Cute & Comfy Hiking Boots!

14 Jul

Hiking is one of my favorite activities, I’ve been doing it for years- in sneakers. I had never really given any thought to getting hiking boots. I had nothing against them, but I just always threw on sneakers for workouts including hikes. Once the Covid-19 pandemic started, I started hiking more than ever and doing difficult hikes as well. I thought  hiking boots might be a good idea, and began to research. I quickly realized that Columbia hiking boots had some of the best reviews. What struck me as important is the fact that so many reviews mentioned comfort. People went on and on about how comfortable they were. Avid hikers raved about these boots. So I found some with pink laces(of course) and bought them without trying them on. I’m glad I did, they are cute, waterproof, easy to get on and off, and very comfortable- comfortable right out of the box!!! No breaking in needed at all. I have been on 4 hikes with them now and am so impressed. I can’t recommend these boots enough.

This style is called Newton Ridge. They’re available in other colors as well and are waterproof. Click Here to shop.

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.

Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

 

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer. 

My Paris Trip!

16 Jun

I  recently arrived back home to Los angeles from a dream vacation to Paris with my wife. I was so satisfied when the trip ended and I looked back at all that we had done- We did everything on our list and more. As promised, here are just some of our many pictures below. Paris is considered to be a trip of a lifetime for most and it did not disappoint. Bucket list…..Check!

Random travel tips:

*Exchange your money before you go to save a bit on the exchange rate and save time waiting in line at the French airport.

*Learn a few common phrases in French. ‘hello, goodbye, thank you, how much’ etc.

*Get the international data plan your phone carrier offers, it’s worth it. My plan was just $10 a day to use data in France.

*Don’t forget to bring outlet converters (specifically for France) so that you can charge your electronics, including your phone.

*Indulge!!!! Counting calories can be done when you get back home! There is also plenty of walking to offset the overeating you will do! We walked 10-15 miles a day!

Me- right before Nina surprised me with a beautiful band to add to my wedding stack. It was beyond romantic. I will never forget that moment.
