I lived in Los Angeles for 5 years and never got that iconic palm tree lined street pic - until now! We began our hunt to find one to photograph for this shoot, and came across the perfect tree lined street leading right up to the Hollywood sign - providing that *extra* epic backdrop. Keep reading to find out how to get to this spot!

You can find this iconic palm tree lined street in LA with the Hollywood Sign in the background on South Windsor Blvd between 4th and 5th Streets. LA truly is a beautiful place.

Maui Diary

AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_MakaluapunaPoint_1.jpg

After much consideration on where to spend our honeymoon, we decided Maui would be the best for all of our honeymoon desires. We were looking for a place that was both relaxing and adventurous - and Maui is just that! We sipped cocktails by an infinity pool directly facing the sunset, watched the sunrise from atop a volcano, and hiked to see the many waterfalls and beaches around the island. I don't want to give away too much, so take a peek at my Maui Diary below!  

AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_MakaluapunaPoint__DragonsTeeth_2.jpg

We started off our adventure with a drive to see Makaluapuna Point, aka Dragon's Teeth, for an absolutely magical sunset! I don't think I could have matched the sky and reflected ocean any better than with that Smocking Dress by Pitusa

Welcome to our Honeymoon Home #1, y'all - nestled in the rainforest of North Shore at the start of Hana Highway! We stayed here for a few nights, and really got that Hawaiian experience. There were geckos, fruit trees, and the most vibrant flowers surrounding the property. The location was also great because it was central to many places around Maui - including one of our favorite areas, Paia!

In the photos above & below, I am wearing the Solid Flare Top and Solid Flare Pant by Pitusa.

Yes, that loft is inside of the tiny home! How cool are those steps leading up to it? I loved hanging out at this dreamy spot wearing that Lilah Lace Robe by Show Me Your Mumu!

The flowers surrounding the tiny home property were just *gorgeous*. I couldn't help but capture them after an afternoon shower when the colors were so vibrant!

Once we left our tiny home on the North Shore, we headed east on Hana Highway for our Honeymoon Home #2 located right in Hana on a black sand beach. See below for the view from our balcony!

Black sand beaches are really something else, huh? The contrast of the black lava rock with the greenery and ocean blue tones were mesmerizing! I especially loved the mood as the storm clouds rolled in. My ivory top and mustard velvet pants from Flying Tomato really stood out in these images! 

AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Hana_BlackSandBeach_19.jpg
AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Hana_BlackSandBeach_20.jpg

Sunshine, tan lines and black sand beaches are such a great combo! This particular honeymoon home was a favorite because you could hear the massive waves crashing onto the shore from bed. I mean, you can't really find a better sleep soundtrack than that, huh? 

In the photo above, I am wearing the Scorpio Bodysuit by For Love and Lemons, Kimono by Flying Tomato, and Wide Brim Boater Hat by San Diego Hat Company.

AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Hana_Waterfall_21.jpg

We also enjoyed staying in Hana, because it put us right next to waterfalls and a red sand beach.

Although tough to swim in, the red sand beach was so beautiful. I mean, come on, how often do you come across a red sand beach?

This *lush* jungle was located right beside our Honeymoon Home #2 and was the perfect backdrop for the Solid Flare Top and Pants by Pitusa.

Before leaving Hana, we wanted to stop and hike to see the Seven Sacred Pools and Waimoku Falls. Unfortunately, Seven Sacred Pools was closed for swimming this time around, but that was okay because we saved our energy for the hike to Waimoku Falls. If walking through a bamboo forest to reach a massive waterfall sounds like something you would be interested in, DO THIS HIKE! It was one of my most favorite hikes I have ever done - with the best waterfall reward in the end :)

Our Honeymoon Home #3 was a bed and breakfast located in Kula which is in the mountains at the base of Haleakala. We wanted to stay here so that the early morning sunrise drive wouldn't take so long, but we ended up LOVING the house we stayed at. The view from the balcony was unreal - you could see all of Maui. We wish we could have stayed here longer.

AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Kula_Sunset_30.jpg
AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Kula_Sunset_31.jpg

It was a bit colder in Kula compared to the rest of the island because of the elevation, so I was happy to have a sweater and pants by Flying Tomato that paired so well with my Loren Sunkissed shoes by 5yMedio

AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Kula_Sunset_32.jpg
AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Haleakala_Sunrise_33.jpg

The above photo was taken at Haleakala around 4:30AM - right as the sun was starting to peek above the horizon. It was so cold at the top, so for anyone who is planning to see a sunrise there: DRESS WARM! You are also required to reserve a parking spot at the top, so make sure to do that as well.

AstroBandit_Maui_Hawaii_JordanRose_Haleakala_Sunrise_34.jpg

Among the shivers, was a sense of so much happiness - I truly felt like I was above the clouds. I was captivated by the many colors that filled the sky as the sun rose - literally 360 degrees of hue heaven. For anyone considering this early morning adventure, do it!

Our final Honeymoon Home #4 was the Wailea Beach Resort - Marriott. We wanted to end our trip on a relaxing note, and oh my we relaxed SO WELL! Cocktails by the infinity pool and short drives to the many scenic beaches in Wailea was the perfect finale. There's also some amazing snorkeling in Wailea - which I highly recommend doing early before the wind and crowds pick up!

There I am on our hotel balcony (above) and enjoying a nice sunset (below) wearing the Milano bikini from Khongboon Swimwear.

For all of you couples in search of the perfect honeymoon - make sure it involves an infinity pool! This one was so serene during sunset.

Here we are at the end of the diary, finishing it off with our final sunset before boarding our 10PM flight to LAX. We drove through a random neighborhood and somehow ended up at this beach to catch a stormy sunset while I was wearing  a pale pink dress by Jealous Tomato

Sky High | Petersyn

~*Sky high*~ wearing the most ruffletastic outfit by Petersyn on an adventure with mi amor! We cruise this route a couple of times per week, not only because it is a few minutes from our home but we find it to be so meditative. A moment where we can unplug and take in those layers of mountains resting in front of the sunset. I love the light there, as well - and it really highlighted the amazing details in this look by Petersyn. Enjoy!

Life in the Lighthouse

AstroBandit_ShowMeYourMuMu_lacewhiterobe_1.jpg

I cannot believe it has already been four months since we moved into our little lighthouse in the woods. Time sure does fly by when you're having fun - so I'm trying to soak in every moment and document our life here as it soars on by. I've been slowly adding decor and making the house more *us*! There's still many things I have in mind to do, but I am so happy with the progress! I've also been adding more indoor greenery lately, and I love the life it brings into our home. Something to look at and watch progress as they grow each and every day. These big windows work wonders for them! Anyhow, here's a little glimpse into our home topped off with some lacey robe magic from Show Me Your Mumu.

Sunset Salsa | Big Sur

JordanRose_AstroBandit_Pitusa_BigSur_Sunset_WhiteRuffles_1.jpg

Nothing quite beats a sunset on the coast, especially when that coastal sunset happens in Big Sur while you are wearing layers of the softest white fabric, shakin' and movin' and feelin' all of the best vibes! I seriously cannot get enough of this top & skirt by Pitusa (and their entire shop, actually). Watch as I fall in love with the way the fabric moves to the sun setting behind the horizon - creating the most gorgeous golden glow!

Just Like a Fairytale | The Proposal

I have just returned home from a month-long adventure through the Netherlands, Germany and China. It was quite a journey, let me tell you! So much happened and so many memories were created - but this particular memory holds a huge place in my heart. 

AstroBandit_DariusTwin_Proposal_Kromlau_Germany_Rakotzbrucke_Bridge_Reflection_Ring_WhiteDress_1.jpg

It was the most beautiful evening at the Rakotzbr├╝cke bridge in Kromlau, Germany! The air was so still and the skies so clear, creating the most vivid reflection of the bridge on the water. This place was romantic indeed, and the perfect place to spend a sunset with Darius Twin.

AstroBandit_DariusTwin_Proposal_Kromlau_Germany_Rakotzbrucke_Bridge_Reflection_Ring_WhiteDress_2.jpg

This bridge was built in the mid-19th century and when reflected in the water, creates a ring.

