S’well Indeed.

Everywhere I go, people ask me about my groovy water bottle.  If I were in a magazine, in a feature entitled “Things Julie Maigret Can’t Live Without”, one of my items would be this beauty. Yes, that list, like every

That Time I Discovered I Am No Defender Of Women.

Last week, I went to Largo at the Coronet to see “Sarah Silverman & Friends”.  Which really should have been called “Sarah Silverman & The Same Friends As The Last Time You Went A Few Months Ago, With Mostly The Same Jokes.” But

My husband with his favorite lady. That’s right. She’s his fave female. 🙄
@pottedstore , crushing it, per usual. 🌿🍃🦚
All kinds a chillin’ going on up in here.
SPRING IS HERE, BITCHES. At least for today. 😬
HUGE THANKS to everyone who has contributed to my lofty goal of attaining “The Mark Of The Beast” # of followers. 💪🏽
Cruised by this iconic Mid Century gem in Palm Springs today. Swoon.
This wallpaper is straight up BANANAS 😻
I feel EXACTLY the same about this gloriously bright & sunny LA day 😻😎🥰 . Must stop eating now in preparation for bathing suit season. #kiddingnotkidding

The view from our deck on a sunnier day. The rain bums me out, but I am greatly comforted by the fact that, in a few weeks, Arya is going to be reunited with Gendry and it’s going to be AWESOME. #gameofthrones #LAweather
And we all got A+’s in @boycestudio ‘s fantastically fun woodworking class, where I laughed so hard, I wheezed. Contact C.C. for details on how you & your friends can have so much fun that you all wheeze, as well.
We took @boycestudio ‘s woodworking class today & LOOK WHAT WE MADE WITH OUR OWN HANDS!! Everyone in the world should take this class - a total blast, especially with a few friends. It’s thru Airbnb Experiences. DM me for details! Look how chuffed we look with ourselves 😂😂😂

The same kind every time because WHY mess with perfection? Also don’t even bother to tell me the name because I will immediately ding dong out & forget it. 🤷🏼‍♀️
Enviable decor at this #EchoPark foodie gem 😻. Enviable fries, as well.
FIFTY DAYS BUT WHO’S COUNTING? #ImCounting #gameofthrones
