BINGESTAGRAM / LOS ANGELES BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

Featured-Image-Los-Angeles-Birthday-Weekend

If I can’t celebrate my birthday in Tulum like I did for my 4.0 last year, Los Angeles for the weekend is the next best thing. Here’s what my (pre) Birthday Weekend looked like: Loverboy had a work event at the BCBG 25 Year Retrospective. I agreed to be his arm candy. Trolled Trousdale Estates in […]

WEARSTLER WORTHY

avalon-bar-Recovered

I’m headed to L.A. to rendezvous with Loverboy for business/pleasure (that’s fancy for he’s in NYC, I’m in Portland, we’re meeting up).  My Business: One top-secret meeting (wish me luck). One marketing meeting at Petty Cash. More luck. One day of city-guide scouting on Abbott Kinney, probs with some lunch at Gjelina. One day at Unique LA. Few nights […]

UNDER THE INFLUENCE / GLENN LAWSON & GRANT FENNING

Under-the-Influence Lawson-Fenning

Lawson Fenning is always on the top of my go-to list when I visit Los Angeles. It feels so warm and cozy, but not in an overstuffed, old school kind of way, more in an understated, L.A. organic, cool kinda way. Plus this furniture and house-ware line embodies all that I love about modern American-made […]

SOCIAL MEDIA FEEDING FRENZY

Dwell-in-Design

I am soop-air (super with a french accent) excited to be headed down to Los Angeles this weekend for Dwell on Design. It’ll be a big ol’ party for my eye balls, with a dash of hanging out with friends thrown in. I’ll be part student, investigative reporter, speed shopper, and lady who lunches all […]

LEAVING FOR LALA LAND

Girl-on-her-side

I’m leaving for LaLa land next week to check out Dwell on Design, snoop around for some new stuff, and spend time with my Hermosa Beach friends. The thing about traveling is that I ALWAYS want to buy a new outfit before I go, it’s a weird compulsion. So when thinking about how I’d like […]

MATERIAL GIRL / BRASS

Material Girl / Brass

Living in a material world, feeling like a material girl, with serious brass on the brain. You can use a bit, or you can use a bunch. Either way, get with the program: brass is where it’s at! xo, Jasmine     Interior image sources: (clockwise) kitchen, bathroom, fireplace, dresser, chairs  Product images sources: listed below

FLAT OUT AMAZING / MARA & MINE SHOES

Shoes Made in Los Angeles

I am totally on board with the new shoe line Mara & Mine. It reminds me that there is a tropical holiday/birthday celebration on the horizon with my (almost) 40 year old name written ALL OVER IT,  and new shoes are just what I need to get me there. Mara & Mine are made in […]

GASTROGASM / BURRATA

burrata-copy

Some moments stay with you forever – losing your virginity, or the life shattering realization that Milli Vanilli wasn’t really singing. The first time I tasted burrata, while living in Milan, was one such moment. Upon eating it, I broke out into a male rendition of the Meg Ryan orgasm scene from When Harry Met […]

ISN’T IT ICONIC / MID CENTURY MODERN

Architectural Digest, Mid Century Modern

It’s Mid Century Modernism Week in Palm Springs and I have to say I’m a little miffed that I’m not there. Clearly the prospect of sunshine, glorious architecture, and champagne cocktails at The Parker are much more inviting than February in Portlandia. However, rather than dwelling on my geographic inadequacies, I have decided to dig deep […]

STYLE GUIDE UPDATE / 1

JewelryNewbiesFeb15

I don’t know if you have had a chance to peruse the Made & State Style Guide or not, but I have to say it’s pretty great. In fact, you are probably going to die of lust. I also think it’s likely if you haven’t died, that you will at least feel a deep desire […]
