Baby, It’s Warm Outside!

23 Dec


Happy Holidays, Live & Love in LA readers!

I have taken quite a long break from posting while redesigning my blog and making it through nursing school, so bear with me! For now, enjoy this hilarious video from last week’s Saturday Night Live episode hosted by Jimmy Fallon. My girlfriends and I were laughing out loud watching this at our big-girl sleepover this past weekend.


I hope you and your special someone have a warm, snuggly holiday! Xoxo -J

All Wrapped Up

22 Dec

‘Tis the season to be…. STRESSED THE EFF OUT!?!?

I apologize in advance for how undeveloped my blog post is today. I’m a HOT CHRISTMAS MESS right now! I don’t know how some girls keep it together during this time of buying thoughtful gifts, wrapping presents (not just throwing them in a gift bag with crumpled tissue), planning their cookie baking regimen, and looking fabulously put together while doing it! I wish I looked like this…

Instead, I am quite the opposite. I look like I’ve been beaten with an ugly stick, I have been running errands in my pajamas, skipped all holiday decorations this year and currently rushing to finish this post to catch a MUCH needed hair appointment AND work until 3:00am tonight. Ah, yes, the hair situation… I haven’t brushed my hair in the last few days. Just keepin’ it real. I’ve been bartending all week rocking the “sexy messy hair” look minus the sexy.

So, this quick post is to redirect you to another awesome blog by a girl who DOES have it all together this Christmas! 🙂 My friend, Leah, writes a very fun lifestyle blog that I love to follow and so will you. She posts great holiday treat recipes and hopefully you can pick up some yummy tips! www.freutcake.com <—- Must read! She’s a real life Martha Stewart.

All that Live & Love in L.A. can tell you this week is that if you are hung up on what to get the special guy in your life who has EVERYTHING, think about giving him a little something unexpected. Dressing up in your sexy little Santa outfit or meeting him under the mistletoe should do the trick. Remember ladies, guys are simple. They like to eat, sleep and play. 😉
