Editorial 03: A Natural State

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 February 26th, 2016|Beauty, Editorial|

I can't even type. I can't explain what runs through my blood when I have a vision for an editorial and Land EXECUTES. I often dream of these misty wonderlands. Where the grass is green, the flowers are in bloom and the mist creates water droplets. I don't know where my fascination with water droplets [...]

Editorial 02: Gloss or Grain

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 February 5th, 2016|Beauty, Editorial|

Whenever I'm inspired by magazine editorials, I'm always interested in the medium in which they're produced.

One of our favorite weekend hangs has to be at Lake Merritt in Oakland. On top of the cutest and best restaurants in the East Bay, we love to just sit and people watch. One thing I admit that has changed for us since moving from Florida is just to see the daily people interactions [...]

Monthly Favorites: May 2015

I have to admit that working at Sephora is both amazing and pocket-draining. When I'm not talking to a client about this face mask she's about to purchase that "removed a dark mark she's had for years" I'm listening in on co-workers naming their go-to mascaras and lipsticks. Every corner I turn there is something [...]

I am so grateful to know and love Nikol from Nikol Elaine Makeup Artistry. She is not only a friend and sweetheart but she is one kick-ass makeup artist. I love her makeup skills for two reasons; 1.
