75K LAPTOP GIVEAWAY!
I cannot believe I’ve hit 75k on Instagram under two years. As my way to say thanks, I want to give away a 13″ Acer laptop. But this isn’t just any laptop, it’s the laptop I won on The Price is Right!
What’s a girl do after 21 inches of fresh powder at Mt Baker? Apres ski smoke sesh!
I went up to Mt Baker last weekend for a winter wonderland adventure with my boyfriend (yes, you read that right) and couldn’t have asked for better conditions. 21 inches of freshies meant a) an epic day on the slopes and b) an epic afternoon for photos.
“Hey Bess, how do you always get such awesome photos? Do you like, roll around with a team of photographers?”
I received that question last week and while I don’t always “roll with a team” I do have a ton of talented photographer friends. We got together a while back for a Seattle weed meet, to blaze it up and shoot around town.
Sure I’m wearing all black for Black Friday, but I keep it green with Creatures of the Wind. I fell in love with their recent Capsule Collection after seeing it at Marley Natural’s colette pop-up in Paris.
Shane Gabier and Chris Peters of Creatures of the Wind created the line in conjunction with System magazine’s weed issue. Vintage shirts, sweatshirts and jackets feature hand-drawn cannabis embroidery. When I saw this one-of-a-kind USA shirt, I knew it was a match made in fashion heaven.
Remember the dress I purchased for my cousin’s wedding? You know, the one I forgot to pack? Well this is it — a vibrant yellow, chiffon Show Me Your Mumu dress!
Now normally I wouldn’t stress about forgetting a dress, but this isn’t just any dress and I didn’t purchase it for just any wedding. My cousin recently married a woman whose grandfather served as the President of Mexico. Wedding attire called for formal, and I wanted to branch out from my all black everything.
I absolutely hate being cold, which played a big part in this purchase. The Moya III is built for extreme conditions. Thirty degrees or below? No problem! With water-resistant Merino shearling and an insulting 16mm wool interior, whatever the weather I stay warm.
I had the opportunity to work with Arielle during my last trip to California. She's an amazing fashion and lifestyle photographer in the San Diego area. So what does one wear when rolling out of bed and rolling up joints? I threw on this orange bikini by Triangl swimwear and one of my favorite jackets by Vintage Redeux. Glasses provided by Arielle.
Don't let the feminine aspect fool you. If you support cannabis, anyone can be a Cannabis Feminist. I recently attended one of their Happiest Hours and spoke with founder Jessica Assaf about femininity and her favorite flower.
So what is Cannabis Feminist? It's a community to celebrate the female flower and her ability to heal the world. This women-run organization is on a mission to transform cannabis into a universal wellness program and empower women to lead the industry.
Trick or treat! It’s one of my favorite holidays — Halloween. However, working in weed, it’s been appropriately renamed Halloweed. To celebrate the season, we ventured to a local farm in search of pumpkin spice sativa.
Last year High Times voted me one of their Ten Best Halloweed Photos, so how do I top that? By working with one of Seattle’s best, and quickest rising photographers, the talented Dillon Ivory. Dillon is known for beautiful portraits, stunning styling and soft tones. So working with him was on my bucket list.
It’s no secret my best friend is every cat ever, which is why I’m sparking up Berry White joints by Solstice for National Cat Day.
National Cat Day was founded as a way to bring awareness to the number of homeless cats. It takes place on October 29th every year in the United States. The official website states the holiday was first celebrated in 2005 “to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.”
