Favorite ETSY Finds, Part 1

I so enjoy Etsy. You never know what you might find inside this Cyber Den of Uniquity. Like these 2 barstools I purchased last year and re-upholstered in this gorgeous slate grey leather. Wait a minute? (Shameless Bragging Alert) Are those

Look what’s back!

When the folks at Shu Uemura stopped carrying their amazing eyelash curlers in the U.S., I was sad. Very sad. But look what is back with a vengeance….the best eyelash curler ever. And I am not kidding. I curled my

Detroit Trash is my new… um… Treasure. God, that’s bad.

This is Sam. I met her at her booth at the Silver Lake Farmers’ Market held on Tuesdays at Griffith Park/Sunset. She has a family business called Detroit Trash, offering jewelry created using tiny pieces of American history. Much of their

The Bestest Gluten Free Pancakes *

This is the best recipe in the world. It will make all your wildest dreams come true, much like Voting For Pedro did back in ‘04. I use Fage Greek Yogurt instead of the soy yogurt the recipe calls for.

How To Throw A Kick-Ass Bridal Shower!

The most important thing to remember when throwing a bridal shower is to pick a bride who has at least 10 close girlfriends who are all incredibly talented and willing to work their asses off for the cause. This rag tag

Totally Stealing This Idea Next Time I Design A Key Store.

How cute is this display I happened upon at Stripe in Santa Cruz? I never knew keys could be so cool. Before this, they were just things I lost all the time. Just kidding. I’m way too Type-A to lose

Love For The Love Print

Check out this fabulous LOVE print by Jen Ramos from Made By Girl. I mean, REALLY? Yes, really. Jen was nice enough to donate one of these prints to the homeless shelter where I co-designed a few rooms. All I had

F#CK YESSSS.
I miss this great great man. The soul sucking Trump regime has to go. Things just keep getting worse & worse to the point that I barely recognize my own country. The division the GOP has propagated & ENCOURAGED is devastating. We have a president who openly encourages violence.... & tells people to ingest disinfectant. I can’t even believe that sentence I just typed. WTF IS HAPPENING? Vote vote vote vote vote. He has to go. Enough. Enough. See @barackobama ‘s feed for the whole post. Props to @joebiden for visiting protests — while Trump hides in a bunker like the goddamned coward he is.
This is one of my most favorite homes I’ve worked on. One where, IMO, the clients made the best possible decisions. I adore this space & so happy it brings my clients joy. Their cats are the most aggressive Destroyers Of Furniture I have ever encountered— and @perennialsfabrics are seriously the only fabrics they can’t destroy. And, trust me, they have tried really hard. 😹
I GET TO LIVE WITH THESE GUYS.
You guys, I’m jealous of my own breakfast. Saw overnight oats on IG and been making them the past week. Sooooo good, I wake up in the middle of the night looking forward to them. That’s what one looks forward to in quarantine, I guess? Also stoked about my breakfast companions. And the fact that we haven’t killed each other yet. 💯
Dead To Me. Season 2. The one where they cry the whole time. Nonstop. Nonstop crying. If you’re reading this, they’re still crying. Now too. (Conversations with @joymarieanderson ) #deadtome #stopthecryingalready
If someone told me a few months ago that soon I’d be rockin’ this look, I would have pushed them down a flight of stairs. #quarantinefashion #covidstyle
California.
Went to see the poppies in bloom with this guy. So beautiful & peaceful & soul-filling. And don’t worry (or judge), we were miles away from other revelers.
PROOF, YOU GUYS. PROOF.
I’m terrified my neighbor saw the sign I left out for the delivery person & isn’t aware that we ordered from an actual place called “Pizza Boy”. 😬
You guys. Sydney has a “boyfriend” and his name is Dug. He used to be a big time Disney star & now he is relegated to being a sex slave. A story we’ve all heard before, no doubt. #DugFromUp #dogshaming #dogshamingofinstagram
Conversations with @dollabeal always make me feel better. #goodwitch #quarantine #quarantineconversations
The sun is finally, mercifully, out again in Los Angeles. Was so excited, I did yoga outside. I’ve rediscovered yoga - albeit 30 minute sessions now instead of the OG 90 minute sessions of the past. I even discovered I can still do headstands. It’s been weirdly empowering, revisiting stuff I actually CAN do instead of focusing on all the stuff I cannot do & the myriad ways I am failing, and feeling hopeless these days. But the sunshine sure helps me feel better. And this view I am so blessed to have - brilliant.
House rules have been considerably relaxed during this global crisis.
Quarantine Poster Boy..... 😂😂😂
Same, buddy. Same.
Quarantine Tip #3: Decide to finally organize your photo library. Delete delete delete and free up space. Find gems like this from 2007 when you went to an ugly sweater party thrown for your friends graduation from med school, where you crammed a huge piece of meat (it was soooo good and you were soooo hungry) down your gullet, where it became lodged. Ran outside because you thought you were going to throw up. Realized you were instead going to choke to death. Asked your husband to go back into the party and come back with “ONE DOCTOR”. Emphasized the ‘one’ part. Became mortified when 6 doctors ran out to help you, conceding by round table that your life was definitely not in danger, you should maybe just chew your food next time. Never get invited to another party this friend has thrown.
