She wore an Itsy, Bitsy, Teeny, Weeny, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

1. That she found at Tj.Maxx for $3.99 without a top.....

Finding bikini bottoms is something like finding a four leaf clover. It's is muy dificil. So when I tried these on, and they worked - I obviously scooped them up. But now, I have to find a top that will match - but either way, top or no top, it's a triumphant victory that I scored these flattering babies. And for under five buckaroo's no less.

Pretty sure that the Maxx in LA is like no other maxx in the world. They sell euurrrything....but still kinda expensive. Their Alice & Olivia section starts at like $240. No thank you. However, if you look on the floor....you may find some winners. 

3. My Traders Jones find of the week are these bad boys. Damn are they amazing.

4. Joel and I are officially "those people". We are straight up obsessed with our dog, and this picture totally sums it up.

5. When I came home from Chicago I was super, super sick and Joel was sweet enough to have my favorite flower dressing up our dining room table. He's a good boy.

6. The hardest part of the day for me and food consumption is between 4-8pm. It's my "the day is over, go ahead and treat yourself" time but I've been finding that this sweet snack really curbs my sweet tooth before dinner.
And then see #3 for what curbs it after dinner. 

7. One of my favorite places in Los Angeles happens to be in Malibu - Paradise Cove, to be exact. It's always a must-see when I have people come to visit me because it's just the coolest idea ever. Some genius bought a huge plot of land in malibu, opened up a restaurant, and built a bunch of beds and cabanas for you to rent, and decided to let you bring coolers full of your own food and booze as well. I literally could camp there for the entire day and be happy as a clam....and apparently so can these girls.

8. And last but not least, a good reminder...something that really reminds me of my Grandma - who lives this way, and always has - the way we all should, really.

See you on Friday ladies! 


  1. One of my favorite bathing suits is from TJ Maxx! Loving going to the Maxx and finding hidden gems. Also- great idea for a healthy snack, before dinner is always my grazing time too!

  2. It's definitely ok to be one of those people who are obsessed with their dog....coming from one of those people herself. ;)

  3. Thanks for sharing TJ frozen bananas slices. Must try!!


  4. How have I lived in LA my entire life and never been to Paradise Cove? I had NO IDEA you could bring your own snacks/ booze. That is amazing. I am making this happen asap.

  5. Joel's a keeper. Those yellow swimsuit bottoms are adorable, I'd call finding something that is: cute, beyond affordable and fits a win.
