Back in February I visited Vail with my siblings and for our second and third day we decided to head to Beaver Creek which I LOVED! Beaver Creek, CO is like a smaller, more contained Vail Village that’s only about 15 away. It’s anchored by the huge Park Hyatt Hotel which became my home base for those two days. My first day in Vail I had a tumble down the mountain so I decided to skip the skiing for the rest of our visit (and possibly the rest of my life). Beaver Creek also has a lovely little area adjacent to the slopes with shops, restaurants, bars, rental shops, and a public ice skating rink right in the middle of it all.
The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek lobby was the best place to hang out during the day because it has huge windows that face the mountain so you can watch all the action outside while staying cozy on all the couches and by the fire inside. The food there was also amazing. At the cafe I had a hot chocolate with Baileys in it which was to die for.
Then I browsed the TripAdvisor app and had the greatest discovery of my trip, the Allegria Spa. This place OMG. This was exactly what I needed! If you go to the Vail area you cannot miss this spa. Especially if you’re staying at your ski bum little brother’s (basically) frat house like I did, this place will relax, calm, and cleanse you.
Aqua Sanitas at the Allegria Spa
At the Allegria Spa at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek there is an incredible Aqua Sanitas water ritual which I could have spent the rest of my life doing. Basically you bring your bathing suit and the water ritual involves alternating hot and cold. If you get a treatment at the spa it’s included in the cost. You can also enjoy the Aqua Sanitas on its own for $20 if you’re staying at the resort or $55 if you’re not. The day pass includes access to Aqua Sanitas, the fitness center, locker room facilities, pools, hot tubs, and 1 group fitness class. It is worth every penny.

Crystals have been gaining popularity lately as they are able to help with anything from love to money or can even help deepen meditation and connect you to your chakras. If you are a crystal newbie, I recommend reading over A Beginner’s Guide to Healing Crystals to learn a little bit more about how they work.
If you’re looking for a super affordable beginner’s crystal kit, I highly recommend my friend Annabelle’s which you can get on her website Adderall and Compliments. She’s also had some crystal experts on her podcast that go super in depth about what crystals are for and how to use them.
Since we’re all using our rock babies to help manifest our destinies, it only makes sense that they’ve made their way to our nails seeing as they are naturally beautiful.

I am OBSESSED with Abigail’s (@onehauteblonde) stunning Rose Quartz Nails. These beautiful babies inspired this post! Abigail said her nail artist used a gel polish and hand painted the design on top. Rose Quartz is the Crystal of Unconditional Love (for yourself and others!) It helps dissolve emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and helps open the heart to truly give and receive love from others aka it’s a single girl’s BFF.

I’ve been a huge fan of Southern Charm since the very first season and Cameran consistently has absolutely amazing hair and makeup that are natural and effortless, yet incredible all at the same time. Since a lot of people have questions about her age- Cameran Eubanks aka Cameran Wimberly’s birthday is 11/21/83 making her currently 33 years old. One of Cameran’s biggest beauty secrets and the reason why she always looks so flawless- she used to be a makeup artist! (Source)
Did you know that Nordstrom holds free beauty events that anyone can sign up for? On 3/26/17 I went to my third beauty event at Nordstrom to find out what all the hot new products are and if there’s any trends. I ended up with 3 Drybar products and have been using them all for 2 months and I’m obsessed!
Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City has really nailed the “I’m not wearing that much makeup yet I look incredibly polished and chic at the same time” look. She never looks cakey or overdone, yet always looks flawless! If you saw my Sonja Morgan’s Beauty Secrets – Skincare, Botox, Facials, and More post you know that Sonja takes amazing care of her skin and eats very healthy, but what is she putting on her face and body that is making her look so flawless? I still can’t believe Queen Sonja Morgan herself reposted my last blog on her Facebook, I mean is this real life!?!?
Mother’s Day is this Sunday May 14th, 2017!! If you need a last minute Mother’s day gift ideas for a mom (or Grandma, or Mother-in-law, or step-mom or baby mama) in your life, I’ve got you covered! Being from Florida I know tons of moms who like to have fun in the sun whether they’re by the pool, at the beach, or on the boat which inspired these gift ideas! These Mother’s Day gifts are great on their own or would be even better as a themed gift in a nice big basket or bag to really wow her.
Most of these gifts are available at Nordstrom which always has free shipping over $50 and also has this amazing feature where you can order online and pick it up at your nearest store! If you’re in LA and want to pick it up at the Grove you just pull into the valet and they bring it to your car! I tried it recently and felt like I was doing an errand for a rich person haha, but I loved it so convenient!
