February's Coming

Although I appreciate the fresh "do-over" feeling that comes with a new year and the crisp mornings in January, I absolutely cannot wait until February. My birthday month is always a little bittersweet (thank you, Valentine's day), but the weather is always wonderful here in SoCal and the stores are filled with bright pinks and reds and the greatest assortment of dark chocolate candies. 
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm currently attempting to merge both my tumblr and blogger accounts so that I can post more inspiring images on my blog (and therefore post more often). I fell in love with the mix of brights and neutrals in these photos; definitely my new favorite trend. And that arm candy? Count me in. I'm definitely in the market for some new bangles and bracelets.

Good Eats

Alright, so you know that saying, "don't knock it till you've tried it?" That would be an excellent quote to throw in right about now. 
Many of my friends have scoffed at the idea of eggs on pizza, throwing my unconventional favorite off the table without even giving it a chance. But let me tell you, eggs on pizza just may be the greatest invention since pizza itself. Plus, this recipe is way healthier than your standard pepperoni pie. It's a whole wheat crust topped with fresh spinach, prosciutto, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and of course, four large eggs.
It's an awesome lunch special (for when I get bored of my standard pastrami sandwiches) that may look a little strange, but packs a punch of flavor.

Recipe here.

One of my New Year's resolutions was to start blogging more often, so I called up Emily, my best friend and next door neighbor since forever, and we did a little modeling in her back yard. It was definitely amateur work, but soooo much fun. I was especially excited to debut my chartreuse sweater from Urban Outfitters (where else?) and some vintage Ray-Bans that Emily found. (Yes, she found a pair of real Ray-Ban Wayfarers lying around. The lucky duck.)
For this little photo shoot, Emily let me style her and I got a bit carried away with the camera, considering she's so photogenic. A couple of these shots definitely scream 'profile pic.'
Anyway, I have TONS of new clothes (yay Christmas gift cards and employee discounts!) so I'll hopefully have some more pictures up soon. 

{Yup, that's my bff.}
