Jewelry Trunk Show in Santa Ynez Valley October 25 2018

Heather Gardner Jewelry featured at Santa Ynez trunk showIt was a stunning day in Santa Ynez Valley, specifically Solvang.  I had not ventured to my friends new home yet, but had meant to since she moved from Malibu back in February.  Her name is Amy Stuart-Gordon, founder of Stuart Style, and is a renown stylist for the like of Victoria Secret and more.  I walked into her home and from the moment I drove onto the property, I knew this place was special.  From the decor to the architectural design, I instantly fell in love.  High ceilings are my thing, and as a designer, the higher the ceiling the more inspired and free I feel... and this home was just up my alley.

My Favorite Fall Recipes October 17 2018

Favorite Fall Recipes from Heather Gardner jewelry
One of the best things about fall is enjoying the bounty from our organic garden here in Malibu. My husband is one of the most talented farmers I know- and real estate agents too :)  
And there's nothing quite like biting into a freshly picked vine ripened tomato.  I was recently asked to bring an appetizer to a dinner party for a friend's birthday at Paradise Cove.  It was the night they tested the rocket that launched up into the atmosphere and landed back on earth safely.  We ate amazing food (recipes included), drank some delicious wine, and walked to the bluffs to watch the show in the star studded sky.  While laughing with friends and listening to waves crashing from the ocean below, I was feeling pretty spoiled and grateful.

Beautiful Fall Mornings in Malibu, California October 01 2018

heather Gardner Jewelry Malibu Fall Weather at Point DumeCalifornia often times gets a bad rap for being a state without the fall season.  That is definitely not true, and it actually depends on where you are in the Golden State.  There are plenty of regions where you can witness stunning changes in the leaves of our native Sycamore trees.  However, just along the coast, you will not see too many color changes of yellow, orange, red or deep purple, like you would in Aspen or the East Coast.
