Carrie Bradshaw Lied
For the few of you who don’t know blogger Kathleen Barnes, a.k.a. Carrie Bradshaw Lied, let me introduce you all to one of the wittiest, coolest girls you’ll every want to know. One of the reasons I love Kathleen’s blog (and so does everyone else) is her ability to make wearable everyday clothing look both effortless and chic while always sharing a bit of herself. Her Southern charm not only comes across in her smile but her words. Kathleen’s blog is one of the few blogs I actually read, she’s so open, honest and funny. Yes, I know I always gush about our Bloggers of the Month and that’s because I have a secret…. I only work with really down to earth nice people that I like. It’s true! Being a kind, relatable, nice person is important to me in all aspects of life but when I want to share who and what I like it’s important that those people are nice. It’s kinda simple.
There’s nothing better than an amazing location when you have an amazing to friend to share it with. Did you know that the top two bloggers in the OC are great friends? We did! Once we knew we were shooting at the Montage Laguna Beach (so rad btw) I thought why not bring a friend to enjoy the view at Mosaic Bar & Grille. Cheers to blogger Nikki Minton of My Style Diaries for hanging out!

One of the best things about the Montage Laguna Beach is you don’t have to choose between the beach or the pool, you can to both in one afternoon.
