ALASKA PHOTO DIARY



Last weekend, Eric and I took an impromptu trip to Alaska. We found a great flight deal, knew we wanted to get away from the LA heat, and packed our bags for a 3 day weekend. Instead of my usual Photo Diary where I take you day by day through our trip, for this one I decided to just list out the important pieces of info you might need if you're planning your own Alaska vacation. Where to stay, where to eat, what to see, and a few examples of how I packed. Scroll down for the full story!

FALL KNITWEAR WITH MARGARET O'LEARY



Alaska is called "the last frontier", and in many ways it's a true description. So much of the land feels untouched and beautiful in its isolation. I had traveled to Alaska once before, almost a decade ago, and have spent the years since dreaming of returning. It may be summer in LA, but up in Alaska there's already a chill in the air, hinting at the approaching cold. I packed up some of my favorite Margaret O'Leary knitwear to shoot along the coastline while exploring, so scroll down to see the photos.

LES FEMMES



Summer in LA has started heating up, so finding easy cotton pieces to combat the temperatures is key. And when I began my hunt for a pretty Summery dress, I found the online shop - Les Femmes. Not only was everything curated exactly to my taste (the logo alone is perfection), but it helped break me of a very bad habit that online shopping has given me.

PROVENCE PHOTO DIARY



Rolling hills, fields of lavender and sunflowers, a balloon ride as the sun slowly lights up the morning sky - these are the memories I brought home from this months incredible trip to Provence with L'Occitane. In all honesty, it felt more like something out of a dream than a vacation, with each day prettier than the last.

EVERYDAY LIP COLOR


Since my last post focused on a question I'm often asked (how do I edit my photos), I figured I'd take this time to answer another commonly asked question : "What lip color are you wearing?". And while many makeup-loving ladies would have a hard time narrowing down a list of their lip color choices, I tend to be on the more basic side, and gravitate towards just 3 different shades.

HOW I EDIT MY PHOTOS



One of the questions I get asked most often is how I edit my photos. And while I am by NO means an expert, below is the method that I've developed that helps my feed look consistent, and gives the vibe that I want. I've posted on this subject previously, but decided it was time for an update, as some of my methods have changed in the last year.

FARFETCH AFTERNOON IN LA



Last week I had the opportunity to partner up with one of my favorite shopping sites, Farfetch, for a magical day in my own city. I've lived in LA for a while, and thought I had been just about everywhere, but we went to some real hidden gems during the day. The day began at a boutique called Just One Eye where I picked up my new favorite mules (they're by Robert Clergerie and soo fun) and after that we headed to the very magical rooftop of Petit Ermitage for tea.
