Thanksgiving Prep With Milk & Eggs

This might be one of my favorite times of the year, as I'm sure it's yours too. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I'm betting... well, we'll end up sifting through crazy grocery store aisles on the hunt for the same things as everyone else (I know, we never plan it that way, but it happens).

If you're local to the Los Angeles area, then ordering online might be your best friend. A few months ago I started ordering my groceries from Milk & Eggs– a local, free grocery delivery service that offers a variety of organic, fresh foods. It's been the easiest way to get everything I need right to my door the next day, and there's the option of a one-time purchase or a subscription. (See my first experience here)

I also ordered my essentials for Thanksgiving and loved their new selection (they keep adding new things all the time) and wanted to share a bit of my spread.

Not to mention, I love how they always update their new items on the homepage, as well as new recipes and ideas using their food if you ever need ideas:

Bishop & Young: Plunging Line Maxi

Bishop & Young hooked me with their darker romantic pieces, including this Plunging Neck Line Maxi. It has an elegant neckline with an open back and a flowy body that's perfect for the upcoming Holiday season. Details below:

October Gift Guide With Urban Outfitters

It's that time of year and it's never too early to start eyeing the potential Holiday gifts. I get so much joy from finding new things around this time of year, especially because I love giving gifts. In the last few years, I've grown so fond of Urban Outfitter's holiday selections, especially since they've expanded so much within many of their departments, and it goes without saying that they're quite addicting & fun. 

For the next three months I'll be sharing my favorites items for gifts and some quick guides to make your shopping a bit easier :) See some of my few selects for October below:

Glimpses in Fall

Captured a few moments from my weekend visiting Petals and Pop; a floral shop that fueled my soul with their romantic ethereal arrangements. LA is a little slower to the Fall season, so finding any spaces to capture that has been much needed.

Made a visit to Rancho Los Alamitos and their space was so peaceful to set up a spot and soak it in for a while. It was my first time visiting and already can't wait to be back.

Lastly, this little beauty couldn't have been a more perfect addition to my weekend. I had a painting made for me that summed up a beautiful part of life's process: duality: from death to life. Throughout everything we face, a part of us has inevitably experienced pain and something in us has 'died', so to speak. But when has there not been something beautiful that's grown from it? We experience that duality constantly.
