My college best friend is getting married guys! This past Saturday she "proposed" to her bridesmaids in the classiest fashion as only she would. . . a high tea brunch! I am counting down to January 27th operation #PutASingOnIt where I will witness my beautiful friend marry the love of her life in Thailand!
Last year I went to Coachella for the concert and created a post on how you can go to one of the hottest (and expensive) music festivals without breaking the bank. This year I decided to sell my Coachella Weekend 1 ticket (Queen Bey wasn't there so I didn't feel the need to be either lol jk...kinda) and instead I went to a few events and parties this year which I didn't get to do last year. I literally experienced Coachella weekend in a turn around road trip to Palm Springs in under 24 hours and it was EPIC.
On Sundays, we brunch! Yesterday my girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday at Toca Madera in West Hollywood. I've been to Toca Madera for dinner and happy hour so I was excited to try their fun brunch menu, the food was good and the drinks were delicious. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your experience at Toca and a look into my Sunday Funday!
I began traveling frequently while I was in college every summer to exotic islands with my God sister (we were lucky to have her dad fund our summer getaways back then). After I graduated college I stepped into "the real world" and thought that I would have to forgo my jet setter lifestyle because I thought I didn't have enough money, wrong! You can still see the world on a budget, travel is not only for the 1%.
What the hell is Whole 30? I feel like that's the question that I've been getting lately since it's all I post about on Insta-Stories now (@jacklynsweet). When my friend asked me to join him on his Whole 30 journey for the month of May I first said "Okay, yeah!" . . . then moments later asked "What is Whole 30 and what does it consist of? I saw that somewhere" Lol. So needless to say until May 31st I will not only have changed my eating habits/routine, mindset, and hopefully my body but even going on week two I already feel challenged and empowered by how strong my willpower has gotten while on Whole 30.
After attending my first ever Coachella weekend last year, I learned that in order to survive Coachella weekend somewhat gracefully you need to have some type of balance in your day. This year I decided to have a jammed packed Coachella weekend experience in 1 day (I will tell you how I pulled that off in another post) but first I had to get my body right and energy up before I took on the rest of the day by going to the Coachella Wellness Lounge hosted by Style Firm LA.
Self-care is important to maintain a healthy relationship with your self, the most important relationship you will ever have. Here is a list of ways you can incorporate (more) self-care into your daily routine.
My mommy flew into LA for her birthday weekend, having her in LA was exactly what I needed after being away in London and Paris for two weeks. . .we ate, drank, and shopped our way through Los Angeles in 5 days.
My first Parisian experience didn't start off as magical as one may imagine but I must say that I will be back for the rich hot chocolate, champagne ( because champagne is just more fun to drink in France), and of course the beloved Parapharmacie (yep, you read it right. . . the pharmacy).
