Considering how aesthetically underwhelming the yoga mat market is, I’m surprised brands like La Vie Boheme Yoga haven’t popped up sooner or more frequently! I’ve seen plenty of DIY projects about how to paint your yoga mat with acrylic, but the end result is usually less than satisfying. It’s about time someone’s started to print their own collection of inspiring designs!

Check out LVBY’s assortment of three unique designs in various color ways here to see more.

+ Glittering and gluing my CdG Play valentines. Hope Rei doesn’t mind.


+ Valentine’s Day is special with my family as it’s also my mom’s birthday. I took the day off work to celebrate her and planned a day that included a fresh-baked scone and mimosa breakfast, Drybar appoinments, and a stop at Lemonade.

+ Family dinner at Pizzeria Mozza.

Other notes//

+ Killspencer finally launched some women’s goods.

+ If you purchase Pantones as frequently as I do, you’re definitely not stoked on the price hike. Hurry up and submit your order to Hyatt’s while they’re still offering the old prices for a short time.

+ I am still super bummed out about Shaun White.

Urban Outfitter‘s is officially jumping into the active sector, which seemed a long time coming as they’ve evolved into a full lifestyle company. Meet Without Walls, a mix of UO product and curated outside brands to cater to the outdoor-urban customer who has a serious case of wanderlust.

Here’s what UO says in their own words:

“Without Walls is performance clothing and gear for fitness, surf, trail, and cycle, so you can keep moving without looking like everyone else. We don’t chase adventures, we create them. We are @gowithoutwalls #WithoutWalls. #GetMovingHaveFun #MoreToExplore”

I’m super curious to see how fitness customers react to the range and turning to UO for athletic options. Looking forward to checking it out in person next week.

+ Celebrating the marriage of one of my oldest friends. It took place in the wine cellars of JUSTIN Winery, which was a neat set-up. Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

+ Wrapping the weekend up with a family birthday dinner. Nothing Bundt Cakes always hits the spot.

Other notes//

+ This Lana Del Rey cover for Maleficent is just so good.

+ Hope everyone’s enjoying the Olympics! Men’s Halfpipe is happening live this morning, so, by the time most have read this, I’ll be on cloud nine because Shaun White 3-peated or super bummed out.

Happy Olympics viewing and Valentine’s Day this week!
