A little bit of chaos in my life
"I'm a model, editor, blogger, a creative director—" I rattled off as though it was a to do list, as I walked quickly toward the laundry room door to head inside, it was so chilly after our shoot. Phoenix actually had a real winter this year and I was over it.
Back to Work + a New Blog Design
I've had a great break and maybe you've noticed some personal posts I've been publishing lately. Now that I've found the momentum to get back into it, it should make it much easier to integrate back with work - and now that I have a bag that fits my laptop and camera equipment, I may not have much of an excuse to not get back to work.
Feeling Golden this Holiday in Comfortable Ballet Flats
Did I ever tell you the time I wanted to be a ballerina when I was little? My mom came home with the beautiful shoes and I looked at them and was scared and I never actually took a class. I took gymnastics, but I quit before I could do a cartwheel because the challenge frightened me (I can do a cartwheel now by the way).
My Week Off + Home Expansion Framing is Done!
I decided to take last week off - an entire week! It's something I could do any time, but I wanted to give myself permission to not work especially with Christmas coming up. It is incredibly difficult for me to not work as I often feel as though working can be more productive than cleaning or organizing the house. The return on investment being in front of my computer is something I can see in my bank account, but then I had to realize (with Benjamin's help), I've done enough. I've worked hard enough, I've reached goals I didn't know I had, and if I didn't take some time off, I would feel like I didn't enjoy the holidays.
‘Tis the Season – 25 Holiday Gift Ideas
Last week was productive, and this week I'm kind of off. I say kind of because it's blocked off but the reality is a few campaigns landed in my inbox that I couldn't say no to, but really after this week, my editorial calendar is full. I had to find Mr. Wonderful an anniversary gift for our SEVENTH anniversary. It really feels like we got married not long ago, I mean our wedding in Sedona to me still looks timeless and very relevant (good job photographer Ryan Ray) also a perk to picking the right photographer!
Cactarium in Palm Springs
How was your Thanksgiving, Black Friday, rival football game weekend? My Thanksgiving was delicious as always since we started going to Benjamin's relatives and also get some goody leftovers to enjoy later that night and the next afternoon. We indulged heavily in Black Friday since we had lots of things to buy for the expansion and saved up, more on that in a second. The fact that the items I had been eyeing and saved on Pinterest, were all on sale, we just decided to buy buy buy! When you've been waiting for the right moment then Black Friday and Cyber Monday rolls around, oh boy! My team lost in the territorial cup, but I didn't watch the game since I was decorating the house for Christmas and Mr. Wonderful was hanging Christmas lights.

Hello loves, this is the weekend to get your shop on - have you noticed? I had placed a few online orders and when they arrived I saw that the items already went on sale before I had a chance to wear them! Luckily I was able to get a price adjustment. Remember when it was just Black Friday and then sales started even earlier like Thanksgiving night, I think the sales just keep getting earlier and earlier and I don't have much of a problem with that!
