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

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

Hard to believe it, but “They’re real & they’re spectacular.” 👌 💥 🌸
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
When your Etsy maker from Cameroon (likely unintentionally) tells you to ‘Chill The F*ck Out, Maigret.’ 😂😂😂.
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 😂😂😂
I’m a sucker for these stunning flowers whose name I can never remember, even tho I trudge down to the flower mart every 6 or so weeks (yes, they last that long) to score some. 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
