all we need is time

The sunset was reflecting a spectrum if iridescent hues in the traffic paint. A softened depiction of the vibrant sky above. That’s when I knew I was dreaming again. And what a feeling. Like a cool spray of sea quenching a desert soul.  I have learned a lot during this past year of accosted endeavors and ceaseless pursuits. The most life changing of which – work can be the most devastating sabotage of progress if it consumes time beyond its purpose.  We should all pursue growth. Attack life with ferocity that overcomes challenges, and discipline ourselves enough to accomplish even the most arduous tasks. But, we must never let that consume us. Or else, you risk losing everything – even the outcome you so earnestly pursued from the start.  We are all human. As such, we’ve been created with an innate desire to learn and grow. But, when we channel our vision, we loose sight of the inspiration around us. We forget to breath. We don’t pause to listen, to learn.  There’s a point where pursuit …

fast track through a day in my dreams, and silence in a noisy world

I can hear the sound of the electricity running through my lights as I sit here to write. That’s how unaccustomed I’ve become to silence. The refrigerator cooling, propane pilot light, the heater, the traffic outdoors a block away – it all sounds like an NYC traffic jam pounding in my ears. photography:MOM | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | luxury handbag: PRADA | basic pumps c/o: NAKED FEET SHOES It’s almost the holiday season, and it seems we are all more in a rush than ever before. In some ways, the silence feels even louder than the havoc a normal day might bring. Think about it. The first experience we have in the morning is jolting awake to a ringing alarm. If we dare silence it, we face it yet again. In my case, the cat is also screaming. The alarm works as her notification it’s time to harass mom clawing at her face for some morning affection. Checking emails, texts, social notifications all happens next. We’re bombarded with notifications of happenings in those few …

fall fashion

we’re a new breed; we’re ready for winter this time

The rain fell steadily behind the glass. Though the wind was as still as it was from indoors. The sky, dark, as was the unlit room. Days have gotten shorter. The sunlight, fighting for control of the shorter days. Fall has arrived, and with it, a hush of silence as we prepare for our first cold weather season in a post-Covid world. photography:MAMMA | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | lace dress c/o:MAGALI PASCAL | vegan leather dress jacket c/o:DAVID LERNER | pebbled leather pouch c/o:STATUS ANXIETY | shoes c/o:NAKED FEET Something about it feels quieter than before. Like the stillness resounds louder off of closed city doors. If ever we were urged to stay home, now is the time we consider, that might not be such a bad thing. Bears hibernate through winters, saving their energy for the more habitable months. As we continue to adapt to a new normal, we consider what the new season will bring. Trapped, alone, scared. The memories of summer past remind us of just how much has changed in …

lively bra review

more than body positivity with a LIVELY bra review

A couple weeks back, I was contacted by a team working with LIVELY interested in a collaboration featuring a review of their bras. I’ve sometimes been apprehensive working with bra, lingerie or swimwear brands, but something about their “made by women for women” grabbed my attention. Before I get on my soapbox, let me tell you a bit about the brand. LIVELY’s mission is to create a line of comfortable lingerie that empowers women. They believe women are sexy, smart and healthy, and they’ve developed a line of lingerie blurring the lines of lingerie, activewear and swim to fit into the modern woman’s lifestyle. LIVELY bras are comfortable, sexy and affordable First off, mission accomplished. I received two bras from LIVELY – The Lace Strapless and The All-Day Deep V bra. Both are truly so comfy, I was genuinely impressed, and very excited to get started on my LIVELY bra review. I almost never wear bras (sorry mom). But I’ve just become a convert. Up top is The Lace Strapless which is honestly great not …

perspective of reality, emotions and fantasy | what is real life a day in our dreams

I believe that who we are exists somewhere between reality, emotions and fantasy. There are times our emotions tell us things our mind simply cannot. Who we love. How much pain we can bare. What makes us happy. Fantasy is the next level, and perhaps the most raw essence of self. It tells us who to trust. It gives us that gut feeling that we can neither create or ignore. It is a realm where our creativity and imagination are truly limitless, without the restraints of physics or science. People often dismiss the part of themselves driven by fantasy. But why? Why turn away from the only part of yourself in which you have complete control and direction. The place you can be anything you choose. They say it’s not real. It’s just a dream. But aren’t dreams what drive people to accomplish incredible things? Hasn’t every visionary and leader of every generation first started with nothing more than a dream. Believing only in reality is a trap. You’ll never grow past the things you …
