Back in October we took a peek into my bedroom/office, but what you didn’t see was the actual bed. That’s because it’s located eight feet above the floor on stilts. That’s right, I sleep in an adult bunk bed. With angled walls and my massive amounts of stuff, I needed a way to maximize the small bedroom. Fortunately, this apartment has high ceilings, meaning I’m not bonking my head when I wake up from a nightmare.
I had to nix the fancy-oversized-throw-pillows merely for the lack of space up there. To create a less claustrophobic feel, I wanted bright and airy bedding that would open up the room for an inviting, fresh vibe. I absolutely love the feel of these Crane & Canopy sheets – they honestly feel like a blanky from my childhood.
The stitching towards the bottom of the duvet adds texture without overpowering the entire loft. I love ALL white, but wanted to lose the hotel feel by going with a subtle grey pattern.
My favorite part about Crane & Canopy (besides the reasonable prices) is that a portion of the proceeds are donated to A Safe Night’s Sleep, which benefits women and children affected by domestic violence.
James Franco approved.
Now that you’ve seen my bedroom, office and living room (will need to update this one – lots of changes!), it’s time to tackle the kitchen. Yikes!
After living in San Francisco for almost five years now, I’ve gained a greater appreciation for walking. When I used to live in the ‘burbs, driving was a part of everyday life – today, I can probably go a full week without hopping into a car. While I enjoy exploring the City on foot, I know James LOVES it so it’s a great excuse for Tyler and I to get out of the house. Since it’s Summer everywhere outside of San Francisco, we’ve been taking short weekend trips across the bridge where I’m usually sporting leggings and sneakers. Although you won’t find me rock climbing or mountain biking, I dare you to challenge me in a speed walking contest >_<

I am absolutely loving the slip dress trend, especially those with lace trim. They’re sexy, feminine and modern. Dress them up for work with tights and a blazer or go casual with a denim jacket and sandals. For the sake of this collage, I used this dress as an example, but there are many affordable options available – see below! While I usually lean towards sleek and chic, I’m kind of obsessed with the tassel necklace and printed bag look on the right. How would you wear a cami slip dress??

I was shopping online and noticed my cart was filled with neutrals. I’m most comfortable in shades of grey (harhar); charcoal, taupe and heather . It pairs nicely with other colors, day or night, and can be dressed up or down. I like to call it white & black’s love child.
I had an amazing time in Vegas last weekend. From the food to the pool parties, my friends and I made the most of a scorching hot, three day trip. I wore this colorblocked dress (sans the jacket) to XS on the first night. As we were walking through the hotel a girl stopped me, touched my stomach and said, “OMG, I love your dress!” I’m pretty sure she was drunk, but she sounded very convincing.
