Summer is Calling!


While the rest of the country is withering away in the cold and snow, it was a sunny and hot 90 degrees in LA today. And with the heat and sun, it seems to have jump started everyone into summer mode. And nothing means summer more than the beach and your bikini body so a hike seemed like the obvious choice. It's as if the weather brought out pops of color in me. And I guess I wasn't the only one. 



On my latest hike at Instagram Hipsters (aka Runyon Canyon,) I saw plenty of this. Lots of bold, bright, neon colors from shoes to sports bras to tops. So, in preparation for my next trip, I've started stocking up on plenty of bright neon and Instagram worthy pieces. Here are some of my favorites:




Givenchy Antigona


This bag is kind of a big deal. It's kind of amazing. Miranda Kerr has it so it's obviously cool right? 


Coming in at a cool $2500, the Givenchy Antigona was love at first sight. While I was looking at pictures of various celebrities with the bag, all of Miranda's numerous looks TOTALLY trumped anyone else who carried the bag, without comparison.

 I love that the bag is sleek and classy, it's structured without being too boxy, and it is the perfect compliment to any outfit or occasion. This is the perfect example of a designer bag that is an investment because of its longevity. Here please, take a look at some more amazing pictures of this bag. And Miranda. Miranda and the bag. Enjoy!

My Favorite Hiking Trails

While we all may be a slave to the stair master, nothing beats popping out of the gym and heading for a hike in this beautiful California weather. Here are a few of my favorite spots:


Runyon Canyon (Hollywood)
Put on your trendiest outfit and head here to be seen. Literally. (You'll probably see the paparazzi.) Not only will you capture a great Instagram photo and run into a few celebrities, but you'll get in a great workout. This place has a few different trails for your taste with varying intensity levels so ti will definitely be up to par with a gym workout. Plus, there's tuns of great spots to hit up afterwards for lunch, (like Urth Caffe,) or a quick smoothie, (Pressed Juicery.) Definitely a must go.



Garcia Trail (Azusa)
What's an Azusa? Is that a new color? While this city may not be well known, it's popular "cross" photos are littered all over Instagram. It also happens to be a pretty good hike. Some parts are pretty steep so it's always a good idea to go with a buddy, just to be on the safe side.



Crystal Cove (Newport Beach)
This hike is great because it offers so much. There is a trail that you can run near the ocean up to the mountain for  an extra workout before the hike and to take int he scenery. I mean, who doesn't love the beach? The hike itself is pretty long and all uphill but it's worth it! Don't forget to jog on the way down to burn those extra calories! Definitely worth the trip, not just for the hike but to check out this cozy beach town!

3/5

We celebrated my younger cousin's birthday tonight and I absolutely love this place. Javier's has such a great vibe, it's great for a date, a night out with friends, or for a family event. Very classy, but lovely. Can't wait to go back!

3/3

Always chase your dreams and aspirations. If you don't live your life to your full potential, it will be as if you didn't live at all. Happy Monday everyone!

Did Someone Say Trendy?

Did someone say trendy? Was Regina George over? These new items from the Victoria's Secret PINK collection are Instagram worthy and capture all your favorite catch phrases. What an easy and obvious purchase. Here are some of my personal favorites:


The "I Hate Running" tank is my personal favorite but I had to get all of them!

They're so fetch.


Braid Bar x Soul Cycle


If you haven't tried either of these Hollywood staples, you're in for a treat! I absolutely adore Braid Bar and Soul Cycle kicks my butt into shape, so what better way to look cute while working out?! This Monday, March 3rd, Braid Bar will be hosting an event at Soul Cycle's West Hollywood location, from 5-7pm. It is a great way to check out both services if you for some reason have not yet. 

If you've been living under a rock or something, here's the 411:

Braid Bar, an extension of the ever so popular Nine Zero One Salon in Hollywood, offers none other than the braid! And while it may seem like something simple you could do at home yourself, I dare you to try. They offer a wide variety of styles and customization that will allow you to personalize your hair look, whether it is for a special event, daily wear or just a treat to yourself. Let me tell you, it will be worth it.

Soul Cycle = You're Welcome.

This intensive workout is no stranger to the stars, from Vanessa Hudgens to Alessandra Ambrosio, and it definitely kicks your butt. No worries, if you have never taken a cycling class before, they've got you covered. Definitely a must go for workout buffs (aka the entire city of Los Angeles) so go. Run. What are you waiting for? Why are you still reading this? Hurry! You definitely don't want to miss this.

Lace Bras


I've become obsessed with lace bras lately. They can be sexy or even worn for everyday. I love the bright colors and contrasting comparisons. It seems as if an all lace bra is known as being a "grandma bra" but it's not true. It provides comfort and lift without all of the extra padding but is still sexy enough to wear for a special occasion.

The styles that they have at Victoria's Secret are extra pretty because of the limited edition chantilly lace that they have started using on the unlined lace bras in their Very Sexy Collection. They are super feminine and fit great. I absolutely love them and have started a new collection!

Did Somebody Say Kate?

She's perfect.
I love her.
She's living my life. Seriously. She's in a Bentley. Wearing a crown. I can't.

Anyways, we'll save that obsession for another day. The "Kate" that I am talking about today is the Christian Louboutin "Kate" Suede Pump. It is the perfect staple for every woman's closet.
One of the things that I love the most about this shoe, other than everything, is that there is no platform! And while that my seem scary to some, I think that it makes the shoes seem even classier and timeless. The heel is high, but it doesn't look trashy and overdone like it might if it had an enormous platform attached to it. It is simple and classy, just like the Duchess herself.
Everyone needs some red bottoms in their life.




Sleek, Simple, Semi Casual Everyday Outfits


Lately, I've been coming accross simple, yet chic, everyday looks from celebrities and when I recently saw Ashley Tisdale out and about, it all came together in a sense. Personally, I love dressing up for my everyday look but somehow I always end up with a fussy, too hard, too put together look that requires a lot of attention and annoyance throughout the day, even though it looks cute :) What these celebrities have shown me is an easier, simple way to look put together but by using basics.


 I love that Ashley Tisdale and Miranda Kerr kept it simple with plain tees. It seems that the part of the outfit that makes it seem a little fancier is that they all add booties, which are so comfortable, yet look classy, with some sort of coat or blazer which cleans up the look a lot. All in all, these celebrities have inspired me by showing us how to use the simple basics that we already own in our closets to put together a great, sleek yet simple outfit for everyday wear!

Celine Audrey Sunglasses

I've been pining over these sunglasses and dreaming about them for months! They are next on my list of must have items. I know I'm a little bit behind, but I absolutely love these. When I first tried them on, they fit perfectly, and that's a huge shock since I have THE hardest time finding the perfect fitting sunglasses. This were a huge hit and shaped well to my face, and now I'm on the hunt
