A little while back, I had the absolute pleasure of spending a weekend with Kia Motors. Now, I must preface this post by saying I am not an auto reviewer (surprise, surprise, ya?). But what I can tell you is I am your everyday city gal who also happens to drive. Of course, one the very many great things about living in San Francisco is that the public transportation is amazing. But, every now and then I cringe when I think about doing my groceries, or getting out of town. For those days, having a car would be an absolute delight. Cue Kia.
The Kia team generously offered to loan me a car for a weekend to test our their new 2014 Sorento. Another thing you need to know about me? I've ALWAYS wanted to drive a big car - an SUV to be exact. So imagine my glee when I found out I'd be driving around town in one? (All smiles on this girl's face.) Aside from being roomy (I mean, hello, this girl can practically roll around in that huge trunk!), the Sorento is counter-intuitive, meaning for driving hazards such as myself (just kidding you guys, safety first), it's got just about everything you need to make your ride that much smoother. For instance, one of my initial hesitations about driving a big car was parallel parking and backing up. Not a problem for the Sorento. Thanks to its rear camera display and backup warning system, backing up was a breeze. Other fancy features? Sure the car has all you necessities - GPS, phenomenal stereo system, impressive fuel efficiency, and push button start (hello, no keys!), but can we talk about the heated front seating? Now you're talking to a girl who loves her warmth - get me in a car that offers heated seating and I'm basically sold (especially when you live in a city like San Francisco and can barely predict its bipolar weather patterns). In a nutshell, the Sorento a dream car for the weekend. Serious talk - by the end of my weekend, all I wanted to do was keep the car. Sadly, stealing is sort of frowned upon, so I had to give it back...
A BIG, big thank you, thank you to the Kia Team for the fabulous weekend - you guys totally rocked my world. For more snaps of my weekend with Kia, stay tuned! Another post headed you way in just a jiffy.

Walked into the room, you know you made my eyes burn.

Remember when I used to blog? Yeah, it still happens. First off, I want to apologize for being so M.I.A. Believe me when I say it's not for a lack of want, rather a lack of time. Lately, I've been a busy bee with both the P's in my life - professional + personal. The great thing with blogging is it helps you capture anything and everything. The tricky thing about blogging is that it helps you capture anything and everything - know what I mean? There's nothing I love more than capturing the moment, but as of late, I've been living in the moment more than capturing it. Nonetheless, with August creeping right around the corner, I'm saying adios to my blogging break and hello to my first love. I've got a ton of posts and projects lined up for you all and I couldn't be more thrilled to share them. Thank you to everyone who has been so patient - I swear I'm a better follow on Insta ;)
The photo above comes from Aliya of the blog Aesthetic.Li. I had the pleasure of working with her last week on some street style shots. Don't you just love the detail pic above? To see all the snaps from our shoot be sure to check out her page!

I had the pleasure of working with talented photog, Melissa on another shoot - one quite different than what you're used to seeing from me. Sometimes it's fun to change things up and wear something a little unexpected. The great thing about fashion is there are always new ways to wear old things. In fact, all of the items I'm wearing in these photos (aside from the borrowed Goorin hats) are all old gems I'm constantly rotating in my closet. And the great thing about working with different photographers? Each one brings out something different in you. Can't wait to show you guys what's next.

We've been experiencing record highs here in San Fran, and for me, there's nothing better than the summer sun. And can I say what a treat it is to actually experience a real "summer" in this city? Some may be looking for a little escape from the heat, but I'm hoping Karl the Fog stays on vacay for as long as possible.
