Mike and I are excited to be a part of Kyle and Colleen's special day. One of my favorite parts of a wedding is seeing the bride in her dress. The bride always looks so beautiful that it doesn't matter if they are a relative or close friend, I get star struck as if they were a celebrity!

Here are some fancy gowns that would definitely cause me to be star struck:

Mike's Mug
Sarah's Mug
Pinks is one of those food places that is a must to eat at while your in Los Angeles, it may have even been on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Last year I went for the first time and got a chili dog. I went again for the first time since I moved to LA and this time I got the Lord of the Rings Dog. It was messy but yummy.
I could have done with a little less BBQ sauce...it was all over me haha
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner
Cashmere Glow Body Spray and Lotion, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Lotion
Aveda Comforting Tea
Mike and I are trying to eat healthy during the week but I get bored of eating the same thing. When I saw this stuffed bell pepper recipe on Lauren Conrad's blog I knew it would be a healthy way to try something different and have some variety. Below are some pictures of how they turned out:
It's really rare that I follow a recipe exactly so I did change it a little. I added a can of black beans and diced up a can of mexican seasoned stewed tomatoes instead of using cherry tomatoes. For the sausage I used hot turkey sausage. Mike topped his with hot sauce and siracha and I topped mine with a little siracha sauce. They were really good and I will definitely be making these again!

This bow hairstyle looks so cute. I need to learn how to do this. I attempted a similar style for my LA b-day dinner but it came out really messy...maybe it will work better when my hair is longer.

This braid is nice for a casual hairstyle. I know I can do this one.

I think this style would look romantic when my hair is curled. I would need to find some bobby pins for this.

Just For Fun:

I could never do this on myself and my hair is too layered and not long enough but it looks pretty cool.

Last year on my birthday I was visiting Mike in LA. Now, 1 year later, we are both living together in LA!

Here is the slideshow from my visit last year:
The funny thing is now that I live in LA, I am visiting home, (Philly), for my birthday. I am excited to be spending time with family and friends.
I'm at Meemo's house and I am hoping to get some of her famous desserts:
Meemo's Chocolate Cream Cake
Meemo's brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and cupcakes
Stop over and you can say Happy Birthday and maybe you can get a dessert too!

Last but not least - Shout out to my birthday twin Uncle Bill, Happy Birthday!
I use a fashion App on my phone called Pose and it is also online at Pose.com. It's a photo sharing site like Pinterest but it is geared towards fashion and beauty.
These are some looks I like for fall:

Overslept and running late as usual, she barely remembers to grab her jacket as she runs out the door, but is soon glad she did. This October morning is a bit chilly.

As she walks up to the café she sees him already sitting at one of the outside tables. She is quickly reminded that the new guy she is dating is the hottest guy she’s ever seen. The changing colors of the leaves and the bright blue sky just magnify his looks even more. And he pays attention because he’s already ordered for her, her favorite fall drink, pumpkin spice latte, and a big giant snickerdoodle cookie, fresh out of the oven.

She starts to apologize for being late but he’s just excited to see her. He smiles and goes to give her a hug.  She hugs him and after rushing around all morning, it’s the first chance she's had just to breathe.  Her nose is filled with the light scent of his cologne mixed with his body wash, and the crisp fall air, with the smells from the café drifting through. She doesn’t know if it’s the fresh start of a new season or the new hope and potential she has found with this amazing man, but in that moment she feels relaxed, happy, and content.

That moment…that scent…is captured in this candle:
Limited Edition - Autumn Harvest

The Limited Edition Autumn Harvest Candle at Target

Since last year I have been obsessed with Target's soy based jar candles. They are not sold online, only in store. The large sizes are $10 and the small are $5. They burn more evenly and the scent spreads around the room better than the candles from bath & body works, in my opinion.
 I suggest you go to Target and smell these amazing candles. They are in the candle aisle at the "endcap" (end of the aisle).
We went to Hermosa Beach for a wine tasting at Uncorked and after the tasting we walked over to the beach and played on one of the swing sets they have there.
We stayed to see a beautiful sunset.
Another day it was supposed to be 100 degrees, I went to Santa Monica beach with Nicole and Suzy, where we actually laid out and went in the ocean. I like Santa Monica beach because they have the beach, shopping, and rides.
