Rebecca Minkoff-Halls KC Event

Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Hi Readers!

Below is the official event that I went to at Halls last week. I had such a fun time with my husband and look forward to more fashionable events in Kansas City. I hope you enjoy the photos from that night. I wore a BCBG pink silk dress, shoes were from Windor, and my purse is a vintage Dooney and Bourke leather bag.

Clinton Lake-Beach Day

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Hello readers,

The other weekend we went to Clinton Lake with a few friends. It was a spontaneous moment where we wanted to enjoy the summer and the beach for a bit longer. Rob and I were already missing LA so if we could go to a fake beach to pretend we were still in LA why not? Note to readers: Clinton Lake did have that squishy lake feeling so it WAS NOT A BEACH. (I think I felt a fish nibble my toe too so THAT was fun)

We went shopping in Lawrence at The Hyvee and purchased way too much food for just five people. We have gotten a littler wiser lately, instead of eating it all for lunch, we decided to grill out for dinner too. We ate, swam, played freakin' hot sand volleyball, had a few beers, had a few more beers, drank water, rinsed off, and got home before sundown. It was a really nice trip and I'm glad we have spontaneous friends. 

PS-More photos from visiting a Daft Punk Tribute Band and getting to meet Rebecca Minkoff tonight at KC Halls. Lots of fun stuff coming your way readers!

LA 2013-Labor Day Vacation

Wednesday, September 25, 2013


I have been so bad about keeping updates but the amazing news is I finally received my new camera! It didn’t come in time for my LA Labor Day Vacation but I am just glad it finally arrived. I took my husband to LA for the first time to visit my family and one of my best friends Cassandra. I miss her a lot living so far away but she is pursing her dream of acting so I am nothing but proud.

I took a lot more photos with my iPhone but did manage to pull a few camera photos from our time in Santa Monica. I will post more later but wanted to just upload a few photos to enjoy. I have a lot more fashionable events coming up for the adverting world here in Kansas City so stay tuned!

  • There are such things as sand fleas and boy did they bite me. I was supposed to be all “sexy sexy” and my arms looked like I was a bad drug addict. (Spray on bug spray on beach)
  • Not nearly enough people take full advantage of the ocean. They live RIGHT BY IT!
  • LAX is a lot further away from Van Nuys than I remember.
  • ALWAYS plan ahead b/c traffic sucks. Like if possible leave 3 hours early. We were stuck in traffic driving to San Diego for 2 extra hours :(
  • ALWAYS pack snacks in the car if a wife becomes cranky and wants to yell at strangers stuck in traffic. (OR HUSBAND….)
  • The Hollywood Bowl has to be one of the coolest things I have ever been able to see; we watched The Philharmonic play along with famous Oscar songs/movies.
  • Don’t ever underestimate the love of family or friends. Truly so blessed and I’m reminded every time I get to visit them.
  • Husbands make sexy taxi drivers/chauffeurs when running around Los Angeles.


LA Vaca

Hello my lovelies!

I just got back from vacation in LA and hit work hard today. I will be posting a pretty spread of pictures from my trip tomorrow. Stay tuned. My cat Hawkeye helped me pack of course.
