Sugar & Spice stemmed from fashion and although it is still a big part of what we do, it is not all we do. Not even close. We are the roots and as we are growing, Sugar & Spice is growing too. No one is just one thing, and we want our site, channels and lifestyles to testify that. We want to bring all parts of us to the table.
We are visionaries. We are artists. We are doers. We are trying to leave a positive impact through the things we create and the words we write. We want to pour ourselves out of every outlet we can because that’s how badly we want to connect with you. We want to be real with you. We want to inspire you. We want to inspire each other. We want to use every gift, every thought, every dream we have to do our part in building a brighter, better connected world. And most importantly we want you to know that we don’t do this for us. We do this for you, in hopes that you will do it for someone else.
Our blog is our mouthpiece, our way to express what we are going through, what we’re learning, and where we’re going. It’s our place to connect with people who connect with what we create.
Sugar & Spice isn’t a fashion blog, it’s our life. It’s our story. Thanks for being a part of it.
PATRICK FINALLY RECEIVED NEW LUNGS.
Patrick and Nicole received a call on July 6th that Patrick’s new lungs were ready for him at Standford hospital. They hopped on a plane and went in to surgery when they arrived! He went in to surgery late July 6th and finished July 7th.. 07/07 is Nicole’s birthday and now 07/07/14 is the beginning of her and Patrick’s new life. What an incredible gift for them to receive on such a special day. The doctors said he had a VERY successful surgery, and nicole said by day 2 he had “ no more oxygen, no more ICU, ate multiple meals (including PF Changs), sat up for 4+ hours + so much more amazingness.” We are so excited to watch this miracle unfold exactly a year later from when the “Patrick’s Breath of New Life” campaign launched. We are so incredibly inspired by Patrick’s strength and Nicole’s support for him. We want all of you to join us in sending them your prayers and support during his recovery. #PRAY4PATRICK
Blessings to everyone who has supported him by buying our shirt and donating to his campaign!!
Let’s keep him, his loved ones and the loved ones of the donor in our thoughts and prayers.
PS. They’ve started a new campaign for this new chapter! We’ve been part of their journey thus far. Let’s continue the support.

This is my favorite place in all of LA. When I’m upset, I like to go here. I love the sound of the ocean and the way the wind feels on my face while I swing. There’s something about swinging that makes you forget everything you’re worried about. It makes me realize how small my problems are and how big my potential is. It makes me remember that it’s hard to stay upset when there is so much beauty in the world.
34°0°30 N 118°29°41 W is my special place.
My special place isn’t a place I visit often. In fact, I really only stood there once. But the brief time I spent was so raw, so eye opening, it stood out above familiarity. Have you ever had an experience like that? Where everything stops and all you have is what’s in front of you and it’s utterly breathtaking? Like nothing else before or after mattered? I had that and I will never be the same, in the best way.
32°58’57.9″N 97°02’16.8″W is my special place.

Her Story: “Near where I live in upstate NY there is a road name Liddiard Rd. It’s is an old, one lane, dirt road with just a couple of abandon log cabins on it. It is my special place because growing up my dad and I both shared a love for this “forgotten” street and we would go running there together every morning in the summer time. My daddy passed on June 22, 2012 when I was 16, but this road still holds so many memories and will always be my favorite place to go to think or clear my head.”
