*~*~ I SAID'A FLIP, FLOP ~*~*

peplum crop top- 8th and Main, shorts- Aritzia, sunnies- Karen Walker, socks & sandals- Nike

i went to the palm desert premium outlet yesterday and boy was that a mistake.
i'm soo over all those designer brands.

well... i ended up walking away with a pair of nike sandals & socks and a pair of Polo "chucks".
... comfort shoes.

on another note, i have 3 days left here to bask in the palm springs sunshine,
then i'm onto LA for a few days to stay with my lovely aunt.
bitter because i don't want to leave this heat.
but sweet because i look forward to LA and all the people i need to see!

We went out for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory last night.
we make it a tradition every year.
their cheesecake... i die.

it took us a solid 20 minutes to decide.
but eventually we settled for the tuxedo cheesecake.

CALI: Slab City || Salvation Mountain

i'm here.
"here" as in CALI here.
the weather today was juuust right.
we took on slab city which was quite a site to see.
it's basically an ex-military base that has now been turned into a sort of camping/living ground.
the area seems almost desolate- it was hard to tell if people were even living in those
campers/tents/huts... whatever was set up.
but in a way, it was so neat.
the way in which they live is so artistic. 
i saw a hut made of straw, an outside library, half of a camper, a tree covered with hanging shoes...
and then on the way back we stopped at salvation mountain.
WOW.
one man spent manyyyy dedicated years to painting/creating this grand piece of art.
i'd seen this "mountain" before in photos but to actually get up close was a treat.

i'm hoping tomorrow will be nice.
i'd like to start working on my tan.

"Shore thing"... ;)

wool coat & tartan scarf- Zara, drop crotch pants- JNBY, tunic & flats- Oak + Fort, NY Yankees cap (Matt's)

styled and modelled by myself
photos by: Matt Bourne


Yesterday's shoot with Matt involved COLD (as) feet, yummy hot drinks, far too many birds, friendly strangers, DOGS, a beautiful view and sunset
 and feeling like a ninja due to rock climbing and running up walls... what??..
ya.
if you look closely at some of these photos you'll notice i'm "casually" crouched on a slanted wall/ramp and hanging on by my toesies
matt was also doing a climbing and balancing act himself.
but man, we had a lot'a fun.

we JUST caught the sun as it was setting.
 i really hope i never get tired of these "cotton candy" sunsets.
the sky against the water was... ugh.
i live for these moments... lol.
BUT REALLY YOU GUYS!
really.

anyhow...
i've wore out the 'ol... new coat a ton this week.
it's warm (oh hello, it's wool), it goes with everything i throw on and it's got the length!
and then, of course, i have the nerve to do some "light" shopping after yesterday's photos.
i find ANOTHER amazing, black coat.
I KNOW, i know. 
you ask:
"don't you own enough coats?"

ya know what...
"as long as i make real good use of them", i say.

(actually i don't think i've ever said that?...)



Well. 
i hope everyone's having a terrific start to their new year!
anybody have any exciting plans for this year??
i have a couple possible ones up my sleeve ;)

Well if there's one thing to look forward to...

 wool coat & zipper bucket bag- Zara, denim- J Brand, flats- Oak + Fort

After lazing about at home for the past 3 days 
(the 3rd day bedridden due to being under the weather)
i made the trek outta my house to work.
it was refreshing to get changed out of at-home-slob clothing and actually make myself look decent
but being around in a mall made me suddenly remember why home is such a wonderful place

but hey. 
can't complain.
i'll be in cali in 2 days!!
that's something to smile about :)

Ann's Fitness Photo Shoot! || + Behind the Scenes!

This is my beautiful friend, Ann.
This is the fitness photo shoot that I worked on with her and Lauren Nicole Foot (for Wing + Harrow) back in October.

I had the honor of styling her as well as doing her hair/make-up.
Being apart of this shoot was such fun and incredibly inspiring.
I'm already looking forward to our next shoot together ;)


Feel free to watch the "Behind the Scenes" of the photoshoot below :)
