Staying Active With Your Kids

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

We are really trying to start this New Year off with a great start & being active is one of our main priorities. Goodbye holiday weight!

Our boys are obviously still quite young so our goal is to teach them to be active at this age & hope that it will stick with them throughout their lives. When being active is almost second nature, it makes it much easier to live a healthy lifestyle!

Honestly, getting our boys outdoors, running around & playing with them is one of my favorite things because they are just incredibly happy when they’re playing & out in nature. If you’re a parent, I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about! Kids are just meant to run & play! It’s not only good for their physical health but their mental health as well!

Now, I don’t know about you guys but we’re suuuper excited for the Olympics this year!! This will be the first Olympics Kannon can actually watch & understand so that makes it even more exciting for our household. He’s always fascinated by people playing sports & is obsessed with running fast so I can’t wait to see his reaction to these incredible athletes performing! With that said, we loved heading into Old Navy & picking out our favorite Team USA pieces. You guys know that we love Old Navy because it’s the perfect one stop shop for our whole family & new active wear was the perfect motivation for getting out & about! Plus, Old Navy is having an incredible sale (20% off everything today!) that you DO NOT want to miss! Seriously, it’s that good!

Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

I think we can all agree that this time of year is BUSY.

 

holiday party hair christmas party outfit

So much so that most days I feel like I’m running around all day long & still haven’t finished my to-do list! Between Christmas shopping and get togethers with friends & family, who has time to think about their wardrobe? Not going to lie, most days I’m in jeans & a sweater or worse, workout clothes when I haven’t even had time to workout! Don’t even get me started on how fast this year has gone by because I could ramble your ear off for a good 20 minutes on that topic alone. But seriously, where has this year gone!?

I figured since most of you are probably in the same boat as I am this holiday season that I would help out with some holiday party outfit ideas. Whether it’s a family gathering, gift exchange with your girlfriends or a work party, I think you will be able to find some inspiration from these holiday party outfit ideas. I can’t get enough of this blazer & need to find somewhere to where it ASAP! I received this stunning dress in the mail a week ago & I gasped when I pulled it out of the package because it’s that beautiful. I don’t think that you can go wrong with any of the pieces below though!
Which look is your favorite?

Into The Wild

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory
Our favorite time of the year has finally arrived! The temperature has dropped & we’ve already taken our second trip to the mountains. We headed a couple of hours out of LA for a little getaway in the mountains & it felt so good to get out of the city. We all are so much happier when we get outdoors, so I think you could say this holiday season is off to the perfect start!
family photo outfitsSince we would be in the perfect setting, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to take a few family photos. How adorable are all of my boys in their matching buffalo plaid!? I couldn’t resist these little Sherpa & plaid jackets for the boys from Old Navy. All 3 of them were so excited to be matching & I’m not exaggerating when I say that they’ve been wearing these everyday since they arrived because they are beyond cozy. They’re the perfect pop of color for these photos too!

I am obsessed with the Sherpa trend right now & Old Navy has the cutest pieces for the whole family. We’re already planning another trip to the mountains for more of an excuse to bundle up in these comfy pieces! Also, you guys might not be able to tell from the photos but these are the softest jeans I’ve ever worn & I legitimately can’t stop wearing them. I’m all about comfort AND style when it comes to our fall/winter wardrobes, it’s so important!

My Go-To Fall Trend

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

Guys! Ughhh I feel like over the past year I’ve been super inconsistent with content & I can’t apologize enough. I honestly just felt so lost with where I wanted to take this community we’ve created together & after we found out some crazy health news about one of my family members a year ago, I just felt like I needed to be with my family & spend as much time with them as possible. Quite honestly, the past year has just been filled with a ton of ups & downs health-wise for my whole family. You can read a bit more about that here.

BUT after a week spent in the mountains with my family, I feel energized & ecstatic for the holidays!

 I have so many ideas for content for the holidays I don’t even know how I’m going to squeeze it all in. There are just so many amazing things going on & I’m so excited to share it all with you guys!

