Beating the Monday blues.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Lately I’ve been living for the weekend since that is when I have time to explore and relax. Today I told myself that I would learn to appreciate everyday and make the weekdays a little more exciting. Whether it’s dinner with a friend or a game night, give yourself a few treats along the way to make working full time a bit more bearable. I hope your Monday isn’t too blue!

P.S. I love you.

A message to my true love: travel. This is perhaps one of my favorite pictures ever (do I say that often? Oops.) I have come to terms with my gypsy soul and its unquenchable thirst for exploring. I could have a lot more money in my savings account but I sure as hell wouldn’t be as happy. The world feels like a source of endless possibilities waiting to be explored. So this Valentines Day I am happy to be taking yet another trip and sharing the holiday with one of the cities I love most! Keep posted for which one it is, hehe.

So fresh and so clean.

Captured this simple shot near the AirBnb we stayed in, in the Nob Hill area of San Francisco. It was on the cutest street with a Trader Joes on the corner, talk about the dream home for D. The iconic SF architecture provided such a great backdrop for these pictures, I just couldn’t resist taking the ol’ Canon out. The clean colors and simplicity of it bring me so much joy.

Mali-boos. 

Flew to Southern California to collaborate with my beautiful cousin (pictured above) and have a photo shoot with some friends. The results were beyond glorious and I will be sharing them in a series.

My cousin is an incredible makeup artist and not to mention a ray of sunshine. I am thankful to have her by my side as we grow in our creative careers. Team work makes the dream work, baby! Follow her work here!

Where’s the Del Playa?

Many of my fondest college memories were formed here, on this dysfunctional street named Del Playa in Isla Vista. There is no place quite like it and despite its flaws, it is a wonderful place. You have not lived until you’re watching the sunset surrounded by the ones you love, music blasting, not a care in the world. I remember this day specifically; I sat here in this moment and took it all in. Wondering how I got so lucky. Now here I am today, still wondering the same thing. #Ole
