These are from that day we spent down in Marina Del Rey. Rainbow sherbert, sleepy pelicans, sunsets, people watching, cold breeze in the heat of Summer. Such a beautiful day!
I just got done running a bunch of errands and trimming my hair. I ended up buying this Kerastase elixir because I loved how my hair felt after putting it on and blow drying! Smells really good, too. Kind of pricey but I think it’s worth it (if you have dry hair). I chemically straighten my hair so I need as much moisture as possible.
After the trim, I went and had coffee alone, killing time before picking up a lens for the wedding we’re shooting tomorrow. It was nice to sit alone in the window light, drinking coffee and prepping for tomorrow.
Well, have a great weekend! : )
35mm / 4th of July
Got my rolls back today. I forgot there were photos from the 4th of July on one of them! Feels like such a long time ago, a lot has happened since then.
My sister left and my good friend that i’ve known since the 2nd grade is staying at our place tonight. Looking forward to catching up and having a drink (possibly).
Have a good night.
Happy Monday! / Instax from last night in Chinatown. My sister’s last dinner in LA
My sister was in town over the weekend for my birthday. We ended up going to Umami Burger for lunch! I was so excited to finally try their burgers after hearing so much about it. I ordered sweet potato fries with a burger and a coffee–everything was really yummy.
After lunch we shopped on 3rd street in Santa Monica and drove along the coast, stopping at a little beach for a few hours. It was nice and relaxing, I don’t think my birthday could’ve gone any better. We ate in Malibu and had drinks then went home exhausted.
I have a few rolls to develop tomorrow. Hopefully will get them back soon. : )
Instax photos from Sunday / Marina Del Rey
I took my Instax with me to Marina Del Rey. The original plan was to go to Venice and take a walk, but the area we wanted to visit had zero parking. We got some ice cream, sat on the the benches facing the ocean and watched the pelicans and seagulls and sailboats while the sun went down.
I’ve been craving blood orange cocktails since our ACE Hotel visit. We had blood orange cocktails everyday by the pool and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. I found a recipe that looked good (here) and was thinking of trying it out tomorrow or when my sister arrives on Wednesday. Now to find blood oranges…
Ps- Doesn’t Ron’s shadow look strange in the last photo? Almost cartoonish.
Hello! It’s been a while! SO much has been going on with me this month. I had to deal with a lot of things the week before and the week OF Polaroid week, so I almost feel as if I didn’t really get to look through all of the photos this time around. I wish ‘Roid Week was more than once a year.
These photos were taken on July 4th. We picked up some sparklers that didn’t quite look like sparklers and a few smoke bombs and sat outside, talking and burning them. It was a nice day.
I ended up going to Marina Del Rey this past weekend. We just hung out on the docks and watched the sleepy Pelicans rock back and forth on the fishing boats.
I’m going to attempt a drive to the photolab today. I haven’t driven in almost 2 weeks because I hurt my wrist. Turning the wheel is extremely painful, along with opening doors and locks and washing my hair and pulling my seat belt over me. I’ve been doing stretches and it seems to be helping though, this weekend has actually been good and the pain isn’t as bad.
In other happy news, my sister is coming to visit on Wednesday! I’m so excited! She’s coming up to celebrate my birthday on Friday. EEK! FRIDAY! Where’d the month of July go?
Hope you’re all well.
Ps- I posted a wedding blog. If you’re interested, you can check it out here.
Polaroid Week / Day 1
Sorry there hasn’t been much activity here lately. A lot going on back home that i’ve been dealing with over the past few days. Hopefully everything works out for the better!
Positive note: It’s ‘Roid Week!
What are you up to this weekend? I’ve been so busy with things lately, Sunday is the only day I ever get to really relax. Sundays are so nice, aren’t they?
The photos above were taken last weekend. We drove through the mountains and were so high up that we could see clouds below us. We parked the car and looked down into the valley for about 20 minutes and explored some tiny trails around the area. It was so quiet and peaceful and the sun felt nice after driving along the coast.
Hope your weekend is a fun one.

Sunday BBQ / Testing out tripod at night
These are from the day I hung out with Karleen. We had brunch and walked around the neighborhood shooting photos in 90 degree heat and I got a parking ticket for going over the time limit! Lesson learned on that one. It was a lot of fun, I always have a nice time hanging out with her.
