New post up! #bohemianstyle #ootd
I’ve spent a lot of time in the high desert recently, assisting on fashion shoots and working on stories for print. If you’ve been watching my Insta stories, you’ve gotten a sneak peek behind the scenes. For the October issue of Palm Springs Life magazine, you can expect couture gowns and a story about a …

New #ootd  on the blog today featuring Tobi. More festival outfit inspo for Coachella... just a couple more weeks away, babes! #shopTobi   #coachellastyle  
What a great week in the Valley! I’m always so energized by the sunshine and time with the fam. Living long-distance, 420 miles away from my bae, makes our moments together that much sweeter (side note: he totally hates it when I say bae). We always do sushi. We always do wine. And we always …

New #outfit on the blog, wearing +Romwe and +H&M. Today I'm recapping the last two years and talking personal growth.❤️
Around this time, two years ago, I was tossing around the idea of packing up my life and hightailing it to San Francisco. Shit had hit the fan, I was dealing with a lot of grief, and I needed out. I needed something new to focus on; at 26, with my bachelor’s degree on an …

It's difficult to pinpoint a favorite article that I've written during my time as a lifestyle reporter at Golden Gate Xpress, but it may be safe to say we saved the best for last. Meet the Oscar-winning producer behind Pixar's 2015 film "Inside Out," one of my favorite films. For sure my favorite animated film. And I'm thrilled to say he's as cool/kind/gracious as you might expect. #Pixar #JonasRivera #InsideOut
Accepting an Academy Award is one of those seemingly intangible pipe dreams that most people only fantasize about. For SF State alumnus Jonas Rivera, the Oscar-winning producer behind Pixar’s 2015

Dear Instagram, don't mess with my feed. Kthxbye.
I shared my first photo on Instagram in January 2011, three short months after the app launched on iOS. It’s an awkward, duck-faced selfie snapped in the car and horrendously
