“Tuscany” in California.

4 Mar

Last weekend I drove up the coast to Paso Robles- a cute town known for its wineries located on the central coast of California. Unlike Napa Valley in Northern California, Paso Robles resembles the wine country of Italy with its rolling hills. There are 250 wineries in Paso Robles and we visited two for wine tastings and stayed at another. When I say our resort felt like we were in Tuscany, I’m not kidding. pr11

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Our entire stay was amazing and the surroundings were breathtaking.

*We stayed in a room with a vineyard and pool view.

*There is a tasting room, a spa, and a restaurant located inside of the resort.

*They have fun tandem bikes to ride around the property. There are also outdoor games (paddle tennis, horseshoes and cornhole)

 

My Favorite Winter Boots!

22 Jan

We just returned from our winter vacation in the mountains and I got so many questions about my boots. Not only are they stylish, but they’re really warm! I had always wanted Sorel boots, so last winter I figured it was time to make the purchase for our Aspen trip. They kept our feet warm in single digit temps!!! Nina got the brown color and I got the ivory color which is called “Fawn”. I highly recommend them, especially if you’re considering Uggs. Uggs are cozy and warm, but they don’t have traction for icy conditions. Sorel boots are made for harsh weather.

Wrap yourself in Holiday Magic! (under $30)

19 Dec

I’ve been wanting a holiday cape for quite some time. They’re cute, comfy, and super festive. The only con when purchasing a holiday cape is that they will be worn for a limited amount of time. So for me, it never felt right to spend a lot of money on a holiday cape. Hence, why I never had one.

I recently found so many affordable capes on She in.  I chose a red plaid cape with gold button detail and already have an outfit planned for it! If you’re looking for a year round cape or a holiday cape, you should definitely check out She in.

Travel Jewelry Box under $35!

24 Nov

I always bring my favorite jewelry pieces with me when I travel and I’ve had the same travel jewelry box forever and it’s worn out. As I was Black Friday shopping in my pajamas, I came across this super cute and affordable jewelry box. It comes in a variety of colors, has plenty of storage while still being small enough to pack or bring in a purse, and it looks very expensive! I ordered the pink of course and can’t wait to take my next trip with this pretty box. This jewelry box doesn’t look like your average travel jewelry box and could easily be used at home as well to keep your jewelry organized.

Also, if you’re into monograms, you can also add your initials for $9.50.

Hello Kitty Heaven!

25 Oct

Last week my friends and I went to the Hello Kitty Grand Cafe in Irvine, California. It was pretty, pink and perfect. It was nostalgic for me because I was obsessed with Hello Kitty as a kid. The cafe is so cute in the front when you enter. It’s super “Insta worthy” and has plenty of places to take pictures. They sell drinks, merchandise and pastries. But if you want to take it to the next level, you can make a reservation for the Bow room, which is a small room through a locked door in the back of the cafe. It is reservation only and is usually booked far in advance.  You can take a risk and walk in and hope that  someone cancels, the odds are slim so my advice would be to make a reservation online to guarantee a spot. It almost feels like a secret society and once you go in, it’s a magical Hello Kitty pink paradise! The bow room has tea service during the day ($55 per person before tax and tip). Each person is served sweet and savory bites along with a personal teapot filled with the tea of their choice. In the evening the bow room transitions into a speakeasy complete with Hello Kitty cocktails. I still need to go back for the cocktails!

If you love Hello Kitty, you must treat yourself to the Bow room.  You won’t regret it. I lost track of how many times my friends and I said “cute”. Every detail was so cute!

My friends both have amazing Youtube channels. Check them out below.
