“When passion meets inspiration, an obsession is born.”

To put it mildly, I am obsessed with Despicable Me and all things Minions. The moment I saw the trailer for Despicable Me 3, I jumped/screamed with joy. It is a franchise that makes me laugh and smile everytime. I will always be hooked and definitely going to be seeing Despicable Me 3 !

Yes Please #2: Glamour Magazine

I have been subscribing to Glamour since I was 17. I don’t remember a time where I wasn’t reading Glamour, I just fell in love with it because of the fashion, inspiring stories, lifestyle pics and Glamour represents supporting one another. Definitely go check out Glamour Magazine because it has something for everyone.

Yes Please #3: Kate Spade Notebook

I was in need of a new notebook for writing and I immediately gravitated to this one by Kate Spade at Paper Source. I love the quote on the front and the feel of the paper when I put my pen to it. I am always inspired everytime I open it.

Yes Please #4: Sun Hats

Sun Hats are perfect for summertime. Not only do they help protect from the sun, but can go with any outfit. They are one of my favorite summertime accessories. I have definitely accumulated a lot over the years. One of my favorite’s right now is my ‘Just Chillin’ tan sun hat from Sidecca and embroidered sun hats are very on trend for summer, which I love.

Here are a couple fun sun hats for y’all to shop 🙂

Yes Please #5: MLB x Vans Collection

There was no question when I saw this collection between MLB and Vans, I had to buy my team sneakers ! They are comfy, cute and can be worn with so many different outfits (always a plus). I love that every team is represented, whcih means that we all can support our teams 🙂 Be sure to check out your team and represent at Vans.

I had so much fun compiling this week’s Yes Pleases, stay tuned for next week !

A Getaway to Ventura with my Dad : A Restart to a Long Family Tradition

 

IMG_5063

Recently I took a vacation to Ventura with my awesome dad to recharge our batteries with a relaxing few days. We drove up the coast, rocked out to music and ate and dranks some great snacks (Boom Chicka Pop and Tejava Iced Tea). Our first stop was up to Ojai (not to far north of Ventura) for a delicious lunch and conversation. Of course I had to stop my dad to take some pictures, thanks again! We then enjoyed the surroundings of beautiful Ojai by exploring on foot.

It was an amazing, peaceful start to our bonding and relaxing trip. Now it was time to check into our beautiful hotel, Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach . It is officially one of my favorite hotels. Here are the reasons why: right near the beach, great views, amazing room, relaxing pool that looks at the ocean and a great staff.

We were settled in relaxing, snacking, coloring and catching up on sports (something my dad and I will always love sharing together).

Before dinner it was time for a relaxing moment by the pool and bust out my swimwear from Target to go along with my coverup by Helmut Lang compliments of Attire LA (they were kind enought to lend me pieces for my amazing trip). A must have was my 2 Penny Blue bag along with the current Glamour magazine and of course my dad brought baseball magazines to prepare for the upcoming baseball season. It was so fantastic to relax in the sun and dip my toes in the water while looking at the ocean.

It was now happy hour and dinner time at the fabulous Embassy Suites in Oxnard and Lure Fish House in downtown Ventura. Now when I tell you this is a must, it truly is a must. Amazing meal for us both, delicious. A walk after dinner was the perfect end to a perfect first day of vacation.

After breakfast in downtown Ventura, it was activity time so we decided on the Outlets in Camarillo because they have an awesome movie theatre. Of course we stopped in a few shops and found some fun stuff. The movie was starting, which was Logan ( Hugh Jackman’s last one) and let me tell you it was simply fantastic and riveting. My dad and I both loved it.

Movies were great and it was happy hour time now. My dad and mom have explored some great wineries so we stopped at one of them, 4 Brix Winery, which is officially always on my list when I am in the area. Wine was spectacular, cheese plate was savory & sweet , convo was fun and loved their amazing event space with the beautiful wine barrels. You will want to put this winery on your list.

What came next on this Ventura adventure? Trying a new spot that my friend suggested, Cork (only had been open four months and know it will be there for a long time). My dad and I loved everything about it from the fantastic wine to the service and atmosphere. The food also looked and smelled amazing and can’t wait to try it next time 🙂

It was going from a beautiful day to a majestic night. With a day filled of beauty and fun, another favorite of mine, a nap, was for sure needed. Dinner duds were now on and we were ready for an amazing steak dinner at Cafe Zack. Also, if you are a non-meat eater, they offer so many other amazing dishes for you to enjoy 🙂 We ended dinner with a decadent chocolate dessert, outstanding ! It was another end to an amazing day.

The third and final day to a great vacation was spent having a great breakfast at the hotel and enjoying the beautiful view one last time. Ventura was an amazing vacation with my dad and the getaway we needed, definitely will be back to explore even more again soon.
