You may have been following the progress of my home redesign project with Homepolish on Instagram in between all the palm tree and hydration shots. Maybe? Well they took on my bedroom and dining room which they were presented with in a state in between bare and in disarray. And brought to a place half beach bungalow half fluffy minimalism. I love the mix of neutrals and shots of patterns to break everything up, so much that I don’t even miss my utterly white asylum of yore. Thank you to my decorator Orlando Soria and Homepolish for bringing everything together. Next up is the dining room!

I’ve always associated Malin+Goetz’s rum scent with the Soho Grand – finally had the clairvoyance to realize it could exist outside a hotel.

Last month at the beautiful Parker Hotel in Palm Springs. Most similar place to Wonderland that I’ve been. Note that they could teach seminars in amenities curation.

A good chunk of my beauty routine is NARS, specifically the Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park, Nico blush (least offensive and most subtle sheen award), and pretty much all shades of The Multiple. I haven’t had too much experience with their foundations but they sent me their latest formula, the Radiant Cream Compact Foundation to try out and I haven’t let it too far out of my reach since, and not just cause I like staring at the compact now and then all oversized and luxurious. It goes on feeling almost like a moisturizer and the finish is dewy and light, perfect for the 100% of us that are deathly afraid of looking all matte like movie vampires. Check it out here!

This is how you’ll find me puttering about my house on Sunday mornings engaging in a healthy routine of torturing Kumo, glorifying in messy sheets, and checking on the plant life in my backyard in an uneducated way. This Stone Cold Fox piece is so beautiful and lazy day relevant, I forgot how much I’m all about things that are oversized and backless. And before you say it, he’s the opposite of possessed, which to be precise is having the personality of a stuffed animal that was brought to life. But you know what, I know you’re not convinced, it’s ok.

I’ve been in beautiful Morocco for almost a week now, I can’t wait to share photos of everything I’ve seen and done here. I have never been more continuously awestruck and am maybe on the verge of losing the ability to process beauty properly. These shots were taken the day I left playing dressup while packing – love this little suede suit from Topshop’s festival collection!
