October Birthday

  Last week we celebrated Drew’s Birthday by getting out of the city and into the wild.  We ventured to Angeles National Forest, which always feels far, far away from LA and the ocean, even though it is merely a two hour drive. Winding our way through the forgotten highway 2, we watch the terrain change so quickly.  We overlook a shrinking reservoir (California’s Drought crisis has now become a stunning visual locked in my mind’s eye) And even crossed paths with a wild tarantula, larger than any pet spiders I’ve seen. At the end of our day-of-discovery, our escape […]

The Start of Caturdays

Happy Saturday OR Caturday to all.  I would like to first begin this by introducing our feline love, JAX. Drew and I adopted Jax at the beginning of the summer after a few brief meetings.  He was a 6 year old cat that was de-clawed on all four paws (Not cool people) and surrendered because “He likes to be alone too much.” Jax has now been living with us for a few months, and we are still getting to know one another. I feel like there has already been some sort of a bond: He knows we are his humans. We […]

The always inspirational: LENA DUNHAM

SO, I just recently got into the amazing, watchable GIRLS on HBO.  And what have I been missing?  Needless to say, I started watching the show a couple of weeks ago, and although I didn’t binge watch, I did get through all three seasons pretty quickly. Now, I’m anxious for Season 4. Until that season premiere, Lena Dunham has given us the opportunity to dive a little deeper into her personal life with her upcoming book Not That Kind of Girl,  which I can only imagine is filled with her interesting humor and strange life anecdotes that are easy to apply […]

Finding Inspiration

Working as a creative is just as exciting as it is challenging.  More times than not, it seems like there is never enough time to finish a project, yet finding that initial push to get things going is sometimes the timekeeper that makes it difficult to begin a task.  So where do you start when you have no idea? Recently, I’ve been battling with a  sort of writer’s block that seems to be seeping into all of my other projects.  And that’s very frustrating.  But even more frustrating than that is knowing that all I need is to get on […]

Haircut, Look Change

You know how some days you just wake up, look in the mirror and think, “I need a change.”  Well, that happened to me yesterday.  I was going to shoot another set of head shots and while blow drying my hair I realized that there was nothing I could do, with my limited knowledge of hair styling techniques that would make my hair look better than the Blah that it is currently.  To me that says, “Bad Haircut” or “Out grown haircut.” I have long hair now. I’ve had long hair my whole life. Except for the year after I […]

First Post!

This is the first day of the rest of my life!  No, but really, I’m excited to be here.  I have been planning to do this for a while now, and I can’t wait to get to sharing the amazing ideas that I have. A little about this: My boyfriend and I love to travel, we own a cat, and occupy a space (2bdrm Apartment) in Mar Vista, Los Angeles.  I also feel the need to mention that my boyfriend is an awesome cook, and I love to eat, so great recipes are going to show up here from time […]
