Breakfast on Repeat | Acai Bowls

Guys, I can’t stop making these Acai bowls.  We’ve been making them for breakfast nonstop, but I have to stop myself from making them at night as a dessert.  They’re that good! I remember I used to love visiting California and going straight to get an Acai bowl.  I never even thought about trying to make one myself – I just though of it as something I could only get in California.  Now there are…

Boys + Arrows | Kauai

Since it’s the first day of spring and I’m itching for summer, I decided to celebrate with another swimsuit post! Going in to spring/summer this year, I have to say that one of my top favorite swim brands has become Boys + Arrows.  Not only are their suits SO cute with killer prints and cuts, but they fit so well and so comfortable.  Just the way you want a swimsuit to fit – kind of like…

ViX Swimwear | Kauai

Guys, if you want a quality suit that you know will be a flattering fit, you can’t go wrong with ViX.  I like to call it “grown up” swimwear, because it’s so nice and flattering on so many body types, and you’ll have them forever.  Here are a few shots from our trip to Kauai at an amazing water fall, taken by Jessica Janae.  (By they way, she is so much fun to work with!)  My favorite part about…

An Outfit for a Rainy Day

Growing up in Seattle, I have a large soft spot in my heart for rain.  Combined with my love of all things Jeffrey Campbell, I was pretty excited when my little sister found these rain boots.  As our friend Kaitlyn said, “They look expensive”…but they’re not.  Keep my feet dry without being clunky and heavy, and I still feel styled.  Bring on the spring showers ;).  I’m also kind of in love with this Madewell…

A Beach Birthday | Amuse Society

A couple nights ago, Blake and I went to one of our favorite beach spots to celebrate our friend Poppy’s birthday.  It got a little windy and chilly, so we hightailed it to Ruby’s for shakes before the sun set.  I love how much later it’s staying light after daylight savings! How cute is this romper from Amuse Society?  They’ve got “Beach Vida Bling” figured out. Amuse Society Romper ~ Free People Necklace ~ D’Blanc Sunnies…

Chipotle Chicken-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

The other night, I had a surplus of organic sweet potatoes and wanted to find a new way to use them all up.   I’d had this recipe saved to try for Healthy Chipotle Chicken-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (I can’t remember where from, whoops).  I love that it’s Paleo and Whole30 (if you leave off the cheese, which it’s totally good either way!) Blake and I both loved it, and if you’re currently Paleo or on Whole30…

Nicaragua Clean Water Project | People Water

I remember getting the call from my close friend, Bronson Christensen. It was in the fall of 2012 and I was gearing up for the coming ski season. Bronson called to tell me about a company our friends were starting and asked me if I wanted to get involved by endorsing the brand as a ski athlete. “People Water was founded on the simple idea that the easier it is to give, the more people…

Rainy Day Hike | Bommer Canyon

It was a little chilly and rainy here, so for the most part Blake and I had a lazy weekend inside.  We cooked, watched House of Cards, and left all the windows open to hear the rain.  But by last night we were feeling restless, and I was dying to be outside and active.  When we lived in Utah, we would always just drive up a canyon and start hiking, but here in Orange County…

Dinner Out | Cleobella

Blake and I eat out…a lot.  I love it when it’s just the two of us, because I feel like it’s our time.  When I make dinner at home, I’m usually caught up in what I’m making, or we have the TV on, or one of us is on our phone.  But when we go out somewhere, it’s like there’s an unspoken rule that we put our phones away and pay attention to each other.…

Sunset Surf | The Best Sweater

Lately, Blake’s been really determined to improve his surfing abilities.  If there are waves when he finishes work, he’ll come grab me and we’ll hurry over to the beach to see what he can catch before the sun goes down.  I usually just post up on a blanket or a life guard tower and watch him.  (Not to sound like a bum, but it takes a lot warmer weather/water and perfect waves for me to attempt to…
