Have that one person who is always jumping on a plane and jetting off to a new adventure? A lot of times I feel like these people are minimalists because well seasoned travelers don’t seem to travel with much but anything to make their travel adventures easier, they are all for! Some items that I can never travel without are my headphones, neck pillow and packing cubes! I’ve linked all of those and many more below.
Know someone in your life that you want to spoil the heck out of this holiday season?! I found a lot of these designer items severely discounted which almost NEVER happens so if you see a good deal, I would snag it ASAP!
Christmas is hard when your mom deserves a private island but you can only afford a candle am I right? It’s also extremely hard to pick out a gift for someone that does so much for you and you want to return the favor in some small way. I know a gift will never sum up the amount of love we have for our mamas but here are a few thoughtful gift ideas that might put a smile on her face.

In preparation of Valentine’s Day coming up, I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the biggest love day than with all of my girl’s and the one thing I love the most – WINE! Boys come and go but your girlfriends and wine just seem to get better with time 🙂 Cheesy? Hey, at least it pairs well with the wine right!
Sonoma Wine Bar & Restaurant opened their doors for us to enjoy a night on their rooftop patio complete with rosé and light bites (if you consider sliders and several bowls of fries light). Of course the fries were the first thing we finished off if I remember correctly. Other favorites included zucchini chips with with lemon yogurt sauce (YUM!), fried cheese curds with tomato curry sauce, deviled eggs, mushroom pizza, cheeseburger sliders, sesame crusted ahi tuna with soy glaze, and the poutine (my personal fav). Clearly our motto for ladies night was “leave no food behind”.
Whether you are single, tied down or just want a night for the girls, Galentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to get the girls together and have a good time. In case it wasn’t already obvious what Galentine’s day means, it is simply celebrating Valentine’s Day or activities with your gals. If you are needing some ideas of fun things to do with your gals, I’ve listed my plans as well as a few others below.
Wine Night: You can never go wrong here. Whether you all hit up a local favorite like Sonoma, or decide to keep the party at home, wine, cheese, and girlfriends are the perfect match.
Chick Flick: My roomies and I have already decided that we will be seeing 50 Shades Darker. There are always chick flicks that come out right in time for Valentine’s Day so grab the girls and see a movie that you know you couldn’t drag your men to.
Pinterest Craft: You know all of those artsy crafts that you pin but never actually have the time for? Pick one out together and have everyone make the same craft. I hear wine enhances artistic abilities 😉
Slumber Party: O to be young again! Adult sleepovers are probably the most under rated thing of the century. All of my friends know that I am a huge proponent of these. Invite the girls over, make a pallet to watch movies, and bust out the wine and chocolate!
Spa Day: Can’t get away for an entire night? Plan a spa day complete with manis, pedis, massages and girl talk! All girls know it’s way more fun to do these things when you are not alone!
The common theme with all of these things? Wine and your best gals 😉

New Year’s Eve is the one night a year that it’s socially acceptable to wear sequins from head to toe, in my book at least and most years I take FULL advantage of this occasion. If you are headed to a party, these party pants (which are actually leggings) are such a fun and comfortable option. Don’t worry I took them for a test run and they are dance proof so busting a dance move or two in these bad boys won’t be an issue!
While sequins are a fun and festive New Year’s tradition, I know that they aren’t for everyone. So if you want to ditch the sequins and still get dressed up for the occasion, there are plenty of ways to do so! I’ve styled 4 different outfit choices below that will add a little bit of sparkle for the big night. I’d love to hear your favorite out of the bunch!
