It’s officially spring as of March 19th. We’re very, very ready for the weather to warm up, but not before some much needed rain in California. Unfortunately, we’ll all be stuck inside for the next couple of weeks, but that makes that springtime sunshine all the sweeter.⠀
What are your plans for the stay-at-home sunshine days?
Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur is a secluded beach known for its purple sand. The purple sand is caused by the mineral garnet. Garnet is in the cliffs above the beach so with wave action and erosion the purple material will eventually wash down to the sandy beach.
There is an area along the 17-mile drive that could not be more aptly named. It’s called the Restless Sea and it’s certainly one of the most, swirling and raging but somehow completely tranquil spots in the world. Two currents choose this spot to come together and churn things up - waves converging and crashing into each in the most perfectly beautiful dance.
On this particular day, the clouds were putting on a show of their own as well as they prepared to add to the raging waters below. I was actually heading over to the Lone Cypress to get a sunset shot of that scene (see my favorite shot of all time below in my Instagram feed), but as we were driving by the Restless Sea, I pulled over, jumped out (sans tripod) and took a couple of quick shots. I was thrilled how this turned out.
Enjoy today’s photo and stay safe.

Something close to my heart, 13-year-old #EmilyShane was tragically killed on the #PacificCoastHighway 10-years ago today. Since then, the family has formed the #EmilyShaneFoundation , which helps kids with learning challenges to become successful students in school and in life. The foundation has been significantly impacted by the #coronavirus (COVID-19), their #WingsOverMalibu#Fundraiser has been postponed, and funds are needed so that when schools re-open, they can hire mentor/tutors to help these at-risk students. Also, while schools are out, many kids who fit the #SEA profile have no wifi or computers, others are falling further behind. They’re asking for your support through their #PassItForward mission.
TO DONATE, Please see click on the @EmilyShaneFoundation
Thanks everyone. Stay safe🦋

Day 5 of Los Angeles goodies bringing you the Santa Monica Pier. This is one of those tourist destinations in LA that’s worth it! Even if you just walk along the pier, it’s beautiful, classic, and there’s always great people watching. Plus the Ferris wheel is a great spot to catch the sunset ☀️ Definitely missing the beach as were all safe inside indefinitely. Swipe for more shots 🤩
Can’t wait to gather all my friends in the car and take a road trip up the coast! Going for a drive is a great de-stresser from being cooped up in a tiny apartment (and the only thing keeping me sane) but I’m missing my friends dearly. I’m very grateful to live a short distance from this gorgeous drive on PCH 🚙💙 Music is “California” by @thelagoonsmusic
These sold out over night!! Thank you all for your support. It has been the craziest and most stressful experience recreating my shop into an online store. I’m grateful for everyone that has offered advice and support. THANK YOU!
I’m excited to say we paid our rent today and electric bill so our little shop that could is safe for one more month!

New York, and the West Coast - this time a couple of years ago.
Do you have what it takes to stay motivated with your workouts during quarantine? Most of us do not, but that’s why we are live on zoom working out together. Don’t do nothing and say” I will wait until this blows over and gyms open back up” that’s a death sentence. Get up and sweat! #gilskickboxinggym

Hello friends, how is it going? We hope you enjoyed our stories yesterday; if you didn't catch them, you still can for a little while. Stay safe and wash your hands! 📸 @thegeminiallure
This #FiveDollarFriday we are raising money for our emergency food fund during the COVID-19 crisis. Turns out these baby sheep eat A LOT of hay (and are totally adorable while doing so).
But it's not just these cuties -- all the Sweet Farm Animal Ambassadors need your help making sure we have enough food on hand during this time. We're trying to keep a month of food in stock at all times, because the supply chain is uncertain. We don't know what they months ahead may look like. Donate here: http://bit.ly/33rrzZA
Bryan test rides the 2014 Sportster 48 that had the deceleration pop issue repaired on last week's #FuelpakFriday . The route takes Bryan on a 70-mile loop through Topanga Canyon, Hwy 101, Las Virgenes/Malibu Canyon, and Pacific Coast Highway.

💄 There’s a lot of talk about the Lipstick effect.
💄This term can be traced back to the Great Depression where the demand for lipstick actually rose.
💄We understand that it is the little things that can make us feel better during times like these.
💄We are here for you virtually and cannot wait to reopen to resume your beauty treatments. 👄❤️
California coasting 🚐🏔 wouldn’t mind going for a quick rip down this highway right about now, just to free the mind and feel the rush of adventure in your face for a hot second, by far my favorite stretch of coast and beach in the state, often overlooked but so stunning, who’s with me...✨

Golden hour strolls 🏖🌊 it really is the best of both worlds on this beach, large towering mountains, cliffside bluffs, and some of the softest sand around, this sleepy little town would be a dream to live in someday, such an underrated gem along the coast, maybe one day...✨
Good morning everyone! I know it’s Tuesday but I’m all out of tips. So instead you guys get another old photo of mine that been re-edited. Probably one of the first photos I took that I thought was really good. 😂
