Hi, guys!

I hope you all had an amazing 

Valentine's Day!
This was my favorite Valentine's Day look that I came up with this year. This pink and red ombre Forever 21 dress was made for Valentine's Day!
You can find it here: Forever 21 Ombre Button Front Maxi Dress

I'm so mad that I can't remember where I got this belle sleeve cardigan! I got it last winter and I bought it online, but I don't remember what store it was from.
Here are few similar ones that I found:
Black Swan Jessica Braided Chenille Cardigan // China Fireside Cable Knit Cardigan
// Mango Land Cardigan

These gray ModCloth tights are such a staple in wardrobe!
You can find them here: Layer It On Tights

&
 Last but certainly not least are these Bearpaw Topaz style lace-up booties in the color Russet!
You guys, these are SO gorgeous! The color, the style, literally everything about them. I feel so chic when I wear these, even if the rest of my look is super casual. I also have the Topaz style booties in the color Black Print and I absolutely love those as well! I have a giveaway coming to Instagram soon so stay tuned. :)
I have a couple similar pairs listed below as well!

What did you do in celebration of love?!
& What did you wear?

I hope you felt so loved today, because you are!

Love,

Hi, guys!

I hope you've been staying warm where you are! It's been an insanely cold week here in Ohio. The polar vortex is no joke for the midwest! We've also been sick around here. I was sick last week with a stomach bug and Fred was sick with a head cold. Now this week I've caught the lovely head cold!

Ugh, I'm ready for some sunshine & flowers!

I hope you like this ootd! Recently, I've been loving the black, camel, and blush combination! I wear blush so much, it's practically a neutral to me!

Ohio | Trying Nada for the first time - TACOS, MARGS, & CHURROS, Oh my! (Columbus, OH)

*I've received product from Nada. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the companies that support BG by Christina!
 Hi, friends!

A couple of months ago Fred & I tried Nada for the first time. I posted about it on Instagram and showed a lot of pictures on my IG stories, but we got so many photos that I wanted to create a post for you guys! We had such a fun date night there and the food was absolutely incredible. If you're a Columbus local, or you're visiting, I highly recommend Nada!

 Their staff was so catering to us. They made us feel at home right away. They even went above and beyond to help Fred and I capture the shots that we wanted! Our server, Zane was awesome and he made sure everything was prepared exactly how we liked it. He gave us great food and drink selections, based off of our unique preferences.

Keep scrollin' to see all of the food we ordered! We tried a lot of plates!
Here is what we ordered:

Drinks
* Ginger Soda
* Sangria Roja


Appetizers
* Chips & Salsa
* Guacamole
* Custom Queso

Tacos
* Chicken Al Carbon
* Baja Fish

Desserts
* Butterscotch Flan
* Caramelized Vanilla Bean Cheesecake
* Churros 
Drinks: I've always wanted to try a ginger soda, so that's what I ordered! Fred loved the Sangria Roja, which was red wine + brandy + cinnamon + cranberry + orange soda. 


Appetizers: We loved the chips and salsa and there were 3 salsa flavors to choose from 
(all mouthwateringly good):

 - fire-roasted tomato ancho salsa
- jalapeño salsa verde
- habanero "kreeper" salsa

The guacamole was so good, made with avocado + lime + tomatillo + crudité. 
& If you get ONE thing while you're there and that's it, get the CUSTOM QUESO. I repeat get the CUSTOM QUESO! It was the best queso I've ever had, hands down and I loveee me some queso. 
You can add in any of these items:

- kreeper salsa
- avocado
- rajas [peppers & onions]
- braised pork
- crispy pork belly
- grilled chicken
- tinga [braised chorizo chicken]

We choose avocado and grilled chicken.

Tacos: I loved the Chicken Al Carbon tacos! I prefer chicken to beef in my tacos. The Chicken Al Carbon had black bean purée + pico de gallo + guacamole + chihuahua cheese. Fred got the Baja Fish tacos which had beer-battered hake + guacamole + lime cabbage + pico de gallo.


Desserts: In my opinion, the desserts were the absolute best part (no surprise here :p).
The butterscotch flan is perfection and it had a toasted coconut cream in it that I just loved.  The caramelized vanilla bean cheesecake and the churros were delicious too! You need to try all three!
Thank you so much Nada for having us! :)

... Have you been to Nada yet?!

Love,

Christina xx
