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.

Sephora Spring Sale Picks

Friday, April 20, 2018

Sephora is currently having its Spring sale! Higher end makeup rarely goes on sale so it is a great time to stock up on products that you are low on or get some new products to try! The sale is on right now through April 23rd! VIB members will receive 15% off and Beauty Insiders will receive 10% off their entire orders! In today's post, I am sharing my favorite items from Sephora. These are all products that I personally use and love. I won't be shopping the sale this time around because I'm not low on any of these products, but if I was, these are the items that I would be shopping!

Opalhouse is a brand new home decor line at Target that will be available online and in stores starting on April 8th! This line is so good! It has a very unique vibe that really reminds me of a lot of things you could find at Anthropologie but at much better prices! What I especially love about the line is all of the blue and white and all of the wicker/rattan items! I've put together this guide with all of my favorite pieces from Opalhouse at Target!
