Monday Must-Haves

My recent trip to Zihuatenejo gave me a serious dose of wanderlust, which is why it was only fitting to make this week’s Monday Must-Have’s about travel. I hope to make my top 5 dream destinations a reality in the (very) near future! xo

WL_Nov_MMH_011. New York, New York
I’m heading to the big apple for the first time ever in March! I’ve been dreaming about this day since I was a teenager, so the anticipation is killing me. Any shopping, dining, and nightlife recommendations? Send ‘em my way!

WL_Nov_MMH_022. The Four Seasons Hotel in Bora, Bora
Mark and I have always wanted to stay in a tropical room over the ocean, so this is definitely on our family bucket list. There’s nothing more tranquil than having an all-access pass to bright blue water!

WL_Nov_MMH_033. Venice, Italy
Pizza, pasta, and romance? Ciao!

WL_Nov_MMH_044. Santorini, Greece
There’s nothing that would make me happier than waking up to blue skies, crystal clear water, and all-white architecture. Plus, I’ve heard the people here are some of the friendliest in the world!

WL_Nov_MMH_055. Paris, France
The last time I was in Paris was on my honeymoon, and I’m dying to go back – the lights, food, and incredible fashion left me swooning for more. I’m hoping my next trip will be during Paris Fashion Week (hint hint, Mark!).

Are there any places you’d love to visit? Whether they’re near or far, I’d love to hear your dream vacay spots!
