+ 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.

+ 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.

+ 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!

+ Saturday felt like an all day event as family and friends came together to celebrate my cousins’ birthdays. Perfect weather, a bounce house, and a surprise guest visit by fireman made for a busy and wonderful afternoon.

+ I’m so excited to test run the new Bumble and Bumble Surf Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve been a devoted Surf Spray user for years, so I have big hopes for these products.

+ Wish I could’ve made a stop this year, but Supercross wrapped up this weekend. Congrats to Villopoto on another title!

+ I don’t know what took so long for Swiss-Miss to get in my life, but I’m so glad to have come across it.

+ A surprise birthday celebration with family. Lots of cake, Cars, and candy. Here’s a Vine glimpse of the action.

+ Finally caught Jurassic Park 3D, one of my favorite movies, with my brother. [See here.] The glasses they hand out are kinda fun.

Other notes//

+ THIS. I was SO upset Friday evening. I’ve no words other than “See you in October, Kobe.”

+ Garance recently swung by Free People’s HQ, and the place is as beautiful as I’ve always heard. Take a peek here.

+ Meet Frank Catalfumo, a cobbler who’s still in business at the sturdy age of 90.

+ Congratulation to Adam Scott on his Masters win! I love this image.

+ Due to the weight of my work schedule, I’ve fallen behind in a few places, this site included. I’ve started countless drafts for posts, but most are left unfinished and ultimately deleted because they were time sensitive. I’m looking forward to adjusting and fine tuning my attention to the extra things outside of work, including a new segment for SOUTHBOUNDSUAREZ. Just gotta continue to push myself to prioritize.

+ And finally, but most importantly, please continue to pray for those affected by yesterday’s events in Boston. Utterly heartbreaking.

+ Another weekend full of family time: game night and more time with the little ones.

+ Iced over roofs, icy cars, & frozen lawns: lots of cold nights and mornings lately.

Weekend happenings//


The weekend was full of family events: celebrating the life of a wonderful grandfather, catching up with out-of-town relatives, playing with the kiddie cousins, and a birthday celebration thrown in.

How’d everyone’s Super Bowl go? The game definitely wasn’t a let down, which is easy when you don’t prefer either team. For the extra stuff, I found the commercials as a whole just good, not great, and the halftime merely okay. Perhaps my expectations were too high…?

Other notes//

+ Finally saw Django Unchained over the weekend. Two things I love about it: 1. it was partly filmed in my hometown of West Hills, & 2. the soundtrack is absolutely killer.

+ Excited for these two upcoming movies: Mood Indigo & Inside Llewyn Davis.

Weekend happenings//GrandmaGrandpa+ Over the weekend I had to say goodbye to one of my, if not main, inspirations: my grandfather. This week will be spent celebrating the life of the greatest example of what it means to live by faith. My grandpa was a man of unparalleled character, tireless work ethic, and was persistent to do the right thing no matter how unpopular. Being named Perfecto is a lot of pressure, but Grandpa certainly exceeded it.

+ Join Vine yet? Get the app and follow me at @stephaniesuarez. Still looking for inspiration for my first video-so much pressure!

+ Catch SNL this week? Two clips I enjoyed: 1. Kenan as Ray Lewis.  2. YOLO.

+ Winter X flew by this weekend (I’m still catching up a little) , but how about my guy Shaun White?!
