Meet Louis | How To Care For Your Guinea pig

So, not only did my Sunday consist of doing loads, and loads of laundry, doing some fall cleaning around the house, and furniture re-arranging, but for about a few weeks now, i’ve had this huge urge that I need something new to spark up my life.

10710913_10153384714103868_6444831363733205937_n (1) With that being said, yes I was bored, and was literally going to the pet store for a fish, and well…my mom talked me into getting a guinea pig.

Growing up, I had 3 guinea pigs, “Brownie”, who was clearly all brown, “Midnight”, who was obviously all black, and “Neo”, who was pink, brown, and white.

Guinea pigs are my all time favorite animal, because it’s basically like having a miniature dog, and yes, you can totally walk them.

I thought I would share with you guys a little bit about Louis, and a few facts that you should know before you get your own guinea pig!

My Favorite Fall Skincare Items From Clean + Clear | Fall Beauty


Now that fall has fully kicked into season, the cooler the weather, the dryer my skin gets.

Ever since I was in high school, I have always stayed true to Clean and Clear products, because my skin is super sensitive in general, and I tend to never outbreak when I use their products.

A funny little side fact, is that when I was about 12 years old, I actually used a face wash brand called Clearasil, and their “Acne Ice Wash Gel Cleanser”, little did I know, that as soon as I washed this off my skin, basically my entire skin had peeled off, and my face was cherry red for about 2-3 days. It was awful.

So, remember that it always is super important to get the right products for your face, especially during the cooler season, because you never know if you could have an allergic reaction.

With that being said, recently two of my favorites from the Clean and Clear line has been, “The Blackhead Eraser“, and “The Morning Burst Facial Cleanser“.

So below, I thought I would list for you guys, a few of my very own favorites products from their line, that I feel would be perfect for the fall season.


1. Morning Burst Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Mama Hahns Homemade Clambake | Recipe

So this week, I traveled back home to Ohio for my cousins wedding, and was over the moon excited when my mom had let me know that it’s clambake season!

It’s not really too much of a “trend” here in LA, but back east it’s practically a tradition in Ohio.

Growing up, I always had a crazy love for seafood and so, I figured that I would list below the steps on how to make the perfect fall clambake, based off of how my mom put together a clambake growing up.

1 What you’ll need:

+ 2 bags of clams { depending on how many people your feeding, us 3 had 2 bags, which equaled to 100 clams }

+ 8 red potatoes

+ 1 can of chicken broth

+  1 1/2 cups of butter, or just 1 stick of butter

+ A few slices of celery for flavor

+  3 stalks of corn { cut each corn in half }

+ 3 chicken breasts

3 Directions:

  1. Place the potatoes in a layer, in the bottom of a large pot. Cover with a layer of clams, then chicken, then corn, and then celery around the edges for flavor. Pour in enough chicken broth to fill the pot halfway.
  2. Cut a half cup of butter into cubes and place on top of the seafood. Cover with a lid, and seal tightly with aluminum foil.
  3. Bring the pot to a boil, then simmer over medium-low heat for just about 45 minutes.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat, and carefully remove the foil and the lid. Remove the seafood and potatoes from the broth and then begin to serve, however you would like. Preferably on a large plate, and everyone can take their own portions.


Juicy Couture X Kohls | A Night To Remember

A few weeks ago, I got the news that Juicy Couture was going to launch at Kohls.

Being originally from Ohio, I am a HUGE fan of Kohls department stores, and basically the word “designer” in a nut shell, does not exist over in Ohio, so I was pretty excited that Juicy Couture was going to partner up with Kohls, and bring a line into the store.

We’re use to seeing Simply Vera by Vera Wang, and LC by Lauren Conrad, so as big as Juicy Couture is, it’s pretty awesome that they’ve partnered up with Kohls.

I had the chance to attend the Juicy Couture and Kohls launch party in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago, and here are a few photos from the lovely, lovely evening.



Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the Juicy Couture X Kohls line:

Change Is Good But Travel Is Better| Travel

I’m sure if you guys are an avid reader of the blog for about the past year, and 1/2, you know that I travel home quite frequently.

If you’re new to the blog,’home’ for me is Cleveland, Ohio.

I would totally love to write the entire story of why I moved out to Los Angeles from Cleveland, but since i’ve been in Los Angeles from the time I was 18, that would be a pretty long story, haha! I will write about it eventually though!

Home for me, includes my mom, my dad, and close knit family relatives. Oh, and I can’t forget my crazy, weird dog, Rambo, who I actually shipped from California back to Ohio.

When I tell most people that i’m from Cleveland, the majority of people think I am either out of mind, or totally lying. What is a blonde girl, 5 foot 3, and talks like she is from the valley, doing in Cleveland.

Well, I am actually from the suburbs of Cleveland, and grew up outside of the city itself. Cleveland is actually an amazing city, despite what one may think.

We do have the cold, the snow, and my all time favorite, the ever changing seasons, which you cannot get on the west coast.

Growing up in a small suburb, my parents yard is probably the size of a farm, and a step inside our house, felt like you were in a cozy state of mind in the middle of nowhere.

You would run into your best friends at the local grocery store, or your worst enemies no matter what day of the week it was during high school, because that’s just how small the town I grew up in was.

Cleveland itself, is proudly now expanding, adding places like “The Westin”, “The Horseshoe Casino”, “The 9″, and you’ve probably heard a few words about the city in an infamous Machine Gun Kelly song.

Being a Cleveland native, I figured that I would share with you guys a few of my favorite photos in the city, as well as a few of my favorite places.

New Blog Lovin | Kaitlynn Carters Western Wild

Barely ever, do I pick up a magazine at a local market anymore, and actually read it. Sad, I know…

I feel like in todays society though, blogging has totally become the “IT” read, and we all just kind of forget about picking up a magazine, or a book for that matter.

Usually, when I start off my mornings, I love having just a simple, good ol’ cup of coffee, and I like to usually pick out 3 of my favorite online blogs to do a morning read, and one of my favorite blogs has recently been, Kaitlynn Carters blog, Western Wild.


 I think her blog is super, super chic, and I just love that it’s about real life topics, and hobbies that we basically all do in our every day lives.

Her blog Western Wild, includes sections like, “Dating“, “Food“, “Beauty“, “Travel“, and much, much more.

You can also shop her looks, by clicking “Shop“, on her blog. Um, how cute is that?


5 Favorites By Ekaterina Kukhareva | Ekaterina Kukhareva

If you’ve been an avid reader of the blog, for quite some time now, you know that I love talking about new brands, and new designers.

This week, I was introduced to Ekaterina Kukhareva, and her spring/summer collection for 2015.

Her spring/summer collection captures the island life style with artisan knitwear depicting Parrots, Flamingos, Hibiscus and Pineapples. Her spring/summer palette is rich with limes, cerise and peaches, off set by Steel Blues and Aqua.

I love that the colors in this collection are so vibrant and welcoming, and totally speak the season of spring, and summer.

Here are 5 of my favorite pieces from her line:

Fall Closet | First Look Of Fall

I hope you all are having a great Sunday so far.

Yesterday, I finally started off on the adventure of going out to purchase new fall clothes. I’ve been in Ohio, visiting family for my cousins wedding, and let me tell you that fall, has really kicked into gear here. The leaves are falling, the weather is dropping from 70 to 40, and well, just about every coffee shop I visit here sells a ‘Pumpkin Spice Latte‘.

So this week, I broke into my fall clothes, transitioning from summer to fall colors, and choosing sweaters, and long sleeves, over t-shirts and tank tops.
