it’s been too long { post }

Keeping up with a blog is not easy when you have school work, class after class and a boyfriend you wish to give all of your time to. I cannot complain about any one of those things (okay except for maybe the assignments), but sometimes there’s just too much to do. There is SO MUCH that’s been going…

{ dating } & the month of .l o v e

Is it possible to be too picky? I don’t think so. While I was home I had a very young girl approach me at my brother’s basketball game. She asked: Are you in love? Do you have a boyfriend? Why aren’t you married? How old are you? Do you have problems? Can’t your Mom help…

the comfort of being h o m e

Recently I have been visiting my home due to various obligations. I cannot say that I would complain about any excuse to make it back to good old Utah. Isn’t it funny how the feeling towards your birthplace changes over time? It is the sense of security and comfort that draws me back over and…

Jazz nights and happy days

Have my LA people heard about the Sunday night Jazz nights at the W hotel downtown? Well it’s new to me, and I must say it is quite a good time. In fact it is one of my favorite events I’ve found here in a long time. Of course I enjoy my casual friendly nights,…

Tea, Art & SKATE

Saturday nights are usually a time to for me to chill. Working weekend’s calls for resting in between shows and putting up my feet. This las weekend I was drawn to a neighborhood teahouse however, which I’ve been watching them put together for some time now. Although the shop doesn’t officially open until late January, there was…

NYE fun ~ supporting friends & dancing all night long!

The last day of 2014 was spent with the greatest collection of friends, as well as the first day of the New Year. I am one lucky girl to call them mine. Usually the closing to any given year is expected to end in one big smooch; well at least that’s what I keep hearing. Funny…

Holiday Festivities from sunny Los Angeles ~

Tis the season for parties, and winter festivities. Living in LA makes for slightly inventive celebrations to the holiday season. Since we only experience one season all year round, the concept of snow is not exactly understood. Although we have ready-made ice skating rinks in various locations, there’s no place for sledding, building snowmen or…

Group shoot – Time for the Holidays!

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of being involved in a group shoot with some awesome people. We were sited at the Echosworld studio loft location for photography in the Arts District downtown. This is a beautiful space, providing exceptional lighting, dressing areas and props available for your use. Honestly you could spend all day…

….. friends, fun and praise!

On Sunday I went with my Aussies to our usual Mosaic weekly service. I honestly look forward to this every week and this time happened to be rather special. Since the Christmas parade was happening down Hollywood Blvd., we had to relocate to Club Nokia at LA Live aka the Staples Center. Not only were…

A weekend of laughs…

What a perfectly FUN weekend I had with some of my favorites! It is nothing but rainy days here in L.A. this week, which calls for a celebration. We haven’t had rain in months and we are in dire need of the water. In fact if it rained for a month straight, I still don’t…

The fancy ways of Vienna, Austria

Well I must say Vienna has been one of the most extravagant cities I’ve ever seen. It is so incredibly historic that you can’t help but stand there in amazement. After a long bus ride, we all couldn’t wait to get to the hotel knowing that we were staying at the lovely Ritz Carlton. Oh…

Lots of Love

Talk about the most PERFECT weekend! Wow. Normally I don’t like to talk too much about my personal life. I like to keep things private for the most part. However this weekend has been too good not to share, and I owe it all to my guy! Thursday night we began by hunting for a…
