Weekend Getaway: Hershey, PA

Special thanks to Hershey for partnering with us on this post!

This weekend was the perfect opportunity to getaway and do something exciting. So we decided to head out to the sweetest place on Earth, Hershey, PA! I haven't been out there since 2010, so I was excited to see any new changes and old favorites that happened over the years at Hershey's Chocolate World. It's a great place to visit with the whole family, especially in the off season, when their amusement park isn't open.

#FashionFriday: Stuart Weitzman Sale

Sometimes when things are too good to be true, they usually are. Well here's the one case it's not. Stuart Weitzman is having an amazing sale that I think you should know about. You can find shoes starting at as low a second $188 and for a limited time get an additional 10% off of the sale price with code "ADD10". The hard part is choosing one (or two). If you decide on just one I would definitely lean towards one of their classic tall boot silhouettes with the ties, it’s a classic look from the brand that never goes out of style. Happy Friday and Happy Shopping!

#TBT: My Disney Memories - Food & Wine Fest 2017

If one of your 2018 plans include a trip to Walt Disney World, may I suggest attending their Food and Wine Festival that takes place usually at the end of summer and last until late fall. Since my family started going years ago, (over 10 years ago) it's gained popularity and they've extending the dates of the festival.

My favorite thing about the Food & Wine Festival is that I can eat "world the world" and try food and beverages from all different cultures. I always try to make it a point to visit a different station every time, but of course I have my favorites. Here's what made my Food & Wine list of 2018!

Beauty Review: 7th Heaven Face Masks

7th Heaven Facial Mask Review
Before my new year got interrupted with the stomach virus (#gross), I wanted to treat myself to a great facial mask from 7th Heaven! They were nice enough to send me a package packed with facial mask of all kinds, even one for my hubby. The first one I used was the Creamy Coconut containing Ground Cocoa, Coconut (of course) and Shea Nuts.

New Year, New You - Planners, Journals & Such

New Year, New You - Planners, Journals & Such

If you're anything like me, there's just nothing like writing your goals, thoughts, and ideas down on old fashion pen and paper. Last month, I picked up this lovely marble planner from Urban Outfitters (pictured above).

Here's what I loved about this one: 
  • The marble cover is classic (You'll definitely want to check out the other patterns here.)
  • It's more of a paperback, so it can easily fit into any purse
  • Not super big, roughly 8.5" x 6"
  • Allows you to write in the date
  • Includes different areas for your to do list and next day plans
  • Has a time table
  • Extra space for jointing down objectives each day

Since there's so many great planners to close from I fine-tuned it down to 10 of my second favs. I'll leave it to you to choose the best one.

Discover your world wide family

This post was made possible by!

It's now the time of year when families love to get together. You may find yourself either sharing your favorite funny stories, welcoming loved ones, or discovering long lost relatives. The latter is something my family and I started doing once my father got his DNA results back from The My Heritage DNA at home kit is an easy cheek swab DNA test that reveals detailed ethnic origins. They have already helped millions of people find new additions to their family tree and discover their background.

Sunny Days Ahead with Visionworks

Special thanks to Visionworks for providing me product to review in exchange for a post. All thoughts and views are my own. 

Fun Fact: The Earth is closest to the Sun in the winter and since winter is on it's way, now is the perfect time to shop for a new pair of shades to protect your peeps. Aviators are my favorite style of sunglasses, so when VisionWorks invited me to take a look at some of their fall styles, naturally I was drawn to these babies.
