Saturday Styles in LA 2/13

Everyone is wondering, “What happened to El Nino?” Yeah, me too! I just bought a utility jacket that I actually like and now it’s waay too hot to even wear it (sad face.) And I don’t want to shave my legs to wear shorts. (more…)

Valentine’s Cinnamon Rolls

I’m not usually one to celebrate consumer targeted Hallmark holidays that cater to corporate America (who am I kidding? That pretty much sums up all of our holidays), but Valentine’s day is a really great excuse to eat a ton of sugar and not feel bad about it.

Good afternoon readers!
Today is a beautiful day that needs to be enjoyed outside. But first, let me give you a quick Valentine’s Day DIY since that special day is coming up right around the corner.

Generation Beauty 2016 Mini Recap

Salmon Cakes

Seattle is pretty much known for two things: coffee and rain. It is, however, also known for it’s amazingly fresh seafood and if you’re out for brunch, you know there will be salmon somewhere on the menu.
