It’s kind of, almost, sort of Fall in LA now. Basically it’s not in the triple digits and we can open our windows at night. That’s a plus!

I’m going home to Sacramento this weekend and I’m so excited! I haven’t been since the 4th of July and that’s way too long for me. I know some people only go home a couple times a year, but I can’t do that. Also, I need quick, easy Halloween costume ideas. I’ve never been a Halloween person, but I’m not a party pooper! I think by the time Halloween comes around, I’m already onto Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it kind of just passes me by.

I’m not typically a jewelry person because I am so indecisive, I apparently have expensive taste, and I never know what goes with what, but when RocksBox approached me and I took a look at what they had to offer, I couldn’t turn it down; it’s literally the answer to all my jewelry problems. First world issues, I know, I know. Rocksbox is a monthly subscription based jewelry rental service; For only $19 a month, you can rent 3 pieces of designer jewelry at a time and return the box, anytime you are ready, or you can choose to buy the pieces if you fall in love. Free shipping both ways, a $10 credit each month towards buying jewelry pieces if you choose to, and no specific time frame to send back the pieces. Um, I’m a fan!

Use the code jenniferbeilexoxo to sign up for RocksBox and your first month will be free! I’m totally in love with this Sophie Harper Gold Bar Layer Necklace. I can’t wait to show you what else I received in my October package!

Hey, it’s just me. Still waiting for Fall to start. Any day now LA. Green leaves are beautiful and all, but I’m ready for some orange and red. Hell, I’ll take bare trees if that’s what you need to do. I just really need a bit of Fall in my life. I’ll keep pretending and wearing sweaters, hats, and jackets while I crank up the air conditioner, just to make myself feel better. Yeah, I’m that whiny LA resident. I miss seasons. You can take the sunshine and warmth, all of it. I just want a crisp Fall. Luckily I am going home for a long weekend in a couple of weeks. It’s been hot there too, but should cool off by then.

In other news, I am impatiently waiting for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I am another one of those people who have been extremely excited to already see Christmas up in stores. If you don’t like it, steer clear of Target and Michaels for sure. I’ll take it all in, enough for all of you.

This whole entry has come off very passive aggressive so far, hasn’t it. I think my unintentional blog break made me a bit rusty.

Let’s start over. Happy hump day!

How completely dorky would it be for me to create a holiday bucket list; Maybe my own version of the 25 Days of Christmas? I feel like I wait all year long for this time of season and then it’s over in a blink of an eye and I’m just left wallowing in my post holiday depression.

If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them!

Also, this blog needs a major overhaul and a face lift; a real domain, regular content and scheduled posts, possibly a professional photographer so I don’t have to drag my poor husband around. I’m trying to find some time to really learn just how to go about that. I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions, but this year might have to change.

Last weekend was our one year wedding anniversary, if you didn’t already realize by the wedding photo spam that slapped you in the face over here. We headed to Palm Springs for an extended weekend with plans to relax and not do much else. Mission accomplished! I woke up sick the second morning of our stay, so we were forced to stick to our relaxation plan and had to cut our exploring to a short stroll downtown on Sunday. It was hot as shit that weekend anyway, triple digits each day, so we spent time in our comfortable, air conditioned hotel room, went out for dinners at State Fare Bar + Kitchen at the Ritz Carlton hotel and Simon Kitchen and Bar at The Hard Rock Hotel, and night swam. I highly recommend both restaurants! State Fare was so incredible in helping us celebrating our night; we were given a hand signed card, complimentary champagne, the booth with the best view, and the musical talent for the night played our song on request! Also, if you’re ever in the area, you have to at least stop by Simon Kitchen and Bar and get the Bacon Jam appetizer. Have to. I’ve already made a copy cat version.

We took a chance on the Hotels Tonight app for the first time and ended up booking two different hotels as an exuse to experience a bit more.The first night we stayed a bit farther out of Palm Springs at the Westin Mission Hills Resort. It’s a time share (we were not pressured into listening to any lectures or buying anything), and more family oriented. Our room was like an apartment! It was really nice to have a kitchen and our own little patio. The second night we stayed at the Riviera Palm Springs, which had a younger vibe and the most comfortable bed and delicious chocolate lava cake (that of course we ate in said bed watching a movie because there’s no better way to enjoy chocolate cake).

Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to take advantage of most of the resort and hotel’s offerings, like the spa and golf range. It gives us a good reason to go back soon!

We had such a wonderful weekend! I think we might only go back druring the cooler months; we aren’t typcically hot weather people. It seems like pool lounging and eating are the only two things to do in the town, however, so if you’re more adventurous and into lots of activities, this might not be the vacation city for you.

This is definitely not an ad, by the way. I wish it were! It would mean we were compensated for our trip, ha!

Also, David surprised my by renting a convertible for the weekend. So much fun!

We know I love a good jumpsuit! I do have a couple more in my closet and wouldn’t be opposed to add to my growing collection!

Look, I do smile! I tend to not full on smile in blog photos – no reason why. I think I was smiling in theses photos because David was following me down the street, like my own personal paparazzi. This is actually my embarrassed smile; It was a Sunday morning, prime brunch time and the street traffic was heavy.

This is my last day before entering my last year of my twenties. It’s like my own personal New Year’s Eve. I have always thought that the real start of a new year was on your birthday, because, that literally is the end and beginning of a new year for you. I don’t make resolutions, but I do tend to make a mental list of goals and personal priorities to continue to better myself. I am hoping that this year I actually follow through. Maybe I should write it down! Has anyone ever done one of those “30 things before 30” goal lists and been successful with it?

I don’t know how I feel about getting older. I think I am generally okay with it; I’ve always been an old lady at heart anyway!

Alright, I know I am not actually jumping for joy in these photos, but I am in love with a good jumpsuit and this is one of the good ones. I spied this baby on the Crossroads Instagram a couple months back as a part of their new merchandise stock and did not wait to run to my local store to pick it up. It’s so perfect. I think I wore it three days in a row last week. This might be why I only post once a week or so; I get obsessed with a certain outfit and I basically wear it out.

p.s. I want to wear this flower crown every day.

It has already been a super long week for me, although it’s only Wednesday. I am planning a super quiet weekend with a lot of sleep! I am beginning to realize just how much sleep I get and deprive myself of and it’s definitely catching up to me.

I was so deliriously happy with the rain in So Cal this weekend! While everyone else was complaining, I was running to my windows every time I saw the lightening flash and heard the thunder shake our windows. This weekend was spent running errands and giving our apartment a good deep cleaning. We spent Saturday night indulging in a Top Chef catch up marathon, listening to the rain, and ordering in food. So simple, and so perfect.

We may have had ourselves a little rain storm, but it was still super warm out! I love this denim mini skirt I picked up from Crossroads and have so many things to pair it with, but started with this flowy blouse from SheIn for the perfect casual weekend outfit.

Towards the end of our photo session, we got caught in some more wind and the beginning of some more rain. I wasn’t complaining!

I hope you are enjoying your week! I can’t believe it’s almost August! Why does the time go by so much faster the older you get? I am trying to find a way to slow down and enjoy the moment, instead of thinking what’s coming ahead and missing the present.

Getting dressed and realizing that I’ve ended up head to toe in Crossroads finds, thrifted or new merchandise, happens a lot. It’s definitely my first stop, whether I’m looking for something specific or just have an urge to shop. It’s a place that I can go that I don’t have to worry about looking at the price tag and being disappointed and then depressed that I have to leave it behind. I could gush all day!

I’ve worn this outfit multiple times, and it might look familiar because I wore it to the Crossroads Spring Social shopping party a month or so ago and shared some photos on Instagram. It came back into the rotation and I remembered that I never took proper photos!

Also, I think you need to know that the Backstreet Boys documentary is now on Netflix, so you’re running out of excuses to not see it. It’s that simple.

This is me just thinking about watching it. For real. Except at this exact moment, I really am watching it. We don’t really need to explain how happy it makes me, because I’d like you to think I’m a bit more normal than I really am.
