pink paisleys & double denim

My mommy gave me this shawl back in January & since then I just can’t stop wearing it. Part of the reason is because it reminds me of her and makes me feel as though she’s a lot closer to me when I miss her like crazy and another reason being that it’s still so freaking cold and this thick shawl is amazingly warm. Although winter is definitely overstaying its welcome now, I must admit that (more…)

conversation heart cookies


Hi my darling angel pies! Guess what?? For Valentine’s day, I baked you all these adorable conversation heart cookies — so bring a tall glass of milk and lets indulge in lots and lots of SUGAR before they’re all gone! The first time I attempted to make these cookies, it was a couple years back and I was including it as one component of a birthday/valentine’s day package I was putting together for my honey… and that was also when I swore that never in my life would I ever attempt to decorate a sugar cookie again solely because of the major disaster that they turned out to be — I’m talking textbook pinterest fail type of disaster.

The snow storm was so bad that it actually caused our flights going home to be cancelled TWICE, giving us a whole extra day in California — but definitely no complaints about that from me!

gray suede sneakers

A couple weeks ago I did something I hadn’t done in a REALLLLLY long time– I bought some Nikes! I’ve definitely mentioned this on my blog before, but back in the day I used to be a huge sneaker-head but over time I kinda lost touch with my tomboy side. Slowly but surely, sneakers are making their way back into the forefront of my closet though because sometimes you can’t beat the comfort they provide. When I saw these suede Nike’s I was instantly drawn to them because of the classic vintage feel (more…)
