Friday Finds – What I’m loving on the Web

Looking forward to a weekend at home in lieu of a work trip to Portland.  Called it off last minute because sometimes you just need to listen to yourself and take a break from being on the go.  So, here’s to a weekend soaking up some Venice sun and hanging with my pals.


Here’s what I was snooping on the web this week:

  • CANNOT wait for this opening.  Sweet tooth ready.
  • As a total addict ( proof on snapchat : ginaeagan) I found this article interesting and helped answer some questions I had.
  • Coffee in any form is a YES for me.  Iced coffee for sure.  Adding this list to my ever growing list of recipes to try.
  • I luckily moved straight to an off campus apartment in college but if I had a dorm, this would have been a dream.  Anyone have a sis, cousin, friend still living dorm life?
  • Fall apple picking is now a tradition, as is picking up a jug of fresh apple cider.  Not a huge cider solo person so this cocktail seems like a great way to use it.

Snaps – Weekend Happenings


Sharing a few snaps from the weekend.  Robbie took me away for a belated birthday celebration to Temecula.  Ponte Vineyard Inn was the perfect place to stay, walking distance to a couple other vineyards, and has on point restaurants.  Full recap Continue Reading

Apple Cider Vinegar Face Toner

I'm not consistent with a lot of my body products.  I like to switch things up depending on the look and feel of my skin. One exception that I use regularly is an apple cider face toner, especially near my time of the month. A few years back I Continue Reading


{ my awesome brother setting up }

Finished another trip around the sun last week with my birthday on Monday.  I spent most of the day traveling home from a work trip finishing the day with a family dinner at my parent's house.  My mom makes awesome pizzas on the BBQ.  I should get Continue Reading

Tried It – Love It!


I've had a Birchbox subscription for several years now.  I love all the fun samples and have narrowed my preferences to almost always receive samples of things I will actually use.  The teal nail polish and teas of the past weren't quite my thing. Continue Reading


the other room

Good morning, Monday.  Back from a relaxing, sun filled, beachy weekend.  We kept things casual Friday, dinner and a movie curled up on the couch, which is exactly what was needed after a crazy work week.  Saturday was spent the way it should be when Continue Reading

Summer Fun To-Do List

summer fun to-do

Now that we are well into summer, I thought this would be a good time to share a to-do list for summer fun.  I totally planned on sharing this a while back, but ya know, I didn't. I am a total "list" person.  If I write it down and see it, I Continue Reading

Snaps! Weekend Happenings

{ pitaya smoothie }

We arrived home Friday night from a week long vacation in Tulum, Mexico { recap coming soon }.  Coming home Friday was definitely not my idea.  I prefer to stretch vacation time to the very end, most likely booking my flight for Sunday night.  This Continue Reading
