Year in review 2018

black white scarf dress

The end of 2018 is almost near! Last year, I made separate posts for my favorite moments, nail polish, and outfits. I thought this year it might be more efficient to condense everything into one post. It was a fun, and crazy year! There were a lot of fun moments, trends, and styles. This post will reflect on my favorite post from each month. Why remember the tough times from the 2018? Let’s focus on the fluffy and fun!

Without further ado, here were my favorite moments from each month during 2018.

January

san jose style bloggers

Twinning with Dawn! This was such a fun post. We had a blast running around Santana Row taking photos. My daughter played photographer and she had so much snapping our pictures. She even told us where to stand, and what to do! You can see the original post here.

February

Braving the cold weather in February at New York Fashion Week with my friends! This photo was taken on National Pizza Day, I mean, why in the world would fashion week get in the way of pizza? I hope we can celebrate this delicious day again in 2019; at the same place! You can see my NYFW antics here.

February was more than just fashion and work, it was family fun time! OK, so that means I have TWO favorite moments from February, can you blame me? This snow-filled family vacation in Tahoe was a blast! You can read about it here.

March

round bag trend spring 2018

I went a little crazy in March, and accumulated a few new bags. My favorite was this cute little round one from Brahmin. I wore it all spring and summer; I still reach for it despite the warm weather color! I can’t wait to rock it again this spring. You can read about it here.

April

In April, Dawn and I hosted a fun-filled event at the Chico’s store at Santana Row. It was so much fun! You can read about it here.

May

May was a fun, fashionable month. That being said, attending the Go Red fundraiser with my friend Laura was definitely the highlight. It was fabulous to learn more about heart health, while giving to a great cause. Plus, I won 49er tickets in the silent auction! Love! You can read about the event here.

June

soma cool nights summer pajamas

This family vacation was so much fun! When school was over, my family went up to Tahoe for a few days to unwind. While in Tahoe, I worked on a blog post which included my daughters. We had so much fun working together; it felt like a game instead of work! My girls were so happy to be part of the blog, plus, they fell in love with SOMA pajamas and keep asking me to get them more pairs. SOMA gained two new fans through this collaboration, and I gained a valuable bonding experience with my daughters which helped teach them about work ethics. Thank you SOMA!

July

ten sushi seattle things to do in seattle with kid

July was a crazy month! While a lot of sadness clouded July due to a death in the family, I am forever grateful for this family trip to Seattle which took my mind off things, and gave our family a much-needed form of relaxation. You can read about our favorite places to eat here, and fun places to go here.

August

August was so much fun! While there were many personal and professional moments to reflect on, the Chico’s trip to Florida was definitely the highlight of the month, if not the year. I met so many fabulous women on this trip, and I learned so much about the design process at Chicos’s headquarters. This was such an amazing trip, please take a moment to read about day one, and day two, here.

September

fall outfits ideas

These photos were taken a couple weeks after my surgery. I love all of the colors, and remembering how I powered through the day to visit with my friend Dawn, and snap a few photos. You can see the original post here.

October

personalized gift ideas special gifts

My favorite post in October had to be this beautiful pendant. I love how it is personalized to reflect my children. You can read the original article here.

November

One of my favorite things to do with my children, is teach them the importance of giving back to the community. It was so much fun working with my daughters and adidas to bring my love of volunteerism to you. You can read about it here.

December

grey faux fur coat san jose street style

It’s a little hard to pick something from December considering the month is not over yet, but I decided to go with this soft and cozy faux fur coat. I wear it all the time, and my daughter took these photos; which turned out amazing! You can read about it here.

That was it! What were your favorite moment in 2018?

Cozy for the holidays with SOMA

It’s here! The holiday season is underway, which means it is time to sport cozy holiday pajamas! Yay! I’m loving these PJ’s from my favorite intimate brand, SOMA. They are super soft and cozy; plus they have a festive candy cane stripe which is super cute!

One of our holiday traditions is decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. I’m not big on braving the Black Friday crowds, which is why I do my shopping online for Black Friday, it’s so much easier! Instead, we spend the day decorating the house in our pajamas. It’s super cozy, and it is really fun to get into the holiday spirit!

These pajamas are perfect for decorating since they are comfortable, and have a holiday candy cane stripe. Aren’t they fun? Love them!

You can grab your own pair of festive pajamas from SOMA for the holidays online here.

What to wear on an airplane

Have you ever wondered what to wear on an airplane? Maybe you travel a lot and are looking for something new and comfortable for your next flight. Or perhaps you haven’t traveled recently and need to replace your Pan-Am bag and blue suit? Well, I have found the most comfortable clothing for flying! It’s SOMA Intimates new Style Essentials collection!

Long flights sometimes drive me a little bit crazy because I am trapped in a tube, who knows how high above the ground, for five to six hours. It is really boring. I can’t go for a run, I can’t jump and down, and I feel stuck in my seat. Since I am stuck in a seat, which isn’t exactly comfortable, I always need to make sure my airplane attire is as comfortable as possible. Thank goodness for SOMA Intimates Style Essentials collection!

The SOMA Intimates Style Essentials clothing is extremely soft. Their clothing is so soft and comfortable, sometimes I forget I am in street clothes and not wearing pajamas! haha

I love these cropped leggings for travel. They are really soft and easy to wear. They allow me to get as comfortable as possible in my airplane seat; and that’s quite a feat! This blue tunic tee is super soft and comfy, it’s great for being comfy at home, travel, or anytime you want to wear something which is no-fuss. You may recognize this black jacket, it’s my current go-to cover up. This jersey jacket is really soft and the perfect weight for fall weather. It’s great on foggy days and perfect for air travel. Love!

You can find more comfy air travel options from SOMA Intimates online at Soma.com.
