This weekend, Thomas and I are heading up to Julian for a weekend camping trip. We have been saying for quite some time that we should go camping and we are finally doing it! So today, before we take off, I thought I would share some of my fashion inspiration for the trip!


Lavender Lemonade

Healthy vegan lavender lemonade recipeToday I’m sharing my recipe for lavender lemonade which has quickly become a favorite for myself and Thomas. We’ve made it two weekends in a row and it certainly doesn’t last very long in the fridge because it’s so refreshing! The lavender is really what makes this a standout. If you have any upcoming summer parties or even just want a poolside refreshment, try making it!


Bohemian Summer

Golden hour at Harbor IslandA bit past Point Loma lies Harbor Island, a strip of rocky terrain along the Port of San Diego. The view was incredible, the water glimmered against the San Diego skyline. We both were in awe of the gorgeous view and most of all, couldn’t believe we had missing out on Harbor Island’s beauty for so long.


Girls in Lace Dresses

Fun photoshoot idea with friends

On Wednesday evening, my close girlfriends and I got together for a fun and feminine photoshoot in the park. The lighting was perfect at golden hour and we had the best time! We brought along some healthy picnic snacks (along with some indulgent treats) as well so we could feast afterwards!


Tofu Lettuce Cups

Vegans Do Thai Food: Mango Sticky Rice

Vegan Gluten-Free Thai Mango Sticky RiceToday I’m sharing a mango sticky rice recipe for a summer ready Thai meal in partnership with The Plant Strong Vegan!

Fit For The Occasion

It’s not often I get to dress up but when I do, I cherish the routine of shopping for the perfect dress, adding on a sparkly necklace and spending a little extra time on makeup. Today’s look is a dressy one that is one of my favorites for any time of year.
