Hi guys!! I’m so excited to FINALLY be sharing this post with you.

Girls’ Staycation at the Mountain Shadows in Paradise Valley, AZ

WHAT A WEEKEND!!!

San Diego: Best (& Instagrammable) Coffee Shops, Restaurants, & Bars

Southern California Trip – Santa Monica Beach

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dr Pepper®. The opinions and text are all mine. As many of you know, last month my boyfriend & I headed out to Southern California for Memorial Day weekend for a little summer fun!
