weekend reads + a giveaway featuring lorna jane activewear and drybar!

May 16, 2014


Some light reading for your Friday:

The wildfires that have been raging through northern San Diego are just terrible. More than 10,000 acres have been burned, people have been evacuated, homes have been destroyed, and so far, one burned body was found. Sad and scary. I’m thankful that my worst problem is our sweltering apartment. Thankfully today the temps will start dropping, and the weekend should get the city’s thermostat back to normal. Fingers crossed.

How to plan your perfect nap.

Jaden Smith’s cryptic tweets actually make total sense as Garfield cartoons.

What’s the most commonly spoken language in your state after English and Spanish? California’s surprised me.

I’m obsessed with reading really detailed food and beauty diaries. This Cindy Crawford piece is no exception.

Now for a giveaway! Australian activewear brand Lorna Jane will be hosting an event tomorrow in La Jolla with a workout led by LJ herself, Drybar blow outs, healthy juices from L.A.’s Juice Served Here, and for the first 5 My SoCal’d Life readers to show up, a $50 credit to spend in the store. Just tell them “My SoCal’d Life sent me.” I’ll be there, so I hope to see your workout-ready selves tomorrow, too! Here’s all the info and you can RSVP right here:

Hope to see you there, and have a lovely weekend!

    I’ve been reading about the wildfires and it truly is terrifying — so glad you’re okay.

      That’s interesting (and important) to learn that some of it was incorrect. As for emphasizing language boundaries, I didn’t take it that seriously (and I’m a minority!). I took it more as “idle curiosity” as he put it. Thanks for sharing!

      I basically want to do everything she says so I can be that much of a babe when I’m her age.
