Paris Part Deux: Palace of Versailles

Versailles, Versailles, Versailles…beauty like no other.

While I was in school for interior designer and during my ballet classes I learned so much about Versailles that I just hold it very dearly to my heart. I remember vividly watching the ballet documentary and them bringing up Louis XIV, ballet enthusiast.. Versailles holds my biggest passions that make me, me.

I will say it is quite overwhelming being there with the crowds and just all the detail within itself. Loved seeing that they tried doing a faux finish for some of the door moldings && was amazed by all the upholstered wall coverings. The colors for some of the rooms are so bold it and daring.

Such an amazing experience I hope you enjoy my images..

Paris Diaries Part Une.

I went to PARIS!!! My blog has been in need of some serious TLC, so here it is! It is safe to say I did NOT get enough pictures of the Eiffel Tower. Paris was absolutely stunning and everything I ate was delicious, because lets be honest food is everything(especially when really excited…might just be me).

We (my sister and I) stayed in a little flat in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, loved loved loved that little neighborhood it was everything it had everything. When you think of Paris you’re thinking of Saint- Germain, from the shops to restaurants it’s all a stroll away.

This is one of three posts about Paris, might get into detail but meh I’m still in Aw just looking at these images. Please enjoy the beauty.

Tuna Canyon

Tuna Canyon , is by far the most beautiful hike EVER (you’ll hear this from me quite often) I headed out with my friend Nadia and my dog Anya on a Saturday. The day was gorgeous clear skies there were sooo many sailboats out that day. We weren’t exactly sure where we were hiking to specifically we were just exploring the area and enjoying the view to the max.

One super scary thing that happened was that my dog was attacked by two other dogs, I guess the owner couldn’t control them and one wouldn’t let go of her neck. Not much damage was done since my dog didn’t move until he decided to let go of her.

Overall it was a very magical experience and I recommend it to anyone. According to the website it’s not visited much which I will agree, to me that’s the charm of it the peacefulness is felt from the moment you start walking.

Welp 2014

2014, I will have to say got the ball rolling on my life and reality. Definitely dated my girlfriends, I spent the year saying I wanted to be single but hating it every other day until it was time to reminisce over the year only to realize it was pretty fucking amazing thanks to them. I hiked sooooo much, and it wasn’t until the end of the year (solstice hike to be exact) that I realized how much I really loved it and loved life a little more for allowing us to witness its beauty.

There are some lessons I needed to learn to allow me to both understand and grow from. I quit my job before the new year which was something that needed to be done. Have you ever felt like you needed to be so uncomfortable to be able to grow? Because that’s exactly what that felt like. I am not 100% sure where I will end up going but I know I trust the universe to get me there, and I know it will be better it always is.

2015 I have so much faith and love and I am ready to be adventurous. I will be traveling to Paris, Belgium, and London in March which is extremely exciting. There are new hikes to explore and mini road trips I would like to take. I am coming for you.

Thanksgiving Break.

 Thanksgiving morning I headed out with my pups Anya to the Wisdom Tree (locatedby Lake Hollywood), this hike is by far one of my favorites EVER! Going there was the best decision. It was soooo soothing and tranquil. Everyone out that morning was sweet and happy, Holidays do that to people I guess. Being on top of this mountain made me realize how much I appreciate nature bright blue skies and greens what more could I ask for?

Solstice Canyon, Malibu 

Hiking near the beach has been on my to do list for quite sometime now. I started searching a couple of places found Solstice Canyon and decided to give it a try. My friend Blanca joined me on this LOVELY adventure of not knowing where the fuck we were going.. I have always enjoyed getting lost, there is nothing better than to be lost! You  forcefully remember where you’ve already been. Safe to say I will be giving this another try, it was so beautiful can’t even imagine how amazing it will be in the summer time.

Sneaky Sneakers.

For the past two years I’ve been obsessing over high tops sneakers, it started with Pinterest (my inspiration haven) I saw these Nike Blazers Leather Black and White *insert heart eye emoji*. They looked so classic and an upgrade from Hightop Converse, love at first sight for sure. Anyways, I purchased these black Vans “Hadley” and didn’t know what to do with them. Typical ol me buying things only to figure out how to style them to fit ME, safe to say now I have 4 pairs of sneakers ANDD still trying to figure it out.

Sneaky Sneakers

Loving the classics: Nike, Vans, and Converse are classics that will always be in style. These are the same but different, all three have a different feel and will look completely different which is what I like about them.

           Dresses for Sneakers

Flowy dresses are thee best, they’re comfortable and  easy to wear you can dress them up with a statement necklace add some heels BOOM! night outfit. Dressing them down to run errands and put some sneakers on,  easy breezy. If you are looking for an edgy look the vest dress is the way to go. I’m really excited to pull out my dresses that will go with my sneakers.

Red Glitz

Boyfriend Jeans and sneakers + a statement top, hello chic central. I love this combination everything about it is just perfection to me.

So here you have my inspirations for my sneakers!

October BABY!

My personal New Year is coming up (AKA MY BIRFFDAY!) I am beyond ecstatic it is “Fall”.. Los Angeles clearly didn’t get the memo though. Been meaning to post about my Fall Staples, but we keep getting heat waves kinda figured I had sometime. I’ve collected jackets since last winter that I didn’t quite get to enjoy, can’t wait for it to cool the eff down so I can wear them. I can’t even  begin to explain how much I love this season.. there’s this feeling I get when I look to the west… (that was a little Led Zeppelin,  FIY)

On a serious note, the giddiness that comes with wanting to make changes and all the exciting things there are to do in October, can’t help to just enjoy the season and wear comfy clothes. Summer and the beach getaways are always fun but FUCK when it’s 10pm and it’s 90 degrees, please bounce I like my breeze at night.

So far I’ve purchased a couple of “must haves” staples, I don’t exactly have a category for my style never have don’t think I ever will. Mixing up styles has always been the way I design, even when it comes to Interiors. Below are a couple of my staples and my inspiration board!

Cloud Art.

One of my ultimate LA things to do is HIKING! My mom has been taking my siblings and I since I could remember. Growing up and living walking distance to  Griffith Park has a lot to do with it, but now I’ve expanded my horizon and found new places. Sunrise and Sunset hikes are fucking magical and that’s all anyone needs to know. Being on top of a mountain as the colors in the sky change there is nothing better than that…except food and other things but this is definitely on top of that list for me.

Please enjoy my collection for 2014.
