#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 12 – Tattoo Time (Again)

Yesterday I visited Lyle Tuttle tattoo shop in North Beach, San Francisco to get a tattoo (or two). It's been over two years since I got my last tattoo so I was long overdue. My friends Alanna and John picked me up and we had a full-on tattoo party at the shop, complete with beers (I don't drink beer but I had a sip lol) and tattoos all around. "Nowhere to go but everywhere" is from On the Road Again by Jack Kerouac. Even as a simple, standalone statement like that, out of context, I believe it's so fitting for me becaus[...]

Not So Basic.

I wanted to put together something casual and chic to highlight these amazing tri-toned heels from Alias Mae, and their neutral but popping color palette made it easy to do so. I stuck with my uniform jeans and white tee (another pair of my staple Hudson Nico Super Skinnies, and one of my new staple Everlane tees), then threw on a brown leather belt to accent and match my brown Fossil satchel along with this lovely, cascading trench coat from Akira; to add a bit of drama when I walk, just the way I like it. :) Sometime[...]

I've begun taking photos of all the food I eat at restaurants and making note of all the venues I venture to (while trying to compile all of my old photos as well), because come 2016, as I said in my previous post, I'm building out other sections of my blog, one of them being the Travel section. The intention is to create a "WHEN IN" guide for every destination I travel to from here on out, so that if you ever decide to travel to the same place you can come back and reference them for things to do, food to eat, favorite pas[...]

Sometimes all you want to do is throw on a midi dress, a jacket, some Chucks, and not think about it any further ... and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact, this is sort of one of my favorite outfits in a long time. You could really wear this anywhere - to work, walking around the city, brunch, dinner, the movies. I think it's totally acceptable to wear this to dinner but if any of you ladies prefer to dress up, just switch the shoes to some strappy heels and you're good to go. Wearing a Cotton On dr[...]

Inspired Space.

Posted In: BeautifuLife | Interiors
Thanks to Pinterest and Instagram, creating an inspired living space has become a top priority of mine. When I think about "creating quality content" for my blog and social channels, I am often reminded of how important consistency is when trying to take this blogging thing seriously. The next logical thought then becomes why not make the place you live in also a space that you can shoot in every day, that not only acts as your bubble to create content within, but propels that notion forward by inspiring ideas and action[...]
