Hi angels!

Today was such a happy day.  Happy days are the best.  The ones where you’re just giggling all day and dancing in your apartment blasting music, a cute cat crashes your photoshoot, etc.

Tomorrow is technically the first day of Autumn, but it still feels like summer here in LA so I’ll continue to dress like it.  I love the beige tones in this look.  And the cat was just the icing on the cake, really.  Thanks cat <3

I’m currently watching Sara clean up the absolute mess she made in our living room.  Clothes EVERYWHERE. She’s just now unpacking from Sweden.  I unpack the second I get home from the airport.  Is anyone else like that?  I cannot bare to look at a full suitcase sitting on the floor.  I cringe.

Life has been so much better at the new apartment, I cannot even begin to explain.  At our new apartment it’s bright and happy sunshine and rainbows.  SO happy we moved here.  The only thing we’re waiting on is kitchen table chairs and a couch and then I get to show you guys how we’ve decorated! It’s so pretty already :)

Hi!

Ever since I started my Equinox gym membership in July, I’ve only worked out by myself or with a trainer.  While that really works for me I was starting to get a little bored, because I often found myself doing the same routine at the gym.  30 minutes of cardio, then squats, butt exercises on the floor, and then arms and abs.  Since I got back from Sweden, where I did not workout once (why do I still bother wasting precious space in my luggage for workout clothes?!!), I was really itching to add a different level of intensity to my workouts.  So this week I wanted to mix in some group fitness classes.

Equinox has a bunch of different classes, from yoga to spin, and mostly everything in between, so I’m trying a variety of different classes this week to find out which ones I like going to.  So far I’ve tried “Barre Fit Cardio” and “Get Up and Flow”.  I’ll do a review on the classes once the week is over to let you guys know which ones I’ll be adding to my workout routine.  Ideally I would want to go to a class 3X a week and add solo gym time in between.

I’m definitely going to try one of the spin classes, because they own Soul Cycle (one of the most popular spin studios across the States) and they have top of the line bikes and instructors.  I also see”Cardio Hip Hop Funk,” “Best Butt Ever” and “Ab Lab” so I think I’ll try those out too.

Once I’m done experimenting with the classes I’ll let you guys know which ones I did and didn’t like, which made me feel most sore, my absolutely favorite, which ones were a total snooze, and so on.

What is your favorite workout class to take?  I think my ALL-TIME favorite is pilates.

Snapshots from Stockholm!

I weirdly had such a strong connection to this fountain, right outside of our hotel.  It was so beautiful and reminded me of a dandelion!

This was one of our dishes from Punk Royale.  Every dish was a little crazy.  The first course was a scoop of caviar placed on your hand, which you had to eat right before a shot of vodka.  The caviar was the best I’ve ever had, but the bill was sooo expensive.  They didn’t give you a menu so I didn’t have a clue it would be so expensive.  The bill came out to over $400 for 3 people…

One of Lars Wallin’s wedding gowns.  This one was my second favorite, after the strapless lace gown with the bow.

I looked through the current issue of Wedding magazine for some inspo before the photoshoot.  This was my favorite picture from the spread!

Ever since Italy I’ve been in the mood for Aperol Spritz’s when I’m at a bar.  This one wasn’t as yummy as the others I’ve had though!

Swedish meatballs!! I have to order them at least once when I visit.  This trip I had it twice.

That awkward moment when you share the same husband as your sister….. LOL.

A pretty picture from miles and miles above the ground.

The first evening in Stockholm, when we walked around one of my favorite areas in Stockholm, Gamla Stan :)

Mister French

Hi guys!

So Swedes really know how to day party. We went to Mister French in Stockholm and had brunch before we walked next door to the day party, where are friend Christian Fang played. They went crazy with the smoke bombs and confetti. That's something you don't experience in the daytime in LA haha. We only stayed for a little while, before we went to watch the soccer game with Djurgården. They won 4-1 and I only saw one of their goals haha. I was always looking away or in the bathroom when they scored… so typical!

HERE COMES THE BRIDE

Sooo can I get married next week? Haha no but seriously it is so much fun to be a bride. I can only imagine how much better it feels when it's real! We shot for the cover of Wedding magazine under Lifestyle publishing and the entire day felt like an absolute dream. The location was a beautiful castle not too far from the center of Stockholm and we wore Lars Wallin wedding gowns. Does it get any better than that?

Stockholm is treating us so well it makes me want to cry! The people here are so unbelievably sweet :)

New hair (cut and color), top, and bag!

Also, does anyone else agree that as soon as September 1st hit it instantly became fall weather??? Just like that! But I’m so ready for fall fashion.  I decided I’m going to wear my Doc Martens a lot this season because you can kind of wear them with anything.

tee from Montazami Brand (available on the website soon!) // duster from L’Academie // pants are old from Free People // bag from Evve Milano [here]

We arrived in beautiful Stockholm! We took it easy tonight and walked to Gamla Stan for dinner and then went back home.  We have a big day tomorrow, shooting at a castle for the cover of a bridal magazine!! I am so freaking excited <3 I will bring my camera to take some behind the scenes pictures. Goodnight from a tired ol’ me!

Today is the official launch date of my cap design collaboration with Hat Attack! I am so in love with the cap.  It’s black with a beautiful white rope and black and gold buttons.  I made sure to choose something that wouldn’t “go out of style” but still keeps up with the current trend.  What do you guys think?!  It is  available to buy here

I would love to hear your feedback <3

Sara and I are just about to board our flight to Stockholm!  We are shooting for the covers of bridal magazines, which is extremely special for me because it will be my FIRST COVER EVER!  I’ve been waiting so long for this and it’s always been a lifelong dream, and now it’s coming true.  I never would have thought it would be with a bridal magazine though 😉

Keep checking the blog for updates about our trip to Sweden!

A NEW LOCAL SPOT

Venice just got a little bit better with the addition of a new and hip local breakfast and lunch spot called Great White. Its in prime location, right across from the Venice sign, and surprisingly it's not flooded with tourists…. yet haha. The crowd is all 20 and 30 something year olds and the atmosphere and decor are so on point!

The menu is the real reason why I'm hooked though. Fresh ingredients and healthy options. They've been open for only five days now and I've already been twice! One time for breakfast with Austin and one time with just a book for lunch :)

A Saturday in Venice

Feelin fly this Saturday afternoon!

Austin's sister Ashli came up from OC to stay with me for the day and night! I hadn't seen her since Hawaii so we had soooo much to catch up on. We just finished up dinner with Austin and now we're headed out in West Hollywood. Happy Saturday my loves!
