Back at it


To begin with the obvious, I have not blogged in a year. While I never intended to stop blogging 12 months ago, my life (and by life I mean career and lifestyle) made a dramatic shift at the beginning of 2014.  I quit my full-time job at the end of December 2013 (goodbye regular pay check and relative financial stability) and took a leap of faith, scratching an entrepreneurial itch to go out on my own professionally at the beginning of January 2014.

For anyone else who is self-employed, they can affirm it is scary in the beginning, yet extremely rewarding once you get the figurative ball rolling.  I’ll admit it- at first I took any job that I could get, mainly out of fear of failing. As time progressed though, different jobs and situations made me reflect upon myself in ways I never thought business would; getting down to my core and really assessing my likes/dislikes + strengths/weaknesses. Although this sounds counterintuitive and ass-backward, it was not so much due to a lack of planning as it was forcing me to fine tune the direction I want to fly.

In Drake’s Lord Knows, a few of Rick Ross’s lines really resonate with where I am today:

“I fell in love with the pen, started fucking the ink
The hustle’s an art, I painted what I would think
Still allergic to broke, prescription straight to the paper”

This all being said, I have missed this silly little creative outlet, and in the pursuit of writing and happiness, I have made a conscious decision to begin blogging again. The content is going to change slightly, but I hope you find ATM even more intriguing and thought provoking than before.  Thanks for your continued support, and I invite you check back on the regular as I share insights on being a twenty-something living, working, and playing in Los Angeles.

Day to Night

DAY TO NIGHT desk to dinner outfit of the day #ootd style fashion ALL THINGS MAJOR blog

Day to night/Desk to Dinner. Call it what you will, but here is one answer to the modern-day working woman’s dressing conundrum…. standing in your closet at 7am trying to figure out what to wear… that will be appropriate for meetings throughout the day… yet slick enough when you head straight to drinks 10+ hours later, switching gears from work to play mode. I would also throw a Rag & Bone Hudson Leather Moto Jacket in the mix for day and night (not pictured).

Core: Tibi Classic Racer Back Camisole  +  Isabel Marant Musk Charmeuse Leopard Pant

Day: Super Sunglasses Lucia Silber Sunglasses  +  Gorjana Taner Pave Bar Necklace  +  Carven Twisted Chunky Knit Jumper  +  Tibi Cody d’Orsay Flats with Ankle Strap

Night:  Stella Mccartney Gold Chain_embellished Cuff  +  Givenchy Rose Print Antigona Envelope Clutch  +  CASADEI strappy stiletto sandal

Shades of Tortoise

shades of tortoise sunglasses 2014 ALL THINGS MAJOR BLOG

 Not to be too insensitive to my friends in the northeastern US right now {and their lingering arctic tundra}, it has been unusually nice here in LA the past few weeks. So nice, we may be having a warmer winter than we did summer {but that’s a story for another day}. With the 75+ degree temperatures as of late, it has put me in the mood to scope out a possible new sunnie investment for spring. For some reason, I have been gravitating towards those of tortoise hue spectrum, and have rounded up my top four favorite finds. Top to bottom {above}:  Super Lucia Mirrored Cove Sunnies  //  Karen Walker Number One  //  Lanvin Square Frame Sunnies  //  Chloé Rounded Square Frame

Clean & Pretty Prints

soap beauty spa packaging patterns prints ALL THINGS MAJOR Blog

I’ve been vibe-ing on textile prints A LOT lately, so when I stopped by a local apothecary last week to pick up a gift for a friend, the packaging on some of the products stopped me in my steps. Aside from swooning over the indulgent scents, I found myself most excited with all the prints and patterns used to package the merchandise. After finding what I went to the store for in the first place, I may or may not have purchased a soap or two, based on packaging alone, with no intention of actually ever unwrapping the wax seal, satin ribbon, and hand-painted paper. Can you blame me?

Larchmont Bungalow  ALL THINGS MAJOR BLOG Larchmont Blvd Los Angeles I had a business meeting at the Larchmont Bungalow yesterday, and decided to snap a few photos while I was there. It is a street I have been to dozens of times, but each time I visit I fall in love with the neighborhood a little bit more. For those who are not familiar, it is a qaint neighborhood smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles. The main street is close to the foot of the mountain that houses the Hollywood sign {which when you stand in the middle of the road makes for a great picture}, but what I love most are the curated boutiques, colorful bakeries, and people watching {of course}.

As I was on the prowl for new items hitting e-tailers {aka online stores} this weekend, I rediscovered pieces from the Givenchy RTW Fall 2013 Collection. To say it was lust at first sight, this encounter reaffirmed my love for the collection with its slick asymmetrics and midnight florals.
