Lately, I've been on a serious minimalist kick. I purged my entire house and now I'm moving on to purging my backpack, starting with my wallet. I think my wallet alone weighs a pound. I have every card imaginable in there, as well as a ton of change, bits of paper, all sorts of stuff. It has some great features, but it doesn't fit nicely into most of my purses, and hence, I think it's time for a change. Spring cleaning, right? Enter the Square Wallet from Baggu for $100. It comes in a bunch of colors, and I can't decide which one I like the best, but this pink version is pretty sweet. This is bare bones basic, but well worth it if you want to keep things simple.
I love checking out what my local stores are currently carrying. Always best to support local, right? When I happened upon the Cameron Marks website the other day, I found this beauty of a top from Ulla Johnson. It's made of silk, has white swiss dots, and is sweet without being too sweet. Perfect for spring and summer. Find it here.
These images are part II from a photo shoot that I recently did with up-and-coming San Francisco photographer, Kate Struthers (find her @katestruthers_ on Instagram). We ventured out to the Baylands on the Peninsula in the Bay Area and Kate shot these digital images.
The photos feature two of my favorite colors: blue and rust. Together, they create a perfect color palette.
Recently, I had the great pleasure of shooting some photos with up-and-coming San Francisco photographer Kate Struthers. (Find her @katestruthers_ on Instagram.) Today, I'm featuring Kate's shoot that she did on film, and on Friday, I'll feature her digital images from the same shoot.
We went out to the Baylands in the Peninsula area on an overcast day and Kate designed these images that represent me so well: they offer a fresh, modern take on classic style, featuring my new dress that I picked up in Paris from Des Petits Hauts. (Outfit details below).
I've been looking for my dream hair products for years. But nothing ever quite worked for me. I couldn't seem to moisturize my curls as well as deal with my fine hair. It was a bummer scenario for way too long. But then, during a recent appointment at Salon on the Square in Santa Cruz, I discovered Kevin Murphy's products. Everyone was raving about the line and I finally gave it a try, and I'll never turn back. (I'll write at a later date about the incredible curly hair styling product that I discovered.)
The Hydrate Me Wash and Rinse (conditioner) are remarkable. They cut down on frizz, moisturize without weighing hair down (this is huge!), and leave your hair feeling soft, manageable, and the prettiest it's ever been.
