I have to admit, my biggest weakness is ice cream. No, seriously. I am a ginormous ice cream fan! Or should I say freak?!? I can have ice cream all day, everyday. In the winter, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.Read More
It’s happened to all of us. We make plans for ourselves the night before, to wake up and finish your errands/tasks but then find yourself fighting the idea to get out of bed. Before you know it, you open and close your eyes, only to find out it’s so late.Read More
Wondering what this spring 2018 season has in store for us? Well believe it or not, think bold, monochromatic and color block prints. Playful but still strong, confident and beautiful.

Just as much as I love being dressed up, I love the idea of walking through an empty field filled with poppies and hearing the rumbling noise of animals in the background. It might seem corny but one of my favorite movies is The Wizard of Oz.Read More
Have you ever looked in your closet and thought to yourself grrrr, how do I pair this garment without looking like a fluffy marshmallow? Or the worst, you get ready, leave the house and somehow end up taking photos, but then realize you look like your drowning in a sea because you didn’t think to unlayer. In some cases layering is extremely essential to layer your life away but for others it’s no fun! Living in the sunshine state of California, we’re known for the great weather but to be honest I beg to differ. It sometimes feels more unpredictable than predictable.
Here are a few tips on how to layer.
My first tip is to start with your basics, leggings, and a cotton long sleeve or thermal are great starters. They’re essentially lightweight and allow you to layer on without adding too much bulk all at once.
Secondly, insulating your feet. Pairing your outfit with over the knee socks will not only keep you warm but add a bit of character. Even if you’re not intending to expose your socks, they’ll definitely keep you warm.
Third, layering another bottom over your outfit like a pair of shorts or even a skirt to add texture.
Fourth, a comfy knit sweater is always essential. It is always a good idea to keep a few knit’s in your closet for emergencies. They're great to layer over your basic tee.
Fifth, picking a cute pair of boots and even adding a great coat or blazer to tie it all together! If necessary add a cute scarf, to add some pizazz around your neck.
As you can see I created my own sporty look to fit the climate in California. I decided to layer my everyday hoodie from H&M with my nifty blazer from Zara. Along with my high rise mom jeans from Topshop and classic black heels from Zara. Lastly, pairing it all with my favorite handbag from Rebecca Minkoff.
What is your go to winter layering item?
It never fails. Right when you think, all is going so well, you look into the mirror at your reflection and realize something is different. But like most of us we can’t really put our finger on it. We think to ourselves, what is it? But of course, after a while of pondering in the mirror, you come to realize that your hair is thinning. Maybe a little on the brows, on the hairline or your infamous spot where you part your hair. Ugh, why? Inconvenient, I know.
Today, I decided to share with you how I used castor oil to help with regrowth.
Although you typically find castor oil in the home health section of the store, I find that it is one of those items we all need to be reminded to keep stocked in our medicine cabinet. It is inexpensive, easy to find and can be used in so many ways.
If you haven’t noticed, I am an avid hair side parter and currently unsure when this madness will change. But for such a long time I felt like I’ve had to accept the idea that my side part, was always going to be off. It just didn’t seem as full as it once did.
So one afternoon I decided to pull the castor oil out of my medicine cabinet, grabbed a mascara wand and applied a light application of lukewarm, castor oil. The real trick to this is to massage the area near your scalp, circulating the area. While its natural properties help nourish and repair damaged tissues. It promotes strong and healthy regrowth with a noticeable difference in about two weeks.
Before I knew it, it became my added night time routine. I applied a little castor oil to my side part, hairline and brows. And let's just say with consistency and patience it really made a noticeable difference.

California weather can be so unpredictable. So many people talk about how California has great weather and I honestly wonder to myself, how?
