Pretty in Petra: Jordan Part 2

Jordan day two fulfilled Indiana Jones dreams. As per usual, I dressed for the adventure, and was ready to take on the day. In the vain of Mr. Jones, I wore my tan floppy hat and a button up top. To snazz it up, I added some pops of color with my burnt orange culottes […]

The Journey to Jordan

Come away with me to the region of ancient history. Come away with me, on a biblical pilgramage, on a journey that revives the soul, connecting you with the culture of a far off land that is so unlike your own, but maybe not as unreachable as you would expect. Join me on my four […]

Vartan in a Tartan: Scottish Style

With my green and blue tartan tightly wrapped around me, I stepped inside the beautiful country of Scotland. It was a weekend of time travel, as I traded the crisp white buildings of South Kensington in London for the grey stone buildings of Edinburgh and green fields of the highlands.

Notting Hill

This weekend, my fabulous friend (and one of my roommates) Rebekah and I travelled just two short stops on the tube to Notting Hill (yes, the same one in the movie with the ever so endearing Hugh Grant and the too perfect for words Julia Roberts). As I had not seen the movie before, we […]

The scenery as well as the people of London consistently evoke style inspiration. Specifically in South Kensington, there are streets of white and pristine Victorian […]

Enjoying the Mali-beauty

I don’t belong anywhere: I belong everywhere. The phrase above happens to be my life motto for the sole purpose that I love to travel and experience new spaces and places. With that being said, Malibu—and more specifically, Pepperdine (my university) is one of the places I can easily call home; it is a place […]

Fashion and Festivities: Why Turning Nineteen is Monumental

Birthdays: a wonderful time to remember how blessed you are by what you have and those who surround you. Even more so than thanksgiving, I feel the most grateful on my date of birth.

Out With the New, In With the Old

Thrifting is one of my favorite ways to shop because it’s a treasure hunt. None of the clothes are ever the same because rather than being mass-produced, they’re handpicked by storeowners, or in other words “chosen.” Before they were displayed in the store, these clothing items were worn by another person—sometimes even from a different […]
