I love an overly distressed pair of jeans, but sometimes a minimal amount of distressing at the knee is just so chic. It shows the perfect amount of skin. Here are a few images that are inspiring my next DIY. Stay tuned!
Being a California girl, there is always a little touch of boho to my look. I have beach waves in my hair almost everyday of the year and am convinced that worn in black boots go with just about everything. My current favorite boho accessory is a silver statement necklace. Here I teach you how to make one yourself to add to any outfit for the perfect boho chic feel.
Being so busy at work and spending so much time moving and settling into my new place, I’ve just realized that the end of summer is here. I’ve teamed up with Target® to share my favorite end of summer activity, which is swimming on a sunny afternoon. It’s not only great cardio, but also so much fun! Now that there’s a pool where I live, I have to take advantage. If I'm in the pool with my girlfriends, I like to tread water while we're chatting, which burns 50 calories every 5 minutes. You can do this by simply, moving your arms horizontally and moving your legs in a circle, while staying afloat. So easy! If I'm on alone in the pool, I love to swim laps and try different types of strokes. A breast stroke is great for your chest and thighs, while the butterfly works out your chest and abs. What are your favorite pool workouts? Can’t wait to throw a bbq and pool party with friends while it's still hot in LA.
I am such a big ice cream fan. I basically could eat it anytime of the day, everyday. Because it is not the healthiest dessert option, I have been on the hunt for a healthy alternative. This recipe for Peach Yogurt Popsicles is not only delicious, but so easy to follow. You can find me indulging in these sweet treats while savoring the last bits of the the hot weather around LA.

Two years ago, I moved to Long Beach and although I had an amazing time exploring a new area, I really missed LA. So when I accepted a design position at Lover's + Friends, it was a great opportunity to move back to LA and be closer to my new job. This loft in Little Tokyo was actually the first place I viewed during my search, and it instantly felt like home. I fell in love with the high ceilings, the industrial character, and the tall windows. After moving in a little under two months ago, I have been on Pinterest and home decor blogs looking for the perfect inspiration. I have partnered with Overstock.com to help bring the inspiration into reality. I love their site and selection because you can find really chic pieces for affordable prices. My favorite combination! More about each piece after the break. Also, I am so excited to share these photos of my home by the talented photographer, Jenna Bechtholt. She did a wonderful job at capturing my space.
