasons, I spend a lot of time at the beach and poolside. A huge sun hat is a life saver.

Orlando has some of the best water parks in the US and my daughters love to water park hop. So, I love to stock up on cover ups and this one is just too adorable to say no to. Plus, it comes in multiple colors.

Tory Burch Miller Patent Leather Logo Thong Sandals - Sand

These Tory Burch sandals are my go-to in Florida and you can almost wear these babies all year long. You may be able to find a pair, or 2, or 3 in my closet. lol. 😝

Dior So Real Sunglasses

A good pair of shades are a must … even though I usually don’t like to spend a lot of money on them, because I tend to scratch or break them within a week! 🙈 But this Spring & Summer season, these babies seem to be the style to have. So I’m considering giving them a try and I’m going to try super hard not to break them. 😉

White and multicolor crochet neoprene brazilian bikini

This one is definitely going to find its way into my closet this summer, because let’s be honest … this bikini is just too cute not to have. 💕 (Update! We now sell it in my boutique, there are five color options and you can mix and match top and bottom sizes too!)

Matisse Atlas Tall Gladiator Sandal

I got these lace up gladiator sandals in 2 colors, tan & black, and I just absolutely love them. They are perfect to add a little bit of an edgy look, but not too much.

365 days of summer embroidered straw clutch

Last, but not least, a straw clutch is the perfect fit for any casual summer look. Here’s hoping the items in this list that I don’t have yet will find their way into my closet, courtesy of the shopping fairy! lol

Until Next Time!  XOXO  -E 💋
