Happy Friday, my friends!  This weekend brings a fun trip that Christian and I have been looking forward to for a little while – a ski weekend at Tahoe!  Neither of us have ever been before, so we can’t wait to check it out.  Especially considering the record-breaking snow they’ve been getting lately.  I’ll be putting together a full post on it next week!

We bought some doggy snow boots for Bailey because her little paws are not use to this kind of cold, and I’ve been so surprised at how well she does in them.  But let’s not deny, watching her walk in them is quite hilarious!

Other than that, we mostly plan on cozying up by the fireplace (we haven’t had a fireplace in years so we looove when we get to have it), skiing and enjoy the snow.  A quick little escape from reality.

Have you been to Tahoe and if so, do you have any favorite spots? I love to hear!  Thanks so much for reading – XO –

Black Velvet Button Front Top

I think an all-black look can definitely be super sleek and chic.  When I lived in Southern California, I never really wore all black because it just felt so intense in such a sunny, beachy, palm tree-loving place.  But living in SF, I’ve returned to loving wearing black on black.  It feels so boss lady! My tip for wearing all of one color is to try to mix it up with the textures.  Leather, velvet, wool – the contrast in textures will make your look interesting even though you’re sticking…

Wednesday Wish List: Work Picks Under $100

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 I’ve been trying to bring more office-friendly looks to CBL to help my corporate ladies who still want to look chic without spending too much on (what I always considered) less “fun” work clothes.  I’m excited to share that everything in this post is under $100! I think a chic black bodysuit is a layering staple.  When I worked in an office with a dress…

Favorite Podcasts of 2018

I’ve shared some of my favorite podcasts of 2016 and 2017 before, but I haven’t posted about podcasts in a little bit, and if you follow me on Instagram you know I’m always looking for the latest and greatest. Best of all, don’t forget that all of these podcasts are totally free in the podcast app on your phone!  Let’s get into some current favorites – Slow Burn | My mom actually recommended this podcast and it is fascinating. I was in early elementary school when Clinton was President, so…

VIDEO | A Walk Down Memory Lane…

 I’ve been holding onto this embarrassing video to share the week of Valentine’s Day, ha!  Christian found some old photos of us together when we were packing up last year.  He happened to come home early the day I was shooting ahead some video, so we filmed this quick blast from the past. I watch this video and laugh because our energy levels are so mismatched.  Oh sweet, subdued Christian!  You can see the first half of our video together here. For more videos, check out the video category or you can…

Superfood Skincare

I first heard about Elemis when I was staying in a London hotel and saw they carried their products.  After trying them, I pulled the whole “I’m taking all of these travel sized pieces with me,” and so my love affair with the brand began. I’ve mostly used their resurfacing pads, toner and face lotion (also love the SPF version here), and honestly have always loved everything I’ve tried.  When you read about the brand, you’ll find they are the #1 luxury British skincare line, so I’m just late to the…

Behind-the-Scenes of a Blog Shoot

It’s Valentine’s week!  I was bound and determined to put together a fun red and pink post this week, but I want to paint a little mental picture of the behind-the-scenes of shooting this look.  Not to complain or pretend my life is so hard (I chose this career and I truly love so much of it), but just to keep it 100 with you guys. I thought we could shoot the look on our rooftop because it’s been raining almost nonstop since January 1st.  I knew we would have…
