Battenburg Lace

This lovely dress gracing the cover of Vogue Paris ~ would be the perfect compliment to this vintage Battenburg lace parasol I picked up at a thrift store!!


gazing at this unbridled LOVE always brings a smile to my face!


I am just left speechless at this horrific tragedy that devastated so many areas in Japan yesterday, praying the experts will find a way to contain the nuclear plants that were compromised during the earthquake.

emotional rescue

I haven't felt like posting anything the past couple days because my heart has felt so heavy. Things just don't feel right in my gut and I can't seem to find my way out from under this blanket of sadness.

the mermaid and the dragonfly

Last week I had the opportunity to do an underwater photo shoot with the talented Laguna Beach artist, Roark Gourley. It took me a while to get my "sea~legs" so to say, but now I'm hooked and can't wait to work with him and his talented wife Michelle again! See more Liquescent works @
They made the whole process so much fun and the final images are each so surprising they seem to take on an ethereal quality!

spring blooms

My Mom is visiting this week from New York, and one of our favorite things to do when she is here is visit Roger's Gardens in Newport Beach. So after breakfast we ventured over and I snapped a few glorious blooms that caught my eye!
 This place is by and far my favorite nursery!
