reflection on the summer...

As we enter into fall, I began thinking about the past few months, all the ups and downs and changes I faced. I left my entire life in San Francisco to move to Los Angeles for the summer, and it ended up being the best decision I ever made. I had an amazing internship at LA based shoe company NewbarK under the guidance of stylist Marjan Malakpour and the rest of the NewbarK team, and truly felt like I found nirvana in the city. Everything seemed to fall into place, and I hadn't felt that in a very long time. 

There is now way I could thank Los Angeles enough.

Thank you NewbarK team, Marjan, Billy, Lana, Trang, Jensy, Eddie, Francisco, Aleena.. you're all my muses. 

Thank you to Maria for letting me stay in the most beautiful home and provide me an amazing place to live.

Thank you to Maya for being my best friend down there and for being my other half. 

I LOVE YOU LOS ANGELES


MOCA in July

My lovely friend and LA tour guide, Maya (floraabub.com), has been taking me to all the spots. First on her artsy mission to get me cultured was a trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown LA. While all was beautiful, our highlight of the night was Kahlil Joseph's short film "Double Conscience" based around Kendrick Lamar's album "good kid, m.a.a.d city", featuring scenes of the youth culture in Compton. It was the most visually and audibly stunning exhibit I saw.  It ends on August 16th, so make sure to stop by and be stunned. Enjoy babes x
