The Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows has one of the best locations for vacationing in Santa Monica.  You are in walking distance to everything you need to do here.  We did not use the car once. They also provide complimentary bikes for their hotel guests.  I highly recommend this hotel, its beautiful and the service is unsurpassable.  The FIG Restaurant is also amazing!

Just Two Elephants

Lilly Pulitzer

Recently I have been shopping on One Kings Lane and found a white ceramic elephant that I thought would go perfect in my home.  They have so many unique home items it's hard not to find the perfect accessory for you interior design projects.


These are pretty blue and white.

Perfect for books or a plant.

The perfect all white ceramic elephant. This one is similar to the one I recently found in my travels.

Blue & White

Below are the ones I found on consignment.  What a great find!

All white consignment find!

I fell in love with this one elephant! I'm going to put this one in my entryway.  I am going to use the larger one for books by my chaise lounge.  Love them.
Two all white elephants.

Gucci Love

Gucci Classic Black OnePiece Suit for Vacation!

I have a ton of swimsuits but I wanted something special for my vacation.  I'm loving this classic black one-piece by Gucci.  In my opinion nothing is as classic and sexy as a black one piece suit.  This is gorgeous!  I love the sheer jacket too.  It's perfection, but so is the model!

Gucci Love.
Way back in October I happened to be at the Apple Store in Greenwich picking up a new IPad. I spotted a women wearing a Gucci cross-body purse and fell in love with it! I thought to myself that would be the perfect purse for my trip to California. 

 When I got home I found it online. I discovered it was backordered until March 2014.  I clicked away at other styles and designs. I came across this one and fell in love!  The perfect shape, size and I loved the green and red strap!  Classic Gucci.

The most perfect bag for traveling!  Cross-body/Messenger.

I found this one at Neiman Marcus, clicked the link and sent it to my husbands email address.  I was trying to make Christmas shopping for me easy on him!  

He ordered it from Gucci online and it took a few months to get here.  Just in time for my trip, thank god.
