+ As I shared previously on Instagram, I took a weekend break in the woods that was really well-needed. The ladies from my church all got together for a retreat in Twin Peaks that provided perfect weather and great time for community.

+ Wellen Women’s is coming and heading up a Kickstarter! Pretty sweet perks if you contribute (read: surfboard!).

+ The NFL has decided to take a break on roman numerals for Super Bowl L 50.

+ GO KINGS GO!

+ Cheers to weekends now spent in the sun. As the weather gets warmer, it’s a bit more difficult to want to do anything else besides relaxing outside.

Lots of exciting sports happenings this month: World Cup (!), Belmont Stakes, NHL Finals (GKG!), NBA Finals (I’m not even watching), US Open of Golf, and the X Games. I’m going to make an attempt to cover as much as I can, but we’ll see how that goes. Happy June!

+ I couldn’t stop laughing at this epic paper plane toss at a soccer match.

+ Tomas Pages goes for the motocross bike flip…and kind of does it?

+ For me, family gatherings aren’t complete without games. Spring afternoons are perfect for outdoor bocce rounds.

Other notes//

+ Kings made it to the West Finals! …but are already down 1-0. #GKG

+ My brother introduced me to melodica covers on YouTube, and I am obsessed, like this Jurassic Park one. Speaking of Jurassic Park, this guy brilliantly turned his SUV into a JP car. Rad.

Happy Monday!

Weekend happenings// MSB+ One of my few (and not so grand) items on my exploring list is to visit all 21 of the California missions. My friend Jenna mentioned that her Grandma and I share the same ambition, so clearly I’m in good company. I checked off Ventura, which is just 45 minutes north of my home.

+ A Sunday morning spend watching the surf and finally diving into Grace

Decorating darling succulents for a friend’s bridal shower dinner.

Other notes//

+ Which is your favorite? The city of Los Angeles and Mayor Garcetti are having a vote on new eco-totes to be distributed to the city.

+ Created 800 years ago, these are the OG Pantones.

+ I’m mildly obsessed with the story of Vivian Maier. Can’t wait to check this out.

+ Prada’s new microsite will make your head spin, but it’s a nice trip down memory lane.

+ Some darn good advice to start each day: Daily Advice.

Happy Monday! Cheers!

Sometimes you get so busy that posts just aren’t going to make it as a priority, and, on the flip side, sometimes you finally find some free time and decide that it’s best to take advantage of that and just relax. As to not inundate with excessive catching up, here’s a glimpse of where I’ve been since I left off on my last Weekend Off Duty:

wine

+ The 2nd Annual Wine Road barrel tasting weekend with some of my favorites. #buckleup2014 [See last year’s trip here.]ntc

+ The NTC Tour stop in Santa Monica was tons of fun! We definitely got hooked up between free Fuelbands, free Studio Wrap shoes and lots of great workout classes with master teachers. So, so fun and highly recommended!Processed with VSCOcam with k2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

+ Best night ever: Kings of Leon at the Fabulous Forum with my brother. We won pit passes, so it doesn’t get much better than that. Unreal.

wod

+ Hiking Solstice Canyon on a perfect morning.

+ First Friday and dinos (!) at the Natural History Museum.

Other notes//

+ Lots of new Forever 21 Active for Spring popping up! We have some exciting stuff coming soon!

+ For the record: my bracket ended up being laughable. And I really want UConn to win tonight.

Cheers to a new week!

+ 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.
