Happy MONDAY! I love my family and hosting the Christmas holidays, but dang, I am so glad to be past last week. There is something about a mid-week holiday that makes things drag on. Anyone else feel this way? It’s been a while since I have done a post where we just get caught up. Today I am sharing a lot of recent Instagram looks, upcoming travel plans for 2020 and just life lately. Oh, and more SALES!
Can you believe that we are up to 12 Christmas stockings for our family? It was such a fun holiday, but it’s getting increasingly harder to get everyone here on the same day and time. Hence, the reason it all dragged out a bit last week. I still love these stockings and the store will personalize them for you. They are currently 50% OFF so stock up!
Travel: I have three trips already booked for 2020 and two are in warm weather locations. I’m currently ordering clothes for the first one and can’t wait to share my packing list with you. Let’s just say, it’s a destination where you put your toes in the sand!
Instagram: My Instagram and LikeToKNow.it app are full of shopable pictures and links that don’t necessarily make it to this blog site. Maybe it’s a spur of the moment shot with my iPhone or an outfit that doesn’t warrant a full blog post. Nevertheless, I am rounding up a few looks below that you might like. I never know how many places you follow me, so I don’t want you to miss out in case you only follow the blog. If you want immediate gratification, be sure to follow me on Instagram and watch my Instagram Stories.
Life Lately: I don’t know about you, but I am that person who dislikes the time period between Christmas and New Year’s. There’s just too much free time with no plans. I guess I crave structure. I’ve never been so ready to get back to my task list and daily routine! How about you?
Wednesday’s blog post will be my New Year’s post with lots of bloopers and outtakes. This has kind of become a tradition here on the blog. Wait until you see what I’m sharing. Get ready for a good laugh! 🙂
What’s new with you? xoxo- Tanya
P.S. If you are ever looking for a good deal, be sure to follow me on POSHMARK (tanyafosterblog). I list brand new items or things that have only been worn one time for a shoot on my feed.
This look has been on repeat! The pop of color comes from the fabulous Gucci mules. I think they are sold out everywhere so I am linking a similar pair. Again, it’s an investment shoe and I wear them all the time!
My hair continues to grow and my nails are the best they have ever been due to taking Nutrafol daily. YES, it’s that good! Take 4 pills daily and be consistent for best results.
MacKenzie-Childs is having an After Christmas SALE! Go to their site to see what you might snag.
The Soma SALE is still going strong with up to 70% OFF. This fabulous animal print wrap is part of the sale. GET IT!
These are some of my most cherished gifts that I have received from our kids. It’s such a great service. You send in a digital picture of your pet and they make this pet pop art on canvas. It’s shipped directly to you.
This gray long cardigan comes in 4 colors and is on SALE for 40% OFF! I’m wearing size small. Get all 4 colors! Shoes are sold out, but I have linked a similar option.
In case I haven’t shared this before, my assistant Laure is a professional ballerina with Ballet Dallas. Pete and I went to her holiday performance, Inspired Voices, and we were simply blown away by her talent!
Speaking of assistants, Laura and I got to meet up with my Virtual Assistant Kaitlyn last week. Can you believe that before last week, I had never met her? I guess that’s the beauty of this digital industry – you can work from anywhere. I love working with these two amazing young women!
I love this black top because its casual, yet stylish. Dress it up or dress it down, either way – it works. The top comes in numerous colors and fits true to size. By the way, my Gucci sneakers are super comfortable and I’ve never regretted making this investment purchase.
In case you are wondering, Ruby Lou is living her best life! Can you believe she is one year old? Time flies! I’ve never had a cat with so much personality!
Is there anything better than a super soft, plush robe? Don’t forget about the Soma Semi-Annual SALE going on right now! Get up to 70% OFF!
Such fabulous travel coming up! In Carmel you must visit La Bicyclette. It is the most delightful French bistro – fabulous food and atmosphere. If you all go over to Monterrey, I cannot recommend the aquarium enough. It is fantastic!
In Alaska, if you are doing an excursion in Juneau I highly recommend doing the Taku Mountain Glacier lodge excursion. It is stunning- you’ll fly over 5 glacial lakes, land on a glacial lake, eat incredible salmon that was swimming that morning, and likely see a bear! Have so much fun!
Carmel we always stay at Clint Eastwood’s hotel Mission Ranch on Delores street. Their restaurant is very cool look up on their website. The bar is quaint and yes Clint shows up there. The restaurant looks over the bay and there’s sheep grazing in the meadow. Nothing else like this in Carmel. Hubby Pete will really enjoy this.
We’ve spent New Year’s Eve at the Ranch the piano bar is lively with singers some very famous showing up to do impromptu performances and Clint is there.
Also eat a burger at the 18th hole restaurant at Pebble Beach clubhouse scenery is gorgeous and you’re going right before the US Open.
You will love Alaska. We were there last summer. It does get cool so layering is perfect. Make sure you have a couple of jackets and sweaters. I packed lightweight clothes and was COLD on several days. Let me know if you needs more info. You will have a fabulous trip!
That’s a lot of travel! When in Carmel, tea at the Tuck Box is a real great! xo
Have a great time on all your trips. We will await beautiful pictures!! We are huge fans of Carmel and especially love eating at Casanova in the downtown area. For a special occasion, we really enjoy L’Auberge. It is a long courses dinner, definitely an event, but it is a lot of fun. Reservations are a must for both.
