Girls’ Night | My Favorite Things

We are finally getting settled in to our new place, so I decided it was time to have a girls’ night.  My brow-genius friend Sarajane offers brow parties (so genius!) where you can actually invite some of your best friends over, and everyone can get their brows done together! THE GIFTS Of course, everyone got their brows done – threaded and spot filling/shaping with Sarajane’s extensions.  Because I love her brow work so much, I…

Eyebrow Extensions | Brows by Sarajane

First of all, let me tell you – I am SO picky about my eyebrows.  If I was only allowed to use one makeup item, it would be my brow powder (I use this with this, everyday!)  I started off with this massive unibrow as a kid, and due to over-waxing in the 90’s and laser hair removal in the 200o’s, my once caterpillar eyebrows were left pretty thin and patchy, and refusing to grow…

Girls’ Night Out | h2blow [blow dry bar]

Whenever I’m in Utah, it’s usually for a short amount of time and Blake and I are running around like crazy trying to work while seeing our friends and family.  My family is also so busy with their own crazy lives, but it means the world to me that they find a way to accommodate me every time!  This last trip, I decided to plan a little girls’ night ahead of time with my sisters to…

Tea With Me

I’m a dork, but when I envision the person I want to be, it somehow always involves sipping tea throughout the day.  I love tea, but I also love the process and atmosphere that comes with it.  I just want to be the kind of girl that offers people tea when they come over, and as a result has long meaningful talks about life with her nearest and dearest.  So basically, if I ever offer…

“Legit” Yogi Equipment

If you’re a legit yogi, or if you’re just starting out and want to pretend to be legit someday, get a Manduka mat ;).  Blake and I fall somewhere in the middle of that scale, and I’m so lucky to have a husband who’s down for anything with me – including yoga.  These pictures are from a fun morning we had shooting in Manhattan Beach with Manduka and Hazel & Pine. Manduka PRO Yoga Mat (Metallic) | Manduka GO…

Drybar | A Girls’ Kind of Morning

This morning my good friend Tiffany and I started out our day with a session at The Drybar in Newport Beach.  If you haven’t heard of Drybar before, it’s a pretty amazing little place where they specialize in blowouts.  No cutting or coloring, just a great shampoo and style for $40.  For me, it’s kind of like a dream come true, considering blow drying my hair is one of my least favorite things to do…

SKINVOLVE | Body Skincare

I’ve had a few people ask me if the things I post are really things that I like and buy/use myself.  The answer is always YES…so listen up!  In the past, I’ve tried a million things to take care of my face, but have never give much thought to the rest of my skin.  Lately as I’m getting older (yikes!) I’ve been looking for something to ensure some skin longevity ;).  Guys, I am LOVING…

Whole 30: My Results

I am both excited and hesitant to write this post, as I’m not sure how best to put it into words.  There are so many opinions and methods surrounding diet, health, and wellness, and I definitely don’t think there is any one way that works for every one.  All of our bodies are different, and require different care and attention. That being said, I want to talk to you about a specific method called Whole30.  …
