Oh, Ralph...

Posted on: Wednesday, September 18, 2013

The issue of Architectural Digest this month stopped me in my tracks, when I realized Ralph's & my home had some things in common! They had a whole spread on Ralph Lauren’s living spaces, and as I looked through the pages, it has become pretty apparent that his way of life is partly my own dream life!

"It’s all an extension of something I wanted in my life - or my dream life
- Ralph Lauren.

Agreed Ralph! Why not live like our dream life?!

I love this photo of his desk with all of his toys, tools and trinkets all perfectly placed--I wonder if any of these were his as a child? Does he fiddle with them while he works?? I, for one, definitely work more productively when all is in a controlled chaos:
You never know what you'll want to read when, so it’s good to keep the coffee table well stocked with stacks of inspiration available (Look Ralph! We both love white bouquets!):
As you can see, we are both equestrian lovers!
These are just a few aspects of my dream life...

Thrifting (and eating) and fun with Ruby

Posted on: Wednesday, September 11, 2013

LA is the destination and a bundle of clothes is the objective. 

We use Google, Yelp and blogs to find shops to try, some work out great and others, not so much. Thrifting can be hit and miss--do your research, be willing to change plans, play good music, eat well, and have fun!

First stop is fuel! Backyard Bowls in Goleta is pure yumminess. While we were eating Ruby got on craigslist to find us a sale in the area, she found one that she thought would be perfect.

The amazing sale that she found in Montecito consisted of three gals each cleaning out their olds and it was sooo good. I was so excited to see such wonderful things at a yard sale that Ruby had to keep telling me to focus! We bought a handful of clothes and art/home decor, but left behind lots, prices were a bit high for resale.

Before leaving SLO we were on the Daily Candy site-it is a food/entertainment/fashion/home site for LA. We had spied an article on 'best sandwiches in LA' and we decided on Simplethings sandwich and pie shop. The turkey sandwich with jalepeno stuffing was amazing!! Ruby got a whoopie pie and I enjoyed a mini choc satin pie.

The next few stops consisted of resale and thrift stores. A new one we found this trip was the National Council of Jewish Women thrift shop: they have a few locations and it was well stocked with current merchandise. 

Our last stop was food on the way home, we both agreed that the Whole Foods in Oxnard would be a good stop, since we couldn't agree on any kind of road food. This was a brand spankin' new store and to our suprise, it had an airstream inside, made into a bar! We felt right at home here.

Ok, it may seem like we did more eating than shopping, we did shop and drop! I think we must have had our hands full at these points and didnt take photos,
