This Beautiful Day x Bremenn Clinical

A sponsored post.

There are days when my regular drugstore products just don’t cut it. I noticed that as the seasons change, my skin can become more demanding – especially during the winter.

I met the fine folks at Bremenn Clinical in their hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah when I attended my first Alt Summit in January. It was perfect timing because the altitude change coupled with my recent long-haul flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles was beginning to wear on my skin. My face would go through an intense period of dryness, followed by a cycle of excessive oil production and then a breakout. I really began to feel self-conscious of how my skin looked.

A face regimen overhaul was in order.

First up, I got rid of all my face wipes that were loaded with alcohol. I am really lazy about taking my make-up off at night that I usually give it a quick wipe and I crash into bed. I switched to a more gentle Micellar water to cleanse my skin and it made a big difference. (more…)

Travel Guide: Park City, Utah

The Town Lift takes you from Main Street right on to the ski hill

I am married to a man who loves to snowboard.

After spending years as a snow bunny on the sidelines, I finally took up skiing last year and fell in love with the sport. So when a blogging conference came up in Salt Lake City last month, Paul did not hesitate to join once he discovered that he could go snowboarding every day while I was at my conference. Once I wrapped up my work, I took a couple days off and made it into a vacation and off we went to neighbouring Park City for a winter ski and snowboard getaway!

Getting There – Shuttles from Salt Lake City run around $35 each way per person. We opted to rent an SUV from the airport for around $70/day so we could come and go on our own schedule. Since we were not staying at the base of the ski hill and wanted to explore on our own – this was a good option. The drive from Salt Lake City Airport to Park City takes about 45 minutes and you’ll be hitting the slopes in no time. I flew direct from Los Angeles for about $200 round-trip and takes about 90 minutes.

Cooking with Kelsey Nixon!

Kelsey-Nixon-Alt-Summit

I am officially back from ALT Summit! After spending a week or so in Salt Lake City for my first ALT blogging conference and visiting Park City to work on my skiing skills – I am wiped. My brain is actually about to explode from all the new things I’ve learned…which I will share with you all tomorrow!

But first things first. I had amazing time cooking with Kelsey Nixon from the Food Network as part of a series of sponsor dinners held on the Wednesday night before ALT actually kicked off. I also love that we are sort of the same height (see above). The night started off with me rushing to the venue straight from SLC airport after a two-hour mechanical delay at LAX – blergh.

The 20 or so bloggers that signed up for the cooking class + dinner with Kelsey all squealed with delight when we saw the mini rainbow sprinkle cakes spread throughout the kitchen at Orson Gygi. They did double-duty as decor AND dessert – so smart! (more…)

North America’s Longest Alpine Slide!

Park-City-Alpine-Coaster

I was Salt Lake City this past weekend to attend Altitude Summit 2014 – or Alt Summit, a conference for bloggers. More on that coming in another post! Once the hoopla ended on Saturday morning, Paul and I headed out to Park City, Utah for – get this….a ride on North America’s LONGEST Alpine Slide!

It’s sort of like a roller coaster built into the mountain with hairpin turns and a hand brake to slow you down. How was it? See the helmet cam that we shot with our GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition for our ride down the mountain!
