Hi babes!

Thanks to everyone who has entered our social media contests so far!  Just to remind you, all of our contests are open until Wednesday night, and we will be announcing the winners Thursday morning.  These are great giveaways that you do not want to miss out on.  Day 3 of our giveaway week will begin in a few hours… on Instagram.  Make sure to keep checking for more info on that 🙂

I wanted to share with you guys one of my favorite, low-key, low-hassle desserts that I just love to make.  Sliced bananas and berries with crunchy almond butter drizzle (I usually buy fresh almond butter from Whole Foods but I also like this one from Trader Joe’s) and bee pollen on top.  I am so obsessed with bee pollen.  I’ve been adding it to all my fruity snacks, smoothies, and protein shakes and it gives a sweet, honey-like taste with a creamy/chalky consistency.  Bee pollen has been known to naturally reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and relieve stress.  Fun fact: we buy our bee pollen from our dog groomers!  Apparently it’s great for your pups too 🙂

SIDE NOTE: My mom and I are taking a super last-minute work trip to NYC tomorrow!!!! I’m so excited 🙂  My mom was asked to be on Skavlan, a popular Swedish/Norwegian talk show which will be filmed on Thursday.  We will be there for only 24 hours before we fly back home to LA on Thursday night.  Still haven’t packed…. and I’m in OC.  I’m waking up super early tomorrow morning and jetting to LA to pack my bags before heading to LAX.  Our flight is at noon, so we don’t have too much time to prepare outfits!

THE PERFECT NUDE NAIL

Don’t you just love when things work out?  Like when you score the PERFECT nude nail polish from the nail salon.  I have been looking for a natural-looking pink/nude shade for quite some time now, and today’s the day I found it.  It’s called ”Put It In Neutral” by OPI.  The only downside is that it is a little sheer so I had to do three coats.  Three coats is always scary because it’s more likely to get marked up (because it’s thick & gooey), buttttt you only live once, right?

Do you guys have a neutral shade recommendation?  If you like natural-looking feminine nails, I highly suggest trying this one out!

You can buy the polish here 🙂

Hello my loves!

Here’s a look from Friday, decked out in Montazami Brand.  The rodeo flare pants are my absolute favorite— they’re stretchy so they really hug the butt and give it a natural lift, while the long flare leg elongates the body.  I hope you guys got to take advantage of our free shipping weekend, but in case you didn’t, don’t worry!  We are having GIVEAWAY WEEK starting tomorrow, with multiple giveaways on three different social channels.  Keep checking the blog for updates on our contests all week, because you won’t want to miss out!

I’m back home in Orange County sitting in the backyard with my momma… the fire pit is on and the dogs are by our side.  We’re getting ready to watch the Emmy Awards hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.  I wish Stranger Things was out in time to receive Emmy nominations!!  I just started watching it on Netflix with Austin and we are completely hooked.  Are you guys watching it?  I’m on episode 7 which is semi-depressing considering there’s only 8 of them haha.

Oh Venice Beach… you never cease to amaze me.  Sometimes I forget how much of a tourist attraction it is down there by the boardwalk.  You will basically see anything and everything walking through those crowds… including this unicorn-dance-club-mobile we had the pleasure of experiencing haha.  This contraption had two guys on the top floor blasting house music— and I was loving every minute of it bc everyone needs a little toonage when they’re photoshootin!!  Their unicorn cart also went perfectly with my outfit sooo 🙂

How fricken awesome is this jacket though?  I’m dying over it.  Statement jackets are the new crop tops.

Sitting in bed at 8:45 pm on a Saturday night and it feels GREAT.  I’m waking up early tomorrow and heading home to OC.  Happy weekend babes!

p.s. don’t forget about Montazami Brand’s FREE SHIPPING all weekend with code ”love”

WEARING: TOP BY ZOEY REVA [HERE] // CULOTTES BY WILFRED // SHOES BY RAYE [HERE] // LOUIS VUITTON BAG // SUNNIES FROM LONDON (CHELSEA MARKET) // BRACELETS BY JANE AND SOPHIE

Good morning!

Here’s a better look of what I wore yesterday… so girly but I loved it. Nothing wrong with a little lace and silk. The massive pink roses were just the perfect accessory, don’t you think?!  Even though I wasn’t at NYFW this year, I still got really inspired by all of the street style and runway fashion.  I’m determined to start dressing more bold!  I’m going to start saying YES to statement pieces and put more creativity into what I wear.  Fashion is so powerful and it’s time to have a little fun with it.

Now I’m just about waking up, ready to make some organic green tea and get my morning started.  Sara and I are taking some pictures in a little, and I’ll probably head to the gym afterwards.  Tonight we’re going to the Vanity Fair Emmy’s kick-off party!  Happy Friday xx

Happy Thursday babes<3

Overslept a full hour this morning— I have been so tired lately!  I think it’s because I’ve been going hard in the gym this week.  My body might have needed some extra zzz’s to recover haha.  At 9 am we went to a beautiful brunch at the Four Seasons for the launch of their new Italian coffee shop called Vinoteca.  It’s essentially an on-the-go coffee shop by day, and a wine bar by night.  Everything is set up for the convenience of the public, including free express parking and very reasonable prices.  *Not your usual hotel prices if you know what I mean.  I have to come back here in between meetings one day 🙂

Now I’m back home, in front of the computer screen and ready to get some work done.  I’m gunna try to knock it all out, and maybe do a lesson of Rosetta Stone, before my eyes start straining again.  Maybe starting to learn a new language on the computer wasn’t the best idea for my eyes at the moment?? Haha.

PS. an outfit post of this look is on its way!

Helloooo my loves!

I’ve been playing around with color in my wardrobe lately.  As much as I do love an all-black / neutral look, sometimes it’s fun to dress a little bit out of my comfort zone.  And since I don’t really have much restriction on the style of clothes I wear, I like to challenge myself with colors instead.  That being said, say hello to my new beautiful bag!  This is my third Strathberry bag, so I’m glad I picked this gorgeous blossom yellow color.  It easily transitions from a summer bag to a fall bag, so I’ll be bringing this one out quite a lot this season.

On another note I’ve been having a really hard time with eye strain lately…. towards the end of the day it’s really hard to look at the computer screen.  I’m spending way too much time working on the computer, but I don’t know how I would avoid this?  I’ve been taking breaks from the computer to go outside, workout, etc. but the second I look at the screen again my eyes are hazy.  If you guys know anything that can help with this I would be more than happy to hear it!  I’m not sure if I should go get my eyes examined by the doctor…

Got a bunch of fun things planned for tomorrow, so I’m off to bed!
