These are a few of my {current} favorite things.

Pores No More


I have never been the girl with good skin.  Forever oily with big pores… This stuff has changed my life. It completely smooths out my complexion and almost gives it an airbrushed finish.  I highly recommend if you have similar issues.

Capri Blue Candles


The best of the best!  The scents are not overwhelming but refreshing and long lasting.  Volcano and Rain are my faves.

Stuart Weitzman Wedges


The perfect summer sandal that I cannot seem to take off my feet because they are so comfy!  Obsessed.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow


This stuff is awesome.  If you are like me and struggling to grow in your brows after years of waxing and tweezing, then this product is your savior.  It instantly makes my brows look full and thick which is totally the brow trend right now, in case you didn’t know ;).  Ladies leave those brows alone… skinny, thin brows are a thing of the past.

a day in the ‘bu








I feel like we have been on vacation for months! Whenever we leave for long periods of time like that I always feel like it takes a while to get back into the groove of the real world.  For instance, my “to do” list for today consists of grocery shopping, 100 loads of laundry, paying bills, work stuff (ie payroll, quickbooks, etc…), purchase flights for Thanksgiving… ugh!  And I’m exhausted!  I know you guys know what I’m talking about… sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation.

Anyway, it really was a great little break from life in Florida. First we were in California for a couple of days for my bestie’s wedding.  Then the last few days we have been visiting my family in Texas.  Husband & I had never been to Los Angeles together before, so it was really nice to be with him to show him around where I lived during college at Pepperdine.  Oh, and my parents were there too!

It was the most gorgeous day to be in Malibu.  I took him on a little tour of the campus, I showed him my old apartment, I introduced him to Westward Beach where I spent lots of time sunbathing with my friends, and of course I took him to my favorite sushi restaurant Nobu which has completely changed since I was in school.  Still delicious, I think it has changed Husband’s life. ;)

After lunch we decided to head back to the hotel since my parents had a flight to catch that evening…


Shutters on the Beach is by far the best hotel in Los Angeles. Not only is it perfectly located in Santa Monica, (close to all major freeways, the airport, shopping, and fabulous restaurants) it also has the best view!  Love, love, love, and highly recommend staying here every time you are in the Los Angeles area.  Oh, and what an amazing sunset we had that night!  (see pics below)

Is it really December already?  Say it isn’t so!  You know what that means… time to spend all of our money!  Just kidding, Husband… (not really)

I’m really NOT into procrastinating on the present picking for my family and friends, so I’m pretty much done with my Christmas shopping!  Go me (insert pat on the back here)!  This year, Husband and I split up family members to buy for, so the people on my list can breathe a sigh of relief… Husband on the other hand… he will be out fighting the traffic and crazy shoppers on December 24th.  Sorry people on Husband’s list… don’t worry, I’m on that list too.

Oh, and my 29th birthday (eeeek!!!) is on the 29th!  My last year in my 20’s will officially start this month… boooooo!!!  Oh well, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Let the countdown begin!
