Happy Birthday!











For some reason turning 31 feels better than turning 30. Not sure why...maybe it's because I've had a whole year to get adjusted to this whole being in my 30's thing.  So, let's party! I thought my birthday today was a great way to celebrate some of my most favorite, fashionable finds...which just so happened to be all white and gold! And lucky YOU...some fabulous reader is going to win everything in the photo above.

Frends headphones...what can I say? My husband bought me my first pair in rose gold last year for my 30th birthday and like their motto goes, sometimes one's not enough. And they're right...I want them all. So here's your chance at winning a pair!

Pima Doll is like family to me at this point. Their hand-knit pieces are a staple in my wardrobe. They're simply amazing, comfortable, chic and unique. These hand-knit shorts (in which ever size you choose should you win) are too fabulous and the photos never do them justice.

Claudia Rowe has been busy making a name for herself in the jewelry department. And her ombre, chain link bracelet with magnetic closure has not left my wrist since I received it. If you haven't checked out her website, I have a feeling you'll be there a while trying to decide which awesome piece you have to have...but seriously, this ombre one is perfect. Did I mention it's OMBRE?! LoL!

Reiko Kaneko Designs has been a hit all over the blogoshpere this past year. And it's no wonder why...her gold drip tease and gold lip tease cups are irresistible. I'm pretty sure I started drinking a lot more tea because of these cups. Everything Reiko Kaneko makes is simplistic in shape but so chic. And the gold dipped series is my favorite. I must have given out 3 or 4 cups as gifts this past Christmas. And here's you're chance to win a cup and saucer that I don't even have in my collection yet! Exciting!

These are all truly some of my most favorite things and I wanted to be able to share them with you, so GOOD LUCK!!

ONE READER WILL WIN THE FOLLOWING:

[1] set of white/gold Taylor headphones c/o Frends
[1] ombre chain link bracelet c/o Claudia Rowe Jewelry
[1] gold drip cup and saucer c/o Reiko Kaneko Designs
[1] pair of hand-knit, drawstring shorts c/o Pima Doll

Learning to ride...


So, lucky me...I'm taking riding lessons c/o amazing trainer, Roman L. Dizon - Founder of Calero K9 Education. Yes, basically he'll train your dog and you! 

Yesterday I spent the day at the Calero K9 Edu. ranch learning the basics of riding. And I had a BLAST! My thighs and other unmentionables are killing me today...lol...but soooo worth it. Plus, I finally got to wear my Joie riding boots for what they were actually meant for! Fabulous. Obvi I had to look stylish. I'm totally down for this equestrian style.

Major thanks to Roman and Calero K9 Education (based in the SF Bay Area). You can follow along with them on Instagram @CaleroK9Education or send them a Tweet @CaleroK9EDU.

Roman is an award-winning expert trainer and specializes in dog training. He has over 30 years experience. And he's awesome.
