Happy thanksgiving babes! I’m soooo thankful to be alive this year. I’m thankful for the friends who graciously supported my decision to make changes to my life, my parents who FINALLY came around and began to believe in my choices, and my boyfriend who taught me to stand up for myself and say “fuck it” to the rest of the world. I’m thankful for the struggles I experienced my first few months in LA. There were times I legitly only had $5 in my bank account. I’ve never hustled so hard to survive and it really taught me the true worth of a dollar. Im thankful for the job I now have allowing me to be creative in a field I always desired to be in. But mostly, I’m thankful for the recent opportunities Aylmer and I had working with companies we use to dream about. I honestly feel like I’m on a high I never want to come down from. The year isn’t over yet, but is it too early to say that 2017 has been the best year of my life?! Haha. Count your blessings babes Wishing you and your families all the best!
Last day in New York! @stomper_haus and I are heading to @nike x @footlocker Sneakeasy one last time to sign some prints and then we’re heading home to San Francisco just in time for Thanksgiving gonna miss the city so much! #luxeonthego
Feeling humbled af to see @stomper_haus’ art displayed at the @Nike x @footlocker Sneakeasy event. For yeeears, I’ve see him struggle with his passion and trying to find himself in the art world. Ive seen all his art phases (basic graphic design, tattoo art, abstract fine art, AND MUCH MORE.) trust me, I’ve seen it all. Who knew you would end up in the shoe game Just last year, he started stomperhaus on a whim, quit both our jobs to make shit happen in LA, and now WE HERE doing thaaangs with the big boys. #proudgirlfriend moment. Also in other events, happy 7 year anniversary. You are everything. #luxeonthego
Hello NYC!! Long time no see @stomper_haus and I here to attend a special event for a collab he’s been working so hard on. Stay tuned to see the grand reveal on my stories tonight. I couldn’t be any more excited, trust me. #proudgirlfriend P.S. thanks to everyone who helped me shop for this bag on my stories. I got more votes for the Star purse tbh, but I just couldn’t resist the fur! #luxeonthego#thestreetiesrisingstar

Spent the whole weekend back in the Bay Area shopping at some of favorite spots at @stanfordshop. This lounge set from @meundies is sooooooo ridiculously soft. I showed my mom and she’s begging me to buy her these pants for Christmas Blog post of my holiday shopping trip coming soon! #foundatsimon
It’s been getting cold in LA so my skin has been drying out due to the weather change. It’s been making my makeup look super flakey, and lessbehonest...that’s not a cute look I like to perform this multi-step night time skincare routine on days when my skin is feeling dry and parched. I received some of these k-beauty products from @innisfreeusa as part of the #preenmevip program and I’ve been loving how they’ve been treating my skin so far! I wake up with skin feeling extra hydrated and looking glowy the perfect foundation to any makeup routine! #washoffteaon
Obsessed with @bobbibrown much? Super excited to rock these highlighting powders for some upcoming holiday looks. Also, the crushed lip color in blackberry has become a Fall favorite of mine. I love the satin finish, giving me an effortless and natural tint to my lips. #bobbibrown
I’ve been smiling in a lot of my recent pictures because quite frankly there’s A LOT to smile about! I’m heading back home to the bay this weekend, celebrating my 7 year anniversary with @stomper_haus a few days later, traveling to New York in 2 weeks, then heading back to the bay to celebrate thanksgiving, MY BIRTHDAY, my nieces birthday, and Ayl’s mom’s birthday. November is usually a big month for Aylmer and I, but this year IT’S HUGE! I might be a little early for thanksgiving, but I’m pretty thankful for all the work and opportunities this move has brought us. Literally keeping us soo busy in the best way. Reminding you guys that if you focus on a goal, anything is possible.
Sorry, not sharing because all these bowls are for me // @theharvestbar is the perfect mix of healthy and super freaking good! They’re opening their new location in Playa Del Rey on Saturday, 11/4. The first 100 guests get free bowls #aworldofgood#harvestbar
I had the honor of modeling the new @hm x @erdem collection today on Good Day LA. It’s pretty much flower-power-everything and although I love fall, this collection makes me wish it was Spring forever. The new collection is launching in stores tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled for that!
Hope everyone’s having a safe and fun Halloween I already celebrated over the weekend so I’m gonna be a grandma and Netflix and chill tonight. SWIPE RIGHT if you wanna see @stomper_haus in his true form.
Living back in the Bay Area, for the longest time I was feeling lost, stuck, and didn't think I was going anywhere. I felt like I wasn't giving enough attention to the things I was passionate about because I was too busy trying to please my family in ways that didn't feel right to me. I was going through the same everyday routine and not even the slightest bit content. I was crying every single day and if not, every other. When I graduated out of college, I was at my unhappiest working at a job in a field I was never meant for and not being able to open up to my friends and family about my issues. 4 months ago, Aylmer and I finally decided to take the plunge and move to LA with no jobs lined up for us and barely enough money to pay for the second month of rent. I've never had to hustle as hard as I have these past couple months but I can already say that this move has been the best decision of my life. Yes, LA has its ups and downs and our financial issues haven't been the easiest, but we're both dealing with it as best as we can. I feel so fucking blessed to be here, having the opportunities I've had so far, seeing Aylmer's art finally pop off, and hurdling over challenges with the man I love. I am so happy to be alive! Here's your Friday reminder to never stay content. There is always more. Keep running towards your passions and your goals. Happy Friday! #keepstrivingstaythriving
