Santa Monica Beach & Body Image

Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend, are refreshed, and ready to start the week. I wanted to share a few photos from a recent trip to Santa Monica Beach. While we only live 30 minutes from the beach, it seems rare for us to make a trip to the beach, to sit by the water and put our toes in the sand. This life guard tower has been something I wanted to sit at for awhile.  I know…

The Foldable Tote

Today’s giveaway on the blog features this practical, foldable tote from Vine Street Market USA. If you live in Los Angeles, the recent ban on plastic bags has made the streets cleaner, but shopping a bit more difficult. I always keep reusable bags in my car, but remembering to grab them before heading into a store is another thing. Remembering to put them back in the car before my next shopping trip is a whole other struggle. What I love…

New Year Detox & Goals

Every year I like to evaluate the past year. My achievements, my failures, disappointment, the roles I play. What were my goals? How did they shift? Where are my priorities now? What do I want for myself this year? These are all questions I have learned to ask myself from The Best Year Yet. I first discovered the book about 4 years ago with my good friend Sarah. We had finished the Artists Way together and started meeting every week…

Merry Christmas & Thank You!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones! Today, of all days, hug those near and dear to you a little tighter and longer. 2015 has been an incredible year filled with love, tears, blessings, bumps, joys, and disappointment, but through it all, I had you there supporting me and that has meant more than I will ever be able to express to you. The amount of snapchat, Instagram comments, video comments, and outright love…

Bobee Paper Lanterns

Today’s blog post is on these beautiful paper lanterns from Bobee. You can find Bobee Paper Lanterns and other decorative items on Amazon. while these fun pink, grey, and white lanterns are meant for baby showers and birthday parties, I like how they add some color and fun to my work space.  Working from home and for myself, I tend to spend most of my time stationed at my desk. These lanterns make me smile whenever I look at them…

Apartment Tour

Here is my Los Angeles Apartment Tour video with a bit of home decor. After a few stressful incidences at our old apartment, Hubs and I decided to move last minute the end of September and found our dream apartment. We have lived in some pretty awful places with tons of horror stories. Let me know if you’d like an apartment finding tip post. If you watch my vlog channel, we moved early October after returning from New York City.…

NYC Trip + GIVEAWAY (Closed)

New York City has always been a magical place for me. For as long as I can remember the lure of Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and all that New York has to offer has been a love affair. I actually lived in NYC for a brief stint. Unfortunately being a NYC resident did not suit me, but I love visiting! What better excuse to visit New York than for a beauty convention? Generation Beauty by Ipsy is one of my favorite…

Life Changes and StyleCon OC

This year has been crazy good to me and the last few weeks have been insane! There has been many downs, but also a lot of ups. Currently I’m sitting in a disaster zone that will eventually be my office and beauty room. If you do not follow me on social media or watch my vlog channel, I’m moving to a new part of L.A. for the first time in 8 years. When I first moved to L.A. I found…
