Tara Donovan's magical art

I recently discovered this artist on sfgirlbybay and was blown away by her art.  Her name is Tara Donovan and makes art installations out of everyday objects like cups and pencils.  Jaw-dropping is the first word that comes to my mind when I look at her work.  To see all of her work, check out her website.  Enjoy!

My fav furs fresh off of the streets of NYFW

Street Style

OK, well when I say "furs fresh off of the streets of NYFW" I don't mean roadkill ran over by a taxi filled with well dressed city-goers.  Even though the west coast may be transitioning into an early spring, the east coast is still in a frigid and snowy winter and their fur isn't going anywhere!  Check out GQ for the full slide show.  Thanks!

Say hello to spring!

Spring is right around the corner!  If you live around the south bay area of California like I do, then you know that you live in shorts and sandals during the spring and summer.  Check out this slideshow at GQ for the complete slideshow and to get some ideas for warm weather living. You may even get some Valentine's Day gift ideas so that you and your valentine can show off your beach bods in them!  Enjoy!

The Boy with the Arab Strap - Belle and Sebastian 

Gumtree shop and cafe, Hermosa Beach, CA

I hope that everyone has had a great day!  I thought that I would tell you all about my absolute most favorite restaurant in the south bay.  That spectacular cafe happens to be Gumtree shop and cafe!  It is owned by Will and Lori, a husband and wife duo.  Gumtree is a charming, little, refurbished beach house just up the street from the beach.  I can't go a week without getting my Gumtree fix!  Will works the cafe.  He was born in Australia then later moved to the states. Will is the the kindest, goofiest Aussie out there.  He has the best taste when it comes to Australian cuisine. Gumtree has the tastiest grill-pressed sandwiches and homemade soups.  You will always find yourself leaving the cafe with a happy belly.  Lori works the shop.  She was born and raised in Manhattan Beach and is the nicest, most lady-like woman you will ever meet.  Lori has the most impeccable style!  You will never find yourself leaving Gumtree's shop without buying something cute whether it's a Chan Luu bracelet or a stylish  accessory for your home.  Lori and Will make you feel at home every time that you enter Gumtree.  They live a truly bohemian life!  So if you're in the area, check out Gumtree and you will surely become addicted like I have.
