Valentine’s Day Outing + Review of Calvin Klein Reveal

Hello everyone! Did you have a relaxing three day weekend? I spent my Valentine’s Day in the cute little Dutch themed town of Solvang, located in Santa Barbara County. We took a day trip out with two of our great friends to enjoy wine and beer tastings, great food, and delectable desserts.

We ate lunch at Bacon & Brine, a small restaurant specializing in pork dishes. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich, Kyle had the salad of the day, and our friends ordered BLT (with kimche in it!)  and the Cuban sandwich. I did share my pulled pork sammie with Kyle, the portion was large and it tasted great, it included apple coleslaw inside, a yummy addition! This restaurant was featured on the Food Network, so that made it a little unique.

Normally my husband does not enjoy wearing cologne, however, we did receive a sample of the new Calvin Klein Reveal cologne from Influenster for testing purposes. So before we left the house I sprayed him with the fragrance! He smelled great throughout the day and this scent really goes well with him. I would definitely go out and purchase the full size. It is described as an oriental scent with a salt signature, then notes of sandalwood, musk and cashmeran follow.

This is actually a type of fragrance I really enjoy and reminds me very much of Avon’s popular cologne, Driven. My absolute favorite men’s fragrance!
