Suburbia on the Sea

Dana Point is a beach town in Orange County. It’s a big surf spot and it feels like suburbia on the sea. Despite the odd, creepy feeling that the burbs give me–this place has some beautiful beaches. Here are the views from Dana Point Lookout: Now for some beer brewed in state at Salt Creek…

Cancún

I recently took a quick weekend trip to Cancún to celebrate my cousin’s wedding. It was absolutely breathtaking. If you’re visiting, I urge you to get up for the sunrise–even if you want to sleep in–it’s well worth it. Because of the white sands, the water reflects the sky so brilliantly.

A Day in South Beach

If you have 24 hours to kill in Miami, here’s a few suggestions around South Beach: Take a dip in the ocean along the 4 miles of beach. Kill two birds with one stone, grab brunch and watch a drag show at the same time at The Palace. Stroll along Ocean Drive to take in…

Nags Head, North Carolina. Honestly, I’d never heard of it until a few years ago, and now I make an annual visit their with friends. I’ll tell you what I had heard of though–Roanoke Island. Remember?

And it’s getting more and more absurd (especially as a photographer) to carry…

Is it normal to buy a pair of honeymoon sneakers? Who knows, but I did it anyway. It was both of our first times in Mexico, and I wanted a pair of shoes fit for our luna de miel. Roshe Runs with a tropical print it was! Puerto Vallarta was the place—the very, very hot…

sand dune dancin’

Michigan City in Indiana, you look pretty. It’s such a quaint little town, right on Lake Michigan. There’s a lot of sand and it’s beautiful. Isn’t it funny that giant piles of sand can be fun to look at? My skirt and jacket are from Anthropologie and my sneakers are from NTC Lincoln Park. These…

Roshe sold sea shells by the sea shore.

Inspired by beach-ness, these Roshe Runs are perfect. Deep royal blue like the ocean and electric yellow like the sun. Roshe Runs are so comfortable, you think you’re walking on happy rainbow clouds. For real though. Grab a pair.
