CHICAGO TRAVEL VLOG

Travel

First travel blog waddup!!

Well this is kind of exciting. Just made my very first travel vlog! Still getting a hang of this whole “vlogging” thing, but so far I really like it. It’s so fun to be able to bring you along with me wherever I go! ✈️

This video shares some fun things I did for my first time visiting Chicago.

Posting today from Park City, Utah. We are about to go out and attempt to find some skiing here, but there is legit NO SNOW. Might go over to Deer Valley and see if there is more skiing there. Park City has one run open…. 😭 I WILL FIND SOMEWHERE TO SKI GOD DAMNIT!

CHICAGO SNAPS

Travel

Coat: Etnica

After a fun weekend away, I lay here in a bed of sickness and pain 😭😭😭 Flying is the worst. Actually, maybe it’s just my shiteous immune system but either way, girl is now sick. And tomorrow we are leaving for a ski trip to Park City.

SO NOT COOL.

So this is a public message to my body… GET IT TOGETHER GIRL. Cannot be sick for the first ski weekend of the year!! 😩

Anywho, while I am chilling in bed doing important things like catching up with all my missed Kardashian episodes (Kylie is sooooo preggers… amirite? Girl has been hiding from the media for months now and only wears massive baggy t-shirts. TELL US PLS IM DYING HERE!!! 😂) I am also going through my photos from Monday in Chicago!

Was my first time in the city and oh my god did I love it. Real for realz. Didn’t really expect much out of Chicago, not sure why, but I was very impressed. We had great food (if you are ever in Chicago go to Eataly, it’s the best. Used to eat there in Milan all the time!) and even better drinks.

There was this epic cocktail spot called The Aviary and they have hands down the craziest cocktails ever. I was snapping like a madwoman and even got in trouble for using flash. *Eyeroll* can’t tame me.

Oh and of course, we went and saw the bean. It is a very majestic bean. But more on that once I finish editing my vlog from the day. Hopeeeefully that will be up tomorrow, but don’t hold me to that. 😜

Okay back to go drink as many litres of water as possible to try and fight off this damn cold. Uhg. My lyyyfeeeee.

LOL.

OK GOING NOW.

Biiiii ❤️ 💛 💚 💙 💜

SKINNY BELLE COCKTAILS

Food

Let’s make a Rosemary Spritz together! Because, Tuesday 😉

OHHHHHH YESSSSSSS PEOPLE!

My new series has finally arrived! 🎉

🍸 SKINNY BELLE COCKTAILS 🍸

I AM SO EXCITED.

Ok, getting it together now. 😝

So, what is “Skinny Belle Cocktails“?

**(Or “Boozy Belle”… lol haven’t decided on an official name yet.)

“Skinny Belle Cocktails” / “Boozy Belle” is a weekly YouTube series where we all can get together and make a cocktail to help cure the winter blues! And, Tuesdays just generally suck so why not have a festive beverage to spice things up a bit. 😉

I’m so excited to do this with you guys because I have been experimenting and making some pretty fab cocktails (if I do say so myself) for a while now, and it will be fun to share them!

Plus, it’s not nearly as hard to make fancy drinks as you may think. 😜

I’ll just be doing this for the winter months, to help cure them winter blues. 💙

The first cocktail we’re going to make is called a Rosemary Spritz! And yes, it is just as festive as it sounds. 😄

Ingredients for Rosemary Spritz (per champagne flute)

– 1 oz fresh squeezed OJ

– 2 dashes orange bitters

– 1 peel of an orange, squish it before you put it in the glass

– 1 rosemary sprig

– Prosecco or champagne!

 

If you are strapped for time and want to skip ahead in the video, here are the timestamps:

2:20 – Building our drink!

 

CHEERS EVERYBODY! 🍸 See ya next Tuesday 😉

FEELS LIKE FALL

Outfits

Watch: Daniel Wellington (use code “ROBYNKIMB” for 15% off!)

Finalllyyyyy I am in some colder weather! Never thought I’d say those words… lol.

It has been super weird experiencing “fall” in LA. There really is no drop in the temperature and it’s still just straight up hot. Maybe in the morning it gets a bit cool, but other than that… full on summer in my opinion. 😂

This past week I went to Wisconsin for the first time to my boyfriend’s parents lakehouse. (Eeeep!)

So pretty there I couldn’t believe it! Totally reminded me of Canada with all the falling leaves and the gorgeous nature. About. That. Life.

So naturally I had to take advantage of the leaves like the basic b I am and take a bunch of pics. Because, I can’t EVEN. 😉

After we spent a few days in Wisconsin we are back in Chicago now. Spent the day downtown yesterday and filmed a little vlog! Will share later this week.

Anywho, just wanted to say hi. 👋🏻

BUDGET BEAUTY HACKS

Beauty

Just posted on Youtube!

Hey everyone! It’s been kind of quiet here this week, eh. I took a bit of a break for Thanksgiving, and I’ve been traveling this week for family things from LA –> Illinois –> Wisconsin –> Illinois. Right now we are back in Chicago, and going to spend the next two days here.

Super stoked to explore Chicago, have never been before and I’ve heard fantastic things. Deep dish pizza is going to be in and around my mouth today. 😩🍕 I am going to look like that 5 year old kid eating an ice cream cone with half the cone just all over her face 😂 Can’t. Wait. 👌🏻

Anywho, while I am exploring Chicago today, I put together this video where I share my best budget beauty hacks. The most powerful one I share costs $0… Yeah. That’s right, $0.

The reason this video is so great is I am someone who does spend a significant chunk of money on high quality beauty products. That being said, if something is expensive just for the sake of being expensive… I won’t buy it. When I use budget friendly products, it is only because I truly believe that product does the best job.

So, check out Skinny Belle Youtube, if you like, subscribe and share! 💞
