"Vacation"

Travel to the Philippines with Mariel Hannah

So I've said it time and time again, but these travel posts are always so detrimental to both my productivity and my wanderlust. The Philippines have always intrigued me, but Mariel Hannah has just ensured that it's skyrocketed to the top of the list. Have you ever seen anything more picturesque? I just can't get over all the beauty. And if you're anything like me, you might want to spend some time...

The Outer Banks from Elaine Palladino

It's been years since I've been on a true beach vacation. You know the ones where you conveniently forget your makeup bag at home and let the wind and salty air deal with your hair on its own? Ah, the beachy mane - how I love thee. I actually didn't realize I was craving that kind of relaxation until making my way through these incredible photos of The Outer Banks. Captured by Elaine Palladino, I'm thinking that something like this...

The Amalfi Coast with Lark & Linen

If you happen to read my personal blog, lark & linen, you're already well aware that I snuck away for a handful of days not long ago. My boyfriend and I found a ridiculous deal for a week on the Amalfi Coast - one we simply couldn't pass up (regularly "wasting time" on travel-deal sites pays off, I tell you!) So we quickly packed our bags and off we went. I've been fortunate enough in my life to have visited a few incredible places...

What to Pack for the Amalfi Coast

Alright SMPers, we're shifting focus today and talking all-things-Amalfi-Coast. My boyfriend and I recently returned from a week stint in what can only be described as the most beautiful place on earth (not that I'm biased or anything). I'll be sharing some of my photographic proof later on today, but in the meantime we need to ensure we're equipped with the essentials before we head off on our virtual journey. As a sleepy sea-side Italian slice of beachy, mountainy heaven, you really don't need...

Peru with Merari Teruel

This is now the fourth time this month that Peru has made its way onto my radar. That's got to be a sign, right? I knew it was chock full of gorgeous sights to be seen, but after taking a look through Merari Teruel's photos, I'm fairly confident that I need to experience it for myself. Because, and let's be honest here, this is not something I want to...

Packed for Paris

If I were going somewhere as fabulous as Paris, like our very own Abby C. recently did (not jealous or anything), you can bet your pretty little chapeau that would be my #1 excuse to update my wardrobe. Since I'm so inspired to plan a trip now, Abby let me in on some of the items she packed and shared some of her snapshots, which sort of makes me dream of Paris...

Paris with Lexia Frank

So we're more than fully aware that we've already showcased Paris in the past, but when you get a chance to view it through Lexia Frank's lens you don't DARE say no. Because the girl has a serious way of capturing the essence, the soul if you will, of each and every thing she photographs. And this series of images...

Iceland with The Manchiks

Iceland has long been on my list of top travel destinations. There's just something about the sheer, raw, beauty found every which way you look; the dramatic landscape and the wild, long haired horses (oh the wild, long haired horses!) that simply calls out to me. After making my way through Julia & Yuriy's photos documenting their most recent vacation, I find myself googling flights to Reykjavik more often than I should...

Switzerland, Amsterdam & Brussels with Lexia Frank

These travel posts are proving to be terribly dangerous for me (and my wallet, primarily). My vacation bucket list has grown exponentially since they began, and I often find myself daydreaming of far away places and the things I would get up to. Though these wonderful European cities have always been on said list, they have quickly risen to the very top thanks to Lexia Frank and her most recent voyage.

Italy with Ely Fair Photography

Ah, Italy. The place where time stands still. Where it's perfectly acceptable to drink a glass of brunello with breakfast, and an entire bottle to yourself at dinner - and not a single soul will give you even the slightest amount of side eye. Between gorgeous beachy views and sun-soaked rolling hills, there isn't a place in the world I'd rather be. Captured by Ely Fair Photography, let's take a moment to soak in this virtual vacation, shall...

Florida Keys with Jeremy Harwell

I had the pleasure of spending a ton of time in Florida as a child, and it's one of those places that I hold dear to my heart. Chock full of fantastic memories, complete with balmy weather and sunshine almost year round, it's one of those spots I'd be happy to return to again and again. And until that moment presents itself once more, I'll soak up the Florida sun through Jeremy Harwell's gorgeous photos. Heading to the Keys yourself...

Ace Hotel with Anais + Dax

The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs is kind of like a blogger haven. It simply oozes that easy breezy, not-trying-too-hard cool factor that you just can't fake. Not having had the opportunity thus far to see it for myself, I'm glad we have talented folks like Anais + Dax who can bring us along virtually.

Jose Villa in Cuba

When Jose sent over these images from his recent trip to Cuba, I told him that they deserved to be in a gallery. We all know Jose Villa thanks to his beloved wedding photographs, though what we don't always get to see, are the images that he captures along the way. The photographs that tell a story beyond white dresses and fairytales and capture life in a slightly different way.

Jose Villa in Morocco

Photographers are a rare breed. They see the world through the lens of a camera, always aware of beautiful shots, stunning vingettes, powerful moments. And if ever there was a photographer whose lens I wish I could peak into, it would be Jose Villa. Because his life - and every nook and cranny within it - has soul. And texture. And a sense of space and life and history. So when he gave us this rare glimpse into his travels to Morocco -...

Travel Essentials

Today we're talking all things travel and I couldn't be more excited. We've got some incredible travel diaries coming up this afternoon and I'm pretty sure you don't want to miss em' (I don't know about you, but I'm totally living vicariously through our travel posts). In the meantime, we thought we'd round up some of our very favourite travel essentials, SMP styles. While we all know that comfort is of...

Savannah City Guide from Jeremy Harwell

My best friend in college grew up in Savannah. And she was fabulous. With a pretty Southern accent that could charm the pants off of just about anyone she came across. So when she invited us home for a Summertime visit, well, we knew that it would be something special. What we didn't know, was just how very special that Savannah trip would be  - with sweeping gardens and French inspired architecture and food and food and food for days. It was magic. And...

Sassi, Italy with Rebecca Lindon

I have to admit, I'd never heart about Sassi, Italy until these images landed in my inbox. I feel as if I've somehow stumbled upon a goldmine. A goldmine made up of ancient caves and rock formations, rolling hills and stunning vistas as far as the eye can see. This particular series of images from Rebecca Lindon will, without question, have me dreaming of Italian vacations for weeks to come, I'm sure.

Zero George Street Boutique Hotel

As an avid traveller, I'm constantly on the hunt for cute boutique hotels in which to rest my weary head. Though I've had the pleasure of staying at a few notable locales, I have to admit that they've all palled in comparison to this one. Captured by Corbin Gurkin, this Charleston hotel is all that and a bag of chips. Zero George Street Hotel has paired Southern charm with classical...

Dining in Copenhagen from Eat Boutique & White Loft Studio

Having legitimately sustained myself on chicken fingers and buttered noodles until the age of twelve, nobody in their right mind would have ever guessed I'd grow a serious appreciation for food. Quail's eggs, bone marrow, whipped mint mousse... these days I'd gladly savour it all. Dining at the world famous Noma has long been high atop my bucket list, but until I make my way to Denmark, I'll have to live vicariously through Maggie &...

Travel to Paris with Eat Boutique & White Loft Studio

Paris. The land of love. And of baguettes and macarons and well pretty much everything sinfully delicious in the world. It's architecture and history and layer upon layer of beauty.  So lucky for us, the lovely, lovely Maggie Batista of Eat Boutique with photographs by our friend Heidi Murphy of White Loft Studio is taking us along to discover her Paris. The cafes and...
