Bungalow 9 Jewelry What a fun couple of weeks it’s been! I recently began working with Jen Crosby of Bungalow 9 Jewelry on digital branding and social media for her jewelry line along with product photography. Collaborating with other entrepreneurs is one of the best things about being freelance, especially when they create such beautiful things.

Sherise Lee The Radder MOCA Los Angeles

I met up with Sherise from The Radder for lunch and a visit to the MOCA Pacific Design Center to see the Jacob Hashimoto‘s ‘Gas Giant’ exhibit. His work is incredible – so much beauty in one room. An absolute must see!

Gravel and Gold Boob Top Poster

We had a little get away to Ojai again – just because (why not, right?). I treated myself to the Gravel & Gold boob top I’ve been eyeing ever since I lost my favorite tunic of for like ever, and also scored some great vintage finds for Tawas Trading Co.

Last Sunday I metup with Cori Magee for brunch, some wine and lots of life and girl chatter. Definitely left feeling inspired and am always excited to meet a kindred spirit.

Our garden has been growing like crazy! I gathered all of these in one go. Had no idea we had so many green peppers. Feeling super grateful for being able to grow some of our own food right in our yard.

I hate to talk about this but fleas are SO bad this season! Even with meds from the vet, both our cats and #rustytaylorlee are still having issues. I’ve been hearing the same troubles from friends… what’s the deal? Anyway, I’ve been bringing Rusty to work with me every so often now that Christopher has been working long days at Civilianaire.

Saw this little baby over by the studio. I’m so into Deus ex Machina‘s Parking Lot d’Elegance which has totally become a thing of it’s own on Instagram 

I went on a little field trip last Thursday and made a pitstop at 356 Mission – the new Ooga Booga store/gallery. I loved the vibrant colors of this group of plants and succulents in the doorway. So pretty, pretty.

I spent a good part of my weekend weeding and cleaning up our garden. I had neglected it for most of the summer and while most would have given up with the half burnt-sun bleached tomato plant, and flowering basil – I’m giving it another go.

Anyway, follow me on Instagram here to see my daily explorations!

Instagram Sundays / 02

It’s been a few weeks since my last Instagram recap + so much has happened! Here we go…

I’ve been finding inspiration in the most unexpected places. I am obsessed with the color orange lately and love how vibrant this orange is combined with the yellow, whites and pinks. This shot was some shag from a pillow at a recent photo shoot. Beautiful, isn’t it?

Last weekend I picked up this new little guy from a random swap meet we stopped at out in Ontario. I love succulents and this String of Pearls goes perfectly in our kitchen. We have a few hooks that the last tenant left above our stove, which I’m now using to hold plants.

Christopher and I celebrated out 9th anniversary a couple of weekends ago! It’s been a great ride and I look forward to more adventures together. I love this shot Jamie took about a year ago of us at Cafe 50’s… I think it captures our dynamic so well.

Last weekend for Memorial Day, we went back to Joshua Tree on a whim and it was one of the best trips ever! We camped at our spot again but this time, only had to make one trek out. The highlight of our night was watching the moon rise over the rocks. Yes… rise.

We stopped by Crossroads Cafe in Joshua Tree for breakfast. I love this spot so much! They have amazing vegetarian options and the restaurant has such great vibes all around. Highly recommend going there if you’re ever in the area. You won’t regret it!

I’ve really been getting into beer lately, especially local micro-brews. We discovered The Tap Room in El Segundo a while back and have now been popping for a growler every now and then. Support your local breweries, and stick it to the man!

They say growing your own food is like growing your own money. Well, we finally planted our garden on the side of our house and it’s begun to bear fruits + veggies! Super exciting and rewarding.

Katie brought in her amazing new collection of work to share with us. This set of postcards she and her friend Julie created is entitled “The Highs and Lows of Summer” and I think I am now obsessed with their collaborative project The Slow Season. Incredibly beautiful stuff.

Our friends Jose and Dennis came to visit! They stayed at The Cadillac Hotel in Venice which equated to too much fun. Can’t wait to see them soon…

We found these treasures yesterday while thrifting on the west side. 70’s Snoopy rug hooks and a 50’s Dennis the Menace doll. Such great finds – it’ll be hard to part with them next weekend at the Venice High Flea Market… we’re going to be selling stuff!

During our venture out and about yesterday we also stopped by one of our favorite record spots. Digging for vinyl is most def one of the best ways to spend a weekend afternoon.

 

Instagram Sundays / 01

It’s been difficult keeping up with blogging lately, so I’ve decided to start sharing some photos from Instagram at the end of each week ( + fingerscrossed + )

I put the flowers (by Kristen of Moon Canyon Design) I brought home from the Splendid party we threw with Bri a couple of weekends back in a mason jar on a table in our kitchen. I love how it brightens up the space, so perfect next to all my mirrors.

My gal pal Jamie brought me to Pygmy Hippo for the first time and I about had a heart attack. Cutest store seriously like E – V – E – R! I bought like a bazillion little things as gifts for now, later… and of course a thing or two for myself including the most amazing eyeball collar clips.

We went to happy hour at Buddah’s Belly with John + Jamie and I had this refreshing Gingerita. Oh, let’s not forget to mention the $7 crispy rice. Yum is right!

My life has been taken over by pom poms, but I’m not complaining. Mimosas + a video shoot with the Ban.do gals = best day ever. Can’t wait to share it with you all!

I love this photo I captured of Truman fast asleep, tucked beneath our new Too by Blu Dot for Target Woodgrain Duvet Cover.

Last weekend I was lucky enough to visit Anna Bond’s lovely Rifle Paper Co. store + studio space. A full post to come soon!

This article on J Crew and Jenna Lyons is a must read. I feel so lucky to work in a creative environment and with such talented folks. I love what I do so business and pleasure often mix – and it’s a good thing.

Snapchat is the shit. No, this isn’t just for tweens and nudes – and if you think so you probably need to grow up a little. I think this app is pretty genius. #seriously

Finally got to check out The Lash on Friday night and I’m totally digging it. A couple of my favorite humans ever, Andrew and Gabby, were on the ones and twos all night. Vinyl forever y’all! Who needs a computer when you have records?
