The Bernardo Winery in San Diego

The Bernardo Winery in San Diego

While living in Rancho Bernardo for the past year, I discovered the cutest local winery I wanted to share with you all today. For anyone who loves exploring San Diego, and it's hidden treasures, The Bernardo Winery is definitely a great place to check out! Not only do they have their very own vineyard, they also have restaurants, a cafe, gift shops, wine tasting, live music and even a small farmer's market every Friday. The actual property is, of course, beautiful, covered with plush trees, relaxing lawn areas and an overall cutesy vintage farm decor. I don't drink wine, but, for those of you that do... they have a $10 wine tasting which allows you to pick five different wines from their list, and with each selection you get a complimentary chocolate that goes with your selected wine. Overall, The Bernardo Winery is a super cute place for small weddings, anniversaries, intimate celebrations or just a…

Leopard Smoking Slippers by Naughty Monkey

Every so often, I come across a shoe at work that I instantly fall in love with, and this Media Mash Up, hot pink and leopard smoking slipper by Naughty Monkey is most definitely one of them.

BioMeridian Testing at The Center for Advanced Medicine

BioMeridian Testing at The Center for Advanced Medicine

For as long as I can remember, I have been sick. To anyone who knows me, you probably know me as the girl who is always sniffling, and never without a cough. I have spent most of my life in and out of traditional hospitals, always in search of some relief, however, I usually leave in tears, as modern doctors never seem to treat the actual problem, instead just offer up harmful medicines that only treat the symptoms. Because I was finally sick and tired, of being sick and tired, I took matters into my own hands and had a basic food allergy blood test done last year. This test revealed that I am allergic to gluten, so, I eliminated gluten entirely from my diet. Over time, my cough and ailments did go away, by simply eliminating gluten from my diet, however, I would sometimes still have a slight cough, and never really felt 100%…

I wanted to put together outfits that girls could actually piece together with items they may already own, because, let's be real- who has the time or money to go and shop for all of these outfits they see online?
