It’s been a pretty hectic week! Lots of work to be done and I’m finding it hard to keep things in order. I used to consider myself a really neat, and organized person . . . looking back, I realize that those words described my life pre kids, husband, family and home based business. Learning to just go with it . . .
Gracias_madre_gates_restaurant_outdoor_patio Did a drive by on one of my favorite restaurants, Gracias Madre in WeHo. I love the food and the atmosphere of this place. It even looks great when it’s closed, lol.
birthday_girl_celebration_gift_bag The celebration continued for our new little 9 year old. We took the train to Santa Barbara for the day at her request and spent the day with my brother and his family. We had lunch at my fav SB restaurant, Carlitos. If you ever visit, try the shrimp empanadas. Ah-mazing.
rain_window_raindrops_rainy_day Believe it or not we had a full day of rain last week!!! I loved it and can’t wait until we are blessed with more. This was the view from my window as I worked at my desk and sipped tea. (too bad it was iced tea, even with the rain it was still 80 degrees out).
ayanna_listenbee_collection_shooter_tote Took my Shooter Tote on the train ride. It holds everything and never lets me down for travel ♡
LA_county_fair_the_lookbook_philosophy Rob took the day off on Thursday and we were both chaperones for our kids classes to the LA County Fair. It was a fun and tiring day. Some good friends of ours did the same so the parents had a playdate and so did the kids. It was a great day.

Have a great weekend. Hope you are spending time with the ones you love, or doing something you really want to do!

Life in Pictures | Week of 4.3.15

Life in Pictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY My Renaissance Clutch has proven to be a real go-to bag for me for evenings out. I’m thinking to make it in a slightly larger size as well. Do you like to carry clutches or do you prefer a strap? I really ♡ the option of having a removable strap . . .

Life in Pictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY Last Friday Rob and I drove to San Diego for the Bonobo concert. I love Simon Green’s music. It was such a treat to see him do his thing in person + feel the music and energy of everyone experiencing it together . . . #perfectdate Life inPictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY Went for a 5 mile hike with my buddy Loreta last week. There’s already so much beauty on this trail and then we had the treat of seeing these beautiful horses taking a stroll with their riders through the creek . . .

Life in Pictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY Reston turned 10 years old on Saturday and wanted to visit Mission Santa Barbara for his birthday, so we drove up and spent the day in The Barbie. It was such a beautiful day . . . and now I have a 10 year old . . . wow.

Life in Pictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY I love the view from this park. I used to bring the kids here when they were littles. They like to visit it whenever we are visiting SB. This time we were able to, but the playground was closed for construction :/ . . .

Life in Pictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY We dog-sat my niece’s dog, Coco, over the weekend. She is the sweetest dog ever, with the best temperament. I have never met a dog so chill! . . . she definitely has her moments of playfulness, but overall she was really easy to handle. I’m allergic to dogs, so it was tough when she would get all hyped up and want to run around and play, but I handled it. Reston really wants a dog, was this a test?

Life in Pictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY I hung out with my nieces on Saturday, we went vintage shopping and hung out in Pasadena. It was really fun. I love hanging out with them. Found this “faux” tile in a store in Santa Anita. I love the pattern + of course I love the colors ☺ . . .

Life in Pictures | THE LOOKBOOK PHILOSOPHY Ended the week with a super productive brand clarity meeting with Kelly Brito. Kelly is really good at what she does and I have been wanting to work with her for some time now. I’m excited about the work we are going to do together!

Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. This is the last weekend of Spring Break for us. My days are so out of whack! Did you notice that yesterday I posted a Mood Board Monday post on Friday? OOps! My bad!!

Enjoy your Saturday!

Life in Pictures: Gone til’ November . . .

Novembersm

 Looking back, November was a lot of fun. We didn’t get to do my annual birthday trip to ‘Frisco this year, but we did get back up to Santa Barbara to hang with my brother & his family. Definitely a good time. I’m happy to say that it’s always a good time for me when I am with my fam. (I realize this is not always the case for errbody.) So I am thankful. ☺
