psst.

to all my fashion-forward, kittens:

listen up, this is not to be missed.

tomorrow, friday august 1st, running for three days, mary jo matsumoto is having a have-you-lost-your-mind!?!? flash sale on her website; we’re talking 50% off the already, reduced prices—i had to email mary jo twice for clarification on sale; i couldn’t believe the bags were actually going to be available at these prices.

they are.

all of my most beloved mjm bags are available:

{clockwise from top left}

the bridge tote, the linen + leather tote, the trestles tote, and my summer favorite, the newport harbor tote.

here’s me last summer showing off my newport harbor tote, and tomorrow you can get it half off.

crazy cakes!

need to get a jumpstart on the holidays?

the cloudy with a chance of surfing tote, the pink snakeskin print clutch, the cloudy with a chance of surfing wallet and the myth hunter tartan wallet all make the best christmas presents.

and my most favorite bag, in the history of bags, the knot clutch, will also be available for 50% off the already reduced price.

start staking out your booty now–and then on friday, august 1st the 50% flash sale code goes into play {it will be on mary jo’s website.}

happy shopping m’loves.

california LOVE

July 29, 2014

california (1 of 1).jpg

as if my love for all things california couldn’t get more visceral, yesterday my EUREKA! state showered me with the sweetest summer storm.

nothing to get an umbrella out for, but just enough of mother earth’s sprinkle and humidity to get the tongues wagging about hair frizz and a futile, sunday morning car wash.

the weather was begging me to wear my new billabong pullover hoodie, a french terry knit, with a vintage rope draw-cord, and califorina flag print.

it’s the perfect layer for nights at the beach, and will be great when the weather really starts to cool down.

and in keeping with my ode to california, this tupac/jason derulo mash up will be making an appearance this week in spin class for my peeps who “know how to partay!”

california love to you!

a cherry on top….

July 28, 2014

lately it’s been the romancing of the cherry around these parts.

suckered in by a farmers’ market sample, i practically bought the stand out of these sweet and sour candies.

most afternoons you can find me at my desk with a bowlful of these summer, baby stone fruits.

of the many benefits cherries offer, one of my favorites is their natural melatonin supply; a hormone that lowers body temperature and makes us sleepy.

i’m not quite sure if it IS the cherries, but our sleep has been very sound {apparently it rained last night.}

as it gets warmer, even during the evening, we try not to go too heavy on our dinner; a cheese plate teeming with cherries has been the go-to meal of late.

oh my gosh!?!? a cherry/goat cheese/honey drizzle is probably the best combo-bite in town right now.

cherries are also rich in queritrin, an anti-oxidant that not only boosts exercise endurance, but has anti-cancer benefits as well.

some people have reported a decrease in their migraines due to cherries’ anthocyanin and bioflavonoids properties; these compounds mimic aspirin and ibuprofen in the body.

while i {and priscilla} can’t think of anything better than eating them straight off the stem, finger-food style, cherries always make a splash in summer recipes.

i would definitely help myself to seconds {and maybe thirds} of this fresh cherry cobbler.

this cherry salsa, served over grilled fish or bruschetta, is screaming to be served at your next bbq.

and to keep everyone on the dance floor, these cherry mojitos  are just as vital to your summer block party as your playlist.

what are your favorite ways to eat cherries?

william

pitting the cherries is as easy as downing that mojito; the gadgets they have make it super simple.

my oxo pitter does a fine job, but how fantastic is this cherry pitter from william sonoma ↑

hurry up, cherry season is almost over and we’ll soon have to break-up until next summer {cue sad lana del rey music.}

monday happy to you m’loves.
