A Valentine’s Day Gift from You for You

Hello hello! I trust that you all are having a lovely week so far, I know I am! So far we have surfed, slept and spa-ed (new verb I just made up) our brains out and I could not be feeling more calm and happy. Tomorrow we are headed off to the Marietas Islands and hidden beach which I couldn’t be more stoked for (google it if you haven’t seen it all ready!). Anyways, back to business. Today I thought that I would share a little Valentine’s Day gift guide, but this one is special because it is to you…

Super Bowl Party Chex Mix

One thing that not everyone knows about me, is that I am a football FANATIC. I have been known to raise my voice over a miscalled play, and interrupt work meetings because my NFL mobile app gave me a notification. In short, the sport is one of my favorite things to discuss and something I do truly obsess over (fantasy football anyone?), but this year I am depressed to say that our return flight from Mexico is the same day as the Super Bowl so we will be missing out on the action (first world problems, I know.) The only…

In-Flight Cocktail Kit D.I.Y.

Hello, hello, hello. Today I am bringing you one of my favorrritee D.I.Y.s that I have ever done. I have recently been seeing a ton of these in flight cocktail kits like this one, and as cool as they are I really have no reason to drop that much money on something that is definitely not a necessity. However, when A’s birthday popped up a few weeks back I knew that this would be something that he would love. Being the classy man he is, he likes to travel in style when we adventure. Also he really likes drinking. All…

New Years “Resolutions”

When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, I think my aunt Tammy explained it best when she said “If you can’t change yourself during the rest of the year, why would the first of January be any different?” Not to sound like a downer, but the point is that if you don’t have willpower to kick a bad habit completely or start a good habit during the rest of the year, January probably won’t be any different. I am a huge advocate for creating healthy habits and lifestyle choices, but this comes with a mindset more than a set rigid…

Holiday Libations: Vanilla Cranberry Cocktail

What is a holiday without a few good libations, am I right?! Last weekend A and I threw an Ugly Christmas party and last minute, we thought it would be fun to add a signature cocktail to the menu and not just jello shots and mulled wine.  I made a version of this cranberry cocktail, but added some vanilla vodka to it and I must say, it fits deceptively well with our winter vibes despite it’s crisp, refreshing taste! It takes just a second to make and it looks so beautiful on a holiday tablescape (pictures of that to come soon!).…
