Easily my new favorite tee, because what's the fun in mystery? Also donning my new favorite ring, Mansai's Screw Cuff Ring in rose gold. Got this little number from Moorea Seal, Seattle-based retailer that donates a portion of their sales to different causes. Shopping is great, but when you're contributing to a greater cause? Win-win.

'Lower your neckline, not your standards.' Excited to embrace plunging necklines this summer and probably Fall. Things have certainly changed (thankfully) since JLo's iconic rendition.

Bruno Muscle Tee c/o Valfre, High Waist Skinny Jeans c/o Denimocracy, 

Love love this shirt because although it's a cat, it strongly resembles Toothless the dragon (via How to Train Your Dragon), whom I named my lil pup you see after. I paired it with my High Waist Skinny Jeans for a comfy fit--Denimocracy continues to make the comfiest pairs of jeans I own.

DIY: BASIL LUVR

Me, ready to get my snack on

Hey guys! In my next installment of DIYs, I collaborated with my photographer/collab. assistant/homegirl Lisa to create a delicious meal that's appealing to all the senses (yes, I call recipes DIYs). With the help of HP and the HP x360, I'm showing you how I bend the rules by combining some of my favorite ingredients ever and put a twist on classic dishes. 

Caprese Quesadilla Recipe and Cucumber Basil Mule
Hi, Lisa!

After watching HP x360's Behind The Scenes Video, it inspired me to go out the box with an artistic collaboration by pushing my comfort zone and putting my culinary muscles to work. I'm not one to cook very much (making eggs is in my rolodex of skills), so I called upon my friend & photographer Lisa, who frequently 'pins' delicious recipes onto different boards and who I know would help put her own artistic flare when bringing our project to life. She’s an extremely talented graphic designer/branding aficionado, and the perfect co- collaborator! 
Check out HP x360’s Behind the Scenes Video here! When watching the video, I was inspired by the common language of art, and it reminded me of when I visited the Sofia Reina Museum in Spain—and how one does not need to speak the same language to internalize and appreciate another individual’s artistic piece.
Without further ado...

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to stop by Sunglass Hut’s Electrify Your Summer Tour event at The Brig on Abbot Kinney, and it was an absolute blast! Lisa and I walked down the street looking for the event, but it found us before we found it! We walked onto the premises, which took place at the parking lot of The Brig. The light-up stage/dance floor, complete with a giant sun, immediately caught my eye. We scoped out the latest sunglasses styles—my favorites were the Miu Mius and Raybans—and snapped photos at the gif photo booth. After having our favorite photos printed on-site, I got a dee-lish vanilla and fresh mint ice cream sandwich. All the while, my pup Toothless was a bit of a celebrity amongst the guests. Thanks so much to Sunglass Hut for having me! 
Next stop on the Electrify Your Summer Tour is this Saturday in Chicago. Find out if your city is next http://www.sunglasshut.com/us/sunglasses-trends/summer-tour.
