{Photos} California Day 2: Half Moon Bay

After our day in San Francisco, we headed down the coast to Half Moon Bay. It was quite busy (being Labor Day weekend after all), but we were determined to look at our beaches. We looked at about 5 beaches and loved the ones further down the coast but all in all, after the entire trip we decided that Half Moon Bay was just not right for the wedding. We still love the area though!

Must-Do’s in Half Moon Bay

  • Enjoy a drink and dinner at Pasta Moon
  • Grab a coffee at Half Moon Bay Coffee
  • Walk down Main St
  • If you are into golf, check out the many options for golfing
  • Take a book and blanket and relax on Pomponio State Beach
  • Get a massage at the Ritz-Carlton

Music Monday: FALL in Love Playlist

Who doesn’t love new music? I love it. Today I mixed both new and old songs to bring together a fun fall playlist. I jammed to it while I cleaned this weekend! So I would say it’s pretty awesome.

My Fall To-Do List {September Update}

I am loving fall. This weekend we cleaned, watched my step-sister kick butt at hockey and have dinner with my dad, and went to some open houses in Roseville…all-in-all very successful!

Here is an update on my fall to-do list with some fun photos!


We went apple picking at Afton Apple which was quite busy the day we went so we didn’t spend too much time lollygagging…we grabbed our apples and then went to my mom’s and made apple crisp. It was delicious.







Brat loved the Apple Crisp! 

Breon and I stopped at a few Parade of Homes models and thought they were great (or at least I did)…he, being more of a realist, didn’t really think we should look at houses we can’t afford…touche. So we started looking at houses that we could afford last weekend and continued. It’s kinda fun looking at them and seeing what we can afford!



During our open houses today we looked at a handful of house, non of which shouted awesome at us. They all had certain things we liked but others we didn’t…generally, I find the search fun seeing as we are in NO rush to move out of our apartment. I enjoyed my chai tea during the drive around Roseville!

Don’t really have any ideas what my fall craft should be any ideas? Let me know!

Fashion Friday: Calypso St. Barth Looks for Less

Good morning lovelies. Welcome to FASHION FRIDAY!

Let’s be real. I would love to be able to walk into a Kate Spade or Coach and just buy whatever I want. But I can’t. I am on a budget and I am guessing you are too! But that doesn’t mean you can’t look the part! In Todays, Look for Less we are mimicking an adorable outfit found on Calypso St. Barth! If I could, I think I would buy just about everything on their website…I mean come on it’s adorable and totally my style! This look brings together the boyfriend jean with a slouchy sweater that is just perfect for a weekend outing to the farmer’s market! Instead of going the expensive route, I have done a round-up of similar styles from other brands. Look at this price savings!

Calypso St Barth Look for Less

That is a $1085 savings! Do you know what you could do for $1000 in savings? You could….

What is one thing you will splurge or save on this fall?

My Favorite Deal Websites {List}

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE getting deals. I will spend Saturday scouring a Goodwill to find that one pair of designer jeans that the person in back just luckily missed! Online deal sites aren’t new and have been on the rise for a while but these are just a few of my favorites!

No More Rack

This website is great, though, it does need some help with design. This is where I got my latest purse and some other essentials like leggings, etc. I have gotten a million questions about where I got my purse…so I thought I would share this site with you.


Pick Your Plum

Ami introduced me to this awesome site. It’s got a wide gamut of options but mainly focuses on women, children, and crafts. I recently purchased our welcome totes for only $7.99! 



Fab is just fun. They have a great way of showcasing their goods and it makes it easy to buy. My favorites on here are their home goods, posters/art, and gifts! You’ll see more from them I am guessing around Christmas Gift Guide time! :)




Woot is where I would go if I was looking for electronics or a funny tee! They also have grab bag tees which are always a fun surprise!


The Clymb

If you dig the outdoors, I highly recommend getting on this website. It’s always got great deals on Columbia, Merrell, and more! I love checking out the fitness and hiking gear!


Mighty Deals


This is for all my bloggers and designers out there. I love this site for finding deals on templates, fonts, and more!


What is your favorite deal site?
