Getaway: Fun In The Woods.

"Ki, ki, ki, ma, ma, ma." -Jason Voorhees

Can't blame a girl for loving a classic horror move like Friday The 13th right?  How could I resist the Jason cameo! Shortly after going through a traumatic experience with pet loss and my now beloved and greatly missed Chihuahua dog angel Bambi, my boyfriend thought it would be a good time to take a quick little trip to get me out the house and into a different atmosphere. So sweet of him and honestly, he was probably right about the timing... sometimes we don't know what's best for us in times of despair. 

He took me to Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. We used to go there often because my boyfriend plays poker and there's also a variety of things you can enjoy. They have a Tanger Outlet Mall, nice restaurants, all sorts of casino games, music performances, stand up shows, golf, bowling,  and of course a spa and a gym just to name a few. Plus if you feel like being adventurous you're by the woods! They have marked trails you can walk at your own risk. Of course I would be careful because I wouldn't want a real like horror movie on my hands. 

The first night we were at Foxwoods we stayed at the Two Trees Inn which really is like a little cabin styled hotel. It felt nice to sit by the warm fire and just relax. Two Trees Inn offers a complimentary shuttle ride to the casino which is less than 10 minutes away. The second night we were there, we stayed at the Grand Pequot Tower inside the casino which was very nice and more on the elegant side I guess you could say.

I was pretty casual and cool during my trip and didn't feel like getting too done up. I didn't wear any makeup besides a orange toned Revlon lipstick. I sported a pair of Levi's shorts, a tank top from H&M, a thrifted sheer shirt with a floral pattern, some black Jordan sneakers and a hat with the Korean finger symbol of 'love' on it. 

Truly for me this trip was about relaxing and trying to get my mind right more than anything else. George did most of the gambling and I dabbled a bit. Mainly on this ocassion I enjoyed spending time in my room working and cherishing the view of what seemed to be an endless amount of trees from my window. I checked out the Tanger Outlet Mall where I purchased a pair of Nike sneakers and another pair of sneakers from Under Armour. 

While we were there we ate at Golden Dragon which is a Chinese restaurant and we also took a short detour before we left at the Arcade and played some old school Nintendo games. It's nice to take it back sometimes... Super Mario Bros is the best!

It was a quick little get away and is perfect for anyone located in areas such as New York or New Jersey and find themselves needing to escape the daily grind and relax. Remember to take care of you!
