Paris Travel Diary | Part I

It’s been the BEST birthday month ever having just returned from our luxuriously decadent 15-day honeymoon just last week! We spent the first leg of our trip in the picturesque French Riviera, followed by 5 days in Amsterdam, and finally ended in my absolute FAVE city in the world… Paris!

Vacation Vibes

Happy 1st Day of Summer y’all!
So excited to announce that we’re leaving for our honeymoon this weekend woOoHoOoo!!!

It’s only taken us a mere 6 months after getting hitched back in January to plan this vacation and while I toyed with tropical locales (for him), cultural foodie destinations (for me), we finally settled on the best of both worlds… Europe here we come!

Food Porn Friday | The Strand House | Manhattan Beach

Happy Friday luvahs!!!  
It’s been birthday after birthday, gathering with my girls and eating up a storm all over SoCal.  I love that we make an effort to not only celebrate in style, but to find new and notable restaurants with a little more to them than just fine dining.  Caitlin’s birthday took us down to the Strand House in Manhattan Beach, where libations overflowed into beautiful ocean views and dinner took us right into after hours dancing. 
Here’s what’s on the menu today:

Trend Spotting | Tropical Palm Prints

Having been raised in Southern California since I was 5 years old, I’ve grown quite accustomed to seeing towering palm trees every which way I turn.  So it was no surprise that my entire courtyard, literally covered in miniature palms, completely sold the house for me.  Something about the rich vibrant color and organic shapes of the oversized leaves just screams retro glamour!
