If you’ve been looking for something fun to do this Halloween without going somewhere overly scary, look no further then Nights of the Jack at King Gillette Ranch in Malibu.
I was invited to the preview night, and let me tell you it was an ABSOLUTE BLAST!!
One of the first things you notice when you walk into the event are all of the different photo opportunities. From a themed step and repeat, to hay bales and pumpkins, haunted carriages, and fun fall and halloween cutouts you’ll almost be overwhelmed at all of the different photo opps. BUT if you’re anything like me, you’ll still get a photo with all of them.
They also had some great food trucks on hand. Baby’s Badass Burgers was one of them and D’Amores Pizza. I opted for pizza and it was soo amazing! If you haven’t tried D’Amores pizza yet, what are you waiting for?! Taste just like you’re in Italy. I also had an apple cider from the Joe Coffee Bike Cart which in the chilly Malibu night made me feel like Fall was indeed here. And is there a better feeling then that? I think not.
It gets even better though people, there is a kid free zone (and there will be a lot of kids! So good for families, but definitely nice to have this little get away area.) that sells alcoholic beverages!! They have the cutest themed cocktails and an adorable wine trailer called The Bubble Tap Trailer that serves prosecco and sparkling wine on tap, they also had different seasonal bottled beers if you wish. Pretty sure that Lance Bass has a stake in it too. **Insert all the feels of early 2000s boy band feelings here**
Now for the pumpkin maze! Honestly, words do not do it justice(and neither did my photos or videos.). It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! You can tell all of the hard work that went into this exhibit (I heard it was two years in the making, and it shows!). Walking into the area you feel like you are in something that could be at Disneyland. And very much like It’s a Small World they had different themed areas with music that went with it in the different areas of the ranch. It was just impressive what they could with these pumpkins. Some of my favorite areas was the Lover’s Lane (They had a Prince Harry and Princess Meghan Markle Pumpkin!!), the Under the Sea area, the Rodeo Drive Walk, The Singing Pumpkins, and The Disney Princess Castle! It was all honestly just a dream.
So if you’re looking for something to do this Halloween season, I definitely recco going to Nights of the Jack at King Gillette Ranch in Malibu! It’s fun, not scary, and truly a different type of museum that you can take the whole family too or just go for a fun night out with your girlfriends!
Has anyone ever done something like this? Or are there some other unique fall activities in Los Angeles that should be on our radar? Tell me below, I’d love to hear!
Who says you can’t have it all? The only person who can put limits on you is you. We’ve entered the last quarter of the year and I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to slow down. I want to go into the end of this year strong, work wise and with my dating life. Who’s with me?? It’s been a long year, no one knows better then me. But we got this! Remember when things seem the toughest, that’s usually when you should keep going.
Read below for a few tips to keep you strong until the end of the year.
1. Make a Plan - For business of course because we all know that life happens when you’re planning it. But definitely make a plan for business. Where do you see yourself ending the year? Was there something you had been wanting to do in your side hustle and you didn’t get around to it? Now is the time to plan on making it happen. Have you just been skating by at work? Reignite your passion or go find something you’re passionate about. There’s nothing worse then dreams that just stand still, so do something to make it happen. I believe in you. Xo
2. Stay Healthy - The end of the year brings on the colder season for many areas in the world which means that the flu and cold will be going around. Make sure you stock up on your vitamins, eat healthy, exercise, and listen to your body. Sometimes it's telling you to SLOW DOWN. Tip: One of my favorite vitamins is Ritual (Monthly subscription vitamins for women with the only the things we need.). Use this code to get $5 off your first bottle.
3. Go On a Date - Whether you’re in a relationship or not. Go on a date to try to change your situation (if that's what you're looking for) or go on one to re-ignite the spark (or make it stronger) in your current situation. As you know, I’m single. I’m not looking to change that with just anyone, but going on a date with someone who could potentially be the one could be exciting. The possibility of something new always is. Or maybe just go on a date with yourself, sometimes you just need to get excited about you again! Sign up for my newsletter to get my 7-Day Guide to Loving Yourself Every Single (And Not So Single) Girl Should Have - if you're looking to date yourself again.
4. Do Something Exciting - Sometimes we get into routines, especially towards the end of the year. So why not switch things up a little? Go to a new restaurant or bar. Go on a fun weekend adventure. Plan a trip for the new year. Whatever it is make sure it’s something for you and not something you would normally do!
Is there something else you would add to this list? If so let me know below.

I have a new favorite summer accessory, and it’s this wood watch by Jord. Before I get into all the beautiful details about this wooden watch let me give you a little back story on why this is my new favorite summer accessory!
Summertime is the season for rosé drinking, rooftops, vacationing, having fun with your girlfriends, dancing, and disconnecting from society so that you can re-boot! Basically, it’s the perfect time for self-love. Sign up for my newsletter to receive “A 7-Day Guide to Loving Yourself Every Single (And Not So Single) Girl Should Have” and it’ll all make sense!
All of those summer activities can be absolutely AMAZING!! BUT if you’re constantly looking at your phone to check the time you then get distracted with what’s going in your digital world versus what’s happening right in front of you. Social Media and E-mail Notifications are something we can all be driven by, I know I’m guilty! Oftentimes we miss out on being present because we are bound to our phones and having to respond “RIGHT NOW”.
Which is why I have a new favorite summer accessory. Not only is my wooden watch beautiful, I’m wearing the Cassia Watch Series in Walnut and Vintage Rose (Soo Classy!), but it also allow me to keep track of the time without having to pick up my phone. Stylish and practical! Talk about a win win.
Let’s get back to the watch color though, isn’t the walnut wood absolutely gorgeous against the rose colored watch face? I LOVED that this women’s watch has hints of my favorite colors pink and rose gold without being over the top. This is a piece that I can and will wear everywhere this summer! Hence my new favorite summer accessory. I was also able to engrave my watch with The Single Girl Life’s mission statement words - Fearless, Empowered, Stronger (You can read more about why I chose those words here). So now I can walk around with a daily powerful reminder right on my wrist.
There are just so many different elements that will make this wooden watch the talk of all your summer parties. So, check out other Jord women’s watches and wood/color pairings here.
Then make sure you enter the giveaway here so that you can win a $100 credit towards purchasing your VERY OWN unique wood women’s watch by Jord.
Fearless, Empowered, Stronger
What do those words mean to you?
As a woman living in today’s world these words mean EVERYTHING to me. They are the attitude of everything I want my life to embody. More then just words, they are a lifestyle of what today’s every girl should be. We live in a time much different from our mother’s and one where we need to make noise and a lot of it to be heard. We will not be silenced as women. My hope dear sister and friend is that you will hold these words close to your heart and when you feel the strength of these words pass this message along to another woman who may need to hear them.
As women we can do ANYTHING we set our minds to! Don’t be afraid to make bold moves. The only thing you can fail at in life is not trying at all.
“Be the CEO Your Parents Always Wanted You to Marry” is one of my new favorite quotes. You don’t need anyone to empower you but you! You got this girl, decide what you want and go for it!
You are always stronger then yesterday! Life’s little experiences shape us to be the women we are. Instead of feeling down about life take the lessons you learned from the day before and become stronger because of it!
