Hawaii 2017 // Maui + Kauai

Explore

What is there to say about Hawaii? Bri and I had visited for our first time 3 years ago, so I wasn’t expecting to get happily tangled up in the magic of the lush land this time around like a root from the slick + slippery rainforest. I was gladly mistaken. We returned to a place that felt like home + an island that we had spent the last 3 years talking about wanting to explore more. We kept bumping…

My Day As a Porcelain Doll

Wear

Modeling has brought me some serious joy over the past few years. The people I meet, the designers I marvel at, the vision that often times takes a team to bring together. It feels like doing art with a group of brilliant people who all work a different way + standing back at the finished product while everyone agrees, “fuck yeah, that’s awesome, that was it.” When Bri and I decided to visit L.A. to explore and spend time with…
