Fall in NYC!

My favorite season of the year has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited! Especially because I get to spend it in my favorite city of all time. The leaves actually change color here and the crisp, cool weather means I can bundle up with scarves and hats (my favorite)!! Fall also means anniversary dinners […]

Flying Kitties

To say that my husband and I were a little nervous to fly with our (three!) kitties across the country is an understatement. When we first found out about our big move from LA to NYC, figuring out how to transport the cats became our sole obsession: How would we do it? Would they be okay? Who’s […]

Packing Up, Moving Out

Goodbye LA. Goodbye apartment. Goodbye traffic. Goodbye Echo Park. Goodbye Taix. Goodbye Masa. Goodbye Silverlake Reservoir. Goodbye Runyon walks. Goodbye echo park lake. Goodbye bandmates.

Mom & Pop: Echo Park

I plan to do a “best-of” series over the next few months in both LA and OC (and eventually in NYC)…focusing mainly on mom & pop shops, restaurants, and bars. I want to document my favorite things in and around the city and promote these local establishments so they continue to thrive for many years […]

In the studio

My band, Single Girl, Married Girl, and I are getting ready to record an EP in the early summer, but we need to have solid demos first. Yesterday, we met up at 21st Century Recording Studio in Silverlake to give it a go!   At the mic (isn’t it cool looking?? It lit up blue […]

Inch By Inch

WE’RE DOING IT!!! I Still can’t believe we’re doing it! My husband and I recently found out that we will be making the move from Southern California to New York City this Fall for his work. I have ALWAYS wanted to live in NYC, so this comes as a welcome change. As a true Southern […]
