I know it’s been a while since I got engaged, but I have been getting a lot of questions about the actual proposal, the ring, and just more details in general, so I figured, why not share? A little background about my fiancé and I…we met online — on Tinder to be exact. Everyone is […]

LIGHT IT UP

I have a candle obsession, and not of the Yankee candle variety. Back in the day, it was way more difficult to find complex-scented wax. But vanilla beam or pumpkin spice? That was harder to avoid than the plague (I’m sorry if you enjoy those scents). Only luxury brands specializing in home fragrance used to carry refined […]

EURO TRIP 2015

So a lot has happened this year, and the year isn’t even over. The biggest “happening” was my engagement!!! I must say, I knew that it would one day happen, but I really didn’t know when or with who. The dating scene here in Los Angeles, isn’t the most ideal. Lots of non-longterm prospects were all […]

THE VALLEY OF NAPA

Firstly, I’d like to apologize for being a little distant. It’s not you, it’s me. I’ve been pretty swamped lately, and it’s starting to take a toll on my posting, so I will be dedicating this weekend to playing catch-up with you guys. So a few weekends back for V-day, I got whisked away on […]

STOP AND SMELL THE FLOWERS

The key to my heart is fresh flowers. Not diamonds, not handbags, not food (close though). Nothing instantly cheers me up as much as flowers do – whether I’m buying them myself and arranging them the way that I like, or surprised by a special someone – they are my weakness. Luckily, I have a […]

BACK AT IT…

I’ve stopped working out, I’ve stopped eating healthy, and my appetite has been as that of a caveman’s. You know what that means? The new year is the perfect time to fix this problem-o. I know, I know… every single time a new year begins, everyone decides they want to jump on the fitness bandwagon, […]

WHAT ARE YOU GIFTING?

Once the month of December hits, every mall becomes a chaotic hell hole on weekends AND weekdays. It’s as if nobody works, and everyone has woken from the year’s slumber. Crowds give me the worst anxiety and definitely steer me away from doing holiday shopping, that’s why I stick to online shops. Here are some […]

MINI ESCAPE TO THE PARKER

An escape from our daily lives is crucial for sanity, and if you can turn your getaway into a mini one, then you can squeeze them in more frequently. That, I’m all for. For Californians, Palm Springs is always a great choice for a quick trip (along with Newport/Laguna Beach, Vegas, Santa Barbara, etc), and […]

MINTY MELONS

July 4th is the quintessential American holiday, and it’s a day that brings everyone together for some good ol’ grub, great company, and fireworks.  The four-day weekend wouldn’t be complete without a refreshing cocktail in hand, and to satisfy my yearning for one, I found this delicious recipe. A melon mint sangria sounds really good […]

MORE THAN JUST A BOOK

Whether you actually enjoy reading or not, isn’t at question here, eye candy, on the other hand, is. The coffee table book has always been more than just a book, it’s a peek into your style, your interests, and personality. Not to mention, an aesthetic addition to your home. They’re essential in decorating as say, […]
