MY LIVING ROOM + DINING ROOM HOME TOUR

Much to my husband’s regret, I’m a bit of a nomad. I have no qualms about moving every two years. So, to me, homes are a wonderful opportunity to create a lifestyle that fits where I am in my life. Our last home was an atomic bachelor pad in Los Feliz, perched on stilts with a balcony overlooking downtown. This […]

FRENCH INSPIRED STYLE

I have to admit it, I’m a francophile. I’m usually wishing I was in France at any given moment, and am thoroughly in love with Paris. But do I speak a word of French? Lamentably, no. But I have a reeeeaaaallllyyyyy good reason. I usually visit Paris to direct commercials, and in production there are superstitions. If you book a […]

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

I’m going to miss being a mother on mother’s day this year by just a few months, but I’ve been thinking about what I would like if I were celebrating this year. “Some peace and quiet!” most likely, but a bit of luxury never hurt anyone.

MOTHERS DAY DIY BATH SOAK

Whenever I could smell the eucalyptus and hear the Enya, I knew it was mom’s bath time.

DIY DERBY HAT

Two of my favorite ladies are from Kentucky, and proud of it too. Dean and Whitney possess that perfect southern blend of ladylike manners with salty humor. They can arch an eyebrow sharper than a ruler, say “Bless your heart” so sweetly that you’d never know shade was thrown, and are the most fun people to drink mint juleps with […]

NEUTRAL STYLE

I’m a neutrals kind of girl. If you were to bump into me in the street, I’m probably in all black, or mixing it up with a pop of grey. Neutrals are a wonderful shorthand for put together and stylish, but without having to exert extra effort. But here’s the thing about neutrals – they can get boring really fast. […]

SPRINGTIME STYLE

Now that I have a bit of a bump, I’ve decided to go full mumu. When I found this tangerine colored beach coverup at a vintage store in Palm Springs, I knew it had to become part of my pregnancy springtime wardrobe. The color is just so juicy and fun. To ground the ultra fabulous look, I paired it with […]

DIY CONFETTI EGGS AKA CASCARONES

I always feel obligated around this time of year to do some kind of egg DIY, but I’m going to be honest with you…I don’t like Easter Eggs.   They never turn out that well, for me at least, and then they just sort of hang around the house, overstaying their welcome. Do I just…throw them out? After all of that […]

SPRINGTIME MAKE UP

Goodbye winter! After a thorough scrubbing, I am so ready for fun colors and dewy skin! This look is minimal fuss but big on impact. I love the idea of barely there make up and a punch of color with a strong brow. It looks super fresh without being fussy, and is my go-to look for Spring. First, start with […]
