I must say, I’m super excited to dive into 2015. This year will be a good one. So many exciting things in the pipeline. Wedding! Honeymoon! Potentially a new side business venture (or two, or three)! But first, I must get through the Golden Globe Awards. Wish me luck and I’ll be back on the blog after.
I’m so excited, I could do 10 backflips, but I have no flexibility so I’ve just been doing lots of fist pumps in the air and picturing myself doing backflips. Anyway, you know how much I love Madewell. I know how much YOU love Madewell. Seems like a perfect opportunity to hang at Madewell with Jaymee and I! Plus you can do some last minute holiday shopping and maybe buy yourself a treat.
There will be tons of awesome stuff going on too, like free-flowing bubbly, mini-sized pies, DISCOUNTS (!!!!), and a raffle to win a Twig & Twine wreath. Dream night, I tell ya.
We would love for you to come and hang with us. It’s going to be pretty amazing. Here are the details. See ya there!
This is my Harry Styles outfit. When I told Kyle this, he said “Who is Harry Styles?” WHAT IN THE HECK. Who is this person I’m living with and marrying? (Kyle, not Harry)
I’d like to think Harry would wear this outfit around London on his day off, give or take a leather jacket. He probably wouldn’t be hanging out in a dirty alley though, so that’s where we differ. Such is life.
Anyway, I’d wear an oversized sweater + black jeans combo every day if I could (sometimes I gotta do laundry though). I find a seasonal look and I stick to it (see summer look here), and this year I’m almost exclusively reaching for bulky sweaters, skinny jeans, and ankle boots (shocker of the century, I know). I’ll throw a hat into the mix when my hair is looking funky, which is happening a lot lately. If I sleep on my hair weird, it’s game over. Harry knows a thing or two about funky hair, I should really take notes.
DECEMBER! I’m so happy that it’s finally cooling down in LA and that bulky sweaters are now appropriate for everyday use. Yayyyyy!!! More later…

I’ve never been one to indulge in the Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays of the world, but this year really pulled me in, hook line and sinker (is that the term? I really don’t understand fishing). Like holy crap, there are some good deals y’all. I did some research and found all the Cyber Monday sales that I’ll be partaking in today, both for gifts and a little for myself, let’s be real. I’ve rounded them up here so let’s get crazy:
MADEWELL // 25% off purchase with code GIFTON
There are way too many things in my Madewell cart as per usual, but the Transport tote would make such a great gift (especially monogrammed!) so that’s a must purchase. Also, a floppy fedora for myself.
NEED SUPPLY // 20% off sitewide with code CYBER20
I could easily buy all my holiday gifts here this year, but I’m especially loving the Baggu pouches, selection of ABJ Glassworks (remember this ring pyramid?), and festive scarves.
J. CREW // 30% off select full-price with code HOLIDAY
The sweater selection at J. Crew never disappoints and I always find myself drifting toward the super textured, chunky, and cable varieties. So wintery!
Also, puppies who indulge in a little Cyber Monday action is A-OK by me. I snapchatted this last night of my favorite sibling, Jax, who takes after his sister (me) in the online shopping addiction.
Over the weekend, we experienced some honest-to-goodness fall weather, complete with wool sweaters and cooler temps. These things don’t really happen often to an LA gal like me so I took full advantage of it with a day of apple picking. We drove out to Oak Glen and visited Riley’s Apple Farm and Snow-Line Orchard. Fresh mountain air! I’ll tell ya, there’s nothing better.
The apple trees were pretty bare at this time of year, but we still picked a few pounds of pippins, red delicious, rubies, and granny smiths, all of which ended up in a pie I made later that night – JUST CALL ME QUEEN DOMESTIC. We also loaded up on fresh apple cider and apple butter, neither of which were very cheap but yolo. Luckily they turned out super delicious and we’re basically living off of apple cider, apple butter, and apple pie for the rest of the week.
The apple cider donuts at Snow-Line were calling our names as well, but with a line of 50 people deep, we had to sadly pass them up. Just ask Kyle, I legitimately pouted and stomped my feet a little. The power of donuts, I swear. Anyway, a solid fall day on the books for 2014.
