Dream A Little Dream Tonight

“Inspiration is finding something that excites you.” ~Connie Smith

These stairs in Silverlake got me thinking about what I am passionate about. My two passions in life I can’t do without are sports and fashion. It seems more and more that these 2 loves of mine are colliding, which is so exciting. What has allowed these two worlds to collide are my lifestyle blog and pr career.

My passion for both grows everyday. My blog allows me to embrace both loves and not having to choose between the two is such a joy and dream.

Each day I love finding ways to continuously have sports and fashion in my professional life and personal life. I am sure after I shot on the rainbow stairs, I went home changed into my sports gear and watched some baseball and/or golf. Even as I type up this post, I am watching my Chicago Cubs take on the Cincinnati Reds.

Something I still struggle with is trying to fullfill both sides of me (fashion girl & sports fanatic), but the more I focus on my blogging and honing in on my pr career it seems my two passions come together.

Being at the rainbow stairs and some moments since then, I have realized that I don’t have to choose between the two. For y’all too, if you have multiple passions in life, don’t get discouraged about feeling like you have to choose. You can find ways to pursue them both or even mold them together.

Each day, I am so grateful that everyone around me is so supportive, allow me to be me and pursue what I love. Don’t let others get in your way of what you are passionate about , where there is a will there is a way.

I love fashion and I love all things sports. They will both always be a part of all aspects in my life. I am so grateful and excited about where they both will take me!

P.S. What are your loves & passions in life ?

Another note, I find that when trying to focus on my passions listening to my favorites helps me to not lose track of what I love.

 

This World is a Jungle of Fashion

What do you all look for in a fashion staple to last you through the different seasons ? Each new season, I always try to find fun, key pieces that can go with anything. As I was trying to pick out what new pieces for Spring, I realized I wanted the key pieces I got to last me though Summer. For being a Cali girl my Spring and Summer fashion pieces pretty much go hand and hand. So when I got gifted this amazing, beautiful monogrammed clutch from Gigi New York‘s Spring line in the mail, I knew I found my key clutch/accessory for Spring and Summer.

The Azure All in One Bag is not only gorgeous, stunning color ( my new favorite), but it also is high quality, fits a lot and is versatile for any event you may have coming up from a baseball game to a charity event to a fun brunch day with friends. Versatility is always so important for me when it comes to a purse because I need it to transition not only from work to fun, but from sporting events to fashion shows as well. When I don’t have to always change my purse, I am sold. I am a girl who loves sports and fashion so when a purse fits those to sides of me, I fall head over heels. The Azure All in One Bag by Gigi New York fits all of those things I just mentioned, which is probably why I have been seen with it a lot already.

What I think you all will love to about it is that you can pair it with a casual on the go look to the ball park or for a night out on the town. When a clutch speaks to so many different facets, it is a trend that will last throughout multiple seasons, yay to the Azure Bag 🙂

Oh did I mention I am a sucker for anything monogrammed, thanks again for that added touch Gigi New York !

I have simply fallen in love with this clutch and will be rocking it for a very long time. It will be one that is on trend with its color, texture, monogram detail and tassels for years to come, it is classic ! I know you will all fall in love with it too and all the many colors it comes in. Don’t forget to go pick up an Azure All in One Bag for yourself in all the colors they have to offer, you won’t regret it 🙂

Savory, Sweets and Sparkle Extravaganza

“Leave a little sparkle wherever you go.”

Finding the perfect theme for an afternoon lunch can be a challenge, but a fun one. My usual go to is Nautical with a Parisian twist, but I wanted to chang it up this time. So when I got sent the amazing Unicorn party theme supplies by Tinselbox and a rainbow sparkle bottle of One Hope‘s delicious champagne, I knew I had my theme. With it being the year of the unicorn trend and sparkle was a must, I was excited to get to planning. My decorations were set, beverages chosen, so now it was time to pick the food.

My go to spots these days are All Recipes and Food Network and it was no different this time around either. I found some amazing savory googies to make: Garlic Cheese Biscuits, Deviled Eggs and BLT Pasta were from All Recipes and the Shrimp Arugula Crostinis were from Food Network, which were all a hit and will definitely be made again. I also picked up cheeses and meats for an appetizers at Trader Joe’s. I made sure not to forget one of the most important parts of a meal, dessert. The dessert of choice, Raspberry and Earl Grey French macaroons from Whole Foods, which are perfect with champagne.

Now that the food is squared away, it is set up time. A champagne and unicorn theme is perfect for under the lemon tree in my backyard and just the right time to bust out the vintage bar cart. It was a joyful filled with bubbles by One and Unicorn decorations and supplies from Tinselbox, which I will never forget. You can never go wrong with a day of sparkles, bubbles and fun with family.

Stay tuned for another savory and sweets extravaganza !

Going to make this short and sweet because I don’t want you all to miss out on all the festival fun. Every year music festivals seem to get bigger and bigger, a lot of it is because music is universal. Music continues and will continue to bring people together.

Creative Juices are Flowing with Passion at Art Hearts Fashion

Fashion is an art whether on the runway, exploring out with friends or a combination of the two. It is a special moment when you realize that you can share in something you are passionate and real about it over dinner before the fashion shows, during and after. It is a realness that is sometimes hard to find especially in fashion, but being with great friends made me realize it’s all around in fashion and outside of it and even the fellow fashion show goers were amazing and truly enjoying the evening. There was a sense of an intimate show with friends even with a lot of people in attendance.

Luckily in the see of people mixed with the sense of intimacy, I was able to get a combination of the art of fashion and exploring out with friends at Off Vine Restaurant. It is always an added bonus when you get an evening filled with amazing fashion  from Furne One, Mister Triple X and Michal Ngo at Art Hearts Fashion’s final night of shows put on by Parker Whitaker Productions. It’s amazing to see friends  do what they love and enjoy the things we are all passionate about together, which involved the great creativity and talent that came out of Art Hearts Fashion. The creativity not only came out of the designers, but the fellow show goers as well. I believe seeing those fashions are partly why I go and they too inspire like the designers.

To be able to be there with friends like Jessica Pinedo of Just Jess Fashion (one of my favorite fashion blogs) who support me and who I support is truly a gift and why I had such a great night. I mean who doesn’t love an excuse to get all dolled up to have a great night out with friends when fashion shows are involved? I know I am in every time.

A well put together show from start to finish always gets my creative juices flowing and anytime a French bulldog comes out on the runway, my heart melts.

I look forward to the next season of shows and attending with my fellow fashion loving friends.

 

Inspiration These Days

My inspiration these days has been coming from nature specifically gorgeous flowers.

I love going to the flower mart by me, farmers markets, grocery stores. All which have their own amazing selection of flowers.

One thing I truly love is that anytime I am around fresh flowers and walking through them my creative juices start flowing !

My latest inspiration from flowers turned into a fun, beautiful bouquet for my mom on Mother’s Day and shown as well previous fun bouquets from all around

My next project is going to be a mix of flowers and succulents.
Stayed tuned for the next trip to the Flower Mart!
