I flew to Los Angeles for a few days last month. I went to Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Joshua Tree, Palm Springs and around and about West Hollywood. I recently bought a GoPro so I decided to try it out and film this short trip with it. Hope you enjoy! x

What a better way to enjoy the summer than walking bare feet on the beach, feeling the hot sand between your toes; wearing your brightest swimsuit once you have somewhat of a tan; eating delicious ice creams (this one is from pop bar in Manhattan. Absolute must try!); eating fresh lobster rolls and sipping on a margarita by the marina. Gotta love the summertime! What have you been up to this summer? x

Happy Monday!

Meet Jack.


On my Fall bucket list I obviously wrote to carve pumpkins for Halloween. I make Jack-O’-Lanterns every year but I had never painted a pumpkin before. So I decided to give it a try this year and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! It’s pretty basic but I think it looks adorable! What do you think? :)

6 easy steps to carving a pumpkin:
heartyellow(smallblog) Get a pretty pumpkin (obviously)
Cut the top of the pumpkin at a 45 degree angle (so the top doesn’t fall in)
heartyellow(smallblog) With a spoon (or hands!) scoop out the flesh
heartyellow(smallblog) Draw your design on the pumpkin with a pen or by poking small holes
Carve the features with a mini saw
heartyellow(smallblog) Place battery-operated tea lights inside the pumpkin to light it

✶ Don’t throw away the pumpkin seeds once you’re done! After being roasted they make a healthy and delicious snack!

Dans ma liste de choses à faire en Automne, j’ai bien sur parlé de la création de citrouilles pour Halloween. Je le fais chaque année mais je n’avais jamais peint une citrouille avant cette année. J’ai donc essayé de jouer à l’artiste et même si elle est simple, je la trouve plutôt réussie! Qu’en pensez-vous? :)

6 étapes pour créer votre Jack-O’-Lantern:
heartyellow(smallblog) Trouver une jolie citrouille (évidemment)
Découper le dessus de la citrouille à un angle de 45 degrés (afin qu’il ne tombe pas)
Avec une cuillère (ou vos mains!) enlever la chair
Dessiner votre motif à l’aide d’un stylo ou en faisant de petits trous
Découper votre motif à l’aide d’une petite scie
heartyellow(smallblog) Déposer des petites bougies à pile à l’intérieur de la citrouille pour l’éclairer

✶ Une fois terminée, ne jetez pas les pépins de la citrouille! Après être passés au four, c’est le snack parfait!
