Coachella 2014 Day 1



      Coachella is always an adventure. This year I finally got to experience
      the festival and I'm hooked.
      Here's my day one outfit.
      Changed my shoes before going into the festival of course.
      You don't want to wear any sort of heel. As a festival newbie,
      I think I had beginners luck. I saw every single artist I wanted
      to see and it all seemed to work out perfectly. Other than
      the sand storm that covered everyone in a layer of dust, everything
      was beautiful.

Spring Clean


      Don't ask me why I look so angry, I have no idea.
      This is my RBF as Jenny would call it.  Look that up
      if you don't know what it means.
      Anyway, I've been making some life changes recently.
      Some big, some small. Reassessing my life and the people
      in it. Doing some spring cleaning I guess in many ways.
      Holding on to the things that are worth it, and throwing out the
      rest. Not going to waste my efforts on things that I'm not
      passionate about. And you'll be seeing a huge change this
      coming week that I'm so excited about. Just follow my instagram
      for updates!
      Love you all.

Under the Apple Trees

      Here's another post from Michigan in September. On the days
      that we weren't filming Mickey Matson and the Pirates Code,
      we all went exploring around the outskirts of town. We found
      this apple orchard that wasn't owned by anyone by the looks of it.
      Piles of rotting apples were under the trees turning back into dirt,
      deer tracks were everywhere, and it smelled like musky cider if you
      can imagine what that smells like. It was an amazing place and we
      made an AMAZING apple cobbler that night.

Wildflower


      I used to spend every summer in Michigan when
      I was younger. My sisters and I would walk to the
      beach every day and spend the nights laying outside
      and listening to the crickets. These were taken when
      I left fashion week early to go to the shores of
      Lake Michigan.
      That was in September. I can't believe its been that
      long. Its almost summer again. Michigan is one of
      those places that is dear to my heart and I always feel
      at home when I go back. A road trip may have to be in the
      near future.

Could You Love Me Just A Little

     Right now I'm in a contest on Fashiolista for Dahlia Wolf!
     I'd appreciate it if you voted for me! I'll get to design a 5 piece
     collection for Dahlia Wolf! Sounds super fun.
     Anyway. I love this top from them! The simple white tee revamped.
     Also, can't get enough of these shoes. Wearing them far too often.
     Love you all.

Camellia


     My neighbor always brings me flowers to my door.
     He's the sweetest old man who walks around barefoot
     and loves his garden more than anything. He has the most
     beautiful camellias that he brings over to me at least once
     a week. I'm holding one he gave me a couple minutes
     before I shot this look. I hate to get all sappy but I try to
     appreciate these little blessings in life. Because what is
     life without these moments?

Pressed Juicery Cleanse

If you follow my instagram, you would know I did the Pressed Juicery 5 day cleanse around Christmas time! I'm finally getting around to sharing my experience.
Day one was the hardest. I was hungry but it was more like I just wanted to chew on something. 
My favorite juices are featured in the close up images I posted on my instagram! The cucumber pineapple one is super refreshing and the vanilla almond one was the best at the end of the day. Super filling and creamy. 
Days 3, 4, and 5 were the easiest days for me because I was used to the routine and my body had adjusted to the liquid diet. I also noticed my tummy was flatter on day 3 because of the water weight I dropped from not having my usual dose of sodium. So that was an added plus! 
I would definitely do the cleanse again. My experience was great and I felt really good and clean afterwards. 
It forced me to have healthy habits after as well. You can't shock your body by eating a steak right after so I had vegetable soups and lots of salads for the following week. If I wasn't addicted to ramen, I would've been sodium free for the following weeks as well! 
I took it easy when I was cleansing. I went on a couple walks and did some stretching in the mornings but I tried to conserve my energy as much as possible. And I took a ton of baths. I had an excuse to! 
If you're planning on doing the cleanse, prep your body for it by eating lots of veggies and cutting back on meat and dairy. I have a feeling the first couple days were hard for me because I didn't really prepare for it! So thats my advice and my experience! Leave your questions in the comments below and I'd be happy to answer any you have! 
Love you all.
