A few things she cannot live without

She is head over heels with all things organic, obsessed with avocados and all things coconut especially Burt's Bees coconut chapstick! She adores traveling, especially by the sea or mountainside, and is kinda obsessed with all things cream, off-white, pink, baby-blue, or sage! She is such a hopeless romantic and absolutely adores capturing candid, emotional, romantic, elegant, and airy, imagery. A few other things she cannot live without would be Magnolia Rouge, the Starbucks Green Tea Latte, her Louis Vuitton Speedy, anything pink by Kate Spade, her passport, laughing too hard, and her collection of film cameras!
