Sweet & Saucy Teams up with Sweet Lucie's Ice Cream

Monday, September 22, 2014


Yesterday was the last day of summer, I can't believe how fast this year is flying by! With these sweltering temperatures in LA, you can bet that the summer sun might stick around a few days weeks longer! Why not make the most of the heat with some delicious organic ice cream treats?! (Like I need a reason to eat ice cream!)

Chris and I are huge fans of Sweet & Saucy. Their candy bar cupcakes are the BEST!!! We used them for our dessert table at our wedding, and they did such an amazing job. Everything was beautiful and incredibly tasty too! We even ate our wedding cake on our 1 month anniversary instead of our one year...we are still learning patience.  ;)

And then we discovered that Sweet & Saucy recently partnered up with Sweet Lucie's to add ice cream treats to their menu! Obviously we were pretty excited to try them out! Sweet Lucie's has the cutest story of how their company started, and their ice cream flavors are absolutely delicious.

Their ice cream selection includes Red Velvet, Milk and Cookies, Candy Bar, and Pumpkin Spice. So many good flavors to choose from, but my favorite was probably the Pumpkin Spice! Just enough pumpkin flavor to make you crave all things fall! Then again, I can't pass up an all-American chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich either. Chris loved the strawberry macaroon ice cream sandwich the best, which surprised us both, as he isn't even a huge fan of macaroons!

My advice: don't wait to eat these delicious ice cream treats! As you can see in the pictures, it won't take long to melt so eat them fast! I'm sure you didn't really need any encouragement for that ;)


DLD goes to Chicago

Friday, September 19, 2014


Last weekend, Chris and I visited family in Chicago. As I mentioned on Wednesday, we were pretty happy with the chilly temperatures. It was over 100 degrees in LA that weekend, so it was great to escape the heat for a few days!

Design LIfe Diaries #linkup #fall #booties #hat

Chris and I went to Chicago last weekend, where we traded the high 90's of California for some much cooler 50's and 60's temperatures. Let me just say, I was pretty excited about this! Packing for the trip I was digging through drawers and closets to find all my favorite fall items. Not to mention a great dark lip to complete that chilly weather look!

Hello beauties! Today is a new first on DLD... my very first video tutorial!! I was so happy that many of you have commented and emailed your requests for a tutorial on this hairstyle (as seen in this style post), and I wanted it to be as simple and easy to follow as I could possibly make it. 

Life and Style Linkup: Animal Print

Wednesday, September 10, 2014


Wow, this past week flew by so fast! It's another Life and Style Linkup today, and this week the beauties of Posh Pair and I are showcasing our favorite way to wear animal prints. As you've probably noticed, all three of us chose to highlight some leopard print shoes. The best part is, we had no idea what the other girls were wearing for the linkup! I guess that's how you know you're collaborating with the right bloggers :)

Leather and Diamonds

Friday, September 5, 2014


Happy Friday! Today is my first glimpse into fall fashion, and with cooler weather (hopefully soon!) comes sweaters, leather, and diamonds! Ok ok, diamonds are in season year round ;) For this look I'm wearing my favorite combo: feminine with a little edge! What better way to accomplish that than with a leather skirt and some Kate Spade diamonds!
