Blues

Mixing Blue Denims | Vince Striped Tee | Luci's Morsels :: LA Denim Blog
When I was in Junior High, I only wore light denim. I couldn't understand dark washes or the people who wore them. Of course, this was also when I firmly believed browns and blacks could not be matched, plaid was unacceptable, and my silver Jansport backpack was the best. I might still agree with that last statement, but I've obviously thrown the others out the window. In the last few years, I've come to love my dark denim so much that I didn't have much in the way of light washes. What's a girl who lives for jeans to do when she realized her collection is incomplete? Needless to say, this light wash denim jacket is making me super happy. I started first wearing it with my black jeans but soon threw it on with my other baby blues when the chill in the air demanded more clothes.

A Bright Retreat

A Bright Retreat | SpringHill Suites by Marriott Review | Charleston, SC #3x3 Blogger Trip 2015| Luci's Morsels :: Travel Blog
Two nights of rest back home after our girls getaway to Charleston and I'm feeling settled back into my daily grind. Because Grace and Alyssa are night owls, I was able to go to bed at my normal time, so I didn't crash too early on Sunday night. Though our schedules were packed and it seemed like every minute we were doing something and planning five others, we were able to get just enough sleep to make it through! For the last two nights of our getaway, we stayed at the SpringHill Suites by Marriott Downtown Charleston. Not only were the rooms comfortable, the view of the docks was so fun, and the bright decor was a welcome retreat from the mostly overcast days!

Kale Caesar Salad w. Lemon Pink Peppercorn Salmon

Kale Caesar Salad w. Lemon Pink Peppercorn Salmon | Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing Recipe | Luci's Morsels :: LA Healthy Food Blog
I rolled back into Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. I had a truly fantastic trip to Charleston and loved hanging out with Grace and Alyssa all week, but boy am I happy to be back in 60 degree weather (even if it was raining and hailing), in my own bed, and back next to my guy! Traveling with food lovers means our lives centered around food. If we weren't eating, we were talking about eating. I tried to have self-control, but I wasn’t perfect. I'm planning on lots of whole grains, roasted vegetables, and fruit this week before traveling again next week. Hopefully my guy doesn't mind...
