BHLDN Invites

boundless_blossoms-signature_white_save_the_date_cards-bhldn-boysenberry-purpleWith my wedding coming up in a few months, I’ve spent a lot of time recently looking at invitations and stationery.  From old school letterpress shops to pretty online invites, there’s so much to choose from. While perusing Wedding Paper Divas recently (looking for rehearsal dinner invites!) I came across a collaboration between them and BHLDN (pronounced ‘beholden’), and the result is precisely what you’d expect from Anthropologie’s answer to a wedding store. Dreamy graphics and vibrant florals abound; in true Anthro style, the whole stationery collection is stunning. Everything looks a lot more custom and infinitely more expensive than it is, and there’s something to suit every style.

Even if I don’t use any of these for my wedding events I think I may end up ordering a few of these thank you notes just to have for future use – because one can never have too many beautiful cards, am I right? Check out the full BHLDN collection, here.

Gifts That Give Back

I know everyone’s been overwhelmed with emails/tweets/blog posts about gift guides and sales and holiday shopping, but this one is a bit different. I swear! Each and every one of these fun, gift-appropriate items gives back in some way; whether it’s by assisting in disaster relief efforts, supporting disease research of providing fair and equal employment. The blown glass carafe would make a great hostess gift, your little nephew is sure to love the (lead, plastic and toxin free!) toy car, and there’s even the requisite tie for dad. And, since it’s for a good cause, you may as well pick up a little something for yourself – maybe the beaded bracelet or the chic hammered tin candle? Because isn’t it best to give and receive?

LA workouts with Lorna Jane

My workout routine varies from week to week; I usually do one or two (usually one) workout classes, either Burn 60 or Soul Cycle, a jog around my neighborhood, and a hike on the weekend if I can fit it in. One of the things that I love most about LA is that there are so many great places to workout outdoors – there are tons of hiking trails (we took these photos at Temescal Canyon, but I also love Will Rogers and Runyon Canyon) and of course the beachfront path in Santa Monica. But let’s face it, sometimes it’s really hard to get motivated to workout, no matter how scenic your options are. One thing that always usually helps to get me excited to break a sweat is cute workout clothes – maybe that’s a bit superficial, but I swear it works! My current favorites are by Australian brand Lorna Jane – their items are not only cute, but very high quality, and almost all of them feature some sort of functional design aspect like hidden pockets or venting to keep cool. I’m obsessed with these tights (which I may or may not have worn out on Saturday night with boots and a sweater), and all of their tanks. What is your workout routine like? I’d love to hear!
