I am so looking forward to going back to @cremechocolats Have you been there yet??? If you answer No you need to get there ASAP because you are missing out big time. Their chocolate hand dipped icecream cones are beyond delicious. If you get your icecream on a waffle cone they smother it in your choice of flavored Belgian chocolate 🍫 My husband didn’t share his Oreo cone with me but at least I snapped a pic 📷 stay tuned for a giveaway!
Do you love or hate Mondays? For some people Mondays are the worst day of the week. Going back to work, school etc. And getting back into a routine it’s daunting. On the other hand, other people see Mondays as a new slate, new beginnings and the perfect time to set goals. Which one do you relate to? I gotta say I don’t have a consistent love or hate relationship with Mondays. Some are awesome and I feel super motivated and pumped and others are just well, a Monday. Whether you love or hate Mondays I hope you have a happy and successful week #happymonday
Life is sweeter with a giant ball of cotton candy 🍭 we spending the day at @jakes.unlimited having a blast. If you need me I’ll be at the laser tag maze or stuffing my face with their pretzels 🥨 If you are bored AF at home but don’t want to be outside either because you might melt, then you need to check out this place. They are open until 2:00 a.m. on weekends, yup 2 in the morning! They have everything you can think of to keep your kids entertained including bowling (today’s is #nationalbowlingday ), laser tag, bumper cars and more.
The first time I went on a diet I was 11 or 12 years old. A family member came to visit us and the first thing he said to me was “Wow! You look fat” 😯I’m not kidding! That day I skipped lunch and from then forward I was always trying some sort of diet, new exercise or miracle thing to loose weight.
I became an avid reader of fitness magazines, I would save money and buy anything that promised to help me loose weight. After many years trying to loose weight and failing at it, I have realized that my worth is not attached to a number in the scale or the way my jeans fit. I have decided to love myself unconditionally no matter what size or what stage of life I’m in. I’m on a self love journey and you are in for the ride. These days you have seen more pictures of myself than usual, not because I feel prettier or 100% confident in my own skin. No, I’m far from that. But I have decided to show up and share this journey with you in hopes that get inspired and join me in this self love adventure. 💫 #selflove

Food and wine are flowing at the @hyattscottsdale pop up dinner in collaboration with Steven Contreras. Amuse Bouche to start: burrata, almond mole, toast, strawberry chutney, sesame seeds and cilantro paired with Supery rose
Can we just eat dessert first? Yesterday I had a fabulous dinner at @houseoftricksaz I can’t believe it was my first time there but I’m sure it will be the first of many more. Y’all know dessert is life for me and this lemon gelato was talking my love language. I chose sea bass for my entree and I couldn’t get enough of that delicious flaky fish 🤤🤤🤤 For the month of August at @houseoftricksaz you get 20% off your bill (including alcohol!) when you mention the 20% off discount code. So if you haven’t been to House of Tricks yet, make sure to take advantage of the opportunity!
It’s been a super busy Monday. I’m super stocked about this week. Started out right with some Pilates, some work for clients and a new flash for my camera 📷 Tomorrow I will be visiting @houseoftricksaz for the first time ever. I have heard nothing but great things about this place. They have a super special summer promo for 20% off through the end of August! So be sure to check them out. On Wednesday I will be joining @hyattscottsdale for a fabulous pop-up dinner with chef Steven Contreras (is he related to you @chef_bcon ?) the menu looks absolutely amazing!

Happy Monday! I’m just here day dreaming about the fabulous food I ate over the weekend including this feast from @eatdoughbird Tried their new Chicken BBQ salad with chipotle ranch dressing and their prosciutto and goat cheese pizza. Both amazing!!!
It’s #nationaloysterday and this year I celebrated it with @kingsfishhouse To be completely honest I didn’t try oysters until I started my blog, so for me they have been an “acquired taste” one of those foods that you aren’t sure if you love or hate when you first try but that the more you eat the more you love 💗 I’m curious, tell me what’s that acquired taste food for you? #tempemarketplace#partner @tempemarketplace
