If you find yourself in Salt Lake City, The Grand America is the only way to go! This hotel is by far the best the salty city has to offer!

Chase and I have always loved staying at The Grand! You can find us here after a Jazz game, sleeping in, getting Sunday Brunch, enjoying the spa and maybe a couples massage, and then hitting the pool! (They have indoor & outdoor so they’ve got you covered no matter the season!) We also love to people watch in the grand lobby. There’s often weddings, corporate events, cute ladies out for tea, and nba teams staying at the hotel which makes for an enjoyable time while waiting for your car! The lobby often has live music being played ranging from bands to harp, and there’s always an enormous bouquets of flowers who’s aroma fills the room!

The Grand life with Chloé was a little different but just as magical and luxurious as ever before! We made a stop to the in house toy store and just about died! Everything from the store, to the toys, to the window displays were to die for! The Grand America’s toy store is New York status if you know what I mean! We definitely got a few new toys for Chloé!

All three of us Allens enjoyed our vibrant, spacious room, the delicious room service menu, and a cheerful staff helping us with whatever we needed!

It truly was a staycation to remember! <3

If you’re wanting to go on a couples getaway, family trip, or treat yourself to a little me time, then The Grand is for you! Hoping to see you there ASAP! xx



Black Friday is HERE and I’m doing all of my shopping online at Nordstrom! Nordstrom is one of my favorite one stop shops for the entire family, you simply can’t go wrong with Nordstrom! From the hottest styles of the season, to the best in tech and beauty, Nordstrom is hard to beat! (Not to mention, free shipping, their in store/same day pick up, incredible return policy, and hot Black Friday deals!) 

I wanted to share the things I’ve been shopping for family, friends, and myself of course! (You know I can’t turn down a good Nordstrom sale! With up to 60% off select items.. I’m in heaven!) <3


My women’s picks from top to bottom from left to right are;

1.  Rails LA flannel! I love a good plaid shirt, especially this time of year!!!! Rails LA makes the softest, most beautiful flannels! I won’t buy anything else! 

2. LaMer moisturizer. If you’re not sold on this price, go to Nordstrom and ask for a sample! THIS STUFF IS AMAZING! Huge game changer for your skin! One of my all time favorite products! 

3.  Uggs! They’re the most comfortable + warm shoe I own! I get a new pair every Christmas and think anybody would be stoked opening these comfy shoes on Christmas morning! Uggs are perfect for all ages! <3 

4.  Flower Bomb perfume! This is my go to for date night! It’s both me and Chases favorite scent by a landslide! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn this and been stopped in my tracks from by passers asking what perfume I’m wearing.. it’s THAT GOOD PPL!

5. A robe! Chase got me a robe last year for Christmas and I have loved and used it nearly every day since! This one comes in pink, blue, and grey, and the price is unbeatable!  

6. Another flannel from Rails LA! I just can’t get enough of these puppies!  

7. Nude lip kit from Mac! Perfect for your beauty babe or anyone who might want to subtly spice up their holiday look! Nude lips are where it’s at right now, and I don’t think they’re going anywhere anytime soon! This is a perfect gift with an even more perfect price!  

8. T3 Micro Whirl Trio! This is the curling wand I use for my hair every single day! Not only is it sleek and beautiful, but it works like a charm and holds curls all day! This is a must have item for me, and it should be for you too considering it’s on sale for Black Friday! 

9. Dior lip glow! (Pictured above with my favorite things!) This is a tinted lip balm that’s perfectly pink and goes smooth onto the lips! Great color and super hydrating! I use this stuff daily! (It also comes in multiple colors!)


For the men in our lives I have some good picks too! All approved by Chase + on his wish list! 

1. Movado watch! Bold, sleek, and stunning. A perfect piece for any man this holiday! And you can’t beat the price tag on it either! A STEAL!

2. Nike hoodie. Comes in black + green! Classic and cozy at its finest! (And you know it looks good on the fellas!)

3. Black Theory shirt. Theory is a favorite brand of ours! They’re clothing line is luxurious and timeless. You will never wear out of a shirt like this, nor will it go out of style! A perfect staple that every man should have in his closet!

Couch // Light (similar) // Coffee Table (similar // Rug (similar) // Coffe Table Book

Ever since we started building our home,  we’ve been on the hunt for the best furniture we can possibly find! (We’re officially all things house obsessed!)  

We scored when we found this beautiful modern couch from Burrow! We ordered this couch recently and it was shipped to our house in no time! Our Burrow was easy to set up, it’s comfortable, durable, and dang affordable! (They also offer financing on it through affirm!)

The thing we love very most about Burrows couches is you can easily switch the chaise to either end of the couch, and add or takeaway pieces! We haven’t found many couches like this on the market! You always have to select which side the chaise is on, but not with Burrow! This is perfect for us while we’re in the transitional stage of building and adding to our home collection!

We went with their Chaise King Sofa model and highly recommend it! In fact, we’re thibking about adding an arm chair and ottoman to complete the collection! 

Burrows come in a handful of sizes and shades, and there’s a few different options to tweek them to your ideal perfection! (Like the color of the legs, height on arm rests, etc!) We are excited to play around with this couch in our new home and see which way will look and fit best! 

Thanks for tuning in guys! Now, excuse us while we get our Netflix and chill on! xx

P.s. You can shop items we love for home down below! (Some of these we have already purchased! Any guesses on which ones?!) Simply click on a picture to shop an item!

