Eclipse at Mount Helix

Cozy sunset

On Sunday night Thomas and I headed to Mount Helix to watch the supermoon lunar eclipse. We got there an hour and a half early to ensure a good spot. The eclipse was gorgeous and well worth the wait. I stayed cozy in a sweater and dress combo look while watching. It was the perfect night.

Happy Fall! With summer gone, it’s time to transition our wardrobes to have cozier fabrics and warmer tones. Nothing says fall more than plaid prints, comfy sweaters, tall socks and vegan combat boots. While it may not look like fall in San Diego, I still enjoy a little fall shopping. My all time favorite fall look is an oversized comfy sweater worn over a lace slip paired with high knee socks. I have quite the collection of cozy fall socks, from lace trimmed to cable knit, I can’t get enough!

Vegan Gluten-Free Guide to Disneyland

Happy Thursday! I apologize for missing my usual Wednesday post but Tuesday we spent the day at Disneyland so I didn’t have a chance to prepare a post. But today I’m sharing a recap of our day and some tips for eating vegan and gluten-free while visiting Disneyland!


Pink and Plaid

Plaid dress for fallWith fall right around the corner, stores have begun to swap out the florals for plaid and warmer colors are abundant. Since San Diego is nowhere near cooling down, shopping for coats and sweaters is not an option. Luckily I was able to find a fall-ready plaid dress which will transition well into the cooler season.


Dreamy Almond Butter Vegan Smoothie

Rich and creamy almond butter vegan smoothies

Our go-to breakfast this summer has been these energizing almond butter vegan smoothies. They remind me of ice cream because they are so thick and creamy. I thought I could never skip my morning peanut butter smoothie until I ran out of peanut butter one day and turned to a jar of creamy almond butter. Since then I haven’t gone back!


Liberty Station

Over the Labor Day weekend, Thomas and I enjoyed a lovely date night at Liberty Station. We started at with drinks at Stone Brewery and then walked over to the bay to watch the sunset. I got a little dressy in a floral dress and a quilted bag by Deux Lux since I seize every opportunity to put on a fancier ensemble.

Chocolate Fudge Gluten-Free Cake Recipe

You know those days where all you want is a slice of chocolate cake? That was the kind of day I had yesterday (well really all week I had been craving cake). I feel like chocolate is the remedy for everything and this gluten-free cake recipe certainly is the cure for bad days! It’s so fudgy and moist, you would have no clue it’s vegan or gluten-free!


True Cost

The True Cost: A movie about how our clothes are made and the true cost of fast fashion

A few weeks ago I finally got around to watching The True Cost when I was sick in bed with a bad cold. I had been meaning to watch it since it came out and a sick day seemed like the perfect opportunity. It’s impossible to not feel compelled to rethink your wardrobe after watching the movie so I wanted to share some thoughts on it with you all today!
