Don’t Hate On Love

I am a sucker when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Please forgive me for loving a day that is filled with chocolate heart boxes, cupid shaped cards, and stunning red roses. The balloons, the candlelit dinners, the lovey-dovey messages… it all totally gets my heart beating. I can fully admit that I turn to utter…

Gluten Free Everything

Last night, I met up with my bestie from the Westie-coast, Michelle. You have probably seen her on my blog before. I stood up in her wedding, and we are glued at the hip most weekends (along with our other gang of crazy characters). Michelle and I totally freaked out when we found out our NY…

Stop Hating On Monday

Today is Monday and it is going to be wonderful. Uh-oh. Did I already lose your attention? Please allow me to elaborate. You see, I told myself last night that today was going to be a really great day, one of the best days of the entire week. No, it is not my birthday or…

Take A Drive Downtown

Happy Fri-YAY to all my fierce and fabulous readers! To celebrate the weekend I wanted to share with you a few pictures from my favorite new restaurant in downtown Los Angeles. Now, let me keep it real with ya for a moment because I am well aware that dining in DTLA is not for everyone….

Confidence, Courage & Can-Do

Here is the thing: I am not crazy about early mornings, but I really love waking up to a warm cup of coffee especially when it’s handed to me by my boyfriend. I know that sounds like a sentence from a Nicholas Sparks novel, but it is something that really ignites and kicks off my…
