happy 2017, friends! it feels so good to be jumping in with both feet for the new year with my launch of SRL’s redesign! there’s been a lot of hard work & thought that’s gone into this process, and i hope you all are just as happy with it as i am. the blog is now hopefully much easier to read, more simple to shop, more aesthetically pleasing, and easier to navigate as well. i’d love your comments on the new site & i hope you love it because i couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out!

because i’ve been dying to share these photos from my birthday surprise, i figured with the new year and my new site, this would be a fun time to post them. also, all these sequins make for a perfect New Year’s outfit!

in case you missed my birthday post on IG, here’s the recap for tonight’s post: on my 25th birthday robbie ended an already fantastic day with a surprise photoshoot at the famous Griffith Observatory overlooking all of Los Angeles. he told me to dress up fancy beforehand and i could not for the life of me figure out where we were going when we got into the car that evening. it wasn’t until i saw signs and then my good photographer friend Rose Swain popped out of nowhere that i realized how thoughtful his final gift to me was! photos are my absolute favorite and i love that i will have these memories of my 25th birthday always & forever.

i hope everyone had a fun & safe New Year’s celebration! i’m excited to share with you a few resolutions and goals for the coming year in my next post. xx

ps: can you spot the Hollywood sign?!
