1. Taking even 15 minutes to workout each day has become such a great part of my morning routine. I’ve been following the videos from Melissa Wood Health and I LOVE them. You can choose from workouts that are anywhere between 15-45 minutes. They are all yoga/pilates based with some great core and strength work. […]

life + style  in southern california

capturing everyday beauty 

welcome

Pretty Smitten began as a creative outlet after the birth of my first child in 2008. What started as a sweet little Etsy shop has now grown into a full Southern California Life + Style site featuring home decor, food, entertaining and wellness content. I believe there is beauty in the simplified, and I strive to create a beautiful happy home where we can stop to enjoy the little things. I hope within this blog you'll find a little inspiration for your own home life as well.

I'm also now thrilled to be offering fine art lifestyle photography. Documenting love in all forms is truly a gift...sweet little newborns, expecting mamas, families and couples...photos are our only "pause button."  Learn more about Elizabeth Johnson Photography by clicking below!

Wallpaper for Little Girls

We’re in the process of updating both Amelia’s room and Charlotte and Emmy’s room and wallpaper is in the plans for sure. In my search I’ve come across so many beautiful options so I wanted to share them with all […]

Stairway Gallery Wall

By far one of my very favorite projects to date that we’ve done in our home is the gallery wall on our stairs. To see all of their cute faces when I walk up or down the stairs makes me smile every time! And as cheesy as it may sound, seeing these photos so many […]

Neutral Outdoor Entertaining

It’s getting to be my favorite time of year when outdoor entertaining becomes a daily event! We’ve been all spending more time at home, gathered with our immediate family, but even though we might not be hosting huge gatherings quite yet that doesn’t mean you can’t make dinner in your own backyard special. It honestly […]

It’s been a work in progress (and still is….as most home projects are, right???) and unfortunately some items are […]
