GUYS, I'm slacking. I'm sorry. It's the middle of the month and I'm just now posting a March mood board.

Month 3 vibes:

-slouchy/menswear-inspired silhouettes

-getaways (take a weekend to road trip somewhere! Do it in the name of mental spring cleaning)

-skincare skincare skincare (Summer is almost here for us in the Northern Hemisphere - let's prep our skin for those harsh rays of sun and make sure we keep our faces fresh and protected)



February - the month that has Valentine's Day in it. Yep. The month I've always spent accepting the fact that I'm alone and will spend the 14th like any other day, while other adorable couples go on cute dates and do whatever else cute couples do.

But you know what? Fuck it. A lot of the time, Valentine's Day is basically a day that makes every single person feel bad. Apparently some people even throw anti-Valentine's Day parties?

Valentine's Day is about love. While many of us hope to find that one person with whom we can completely be ourselves, it's also okay to be single. So let's spend Valentine's Day loving ourselves instead of feeling bad about the fact that we aren't cuddled up on the couch with a significant other, watching some rom com with a freshly-gifted bouquet of roses on the counter and a box of artisan chocolates in our laps. Who says you need someone else to do all of those things?

Treat yo self.

Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers. Seriously, it's amazing what some fresh blooms can do to brighten up your day. Go to your favorite cupcake shop and buy that red velvet cupcake you've been denying yourself in the name of New Years resolutions. Put on your favorite movie and buy yourself some lingere that makes you feel sexy. Order takeout from your favorite restaurant. Postmates is a beautiful thing, my friends.

Love yourself. 


Mood Board: December


We're done with the obstacles known as Halloween and Thanksgiving, and are now in December, aka Christmas month!!! I'm not religious, and it's not that I love Christmas because of the presents or anything. It's more about that warm and fuzzy feeling I get when I start seeing string lights adorning all the houses in the neighborhood, and when shops change their display windows out to feature pine trees, gift boxes, and everything else we've come to associate with the holiday.

For December, I'm feelin glitter. And light pink. Slick hair and natural beauty. There's no need to pile on layers of makeup when you're also bundling yourself up with all that outerwear...not that I'm really doing much layering, seeing as I'm in LA where the coldest it gets is the low 50's, but I still stand by my statement.

Now all I need is a boo to have holiday movie marathons and cuddle with while we guzzle hot chocolate. 


Some snapshots of people/places/zines/websites I've been inspired by lately:

1. Rachel Nguyen aka @thatschic

I forgot exactly how, but I recently discovered

Rachel's YouTube channel

and immediately fell in love with her personality, effortless style and incredible creativity. I have since watched ALL of her videos and have read a good deal of her blog posts as well. Her are some of my favorite bits of inspo from her:


2. i-D Magazine

I need to start buying more magazines. They're so just expensive!! Luckily, i-D has some sick stuff on YouTube as well, so you can be inspired without spending the $15-$20 a good fashion magazine costs. They have a huge variety of content - everything from avant garde fashion videos, to spoof versions of city guides. Here are some my favorites:

3. My Tumblr

I've been on Tumblr since I was a Freshman in High School. Proof: my first url was "a-light-at-the-end." Yup.

Once a blog where I reposted pictures of doodled-on starbucks frappuccino cups and cliche teen couples, my Tumblr has since become more refined and is now a platform through which I gather a lot of fashion/art/literary inspiration.

4. My Pinterest

I used to be bat-shit


obsessed with Pinterest. I probably spent five hours a day on it. Over the years, I've gone from using this platform to collect an insane variety of recipes, to using it to archive other things like wishlists, "home-spo," and DIY projects. If you're as obsessed with organization (at least when it comes to social room is a mess) as I am, you would probably really appreciate my account. Pictured below are just a few of the 68 (I didn't even realize how many I had until now...Christ...) boards I have.

Hope this post (and the links I provided) gives you at least some inspiration! Let me know if you have any other go-to platforms you use when you're in a creative funk x
