CHOC Walk 2015

18 Aug

It’s that time again – time for the CHOC Walk! Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 11!

This year I’m bringing back the Blogging While Walking team, with Xenia as my trusty co-captain. We would love for you to join us, so make sure to hit that link and sign up! We had so much fun last year, and you don’t want to miss out this year!

If you don’t want to wake up before dawn, you can donate without walking. I won’t judge. Promise.

But for real, we would love to have you on the team! You don’t have to be a blogger! Friends, family, kids, everyone is welcome!

Hit me up if you have any questions, and make sure to read about all the fun we had last year.

The CHOC Walk is a great way to see Disneyland and California Adventure in a totally unique way. You’ll get to walk through the park before it opens, cut through backstage areas, and see more characters than you can shake a stick at. But please don’t shake sticks at them.

And the best part is that it raises money for Children’s Hospital of Orange County, so that they can continue their life-saving care and research for children in Orange County and around the world. So join us. Or just give us money. Please and thank you.

My Favorite Summer Styles

12 Aug

This post is sponsored by Endless Jewelry. Opinions and fluffy dogs are mine.

Summer might be winding down, but there’s still plenty of time to rock some sunny summer looks, especially here in Southern California where I’ll be wearing summer clothes for the next few months. Here are some of my favorite summer looks.

Bright Prints

Here’s where my weekend style varies the most from my office looks – bright colors! Bold prints! Lilly! At the office I pretty much wear black and more black, but on weekends it’s all about color. I love bold prints, especially in the form of Lilly Pulitzer and Vera Bradley. I love this light cotton button down because it’s so versatile. In the mornings and evenings here it can get chilly, but afternoons are hot. I love wearing a tank top under a shirt like this so I can layer for the weather.


Okay, fine, I wear Sperrys all year. But I’m still counting them because they really are great for summer. Strappy sandals are nice, but if you’re going to be out and about and doing a lot of walking, leave them at home. Because it’s all about two words: arch support. Yeah, I’m one of those people now. But with Sperry’s you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, and they come in so many fun prints and colors. Plus, since they’re actual boat shoes, they’re great for the beach.

Endless Jewelry

Have you heard about Endless Jewelry yet? They’re great leather wrap bracelets with a nearly endless amount of charms.

You can get a single, double, or triple wrap. Or, you can buy a few single wraps and link them together to make a multi-colored wrap. Mix and mingle the colors and charms to suit your every mood, whim, and outfit. These are the charms that I got on my light blue single wrap:

Key of the Heart ($30), Million Love ($30), Clear Heart Cut Drop ($50)

There are so many fun charms to pick from, starting at $30. These are the ones on my wish list right now:

Round Black Dome ($30), Big Rose Cube ($40), White Pearl Drop ($75), Starfish ($65), Blue Sweet Dreams ($65), Dolphin ($45), London Blue Love Drop ($90), Elephant ($75)

So go forth and style your summer!

Friends Emojis – Season 2

10 Aug

I’m back with more Friends emojis! Season Two was hard because a lot of the titles had people’s names in them, and it’s hard to specify which person I’m talking about in emoji form.

Same rules as last time, assume that they all start with “The One With” or “The One Where”. See if you can guess what they are, and there’s a key at the end. Good luck!

1. TOW Ross’s New Girlfriend
2. TOW the Breast Milk
3. TOW Heckles Dies
4. TOW Phoebe’s Husband
5. TOW Five Steaks and an Eggplant
6. TOW the Baby on the Bus
7. TOW Ross Finds Out
8. TOW the List
9. TOW Phoebe’s Dad
10. TOW Russ
11. TOW the Lesbian Wedding
12-13. The One After the Superbowl
14. TOW the Prom Video
15. TOW Ross and Rachel… You Know
16. TOW Joey Moves Out
17. TOW Eddie Moves In
18. TOW Dr. Ramoray Dies
19. TOW Eddie Won’t Go
20. TOW Old Yeller Dies
21. TOW the Bullies
22. TOW the Two Parties
23. TOW the Chicken Pox
24. TOW Barry and Mindy’s Wedding

So how did I do? I know some of them were a stretch, but if you have better ideas I’d love to hear them! I’m always looking to up my emoji game.

Weekly Round Up – 7/31/15

31 Jul

Hey-o. Aside from the usual work and Netflix grind, here’s what I’m into this week.

Special Olympics World Games

I was able to spend Wednesday afternoon at the dressage competition for the Special Olympics World Games. Did you know that this is the largest sporting and humanitarian event of the year? And you can be a spectator at any of the events for FREE? There’s still time to go before the games end on August 2! Check out the schedule – there are events happening all over LA!

Maxwell House

This ain’t your daddy’s Maxwell House. I picked up their iced coffee concentrate this week and I’ve been loving it. Lately I’ve been trying to avoid spending a ton of money on coffee, but I’m also too lazy to make it myself at home. This is a great solution – you just fill a cup with ice, add milk, and squirt in the concentrate. It tastes like a great iced drink from the famous coffee shop, only you make it in your own less fancy kitchen.

Teddy Snuggles

When am I not into Teddy snuggles? Earlier this week he was feeling especially cuddly, and he climbed into my lap and nuzzled his sweet fluffy head into my chest. This may or may not have something to do with the fact that I had just eaten a peanut butter sandwich, but I’m going to tell myself it’s just because he loves me so much.

Amazon Dash

They’re real! And they’re here! You can get your Amazon Dash buttons now and get instant refills whenever you need them. There’s no Diet Coke button, which is clearly a big bummer for me. But I might get that Clorox Wipes button, because I use those a lot. There isn’t one that I actually need, but I’m probably going to deliberate for a while and then order one anyway. Because it seems like fun.

Weekly Round Up – 7/24/15

24 Jul

I have to admit that I was scratching my head to fill this post. This week was a blur of working early, working late, going home, and working some more. I didn’t have a lot of time for fun, but that’s okay because I get to spend my weekend cleaning the apartment. And if that doesn’t spell F-U-N then I don’t know what does.

Fila Leggings

See the leggings I’m wearing while I do Flexline? They’re the Fila Sport Colorblock Performance Leggings, and I’m really into them. They’ve got enough compression so that nothing jiggles when I run, but they’re still super comfortable. Plus they’re aqua, so that makes them an automatic winner for me. They come in a bunch of other colors too, but I like aqua best.


I know, I know, I know. But these aren’t those crocs. These are cute wedges. The Leigh Wedge in Nautical Navy/White to be exact. And I’m obsessed with the smart buckle. It lets you have all the benefit of an ankle strap – secure fit, no slipping – but it’s so convenient and easy. Because I hate dealing with a traditional buckle, and I usually end up stretching out the straps on my shoes trying to do the on/off without the buckle hassle.

Seinfeld, starring Suzy Soro

You guys, I KNOW THAT LADY! And you should too, because she’s hilarious. Seriously, if you’re not following Suzy Soro on Twitter then I don’t even know what you’re doing on Twitter. She also has a great story about filming this episode of Seinfeld, “The Dinner Party,” in her book, Celebrity sTalker, that you should all buy and read right now. (And it’s free for Kindle! I have no idea how long these things last, so grab it while you can.)

Hunger Games

There’s a new trailer for Mockingjay Part II!!! Everybody scream!! Seriously though, is it November 20 yet?
