Have you Seen these Houses?

While my mom and I were tooling around in San Diego, we stumbled across these curious little houses!


Shaped like little ships, they are perched on a hill a few streets back from the beach. I wonder what it's like to live in a ship?


I found an article about the SS Moonlight and it rents for $1950/month! But it's in a lovely part of Encintas, and Moonlight Beach is very close!

Best $20 Old Navy Buy...

These flats are simple, cute, comfy and affordable.  Old Navy stuff is so hit or miss and these are definitely a hit.

I tend to be pretty hard on flats, I wear them out.  So to find a cheap, cute solution at Old Navy chuffs me greatly!  Can't wait for the leopard pair to arrive. And to think I considered, ever so briefly, some Tory Burch ones. My senses abandoned me momentarily.

Quick Trip to California

Last week I was able to extend a work trip to California and spend a few days with family. My mom, grandma and I went out to Paradise Cove in Malibu for a little lunch and beach time.


It was my first time ever to Paradise Cove, despite making lots of summertime trips to the beaches in SoCal in my childhood.  It's $25 to park (yikes) but totally worth it if you make a day of it.


It was so beautiful that day.  It really made me curse leaving California for land-locked Raleigh, but what can you do?
