Things I like

Bohemian Dream is my tumblr summer mood board. Its filled with dream catchers, fairy-like ladies and psychedelic landscapes.

I saw this video on evencleveland and my jaw dropped. Its like a real life Up. 
Especially now that all of the dandelions are out I really am visually in love with this instillation, it almost looks magnetic.
I am an avocado fanatic if we could turn into what we eat too much of I would totally be an avocado. But it wasn't until recently I discovered the wonderful taste of avocado with honey on toast! Check out the recipe for Simply the Best Breakfast Ever? and give it a try, it will blow your mind. (I like to add red chili flakes too,for an extra kick)
I really like this collaboration. I have been a fan of the Dirty Projectors ever since my friend Adam introduced me to them and I first feel in love with Major Lazer with his song Pon de floor. When I heard this What So Not Remix I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Two artist I would never had expected together, but so good.
I just got a pair of floral print Doc Martens that I love, but when I saw that Docs were teaming up with Liberty London I wanted to hit myself over the head! I guess in some way I can justify owning two pairs of floral print Doc Martens because this collection of shoes and bags is too perfect to pass up.

Spring Rebel

Below are some photos from recent spring weekends through the eyes of my canon rebel. I have been having some wonderfully fun shawty filled weekends at home in the city and at Drew too! Lately, I have always been using my iphone camera I have been neglecting my other cameras, makes me kinda sad. But I am glad me and my rebel have been having some quality time together because you can't beat the detail, color and clarity. Also I love photographing the change of seasons and how our attire and appearance also shifts and adjusts to that change.

Hoop love

Last week a video of my hula hooping was featured on The video is below but you can check out the actual post here where they provide a little bio. I was so excited when I saw it on the site, I can't believe sometimes there was a time I didn't hoop. It has become such an awesome part of my life I am just excited to continue to share the hoop love! Also I made that hula hoop :)

Girls do it better

Lately I have really been into women wearing menswear. There is something mysterious, bold and beautiful about wearing men's clothes and still looking gorgeous. The hat below is perfect.

Fly girl

I really love graffiti art, so when I finally discovered Lady Pink I couldn't believe I had never heard of her until recently. Lady Pink aka Sandra Fabara is one of the most influential female graffiti artists of all time. Lady Pink is Ecuadorian but was raised in Queens, getting her start after her boyfriend was sent back to Puerto Rico after being arrested. She tagged her boyfriends name across New York City as a way to heal her pain, how romantic and badass is that! At age 15 she did graffiti with crews like The Crew 5 and The Public Animals and became the only well known female graffiti artist who could keep up with the boys. She also spent a significant number of years painting NYC subway cars. She is now internationally known for her work and is highly respected in the art world. Her work can be seen at the Whitney, Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum. Lady Pink still does mural workshops with teens and lectures college students. Below are photos of her work. I love learning about female artists who broke ground for future graffiti artists through their talent, personal style and perseverance. If I had my own house I would want her to paint all over it.
