Once in a while, all we need is a pick me up, a push, a motivation, to do what we want ourselves to do.

Through friends, old and new, family, or maybe even a specific event in one's life, we get that push. Recently, I teamed up with three new friends (and bloggers alike) to put together a group photo shoot. Enter, Hayley, Nicole, and Jacqueline. Jacqueline was introduced two weeks ago on WGSAY, so don't forget to go back and check out that post if you missed it. You can also find her blog 



Next is the blogger bestie duo, Hayley and Nicole, from

Staria Beauty

. Hayley and Nicole, hairstylist and makeup artist respectively, each come with their talents and together, they make an awesome pair. With starting their friendship years ago, the bond they have is unbreakable and they feed off of each others dreams and inspirations. Together, they created Staria which means; 

"You are bold, independent, inquisitive, and interested in research. You know what you want and why you want it. You are seeking freedom, opportunities to enjoy life: to make love, to go places, and to do things. You are very adventurous and willing to take risk to achieve your objectives. New ways and new experiences can't satisfy your restless nature. One adventure leads you to another." 

So, we imagined what it would be like to collaborate together and how we could use all of our talents at once. Hayley did the hair, Nicole and Jacqueline did the makeup and I styled the outfits. Not to mention, we had Molly Quinn Photography carrying the vision through the lens to produce these gorgeous photos. It started from one picture of inspiration with Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson all walking down a street in New York wearing chic and somehow (magically) coordinated outfits. Thus, we had these looks. 

I am so happy to have met these women!! Each one is talented, intelligent and even better, a good person. For bookings, inquiries, or questions email, or 

Next week... feeling the love... in Florence!!
