As some of you may know, a few months ago I took the leap and quit my job in the entertainment industry. Since then, I’ve been doing a lot of exploration, meditation, and coffee consumption. And I’ve come to the conclusion that my next chapter was going to be very different. One thing that is really important to me is expressing my creativity and helping people in a way that is transformational in their life.
So I’ve decided to go back to my roots in fashion. But this time I want to do something more meaningful and impactful, not only for my clients but for my community.
Lost Angeles Style is a personal styling service that incorporates inclusivity and intuition. My goal is to help my clients realize that they are inherently worthy and deserving of feeling good in their clothing. No matter what size, gender/ non-gendered, skin color…you get the idea.
And as for community, I’ll be offering a sliding pay scale for low income POC and LGBTQ clients. I believe that everyone should have access to this type of service no matter their economic status.
In the future there will be workshops, community events, and new products.
I can’t wait to share more with you!
There are a few people that truly inspired and helped me through this process, whether they talked me through a problem, gave criticism, or inspired me to take on this new business. Shout out to Zadi Diaz and Leah Garza for their generosity!

I have embarked on a new project that I’ve been really excited about and can’t wait to share it with you!
It was born out of the release of Ivanka Trump’s new book. And I think we all know how that went. I was so frustrated, like so many, by the blatant exclusion of women of color, women with two (or three!) jobs, and the lack of ACTUAL career advice.
So, in response, I wanted to photograph working women from all walks of life and circumstance. Whether it be working moms, working grandmothers, or women who are just starting out in their careers.
I hear so many stories about women juggling multiple jobs while supporting their family, or women who are going through a rough patch in their career, not knowing if what they’re doing is right for them. As women, we’re complex, passionate, and we have a million stories to tell. And this is the space to show the world who they are and where they’ve been.
If you know a woman who should be featured, just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Murray and I need another adventure, where should we go next?
I’m so tired from driving all day. So here’s just a few photos of Murray in Solvang. Solvang is small town North of Santa Barbara, it was founded in 1911 by new Danish settlers from Denmark.

For those of you who don’t know about Solvang:
Solvang is small town North of Santa Barbara, it was founded in 1911 by new Danish settlers from Denmark. Giving California a taste of their homeland, the Danish built their buildings in traditional Danish architectural style. There are many bakeries and restaurants that serve traditional Danish foods, most famous are the Aebelskivers from the Solvang Restaurant. They’re like round pancakes with jam and powdered sugar, have them with sausages and coffee! It has great little shops and is just a great town to visit. Solvang also makes in appearance in the best movie ever, Sideways.
*Disclaimer- Technically yesterday was my birthday, I post these next day.
Today, I turned 30. Here is a list of things I did, in no particular order:
- Drank one pot of coffee.
- Read a book, nearly finished!
- Walked around and looked at trees, contemplating my existence.
- Colored in adult coloring book.
- Drank my favorite beer, Pliny The Elder, arguably the greatest beer in world. Seriously, look it up, it’s made right here in Somona County. Fuck birthday cakes, I’m a goddamn adult.
- Watched my favorite BBC show, Miranda.
- Cuddled with Murray, went to sleep.
I basically had a perfect birthday. And thanks to all of you who looked at the “Today’s Birthdays” section on Facebook, and took the time to wish me Happy Birthday.
