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 things. Except, on occasion, my marbles and temper.

The store is a little gem in an otherwise standard downtown shopping area. And my friend’s awesome book practically slapped me in the face on my way in. That is Lizzie Garrett Mettler’s “Tomboy Style” and it’s a supercool read. Buy it now.

Let’s talk about all the detail in the dressing room…a “Ring For Service” cowbell? Vintage postcard wallpapered ceiling? Soothing green tone that cushioned the blow when I tried on those jeans that made my ass look big(ger)? Yes, please.

Well done, Santa Cruz. Well done.

I dropped by the rescue where we adopted Sydney to pay homage to their spaymobile which features our girl on the far left! 💥💥💥💥 So proud of our little supermodel & eternally grateful to @amandafoundation for uniting us. ❤️
Twinning in PS.
Nothing says”you’re old” like a section of a cocktail menu entitled “Dark Ages” chock full of all the drinks that made you puke back in the day 💥💥💥 #oldschool #palmspringslife #palmspringsliving
Good God I love this place! I might have to go back & grab these @haydesign glass straws because they are beyond. 😍
Note to self: be more cool, like these guys 👌 #palmsprings # palmspringslife #palmspringsstyle
Hi from Palm Springs, bitches. 😎🌵👋 #holidayhouse #holidayhousepalmsprings #palmspringslife
Well played, Rolling Greens. Your employees may refuse to even make eye contact, but your stuff is ⭐️.
My newest client review on @Houzz! This means you should definitely hire me. Yes, I’m talking to YOU. (Big thanks to @janshegda !)
What to do with the little mezzanine above our front door has eluded me for years. When all else fails, go for plants! .... Or, maybe start there?
Their relationship is complicated.

You guys, I have finally found a show to fill the Catastrophe - shaped hole in my heart. This Way Up on @hulu. Watch it now. Hilarious and moving AF, and featuring a character that I want to be BFF’s with more than I did Tami Taylor. Apologies to @conniebritton , to whom this news would be devastating. @sharonhorgan kills it, per usual. And @weemissbea is the best thing that has happened to tv since, well, Sharon Horgan. Should I be paid for this glowing recommendation? Maybe, but it’ll have to be enough for you all to tell me how right I am. And I am sooooo right. #thiswayup
Saturday vibes. Gorgeous & unique tree is (natch) from @pottedstore. And so is the pot, for that matter. Pup is straight from heaven.
YOU GUYS I NEED MORE DOORS. This #vintagehardware is causing my heart rate to go up. Always a pleasure to visit Liz’s and swoon.
Male model for hire. Hourly is negotiable, form of payment preferred: people food of any kind.
Restaurant design done right... right??? 💯 & 👌 & 😍
I fear that Pico is the only being who truly ‘gets’ my obsession with the Madagascar Elephant Tree.
Hey, Malibu, we should visit more often.
