For the ones in your life looking to start the New Year by stepping up their fitness, pick up some new workout gear at Lorna Jane. Who wouldn’t love to have the new iPhone this year? Stop by the Apple Store to pick up an iPhone X and “say hello to the future.” Looking for something more personalized? Tumi is…
It's almost here - the day the past two months have been leading up to. I spent a delicious summer taking advantage of all the perks of being a full-time desert dweller. There were happy hours, food and drink specials, summer menus...you see the common thread here: overindulging. So I've tightened up the purse strings, and more importantly, my belt …
As all my friends know, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the opening of Hotel Paseo. Located right across from the Gardens parking structure, this mid-mod looking beaut has been building up right before my eyes over the past few years. I live right by El Paseo, so why am I so excited about a hotel right by my home? Well, first…
Once a year, my beautiful street gets just a little prettier. I take a short break from painting the town red and Paint El Paseo Pink, all for a great cause. This walk to fight cancer and raise much-needed funds for cancer care for people in the community happens every October on my favorite street. I love strolling past all…
I have the same philosophy toward fashion brands as I did about friendship in high school: be loyal to your besties and keep an open mind to everyone else. One brand I’ll always want to invite to my house for sleepovers so we can braid each other’s hair is Kate Spade. Since my first proud purchase in college (a red…
I’m a summer baby, but I crave the fall. It might have something to do with signaling an end to this sweltering heat, but I think it’s more my love for fall fashion. There’s something ingrained in me from my school days that fall is the time you do the year’s biggest shop (and if you know my certified shopaholic…
One of my life mottos is, “Brunch is always a good idea.” What better way to cap off a fun weekend than to have a late (and possibly slightly boozy) breakfast? It’s hard to get me off of El Paseo when there are so many great places to eat, right at my fingertips. Luckily, there are plenty of places to…
Everyone talks about bathing suit season, but they don’t talk about how to get to the point where you feel happy seeing yourself in said bathing suit. This winter/spring I admittedly overindulged in tasty food and beverages and was feeling slightly more hesitant than I normally am. Blame it on my line of work, blame it on my proximity to…
Two years ago, I wrote a Father’s Day blog about the most intriguing style icon in my life, my dearest dad. I must admit, he and the subsequent blog I wrote about him tickle me so much that I thought it would be a travesty to not republish it (yet again) this year, albeit with a few additions, and a…
…And it led me to Restaurant Week. Ok, I think the secret’s out. I love food. All food. I’m just as happy to eat messy street tacos from a food truck as I am to sit down to a formal steak and lobster dinner. So you can imagine my delight when that time of year rolls around. You know –…
