On Holiday at The Brownstone Cafe

This past Monday was my birthday so I treated me myself and I to lunch at The Brownstone Cafe. I really love this place for two reasons, the tomato basil bisque, and the spectacular location. While I was there on Monday I went ahead and took a few photos so you can see what the Villa Del Sol ( the building the brownstone is inside) really looks like. I usually go alone on my break between classes and it's so relaxing. Take a look for yourself.













Go on down whenever you get a chance to get breakfast or lunch. The Brownstone Cafe

How I met Trina Turk

As some of you may know I'm in love with the fashion designer Trina Turk, well not her per say, her designs I should say. A few weeks ago I got to meet her at a meet and greet at her Fashion Island Boutique in Newport Beach, Ca. To say I was nervous would be an understatement, I was going crazy, this is like something you cross off on a bucket list right? To be a design student and able to talk to one of your favorite designers is one of those things that doesn't happen every day.
My only intention upon arriving to this event at her boutique was to talk to Trina face to face and not look like a fool. I know I can get starstruck, one time my sister I went to a Angelina Jolie movie premiere and my sister shook her hand and I screamed. This kind of behavior was not allowed from me at the meet and greet. I have been working on my professional image, haha.

I actually got to talk to Trina for a few minutes, she came up to me and humbly introduced herself, as did I. I told her I'…

Its my Birthday

It's My Birthday Today
Yes, another year has gone by in my life, but one filled with lots of good memories and photos to relive it. This year I became increasingly more obsessed with coconut, bought way less clothing, blogged so much, took lots of classes at school, re-located at work, started working out again, met Trina Turk, cut my hair from long to short, and had myself some many thought provoking conversations with the people whose company I love. My social life was short lived the last few months, but hey I'm hoping it works for the best in my future when I get good grades for my transcripts next year. Life is good. Now onto something sweet...coconut cupcakes, maybe I will find one of these today and substitute it for my birthday cake.

Mr Trina Turk, BLOW and how men should be dressing

George & Mirtha Jung lounging poolside.
Sometimes I look at men’s fashion and think to myself...what happened? It's like in the movie clueless when Cher looks at all of her high school male counterparts with disgust. Seriously some guys need some help in the style & dressing department, I'm not going to name names. I thought it would be fun to show a few new styles from designer Trina Turk and compare them to the wardrobe choices from the movie "Blow". Blow was released in 2001 starring Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz and many other quirky actors. This film is based on the life of Drug Lord "George Jung" and spans mostly between the 60s and 70's in California, Mexico and a few other American locations.

Mr Turk PLAID JACQUARD TROUSER Not for the faint of heart. They’ll see you coming and talk about you when you’re gone. This bold plaid is printed on an 85% cotton 15% rayon jacquard. Front trouser pockets and back welt pockets. $228.00

Miami Bungalow Bliss Living Home

Lets go on a stay-cation with ~Bliss Living Home~ Here are some of my favorite bedroom accessories from the Miami bungalow collection from Bliss Living Home. They are right on the money with their lattice print and vintage tropical getaway vibe.

KEW BROWN Duvet $275.00 Can one be bold and supportive at the same time? Our Kew duvet set shouts “Yes! Yes! Yes!” The crisp white and luscious dark brown trellis pattern is three-parts bold on the duvet and matching pillow shams. (Very Vizcaya Gardens, BTW.) But with the toss of an Argo throw, its pop gives color-saturated accessories even more snap and crackle. Pillow shams feature solid-brown flat piping and a two-inch flange. Reverse is solid brown. HOT FUN Pillow $95.00 Looking very Botticelli, our Miami mermaid emerges from waves of brocade and silk appliqu├ęs. She wants to talk, and the hot topic is pillows. The discussion, on natural colored linen, is embroidered with wit and shimmers with textural interest.
PALMETTO GREEN Pillow $75.00 The be…
