Candid

Social media has programed us to put our best photos and lives forward. Nobody talks about the struggles and issues we face under those wonderfully edited photos we upload. Today I want to break that picture perfect image and share some candid shots that may not be so Insta-worthy. Most of these photos were shot […]

Pipes X Whitestone Jewelry Co.

Living in Los Angeles has its perks. Nice weather, nice beaches, great food and wonderful local companies. I love supporting local brands and being a part of my community. When Whitestone Jewelry Co. reached out to me, I was thrilled to find out that they were based in San Diego and Los Angeles. They started […]

Pipes X Coalition LA

This summer has been much cooler than previous LA summers. My AC isn’t blasting 24/7 and I’m not taking a shower in my sweat. These not so hot summers make a light utility jacket the perfect companion. My Coalition LA utility jacket and I have been inseparable. Coalition LA is a Peta approved apparel company […]

Sporty Stripes

The warmer weather brings out all sorts of stripes. Everything from all the lighter baby hues to the classic blue, black, red, navy and even the occasional multicolored stripes. Today I’m going a little more sporty with my Adidas stripes. I bought this sweater at the Adidas Employee Store back in Oregon from the kid’s […]

Although I live in Los Angeles, I’m an Oregonian at heart. I’m all about putting natural things in my body and on my skin. When La Bella Donna reached out to me, it was the perfect match because their products are chemical free and made with minerals. La Bella Donna’s motto is congruent with my […]

The Milky Way

Can you smell the crisp spring air when you step outside your door? I sure can! I love how spring brings out all the soft “Easter” colors. Pastels are characterized by their smooth n’ soft, silky n’ milky color. These colors are the epitome of spring and are usually paired with neutral colors for a […]

Pipes X The Mint Julep Boutique

If you know me, you know how much I love a jumpsuits. They’re comfortable, stylish and most importantly, it gives you that elongated frame. When The Mint Julep Boutique contacted me, I immediately checked out their selection of jumpsuits and fell in love with this burgundy one. The color is bold, but not loud, the fit […]
