Here are some shots of me and some fine lil friends at Planet Blue showing off our stacks!! Not to mention our amazing LoveChild Druzy Love rings showcased and stacked in Planet Blue's most recent Lookbook at the Ace Hotel!!! Enjoy......

"fall" in love...blah blah blah


we get it. floral and brights in the spring. darks in the fall. everyone right now is a buzz about fall trends...deep jewel tones.. plaids... blazers...shocking! well ya know what i say?? fall trends fall shmends! if i wanna wear black in the spring - guess what... im gonna! and if i wanna wear a floral in the fall... ya that's right! (and not because in california its hard to pretend like its the dead of winter when its 70 degrees
outside but because i live on the edge like that..) so just remember this coming season to "fall in love" with yourself. be true to who you are, because there is nothing more fashionable.

ps...im so excited for fall, i cant wait to wear all these chunky knits and other trends everyone is talking about!

whats for dinner???

chicken pot pie!

i love eating... i don't mind cooking... i hate deciding what to make, and when i say hate i mean hate. so any one dish meal, with ingredients i usually have in the pantry, that takes barely any prep time and less than 30 minute cook time is ideal... to say the least! chicken pot pie is a staple in our house (until about three months ago when apparently i cooked it so much we turned it to chickens- its just so easy...) but its been long enough and i was able to put it back in the rotation tonight. it reminded me just how good and simple it is. perfect for any mom on the go- or anyone not wanting to make a decision...

ingredients:
-1 rotisserie chicken (or 4 chicken breast cooked) shredded
-half stick butter
-1 cup milk
-1 and 1/2 cup chicken broth
-1/3 cup flour
-salt and pepper to taste
-1 can peas
-1 can green beans
-1 cup cooked carrots sliced
-any other veggies you like ....
-2 pie crusts

directions:
-preheat oven according to directions on pie crust package
-in a 2 quart sauce pan melt butter, once melted add flour {making a "blond" roux}
-add in milk, broth, salt and pepper {allow to cook- stirring frequently- until thick}
-add in veggies and chicken {take off heat}
-spoon mixture into crust lined pie dish, cover with remaining pie crust
-bake according to package {usually around 400 for about 20-30 minutes}
-let stand 5 minutes before serving... this with save many taste buds from burning off.. we learn this the hard way... every time...
* its even better the next day! so don't be afraid to make this the day before. follow all directions, but don't bake until ready to serve.

{...usually i eat a couple spoonfulls here... quality check}
