Secure The Summer Bag

Hello, Darlings! I hope this blog post finds you relaxed and well. The warmer weather is approaching and I’m ready for some fun In the sun. I’m sharing with you some of my favorite things that I have been enjoying over the past few months, and maybe something on the list will pique your interest. So let’s go shopping and secure that Summer bag with these items.  

Skin Care: All things from Yelle Skin Care    Perfect for all skin types. I use the Yelle Awakening Milk and Honey facial wash, toner, and daily moisturizer. Leaving my skin fresh, smooth and radiant. Makes me wanna “Yelle” for more.



Reading Enjoyment: Woman of Color beautifully written by Lifestyle Blogger Latonya Yvette.  I had the pleasure of meeting Latonya at a book signing a few weeks ago. She has a heart of gold. Pick up your copy!! This book is for ALL women!!!

Lather up: My favorite Body wash at this moment is the Aveeno Positively Radiant Exfoliating Body Wash.  It Leaves my skin healthy looking and it dries away all of those dull layers.  To my lovely sister Lana @style1963 , thank you for introducing me to this product. I had the pleasure of using it for the very first time in Lana’s home. Did I mention how AMAZING it smells?



Personalize Phone Case: My new phone case I just love from Caseapp. You can make this phone case your own with your unique personal design. Here’s mine…. and for those who follow me on Instagram , you are very familiar with my Moniker “Hello Darlings”. How appropriate.. ..right? Head on over to caseapp and get yours. I hope you’re reading this post, because today is the last day to get 20% off using my code Fdettmer20. So hurry, hurry.



Travel in Style:  I’ve been eyeing the Terminal 1 Carry-On luggage by Mark and Graham for months.  I’m happy to say that I just purchased mine today as they have a 20% off memorial day sale.  Boy do I love a sale!!!  I will share with you my review on this beauty once it arrives.  


Specs:  Oh yes.. how could I forget!  Discover my new specs by Tom Ford. Love my new glasses! 😉

The Boutique Charm

Intimate, charming and unique in their own way, I have a thing for Boutique hotels.  This doesn’t mean that I shy away from our  beautiful  Chain Hotels, as I have a very active 8 year old little boy, and as such I opt to stay in Chain Hotels when traveling with him.

However, for most of my solo travel or with friends I prefer “Boutiquing”, ok I think I just made that word up. So here’s the deal as to why I prefer these small luxury hotels and their upscale accommodations.

The Marshall House

  • You will find them in prime locations
  • Some are also nestled inside a larger hotel
  • Approx 10-100 rooms the most (the rooms are decent in size)
  • Obsessed with their rich architecture design
  • Exceptional Service
  • Special touches (Fire Place, paintings  on the wall, flooring , window treatments etc.)
  • Intimate dwelling for guest
  • Added Bonus (Live Entertainment and cocktail hour)
  • A home away from home.

Now don’t frown as some may say, “Boutique hotels can be very pricey”.  Did you know there are some beautiful budget friendly boutique   hotels? You can find some right 👉🏾here. And as you browse the web you may find more budget friendly boutique hotels that are not on this list.  Please share and comment if you do.

I will be discussing more about the two boutique hotels I stayed in when visiting Savannah GA on another post. At times it can be a good thing to stay at two different properties while traveling so you can compare the similarities and the differences.

Thank you all for “Boutiquing” with me and good luck with planning your next stay wherever that may be.✨✨
