ELOPED


On April 17th 2017, Chris & I gathered with a handful of friends & family at the oldest Victorian house in Mountain View. And so on a warm, yet rainy afternoon, we eloped at the lovely Rengstorff House.

A friend married us. Our sisters were our witnesses. My mother was our photographer. A friend provided my flowers. And a couple friends were there to capture these fun, grainy, 90s VHS-styled video clips....it was a fun, wet, but most certainly memorable day. Eloping was perfect for us and we wouldn't have had it any other way.


Enjoy this fun video and remember future brides AND groomies....it's YOUR day. It's about YOU. YOUR future. This is what YOU want to do. Don't lose sight of that. If a big party is in order, then do it! But if something quiet and small and romantic is what you want, then do it. Have FUN!

Honeymoon in Palm Springs




So, SURPRISE! We eloped & hopped on a plane bound for the hot, hot desert. Palm Springs was the destination & the Avalon Hotel was where we lounged poolside. Days spent exploring Joshua Tree and the Desert X art exhibitions, lunching downtown and soaking in that dry heat. I couldn't wait to escape the rain here in the Bay Area and this quick getaway was a welcome vacation for us newlyweds...by the way, for those who are lost, my husband's name is Chris. And he's wonderful. And that's pretty much all that matters...

Bathroom Diaries




And I'm back at it. Coming to you from my bathroom. Part 2 of my beauty regiment focuses on your questions. You guys wanted more information about those complimentary facials I get once a month from Sisley Paris. AND I discuss my latest novelty, the jade roller!

Sit back. Press play. And hopefully I answer most, if not all, your questions. 

I recorded this first thing in the morning, so this is as real as it gets babes. No makeup. Bare-faced. Sorry I'm not sorry.

Below I've added a few photos from my monthly facials with Sisley + I've provided links to those must-have jade rollers!

Links to my latest Shoes


LET'S GO SHOPPING FOR SHOES!






Purchased sometime last year, it's no wonder these rosy velvet wonders remain a popular AND still available item at ZARA. The perfect bootie that easily went from Fall to Winter to Spring! $49.99 and at last check, all sizes are available. 

True to size. I'm typically a 7, so in ZARA lingo, that means I always buy the 6 1/2.

CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!

Nope. Not Stella. Not $900+ Because let's face it. While these stacked puppies are deliciously fun, they are super trendy. And come next year, maybe even next season, I might not be so into this look anymore. Not to mention, $900 for shoes? Woof. Love you Stella, maybe in my next life though baby.

So, at SheIN I scooped these for $37. SOLD. Done and Done. True to size. I'm a 7 and the 37 fits fine.

CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!









Okay...so basically once I discovered those flatforms on SheIN, I couldn't help but snag these rosy-pink, velvetty, faux-fur lined loafer slippers. Because these were only $33. I have no self-control at these prices. These are not GUCCI honey. And I do not care. Once again, $900+ for slippers? Not worth it, even if I could....and if the GUCCI gods ever read this they're going to tell me to fuck off.

Anywho, these not gucci's are soft, comfy and I haven't taken them off. Yes, these are coming from somewhere in China. God only knows how they were made. And yes, they smell funny out of the box...lol...but guess what? I kinda just don't care. There's honesty for you. If the shoes truly sucked, I wouldn't bother showing them to you or linking them here. Once again, true to size. I am wearing a 37.
