It’s quite a drive south but definitely worth a half-day trip. For all the shabby/rustic chic lovers out there, this place is picture perfect. … Continue reading

Sometimes when my brain feels fried by Excel overdrive, I doodle weekend plans and assign different outfit pairings to each hypothetical event. An “event” could be as mundane as going to the local grocery store or as exciting as … “insert something exciting”, but hey, fashion shouldn’t discriminate.

LA weather is all sorts of funky this weekend. I woke up this morning to grey skies and stuffy air. Given the lack of sunshine, I opted for a lazy Sunday of television, massage and more television. I’m aiming to hit the gym after I write this blog post but we shall see…shabu shabu sounds … Continue reading

My baby brother turned 13 on Sunday! I had grand plans of taking him to Six Flags for some adrenaline rush but between piano lessons and family events, the newly anointed teenager was too busy for Six Flags!
