Desert Magic: Joshua Tree




Never did I think I'd fall in love with a landscape so stark. The desert has this quietness to it, a kind of magic you feel in the air. Cacti trees that have personalities of their own, rocks that make up imaginary creatures. Driving through Joshua Tree feels like exploring some foreign planet. My favorite places make me feel big and small all at once, your worries dissolve while your sense of belonging and oneness expands. An unexpected yet perfect escape.

I'm so happy I got to experience this beautiful place while I could. Because *tam tam tam tam* ((drum noises)) I'm moving to New York! Waa, I know crazy. I only just got to the West Coast and I love the ocean, nature, hikes... But here's the thing, I can always come back! Right now I'm young and it's time to explore. I'm reading this book called The Name of The Wind, it's a story about an anti-hero named Kvothe. As a kid, he's part of the Edema Ruh artist troupe when demons strike and he's left to fend for himself. Anyways, in this one part he says how Ruhs are not meant to stay in one place. That's how I feel about my life. In fact, I'm convinced I was a nomad in a past life. Moving around and experiencing new places and peoples makes me feel like the best version of myself. Happy, full of energy, inspired and in love with life.

Andrew, Astro kitty and I are hitting the road in a week!

Hiking in Malibu



Hiking is my absolute favorite to recharge on the weekends. I love it because 1. it forces me to put down the gadgets and be fully present and 2. it's an amazing & free workout. In LA we're spoiled with tons of hiking spots but I specially love Malibu. It's less than an hour away yet feels like a total getaway from the city. Nature all around you, sandy beaches, nothing but the sound of waves & fresh air blowing your hair... what's not to love? We started the day at Malibu State Creek Park which was covered in the prettiest blanket of yellow blooms, then drove across the mountains over to Point Dume. The winding roads slowly open up to the sparkling blue ocean and you start to feel a breeze coming in - sensory magic. We finished the day with the sun setting over the Pacific. Add a post-hike berry protein smoothie and it doesn't get much better than that.

The Last Summer Post


It's finally starting to get a little chilly in LA. Not proper midwest chilly, but just enough to pull off bare legs and a sweater. This post however, is not about that. This is about one of the last looks I shot before switching to semi-Fall mode. It's mainly about the top though. A flimsy piece of nothing I completely fell in love with. I think it was the simplicity of it all. Just some fabric held together by a couple of strings... and the way it moves when the wind catches it, that's pretty lovely too.
