Mini DeLites: One & Only Palmilla

Ahhhh. Vacation feels good.

Like, realllll good.

Michael & I have been definitely celebrating but we’ve also been working out every.single.day to compensate for the extra food intake ( I mean…can anyone pass up popcorn soufflé?! I’m doing extra lunges for that deliciousness any day ). And let’s face it, spending time away from phone has been nice but I gotta throw in an Instagram here & there. I’ll be blogging the whole time I’m here through Insta too.

Anyway I feel like everyday life gets super crazy & sometimes you forget to really, seriously enjoy each other.

So. That’s what we’re doing. Enjoying each other. That means: making fun of Michael because he really does not know how to apply sunscreen ( like, is it necessary to leave globs of white shit everywhere? OUCH. ), talking about the future, sleeping in the afternoon, bubble baths, chill music, chips & salsa, laying around like slobs, & def sipping some wine. FYI: we’re staying at the One & Only Palmilla ( << which I highly recommend ) and then going to another hotel later today.

Like I said vacation feels good…but naturally, I miss Pixy. She’s in San Diego having a sleepover party with two chihuahuas & a mini poodle…#spoiled.

Will keep you guys updated throughout the trip! xx. L

Traveling Essentials & Other Ramblings

Hi from Cabo!

Eek! Michael and I are down here to celebrate our engagement…& honestly I could not be more excited. I mean, WTF’s not to love about Cabo? Ginger margaritas, a good book, sun ( with tons of SPF! ), & a lil romance.

Naturally on the flight over, I told Michael he had to turn on his ‘Romance Card’ ASAP…so we’ll see how that goes. Hopefully it’s on & ready. LOLZ.

You guys all know I love/love/love Cabo. If I never traveled anywhere other than Cabo, I’d seriously die happy. For some reason the second I step off the plane, I feel completely relaxed ( <<—- ha! So rare!! ). I’m always joking that they lace the air with gnarly Xanax.

For the past couple months I’ve been working a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. Think day & night ( late nights…think 2 am ) so a break from reality is welcomed. Entrepreneur life is no joke & I want to keep evolving with my business. So anyway, whenever I’m at my favorite destination, I always really, really try to put away the electronics & enjoy the serene surroundings in a teeny, weeny bikini..

Packing is a Bitch…So Make Your Life Easier With This Lil Guide

The Skinny Confidential talks packing tips.

Ok, we can all agree on one thing, right?

Packing is a real bitch.

& don’t even get me started on unpacking.

Anyway.

Here’s some of my must-have-or-I’ll-die-a-painful-death-necessities when it comes to travel.

In my bag to Dallas, TX:

The Skinny Confidential talks packing tips.

White oxfords are my jam. They’re so cute & can be worn with anything. Just make sure you pack them in a box or a handbag bag because they will get dirty & no one likes dirty, white shoes.

The Skinny Confidential talks packing tips.This clutch is so good it hurts. Why? Because you can use it for a carry on bag, a purse at night, & to hold your chihuahua ( kidding, kind of ). I love this because it goes from day to night. MEOW.

AHHH! Kabuki’s save my life. They’re the ultimate blender & seriously give you that dewey, not overdone make up look. Every girl needs a good kabuki.

This is where the magic happens. I throw all my carry-on items in my leather backpack & I’m ready to rock. This backpack is super airport-friendly.

Eye masks are your bestie when it comes to flying. When you’re high in the sky, it’s dehydrating. So do yourself ( & anyone around you ) a favor & use depuffing eye mask. There’s a version that all the celebs have been using that are $110 bucks…um, thanks but no thanks. These will run you $6 dollars & seriously have the same exact results.

& if you’re anything like me & have black, puffy circles when you fly ( << boo ), use these & thank me later.

SUNSCREEN! IS! GOD! I’m so annoying about sunscreen that I annoy myself. This unscented brand is one of my favorites & it’s overly gooey ( yuck ).

Some Springtime Obsessions…Like, Seriously-It’s-Prob Kinda Obsessions

The Skinny Confidential talks springtime.

I love black and white…everything.

I really, honestly can’t help it.

So the other day I had a one of those moments ( I know you alllllll can relate on this one ) where I walked over to my closet & threw every single item on the floor that wasn’t black or white. And then I asked myself: “are you actually really going to wear this?” I’m always trying to justify clothes that need to get out of my closet ASAP. For instance: ‘I may need those khaki pants because I possibly could go camping.’ Like, no- it was time to get real. I’m not going camping anytime soon so buh-bye khakis.

& hello clean, mostly black & white closet.

Anyway, here’s what I’m dying over for spring & summer:

The Skinny Confidential talks springtime.

1.} White pumps get me. If I were a shoe, I’d for sure be a white pump. They’re so hot with jeans, a summer romper, &/or a super long maxi.

2.} Jumpers!!! Ahh. They’re so fun for a date night or a girl’s night out. I feel like they’re super chic but doesn’t give off that ‘I’m trying too hard vibe.’ This Flynn Skye one stole my heart ( plus it’s on sale on Shopbop ( << my absolute favorite store ) for the next two days for 25% off, woot-woot ).

3.} I can’t deal when I go on a spontaneous road trip & have a crappy bag. This weekender bag is under $25 bucks & literally is to die.

4.} A crop top x a maxi skirt are my go-to. Jessica Alba just rocked the hottest crop to the MTV Awards, so I’m all about the crop + a sexy skirt.

5.} WWOD? AKA ‘What would Olsen’s do?” They’re all for nude nails & a fierce lip lately. I’m loving this polish shade called ‘Spin the Bottle’ & this lipstick called ‘Candy Yum-Yum.’

Anything I’m missing? Tell, tell.

X.

P.S. a lot of this swag is from Shopbop…& they’re having a maj sale. Check it:
