Your bedroom might have the world's best mattress, but your bed is only as comfy as your bed sheets are...and a stateroom bed should feel no different!
Nautical style, comfort and functionality...where do I turn to?
The “nearly to impossible” test is over...just a sec, I'll be right back (I have to do the happy dance)...ok, I'm back!
And now I just have a few items to check off the USCG application list...
What a relief...I'm not the only girl in my class! Our instructor Robert is super nice, funny and definitely has his Sh*t together. I'm sharing the overall excitement of my classmates...This is gonna be fun!
We started on the Rules of the Road today. After my husband's stories I was prepared for the worst, but it's really not that bad. Piece of cake! Also, I think the Chart plotting might really be my thing.
When you spend as much time on board as I do, you start wondering what would be the next step? What would be the ultimate goal that separates the recreational boater and a professional? Well, Captain comes to mind...CAPTAIN...hmmm, it's like trying on a new last name or a royal status...Captain Victoria, Captain V...that has a nice ring to it!
But can I do this? Can I really become a captain? Do I have what it takes? And what does it really take?
Accessories...no outfit is complete without it. Anchor bracelets, belts, nautical stacks & watches...these amazing brands are taking Nautical into Stylish & Fashionable!
So here are some of my recent favs...
When it comes to cause and treatment of seasickness there are just as many personal opinions, as there are people on this planet. It's the elephant onboard no one wants to talk about, because “it's contagions” and “not fun”. There are 2 types of boaters: the ones that get seasick and the ones they don't. If you fall into the unlucky category, you have heard it all: “you will get used to it”, “don't drink”, “don't eat”, “look at the horizon”, “snap out of it”, “just don't think about it”...but you still get sick?
I did not want to do another post about a bunch of natural remedies and ideas that might help.
I believe understanding the problem is the first step to managing it.
So what is seasickness?
I wanted to do a post about a few beautiful pieces I got from the Los Angeles based brand Sienna Rose.
I'm in love with this colorful and stylish blouse, that I have chosen to wear as tunic in these pics.
There are not many truly Nautical prints out there. And the Stripes would be sad and lonely if it wasn't for the Chevron. Gotta love the Chevron.

We all call a boat - a “Yacht” and a yacht - a “Boat” just to make things easier.
But really, what is the difference?
Last weekend was the Newport Beach Boat Show. It's not the biggest or the baddest Yacht Show we have in the US, but never the less we had to go...since we are still shopping for an upgrade (yes, my hubby is on the Yachtworld.com every day. #obsessed
So, once again the question is What To Wear?
"Going to a Yacht Show with no info about the dress code is like hiking through the jungle in your bikini...unpleasant, to say the least."
It's not easy to be “The Real Deal”. It's also not a constant, not something you have achieved and don't have to do much after. On the outfit-by-outfit basis you have to find the balance between FF: Functionality and Fabulousness. When “The Real Deal” steps her foot onboard, she Rocks it! It doesn't mean that all she wears are shorts and pants...
I just recently had a friend on board who wore a super cute summer dress, but she had a pair of tight shorts underneath. She was able to be comfortable, but still unique in her fashion sense...
