fashion / October 30, 2013


There comes a time in every person’s life when they have to step outside their comfort zone and try something new.

I don’t know how or why it happened, but UGG Australia sent me a really lovely email asking me if I wanted to bring my girls to their new Fashion Valley store (7007 Friars Rd, all you San Diego peeps) for a little shopping spree.… Read More

Crafts excluded.

One of the things about the new house that is taking me the longest to get used to is the size of the closets.

Let’s just say I moved from a home that was built when people were finally starting to appreciate features like storage and shelving to a home that was built just after the Great Depression and owning three pairs of shoes was considered a luxury.… Read More

Hi friends.

These are a Few of My Favorite Things / January 7, 2013


I have to be honest here and admit that I have never listened to a single Justin Beiber song.
