Friday Funnies

Whoops! How did it become Friday already? I'm so excited because we've started a new tradition of riding our bikes to Pizzeria Picco and devouring their amazing pizzas (I cheat on my gluten-free diet on Friday's lately, ok?). It's the perfect way to start the weekend.

And if you need a few giggles, check out the videos from the Harvard Sailing Team. Hilarious!

Let Them Eat Cake

It's Friday and I would like cake. Specifically, I'd like this Old-fashioned chocolate cake with Italian meringue frosting from Miette.

Girl Crush

Last night we watched Pedro Almodovar's beautiful film, Broken Embraces starring Penelope Cruz. The movie was visually stunning and wildly intriguing. I have a serious girl crush on Miss Cruz.

Summer Styles

We just booked a trip to Hawaii for our wedding anniversary next month and I can't wait to hit the beach. This dress will be the perfect thing for cruising around the island and exploring the sights!

Happy Friday!

Hilarious! Thanks Lisa!

Apartment Therapy

Since we moved into our own house about 2 years ago, I've become more and more obsessed with interior design. I want to make changes but I get nervous to make mistakes. One of my friends and favorite bloggers, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan just sent me a copy of his gorgeous new book, apartment therapy's Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces and I'm in love. It shows you that whether you are designing a foyer or a nursery, just fill it with things that you love. Whether it's a vintage tea cup that prompts you to curl up with a book or a framed photo of your family - let your personality shine through and mistakes will be few and far between.

My Besties

I love living in California - it makes me happy beyond words - but the one thing that I don't love is how far away my two best friends are. Come visit!

Shoes Please

I love these wedges by Toms shoes. I hope they make more before the summer is out because they're sold out in my size.

Happy Friday!

It's almost time to log off for the weekend and head out into the wilderness! Well, sort of. We'll be glam-ping this weekend in Bear Valley. See you Monday!

My friend Hannah recently told me about this brilliant company in the UK called Toast. Their catalog is dreamy and makes me want to hop on my bike and head to the countryside with a pile of books and a picnic. They're currently having a sale so head over and check it out!