Without further ado… Let’s talk about my favorite fall trend! Plaid is just my go-to. Whenever temperatures drop, a plaid button-up is the first thing I pull out of my closet. Usually, it’s just to wrap around my waist because even when temps drop here in LA, it’s a drop from 100 degrees to 70 degrees but I’ll take whatever cooler temperature Mother Nature will give me!

I figured if you guys are anything like me, you might want a couple new plaid pieces to add to your wardrobe. With that said, I’ve rounded up some of my favorites below & I can’t wait to add some of them to my own closet!

Now I’ve gotta know, what is YOUR go-to trend for fall!? Comment below for a chance to win a special little something 🙂

The Friday Five

819 1024 Sheridan Gregory

I asked you all on Instagram what kind of posts you wanted to see more of & the majority of you said that you wanted to see more of my favorites. & when I say the majority of you, I mean the majority of you! Thank you all for the feedback & post ideas, I hope you’re excited about new content every day during the week now!!

I decided to create this series (The Friday Five) so that I can share five of my favorite things/products every single week. I figured it was the easiest way for me to talk about the things I’ve been loving lately & consistently sharing my favorites with you all. I hope you guys enjoy this new series & will check back every Friday for a new post. Now onto the favorites!

Carli Bybel Palette Swatches

1.) Carli Bybel Palette
I have been loving this palette ever since I filmed this Tutorial/first impressions video. The formula of these powders is a buttery & they blend like a dream! It’s perfect for every skin tone & I love that I can use it in every season. Plus, you can’t beat the $22.50 price tag!

tarte marine boosting mist review

2.) Tarte Marine Boosting Mist
I am obsessed with face mists these days & never go a day without using one. Not even exaggerating either! I love that this one is a four-in-one & can be used as a primer, Makeup setting spray, hydrating mist & skin refresher. I have used this mist in all four ways & I can’t get enough of it. Also, for those of you with oily skin, this one doesn’t give you that overly glow-y look & doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Oh, & it smells amaaazing!

trader joes scandinavian swimmers

3.) Trader Joe’s Scandinavian Swimmers
My current favorite sweet treat obsession. Hands down my favorite gummies at the moment & that is saying a lot because I love a good gummy candy! I really should stop buying these because if they’re in our pantry, I’m going to eat them. Want to know how I spend most every Friday night? Curled up on the couch with Adam, eating these & watching Friends on Netflix. We have a riveting social life, we know 🙂

zara flower bag

4.) Zara Flower Bag
I can’t get enough of this flower bag & if you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that. I love the cross body chain & honestly, I get compliments every time I wear this. What’s not to love about it?

NYX Lip Cream Swatch

5.) NYX Lip Cream in Sable
I get asked what lip color I’m wearing every time I wear this so I figured I would share with you all. This is a matte shade but I like to layer it over my Clarins Lip Oil so that it glides on smooth & doesn’t dry out my lips at all. You better believe this will be my go-to lip color all Fall long!

White Dresses to Wear Before Summer Ends

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory
Who else is in denial that it’s the beginning of September?? I know I can’t be the only one!
Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t be more excited for sweater weather & all of the fun things that come with Fall. I’m just in denial that it’s already September because I’m not sure where this year has gone. I know I say it far too often but time goes by so much quicker the older you get!
Before the temperature cools down too much though, I wanted to share my favorite white dresses to wear before summer ends.
First up is this white dress. I know they say that you can’t wear white after Labor Day but that’s my favorite rule to break. (You better believe that I’ll be wearing my winter whites later this year as well!) In all seriousness though, I think that a beautiful white dress is one of the most classic Summer pieces & I 100% believe that everyone needs at least one in their closet. Let’s all pretend we’re frolicking through the South of France & get as much wear out of these beauties as we can.
What I’m Wearing:
Below are my current favorite white dresses!

