Ahh there’s nothing like getting friends and family together to celebrate. Yesterday we celebrated my 25th birthday on the boat with the whole family and our close childhood friends. Means the world to me to have had them all there.
Today is my actual birthday and Hanna, my mom, Anna and I are going to the LA Textile Show to pick up some new fresh material for the next upcoming seasons. EXCITING!
WINE EVENT & THE STANDARD
So yesterday I went to a really cool wine event that I got invited to by amazing photographer friend, Ravi Vora. He shot one of the photos that made it to one of the wine bottles which is pretty exciting! The wines were incredibly good too. Everything from full bodied Cabernets to light and fruity Pinot Noirs.
So as you guys know my birthday is on Monday so my friend from San Diego, Melissa drove up to LA and we are going to have a girls day today! Headed to The Standard now…photos coming soon<3
FRESH NAILS & A NEW PLANT
Just wanted to show you guys my fresh set of burgundy nails. Ya like? I’m celebrating a friend’s birthday tonight so I needed to get them done pronto. I’m obsessing over wearing these delicate rings too. I am in need of finding a whole batch of gold ones that I can wear on an everyday basis. Do you guys know of any cute online shops that you think would have some nice ones?! If yes, then let me know please!
Oh and guess who’s birthday is also just right around the corner?! Mine!
I’m in the process of planning some things. I’m turning 25! Quarter century already? Ugh scary. I’m going to a festive wine event tomorrow, girls night on Saturday and family bday celebrations on Sunday. Sounds pretty delightful to me <3
BEST FISH TACOS EVER!
So I told you guys I had a beach day in Newport and I definitely could not resist going to my favorite seafood spot. This place is perfect for a nice lunch after a hot beach day. I got the fresh ahi poke and shared a fish burrito and fish tacos with friends. So YUM
Here’s the recipe for those of you who want to make something similar at home <3
This recipe serves four..
- 4 (6 Ounce) Yellowtail Fillets
- 4 Tablespoons Chile Powder
- 4 Tablespoons Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Black Pepper
- Olive Oil
- Mango Salsa
Directions: Preheat outdoor grill to medium heat and oil the grates using a brush or paper towel. In a small bowl, mix the chile powder, salt, and pepper together. Coat the yellowtail fillets with a light layer of olive oil and sprinkle with the chile mixture. Place each fillet flesh side down on a hot grill and cook for about three minutes. Flip fillet over and cook for an additional three minutes. Remove from grill and top with Bear Flag Mango Sauce.
Mango Sauce Ingredients:
- 2 Fresh Mangoes, Small Dice
- 1 Medium Red Onion, Small Dice
- 1 Cucumber, Peeled, Seeded, Small Dice
- 2 Jalapeño Peppers, Minced
- 1/4 Cup Cilantro Leaves, Chopped
- 1/2 Tablespoons Chile Powder
- 2 Large Limes, Juiced

Make it as a taco or throw it in a burrito with rice and beans and voila…your masterpiece is ready!
Did someone say coconut paradise? This stuff smells phenomenal. I just want to douse my whole body in it, seriously.
Okay so remember when Hanna and I went to that Oh Hello Hair dinner with Kaitlynn Carter at that trendy spot in Silverlake?! Welp we have still been going strong with these hair masks. I try to mix it up between which ones I use but this is definitely on my list of top three. Other ones I use on a weekly basis are THIS and THIS.
For some reason my hair likes to go through different phases. Sometimes it’s healthy and shiny and then other times it’s dry and feels like straw. Literally. Um…what the heck? So I just be sure to give it a little extra TLC when I really know my hair needs it. This [OHH mask] is pretty simple when it comes to what’s inside…just coconut, argan and almond oils and they say to leave it in for about 30 minutes or until you feel necessary. I just put some extra on the ends and slept with it. My hair felt as smooth as butter this morning!! That’s more I like it. 😉
P.S. thanks to those who went and liked my video on Facebook! Means a lot. Now we HAVE to win haha 🙂

I FREAKING TRIED SURSTRÖMMING!
OMG Can you believe I did that? Okay I’ll give you guys the story. So I absolutely LOVE the [Kändis TV] team. I met them a couple months ago and they are just the sweetest people. They asked if I wanted to be a part of a mini web show and I said I was in, without having a clue of what we were doing! Smart? Probably not haha.
Turns out we were having a Swedish traditional meal with that nastyyyyyy fish. The second Caroline popped open that can, I seriously almost barfed from the smell. Have any of you guys tried it?!
Hope you guys like the vid <3
Um excuse me..where did the weekend go?! It seriously just flew by for me. I had a great couple days with friends and now drove back to Orange County earlier today. I met up with some friends in Newport Beach and hungout by the water and got lunch at one of my fave spots [Bear Flag Fish Co].
Just got to my parent’s house a couple hours ago and I wish you saw the reaction of Copper and Molly (my pups). They flew from one side of the house to the other, jumping over the couch and screaming of excitement…quite the nice welcome if you ask me. 🙂
How cute is my mom? She got caught in the act of instagramming and then makes this face. Gotta love her. <3
Hi babes! Here’s a photo from yesterday’s lunch. I had a spicy margarita (my favorite) with a crisp summer veggie salad and the ambiance of the place was exactly what we were in the mood for. 🙂
So I’m moving a bit slowly today due to last night’s festivities. I went out with a couple friends and went to The Roosevelt to one of their bars called Tropicana. So much fun, but definitely paying for it now. Ugh!
Hope you guys are all having a fantastic weekend.
KFPR PRIMETIME EMMY’S EVENT
Wearing: Romper/Blue Life
So I guess I was a bit motivated to wear a romper today because of my last post! I wore this little number today to a lovely PR event that took place at [Sunset Marquis Villas] in West Hollywood.
I love going to these types of events, because it is a chance to meet with wonderful people who are extremely passionate in what they do and get to share it with you. We met jewelry designers, skincare specialists, clothing designers and more. Each person had their own story to tell and it was so interesting to hear it all.
We left with some fun goodies that I can share with you throughout this next week! 🙂 Happy Friday babes.
