THE ULTIMATE ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND IN CHICAGO

Last month, in early December, Will and I celebrated 5 years of marriage together. We talked about how we wanted to do something really special and decided we would travel to Chicago to celebrate! We have always been curious about this major city in the Midwest + there were so many festive things to do during the month of December for the holidays. We figured it would be super romantic to spend the weekend in the cold windy city!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019

Happy New Year Everyone and welcome to my new site design! This has truly been a work in progress for a really long time. A little longer than what I would have liked for it to be, but I figured the new year would serve as the perfect time to go live with the new layout and start completely fresh with Styled Chic. I had my last layout for 5 years so this was long overdue.

LAS VEGAS VACATION

Just a few months ago, my husband and I decided to go on a much needed vacation. Now that I think about it—before this, we hadn’t had a real vacation alone since before we were married; which was over 7 years ago. We didn’t plan a honeymoon after our wedding. Honestly, we had other priorities and responsibilities following the wedding and into the next few years that we wanted to focus on that was just way more important to us. After our move and finally feeling more settled in our new city and home; we realized we were long overdue for a trip away.

CHICKEN ENCHILADA SOUP

Tis the season for savory meals and hearty dishes. I love making flavorful soups during this time of year. There’s nothing more comforting than to come to the pleasant aroma of good food after being out in cold weather. I especially love putting my crockpot to use and saving some time by having dinner ready before hand.

Date Night with Kabana Rooftop

Hellllllo everyone!  It's been a while!  I have been away for some time you guys--and with good reason.  This summer I really wanted to focus on having a real summer vacation.  This included heading out West for a turned up Vegas bachelorette party and back to my home state of California for my long time friend's wedding.  I had such a blast and it was so good for the soul to reconnect with friends I've known for over 25 years. I was able to document most of the vacation on social media and if you follow me there you were able to see photos.

LOFT NEW + NOW SUMMER EVENT

Hey guys!  Welcome back!  Since my last post I've been taking the time to really get inspired offline and discover new found interests.  It's so easy to get wrapped up in the online world; especially when you are a blogger.   I always like to step back when it no longer becomes fun, because for me,  that's what its all about.  Fun!  

Since it's been a little while, I wanted to come back with a recap of event I hosted recently.

Evening Glow with L'Occitane En Provence

No matter how busy my day is, you guys know I thoroughly enjoy winding down at home after work hours.  I'm making it a habit in sharing all of my "at home spa" rituals with all the luxurious products I use included.  More recently I've created a routine that's quick and to the point.  Allowing for me to have my hair prepped (naturally curly hair routine) and in my pjs in just an hour after getting home.  I figure the sooner I can get my makeup off and get in and out of the shower; the more time I can relax on my computer in bed.
