a brief escape


Sam and I spent a blissful few days at the cabin. It was a lovely little escape before a couple of hectic weeks in New York.

sunday bites

Recently I found this no mayo deviled egg recipe and I’ve been creating new variations ever since. The trick is to use avocado instead of mayo, the rest of the recipe is up to you. 

Ingredients:
3 eggs
1 quarter of a large avocado
6 thin slices of jalapeño pepper
Cumin
Dash finely chopped cilantro
Chives
Salt and pepper
Makes 6

Directions: 
Hard boil the eggs. Once they are cooked all the way through, cut them in half and scoop out the egg yolk. Mash together the avo, cooked egg yolks, cumin, and cilantro.  Once everything looks evenly combined, spoon the mixture back into your egg white halves, top each one with a slice of jalapeño, sprinkle with chopped chives, pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy.

flower friday

The other day I popped by my dear friend Bess's house to watch her work her magic on some beautiful flowers she had left over after an event ( She's the magician behind Celadon & Celery). She whipped up these two beautiful arrangements in a matter of minutes and artfully arranged them on over sized wooden chest. I love watching her work. There is such a confident ease about her, you know she's pure talent.
If you're smitten like I am, check out her blog Life with Bess.

black and tan

 It seems that after a summer of practically living in dresses and skirts, pants are finally maiking a much deserved appearance in my every day wear. I snagged these at the Shopbop.com sale and couldn't be happier with my find.

print mixing

With so much going on in the next few weeks, I've been running around town like crazy trying to get everything done before my next two trips.  This means I've been sporting a sort of uniform like the one above. A little bit of print mixing keeps the formula fresh.

Tomorrow I'll  be helping H&M celebrate the opening of their new Valencia Town Center store.
 As part of the celebration the first five customers in line to tweet/Instagram a selfie at me and H&M with the hashtag #hmlovesvalencia will win early access to the store along with a style consultation and a free head to toe outfit courtesy of H&M. And anyone who attends both this store opening and the store opening at Antelope Valley Mall on September 10th, can be entered to win a $1,000 H&M gift card.
Stores open at 12:00pm, hope to see you there!
