You don't have to suffer from the Winter gloom anymore...

March 01, 2019


Hollllllaaaa March! There only three more months 'til Summer officially kicks off in the USA with Memorial Day weekend, and four months until the Summer Solstice...but who's counting???

OK, if you live anywhere that's had non-stop snow for the past month (I feel for you Portland and Toronto), you definitely are counting those days until you can put the snow shovels back in the shed! 

BUT, did you know that you don't have to suffer from the Winter gloom anymore, even though it's still Winter???

How so?!

Instead of counting the days until warmer weather, why not have a piece of paradise with a sunset or beach print hanging on your wall at home, year round?!?! But don't just take it from me (because, yes I'm slightly biased when it comes to photography prints...go figure!!!), here's Luciana's advice! 

"I think of the beach as my happy place and I knew that one of Kristen's prints would be the perfect solution to bring in some summer beach vibes to my home, no matter what the temperature is outside in the concrete jungle of NYC!" 
- Luciana

How about that -- muchas gracias Luciana! And did you know... if you need help picking out a print for your space or have questions about sizing, email me + let's chat -- I'm more than happy to help! 


Or you can escape to paradise too!
If you simply just need a warm weather beach vacation like N-O-W, Tamarindo is hosting an International Surf Film Festival in two weeks (March 13th-15th)....just enough time for you to book your plane ticket, reserve a hotel, and escape to surf Pura Vidadise! So what are you waiting for?! Check out my Costa Rica travel tips + insight here and get on that plane!
