A Custom Gift

When art inspires your life you subconciously incorporate it into your wardrobe and use it concisously  to create things you love. I took a recent pic of mine displaying some Mondrian inspired art to create this custom phone case. Thanks to Caseapp I'm now walking around with a little piece of art that I love in my pocket! 
With the holidays here a custom iphone case, or custom laptop skin would make a great personalized gift for friends and family...or for yourself! I feel that getting a fun little personalized gift for your best friend, sister, brother would be perfect. You know someone you know very well which would make creating something you know they will love extra special. For that reason I have teamed up with Caseapp to be able to offer you all 20% off your order for the month of December!

Street Style Love

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend with friends and family. For those who celebrated Thanksgiving and traveled far to spend time with loved ones, hope it was a fun trip! I spent it with my family here in L.A. and had a wonderful time. First time we didn't eat turkey and opted to go to a restaurant. Food was great! In the morning I had to have me a slice of pumking pie :)) That just makes me so happy. Crazy how a little treat can make you feel so good. 

This is one of my favorite shoots recently because my friend and I did a wallcrawl in Downtown L.A. My friend thought this wall was perfect for this street style outfit. Most of the pieces I'm wearing are from H&M. I love the all so much. These jeans are my favorite right now, I want to buy more of them because it's not always the case that you find the perfect pair of jeans, right? They are super comfortable in the most stretchiest of fabrics. My Stan Smith Adidas I've had for almost 2 years and they are my most favorite tennies because of the leopard print detail. They are one of my precious things. lol! I have to say that street style speaks to me so much and it's what I feel the most like myself in because I am was a city kid. I spent half my childhood in the city of San Francisco where my heart still beats. 

 Here's to hoping you catch some great Black Friday deals lovelies!

Coat Inspo

Cheers everyone! Teal and yellow are two of my most favorite color combos ever. I love so many but this has got to be on my top 5. So of course when I thought about bringing some coat inspo to the blog, I had to shoot at this cool yellow wall. This lovely teal coat you see here is my sister's and I love to borrow it every year at some point because it is just so chic. The golden button trim detail is so pretty and elegant. Along with the pockets and pea-coat style it is just an amazing piece to own. I'm so lucky to have a sister that will share her precious with me once in a while, haha! 

Hope you like my coat inspo! Not very cold over here yet, but we're getting there. Hopefully we will have a winter here in Los Angeles this year. 
Are you a coat lover? If you love this coat in particular I found it on sale at Poshmark and linked it for you down below. Only one in a size M. You can totally thrift it!

The Power of Black

Hi awesome friends! Today I'm talking about the power of the color black. To me black evokes feelings of empowerment, confidence, and makes me feel well put together. I truly do feel more confident when I wear it, not to mention it's slimming affect on the body.
Jacket: Newchic//Off-shoulder Dress: SheIn(similar)//Boots: Nordstrom (similar)

 Although at times black is a color that is associated with death and sadness, it does not cause me any sort of unwanted feelings. It is the total opposite, I feel happier when I wear it for sure! How do you feel about the color black? I'd love to know if you feel the same as I do, or the total opposite. 

Much Love,

November Dancing in the chaos

A thing that I love to do is to change a non-desired outcome into a positive one, because things aren't always perfect. Once I get an idea in my head I do my best to see it come to fruition. This shoot was one of those ideas, haha! It was raining, and there was paint all over the floor, but a little patience and positive thinking made it a possibility to get the shots you see now.  Yay!!!

"If you can dream it, you can do it."-Walt Disney

This is Downtown L.A. and I love this black wall. It got grafitti on it, they repainted it and the paint splattered all over the floor. So instead of worrying about getting a perfect clean shot, I decided to let it be part of the shoot. Beauty is everywhere, even on a paint splattered floor. Let's dance our way through November, shall we? :))

Much Love,

Mindfulness & Happiness

I'm dedicating this post to health and wellness with a fun shoot I did recently, in hopes of bringing you closer to your happy place. Like many people, I've gone through hardships to the point where I felt lost. I had to seek help in dealing with anxiety and PTSD. I was taught Mindful Awareness through a therapist who later became my lifecoach. Without this practice I feel that my anxiety would get the better of me, and I would not be the calm collective person I've become. 
The practice of Mindfulness requires you to pay attention to whatever is going on around you. In other words, it's being in the moment. Not in the past or in the future, actually living your life with an awareness that the NOW is what matters. It's the only time where you are actually in control of how you react to what happens around you. 
"The Intuitive mind is a sacred gift, the rational mind a faithful servant, we have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." - Albert Einstein

For me Mindfulness helped me heal emotionally and mentally. It taught me to be kinder to myself. It taught me to be more appreciative of the people around me, and helped me recognize how much of a positive impact I can actually have in the world. I am a happier and healthier person because of it. I would recommend the practice of Mindful Awareness to anyone searching for balance and happiness in their lives. 

Check out UCLA's Mindful Awarenss Research Center for more information. Free guided meditations can be played on your computer or  directly downloaded to your phone via iTunes HERE.

Much Love,
