Can I get a TGIF? This week was a doozy. It started with emergency dog surgery and ended with a stolen wallet. Needless to say I'm more than ready for the weekend! I'm looking forward to a gratitude workshop tomorrow,... Continue reading

I'm not sure what's in the water in Minneapolis, but there's some killer style coming out of the Twin Cities! One of my favorite sources of inspiration from that chilly northern hotspot is the minimalist chic shop Parc Boutique. As... Continue reading

This isn't just a recipe post, it's a tale of kitchen adventure. It began when the new lifestyle brand Salt House contacted me. Founder and entertaining expert Sarah Ashley has created a line of fashion-forward aprons for the modern home... Continue reading

Even though Thanksgiving is a distinctly American holiday, I love the idea of incorporating a global influence into your holiday decor. Especially when so many unique decor products from around the world are the work of artisans who can use... Continue reading

In college I knew a girl who brought her own crystal stemware to parties. No matter what libations were in the offing—cheap beer usually—she'd sip it elegantly from a champagne flute. Back then I rolled my eyes at the affectation... Continue reading

I attended a housewarming party over the weekend, and I hate arriving empty-handed. I baked double batch of my best-ever chocolate chip cookies for the assembled crew—but as for the hostess? It's so tricky to guess what someone might like,... Continue reading

Phew, the weekend is finally here! Do you have any fun plans? I've got a full agenda, including an aromatherapy workshop and a housewarming party (aka an excuse to bake cookies)! I'm looking forward to having a bit of downtime... Continue reading

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? Cooking for a crowd is tricky to begin with, and that's before you factor in everyone's dietary restrictions and idiosyncracies. These days it's hard to keep track of who's dairy-free, who's gluten-free, who's sugar-free,... Continue reading

I don't run a lot of giveaways, so when I do it's gotta be for something really good. This one definitely falls into the category of stop-what-you're-doing-and-enter-right-now! I've been a huge fan of NUDE Skincare since the brand launched in... Continue reading

How many of us can recall, as little girls, owning a prized pair of patent leather Mary Janes? They were the sort of shoe you'd save for events like birthday parties or holidays, usually pairing them with tights or frilly... Continue reading

Did you catch this morning's post about my roadtrip to Joshua Tree with five friends and the GMC 2015 Yukon? As promised, here's part two! After an afternoon of exploring, we settled on a spot to get down to the... Continue reading

The desert has always had a special allure for me. Much like other wild locales—the ocean, the woods—the desert offers up a remarkable sense of calm, quiet, and peace. Out amongst the elements, beyond the wifi signal, you can't help... Continue reading

I simply cannot eat figs. When I was little, my mother (who is a botany professor and therefore ostensibly to be trusted in these matters) told me that wasps lay their eggs in figs. My impressionable young mind translated this... Continue reading

Contrary to what you might imagine, Los Angeles does get chilly in the winter. However it's a fickle kind of cold, the sort that starts with a snap in the morning and can either last all day or burn off... Continue reading

Hello. My name is Anne, and I am a spa-aholic. A facial at the Four Seasons is my standing birthday request, and a Saturday manipedi is my favorite way to recharge after a long week. Heck, when things get busy... Continue reading

I don't remember where I was the first time I met Camille Styles, but I do remember thinking, 'This girl is going places.' Camille is that rare combination of kind and generous, sweet and down-to-earth, yet utterly driven and determined... Continue reading

We're living in an era of mom clothes: slouchy pants, baggy knits, and comfy, flat-soled shoes. And when I say mom clothes, I mean it with the greatest of compliments. My mom has been rocking the oversized look for as... Continue reading

I know we're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, and indeed appearances can be deceiving. After all, how many times have you left a flashy restaurant feeling disappointed with the food, only to later enjoy an amazing... Continue reading

I couldn't be happier about this season's leanings towards big chunky knits. They're just right for sinking into when the winds pick up! And even better, I've seen tons of layering—for example topping an intarsia sweater with a swirling scarf,... Continue reading
