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!?!

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!
