Fall for Him

Freedom with Dryel!

I'm so excited to be partnering with Dryel so more of you can know about how amazing these products are!!

Dryel is the best way to safely and thoroughly clean your special care clothes at home. I got so sick of spending so much at the dry cleaners! Especially when many times they took too long or would end up messing up my clothes!! The Fabric Protection Bag protects clothes and concentrates the gentle cleaning vapor from the Dryer Activated cleaning cloth for optimal cleaning performance. No fading, shrinking, or stretching like is often caused by wet washing or dry cleaning.

Dryel works in the convenience of YOUR dryer in as little as 15 minutes and saves up to 90% of the cost of dry cleaning. 15 minutes!!!!! That saves so much time going back and forth from the dry cleaners and waiting on them to have your pieces even ready!!! Which takes days! So, when you have suits, dresses, or even jeans and sweaters that need to be cleaned, skip the hassle, expense, and harsh chemicals of the dry cleaner- Dryel is a no-brainer!!!

I'm also obsessed with Dryel's On-the-go Stain Pen Remover!! This product is perfect for you to put in your bag for those accidents that happen when you are out. This is a lifesaver for me!!

I'm always wearing special pieces that needed to be "dry clean only" but thanks to Dryel that has saved me not only money, but more importantly TIME!! And now I don't feel annoyed when I see a tag says "dry clean only" because of how easy Dryel has made it!!

Xoxo,

Dryel 101: My New Obsession!

I am so excited to partner with Dryel and tell you about one of my newest discoveries that I can't believe I just heard of!!

Dryel is the original at-home dry cleaner! And I am so obsessed because it has saved me SO much because now I spend a ton and have to go to the dry cleaners!!

Dryel is the best way to safely and thoroughly clean your special care clothes at home. The Fabric Protection Bag protects clothes and concentrates the gentle cleaning vapor from the Dryer Activated cleaning cloth for optimal cleaning performance. There is no fading, shrinking, or stretching like is often caused by wet washing or dry cleaning. Which I have had countless pieces ruined from expensive dry cleaners!

Dryel works in the convenience of your dryer in as little as 15 minutes and saves up to 90% of the cost of dry cleaning. So, when you have suits, dresses, or even jeans and sweaters that need to be cleaned, skip the hassle, expense, and harsh chemicals of the dry cleaner. I have not been able to stop using Dryel!!!

This is the Dryel Starter Kit and its perfect for first time users to try out the product! It's so easy to use!

First, you use the stain pen to remove any small stains on your pieces. Side note- what I love is you can also use the stain pen on the go and put it in your bag for any accidental stains when you are out and about!

Second, spray the Odor & Wrinkle Releaser on high odor areas on your pieces! This is a MIRACLE worker!!!

Third, put up to 5 garments and 1 Dryer-Activated Cleaning Cloth in the reusable Fabric Protection Bag. Then you tumble in the dryer on MEDIUM HEAT for 15-30 minutes. It's amazing because the Dryer-Activated Cleaning Cloth and Fabric Protection Bag work together to steam-clean clothes!

Lastly, when the garments are ready you need to hang them so the wrinkles will fall out. If there happen to be any wrinkles left then just spray with the Odor & Wrinkle Releaser and it will smooth ll the wrinkles away! And now you have all your clean and fresh pieces ready to wear!!

How easy was that? and you will love the results.

And now I am ready for my day and the new year with my pieces freshened up with Dryel!! Love it so much!

Xoxo,

San Diego Museum Month x Hilton Bayfront Trip!

I love taking trips as you guys know and one of my favorite spots is San Diego!! It's close and just so beautiful! I was so excited to come down to San Diego for a weekend trip because not only is it beautiful and a quick getaway, but February is San Diego's Museum Month! If you love visiting museums too, then it's perfect for you. There are over 40 museums that participate in Museum Month and it’s half-off admission for the participating museums. You can grab a museum month pass for free at any Hilton Hotel in the San Diego Area. And who doesn't love a Hilton Hotel! I mean, how gorgeous is this pool at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront? You know I love a good pool.

And my gorgeous view from my hotel room! This was the first time I have stayed at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and I am loving it! I love walking everywhere so it's perfect because it's close to everything you would want to go explore! Not to mention, every morning that breakfast buffet is sooo good and convenient.

We got in around 4pm and settled into the hotel and then went to such an amazing spot for dinner called CUCINA urbana! And I was having too much fun in the wine shop... haha.

I mean, how delicious is that?! Not to mention, they had AMAZING cocktails!!

I was so excited to hop on the Old Town Trolley's! Its an amazing way to see the city especially if it’s your first time to San Diego! It's so much fun and our guide was super funny with lots of interesting facts about the city!  I love that you can hop on and off all day depending on what you want to do.

And now for the museums! My first stop was San Diego's Natural History Museum!

We had so much fun learning from one of the paleontologists, Christopher Plouffe about all the fossils found and how they preserve everything! I love the museum because I love the animals and they even have a live animals exhibit. Also, obsessed with their collection of over 100 gems where you can learn about mineralogy and so much more. I had so much fun exploring here.

Look at this little babe! Can't wait to come back.

Oh yes, and after a delicious lunch at Panama 66 our next stop was- The San Diego Museum of Art!

I loved this museum because I could honestly look at art all day. I love the guided tours, but also just love exploring on my own and trying to see my interpretation too! I fell in love with the gorgeous Bouguereau exhibit, which will only be there until March 15th. So hurry and check it out!! It's totally worth it.

I'm obsessed with gardens so obviously had to make a stop at the Japanese Friendship Garden too!!!!!! Oh my gosh, so magical and lush! And loved all the baby bonsai trees!

Balboa Park is so gorgeous and I had no idea about it. I loved exploring around the park after I checked out all the museums. I mean I can't say how beautiful this spot is! Picture perfect too if you ask me!

Last stop of the day and probably my favorite was the USS Midway Museum! I mean, oh my gosh- how did I also not know this place existed? It was so amazing. We also went at the perfect time, sunset!!! So happy we were able to get guided by one of the Midway's Docents! This museum consists of the aircraft carrier Midway and the hip houses a crazy collection of aircrafts!

And after a super fun day at the museums we had some Mexican food and margaritas at Puesto! So good and such a beautiful restaurant too!!

After a well rested night we headed to the Living Coast Discovery Center in the morning!

As I mentioned, I love animals!!! I loved this visit and isn't too far from Downtown San Diego! They are not only a non-profit organization, but help preserve nature and give back. We were able to learn about how important it is to help care for our environment and learn about these animals too. We did so much fun stuff like feed the sea turtles and string rays!! It took a minute for one of the sting rays to come to me though! Definitely somewhere you need to stop by!

Museum Month is the perfect way to make a fun trip down to a Hilton in San Diego and see a lot of the museums!! I can’t wait to go back before the end of the month to see some new ones that I didn’t get to see on this last trip. When are you heading there?!

XOXO,
