Valentine's Day


Ahhhh, VALENTINE’S DAY.  It’s a day when people are either really, really happy and giddy or like realllly sad and depressed, which is just really dumb, in my opinion. REALLY.  I can’t even believe that this is the FIFTH Anti-Valentine’s Day gift guide that I’m doing (first, second, third, fourth)…and I want to be clear, I don’t hate Valentine’s Day, I just think we should celebrate our loved ones (and ourselves!) EVERY DAY, not just on February 14th.  This gift guide is really just a little list of what I want/what I’ll be doing on the day where florists make most of their money every year…get at it.

1. I Love U More Than French Fries Card// French fries are my weakness and I would totally buy this card for myself…but it also makes sense to send to anyone in my family or one of my BFFs.

2. Jayson Home Pyrite Heart// I’ve always been amazed at the fact that people actually buy paper weights…does that mean they don’t have enough random shit already to hold down their papers?  Maybe. Regardless, I think this pyrite heart is super pretty and I want it for my desk.

3. Victoria’s Secret Rose Lace Bralette// I’m all about the bralette lately and cobalt blue is one of my favorite colors to wear.

4. Pasta and Wine// I feel like this one needs no explanation, but I’m reminded of what LADY GAGA once said about Valentine’s Day…and you can fill in the blanks.

5. Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without a Date// I recently finished reading this book where the author tells tales about her close call relationships. It’s funny, and relatable, and will make you less suicidal if you’re single on Vday.

6. DIY Terrarium// I included a terrarium in my own holiday wish list this past Christmas and yeah, it hasn’t happened yet but I’m thinking Friday (Valentine’s Day) might be a good day to get down to business.

Get The Look: Gwen Stefani At The Pumpkin Patch

I recently came across this photo of Gwen Stefani (pregnant with her third child, btw) taking her two boys, Kingston and Zuma, to a California pumpkin patch for Halloween…and nearly died.  First off, she is probably the hottest pregnant woman EVER and second, how cute is this casual cool outfit?  Here’s how you can re-create the look:

The Cutest Lingerie for spring

My good friend, Kelley Herman, is probably one of the most talented lingerie designers in the country, in my opinion, and so when I asked her to give me (and you guys!) the scoop on her top lingerie pieces for spring, I was honestly too excited for words when I saw her choices.  Admittedly, my own lingerie closet has grown by leaps and bounds (and style) since meeting Kelley back in 2009, when I first moved to LA.  So here are her top choices for spring, and why:

1. Topshop Sketch Floral Print Bralet:  “The longline bra is the new bandeau!  I like the all over lace ones for this summer but I also like the ones that look like a little cropped tops and not so much like a bra! (like this version and #4 below).  The Topshop version is nice because it comes in many sizes, so you have a better chance of getting a good fit, which is super important in any bra- even a fun novelty one.”

2. Forever21 Seamless Layering Bra: “I live in these things, especially on those super hot LA nights…and for $5 a pop, it doesn’t matter that they start falling apart after about five washes.”

3. Blackheart Lace Longline Bralette: “The Blackheart version is nice because it has a lightweight foam cup with an under-wire, so you get the modesty and support of a bra.”

4. Free People Secret Garden Lace Bra

5. Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Demi Bra: “I love this bra!  The lace band looks sexy when it peeks out of tanks, and the cups are super smooth, even under tight tees.”

6. Victoria’ Secret Lace Trim Mini Cheekster Panty: “Love this mini cheekster!  it makes your butt look so cute!  I just wish it didn’t come in all of these dorky prints…where’s the solid black?!”
