As the old saying goes… everything is better with bacon.
I mean seriously. Think about it. Cheeseburgers, salads, eggs, breakfast burritos, even chocolate chip cookies. All better with some bacon.
Now that it’s summer, I avoid cooking in the house at all costs. Not only does it make our house a million degrees, I like the excuse to hang out outside and fire up the grill. We love bbq’ing and I’ve made an effort to work on my grilling game.
Doug is basically my child. Not basically, I consider him my baby. He goes everywhere with me, sleeps next to me, eats next to me. Tony and I are borderline obsessed with him. He even has his own fancy dog couch in our room that he rarely uses.
Most of the time, when we’re traveling, Doug comes with. He’s even been to Mexico, twice! We’re huge fans of hotels & restaurants that are dog friendly. I’m especially impressed when they go above and beyond to welcome pups. If a restaurant has a dog menu, there’s no way we’re leaving without ordering Doug a meal.
I’ve been working on rounding up my favorite restaurants, hotels, things to do & bucket list ideas in San Diego. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite dog friendly spots in downtown San Diego!
Summer is finally here, so I’ve rounded up a handful of my favorite beauty finds! The babes over at Revolve sent a bunch of their top beauty picks and I did what any normal girl would do, I opened everything up and gave myself an at home spa day to try everything!
They sent over some must-have summer beauty essentials to keep my complexion soft and glowy. Plus, a some low-maintenance makeup products so I can spend less time in getting ready and more of my day lounging by the pool or beach.
One of the most common questions I get asked is why I started blogging. Fun fact, it was an accident!
At no point in my life did I ever anticipate becoming a full time blogger. Until the last few years, I was just making it all up as I went. Stumbling into new career options and opportunities.
The better question is… how did I become a blogger. And part two, why am I blogging today.
So grab a cup of coffee or tea, get cozy on the couch (or prepare your pop socket for some scrolling while you’re laying in bed). Because I’m going to tell you a little more about the journey I took to becoming and full time blogger and some of my upcoming goals!
About 10 years ago, I got bought myself one of the most expensive gifts ever. To this day, I can’t remember the last time I spent $400 on myself in one transaction. I was working my butt off, in college & barely making any money. But I remember the day I got a major commission bonus clearly. I didn’t go to Nordstrom to buy an expensive handbag or shoes, I went to Macy’s (because they have the best kitchen deals) and bought myself a stand mixer.
I recently posted a poll on my Instagram asking what copycat recipe you guys wanted to see and the winner was clear. Taco Bell won by a landslide. Which totally makes sense. Taco Bell has always been my favorite fast food chain. So when it comes to creating mouth watering, insanely amazing fast-food recipe concoctions, Taco Bell always comes out on top. Let’s take a second to appreciate the glory that is the Crunchwrap Supreme. It’s basically the work of an artistic food genius. Continue Reading
I have a confession to make… I’m the queen of Disaster DIY’s. You know when you see something on Pinterest and think, that looks easy and awesome, I should try it? Yea, that’s me. The only difference between ME & Pinterest ME is that most of my crafts end up looking like I had one too many glasses of wine and fell asleep holding the glue gun.

Random fact: I’m allergic to wine. Ok, not actually wine itself. But I do have a terrible sulfite allergy. Sulfites are a common additive in many foods and drugs. Sulfites also occur naturally in some foods. They’re used frequently to prevent spoilage and preserve food & drinks. A lot of times, they’re used in condiments, dried fruits & vegetables, pickled vegetables, frozen shrimp & shellfish, bagged vegetables, beer and wine.
Sadly, some of us are allergic to sulfites. For instance, when I drink wine that has sulfites in it I break out in hives, get super congested and have trouble breathing and swallowing. It’s no fun.