AstroBandit_DariusTwin_Proposal_Kromlau_Germany_Rakotzbrucke_Bridge_Reflection_Ring_WhiteDress_4.jpg

AstroBandit_DariusTwin_Proposal_Kromlau_Germany_Rakotzbrucke_Bridge_Reflection_Ring_WhiteDress_6.jpg

So this is when the night became extremely special. Here I am, thinking all is, well, kind of 'normal.' Darren tells me we are doing a holding hands shot, which we nailed on the first try. But he tells me we didn't, and that we must continue shooting until it's just right!

AstroBandit_DariusTwin_Proposal_Kromlau_Germany_Rakotzbrucke_Bridge_Reflection_Ring_WhiteDress_7.jpg

So there I was standing on that log, waiting until the settings were right, when really he was reaching into his bag to grab a..... ring! He set his camera on a timer, and when he came towards me I was expecting him to grab my hand, but instead he got down on one knee! I was so surprised.

AstroBandit_DariusTwin_Proposal_Kromlau_Germany_Rakotzbrucke_Bridge_Reflection_Ring_WhiteDress_8.jpg

Of course I said yes. He's my companion, my love, my best friend, and everything I ever dreamed of and more. He picked the most magical moment to propose, because there was so much symbolism present at this location - the white dress, and most of all, the bridge's reflection creating a ring. My favorite stone is opal, so here is my vintage opal & diamond ring!

This will be a night I never forget.

Goblin Valley

Welcome to hoodooville, aka Goblin Valley - land of the most bizarre rock formations out there in Green River, Utah. We arrived right as the landscape was lit with that golden hour sun, and we wondered off into the park, admiring all of the unique hoodoos! 

JordanRose_AstroBandit_GoblinValley_Sunset_1.jpg
JordanRose_AstroBandit_GoblinValley_Sunset_2.jpg

We definitely got lost a few times throughout our expedition, but that's because our sense of direction was completely throwm off as we wandered aimlessly, ha! It was impossible not to, because every direction we turned was the most mesmerizing view.

JordanRose_AstroBandit_GoblinValley_Sunset_3.jpg
JordanRose_AstroBandit_GoblinValley_Sunset_4.jpg

The sky graced us with a scenic sunset as we found the best point to view it from. This is the location we chose to set down our blanket, jam some tunes on our speaker, and crack open a brew (or two!). It was a dreamy one!

JordanRose_AstroBandit_GoblinValley_Sunset_5.jpg

I felt more than alive. 

JordanRose_AstroBandit_GoblinValley_Sunset_6.jpg

And so did that sky.

Goblin Valley was even more extraordinary than I had imagined!

Southwestern Wanderers

'Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road' says Jack Kerouac, and I raise my glass to that.

AstroBandit_ZionNationalPark_FringeDenimJacket_Cheers_JordanRose_GoldenHour_1.jpg

There are people like me who find themselves by wandering. By welcoming a world of their own with each and every step they take, without limits or boundaries; because by wandering, they are experiencing, discovering, and understanding themselves and the world around them better. They are free spirits. They live to love and love to live in peace and in liberation.

I recently returned from a long road trip through the Southwest, passing through California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. That's 6 states in the span of a little more than a week! So, I've decided to put together a little recap so you can feel like you were right there with me.

AstroBandit_JordanRose_DariusTwin_DarrenPearson_Zion_Cheers_Views_Couple_Love_1.jpg

Here I am enjoying a glass of Liberated's Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc at Zion National Park in Utah after a long day of travel. We stayed here for golden hour, the sunset, and even the starry night sky, because 'half the park is after dark.' What a bright moment, just look at those stars!

AstroBandit_JordanRose_DariusTwin_DarrenPearson_Zion_Views_Couple_Love_Stars_LongExposure.jpg

Before our Zion travels, we stopped by the Valley of Fire for a night. Those vibrant red sandstone formations are all over the park - each unique in their own way. This one looked like cheese ^_^

AstroBandit_JordanRose_ValleyofFire_Fashion_NativeRose.jpg

Here I am drooling over fall in Zion - we never see leaves change to vibrant yellow and orange hues in Southern California (since there doesn't seem to be seasons here). 

AstroBandit_JordanRose_Zion_ZionNationalPark_Fall_FallLeaves_Fashion.jpg

Before leaving Zion, we stopped to defy gravity for a little bit. Look at those textures!

