valentine’s outfits through the decades

Love it or leave it, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. And instead of selling you on buying new clothes or sharing shades of pink (I know that’s not everyone’s thing), I thought I’d instead pull some date night outfit inspiration from my own closet – no shopping trips necessary. So if you’re feeling like you have “nothing to wear” […]

hollywood sign : a video

Sometimes you can live in a city for four years and still not see some of its most famous landmarks. I don’t think there’s anyone on this planet who isn’t familiar with the Hollywood sign, and whenever I see it in the distance (on the off chance the smog has cleared), it’s always a bit surreal. […]

etsy love this valentine’s

To be honest, the last thing anyone probably needs right now is a gift guide. We were inundated with them over the Christmas season, and there’s a lot of other stuff going on in the world that deserves our attention. Nevertheless, I think right now, when it is so easy to feel lost and helpless […]

new filmmakers los angeles

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the New Filmmakers Los Angeles festival – a monthly event sponsored in part by SAG-AFTRA (the actors’ union) that screens independent films. This was my first time attending an actual film festival, so I didn’t know what to expect. At the invite of my friend Maddie McGuire, […]

happy weekend links

The past couple of months have felt a little unreal, haven’t they? Tensions are high, decisions are being made that feel outside of our control, and most everyone is in a general state of WTF. On Monday my anxiety was hitting me at an almost all time high, and I’m sure what’s going on in […]

Today’s feature is exciting because Jennifer […]

winter nighttime routine

To my summer loving dismay, winter seems to be sticking around. I say there is “winter” in Los Angeles, but the real heroes in the Northeast would severely beg to differ. Nonetheless, this time of year I have to wear close-toed shoes and turn our heater on at night, so…it’s basically Antarctica over here. Either way, I have decided to […]

explore la : main street

Main Street in Santa Monica holds a special place in my heart. Maybe it’s because it’s one of the first spots we explored when we moved to LA (four years ago…WHAT). Or maybe it’s because it’s filled with so many cute shops and restaurants that are FAR AWAY from the hoards of tourists and shoppers at […]

one piece, five outfits

We have several trips and expenses coming up this year, so in an effort to save some money and get creative with my wardrobe/clothing rut (I did just read this and am pretty sure a closet purge is in high order), I thought it would be a fun challenge to style one item of clothing five […]

a book review : chasing slow

As I sit down to pen this review, I cannot fathom describing Erin Loechner’s book, Chasing Slow: Courage to Journey Off the Beaten Path, with even half so much grace and beauty as she so writes. But, here it is nonetheless. I hope it is adequate. I don’t remember when I first started following Erin’s journey […]
