The time is FINALLY here!! Tomorrow, we are *embarking* on a week-long trip to California! We’ve been planning this trip for about a year now and I COULD NOT be more excited!
Where are we going? Well, first, we fly into San Francisco and meet up with two of our best friends who will join us on the trip! Then we’ll make the 3.5 hour car-ride (any playlist recs?) to Yosemite National Park! We have a full schedule of attending a good friend’s wedding (I’ll be wearing THIS DRESS), hiking, swimming, water-falling, tubing, frolicking in the meadows, walking through the tallest Sequoia trees and trying our best to stay away from bears. PROBABLY should not have watched The Revenant before this trip.
After Yosemite, we’ll make our way to Napa Valley for a 3-day stay in St. Helena to EAT ALL THE FOOD and DRINK ALL THE WINE. We rented a little house on a vineyard (!!) that’s tucked away in the hills of Howell Mountain (where some of Napa’s best grapes are grown.) We’ll definitely be popping into Model Bakery for their famous English Muffins (they are actually out of this world) and taking all the photos. So be sure to stay in touch on Instagram if you want to see how insanely gorgeous Napa is. And if you want to see how ridiculous I get when I drink multiple glasses of wine, tune into Snapchat. ;) ;)
So what does this mean for blog content? There will be a minimal noise here on the blog, however, I’ll try to stay active on social media…when we have signal. But if you find it quiet on those channels, TRUST I will be brining you all the photos when we get back.
Ok, a little summary of last week:
I got a few summer essentials from Banana Republic and styled them on the blog earlier this week! Which look is your favorite?
These shoes arrived in the mail from Ukies and have become my new favorite pair of flats (they’re SO comfortable!)
I shared all about two of my favorite new lipsticks from Lipp! And made my own custom color!
Have you seen this Illy Espresso Machine giveaway? Friends don’t let friends miss out on caffeinated contests.
I caved and ordered this belt from Cuyana (because HOW COULD I NOT?!)
This Buzzfeed article on breakfast toasts is giving me all the feels.
I did a little photoshoot (on the photographer side) with Wylie Grey that I CAN NOT WAIT to share with you!!
My friend Erin and I finally booked our Airbnb for a night in New York (SoHo, here we come) for the weekend after we get back from CA! Call me crazy. Because I am.
I ventured into 4-day hair territory (see how I do it in this post!)
Anyone else binging on OITNB? Can’t. Stop. Watching.
Last weekend, we went on a hike to gear up for our trip to Yosemite and I quickly realized how NOT READY FOR HIKING I really am.
And yesterday, this top that I purchased during the VETTA kickstarter campaign arrived in the mail! It’s perfect. I want to actually LIVE in it. Now on the hunt for all the high-waisted shorts to wear with it.
That’s it, friends! Have an AMAZING weekend!!
