Getting together with Haley is always a guaranteed adventure…and windy mess. Mama Nord is pretty much down for everything. So we spent the day lounging by the lake, kayaking, and taking some crazy, muddy, messy photos with the pup. Thank goodness these playdates wear him out. He was passed out in the back on my lap the entire ride home. After this session she took off and went to France, where her boyfriend (who helped us a ton this day) proposed in romantic Paris. He also did a stellar job on picking a ring. How amazing is that proposal story? Thanks you two for the help and playing with the puppy… I know he’s a handful sometimes. 😉
If you wanna shop any of the photos Ive left all the links at the bottom for you guys to check out.
I love brands that think outside the box and recreate our everyday needs in different ways. I think thats why I love Pandeia so much. They have totally reworked the way we wear watches. I’ve been lucky enough to work with this magical company for over a year now and the owner has become a close and personal friend of mine. Kelsi is all about giving. She has truly been one of my absolute favorite people to ever partner with. All the watches are handmade in the middle of the jungle in Maui… How rad is that? I’ll take her job any day! The lookbooks that we’ve worked on together are all up on the site. Go give it a look here!

I don’t know anyone in the world that doesn’t love this time of year. I truly think it brings out the best in everyone. It’s a time for gathering, for giving thanks to our friends, family, even strangers for all we do for one another. I find everyone is a lot more aware this time of year for everything they have.
I can’t count how many things I should be grateful for, there’s too many. I’m so thankful for the family I get to spend my life with… For the friends who are all so unbelievably talented and inspire me everyday… For the rewarding job I get to do. I’m so grateful to be able to be there for people, sometimes on the worst day of their life, and try to help make things a little easier on them and their families.
I really encourage everyone to count your blessings. Remember all of the beautiful things you have in your life. Appreciate them. Remind people how much they mean to you. Then try to remind them as often as you possibly can. Life is beautiful, but short. Make it count.
It’s a beautiful start to a new week! I hope you’re all enjoying the turn of the seasons we’ve had these last few days. While your switching out your dresses for sweaters, your under things remain the same. I adore Bootay Bag and how simple they make it to shop for undies. When you sign up for a subscription you get two pairs of underwear sent to your house with free shipping for $12 a mo. They’re incredibly cute and comfortable to boot.
Ladies you will thank me and so will the man in your life.
I’ve been away for quite sometime now. I hardly ever use my introduction to talk to everyone about what’s going on in my world so I thought I’d do that today. I’ve enjoyed a lot of traveling lately which has been so rewarding. It’s kept my wandering spirit happy and satisfied. I wanted to finish up my summer with a bang before all the studies and work were once again keeping me occupied. Now, fall is here and a new job is upon me. I’ve left my wonderful teams of bad ass babes at Free People, and the coffee shop and moved on to saving lives. It’s been a huge adjustment for me but I’m learning so much and extremely grateful. Don’t worry I’ll still be coming to you all with content and fun photo shoots as I have been for the last two years.
This shoot for the Free People Lou Campaign with Heather and Haley was nothing short of spectacular. These women are unbelievably talented! I wouldn’t believe it to be possible, but everytime I work with them they get better and better.
Who doesn’t want beautiful, smooth, and silky skin? I have a really hard time during the summer months keeping my skin not only hydrated but smooth as well. Before I tried out Bebe de Luxe I was a little skeptical. I wasn’t sure if the product would really make any difference on my skin let alone keeping my skin feeling amazing for days. I really can’t believe how wonderful the Coconut & Oat Milk Bath makes my skin feel for days and days after. Their products started out as a soothing bath for the little ones, but they soon started selling to babies, moms, dads… anyone and everyone. The baths are made out of 100% organic food-grade ingredients, vegan, and free of toxins so you can feel good about using them on your family. Shop Bebe de Luxe here.
