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!
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?
Happy February everyone! Valentine’s day is closely approaching and today I’m sharing trendy sweaters for 2020.

Today I’m also sharing other fashionable and affordable Valentine sweaters that you will fall in love with! Tell me about your Valentine Day plans below.
If you are thinking about starting a blog, you totally should! I have been blogging consistently for a year now and I love it. Personally, for me blogging is my creative outlet, I get to create content and tell my story in fact, any story I want.
If you don’t know my day job is I’m a casting director at Good Faith Casting in Arizona and LA. A casting director’s job is to find the right talent for auditions and present the best actors to the director or client. What most people don’t know is that casting directors don’t get the final say on who should be cast. While I love casting I don’t get to make those creative decisions and that was a big reason why I wanted to create my own blog.
Like I said blogging became my creative outlet. It was something that I could do and control, yes I know I’m totally a control freak and probably why I could never be an actor! Blogging is more than taking pretty photos, it’s about telling a story. That story can be used to help others or just a place to vent.
Also blogging is a great way to meet new people and make new friendships. I think we can all agree as an adult making friends is so hard so it’s nice that the blogging community has been really welcoming to me.
Finally, the best part of blogging is you can blog ANYWHERE. Not many jobs or hobbies allow this kind of flexibility. I have had some great collaborations while I travel too. I am able to pitch to companies all across the US, which is really exciting.
Blogging is what you make of it. If you put in the work you can really grow your blog fast or it can be the escape people are looking for. Again if you have ever thought of starting a blog or youtube channel, just start! I really wish I had started sooner, not only is it fun but you make friends and have a creative outlet.
Social media, especially Instagram has become a highlight reel. This means people not only will post the most perfect photos but a lot of work goes into creating these “sets” or “allusions”.
I’m not here judging anyone, trust me I get it and I’m 100% guilty of staging or taking a million photos just to get the perfect shot. But I want to stay humble and show the reality of some photos and that life isn’t always picture perfect. So enjoy some of my blog bloopers of 2019!
Hangry blogger. The running joke between my sister and I, is that she won’t feed me “the blogger” till we get the shot. Once I eat I get sleepy so we will shoot a ton of content then eat once it’s all done.
2. When the background doesn’t always go as planned.
-this photo was a hard one to get the shoot because it was crazy humid in a black leather dress plus we had to wait for the crosswalk say walk then run into the middle of the street take a few photos and then run back!
-Had the idea to take cute farmhouse winery photos only to realize the outhouse was literally pointing at me!
3. Half the photos I take my eyes are always closed!
4. Having long hair and dealing with crazy Arizona heat or Washington DC humidity is always a mess.
5. Forgot to smile for the camera
Here are a few more random bloopers from the year!
-Not allowed to eat the food till after we get the photo!
– Tried to take a blogger “fall leaf photo”, defiantly was a fail!
Last but not least, my favorite photo with Marley! He does not like taking photos or videos. I swear as soon as he see’s a camera he turns his head but instead he gave us a very sassy look for this photo!
I love going through and seeing all the bloopers, and it’s a good reminder that life is not picture perfect. But I guess the more photos you take the better chances you will get just the right shot. I hope you all enjoy the rest of 2019 and I will see you in 2020.
Well, Halloween is officially over and in my mind, that means the holidays begin! Thanksgiving is very late this year, November 28th which means after Thanksgiving it will be less than 30 days before Christmas. I’m sharing 5 Thanksgiving outfits for women with a mix of casual and dressy options for your upcoming family dinners. As always I try to find outfits that are very affordable from places like Target, Amazon, Shein, and Walmart! Comment down below your favorite outfit.
Fall is just around the corner well at least everywhere except Arizona. Arizona is still 110 degrees outside but hopefully, soon the weather will cool down. Express already has so many great fall clothes that you can stock up on! I am very ready for sweaters, over the knee boots and fall colors! Check out 6 women’s fall outfits from Express.

Have you started thinking about what you are going to be for Halloween? Well, it’s never to early to start. Halloween is just right around the corner and this holiday is my jam! Every year my husband and I dress up and enjoy fun Halloween festivities. So I thought I would share some of the fun couples costumes ideas that we have done in the past. Hopefully, some of these costumes will give you an idea of what you want to be this year.
I had to dig up some old photos (we have been together 9 years and some of these photos are old so please forgive the quality).
50’s Couple Costume
2. Fred and Daphane from Scooby-Doo
3. Kissing the War Goodbye- Sailor and Nurse costume
4. Dentist and Tooth Fairy Costume
5. Dalmatian and Firefighter Costume.
I was supposed to be a dalmatian and Rob was a firefighter but a lot of people thought I was a cow!
I am a big fan of True Blood and Vampire Diaries so we had to do a simple vampire costume, I mean come on it’s a classic.
Now the real question is what should Rob and I be for Halloween this year? Comment down below with any ideas.
