Yes Pleases of the Week

“Sugar, Yes Please.”

My favorite time of the week is here, it is my Yes Pleases of the Week. I love being able to share with y’all my current obsessions . My hope with this weekly series is for us each to inspire one another. Here is to another week of Yes Pleases, fun and inspiration !

Yes Please #1 : Fun Hair Accessories

When I am not wearing a hat (sun or Cubs), I am wearing fun hair accessories like my Perky Pony or my floral hair clips by The Vintage Cosmetic Company. They both along with others add that extra flair for a girls day out, a night out or a fun adventure, Yes Please to all of that !

Yes Please #2: Huckleberry Everything

So I was introduced to Huckleberry when I went to Montana for my friend’s wedding four years ago. I had never heard of this fruit before primarily because it comes from Montana and surrounding areas. I tried it for the first time in the form of a shake in Plains, MT and I fell in love. I say Yes Please to it all from jam to coffee to ice cream from Sweet Peaks and everything else Huckleberry. If you come across it, I say try it and let me know what you think 🙂 (If you are in the San Diego area, Old Town has some 🙂 )

Yes Please #3: Montana Coffee Traders

I recently went to Kalispell, Montana to visit a friend and then we road tripped it back. When I arrived in Kalispell, we stopped at Montana Coffee Traders . Let me tell you, smelled amazing , looked so cute and was delicious. My iced tea and sandwich were fantastic. Next time I am in Kalispell I will definitely be stopping there. An added bonus: being able to buy some goodies for my fan, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Odd Mom Out on Bravo (premiered on Wednesday, July 12th)

Odd Mom Out had me hooked from their season 1 trailer last year. With Season 2 now in week 2, I am still hooked and it seems to get better and better. I can’t wait to figure out what my favorite episode will be from this new season. It covers real topics, but in a way that is a great escape filled with laughs. Odd Mom Out, Yes Please.

Yes Please #5: All Things Live Love Gameday

I came in contact with Live Love Gameday when I was working on a sports and fashion piece last year. I fell in love with this brand immediately, which includes Burleyson and Blaine along with LLG. I became obsessed not just because it is made in the US via Dallas & run by a fabulous girl boss, Sydney McArthur, but because it is a combo of my two loves: sports and fashion. I continue to rock their pieces on the daily especially when supporting my Chicago Cubs. LLG will always get my Yes Please stamp of approval.

This week’s Yes Pleases were so exciting to compile together. Thanks for being patient after I was off for a bit 🙂 Stay tuned for next week’s Yes Pleases !

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.
