A little bit about me. I was on the path to becoming a doctor at Penn, when it suddenly hit me, medicine was not my calling. You can imagine my parents’ surprise and disappointment when one day I declared that I was suddenly at odds with my life’s path. Needless to say, it didn’t go over well. At that point, I would have had a better reaction telling them that I was 16 and pregnant. But all I wanted was to create. I wanted to make the world a more beautiful place than I’d found it and I wanted to document it all. And since they couldn’t disown me, as much as they probably wanted to, I was given the green light to study Literature and Fine Arts.
Fast forward a number of years, today, I am doing what I love. I get to share my personal style and put manicured nails to keys in an effort to share what beauty looks like through my eyes. Beauty is such a personal thing and we all experience it differently. And with more ways of capturing it than ever before, Anaïs Nin put it best, “we write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” I feel an equal responsibility to relive moments through the treasures I capture with my camera. I have a gift or a curse, depending on how you want to look at it, for seeing beauty in everything. So my eyes are always searching. When I am not writing about it or snapping pictures of it, I am creating it. I put my personal touch on things through styling, decorating, painting and even cooking. Fashion, food and travel are just some of the ways that I get to experience the world and I get to take you along for the ride.
What fashion whipped means to me is the ability to relinquish power to all things beautiful without losing sight of what’s truly important in life. As a San Diego transplant I get discover something new every day. You will find its unparalleled beauty captured in many of my posts, be it on this site, Printerest or Instagram. A travel destination for many, San Diego is my home now and when you visit my website, I hope you feel a connection to it, as well.
