Breakfast With The Roosters

While in Key West (Florida), take the time to have breakfast at Blue Heaven.

“Blue Heaven: Serving heaven on a fork and sin in a glass.”


729 Thomas Street – Key West, Florida

A pair of free spirits, Suzanne and Richard, opened the restaurant ‘Blue Heaven’. It is definitely one of the most casual restaurants in Key West featuring indoor & outdoor dining, live entertainment and American, Caribbean and vegetarian cuisine.

I visited Blue Heaven for breakfast. Try to get there early in the morning if you don’t want to stand in line; it’s a very popular place. While sitting in a cozy courtyard surrounded by the chickens and cats that are roaming the premises, you can enjoy a lovely breakfast. I would suggest the Eggs Benedict to start with. You can have them just the way you like. Top them off with bacon, steak or even lobster. But keep some room for the delicious homemade pancakes. You can choose fresh fruit and maple syrup to go with those thick American pancakes.

Guilty pleasure in the morning? Have a spicy drink, like the ‘Blue Heaven’s Bloody Mary‘. Nobody will look at you in the wrong way for ordering a cocktail with your breakfast. It’s tradition! For the less courageous: drink a Mimosa and definitely try the homemade ICED TEA.

The food is delicious; the staff are incredibly friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. After my first breakfast, I just couldn’t stay away. Next morning I went back for more.

It was just Blue Heavenly!


Travel Essentials

Imagine yourself getting on an airplane looking all fabulous with fresh make up on and a great outfit. After 12 hours of sitting down in that dry airplane air, you’re not getting off the same way you got on. We’ve all been there, haven’t we?

Well, it’s very important to always bring your travel essentials with you on those long flights:

Travel Essentials

How cute are those Stella & Dot Cosmetic bags? I really love them. They are perfect to bring along on your trip and they easilt fit in your handbag. So hurry up and visit Stella&Dot to purchase your own cosmetic bag. Pick out a cute pattern!!

What do we put in our cosmetic bag?

There’s nothing like a little recycled plane air to dry out your skin. So bring along your favorite moisturizer. Mine is currently, Efficlar Duo from La Roche Posay (3). It never leaves me feeling greasy and it’s only 40 ml, so perfect to bring along on a plane.

Two other things you’ll always find in my bag? Hand cream and lip balm. For my hands I picked out a nice smelling soft handcreme form Biotherm (2). Also, I’m crazy about the Vaseline Petrolium Jelly (5). I use it as my lip balm but it’s also perfect for dry hands.

Last but not least, bring cleansing wipes (4). You can refresh your face and neck with them and remove make up.

What to wear on a airplane?

I would go with an easy-fitting sweater and pants. Choose a fabric that doesn’t wrinkle too much and nothing too tight. You will be feeling much comfortable. But more importantly bring a scarf, we all know how cold it can get on a plane. I also bring along a travel pillow, some magazines or a good book. I prefer to bring my own headphones instead of the ones you get on a plane.

What are a few of your own favorite travel essentials?
