from the weekend: endless summer

09.15.14-weekendJust as the rest of the country is cooling down, LA gets hotter than ever. September and October here always feel more like summer than any of the other months and we are soaking up every last bit. I am finally starting to feel a bit like myself again after the first trimester had me down for the count, and it was beyond wonderful to be able to get out and hang with friends, celebrate a dear one’s birthday, spend some time at the beach, dine al fresco, and even do a little shopping.

This weekend was also the kick off to the Gap #DressNormalProject that I was a part of. There was a Gap pop-up shop on Abbot Kinney where some of the photos I took of my friends/turned Gap models were featured alongside some talented LA photographers. It was so fun seeing my friends all over the walls of the shop (Rupe was pretty excited to see his own pretty face. ;) You can read more about it here, in the LA Times.

Hope you had a nice weekend! x

from the weekend: labor day

labor day weekendHope you guys had a beautiful three-day weekend. Unfortunately, I spent most of mine working but it wasn’t so bad since I am pretty excited about most of the things I’ve been working on (one of which I will share about tomorrow with my first ever video project!).

I also was able to squeak out some time for brunch, a quick shopping excursion to General Store, and a walk with the dogs. I also started putting together a post of our Utah/Arizona/Nevada/California road trip (top right is Rupe jumping off a boat in Lake Powell).

Happy Tuesday!

from the weekend: anniversary road trip

antelope canyon // smitten studioLast week Rupe and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary. If you remember from last year, we take turns planning a trip for the occasion and this year was my turn.

Growing up my family did a lot of traveling around the states and I love that I get to show my English husband all the favorite spots that I can remember from when I was just a young one. One of those favorite spots was Lake Powell in Utah, and that was my main jumping off point for planning a 5 night road-trip. I’ll put together a full post on the route we took, the places we stayed and the things we did, but I wanted to share one of the most magical spots from our journey (pictured above), Antelope Canyon.

from the weekend: working with friends

08.18.14weekendThis weekend I had a busy work schedule with a fun project I am working on for Gap, but I was able to enlist the help of my friends making it seem much less like work and a lot more like a party (the best kind of work day). I can’t wait to share what we got up to! After we wrapped for the day we finished off the weekend with dinner and drinks and then back home to catch the last of shark week.  Hope you had a great weekend. x

from the weekend: pink sky california

pink sky california // smitten studioThis weekend we tinkered around the house some more, had a date night at our local sushi place, and finished it off with our favorite hike around Will Rogers State Park. It was cloudy most of the time but that made for a pretty beautiful rosy sky Sunday evening. Who needs silver linings when you can have pink!? ;)

from the weekend: michigan to la

cabin-weekendThis weekend we said sayonara to the cabin for a little while and headed back to LA, but not before sitting on the beach through one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve seen yet, and savoring every last minute in our little place of refuge. No cell signal and no wifi meant a forced unplugging but I have to say for the most part it was pretty great. A true getaway. Hope you had a lovely weekend. x sarah
