Home Sweet Home

What a fun day. I spent the morning with my mom filming a segment for Access Hollywood Live and came home to see our house featured on my favorite blog, Sweet Thing. Here is a little tease, but head over to Sweet Thing for the full interview and lots more photos...

Pansies for Nellie Mae

Over the weekend I had a sudden burst of wanting to spruce up our garden. I don't have a very consistent green thumb, but when I get the urge, I get very excited. I had so much fun getting my hands dirty. At the nursery some purple pansies caught my eye and I knew I just had to buy them, for they were my grandma's favorite flower. Today just happens to be her birthday, so here are my pansies in honor of sweet Nellie Mae.

A Love Filled Afternoon

Last month my mom hosted a baby shower for her assistant and dear friend, Ali. Jessie from Sweet Thing was there to capture the beautiful afternoon and took some wonderful shots of my mom, Clementine and I. To see the event captured in whole, please visit Jessie's blog. I am so grateful to have such lovely photos of us. Thank you Jessie!

Lauren Spencer King

Happy Monday! I was thrilled to see my dear friend, Lauren Spencer King, featured on design*sponge today. The photos of her apartment and art studio were shot by our in-house photographer, the talented Kate Danson! I could spend hours looking at every inch of Lauren's apartment, there are so many meaningful, beautiful treasures to discover. I love how she always has fresh flowers by her bed as a gift to herself. Here are a few of my favorite photos, but be sure to check out design*sponge for the full post. Also, Lauren just added a few amazing photo paintings to her Etsy shop-you better act fast if you want one!

Ojai Weekend

Hello again. I thought I would be up for blogging during my maternity leave, but I was wrong. Instead I wanted to completely disconnect from my computer and it felt so good! Now that Clementine is almost 3 months old, I am slowly reemerging out of the baby bubble. It's been a crazy whirlwind, the weeks have flown by and I can't believe how big she is already. I am trying to cherish every day with her because you know what they say...they grow up so fast. We spent a relaxing weekend up in Ojai and I played around with some fun photography Apps on my iPhone. Here are some photos using Pro HDR. Enjoy!
