I just returned from the sweetest girlfriend getaway in Sedona. But not just any girlfriend getaway. Most of these ladies were founding members of the USC Sirens, my all-female college a capella group. Although we live in many different states, we've remained close over the years. That's what singing, recording, touring and performing together will do for you! I've been wanting to visit Sedona for quite some time - not only to witness its breathtaking natural beauty, but to soak up the good vibes. As you may know, the town is known as a spiritual mecca due to the area's... Continue reading

Hi Sara - I'm so glad you reached out! Your struggles sound very similar to my own. I'm glad to hear you're still full of hope and belief that your baby will come. It's so very important. If you ever want to talk more, I'm just an email away. Lots of love and baby dust to you and your husband! xo
I do see some similarities to the Secret, you're right :) Thank you for your kind thoughts and words Kelly Jayne! xo
Well thank you Adam - so nice of you!

Perfection! Do you happen to know what bush the bottom photo is? I love the pattern of the leaves. Almost looks like a photography motion trick?

Spring in February? So it seems. With every passing year, Washington winters are becoming shorter and shorter. The last few weeks have been absolutely gorgeous. Swallows are sweetly whistling me awake in the morning. Magnolia trees are blossoming around our neighborhood. And the sunshine has been radiant - blessing us with welcomed warmth and light. Inspired by our recent golden rays, enjoy a few of my sunny Etsy Faves ....

Thanks Jessica! Can't go wrong with a simple black cat-eye. I couldn't find a Warby Parker pair I liked either! Hope you find a fun pair with Coastal! xo

Thanks girl! I bet you look super cute in glasses. Next lunch date, we should both wear ours ;) xo

I know, I just LOVE photographing fog! :) xo
Happy to have you back Melinda! :) xo
I think 15 was my age for contacts too! During the years prior, I'd just not wear glasses, because who wants to wear glasses in middle school? I remember always having to sit up front so I could see the white board. Thinking back, I can't believe I just went without anything for all those years - I was/am so blind! ;)

Did you get made fun of at that age? I totally did - but little did those bullies know how glasses would become cool again 20 years later! I hated wearing them back in the day and couldn't wait to get contacts ;) I love the half brown, half clear ones! Bet you look super geek chic. xo

Thanks lady! The black ones are so light, I forget I'm wearing them. Like right now! ;) xo

A raclette grill for two? How darling! I've never seen one that small. Totally perfect for a home date.

Walnuts - I never thought of adding nuts before. Excellent idea! xo

Yay for new glasses! It was TIME. Now that I'm working from home, I wear glasses a lot more than my contacts. I've had my clear vintage specs for a couple of years now. I still love them, but a girl needs to accessorize! Plus, they were quite heavy and I could only wear them for half a day before getting a headache. Probably doesn't help that I have insanely thick blind-as-a-bat lenses. Right when I announced to the universe I needed new frames - the eye gods, aka Coastal.com, graciously offered me two new pairs as a Style Ambassador.... Continue reading

Woo hoo! The shop looks FABULOUS Rachel. I seriously love every single item. I meticulously went through each category page and scrolled down to the very bottom, to make sure I didn't miss a thing. Can't wait to get some friends birthday prezzies through you this year. Congrats my friend! xo

I really don't see how anyone could not love cheese drizzled over anything, to be perfectly honest. Unless you're vegan I suppose. Thanks for sharing how you eat raclette in France! I hope it becomes more popular here in the States :) xo

Ha, I guess this round-up of ingredients is pretty American, huh? ;) Is raclette popular where you are in France?
Toggle Commented Feb 13, 2015 on How To Throw A Raclette Party at HAPPINESS IS...
Totally agree. So simple - so good! xo
