California Love in Newport

August 24, 2012 · 3 comments

While in California for work, I was able to meet up with one of my college roommates, Cher! After the Tone It Up Cocktail Party in Manhattan Beach, I hopped in my rental and drove down for an overnight visit. In the morning, we took a long walk and explored the town a little bit.2012 08 23 10 04 40

Cher knows me and brought me to this cute little coffee shop, where I grabbed a fruit and yogurt parfait. I love west coast shops. They always seem to have options that are healthier than typical muffins and bagels.

I saw this ring on the kitchen counter top and snapped a few pictures since I thought it was gorgeous. Her stuff is very coastal, handmade and original. You can check out her shop Kula Kai here.

I can’t imagine living in a place like this. I don’t think I could work ever! I’ll post more about the TIU cocktail party tomorrow but gotta get some sleep before my early call time. I’m shooting an online video for T-Mobile out here before flying back to Boston for wedding in Vermont. It’s been a busy summer and I’m looking forward to a laid back fall (plus Fitbloggin and 1/2 marathons…)

That ring is so pretty!! And that fruit parfait looks awesome – the fruit seems like it’s super fresh.

Love the ring! I just longed on to her site and she is talented. I see so many awesome choices for the women I work with, rediscovering themselves and living a life of health and self love. Does she ever partner with other blogs to design for a certain group of women?
