Happy New Years to all of my beautiful blog readers!! Can you believe another year has come and gone? I think the older you get the quicker the years seem to pass. Anyways, how was 2017 for you guys? It was a pretty crazy, fun packed year for me. Derek and I got married, Kai turned 1, my bestie came to visit after 4 years and I hit 13,500 subscribers on Youtube!! Can not wait to see what 2018 brings.
We are kicking off the new year with a little picnic on the beach, but before we head out I’ll take you guys through my past week. Christmas was so much fun and brought so many presents! One of my fav things- these white leather converse sneakers. White sneakers are perfect with most casual outfits. I have my hubby to thank for these!
Derek was off work for half the week so we headed down to Harbor Drive to watch the Orange Bowl parade. America sure does love its parades. This one was for the college football game between Michigan and Washington. I didn’t realize how big college football is but it’s HUGE. Everything in the States seems to be on another level altogether.
Derek and I
We wanted to watch the parade but we hadn’t even had breakfast so we found a great spot at Carnitas Snack Shack. It’s an outdoor bar/restaurant at the Embracadero where alot of the bigger boats and cruise ships dock. We love this spot and it gave us the best view of the parade!
I also discovered a new Rosé I like. I think I was more convinced by the bottle. How pretty is this? Sadly though I think I’m going to have to scale back on the wine. Seems to be giving me a mild skin allergy lately. It’s so tough to know what you react to that’s why they say you should try an elimination diet if you are going through any auto immune issues. We did see a sulfite remover/aerator that we might pick up to see if it helps.
Ok so guys, I know this might not be exciting to you, but I beat Derek at Trivial Pursuit. This literally never happens. Derek is one of the smartest guys I know, like he knows almost all the answers when we watch Jeopardy. The only questions I beat him at are the science ones, go figure lol.
Another awesome thing happened, I got to finally try Derek’s infamous Green Goddess dressing! People at his work go nuts over his dressings and sauces and I can totally see why. It was the best salad dressing I’ve ever had in my life! I had it while editing videos for the week.
Saturday night we wanted to get out of the house for a bit so we headed to this dive bar we’ve heard a ton about called the Cherry Bomb. Literally has the nicest owner you will ever meet and the drinks are super strong.
For NYE we decided to stay in this year. Ok you guys know I’m a little extra sometimes so yes I went full glam even though we were staying at home. Makeup, hair and a red dress lol.
I’ve been using the Too Faced Cocoa contour palette as eyeshadow lately, seems to work pretty well. Paired it with the NYX glitter in Bronze and Velour lashes in Trust me Try it. For lips I went simple with Faux lipstick from MAC. Oh and the Happy New Year hairband from last year of course lol!
Would love to know what are you guys hoping to make happen in 2018?
