New Blog!

Hi ladies!

I've decided to start a NEW BLOG over at Pretty Wise!  I started Kisses Aren't Contracts right after college, when I was single & spending a lot more time out on the town & not so much time renovating a home & cooking for the hubby ;).  That's right, I'm now a newlywed & a brand new home owner!

Kisses Aren't Contracts just didn't seem to be the right name for my blog, so being a believer of fresh starts, I've decided to do just that.

I hope you ladies follow me over at the new blog!  I'll be talking fashion, beauty, fitness, and of course home renos & sharing a little bit about married life.

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday ladies!!  Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!  My fiance & I went down to San Diego for the weekend with family & had an amazing & relaxing weekend :)


We visited Alta Loma Seafood for lunch & took in the amazing view of the harbor.

 We stayed at Humphrey's Half Moon Inn on Shelter Island & I cannot tell you how much I love this hotel!  The ground are beautiful & we felt so peaceful soaking in the views of the bay :)

The rooms were really nice & spacious.  

The entrance of the hotel makes you feel like you're a million miles away from Southern California! 

We shared a bottle of wine on this deck with my parents before dinner & didn't want to leave!  So beautiful! 

As seen in my previous OOTD post we went to Donovan's for dinner.  Yummy!

Hope you ladies had a wonderful weekend!  We had dinner last night with my fiance's parents & my family at a restaurant called Donovan's located in La Jolla, Ca... I splurged & had lobster & creme brulee!  SOOO yummy!  I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a fancy place to impress or celebrate a special occasion!  The service is truly 5 star.

I wore 7 For All Mankind wide leg denim, striped top form H&M, J Crew bubble necklace, Marc Jacobs bag & nude pumps from Target!!

Happy Friday lovelies!!  
Oh am I SO glad the weekend is here!  Work has been extra crazy this week & after working the past 2 nights until 11pm (13 hour days!!), I'm so ready for a day to re-group!  

Today I'm running errands, cleaning, shopping & going to my favorite yoga class.  
After a long week, yoga totally makes me feel so much better & balanced.  

OOTD & detalis ;)

Wearing some trouser shorts form F21 (similar), tank from American Apparel 
& jacket from UO (see post below) & studded flats are DV (similar).

Some outfits from last week...  
The weather has been all over the place in So Cal, so I've been wearing light sweaters or layering.
F21 cuffed trousers (similar here), tank from local boutique, Aldo loafers (similar here), Madewell belt, Marc Jacobs bag.

 Aqua sweater from Bloomingdales (love love love this sweater!!), LuluLemon leggings, Frye boots, f21 necklace.

On another note, the fiance & I took our engagement photos on Friday & I can't wait to see them & share them with you guys!  We felt kind silly trying to "act natural" in front of the camera, so we will see how they turn out!  Haha hopefully they aren't as awkward as I felt taking them!  ;)
