BottleRock Napa Valley: PLATNIUM
June 1, 2022
Never in my life have I experienced something so spectacular. When MB told us she got us "super special wristbands" we had an idea what we were in for, but when we got there, it was so much more. When you arrive, you get dropped off in your own private entryway and parking lot, "Platinum Parking". You walk into what can only be described as an Alice in Wonderland walk-way that leads you to a bar where you pick up your champagne for your golf cart ride to the actual venue. It was at this point when we really realized, the food and booze were completely FREE with this Platinum status. INSERT -OMG- FACE!!
Budget Friendly Summer Wines under $10
August 4, 2021
I am a red wine drinker but in the summer it's too dang hot! So naturally I was drinking a lot of seltzers, until they started hurtingmy stomach really bad. Not even when I was drinking them, but when I wasn't. I was having pains, throwing up & not eating because it hurt too bad. I realized that's what it was, the overdoing of seltzers. So I switched to Rosé or Sauvignon Blanc! The good thing about these are good pinks & whites can be cheap AND good! So this weekend I chose 4 wines under $10! One of them is under $5!!! I did a taste testing & really loved all of them. I prefer a dry, flat wine which all of these are.

Hey there fashionistas, how's your summer going so far? I say summer because in Florida it's been summer for months already, and it is HOT! I have spent some weeks vacationing which in return, now I have a few extra LBs taking up residence in my mid-section. Oh well. In my 30s I have learned to love my body, be healthy but be accepting. I will never have a flat stomach, ever, but I love being curvy and I embrace it. That being said, shapewear has definitely become a fan fave for a lot of us out there. Let's put the bag stigma about shapewear to rest, it is not about hiding our curves it's about embracing and enhancing our best assets. I discovered Kiwi Kurves and fell in love with their shapewear and their mission.
Travel Diaries: St. Simons Island
June 3, 2021
Hi there travel lovers! Today I am doing a round up and review of my trip to St. Simon's Island. TBH, I never heard of it until my friend asked me to go. Apparently, a lot of people I know have heard of it and gave it rave reviews. I went with my bestie Amanda, her sister Sheila and "BIL" Ed. They rented a VRBO in the heart of the island .3 miles from the beach. It was an adorable 3 bedroom bungalow with a huge porch, screened in patio and a separate guest house, that is where we stayed. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about the property we stayed on. It was very tranquil and quiet, the perfect escape for a girl-on-the-go. When I arrived on the island on Sunday afternoon I noticed there were a lot of pretty moss trees, dirt roads and golf carts. It reminded me of a tiny shore town in Jersey. When you would drive onto the shore there was high grass with that stagnant beach water smell, it brought me back!
Travel Diaries: Scottsdale & Sedona
March 24, 2021
Sorry I have been MIA y'all. I just have not been motivated to write, if I am being completely transparent, which I am. But I thought doing a blog on Arizona would help get me going. I generally like to choose at LEAST one place to visit that I have never been every year. 2021 I am making up for 2020 haha, with already 5 trips booked :) The first one I took (aside from NJ) was to Scottsdale and Sedona, AZ. I have always wanted to go out there and I have a blogger friend who I have been chatting with for 2 years now. I knew she wasn't a serial killer or psycho bitch so I said hey Niki I am coming out, let's do it up.
