Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend, because I sure did! I attended a leadership conference that overlapped with my birthday. Getting to ring in my 33rd year with over 100 new friends from all walks of life... Continue reading

I learned something about myself recently: I’m an expert at thinking myself out of fun. You see, I’ve always been a smart cookie. And while it’s certainly served me well, like any character trait it also has its downside. Ask... Continue reading

What’s your exercise personality? Do you crave the solitude of a pre-dawn run? The charged hum of the gym? The serenity of an evening yoga practice? At some time or another in my life I’ve done it all, but lately... Continue reading

Whoa you guys. Two recipes in one week. I know, it's unprecedented! But I really wanted to sneak this cocktail into the mix as it's perfect for Mother's Day brunch. Heck, I even named it the Mom Jeans—cracking myself up... Continue reading

You know the saying 'stop and smell the roses'? I'm more of a 'stop and shove your face into the roses' girl. I cannot pass a flowering bush or tree without burying my nose into the petals and inhaling the... Continue reading

Something I talk about quite frequently here on the blog is shopping with intention. Engaging in trends and having fun with fashion, yes, but doing so with a mind towards longevity rather than flash-in-the pan impulse. I'm so grateful to... Continue reading

I'm sorry to say that on the last few rounds of maternal gift giving, I've bombed quite mightily. Fit has been off, style not quite right, or (eep!) I flaked altogether. My mom has been super gracious about my recent... Continue reading

Oh hey! That's my house up there! Isn't she a charmer? She's a Craftsman style bungalow, typical of my east LA neighborhood, and I'm awfully fond of her despite her worse-for-wear appearance. And even though I rent, I'm lucky that... Continue reading

You know me. I'm not one to jump on fashion bandwagons. So when suede jackets starting popping up on the street style scene, I appreciated them from afar but dismissed them as not for me. Suede is so temperamental, after... Continue reading

One glance at my Instagram will tell you that I love waffles. They're the special guest star of my healthy breakfast routine, providing a welcome break from eggs or porridge. Plus because they're easier to manipulate than pancakes (no precarious... Continue reading

On the whole I'm a pretty healthy eater. I make most of my meals at home, avoid processed junk, and never met a veggie I couldn't love. My biggest obstacle to eating well 100% of the time? The lack of... Continue reading

Hello, my name is Anne, I'm a pattern phobe. There are exceptions, of course. In my closet and around the house, I hoard stripes like it's my job. When I'm feeling daring, I'll do polka dots. Yet those two prints... Continue reading
