I have been incorporating a few new items into my beauty routine, as well as a fashion item. I have been loving using natural products with good ingredients that deliver the results I am looking for. After trying these products for a few weeks, Its safe to say I see a longterm relationship in our future. I have been incorporating a few new items into my beauty routine, as well as a fashion item.
Los Angeles jumps from cool temperatures to hot overnight and I find myself going from layers to bare legs. A spring clean was required to store away heavy sweaters, puffer coats, and cold weather accessories and alas a few new pieces worked their way into my closet.
This last weekend I decided to tackle making pasta. It has been something I have always wanted to do and after spending a day of trial and error, I made a batch of raviolis! Upon reflection, maybe I should have started with spaghetti, but I had my mind set on a spring pasta for Easter.
It's the second day of spring and there is a blizzard on the east coast and rain on the west coast! But that didn't stop us from snapping a few quick photos. As we finally creep out of hibernation mode, I like taking the time to streamline EVERYTHING especially when it comes to clothes.
I have never been much of a print girl, unless you count the butterfly dress I wore as a 7 year old until it was falling apart at the seams one summer. I have always found neutrals suited me best, until I started enjoying some of the new modern florals that have been popping up in the design world lately.
The thing I find most stressful about blogging is the pressure to always be coming up with new content. Some months I have a constant stream of ideas, while others I feel uninspired. Here a few things I do when I am in a creative rut.
The weather is freezing in Los Angeles aka under 60 degrees! Angelenos are bundled up. But I needed a bit of a pick-me-up to beat that mid-winter slump, hence pink! For some reason, I find I shy away from feminine colors, but there is something chic and modern about a classic pale pink coat.
I am feeling that little bit of buzz for Spring in the air! It is actually "cold" in Los Angeles and has even been cooler here than East Coast temperatures this past week. But there is nothing like that first of hint of spring: sweet peas and lilacs, artichokes and asparagus at the farmers market. Bring it on!
The afternoon slump. More coffee, maybe something sweet? The instant gratification that comes from that temporary caffeine buzz or sugar rush. I make the opposite error of eating nothing between meals and come dinner time, hangry is an understatement.
A quick trip to New York last week was just what the doctor ordered. The weather was cool at first, but by the end of the week warmed up to 53 degrees and tough New Yorkers were barely wearing coats.
