Trophy Cupcakes in LA

I look forward to the parties that Urbanic throws every couple of months. Last night’s party featured a delicious Seattle-based company, Trophy Cupcakes,¬†and celebrated release of their new book, Cupcakes & Parties. We sipped champagne, ate some adorable mini cupcakes and created an adorable badge. Take a look at some of the photos from last night.

Succulents: Part 1

Alternative Apparel + succulents
I discovered succulents when I moved to LA and fell in love. Not only are they easy to take care of [I have a hard time keeping any other type of plant alive], they are also so pretty and interesting to look at. Succulents seem to be a staple in a majority of LA gardens, potted plants, or interior decorations. I headed over to Alternative Apparel in Venice, and met up with Allyson, their Social Media Manager. She gave me a tour of the shop, and all of the succulent arrangements throughout the store + store front. They have some pretty cool set ups, so if you are ever on Abbot Kinney, be sure and stop by to check it out! [They also have the most comfy clothes!]

What makes so many of these succulent arrangements unique is the interesting containers they are kept in. I know next time I go to the Pasadena Flea Market, I’ll for sure be looking for things like this!

So many different variations, each are so interesting!

Blogger Meet-Up

Last week, I had the privilege to get coffee with Kristi, the brains behind Kristixoxo. What a sweetheart! She has a great sense of style (and manicures), and it was so great to finally meet and talk about all things blogging, Los Angeles and our interests. Turns out, we like many of the same things! We decided to meet up at Intelligentsia in Venice, as it is one of my favorite spots, and Kristi had never been.

Our coffee meet-up was definitely a great way to start summer. Special thanks to Kristi’s boyfriend for some of the photos he took!

Happy Monday!
