Breakfast at Toast

I'ce received many sweet comments and emails about my new layout...I wish I could take credit for it but it is all Miss Danielle Moss of Breakfast at Toast and The Everygirl.

Not to mention she was a doll to work with, had it done so fast, and is from the valley at one point(woooo!), her amazing Chicago apartment was featured last week in RUE magazine!





Check out her blog and her templates if you are in the market!

Finally Found my Bar Cart!




I picked up my 75.00 Craigslist find yesterday(pictures to come next week!) and I am so glad I was patient and waited for something I love and a price that didn't kill me. I cannot wait to style it similar to the carts above with pretty glasses and essentials and have friends over for a cocktail!

First purchase on the list, this adorable ice bucket-on sale!

So this weekend was awesome

So, by now I'm sure you all have seen highlights and know we have a little super bowl repeat on our hands. Much respect to the ninere, their fans, and the undercover cops. Oh did i mention these may have been the best seats ever?!?! Such an amazing experience, though I don't know if I have the stomach to go to a playoff game ever again!

Now it's 430 and were in a cab to the airport so I can make it to work

Look for Less: J. Crew Ballet Flats

This look for less is thank to Lindsay of The Pursuit of Style( who I am sooooo glad is back to blogging!)

These fabulous J. Crew Classic leather ballet flats are 125.00



Topshop Ballet Pumps..32.00

There are obviously differences-ie leather vs not, but when you're buying hot pink flats, I think 32.00 is just in my price range

A Little Wisdom from Frank Sinatra


I may sound old-fashioned, but I want to think all women should be treated like I want my wife, daughters, and granddaughters to be treated. I notice today that good manners—like standing up when a woman enters the room, helping a woman with her coat, letting her enter an elevator first, taking her arm to cross the street—are sometimes considered unnecessary or a throwback. These are habits I could never break, nor would I want to. I realize today a lot more women are taking care of themselves than in the past, but no woman is offended by politeness.

Men of Los Angeles....take note

Crock Pot Cooking


So, do I need a crockpot. Everyone keeps on swearing it is the best thing to happen to cooking, and my mom has one that she's never used. What do you ladies think? I have some receipes pinned from pinterest, but wondering if I will really use it or just have it use up storage

These Earings are Bananas


I'm loving these Luxe Rachel Zoe for QVC tassel earrings. They come in gold, silver, and rosegold and are under 30.00 with shipping. Instant glam to any outfit!

Color Bug

I saw this on twitter, it is a product called color bug, and gives you the fabulous dip dye tips in fun color such as pink, purple, and peach. I sent an email to Kelly who sells it in her salon, and the pink arrived and I am excited to try it out! If you want it I really recommend going through her, because it is super difficult to find online.



I think it will be fun for a casual night out but add some glam. I really wanted peach a la Lauren Conrad, but don't think it will show on brown hair

Is this something you would try..or am I crazy?

Sous Style


Over the weekend I discovered the fabulous blog Sous Style, by Pippa Lord an editor a Elle.; a food and entertaining blog that is one part the Coveteur, One part into the gloss, and one part awesome photography. It looks into the kitchen and homes of fabulous fashionistas, and almost doesn't make me feel bad they eat fried egg sandwhiches.






Their Manifesto is :


We want to make our houses into home; but we're not necessarily married with two kids and a mortgage.
Our "houses" may just be apartments or rooms we rent, but they are spaces we call our own.
We plan a dinner with the same attention to style and detail we put into our daily outfits.
We consider ourselves fashionable, yet our diets aren't based on coffee and cigarettes.
Our homes aren't necessarily flawless, matching, precious, or proper.
We make mistakes, spill things, add too much salt, and sometimes eat on the run.
We love men who cook and women who eat-and vice versa!
We're a perpetual work in progress
We don't know all the answers but we are curious to find out
We believe in the imperfect perfect

Ready to plan a little dinner soirre now!

The Most Amazing Dress Ever


If I could only buy one item in 2012, it would be this Parker dress. Can you say perfect for summertime dinner and drinks, or dancing in Vegas, or....

The opportunities are endless



Shopbop also carries this two-in-one version, which I would also die over, and seems maybe a bit more practical?


Decisions, decisions

(or..maybe just pray that RTR gets it on their website)
