March 2014 Round-Up

March was a fun-filled, hectic, amazing adventure.

This month I headed to New York for a fashion trip and killer shoot with Studio 15 NYC, before venturing down the coast of California to Capitola for a relaxing beach-side family weekend, after which I spent a fabulous three days in New Orleans. And now I’m gearing up for a jaunt to Los Angeles in a few days for Lucky Magazine’s Lucky FABB Conference.

Just writing about all of my adventures this month is a bit exhausting.



March 2014 Round-Up


March was all about getting ready for Spring – From checking out all the fabulous new hairstyles & updos & beauty, skin care & make-up to freshen up my look to Spring cleaning & home décor updates to falling in love with Spring 2014 fashion and trends like jumpsuits & rompers.

I mixed things up on the style front between flights as well. This month I wore everything from evening-ready faux leather leggings to a killer cobalt blue bodycon dress to a black & white printed pencil skirt.

I even had the honor of collaborating with the chic New York online dress boutique Studio 15 NYC for a fun series – You can check out the first post here.


March saw something exciting for me on the food front – My very first food photo shoot. Working with Jessica Michelle Photo we captured a healthy, delicious brunch spread. The first dish that I wrote about was one of my personal favorites – Cracking Cauliflower. I can’t wait to share the rest – Including some sinfully delicious desserts you’ll love!


Despite a crazy travel schedule I did a great job of staying on top of fitness this month. While yoga, sadly, fell to the wayside, I manages to consistently get to the gym, walk, and even got in a few short runs.

New April 2014 Goals


Since March was so go-go-go I’m looking forward to spending some more time in San Francisco during April. After a fabulous, fashion-filled weekend in LA for Lucky FABB of course! 🙂 Stay tuned for some fun collaborations with local San Francisco brands & stores this month – I’ll be posting sneak peeks on Instagram so be sure to follow MCLV there!


While I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own cozy bed this month, I’m even more excited to get busy in my kitchen! I’ll be cooking up a storm and sharing the fruits of my labors so keep an eye out for some tasty recipes & sweet treats to use up all of this gorgeous Spring produce that’s hitting stores and farmers markets right now.


Gym time is great but getting back into my favorite yoga studio on a more regular basis is going to make April positively blissful. I’ve talked about it before {Motivation & Midday Workouts} but planning your workouts and fitness routine in advance can really help you stick to your goals. I’ve already blocked off two days a week for yoga for the month of April!

2014 Bucket List:

  1. Try a new class/physical activity – During my sojourn in Capitola this month I did a few hours of ocean kayaking. Not only was it quite the workout, but it was a gorgeous, relaxing experience. Definitely need a repeat stat!
  2. Publish my writing – At the urging of a friend I took a small step this month and joined a writers forum. Next step – Post something!
  3. Travel – Check!!
  4. Broaden my educational horizons – With all my travel time I’ve gone through more books that I can remember, I’ll be sharing some of my favorites soon. And once I settle back into a slightly less hectic routine I’ll be signing up for a nutrition class taught by one of my favorite vegan authors.
  5. Be a good friend – I headed to NOLA for my high school best friend’s bachelor party this month. It was an amazing trip – Great group of people, much-needed fun & frivolity, delicious food, amazing sites, and some really relaxing and educational time spent wandering around the beautiful city.

Did YOU accomplish anything you’re especially proud of this month?
