Desert Dreams

4am.

That’s truly the golden hour.

Waking up for my trip to Palm desert was something like Christmas…with all the butterflies, expectation, and crazy nervous energy you get before opening a pile of presents. But instead of ripping the paper off of Christmas goodies, I got to drive to the desert with all the colors of the most glorious magenta and lemon colored sunrise, stopping in the middle of the desert for one of the most magical photo shoots ever, with the amazing girls from thetwophotography. Check out more of their beautiful work here!

All that glitters is not gold

1 roses

 Fall is finally here…well kindov. This SoCal weather has been beyond amazing, and I’ve spent the last two days soaking up 85 degree beach days. But a girl can still crave rich fall hues and festive holiday glitter. This week, I’m in love with deep berry lips and shining gold makeup. These two Fall staples scream royalty…so rule your own little berry and gold kingdom.

Is there anything better than getting a manicure? Suddenly, you want every excuse in the world to look at your beautiful and glistening nails….picking up a coffee mug, typing at the computer, even driving turns into a lavish and enjoyable ordeal. For summer, I love pairing bright colors and (of course) glitter.

I love everything about tattoos, especially little delicate ones in hidden places. It’s a secret all your own, with its own special meaning, yet they can connect you to others in ways you never knew existed. I have a small clover on my inner wrist, but am in the market for another little gem. Here are some inspirations for my next little secret. xo

Miss Kate Moss

If anything can get you through a Monday after a long weekend of friends, beach, and a wee bit too much wine, it’s Kate Moss. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, she is obsession worthy; there’s just something absolutely unreal about her aura.  She inspires a coolness, an innocence, and a power all her own. Ladies and gentlemen….Miss Kate Moss.

A Fine Line: Perfecting the Brow

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” -Audrey Hepburn

So what then for beautiful eyebrows? I’m a huge fan of natural and full eyebrows; there’s a bit of old world glamour of the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, and Brigitte Bardot. But this trend has transcended into the realm of young Hollywood, where actresses like Camilla Belle, Lily Collins, and Emma Watson sport their natural brows with pride.
