White Wonderland

This New Year's Eve I'm attending an event called White Wonderland. While searching for inspiration for my ensemble I came across these dreamy pictures from Vogue Italia, and had to share.

Happy Hipster Holidays

On our way down the coast for Christmas, we decided to stop and visit friends in Santa Barbara for the night. You never have to twist our arms to do a little wine tasting, and this time we happened upon Municipal Winemakers, one of the newest and most unique tasting rooms in town. Complete with a bar-b-q ashtray and life size stuffed bear this hipster haven won over my heart. I can't say for sure but I think I may be joining Club Awesome in the very near future ;)


Twinkle Toes

With the holiday season in full swing and a bevy of parties in the works, what more can a girl want other than a pair show stopping shoes? Go ahead and embrace your inner Glitter Girl, I promise you won't regret it.

Morimoto Magic

Yesterday I was lucky enough to enjoy an early holiday lunch at Morimoto Napa. To say I have a thing for sushi is an understatement, so you can only imagine the amount of planning that went into my order. Iron Chef Morimoto lived up to his fame with dishes that melted in your mouth and had subtle layers of complex flavors. Above left is what I deemed the "Bento Box of Champions," and right is the (sent from heaven) Toro Tartar. Are you drooling yet? I am...


Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

I've been enjoying looking at my Christmas tree for the past week now. I have to say, once again, Target did not dissapoint and allowed me to pull it together on a budget. Below are some other trees from around the web that are unique and inspiring.
