Kicking off my first of the last 4 weekends I have in California, it did not disappoint.  The weekend was one of epic proportions! First check out my new hair: lavender/unicorn. Pretty cool huh? I have been wanting to do it for a while but held off because of my corporate job. Sayonara marketing! Now that I am moving to NYC and pursuing design I can finally be what I want and more importantly, do what I want!

Fashion is certainly my first love, but as many of you may not be aware I am also very passionate about the environment. So much so, that I started a green initiative at the company I currently work for (DataStax) I named my green dream team #DataStaxDoingGood. This weekend we spent time @ Stinson Beach in Marin, CA doing a beach clean up for remnants of the Tsunami in Japan back in 2011 (garbage that has been floating across the ocean for 4+ years). Suspiciously, none of the garbage actually looked like it was from a Tsunami..most were cigarette butts and plastic bottle tops..Oh and Iain found a dead bird? Sweet.

There is no better way to spend my time! Volunteering with coworkers I am lucky enough to call  friends, making a real impact on that beach (500 points for Gryffindor!) How rare it is to see the same people 5 days a week and still want to be with them on the weekend! Working together making difference towards something bigger than yourself. Given this kicked off my last month in California, it will be hard to top!
