Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Happy Holidays!

Today I thought I’d share some “festive” photos that I’ve taken this past month before the holidays pass us by in the blink of an eye. I didn’t get to all of my to-do list but we did make it to Balboa Island and we got to see the Newport Boat parade – both which were so fun! I also did a holiday outfit shoot for Glitter Guide this month which I had a great time doing. I styled 3 outfits with Gap Factory and we shot it over by Lido Marina Village which is a must-visit if you live in the area or are passing by. It’s the cutest little area filled with pretty shops, great drinks, food and a harbor view. All the outfit photos were shot but the super talented Ariane Moshayedi.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Lots of love!

Hello there! Checking in with some snaps from the past few weeks. Since we are less than two weeks away from heading back east, we are busy bees trying to get ahead of the game and get prepared for our big day. Hope you’ve been well! Thanks for stopping by today!
