Make My Heart Sing

November 2, 2017

It may seem I’m trying to ignore the fact it’s Fall by perusing in my undergarments when in fact, it’s actually the most comforting seasonal thing for me. Heater is on blast; I’m lounging in my knickers and favorite jeans; making some bougie, organic, all natural, seasonal latte.

Thank you Alex Kenealy for always capturing me at my leisurely best. I promise I’m not always this relaxed in my spare time.

It’s Me Again

October 19, 2016

My dear neglected blog,

You’ll have to excuse my extended absence and broken blog – a shot in the dark says it’s my longest hiatus thus far. Life has gotten the better of me. You might have seen me spellbound in, what I like to call, an “editing hole”. And as summer was closing in with two months blinking by, I panicked.

I created loads, shmoozed lots, brainstormed much, but there comes a point when you overload. Staring at a screen 14-18 hours a day caused me to detach from my mental in some sick, subconscious effort to subdue my emotional needs. Naturally, I took to the airport after daily vlogging. I’ve packed and unpacked my suitcase more times than I’ve popped aspirin during the presidential debates. I guess you can say I was in need of a personal season off.

Of course I’m being dramatic to say the least, but at least I’ve reflected. Thank god as I realized how tired I’ve grown of this industry we’ve formed – you guys know this. My charade ends here as I am excited to relaunch my blog in a way that makes sense to me. Now I can’t articulate this in any other way but to show you guys – once we slay the web development.

You will have to listen to my huffs and puffs on social and I promise to make a healthier effort with editing! With love I have attached a repeatable song – the kind of song that serendipitously fits into any life occasion. And photos of my mellow dramatic feels disguised in a backyard photoshoot.

Till then, see you babes on the ‘tube xx

Apartment Tour

March 21, 2016

This isn’t news but I’m going to pretend like it is. It’s my second LA apartment. The one-bedroom (originally sold to me as a 2 bedroom, but it ain’t) that will be my resident until I can afford to buy a home … it’s that good. Located in the lovely Larchmont neighborhood, I couldn’t ask for more from Los Angeles. There’s lots of natural light and greenery. It’s just really, really good vibes. And after 2 years, I feel like I’ve finally made it mine.

LIVING ROOM / DESK

I spend all my time here. The light literally spills in from morning till sunset. I also have a closet in the living room so that can make getting dressed a little odd.

I don’t know how my beauty products ended up being pink and purple in the medicine cabinet, but I’m not mad at it.

KITCHEN

Pretty basic. Has a door that goes to a side yard.

 
BEDROOM / CLOSET 

I have 3 closets in my apartment, and no way to organize it. Still working on it. Also, my bed. That Malm. I didn’t put it together right the first time so the bed squeaked every time you turned, and after a point, I took the bed apart. Now I feel like I sleep in a litter box.

Hope you enjoyed my little tour. Going to make myself some tea and Netflix xx

Wedding vibrations are strong this time of year and I couldn’t be more happy to celebrate my good friend Valerie and Seb’s marriage. I’m terribly bad at words right now since I’ve spent the last 16 hours editing the video for this, so instead of articulating the mood through this post, hit play.
