"Hotel California"

IMG_1631 The title of this track is me paying homage to the beautiful weather we're having in California lately. Being from Arizona, I like it a little on the warmer side and today was just that. At 10 AM I was tanning on my front lawn while I studied, and by 6 PM when I was walking home from my favorite coffee shop, it was still just as warm. I'm grateful because yes, it reminds me of Arizona, but I also know that its a lot hotter there right now, so I'm enjoying this.

I opted to stay cool in a loose woven lace top and vintage shorts, accessorized with a new DIY headband and some non-too-fussy arm candy.

Here's the track for you. Listen along while you view!

"The Science of Selling Yourself Short"

DSC_1276 You know what this background means? I'm back in Arizona! I wore this outfit to a family party on Saturday, and couldn't resist taking some photos in front of the amazing flowers in my backyard. Every year my parents and I get really excited about these flowers, so it's kind of a fun tradition to pose in front of them. Although most of this outfit is very simple, I love the big punch this skirt adds for a spring event!

Today's outfit track is "The Science of Selling Yourself Short" by Less Than Jake because I love the upbeat tune. Listen along here while you view!

ART_Tropical Pomeranian Skateboard Deck

DSC_1235jpg I have yet another skateboard for you today! This was commissioned board that I did for a friend to give to her boyfriend. It was a pretty unique request, blue tropical flowers with a running pomeranian and their anniversary in "thug" font.

I wanted to include this photo when just the background was finished, because I really liked how it turned out.

I also made another process video because I think it's a cool addition to the photos, so check it out or see more photos below!
