Have you ever had one of those days when you just felt a little bit gloomy? For me, that ‘one of those days’ was today!

During my walk I usually find something funny that seems to always manage to make me smile. Happiness often finds you at the most unusual places, in the most unexpected timing.

When I was in elementary school, a group of young mothers convened around my friends and me and started to playfully matched their sons with their daughters. Little Elizabeth with Fernando. Sporty Christina with Anton. Ten minutes of giggles and everyone was matched up. All except one. Me.

In all fairness, my mother was not there. She couldn’t make lunch time then. The young mothers had paired all the girls and matched them with the boys, none of them had even attempted to match me. Worst, they did not even mention my name at all.

My first glamping experience was with Featherdown (unfortunately they are no longer offering a US location). We went to Northern California to sleep in a tent, anchored right in the middle of a hundred year old olive orchard. It was one of the best experiences! Our tent was basically a tiny house. It has its own living room, kitchen and bedroom. There’s no electricity, we depended on moonlight and campfire. I, personally, don’t like camping, but this is a whole other kind of camping. Our activities include a visit to the beehives, picking eggs in the morning, feeding the cattle, milking the cow, and a picnic lakeside with a moonlit mountain in our background. If you are a couple, you need to go and experience glamping under the stars. It was spectacular!

I am obsessed with Sugarfina flagship candy boutique located in Beverly Hills. This is a far cry from Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory circa 1971. Candies and bite-size chocolates housed in acrylic cubes lined the cream wall adorned with paper flowers, like little sugar soldiers. As if champagne gummy bears are not enough of the best seller title, a collaboration with Whispering Angel rosé will put you as person #14,001 on their waiting list. You can now rosé all day while popping those Sugarfina rosé gummy roses.
