I’m sure you’ve heard, the release of the iPhone 7 is coming very soon. Considering an upgrade? Me too. But first I wanted to share why I’m obsessed with the iPhone 6 Plus. Here’s my iPhone 6 Plus review and what’s new for the new iPhone 7 Plus.

Hey, lovely readers! If you follow along often, you may know that I don’t regularly post DIYs, but you all seemed to love my DIY Gold Leaf Wine Glasses so much from last year, I figured you’d appreciate reading about another DIY that I’ve been up to – DIY Floral Garlands.

Hey loves! I hope you’re having a great week.

It’s crazy to think but Valentine’s Day is next weekend- wow, are you ready? Some think it’s pretty lame and commercialized but I just LOVE, love – friendship love, romantic love, family love, whatever it is, I’m down to celebrate the mushy gushy love. I’m single, so there’s no pressure of what to get someone or worrying if he’ll step up the way he’s supposed to. This year I’m celebrating Galentine’s Day with my girlfriends!

When I think of living the good life I think of 80% exploration and 20% relaxing, the key to a good life! I remember watching a documentary on “How To Be Happy” and one of the things that made that person happy was having new things in their life: whether that be a new hobby, new location or new challenge. For me that new thing is exploring.

Love is a gift and I was so honored to celebrate Samantha Carisch and Taylor Sinclair at The Knot Dream Wedding last week. Not ever having met Samantha and Taylor I wasn’t sure what to expect from the day, but I can say they’re the type of people you fall in love with instantly.

As women, we know, Valentine’s Day isn’t every guy’s favorite holiday. Some guys are planing months ahead but let’s be honest, that’s not the norm. If you’re one of the last minute types, don’t fret, I have some last minute Valentine’s Day ideas that will be sure to wow your babe. (Most are local in LA, but the same idea applies wherever you are!)

1. Valentine’s Day Couples Hot Stone Foot Massage

hot stone foot massage (30 minutes) $45

You can’t go wrong with a little pampering, and she’ll love it even more that you suggest to go with her. No shape, no buff, no color…just ahhh. This relaxing treatment begins with a soak in calming scented water then continues with a restorative and soothing hot stone massage enhanced with côte’s 100% organic argan oil. Relax and feel the penetrating warmth ease and relieve your tension.

A service at côte includes complimentary champagne, rose, coffee, lemonade!  Services offered inside or on the outside patio. Location: 11714 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles CA (Brentwood neighborhood)

2. Something special from Elodie K

I wrote about this boutique previously and I simply love it. Located on Melrose Place, a quick stop the boutique and you’ll be sure to leave with something special. I love their beautiful caftans, jewelry and special options that will make sure to make your lady feel beautiful on Valentine’s Day.

3. Romance her with a picnic (Budget Friendly)

This option is contingent to the weather, I know, but you can plan something similar at home if it’s too cold outside. (Think lots of candles, floor pillows and chill music) But here in LA, this is an easy one and always an impressive one. Simply grab a basket from Target and fill it with fruit, cheese, crackers, wine, and a blanket. I’m OBSESSED with picnics…super cute idea for you Galentine’s Date, too!

Whatever you do on Valentine’s Day, remember the day is about love and not just the romantic kind. Remember to love yourself first, the rest will follow. Spend some time relaxing, doing what makes you happy, pampering yourself and for goodness sake, don’t let this holiday ever get you down. It’s a beautiful day to celebrate love on all its form.

With love…..SWP. xx

With the new year here, it’s a good time to prepare ourself for the upcoming year and create some good habits. For most, diet + exercise seems to be at the top of our New Years Resolution list. So, I thought now was a better time than ever to share about my personal journey to finding my best weight, because like most women, we’ve tried it all and struggled over the years. I FINALLY feel that my relationship with food is at a very healthy place and I truly believe that’s one of the first steps in being the weight you want to be. Warning, this is one of my longer posts but if this topic interests you, I think you’ll enjoy it. I’m writing this because the fashion industry is obsessed with being skinny, which to me isn’t healthy.
