Why is it during the holidays I find I’m buying more for myself than for others? Please don’t tell me I’m the only one, I can’t be right? Well even if you are buying a nice gift for yourself or someone in your family they will love this modern cutting board.
What I love about this cutting board by Hultzzzy it is a very high quality but also functional. Throughout 2020 my husband and I have been home a lot more this year and we have been trying lots of new recipes. This cutting board has a media slot barrier for your phone or tablet. This makes looking at a new recipes on Pinterest and cooking such a breeze.
It also has these handy acrylic trays that can make chopping and prepping very organized. Each weekend I like to prep/chop our veggies for the week and this cutting board has made it so easy. You just slide your chopped up veggies right into the tray. Overall anyone in your family who likes to cook or is just in the kitchen a lot would love this gift.
Hultzzzy is a local business in Phoenix, Arizona which just makes this an even more of an awesome gift idea. I love supporting local businesses throughout the year but especially this year, 2020 has been hard for so many people. Whether you are already a guru in the kitchen or just starting out, this cutting board will bring out the inner chef in you!
The Hultzzy graciously sent me their cutting board, but as always, opinions expressed on Hibbs Life & Style are independent and comprehensive. Bella Hibbs is the founder and CEO of Hibbs Life & Style.
Rob and I went on a much needed date night to The Mission AZ at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale, AZ. We had such a wonderful time and the food was absolutely amazing. If you ever find yourself in Scottsdale, Arizona I would highly recommend eating at The Mission AZ. I would make a reservation and request to sit on the patio, it’s beautiful. I want to remind you as we move into the holiday season remember to check in with yourself and loved ones. This year is going to be different to say the least and your health is top priority.
The temps are finally cooling in Arizona ( HA only took to late November) and that means sweater dresses! I got this adorable sweater dress off amazon for only $37. I was happily surprised with how good the quality was of this dress plus it comes in 8 other colors. You could easily wear this for a fun date night or even to Christmas dinner! This sweater dress is so flattering, you will look stunning. I got a size small and I’m 5’7″ and 140 pounds.
Faux leather leggings are one of the hottest fall/winter trends you will be seeing all over social media. Check out my fun Instagram Reel video showing how to style Faux leather leggings 4 different ways!
These faux leather pants are not only extremely comfortable but they can be dressed up or down. This makes for a great closet staple. I got my leggings from Carbon 38 but there are tons of other brands selling similar pants. Carbon 38 is technically workout clothes but these leggings are just too nice to workout in! I like these leather pants because they give you enough compression but you can still breath. I have been wearing these leggings ALL the time so it’s worth the investment.
These faux leather leggings are so easy to style! Just pick the vibe you are going for and add on from there. You can pick sneakers and a graphic tee for a more causal daily look or grab a pair of heels and blouse for a night out.
Plus these leggings are so comfortable, they are a great alternative to wearing jeans but still looking put together. I swear this leggings make any outfit look more chic!
This summer Rob and I had a wonderful time going to Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery in Washington state. It was so relaxing and great to get out of town. I found this fun dress at Target for only $50! I just thought it was so fun and bright I knew I had to wear it to the winery.
Not only was the wine delicious but Chateau Ste. Michelle did such a great job social distancing and still providing such a fun great experience. We did a wine tasting of all white wines and I even found a riesling that I totally loved! I’m typically not a huge Riesling drinker because it’s sweet. The Ste. Michelle Erocia is so perfect for the summer and isn’t sweet, I highlight recommend you give it a try. Finally, we were lucky the resident peacock came out to join us for some photo fun!
Last week we were so lucky to get to travel to Washington state and have a mini-vacation this summer. While in Washington we went to Woodinville to visit some of their wineries, which are so cute! Right now during COIVD-19 almost all the wineries do require a reservation but it’s still worth it. Wine tastings are one of my favorite vacation activities and we try to find new wineries in every place we travel too. So today I’m sharing 5 outfits that you can wear to your next wine tasting. Some outfits are casual and comfy to glam and girly!
I don’t know about you but I wear many hats at my job so I need products that work with my busy lifestyle. Most days I’m auditioning actors and models, but I am also teaching workshops and running my social media channels. So when Revive Superfoods reached out about their ready to blend smoothies, I was intrigued.
