Brunch at Punchbowl Social

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

I recently had an opportunity to visit Punchbowl Social in Rancho Cucamonga with a group of amazing local bloggers. Punchbowl Social is a restaurant, bar, bowling, alley, and all-around fun place to hang out. They are located in Rancho Cucamonga, CA in the Victoria Gardens Mall, as well as several other locations across the country. We were invited to try their delicious brunch menu, which included a mimosa punchbowl for us to share!

4 Handbags I'm Loving Right Now

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Handbags have always been my favorite item to splurge on. I think they can make the perfect investment pieces, if you pick items that are classic and could be used for multiple seasons or years to come. I have recently purged some bags from my collection and I feel like that has definitely left some holes that I need to fill with new bags. I've been window online shopping for a while now for new bags and these are my current top 4 contenders to possibly enter my collection soon! They each could potentially fill a different handbag need and I think they could be easily worn for many years.

Well, the San Diego County Fair has come and gone for another year. Even though it is already over, I wanted to write up a quick post about my visit this year because I really felt like this was one of the best years of the San Diego County Fair to date! Having grown up in San Diego County, I spent most of my childhood visiting the fair - back when it was called the Del Mar Fair! Some of my best childhood memories include long days spent at the fair eating junk food, riding rides, and seeing concerts. Now that I'm an adult, I don't get to the fair every year like I used to. I typically go every other year, especially now that I'm much less inclined to ride those terrifying fair rides. 

Summer in Southern California Bucket List

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Southern California is probably one of the best places to spend a summer. From Los Angeles to San Diego, there are no shortages of beautiful beaches, delicious restaurants, and fun things to do. I put together this short list of some fun events and activities going on in Southern California this summer, if you have time to do something other than lay on a beach or see a movie outdoors. 😉

Southern California's wine country is located in the Temecula Valley, which is about an hour northeast of San Diego, an hour inland from Orange County, and an hour and a half southeast of Los Angeles. It is a perfect getaway from anywhere in Southern California. Temecula Valley Wine Country is home to over 30 amazing wineries and vineyards. One of the most popular of those wineries is Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyard, which is known for its Almond Sparkling Wine. I recently spent a Sunday afternoon there with my mom for a late Mother's Day treat and had a wonderful experience that I'd love to share.

Chrissy Teigen's Pot Pie Soup

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

I have been trying really hard lately to learn how to cook a wide variety of dishes. I like to think that I am actually improving quite a bit, but I still use a lot of shortcuts to make recipes easier and quicker. I have been wanting to try making some dishes more from scratch. I had seen a tweet from Chrissy Teigen recently where she was making her Pot Pie Soup recipe but she then put it into a casserole dish and covered it with Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuit mix. You can see her tweets about it here and here. It looked absolutely incredible and I knew I needed to learn how to make it ASAP!

I found her recipe on PopSugar and she also has a video making it with Kelly Ripa here.
