Pretty New Flowers

There is a cute little flower shop a few blocks from my house called Toyo Florist. The shop is actually tucked away behind a hardware store! It's a hidden gem and I'm so happy I discovered it. I love to go and pick out fresh flowers for around the house. Like these...

Next time you are on the east side of L.A., check them out!

Midi Rings, Oranges, and Sailing

What do Midi Rings, Oranges, and Sailing have in common you might ask? They are all part of my adventures working with Samanca Jewelry. I have so much fun taking pictures and "hand modeling" for them. There are just too many fun pics to post here, you have to visit their Instagram to see them all... BUT here are a few of my recent favorites...

Turn Down For What

I just can't get enough of the DJ Snake & Lil Jon "Turn Down For What" video. It's bizarre, unexpected, and totally hilarious and I highly recommend watching it...

The Parker Palm Springs

I'm a little bit obsessed with The Parker hotel in Palm Spring. It's the perfect getaway! I love to go there during the week when it's quiet and just do nothing but read in a hammock and lay by the pool. The decor is by Jonathan Adler and it makes me want to redecorate my home. He had so much fun with color, as well as mixing and matching different shapes and silhouettes. I find it so inspiring! The hotel grounds are also very unique. There are a few low buildings connected by dirt pathways lined with lush greenery. It is such a magical place! I was just there and I can't wait until my next visit... I wish that I could live there!

In the meantime, I'm just going to stare at these images from my last visit and wish I was there right now ...

My kind of green for St. Patrick's Day

Now this is my kind of green...

How great is this little outdoor space? I love to sit there and read during my stays at The Parker in Palm Springs. It's such a magical place! The perfect touch of green for St. Patrick's Day. Hope everyone is having a great Monday... Happy St. Patrick's Day!
