the law of least effort

If there’s anyone who knows how to capture the essence of a moment through beautiful photography, it’s Bruce Weber. His photographs feel natural and easy, a characteristic of true talent. When you’re aligned with expressing your innate gifts in the world, it’s a practice in one of the seven spiritual laws of the universe: The law of least effort. This principle of no resistance adheres to the intelligence of nature. A blade of grass doesn’t try to grow. A flower isn’t forcing itself to bloom. Maybe that’s why his work feels so harmonious.  I’m curious about what you think your unique gift is for the world?

proenza schouler: on the money

Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler certainly haven't lost touch with what a cool girl wants to wear. Chalked up as "american sportswear," their collection of polos, blouses, midi skirts and dresses are far from boring. Offering effortless necklines while pairing graphic prints with graphic prints and fringed shoes with crocheted skirts, these fellas managed to achieve a unique and exciting perspective on making basics new. Sounds right on the money to me.

you be the stripes to my star

can we talk about the makeup at the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear show? So great! I'd like to do this everyday. if we're going to paint our faces, why not make it a zany, whimsical, and fun. life shouldn't be serious and fashion definitely isn't.

from the streets: NY Fashion Week

Here are some of my favorite looks seen from the streets of NY Fashion Week. The sporty elements are so reminiscent of the 90s while the crop top still reigns. Both something for me to smile about. I can appreciate the tomboy ease and comfort matched with a feminine touch. What looks do you like?

dry and mighty

clean hair is important but so is healthy hair, which means not washing every day. that's tricky if you want it to look so fresh and so clean clean (a la outkast). for LA dwellers it's especially harmful to wash daily since the water here is officially the worst. i recently had my hair colored by the top professionals at Studio LA and got the low down on LA water and it's affect on hair. they were very scientific about it and not getting into the deets but it's no bueno. no bueno at all. to my luck, my friends at ambiance introduced me a perfect solution that saves water, your hair, and time for that matter with their volumizing dry shampoo. it's completely natural (paraben free, alcohol free, sulfate free) and easy to use with the perfectly designed brush that comes attached to the bottle. this lets you control the output and makes each application completely natural looking. since i typically shoot every day, good hair is job requirement so i'm stoked i have this little secret weapon in my back pocket. do you use dry shampoo? check out ambiance here
Here's what the official people say about it:

Ambiance Dry Shampoo cleans hair and absorbs excess oil, leaving hair looking, feeling and smelling freshly shampooed.

Ambiance Volumizing Dry Shampoo contains no alcohol, is non-flammable and will not damage or dry out hair. This formula is for all hair types and is paraben, sulfate and preservative free.
