Had an awesome shoot last week with the very talented Jim Newberry.

We took some cool studio portraits, and also shot a few outside on this beautiful stairwell in Highland Park.

I was quite amazed by the location. It didn’t feel like I was in L.A.- another reminder of how lucky I am to live in this great city; constantly discovering new nooks.

I’ve had a lot of appreciation for Los Angeles lately. I’ve met some incredible people over the past year; experienced changes that I would have never expected; and have had this general feeling of excitement that I can’t quite explain.

It’s good. I’m rolling with it.

$20 L A

I think it’s a big misconception that in order to have fun in L A you have to spend a lot of money.

On any given day there’s a free museum to check out; great bands playing small venues; beautiful mountains and beaches to explore; and a wide variety of exciting food that won’t break the bank (hello food trucks!). We really can’t complain.

A couple weeks ago I decided to test my theory and see what I could do for under $20. That’s not to say I only spent $20 in one day, but rather I experimented with what $20 might get me; what experiences I could have in an afternoon when sticking to a strict budget.

The outcome was encouraging- art, food, shopping, and even a cocktail at the end of the day.

Check it out.

I Scream, You Scream

Hands down the closest thing I’ve ever had to the “real” deal. As an ice cream enthusiast with a dairy allergy, this is a pretty exciting discovery. I’ve only been able to find the Cinnamon Coffee and Blackberry Honey flavors here in L A, but I’m dying to try their Salty Caramel and Scotch Chocolate- also part of  Steve’s “Non-Dairy Collection”. If you don’t have any allergies, I heard the Bourbon Vanilla is out of control.

Who am I kidding? All their flavors sound ridiculous.

Looks like a sweet summer ahead…

The video is also pretty beautiful.

Worth checking out.

Enjoy.

Shoe Stories

A few weeks ago I was working on a project that had me researching the definition for “stiletto“. What surprised me was when I typed in the word,  it wasn’t the popular women’s shoe that came up, but rather a description for a knife or dagger. I guess those heels really are weapons.

This triggered me to remember an article that my friend sent me a while ago. It was about an artist, Sebastian Errazuriz, who designed twelve pairs of shoes to represent some of his past relationships. With each sculpture, he included a short anecdote about the girl who inspired the design. All of them crazy, unique, and kind of beautiful.
