Some of you may not know this but Monday to Friday, I am the marketing manager and online editor at the boutique, Calexico. This past week we rented a unique space for one of our weekly shoots. The apartment was decorated by the owner who happened to be a furniture designer and architect. He has a modern aesthetic to design and makes very interesting pieces. It all went perfectly with the vibe I was aiming for and allowed us to showcase all the amazing basics and essential pieces Calexico has to offer. It was my first mini campaign that I styled (with some help from the model who is also my sudo-assistant), shot, and edited. I love the colour tones in all the photos and the moodiness of the lighting. Cant wait to continue posting all my work outside of just the shoots I do for myself!

{Just some of my moody inspiration of sun, sand and surf}

As a lot of you may know, I grew up in California for most of my life. After I turned 18 I hopped on a plane and moved to Arizona for 4 years to attend ASU. Then after I graduated, I spent a brief stint back in San Francisco before I packed my bags once again to move to Australia. Point is, I’ve spent my entire life in places that are key destination spots for sun, surf, or holiday weather. While this has been a luxury I would never trade in, it comes with a risk of skin damage and dangers like skin cancer. I know that I spent YEARS in Arizona laying out by my pool with no sunscreen on. Now that I am older (and wiser) I have developed a greater desire to protect my skin when I am in the sun (you only have one face!). Since being in Australia, which has one of the strongest rays of sun in the world, I know this from the experience of painful sunburns, it has been even more important for me to put on sunscreen. As annoying as sunscreen is to put on and it’s ability to keep us from getting as bronzed as we would all really like, it’s really the only thing that has the ability to fully protect our skin from the sun!

NIVEA has created an amazing video on the coast of Australia using a ultraviolet camera. The camera allowed people to actually look deep into their skin and see what damage has occurred from over sun exposure. The video also shows just what your skin looks like with a layer of sunscreen on it, which looks actually pretty rad when you can truly see the effect sunscreen has. So, check out this video folks! AND apply lots of sunscreen to your sexy bodies, while also lending a helping hand to your boyfriends, hubbys or just some hot strangers who need a good rub down. When using NIVEA products don’t forget to check the label and use only as directed!
