horses, horses, horses, horses

I shot this while I was horsin' around (pun intended) at the Crazy Ranch this weekend, aka my Mom's house.  Starring Misty, the persnickety horse.  Enjoy!

Self Care Sunday

I'm feeling very good today, despite the fact it is a Sunday and I should be full of dread and worry about the upcoming week.  Why are you in a good mood you ask?  Well, I had a chance to stay at my mom's Crazy Ranch this weekend.  It is always a nice to getaway and being able to spend the time with my mom was extra needed.  In addition to my wonderful weekend I have some scheduled dinner dates with friends this week and I think that has really helped put me in  a positive mood.  I try to schedule activities in my week that I can look forward to otherwise I find that I am so much more likely to burn out.  Despite the wonderful mood I am still indulging in some self care tonight.  What's on the menu?  Wine, a good book, and a bubble bath. Awwwwwww

POPSUGAR Must Have March Box Review

Hooray, today's the day my POPSUGAR Must Have Box arrived! This is my first of their boxes and I am feeling very good about this subscription so far.  I have been doing lots of research on subscription boxes lately, and I have found this one to be highly recommended.  
It has a nice mix of beauty and lifestyle products with relative high value.  While this particular box doesn't blow me away with it's value I like all the products I received and will definitely use all of them.  
It is $39.95 monthly but with the coupon code MUSTHAVE5 you save $5 off your first box
Enclosed in the box was a little pamphlet describing each item.

Hooray for Hollywood

Something I have been up to in the time I have been away, has been acting in and acting as a production assistant, or as my boyfriend calls it, "playing on your iPad in the corner," for some of his short films.  In my unbiased opinion, my boyfriend is incredibly talented, as are our friends who participate.  This particular short is my favorite, and also my defining role.  So please enjoy the silliness that is Millie's Garage Bingo!

I see you're back again

Hey Friends! 

After a long hiatus with uncertain return, I have decided on a whim to revisit my old friend, Miss Della Street!!

I'd like to approach this return as a new beginning.  I see it as I am a little older, a little wiser, and as I am {eeeek} getting closer to thirty becoming a bit more introspective and more interested in my lifestyle and environment.  I'm thinking I would like the content to be more geared towards my current interests and we can all learn and grow together.

So cheers, pour a glass of Chardonnay and enjoy this Self Care Sunday with me!

{On the menu}
Hair Mask-Myriam K BB cream Hair Mask (from February's Oui Please box)
Face Mask-GlamGlow Super Mud
Ropiteau Chardonnay

We're going to rattle this ghost town

It has been so warm in LA lately that I've been turning my week-ends into little stay-cations.  There is nothing as fun as being a tourist in your own city, discovering new sights out of familiar places.  Give me a simple summer dress and a tank full of gas and exploring awaits.  This particular day was spent meandering about LACMA one of my favorite places in LA.
