I made my Best Banana Bread Recipe into fresh muffins & it’s even better (update: use 3 overripe organic bananas for best consistency) they’re vegan & gluten free

My favorite hue I shared last week lasted me 9 whole days! My usual run is 3-4 with polish. This polish & top coat are amazing.

Friday Finds

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect black leather jacket for ages. I scooped up a Michael Kors version while in LA.

I’m in love with the color palette of this photo. It was a perfect day for an outdoor brunch.

As you may know, I have to stop by Drybar whenever I’m visiting a lucky city that has a location. Getting a Drybar blowout at home? Yes, please! I’m really impressed with these fab products. [1|2|3]

It was such a delight coming home to warm weather and sunshine. I couldn’t wait to throw on my running shoes and go outside.

I just purchased a juicer, and I’m borderline obsessed. Spinach, cucumber, celery, apple & lemon is my current favorite combo. I’d love to hear your favorite juice recipes!

Cali Bound

En route to la la land for Lucky Magazine’s FABB Conference, I took an early morning flight from Pittsburgh. I was delightfully surprised when I stepped off the plane in San Francisco to see the array of great shopping. I ventured into Mango and spotted a pair of distressed skinny jeans in a light wash, that make a great Spring staple, and a pair of embellished denim shorts.

On the search for healthy options, I came across Fraîche, a homemade, organic yogurt spot, offering fresh pressed juice, and gluten free, vegan yogurts, I was definitely in my glory. San Fran is holding the top spot of favorite airports, thus far.

After a short flight to LA, I headed to my favorite LA spot, The Grove, to meet up with my friend I am staying with for a little shopping.

I was so happy to be in the Cali sun, and inspired, found an bright hued ensemble to wear to Day 1 of the conference.

Heading over to the Farmer’s Market, we had dinner at The Veggie Grill, which has a kale salad that was to die for, (definitely my new favorite spot!)

Stylehaus hosted a pre-fabb soiree, equipped with cocktails, beauty and great gifts. I can’t wait to try out the Aloxxi line of product.
