Salted Caramel Mocha Cookies

Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha Cookies | Luci's Morsels
After an incredibly warm week, we're off to the only logical place - the desert! It sounds crazy, I know. We know. But my guy and I have to work again this weekend and we're in serious need of a change of scenery. So we booked a hotel for two nights that has a pool and wifi! If you have any suggestions for coffee, food, or shopping in Palm Desert, please send them my way! And don't forget to follow our heated (literally) adventures on Instagram!

I couldn't just take off on you like that without leaving you something fun and delicious. And after a free sample in Starbucks a few weeks ago, it oddly seems like the just the right season for these yummy cookies no matter how hot it is outside!

How to Find a Hairstylist Perfect for You

How to Find a Hairstylist Perfect for You | Luci's MorselsWhen we were getting ready to move last year, one of the things that scared me was having to find a new hairstylist. I'd finally found the person who understood me and my hair (all of it) and was able to take what I was envisioning and make it happen!The braids and styling on a daily basis are me (and my arsenal of must-have products), but the cut and color that I love is all my stylist Jay! He's the one who worked for 5 seemingly endless hours to bring me back to being a blonde from a very dark brunette and, over a few visits, made me the blonde I am today (see the transformation below)!

Because work takes me back to northern California frequently enough, I haven't had to find a new stylist, but I recently asked him the best way to go about this frightening but crucial process. He gave me some tips and insider advice for anybody in a new area or looking for a change!

The Little Black Bag

Small Black Crossbody Purse by @toryburch | Luci's Morsels
Well it's gotten to the point where I know I've worn this black jumpsuit to too many events. After about the third evening out wearing this piece (over the course of one month), it was getting noticeable. The thing is, the jumpsuit is so non-committal - it's dressy but not stuffy and it's casually comfortable while still being fitted. So when you don't know what to wear (like to that chocolate lab party), it's the perfect go-to piece. I usually wear heels, but I know it would look good with flats as well.
