Celebrate 8

When a lover of the number 8 ( like myself ), has a child turning that beautifully curvy number, there is reason to celebrate!

Yesterday, my sweet firstborn Kiya, turned 8! She woke up to 8 giant balloons and later opened 8 presents. I even made sure that my wardrobe was festive for her special day by wearing this fancy 8 shirt! 

Happy 8th year of life Kiya! I love you!!

I was watching The Devil Wears Prada last night and began dreaming of the day when I'd be able to walk into a closet full of Chanel, Jimmy Choo, and McQueen. Or, get the hook-up like Andy did! It may be a while before that full closet comes to fruition, but piece by piece it will be fun to build. And, when building a "house" it's best to have a good!

Last week while I was in San Francisco, I decided to pop into Zara. In the store I came across this clutch with #FASHIONCODE printed on it. I came to the conclusion that they must be following our blog! There was no choice but to purchase it!

A couple days later when I got home, my husband and I went out for a date. I made sure to incorporate my new clutch in with my look. What do you think? Are you following our fashion code? If not, click that Bloglovin' button and start now! You can also follow us on Facebook here.

Green With Envy

A few weeks ago, I road tripped to Cali. It was so much fun, and I have much more to share from my trip! 

There were a couple of nights that I spent just outside San Fran, and rode the BART into the city. On my ride in, a girl got on and sat next to me. She had jungle green hair. I looked and her and said, "Your hair is amazing!" She wasn't thoroughly convinced as she had just gotten it done the day before, and was still adjusting to it. I insisted to her that it was and we parted ways. 

Since then I haven't been able to get her hair out of my head, so I decided it was time for me to indulge as well! After all, I've never had green hair!

Taking in consideration the health of my hair and the happiness of my husband, I decided not to bleach my hair out entirely it before I put the green on. Instead, I decided just to put the green over the top of the brown I already had. I knew this way it would be more subtle, but still give me the pop of green that I desired. I'm loving it! What do you think? Would you try a fun color in your hair?

Bikes on the Beach

Last fall, I went to visit din in DC. While I was there I rented a bike to ride around the city. I think it had been about 14 years since I had ridden a bike up to that point! I found it to be such a blast that when I came across a bike rental on the Venice Beach boardwalk, I had to take advantage! 

I got a trailer for my bike to tow my youngest along, while my mom and my older daughter rode tandum. It was so much fun! When we finished, we relaxed on the beach and my girls splashed in the ocean. 

I purchased the lip color I'm wearing in Hollywood, a couple days before we came here. I'm in love with the shade of it! Between that, my suit, shoes and bike, I'd say they're a pretty bright and beautiful color combo against the beach! Do you like it?

Venice Beach

It's no secret that I love the city, but right behind that is my love for the beach! I can't begin to describe what I feel inside when I'm by palm trees and's just perfect. So, Venice Beach was a must for me on my California adventure!

I chose bright causal clothes for my afternoon on the boardwalk. I really loved how I felt in this look! What do you think?
