We spent a few days last week in NYC.  I’ve tried to count how many times I’ve been to NYC and I believe it’s been about 10 times now.  During all of those trips, I had never made it over to the beautiful Macy’s store in Herald Square, but this trip I finally stopped in.  I never realized what I was missing until now!  The store is seriously breathtaking.  I was blown away by the gorgeous window displays and floral arrangements all over the store.  It was such an awesome experience.

I grew up shopping at Macy’s.  Our wedding registry was even at Macy’s!  It has always been one of my favorite retailers.  Because I’m such a frequent shopper, I’m always on the look out for new finds.  My favorite find recently has been CeCe Clothing.  I love their designs and choice of beautiful, bright colors.  Their pieces are great quality and selection is always fabulous.  This floral tie-neck dress couldn’t be cuter for Spring!  I paired this dress with hot pink pumps for the perfect pop of color.

We’re Moving VLOG

2016 was quite a year for our little family.  We experienced a few ups and our fair share of downs. Matt took on my favorite role yet, as Wyatt in Timeless, which had us moving from LA to Vancouver.  Watch our VLOG of our biggest move yet…

moving from Los Angeles to Vancouver VLOG featuring Matt Lanter and Angela Lanter

It’s so strange to think how different our lives look now compared to this time last year.  So much can change in 365 days.  Change is often uncomfortable, but it is necessary.

I noticed a lot of questions on YouTube about Soka during our trip up the West Coast.  Because our car was totally packed out and we spent very long hours on the road, we decided to leave Soka at home in LA with our friend, Crystal (Soka knows her as Aunt CeCe).  We were only in Vancouver for about 5 days before flying down to San Diego for Comic Con.  I drove up to LA after Comic Con and stayed home for the week, packing up the rest of what we needed while moving…  And doing a ton of purging.  After that, Miss Soka and I flew up to Vancouver to officially move into our new home.

Moving tends to always set the urge for a good purge (I should trademark that rhyme haha!)  If you missed this post all about purging your home, check it out now.  The beginning of a new year is also a great time to start fresh, hint hint!

I’m currently back home in LA for a couple of weeks and the purging is back in full force.  I’ve been working my way through our house, cabinet by cabinet.  Oh girl, let me tell you…  It feels GOOD to be in an organized house.  I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time focusing on anything in a messy, cluttered room.

My plan for this week is to majorly purge my closet.  I’m planning to try on every pair of jeans and pants I own.  I want to start off 2017 with a closet full of only the things I really love.  I’m considering opening my Poshmark store up again…  I’ll keep y’all posted if I do.

Now that the holidays are over, I’m excited to pick things back up here at HG.  I’m ready to get back into my Girl Talk Tuesday series and start creating fun new videos for 2017.  I’d love to hear from you about what you’d like to see more or less of in 2017 on HG.  I’d really appreciate if you could take a few moments to leave a comment below to let me know what would make you happiest to see from me this year.  Is it more lifestyle blog posts?  Maybe more outfit posts?  Or would you prefer more YouTube tutorials?  Whatever it is, please let me know below.  Scouts honor, I read each and every comment I receive!

I love my Gorgeous Girls so much.  I am so thankful for each and every one of you in my virtual family.  I’ll never get over the fact that you care enough to read what I write or watch what I post.  There’s nothing I’d love more than to have some real face-to-face girl talk over coffee with each one of you.

I’m so happy that HG has become a hub where I can connect with each of you.  I love that I can chat with each one of you beautiful babes about whatever topic is at hand (how fun was our Gilmore Girls post?)!  So here’s to a new year together.  A new year filled with happiness, love and laughter with my Gorgeous Girls.

Back in July, we made the long drive from Los Angeles to Vancouver.  Matt & I were both excited to take on the West Coast.  Honestly, there are so many more incredible places to see and explore in California than I ever even realized.

The first night of the trip we stayed in a very underwhelming hotel in Big Sur.  We really wanted to stay at Post Ranch Inn, because we heard so many incredible reviews, but it was totally booked.  The next morning, we spent about an hour exploring Carmel-by-the-Sea and totally fell in love with it’s charm (see photo here).  I definitely want to go back and stay at Doris Day’s hotel.

The second day of travel, we stopped for lunch in San Francisco then headed up to Wine Country for the night.  We used Hotel Tonight (coolest app, and no, this isn’t sponsored!) and found the most amazing little resort tucked away deep into Sonoma at an amazing price.

Kenwood Inn and Spa Sonoma, CA wine country stay angela lanter hello gorgeous

We spent the night at Kenwood Inn and Spa.  I wish we had more time there to enjoy the spa, but we were on the move (literally).  When we pulled up and saw the gorgeous Tuscan style inn covered with ivy, nestled in the middle of wineries as far as the eye could see, we felt like we were back in Italy.  It was absolutely a dream.

We walked into our room (upstairs level with pool view) and were blown away with how incredible it was.  The room was so spacious.  The gorgeous white bed was plush and inviting.  The sitting area in front of the fireplace made you want to settle in for days.  The balcony had an adorable table and chair set overlooking the pool.  The staff had a bottle of champagne waiting us for us on ice.  After our stay at Kenwood, I’m totally convinced we need heated floors in our bathroom…  Now, I just need to convince Matt!

Our room and bathroom had a very luxurious, spa feel.  When I spotted the Caudalie shower products, that was it.  Stick a fork in me, I was done.  A hotel after my own heart.  I love Caudalie.  It was the perfect touch to a great overnight experience.

We had both dinner and breakfast at the Inn.  Both meals were fabulous.  The grounds were meticulously groomed.  Everything about Kenwood was a dream.  If you are planning a trip to Wine Country anytime soon, be sure to check out this hotel.  It’s honestly in my top 5 hotel experiences, and believe me, I’m a hotel snob.

This cute little romper is what I wore to dinner with my hubs (photo here).  It’s made from the softest tee shirt material and is so comfy.  Honestly, I would wear this romper every day of my life, it’s that comfortable.  It’s rare to find a romper with a turtleneck, the turtleneck is exactly what caught my eye.  I love that there’s a cut out in the back for a touch of sexiness.  This romper is perfect for a date night.  It was a bit chilly at night in Wine Country (it’s Northern California, duh Ang) so I threw on a sweater.  FYI: My outfit is a bit wrinkled…  We were living out of a suitcase, lol.

I love wearing my hair in a top knot with high neck/turtleneck style tops.  I haven’t filmed a YouTube tutorial on this bun yet (leave a comment below if that’s something you’d like to see me post!)  But click here for a tutorial for the perfect messy bun in under 2 minutes.
