bonjour Paris


Paris is a romantic and magical city. Paris is known for its beautiful architecture and its decadent sweets. Our first night we sailed along the river Sienne and saw Paris at night.  I love Paris at night. The city just sparkles. I loved sailing under the Paris bridges and seeing the beautifully lit architecture at night.  Everywhere you turn you can see people along the water taking a stroll, dancing, and eating. Petite cafés bursting onto the sidewalks of the Parisian streets. Magical…

The next day was all about Crepes & Cafes and a visit to Notre Dame.


We strolled along the Sienne River. Visited the Love Locks Bridges starting at Paris’ point Zero.

At night, we visited the Red Light District for Parisian Cabaret and I ended the night eating Macarons in my hotel room.

hello London


Hello my lovelies. I’ve missed you! I’m back from Europe. My trip was so magical. This trip was in celebration of my mom’s retirement. Congratulations to her and I’m so lucky to have been able to celebrate with her. I loved everything that I saw and the people I met.  I’ll be sharing my trip with you city by city. London was the first city. I so loved London and I think I would say it’s one of my favorite cities I visited so far. I could so see myself living there.  Here is a glimpse of my London…

I loved the signage. London had beautiful graphics all throughout the city.  Our first night, we wandered through Carnaby Street and had a lovely dinner at Sketch.

graphics {lookbook + line sheets}

I heart graphic design times infinity!  I wanted to share my latest graphics project with you.  I recently partnered with a jewelry designer {however in the UK they spell it “jewellery”} named Catherine Preston. She is originally from the UK and now resides in Hong Kong. She came to me requesting a Look Book and Line sheets for her jewelry business. I created a short teaser look book and line sheets so she can send them out to potential buyers {prices were removed}. She had great photography for so it made the process easy to design the layouts.  Here is a glimpse of the latest…

Happy Weekend Sparkles! Elliot is turning 1 this month. Crazy how fast a year goes by. Elliot is the daughter of my dear, dear friend {Keysha}.  We spent an afternoon at Seattle’s Volunteer Park and the weather was perfect for a park photo shoot.  This photo shoot was all about bows + balloons + ruffles. Little Elliot was so adorable and I loved taking photos of her.  To see all the photos, visit the online gallery.   Happy Birthday little Miss Elliot. You will be walking in no time. Here is a glimpse of the Sweet Elliot photo shoot

Colombian graphic artist Fulvio Obregón is drawing a connection between the past and present. You may have seen this on social media recently.  In a collection titled “Me and My Other Me” {“Yo & Mi Otro Yo” | Spanish} his illustrations feature famous celebrities in both their “Old look” posing with their “Young self”. Notice the detail in the t-shirts they wear highlighting or mocking their life’s achievements. Love the look of these illustrations. My only question is….where are they women? Rumor is that an ad of a woman next to her younger self was the inspiration for this project. Here is a glimpse of the collection…

Seattle Photography

My good friend Ann was in town almost a week ago and we spent one morning at Gasworks Park {Seattle, WA} to take some photos of little + adorable Carolina.  It was the perfect morning to take pictures, Seattle couldn’t have been more beautiful that day.  For this photo shoot we wanted to go for Girly + Urban + Tutus.  It was so great to see Ann and take photos of her amazing family. I’m so excited to share these photos with you. To see all the photos, visit the online gallery here. Here is a glimpse of the Little Carolina photo shoot
