It. Is. Hot!!! I’m currently melting in very sunny Los Angeles and sweet baby Jesus in the manger I need a Slurpee that’s bigger than my head. (I think 7-11 has that size, right?) So many dope things happened this week and this time next week I’ll be prepping to see Harry Styles in concert for the last show of this tour. #winning

Let’s jump into this week’s favorites, shall we?

visual travel diary // Joshua Tree National Park


Several months ago (I know…I’m a little behind the ball) some of my favorite people were in LA for a mini vacation. We decided to check out Joshua Tree for the first time as a short excursion. I had heard so much about JTNP since moving to LA and this seemed like the perfect time to check it out. I’m hoping to visit again soon, but for now these memories will have to suffice.

This is a purely visual diary, and as we all know–a picture is worth a thousand words.

✨ 28 Affirmations for 28 ✨


A couple of days ago I quietly took another turn around the sun. In a lot of ways birthdays are like a ‘reset’ or New Year’s Eve–minus the celebrities in shiny dresses freezing in Times Square without their tea. I want to be more intentional about the way I enter into my late twenties and early thirties, to shake off that wide-eyed what am I doing with my life kind of feeling. I’m not 100% sure it’s possible to shake off, to be honest. I think it may just be a side effect of being alive.

I figured a few affirmations couldn’t hurt–am I becoming that LA person??–and so I pulled together and wrote 28 affirmations for 28. Many of them are from Louise Hay who seems to be the mother of affirmations in the modern age. You don’t have to be 28 to use them and if you find something in the list that resonates with you then you should write it down and post it somewhere you’ll see it daily. After all, we’re hurtling through space on a (relatively) small sphere that’s be around longer than we can ever conceive of, what’s the harm in believing in good vibes?

Hello world! I dropped…off the grid. Big time. but! I’m back now (hopefully). I find it so hard to keep up with…stuff…when I’m in the midst of traveling a lot and trying to stay on top of my responsibilities. At the end of the day I just want to go home, watch Law and Order:SVU and pretend like my mound of laundry is not big enough to grow arms and legs and grab me. I’m headed to New York City in a couple of days (my first time back since I’ve moved!) so this is my effort to try to get my previous travels all caught up here. As usual, these are some of my favorites from the last week (or so)….
