With each change of seasons I love to switch up the decor around the house. This spring’s wildflower super bloom and all the beautiful colors exploding from the earth have really made my heart sing - it’s reinforced my urge to incorporate more color into our neutral living room! I’ve been wanting to invest in a vintage Moroccan rug for years now, and I knew a colorful one would bring the room to life in a fabulous way. I actually started my rug search a few months ago but nothing had been the right size, colors, pattern, or price.Read More
Eddie and I headed over to Greystone Mansion Easter morning to do a little exploring before getting together with family. It’s a property I’ve never visited before and it was such a beautiful day, I knew it would make for a lovely holiday outing. The estate is owned by the city of Beverly Hills and the grounds are open to the public daily - no fee for parking or admission! It’s such a hidden gem, tucked away in the hills with a breathtaking view of the city. We didn’t explore inside the mansion itself as it’s is only open during special programs and events, but I hope to take a peek inside at some point in the future. The grounds alone are worth a viz though!Read More
Thank you to The Wigwam for hosting my stay. All opinions are my own - as always!
I finally made it to Arizona for the first time ever! I’ve been craving a getaway to this cactus-filled wonderland, and now I can finally check it off my bucket list. My stay at The Wigwam was an absolute dream, filled with yummy food & drinks, new experiences, and total relaxation. The property is celebrating the 90th Anniversary of its guest ranch, and it was such a pleasure to learn the history of this Arizona treasure. Located in the town of Litchfield Park just 20 miles outside of Phoenix, the weather was absolutely perfect during my stay and the citrus scent of the orange trees that cover the grounds was amazing aromatherapy. I want to share with you some of my fave parts of the trip, as well as photos of the beautiful resort - I honestly was in heaven, as I’m sure you could imagine!Read More
California has had a pretty crazy year what with the fires, flooding, and extra rainy winter. But the result of all that is something truly spectacular - a beautiful wildflower super bloom. Right now throughout Southern California there’s a floral explosion happening! Hills, deserts, and canyons are covered in beautiful poppies. It really is magical!Read More
When my dear friend Lindsay Hollinger of Casa Joshua Tree told me she had bought a second house to turn into a full time Airbnb, I knew we were in for some interior magic y’all. Together with her bff and business partner James Burial, they renovated and transformed this 1,200 square foot 3 bedroom home into the ultimate desert retreat, fondly named #ThatDesertHouse. Lindsay and James spent 6 months on renovations and did most of the work themselves - all the time, energy, and love they put into the space really shows.Read More

I’ve found if I’m ever a bit stressed or feeling overwhelmed with work, a simple walk outside in nature really helps to clear my mind and make me happy. I’m the sort of person whose mood is very much affected by my environment and what’s around me at any given moment. Whether it’s in a crowded grocery store, shopping mall, or sidewalk with people in a hurry and brushing past, or the daily LA traffic with drivers honking their horns, constantly cutting you off - I very easily become stressed and anxious in these sort of conditions. I wish I wasn’t so affected by external forces! But a bit of nature always does the trick to elevate my mood, calm me down, and simply reset. Away from cars, crowds, loud noises - just grass, trees, plants, and wildlife to keep you company.Read More
If you’re in the mood for a quaint lil California getaway filled with delish food, gem-filled antique shops, and amaze wines, Los Alamos is for you. A sweet, tiny town in Santa Barbara county with an Old West rancher vibe, the majority of shops and restaurants cover a 3 block stretch on the main road of Bell Street. You could easily explore everything in one day, but I’d recommend taking it slow and soaking in all the goodness - unwind and take your time! I was looking to do just that, and since Eddie had to work this particular weekend, I decided to take a little solo trip and explore the town by myself. Where I stayed, ate, drank, and shopped below!Read More
