These Days

Nothing better than a sunny morning in SF (and this porch isn’t bad either).

If you ever find yourself without an agenda in the Bay, head to Mill Valley.

You’ll find houses like this to ooh and aah over.

Headed home to LA for the holiday week and loved every second of it.

So into the brick + white wood fence + layered plants in my sister’s patio.

A Sunny Winter

During the holidays, I took a week off work to spend time with family friends in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. Going home for an extended period of time is always so restorative for me—especially when the sun is shining.

Here’s a look into some of my favorite photos (and memories!) that I snapped while home.

A Look Back: 2017 Travels

2017 was full of adventures, and I loved every single one of them. My boyfriend and I took the biggest trip we’ve ever been on together at the start of the year when we headed to Thailand and Cambodia for 2 weeks. To say it was magical would be an understatement. Though our travels didn’t end there—we also managed to squeeze in a New Mexican getaway, plus a road trip through the South. Check out all of the beautiful places we visited—along with detailed travel itineraries—below!

Look Back on Summer Adventures

From beaches to bougainvillea, this summer has been filled with so many memorable adventures. While our trips to Santa Fe and Southern California, as well as our weekend getaway in San Francisco, were certainly the highlights, we’ve also really enjoyed staying local and soaking up the sun. I’m planning to savor every second of this last month of summer, but here are some of my favorite photos from the season thus far.

These Days

A few weeks back, I spent the weekend at home in LA and had an amazing time trying new restaurants, seeing friends and family, and basking in the sun. Here are my favorite photos from the weekend.IMG_6066

There’s nothing quite as peaceful as the beach.

A little chilly, but still so beautiful.

Finally visited Gracias Madre on Melrose. Loved the tiles on the bar!

Give me a snow cone cocktail, chips, and guacamole, and I’m good to go.

Home For The Weekend

A couple of weekends back, I went home to Los Angeles for the weekend to see my friends, family, and let’s be real, to sunbathe. It was such a fun weekend and the weather was almost too perfect — definitely didn’t need any of the five jackets I packed! See below for my trip highlights.

Late lunch at Le Pain Quotidien. Their avocado toast is everything!

A trip to LA isn’t complete without a visit to my amazing hair stylist.

Freshened up my sister’s built-ins by color-coding her books — a must!
