this was definitely my favorite photo from the trip. these hammocks were right outside of and they were calling our names the whole time.

i went to mexico with my boyfriend and my two friends & ryan. it ended up being such a perfect trip…and most of all it was easy! cabo is a short 2 hour flight from los angeles which is really nice.

i did a little post when i was there and told you about …i always ate there with my family as a kid so it was really special to be able to share this place with my friends as well. simple food, spicy salsa and fresh ingredients. we loved it so much, we ate there three days in a row.

another amazing food spot is ! they have local cuisine & some of the best shrimp & lobster i’ve ever had. all for 16 bucks. i can’t stop thinking about how delicious that meal was…

we went on a tequila tasting tour with (we also went on a glass bottom boat ride!) and i spotted this little plant sitting against this ridiculously colorful pink wall.

also took us to a bunch of the beautiful surfing beaches (my boyfriend loves to surf!) we also spent part of the day hunting for mexican blankets that we could bring home and hang in the windows of our new house. success photo

if you watch the video below, you will see it took me about 7 minutes to actually get situated in this hammock. all while looking like a total fool. it was pretty hilarious. (and how pretty are those color choices on the hammocks?!)

it’s hard to completely take off work because i really enjoy my job…but a was a pretty nice change.

we rented scooters for a few days and rode all around town. i was actually pretty scared to do it at first, but by the end of the trip i was loving it. i haven’t seen my guy that happy in a long while, so it was definitely worth getting over a little fear.

this month i decided i was going to take care of myself. worry a little less, take some more time to myself, and be more spontaneous. my life is really scheduled out and i tend to get really wrapped up in stress…so it was nice to just book these plane tickets randomly one day and let the rest work itself out. thank you for the awesome & also to for showing me around parts of cabo that i had never seen before! like i said, i spent years going to cabo with my family over the summer and it holds a great spot in my heart.

oh! and the video. and I shot some super 8 on our iphones (you can get the app ) and i put together of all of our days there. and that boppy song? that’s all thanks to sharing an office with the best dj (!) who always gets wonderful music stuck in our heads. this brenton wood song was played over and over on our trip…

thanks for following along on our trip! -bri


STYLE / 51

i just have so much fun coming together with my friends and dreaming up new concepts for these style shoots. this month we wanted to do something completely different than the last time i shot with .

for the month of may there will be 4 very different looks each tuesday. we were lucky enough to team up with (an awesome shopping ) to make these funky shoots possible! each week, i will be creating get the look collections that go along with each outfit!

i always put together mood boards for my photographers and stylists so they can get a feeling for the shoot and know how to prepare. i also just really enjoy making them. i thought you might like to see where my ideas came from and a little behind the scenes on the process of these shoots…

…and can we talk about how funny it is that i remembered after the shoot about that child model photo of me right above! wow, i look the same as my 3 year old self!

i knew i wanted to have a tux for one of the looks. i just love the menswear look with little hits of femininity (like those amazing feather trimmed )

luckily my boyfriend is making a behind the scenes video of all of these shoots combined! (coming out on the 4th week!) in the video you will see me dancing & posing like a straight up fool for this series. it’s a good thing knows how to make me look somewhat normal in the photos.

if you know me, you know i love all things jazz. you can find me driving around town in my convertible gettin’ doooown to some soul music. it’s just something that really makes me really happy. so the photos were also inspired from that.

see you back here next tuesday for the next shoot! it’s quite bright!

i have been thinking a lot about friendship lately. you know how it’s easy to get busy, lose touch, and even grow apart from people? i think it’s only natural for people to take different paths in life, but sometimes i get really sad about it. friendship, like any relationship, takes a lot of work. you have to go out of your way to make time.

some of my happiest moments in life are when i forget about what i am doing that day and can sit down with friends for a good meal. luckily, my friends and i have a weekly friday breakfast plan that we all make time for in our busy schedules. and now i know never to schedule work on friday mornings. it’s an hour out of the week that keeps my life normal. it also gives me something to look forward to.

do you find it hard to schedule regular time with friends? in LA, if you live on the other side of town, it’s almost like living in another state!

we found out we will be moving out of our loft in the next couple of months. it’s crazy that i just wrote this post just a few days ago and then found out the people we rent from are going to be selling it. i am trying not to freak out and look at this as a new adventure. i knew i wouldn’t live in that loft forever. i am excited to see what’s next…

i have now lived downtown in an apartment across from FIDM, west hollywood in a spanish style home, silver lake in a 1920’s craftsman house, and the arts district loft i am in now. I think i enjoyed my time in silver lake the most, so i can definitely see us heading back there…

i guess i also have a whole new decorating project ahead of me! i thought was cool. i especially loved those framed graphic prints in her living room!



a few months ago i put together an LA Breakfast Food Guide…a list of a bunch of my favorite places to start the day. people seemed to enjoy it and gave me a lot of great recommendations as well.

again, I am sure you have heard me talk about quite a few of these spots, but hey it’s nice to have them all in one spot to reference. I tried to give a nice variety in case you wanted to go on a food tour one week. I always think it’s fun to spend a week trying all new restaurants, it makes you feel like you are on vacation in your own city.

i’ve had such great memories at all of these restaurants, i hope you try some of them out! and be sure fill me in on your favorite LA eats, ok? (mine are mostly east side / downtown area)
