#TBT Regal Maxi Post + Now on STITCHED9



Hi Darlings,

Since I have so many new followers, and they are growing daily I thought it would be cool to do a few #TBT (Throwback Thursday) postings of my most popular past posts. The first one being my most popular post ever, the Regal Maxi Skirt.

This skirt went viral and never really stopped, so as a tribute to my Regal Maxi I am reposting it and we have added it to STITCHED9 once again! This skirt has been pinned and repinned over 1.2 million times!! isn't that amazing? It is still one of my favorite things to wear because it can easily be dressed up or down. The pics below are a throwback, and the original pics used in the April 2012 post. I wore it with a denim jacket and a white tee.

For a limited time you can now BUY THE SKIRT on STITCHED9 or if you rather sew it you can get the video tutorial HERE


Work It Wednesday: The Bar Method!

Grand Central Market, Eggslut & The Better Booch Bar

Hi Darlings!

If you live in Los Angeles you probably started your day off talking about this mornings earthquake. I was still in bed at 6:30 when the house started to shake. I just laid in the bed to see if it was going to get worse but it didn't, and after a few seconds it was over (thank goodness!) so for those wondering, we are ok.

Now....I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This weekend was pretty good for the Goodwin's, we had a little fun in the sun, had brunch with an old friend and took the two youngest to Grand Central Market for a little breakfast at Eggslut (not a typo)

I decided that since the planking and whaling thing was so big maybe I could start a new trend of floating, lol! I figure we can all start taking pics floating on water...no?  Well, it was a thought. Either way this shot my daughter took is pretty cool. Doesn't that water look amazing?

On Saturday Chastidy and I had lunch with our friend David.
Grand Central Market is also great for buying fresh veggies, fruits, and seafood.


So there is this great little gem in downtown Los Angeles called Grand Central Market. It's a food filled yummy place where you can go stuff your face, find cool things and have a great time. I have read several reviews on a place called Eggslut, and so of course it is my duty to review such places and report back to you so I sacrificed my waistline for you and took the hubby and kids on a lil trip to the market.

Here is the thing about Eggslut, you have to wait a long time to get an egg sandwich! But I promise you it is so worth it. The line was so long the hubby took to playing with some clay and kept the kids preoccupied while I ran off to look around.

Once we finally got our food we devoured it!
That melted cheddar is so good, and the bacon was so good, and that soft bun was sooooo good. I hope you can all appreciate the sacrifice I made for you (hides face) now I have to run a little extra hard today during my workout.
 Kids washed it down with cokes and I had a raw organic orange juice that was so fresh it felt like I was sucking the juice right from the orange.
Eggslut you were amazing.
While standing in that really long line waiting for my sandwich, I met a few guys who were passing out some kombucha tea.  What is kombucha tea you ask? Well, Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage that detoxifies the body. This probiotic elixir tastes so yummy that after I had my sample I walked up to the bar to find out more. The guys were very nice and answered all my questions; they even gave me more samples to taste. I ended up buying a couple of bottles, and I may be hooked. It was so refreshing!

Daily Candy wrote "little sips of heaven" and they were right. The best part of these drinks is that they contain no fruit, juice, sugar or preservatives of any kind. They work hand in hand with expert tea purveyors to create custom organic teas that blow your mind.
