Photo Diary, first half of 2015

You know how “lifestyle” and fashion bloggers go to fancy hotels and show all the high-end traveling they do and the extremely well-staged food and accessories photos? Well, this is not that. This is just life, no time to edit.

I have been away for a while focusing on other projects, so I know I have a lot of pending directory listings and collaboration requests that are still awaiting response, but they are coming!

Living in a small city has it’s pros and cons, San Luis Obispo is one of the most desirable places to live, so it’s very expensive and awesome; I like bigger places but SLO is great because you don’t need a car to get around. This year, we traveled quite a bit within California and we went to Costa Rica, we  hope to be ready for a bit Euro trip in 2016. I also made new friends and that’s possibly my biggest accomplishment since moving here over 2 years ago. Also, in this first half of 2015, I became a fan of:

  • Elon Musk
  • SpaceX
  • Snapchat (follow me: yarinav)
  • Balenciaga city bags
  • Gianvito Rossi shoes
  • Giuseppe Zanotti shoes
  • Having one good bracelet that I don’t ever take off
  • The Hard Thing About Hard Things
  • Uber

For now, I simply wanted to show some pictures that illustrate the first half of this year.

Oh, yeah, and I went full vegetarian/vegan this year. I am not fully vegan because I love cheese and I’m not letting that go completely, also eggs for special occasions are ok. Now that I’m back from working a lot on my company, I will post more but shorter updates. I also got a new lighting set for my birthday, so I’m going back to the intense fashion pics soon. Hang in there.
