Mini DeLites: TSC Takes DC

The Skinny Confidential takes Dallas.

The Skinny Confidential takes D.C.

GEEZ. I feel like I haven’t had a moment to breath. Lately it’s been go, go, go non-stop.

I’m not complaining, just ready for a weekend that’s filled with doing nothing but reading, watching TV ( very much into Curb Your Enthusiasm lately ), & spooning my chihuahuas, ya know?

Firstly, we went to DC a week & half ago and loved it! What a spectacular city!!

Whenever Michael & I travel we try to find charm everywhere. So we want like the most charming coffee spot, or a pizza joint that is the least tourist-y spot ever or even a craft cocktail bar that makes insane drinks!

Even though we avoid touristy spots ( or at least try to ) we still like to see the cultural aspect of each city, so of course we went to some Monuments & Memorials, The Capital, The White House, etc.

…We even went to The Spy Museum & stopped at Shake Shack for a burger & those tasty little crinkle fries ( just for the record: In-N-Out is WAYYYYYY better, no competition ).

Some of the charming spots we found: Le Diplomate ( bomb brunch ), Barcelona ( spicyyyy mussels x Brunello & I’m good to go ), JRINK ( GET READY TO DIE: ACTIVATED CHARCOAL LEMONADE…HELLO HANGOVER CURE!! ), and il Canale ( amazing pizza x ice cold Peronis!! ).

We took a lot of you guys’ recommendations from Instagram & Snapchat too!! I even met some of you while walking through Georgetown which was fucking cool. The Internet makes life feel like a small world sometimes, huh?

My event with Palm Breeze was Monday night & it was so cool to meet everyone who came out!! I cannot tell you how much it means to me to connect with women around the country! I LOVE it.

& just for shits and giggles: Michael was sitting on his iPad because he didn’t know what to do with a bunch of women who were drinking pink umbrella drinks, getting a blowout. LOL.

Anyway! DC was a success! We’ll be hosting a party in Dallas & Austin in two weeks, so if you live there COME SAY HEY, K? Blowouts, babes, bubbly…you know how I do.

Also, does anyone have any charming, non-tourist-ish spots to check out in Texas?!

mwah! lauryn x

I’ve gotten REALLLLLLLL into Snapchat lately.

It’s a way to connect with you guys in real time & it’s so raw and unedited.

I LOVE IT.

Is anyone with me on this?

Literally. I can’t stop snapping. My little sister who’s 17 tells me ‘I’m funny on it,’ which is clearly code for ‘you’re not doing it like the high school cool kids.’

Whatever, lol.

( by the way, add me! haha…username is laurynevarts )

Anywayyyysss, this weekend was spent in LA. We moved the last of our stuff into our new place & brought the dogs up for a little visit. They were charming as ever & barked the entire time ( our neighbors already love us! ).

Highlights of the weekend: my parents came up to see our place, Michael & I set up our bar ( & enjoyed Campari sodas!, & we may or may not have ‘Postmated’ In & Out…at 11 pm.

If you haven’t checked out Postmates you’re missing out on life ( this isn’t sponsored, I am just obsessed ). It’s basically an Uber but for food. ANYTHING, ANY TIME, you want to EAT? Someone will deliver it straight to your door.

So ya, an In & Out burger ( protein style with onions & animal sauce ) was necessary.

Also, the picture in the wedding dress was my lousy attempt to try on dresses for like ten seconds. Will keep you updated on the whole wedding thing but I still haven’t really started!!

Any tips for wedding dress shopping?

I’m kind of Clueless Connie on the subject if we’re being completely honest.

Happy Monday guys!

Guess what?!

I, Lauryn Evarts, am really actually, seriously/seriously trying to go to bed earlier.

STRIDESSSSSSssss.

If I’m being honest I’m a creative kinda night owl.

The kind that stays up super late & works into the night.

As you guys know Michael’s not a fan of late nights on the comp.

SO.

I’m trying to get better about it.

{ gypsy turban vibes }

Really I am.

Last night I went to bed at midnight which is LIKE A BIG-ASS DEAL.

The night before I went to bed at 12:30 AM.

This is much better than my previous 2 AM bedtime, guys.

Much, much better.

And I know optimal sleep hours are around 10 PM so I’m a horrible example for everyone.

Anyway, this weekend we’re going to LA to move more stuff into our home…oh & MOVING FOR THE PAST FOUR MONTHS HAS BEEN SOOO FUN.

::sarcasm::

To say I’m happy the whole moving in together thing is almost over, is an understatement of the year/my life.

Some of you have asked me about my living situation: we’re living half time in Los Angeles & half time in San Diego, which will be crazy but hopefully fun? I’m excited because during the whole process I’ve been filming a bunch of videos on “how to move in with a man ( but really, I’ve learned it’s an art )” AKA mix masculine with feminine.

Let’s hope I can move this weekend’s bedtime to 11:30 am? Doable? I think so!

What’s your bedtime AND WHY? WHY/WHY/WHY? I know that sounds weird but why is that particular time your bedtime? I know, I’m nosey.

Happy Monday! – Lauryn, xx

Indulging In Alone Time

The Skinny Confidential talks alone time.

The Skinny Confidential talks alone time.

So when I was in Sedona, Arizona I realized I had needed to have more me time.

Like, time by myself without anyone, kinda me time.

I couldn’t remember the last time I had had time by self.

So I decided to make a list of ways I like to spend time alone ( weird, but sometimes a visual works for me ):

The Skinny Confidential talks alone time.

1.) Go outside: this includes taking a walk, listening to a podcast ( latest favorite: Serial ), walking the dogs, going for a run, &/or working out outside. I also love going to the Farmer’s Market & picking out some flowers. Flowers make me happy! Putting flowers around the house & kind of designing them all pretty is another fun alone time hobby.

2.) Enjoy dessert: ALONE! Sometimes it’s nice to have a sweet treat like a piece of dark chocolate. I had some leftovers from my Galentine’s Party so I totally dipped in to my dessert fund & chilled out on the couch, watched some “Real Housewives,” & enjoyed a Skinny Cow chocolate dipped ice cream bar in vanilla almond crunch ( thank God for the nuts x chocolate! ).

3.) Light a candle: along with dessert, I like to light a candle, turn on music, grab a sweet treat, & chill out. Usually this will include a book & some Brazilian music. Reading is one of my favorite things in the world to do. Hanging out with my puppies while I read, with a little music, a little chocolate (my current fave is the Skinny Cow ‘blissful truffle’), & a candle is HEAVEN.

4.) Go to a restaurant: ALONE! LOL. YESSSS. The other day I grabbed an iced coffee & headed to True Foods for a little kale salad, street tacos, & computer time! Nothing like eating alone at a restaurant : ). My favorite thing ever. Sometimes I’ll even play a card game like Solitaire by myself too!

5.) Drink a cup of coffee & CHILLLLL: I loveeeee enjoying a cup of coffee ( with extra cinnamon please! ) by myself. There’s nothing better than sitting in peace with a delicious iced cup of coffee. Right now I’m sipping on Skinny Cow mocha latte creamy iced coffee. If anyone comes near my bubble when I’m relaxing with my coffee, I’m kind of a grouch.

How do you like to spend time alone?
