What I’m Into This Week…










Liberal Arts – I watched this new movie randomly, on demand, and was left with the most AMAZING feeling when it was over.  It made me think back to all of the things that I miss about college but also appreciate all of the things that I’ve LEARNED since then.  The biggest takeaway: at one point Richard Jenkins’ character says, “I’ve felt 19 ever since I was 19 … Nobody feels like an adult; it’s the world’s dirty secret.” 














How to Meditate: A Guide to Self-Discovery – I recently re-watched Eat Pray Love, which obviously always sparks that inner “what am I doing with my life and where is it going” question.  I know it seems kind of silly to read a book on HOW to meditate cause, well, isn’t meditation just quiet time sitting with your legs crossed?  You would think.  I need to read a how-to book because I’m totally that girl in yoga that can’t relax and is constantly thinking “was that my iPhone that just went off?”














Sauteed Vegetables: It’s probably the dumbest thing ever but I tend to go through food phase obsessions and, right now, I can’t get enough sauteed vegetables.  Zucchini, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower…I don’t discriminate, it’s all delicious.



No Doubt “Push and Shove”: My love for all things No Doubt and Gwen Stefani is, of course, forever but I’m not biased when I say that Push and Shove is A-MAZING.  Seriously, No Doubt just gets better and better and I can’t wait to see them live on December 4th here in LA.

My Favorite Summer Salad

I’ve never been much of a cook but ever since I moved to LA (3 years ago this month!), I’ve been making big strides in the way of my stove…and I’m actually pretty proud.  This past weekend I made my absolute favorite summer salad that is not only super easy, but also amazing and healthy.  What summer salads do you guys like?


  • Arugula (or really any lettuce that you like)
  • Shrimp (sauteed for a few minutes; garnish with pepper and salt)
  • Corn (cut from the cobb)
  • 1 peach (cut up)
  • Heirloom tomatoes
  • Goat cheese

The Monday Rundown: Halloween Edition

Pumpkin-shaped Chocolate Cake: I haven’t actually tried this recipe (since I have zero backing skills) but I love that it’s just two bundt cakes put together with an ice cream cone as the stem.

GAP 1969 Leopard Jeggings: The Current/Elliot version has been all the rage in the blogosphere, and I like them, but I think this darker, more subtle version is a little more me and definitely more versatile.

Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Candle: The combo of cinnamon and pumpkin is absolutely amazing, calming and reminds me of when I lived in New York and we had actual seasons.

LUSH Jacko Bath Bomb: This bath bomb doesn’t actually smell like pumpkin.  However, the spicy clove bud and spearmint combo has a lot of gusto and I’m just a big fan of bath bombs in general.
