As Sam and I slowly settle into our new home, we’ve been taking time each day to explore our neighborhood. We’ve already found a lovely flower shop just around the corner, and a cafe with a really good menu. There’s also a taco truck that comes by on weekdays, making it the perfect spot for grabbing a quick lunch during busy work days. Getting to know new neighborhoods while building new routines is an aspect of moving I really enjoy. I get a sense of calm when I spend my mornings doing a couple of my favorite activities like buying flowers and drinking too much coffee. It’s the little things that make the winter days more pleasant.

It doesn’t rain often in the city of angels but when it does I love heading downtown to wander around the gloomy city.  It reminds me of when Sam and I lived in San Francisco. Wandering around the city was our favorite thing to do. On hot summer nights we’d get lost in Chinatown. We’d spend rainy mornings exploring the Marina.  Our lazy Sundays stared with a stroll down to the Ferry Building. Out of all the things I miss about living in SF, it’s this wandering I miss the most.

Last month Jared The Galleria of Jewelry invited me to one of their stores to experience first hand what the jeweler is all about. It was incredible how knowledgeable and friendly the entire staff was. After learning about the extensive range of brands, like Vera Wang LOVE and the beautiful Chosen collection of customizable engagement rings, carried at Jared locations, we were given free reign to play with all the beautiful pieces. I tried on everything from gold bangles to brilliant engagement rings. I ended up falling in love with a couple sets of sparkly studded earrings. I knew I wanted to layer them for a glam holiday look. I paired them with silver bracelets, slipped on a full skirt and danced the night away at a holiday soiree.

Check out Jared online or in stores and find yourself something beautiful.

I have very little to say about this dress because it’s absolutely beautiful and I’m totally in love with it. I see it as the perfect dress for Christmas Eve. Sam and I split the holidays between our families. This year we’re spending Christmas in Santa Cruz with Sam’s family. I can’t wait to overdose on crab (a Christmas Eve tradition), play with my nephews, and indulge in homemade cookies.

P.S. If you’re wondering what those stickers on my wrist are, they’re Body Vibes from my skin guru.
