  • My Current Hair Care Favorites

    Today I’m sharing my current hair care favorites, the products that I use daily/weekly.  These are the ones I keep buying again and again.  Here are my current go-tos: Hair Care Favorites- Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatments Davines Minu Shampoo– This is a moisturizing shampoo, but it won’t weight down your hair or leave residue. Matrix Oil Wonders Micro-Oil Conditioner– I use this conditioner daily, it very moisturizing so I only add it to the ends of my hair. Aveda Clove Conditioner– I use this color depositing conditioner on my hair every few days.  I find that this conditioner isn’t very moisturizing so I use at the same time to the Matrix Oil Wonders Micro-Oil Conditioner.   amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo– I don’t use dry shampoo very often because I like to wash my hair everyday.  On the days that I don’t wash my hair, this is great.  My hair can… Read More

  • Tequila Lemonade aka the Eveleigh Lemonade

    I love cocktails with tequila, but I have to admit sometimes I get tired of just having margaritas or a tequila and soda.  I have been in search of a new tequila drink.  Then I remembered a drink called the “Eveleigh Lemonade”, which is basically a margarita with lemon and honey instead of lime and agave nectar. I first was introduced to this cocktail at it’s namesake restaurant The Eveleigh in West Hollywood, CA in 2012.  I’ve been in search of the recipe for this drink ever since and I finally found it on the Imbibe Magazine site.  What makes this drink interesting and different is the chamomile and lemon infused tequila and the use of the aperitif Cocchi Americano.    So, what exactly is Cocchi Americano?   Well, according to Wikipedia: “Cocchi Americano is a quinine-laced aperitif wine produced by Giulio Cocchi Spumanti in the Asti province of Italy. Cocchi Americano is a variety of Americano. The wine was developed by… Read More

  • Monterey Tides Hotel Review, Monterey Area Hotel

    I recently spent two days at the Monterey Tides Hotel in Monterey, California.  As some of you might know, I grew up in San Jose, California so my family would often drive south to Santa Cruz and Monterey for day trips.  I always remember passing by this hotel on the way to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium as a kid.  It was a Best Western then and now it is a more upscale Joie de Vivre Group owned hotel.    I fell in love with it’s beachfront location and thought that it would be a fun place to stay, now as an adult I finally got the chance to check it out.   My first experience with the Monterey Tides Hotel as an adult was getting breakfast with my family a couple years ago and being pleasantly surprised by the renovations and the good food.  A made a mental note… Read More

  • Sanctuary Beach Resort Review, Monterey Area Hotel

    My husband and I spent three days and two nights at the Sanctuary Beach Resort in Marina, CA, just north of Monterey, CA.  We had a wonderful time and I would definitely recommend it for people that are looking for a quiet, restful, low-key get-away.   We were there at the end of March, which was during spring break so there were several families on the property, but it was still very quiet and tranquil. One of the nice things about the resort is that it has lots of Adirondack chairs overlooking the ocean so that you can watch the sunset in the evening.  They even do a bonfire every evening which was fun… and to top it off, the room has a s’mores kit with everything you need for the perfect evening around the fire.  The resort does have a pool and hot tub so that you can relax even when… Read More

  • Product Review: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick

    Today I’m reviewing the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick.  I originally purchased this foundation for a recent trip to Washington DC.  I wanted to do carry on only and I needed to reduce the number of liquids in my bag.  I did a lot of research on stick foundations that are suitable for oily and acne prone skin and they are few and far between. Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick is one of the only oil free foundation sticks, so I thought I would give it a try.
