P’Trique & I!

DSC01936

We both love blonde hair and supersized cat eye sunnies, wearing maxi dresses and admiring high fashion. P’Trique and I. Who cares if he has a beard (blonde one too) and I wax? We don’t have to agree to everything.

We met at the Beautycon conference in LA (he was a guest speaker I was a VIP guest – still can’t believe THAT Nyx goodie bag!) and instantly connected (online). There’s just so much about blonde hair that brings people closer.

Wearing a certain someone on a tee being one of them. #Together_Forever #Love_You_P’Trique!

Proudly wearing P’Trique’s The Platform tee (a rad alternative here), denim cut offs from the flea market, my favourite silver Supergas, Topshop faux fur clutch, The Neshama Project hamsa necklace and my happy smile as per usual

LACMA

IMG_6254

LACMA never gets boring. Save for the tar pits (where they did find interesting mammoth fossils), the giant stone called Levitated Mass and the crazy variety of food trucks outside, the inside is also full of wonders: Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse, Lichtenstein, Hockney and a whole lot more of utter greatness. You can just sit there for hours. So when the night falls, you get to see Chris Burden’s Urban Light aka 202 lit antique street lamps.

It’s a sight for sore eyes.

As for me, I am wearing a great flea market find, this see through kimono with embroidered sleeves (similar here), gray denim shorts, white tank top, combat boots, Celine sunglasses, Samudra pouch

Bed Of Flowers

There’s something about this place that makes you want to be you. The real you. It comes easy, it’s effortless, it’s uncomplicated and it’s basically what you need. To express yourself, to live the life you want to live, to be utterly free.

This place offers the freedom to become who you were destined to be, undemanding but challenging every step of the way. And what a way this is.

When you hike all the way to the top of Runyon Canyon you can see it clearly. LA in all it’s glory and at your feet. If you can see it you can be it/achieve it/become it/believe it and so on.

And although this might not make a lot of sense, when you actually experience this magic feeling of belonging and being open to the universe, the universe will reward you. OR you can always reward yourself with a juicy In-N-Out burger (that is strategically (?) situated right down the hill).

And that’s also worth it.

Hawaii 5-0 Part I

IMG_6194

Arrived in Hawaii.

Pinch me. Am I really awake? I have this strange feeling that I might bump into John Locke any minute now (and I will definitely settle for Jack and/or Sawyer for that matter). Leptospirosis (and polar bears aside) this is true paradise. Virgin jungle scenery, roosters running free WITH their offspring, cold coconuts in every corner and THE BEST Kombucha tea there is.

Giant waves (those surf lessons could have come in handy), insanely beautiful waterfalls, Jurassic Park themed surroundings and the occasional tropical rain for the win. I was constantly chewing chocolate covered macadamias and sugarcane and I only stopped in time to look at the star encrusted sky at night.

Maybe it was all a dream after all. Maybe it was even better.

Wearing this swimsuit (so that the sharks won’t miss me), Mr Kate Beautymarks (gold/silver edition here) that almost gave my mom a heart attack and pink mirrored Wildfox sunnies (an even cooler pair here)

Pink.Lace.Shorts.

IMG_4489During a very hot summer day in Downtown LA.

Accompanied by my favourite Athens based turned Angeleno street style photographer, Streetgeist, I visited local showrooms, I ordered a hell of a maple glazed turkey sandwich and an ice cold Kombucha tea in a secret passage/cafe that was as beautiful and peaceful as they get, I discussed life in the city of Angels (only perks, I really don’t mind the traffic) and I stood in front of the lens and some very vibrant bi colour walls.

Came back just in time for Orange Is The New Black.

Pink Lace Shorts Style By Stories, Jefrey Campbell Oriley Cut Out Ankle Boots, Blazer, White Tank, E&E Tortoise Sunglasses (similar here), embroidered bag bought in Myconos (a nice clutch alternative here)

Drunk In Love

IMG_4648

 

Can you be utterly drunk in love?

Can you really fall in love with a place?

Can and will this emotion last forever?

Can life always be this beautiful?

Can I drink this cashew vanilla cinnamon agave milk everyday?

But most importantly … can I stop time?

Bikini that makes me smile courtesy of Victoria (The one with all the secrets (similar bottom here, top here and bottom here top here), Wildfox pink mirrored sunglasses the lilac version here), fringed kimono, Blue Print Cleanse cashew milk, Los Angeles necklace, fortune cookie necklace

Hola!

filio58A little Mexico in the heart of LA

Cómo estás? Muy bien! Colourful surprises await in every corner of this magical city, I couldn’t but feel transported somewhere over the border (and maybe soon I will actually be :)). Picturesque surroundings that could only be complimented with one thing: TACOS (one of my favourite spots Mexicali Taco and Co). I’m hungry now.

Holla!

PS: Sorry for taking this long to update the blog, I have literally been living in a dream.

Wearing maxi dress (a printed version here, a more formal alternative here and my next purchase here), Zara blazer ( a black version here), Topshop espadrilles, BCBGeneration bracelets, earrings vintage (would love to be wearing these), Venessa Arigaza heartbreaker bracelet

B*TCH, PLEASE.

filio87

Apparently, everyone in LA can be a Victorias Secret Angel (thanx to Colette Miller that is). Could I pass up that chance? No. Do I wanna take pictures every time I visit the Magnolia Bakery on 3rd street (it’s right opposite)? Yes.

What did I do when I got back home? I put on my Pink sweatpants with the huge ANGEL print on the side just to make sure.

That I haven’t fallen from paradise. Yet.

Pink crop top, denim cut offs Levi’s, round sunglasses, New Balance sneakers, Gumball Poodle socks from Kitson LA, shirt Zara (a dusty pink version here)

Malibu Stories

IMG_3558

The story begins with a secret, hidden gem beach somewhere in Malibu (frequented by sea lions amongst other creatures), rocky surroundings, audacious seagulls, total serenity and a magic sunset for the win.

The story ends with an infamous, giant, tomato filled pizza from D’Amores.

Long story short, that is.

Things in this post you might wonder where to find: the fabulous one piece printed swimsuit by BSB Fashion, Celine sunglasses, Salty Dream beach towel, lace beach dress

All Pink Everything

filio32

P is for pink walls, pink hair, pink nails and very pink attitude. And not necessarily the cute kind.

LA gets me. The more colourful you are, the better. I mean, there are rainbow coloured pedestrian crossings here. And then there’s Pink’s hot dogs (with a never ending line, no matter what time or day you go by). Pink smoothies from Earth Bar (with a bit of slim down boost, just for the placebo of it) and some incredible-never-gonna-forget pink sunsets (that turn into lavender) that were actually the inspiration behind my new logo (do you guys like it?). So yes.

I’m definitely feeling pink.

Wearing white blazer, denim shorts, Givenchy Bambi tote, H&M sandals (a fancy alternative here), lace bralette, baseball cap
