{LA to NY}

August 26, 2011

Hey there!!! I’m off to NYC for an extended trip and I couldn’t be more excited. Lots of fun will be had except for Hurricane Irene that plans to pay a visit. 😦 But regardless, here is a glimpse at what I’ve packed. I’d be lying if I told you this is all I packed {snickering}. I managed to squeeze a lot more. Yes, I only packed a carry-on.


{Recently purchased shoes that I wear with Ohhh, everything!}

{Yep it’ll be 80º but I love my scarves for layering pieces}

P.S. If you are ever in need of a quick guide on how to pack, I posted one here.

Have a good weekend!!

PhotobucketDespite the crazy week I had last week by Friday I wasn’t quite sure what would make it better. As packages were delivered around the office late in the morning, I couldn’t have been more excited that my iPad had arrived. You really have no idea!  Even though I was impatient during the 3 weeks it took to get here, it came at the perfect time.  I had an instant smile and spent most all of the weekend playing with it.

Hope you had a good weekend!

I want to wish all the moms out there a Happy Mothers Day! I thought I’d share a few photos of my mom. As I was going through them it was fun taking a trip down memory lane. I of course found a few baby pictures of myself…although some of them are cute, I’ll share those at later time!

Happy Mothers Day Mom – you mean the world to me! So very thankful and blessed for all that you are and have given me. One being my family and amazing 3 sisters.


{my weekend}

Photobucket {Not only did I have a great weekend but the weather completely spoiled me. I couldn’t help myself but to want to only be outside. Weekends like this remind me why I moved here in the first place.}
Photobucket {My older sister came into town and we went to Umami burger in Santa Monica. I’ve heard such great things about it and since I hadn’t been either I couldn’t wait to take her.}
Photobucket{Hmmm, Coke in a glass bottle}

Photobucket{Sooo good! And that is garlic aioli sauce on the side, amazing.}

{a day at the beach}

April 22, 2011


We are all longing for a day at the beach or at least some warm weather. I feel ours was last weekend and more than excited for more of them to come. But before we are in full swing I put together my things for the day in the sun!!!

1. Bikini: I adore this bright orange one with fringe.
2. Cover up: a white, soft, cotton, button down w/ rolled up sleeves; I find to be kinda sexy.
3. Straw floppy hat: I like mine big and dramatic.
4. Nail polish: Another bright color to go with your suit is ideal.
5. Oversized sunglasses: For me the bigger the better. I’m in LOVE with these!!
6. Beach bag: Cutest accessory to add with your suit.
7. Music Ipod or Ipad: This would be set on shuffle to get a full mix of music!
8. Thong sandals: Very simple and chic especially with the gold tones.

Yesterday in my {10 things a woman should have} I mentioned a fitted blazer. This one fits me like a glove and is a true staple in my closet. By far my favorite as I can even layer pieces under it so that it’s versatile for the entire year or a tank for the warmer months. I like this too because I have print underneath and can cuff/push up the sleeves for different looks.


{10 things}

April 19, 2011


Sometimes on Monday mornings I like to look through a few magazines to get inspired for the week. Yesterday we had the new Allure {May 2011} in the office. I came to this page and couldn’t help but share. I find these 10 things every woman should have to hold soooo true.
1. Chandelier(s) – I actually have one in my bedroom and my bathroom, no mine was not $7600, but I found some stylish ones at Ikea.
2. A fitted blazer – I have more than I care to share, one of them being in tomorrows post!
3. Vintage jeans – What’s better than a good pair of your go-to jeans?
4. A game set – So fun to have around when a group of friends are over.
5. A pleated maxi skirt – Ha! You saw one on me yesterday (kinda) and more to come!! Can’t.Get.Enough.
6. Gold framed aviators – Just like this page mentions, gives you the rock star edge.
7. A big adventure – I think I’m still exploring my next adventure but for now I took a leap of faith and I moved across country…1 1/2 yrs ago.
8. A great tailor – Hard to come by but when you find one its for sure your best friend. I love mine!
9. Tennis lessons – A great workout for sure. I love my yoga but this works everything and you feel it.
10. High heels – “The higher the heel the sexier the shoe” Tommy Hilfiger <— Yes absolutely!!!
