PHLO’ING THROUGH LIFE

PHLO’ING THROUGH LIFE

2015 has been good to me so far. Like I stated before I never make resolutions, I just make a list and I check it off. I’m working harder and I’m healthy, so I’m thankful for that. However, with everything else in my life much more stable, I’m longing for partnership now more than ever. It seems every single person I know is married with kids and with social media (instagram) and seeing pictures of everyone’s “happy family” and pressure from immediate family with constant questions of “where is the one?” its difficult not to feel a sense of envy and despondency. In any rate, this year I want to take all that my trials and tribulations have to teach me and be smarter, wiser, and more intelligent. I want to absorb everything I’m being taught by the universe. I want to constantly remind myself that beautiful things come out of horrible situations, I want to be centered and more balanced. I want to read more, travel more and speak more eloquently. I want to be softer and I want to be gentler. I want to be more forgiving, more honest and most importantly, I want to live less on what I think other people are doing and how far ahead I think they are and do more for my own pleasure and happiness. Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated. I’m wearing my Lovely friend’s line PHLO winter collection. Check out her website for more information

ALL CAPED UP!

Hello darlings,

                      So I’ve been living in Los Angeles for quite a while and I think I’ve been to our neighboring city of Pasadena just once. So, Nicolas and I decided to have a little Sunday fun and explore the city. We grabbed coffee and explored old town Pasadena and made our way to the suicide bridge. I’m wearing Topshop cape and H&M fedora. Enjoy your Sunday loves!

I love you all, Lets be Happy, Healthy and FABULOUS. I’m wearing a Zara dress (Yes, I’ve worn this dress before, I’m a repeat offender).

COUPLE SHADES OF GREY

Happy Thursday! First off, I want to say “thank you” to all my lovely followers that wished me happy birthday, you guys are simply the best and I just want to hug and kiss every one of you. As we are getting closer to the end of the year, I’m meticulously going through my “goal list’ of 2014 and checking off everything that I’ve accomplished so far and I’m quite happy to say I only have one thing left to do!! I moved into my new home and I started decorating.. I’ll post pictures for you guys to see. I had an inspirational day at Milk Studios and whilst there decided to take some pictures. I love the state of the art architecture of the studio. I was wearing my good friend Mariah’s Phlo two piece finished off with a simple leather jacket.

SAINT LAURENT

Hey my lovelies, 

Sorry for the radio silence on outfit posts. Things have been a tad bit difficult but hey that is Los Angeles. Winter is officially here and you know what this means? (Actually, not much in LA, since we have paradise weather. Yes, I’m totally bragging). However, we still get to wear some light layers. I love fall weather, simply because you can be stylish without showing skin. There is something powerful in been fully clothed and still looking fabulous. I wore this all black look last week because well that is exactly how I was feeling: BLACK! Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – you don’t bother me.” My friend Nicolas Bates took this pictures on Rodeo drive at the Saint Laurent store. We had a a good time.
