Throwback Thursday!

I've gotta apologize again for not having posted in forever. It seems as though this is becoming a habit and I'm not stoked on it!! I just feel like I've been working nonstop and haven't had the time (or the sunlight) to be able to take photos! So, since I don't have anything new to show, I thought I'd do a throwback. These photos are from about two years ago. This was the first time I ever shot with/met Andrew, and we've been friends ever since. Seems crazy that these were taken that long ago now. Time really does fly.
How was everyone's Christmas?! Mine was pretty low key, spent it with just my parents and sister. It was honestly really nice, not having to work and just spending the entire day with them. I really do love my family. They're just the best.

Anyway, hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas!

Black Friday!

Bell bottoms; The Laundry Room | Kimono; The Laundry Room | Top; Forever 21 | Rings; Vintage and Modern Design 

These photos were taken on Black Friday! I had actually gotten this kimono at The Laundry Room right before I met up with Liz to shoot. I actually really like how it looks with these bell bottoms, which I also got from TLR. Who, by the way, are having a cyber Monday sale which you all should check out. Literally my favorite boutique at the moment. They carry brands such as Nasty Gal, Mink Pink, and more. These pants are my absolute favorite.

How was y'alls holiday?

P.S. this KarmaLoop contest is still on, and I'd be so grateful if you guys would vote for me here!

Little Cat's face in this is ridiculous.

First selfie with my new iPhone 5s. lol


Little Cat sitting upright in my lap... What a weirdo.

Finally got my leopard shark leg piece colored in! Thanks to J Esparza

Finally got some rain, and then fog the next morning.


Megan and I!

I have so busy lately. Started a new job (which so far I am loving). It just tends to create a problem with trying to take outfit photos, especially what with daylight savings and it getting dark so early now (I've always despised this). So, I figured I'd throw together a little Instagram update with some shots from the past week.
The highlights? First, I got my leg piece finished, and I am so so happy with how it came out. It's at that terribly itchy stage in the healing process now. Pretty sure that's the worst part ever. Then on Saturday, my best friend, Megan, and I went up to Walnut Creek to see our friends in Hrvrd and Night Verses play a show. Such great bands and fun guys. I'd seriously recommend checking them out. How are all you guys doing?

Here's Hrvrd's latest music video, to make it easy on ya all.

P.S. - Karmaloop is running a contest for a chance to model for them. I would be forever grateful if you guys would vote for me HERE!

Love you all!

I'm Alive!

Top; Vera Wang for Kohl's | Pants; H&M | Jacket; hand me down | Boots; Doc Martens via Nasty Gal

Like everyone else and their moms, I have been incredibly sick the past week. It started with a sore throat, and just kept progressing until I ended up with bronchitis. Oh, the joy! But fear not! I have been on antibiotics the past four days and am now a functional human being once again (thank God!). This outfit is actually from a couple weeks back, as I have been far to ill to even think about leaving my house until the past couple days. 
On another note, what the heck is up with California?! It's mid November and still in the 70's... Where's the rain and cold weather?! Man.

Hope you all are healthier than I've been lately!

Photos by Megan Lane

These were taken last Sunday on my 25th birthday! It's really weird to think that I'm a quarter of a century now. Time has gone by so fast, I don't feel like I'm this old already!! But anyway, spent my birthday with my best friend Megan, who also shot these images for me. I'm just really excited that we can finally start to wear sweaters here in California. It still hasn't cooled off as much as I would like, but I guess this is better than not cooling off any at all. Actually now that I think about it, it's kinda nice to be able to wear a sweater and not worry about having to wear a jacket over that. I guess it's a love/hate thing, haha.
Tomorrow Megan and I are going up to Sacramento to see The Chariot on their farewell tour. This will be the third time I've seen them, and Megan's first and last time. That's kind of depressing. I'm excited though, these guys always put on an exceptional show.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekends!

Skin Care: Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub

I was sent this Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub to try and review, and boy, did I fall in love.
This scrub contains pieces of pumice, a volcanic rock, to exfoliate the skin. I use it once, sometimes twice a week when I really want to pamper myself. This scrub definitely exfoliates and renews the skin. I like to use it after right after shaving in the shower, it seems as though I don't get as much razor burn that way. I love how fresh and smooth my skin feels after use. I always put on lotion once getting out of the shower then, as my skin absorbs it better after using this scrub (ya know, what with all the dead skin bits being sloughed off during use).
My skin always feels so much better after using Perlier's scrub. This is definitely something I'll be purchasing once I run out of the tub that I have! So in love.

All my readers can also get $5 off their Perlier purchase on using the code iFabbo5

Music Monday//Bad & The Ugly

I need to start doing more music posts on here, I think. This here is San Diego based band, Bad & The Ugly, whom just released their debut EP, "Skin & Bones", a few days ago. I haven't stopped listening since I purchased it. Describing themselves as "alertnafolk," Bad & The Ugly can be compared to the like of City & Colour. This band is the brain child of their singer, Nate. Him and Tyler are both former members of hardcore band, A Shattered Hope, and I'm actually so excited that Nate decided to go in this direction with his new project. 
Here's the first song they revealed before releasing the EP.

If you like what you here, you can purchase their album on iTunes here!

Cut-A-Thon For Charity

The salon I work at, Revolver Hair Studio, had a Cut-A-Thon at the beginning of the month in honor of it being Breast Cancer Awareness month. All of the proceeds during the event were donated to City Of Hope, to help raise awareness. I told you all I'd have the photos from the event eventually, and here they are!

Here's the whole Revolver crew!

Dress; Rave | Cardigan; Forever 21 | Pants; Azkara

Paul Mitchell the School actually sent of over some of their student to help out and do manicures and pedicures during the event to raise even more. It was definitely a team effort, and I'm glad to work with such amazing girls.
Cancer awareness is very dear to me, being as several people in my family, and my best friend have dealt with the struggles of cancer, myself included. My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, I had an aunt pass away due to liver cancer, and I myself am also a cancer survivor.
Thanks to everyone to helped out/supported and everyone who came in to get services done. This wouldn't have been possible without you all!

Dress; MinkPink via ASOS | Jacket; HM | Boots; Doc Martens via Nasty Gal

I have been seeing these smock dresses all over lately, and love it! Finally decided to go for it and got this one by MinkPink. Pair with the faux leather jacket from HM and these floral Doc Martens, it's the perfect early fall outfit! Little Cat decided she wanted to join in on these photos, as you can see. So, I got rid of the purple hair and went back to black, with a few blonde slices. I miss the purple, but it was just too much of a mess and would stain everything!
Life has been really good lately, and this week should be a fun one. I'll be down in LA a few days this week! Wednesday and Thursday to see City & Colour with Lacey, and then next Sunday to see Okkervil River with Justus!
Being as it's breast cancer month, the salon I work at did a cut-a-thon to which all the proceeds went to charity. We had a photographer come in to shoot the event, so I will have those up later this week!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!
