There are some great perks when your husband travels a lot for a living, like impromptu weekend trips to fun places such as San Juan, PR! The weather in Atlanta has been cool and dreary so I jumped at the chance to head to the sunny beaches of the caribbean. I had never been to Puerto Rico before and was excited to explore what it had to offer.
Here I’m spotted sightseeing in Old San Juan.
This was the beautiful view from our hotel room. We stayed at the La Concha Resort nestled in Condado. I love how you could be in the middle of the city and have a private beach in your backyard. The hotel was a very hip and happening place. I highly recommend it if you’re ever in San Juan.
I have so many pics of Old San Juan that it was hard to pick just a few to share. I’m kind of a architecture nerd and could gaze at old buildings all day long! I was surprised at how much history there was to explore in Old San Juan.
This is part of the San Juan National Historic Site. A must see in PR!
Look at that gorgeous water and sky in the distance.
Ha! My husband caught me dancing in the moonlight…
This morning I read my email as I usually do and stumbled across a pleasant surprise in my Daily Candy email. There was a grand opening of a new shoe store in Buckhead called Flatz Shoes! The concept is simple…..they sell only flat shoes. The savvy woman behind this clever idea is Kelci Stringer. Although I am a die-hard high heel kind of girl, I was intrigued by the idea. I met a good friend of mine for lunch and we moseyed on down the street to explore the new store. As we opened the door, we were wowed by the impeccably designed space and were greeted by a very personably woman, Christina.
They don’t carry your typical department store shoes. Instead you will find spiked pointy-toe flats and awesomely rugged boots by some really great brands including Blackstone, Frye, A.B.S., and Ramon Tenza. They also have gorgeous loafers, smoking slippers, ballet flats and booties. I fell in love with several pairs and will definitely return for some purchases.
Lots and lots of eye candy…..
You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or even better, stop by the store at 314 Pharr Rd, Suite A in Buckhead. Be prepared for a wonderful shoe experience!
