Chico’s #HowBoldAreYou spring style event at Santana Row recap

Thank you to everyone who came out last Thursday night for the Chico’s #HowBoldAreYou spring style event! Dawn from Fashion Should be Fun and I hosted the event, and we had so much fun! Like almost every-time we do something together, we forget to get a photo together! Haha, you can remember with me by clicking here.

The Chico’s #HowBoldAreYou spring style event at Santana Row was so much fun! I really enjoyed meeting many of you in-person and helping you shop! It was so much fun to see my favorite necklace sell out in the first half hour of the event!

If you haven’t seen my favorite necklace from Chico’s yet, you can check it out online here. It is three necklaces in one, clipped to an extension chain. The necklaces are all reversible; they can be worn blue or silver. The necklaces can be worn alone, in a pair, or all three together; giving endless mix and match possibilities. There are so many options with this necklace! It is perfect for traveling because you can wear it on the plane, then you have several necklace options while on your trip! I can’t wait to take mine on vacation with me this summer!

The event was filled with shopping, champagne and other drinks, mini cupcakes, and mini cheesecakes! So yummy! If you watched my insta-stories, you may have noticed Dawn and I dancing the night away; we can get pretty silly!

Yup, we’re silly! Let’s face it, how can you not be excited and get a little silly when you are surrounded by fabulous clothing and accessories! The Chico’s spring 2018 collection is so pretty! There are amazing bold colors, incredible styles; and I even spotted a few fun dresses which would be perfect for a Derby party!

Chico’s also has a section of the store dedicated to travel clothing! It’s the perfect packable, mix and match selection of fashionable and fabulous clothing. I will definitely be checking it out for my summer vacation plans!

Sometimes, you just need to take a selfie. Dawn and I got one photo of just the two of us! Haha Well, I guess it’s about 1/3 of her face in the photo; but you can tell it’s us! Haha

It was so much fun seeing everyone at the event! Thank you again to everyone who came out to visit with us, and shop from Chico’s fabulous spring collection. If you have not had a chance yet to check out the collection, definitely visit your local Chico’s store or check it out online at chicos.com.

I loved my dress from the event! It’s really comfortable and the fabric is great for traveling; it does not wrinkle! This dress runs a little bit large, if I pick one up in another color I will size down.

Thanks for all of your support!

XOXO

Housecalls with the Heal App | at home doctor visits in the Bay Area

heal app review housecall doctor appointment silicon valley

Life is so busy! The older my kids get, the more activities they are involved in. Couple this with my husbands’ work schedule, my work schedule, home-schooling two kids, and our volunteer schedules; and that doesn’t leave much time for anything else! If someone in my family needs to schedule a doctor’s appointment, it throws our entire schedule out of whack; not to mention traffic here in Silicon Valley makes it nearly impossible to keep a tight schedule.

Since I have three kids, we are always trying to fit doctor appointments into our schedule. When I heard about the Heal App, I was intrigued! The Heal App is an easy way to schedule a doctor appointment in your own home. You can pick a day and time which works well with your schedule, and you don’t have to fight traffic to get to it on time. I found I could schedule a doctor’s appointment at a time which was convenient for our family’s schedule. This was groundbreaking for us!

My son just turned ten, so it was time for his annual check-up. Since it is baseball season, my son’s baseball schedule has overtaken our calendar. In addition to his schedule, my two daughters have sports, music, Girl Scouts, and volunteer work on the calendar. There wasn’t a free day to bring him to the doctor! Thankfully, the Heal App has weekend appointments, so we were able to squeeze in an appointment for him between his baseball game and my daughter’s archery practice. Love that!

My son’s doctor arrived for our 2pm appointment on time with a Medical Assistant and a suitcase full of equipment. They were warm and friendly, and my son was instantly relaxed and happy. They set up their tools on our coffee table and hung an eye chart on the wall for the exam. After they were set up, we went over his medical history, and talked about any concerns with his health that I might have.

It was a really fun appointment for my son; who doesn’t love being comfy in their own home during an exam! He told me after the appointment that he enjoyed having his appointment at home and preferred it to going into the office for the exam. He also liked that he wasn’t exposed to sick patients in the waiting room at the doctors’ office. For an annual exam, I have to agree with him! That is a huge bonus! By using the Heal App, you don’t have to sit in a waiting room where sick patients are leaving germs behind.

Here in Silicon Valley we have so many over-scheduled families, couples, and individuals. Not only are we an active bunch here in the Bay Area, we are plagued with some of the worst traffic in the country. The Heal App is an effortless way to reduce stress and schedule a doctor’s appointment on our own time. I love how easy it is to use!

Plus, the Heal App uses our insurance the same way it is used at a doctor’s office, so there isn’t any added cost to using the app. Love that! Plus, if an appointment isn’t covered by insurance, a housecall is only $99. That’s a great deal!

We loved using the Heal App for our son’s ten-year-old wellness check-up. We will definitely use it again in the future! It’s such an easy way to schedule a doctor’s appointment that fits into our busy schedule.

You can download the Heal App onto your smart phone in the App store. For more information, please visit their website at Heal.com. Also, I have a $20 coupon code for my readers! Use coupon code BayAreaFashionista to save $20 off your visit! Love!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the Heal App as much as I do!

Spring stripes and a twirl

Happy spring! Our weather is FINALLY jumping into the 70’s and 80’s! It was so nice to be able to wear my warm weather clothing over the weekend! I wore this outfit to church on Sunday, and for a meeting later in the afternoon. This skirt is so comfortable and perfect for warm spring weather!

My daughter is taking a photography class through school and she took these pictures after church on Sunday. She had me twirling, and moving my skirt like crazy! I think some people on the sidewalk thought I was insane. haha That being said, it was really fun having an eleven-year-old direct me in my photos! She really loves photography and is having so much fun with it. She has a really good eye for nature photos, and her landscape photography is beautiful. We live in the perfect place for those types of photos!

If you are looking for a comfy and casual spring outfit, which isn’t made out of denim, I highly recommend this skirt! It looks really cute with a basic tee, or a twist tee. You can wear it casual with flip flops, or dress it up with espadrille wedges like I did. Well, by “dress it up” I mean “put together casual” versus “just threw this together casual” haha if that makes any sense Maybe I’m babbling? OK, I’ll stop.

I hope your spring weather is warming up too! Thanks for stopping by!
