Braided Bun Dainty Gold Necklace Mom Style Lanterns in the sky Toddler Style Rise Festival Floating LanternsIf you’ve been following along for awhile, you know that I am all about easy hairstyles. There are those days when I honestly just don’t have the time to worry about my hair & let’s be honest, those days happen far too often over here. I thought I would share one of my new favorites ways to wear my hair & I hope you guys enjoy this easy braided bun tutorial as much as I do 🙂 Also, these photos were taken at The Rise Festival last year & I never had the chance to post them because I got so sick. This was the day that we found out I was pregnant with baby #2 & it was just so perfect to get to go send up lanterns into the sky. If you’ve ever seen the Disney film, Tangled, you know exactly what I’m talking about! If you haven’t seen that movie, let’s just pretend I’m not a 25 year old who still watches Disney films 😉

When we heard the blizzard was going to hit NYC, we were actually pretty excited. While most were trying to catch flights out of town or go into hibernation in their apartments, we were ready to have some snowball fights. This was the first NYC blizzard we have experienced while actually living here (duh, we have only lived here for 2 1/2 weeks) but it’s actually the second blizzard me & Adam have experienced here in NYC. It’s honestly incredible to experience because the whole city shuts down & you are able to just walk around in the middle of the streets while it’s snowing down on you!  We were staying in a hotel at this time so we would run outside & play for 10 minutes & then run back inside to get warm (our SoCal blood clearly isn’t used to cold weather :)) We had so much fun & will look back on these photos years down the road & remember our first crazy week living here in NYC with the best memories. I hope you guys enjoyed these photos & that those of you who experienced storm Jonas were all safe. Thankful the weather has warmed up now!

Four Seasons

Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara

Aviara Four Seasons Residence Club Residence Club Aviara BGAP8092 San Diego Resort Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara Carlsbad ResortThe weekend before we moved to NYC, we were lucky enough to have a weekend getaway at the Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara. I’m still dreaming about our stay & can’t wait to go back someday. The weather was perfect, the property was beautiful, the spa was luxurious & we ate the most amazing food all weekend long! If you’re looking to take a trip this Spring, check this place out because it will not disappoint. I’m going to break down everything we did & tell you all about my favorites below so keep on scrolling to read all about our trip!

*The Room:
We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa overlooking the golf course & it was absolutely beautiful. From the clean aesthetic of the decor to the beautiful rolling greens, it was glorious. The whole setup was one that made us never want to go home.

*The Service:
I honestly was blown away by how accommodating every member of the Aviara staff was! Not only were they willing to help in anyway possible, they were incredibly kind to our 2 year old, Kannon. It’s rare that you find an entire community of people that are that sweet to toddlers. Most places look down on bringing children & I was beyond relieved to see Kannon interacting with everyone at the resort! Plus, they have THE most amazing place for kids to hangout called, Club 760. They have Wii’s, puzzles, books, cars, movies & more to entertain kids of all ages. Kannon was in heaven!

*The Spa:
Who doesn’t love a relaxing day at the spa? The Driftwood Spa offers a plethora of services & the environment is very relaxing. I received the Mother to Be massage & I loved it. I also loved the products they sold. I bought a coconut Argan oil spray for my growing belly & have been using it everyday since! I can’t wait to go back & try out their different services when I’m not pregnant!

*The Food:
I think the food was my favorite part.. & that’s not just because I’m pregnant! We ordered room service both mornings as well as lunch one of the afternoons & everything we got was delicious. Here are my favorites from In Room Dining- Fresh juices (the orange & the green were my favorites), Buttermilk Pancakes with berries baked inside, Protein Power Smoothie, Grilled Cheese B.A.T. (We got it without the bacon).

*Seasons Restaurant:
This restaurant deserves its own category because it was THAT good!! They serve farm-to-table cuisine & literally every single thing we tried here was incredible! The menu changes with the seasons but trust me when I say, EVERYTHING is amazing. If I could eat here for dinner every single night of my life, I would!

I hope you guys enjoyed this little recap of our trip. Sorry it took so long to get it up for you all. With being so sick & then the big move to NYC, life was a bit hectic for a while. I’m so excited to be back blogging full time though & I can’t wait to create a ton of new content! Let me know if there is anything specific you want to see & I’ll get working on it 🙂

Sorry for being MIA! I’ve had very limited access to Internet or cell service & the posts I had scheduled to go live decided to malfunction! I swear something like that happens only when you are relying on it the most haha. All in all though, this trip has been incredible & extremely liberating. Being a blogger, we are constantly on social media/the Internet & I’m thankful for the time I had to just be with my family instead of checking my phone throughout the day. With that said, I’m so excited to start sharing some fun photos with you guys!

These photos were taken in Canada at Lake Louise, which is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to. It literally took my breath away & I continually stated the entire time we were there, just how pretty it was. If you’re looking for a place to explore in Canada, I highly recommend going here, you won’t be disappointed!!

On another note, how adorable is this fox backpack & dinosaur cooler!? When Kannon saw these, he got so excited & these were his two favorite choices. I honestly am obsessed with this brand & want everything they have. I secretly got this dinosaur for myself.. Cause lets be honest, cool moms carry dinosaur coolers! 😉 Plus, they have diaper bags & lunch boxes as well as backpacks & cooler bags so they’re perfect for both you & your little ones. I’m so excited I’ve teamed up with SoYoung to bring you guys an exciting giveaway on my Instagram tomorrow, so make sure you’re following along!!!

