A friend of mine recently told me about The Homegrown Collective, which is a subscription service that delivers a themed "green box" to your door every month. Each box is seasonal and promotes a self-sufficient and sustainable lifestyle. I do my best to support a more eco-conscious way of life {I am from Ojai after all} and I thought I would share it with you. Such a cool idea right? I recently received the aptly named "How Sweet It Is" box which was filled with local honey, bee pollen, rose hips, organic essential oils and all the tools and instructions to make your own lip balm, salves and elixirs. I think this subscription would make such a nice gift, whether it be for yourself or a friend. Check out their website for more information and a peak at past boxes.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I am finally feeling ready to get in the holiday spirit and maybe even decorate a little. I'm really loving this white and turquoise color scheme. Would you try it, or are you more of a traditional red and green kinda gal? 


One of my most cherished gifts over Christmas was this book given to me by my boyfriend. It is a book of drawings from one of my favorite films of last year, Beginners. There are so many things to love about this movie, like Christopher Plummer or getting to see the LA I know and love, but my favorite part had to be the drawings. The director, Mike Mills drew all of them himself (he happens to also be an artist and graphic designer) and they are interspersed through out the film. If you haven't seen it, you must rent it immediately. I am sure you will fall in love with it as much as I did.

Any fun plans this weekend? Tonight we are going to dinner and then to see the film Pina, which is a conceptual dance movie. It looks so incredibly beautiful, I can't wait. 
Happy Weekend! xo

1. Photo
2. Manila Gift Tags $10 for 50
3. Kraft Paper $8.21
4. Photo
5. Cruelty Free Guinea Feathers $3
6. Jute Twine $3.35

I saw these beautifully wrapped presents on oh, hello friend and was immediately inspired by their simplicity. I love the idea of using kraft paper and twine as wrapping because it is seasonless.  Attaching an old photo or a guinea feather makes is feel personal. For the holidays you could dress it up with a sparkly gift tag or a sprig of pine.


With Valentines Day a mere ten days away, what can I say, love is in the air.

Wow guys, it's December all of a sudden and holiday shopping is in full effect. I love buying gifts for people - Yes sometimes it can be stressful finding that perfect item, but there is nothing more satisfying. This year I tried to brave the crowded malls to find gifts, but I got overwhelmed and decided to do the rest of my shopping online. These days it is so easy. Most online retailers have free shipping and/or returns and you can do your research and check for the best price. I bought a little something on Cyber Monday and it arrived yesterday morning - FAST! If you missed my Holiday Gift Guide {part I}, make sure to check it out here.
