Collagen Protein – My New Best Friend

I've heard a lot of positive things about collagen lately. It seems like every celebrity has endorsed it and raves about all its anti-aging benefits. I spent a lot of time researching collagen proteins and came across Dr. Kellyann's Slim Collagen Shake. I tried it for 21 days and fell in love. Each morning I make a shake with her grass fed protein powder and feel amazing. I have been eating low carb, so I love that the powder only has 2 net carbs per serving.

All Saints – My Dream Jacket

This morning I went to SOCO Collection in Costa Mesa. It’s primarily a home decor shopping center but the center space has lots of cool shops, a Portola coffee (!), a farmer’s market, and some really cool restaurants. I had recently purchased a suede jacket from All Saints (majorly on sale!) and absolutely love it. The color is perfect and it reminds me of the white leather jacket with tassels that Lana Del Rey wore in the Ride music video. Continue reading “All Saints – My Dream Jacket”

Among the Wildflowers

Last weekend I went to the flower fields in Carlsbad. Talk about a great photo opportunity! The fields are beautiful and seem to go on forever.  If you live in Orange County and haven’t been before, grab your camera and go check it out. Tons of people were there taking photos so it’s definitely fun to do with your friends and family. Continue reading “Among the Wildflowers”

How to Style a Jean Jacket

To all my Free People lovers out there: the new Free People jean jacket is all time. I love the over sized fit and perfect light blue denim. Jean jackets are coming back in a big way, and there are tons of ways to wear them. Today I matched it with a good pair of Madewell high waisted black skinnies, a Madewell crop top, and Jeffrey Campbell booties. Continue reading “How to Style a Jean Jacket”

Capitola Jewels Travels: Washington D.C.

Washington D.C is an awesome city with great night life, shopping, and tons of free stuff to do.

I took a trip during President’s Day Weekend which left me with three full vacation days in a new city. I had been once before when I was in middle school, but had no idea what to expect as an adult. I loved D.C. and can’t imagine anyone not enjoying the city. Continue reading “Capitola Jewels Travels: Washington D.C.”

Surviving a Juice Cleanse – a Beginner’s Guide

Ah, the good ‘ol juice cleanse. Detoxing, losing water weight, clearing up your skin, why not do one, right? Aside from highly restricting your calorie intake and not eating for three days, juicing is awesome. I really mean it. I did the Nekter Juice Bar Advanced Three Day Cleanse and absolutely loved it! After day three I felt thinner, detoxed, five pounds lighter (actually 5.8 to be exact), and ready to keep eating healthy. Continue reading “Surviving a Juice Cleanse – a Beginner’s Guide”

The CAMP in Costa Mesa

I spent last weekend at the CAMP and had forgotten how much I love it there. It is full of great shopping, fabulous restaurants, and good nightlife. I went in the morning and grabbed a coffee and did a little shopping. I also love going for dinner and drinks at Mesa or grabbing a burger at Umami Burger. Continue reading “The CAMP in Costa Mesa”

Balboa Island Feels

Try going  to Balboa Island on a Saturday or Sunday morning and walk around. Grab a coffee, do some window shopping, and take in the sights. Balboa is a sweet little beach community that has the most welcoming and friendly vibes. If you know me, you understand that I’m really into vibes. Continue reading “Balboa Island Feels”

Newport Beach – Lido Marine Village

If you have not been to Lido Marine Village in Newport Beach – go check it out! I went a few weeks ago and had a really nice time exploring the shops and restaurants. Not many people have discovered it yet, so it wasn’t too crowed which is an added bonus. It’s the perfect location to go shopping with the girls and then have a nice glass of wine and unwind.
