My always mood is salad and fries. I could eat that every day for the rest of life. And ideally they’re sweet potato fries. Also would most of the time say yes to olives and almonds and a Campari Spritz, that’s a good type of moment. Biggest indulgence hmmmm well if I want something I’ll have it so I’m not really in an indulgence/deprivation mindset but my favorite dinner that can happen in LA is Crossroads I always just want to (and do) order like everything on the menu there.
Hi and wow I have so much love for you for following me for that long! So much nostalgia for those days 💕
And I know of only one white strip that falls into the ocean so yes you described it perfectly – that was the Gliderport in La Jolla. Did so much blog shooting and life pondering there. A magic place and a windy place.
Yes I have both! Petite for travel and the regular one stays on my vanity I love them.
And SO HAPPY to be back on Ask! Sorry it was broken for almost all of 2018 😓 please keep them coming 💕
I knew zero. Totally learned as I went along the steps a piece takes to go from idea to existing and the billion types of issues that can arise along the way. That learning continues every single day. I’m absolutely deficient in multiple areas and my entire reason for creating AYAI is to design and create a tiny universe so delegating those weaker areas to my amazing team is what allows me to focus on the vision. Being in a position now to where I can do that is something I can never forget to appreciate when I think about those early days! What is always for sure is that I’ve conceptualized something I think is missing from the world, painstakingly considered every way that a design can be its best, tried it on in multiple fittings, tried it on on other body types in multiple fittings, worn it during mundane activities to make sure it’s perfect, checked the first one that comes in from production to make sure nothing went wrong, given it a name that I feel captures its essence, had discussions on how to make sure it’s displayed perfectly to you, and then set it free into existence. I never ever tire of these elements of having my own brand.
Non ayai! Yes that exists. Ok most excited about a vintage LV find – denim belt bag that’s so perfectly Paris and Nicole circa times gone by I could cry. Always collecting tiny vintage sweaters so I have a fresh batch of those, a vintage shearling jacket that’s very Penny Lane but also cropped, a pair of 2000s Gucci sandals that barely exists they’re so delicate, a couple shells as in the sea, Levi’s always am accumulating, Tatcha’s silk canvas primer which I’m liking, hooded trench off ASOS, a Nudestix stick….and done.
Zara! From a few months ago though.
