Rachel Zoe...My Favorite Looks...

With the Rachel Zoe Project back in full swing, I am reminded how INCREDIBLE her style is. The maxi dresses, wide leg jeans, the fur, and the hats! I can't help but to love it all! Such a classic, boho chic vibe this woman has going on. Let me share with you a few of my favorite looks...

OK...this entire look is pretty much perfection in my book. The dress, bag, and braid...can't get enough!

She seems to stick with her neutrals, but she certainly looks gorgeous in this black and white combo
She somehow even makes mommy hood and a plain white t-shirt look crazy chic
So what do you think? So good, right?

First Birthday Gift...

I've been on a search for a cute gift for my little cousin who just turned one. We don't have any babes of our own yet, so buying gifts for the little ones is always a fun thing for me! So the question is...what would a one year old boy actually enjoy? After doing some searching and seeing that a friend just purchased one for her guy...it was a no brainer. Who wouldn't love a teepee/hideout spot to play in? I actually wouldn't mind a grown up version of one these babies...

LOVE this one!
If it was a little girl would definitely get one of these!
After hmming and haaaing and finding out that brown is a consistent color through out the house, I pulled the trigger on this one. Kind of a hybrid between and teepee/tent.

He loves it! What do you guys think about them for a 1st birthday gift?
Hope you had a great weekend!

An Attitude for Gratitude

After a fun weekend trip to sunny California, it can be challenging to find the beauty in a winter snow storm! Can you relate? Instead of getting down about it, a couple of my girlfriends and I have started a group gratitude text message forum (basically just an ongoing group text) Here we share what we are happy about each day, and what we will be grateful for in the future. We sometimes include images of whatever it is we are grateful for, as well as things we are yearning for.

I have tried to do a gratitude journal in the past, and it seems that I start out strong and gradually stop writing in it after a few days. With this gratitude text message group I feel I am accountable for contributing as often as my friends are. Or in some instances my obligation (in a good way) to kick them off for the day. As a result I really am finding more joy in my every day journey and find myself looking forward to things that I want to come my way in the future.

So with all of that being said...if you are feeling a little case of the winter blues, or even if you are completely happy and content, I totally and completely suggest starting a group and see how rewarding it can be for yourself!

Wishing you a happy and productive day!

Hey guys! I apologize for my absence. Running my own boutique is a little bit more time consuming than I had imagined! I am happy to be back and look forward to more regular posts.

Aside from the store, we managed to sneak away last weekend for an orange county get away. It was amazing! We stayed at The Resort at Pelican Hill. It is an incredibly beautiful property! If you are considering heading to Newport for a vacay I would suggest this place to you over and over again. You will love it!

 The Pool
 View from the villa
 We took a couple afternoon trips to Laguna...Hoping this to be our home some day! In love!

 Morning tea and breakfast...they have the cutest tea sets!
And our view from breakfast wasn't too bad either!
Heading to Crystal Cove...where we spent an afternoon by the beach, sipping margaritas. 
We are back now and I am missing the ocean. I am however, feeling very blessed and refreshed. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. See you guys tomorrow!
