Travel Diary: La La Land

I just LOVE me some California! You can go anytime of year and have an amazing time. I am in love with the San Francisco Bay Area, but I have a thing for sun and palm trees. LA LA Land is the spot for just that! I have visited L.A. a few times, and each time I have a different experience. I like to sightsee when I travel. Each place I visit has something cool and different to offer.

Outings and Outfits: Seattle Edition

Of course lately I have A LOT of time on my hands. Either with job searching, networking and enjoying my new surroundings. I LOVE going to Seattle and exploring and just being in the city. I don’t have the luxury of being only 15mins from a major city like I did back in MD (Downtown DC was only 15mins away), but I don’t mind the drive to Seattle. I always make it an all day outing when I go to the city. Since I am new there are tons to do and see. I still have A LOT of things and places to go to and check off my list.

I’m a COWBOYS Fan but Congrats to the Seahawks

Still a little hurt it wasn’t my COWBOYS who made it to the SuperBowl, but it was a great win for the Seattle Seahawks. Their first SuperBowl win ever! Looks like I moved here at the right time. The city was crazy with hardcore fans. I went down to the city to check out the parade and I even got a glimpse of the trophy. It was a nice and orderly celebration for the team and the 12th man, the FANS.

Polka Dot Gift Bag

I know I can’t be the only person who feels like they are celebrating someone’s birthday like EVERY month. SO, I decided to get a little creative in my gift giving. I did this gift bag during the holiday season because I’m not too big on wrapping gifts when people are just going to rip it open anyway (for adults rather). This is a great idea to show someone how special they are not just for what inside but that you took the time to do a little something extra 😉

“Chalk it Up” Flower Pots

Hey ya’ll! What better way to start the new year than with a new DIY project! YAY!!!  Yes the winter is still going strong (stronger in so areas more than others) but spring is just around the corner. I have been seeing this idea all over Pinterest and what a great idea to welcome in your Spring Blooms! Don’t limit yourself to just flowers. You can grow your own fresh herbs or use them for storage. Don’t forget to have some chalk handy so you can write labels or cute doodles! 🙂

Lovin’ Loafers!

I absolutely love wearing flats and lately loafers have been my favorite! I like wearing heels too but I’m a chill laid back kind of gal. So I’m more than likely in a cute pair of flats.  I’m on the hunt for some new loafers to add to my shoe collection (especially a leopard pair since my old ones are well…..OLD)
