I’ve always loved planning. Whether it’s a Daddy Daughter Day in LA, a romantic date night out, a family vacation or a girls getaway weekend, I’m obsessed with planning each and every stop! From the moment we arrive till the moment we leave, I’ve got coffee, brunch, dinner, drinks, activities and travel all dialed in! Happy hour? Check! Pool Party? Check! Dinner with an outdoor patio and great ambiance? Double check! It might come off a little Monica from Friends but trust me, I do my research! Besides…. “I wish we would have winged it” -said no one ever.

DESH X BUFFALO EXCHANGE

Last week I went shopping at Buffalo Exchange and got a ton of cute outfits and accessories, all at affordable prices! Buffalo Exchange now has dozens of locations all over but for those who don’t know, they are a resale store that buys, sells and trades clothing. It’s a great way to give your past fashion favs a second chance at life while scoring yourself some store credit or cash! I’ve been shopping at Buffalo Exchange for years and it never disappoints! As usual I came home with way more stuff than my closet can hold right now but like I always say… don’t tell Chris. 😉  Kidding… but the point here is Buffalo Exchange is a great shopping experience because you can find trendy and fashionable items, even designer in great condition, at a fraction of the price at high-end retailers. Find your nearest location here.
