Holidays in The Vineyard

FashionDalia CejaComment

Happy Holidays! 'Tis the season for sweet Christmas tunes, twinkle lights, and numerous holiday soirées. Are you ready to celebrate? There’s something about this time of year that always makes me want to get a little bit more dressed up than usual, whether that’s with a touch of sequins and sparkle, faux fur or amazing long fitted dresses that bring all of the holiday elements together.

I've combined my top three favorite outfits that you can easily dress up or down that make me feel effortlessly feminine with a touch of glam. In a sea of over the top sequins and sexy black dresses, these combinations are the perfect happy medium.

Look 1). Can we talk about slits for a second? I absolutely love a dress that gives the drama of a high neckline, low back and a slit. I was immediately attracted to the deep shade of purple and soft material. I decided to add these metallic rose gold wedge sandals to give the outfit some sparkle and pop. We recently took our engagement pictures and this dress might have made a cameo - stay tuned!

Look 2). This holiday season I've gravitated to all things velvet, including this gorgeous strappy dress. Matched with this faux fur coat is the perfect compliment if you are going to be attending an outdoor event or strolling in the chilly December evenings.

Look 3). This off the shoulder gown with a beautifully fitted ruffle bodice and memorable high front slit is light weight and very feminine. I love the rich wine color that screams of the holidays. Dress it up even more and exchange the wedge sandals with some black pumps, bold lipstick and a romantic side braid. This is the perfect pick for a winter formal event.

What is the importance of a great coffee table book? Part home decor, part artifact that says a little something about your taste, a coffee table book has become an integral part of interior design in the past few years. That said, we're excited to be part of the new coffee table book, Napa Valley Entertaining. In Napa Valley, eating, drinking and entertaining with friends and familia is a feast for all senses and seasons. This book is an insider's guide to entertaining with a bit of wine country flair by highlighting a variety of dishes, décor and diversity that make Napa such a special place to call my hometown.  

Go behind the scenes and experience a meal with dozens of Napa Valley's most preeminent hosts and wineries through this gorgeous collection of photography, recipes and stories by Blakesley Chappellet and Briana Marie. Our colorful and festive spread will have your mouth watering and excited to throw your next fiesta!

Highlights of our Ceja Vineyards wine cruise to Alaska aboard Celebrity Solstice. Ports included: Ketchikan, Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau, Skagway & Victoria B.C. 7 days of delicious food, wine, adventures and unforgettable memories with 84 of our fabulous wine club members and familia! Can you beat that?

  • Beauty + Wildlife - I had high expectations of beautiful landscapes and scenery but was absolutely blown away! I’ve also never seen so many Bald Eagles and whales in my life. 
  • Food + Wine - If you enjoy fresh seafood like crab, salmon and halibut there’s no better place than Alaska! Aboard the Celebrity Solstice we hosted 7 private Ceja wine and food focused events. Top events included: A 4 course luncheon paired with our vino, a cooking demonstration paired with Ceja wine (we made chilaquiles paired with our Pinot Noir), and a Salsa dance and wine drinking party! This cruise is meant for foodies and winos who love nature's paradise. 
  • Company You keep - We went with 84 of our awesome wine club members and it made the experience 10 times better! It was a unique and fun bonding experience who are forever linked to our familia as lifelong friends. 
  • Excursions - When in port you MUST take advantage of each destination in Alaska. Top excursions included: A Bald Eagle wilderness boat ride and crab feast (Ketchikan). Cruising through Glacier Bay. Get your cameras ready! (Tracy Arm Ford). Canoe trip to Mendenhall Glacier + waterfall (Juneau). Taking a train ride through the White Pass and Yukon Route then biking down the mountain. Scary but so fun! (Skagway). Lastly, walking through the magical Butchart Gardens at dusk (Victoria, BC).

Sedona and The Grand Canyon in 72 Hours

Hiking Cathedral Rock Trail

Hiking Cathedral Rock Trail

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Sedona and The Grand Canyon for the very first time. It was spectacular. It was even more special because I went with my mom. We enjoyed and indulged in 72 hours of non-stop adventure, spa treatments, hiking, relaxation, dining and drinking wine through the desert lands of Arizona. It was the perfect girls trip!

You can't beat these views or natural desert beauty.
