For the small cost of shipping you can get 3 free sample perfume vials from daVignia Organics. I love their fragrances because they’re completely natural. That means there are no additives like alcohol or other chemicals. Just fragrance oils. That’s it. Check out their new summer scents at www.davignia.etsy.com.

Cape Cod is where I spent my teenage years growing up. The winters are great with ponds to skate on and fires in the old stone fireplace. Falmouth is a sleepy town in the wintertime. It's the best place in the world to wind down and relax. Summers are bustling with tourists and the weather is always perfect for a bike ride. I could get everywhere on my bicycle since the best shops and restaurants are all located on Main Street and the beach is just a 15 minute ride from town. The Cape has a myriad of lovely B&B's to accomodate even the most discriminating travelers. Check out the Inn On The Sound located right on the beach. For fun, I love going over to Woods Hole to stroll through the little museums and gaze at the lighthouse. Being in the heart of New England there is so much rich history to see and learn about. I always love going to the Plimouth Plantation where actors bring history to life. In the summertime you can enjoy a ferry ride to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. The sea breeze is always cool and sunny days are always so enjoyable you can spend the entire day outside. I LOVE CAPE COD!

All the world wants to do for a living what they love. I know I'd give anything to be able to wake up in a new exotic international destination once a week. Who doesn't fantasize about strolling down a crystal blue polynesian beach or sipping fine Italian wine in Venice? Imagine being able to see the world, write about all your exciting adventures AND get paid for it all at once. Check it out here!

Try Anguilla! We've got tips on how to thaw out AND do it on a budget. Known for its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, this is a great Caribbean getaway destination. You'll find quaint bed-and-breakfast accomodations like Lloyd's Guest House. This B&B is the oldest on the island. And its nine guest rooms start at a bargain $75 for a single and $105 for a double.
Anguilla is very low key and relaxed. All beaches offer free access with the most undisturbed being Upper Shoal Bay East. If you grow tired of sunbathing there is always horseback riding. El Rancho del Blues offers hourlong tours through sea grape bushes by Lockrum Bay.
Where to eat? The best places are right along the roadside on the four wheel carts. In the Valley, Hungry's is some good eatin' serving fresh fish and lobster quesadillas stuffed with spicy veggies and gooey Gouda. Throw in a Heineken for the cheapest beer you'll find anywhere.
And for you shopaholics, artists landscape paintings can be found throughout the island and are also reproduced on to bags and t-shirts. Anguilla has something for everyone. So why wait, book that flight reservation right now!
