spring wardrobe refresh with thred UP

If you’ve been around these parts for a while, you’ll have noticed that though fashion is a big part of my life, I’m not always buying new clothes, and much of what I wear is secondhand (see here, here, here, and here). I’ve talked at length as to where and why I shop for gently […]

antelope valley poppy reserve

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the best part about living in Southern California is that we are always a quick drive away from innumerable weekend destinations and landscapes. Whether it’s the beach, the mountains, the desert, or wine country, there’s no shortage of beauty around these parts. This past weekend, to celebrate the start of spring, […]

remember time this spring

Human nature is a funny thing. We can freely give advice…but so often fail to take it. We both love unconditionally and irrationally have an aversion to others. Sometimes, we even willingly do those things that scare us. And though time is the one constant in our lives of which we may never be granted […]

embracing my inner child

To be honest, I’ve been feeling a bit all over the place lately. Excited about opportunity one moment…completely overwhelmed and defeated the next. For as much as I try to live in the present, I’m a worry-wart at heart: an endless planner, a list checker, a goal seeker. In the midst of all of that, I […]

There are a lot of cool things about this internet age…a lot of unfortunate things to be sure, but a lot of really inspiring content and connection nonetheless. It’s so easy to snap photos, hit publish, stream video to thousands of people in the blink of an eye; all it takes is a half decent camera […]

As someone building a personal brand (both in my acting career and in this space), I can really appreciate the hard work that goes into growing something from the ground up. I can appreciate the bravery it takes to pursue […]

the solution is simple

We live in a digital world, that’s for sure. And though I love the speed and convenience of technology, I often find myself grasping for those mediums of the past – handwritten letters, dropping off a roll of film to be developed, picking up physical books from the library. There’s a slowness in these efforts […]

valentine’s outfits through the decades

Love it or leave it, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. And instead of selling you on buying new clothes or sharing shades of pink (I know that’s not everyone’s thing), I thought I’d instead pull some date night outfit inspiration from my own closet – no shopping trips necessary. So if you’re feeling like you have “nothing to wear” […]

one piece, five outfits

We have several trips and expenses coming up this year, so in an effort to save some money and get creative with my wardrobe/clothing rut (I did just read this and am pretty sure a closet purge is in high order), I thought it would be a fun challenge to style one item of clothing five […]
