L.A. Inspired

Hi lovelies! If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen this case I designed thanks to Caseapp! I love design so much, when I can actually create something I love sharing it with others. That is the best part...why is that? Deep inside I have this feeling of wanting  to shine happiness all over the place to those who are seekers of inspiration. Something that will spark a desire in them to do what they most desire, and make this world a happier place. Corny? It may be, but that is just who I am. What do you think of my design? It's one of my palm pics that I took at some point here in Los Angeles. I hope you do make your own and share the results with me. Why not? You have a promo code now! See it down below. :))

Flower Print Romper

Hi beautiful people! I had the best time shooting my friend's wedding reception in Long Beach this past weekend. While I was there I stayed at my friend Christine's house. Her and her husband are so generous and fun to hang out with. Our vibe is always chill when we're together. In the morning I asked if she wanted to go to brunch. Of course we went! She introduced me to Tantalum, a restaurant by the marina. The restaurant is decked out in palms and all sorts of lushes greenery. That greenery is coupled with some interesting Indonesian dark wood decor. It definitely felt enjoyably relaxing to be there. That's where we shot these pics, since I still had my camera from the reception the night before. Why not right?

About the outfit...not much of a flower print kind of girl, but this one was gifted to me by Christine. I loved it as soon as I put it on that day. Maybe it's because the print and colors have a tropical feel to them, rather than the usual flower field type of print I'm used to seeing on fabrics. 

 I embraced this print even though it's not my usual style. ;)) Although I love palm print, flowers to me are a different story. Rompers on the othe hand are my jam, and the fit on this one was quite flattering. There you have it, I stepped out of my element and embraced the flower print trend that seems to never go out of style. How do you feel about flower print, small print, large print? Leave your thoughts in the comments, I love relating to you. 

P.S. I'm linking up with Style Elixir this week!

Drop Waist Peplum Dress

One of my favorite style dresses is the a drop waist dress. I find them to be effortlessly chic and so comfortable. They are easy to slip into, and they are forgiving around the mid section. They are very much a type of shift dress to me, infact I though it was because of the looseness around the waist.
 I love them because they have a retro feel to them. My mom even told me it reminded her of the dresses she used to wear as a teen. Late 60's and early 70's were her teen years. I love that she connected with this dress. How do you feel about drop waist dresses? How about peplum ones? They are short, sweet, and so chic to me.

Keeping it cool: Button Down Jean Mini

Wow, almost done with July. I feel like summer is slidding by me. Yesterday was my last day at my old job. Today I start my new one, can't wait for this new little chapter in my life. I think it's the beginning of a beautiful one! 

This weekend I had endless things to prepare for and shop for. I wore this outfit to run around in because we had one of our L.A. heatwaves. Let me tell you I melted this past week. Not to mention we had the fires nearby, which left the sky looking gloomy and so many people out of their homes. I had to be thankful the gloomy hot weather is all I had to endure. 
 It was an eventful and stressfilled week, but I did my best to keep my cool. I thanked and expressed my gratituted to all my closests people at my old job and prepared for a new adventure. I also had fun planning a goodbye party for a few of my clients. This made my departure a fun one instead of a sad one. 

Giving thanks to you all who stop by and read my blog whenever you can! It makes my week. :))

With so much love,

Wide-Leg Chambray Pants

Hi friends! Have you ever felt so exausted you want to cry, but are too tired to even do that? Working two jobs, and doing photography work on the side has been a challenge for the past 3 weeks. Why did I take on so much? Number one is to make a living, and number two is to provide for my son. Most importantly because I love what I get to do. Not an office person at all. I love being free, outdoors, and able to take a breather in between work during the day.
 I have one more week left as a Behavior Interventionist working for a non-profit.  I'm happy to have had the chance to work with so many kids and help so many families for the past 9 years. Although I've grown so much as a person, it's time for a change!
Now I'm onto a new adventure working as an assistant/nanny for my best friend. It is a dream to be able to work with people you love, and to still be able to work with kids. I'll be able to focus more on my photography. I'm booking shoots with more people now, and loving it. I'll also be able to study for my teaching credential as well. My creative brain is doing somersaults as we speak!!!

Shot these pics on a late summer evening with my sister. I had been eyeing this backdrop for a long time. Glad I finally got to shoot here! Oh yeah and I took some shots of my sister as well, can't wait to share her style. Coming soon to the blog. 

These chambray pants are some of the most comfortable pants I own thus far. They are so light and fresh for the summer heat. Bought them a few months ago at Nordstrom Rack, one of my favortie places to get great clothes at awesome prices. Do you have a pair of comfy wide-leg pants? Are you into them?

Hello July!

Yay! In the middle of summer now and feeling good. I'm happy to report to you that I'm making some long awaited changes in my work life. Things are looking up, and I feel that it will be a great next half of the year. I can't say much because things are not final, but I'm super excited and greatful. Don't I look it here? 

They say change is good, I see it as a learning experience and a fresh start. Going with my gut has paid off so far and I won't stop listening to it from now on. Therefore, I encourage you all to follow yours, some call it intuition. Listen to it, because it's always there helping you along the way to leading a more abundant and fruitful life. What ever it is that you love, do it, go after it, seek it, and enjoy the journey every step of the way. No matter who or what tells you otherwise, follow your bliss!

Love Always,
