Being that "glamping" has become the preferred vacation during these "unusual times", a box of individual wines is perfect for the occasion. While your mate cracks open a beer by the fire, you can pop a bottle of red, rosé or brut.
Usual Wines come in individual bottles of 6.3 oz, which is equivalent to 1/4 bottle of wine. It's a large glass of wine in a chic little bottle. Enjoy by the glass or by the bottle.
I realize this modern way of enjoying wine may be beneath some of you wine snobs, but for the free-spirit wine lovers, it's an innovative method and definitely a conversation starter. AND, just because I'm not a wine connoisseur, doesn't mean I don't appreciate flavor. These wines are delicious.
I prefer the mini version of everything, so it's no surprise that I love Usual Wines. The red, rosé, brut and rosé brut are equally delicious. The brut is my favorite. It has notes of bergamot, elderflower and lemon AND the bubbles are super strong - I love bubbles.
The red tastes like chocolate and cherry. I'm not usually a fan of red wine, but I like this one. I realize this goes against the usual, but I refrigerate the red - Cold red wine tastes better to me.
The rosé tastes like rhubarb, strawberry and roses. It's refreshing and perfect for summer. I haven't tried the rosé brut, but I imagine it tastes similar, with those super strong Usual Wine bubbles.
It's all about the bubbles for me and I'm not a brut connoisseur, but I will say the bubble factor will not disappoint you (like those faux-fizzy wines masquerading as champagne and prosecco).
Usual Wines have no additives, making them slightly healthier than the average wine and easier to digest. The sustainable production method is not only giving us a "cleaner" wine, but is also good for the environment. LOVE that!
Back to the chic individually sized bottles. This is genius. Not that any of us are having get togethers in 2020, but when we finally get back to socializing, having individual bottles is chic. You can also serve the wine with a straw, but be careful with the brut, cause the bubbles might overflow (it's happened to me more than once).
Usual Wines come in boxes of 6 small bottles. You can purchase 6, 12, 18 or 24 packs of each or mix and match. The mix-it-up method is a nice feature. There is also a membership program that's easy to navigate, changeable and can be cancelled after two shipments. Of course, I have a membership!

During these unusual times, camping is the safest, social distanting vacation. My go-to glamping outpost is Getaway House DC in Shenandoah, VA. I camped here a few times last year, but had to stop traveling due to 2020 restrictions (and paranoia). A few months ago, I decided to get out of the city and go back to getaway-glamping. I'm obsessed all over again!
The camping outpost in Shenandoah is a 20 acre plot of land with small cabins scattered about. The cabin (Getaway House) is a thoughtfully designed, cozy space, with all the essentials for a relaxing weekend in the woods.
The small area surrounding the cabin is perfect. There's a picnic table, Muskoka chairs and a firepit with a grill grate. There's a container containing wood and a few startup logs located by the firepit and basic provisions inside the cabin for purchase.
I've camped at Getaway House in Shenandoah seven times and have stayed in cabins located all over the map. I've stayed in Philip, Hank, Juanita, Carroll, Thelma and Lionel. The Thelma is my absolute favorite. This is the first time I've stayed in this style of cabin and although we only require one bed, now I prefer the double bed cabin.
It feels like this cabin is larger than the one bed style and it's nice to have a space to keep your belongings out of the way - We put our stuff on the top bunk. If you've stayed at a Getaway House, you know space is limited and these tiny cabins can get crowded.
When you book your cabin (one or two beds), you can request a cabin style or a specific cabin. Although Getaway House doesn't promise you'll get a particular cabin, they will make a note in your booking and do their best to accommodate you.
The location of the Thelma cabin is perfect. It's on the outer edge of the outpost and has a larger area around the cabin. I highly recommend you take a look at the Getaway House map and try to snag a cabin in this area of the outpost.
While you should put your phone, tablet and computer away, I can't help myself. Here I am trying desperately to get service. The reception isn't great, so it does kinda force you to enjoy camping sans electronics.
I highly recommend packing board games. My favorites are Bears vs Babies, Exploding Kittens, Throw Throw Burrito and Oh Fruck!
Every camping trip is a little different. Sometimes we explore the outpost, other times we play games all day and I always change up the food and beverage menu. This trip was focused on relaxing, sitting by the fire and taking naps.
Of course, I had to snap a few camping inspired pics of the cabin, Teddy and I before messing it up. Here I'm wearing a Moschino Couture! Care Label-Print t-shirt and Pook socks. Pook is one of my favorite brands to shop camping-inspired clothing and accessories. My tote is the Gucci Florentia Lorto Di Giove tote.
My husband, Teddy and I camp at Getaway House at least once a month. It's good to get a change of scenery once and a while, do something different, put down your electronics (discipline required) and simply getaway from everyday life.

