Lady in the Garden! ft. Natasha

By | Fashion, Uncategorized | No Comments

We went to the gardens back in autumn. Nice weather, beautiful nature views. Natasha said the garden is better in the spring. I can’t imagine how beautiful it must be then because it was so breathtaking even when nature was supposed to be withering. We saw a man clearly on something basically groping the trees… or maybe I’m being cynical and he was just that fascinated by the beauty of Descanso Gardens.

I really love this shoot. Especially the shots of her looking like a goddess/queen in the lily pad garden. Those greens really make her look like an angel.

Look out on my Instagram: I will be posting photos my friend Rigo took on film. Film vs. digital… can we just get along?

Wild Belle! Lovers Rock <3

By | Music | No Comments

Our favorite thing to do as a couple is go to San Diego. It’s not very original or new. It’s where we met. It’s where we fell in love. It just makes sense cause symbolism is important to me. We went to San Diego to see one of my favorite bands, which my partner actually likes! I mean, I like including him in the things I like to do but honestly, I wouldn’t ask him to go to a Lady Gaga show with me cause I think he would really regret San Diego if I did. I’m glad he likes them cause the night before we drove to San Diego, we went to their show at The Zebulon. Saw them two nights in a row, yes. Hey, second time we got to have our favorite Mexican seafood so it was a win win win win win.

Itinerary

We stopped at Searsucker Del Mar for drinks beforehand
Then we went to Oscar’s in Downtown SD 
Finally, Avolution Fest – I’m just gonna say the festival was incredibly small and not what I expected but loved not having the obstructed view of the stage provided by the guy in the hat at The Zebulon

Wild Belle describes themselves as “Lovers Rock.” Pretty accurate. I love their subject matter and their sound, but it could be all noise and bullshit, I would still listen to it if it had Elliot’s saxophone and Natalie’s voice. I never even knew I wanted that combination ’till I heard of them. However, it does help a lot that the lyrics resonate with my endless love of true romance and what it signifies in our lives.

I found them while looking for similar artist to Phantogram on last.fm. The video for “Keep You” is so goofy and unique. I’m sure a lot of people have a lot of “little men” to weep about. All their music videos have that home-made-maybe-i-should-work-on-my-art-too feeling. My dream job is to make music videos so that truly inspires me.

Gin Wigmore! @ The Troubadour

The Venue 

First time at The Troubadour in Hollywood. The gist is parking was a nightmare but there is parking if you walk about 10 minutes; the venue is small so wherever you sit you will get a good view; drinks are decently priced and stiff; good location for an after party; there is a cool cool upstairs area with a bar and seats. Intimate and  romantic venue. The Smashing Pumpkins had played a show the night before. The bartender said they played for hours. They had to also confiscate everyone’s phone for the performance.
