My Version of a Yogurt Parfait

Although the weather isn’t exactly feeling like fall here in Southern California, the fact that school has started means fall is here!  I remember the way the first Saturday after school started felt – so much more valuable than it did during summer.  So, to kick off this SUPER valuable Saturday, I’m… Eating one of my favorite breakfasts/bedtime snacks…(sometimes when I’m trying to be healthy I trick myself into pretending it’s a dessert!)  My version of a…

Perfect Summer Dessert: Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries

One of Blake’s favorite desserts happens to be panna cotta, but for some reason I always assumed it was difficult to make.  I finally got brave and asked his mom (Becky) for her recipe, and to my surprise, it wasn’t hard at all!  I’ve made it a few times now, and each time Blake begs me to double the recipe.  I think that means he likes it!  If you’re looking for a delicious, summery dessert…

Cleobella’s Fall Line + Party in Malibu with The Zoe Report

Last Thursday, Sydney and I were able to attend Cleobella’s Fall Preview and Gifting event, co-hosted by The Zoe Report at the Malibu Beach House.  We were so excited to be a part of such an amazing event, and to be introduced to Cleobella’s fall line!  We learned about Cleobella’s philanthropic efforts within the Balinese community, visited with editors from The Zoe Report, heard some amazing music, and had some great Balinese food and drinks.…

My Second Favorite Salmon Recipe

Yep, you read that title right – this is my SECOND favorite salmon recipe.  My first favorite salmon recipe is a story for another day ;).  In all seriousness, this is a really delicious, super simple, and healthy way to make salmon, and so far it’s been a hit with my dinner guests!  I’ve had a good amount of people ask for the recipe, so I decided I should probably give it a post. In recent years,…

A Look at Flynn Skye

Some recent Flynn Skye additions to my closet have made that daily decision of what to wear too easy ;).  Flynn Skye pieces are designed to be day to night, day at the beach to dinner out with friends, or brunch with girlfriends to an evening summer wedding.  Easy, breezy summer pieces that I have been living in since I got them.  I especially have loved packing some of them on recent trips – so light…

MZ Wallace | Metro Tote

It’s a gym bag, a weekend bag, a tote bag, a diaper bag, a computer bag, or an extra large purse…you name it!  I love the material – it’s made out of MZ Wallace’s signature Quilted Oxford Nylon.  Although the bag looks great, pictures don’t do it justice.  You kind of have to feel it, and then I promise you’ll fall in love ;).  And to sweeten the deal – the bag is water/stain resistant, and…
