Paisley in Peru | FASHION + TRAVEL

 

 

This is one of the comfiest outfits ever, which was perfect for our day of rehearsals in Peru. Paisley is such a popular print right now, so I included some similar options below, but this particular dress is on sale!!! $57 (originally $100). It always makes me reaaaally excited when I have good deals to share! 😁

Speaking of rehearsals, our student conference is coming up next week, so our band is meeting up tonight to kick this thing into high gear! Super looking forward to conference! 

Get the look...

Dress: Style London | Shoes: Adidas (similar here and here) | Lips: NYX

SALE Alert! It's Mint To Be

Not sure what timezone I'm currently living in...can I get back to you on that? :) After only 3 days back in the U.S.A. was Gateway Generate's Night of Worship! I've had heavenly experiences on both sides of the world in a very short amount of time...it's been quite a whirlwind, to say the least, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Since the Night of Worship, I've been catching up on rest and the fashion weeks I've missed out on.

I put together a SALE board for my blog friends...from plaid trends (inspired by NYFW) to fringe booties (that can easily be taken into Spring) -- of course I had to throw in a few draped trench kimonos, cause they're my favorite. Each item on the board is on SALE -- it's like it was *mint to be* -- 😁

Hope in Tokyo

Tokyo has taken me by surprise...I never dreamed I'd love it so!

Gateway Worship had our first ever Worship Roundtable in Japan, hosted by Hope Church! This is a time when local church worship leadership comes together and bounces ideas off each other, learns from one another, and worships and prays together.

After the weekend Roundtable, we had the honor of participating in Sunday morning church at Hope. Did I mention that Tim Sheppard can PREACH?!

"God has created a language that any of us can speak -- from the youngest, to the oldest -- regardless of your background, race, or gender -- YOU can praise the Lord."  - Tim Sheppard

Melon Fanta ^^ I'm obsessed!

VLOG Made in Taiwan: Gateway Worship

We teamed up with Joshua Band this week at Kingdom Culture Conference! My favorite moment of the whole conference was when my dad and Pastor Ewen Chow led "We Bow Low" together in worship -- back and forth, between Mandarin and English. Hearing another tribe and tongue sing familiar Gateway Worship songs is breathtaking, but worshiping as one is even more stunning.

"...How good and how pleasant it is
for brethren to dwell together in unity!" Psalm 133:1

A series of 15 Siesta Key sunset photos in the order they were captured...I thought this would be a fun way to share my photos from the evening, especially for the fellow photographers out there. :) I'm already itching to have these images printed!!

P.S. - any photos featuring me in this post were taking by the bestie, Blaire Sanders👏]

Sweet dreams and much love xo

Big Sur Dream x The Photo Diaries

 

Big Sur, California: check. A bucket list dream come true (not once, but twice in 2015). It seems only the human eye can capture how special this place really is...pictures don't do it justice. It's absolutely enchanting.

August 2015: my bestie and I visited the San Fran / Carmel / Pebble Beach / Big Sur area in lieu of my 25th birthday -- staying in a treehouse, a cottage in the valley, and a yurt -- yes, YURT. We decided we're not so much the "yurting type," if there even is such a thing. However, I would relive the treehouse part over and over again. I'll save the details for another post. :)

Now enter: Bixby Bridge #tourists

^^ Turning into a five-year-old because BIG SUR ^^

December 2015: Cali always seems like a good idea, but when Blaire graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology? It became a must. We caught a flight immediately following her ceremony, yes indeed.

It's true, Pfeiffer Beach has PURPLE GLITTER SAND. Another five-year-old moment. I took too many photos, while Blaire stuffed sand in her backpack (as seen in VLOG).

If you've experienced Big Sur in all its beauty, leave me a comment with your favorite must do, must see or must eat! :) If you haven't, add it to your travel wishlist and plan a trip. I can hardly wait to visit again!