If you don’t follow me yet, head on over & start following so you don’t miss out on some fun photos!! I had the opportunity to spend the weekend with The Bay Club & other crazy talented bloggers/photographers & to say we had fun is an understatement! This was my first experience with The Bay Club & I honestly am obsessed. We got to attend fitness classes & do so many fun activities while we were there, it was the perfect weekend. I am so excited for the Los Angeles location to open because they have so many activities for all ages & there really isn’t anything like The Bay Club here in Los Angeles! I hope you guys enjoyed all of our photos from the trip! We were all definitely BAY CLUB HAPPY!! 🙂

Share A Coke Coca Cola Share A Coke Coca Cola Share A Coke Coca Cola Share A Coke Coca Cola Share A Coke Coca Cola Share A Coke Coca ColaConfession, I love all things that are customized. I may have done a happy dance when I opened up these custom ordered Coke bottles because they are literally the cutest I’ve ever seen! We had a picnic on the beach with some friends & these custom Coke bottles were a big hit with everyone (we had way too much fun if you couldn’t tell from the photos above 🙂). I love that you can customize these for anyone & have them at any party or get together. From a birthday party to a family reunion, they are the perfect addition. I also think they would be the perfect gift for anyone who loves Coke products in general! It honestly has never been easier (or more exciting!) to Share A Coke with family, friends, party guests, colleagues and more. Make sure you visit ShareaCoke.com to customize and purchase your own iconic eight-ounce glass “Share A Coke” bottles (trust me, you will love them!) Now I want to know, how do you celebrate sharable moments with friends and family!? Let me know in the comments!!

Rancho Bernardo Inn

Pool Day

Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn _ARI9917 Rancho Bernardo InnLast week we spent a few days at the Rancho Bernardo Inn & it was the perfect little family getaway! If you read this post last week, you have already heard a bit about our trip. It worked out to be a great Father’s Day present for Adam. In his words, “what better way to celebrate being a dad than getting to play with my son for 3 days straight!?” & that right there ladies & gentlemen is one of the many reasons I love him so much. I really lucked out in the husband department!

As I’ve said before, Kannon is such a little fish & just loves the water so much. Whether it be the bath, the ocean or a swimming pool, he is in his element. We honestly had so much fun having a pool day that none of us wanted to leave. I grew up in Arizona where the Summer’s are HOT to say the least & you were required to either be in an air conditioned building or to have a pool day so you didn’t overheat. So for me, a pool day with the family is always a fun time & brings back a plethora of fun memories growing up.

Don’t mind my glasses in the pool haha! My eyes are still recovering a bit from overuse of contacts so I try to not wear my contacts as much as possible. I will say though, that wearing glasses in the pool with a two year old who loves to splash is an interesting experience. I think I would have been able to see better without my glasses altogether as opposed to having water droplets covering the lenses the entire time 🙂 I hope you enjoyed our pool day photos & a little snippet into our trip. Love you guys!

If you follow along on Instagram, you know that we’ve been on a little getaway in San Diego at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. It’s always so nice to just getaway for a few days & we are so lucky to have so many incredible places to visit just a few hours away. The Rancho Bernardo Inn is such a beautiful property & so amazing for Kannon since they have a “Kids Rule” program! If you’re heading to San Diego this Summer, definitely check this place out because it’s perfect for everyone since they have a nice golf course, swimming pools, amazing food & an incredible spa! This week is already off to an amazing start & I can’t wait for the rest of it since it’s my birthday this weekend! Eek, I’m going to be 25!! Make sure you’re following along on Instagram for all of the fun celebrations 🙂

I’m so excited to recap our little getaway to the Surf & Sand Resort in Laguna Beach! As you all can see by these photos, the hotel is incredible. With breathtaking views, friendly staff & amazing food, we had the best time. If you’re looking for a place to stay in Southern California, I highly recommend checking this one out. We had Kannon with us & he loved it just as much as we did. We honestly never wanted to leave but then again, who can blame us!?

Splashes Restaurant: This is the restaurant located in the hotel. I had the pleasure of eating here for breakfast, lunch & dinner (not in a row :)) I loved every meal & if you are in the area, go stop in for a meal overlooking the ocean or lunch by the pool. The Belgian Waffle for breakfast was so good & I’m still daydreaming over the nachos I ate by the pool. Dinner is just absolutely incredible, Chef David Fune is insanely talented & I love his approach to imaginative & healthy food.

Aquaterra Spa: The spa might have been my favorite part of the whole trip. I went in for the Body Buff 90 minute treatment & it consisted of a full body scrub, a full body massage & a hot oil scalp massage. That may have been the best spa treatment I’ve ever had! I also enjoyed the jacuzzi & steam room after to relax even further & I loved every second of the whole experience.

Soul Project: I had the opportunity to head across the street & check out this amazing shop (& make custom tote bags with a photo that I took myself!) that has the coolest concept that you guys can read all about Here

Sapphire Laguna: We took a short stroll down the street to eat at Sapphire & I was blown away by the food. They have such an eclectic menu with foods from all around the world. Here are some of my favorites: Hong Kong Style Salt & Pepper Shrimp, Ricotta Gnocchi & for dessert, the Banana’s Foster Bread Pudding was amazing!

We honestly had the best trip to Laguna Beach & the Surf & Sand Resort. It was perfect in every way & we can’t wait to go back again one day!

 Last
week we stopped for a day in San Clemente on our way back from San
Diego & I honestly fell in love. I have been there before but
haven’t been in a while & I just want to move down there now. Kannon
was obsessed with the beach & pier (per usual) & we just had a
great time hanging out. I love the relaxed vibe that beach cities have! I
also love this white & black dress!
I love that it can be worn casual for a day at the beach but then dress
it up with a sweater or jacket for a night out. Versatile pieces are so
important to me these days because I’m really trying to get the most
out of my clothes & wear them in different ways. I hope you all had a
fab weekend & let’s all make it a great week!! Love you guys tons