AstroBandit_JordanRose_Zion_ZionNationalPark_DenimJacket_DenimSkirt_NativeRose_Asos.jpg

Now it's on to the next location: Page AZ - where we will see both Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon. Let's just say many hours of listening to really good music and non-stop staring outside the window, wondering how something could be so beautiful.

AstroBandit_JordanRose_Roadtrip_Fashion.jpg

Well, we made it to our next destination: Horseshoe Bend. And to celebrate, we had a glass of Liberated. 

AstroBandit_JordanRose_HorseshoeBend_Cheers_Sunset_Arizona_Wanderlust_Travel.jpg

While, of course, taking in those stunning views. 

AstroBandit_JordanRose_HorseshoeBend_Cheers_Sunset_Arizona_Wanderlust_Travel_2.jpg

It was pretty much a dream.

AstroBandit_JordanRose_DariusTwin_DarrenPearon_HorseshoeBend_Cheers_Sunset_Arizona_Wanderlust_Travel_Couple_Love.jpg

The next morning, we stopped by Antelope Canyon to see the location we had been curious about for a while. Let's just say it was like walking through a maze of sandstone art. You can only access it by tour, but luckily they give you a lot of time to take photos!

AstroBandit_JordanRose_AntelopeCanyon_Arizon_FauxFur_Pink_RedRock_Fashion_1.jpg

Next up on the itinerary: Monument Valley in Utah. Here I am trying to blend in with the environment. Don't those formations look like hands?! 

AstroBandit_MonumentValley_JordanRose_BlueHour_Sunset_RockFormations_1.jpg

Here I am reliving my favorite old westerns by John Ford. Yes, that is me on the horse!

AstroBandit_ValleyOfFire_JordanRose_Horse_OnaHorse_RockFormations_JohnWayne_Wanderlust.jpg

Well, now that we've seen Monument Valley, it's time to move onto our next (and final!) destination: White Sands. But first, let's stop here because the golden hour light looks so dreamy!

AstroBandit_JordanRose_Wanderlust_RoadTrip.jpg

And, let's stay for the sun to set because look at how big that moon is!

AstroBandit_JordanRose_DreamCatcher_HoldingTheMoon.jpg

Well, we finally made it to the last location on the list - a place I have been dying to see for as long as I can remember in a small little town called Alamogordo, New Mexico. 

AstroBandit_JordanRose_WhiteSands_Dancing_WhiteSandsNationalMonument_GypsumSand_Fashion_1.jpg

Nothing but pure joy. White Sands, you are one majestic beauty.

AstroBandit_JordanRose_WhiteSands_Wine_WhiteSandsNationalMonument_GypsumSand_KendallJackson_1.jpg

One final glass of Liberated to end the trip the right way.

AstroBandit_JordanRose_WhiteSands_Dancing_WhiteSandsNationalMonument_GypsumSand_Fashion_2.jpg

Which left me dancing and feeling alive!

AstroBandit_JordanRose_WhiteSands_Dancing_WhiteSandsNationalMonument_GypsumSand_Fashion_Sunset_FauxFur_1.jpg

And in love.

AstroBandit_JordanRose_WhiteSands_WhiteSandsNationalMonument_GypsumSand_Sunset_Couple_HoldingHands_love.jpg

'Peace, love, and liberation' -- three words that perfectly describe my life on the road, traveling throughout the Southwest where some of the most beautiful locations in the world exist. Thank you, Liberated, for the journey and for your crisp tasting Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasi Malibu jumpsuit // Shot by Darius Twin

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be invited by MAK Center on a private tour of the Sheats-Goldstein Residence designed by John Lautner. This iconic location appears in many movies, such as The Big Lebowski & Charlie's Angels. One of my favorite features is the James Turrell exhibit located below the house - accessible by many stunning sets of stairs that guide you through an enchanted forest with an occasional *epic* view of the city. Inside of the exhibit is Turrell's wonderful use of neon lights and portals to showcase the starry skies at night - like, how is this place even real? Other notable favorites (although all was perfection) were his private underground club, the living room facing the pool, and the infinity tennis court. I would love to wake up every morning and take in those views of both the LA skyline and this masterpiece of a house! Hope you enjoyed the Astro tour ^_^

Thank you so much MAK Center for the invite - I'm looking forward to the Mak Games coming up on the 18th!
