Happy New Year!

I don’t know about you, but this year seemed to fly by! Like any year there were ups and there were downs, but I’m happy to say it was mostly ups! As far as travel is concerned I wasn’t sure I’d ever beat 2016, but with trips to, New Orleans, the American Southwest, and London not to mention road trips throughout California, and extensive exploration of Los Angeles I would say 2017 definitely gave it a run for it’s money.

Merry Xmas from Hilarystyle!

I love receiving mail, don’t you? Not email, I’m talking about the old-fashioned paper kind that gets delivered to your postbox by a mailperson. I love to send it, and I love to receive it, but the truth is I’m sending and receiving almost no mail these days with one major exception: Holiday cards!

Bonus: All those delicious meals together!

Happy Place Los Angeles

Can a person be too happy? Is that even possible? I didn’t think so, but I admit to being accused of it on occasion. Yep, that’s right, I was once accused of smiling too much! That was awkward, but you can’t keep me down!

Shopping the Sample Sales in LA’s Fashion District

Hilarystyle is about travel, fashion and fun, but I admit it’s been awhile since I’ve written about fashion. Truth be told it’s hard to think about a change in wardrobe when here in LA it hardly seems like we ever have a change in seasons. Not that I’m compaining about what feels like perpetual summer.

5 Places to Get Your Groove on in LA

Music plays a large roll in our family’s everyday life, in fact as I write this I can hear my older son practicing his guitar in the other room. Lucky for us we all have similar taste in music. I’m not sure if it was our blatent attempts to infuse our musical tastes into the boys right from the start, or if its just a happy coincidence, but either way we lucked out. I’m so grateful!
