• Search History Pt 2

    A few years ago, I shared what was on my search history. Here’s round 2: What does THOT mean (it means That Ho Over There) Pink clouds in the air (next painting inspo) Is there an app to control a Keynote (searched that right before a speaking gig) She’s The Man quotes How much did Broderick

  • The Beauty in Others

    I’ve been taking photos of other people for over a decade. My portrait sessions have allowed me to meet so many new people. I’ve shot some of my best work during these moments. It’s a thrill to experience the perfect light, find that amazing angle and create an image that really seems to capture someone’s soul and personality. I’ll get goosebumps during

  • A Little Update

    It’s been a hard few weeks hasn’t it? The loss of life has been felt throughout the world, here in my country and among my tighter circle of friends. While it certainly puts things into perspective, it also leaves me feeling very unclear. Very sad. More bold. Still confused. Lately I’ve been hosting events and friends

  • Back to Film

    [An epic Bloody Mary, a visit from the Newsom duo, a visit back home, a portrait of Meghan, studio vibes and Wilson the pup] I’m back to shooting film (I believe this was a roll of Kodak Ektar…my favorite!) but now I have to wait a full week for each roll to get developed. It

  • The Shopping Cure

    I go shopping every year on my birthday. I buy a lot of clothes. The next year, I hate all my clothes and I repeat. It’s a bad habit and it stopped this year! It went down like this: Adam: You should buy new AG jeans this year for your birthday! Me: Oh yeah! That’d

  • The Year of Habits

    I’ve decided that this year is the year of forming habits. I turn 29 years old in four days so it seems fitting. I’ve been on the candida diet for 118 days now and I’ve been painting every day for the past 17 days. When #the100dayproject is over on July 27, what will I choose

  • Products That I Use Daily

    I’ve had this blog since 2009. It’s transformed a lot. From a place where I started sharing my design work to a place where I introduced advertisers (that was the worst)…and I’ve simplified it yet again. I am designing + taking photos every single day and I needed to stretch another muscle: writing and sharing.

  • Habits

    We’re 60 days into 2016. For me, the year has been about creating and kicking habits. Doing things every day until it becomes second nature. Here are a few ways I’ve changed: I cook every meal at home since being on the candida diet. And yes! I am so anti-social! I need to start hosting

  • On Beauty

    I listened to a TED Radio Hour podcast on Sunday while I was driving with my sister. It was about beauty and brought up the idea that maybe there are beautiful things in this world so we don’t destroy it all. I can’t stop thinking about it. Interestingly enough, I feel like I avoid creating beautiful

  • Desperately Seeking Hobbies

    I haven’t blogged in over three months. That might be the longest stretch yet! A lot has happened since my last post (we’ll expand on that later and no…I’m not pregnant) but for now, I thought I’d share about my newest adventure. I’m earnestly seeking a hobby. Or three. Rewind about two decades and you’d

  • What’s In My Bag

    This is the most typical post of the blogging world. But IDGAF. I always think it’s interesting to see what’s in people’s houses, purses + studios. Who doesn’t? I bought this backpack at Nordstrom Rack earlier this year because I hate carrying all the weight on one shoulder. It’s big enough to carry my large
