To celebrate my birthday a couple months back my boyfriend, Peter, and I planned a short city escape to the Mendocino Coast, a Northern California location I have always wanted to visit. It served as the most ideal destination for two overworked individuals in need of some fresh air and beautiful views without having to venture too far from home. We had the pleasure of visiting a few breathtaking inn’s along the Pacific cliffs, overlooking the ocean, while enjoying warm accommodations and a travel experience I am very excited to share. There are some serious treasures to [...]
I am 30 years old, technically homeless, and feeling astonishingly OK about the whole thing. I can either obsess about what I feel I should be doing (which is often times unattainable or unquestionably not what I want right now), or just go with the flow and do what feels right.
Smoking is an activity that I personally enjoy, oh so very much -- and I know I am not alone when it comes to this. But smoking cigarettes is frowned upon these days (for good reason) and most of the people I spend time with don't like being around it. C'est la vie. Ladies and gentlemen, I have found the solution… Say "hello" to JUUL -- a smart, simple, intensely satisfying vapor alternative designed for adult smokers that isn't at all obtrusive, by any means, as far as "e-cigs" go - I smell a lot [...]
Life doesn't have to match. We don't have to follow all the rules. Life doesn't have to be black and white, black or white, or any other color, for that matter. Life is just life. We don't have to define or categorize it. In fact, I don't think we should --trying to make sense of the unknown will only drive more confusion. This world we live in is confusing enough. Perhaps it's more logical to embrace what baffles us instead of running away all the time, turning a blind eye. I want to stop running away. I [...]
For the bold ones, the mavericks, and those who march to the beat of their own drum. We weren't built for subtlety, and we’ll leave this world a little different than it was when we got here — our stiletto footprint set in stone. We gracefully walk the tightrope of life like acrobats, and even when the strongest winds try and blow us off course, we keep our balance. We’re the daydreamers whose minds are constantly running, training for a race we’re destined to win. Known for our ambition, we’ll beat the odds. When told there’s something [...]
I wear my denim like I live my life. Flawed with a few tears, here and there. Worn in with stories to accompany the imperfections. "High wasted" was the go-to for most of my 20's. Sometimes I still shamefully opt for "intentionally distressed". I'm coming to accept that outgrowing certain styles isn't necessarily a bad thing... All of a sudden classic has this flattering and mysterious appeal. Comfort is appreciated, but rarely takes top priority, as far as decision-making goes. This, for me, may never change. Oh well. My collection is eclectic and interesting. I like it [...]
Never underestimate the satisfaction that accompanies slipping on a jammin' jumpsuit -- ONE AND DONE (reference here, here and here...see what I mean?!) I was talking to a friend about fashion and trends recently, something I rarely discuss these days because, well, I don't care that much. That being said , this conversation did encourage me to acknowledge that, while I may have adopted a liking for "lazy" attire, my lifestyle is anything but, and appearance does actually matter...at least a little bit. Am I curating cutting-edge outfits on a daily basis? No. But, fortunately, there are still stylish (and affordable) [...]
