The Day I Realized My Life Was Calling


There are times in your life you need to listen to your heart and your soul. If your soul is screaming then it’s time to change direction and re-evaluate your life and surroundings.  I knew it would be scary to take a risk, but something needed to change.

It has been almost 6 months since this realization and the trip that I took, that happened to be the calling of my life.  At the time I was working in an environment full of negative energy. I Knew I was not following my heart or passions and I was becoming negative too.  It was time to take a leap of faith and leave the job.

I searched the internet for something and somewhere to go and came across this amazing place called Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. It was like a calling because everything fell into place. My flights were dirt cheap and the accommodations were amazingly cheap too.  Since Camilla had not started a full time job yet and was only working freelance, I looped her in and dragged her on my adventure.

Together we found paradise and a new calling.

So let me introduce you to our little slice of heaven:  Lake Atitlan

Dream Space ::::::::

The best thing about bedrooms is that they’re specific to the people living in them. Your bedroom is yours. Your space to create, make your own, and hide from the rest of the world when necessary.

Wanderlust // Fernweh

After you take your first few big bites out of the world, the taste is sure to linger in your mouth for a while. It’s bittersweet because you’re not always sure of when you’ll be able to get away again, but you know that you would do anything to get that feeling of freedom and self discovery back, if you could.

This is where I am right now.

Pining, thinking and dreaming of ways in which I can  e s c a p e once more. Blaargh.

* r e v e l a t i o n s *

I don’t want to toot my own horn here, but I recently had “Eureka!” moment that requires me to state couple things,  and I’m going to warn you now it may be a little cheesy, but just bare with me anyway. (Or get off my blog. *blows kiss*)

1. I’ve had the privilege to grow up in one of of the best states, within one of the greatest cities of the world. 2. For twenty-one sweet years of my life I have called Los Angeles, CA my home, I am only just now starting to understand the magic that it holds.

:: Journey of a Dress ::

Everyone loves wearing a cute dress on a Sunday afternoon. I especially am a sucker for a good dress. But when you get to wear that dress while you explore the exquisite collection and exhibition of the wrap dress goddess herself, Diane Von Furstenberg? Perfection.

The Loss of a Legend

A little less than a week ago tragedy struck in the film world when one of the greatest actors of our time, Philip Seymour Hoffman, passed away.Some of our favorite movies in the whole world are the ones in which PSH held significant roles in and it’s hard to imagine not being able to see him in any more movies as the years go on. He had so much left to offer and it’s difficult to grasp that his demise was constructed by his own demons but if his death can teach us anything it is that sometimes things are not always so black and white.

Everything Philip Seymour Hoffman graced the screen in was gold. From Almost Famous to Capote, Hoffman brought characters to life that not only touched our hearts but also called our minds to attention with his thoughtful and truthful depictions of people who we could relate to, whether we had seen similar aspects in our friends or in within ourselves.

We have collected a few of our favorites stills from PSH’s best films to commemorate his life and his work.

As Lester Bangs in Almost Famous

As Lancastor Dodd in The Master

As Dean Trumbell in Punch Drunk Love

As Brandt in The Big Lebowski

As Truman Capote in Capote

As Scotty J. in Boogie Nights

As Phil Parma in Magnolia

RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman – you had true talent and you will be dearly missed.

Currently coveting…plaid

We’re Mad for Plaid this season.

Be it tartan, madras, checks or glen we love them all, it’s just about the mix of highs and lows.  A structured traditional tartan mixed with denim or pairing a cozy flannel shirt with a feminine piece, are the favorites.  Of course no one can deny a good old flannel shirt worn with distressed denim, but it’s typical and on every junior companies website.  What we think it’s all about is the not so common mix and if it’s done well, it’s perfection.

Below is what we think is the best plaid combos at this years fashion weeks, from NYC to Paris.
