Emmys Best Dressed ATG FINAL

Emmys Best Dressed ATG FINAL

Admittedly, I didn’t watch the Emmys this past Monday night. It certainly didn’t help that my Facebook newsfeed went crazy as the winners were announced well before the west coast broadcast anyway. (Gotta love that 3-hour delay.)

I am somewhat proud to gloat that I did the right thing and went to yoga class as planned. (It’s much more likely I’d be closer to channeling some of the best bodies…

Highlights or 5 Things I Learned This Week: @FemaleBloggerRT @TheBlogGuideRT #lbloggers #happyfriday #RichHill

5 completely random things I learned this week…

Highlights Header

1. Unfortunately, the “best iced latte in America” is overrated.

As evidenced from the image above, you can see that I’ve been up to my ol’ shenanigans again on the latte front. I told you I’d be back after my first visit to Go Get Em Tiger (yes, that’s the coffee bar’s name) to say hello again to the current reining champion of the “best iced…

Inspired. And my thoughts on grace. @FemaleBloggerRT @TheBlogGuideRT #lbloggers #inspiration #wordsofwisdom


A mid-week pause for some soul encouragement.

But first, a word.

I came across the quote above yesterday. Reading it immediately solidified something for me when thinking about labels, paths, and women.

It’s no secret that women are more likely to encounter the struggle of walking the fine line between the perception of assertiveness and bitchiness, something most men presumably don’t think…

What I’m Lovin’ Right Now

What I’m Lovin’ Right Now :: #lbloggers #bbloggers @FemaleBloggerRT @MondayBlogs @TheBlogGuideRT


Happy Monday! As we start a new week, I’m determined to get things off on the right foot after such an exhausting one last week. As such, I’m looking to things that are making me smile, and smile big. It’s in the little things: sidewalks reminding us to be awesome (#1) or timely words (#7). It’s in the new: changing up that yummy, but very predictable strawberry smoothie at breakfast for…

{Finally, my toes are in the sand. It’s beginning to feel a lot like summer.}

Between you and me, I’ve had better weeks. Not that anything in particular happened to me personally that should make me say this. There’s just something in the air as of late that seems to be hitting nearly everyone around me, creating this level of….what…exhaustion, perhaps?  Truth be told, I’ve been dragging much of…

Words That Gave Me Pause

Words That Gave Me Pause #lbloggers @FemaleBloggerRT @TheBlogGuideRT #inspiration #thedailylove

Happiness is the settling of the soul into its most appropriate spot.― Aristotle 4

This week took a nose dive with everything that’s been going on in the press as of late and it’s creating much discussion about the severity of depression and addiction. I recently signed up for The Daily Love email after stumbling across Mastin Kipp on Mastin calls his blog “a dose of love” and the message he spreads “a free daily e-multivitamin for the soul.” I can get behind that.

Go Get Em Tiger!

Go Get Em Tiger! #LA #LarchmontBlvd #Coffee #GGET

Go Get Em Exterior ATG FINAL

Where: Go Get Em Tiger
Location: 230 North Larchmont Boulevard
Cost: pricey

Perhaps this is a clear sign that I’ve had entirely too much sunshine in my native lifetime spent in the City of Angels, but I do enjoy the fun, albeit cliché, “play on words” trend when frequenting a local spot. There’s something just so much more enticing about saying “hey, let’s go grab a treat at Sprinkles” rather…

Oh, Let’s Romp

Oh, Let’s Romp! #fashion #fbloggers #lbloggers @FemaleBloggerRT @TheBlogGuideRT



{Click image to enlarge.}

Similar to my now not so secret affection for overalls, the return of the romper is making me quite giddy. Perhaps it’s because it channels the flair of a dress without the full commitment. And when you find the right fit, there’s an undeniable flirtiness while saluting pure comfort that I find particularly appealing. The no-effort-required attribute make it the…

Deep Fried Everything: The Orange County Fair

Deep Fried Everything: The Orange County Fair @FemaleBloggerRT #ocfair #theoc #lacountyfair



Where: The Orange County Fair
Location: 88 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa
Cost: $3.00 (before 11:00am); $12.00 general admission

There are a few rituals that I have yet to conquer to truly make it feel like summer. At the top of that list, spending a lazy day at the beach with a good book. Luckily, that’s on the agenda this weekend!

It wasn’t until I found myself at the Orange County Fair a few weekends…

Two Years.

Today marks my 2 year blogoversary and I’m celebratin’ BIG! @FemaleBloggerRT #bloggers @TheBlogGuideRT

2yr_Blogoversary_ATG FINAL

Today marks my 2 year blogoversary! And while the 2nd year often has a nasty reputation when it comes to human development, dubbed the “terrible twos,” I’ve found that with blogging this is quite the opposite when it comes to creative life development.  There’s nothing terrible about your 2nd year in the blogosphere. You only get better, so it only gets better! And when you do stumble along the…