Sephora Collection Facial Cooling Globes are a must have. Feeling a little puffy after a night of wine or had too much salt lately - You need these facial cooling globes to reduce puffiness and refresh your complexion.
For best results, keep the cooling facial globes in the fridge, so they're nice and cold. The cooling sensation from the globes reduces the appearance of puffiness AND feels amazing. DO NOT put them in the freezer.
The globes are small and easy to roll around the contours of your face and neck. You can use these globes with a light eye cream, facial serum and neck cream.
The small globes come in a compact box that fits in your tote for on-the-go facials. No fridge, no problem - Just place the globes in super cold water for 10 minutes. As you glide the globes around your face they will become less cool and that's when you know you've done enough.
I like to start with my under eyes and glide the globes upwards. Then my face (always upwards) and for my forehead, I start between my eyebrows and glide the globes up and out in an arch shape motion. I also place the globes on the inner eye lids for about five seconds and then glide outwards to reduce my puffy eyelids.
These little cooling facial globes have landed a permanent spot in my beauty routine. Sephora Collection facial cooling globes retail for $25. I'm gonna buy these globes for all the ladies in my life..

The DIORAMOUR Lady Dior handbag dons Dior handwritten graffiti-esque print and a heart outline. The word “love”, printed in many languages all over the bag masks me feel a sense of unity and love. Best birthday gift ever!

I've been following the face mask evolution closely. At first, getting any kind of face mask was impossible, but slowly companies began to produce effective, fashionable face masks. Months later there are too many to choose from and while this newly adopted accessory is a must, people are treating it like a fashion trend.
I ordered a plain white material mask with the b.a.gorgie logo in black and a black mask with the logo in white from Etsy. It took almost two months to arrive, but was worth it. Personalizing masks is a great way to promote your brand.
GRLFRND has a nice selection of fashionable cloth masks. I purchased this HOMEGIRL face mask and Veni Vidi Vici mask by GRLFRND from Revolve. The fit is nice - I have a small face, so finding masks that are snug is a struggle.
I'm a basic mask wearing kinda girl and prefer the plain white KN95 medical grade mask. This is the most comfortable mask I've tried and the easiest to breathe in. You can purchase the KN95 from Amazon.
Outfit details - Dior aviator sunglasses, Mate The Label mint classic crew tee and lounge short, Dior J'adior cotton oblique bracelet set, Fendi fur slides. No, I did not mismatch the slides, they are a pair!
I also like the evolvetogether high bacterial filtration efficiency masks. There is small print along one side that says evolvetogether and the geographic coordinates of NYC, Milan and Amazonia. These basic, 3 ply masks come in white, black and sage green. For every green mask purchased, evolvetogether will donate a mask and proceeds to One Tree Planted. I like that!
Whatever your face mask style - WEAR A MASK! Make sure you cover your mouth AND nose. These are unusual times, but let's make the best of it and treat face masks like any other accessory. We'll look back and say - What was the fashion trend in 2020 - face masks!

I haven't posted a Must-Haves list in months. Why bother purchasing clothes and accessories if you're stuck at home?! Seems like other countries are getting back to normal, travel has resumed and my favorite bloggers are posting new fashion. I'm a little jealous and eager to purchase something extravagant.
I am obsessed with these Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers (available at LV). I've seen them on Instagram and they photograph nicely. The curvy shape and oversized, bouncy sole give these unique sneakers a modern, feminine vibe. I'd prefer all white, but would be happy with the patent monogram canvas style pictured here.
I've been lusting over Dior bags for months. I'm trying to decide which style I would purchase for Fall - It's a late 40th birthday gift from the husbano. I had my heart set on the white, camouflage saddle bag, but as new styles drop, I'm leaning towards a small book tote.
This blue, multicolor Dior Around the World book tote (available at Dior) is perfect for Fall. I don't have a blue handbag, so this would be a nice addition to my mostly pink collection.
I'm not a fan of Tory Burch - It just doesn't occur to me to shop the label. BUT, I just have-to-have this Tory Burch printed shirt dress (available at MyTheresa). The green batik-inspired print is perfect for Fall. A must-have!
I would pair the Tory Burch shirt dress with these Stella McCartney Elyse Derby platforms (available at MyTheresa). This signature shoe is made of faux leather, has a multi-layer platform and dons the brand name along the midsole. I love these shades of beige - This seasons hue and my go-to colors.
I know it seems a bit early to be shopping for cold weather, but when I saw this Jacquemus puffer jacket on the runway - I had-to-have it. I'm just waiting for it to become available for purchase. I LOVE the hue and the puffer style is perfect for casual wear.
Jacquemus is one of my favorite designer brands. I want everything Jacquemus. This La Maille Cavou wool-blend sweater (available at MyTheresa) would pair nicely with high-waisted pants. The chunky sweater has an in-side out construction and cropped silhouette. LOVE!
