Although we can't keep sweet lil' succulents alive too well here in Phoenix, I still love their spongey, funky-shaped goodness. 🌿🌱🍃 So I will have to just enjoy a cute virtual succulent designed by @roymeister... who is my color scheme soul sister!! #succulentsofinstagram #simplycooldesign #abmlifeiscolorful
When you're setting up your camera and a quintessential Cali surfer boy photobombs your test shot...and it actually turns out pretty cool 😎🏄🏽🌊💛Happy Friday! Any fun plans Insta friends?
If there was an adjective people have used to refer to me over my lifetime, it has consistently been sweet. 🍬🍭 ⠀ ⠀ Even my nickname when I was a kid was Sprinkles. (Mainly because I could eat sprinkles straight from the bottle, but I have a feeling it had to do with my demeanor as well 😂)⠀ ⠀ I started noticing how many people call me sweet a few years ago, and my independent, strong-minded business woman personality was like Hellllll, no - I'm not sweet....I'm fierce!! ⚡️⠀ ⠀ And then I realized being sweet is a total asset. People are going to identify what vibe I'm putting off naturally, so who am I to argue with what they're seeing? I just have to OWN IT! ⠀ ⠀ So here it is...I'm friendly, fun (and colorful!) on the surface but have a wholllle lot of flavor and depth under the surface. If you make me mad, watch out, because Sprinkles doesn't take any BS. 💁🏽🎉🔥⠀ ⠀ Thanks to @liviamurta for the awesome image!!
You better believe I was going to recreate LaLaLand when I found these orange-tastic light poles in L.A. last week! 🌟🍊⠀ ⠀ I only just saw the movie for the first time recently and I can't get the songs out of my head. 🎶 City of starrrrrss... And was it just me - or did you cry like a baby at the end too?
Happy First Day of Summer!!! ☀️ We're celebrating over here in Arizona with a 120℉ day 🔥⠀ ⠀ But instead of moaning about the heat, I'd wanted to share this quote (from the illustrious Mark Twain 😉) that reflects how I feel: COLD ❄️⠀ ⠀ Everyone starts cranking the A/C here as soon as spring comes, and I just can't stand it. I lug sweaters and scarves around in the summer more than I do in the winter!! ⠀ ⠀ There's something to say about us insulating ourselves from the outside so much. As someone who is car-free, I'm out 'in the elements' all the time. Yea, it's hot, but it's just as hot as getting into a car that's been sitting in the sun for 8 hours....at least I have a breeze and a good attitude 😎💨
You know that feeling when you walk on your favorite street in the city you used to live and wander by your favorite mural on a gorgeous sunny day? 🙏🏼🌸☀️ Well, that my folks is called *happy nostalgia* and it hit me hard 👊🏽 last week walking on Main Street in Santa Monica. ⠀ ⠀ I used to ride my 🚲 down to this street almost every weekend to sip chai at my favorite cafe, Amelia's, visit the farmers market and flirt with the lavender sales boy 💁🏽, and people watch from the mezzanine of my favorite coffee shop, the Novel Cafe 📚 ⠀ ❓❓I'd love to know...what place inspires *happy nostalgia* in you? It was bittersweet to only be back for 36 hours, but I tried to make the most of it. It's hard NOT to be infected by the breezy, #happyvibes of the beaches of L.A. and I only left wanting more. ⠀ What a mural by @kristeldesigns
