In the kitchen with Bea

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of having a dinner created by my great friend Bea. I am always amazed, and really jealous, of her gourmet cooking skills but am always more then happy to be on the receiving end of the deal. This weekend was no exception. God knows I will never be sharing any of my own recipes (there is no such thing), so after receiving a few recipe requests because of my photo on instagram, I invited her to share it here.

And Voilà!…Flourless Dark Chocolate Lava Cake with Molten Maple Almond Butter. I am seriously still drooling.



We topped it off with a little vanilla gelato which went so well with the rich dark chocolate and complemented the saltiness of the almond butter. PERFECTION!

Pattern Spy: Kitty Cats



So, although I have two dogs right now I refuse to take part in the “cat person” or “dog person” labeling high jinks. I grew up with both felines and a canine in my home so I really do like them all! If it were up to me I would probably have dogs, cats, a pig, maybe a couple goats, chickens, and definitely an alpaca (they are just so cute!) …but I guess I would definitely need a bigger yard. Anyway, back to the point…here are some darling cat motifs done right for your closet, your cupboard, and your wall which have me calling “here kitty kitty”!

my style: beaded shorts


It has been so nice in LA the last couple days that I just had to bust out these beaded shorts. These guys recently made their way into my suitcase when headed to Palm Springs.

Progress: Drywall going up

Here is what is going on right now in the living room and kitchen area. Image 1 shows our newly stripped down walls, which needed some repair from water and bug damage. Next came insulation and now the drywall is getting hung. Thanks mom and dad for tackling the drywall while I’m not there! More free labor…YES!



Bathroom Inspiration


Ok, now this is more like it. Here are a few dreamy bathrooms that emulate the look I am going for. While I would LOVE a claw foot tub, it’s not going to happen in our 46″ wide bathroom. I am however digging the rustic feel of these bathrooms, the dark walls mixed with white tile, the subtle touches of color and natural wood. I’d say almost anything would be an improvement of what is going on here right now.
