I truly believe the best photo spots are when you are traveling and the lighting is perfect. However, in LA I love shooting in my neighborhood (West Hollywood), Venice, and Malibu.
How did you get into influencing?
I started my blog as a way to share my fashion, beauty, and lifestyle finds. Over time and after working with many more brands, I've become much more intentional about the type of content I create.

I try not to edit my photos too much and focus more on natural light.
What is one aspect that makes your style stand out?
It's attainable yet polished. I'm a firm believer in taking your looks from 9 to 5 to happy hour or dinner.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
The next trips I'm currently planning are to Italy and Japan. I'm dying to go to Morocco and Greece as well!
What do you think will be the biggest trend of the summer?
Neons, tie-dye, and more animal prints. I'm all about a good print right now!
