Insta-Sam: Week of 5/6

Here are a few snaps from my LA adventures. I began the week off right with a classy brunch at my new favorite LA restaurant/patisserie, Bottega Louie. A pleasant weekend spent at home baking my own sweet treats was the perfect post-midterm celebration.

American Glamour

I've recently rediscovered my passion for interior design (thank you, HGTV), and have been scouring the internet looking for the best design blogs. Rather than surfing fashion blogs per usual, I've enjoyed gazing at beautifully decorated homes and apartments, and now I'm itching to move into my own apartment so I can let my creative juices flow freely. 
Alas, it seems that I will be trapped living the dorm life for the next year, so I won't get the chance to decorate quite yet. 

These rooms in particular are some of my favorites by designer Michelle Workman, who describes the style of this SoCal home as "American Glamour."
How lovely.
