Sunset Farm Picnic

A few weeks ago, Blake and I were invited to our friend Julie’s farm in Jackson in Amador County. It was jaw-droppingly beautiful at sunset, the perfect way to kick off spring! We mashed around the property on a golf cart before we hopped off…

Guide to Los Angeles | Silverlake + Venice

Los Angeles holds a special place for me. Although I grew up in Sacramento and now call it home again, LA is where my parents met, where I was born, and where I went to college and stayed for a few years afterward. After…

Birthday Thoughts

Today I turn 29, the last year of my twenties! I’m suddenly greeted by a flashback to my 27th birthday, where a friend jokingly commented on Facebook “two more pretty years!” Ha, hope that’s not true and I don’t turn into a gargoyle suddenly.…


Clean, Colorful Eating: Superfood Bowls

This past weekend was a rarity as far as weekends go. I achieved that illusive balance of getting things done and enjoying myself. By Saturday night, I’d accomplished two loads of laundry, had a long, insightful talk with my dad (who lives overseas, so…

Style Report: Midtown Farmers Market

Last Saturday, I hit the Midtown Farmers Market with my camera in tow to photograph stylish market goers. Judging by the parade of fashionable strollers, Midtowners likely stepped out on their porches that morning, inhaled the sweet jasmine air, did a twirl in the…
