The Greatest Getaway, Ever… Edinburgh, Scotland!

As I mentioned (here) Hilton HHonors invite me to join them on a great getaway to Edinburgh, Scotland. What a way to celebrate my 30th Birthday! Here’s a little video with a few highlights from my trip. I didn’t run into Gerard Butler, but I did meet a man… watch the video for all the details 😉  I had an amazing time!!! Scotland, you have my heart. Below are a few photos from my trip and to find out more about the Hilton HHonors program click here.

Edinburgh4Each room was stocked with Salvador Ferragamo beauty products. Loved them so much that I just had to take a few home with me. Just a few… 😉

Edinburgh5This hotel was beautifully decorated

Edinburgh6So lush. So green.

Edinburgh7Once an old home, this building had been converted into an office space. Loving the updated pop of color.

Edinburgh11Watching Major Piper Grant play the bagpipes was much easier than learning to play the bagpipes

Edinburgh12Watching master craftsmen at Hamilton & Inches create silver pieces was nothing short of amazing. I never truly realized the time and effort that goes into crafting each pieces. They make tons of pieces for the Queen herself. Such a cool experience.
