One of my ultimate go-to gifts is always flowers. When I’m attending a dinner party or a holiday get together hosted at a friend’s house, I like to bring a custom bouquet in a brand new vase. I leave the vase behind as a thank you gift for the host. Candles and champagne also make for quick and easy gifts, but it is when I bring the flowers that I receive the most smiles. Pro Tip: If you don’t have time to pick up blooms from a specialty flower shop, stop by a grocery store but skip the pre-made bouquets and pick up a dozen of roses, tulips or whatever else is in the store as well some simple filler green to create your own arrangement.

Also, let’s take a quick moment and acknowledge how great it is that

Happy Flower Friday!

I’ve been eyeing this Tibi set for weeks, but  It’s going to make for the perfect outfit to wear on Christmas Eve. Double the love because I can’t wait to wear the skirt with a cozy sweater for Christmas Day.

For the last two weeks Sam and I have been working on a secret project. I’m excited to finally tell you all about it. Today is the soft opening of our pop up art gallery and flower shop, Escape LA. It coincides with Refinery 29’s 29 Rooms exhibit taking place at ROW DTLA. We will be open every day 12:00-7:00pm and are having an opening reception this Saturday 6:00-9:00pm. If you’re going to the R29 exhibit or just want to come by and say hi, we’re located in suite 132 in the ROW DTLA campus. We’ll have free Prosecco by Stella Rosa, puppies, flowers and art curated by two of my favorite artists. I hope you stop by, I’ll even teach you how to make flower crowns or floral ornaments if you’re so inclined.

How many of you have been with me long enough to remember my days of modeling at NastyGal? It was years ago when the blog was only a year old, NastyGal was a team of 6 people, and we were living in San Francisco. Sophia scouted me through my blog and for the next year I was a regular NastyGal, shooting twice a week. I look back on those day with immense fondness. I remember when Stacey the stylist, Paul the photographer, Nick the styling assistant and I the model would take the Bart back into the city after a full day of shooting. We all wore black, lots of leather, and were asked if we were in a band almost once a week. The days were long but always filled with tears-in-your-eyes laughter.

When I saw this tinsel fringed vegan leather jacket, it instantly took me back to my NastyGal days. I saw myself twirling in it, I heard Paul telling me to drop my chin and look left. I could feel Stacy and Nick eyeing me up and down, debating whether to add a leather glove or a statement ring. I could see Sophia peering out of her office ready to restyle the entire look, a perfectionist in ripped up band tees and Alexander Wang boots.  It was exhilarating, exhausting, and unforgettable.

Is there a time in your life that you look back at and almost wish you could go back?

I spent my whole life dreaming of visiting the South of France. I dreamt of picking fresh fruit and olives barefoot, lounging under fig trees and driving down to the Mediterranean to escape the summer heat. It always seemed like a place I’d fall in love with.This summer Sam and I finally had the chance to fulfill my travel dream when we took a road trip starting in Paris and ending in Saint Tropez. The entire experience was truly transformative and exactly as dreamy as I imagined. I can’t wait to go back and dream of spending an entire summer in Provence. In the meantime I’ve been filling my home and my life with reminders of our trip. Even my gifts are infused with these touches courtesy of LOccitane and their beautiful gift sets. This season LOccitane has partnered with UNICEF to donate $4 from the sale of each Shea Butter Collection or Shea Butter Deluxe Collection gift sets to help thousands of children around the world. What better way to celebrate the holidays than with beautiful gifts and beautiful intentions.
