Cosmos | New Moon In Taurus

A New Moon marks the beginning + end of the 28 day lunar cycle. We are energized + inspired to make a fresh start + turn a new leaf.
The April 26, 2017 New Moon in Taurus will be very transformative. Taurus energy supports us in making important changes. Connect to self through simple + physical pleasures – it’s time to understand what makes us feel at peace + brings out our best self.
Emotional challenges will come from the Moon’s alignment with two nasty stars, Hamal + Schedir, both associated with the dark side of human nature.
The influence of these stars is amplified + felt by all; everyone has their shadows. As always, the universe has your back + the planets are aligned to bring stunning insights + understanding, leading to positive transformation.
Mercury conjunct Uranus, will support higher awareness of your personal shadows. Your brain is stimulated, so this is a great time for creative expression. Increased open-mindedness + intuition makes it easier to grasp abstract concepts. The things you discover will surprise you.
Mercury trine Saturn provides disciplined thinking + concentration. It makes the aforementioned abstract concepts tangible + easy to apply in real life. This is a good new moon for making important decisions + having serious discussions.
Saturn trine Uranus represents a transition phase in life. This is the ideal time to make positive changes because they should run smoothly. Change will not be upsetting or erratic; you will remain calm, planning every step methodically. This is also a good time for experimentation + creative self-expression.
Revealing your inner demons will disempower them + liberate you. Accepting your shadows will lead to a rapid + positive transformation… relieving you of guilt + fear.


Travel | Lily In Tulum

Tulum is one of my favorite beach getaways. Every April, when I get that first taste of Spring in LA, I start craving Tulum's warm water + powder beaches. Luckily, my birthday is April 10th, so a visit to the Riviera Maya has become my little birthday ritual.

This year was extra special, it was my 30th - so my nearest + dearest joined me for an idyllic few days. I kept a photo diary of my girlfriends + I as we vacationed in pieces from my collection. In true #LIVEinLILY fashion, our outfits perfectly transitioned from a day at the beach to night at the wine bar.


SEE - Define the aesthetic style of Tulum in 3 adjectives:

Romantic, Beachy, Jungle-chic
HEAR - Favorite sound of Tulum + why? (a song, an instrument, a sound in nature)

I love to hear the parrots chirping. Tulum's landscape is special - it's where the jungle meets the sea. So I love sitting on the beach, with the Jungle behind me + hearing the exotic birds sing.
TASTE - Favorite restaurant in Tulum?

Hartwood is my all time favorite - it's a farm to table restaurant nestled in the Jungle. Everything is cooked over open fire + the taste is fresh + primal.
SMELL - Your favorite scent + why (perfume, flower, anything)

I love the perfumes of Coqui Coqui. Their scents are made in the neighboring city of Merida. My favorite is their coconut perfume, it captures the romantic beach energy perfectly.
TOUCH – What is your skincare routine while on vacation?

I'm fair skinned, so I need a powerful sunscreen. I love MD Solar Sciences - it's protective + made with safe ingredients. I always pack a good exfoliant when I'm going to be in the sun - my favorite is the Ginger Body Scrub by Living Libations. And I also like a nourishing moisturizer - organic coconut oil is great for travel because it's multi-purpose… I put it all over my face, body + hair.
INTUITION – This type of vacation is all about reconnecting with yourself. Do you have an activity or practice, that’s only purpose is to bring light to your life? (meditation, astrology, exercise, arts etc)

I grew up on the beach, so salty air, and ocean breeze + sand between my toes brings me back to myself. Simply floating in the sea is my favorite form of meditation.

SEE - Define your personal style in 3 adjectives:

Fun and Femme, but Comfy

HEAR - A sound you love + why?

I love the sound of rain. Growing up in Southern California with scarce rainfall, it's kind of like a novelty to me.

TASTE - A favorite to cook right now?

Braided Nutella puff pastries

SMELL - Your favorite scent + why?

Palo Santo - it calms me, and it reminds me of a campfire

TOUCH What is your skincare routine?

I use Rodan & Fields UNBLEMISH products - the sulfur face wash, clarifying toner, dual intensive acne treatment, and oil control lotion - twice a day.  I try to do a Japanese face mask twice a week as well, they're ultra hydrating and leave your skin looking dewy and perfect. They're also just fun.

INTUITION Do you have an activity or practice, that’s only purpose is to bring light to your life?

My family fosters newborn puppies, so that experience over the past three years has really brought a lot of light to my life.
