[ Our flight into Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We arrived! ]
Hello, hello, hello—HAPPY SUNDAY!
How’s your day been?
Today was my first Sunday back from DR & it felt soooo good! I was so relaxed, so energized, & so not hungover, which was a really nice change from vacationing in DR. We stayed at a resort with swim-up bars in all the pools, soooo… As you can imagine, it was very easy to get drinks.
AND! … SUPER easy to get to the beach, which I loved. We had a view of the ocean every day at lunch ( it was so incredible ), and we could run back and forth from the pool to the ocean in less than a minute. It was AMAZING.
[ My FAVORITE⇢ the ocean—it was so gorgeous, so blue ( ombre blue! ) & super warm. ]
I’m putting together a “What to Pack for Punta Cana” post this week, so stay tuned for that.
&, side note—some of my friends asked me to share some makeup & skincare posts, so stay tuned for more of those in the next few weeks.
I really, really want to know what YOU ( yes, you! ) what to hear about, so please let me know… Comment below, email me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or let me know on social. I want to hear from you. : )
So… Why was today so relaxing?
It’s all about how I started the day.
I got coffee with a few of my girl friends ( LOVEEE ) this morning, & it was SO nice to catch up with them, get a little caffeine buzz & walk Minty.
I feel like a little get-together with the girls is a MUST, right?! Like water… I need it to survive.
After a 3 hour ( LOL, that’s how I like ’em ) coffee date, I sat myself at the computer where I’ve been working for the past 5-6 hours ( not complaining, I love it—& I took breaks here & there. )
I poured myself a big glass of Kombucha—GT’s Guava Goddess—in a champagne flute, opened a bottle of Pellegrino ( LOL, getting wild ; ) ), put on some Cuban music, and lit a citrus candle.
I switched over to JOYFETTI Playlist — Carefree on Spotify a few hours ago to mix it up.
[ My go-to salad lately ⇢ organic arugula, goat cheese, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, + salt & pepper. So simple & so delicious. ]
The Guava Goddess in the champagne flute looks SO much like a Bellini, right!? I’m kind of into it…
I got a bottle of sauvignon blanc with notes of grapefruit earlier today, & it’s still chilling in the fridge. I just sipped on my Kombucha all day and pretended it was a Bellini. ; ) HAHA. Next time ⇢ definitely GT’s Guava Goddess + champ. YUM!
I had the BEST sauvignon blanc with notes of grapefruit last night, with dinner, so naturally, I picked up a similar bottle so I could have a liiittttle bit more. ; ) I don’t know the name of yesterday’s wine, but I’ll get it for you guys this week so you can try it out if you’d like. It was a-mazingggg.
[ Minty found some shade & peace ( HA ) in a little tunnel at the dog park yesterday. Follow her on Instagram for more pics & vids. ]
This week was FULL of doggy play dates and visits to the dog park, which I LOVED! Minty‘s been warming up to dog parks, slowly but surely. She’s making progress, little by little.
I snapped all the fun from yesterday’s dog park, but since we went in the afternoon it’s not in my story anymore, I’m sorry! Follow us on SNAPCHAT so you don’t miss any of the fun. Username ⇢ JOYFETTI
