My fabulous friend Matthew

{Here is my most fabulous friend Matthew Chaves, we met in Santa Barbara at Brooks Institute of Photography and became insta-besties. He now lives in New York and I miss him dearly. Here we are sharing a much needed gossip sess, kayak on lake tahoe and a cig.}

My Dream Office

In our new house, I was very excited to have an office. Though we do have two spare bedrooms, they are currently guest rooms with 3 twin beds and not an office, unfortunately. But in the future, I plan on having a very snazzy office that I will keep a million times cleaner than husband's office (which is a free standing "shed" in our backyard and cluttered with coffee cups + cans of PBR. bleh. ) Here is a photo I found on the blog Made by Girl and I love the feel of this person's office plus I think I spy a Beatles painting {click photo to enlarge} on the armour filled with neatly organized stuff! :)

Inspiration: le frenchie

Inspiration to me: Great photography. Cute outfits. Bold eye brows. Fucking fabulous hair. Anything that makes me stop and look for more than 10 seconds. 
From now on, every Monday I'm going to do a post about inspiration. Since Sunday night/ Monday morning I tend to do a lot of cruising on fashion blogs, I end up with ample inspiration for the week to come. This week's inspirational post is frenchie themed and is from Le petit petit's blog. Enjoy!

the LA state of mind

The past few years, I've been especially careful with my skin. I used to hate hats because, let's face it, I have fucking fabulous hair! But, I have suuuuuper sensitive skin so I've embraced the straw fedora for summer and try to seriously consider other hat trends as well. And for some reason, I've fallen in love with my LA ball cap. 
Am I from Los Angeles, you might ask? No. 
Am I a baseball fan? Nope. 
The only reason I can think of as loving this hat is that, to me, it's a statement. It says "I'm tougher than you think" in two letters. But maybe it also says "I'm tough AND I shop on Robertson Blvd." and that's when I realized it must be the frenchie in me! Oui, oui! I'm a jerk and I'm fabulous! The perfect statement for moi :)

Booze Cruise Tahoe Style

 This last Saturday was my friend Lo's birthday and since she's only been on the lake with kayaks, we decided the best way to celebrate her birthday was to cruise lake Tahoe in style and with cocktails! We hopped on the Tahoe Gal for their brunch cruise to Fleur de Lac and had so much fun!!!
