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:


+ 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.


+ 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!

Weekend happenings//


+ Sometimes your weekend posts get put up on Thursday after the whole week goes by. Whoops. Things are bizzy around here, but here’s a snippet of my weekend in Sonoma to escape the usual pace of things. Nothing does a body good quite like quality time shared with loved ones.


+ Kicking off Barrel Tasting at Hook and Ladder winery. Non-wine drinkers like me get mugs.

+ The whole gang.

+ Barrels everywhere.

+ Friends since elementary school: Emily, myself, and Paula.

+ Enjoying Windsor Oaks Winery, our final stop. Such a beautiful setting.

+ Celebrating the birthday girl’s 25th!

+ Strolling around Petaluma after brunch. Petaluma has some seriously cool buildings.

+ Visiting the gorgeous Green Music Center and Weill Hall. Looking forward to taking in a show there one day.

Other notes//

+ I cannot tolerate the Harlem Shake videos at all, but JT gets a pass as always.

+ Some designer humor: I need both of these guys.

+ Dunk of the week: DeAndre Jordan kills it.

+ Tyler Wright nabbed the Roxy Pro title this weekend, while Kelly cleaned up at the Quik Pro.
