As a twenty something, the term “wedding season” takes on a whole new meaning, even if you aren’t yet on the path to marriage yourself. It seems that summer plans these days revolve completely around all the weddings I will be … Continue reading

I just need to take a quick sec to brag about my latest thrifting experience. Every 6 months or so I go to Crossroads Trading Co. in Santa Monica with a few bags of clothes that I’m ready to donate. … Continue reading

a little monday motivation

I saw this photo on Pinterest the other day and thought it was just about the cutest thing ever. It inspired me to do a little pick-me-up post (that doesn’t involve shoes or purchases?!) because there are a ton of cute/sweet/deep/silly/funny/thoughtful quotes out there. Sometimes “inspirational” words can come off a bit forced or cheesy, but sometimes it’s just what you need to hear! Hopefully you get a little something from at least one. They all got to me in one way or another. Enjoy! Xoxo

life update according to instagram

I feel like talking about the weather and the date are both such clichés, but I just have to say that I can’t believe we’re already in March! (And I addressed the weather in my last post, so I won’t bore you with the sunny details again 😉 ). Between school and work, life has been busy, busy! Here’s a quick look at life lately according to my Instagram.

This week brought us the lovely holiday, Valentines Day. Ya either love it or ya hate, I say embrace it! (Oh God that rhymed, and I thought I couldn’t get cheesier.) It’s a day to be overly gushy and love, love! Personally we always celebrated it in my family growing up, and I looked forward to it every year. That is, until I got my first boyfriend and entered those few sketchy years where it meant cheap wine and a last minute Hallmark Card. Well now we’re awfully mature and this year it meant fancy champagne, a beautiful bouqet & Marc Jacobs (I’ll post on that little guy soon!) courtesy of my handsome man, tea in Beverly Hills, and a festive party! When my mom and sister decided to plan an impromptu trip to LA to visit me, I thought it was the perfect time to pay them back for all those years of Valentines bliss. I went out and bought as many pink, red, and heart themed things as I could find. I’d say our celebration was a success! Complete with pink drinks and cake pops. Yum!
