Chi Town

This weekend I'm heading off to Chicago for a nice little vacation. It will be my first time there, so I'm definitely excited. I've been told the food is fabulous in the city, so I've put together some places I'd like to try...

I love...

Meet my new T.V. obsession: Mad Men. It's by far one of the best series on television right now. The show is already on Season 5, but hey, better late than never. I love the complexity of the characters and the storyline - not to mention the fabulous clothes and decor. This show makes me want to live in Manhattan in the 60's...minus the chain smoking part.

I just finished Season 2, and can't wait to get my hands on the next one. The only downside about Mad Men? It's not coming back until 2012! Boo.

BUT...Banana Republic is coming out with a Mad Men inspired line in a few weeks, which I'm so excited about. Today, you can purchase these clothes on Gilt.com before they hit the shelves. Here's a preview:

Deep Fried Heaven

This weekend was all about the food. Some friends and I headed over to my parent's house in Orange County, and my dad cooked us delicious pulled pork and mac n' cheese with breadcrumbs. I can't wait to eat the leftovers sitting in my fridge!

Today, I went to the OC Fair, where you can basically get anything deep fried. We chose the deep fried Klondike Bar, which had a nice crispy outside and a soft, creamy center.

What's your favorite type of deep fried treat?

kate spade love

Lately, I can't get enough of kate spade. Her designs are the perfect balance of vintage playfulness and modern day wearability. I can picture Audrey Hepburn a la Breakfast at Tiffany's frolicking around Manhattan in these gorgeous get-ups and handbags.

Here are some of my favorites:

Blog Beginnings

Say hello to my brand new blog. I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but finally took the time to make one. I'm a young twenty-something girl in L.A. who feels inspired by the people and places around her. I'll be writing about places I visit, recipes I taste test, and essentially anything that captures my eye (fashion, design, etc.). Stick around and see this digital adventure unfold...
