STYLE | Up Against the Wall

One thing I have learned this year is that camouflage is my default. Who knew when I purchased this coat on a whim at the local Salvation Army in Casa Grande, Arizona, that I would get so much mileage out of it. Camouflage is not a pattern I would think of as a basic...

BEAUTY | In the Sun

Oh what fun it is to be in the sun... until it's not. Speaking as a person who has endured sun stroke more times than I should have, the sun can be your friend for a certain amount of time. While I would suggest a hat and ample bouts in a shaded area, it's still...

STYLE | Down By the Beach

Can we take a moment to appreciate how insanely blue the skies were while I was on the coast? They were so piercing blue, they rivaled the colour of the ocean. Blue on blue on blue for as far as the eye can see. Right around this spot, I was swimming with a giant gold...
