Pray I Easter Blessings

"It's a glorious day" proclaims Father Charlie, the eponymous reverend of St Barth's Anglican Church. And indeed it was! (We are a few days late in sharing our story here but we are currently on island time so please forgive the tardiness.) Celebrating Easter in St Barth has been a long standing tradition in our family.  Both our children were baptized at the Anglican Church on Easter Sunday so the holiday holds a very special place in our hearts. The Easter service at the church is like no other. The island is bathed in the most magical light and the air is thick with the smell of gardenias. The church's windows and doors are thrown wide open inviting the beauty...

Play | St Barths Guide for Kids

With spring break and travel are on everyone's mind, I thought it would be fun to create our version of a St Barth's Travel Guide for Kids. Cue the chocolate croissants, cheeseburgers in paradise and the best beach to find hidden treasures, plus a whole lot more! Breakfast at La Petite Colombe We have been traveling to the island with our children since our youngest was 11 months old. I remember celebrating his second birthday there with the most beautiful french chocolate cake from La Petite Colombe, one of our favorite bakeries on the island. Almost every morning we walk down the hill from our home, grab a coffee, a few freshly baked pastries and sandwiches for a picnic on...

Love I Maya's

18 years ago this month my husband and I said "I do" in front of 100 of our close friends and family at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church in Gustavia.  It was a magical ceremony at the historic church topped off by a show stopping aria of Ava Maria performed by Laurent, a singer with a voice of an angel by night and a baker by day! A quick Moke ride through town with a pit stop at Le Select brought us to Maya's for cocktails and dinner.  Ours was the first wedding party that Maya and Randy had ever put on at their charming waterside restaurant that they opened in 1984. It was a night like no other complete with...

Shop | Gustavia

When we aren't at St Jean with the family, one of our favorite beaches on the island if you have little ones. We are most definitely visiting a few of our favorite local boutiques, for a fun day of shopping! While we have so many beautiful boutiques on our "must visit list", we thought it might be fun to introduce you to a few of our longtime favorites in Gustavia. Bérangère Windels, Popie, is the owner of  Popie's on St Barth. Known for her beautiful hand-made styles created out of the timeless and chic Liberty of London prints, Popie's has forever been and will always be on our shopping list. Her sweet store is full of gorgeous liberty print styles...

The Story Begins | Resort 2021 Collection

With the most recent launch of our 2021 Resort Collection we thought it would be fun to bring you along...A little sneak peak into what inspired our collection, a "behind the scenes" as we'd like to call it and where our story began. Every collection starts with inspiration, what is inspiring us in the moment. We don't set boundaries for our inspiration, we let it move through us like the waves of St. Barth. Colors, textures, the aqua blue seas of Petit St. Jean the vibrant tropical flowers that adorn the island or the emerald green palms that line the streets of Gustavia.   We take it all in, and put our own Mer spin on it! We add hand...
