Christmas in California

One of my favorite things about living in California is that I can travel to so many different places in a short amount of time. I spent Christmas with my family at my home in Los Angeles enjoying the lovely 70 degree weather.

My first stop for my holiday travels was in Malibu to visit some other family members. Saying that Malibu is beautiful is an understatement. Every time I see the ocean, it takes my breath away. So, I just had to take a little stroll down to the beach when the sun started setting…


One thing about me is that I am a horrible packer. When it came time to pack my things to come down to Southern California, I threw a few clothes in a bag and hoped for the best. However, I did manage to pack some of my favorites from PB&J Boutique.

I realized that my shoes were not the most practical for walking on the beach, but it was totally worth it!

After I left Malibu, my family took me on a surprise trip to Las Vegas! (Second trip in one month, but every visit is still just as exciting!)



For all of my Christmas travels, I had to bring along my favorite new travel bag by Atenti!

If you haven’t checked out the Atenti Overnight bags, I highly suggest you do! I got so many compliments on mine as I carried it through the casino. They are so unique and easy to bring along on any of your adventures.

I hope all of your holiday travels were amazing as well!

Thank you for reading and happy new year!

Who Loves Cookies???

I love cookies. Like, LOVE! Who doesn’t? Every December, I bake cookies for my family and friends. I always make my famous “heaven cookies,” Lemon Gems, and Sugar Cookies. For fun, I’ll usually add in a few unique cookie recipes like Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate and Red Velvet Cake Balls. Last year, I had to travel by plane to see my family during the holidays. On the way to the airport, I realized I forgot all 100+ cookies in my refrigerator! My friend and her family enjoyed them and now I’m sure they expect a special cookie package.  ;) Don’t worry Darlene I won’t forget about you this year!


It usually takes all day to bake my cookies! Last year, I got a beautiful Kitchen Aid stand mixer for a gift (thanks hubby) and that’s one great cookie mixer. My heaven cookies are my most requested cookie recipe; named as such because my sister-in-law says they taste like heaven :)


Heaven Cookies

4 1/2 cups flour                                                     2 packages (3.4oz) vanilla pudding

2 teaspoons baking soda                                    4 eggs

2 cups butter, softened                                       2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar                         2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cups white sugar                                            2 cups dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Sift flower and baking soda together. In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in pudding mix. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls or cookie scoop onto un-greased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Edges should be lightly golden brown.

You can play with the bake time a little…I like the cookies to be a bit soft in the middle. They taste like delicious cookie dough! It makes approximately 4 dozen depending on the size of cookies you make. I have a dairy allergy so I usually use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter instead of real butter. It doesn’t have much dairy in the ingredients and I think it makes my heaven cookies extra fluffy. Just a little tip :)

Hozier – Artist Spotlight

The cold, rainy weather in Northern California has finally made an appearance, and I couldn’t be enjoying it more. On days like these, I love to stay inside and listen to music. Sometimes I find myself playing the same songs over and over, but when you’re cooped up inside, it becomes the perfect excuse to try out some new songs. A new artist I wanted to introduce to you all is Hozier.

Andrew Hozier, Byrne a.k.a. Hozier is an Irish musician with a distinct sound. His album “Hozier” released in 2014 is a mix of blues, R&B and soul. He is recently known for his EP Take Me to Church released in 2013 but his talent goes far beyond this single.

As I went through the album I found myself falling for every song. Each is a completely new sound and worth taking a listen. Here are a few of my favorites from the album. Let me know what you think! Hozier has made it into my daily rotation and I’m hooked.

Viva Las Tigerlily

When I was five years old, my dad took me to Las Vegas for the first time and we went to every arcade within a five mile radius of our hotel. Growing up in Southern California made me only four hours away from Vegas and I have gone at least once a year since that very first trip.


Everything I knew about Vegas changed when I turned 21 just a couple of weeks ago. My parents took myself and two friends for a weekend trip before Thanksgiving. We walked around the casinos, did some shopping and enjoyed the weather during the day.


The real fun started when my friends and I wanted to enjoy the nightlife. Because the temperature dropped significantly at night, yet the clubs remained warm, finding an outfit and shoes to wear that were comfortable, stylish and warm was posing to be a challenge. 

Nevertheless, I found the perfect vegas outfit, the Jumeaux Onesie by Tigerlily. This romper has long sleeves that kept me warm while I walked around at night, yet it was still light enough that I was comfortable in the clubs. Plus, wearing a romper was such a good idea, nothing was going to stop me from dancing all night long.


It’s no secret that I am a clumsy person, so when I am wearing high heels, I tend to look like a baby giraffe learning how to walk. Heels are a necessity in Vegas, but I knew I was not going to be lasting all night in a pair of five inch heels. Then I found the Sophisticated Lady heels by Seychelles. I’m not lying when I say that I danced the night away in these chunky heels, they were so easy to walk in and I never had to worry about keeping a spare pair of flats in my clutch.


I had so much fun dressing up in my day and night clothes while I was in Vegas. Here are some of the other outfits that I wore during my trip:

Nail Talk: Essie’s Collection


The changing of seasons calls for a polish revamp. Just like sweaters need to be rotated, so does polish. It is so easy to grab the same color over and over. I wanted to share a few favorites from Essie’s Collection.

The first, Bikini So Teeny is an adorable cornflower blue. I saw this color all over the runway this season. Designers from Elie Saab who incorporated it into beaded dresses, to Ralph Lauren who did several suit separates. This color is everywhere! It is a bright baby blue, which can seem more of a spring color, however, when paired with greys and jewel tones it translates to an edgy winter color. I wore this color with a Rails button down and paired it with grey pants and the Fleece Funnel Jacket by Heather. I finally broke out of my comfort zone of pinks and embraced the blue. I feared that this polish would take several coats due to the light color. However, two coats did it. The first application gave a light blue coat with small sparkles. On the second coat, the color was much darker and the sparkles were very subtle.

The next, Penny talk is a shimmering copper metallic. I love the idea of incorporating metallics into an ensemble. The color is a fresh, sophisticated alternative to chunky sparkle polishes. My favorite thing about this color is only one coat is needed! Great, for last minute touch ups before heading out the door. I find the copper color play Continue reading

Holiday Travel Plans…

I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving! (Next week!) If you’re traveling and looking for the perfect bag, these Atenti bags are perfect for a long weekend getaway.

Thanksgiving trips always seem to be a quick getaway with the holiday falling on a Thursday.  Wherever your holiday travels take you: the beach, the snow, the desert, or the city, this bag will serve you well as a carry on or as your pack all. My personal favorites are the faux fur bags; very soft and very lux looking. Why should you have a boring black suitcase like everyone else? :) When not traveling, it would be the perfect bag to take to the gym.

These bags would also be a great holiday gift idea. Only about 5 more weeks until Christmas. It’s crazy how quick the holiday season came upon us!
