Mini DeLites: Weekend Recap

The Skinny Confidential talks diet and fitness.The Skinny Confidential talks diet and fitness.
Hi, hi, hi,

How you guys doing?

I hope your weekend was amazing!

Mine started with my little sister, Mimi’s graduation. We celebrated her big day with friends & family. She was just the cutest little thing ever. Very proud of her.

Then on Saturday I woke up & did TSC Bombshell Body Guide & walked the dogs to grab a green juice ( so wild, lol ). Afterwards we met some friends for brunch at this cute spot called Claire’s in Del Mar. If you’re ever in the area get their lemon ricotta pancakes & BE PREPARED TO DIE HAPPY. I also had this egg scramble that I made up: 3 eggs, jalapeños, bell peppers, white onion, & goat cheese. Lately I’ve been serioussssssly into goat cheese. It’s so good for you ( will do a post soon ) & it really goes with anything. I may or may not have added a little to my lemon ricotta pancakes.

And then for our main part of the weekend…SANGRIA:

Ok so we went to an event at The Del Mar Fair hosted by Eppa Sangria. It was so perfect because the sun was shining, the iced sangria was flowing ( huge fan of red sangria over ice! ), & the whole shindig was in a super cute room ( leaves, white, pops of color ). They also had a Pix Photo Booth which I made Michael test out. I swear photo booths now-a-days have like the best lighting/features/etc ( babe: feel free to install one in my room, thx ).

Eppa Sangria also had hand massages, samples of organic beauty products, & the most delicious sangria. I’m already planning a summer sangria party with red sangria & white sangria/berry filled ice cubes.

Also, I’m super excited because they are holding a Summer of Sangria Tour. All the tour dates can be found here. I can already imagine myself sipping chilled fruit Eppa Sangria now…yum!

Here’s a sneak peak of the photo booth fun:

After the sassy sangria event we headed to my cousin’s Mexican birthday fiesta with my family. Phew! Lots of celebration.

Anyways, Sunday was full of errands, work, a lot of dog walks, & house cleaning. Is it just me or is Sunday a total reset day?

Ok I’m off to watch Orange is the New Black ( SO GOOD ). X

Mini DeLites: TSC Takes DC

The Skinny Confidential takes Dallas.

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 ).

The Skinny Confidential takes D.C.

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

Mini DeLites: Through My iPhone

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.


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!

– Lauryn, xx
