With everyone’s New Year’s resolutions and #NewYearNewMe-posts floating around, I’d say that January is a really important time of year to talk about self love and self acceptance. What better time for me to wrap up my collaboration with Reebok Women with one last #PerfectNever post, than at the outset of a new year?
Autumn can be tied to a lot of different wood-themed items: a toasty fireplace, a cozy log cabin–you catch my drift (pun totally intended…) But this season, our friends at JORD Wood Watches are helping Jeremy and I bring a rustic wooden vibe to an item that’s a little more unexpected: our watches!
Suedes, leathers, and velvets, oh my! Fall is officially upon us (we’ve even had a few gloomy days here, in Los Angeles!)
One of the colors I am most excited to incorporate into my fall palette would definitely be oxblood/burgundy. It’s such a warm–even festive–color, yet it’s borderline become an accepted neutral for the fall season.
As I’m sure you already know–thanks to countless carefully-posed, autumn-themed Instagram posts–today marks the first official day of fall. To be honest, it’s unseasonably warm here, in Los Angeles, but I’m still slowly trying to incorporate some key autumn pieces into my wardrobe, as I wait for the temps in LA to become a little more latte-appropriate.
It’s always fun to jump on new trends and try out unique accessories. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of these “bolo” necklaces—We probably have festival trends to thank for that. I’ve been alternating between this one and my velvet choker, depending on whether I’m going for a more casual or dressy vibe. Either way, I’m really glad chocker-style necklaces/ties are back in style. I love the look!
Recently, Jeremy and I have been entertaining in our new home quite a bit. We love to host brunches and game nights and have guests over as much as possible. Sometimes I like to go all-out and bake fancy desserts to impress our company (I made this cheesecake a couple of weeks ago, and it took me almost a whole day to put it together!). But then, there are also times where I can’t devote whole days to slaving away in my kitchen….Here, I’ve composed 3 different super-quick-and-easy, last-minute dessert ideas for whatever you have planned today. Most-likely, you already have all of these ingredients in your kitchen, and I made each of these desserts in under 30 minutes—making these great choices for a last-minute potluck contribution or hostess gift. Enjoy!
Living in Los Angeles, it’s nearly impossible not to be influenced by the “basic” lifestyle. We drink green smoothies, we are obsessed with boutique fitness classes, and we all wear the same matte lipsticks and white sneakers. Honestly, I love all that! But sometimes it’s fun to be a little darker and dress a little edgier.
