Back in February one of my best friends, Kate, took these portraits of me. Kate is the amazing photographer and CEO of Kate + Photography located in the California Bay Area. If you have a wedding or event coming up, you better book her now! She also specializes in classy (not trashy) boudoir photo shoots as well.

I haven’t been brave enough to share these photos until now. It’s because I have this weird notion that I have a bitchy resting face in all my photos. Don’t know what bitchy resting face is? Well, educate yourself here. I think it may be an epidemic 🙂
To my surprise, because I’m a horrible model and completely un-photogenic, they turned out ok and non-bitchy-resting-face like.
It seems the ombre trend has been so popular lately that we are seeing everywhere. Hair, nails, wall colors, clothes. It’s even popping up on my one my favorite foods, cake! I am very much the novice baker, even resorting to pre-made boxed cake mix, but I love how beautiful and creative you can get with food, especially desserts. I’ll be making a cake (a very beginners cake, I might add) for my sister-in-law’s baby shower luncheon this weekend and was perusing Pinterest for some inspiration. It seems the possibilities are endless (see below). I may or may not post the final results of my cake depending how terrible it may turn out. But in the mean time I will try to channel my inner cake boss. Bon appétit!

My boss introduced me to these beautiful photos of Africa, taken by photographer Nick Brandt. They are absolutely breath-taking. I love how the photos are black and white; it sort of forces you to really see the ethereal beauty in these animals and Africa itself. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
