A Christmas Card Alternative

Happy Monday! …Sort of an oxymoron huh? Lol. On the brightside, today will help us get one day closer to our Thanksgiving break (and Christmas!).

I made this fun little video using the Magisto app. The app itself is free but you’ll have to pay a dollar to save your video to your phone or you can sign up for their paid monthly subscription which allows you to save all your videos.

It’d be super cute to make little videos like this for family and friends this Christmas. You can send them out in place of your yearly Christmas cards. That will save you atleast $20-$40 dollars.!

The holiday season tends to hit the pocket book pretty hard so I thought you might be interested in the Magisto app.

Let me know how you plan to save to money this Christmas!

Oh so lovely readers,

I need to warn you. Things will be getting a little …random….around here. Lol But it’ll be fun! Sometimes you have to just stop over-thinking everything and just do what you feel! You know what I mean? So I’m going to let my creative, random, adventure seeking self take over and just go with the flow.

And lucky for me, my boyfriend is coming along for the ride ;)

So what randomness do we have for you today? Well, check out our dramatic cooking trailer above to find out!

Lots of love,


Spring Lookbook!

OOTD: Casual Shore Day

I attended the most beautiful beach wedding ever. I owe you photos! The drive itself up to Pismo beach was gorgeous. If you’re an LA local looking to get away and don’t mind a 4hr road trip, head to Pismo! I decided to wear something comfy and cute for the ride home. I’m wearing a Joie blouse, jeans from Ross $12, and Toms $44
