This past week has been a whirlwind! I finally got to slow down this weekend, spending it in Newport laying on the beach and eating copious amounts of Valentine’s Day candy. Speaking of Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend got me these leather Sk8-His that I’ve been wanting foreverrr and I’ve been wearing them nonstop. They seriously make any outfit instantly cooler and I’m loving pairing them with girlier pieces like this sack of a dress I found at Goodwill a few years ago and recently hacked off the bottom.

Another item I haven’t taken off is my vivofit by Garmin. It’s essentially a Fitbit and tracks my steps, as well as my sleep (and tells time!). The irony lies in the fact that it was supposed to help me be healthier, when in reality, it only makes me painfully aware of how unhealthy I actually am.

These photos were taken on President’s Day, when Esther, our friend Becca, and I decided to hit up some of the most Instagrammed landmarks in LA, and of course our first stop was the Paul Smith building on Melrose. I actually can’t believe I’ve never taken a photo here before, but we more than made up for it with the insane photoshoot that ensued (laying on the concrete was involved). Hope everyone had a wonderful and restful President’s Day weekend!

Valentine’s Day Wishlist 2015

ValentinesWishlist-012015 is flying by, I can’t believe it’s already February, which of course means Valentine’s Day! I know a lot of people dread the imposing February 14th and say it’s just a stupid, commercial holiday, but so what? In a relationship or happily single, I don’t understand how anyone could be miserable on a day all about love and all things pink! Whether you’re spending the day with your babe or catching 50 Shades of Grey with your girlfriends, enjoy the day and celebrate being surrounded by people you love! These are a few of the things I’ve been craving, plus a few things that are just fun and festive that I definitely wouldn’t mind having. Pass this wishlist onto your man for a bit of non-jewelry inspiration or treat yourself. After all, you deserve it for (sort of) sticking to your resolutions for this long (right?).
