Home Tour Video

video by Vincent Elejorde

You guys… I’ve resisted videos for so many years now… BUT I wanted to share a quick run through of our townhouse before we move next week!  I probably should have cleaned it a little better but you know what, this is an authentic peek into the townhouse we’ve lived in for the past four years.

This has been such a great home to us, and I’m happy to have this token as a memory of our time spent in Old Towne Orange!  If you would like to see some more CBL videos, please share in the comments some video topics you might like to see. That would be such a big help to me!

Thanks so much for watching and sharing! Bare with me… it’s my first video, #Godbless. XO –

Wednesday Wish List

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 My summer wish list is here, and who’s surprised that it involves gold bow heels, a striped swimsuit and bright red midi dress? No one. I am really into these olive green sneakers, and these are my favorite Hermes Oran dupes.  I have a little diamond x ring like this and love wearing it on my middle finger, and this lariat…

How I Organize My Jewelry

Recently I shared some videos on insta-story while I was cleaning this tray of baubles, and I got so many messages and emails from you guys with questions about organizing jewelry.  SO, I wanted to share my little system up close and personal on the blog! I bought this tray many years ago (from Target, I believe?), and I have small jewelry dishes I’ve been given or collected over time in it. I use the dishes to hold my stud earrings, rings, hoop earrings, bangles, etc.. The drawers in my nightstands…

White Linen Suit

You guys might remember seeing these pants recently here.  I love them so much for summer, and I wanted to show you guys the chicness that is the full suited look!  I can’t say no to a suit. Flashback to this velvet number. I shared these sweet kitten heels not too long ago in this post. When I saw the vibrant punch of red but with a modest heel that I could hopefully wear walking around SF streets, I thought they’d be a great summer heel. I love the bronze heel,…

That Vibe Tho | New Spotify Playlists

I love sharing music on insta-stories, and it makes me so happy when you guys want to know what I’m listening to! SO, I’ve created two new playlists that I wanted to share. Each playlist contains a song or two with an explicit lyric warning – to those who are more conservative or have kids in the car, it’s a warning that these playlists may not be for you. This first one had been my daily go-to for the past few weeks: I made this one a while back and…

Staying Content

Staying Content.  This is a topic that has been on my mind a lot since spring. When Christian first started his residency, we both thought he would be finished in 5 years.  In year three he decided he was interested in an additional one-year fellowship, and I encouraged him to follow his interests. After all, it’s just one more year and I wouldn’t want him to look back and say “what if?”  He interviewed and matched in year 4 (more about that here). I joke with Christian that I was…
