Better Blog RetreatA couple weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending the Better Blog Retreat in Park City, UT with some of my best blogging friends.  Maria and Heidi were the gracious hostesses and did a fabulous job.  Stay tuned for more of the fun times we had coming soon.

CreamistryA new ice cream shop has come to Southern California called “Creamistry.”  It’s located in Irvine and they specialize in making your ice cream after you order using liquid nitrogen.  Check out our full review on our “Where to Eat in Orange County” page.  Some of the best ice cream we’ve ever had.  Pictured above is the Captain Crunch Ice Cream with Brownie Bites and Hot Fudge.  Amazing!

whbm_logo Can we talk jeans for a second?!  I thought I knew all of the best jeans, fits, brands…..but I have to say White House Black Market completely surprised me this past week.  I tried a pair of their Noir Straight Fit Skinny Jean and could not believe how much I liked them.  They have all lengths available.  It is so hard for me to find jeans short enough, I usually have to get them hemmed.  Trust me on this one, you’ve got to go try a pair on next time!  I guess their jeans were featured on Oprah too.  I see why 🙂

collection-imageI have been dying to get my hands on some of the new Tory Burch Beauty Line.  Have you sampled her new perfume/parfum?!  It is lovely.  Officially on my wishlist.  Love the packaging on her new makeup too.  Bravo Tory!

Tory Burch Boots

Sometimes I torture myself by looking at Tory Burch boots online.  I likely will never own any of these due to the hefty price tag, but wow, I LOVE these!!

79516773-04I will say however, in my hunt for a great ankle boot, I found these super cute nude ankle boots at Forever 21 a couple weeks ago for under $35.  Yes and thank you Forever 21.  They go with about everything and are pretty darn comfortable.




LOVE these fun facts about lemon water!  I’ve been adding drops of my Lemon Essential Oil right in my water bottles during the day.  Bring on the lemon water!


Oh my gosh you guys, I started doing heated yoga again!  I used to practice it in AZ then again in CA right when we moved here, but took a 3 year break.  I forgot how amazing you feel all day long after each class.  Can’t say enough about it.

Alright, that’s all for me today, have a fantastic weekend!!!

    I was looking at a pair of Tory Burch boots today and wishing I could cut the price tag in half to somehow justify buying them.

    My mother in law kept telling me to drink lemon water, too, and now that I see you’re suggesting it, I’m all over it! 😉 Just something about it coming from the mother-in-law that doesn’t make me bite. lol!
