We recently had the luxury of staying at Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay and it was such a DREAM. Half Moon Bay is a small city on the California coast and is a total dream for nature lovers. The coastline has lots of paths for hiking and biking and the water is great for surfing and boating.
This past week my little family and I got to spend some time at Hotel Yountville and it was so amazing. We really had the best time exploring the area and spending time together. The hotel is tucked away in in the heart of Napa Valley. We had the most breathtaking views of Wine Country. I mean, we were definitely in the most prime location, we were surrounded by more than 400 wineries. It was so hard to leave.
Anyone else finding it hard to believe that Christmas is only 4 days away?? This year has totally flown by.
Well, for all of you last minute shoppers out there... I've put together a few last minute gift guides! All of these gift ideas will arrive by Christmas so long as you order by the end of today, 12/21!
I recently got the chance to be completely pampered at the luxurious Alvadora Spa at Royal Palms Resort and Spa here in Phoenix. Royal Palms is nestled at the base of Arizona's Camelback Mountain, between downtown Scottsdale and the Biltmore corridor, and is only 7 miles from Phoenix International airport.
This past weekend we got to stay at one of our favorite resorts, Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona. We love visiting Sedona, especially during this time of year. It was a much needed getaway for our family. We definitely all came back feeling refreshed.
Our skin is our largest and most exposed organ, so why wouldn’t we want to take extra good care of it? Over the past few years I have learned that a good skincare routine is always better than a lengthy makeup routine. If my skin is healthy and glowing, I feel much more confident and don’t want or need to wear as much makeup.
Through my love for skincare, I have found what works best for me and my skin.
As a new mom, I’m always on the hunt for the best products for me and my little one. The very best products are the ones that I can trust and that can simplify my life. I have definitely found that in my Willow Pump.
You guys probably already know, but Sedona is one of our favorite weekend trip destinations. It’s so beautiful, the weather is always nicer than it is in Phoenix and there’s lots to do. One of the best parts of visiting Sedona is getting to stay at the Hilton Sedona Bell Rock.
We LOVE vacationing here because it is just the best escape. The resort is so peaceful and relaxing as it’s nestled right in the middle of Sedona’s red rock mountains. Honestly no matter where you are within the resort, the view is spectacular.
Salads come in all different shapes, sizes, flavors, and believe me I do not discriminate. But if you think about it, all of the different varieties bring something different to the table, literally. So what makes a salad good?
The answer: so many different things. There are many parts to the equation that I cannot imagine my salad without. I am here to share my all time faves for the perfect at home salad.
As we all know I am organic everything! I get it, sometimes it may not be an option but using clean products, especially where it counts, will only add positive things to your life.
Being a woman we get so many “great” pleasures that men don’t have. The wider hips, child birth, societal pressure, and everyones favorite: periods. I have recently started to realize that many women just grab what is convent and go. I understand women are busier than ever these days. But your easy go to’s do not have to be unhealthy.
Because I mainly work from home I am used to the midday slumps or random mood spurts. But every since becoming a mom, being home is more work than ever before. Seeing the same four walls day after day can actually get tiring… believe it or not. This is why I have a few different daily life savers that perk me up and give me energy.
We are still pretty much burning up over here in Phoenix these days. Hopefully it will cool down soon for fall, but in the meantime we have recently found another way to keep cool.
Okay, I know I have lived in Arizona for a few years now and should be used to the extreme temps. But no. They are still rising and because of this, the outfit options aren't great. I can’t layer in the summer or ever throw on any type of cardigan or jacket to complete a look.
Since moving here I have tried so many things to look cute and keep cool & comfortable during the summer. While some of my efforts were not successful I am here to tell you about the ones that were. The pieces I stick to no matter what because I know they won’t let me down when the temps keep going up.
Have you ever been scrambling last minute to get everything ready for the party you are hosting? We have all been there. It is stressful, panicky, and if you are in Arizona like me: too damn hot to be going from store to store. So after learning from my mistakes I have decided that I am more of an online shopper.
Okay, I totally get that the main benefit of brushing your teeth is so that people will not run away when you greet them, and the obvious dental hygiene perks. A pretty smile and healthy teeth is definitely worth the two times a day in my opinion. But what if I told you there are so many more reasons to keep up with your daily brushing habits?
