Yeah Bra

Hi!! I hope you all had a great long weekend and that your week is off to a great start! I got some shopping in on Saturday and it was sooo needed because I was low on some basic essentials like bras and undies that I've gone far too long without buying. Sometimes I focus on the bigger purchases like a great bag or shoes and let the little things fall by the wayside because I'd rather spend the money elsewhere. But doing laundry 5x's per week because I have one sports bra and one strapless bra was getting pretty annoying so I headed over to Nordstrom to check out the half yearly sale and I kind of went bra crazy! Bras are one of those things I will wear into the ground before replacing because I find my...

Backless Date Night

Happy Friday everyone!! I'm sooo ready for the weekend after what has been a super busy and interesting week. There has been major construction on our street re-doing the roads in our area for months and months. It's like a major city project. So I was getting ready for a meeting at Suja the other morning and all of a sudden water just began flooding the downstairs floor of our house! From the top of the stairs I could see the wet floor and I just knew it wasn't good. I ran down the stairs and started stepping through the water to investigate what was up before realizing it was SEWER water because the workers hit a wrong pipe! AHHHHHH!!! Boyfriend was on a loooooong bike ride, not to return for 4 hours so we called a plumber/water damage person, I went...

My Top 5 Metabolism Boosters

  Greetings on this glorious Monday morning! I hope you guys had wonderful weekends!! Today's post is all about metabolism because I think there's a big misconception that your metabolism is this absolute, pre-decided thing that you're stuck with you. There is definitely a genetic component to a persons default metabolic rate, however there's actually quite a bit we can do to increase our burn rate and help our bodies hum at their highest level. One big slower of metabolism is processed, chemically foods because your body can't digest them the way it's meant to and use them for fuel so they clogs up the body and interfere with its chemical processes which is really what metabolism is. When your body simply can't burn a food even if it wants to because it's so foreign and grossy, it will get stored as waste...

CABO!

Hi guys!! I'm back from Cabo!!! We had SUCH an amazing few days and it was so nice to get away and have some quality time with the boy in beautiful beachy weather without anywhere to be. Sometimes a mid-week adventure just kinda re-invigorates you and brings a fresh gust of inspiration and rewenewal to your life, which I love! Little vacations like this remind me not to take everything so seriously and enjoy life even during chaos and business. I came home last night feeling happy, calm, and ready to dive headfirst into new projects, write tons of ideas down, and put my creative energy in productive places.

We stayed at the Resort at San Pedregal which was stunning and located right on the beach! The highlight of the property was the spa, with treatment rooms perched amid a salt water...

Mexican Vibes

Hola from Cabo!! I'm currently kicked back by a fire pit overlooking the ocean feeling so stoked for a few days of R+R with my gorgeous man cake supreme! I've been running around a ton lately, so I'm really looking forward to yoga-ing, beach lounging, spa-ing, and soaking up the warm Mexican sun with my fave human. I spent most of the weekend at Rancho Valencia where I wore this outfit on Saturday, and the resort has such a Mexican hacienda vibe that totally put me in early vacay mode! A good chambray shirt has a rugged, desert feel that I love, so I packed this outfit for our trip along with Acacia and Mikoh bikinis, this cover up, these ripped jean shorts, this breezy dress, and these tan suede fringe sandals....

Weekend + Lately!

Hola!! Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope you're all having a fab week so far! It's time for a weekend post to recap you on the latest happenings over here and I'll also fill you in on the last couple days of this week...

I had a really fun weekend despite the fact that I was sniffling my way through it thanks to a little sinus infection I've been fighting. On Saturday we went to a super beautiful wedding for my friends Kori and Charlie and it was beyond gorge! Kori is like a detail queen and every little thing was perfection. The program included a map of their relationship all over the country (where they met, first kissed, said I love you, etc.) and the music was so not typical wedding ugh (The Shins on violin was my fave). Then on Sunday, boyfriend...

Sunrise Wellness Weekend

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to host a wellness weekend on behalf of Suja as part of Target's Made to Matter initiative, and it was such an amazing experience! To give you some background, Target has handpicked 31 better for you and better for the world products from the natural space and beyond to feature in their stores, making them easily accessible and affordable for their consumers. We are so thrilled Suja is part of Made to Matter because we want organic, cold-pressed, non-GMO, unheated juices to be available to EVERYONE. We are the only organic, cold pressed, non-GMO juice available under $5 on shelves and that is soooo exciting because it shows the desire and demand for healthier products and an important shift that's happening in the consumer product space! We hosted the weekend with...

Light As a Feather

Hi babies!!!! I've missed you guys! I spent the most amazing and unforgettable weekend in SF (recap is next post) hosting some incredible people for a special collab I'll tell you all about in my recap! I decided not to blog when I was there and soak up everyone's beautiful presence and the intimate nature of the gathering. I got back Sunday late afternoon to a sunny San Diego after being in freezing cold, rainy SF, but I guess it had been raining in San Diego all weekend too! However, you'd never know because this week has been really toasty and the sun is out full force. When it's really warm and summery, I love wearing lighter than air pieces made of soft, breezy fabrics. This romper is just that and I've already mentally packed it for Cabo in a couple weeks because it's the perfect...

Superfood Latte

Hi everyone - Happy Friday!! I'm currently at the airport headed to SF for a fun wellness weekend with some incredible people, but I won't lie..I'm dragging a bit. Yes, sometimes I drag and when that happens I love nothing more than a delish cup of coffee. I stopped drinking coffee for a while because I sort of lost my taste for it! To give you a little background of my coffee history, I've never been in the strong camp that coffee is bad for you and actually think it's a great source of antioxidants. I also think a little caffeine can actually be a great thing for some people. Note, I said "a little". I am NOT a fan of guzzling more than 2-3 cups per day until you're shaking/heart palpitating and I'm SUPER NOT a fan of sugary, syrupy, cow milky, aspartamey "coffee drinks". I...
