Happy Sunday

Happy last Sunday before Turkey Day, my favorite holiday!  Today, Drew and I are heading to Carson to watch the MLS Playoff game between the Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy. Until then, I have been looking to the internet for inspiration in my day to day life, and I found some links I would love to share. I love this flower painting from this etsy store. I just finished one similar last week! THIS ONE from Thefastcompany.com is about creativity and what is good to know when your twenty.  The basis of this article is “Just do it” which I love, […]

Gjusta – Venice’s New Bakery

Today was Drew’s day off, so we always try to get out and do something fun, out-of-the-ordinary, or new. Today’s adventure featured a bike ride down Venice to a new restaurant/bakery, Gjusta, the newest addition from the people who created Gjelina and GTA — Two amazing food stops along Abbott Kinney; both have been featured in Savor Magazine, Food Network, LA Times, etc. Anyway, we had been meaning to stop by and check it out because even after her early mornings and long days, she comes home to tell us how amazing the place is. The building is incredible.  It’s located […]

Movie Night – Netflix

When you are in a long-term relationship, the excitement of dressing up and going out gets overshadowed by the comfortable clothes and messy-bun hair of a stay-at-home movie night.  Fridays for us are typically that.  Drew and I order take-out, browse Netflix, and settle into the couch with stove-top popcorn for dessert.  Usually, the longest part of the night is turning on Netflix and browsing the selection, which is huge and typically overwhelming.  So I have created a couple of lists, what’s good-movies, binge-watching TV shows, what is on my must see list, and documentaries. GOOD MOVIES Beginners Starring Ewan McGreggor […]

Hey there, Fellow Millennials!

I Just read a couple of interesting articles about our generation: The Millennials, as they call us.  I don’t know about you, but I get pretty tired of the older generations complaining about our complacency and “narcissism.”  I feel like I’m working pretty hard at this life in my twenties and doing the best I can, to work a menial job and payback my thousands of dollars of loans (That were supposed to buy me a ticket on the elevator going up) yet the constant push of things I read on the web… Get me down.  I understand that we […]

Urban Jungle

It’s getting cooler in LA, but not quite cold enough for pants.  I love this skirt because it’s fun and comfortable.  Who can resist a little animal print?  Sometimes I make it big with a colored tank top when I go out at night, but for daytime it’s great to tone it down with a comfy sweater. Welcome to the Jungle. For the last several years I have been purchasing satchel bags, that swing over the shouder providing a comfortable hang and leaves both arms free. I love this two-toned one I got last spring at Cotton On.  It goes […]

You’ve Got Mail

There is something about this year’s seasonal change that has got me missing the East Coast, the Rocky Mountains, really anywhere that actually has seasons.  And strangely, I can feel the change in temperatures and the days shorten as we get deeper into autumn in LA.  None-the-less, I miss sweaters, pumpkin patches, fall festivities, and bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils.  Okay, okay, maybe I just need a little Tom Hanks fix. “I would have asked for your phone number and I wouldn’t have been able to wait 24 hours before calling and asking, “How about coffee, drinks, dinner, a movie, […]

Feels Like Fall

It took me 3 years to really acclimate to Southern California’s weather.  This is the first year that October came, and it actually sort of feels like fall.  It’s also the first year that I got really season-sick (like Homesick) I miss the colors of fall, especially fall in Boston.  There is really no better place than that. Everyone is back in school; the leaves change to beautiful shades of orange, red, and yellow; and the weather is a perfect mix of chilly and warm.  And the enthusiasm for Halloween is incredibly contagious!  It’s the only place I’ve been where […]

Link Reads

I wanted to share my favorite blogs and posts this week.  Some fun reads/videos to get you thinking: weekend! This one caught my eye with a link and picture from HBO’s GIRLS. But while reading it, I was trying to place where each of my friends and I fit in.  The girl who wrote the post is a little younger then me, however, she still has a pretty good gauge on post-collegiate girls in their 20s. (I think I’d be the Improv Star) I watched This Video with Sarah Jessica Parker a while ago, and recently the Vogue Channel released a […]

Spooky Season’s Greetings

I’ve lived all over the country; Colorado, Minnesota, Massachusetts, etc. And in all of those places, there are very sweet, family involved activities that surround the fall season, like apple picking, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches.  In Los Angeles, the always unconventional, locals treat themselves to something a little different.  They dress in their best, understated t-shirts and jeans, and venture to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror nights OR Knott’s Scary Farm to get their seasonal scare from costume-clad actors who are having, probably, as much fun as the people being scared. It’s turning into a fall tradition for Drew and I, […]
