A beautiful mess.
Birthday blueberry hand pies coming your way tonight @kaseymennie!

Today I bought some plants to brighten up the apartment & treated myself to a hand-blended fragrance. Monday for the win.

Mondays off are my fav. Enjoying a slow morning, then off to the Art Institute.

Friday evening goals achieved: vinyasa/yin class at @zenyogagarage + cooking up @bonappetitmag's pork shoulder with pineapple & sesame broccoli for 1...or dinner for a week + listening to Frank Ocean's 'blonde' album + enjoying a @lushcosmetics face mask + drinking wine and watching a movie in my pjs. Great tunes, delicious meal, zen'd out. Happy weekend!

Never thought I'd be able to hammock on my rooftop during a Chicago winter #globalwarming

exploring new trails this weekend

Family selfie. So much fun exploring San Fran this weekend!

"The mammoth comes from a time and place that we cannot ever fully understand. Despite its scientific reality, it has attained an almost mythical status and I wanted to play with these ideas of legend, history and science by gilding the skeleton and placing it within a monolithic gold tank. It's such an absolute expression of mortality, but I've decorated it to the point where it's become something else, I've pitched everything I can against death to create something more hopeful, it is gone but not forgotten." -@damienhirst

yoga on the beach at sunset tonight thanks to @freehandmiami

Still dreaming about last night's dinner at Alter. It's been so fun to explore the Miami culinary scene with @akalyna and @happyheidijean these past few days. Never a bad meal when we're together!

I could really get used to Miami...where sunsets are enjoyed lounging in your robe while drinking frozen rose
