A VISIT TO THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL

I really don’t know why I didn’t write this post sooner!

A few months ago I finally had the chance to take Hayden somewhere she has been dying to go, The Beverly Hills Hotel. A weird request for a 6-year-old, right? Well, if you know Hayden, it really wasn’t. She is a budding movie buff and ever since watching Troop Beverly Hills she just had to go. So one day when we found ourselves in the area with nothing to do, I figured what better time to visit. Thanks to the help of my BFF, who just so happens to work there, I was able to make one of Hayden’s little dreams come true! Read more

A SERIOUS CRUSH ON PINKBLUSH

Believe me when I say I am no fashionista or style guru. In fact, as I write this I am in grey sweats and an over-sized sweater. Don’t get me wrong, I love shoes and clothes as much as the next girl but comfort and ease take priority in my life. Plus, with the holidays coming up I don’t necessarily have the extra funds to spend just on my closet.  Luckily, I may have found the perfect solution to my fashion dilemma. Read more

HOW TO GET OUT OF A RUT

 

I have been totally dropped the ball.  My social posts have dwindled and I can’t remember the last time I wrote a decent post. Especially considering I have my very own site now (insert palm to face emoji.) Granted there has been a lot going on in my life (a big move and even a new job) but I feel like I could have done a better job of staying focused on this dream of mine. Read more

NEW AND IMPROVED

Notice anything new?? MY DAY IN LA is finally live!! I finally took the plunge and created my very own domain and self-hosted site! Not going to lie, this whole process was not a walk in the park and at one point I was just so over it but I am so happy with how it turned out.  Read more

MY FAVORITE FALL TIME ACTIVITIES IN LA

School is finally back in session and fall is just around the corner! Although I will miss summer dearly, fall in Los Angeles is seriously the best time of year. I know we don’t get to experience the whole “changing of the seasons” bit, but during this time of year, we have the best weather ever. If you live here then you already know, but if you plan on visiting anytime soon I’d suggest coming during the months of September-November. Not only is the weather nearly always in the upper 70s but the crowds of summer have all gone. Plus, there a ton of fun fall activities. So today I am going to be sharing a few of my favorite things to do in LA during the fall.  Read more

THE SKINNY ON THE MUSEUM OF ICE CREAM

 

Like I said in my last post, a lot has been going on recently. Just a few weekends ago we had the chance to visit the Museum of Ice Cream while it was still in LA. Okay, so our visit was not by “chance.” I was literally on my computer the second they added additional tickets to this place because they completely sold out the first time around. If you didn’t know, the Museum of Ice Cream was the place to be this summer in LA and with all the hype surrounding it we just had to go. 

So, was it worth it??

Here is the skinny on the Museum of Ice Cream… Read more

A PHOTOSHOOT WITH PINKBLUSH

I’M BACK!

Sorry about my absence, it was not intentional. I had a bit of laptop drama. Luckily the problem was easily taken care of. 

Anyways, I feel like SO much has gone on since my last post (which was one of my most read posts to date! THANK YOU SO MUCH!) Most notably, my shoot with PinkBlush! CHECK US OUT HERE! I still can’t believe that it actually happened. I guess it’s not that big of a deal, but for me, it was a little dream come true! Read more

7 TIPS FOR DECORATING YOUR HOME ON A STRICT BUDGET

 

If you read my post 20 Things About Me, then you already know that I love interior design. For me, home decor is what truly makes a house a home. One of the best compliments I receive is when someone enters my home and comments on how welcoming/homey it feels. And while everyone’s design aesthetic is different, my goal when decorating is to make my home feel warm and welcoming. That may be attributed to the fact that I only fill my home with pieces I absolutely love. Read more

EXPLORING SPACE TRAVEL AND THE SPACE SHUTTLE ENDEAVOR AT THE CALIFORNIA SCIENCE CENTER

 

Currently sitting here downing a cup of coffee just trying to stay awake because this morning we were up bright and early. When I say “bright and early” I am talking like 6:30 am, which for this momma, may as well have been 4 am. I am not an early riser so for me to get up at that time it has to be for something special. Which was exactly the case because today we went to check out the Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center! Read more
