Happy Wednesday loves!

Last night, I took a step away from the blogosphere to spend quality time with some of my dearest friends. I had dinner and wine with my best friend Auva and spent 2 hours group chatting with my 2 long distance best friends, Chid and Eva. It's so easy to get caught up in the millions of things we feel like we have to do everyday but at the end of the day, friends and family make life worth living.

So I've added to my to-do list to spend more time nurturing the relationships of people close to me. Whether that means cooking dinner for my family, more happy hours with friends or maybe some real life blog meet ups, I need to learn how to silence my phone, refrain from checking instagram or log off my computer more often to interact in real time. Yesterday was a wonderful example of that. Love you ladies!

Ever have those days when it feels good to just put down the laptop and spend time with the people you adore?

Bloggy Love

And since I don't want you to leave empty-handed, I figured I'd share some of my must-read blogs:

 I can't get ENOUGH of Lauren, she is so honest, sarcastic but remarkably sweet. I adore her.

In reading one entry, Mish had my heart. By far, the funniest girl in the blog world and my total blog crush.

If anyone can make you LOL with hashtags, it's Kristine. And she has the most adorable children!

So much of Simply Evani was inspired by Maggie. While I can only dream of being as talented and successful, she's so incredibly open with her life and it makes me want to stay awhile.

None of these blogs are sponsors, I just genuinely love reading them!

Which blogs are your must reads??

Happy Hump Day!

Happy Friday readers!

So I was having a mild panic attack yesterday about my lack of preparation with our coming vacation and the fact I didn't have every second planned out and everything ready. Yes, you can gasp in surprise, I AM an A-type personality. I tried with all my might to get a REAL entry done for today but I ended up feeling overwhelmed with preparations for Saturday morning. So here is proof of my insanity, this is everything I need to get done TODAY (did I also mention what a huge procrastinator I am?)

So I have these dreams of being BFF with Joy Cho of Oh Joy, Bri Emery of DesignLovefest and Bonnie Tsang of Bonnie Tsang Blog because they are blogging goddesses and they are ALWAYS instagramming amazing food from LA. I found most of the LA foodie destinations on our list via Joy in this blog entry: Top 20 bites of 2011 in LA.

We'll be gone until a week from today! Are there any other recommendations you have for LA? Any good craft/paper/vintage stores you recommend?

I take so many trips that I'm thinking of making a re-usable packing list, so maybe that'll show up on my blog in the near future!

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner

Also shout out to Katrine over at Make it & Fake it! I won a giveaway over at her amazing DIY site and I can't wait to receive my Swarovoksi elements style magazine! I'll be crafting it up once I get it, thats for sure.

Thanks Katrine!!

Here are some Weekend reading/DIYs:

Make a cropped knit via Harpers Bazaar and A Pair & A Spare.

Diggin the blog Penny Chic by Shauna, love the styling of this Convertible shirt.

Because you know I love anything in the teal color palette.

For an easy laugh.

And a parting print for the weekend. My life relates to this SO much lately.

Source unknown :( I found it on a tumblr but if anyone knows where this is from, let me know! I'd love to credit it.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone!
