Brunching at Queenstown

Sunshine, a pretty dress, a yummy mimosa, and a delicious brunch: my idea of a perfect Sunday. I don’t know what it is about treating yourself to brunch, but it’s impossible to have a bad day after you’ve indulged in loaded french toast or a spicy eggs benedict, paired with bottomless mimosas. I was recently invited to Queenstown Public Houseto enjoy their brunch menu and let me tell you…it took…

Coachella Lovin’

Coachella Lovin’

After all of the anticipation, the biggest music festival of the year is finally around the corner. Whether you’ll be lusting over Lana, or getting lost in the lights with Ellie, you’re going to need some solid outfits to brave the crowds at Coachella this weekend. Coachella has developed into a fashion week of it’s own sort; a music festival fashion-weekend if you will. Clothing brands have even…

I am a lipstick fiend; I will literally buy a new lipstick just because it’s sunny out. I’ve purchased many different types: matte, semi-matte, glossy, thick, light, etc. The issue here is that despite my colorful collection, my lips just cannot…

Put a Bow on It

Put a Bow on It

When I was in NYC recently with my bff, we made every second count when it came to exploring the city. I don’t think I’ve ever walked so much in my life, but it definitely paid off in more ways than one! One morning we decided to explore the Chelsea Market. We made an impromptu decision to stop in the Anthro just outside the market’s entrance because c’mon, who passes up a chance to go into an…

Spring Break: Hair Edition

Spring Break: Hair Edition

I’ve been loving the blog post requests I’ve been getting lately! Most recently, a reader going on a Spring Break vacation asked for a couple of hair ideas. I like to play with my hair, and have since I was a little girl (aka: I was that creative 6th grader who wore bouncy butterfly clips, and thought a whole head of corn-row-esque twists was the best hairstyle invented). Thankfully I have broken…

Artefacts Collection: Aqua Love

20140328-112643.jpg

If you would have asked me a couple years ago what kind of jewelry I wear on a day-to-day basis, it was slim to none and all silver. Fast forward to now, and not only have I expanded my collection to an amount that borders hoarding, but it has slowly transitioned into a collection of gold. I’ve ditched my silver simplicity (minus my coveted silver cross necklace from my guy) and embraced the…

Pineapples & Diamonds

I think we can all agree that we’re ready for Spring to show it’s face; the cold weather just isn’t cutting it anymore. What better way to force Spring into it’s well deserved spot than by wearing bright colors to encourage its arrival? When I saw this pineapple shirt, I knew it was the perfect top to throw on for a Saturday around town; to dress it up, I threw on these gorgeous drop earrings from

Live-In (Legging) Lifestyle

Something that I don’t highlight on this blog nearly enough is how important being active is to me. I find it so rewarding (and borderline necessary to function) to wake up and get a good workout in before the day starts. I grew up hiking, swimming, doing gymnastics, playing soccer and tennis, and partaking in neighborhood water balloon fights every summer, so the desire to be outside and be…

A Saturday in Pastels

A Saturday in Pastels

Over the past weekend I got to hang out with one of my favorite bloggers in San Diego: the beautiful and stylish Kayla, from A Darling Dream. The weather was ridiculously amazing, so naturally we made our way to the prettiest spot we know: The Hotel Del Coronado. If you haven’t been, it should be at the top of your Spring to-do list. We got a glass of champagne and wasted the evening away…

Daily Makeup Routine

So I’m no makeup expert, but I recently got a request for a post about my daily makeup routine! Since I don’t want to officially claim to know what I’m doing, I am just going to highlight the products I cannot live without, and the steps I take each morning.

{If you haven’t caught my “Currently Coveting” posts over the last year and a half, then let me catch you up to speed: they’re very focused…

Faux. So?

It’s no secret that I’m slightly obsessed with By Luciana’s prints, written about here and here. Thanks to her undeniable ability to transform simple sayings into pieces of art (whether it be on a piece of paper, or your favorite white tee) I now have a new obsession to add to the already coveted prints she creates.

This “Faux. So?” shirt has been on repeat this last week. It’s so easy to pair…
