Vinotive

Hey there February, you just came out of nowhere! Can you believe we are heading into Valentines day? It is one of my most favorite times of year. How can you not love love? How can you not love flowers, hearts, candy, and wine?! Speaking of which, I think I’m going to style my husband’s bar as a Valentine’s Day gift to him, and I’m starting with Vinotive.

A couple years back, my husband stumbled on some really high quality wine at an estate sale and decided to resell it. It became a side business and hobby for him. As a result, we ourselves ended up with quite the collection. Much of our wine cannot just be screwed open and enjoyed instantly. It needs to be treated well, aerated, and often decanted.

Scottsdale

Like I mentioned in my previous post, we tend to think the grass is literally greener on the other side and not be thankful for the amazing things our town has to offer. Lately, I’ve been trying to find fun restaurants and new things to do in Scottsdale. One of my favorite recent discoveries is the art installation over the Scottsdale canal near Old Town Scottsdale.

 

Vacation Mode

Holy smokes, it’s cold outside…but not here. As a former Chicagoan I remember cold like a fond memory…. pretty white blanketed landscapes, crunchy footsteps, cold air that bites your cheeks. The truth is, I don’t think I ever felt that way once while living there. I constantly pined to be in vacation mode, and when the opportunity to go away to university in Arizona presented itself I jumped all over it. Fast forward, and here I am complaining of missing the snow, missing the magic of crunchy footsteps and sparkly white landscapes. It’s so funny how that happens, isn’t it?

Jumanji

I don’t know if y’all noticed, but Amazon Prime has been thinking up new ways to make sure its members feel like they get their money’s worth. If I’m being honest, I buy something and get it within two days with Prime shipping almost once a day (and you know you do, too!) From my toothpaste to holiday shopping, I do it all on Amazon. And thanks to my Prime membership, I was able to watch “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” 12 days earlier then the public!

My Italist Review

I’m so excited to share my Italist review with you! I adore beautiful fashion, especially the luxury kind, but I also think it’s super important to find the best pricing on the items I’m lusting over before I go ahead and bite the bullet. Enter, Italist.com! Here’s what makes them one of kind and what I found while doing an Italist review:

The Discounts – Italist.com provides a huge selection of highly sought after, highly luxury, highly fashionable pieces at 30% off on average! When is the last time you found your favorite bag and then could get it approximately 30% off! I alway head to Italist.com to find great note worthy pieces. As a fashion blogger it’s a resource for keeping up my A game.

Fast Shipping! – This is a really big deal to me, especially when I’m shopping for an event. I hate not knowing if a dress or outfit is going to arrive in time. No worries with Italist.

The Choices – In my review of Italist.com I have discovered they have over 800 luxury labels. I have found they provide a larger list of designers than any other site I use to shop. Here’s a couple of my favorites:

Aquazzura (I’m in love with their heels and and the Italist prices)

Fendi (Check out the cute bag selection)

Prada  (A classic)

Self-Portrait (one of my favorite dress designers)

CHLOÉ (There’s a pair of high waist Chloe jeans I have my eye on!)

I often visit Italist.com looking for my key splurge-worthy items. How do you determine what a splurge worthy item is? For me, they have to be items I wear on repeat easily, or they have to be items that can be passed on to my daughter. On that list are: denim, sneakers, jewelry, purses, and an occasional fancy dress. What I really want to focus on in my Italist.com review is the chicest splurge worthy sneakers out there!
