This weekend was perfect, from the activities to the weather. Saturday was spent all day in Malibu enjoying the beautiful views and soaking in some much needed sun. With a relaxing at home movie night to finish the day. Sunday was a family outing to a museum exhibit to see Faberge eggs and get my dad a “stamp” for his president’s museum passport at the Nixon. Happy Monday everyone. xxxooo


Fashion Fridays

When I’m traveling I hate the typical pairing of jeans and sneakers (tourist attire 101). For the record I only wear “sneakers” when I go to the gym. My travel buddy and I agreed 100% on this issue. So our traveling wardrobe was a little nicer. These particular photos are from our champagne tasting tour in France. Everything I had bought before the trip except for the scarf which we found in the best Paris flea market the day before. Hope ya’ll have a great weekend! xxxooo

Olympic Pride

Typically I am not an olympic fan. There are only a few sports I truly enjoy watching and the majority of those for the olympics aren’t on the list. However, I just got back from London and saw a lot of the setting up for this worldwide event. (i.e. Stonehenge has these lighting contraptions around it for the opening ceremonies). So I am planning a small get together with friends to relive all that I saw and repeat “I’ve been there” till they become annoyed.

Must have Mondays: Cheers

When events like the Aurora movie theater shooting occur, it really puts things into perspective. It’s hard to express in words, but those events hit me hard. My family and I are huge movie fans, we go to the theaters once a week on average, its like an extension of our home. I’m not a big midnight showing person, but I was definitely excited and planning on seeing The Dark Knight Rises. Out of respect and overall sadness for the current events I put it off. All my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and everyone affected by this. This Monday, try not to forget and to pray. xxxooo

Hot days require little clothing with light fabrics. Now when walking around a city, you want to not look like a tourist. So your challenge is set. This light weight, airy dress seemed to be the perfect match. Combined with rose gold sandals, a cross body bag, and simple jewelry the outfit was exactly like that day in Venice…perfect!
