Bike Around Town

I'm getting ready to finally (yes, finally) get a new bike that suits my desired commuting style better. And I'm dreaming of a bike like this one... anyone know who makes it or where I can get something similar?

Feeling Blue

Just got this t-shirt and pair of ballet flats from Urban Outfitters, and didn't realize until they got here how blue I must have been feeling! Cobalt blue anyone? Oui s'il vous plait!

Creamy Summer Whites

Something about crisp white whites have always been hard for me to wear, even during the summer months. So I'm loving the idea of these warmer creamy summer whites and off-whites. What do you think? Do you feel comfortable in bright whites or do you prefer slightly creamier whites?

Key Collection

For some time, I've been collecting vintage keys (shown below). And this past weekend I inherited my Dad's personal collection of keys I didn't even know he had (shown above). Imagine my excitement! Seriously. I am in love with all the unique, bizare, and also ordinary keys in his collection!

His & Hers Cocktails

Last night we had an impromptu cocktail night - and ended up with the perfect "his & hers" cocktails. Mine was a pink-lemonade vodka and his a manhattan. Both were so delicious!

DIY Gift Wrap + PomPoms

For my Mom's birthday yesterday, it wasn't until late in the night the day before that I realized I didn't have any new and excited wrap for her presents. So I decided to make do with what I had - some brown paper bags and scrap fabric. Here's what I did... so maybe you can to the same! Enjoy!

You'll need:
- scrap fabric (felt worked well for me!)
- circle fabric cutter
- hot melt glue gun
- brown paper bags
- tape & scissors

Happy Birthday Mom!!

I happened to be at Fort Mason this past weekend as the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer was ending - all the pink and loud cheering as people crossed the finish brought back memories from the time my Mom and I did the walk in LA 6 years ago. Although it was exhausting and tough at times, it was a such an amazing and inspiring experience. And I absolutely loved doing it with you Mom! Happy Birthday!!

Aren't these photographs amazing?! My hair has volume... but not this much. Wish I could rock these big hair styles on a daily basis. Love it!!

Cirque Party Dress

I've never been a particularly girly girl, but I just can't get over this dress from Ouma. I think I need to throw a party in my honor so that I have an excuse buy and wear it!

Giant Jenga

Our good friends, Ali and Ryan, were given this home-made giant jenga set as a wedding gift. The blocks were made from 2x4's and personalized for them with their initials. Such a great idea! So fun to play and even more colossal when they fall over!

Hermosa Beach on the 4th

{the finale of the Hermosa Beach Iron Man: a 1 mile run + 1 mile surfboard paddle + 6 pack beer chug, which usually ends in lots of vomiting and a mosh pit}

The 4th of July in Hermosa Beach is one of the craziest days on the strand - and we were lucky enough to go down there for it this year! Lots of biking around, the greatest people watching ever, and our own personal firework show!
