Monday Musings September | 25

Today marks the first day that I have turned the heat on this year and I am over the moon about the change of seasons.  Okay, Los Angeles doesn't have proper seasons but more than anything, I am excited to say farewell to the 100 degree heat and any potential opportunities to wear shorts.  I stocked up on flawed Jessie Kamm pants over the weekend and am so ready for the fall.  We are also getting ready to head to the desert for a few days and Friday cannot come quick enough.  Here are a few links to keep you inspired this week.

Monday Musings | sept 18

Wallace and I went on a road trip this weekend to visit my mother.  We had a really great time visiting the local zoo, riding small carnival rides and eating way too much junk food.  Have any of you visited the Fresno Zoo, I was surprised to find that it blows Los Angeles out of the water.  They had so many different exhibits and I was especially impressed with Sea Lion Cove.  This is also the best time to visit the central valley because it's not too warm during the day and the nights are always perfect.  I don't visit home as often as I should but there's something so special about hanging out in my old room.  Even though my childhood house looks very different than when I lived there as a while, there really is no place like home.  Here are my favorite links for the week.

My new favorite earrings 

Next year might be a good time to visit Beijing

This weather makes me want to bake and this simple cake looks promising 

 

 

I hope you all have a great week!
