Salon Row Grand Opening

Salon Row Salon Suites Long Beach
Salon Row is officially open! Tenants actually were able to move in and start taking clients October 1st! In case you missed it, I talked about Salon Row in this post. It’s the reason I’ve been MIA from the blog the last few months (which I plan to change now that the space is done/open!!) Basically, we partnered with friends Louisa Lawless and Ever Chapa to plan/design a salon suites concept. It’s a place where…

Romy & Piper’s 2nd Birthday

2nd Birthday Party Toddler Twins Pizza Party
It’zza Piperomy Pizza Party!!! I actually think it was my nephew who came up with the “pizza party” theme. Months ago, he commented about how their names sound like “pepperoni” together, so we should have a pizza party for their 2nd birthday. The girls conveniently love pizza, so that’s what we did! Pizza As soon as we decided on a pizza party I knew I wanted to get Sgt. Pepperoni’s. It’s our favorite pizza and…

What I’m Into This Week

Most comfortable pajamas | Show me your mumu
The best pajamas. Ok, I’ve tried so hard to be a classy grown up and wear real pajamas. But every single time I try, I end up back in my old t-shirts (or usually old men’s t-shirts! and comfy underwear). I get hot at night, I hate feeling constricted, and hate stiff materials. This is literally the first pair of pajamas that I would choose OVER that. I love them so much and want SMYMM…

Toddler Sleep Environment

We’ve always been huge on the babies’ sleep environment, and I think it’s made all the difference. It’s almost like there’s a formula that we know will work to get them to sleep, and I love that! Here are some things we cannot do without in the babies’ room: Sound machines – We take these sound machines EVERYWHERE. The girls LOVE them. I have recommended this exact one to SO many people who have also…

Outfits on Summer Staycation

Monarch Beach | Cleobella | Show Me Your Mumu
This last week we got to stay at Monarch Beach Resort and it was so much fun. We spent most of our time at the Monarch Bay Beach Club, which they just renovated. It’s super nice but still has that laid-back California beach vibe, so I never felt like I had to dress fancier than I’m used to. Scroll down for details on the outfits I packed! xx Jen

Trovata | Beek Loon Sandals | Ripped Levis
GUYS – my current FAVORITE pair of jeans is on sale right now – almost half off, which makes them only $49! I just ordered myself a second pair. They are a higher rise but like, control top…ha! Like they hold me in better than any other jeans I have. I ordered a size up (26) because they don’t have a lot of stretch. But 26 might actually be my proper size these days…it’s an…

My Favorite Lawn Games

Sundry Loungwear | Favorite Lawn Games
I love games in general, but I especially love me a good lawn game. It’s such a fun way to be outside and catch up with friends. Lawn games have become a little less mellow/relaxing since the girls came along, but we actually have fun navigating them with little ones, too! Keep scrolling for some of my very favorites, and order them in time to play at your BBQ next weekend! (If you’re not having…
