my new favorite necklace...

I love being able to throw on a piece of jewelry that truly stands out. A great piece of jewelry can really make an outfit great. I love my new + sooo beautiful Seasons Caravan necklace from the wonderful Brooklyn jewelry brand Scosha (you HAVE to check them out)! Sometimes I don't have much time to think about what I'm wearing, so having this beautiful piece to just throw on and make my outfit fashionable makes my sometimes (most of the time) crazy life all the easier. We can all get behind something like that, right? Be sure to check more lovely pieces from Scosha here. Ps-they have guy's stuff too. Happy Monday, friends!

being cook: Fresh Strawberry Muffins

So about these delicious muffins... they are basically the bomb.com! I loved incorporating my really fresh strawberries in this recipe to capture the flavor. So good! I am sharing the recipe below for you guys to all try for yourselves. Good luck friends + happy cooking. 

Prep Time: 15 minutes     Cook Time: 25 minutes     Servings: 16 to 18 muffins

INGREDIANTS

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 1/4 cups milk
2 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
2 cups diced fresh strawberries
1 1/2 cups sugar

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper liners.

Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Stir with your hand to be sure the ingredients are combined. In a 2-cup glass measure, combine the milk, eggs, and melted butter. Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture, pour the wet mixture into the well, and stir until just combined. There will be some lumps, but don't overmix the batter! Add the strawberries and sugar and stir gently to combine.

Using a 2 1/4-inch ice cream scoop, spoon the batter into the muffin cups to fill the liners. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean and the tops are nicely brown.

spring in silverlake...

I have to say, I kinda have the sneaky suspicion that I may be a california gal at heart. The beach, the weather and the chill vibes are definitely more me sometimes. I had so much fun a few months ago being shown around LA by one of my favorite locals, Morgan Johnson of Morgan Johnson Photography. We had a great time exploring Silverlake. We went to vintage shops, an army surplus store and even grabbed some tea at an AMAZING Moroccan gem. Be sure to check out more of Morgan's amazing work here