HEY FAM! xx LONG TIME NO SEE EH?! I’m so glad to be back blogging again <3 it’s been a hot minute! I’ve been sick for nearly a month with heaven knows what.. some strange cold that I can’t kick but it’s starting to clear up finally! Shout out to my immune system for finally pulling through! (;

ANYWAYS, I’m not here to tell you about my nasty cold or give you excuses as to why I’ve been mia on the blog. I’m here to talk about NYFW!

NYFW is truly the most wonderful time of the year! It’s magic! You go to the city and see the prettiest clothes that will be coming out soon, you see your friends, your favorite designer, your favorite fashion bloggers on Instagram, your favorite model, even your favorite celebrity! EVERYONE’S THERE ALL TOGETHER AND ITS CRAZY! Especially for a small town country girl like me! It will never stop blowing my mind! (I remember last year passing Gigi Hadid as well as Aimee Song from Song of Style just walking down the street! Only in NY!)

You eat the best food, have access to the best shopping, hit the coolest events and parties, you watch the city start to turn gold with the leaves changing, you see the coolest trends and styles all over the runways and street, and experience a culture like no where else. Or at least like no where I’ve been before! 

If you haven’t been and have the opportunity sometime, GO! I promise, there’s nothing like it! And if you’re a first timer, I have a New York Travel Guide HERE! It goes over places to stay, discounts, where to eat, and MORE!  

Kk let’s get back to Fashion Week! This year I packed some outfits that were a more forward/stylish than my regular everyday wear, but not too far off! I love to dress casual and comfortable no matter the occasion! It’s just me! I did however spice up my accessories! My bags and shoes from Botkier were for sure the hottest items I sported! Good accessories are EVERYTHING! They can make or break an outfit, and they can make or break your time in the city!

In the city, once you’re out for the day you’re out! You can’t run back to your car and grab something, and you don’t want to lug around a duffel bag or suitcase all day. Finding a good bag for your things and good shoes for walking miles on end is a nessecity in the city! For me in the past they’ve been difficult to find, but it was easy with Botkier! Their entire line is fashionable, functionable, affordable, and versatile! PERFECT FOR NYFW!

It rained the entire time we were in the city, and honestly not one bag or shoe was ruined! The rain didn’t leak through my bag or shoes either, A SCORE! (Your accessories could never!) 

Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorite items from Botkier! (Including my bags & shoes pictured above!) Simply click on a picture to shop an item! 

Thanks for stopping by guys! It’s good to be back! xx

P.s. If you guys have any questions about the city, traveling, or anything AT ALL, leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you! xx

Your personal guide to southern Utah is HERE! <3 We’re letting you know the best places to stay, where to find the best grub, what to pack, what activities to do, and all the other goods you need to know!  ENJOY GUYS! xx

Stay: Our favorite places to stay are Entrada, Inn on the Cliff, Sports Village, or Las Palmas! Entrada is our favorite, but it’s also the priciest! We recommend Entrada for a special occasion or romantic getaway! For something family & budget friendly we recommend Sports Village or Las Palmas!  

Eat: There’s definitely more chains in this area than most, but a few of the locally owned spots are beyond drool worthy! Our favorites are Anasazi Grill, the restaurant at The Inn on the Cliff, Pizza + Pasta Factory, Poncho Leftys, Freddy’s, Croshaw Pies, & 25 Main!

Pack: Light, airy, & comfy clothing is the only way to go in Southern Utah! It’s so dang hot, you have to dress accordingly! I did some shopping before we left at Vici Collection and got everything for my trip from clothes to accessories from their store! Everything was under $50.00, and I used my discount code BRIT20 to get 20% off my entire purchase! Vici had some super cute graphic tees and light weight tee shirts, tons of beautiful airy dresses, swim cover ups, rompers, denim shorts, sandals, the whole she-bang! 10/10 would recommend checking Vici Collection out before you head of town/need a new outfit for something! <3 We also recommend packing sunscreen, a swimsuit, & some hiking clothes & shoes! 

Play: Southern Utah Is jam packed with activities, but you have to get outdoors! Our favorite things to do are hike at Zions, (angels landing is our favorite hike) visit Dixie rock, (get to the beautiful red rock with no hiking at all) golf, (our favorite courses are Coral Canyon, Entrada, and Sandhallow) visit Pine Valley, Snow Canyon state park, visit Towne Square Park, (splash pad & carousel for kids) swim/boat, (local pool or Sandhallow) Helicopter rides over Zion, Veyo pool, & play pickle ball or tennis! (There are courts everywhere!)

Need to know(s): If you stay at any of the resorts listed above, you’ll be about an hour and a half out of Las Vegas! If you want to shop, go straight to Vegas! Southern Utah has horrible shopping.  

Usually Southern Utah is fairly warm in the winter, but it’s been getting snow the last few years! If you want to hit the outdoor stuff, go before December!  

There’s a billion more things to do here (especially when it comes to hiking) but in this post we wanted to give you everything. Not just the hikes! However, if you’re wanting a full blown hiking experience, we recommend staying in Zion and looking up some of the hikes to see what’s best for you/your family! 

If you guys have any questions about vacationing in Southern Utah, shoot us an email! Or if you have something to add to this list that you love, leave a comment below! We’d love to add to this list! <3 

We hope you all enjoyed this post! Thanks for the love guys! xx