These smoothies have all the ingredients in the cup and all you have to do is add your preferred liquid and blend! I use almond milk to blend my smoothies and they taste great. They have tons of different flavors Pink Dragon, Grass is Greener, Matcha Maker plus so many more flavors. You can choose from 15 different flavored smoothies that are packed with fruits and veggies.
Theses smoothies get delivered right to your door each week or month. They are packed with dry ice to keep everything cold and fresh in case you’re not home to put away.
These smoothies are perfect for a busy morning or in-between work meetings. I just pour and blend, that’s it! Through their website, they have made it very easy to skip a month or cancel at any time. Also if you are interested in trying out new flavors you can always mix it up each week/month.
Revive Superfoods reached out to me and gave me an awesome discount code for my followers/readers of 60% off your first box with code “BELLAHIBBS60“. That means 9 smoothies for only $20.70!
Once you try them come back and let me which flavor is your favorite! Right now I’m loving this pink dragon smoothie!

Are you just as obsessed with planners as I am? I love planners and lists because I’m a super detailed oriented person. Evo reached out to me and asked if I would like to try their unique planner, I had no idea I would really click with this planner. Okay, let me explain what makes Evo more than just a planner. First you take a brain test on their website to figure out the best planner based on how your mind naturally processes information. Then you will purchase the correlating planner per your brain type.
There are 4 different brain types and I’m an architect which means I need order and balance to thrive! You can find your brain type HERE and get your brain report. Once you take your test (only takes about 5 minutes) screenshot your phone or computer and tag me on Instagram @bellahibbs! I would love to know your brain type.
Once you find out your brain type then you order that planner. All 4 planners are just a little different based on how your brain process information. I think this is so cool because my Architect planner is very list-oriented which I love but my husband who is an explorer has a different planner based on his brain type. Your Evo planner will be broken into 3 main sections.
Weekly Plan / Weekly Review
On your daily review you have a daily quote and you take a few minutes each day to think about what you are grateful for. According to Harvard Health Publishing, they say after 10 weeks, those who wrote about gratitude were more optimistic and felt better about their lives. In my architect planner I have a section for brain dump, this helps get ideas, thoughts or plans out of my head, pen to paper. Also each month you set a monthly ritual, this is something that you do each day. I choose to do 10 push ups a day.
As if this planner wasn’t already amazing it also has an interactive app. Each day and each week you scan your planner into the app. Over time it will track your progress and help you focus. Because this is more than just a calendar it only tracks 3 months at a time.
I have been using this planner for a couple weeks and I love it. It really keeps me accountable each day. Plus I love starting each day with a taking a couple minutes reflecting on what I’m grateful for. I’m excited to see how my productivity increase over time while I use the app and planner. Don’t forget to take your brain test and tag me on Instagram, again I would love to know your brain type. I can’t recommend this Evo planner enough, you will love it! If you are interested in getting your own Evo planner you can get 10% off by using the code “BELLA10”. Plus follow Project Evo on Instagram for productivity tips and upcoming webinars.

Easter is just around the corner! I’m very excited because this year my sister and her husband are going to come to Arizona for Easter, ( they live in D.C.). We are going to go to some of the local resorts in Scottsdale to have a fun relaxing weekend plus family time for Easter. I got this dress on Amazon for only $36 plus it comes in 3 different colors ( light pink, yellow and light blue, all perfect for Easter or spring). I love this dress from Amazon, it’s got pretty lace and is so flirty. While Rob and I don’t have kids, Rob has a 7-year-old nephew so we do an Easter egg hunt and lots of candy. Comment below what your plans are for Easter.
Valentine’s Day is just a few days away! Sharing this fun edgy and chic outfit that is perfect for a night out on the town. Last week I shared Valentine’s Day Sweaters but if you are looking for something a little bit more edgy and chic then this outfit is for you! This velvet and lace tank top I found on amazon and totally fell in love with the different textures. I’m guilty of not really knowing our Valentines Day plans this year, Rob and I both work so we might just do something low key this year. Comment down below with your Valentine’s Day plans?
