Heaven On A Harley

Earlier this summer I decided to take action to fulfill a childhood dream. One that was highly frowned up by family and friends (and I understand why), but it's something I've always dreamed about and wanted before I ever decided to have children (also...no I'm not pregnant). You've probably figured out by now that this dream I had was to own my very own motorcycle! And it's crazy I've actually done it. It surprisingly came very naturally to me, I think only because my first car was a stick shift. But none the less it was still scary. Scary because of other drivers, scary 'cause I've never done this before, it was just scary. I thought a few times "OMG, should I have done this?" and it was intimidating to move into a culture that seems to be so male dominated. But I wasn't and never will let the fear of the unknown dictate my future. I have never lived that way, so I wasn't going to let fear creep in now! And after months passing I've become more comfortable riding and I have the feeling of freedom found on a bike that I've always dreamed of. I have this space with the bike, the road and wind where I'm by myself letting go of a stress-filled day and just riding.
It's place I've found where I can just BE. It's become this sanctuary where I process, talk and dream and dream bigger world changing dreams with God. So I guess you could say I've found a little piece of Heaven on my Harley. :)

Enchanted

This sheer top from Zara has got me feeling all sorts of enchanted! It subtly shows the body in an interesting way that one wouldn't expect; and the color and placement of the embroidered flowers gives the perfect feminine touch. I love that this year has been full of embroidered details, it looks good on basically everything! 
I've got embroidery on my Gucci loafers (they are proper grandma slippers for sure👌🏽) and my husband even has it on his shirts, beanies and his slip-ons. My mum asked if he was trying to be like me...I'd say maybe a little bit!

The Little Pink Dog

In honor of Junie B.'s 16th birthday (April 28th) my little sisters and I decided to give Junie a fresh new-do by giving her a beet juice bath. Yes that little dog below is 16 believe it or not, so that makes her old af...haha 112 in dog years! 
She's the furry little sister we used to dress up and walk around the neighborhood in a stroller, have dance parties with, swaddle in blankets, our little cuddle buddy and we'd have to clean up her poop when she got into a tin of Hersey kisses from Valentines day. 
I can't imagine life without her. I still remember picking her up from the breeder and thinking she was the cutest one because she was the runt of the litter and had unique little spots of apricot on her ears and back. Now that she is pastel pink I'm even more in love with her and I think it put a little pep in her step! Haha who really knows if she is aware she is pink, all I know is she seems to be acting more like her old puppy self again!

Cheers to another year little Junie B.
I love you!

April Showers

So the saying goes, "April flowers, bring May flowers", well that's not so much the case here in Colorado. Instead of rain we got feet of snow, that then melts away the next day! My Instagram friend who now has become a real life friend, Kate and I did take advantage of what is hopefully the last snow day before summer (you never know though!) to play on Lookout Mountain, drink beer + eat some greasy Marquis pizza. 

Also here is footage of my newly colored hair, it is peach + yellow although sometimes it looks orange + yellow. But I didn't realize I'd look so much like my childhood hero Haley Williams, I guess dreams really do come true!

All About The Shoes

Let's be honest, this post is really all about these shoes. I've always been obsessed with shoes, well boots specifically... and I've never been more obsessed with any pair I've owned until these babies came into my life. The best part is that these were gifted to me from a dear friend, who obviously loves me very much! 'Cause who would ever give away a pair of new Tommy x Gigi shoes from this seasons runway show away? Uhhhh...not me!!! I am so very thankful to be a proud owner to these sexy boots! Took a look.

2017


And just like that...another year has come and gone. It's been a whirl wind and it has also been rich in adventure and full of inspiration. I was blessed to serve yet another year with Youth With A Mission...as it was also my last *sniff sniff*. I was able to volunteer another season of fashion week both in NY + LA. I made new friends and made more memories with old ones. Mike and I found ourselves a church home at Zoe LA. I continued to pursued my career in hair and made new business endeavors. I got to check Oregon off my bucket list (and I need to go again). Mike and I spent three months in Europe (specifically Barcelona) staffing a school for artists and creatives and Michael with skateboarding and filming. AND the last two weeks of the year and we ended up moving back to Colorado! Phew! The last month has been a blur, but it's nice to start the year of fresh and with some clarity. Cheers to 2017!

Wishing you all love, peace, joy and happiness!
