Hi everyone! I’m back from my bed & breakfast weekend getaway :D We stayed at L’auberge Provencale in Virginia, and being my first time in a bed-and-breakfast in the countryside, I had to take some photos.
One of the main reasons I chose this room was for the tub – I was able to enjoy a lovely bath on both nights of my stay and try out the LUSH bath bombs I got for my birthday. Quick review: while they made my skin super soft, I thought they were rather disappointing. Not worth the $7 IMO.
The decor of the place definitely had a French countryside feel to it. That along with the homemade refreshments made me feel like I was at my grandmother’s cottage (which really doesn’t make sense since my grandmother wasn’t even French, but you get my gist). When we arrived Saturday afternoon, the first thing we did was to go on a picnic, and I wore the outfit I planned on Friday :)
On Sunday after breakfast, we went wine tasting at Delaplane Cellars. It was great because the inn we stayed at gave us coupons for free tastings, though we ended up buying a bottle anyways :P
After wine tasting we went horseback riding at Highlander Horses, which was a lot of fun. My boyfriend’s horse was a lot more obedient, while mine seemed like it didn’t want to be there at all -_- It was evident when my horse kept walking me into tree branches, despite my tugging on the reins and using it on his bum. But at least none of us got thrown off, which we’re both thankful for. Not too thankful for our sore butts and backs though :(
Sunday night we dined at the inn’s own restaurant. It was a quaint place, but still very classy. They even had customized menus!
The food was expensive, but spectacular. The executive chef even came out to greet us and he was thrilled when he saw me taking photos of the food, saying that he took just as much pride in the presentation as in the flavor :)
Overall it was a wonderful trip, and I definitely would do it again in the future. Honestly I never considered myself a country girl, but it’s a nice change from the usual city or beach trips I usually take :)
Hope you all had a great weekend, and don’t forget to enter my skincare/makeup giveaway!
