Happy Halloween

This Halloween, instead of carving pumpkins, we decided to decorate our house. Luckily, our adventure took up to Julien this year, where we found the perfect accessory to any October themed party - apples. Along with a baskets of red, green and golden apples we added a few sparkly touches to the house to spark up our spirits for the spooky holiday.


Accessories at a Ball

I always love finding hidden gems at special events, restaurants or shops, and during my weekend adventure at M.Dot's Gatsby Affair Fall 2010 fashion show at the W Hotel, that's just what happened. While waiting to say congrats to the designer, I captured a few classic cameras, head scarves wrapped around plastic mannequins and vintage costume jewelry. It got us thinking about accessories; any pop can truly make or break an outfit....or the ambiance of an affair. Perfect.


Halloween with Caramel Apples

After picking and consuming too many apples this weekend, and spotting the recent posting on one of my favorite blogs, I couldn't image not celebrating Halloween without a few caramel apples. Simple and straight to the point, it didn't even matter that they weren't the most gorgeous of specimens (let's hope the next batch gets a little better!) because they tasted delicious! 


Apple Picking

This weekend I was able to check off one of the many "to-dos" for living in San Diego - apple picking in Julian. The weather was absolutely perfect (apparently we missed the fog back home) and after a five hour hike avoid some cow road blocks, the rest of the afternoon was spent indulging in what Julian is known for most - apples. Our bag was filled to the brim with sweet apples (all of which we tried a few too many times) and then spent eating three types of apple pie a la mode.

Now my only problem is what to do with all these apples....got a great idea from Cupcakes & Cashmere...


Tick Tock, Tick Tock

While getting my watch sized this afternoon (as seen here), I discovered a little watch shop with great service and even better decor. It isn't often that there are shops these days that are anything but random jewels and evil little men, but this hidden gem offered surprise after surprise. I felt like I was walking back in time, or into the film set for "Benjamin Button" with these large scale watches.  


Hiking in the city

In my training for the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure, I visited a hiking trail a few weeks back and snapped this picture during the 8th mile. Quite a surprise for just a few miles off Black Mountain Road.
