Where Bling Meets the Beach

Hi! I was in The Resort Shop at Lago Mar today shopping for teacher gifts when I came across one of the neatest handbags I have seen in a long time! I would describe the bag as "where bling meets the beach". It is a handmade woven straw bag made by Skemo. It has tassels decorated with the brand’s gorgeous, signature Czech crystals. I have been thinking about it all day... hoping Santa reads my blog and will give it ...

It’s Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas at Lago Mar

Hi! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Lago Mar! We have a tall, beautiful tree in the main lobby, which is decorated with gold hydrangeas, glittery gold balls, silver butterflies and birds and precious angel ornaments. The fireplace in this lobby is also stunning with its gold and silver accents and pale green poinsettias. My favorite part of the resort at this time of the year is The Gallery Walkway with the fresh garlands crisscrossing all the ...

A Night Out with our “Tween” Guests

Hi!  Every Thanksgiving I take a group of "tweens", who  have been staying at Lago Mar since they were basically born, out to a restaurant for dinner.  This gives them a night out and also gives their parents an evening to go out alone.  In the past we have done Bimini Boatyard, Southport Raw Bar, China Grill, and the Japanese Steakhouse.  This year, however,  they wanted to go see "Twilight:  Breaking Dawn 2".   After the kid's program was over ...

Lunch on The Sea Grape Terrace

Hi!  Yesterday, I invited a few girlfriends and their kids over to Lago Mar for lunch, and it was such a nice day!  My three girlfriends and I sat on the Sea Grape Terrace at one table, while the kids sat at the table next to us.  It was so perfect because after they ordered the kids ran to the playground while we sat and caught up on all  the gossip.  The best part of this arrangement  was  that we ...

The Allure of the Seas: What an Amazing Sight!

Hi!  I was in in my backyard the other day and was in awe of what I saw....The Allure of the Seas leaving Port Everglades.  I see it all the time but it still leaves me breathless.  I actually live right around the corner from Lago Mar, so after the Allure travels through the port behind my house it enters the ocean about 400 yards from the hotel.  Our  guests love to sit on their balconies and watch, often with ...
