Fourth of July get-together

Last week my boyfriend and I decided to have a Fourth of July get-together at our apartment in Downtown Los Angeles. The idea was to invite our friends over for an evening gathering with food, drinks, music, and of course fireworks! Setting the Summer Vibe  I wanted to set up a pretty holiday display so I considered my centerpiece options. I decided on a white ceramic pineapple cookie jar that goes great with my kitchen table and a silver placement that resembled nautical rope, but with an elegant twist. I added seashells around the centerpiece to carry out the summer vibe. Pineapple cookie jar: Amazon |Read More →

Trip to Puerto Vallarta

I recently wrote an article about how to plan a spur-of-the-moment trip, which was based on preparing for my trip to Puerto Vallarta. I spent 9 days in Mexico, so you as you can imagine, I did and saw a lot of amazing things. I had so many trip-of-a-lifetime experiences, from dining on a deserted island, to exploring a brightly colored beach town, to tasting amazing cuisine–every second of this trip was a memorable one. I wondered how I would be able to include everything in one blog post so I decided to write about my trip highlights along with some history of this amazingRead More →

summer beach essentials

Whether I’m headed to a local beach here in Los Angeles County, or preparing for an exotic vacation somewhere far away, my summer beach essentials help me to have the perfect day. I recently vacationed in Puerto Vallarta, and before I left I started to think about what I would need. Being a lover of street style, this cover up was the first item on my list. The mesh material helped to keep me cool in the hot and humid 90+ degree days. I love wearing white in the summer as it shows off my tan. I then worked the rest of my outfit aroundRead More →

15 things i can't live without

Before I started to write this article, I began to think about all the different elements we use in our everyday lives. How our age, job, location, and taste can have a huge impact on our daily necessities. I came up with a list of 15 things I can’t live without. Not a day goes by when I don’t somehow use or need all of these; from my MacBook Pro, to the lipgloss I trust to keep my lips moisturized, and everything in between. Some of the items on my list, like fresh flowers or my favorite candle are more frivolous, but they are thingsRead More →
