My First Airbnb Experience

Posted on Location: 1 m read

Just a little over a week ago, David and I had our first ever Airbnb experience together. For past travels, we’ve either just stayed at a hotel or crashed at a friend or family member’s house. We had such a great time, and expectations were more than met. At the last minute, we decided we wanted to go to NYC before the Palm Springs airport stopped doing direct flights to New York in the summer. Unfortunately, hotel prices were already going up. I didn’t want to settle for a mediocre or less-than-mediocre hotel, so I resorted to browsing through Airbnb listings. Best decision ever — since I was able to find the cutest little abode for our 4-night stay without breaking the bank!

My Favorite Apps for Curating the Perfect Instagram Feed

Posted on 44 Comments

I’ve learned over the many years of blogging that curating an Instagram feed to reflect your personality and a certain theme takes a lot of meticulous work and dedication! Achieving consistency is another story, and something I’m still working on these days. While I have my ups and downs, I think I’ve finally found a style that speaks to me. Using certain phone applications have helped make planning and creating consistent content much easier. Since I get so many questions about photography and the tools I use to create my content, I’ll start by sharing which phone apps I use often!

Why You Should Try Witch Hazel as a Facial Toner

This year, I started incorporating witch hazel into my everyday beauty routine. As a skincare fanatic constantly trying new products daily, I was astounded to learn that a guy friend of mine (who isn’t gay by the way) knew of this holy grail product that I had been living years without! Now, I can’t imagine getting through the day without using it. Honestly, I don’t even know how we got onto the topic, but we started talking about our skincare regimen and this casually came up in conversation. I am so glad it did!

Fun Ways to Incorporate Splashes of Color Into Your Everyday Outfit

Posted on Location: 1 m read

I have always lived in a world of color when it comes to my wardrobe, and especially more so since moving to Palm Springs. Often times, people are afraid to wear colors out of their comfort zone because they think it might look odd. When styled the right way though, just about any color can look chic. If you’re looking to incorporate splashes of color in your outfits this spring and summer, here are some pointers to help you get started!

New York Packing Essentials

Posted on 58 Comments

It’s hard to believe that I’ll be headed off to New York in just a few days! I’m excited to start traveling again but will definitely miss the warm weather in Palm Springs. As you might imagine, I don’t really have much in my closet that’ll allow me to survive in frigid temperatures. For the past month, I’ve been frantically shopping for an all-new wardrobe just for this trip. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much luck finding winter weather clothing because stores here have already moved on to their Spring collections. At this point, I figure worst comes to worst, I’ll pick up what I need when I get there… but the anxiety of not being fully prepared sucks. But hey, an excuse to go shopping in New York, right? πŸ˜‰

Trendy Sunglasses You Need this Festival Season

Posted on 44 Comments

It’s that time of year again – festival season is upon us! While I won’t be attending any this year, I know how essential it is to have a variety of sunglasses on hand. The blaring sun is no joke out in the desert, and even when it’s cloudy out, I feel the need to wear sunnies to protect my eyes. If you’re still putting your festival outfits together in time for Coachella or Stagecoach, don’t forget to add a few of these trendy spectacles for elevated style and of course, sun protection.

One Year in Palm Springs

Posted on Location: 3 m read

After graduating from UCSD, I moved around a lot. I stayed in San Diego for a bit where I met my now-partner, and then moved to LA to pursue modeling. Stuck around for two years, and went back and forth between my tiny room and David’s spacious condo in San Diego once we started dating. The third and final year in LA, David moved and we got our first apartment together.Β Fast forward to 2018… Facebook reminded me not long ago that it’s been one amazing year in good ol’ Palm Springs!

Spring Cleaning with Poshmark

***Special thanks to Poshmark for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

Annual Spring cleaning has begun at home and it feels so good to clear and organize everything. I like to start with my wardrobe because I tend to accumulate a ton of clothes that I forget even existed after a certain point. For years, I’ve been using Poshmark to downsize & update my wardrobe. If you’re looking to clear up some space while making some extra cash for items that are just sitting around in your (and even your significant other’s) closet, I definitely recommend giving Poshmark a try.

The Maxi Dress: A California Girl’s Wardrobe Staple

Posted on Location: 4 m read

A couple weeks ago, my two lovely friends Jenn of Jubilant Dose and Yuena of Simply Yue came to visit me all the way from New York. One of the things they quickly noticed about me was that all I ever wear is maxi dresses! To be completely honest, this is an observation that I only noticed after it was pointed out to me. It wasn’t until then, did I realize that a majority of my wardrobe consists of… you guessed it, maxis!

A Rare Snow Day

Posted on 48 Comments

Two weeks ago, it got cold enough for the mountains of Idyllwild to be completely covered in snow! I know that this might not sound like a big deal for some of you… but when you’re living somewhere where the temperatures typically don’t dip below 65 degrees out during the day, I’d say that snowfall is quite a treat!Β Believe it or not, this snowy retreat is just a little over an hour away from where we live in sunny Palm Springs. David and I took a day trip up to Idyllwild with the dogs and it was Rolly’s first time experiencing snow. It was pure delight!

Lip service please! Chapped lips is an issue I’ve dealt with for longer than I can remember.

With that said, I knew I had to quickly find products that would not only heal, but also hydrate my lips, and keep them healthy overall.Β If this sounds like a problem you deal with regularly, you’re in luck because I’ve done all the experimenting for you.
