Grateful



This is a photo I posted on my personal Instagram account last month (@feemster, you can also find me fashion loving on @la_feem;)  It was just one of those moments that I parked my car in front of my friend's house, and was astounded at the sheer beauty in front of me.  It was a reminder to be grateful for all the gorgeousness and love that surrounds me, I'm very lucky.  

This time of year we tend to count our blessings, but it's something I try to do each and every day.  An attitude of gratitude is the key to the law of attraction, it brings you more of what you want.  And it's good to be grateful for the not so fun stuff too.  It's only through our struggles that we grow and evolve. (I can attest to that!)  I also want to say how grateful I am to have this platform.  Blogging brings me a lot of joy, and I want to thank you all for reading, and being apart of the journey.  Wishing each and every one of you an amazing holiday!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Vegan Shoes - From High to Low






I'm really only interested in wearing vegan shoes at this point.  I would rather not wear critters on my feet, and wish all creatures to be free, but finding cute styles has been challenging!  I came across Lulu's and was pleasantly surprised.  They have a plethora of cute vegan shoes, from tons of different brands, at incredible prices ($24-85). Sandals, heels, boots, you name it. Vegan leather has come along way, it's nice to see the progress.  And if you're looking for something more high end, there's always Stella McCartney...

Vegan Nail Polish


As much as I love nail polish, I don't love the toxic chemicals, and animal testing most beauty brands use.  But alas! There are non toxic, and cruelty-free products readily available.  I think it's high time as a society we move to a more ethical way of living, and free those poor babes in cages.  It's like we've been living in the modern dark ages. Here are four non-toxic, vegan brands that have gorgeous colors, perfect for A/W '14, with no critters harmed in the making;)

Papaya Playa ~ Tulum, Mexico

















Growing up in San Diego, it was just a given that you spent a lot of time in Baja, Mexico.  It was my families go-to vacation spot, and when I was a teen-ager, my entire high school filled the Tijuana bars on the weekends. Needless to say, I fell in love with Mex when I was very young.  There's something special about this country, and it gets into your blood.  As well as Baja, I've ventured down into the Mainland a few times, but I've never made it all the way to the Yucat√°n Peninsula.  It's now time.

I've been planning a trip to Tulum in 2015, and sourcing boutique hotels.  Papaya Playa stole my heart.  This place looks like a gem of gems.  It's right on the beach, secluded, eco-conscious, with amazing interiors, and the most relaxed vibe around.  Plus, the room rates are incredibly reasonable.  If you're looking for a Mexican getaway, check out more info on this spot here.
