December 9, 2013

So, I have found my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles! For months, I've heard nothing but amazing reviews about LA's most talked about restaurant, Bestia. I have wanted to try Bestia for a long time, and it finally worked out perfectly when I was in the area for The Downtown Art Walk, which occurs every month on the 2nd Thursday.

Sweater Weather

December 4, 2013

With the temperatures dropping in LA, my style becomes more relax with over-sized sweaters, scarves, and boots. The cold weather definitely makes me want to bundle up in knits, sip hot cocoa in front of a fireplace, and have Christmas music blasting - it's the perfect weather for comfy sweaters.

'Tis the Season

December 2, 2013

It's officially the holidays - my absolute favorite time of the year! From the decorations to Christmas shopping and the holiday parties, 'tis the season for laughter and cheer. I created a bucket list of all the things I want to do this December, so feel free to join me for some holiday fun!

Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales

November 29, 2013

I've actually never been to Black Friday because I've learned quickly that it’s best done at home, in bed, and online. So, I’ve put together a list of the best (and my favorite) online sales going on today and some through the weekend. Happy Shopping!

The idea of comfort is always best on the weekends. As much as I love my skinny jeans, I'll occasionally want to pair my boyfriend jeans with some polished pieces, classic heels, and a striped top for a comfortable day of shopping and running countless errands. Downtown Pasadena has everything a lady wants!

SoCal Road Trip

October 24, 2013

Southern California has always had a special place in my heart. Trust me, I absolutely love to travel, anywhere from the Caribbean, Asia, and Europe, but this past trip, I went 'old school' and decided to take a mini road trip along the coast. Yes, I had an actual map. And yes, the drive was beautiful.

Falling for Leather

October 17, 2013

Fall is a officially here - my absolute favorite season! Not only because the weather in LA is perfect and pumpkin spiced lattes are back (I'm obsessed), but now I can shop for a whole new wardrobe and prepare for the cooler months. Jackets, boots, and scarves...I'm seriously excited just thinking about it.

Getaway to Catalina Island

October 2, 2013

It's the Catalina Wine Mixer! It's been years since I've last visited Catalina Island, and to my surprise, I actually loved every bit of it! Catalina Island is one of Southern California's best-kept secret - and the best part: it's just an hour boat ride off the coast from Los Angeles.

7 Days of Happiness

September 10, 2013

It's really easy to get caught up and often forget what's important in the world. We can all get complacent, take things for granted, and become less motivated through work, fitness or even relationships. Lately, I've been in a little rut, and realized that the easiest way to reach your own happiness is to simply take a moment to breathe and to be thankful. During the week, dedicate some time to creating your own happiness...

Summer Must-Dos

August 26, 2013

We only have a few weeks left of summer, so why not take full advantage of the warm weather with countless beach trips, girl's night out, and travel often? Summer is absolutely one of my favorite time of the year, where you can enjoy the sun, the beach, and even the summer activities.

Livin' La Vida Cabo

August 7, 2013

As mentioned before in my previous Cabo San Lucas post, I was beyond excited to have spent a few days on vacation at one of the places I've always wanted to visit. It's one of the best vacation spots for those living in California because the flight is literally only 3 hours away from Los Angeles. I mean, if flights were cheap...I'd do weekend getaways to Baja California all day, everyday.

Summer in LA

July 26, 2013

Where do you like to explore in Los Angeles? There are many times when I often forget how big LA really is. Although I've lived here for over a year, I tend to forget that LA has so much to offer...and I still have yet to explore it!

Camel ride in Cabo San Lucas

July 19, 2013

Who would've thought that there were camels in Baja California? lol Jet-setting from Las Vegas to Cabo San Lucas, I was officially on summer vacation and was absolutely loving life.

5 Things...

June 17, 2013

Do you sometimes feel like you're traveling through life on autopilot, going through the motions, and having every day pass like the one before it? No matter where you are in your life, try to always remember that everyday is a gift.

Black & White

June 9, 2013

Who says you can't wear black in the summer? Although I love colors and patterns to any outfit, I decided to do a classic black & white, while adding in key accessories to give that extra POP!

The Flower Fields

May 11, 2013

There's nothing like spending a beautiful afternoon at a flower garden to welcome Spring & Summer. You cannot help but smile from seeing all the flowers, the colors, and all the happy families embracing natural beauty.

Weekend Recap of Coachella

April 27, 2013

Do you sometimes wish you could go back in time and relive certain experiences? I still have Coachella withdrawals and seriously wish I could go back to one of my favorite weekends with my closest friends.

Floral for Spring

April 5, 2013

It's officially Spring! From the warmer weather to the bright colors and prints making its way back into our daily wardrobes, there's nothing that says spring like flowers in full bloom.

A Bridal Tea Party

March 29, 2013

I can finally write about my best friend's bridal shower! One of my favorite hotels in LA is the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena.

Be Mine, Valentine.

February 14, 2013

Whether it's indulging in chocolate and cupcake heaven (sweets are my weakness) or the thought of beautiful flowers, I've always loved this holiday. But it's important to remember that Valentine's Day isn't just about the gifts and the romantic weekend getaway with that special someone.

Pretty in Pink

February 6, 2013

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and it's the perfect time to add a little pink to your wardrobe. 

Winter Sun

January 24, 2013

There are many reasons as to why I absolutely love living in California - one being that we have amazing weather, even during the winter season.  From the beach to shopping outdoors in Orange County, I definitely enjoyed having the sunshine and the warm weather for a few days.

Pirates of St. Marteen

January 18, 2013

Oh, I've missed you!  I may still be in denial, but nothing compares to soaking up the sun in the Caribbean with a drink in hand.  Our family vacation ended with one of my favorite days of the trip in St. Marteen.

Animal Print

January 8, 2013

I wouldn't say that I'm a huge fan of animal print, but I am currently obsessed with my new leopard print fitted-jeans.  Only in California do we get beautiful weather and sunshine in January, so it naturally feels like the perfect thing to wear in LA, even in the middle of winter. 

Learn Something New

January 6, 2013

Happy New Year, everyone! A new year isn't just about creating new resolutions for yourself, but it's about taking risks, making changes, and having fun while you embark on a new journey. With 2013 being off to a great start, I wanted to do something that I've never done before.  I wanted to learn something new....and try photography.

I've had my camera for years, but actually using it is a different story.  Let's just say, I found it hidden in the back of my closet. This weekend, I decided to take my camera with me and go on an adventure to a local park.
