The Luckiest

  • 07.24.2014
Today, according to Susan Miller, is to be the luckiest day of the year. The luckiest?! Of the year?! Yep. So in the spirit of the stars and going for what you want here's a little rally cry to get you going... "Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what

The Secret Things (and a brief tour of Málaga)

  • 07.22.2014
"I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone." ~ Rilke Hailee asked me this morning, at oh, 5 a.m. via a quick FB chat if I ever sleep in Spain. My answer: "not well" ~ which thinking about it, doesn't seem to make good sense. This place is quiet and serene, and all of the stuff that should lend to

It Was All Yellow

Cheers to the weekend you guys! So glad it's finally Friday! My baby sister Chelle is flying in from Paris this evening and I absolutely cannot wait to see her. I hope you all have beautiful plans too! I'm heading to the beach for the day - after pulling quite a few 10-15 hour work days finishing up the

Travel Diary: Gibraltar

"Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky..."  ~ Cesare Pavese I don't think I've ever felt that more than in Gibraltar.... And finally, I'm so happy to relive the experience by sharing these photos from my trip there a few weeks ago. The Rock of Gibraltar, on a clear d

Buenos días mis amores! It's early Monday morning here in el Costa del Sol, España. It was a gorgeous weekend full of adventure.

"I must be a mermaid, I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living." ~ Anais Nin Follow @ouiwegirl I'm a few days away from finishing this book...I'm pouring everything into it, and while I'm at it becoming one with the sea and channeling the muse Anais.

Tales of the Alhambra

  • 07.07.2014
Last week I went on a road trip. Well, two. The first to Gibraltar (more on that later this week) and the second to Granada to see the Alhambra. On the road trip to Granada I road alone in the back seat, headphones on prepared to take in the scenery of the drive through the Spanish countryside. Honestly, as the roa

A Vast Glow

  • 07.03.2014
“I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted.” ― Jack Kerouac One more day until the 4th of July celebrations begin back home. No fireworks here, but perhaps a Cava toast or two. I'll be under a pink sky, by the shore of the cold sea. The later it gets in the day here,

Beachy Keen

  • 07.01.2014
Today marks 3 weeks since I arrived in Spain. Every morning I wake up fully inspired by how beautiful this place is. I'm not taking a second of it for granted (if you follow on insta you know I'm documenting so much). My time has been spent writing by day, and since it stays light so late, beaching or hanging i
