DIY Baby Career Reveal Cake

My boyfriend A and I have been getting into all sorts of arguments and disagreements recently and it’s honestly been really upsetting. At first I thought it was because of the full moon (him being a Gemini and all) but when I started to push him to talk he finally dropped a major bomb… His wife is pregnant. AGAIN. I was beyond shocked- here he won’t even give me an engagement ring but he’s all ready to give her a baby?…

Your Guide to Poormet

Raise your hand if you’ve experienced any of the following problems: You’re a recent grad with a low paying job just wishing you could enjoy a nice meal every once in a while. You want to have great food photography on Insta… but your boyfriend is too cheap to take you out every night. You accidentally spent your paycheck on lipstick and bulgogi but still want to enjoy a good dinner at Chez Panisse. Your boyfriend doesn’t want to take you…

A Drinkable Superfood

Last week A introduced me to what is probably my newest fave superfood. I am LITERALLY crazy about it, it is changing the way I live my life! I definitely had heard of it before- but to be honest I was never really interested in trying it before because it sounded pretty bland. It wasn’t until we were out at dinner last week and A offered me a sip that I realized I have totally been missing out. And THEN…

Impress Your Guests: Star-Studded Place Cards

I’ll be completely honest here, I find my sister’s boyfriend (C) a little weird and dark… He has a strange obsession with Venetian masks and often will spend entire meals staring at the ceiling without eating or saying a word. My sister find all of these things cute and quirky- she often refers to him as her masculine Zooey Deschanel. I just don’t see it. Needless to say this past weekend, when my sister invited me and A over for a double…

Vin et Fromage Cocktail

This weekend I was lucky enough to attend a bloggers only retreat in LA hosted by a (blogger) friend of mine- it was absolutely exquisite. We dined, we laughed, and we all shared our favorite stories about being full time bloggers (I’ll have to do a post on this later, some of them were hilarious- I’m talking about you, Sherman!!). The best part of it all? The retreat was complete with a personal french chef for each of us. I…

The Meatini

Yesterday was a hard day at Des Geulasse headquarters. I’ll be perfectly honest here… my sister and I don’t believe in democracy or really any form of leadership. But that being said, even if we did we would still have a hard time accepting Donald Trump as our president. We spent the majority of the day yesterday crying and staring at our Instagram feeds, trying to understand where everything went wrong. We also refrained from posting. The DIY Hillary Clinton…

LA Trend Watch: Wine Touching

I just had the girliest weekend ever and I swear I have #noregrets. Primrose and I went out with a few of our dear friends to do some wine tasting, get manicures, and just total gossip about our love lives non-stop. It was so amazing and EXACTLY the kind of weekend I needed to relax and detox. You see recently things with A have been a little rough. He’s been acting a little distant ever since I told him he needed…

Have you ever been in a relationship that you just knew wasn’t right? Like, you enjoy the company of the person you’re with but you just don’t love them?

Ice Cube Love Letters

I am always desperately searching for new ways to show A I care- and one of my favorite ways is to leave him little notes in creative ways. I love the look on his face when he discovers them (he always acts so embarrassed, it’s adorable!) and I really love knowing I’ve given him a little piece of my literary soul in a physical form. I recently tried a little something that I think ALL OF YOU need to do…

DIY Art Deco Ice Cubes

With the summer season literally around the corner, I think most of us are ready to break out those ice cold drinks in tall glasses while we lounge by the poolside. I mean honestly, is there anything better than sipping a margarita on the rocks while soaking up the sun?? Personally I like to take my drinks game to the next level by focusing on the details. A mini umbrella, cute straw or even slices of fruit are so easy to…