Since the majority of questions in my Instagram DM box are about where I purchased items, I figured it would be easier to just do little Instagram recaps here & there. Let me know if you guys have any other questions!

Best Food Venice

Best Food in Venice, CA

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

We’ve been exploring as much as possible lately & one of our favorite places to go nearby is Venice. There is such a great vibe in Venice because there are so many different types of people in the area. We love to walk down Abbot Kinney for amazing restaurants & some of the cutest shops you’ll ever find. I’ll be honest though, when exploring any area, my favorite thing to experience is the food 🙂 So, I decided to share some of our favorite places that we can’t stay away from because they are THAT delicious!

Food Venice California

1.) Gjelina – This is a favorite of locals & visitors alike because the food & ambiance are incredible. This is perfect for meat-eaters as well as vegetarians, which is nice because there is something for everyone. I highly recommend the pizza but I don’t think you can go wrong with anything on their menu.

2.) Salt & Straw – I might have cried happy tears when Salt & Straw finally made its way to LA from Portland. This is hands down one of my favorite spots for ice cream! The Roasted Strawberry & Toasted White Chocolate, Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons and the Honey Lavender are just a few of my favorites. I have never known anyone who has tried this place & not fallen in love.

3.) Cafe Gratitude – Don’t be afraid of this plant-based menu! I honestly can’t get enough of this place & would eat here daily if I lived nearby. I love the Squash Quesadillas, Mexican Bowl, Veggie Burger & Corn Tacos!

4.) Moon Juice – One of my all-time favorite places for smoothies & juices. I love their Strawberry Almond Milk, Custom Smoothies & their different “Dust” has become an obsession, I use them almost daily at home! Pop in for a juice or smoothie & head down to the boardwalk/beach, you won’t be disappointed!

These are obviously just a few of my most frequented places in Venice because there are SO many more amazing places to dine but I hope you enjoyed hearing which spots are my favorite!

Jouer High Pigment Lip Gloss

Away With Jouer

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

There have been a few experiences over my blogging career that I’ve had to stop & pinch myself to see if this is real life. This trip to Ojai with Jouer Cosmetics was one of those experiences.

I don’t know if I say it often enough but I truly am beyond thankful for each & every one of you who take the time to follow along with the content I create. I wouldn’t be where I am today without you all & I never take that for granted. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.

I’m not going to lie, I haven’t shopped in American Eagle in years & years. I walked past the store in Century City here in LA & a few things caught my eye. I’m so glad I decided to go in because I fell in love with this matching set. It is the epitome of summer for me & I would wear it daily if I could! You can find it HERE.

jouer lip gloss swatch Jouer Lip GlossI received so many compliments on this Floral Dress & think it’s perfect for summer!

I had the most amazing little getaway with Jouer in Ojai. We stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn (if you ever go, you must have a spa treatment done! I had a massage & it was one of the best massages I have ever received!). They took a group of us to celebrate the launch of their new High Pigment Lip Gloss & guys, I am blown away by the formula! This is honestly the best formula I have ever tried for lip gloss. When they say that they are high pigment, they mean that they are high pigment. You can see just how amazing they are in this tutorial! I could go on & on about them because I truly love them that much BUT I will let the formula & pigmentation speak for themselves. If you’re curious, I have been living in the color Champs-Elysees 🙂

I just want to say thank you to the entire Jouer team. It’s rare to meet so many kind & incredible people in one place but they all are just beyond lovely. Thank you guys (especially Christina) for all of the support & love over the years. I appreciate it more than you will ever know!

It is nearly Summer & I can hardly wait! Although I’m still wondering how it’s already June!? Hendrix will be 1 this month & I honestly can’t believe how fast time has flown by! It’s also mine & my brothers birthday month so we will be doing a lot of celebrating over the next few weeks. Can’t complain about that 🙂 Onto jumpsuits though.. I’m sharing my favorite striped jumpsuits with you guys because they’re a Summer staple for me. You can literally just throw one on & be put together!
