Gimme gimme more!

'Tis the season of giving and gifting.
Make it worth your while and without breaking the bank.

Inspire Me

Visuals that come to mind when I'm needing some motivation and re-energizing are from two of my favorite places in the world : Australia and Portland. Both so different yet display some of the most beautiful arrays of colors I've seen.

The Australian seas and the fall leaves of Portland...



And then I ran across this photo from Fashionation and I am dying over the combination of these colors and creativity! Wow.


Tis the season for some inspiration, I should say...

To My Beautiful Mother...


to the most beautiful woman in my mother!
Charming, smart, feisty and incredibly self-sacrificing,
I don't know where I would be or what I would do without her.
She is forever my inspiration.
You are ageless, mamma!

"All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother."
-- Abraham Lincoln

Here's to another year...loads of smooches to you!

With my deepest love

Blooms Day


In such blistery weather (hello, WIND!), a girl can't help but desire the comfiest and coziest items to amp up a somewhat dull winter outfit.

I am fixated on the whole crocheted, knitted, oversized beanie hat look. Really, it is my save the hair, no time to style, haven't washed in days, go-to method.

But as I perused Forever21 this weekend for some cheap finds, I spotted a young lady with the most adorable mango colored crocheted beanie with a flower rosette. OK, too cute!
Alas, not to be found at Forever.

But for those who don't want the whole beanie look, I've found another fabulous beauty find from Anthropologie that is sure to inspire! Plus, another added bonus besides a killer look is the warmth for your ears!

Blustery Bloom Headwrap, $24


Wear with crazy curls, a sweet ballerina bun, or slick straight locks.

Cat Got Your Tongue?


Although she's pretty cheese factor on the glorious "So You Think You Can Dance?", I still think she has some killer style, stunning beauty and legs for days. Watch her this season for some outrageous beauty looks!

TGIF...I need a cocktail ;)

Sonia's Got it All


Sonia Kashuk has a glorious line of makeup, brushes and bags via Target stores nationwide and I am quite in love. From barely there powders, to lusciously vibrant lip colors and stunning eye shadows, you are sure to find something you can't live without. Dare to try any and all of her products. I especially adore her makeup bags-- so fresh and hip with plenty of storage. Plus, everything is ungodly affordable for the quality you are getting.

Just some of my favorite faces...

Monday No Fun Day


+ walking these {SF} hills all day...


+ cocktails, late night {incredible sushi} & family time
= me feeling like Alice in Wonderland [aka lost] and needing some much deserved tea to rid myself of this sore throat.


More to come this week!

Loves and hugs,

"In the streets of San Francisco..."

...I'll be sure to wear flowers in my hair.


A much needed mini vacay to California with mine sisters and bestie. A brief stop to lounge like kitty cats with my family in sunny Sacramento and an early Thanksgiving feast!


It is sure to be the San Francisco treat.

Skin Rescue

After a spooooky night with layers upon layers of this face makeup (grrr)...{photo by Double D, courtesy of Book Face :)}
...I desperately need a little face rescue to tackle the monster mash on my chin! So I depend on my dear Mint Julep Face Mask, $7.

Refreshing, but also drying in order to combat those pesky bumps and impurities in your pores. Slather it on in the shower with steam, or do spot treatment for 15 minutes until dry. Truly a skin rescue.

Grr baby, grr....XO
