ISABEL MARANT BLANKET COAT

May 23, 2016


The one month a year I get to complain about LA weather is finally upon us! Well technically speaking, I should never complain about the weather in LA, but after a relatively warm April, going back to wearing jackets and jeans in May feels a bit strange! And the funny thing is that though it happens every year, somehow I am always surprised. Usually, I store my winter/fall pieces right after I come back from Paris Fashion Week in February, settle quite comfortably into my spring/summer wardrobe and decide that we'll be basking in warmth and sunshine until roughly early November ( definitely wishful thinking on my part ). And than "June Gloom" happens, or in this case "May Meh" which is a nickname Emil and I came up with for the rainy, gloomy weather we've been enjoying lately!


POSTCARDS FROM PARADISE // PALM SPRINGS

May 22, 2016


Good morning and happy Sunday, everyone! How is your weekend going so far? I wanted to say a quick hi and share a few images from our recent mini vacation in Palm Springs. Though we've been spending quite a bit of time here lately, there is just something about Palms Springs that makes me want to come back again and again! Seriously! No matter how often we go, I never get tired of coming here! What about you guys? What is the one place you never get tired of visiting?


VIVALUXURY x GOLD PHILOSOPHY

May 19, 2016


The first time I came across Gold Philosophy jewels was probably a little less than 2 years ago. It was late at night, and I was indulging in a bit of on-line shopping, otherwise known as retail therapy, after a very long and exhausting day. On that particular occasion, and though it's been a while I remember it quite vividly, I was on a quest to find a beautiful pair of pearl earrings I spotted in a magazine add somewhere. After searching for a while, I finally came across Gold Philosophy web page and there they were, starring right at me, even more beautiful and delicate than I remembered! As I started to browse the rest of the website, I kept finding more and more pieces I absolutely loved!


MY MORNING SKIN-CARE ROUTINE

May 17, 2016


When it comes to skincare, the two words I pretty much live by is maintenance and prevention. It's easier to take preamptive measures than try and a problem once it occurs, don't you think? I certainly have my share of regrets when it comes to taking care of my skin. I wish I started using SPF products earlier, I wish I ate a little better and drank more water in college, I wish I remembered to take my make up off every night, if I did, I would've had to deal with sun spots on my nose, enlarged pores and blackheads later. But of course there is really no point of harboring regrets. The best you can do is learn your lessons and try and do better in the future.


MINI MINT

May 15, 2016

Good morning and happy Sunday, everyone! Just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of one of my favorite dresses at the moment! Love absolutely everything about it, from very subtle mint color, to bell cuffs, square neckline and casual silhouette! Fact that it's made from easy, breezy eyelet, doesn't hurt either!:)


MY JEWELRY STACKS: DAY VS NIGHT

May 13, 2016


Since I'm a huge jewelry addict, a look feels incomplete to me unless I add a bit of sparkle. Well, a lot of sparkle actually, because layering and stacking is what it's all about! The more, the merrier - that's what I always say! I wear a lot of jewelry with all my looks, but the way I combine pieces differs depending on my outfit and occasion.  And so today, I've partnered with PANDORA Jewelry, one of my favorite jewelry brands, to talk to you a little bit about how I stack jewelry for three types of looks: dressy, business and casual.


OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS: DAY VS NIGHT

May 12, 2016


When it comes to travel, to say that Emil and I are spontaneous, is to say nothing at all! It's not that we dislike making plans in general, but with our schedule being as unpredictable as it is, it's hard to anticipate what tomorrow will bring, let alone plan something weeks in advance. So in our house, the trip planning process sounds a lot like this: "Hey babe, how would you feel about going to Santa Barbara tomorrow?" Well, babe feel really good about going to Santa Barbara on any day, which is what I would say right before I start frantically packing, trying to fit way too many shoes in what seems to be a tiny little carryall!
