BIRTHDAY MONTH: WISH LIST.

IT’S SEPTEMBER!

Didn’t August just fly right on by? Since I was so busy, I hardly had any time to blog. Also, with school starting- it’s been hectic. I’m officially a college SENIOR! It’s been a long time coming! “One more year left” is what I keep repeating to myself when things become too overwhelming. Although I CANNOT wait to be done- I’m going to try and savor the last moments of being a college student. {it’s been so nice to make my own schedule & not working}

Besides that- It’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH! I am turning 25 years old on the 30th! Now that is something I cannot wrap my head around.  Mid-twenties. WHAT? A lot of people I know are having babies, getting married, have “adult” jobs, and  it’s just crazy to think that this is an age where these things start happening. But I’m looking forward to twenty-five! I’m curious what new things I’ll do this year/ where life will take me.

Here are some cute things I’d like to have/ or really like at the moment:

SPERRY QUILTED DUCK BOOTS.

 

PATAGONIA WOMEN’S COTTON QUILT HOODY.

 

 

 

 

PATAGONIA WOMEN’S CLEAN COLOR SWEATSHIRT.

 

 

 

 

VASQUE BREEZE HIKING BOOTS.

 

 

 

THE NORTH FACE ISABELLA DAYPACK.

 

Notice a theme? I really want to get more involved outdoors: hiking, camping, etc. I need a pair of hiking boots! So that would be an amazing gift!

25TH BIRTHDAY IDEAS: WINE TASTING IN SONOMA COUNTY.

It’s officially August! Which means my birthday is next month! And not any birthday, it’s a milestone birthday: twenty-five! Craziness. So I have been trying to think of ideas of what to do. I’ve been to Napa Valley for wine tasting (even celebrated my 21st there), but I’ve never gone to Sonoma. I think this will be the perfect place to celebrate officially being in my mid-twenties: drink delicious wine and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

I’ve narrowed the list down to 5 wineries I’m interested in visiting, for the weekend getaway:

 

1. FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA WINERY | Geyserville, Ca.

 

 

2. VIANSA SONOMA | Sonoma, Ca.

 

 

3. FERRARI CARANO VINEYARDS & WINERY | Healdsburg, Ca.

 

 

4. GLORIA FERRER CAVES & VINEYARDS | Sonoma, Ca.

 

 

5. JORDAN VINEYARD & WINERY | Healdsburg, Ca.

 

 

If anyone has been to Sonoma, and has any good winery recommendations that I haven’t listed, I’d love to know what they are. Also any hotel/restaurant/coffee shop recommendations would be greatly appreciated as well!

PRODUCTS I WANT TO TRY: SUNSCREEN.

With my 25th birthday creeping around the corner (September 30th), I’ve been doing more research about skincare. I’ll  be in my mid-twenties (when the hell did this happen?), and that means I really need to start the “prevention” stage. Prevent fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and aging skin. It actually stresses me out a little- but I don’t want to be one of those women you see with horrible sun-damaged skin! It’s not a good look.

So, with that said I’ve been on the hunt for a good face sunscreen. I’m totally one for drug-store products, but I think splurging for skincare is an investment, so I don’t mind spending a little more $$. I also want to start buying more products that are cruelty-free & don’t test on animals!

  • Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 PA+++

I have never heard of this brand until stumbling across it on Sephora. I was doing a “top rated” search on face sunscreens and this one came up. I looked into the brand & was impressed. They are a Japanese brand that do not test on animals. This bottle retails for $65.00 & when I get some extra money, I will be purchasing it.

 

  • Farmacy Green Screen Daily Environmental Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen with Echinacea GreenEnvy™

I have used Farmacy products before, and I really liked them! They do not test on animals, which is a huge plus; and this bottle only retails for $36.00! If you don’t have a lot of money to splurge, this is a great option. It has 4.7 out of 5.0 stars on Sephora, I think it’s worth testing/trying out.

 

  • Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++

Another option that is cruelty free & not tested on animals: Murad. I have never used Murad products before, but have only heard the best things about them. This bottle retails for $65.00, and has 5/5 stars on Sephora’s website. If I don’t try out Tatcha’s product (see above, #1) then I will try this product out.

 

If you have any face sunscreen recommendations I’d love to hear them! I’d love to try anything with an SPF of 30 or higher! Or if you have tried any of these products- tell me what you thought about them, I’m super curious & want to buy the best one possible.
