Sunday Bests: A Lot of Miles & Traffic

I might’ve spent 7 hours driving to Carlsbad and LA (twice). It was worth it for the most part, but I was exhausted by the end of the weekend. I’m currently writing this in bed with a face mask on while watching Matt Does Fitness. After a long day at work, I immediately drove to Carlsbad for the Dames Collective Launch Party. I changed in … Continue reading Sunday Bests: A Lot of Miles & Traffic

Sunday Bests: Last Week of Summer/One Last Tan

They served mimosas at the second baby shower, but I wanted “double crisp” fries from SOCIAL and since it was happy hour, got a paloma as well… followed by visiting a new brewery, … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Baby Showers

Rhine Getaway: Black Forest & Trip Recap

The Rhine We chose the Rhine Getaway this year with my aunt and cousin. We started in Amsterdam (extended our trip 2 days), Kinderdijk & Cologne, Marksburg, RĂĽdesheim, & Heidelberg, Strasbourg, the Black Forest, and Basel… but only for the morning. This was a big bummer for us as we hoped to see more of Switzerland; however, I expect it would’ve been expensive. Last year’s … Continue reading Rhine Getaway: Black Forest & Trip Recap
