Bar Cart 101 & Essentials

You guys always see me pouring my Rosé over my bar cart and have asked and ASKED for this and I'm sorry its taken me so long!! The low down on everything bar cart essentials is here including an entire stoppable library below!

1. Have the drinks you actually drink and ask your friends who frequent your bar cart often to bring their own bottle or just have mini ones on hand. Make sure your bar cart suits YOUR Needs, not Pinterest!

2. Add personality to your bar cart. Find your bar cart style with Pinterest and add quirky styling pieces to give it character, like flowers, art, signs, trays, wood slabs etc.

3. Have the right tools. Every bar cart needs the bar essentials to make drinks and serve your guests, so make sure you have an ice bucket, glasses, napkins, coasters, cork openers, ice bucket, ice tongs, and the list goes on!

4. Break up the space with trays, wood slabs and more! Give the eye something to focus on so your space doesn't seem cluttered. 

5. Make it YOURS!


Chicken arugula salad

happy new year! if you're looking to eat healthier or just looking to change up your diets here's an easy lunch salad and is sooooo delicious you can eat it everyday!

firstly, everything I used can be substituted with your faves, for example, use raspberries instead of blueberries, or skip the dressing etc. I want to also add that I think using some crisp greens in here helps too when using so many creamy ingredients. It is really up to you!
start with greens, I'm using arugula. Next add chicken salad, this one from trader joes is so yummy and has the perfect hint of sweetness, eat on its own or add to a bigger salad like I am doing here!

Next add nuts, blueberries, olive oil and even more grilled chicken to make this salad filling, and top off with a sprinkle of salt and dressing. I'm using a raspberry vinaigrette that I have loved for many years! Use a sweet and tangy dressing for this salad. 

Serve with a soup or a pita bread for a pocket of lunch goodness!




As you guys have seen if you follow me on social media, I have been traveling more and more for the past 5 years. From Miami to LA, Vegas, Paris, Rome and MORE. visiting these places and accomplishing the things I have wanted to for years, is all due to making vision boards and setting intentions. I try my best to make a vision board, whether its a huge poster board on your bedroom wall or a simple phone background with photos; seeing something that you want to accomplish in this year everyday will truly bring it to you. Remember that you have to put the work in as well but in this blog post I will give you some tips on how to create a vision board and how to decide what to put on it. 

One easy to way to create a board is to use Pinterest to screenshot photos of the things you'd like and things that inspire you and motivate you to meet your goals. Use a collage app to place all the photos together and use the final product as a phone or desktop background. The other way is to use a poster board from the dollar store and physically cut out images from magazines or print images and paste them to the board. Use markers and other tools to get creative and truly make your vision board come to life. This way is the most immersive and childlike. I have done both ways and I honestly love both.  

Another way I like to involve my goals and subliminally attract my dreams is to make certain photos my phone background or buy planners, phone cases etc that represent those goals. For example buy a planner that represents traveling or a calendar with different cars etc. In 2017 I purchased a planner with a map of Paris on the cover because I wanted to go to Paris in 2018. I had no idea how I would make it there but I ended up going to Paris AND Venice in 2018 and I believe it was because everyday I saw that planner.  Believe in your goals and make a step every day towards them.
