Hi, hello from Aspen!

We decided to take a quick trip to one of our favorite cities to SKI. The weather is ideal right now & it’s also incredibly romantic. Of course Michael went crazy last November & bought too much snow gear so at last it’s being put to good use?

If you follow along on Snapchat you know we’ve been skiing, eating, exploring the snow…& EATING.

Since Michael is a way better skier ( don’t worry he reminds me every 10 seconds if I forget ) I decided to have a spa day yesterday & kind of shut off of social media while he hit the black diamonds.

No problem there because there’s really nothing better than a spa day.

Now here’s the thing about spa days: they come with different experiences.

To be real, you never really know what you’re going to get…

I feel like I’ve had my fair share of diverse spa situations while traveling: a male masseuse getting too close, the therapists who talked throughout the entire massage ( NOOOO! ), lots of lympathic drainage, & a facial with snail in …

I have a new tip.

A tip that has transformed my neck pain. A tip that has given me energy. A tip that feels really good. Really good.

It’s simple, nothing expensive. Quick. To the point. Anyone can do it.

You might already know the tip if you follow along on Snapchat or Insta. Lately it’s been so efficient for me to immediately share products I like immediately with you guys via these Apps. I am a human guinea pig. I try things all the time for you guys. There are so many things I never share because they suck. If I choose to share anything know that I like it, I use it, I believe it. If I don’t, I don’t share it. Easy.

Anyway, the tip- let’s get to it: AN ACUPRESSURE MAT.

It’s kind of like a little bed of nails?

Michael introduced me to the product.

Michael has this problem. He orders too much off Amazon.

It’s absurd actually. He orders too many books, weird contraptions ( do we really need a crockpot & hot chocolate maker? ) & random vitamins ( without asking me…& we have to send half of them back because …

I’m a beauty junkie.

So you should know finding products I love, love, love is one of my favorite things to do.

I’m all about the healthy skin & the minimal makeup trend right now too. I feel like it’s here to stay so I’m totally embracing it. I’ll even do a bare face to go out. It’s so refreshing.

Obviously I want to share what I’m stocking up on: a few amazing products to boost my complexion. No heavy cake-face makeup. And of course a good face mask.

Let’s get right to it: 3 essential products for glowy skin.

{ FIND THE GLAM GLOW FIRMING MASK HERE }

First off, this smells like a Pina Colada so it perfect because of my Mexico obsession. Secondly, it comes with an application brush. Genius. I’m a major fan of this line in general. I’ve had this mask

My Moody, Modern Wedding Invitations

Modern Wedding Invitations 1 | by the skinny confidential Surprise, surprise I became the pickiest bitch on the planet five seconds before my wedding invites needed to be sent out…so THANK GOD BLISS & BONE commented on a pre-wedding Instagram pic.

I had looked all over the Internet to find a wedding invite that didn’t look like a wedding invite.

Nothing was working for me.

As we know I’m very specific at the last-minute always.

The invitation sets the scene. It sets the tone. The vibe. AND OF COURSE the invitation needed to start the story off.

So we couldn’t go with white, bridal, glitter, etc.

Literally after looking for gothic invites EVERYWHERE, I stumbled across BLISS & BONE on Instagram.

Here’s the deal I know what I like the second I see what I like…HA. And BLISS & BONE were it. Immediately. No questions asked.

Cindy, the founder, hopped on a call with me & I told her I wanted dark, Calla lilies with a twist. Then we asked you guys…and then…….

…BOY. Did she deliver.

Here’s the thing: sometimes I’m not the best at communicating exactly what’s in my head ( is anyone else like this? ). But Cindy immediately got …
