I just would like to wish you all a very happy and safe Halloween. Feel free to share your costumes with me on my Facebook page or on Instagram you can find me @ The Rad Hatter.
You know what’s exciting about fall? There’s pumpkin everything, leaves are changing (not here in Cali but you know everywhere else), weather begins to cool down (again not here… ) and every thing starts to feel all warm, comfy, fuzzy. One really wonderful thing about Fall it is probably the greatest time of year to have a wedding.
Hello cat babies!
I had a lovely weekend and have a few things to share with you all.
First, I got a new camera!!! My good friend and photographer Eve Was Framed recently purchased a brand new Canon 60D camera. She was sweet enough to sell her other very well taken care of Canon Rebel xsi to yours truly.
Who knows what this means? Yup, better quality photos of Rad and events. Better pictures for you viewers to view!
Secondly, I went down to Laguna Beach on Sunday afternoon to check out the Sawdust Festival and test out the new camera!
For the fans who follow my Facebook page you probably all know that I am madly addicted to Black Milk Clothing. Black Milk (yes that is a photo they posted of me, I’m very proud haha) is a online shop based out of Australia. They make the most amazing drool worthy clothes and the material of choice is nylon. Their clothing brings me joy and give me a confidence boost every time I wear it.
Last Saturday I attended a Black Milk clothing fan meet up for the first time. We call ourselves the Black Milk So Cal sharkies! We had brunch at James Beach the famous Best Fish tacos restaurant from the movie I Love You Man. I have to say it was such a pleasure to meet all the lovely ladies!
If I were to describe this meet up I would have to say it was the sexiest Brunch I’ve ever attended with women I loved instantly upon meeting them. I am so glad I went though and I can not wait until the next.

I’m back from a long blogging break and I am ready to talk… about hair.
I’ve been going natural for a few months now but I’m just now starting to wear it down more often.
I have curly, unruly tangled and dry damaged hair. I used to hate it and neglect combing it often because I didn’t really see the point. I am guilty of straightening it repeatedly for months and months without breaks. I didn’t like having curls at all even though I’ve always been told that my “natural hair” looks nice or that those with “straight hair” would love to trade for mine. To me, I always felt like my hair was more of a burden then a gift.
Recently my step-mother Karen and owner of The Beauty in You salon in Reseda, CA were chatting about my little twin sisters hair. They have long beautiful wavy hair with very relaxed curls. These two girls are actively out playing sports, running, jumping and full of energy and their hair never loses its curl or shape and never gets frizzy.
Karen recommended I try Design Essentials Shampoo and Conditioner as well as the Design Essentials Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
Above: A picture of the daily moisturizer and what is left of samples of shampoo and conditioner.
Hello lovely kitties!
Here is a spur of the moment recon. T- shirt I did today. I was inspired to do this for a while but never really had the time.
The inspiration is from crafty SZmoon’s crop tops and Coachella and Spring/Summer fashions I have been seeing popping up.
I just finished editing these photos, enjoy!
What you’ll need:
- Sharp Scissors (because mine sucked…)
- A t-shirt you DGAF about (because you may mess up)
- some motivation ( because you don’t want to be lazy like me)

I decided I wanted to have a cute little outfit for my adventurous day with Phear this Valentine’s day. I was able pick up an entire outfit at Forever 21 (which is now starting to sound like my favorite store..it’s not I swear) for under 50 bucks. Score! I had some heels I’ve been needing to wear out and I put it all together with tights. I was originally going to do just a snapshot of my outfit for this blog but I ended up collaborating with Chelsea of Eve Was Framed Photography! I was extremely excited when Chelsea posted she needed a model for a Valentine’s day shoot because we’ve worked together before, she does amazing work. Eve Was Framed is a unique photographer with her own original style. She uses soft pretty hues but still manages to have the strong vivid colors blending in perfectly. Who’s ready to see the photos? Also please be sure to follow the Eve Was Framed Photography facebook page. <3
Have a Happy Valentine’s day everyone! Share some love with somebody special in your life today! Whether its family, friends or the man/woman of your dreams You don’t need a date to spread love!
More pictures of this shoot are posted in the Eve Was Framed Photography facebook profile!!
Tonight I will be showing you how to make this cuff bracelet I saw at Norstrom for $65.00. I decided to make it instead of buying it because it just too expensive for not much work. This tutorial will be so quick you’ll see.

Two weeks ago some friends and I decided to take a little trek over to Laguna Beach. I’ve ventured to Laguna a lot for the Sawdust Festival in the summer but, there wasn’t very many times I’ve been to the actual beach. I must say I can see why people love it there so much! It was an early January day so of course it was still cold but not gloomy at all. It was an absolutely beautiful day to be at the beach, to my surprise.
