My Skin Care Routine: Bye, Bye Adult Acne!

I’ve received quite a few messages lately about my skin care routine. This is actually a subject that I’m really passionate about because I struggled with my skin for years! As a teenager, I never had a problem with acne, but as soon as my college years hit, I couldn’t escape it. Every week, I would get a new spot on my cheek or my chin and they always left marks. It took me almost seven years to figure out what worked best for my skin. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on face products, so I tried every drug-store brand you could think of. Along the way, I developed acne scars and a huge insecurity of being in my bare skin. I never wanted to leave the house without make-up on. View Post

Peek Inside My Planner: Transcending Waves

My life has been all over the place lately. I’ve been traveling non-stop, getting married, trying to be the best dog mom I can be… you know, the usual. Plus, I have a super short attention span, so it’s easy for me to go an entire day without actually accomplishing anything. I start a million projects and finish maybe one a day. My husband calls me a squirrel. I also like to think this is why I don’t text anyone back. But, anyway… I realized that I needed to find a planner. View Post

Easy Protein Açaí Bowl

Living in California has definitely brought out my desire to eat healthy and fresh. There’s really no excuse not to here; the soil in California can grow just about any fruits and vegetables known to mankind. There’s fresh produce and seafood available everywhere. I’ve quickly realized that there are a few foods that you can find on just about every corner: sushi, poke bowls and my new favorite snack – açaí bowls! View Post

That One Time We Almost Went to Sundance

I’m sure most of you saw my endless Instagram stories a couple of weeks ago about our adventure to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. For those who haven’t, let me fill you in.

Fiancé received an invitation to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, which is the largest independent film festival in the United States. We both immediately got excited because he has always wanted to go to Sundance and I like sun and dancing! That’s what they do there, right?

The event was in two weeks. Our excitement faded quickly when reality set in because oh, by the way, we were the parents of two dogs, whom we were responsible for. We also had guests coming into town to stay with us that same weekend (my soon-to-be brother-in-law and his lovely girlfriend). They would be staying for a week following the festival, but we still wanted to spend as much time with them as we could. Was the idea of going to the festival impossible? Should we just stay home? No way. We could definitely work it out. We would bring the dogs with us – easy! They do great on planes. It would be a quick weekend trip. They could play in the snow! I could get them little booties and snow jackets and they’d have a grand ole’ time. Plus, we could make it home the morning after the in-laws arrive, so we wouldn’t miss spending time with them. The perfect plan! So we thought. Our fun journey to get to Sundance ended up becoming an obstacle course from hell. View Post
