I’ve been a little M.I.A. recently and all for good reason… our baby boy surprised us by coming almost three weeks early!  We’re so happy that he’s here and have been adjusting to life with a newborn – days spent nursing, napping and snuggling on repeat!  More on the sweet addition to our family later but in the meantime you can see a snap of Carter Price here.

Although my hair routine tends to be pretty basic, i.e. straightened, beach waves or these days air-dryed, it’s nice to break the mold once in a while.  Enter these Jen Atkin Hair accessories from Chloe + Isabel that I came across and with which am now obsessed!

Scott and I took some time before the baby comes to drive down the Pacific Coast Highway from San Jose to L.A.  We logged 530 miles in our rental car and made some amazing stops along the way.  The first leg from Monterey to Big Sur was one of my favorites.

We celebrated Easter with lunch and High Tea at The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa.  This was my first time experiencing High Tea and I absolutely loved every minute of it.  High Tea is held in the lobby of the hotel and includes a vast selection of exotic teas accompanied by delicious mini desserts, scones, tea sandwiches and live music.  And if you’re not abstaining from champagne like I currently am, you can add in bubbly!  We really didn’t need to eat lunch before since there was so much food served, but since we were all tea-time beginners and didn’t know any better we ate beforehand.  The Brown Palace is one of my go-to’s for special occasions, like the Champagne Cascade to kick off the holiday season as seen in this post.

I’ve been experimenting with how to dress my growing baby bump and found the perfect Easter outfit as seen in this Instagram post.
