“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all of your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” -Golda Meir


Wishing you beautiful thoughts and sunlit days, for the weekend is upon us . . .

“You can never be overdressed or overeducated”

– Oscar Wilde


There is nothing quite as breathtaking and beautiful as this chandelier lined catwalk.  As images of art float down the runway, one shirt in particular caught my attention. Entirely composed of diamonds, it glided down the runway, catching every facet of light in the room, shimmering towards the awaiting flashes of photographers from around the world. Truly breathtaking, a stunning work of art.


Here, we love all style inspiration, from couture to the everyday woman.  But today it is all about elegance.  Beaded and silk works of art.  Shades of perfectly pretty neutrals, to bright accent pieces like fushia and red, all color is fitting for those sunlit days that fade into unforgettable summer nights . . .

Wishing you a summer of romance and style. xo


“Self-confidence is the best outfit, wear it, own it, rock it.”


A few gorgeously chic ideas and images for all fashionistas out there . . . Dreamy mixtures of fashion and a few favorite things. Diamonds layered upon diamonds and blush colored couture- truly fit for royalty- are amongst this collection of utterly beautiful images.  I find myself dreaming about velvet ribbon-tied heels, white bouquets of roses, sheer tulle skirts and delicate lace dresses, just to name a few. . .

Wishing you a beautiful Monday. xo


“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, and what is happening.”

– Coco Chanel

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”


After weeks – more like months – of travel, I am home.  And so happy to be where I belong.  What a beautiful weekend it has been… weddings, photo shoots, many reflective walks on the beach and the gathering of my dearest friends – over red roses, candles, drinks, hilarious costumes and most importantly, the celebration of my beautiful friend’s birthday. Today is church and brunch with close friends, and on this beautiful and bright Sunday, nothing could be more fitting or more evocative of the day’s mood . . .

Side note: We fall often, for the striking and extremely beautiful sights of flowers in photos. I want to encourage you to go out and buy some for your home, wether that’s romantic roses or bright colored orchids! I recently read an article about a study done at Harvard, showing that people with fresh flowers in their home are more empathetic, happier and positive.  I was having a hard day yesterday, so I went out and bought some flowers.  Now, every time I look at the bouquet by my bed, my mood lifts and I smile. Guess it’s true! Though… I knew it all along ;)

Happy Saturday!

I have no idea where to begin. Life has been non stop — relationships, work, moving…  its been quite a journey the past six months.  For a long time my heart was too broken to pick up the pen (so to speak) and do any kind of writing.  But as time passed, it allowed me to slowly heal enough to be able to gain back my voice and finally get back to normal. Sincerest apologies for the long hiatus. I look forward to sharing all of the exciting things that have happened as well as so many wonderful things that are currently in the works.  I am so blessed to be doing some incredible photo shoots with wonderful teams and magazines. I can’t wait to post them! For now, wishing you a gorgeous weekend filled with everything beautiful that you dream about and wish for, including those simple pleasures often taken for granted.  Wether that be a relaxing night of sleep or a steaming cup of fine coffee, may you appreciate it all and take time to smell the roses, everyday.


“We have to remember that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over. The notion that it is too late to do something is comical.  We must not lose the sense of possibility, because in the end, it’s all we have.”

– Marina Keegan

It’s a rainy and blustery Sunday, flower petals are whirling, dancing along the window pane as raindrops fall. It’s cosy here, the scent of vanilla and sandalwood lingers from the candlelight, and here, under a fur blanket, dreams of love and happiness fill my mind . . . Wishing you a beautiful day wherever you are.


In light of recent events going on internationally, I thought that today, a collection of inspirational quotes would be fitting for our spirits. . . Love one another, life is so short.


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover.”

–Mark Twain

“If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

-Roald Dahl

“In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart.”

-Anne Frank

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

–Maya Angelou

“Only in the darkness, you are able to see the stars.”
