Guys, I’m super excited to announce that I have officially launched my youtube channel! I’m going to be taking you guys all over Los Angeles to my favorite places as well as trying new food products (or just products that are new to me), reviewing beauty products, showing you fashion stuff and so much more! So be sure to subscribe if any of that stuff sounds interesting to you!
One of the things I love about the internet is that it connects you with people that you never knew existed. I am constantly discovering new clothing lines via the inter web, and I especially love ones that share the same values as me, which is why I was stoked to discover Olaf Design Studio. Their mission statement: “Build a wardrobe of beautiful, flattering essentials and feel good getting dressed every morning. Vegan. Sustainable. Ethical. These are the cornerstones of what we’re all about. A Brisbane based label where everything is designed and made under one roof, using fabrics that are friendly to animals and the environment. They look better, feel better and wear longer. Simple, classic staple pieces that never go out of style. It is my hope that by creating and consuming mindfully, we will discourage the pervasive view of clothing as disposable.”
The line is so airy and feminine. It’s perfect for the Southern California weather. One thing I love about smaller, independent clothing lines are the personal touches. When my package arrived there were cute little hand written notes on how to wash the clothes. Now, that might not sound exciting, but the fact that someone took the time to make them means they care. This such an awesome line and I love supporting it, oh and 10% of all sales are donated to Animals Australia…HOW COOL IS THAT!?!

I’m gonna come out and say it, I hate Valentine’s Day. I think it’s pretty dumb and I’ll tell you why: you should be doing nice things for your significant other all the time. Not just one day when everything is over priced. I don’t think I’ve ever been into it and thankfully, Adam, isn’t either.
So, this outfit is for an anytime date. Could be day or night which is one of the reasons that I love it. I’ve been really into white as of late, as well as these higher necks on shirts and dresses. It makes me feel Victorian or something. I also love the sheerness of the top. You could easily rock a sexy black bra underneath it as well.
The jacket was a total steal. I was paying for an item at Zara one day when I overheard the girl next to me talking about the jacket she was buying. The saleswoman told her the jacket was actually 60% off. So I immediately left the counter and headed to the racket with the jackets, praying that it might actually be vegan and IT WAS! It looks and feels like suede but it’s not and it’s nice and light so it’s perfect for So Cal weather.
The shoes I found at Ross on NYE when I was supposed to be shopping for a necklace organizer. But we all know you can’t go into Ross and just buy the one thing you went there for when they have so many great deals.
And lastly the awesome dangling heart earrings I’m wearing, Adam got for me over the holiday in Kauai. They were hand made by a local.

Sometimes it’s fun to be a tourist in your own city. I hardly ever do it and I’m realizing that I should be. On a whim, Adam and I decided to head down for a day at the Santa Monica Pier. It’s been so long since I’ve been there but it was a fun day date. You can play games, ride rides and get your fortune told. It’s took me back to my childhood. Part of my resolutions are to have more fun this year. Say yes to stuff and not be so boring. 🙂
Clearly by the look on my face in the last photo, I’m terrible at these games. But I had fun anyway!
