Doing my hair in NYC.

Doing my hair in NYC.

Sorry, not sorry for the overload of hair whipping pictures, but FINALLY!  We’re to the hair!  It feels like I have been waiting to share this forever!  If you follow me on Instagram, or even better, on Snapchat, you have seen bits and pieces of this already.  While in New York I had the pleasure of getting my hair done by THE hair color master, Carlina Ortega at Rita Hazan Salon.  Although I was only in New York for a short week, she was able to squeeze me in and give me the rainbow-unicorn-princess hair of my dreams!  And yes, it’s totally worthy of the title I just gave it because LOOK AT IT!   Carlina used a mint green, bubblegum pink, royal blue, and a bright yellow to add some fun into my soccer-mom-haircut, plain brown hair.  She also did an allover brown to give my hair a little boost of shine.  Et voilá!  Rainbow-unicorn-princess hair!  I literally can’t help but move and shake my head whenever I look in the mirror, or when I walk by a window… or when I look into my phone camera just to see my pretty hair… Don’t tell anyone about that last one.  You would do it too, I promise you.   If you live in New York or just happen to be visiting, I very highly suggest going to see her.  That is, I highly suggest you go see her if you want to be stuck looking in a mirror because you love your hair so much.   Seriously though…  P.S. Did you happen to notice that I am wearing...
Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

This REBEL wall!  And how perfect with this outfit?  I loved the blue wall as well, which was near the REBEL wall, for the detail shots.  I love when a wall just compliments the outfit so perfectly, it ends up making the entire shoot so much more fun.  It kind of set the mood for the whole thing, you know?  I was obviously on one because look at all of the faces!  I’m just so silly, I know.   The clothes though, let’s talk about those!  I was on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing while in New York.  Who am I kidding? I’m always on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing.  I was so in love with the idea of fringe on my pants and a little extra tassel (in a lot of a extra color), on my neck!  One bright blue & gold Poppy Lissiman choker comin’ right up!  I decided to keep the shirt black & white, to accentuate the choker, and gave extra pops with the red sunglasses and sneaky-sneaks.   These sneakers were such a go-to while running around the city.  So comfortable!  Plus, fringe is made for movin’ and shakin’, so you have to have comfy shoes to do just that.  Again, who am I kidding?  You have to have comfy shoes to do anything in my eyes.  Ain’t no body got time for heels!  Except for sometimes.  Alright, I’m talking myself into one massive hole here because we all know that if you hand me a cute heel, I’mma make it work.   Especially if they have tassels.    Top: The Fifth Label via BNKR // Shorts: Rachel Comey //...
Turning Summer into Fall.

Turning Summer into Fall.

  The chill in the air is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Although it is a force that is definitely not here yet in LA (and maybe it will never come our way), I know some of you are feeling it, especially as the sun starts to go down. I am not going to lie, I am a little jealous of you who are starting to feel fall, as the heat is starting to get to me over here. Sometimes you just want to wear a sweater, ya know? So this post goes out to you, all you non-Angelinos, who are taking on the chill full-steam ahead! Transitional dressing is some of the hardest for lots of reasons. What colors do you lean towards? Is it still okay to wear white? Are pretty florals out until the heat comes back? Is houndstooth okay for spring? Who cares about all of these rules anyway?  No worries, I’m here to tell you to do what you want! And I’m here to SHOW you how to do your summery dresses for fall. I know, you would be lost without me, so let’s get started… It all starts with that summery floral print dress that you so loved all summer. But why give it up now? You have to put it away for months on end just because it’s started to get a little chilly?   NO WAY!  The key is layering something nice and toasty over it, and pairing it with the right shoes for a fall touch.  I used the most playful, summery, spin-worthy dress  there ever has been and...
Topped with a Tomato.

Topped with a Tomato.

If you follow me on Instagram (which I am sure you do because why would you do that to me?), you saw that I went to a Tillamook Co-op event in Malibu.  Why Tillamook?  Because it sounded fun and mostly it sounded D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S. Well my friends, it was fun!  And more importantly, delicious doesn’t even begin to explain the treats we had!   From sour cream ice cream topped with tomato and balsamic vinaigrette,  to aged sharp cheddar, swiss, and Colby topped with wild spices and foraged seeds, everything was so YUMMY!  Even cooler, they actually had a professional forager (yes, that exists in Los Angeles of all places), tell us about some of the seeds and herbs available in the LA area.  Want to know my favorite thing that I learned?  All pine is edible!  Who knew?   Although the food was obviously amazing, the scenery wasn’t so bad either.  It was held at One Gun Ranch which sits high in Malibu and looks over the ocean and beautiful greenery.  Plus, there were animals!  Pigs and alpacas and horses and dogs and…. I’m sure there were more, that’s just all I can think of off of the top of my head.   All in all, I would consider this event a win.  Well… except for that it was one million degrees, but I think that was a bit out of their hands.   Photography by Eli Sims  ...
