Last week I ditched my crop tops and bikinis for thermals and as many socks that would fit in my snow boots. Jumped on a plane and headed to Fairmont Château Frontenac in Quebec City!

Getting there was a little more difficult than expected. I had my first experience missing a connecting flight and having to spend the night at an airport hotel. So can I technically now say I've been to Toronto??

After a short night of sleep and a welcomed plate of French fries, we finally made it to Quebec City! When we pulled up to the Fairmont Château Frontenac it was just as breathtaking as the photos. Nestled in the middle of what I only could describe as a winter wonderland, I couldn't wait to experience the next few days at the hotel in the town.

Our first evening was the 125th Anniversary Gala for the Fairmont Château Frontenac. They really went above and beyond for the celebration. Five rooms each with their own theme and decor. It was like the best best maze I've ever been through. Obviously spent the most time in the dessert room. It was amazing to hear the rich history of the hotel while simultaneously eating the best food. 

The next day we hopped on a bus and toured the city. The hands down best part was visiting the Ice Hotel which yes, is an actual hotel that people sleep in overnight! 

I feel very lucky that I was able to experience the most photographed hotel in the world, attend Quebec's annual Carnival, and finally see snow this winter. 

Will be hard to top this one!

Kate Spade Eyewear in NYC

posted on: Friday, December 8, 2017

Last month I took a trip to New York with Kate Spade. It came smack dab in the middle of a crazy month but was absolutely a highlight for me. Who can resist NYC in the fall and in great company??

We stayed at an amazing hotel in Soho (my faaaav) and ate at some of the best restaurants in the city including While We Were Young which if you haven't seen it on your Instagram feed yet...who am I kidding you definitely have. We also stopped by the Kate Spade location on Madison Ave which completely blew me away. You guys...it's literally four stories tall and every inch is manicured to perfection. I did a little shopping which included the midi dress and crossbody bag that I am still obsessed with. 

I've always known Kate Spade for their iconic bag selections. But this trip I was introduced more to their other strength- eyewear!

If you guys haven't checked them out before I am here to tell you they are definitely worth a peek. What I really love about them is how they manage to be chic, trendy and classic all at the same time. Completely the aesthetic of girly-girl with an edge. Totally up my alley right now. 

My favorite on the trip was clearly the Jalena Sunglasses which I've linked down below. I've also included my other favorites from their current range. 

Stay tuned because I am not done yet! More Kate Spade Eyewear to come in the next month while I finish up the year and continue to travel. I am SO excited.

Après Workout With UGG

posted on: Wednesday, November 22, 2017

The holiday season is ON. I love this time of year but it definitely adds a lot more bustle to my usual daily hustle. Because of the added stress (and through the roof calorie intake) I make it a point to work out more and find ways to decompress. Après workout or after a long day of running around the city I think it's so important to find some much needed "me" time. I've partnered up with UGG and SIX:02 to show you just that.

Los Angeles has no shortage of beautiful museums, palm tree lined streets, and coffee/juice/matcha shops galore. The weather is undeniable beautiful all year round here so I feel incredibly lucky to be able to still walk around and take it all in without getting frost bite. It's the little things, you know?

I have will forever be an UGG girl. I've been wearing them religiously since I was a teen and I love how they've expanded their collection with everything from the classics, to lace up boots, to loafers. 

I keep a tall pair at home for around the house and this Classic Mini Crushed Velvet pair in my car to wear after a workout class or hike. A matcha latte or juice from Naturewell usually follows soon after that. How very LA of me.

What are your favorite ways to wind down after a workout or long day? Tips and tricks are much appreciated!

Me Undies: The Everyday Collection

posted on: Thursday, November 2, 2017

I was introduced to Me Undies a few years ago when I got a pair of underwear in the mail with my Instagram handle stitched on it no less! It was INSTANT love when it made undies to skin contact. 

You're probably wondering why and to put it simply, it's literally feel good underwear. Me Undies is always incredibly soft and in flattering cuts that form to your body. I never have any issues with extra fabric or uncomfortable seams. These are problems I run into constantly so when I find a brand that checks all the boxes, I'm a customer for life. 

So it comes as no surprise that I was over the moon excited when I saw that they came out with the Everyday Collection. It's made up of underwear and bralettes you need for every day wear that are simple, elegant, and most of all flattering. 

I kid you not, I have the "No Show Thong" in a dozen pairs. I wasn't kidding when I said I get hooked!! 

So much love for this brand and I have no doubts you ladies (and gentleman if you're out there) will love it too if you don't already.

What do you ladies look for in underwear? Would love to know if you have struggled in the past like I have!

Me Undies: Low Scoop Bralette

Living Room Update With Joss & Main

posted on: Thursday, September 21, 2017

I've been living in my apartment for over 2 years now which in my world is some kind of new world record. I've always bounced around every year or so but this place has really stuck! Even though I love my little nest I needed to switch things up. 

The task was a bit daunting but I had a friend refer me to Joss & Main. I was instantly hooked! I did a lot of online shopping and they by far had the best prices and selection compared to their competitors. I even found a lot of the same exact pieces on other sites and Joss & Main always had the better price!!

I knew I wanted grey, whites, wood and gold accents. My first purchase was the Erica Sofa. I wanted something mid-century style and it also was a great compromise with my boyfriend. He wasn't going for my pink velvet idea. Compromise people!! We also agreed on the accent chair which also would look amazing around a dining table if you have the space for it.

From there I knew I needed a massive rug to take over the entire area and add texture against the wood floors so I went for the 8x10 size. You've probably seen this Robyn Rug a lot and for good reason- IT IS AMAZING. I love the way it looks and bonus provides a fuzzy, soft surface for barefoot Netflix and chill sessions. 

When it comes to looking for an entertainment center I recommend looking for buffets/sideboards as an alternative to a traditional TV console. They are chic but also functional with so much storage. I fell in love with the Rochelle Sideboard!

I've linked the pieces and similar one's down below. So excited to keep adding to my new space with art and lighting.

To be continued!
