The Paper Princess

How cute are these greeting cards by The Paper Princess??! Usually when I get email from Daily Candy, I take a quick glance, then click delete but these are hard to resist. I mean, who doesn't love getting handmade cards from someone they care about? Pin It

A.P.C Fall Collection

I wasn't ready for summer to be over, but French clothing company A.P.C. has some great pieces for Fall.  I'm loving that trapeze trench coat with the caramel colored leather boots! Pin It

backyard photoshoot

These photos were taken in my backyard by my friend Gizelle Hernandez a little while ago for her photography class.  I've been meaning to post these sooner because she's so talented.

feeling blue

Blue is definitely my favorite color, it just makes me smile when I put it on.  I found these cool, blue pieces on one of my go-to websites, Net-A-Porter. What color do you feel your best in?

To a T

The new ad campaign for  T by Alexander Wang featuring Zoe Kravitz caught my eye right away.  Her earthy yet rocker- girl style pair perfectly with these comfy, slouchy clothes. I'm really feeling the classic boatneck dress. What do you think of this ad series? Those of you who live in NYC have you been seeing them everywhere? Pin It

griffith observatory

It's kind of crazy that before yesterday, I've lived in LA nearly my whole life and have never been to the Griffith Observatory.  Matt and I decided to check it out around 6:30pm to catch the sunset.  Since the parking lot was full, we had to park at the bottom and do a bit of a hike to get to the top of the hill but the view was totally worth it.  There's also a huge telescope you can look at to see the moon up close which isn't something you get to do everyday.  After all the walking, we got some dinner at Alcove Cafe in Los Feliz... a bit crowded but the onion rings are to die for!

weekend getaway

Palm Springs Windmills
Me lounging by the pool 
3 desserts for the birthday girl
Morning Walk
Birthday Cards
In the Salt Water Pool
Barneys Outlet

Palm Springs was a much needed getaway and it felt great to be in the sweltering desert heat. My mom wanted to relax on her birthday so we stayed at the Miramonte Resort.  Every day was filled with activities like morning walks and Hydro Yo Chi (a water  yoga/tai chi combo).  Of course we had to splurge on massages at The Well spa which features pure salt water pools and personalized aromatherapy treatments using Tara Oils.  On the drive home, it was impossible to not make a stop at the Barney's outlet in Cabazon outlet mall.  Have you taken any fun summer road trips?

summer lovin

So the weather in LA hasn't been the typical hot high 80-degree weather we usually have in August but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy all of the things I love about summer..... long maxi dresses, sleeping in late, big floppy hats, ice cream and fun sunglasses.  What is your favorite summer indulgence?

sophia morte

Pretty Boy Necklace

Halo Necklace

Spike Ring

Johnny Morte Layers Necklace
How rad is this new collection of jewelry called Sophia Morte?! LA based designer Lilian Emrani draws her inspiration anywhere from art deco architecture to punk rock culture.  My favorite piece is the Pretty Boy necklace in oxidized sterling silver which is cast from an actual human mouth. It's the perfect accessory to take the "tough girl" look to the next level.
