Vinebox is a subscription based wine service that sends you different wines each season, or you can create your own (makes a great gift). The packaging couldn’t be cuter…glass vials and a sleek box.

First stop, Nordstrom where I spotted these gorge Valentino Rock Stud Flair slides, along with The Great Army short (on sale), and Stripe cotton linen top.  Next stop, Anthropologie which was stocked with cute pieces from Antik Batik the Camilla dressGisele dress, and Paola blouse.

Camp Out

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We had friends over for a social distancing Middle Eastern dinner. On the menu was my lavash chips, smashed potatoes, shawarma chicken, and Israeli salad. Dave and I tried several new California wines that came highly recommended (mini wine tasting), Santa Lucia Highlands Wine 2018, Green & Red Vineyard Zinfandel, and O’Shaughnessy Cabernet 2017 (tasted in the order listed). We finished off the weekend with a NYC themed Father’s Day which consisted of Magnolia Bakery Banana pudding, a Father’s Day Gift Box from Katz’s Deli, and dinner with my family.
