With the recent heat wave in California, it has officially felt like Summer in these parts. After returning from our trip back east I found myself nesting for the season. I spent a few days organizing, cleaning and getting our home ready for a sun filled season and discovered a few things in the process that have made me feel re-energized to entertain, cook and take on the days. It’s amazing how a few adjustments around your home can make a world of a difference in your everyday routine.Click to read more >


My Hamptons dream vacation became a reality when we checked into our Kid & Coe house in East Hampton. I spent the first half hour running around like a kid on Christmas checking out the amazing pool, light filled rooms and expansive game room in the basement complete with a basketball court—yep, you heard me right, game of horse? I felt like I was stepping straight into a Nancy Meyers film, which was just how I envisioned our East Coast escape playing out.Click to read more >

CIHT_STYLE_FEATURE_KENDALL_CONRAD_082When I came up with the idea for the Style Profile series, Kendall Conrad was the first person I knew I had to share with all of you. The first time I met her I was in my early 20’s and interviewing her for a publication, which was my first job. As a young professional I was completely captivated and inspired by Kendall’s creative world from the way she dressed and styled her home to the cookbook she wrote and a handbag line that was just getting started, all the while raising two beautiful daughters. Fast forward ten years and she has since developed her brand to include jewelry, accessories, opened three storefronts in Venice, Brentwood and Montecito and was recently picked up by Club Monaco. Every time I get the chance to visit with Kendall I’m left with new wisdom, whether its a fun fact about Picasso, a beauty trick she learned from a makeup artist or advice on running a business, being a mother and doing it all. Here is a glimpse into her everyday favorites. Click to read more >
