Winter skin care is tough! My combination skin gets so dry during the winter months. I have to try really hard to keep my skin moisturized. On top of that, my skin is very sensitive and prone to breakouts. Cue BioClarity’s skin care regimen. My sensitive skin has been loving this 3-step system consisting of a cleanser, treatment, and restore gel. I also love that their products are 100% vegan, cruelty free, and free of parabens, gluten, sulfate, and fragrances!

My parents recently bought a boat with a cabin that they dock in Seattle, Washington. So for Christmas, we decided to take a spontaneous trip to Seattle. We spent two days exploring the city and at night we relaxed on the boat. Seattle is a really fun city with a cool vibe! It’s a seaport city so you have the waterfront area to explore, great sea food, and tons of urban areas to discover. In this guide I will be sharing some of my favorite spots to explore and eat while in Seattle!

My brother Dario graduated from Montana State University last week with his Bachelors in Physiscs. My family and I drove 10 hours to be there for his graduation. We are so proud of him! My sister Rocio and I stayed a few days longer to help my brother pack to move to Spokane. His friend had invited him to stay at his cabin so we came along.

Schyler and I are spending Christmas apart this year (I will be with family in Eastern Washington and he will be with his family in Seattle) so we had a special, early Christmas dinner. With the help of Farmer John, I made a honey roasted pork dish with their pork shoulder and maple roasted Brussel sprouts with bacon using their classic bacon slices. I served these plates with delicious herbed Yukon gold potatoes. Keep reading for these delicious recipes!

These mini Christmas wreaths are so simple and pretty! Natural and simple decorations is the theme for my Christmas decorating this year. This DIY was under $3 and only took 10 minutes to make! All I had to pay for was the string and I gathered the pine tree and berry branches from my backyard. I love DIY’s that are super affordable and easy to make.

Sauvie Island Farms Christmas Photos

By on December 11, 2017

My talented friend McKenzie did it again with these Christmas photos! I love everyone of them. Photos are such an amazing way of capturing moments we would like to remember forever. That’s why I love to find every occasion to take photos with loved ones. Schyler and I took Christmas photos at a tree farm last year so I wanted to keep up the tradition this year. We headed to Sauvie Island Farms to find the perfect tree and take some fun photos.

Here in Portland, OR, we don’t usually get snow until January. We have been having a fairly warm winter so far which is nice because I have been able to wear some layered outfits. I’m sure I’ll have to whip out the winter jacket soon but for now I’ve been getting away with some lighter coats. I wanted to share some of my favorite winter pieces with you guys!

DIY Pinecone Garland

By on December 6, 2017

The count down to Christmas continues! I still have a ton of things to check off my list, but at least my decorating is done. I wanted to share another one of my DIY Christmas decorations. This pinecone garland is the perfect natural Christmas decoration! Pinecones really speak Christmas to me and I thought a garland would be a great way to incorporate them into my decor this year. The best part about it is that it's practically free! I had twine sitting around from a previous DIY but you can easily get a roll for under $4. I gathered these fallen pine cones from trees in my neighborhood. I'm pretty resourceful :)
