rebel child

December 9, 2014




Every girl should walk around town with two hot guys (my new friend Joel Alexander and my man Weston James Palmer behind camera) whilst in matching leather jackets at least once in her life. Do so in a city environment and match outfits. It's a good way to break out of social shyness. We're both rocking Diesel leather motos and unruly attitudes. PS, being pantless sprawled across another man's rug is/was only okay in this situation ever.

Check out how others are vibing with Diesel and big thank you to Weston for making that rad video. Shop the collection here!

oh betty

Diane Von Furstenberg top and skirt. Jenni Kayne brogues gifted from ShopSuperStreet.com

It's a good thing I never went to a private school, or any school that required uniform dressing. I can imagine a lot of girls never wanting to see pleated skirts and matching tops again. But maybe it's my irrevocable rebellious mentality that draws me to wearing something homogeneous in a world where we can wear and do what we want. It could also be that it's so utterly mindless to throw on that has me in this outfit 3 times this week already.

will this work under water?

November 6, 2014

Have you guys gotten your mittens on the Wang collection at H&M yet? Before or after the site crashed? Well, looks like there's still enough for the picking - head to the outskirts of your city for those H&M pickings. The bikini is still floating free on the site, so I might snag that. But I'm pretty stoked about this neoprene sweater - more so on the advantages I can have in the water with it. Hopefully, maybe? Beach babe-ing for life.

platnium blond hair care

November 4, 2014



You guys have asked me a lot about my hair care. To each their own but this is what kind of worked for me. Although, it's almost been a year since I've had my hair blonde and I've made an eternal promise that I'll go back to black after a year. I seriously wish people had recommended me these products earlier than my trial-and-error. I'm still discovering new things to try with my hair.


1. HAIR MASK
One ingredient hair mask: coconut oil. Throw it in and this helps repair your hair from the complete and utter shock you did with the bleach. Pureology Essential Repair is another good one that I leave in during the duration of my shower.

2. PURPLE SHAMPOO
To rinse out the mask, you have to constantly tone your hair. It gets brassy just from being outside so purple up. Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure is so good and I leave it in my hair. I also keep Shu Uemura's purple balm at my man's house to leave in my hair after I spend time in the water. Feels like a fresh color again.

3. SHAMPOO LESS
And when you do, use shampoos that don't lather. My good friend Anna introduced to my Wen by Chaz Dean, which is god's gift. I have yet to try this brand No poo, but it's totally in my radar of new experiments.

4. GET TRIMMED OFTEN
Sorry girl. Platinum hair means your ends are probably fried.
Sassoon Salon. Costa Mesa, CA (714) 556-5673
Creative Director (and all that is holy in my hair cut); Tani Cole

5. BE GENTLE
This was never a problem when I had my virgin hair, but damn, my bleached hair sticks to everything - including each other. Satin pillow cases help with snagging at night. And I will break up the texture of my hair with a detangling spray. Dig this one from Honest.

6. DONT SKIP APPOINTMENTS
Or consult with my hair dresser to see if blonde is the right color / routine for you.
Sassoon Salon. Costa Mesa, CA (714) 556-5673
Salon Director (and all that is holy with bleaching); Adrianna Harrison

7. OIL BASED PRODUCTS
A few tried and true, but these have all been products in giftbags. Ava Hair Oil after my hair dries from a shower to style. Aloxxi Essential 7 Hair Serum light enough to throw in every day.

Or, if you want to watch the video (uhm hello, why aren't you watching?!), I run through all these tips on camera.

Lastly! Some lovely readers named off some rad recommendations I want to check out myself:

Spend a lazy daze with me

October 9, 2014

This apartment was an integral part of my life, so I'm happy I got to capture the essence of it before I moved out. Literally after filming this, I started packing as I already signed the lease to my new apartment. From heartbreaks to new love, jobless to new careers, single dance parties to 'end of the world' parties. I loved this apartment to bits - it was just time to upgrade into something with more space.

The video isn't much of a tour as it is capturing a beginning and ending of my life. If you guys want to see more photos of my apartment, head over to this older post on my blog.




Also, 50 facts about me if you haven't seen it yet ;)
