~ wednesday workday fancy ~
today's agenda consists of beautiful things, and beautiful work. I have to pinch myself on a daily basis that this little idea 💡 we cooked up in less than 24 hours has grown into a real thing. With our 6 month anniversary freshly behind us, I'm throwing on a little fancy and facing my Wednesday with gratitude.
🥂Cheers to all the #girlbosses out there... and double cheers to the girls who will be bosses someday!
~ oh, geronimo ~
has anyone else become as obsessed with @geronimoballoons as I? I find myself watching her insta feed just hoping the next installation is near me!
Large scale installation art is my favorite medium to patronize, and it makes me happy to see such incredible artists getting the chance to make magic ✨in everyone's day.
~ tackling tuesday ~
I spent a good part of my morning recovering from yesterday's epic Disney day, and now my afternoon is for seriously buckling down to work.... but I can't help but wish I could teleport to #Paris to have #coffee & #brunch with @Alohagiselle at @holybellycafe right now. Can I? Please?!
~ the happiest place on earth ~
when your best girl, in town from the other side of the country, suggests the magic kingdom, you say "duh!"
~ backlight magic ~
What is it about light from behind a subject that makes it feel like everything is glowing? (look for the deeper metaphor I'm getting at here...)
Both in photography and in life, sometimes there is #illumination that comes from more than the subject at hand. And the message today at @radiuschurchla was exactly this. It's part of a powerful series on relationships & love that have been rocking my worked over the last 6 weeks, culminating in today's timely message.
You can go back and listen to the messages on their website radius.la, and I invite you, too, to have your world rocked.

~ travel crew ~
Though you know I'm a huge fan of #travelingsolo, some of my best memories are traveling the world with my amazing crew. This #selfie with @jessicahoffmanbeauty & @sarahkurtenbach was snapped in the middle of the #TuscanCountryside on our infamous #E14 trip, and you can see the genuine joy on our faces.
🌎 Travel can be stressful and challenging at times, but more over, it is an adventure, a chance to just admire our beautiful world with out the hubbub of daily life, and the opportunity to learn more about ourselves and our relationships.
~ kiss me, i'm irish ~
Fun fact, my full first name is #Kathleen (so very #Irish 🇮🇪), only a rare few of my friends ever use it... & it always makes me giggle when they do. 🍀
In true #globalcitizen fashion, though, I'm wearing a #green tee, drinking some #greentea 🍵, and feeling very green to see my friends' travel posts abroad, while I rock my very American day in LA. 🌴
Happy St. Paddy's Day, y'all.
~ I'm a happy girl ~
... with nothing to do but have a #shondathursday night in--
Strike that, I'm a business owner aka there's no such thing as a night off (but I will have Shonda on in the background💁🏼)

~ up up up! ~
My dad was a funny guy, replete with groan-worthy #dadjokes. My favorite thing he'd say in a really cruddy situation was, "Well, you know what Shania Twain says... Up Up Up can only go up from here." Complete with terrible dance moves. 🕺🏼
As my fatigue has been so hard to push past in recent years, I took this on to be my daily mantra. To just get up up up and go.
And now, thanks to my darlings at @thegivingkeys, this mantra is hanging around my neck, with the hope that someday, I can pass this encouragement on.
~ marble obsession ~
I know you probably look at this image and see insanely beautiful diamond baguette earrings, but I see marble marble marble. Is anyone else obsessed with all things marble? I have a marble phone case, a marble computer skin, and clearly love using marble as a background for beautiful #jewelry!

~ smile through it ~
For the last 3 days, I've been waking up feeling like I have rocks piled on top of my body. The simple act of opening my eyes feels like I'm opening a vice. And even after I'm up, a haze of fatigue hangs over me for a good part of the day... my usually quick mind feels muddy, and everything aches.
But through it all, as I start my #biohacks to try to get my adrenals working & my energy up to speed (which, hallelujah, actually works), I find many moments to smile, and to be grateful for where I am today... even when it sucks.
~ latte art ~
I admit it... I often order my latte's hot just so I can enjoy some pretty #LatteArt. But as the weather warms up and ice is calling my name, I'm realizing my beverage can still be art!
~ desert life ~
We may have gotten lots of luscious rain ☔️ this winter, but we still have to admit, we live in a desert!!
And though I'm back in from Palm Springs, I'm determined to embrace some desert details in my LA life! Starting with this perfect cactus 🌵 keychain from @electricpicks!
1: lay by a pool often
2: dine al fresco
3: drink lots of 💦
~ lean wit it ~
I'm leaning into my Monday taking a page from the @katetik book of fabulosity. I woke up dragging from not getting enough rest over the weekend, but I #biohacked my way back to functional and now am rocking into the week ahead.

~ audios ~
Saying farewell to #PalmSpring pool time, and my favorite @lindaFarrow #sunnies that I've adored so much! Since Ditto is ending their endless eyewear program, I'm on the hunt for fierce new #sunglasses and need your recommendations!
Obvi, a #cateye is my jam, but all style suggestions are welcome!
~ work/play ~
When your client suggests having your meeting in #PalmSprings, you do not hesitate. So grateful to be a part of Team @CindyKarenClothing, and can't wait to launch her social media, soon!
~ if you need me ~
... too bad
~ friday night red 💄 ~
I just finished my @shapehouse session, and getting my #friyay #redlip on, and headed home for a wild night in 😂! Who says you have to be going out to look fabulous?!
Me & @kaitness are of to #PalmSprings tomorrow for a little work adventure!
