This post is long overdue as it’s officially been over half a year since my 2016 Christmas trip to the UK. There’s no shortage of posts about that trip – I’ve shared Christmas in London, a winter look, a roundup of my favorite parks in London, the hotels I stayed in England, and a some snaps from East London. Just because there’s already been somewhat of an overload of UK travel posts, however, does not mean that York doesn’t deserve its…

I. freakin’. love. San Diego. It’s just the perfect place. And I miss the good old days when I lived alone on Torrey Pines Rd, a 15 minute walk away from La Jolla Shores. That’s also when I started this blog so I whipped up lots of content about SD. I photographed and wrote about places from Mission Bay to Windansea to Point Loma… Even though those posts were shorter and less time consuming, they were some real gems to me. Nostalgia aside, now I know…

Yesterday I got to dress up for a company event that I was super excited for. I had bought this dress (Lush) on a whim from a boutique in Los Feliz a couple months ago, but never wore it. It turned out to be perfect for the occasion because it was classy and comfortable. I felt really feminine in it and got lots of compliments. I paired it with some Cathy Jean nude sandals and a Miu Miu bag. Sunglasses…

Recently the bf and I have been living pretty different schedules, so I’ve been taking advantage of waking early to get breakfast by myself, and it’s absolutely refreshing. One Sunday morning I went to Spazzio Cafe in Brentwood, makeup-free and a book in hand and enjoyed a ham and avocado crepe (they make the best crepes!) and a steamy latte. Then I spontaneously decided to drive to the beach and read on a bench in Palisades Park, overlooking the ocean…

Happy Memorial Day! Apparently, this day marks the first day of summer and also the first day that we can wear white. There’s absolutely no sense in this rule, but I went ahead and wore white anyways since it’s one of my favorite colors. I got this white shirt dress at Urban Outfitters about a month ago. It’s pretty sheer so I bought it thinking I could wear it more as a cover up for breezy summer outfits. I think…

Yesterday I had one of those perfect Saturdays. The day already started off well when I woke up at 8:30am. I used to sleep in until 12 or 1pm on weekends and that always left me feeling lethargic and unproductive. So now that I’ve realized how much nicer a day can turn out when I have an early start, I’m making quite an effort to become more of a morning person. After getting ready, I went to meet up with…

I’ve mentioned my love for and quite frankly, obsession with unique hotels a feeew times before on this blog and have written about Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs, The Rookery in London and Hotel Indigo in York. There have been more similar hotels that I had the fortune to stay at before I started this blog, however, and it makes me sad that I didn’t take pretty enough pictures for me share them now. So I think it only makes…

Please excuse the complete lack of creativity in the title – it’s not at all a reflection of how excited I actually am about this look! As you probably know, Urban Outfitters had a 30% off *all*dresses and rompers in stores, so I hurried over to the Santa Monica store, braving the crowd, in hopes of scoring one or two cute dresses for the summer. Of course, UO never disappoints. I found this abstract black and white number that I…
