Last night I was with my friend Summer, and we were discussing Joy. I think it is interesting, because a lot of time we think of Joy as being something that we feel only when things are all lined up and perfect. For example, a day could be going AMAZING:
On time to work
Beautiful moments in the trees with people
annd then one thing, just one can SUCK THE JOY FROM US.
We all have that one thing. The one dark shadow that creeps up on us in life. Some of us, its personal judgement of how we think we should look, or be or act. Others, its that negative person, or the media.
SO Here is the Deal: I challenge YOU!!!! In those moments, I CHALLENGE you to:
STILL WEAR JOY.
I know you are thinking I am crazy, but here is the scoop.
We will always have a million and a half things, that are so willing to suck all of our joy from our bodies and souls.
But guess what, there is real love constant and flowing in this world. Tap into it in those moments.
I am not saying fake it, I am saying, count the blessings.
AS a naked stylist, I wear the Joy. I put on my boots, or wear those amazing sun glasses. and smile with the joy that I am me.
People will find your style so much more unique and interesting when you wear joy, than the latest fashion.

Hello Everyone. I definitely have been gone quite some time! Life has been happening quite fast these past couple of months! I have officially graduated from UCSB (woo hoo!) and moved up to Santa Cruz, so that I could save some money, while working full time at Kruz Kids summer camp, which has been PHENOMENAL! I absolutely fell in love with the fact that my job is:
Fun and Games! I am paid to play and act like a kid
New and Exciting, everyday is an adventure!
Which brings me to my new space of life.... just living each day, day by day. New and Exciting things approach you when this happens!
Just this past week I have discovered some amazing things about myself:
1. I am an enthusiastic Tambourine player
2. I can sing
3. I LOVE kickboxing
4. Zumba makes me happy, and look like a dork
5. Serving others, really can serve yourself
6. Being a vegan is easy in Santa Cruz
7. It's a carrot, its a healthy treat! May be my favorite song a kid has ever taught me!
Anyway I am hoping to get back to blogging regularly! Please look for me and my NEW FOUND INSPIRATION!
