Moonlight Masquerade

"She dances in the moonlight, the haunting glow. She feeds off the darkness, it fills her soul. 
She glitters, and gleams, and haunts, and screams, for tomorrow in the sunshine, this will all be just a dream."

Morning Tea

Rise and shine! The best feeling in the world is a cup of hot tea on a chilly morning! It's not chilly in LA yet, but I can pretend! My current favorite tea is rose black tea with cream and sugar, which this sweater is a PERFECT representation of. I picked it up this weekend at Wasteland as a mega score, and it's already my new favorite thing in my closet.
Also, I took these photos in the midst of getting ready for the day, so excuse the absence of eye makeup.

Steamfaerie Goes to San Francisco

 I found a steamfaerie in the city!

Over Labor Day weekend, Tommy and I embarked on a short but epic adventure/vacation. It was on my bucket list to drive up the coast in a convertible and listen to good music and soak up some sun, and we can now check that off the list! We rented a fancy car and loaded it up and headed up the coast, all the way to San Francisco! Tommy's friends took us in and showed us around, and we had so much fun! We tried to pack lots of adventures into a couple of days, so by the end of the trip we were EXHAUSTED, but it was so worth it! I filmed most of our outings, so stay tuned for an epic vlog style video taking you around the city! Here are all of the pictures I was able to capture, though we did tons more stuff that I didn't have my camera for!
We even got to go sailing on our friend Darin's boat, which was my first time on a boat. It was definitely an experience. One of the nights we were in the city, we dressed up in our fanciest attire and went to "Top of the Mark" which is an incredible lounge at the top of the Mark Hopkin's hotel, with panoramic views of the city! I wish I had been able to bring my camera along, but it doesn't exactly fit in my handbag! We even ate at a carnival themed restaurant, which had a menu consisting of things like a waffle monte cristo, drinks topped with Fun-Dip, and everything you could want to eat at a carnival! Overall, this was definitely a trip to remember, and I can't wait to visit San Francisco again!
