I want $10 Million a year, for the rest of my life.

Let me get this straight. You think that your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands; and your plan, is to *blackmail* this person?

In the mood- for a southern bbq

Someone was reheating ribs for lunch today. Insert Anchorman:












Anyway, IF it was possible for me to host or attend a bbq (which I clearly can not since I don’t  A. have a grill or B. live in the south anymore) this is what it would look like….

a million reasons why I miss fall and love pumpkin

Long story long, I moved to California last September and I missed Fall. Winter too. I’m not happy about it because I feel like a part of me is missing.
I also know that Summer basically just started and its 90 degrees and sunny everyday here in sunny California and those are the kinds of days people dream of. But for me, I miss pumpkin everything, crisp leaves falling, warm cocoa, pumpkin ales, fires, scarves, cinnamon and cuddling weather.

Rustic Romantic

Pale roses in a mint julep cup adorn your antique mantel; chintz drapery flutters over your windows. Your favorite pieces tend toward a palette of shabby whites and warm neutrals. You love to ensconce yourself at your British ladies’ writing desk, where you nibble on pastel macarons and sip on dainty cups of tea.

Your Design Inspirations: Rachel Ashwell; Cath Kidston.

Make It Work: Add a bit of well-worn patina to your furnishings by artfully scratching and chipping the paint.


Add a little glamour to the rustic-romantic look by creating a cabana-style structure outdoors. Pile on the pillows and hang a chandelier (or three) if you’re game—your guests will never want to leave.

just breathe

You may not be able to the control the world, but you can control your breathing. And that alone could change your world.

– Unknown Yoga Instructor

My life has been more stressful lately than ever. And the reasons behind the stress are not exactly things I can control, but they are things I can work on finding solutions for.
Breathing helps….

My Technique

Take 3 very deep breaths.

With each breath keep sucking in just a little more air in- count to 8 seconds.

Then I let it out slowly- counting to 12 seconds.

Wait 5 seconds before next big breath.

That alone changed my day.

I hope this makes you laugh as much as I am- this is no joke. The rain is a dangerous thing out here in LA!

Take shelter everyone!!

Santa is coming!

It’s that time of year again, the BEST time of the year- CHRISTMAS! I belive that a tree lighting is a pretty siginifact way of announcing that Christmas is here, Santa is coming, and most importanlty Jesus‘s Birthday 🙂
