Ryan dreaded turning 30 last year! So much so that I had to plan 16 days across Scandinavia, filled with adventure to distract him! For my 30th birthday Ryan took the lead and planned our trip! Before I handed over the reigns, I stumbled upon Sugar Beach in St. Lucia, read a few reviews, and fell in love. We packed so light that for the first time we shared a carry-on suitcase! We only had to pack a few bathing suits, a nice dinner look, and workout clothes. Easy. After a short 4 hour flight from JFK, we took a...

My parents, Ryan, and I have always talked about going to Italy. We dreamed of finding a beautiful house in the countryside and exploring all the neighboring villages. When my parents found an available house through their timeshare, we had to take it! Since it's such a long flight (7 hours), we wanted to see as many cities as possible. We flew Swiss Airlines straight to Geneva, Switzerland and stayed at La Reserve Geneva - I can't recommend both enough! They even had breakfast waiting for us in-room after our long flight. On property they have five restaurants, a spa,...

Make sure to check out Part 1! After a full day of travel, we got to Copenhagen, Denmark! We booked a room at The Marriott through our American Express for extra points. I won't do that again! Copenhagen is pretty spread out so location is extremely important. Figure out what all you want to do and then find a hotel or Airbnb near all of your activities. Because everything is so spread out, everyone bikes! We were amazed at the number of bikes outside every restaurant, school, train station, etc. While I unpacked, Ryan found a vegetarian buffet, RizRaz, in...

Ryan has always dreaded his 30th birthday, so to make it a little easier we planned a 16 day trip

Ryan has always dreaded his 30th birthday, so to make it a little easier we planned a 16 day trip to Scandinavia! After tons of research on which cities to visit, we booked our Norwegian Air flights and hotels months in advance. As the trip got closer, we asked friends and family for recommendations, but the game-changer was finding Alex at The Nomad's Direction! After meeting Alex through a Facebook group for women entrepreneurs, we met for coffee and she planned our entire trip! All I did was take a questionnaire so Alex could get to know our vacationing style....

My husband, Ryan, and I started styleNmotion over 2 years ago as a travel blog. We were living in California at the time and experiencing so many amazing places that we wanted to document and share! You can check out our first documented trip here. styleNmotion has evolved and grown into my full time job as an online clothing boutique and styling service for women of all walks of life. Which means that the blog needed to evolve with it! Ryan is taking a backseat on writing (I keep him busy enough with photography and the website!) and I'm now...
