Savannah Girls' Weekend: 3 Things to do!

Savannah was a great destination for a recent bachelorrette trip to celebrate a sweet friend, Katie. If you are planning an upcoming party for a friend, consider these spots!

1. Savannah Slow Ride

Oh my gosh, this was so much fun! Reserve your tickets in advance ($30 per person) and try not to cancel. You have to pay for the cancelled spots if they don't get filled. You pedal around Savannah while stopping at fun and historic bar spots. Drinks are not included in the price, but some of the bars offer specials. Be sure to bring someone's phone who can plug their music into the system. It was great to listen to some old school NSync while we pedaled around the city! Also, bring some extra cash if you want to tip your guide!

2. Savannah Smiles Dueling Piano Bar

The talent here was amazing! We went on a Saturday night and I'm sure they have different people other nights, but we sat and listened for at least 3 hours. They are true performers and put on a wonderful show! There is a cover ($5) but if you do Savannah Slow Ride, you get in free!

3. RSVP Skinnies

Of course, the best part of any party is a fun group of friends (and some light cocktails)! Have you heard of Skinnies? It's a new cocktail mix, but better! With no artificial sweeteners, no coloring, and no calories, it just may be the perfect mix-in! They are the perfect amount of sweet and are available in flavors like Mai Tai, Gimlet, and Margarita. It even tells you what type of alcohol to mix in!

RSVP skinnies did provide samples, but opinions are my own.

What is your fave city for a girl's weekend?!

3 Beauty Stocking Stuffer Ideas

1) Maple Holistics Argan Oil
A few years ago, I switched from heavily scented lotions and body washes to Cera Ve, VaniCream, and Plain Dove Soap. I have wanted to try fun and natural products for a while, but rarely actually buy them!  I have been using the Argan oil for about a month now and I can really see a difference in the way my skin looks. It seems to be more evenly tone and has yet to dry out (despite running in 30 degree weather). A dime sized drop is all it takes. I wash my face each night with Proactiv Plus, then apply a small amount of argan oil. With the leftover oil, I smooth out my hair--dual purpose! It seems to last and last!

I was provided a free bottle for my review, but all opinions are my own.

If you want to try it for yourself, follow this link. Most of the products are a perfect stocking stuffer size. You can also sign up for a free sample, here. There are so many products to choose from. 

2) Regular Girl Fiber 
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of fiber. From helping to lower cholesterol, helping to feel full and stay that way, to helping stay regular, fiber has so much to offer! While it's not your conventional stocking stuffer, the regular girl on your list, will love this added benefit! With a blend of prebiotic and probiotics, gut health is totally attainable in 2017! I am an affiliate for RG so be sure to use this link when you buy! (I make a small commission, but would never recommend something I don't use myself!). Get in on their fall sale here!

3. Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin
I got my first set of these about 5 years ago and have literally worn them most days since. I don't like to wear my hair down to work, so I throw it up in these pins and by the end of the work day, there's added body thanks to the bun style (but no pony tail wave!). To say I love them would be an understatement. I tell everyone I know about the wonderful-ness of these pins!

Video Recipe: Buffalo Cauliflower

In September, I went to a camp teaching kids how to transition into the adult world. Naturally, in the initial meeting process, I immediately wanted to incorporate food! I mean, these guys need to learn how to transition into making their own meals too, right?

These kids were awesome! They divided into teams and each team was given a recipe. I started small and now know that these guys could have handled more complicated recipes.

I absolutely love the chaos that comes with a kitchen. I have been a cook, a waitress, helped with catering,  helped with my dad's restaurant, and had some food prep classes all starting at the age of 13 so being in the kitchen is the place I feel the most comfortable. What I wasn't comfortable about is the fact that these kids may laugh me out of that kitchen when they see cauliflower. But, when I heard them say "wow! I didn't know I liked cauliflower" all of a sudden, I was back in my happy place!
