Cool Spots to Eat, Shop, and Drink in Richmond, Virginia (A Travel Guide)

As part of the 12 trips in 12 months series, Jeff and I flew to Richmond, VA recently and explored the city for a long weekend, in partnership with Uber, a ride request app available in over 500 cities around the world. I had never been to Richmond before and really didn’t know what to expect (other than being excited to visit one of my favorite online store’s brick and mortar location). But it was really, really charming. And I absolutely want to go back again soon.

We managed to hit up pretty much everything we were hoping to (and more) – all without getting heat stroke. It was really hot that weekend. Click through for all of my fave places to eat, drink, shop, stay, etc in Richmond, Virginia. Also known as RVA.

Taco Time: Pineapple Mango Chicken Tacos

In my mind, tacos are the perfect summer food. They’re easy to make, delicious, and (depending on how many you eat) light and refreshing too. I’ve been craving them more and more lately – especially after our cruise with Carnival Cruise Line. I think Jeff and I had tacos nearly everyday on the ship.

So, since we’ve been back, I’ve been experimenting with more taco recipes at home and came up with one that feels the most like summer to me. And am sharing it today!

Turks and Caicos (Where to Go in Grand Turk)

I’ve been traveling so much lately, I almost forgot to post photos from my one of my fave tropical locations to date: Turks and Caicos!

Jeff and I visited Grand Turk for the day as one of the stops on our cruise and I am already dying to go back. The beaches are soon beautiful – the water is crystal clear and gives off all of the turquoise tropical vibes. There was a nice beach literally right off the ship, at the port, but I knew there was more than we were seeing right around there. So, we did some quick Google searches (what would we do without it?) and realized Governor’s Beach was only a few minute taxi ride away. Done!

The first thing we saw when we arrived at the beach was a huge abandon ship and one of the prettiest beaches I’ve ever seen. It was even crazier than Catalina Island (which I also loved).

13 Incredibly Cool Kitchens (For Every Style)

I’ve been working on some changes for the studio kitchen behind the scenes and have managed to amass a pretty big pile of inspiration. There are SO many options when it comes to cool kitchens, in some ways it feels like you can’t go wrong. You can go trendy, classic, budget-friendly, minimal, high-contrast, monochromatic, etc, etc. BUT with all of those options, it can be difficult to nail down just one look that fits the bill.

So, just for fun, let’s not bother to narrow things down and just admire all of the amazing options. Here are 17 incredibly cool kitchens in every style.
