I have a new obsession in the form of Grey_Matters shoes. The shoes have a unique style and that famed Italian quality. I was particularly smitten with this pink pair and had my friends at Anthom ship me a pair as soon as I noticed them on their Instagram. They arrived yesterday morning. As you can see I wore them out immediately, pairing the booties with a dainty lace dress in the same hue.

One good thing about the torrential rain that California has had this winter is the amazing amount of flowers that it has produced. The hills in LA are green and covered in golden poppies and the flower market is overflowing with blooms. The best part is that it’s lilac season which means my house smells heavenly. I paired my lilac with fresh mint, because I think it’s a beautiful scent combination.

I started this blog when I was still at University of California at Santa Cruz, but soon after graduating I moved up to San Francisco where Sam was finishing up art school. San Francisco is when my blog and my career really took off. I modeled for NastyGal.com and tobi.com, interned at Chictopia.com, met some of my best friends, and generally had a wonderful time living in the city as a twenty year old. Every spot in SF is tied to an outfit. I can recall every single look I wore down to the random thrifted accessories I would pick up in the Mission on my way home after interning. I still remember the looks my best friend Nick and I would get on the Bart coming home from our days at NastyGal. I would still be in my full on camera ready makeup, while Nick in his styling assistant uniform consisting of a black vintage cape and black skinny jeans. It was a whirlwind of two years. There are so many San Francisco days and nights that I will never forget.  I’m happy this blog captured a few of those moments and even happier that there are many of you who have been there the beginning.

Road trip season is here and Sam and I have been getting Baby Blue ready for a few more adventurous excursions. Most recently, we took the van up to the family ranch in Santa Cruz by way of Carmel. Our new favorite place to stay is the Carmel Valley Ranch. The resort is nestled deep in Carmel Valley, surrounded by oak trees, wildlife, and wildflowers. The outside tub is perfect for relaxing and , because it’s dog friendly, of course we brought the whole fluffy squad.

Before heading out on a trip, and with a variety of new adventures on the horizon, I absolutely had to get my hair done. It’s my secret weapon to feeling my best while we travel.  My hair guru Alexis and I decided to go for an icy blonde hue. My hair takes about 7.5 hours to do and we have to put it through a lot to get the color I envision.

After getting my hair dyed I always take special care of it to keep it looking shiny and healthy. It was perfect timing since I’m now going to be an Herbal Essences brand ambassador so I can keep my hair looking healthy and feeling it’s best!

I was so excited to try their new line of shampoos and conditioners with the new bio:renew formula, a blend of signature natural ingredients that helps revive dull, lifeless hair.

I always love learning about the science behind the products I’m using so was thrilled to get the chance to speak to one of the actual chemists who worked on the bio:renew technology!

The first collection I tried from the new range was the Herbal Essences Argan Oil of Morocco Collection. It’s designed to repair hair and left mine feeling shiny and smooth. I’m excited to try the rest of the new collections which are all free of gluten, paraben and dyes. Plus I love the updated bottle design and refreshing new scents!

After 6 years away Sam and I finally made our way up to San Francisco. On our first day we decided to visit our old haunts. We visited our favorite restaurants like Cafe de la Presse, our old apartments, and walked through our old neighborhoods. So much has changed and yet so much has stayed exactly the same.  I always say I left my heart in San Francisco. The two years we spent living in the city will always be some of my favorite memories. I hope to one day find my way back to this beautiful, vibrant city.
