Sarah

I met Sarah a few years ago working on a shoot together with a mutual friend. We, like most people these days, began to follow each other on Instagram. I’ve since kept updated on her life through her open, honest words and beautiful photos about motherhood. She has carried that openness throughout her fraternal twin pregnancy (boy and girl) while also caring for her young toddler Penny. It is because of that honesty that I felt the urge to reach out and ask if she would let me doll her up, chat with her, and put her here in this space.

Shot, shot, shot, shot...everyboooody!

 I was nominated for an award about a month ago. I was honored, with 125 other women, chosen from around 350, as a San Diego Woman of the Year nominee. 

I mention this for two reasons. 

One, is to milk every last moment I have out of being a San Diego Woman of the Year nominee. 

The second is, because I find something in our nominees’ gift bag a little questionable.

Beauty Edit: The New Year (Part Two)

Another year has past. We made it. Congrats everyone. I know it's felt like a feat of will to have lasted the year that was 2016. I don’t know about all of you but the climate of words, the mood of the year felt like dread with a whole lot of gratitude for it’s end.

Currently Obsessed: Holiday Beauty

On this currently obsessed holiday edition I wanted to not only bring the current beauty products I am obsessed with but also, an easy to do holiday beauty look.

A holiday beauty look for me is going to be little bolder and yet keeping in my preferred style, simple. I like to add a bit more color and bit more sparkle. For this look I decided to do that through highly pigmented gold shadow, glowy skin and a stained red lip.

Alive in New Mexico

I took a trip at the end of September/beginning of October to New Mexico with my sister. Road tripping out to the southwest is something I have wanted to do for a while. For over a year it has been steadily streaming through my brain, “get to New Mexico”. I don’t know where this started or why but the seed was implanted. That seed had another little seed inside it and it said “get to New Mexico and see Georgia O’Keeffe’s home and studio in Abiquiu.”

Beauty Moment: Lena

Today Lena shares her love of yoga...

After I quit dancing (ballet), I kind of had nothing. I didn’t know what direction I wanted to go. I didn’t go to college. I just got into yoga because I was so familiar with body movement...

Tracey

Tracey is a wife, sister, daughter, friend, model, and in the last year she has been Mom to Kirra and Greyson, her twins. I asked her to share her story of motherhood on this very special day of celebrating all the beautiful things our mothers do and are.
