I always keep an extra outfit in the car when I’m visiting my dear friend Angela Izzo. There’s nothing like a casual Wednesday in Los Angeles, running errands all over the city, stopping for a glass of wine mid way through and musing for an impromptu photo shoot. This dreamy Hippie Shake body suit has yet to make it’s debut on stage because I haven’t found the right bottoms yet, but who needs pants, right? Dreamy shoots are Angela Izzo’s specialty and if you’re in the Los Angeles area you must check out her immersive photography workshop, GAZE, this Saturday, May 7th 2022.
Sweet hippie dreams, bunnies!

Her name is Rio and she dances in the sand
Rio, Brazil is undeniably one of my favorites cities I’ve been to. The lush green jungles, cocktails, white sand beaches, the music, and the seemingly innate ability for all women to dance. The kind of dancing that looks so nonchalant but the hips and feet move in the most incredible rhythm and direction. When I arrived at Ashley’s home in Las Vegas for one of our girls’ weekend/photo shoot adventuring trips, she had this vision of shooting the Rio sign at sunset. Obviously the only reasonable thing to wear was this two piece mesh tie-dye set from Adriana Sahar. Negroni in hand and an “ask for forgiveness, not permission” mindset, we managed to place ourselves in the best location for the magic of the Rio sign. Until I can make it back to Rio, Brazil, I’ll continue to dance on rooftops, and take photos in colorful carnival worthy clothing. Saúde!
“And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande”

Setting the mood and intentions with Flores Lane
What a year, right? I’m always one to juggle a million projects and ideas around, but constantly staying busy creating art is what truly makes me happy. While it feels like 2021 has just been a constantly evolving shit show, I did my best to get lost in my art. This past year I finished my first life size commissioned oil painting which has inspired me to create more prints and promote my art more, I got to play with some incredible musicians and make new friends including the Stu Hamm Band, Journey and KYGO, I got to travel domestically (not as much as I normally do, but still very grateful for that), I got to play Red Rocks, see The Stones, made three trips to Joshua Tree (two trips for shows and one for a dear friend’s wedding) and produced a Christmas music video which has been my biggest solo musical production to date. This year is off to a solid start with so many new goals I plan to achieve and I feel like I’ll actually have the time to make them happen! I have plans for new music videos, more paintings and maybe even a children’s book that I’ll write and illustrate! It’s gotta start somewhere and I’m using this blog post to hold myself accountable. When it’s time to unwind from my constantly busy mind, or time to get motivated to create, I’ve got a few Flores Lane candles burning. There’s nothing like being in a room with warm soy candles and delicious scents. If you’re in the market for new candles and wondering which Flores Lane scent to choose, you’ll never be disappointed because every single scent that Flores Lane creates is amazing. I discover new favorites all the time! And c’mon, how classy do these candles look? You can’t go wrong with their signature black and white jars.
Happy New Year, bunnies!
