The Complete (COVID) Weekend Guide To Joshua Tree

Weekend Guide To Joshua Tree

Because I’ve been alone in my apartment since March and I really NEEDED this…


Rating 5 Celebrity Wines

Rating 5 Celebrity Wines

Today’s celebrity wine rating post was basically inspired by a combination of TikTok and the pandemic; it’s true – soooo many of us have been drinking at home for the past year and, I don’t know about you guys, but I started to get realllll creative with some of my alcohol orders, lol.  At one point I was doing orders by country (still laughing out loud as I type this) because I feel like I traveled the world from my couch after trying new wines from Spain, New Zealand, Italy and France.  Not to mention my trip to Mexico with two new tequilas (fun fact: I still like Casamigos best for margaritas; sipping tequila is a different story).

Anywho, as I did research for this blog post on which celeb wines I wanted to try, I learned one kind of crazy fact: there are DOZENS of celebrity wine brands.

Like ones you’ve probably never even heard of.

I sent several screen shots to my friend Gaby, who is a former People reporter and clearly knows her celeb info, and even she was shocked at some of them.  But, that said, I selected five that are totally on brand for HJ readers and I’m very curious to hear what you guys think so make to sure to comment below and let me know your thoughts.

Oh and btw- I ordered all five of these wines online since I’m trying to be COVID safe.  If you want to try any (or all) of these, and have them shipped directly to you, use my referral link HERE – you’ll get $30 off your first order!

Hi friends!

It’s been awhile, I know.  Truthfully I needed to take a little break last month…it’s just been a LOT dealing with the sale of my dad’s condo (even harder being 3,000 miles away while doing so), among other things like a little thing called COVID quarantine, etc.  You know- just fun times! (This is sarcasm because you always have to laugh).

That said, it’s a new month…my birthday month and a month that feels like a bit of a fresh start for me, in many ways.  I don’t know about you guys, but I always love when a new month starts on a Monday, right? 🙂

Have a great week and make sure to subscribe to my email newsletter so you don’t miss any of the March content!

Things Making Me Happy: 1.11.21

Well, what a doozy last week was…

You may have noticed that I took a little blogging/podcasting break for the holidays and, yeah, it was definitely needed.  I have a blog post coming later this week where I talk about my COVID travel experience (highly requested over on Instagram) and, honestly, after the madness of last week I’m still kind of just reeling and trying to gather up my thoughts and feelings on what is already a crazy start to 2021.

In the mean time, I spent all of yesterday doing a slight digital detox (ok, I DID check Insta quickly about three times, lol) and doing lots of reading (more on that below).

I hope everyone has a great week!  Make sure to check back later for more posts. Or even easier, you can sign up for my blog post updates at the “Subscribe” drop down at the top of the blog.
