Jenny Yoo 2015 Campaign

This past spring we had the opportunity to design the flowers for Jenny Yoo's 2015 campaign. The dresses were a dream along with the ethereal hair accessories by Erica Elizabeth and the incomparable Mar with Team Hair and Makeup did the girls up to a tee. And of course it doesn't get any better than Sunstone Villa. It's something out of the dreamiest dream.

Autumn

The nights are cooling, the sunlight is more golden, days are shorter. The seasons are changing.... I love the shifting of Summer to Fall more than any other season. It is gradual and then all at once... Did I hear that in a TV commercial? Sounds a bit cheese. Love it.

I am terrified, anxious, and extremely excited about the projects I have for this fall. There is a lot going on this October, When did October become the new June of popular wedding months? I don't have any clue, but I'll take it. Summer flowers are starting to make their glorious exit, as the fun seeds, pods, bits and bobs are making their appearance. Good stuff. I say bring it on you gorgeous season you..

Life, yo!!! WTF. Why are you so hard sometimes??!!! real talk: it is not all sunshine and roses, people!!! Feeling sad, heartbroken, and lost in my personal life today. Thank you Lordy lou for my job which brings so much joy and challenge and beauty to my day to day.... especially on tough days like today. Thank you for my health and strength and faith that there will be brighter days ahead.

what the what

Went the the Pantages Theatre in LA last weekend ( that theatre is drop dead gorgeous by the way ) with 16 members of my ever so lovely family to the The Book of Mormon. A highly obscene, offensive, crude, blasphemous, fucking funny play by the brilliant Trey Parker and Matt Stone. It feels like watching a live action episode of South Park. So stylistically them and their humor and their art. It was incredibly fun, and even more fun that I got to see it with my 83 year old devout catholic grandmother. I wonder if she got any of it?? I was expecting her to be highly offended and after the show I asked my twenty something cousin who was sitting next to her how she handled it, and he replied she was chin the chest passed out pretty much the entire time. Geeeez Grandma, way to support the arts. Hope you had a nice nap. 

 

Beach walking in the fog yesterday was peaceful in a gloomy- isolated- cozy kind of way. Perfect for the contradictory place I seem to be in lately. Maybe it's Mercury in retrograde...but I've been a tospy turvy extra sensitive emotional blubbery mess lately or a total insane c- u- next tuesday. 

Got to spend February 14th celebrating Saint Valentine with my crazy ass family in Big Sur. We bring crazy ass to a whole new level, but man I wouldn't trade them for the world. We are perfectly imperfect bunch of dysfunctional functioning nut jobs. The four hour drive from Santa Barbara to Big Sur was a happy adventure in itself. Stopping for gas in Cambria I ran down the street to my favorite shop within a shop Grow Nursery, to buy a chunk of blue tumbled recycled glass to add to my collection. We proceeded to lose mother Margaret for 30 minutes. She wandered away from the Chevron station and got caught browsing in "some dirty hippy shop", as Dad called it. We eventually made it to our rad cabin at Big Sur Lodge after an awe inspiring drive up the coast, complete with wild zebra and sea elephant sightings. So coo'

The rest of the trip was just as memorable. Hiking in Pfeiffer State park to the waterfall and Valley View lookout, beach walking to Pfeiffer Beach to see the sea arch. Purple sand! Have you ever seen purple sand??!! It was the trippiest damn thing. 

The food at Big Sur Bakery is beyond beyond. So good. No adequate words. 

Already planning the next escape up that magical coast..... 

werkin it out

Hi! I did my first photo shoot for an awesome bridal magazine Flutter Magazine. It was an amazing experience to work with Joy Proctor of Joy de Vivre, KT Merry star photographer, Libby of Casa de Perrin, Mar of TeamHairandMakeup, Tracy of Lazaro Press. It was a stellar and inspiring day filled with beauty oozing out of every corner. We even had a husky puppy on set! Totally the star of the show. 

This week has been extra nutty with a side of nuts. Weird and wonderful and weird again. The past seven days have been a test no doubt about it. A test in patience, keeping calm, finding balance and not letting upsetting personal issues effect my attitude. I think I scored around a C+. Plays well with others but there is room for improvement. Tomorrow's a new day.

With the new year comes a lot of reflection on the past twelve months. It's contained some amazing light filled peaks and equally as dark valleys, but there is forward motion and I am proud and ever grateful for that...Getting featured on Style Me Pretty was a career highlight of 2013 for sure. I find myself in tears at my desk. It was such an honor and such a surprise that I couldn't contain my ugly cry. It was a moment of profound gratitude and elation that I will remember forever. It signifies such a milestone for my little business, it felt amazing.

It's been a long day of getting down to business writing proposals and returning emails. So excited with how 2014 is shaping up already! Goals, plans and resolutions set; a few fun trips in the works (Big Sur and Puerto Rico!), a 10k run in my near future, and lots of happy couples and pretty flowers along the way as well.
