Can we talk about…

Aveda’s Spring 2014 lookbook? 

Image

First off, it’s amazing.

Image

It’s called Culture Clash, which fits perfectly.

Image

 

The line mixes this really futuristic and architectural hair/makeup with these feminine lines and layered textures.

Image

 

I’m impressed. I feel like this collection is really shaping their brand into something more high-end. 

Image

 

Definitely the best collection they’ve ever done.

Image

Plus, who doesn’t love mixed prints more than I do?

My friend Leslie Limberg, an amazing singer/theatre queen/now hair+makeup stylist (to be), asked me to model for her in the Aveda 2014 Catwalk for Water Scholarship Competition. I obviously said yes and we had hella fun. She not only dyed, cut and styled my hair, but also styled the outfit—which was inspired by Aveda’s 2014 lookbook.

Image

She hit the nail on the head with that one, huh?

Can We Talk About…

Cool LA florists? 

Business is seriously booming (or, should I say, blooming) for florists in bright, sunny California. 

If you know me, you know that I have this secret dream of dropping everything and becoming a florist. I literally just want to quit everything and stuff myself in a greenhouse where my only friends are peonies, muscaris, succulents, rhaphiolepis and hellebores.

Since we’re finally starting to see spring, and basically everyone I know is about to get married, I thought it only necessary to let you know about these awesome flower magicians:

Moon Canyon

Kristen Caissie and Amy Lipnis make up the kickass team that is Moon Canyon.

Image

Their stuff is very detail oriented. I love that they’re not only all about their product (DUH) but also into curating everything surrounding their product. Their brand is consistent and their “accessories” are always beautiful. 

ImageImageImageImage

And their wreaths are even cooler. 

Image

They do tons of workshops, some recently in partner with my favorite LA gal, Bri Emery, in her new studio.

Twig and Twine

“Heather Williams, a Los Angeles based floral and event designer, is the brain and brawn behind Twig & Twine. She grew up wandering her mother’s and grandmother’s gardens, forming an early appreciation for the lovely blooms that grew from the ground each season.”

Puffy pinks, beautiful white and pal blues, soft yellows! Heather is all about that feminine touch.

She mostly does weddings…obviously!

And then there is Yasmine Mai.

She’s my favorite. 

Image

Image

Isn’t she just a doll? Vintage, long dresses. Darling arrangements. Elegance and grace. It kills me!

She also teaches workshops regularly! #sharethatflowerpower
