seasons change : restyle

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been participating in the #thankfullist2016 challenge – posting each day in November about something for which I’m thankful. It’s a simple task to slow down and practice gratitude during this holiday season, which can sometimes feel overwhelming with activity. Yesterday I shared how I am […]

fall wanderlust and changing the world

Just over here willing fall to come to LA. I spoke too soon in my exclamation about sweater weather, and I worry I jinxed it. Last night I was looking through my closet, staring forlornly at all the jackets and coats going unworn…then lit a “Leaves” candle (it’s really called that) and wished this fantasy true.

oh, autumn : bucket list update

Every season I like to make a list – a bucket list of sorts. I live for celebrating the every day and holidays alike, and this way I can stay on track and squeeze in as much seasonal goodness as possible. This autumn I’ve been making some major headway on my list, and it’s filling […]

east coast meets west coast : fall style

My friend Nikki and I teamed up again to share our fall styles from the east coast to the west coast. Not going to lie, I’m feeling a little envious she gets to spend this special time of year in New York City. It’s just the best, isn’t it? I fulfill just about every cliché in my […]

fall garden

Los Angeles may not bring autumnal weather (it has been noticeably cooler the past two days), but don’t doubt that I’ll bring the season to my life any way I can. A 600 square foot apartment doesn’t leave much room for fall decor, so instead I like to spruce up our outdoor area (which in fact isn’t our outdoor area […]

oh, autumn : bucket list

Try as I might, I can’t contain my excitement for autumn and the subsequent holiday season. Everything about this time of year just makes me so giddy inside. I will continue to mourn LA’s lack of fall weather and foliage (though I am feeling a “chill” in the air), but that will not stop me […]

sweet summertime : final bucket list update

While the official start of fall isn’t until next week, autumnal weather seems to have come early for us Los Angelinos (knock on wood). Seriously, where is the September heat wave that has come in years past? I’m not complaining – I am just a little hesitant in my fall excitement because this never happens. […]

east coast meets west coast : summer style

My friend Nikki lives in NYC – you might have seen that I got to visit her earlier this year. We had the very best time, as we share just about every interest under the sun – from our career path (acting) to fashion, cocktail hour, photo booths, and fries. She’s also the one who encouraged me […]

sweet summertime : bucket list update 2

It’s time for another update! Even though fall doesn’t technically begin until the end of September, summer always seems to wind down in August. I live for summer, but can I say I’m already excited for fall?! This year has LEGIT flown by (and I know, I’m old for saying that), but how is the […]

sweet summertime

Summer is upon us, and I am ecstatic. Something about this season, especially this year, breathes new life into me. Sure, with this sudden heatwave I’m having flashbacks of the unbearable, unsleepable heat in our apartment last year. But even though the heat drains and exhausts you, it makes you feel like you are really living, you […]
