this summer i focused on self care. always making sure i had fresh flowers, being kinder to myself, nourishing my soul and replenishing my spirit. because after all, we owe ourselves the love that we so freely give to others. ♡


death valley | valentine's day

5:21 PM
Death Valley National Park

this trip marks our third visit to this majestic mystique. at a little over 3 million acres in size, we wanted to explore something different this time rather than the usual sites. we camped in the park but ventured to an old forgotten mining town called rhyolite, right outside of death valley in nevada. this town had a population of 8,000 people during its glory days. however, as the gold started to diminish, so did the people. now it is a ghost town in the high desert. despite its deteriorating appearance, the essence of life still lingers. i hope you enjoy this little adventure with us and can see all the beauty that still remains here.

intentions are the starting point to every dream and lately i have been setting all my intentions on moving to ojai. the idea of picking up and moving away from everything familiar is frightening but it's been a while since my heart has wanted anything so much. for nearly a decade los angeles has been home. the city has teared me down, toyed with my self-esteem yet has the capability to empower me in other aspects of my life. spending my 20's in los angeles has definitely helped me grasp a good sense of self and with that came the realization that maybe i don't belong in a city after-all. i belong in a forest ... where i feel most inspired surrounded by the distilled imagery of nature and the the sounds of quietude.

ten thousand people gathered to the desolated desert on october, 10th with the simple intentions to RiSE. the night was hopeful, filled with anticipated magic and unembellished emotions. i hope this video can convey everything about the affair i can't articulate into words.
