Week 3 of #CurrentlyObsessing! Who doesn't LOVE Jonathan Adler's, animal coasters?! So cute. So chic. If you are anything like me, number two on the list, is a must have. I'm not one for popping pills, so when it comes to getting my Vitamins, those Gummy Vites save me! Three on the list, are my all time favourite Valentino shoes! No, I cannot afford them, but yes, I can still dream of having them. Pomegranate scented candles. I love to light a candle after I take a shower. It's very soothing, and perfect to get you in sleep mode. Try the Waterford candles. This grey jumpsuit from Zara is definitely something my closet needs. Okay, it might not need it, but it definitely wants it! Lastly, the most perfect nude lipstick is here ladies! Kate Spade has a beautiful collection of nude lipsticks, and the one I got here is called Sweet Blush.

Week two of #CurrentlyObsessing! Lets take a look at what I'm loving this week. Absolutely in love with Jonathan Adler's metal side table. So chic and modern! It seems like it would go with any kind of room. Kate Spade's 'Hello Sunshine' phone case. I'm not an iPhone user, however do love that! I'm such a fan of mineral make up, so this blush by Becca, is just perfect! There are many different shades of blush for any type of skin tone. Of course loving the MK watches....pretty much love them all! Yes, this week I've included the Zara trench coat. Because, Fall is pretty much here, and I'll soon be wearing all my trenches. Lastly, who doesn't love this MK bootie?

If you are a regular follower of my blog, you already know that I am loving printed pants this summer! Everybody has a 'go-to' piece, and mine has definitely been these printed pants we are seeing everywhere. They are super comfy, and can even feel like pjs. However, you can really dress them up with some funky jewellery, a pair of heels, and a nice top, as you can see I did in these photos.
Summer is all about colour and prints, so why not incorporate that into your wardrobe? Mix and match things, think outside the box, and try something new! Even mix and match print on print. It may not work, but hey, at least you tried.

Once a week, I would like to share my current obsessions with you all. I've always had a keen eye for fashion & beauty, and I think it's time I share them with everyone. I'm always on the hunt for amazing staple pieces to add to my closet, home, and cosmetics bag, so if there is ever anything that catches your eye, I would love for you to share them with me on twitter.

They have a massive selection of wines and champagnes.
I do recommend stopping for lunch as their menu is carefully selected and fits perfectly with most of their wines.
Before they serve you the wine, they provide you with a sheet of the wines you've selected. The sheet gives you some good information on the chosen wines and tells you exactly what foods you should be pairing with the wines.
They place each wine tasting over the description on the sheet so you know exactly what wine you are drinking.
Of course we ordered a platter of cheese and breads. It was served with a light maple honey dressing.
Seafood was a must for some at our table. This dish in particular was called Seafood Cioppino. It had shrimps, scallops, mussels, crab, lobster, and fresh fish simmered in a spicy tomato and garlic broth.
More seafood for the seafood lovers.
This was a delicious breaded chicken breast served with baked potato and veggies in a Tarragon cream sauce---HEAVENLY.
We kept ordering different types of wines. They have the most unusual wines at Thornton Winery. I urge you to try at least 3 different sets of wines. Most sets come with five different wines/champagnes.
The Temecula Valley is such a beautiful sight. You are surrounded by the greenery of the vineyards, and of course in the distance, the breath-taking mountains of California.
My lovely man and I posing for a photo by the scenic vineyards in the distance.
More stunning views of the vineyards.
That concludes my blog on the Thornton Winery. Hope you enjoyed that and do visit the winery as it is truly a lovely experience for those who love wine and even those who are not so much into wine.

When strolling around in sunny California, you need something light, comfy, and fabulous, of course! Which is why this outfit was a must! It incorporates all of the above.
I took these shots right in front of Diane Von Furstenberg's store on Melrose Ave.
Stay tuned for more on my LA trip!
