#Obsessions : 10 Things I Can’t Live Without – Cassandra McFarland

CASS COL.001

  Name : Cassandra  Hometown : Denman Island, British Columbia Zodiac Sign : Virgo Secret Talent? : Belly Dancing What are 10 things you can’t live without? : 1. My Monthly Horoscope (I’m a bit of an Astrology dork and I love to plan, so anything that helps me plan out my month is always a must) 2. The Pacific coast (I’ve always lived steps from the Pacific ocean; It keeps me grounded and connected to myself) 3. The ‘Notes’ app on my iPhone (Its actually slightly horrifying how much I use this app, I will write anything from shopping lists, songs I like, text/email drafts, love notes, you name it. I use it at least 3x a day) 4. Salmon Sashimi/ Blue Crab hand rolls from Hama Sushi (One of my favorite local Venice sushi spots. I made it my mission to find the best blue crab hand roll in LA, I really did, and this one takes the cake) 5. James Perse White tees (I will literally sleep in them and wear them the next day. Whoops! The best hands down) 6. California Cabernet (I love a good Cali Cab before any Italian or French wines, always a west coast girl) 7. To-Do Lists (Being true to my Zodiac sign, I love a good To-do list. I make them daily. I don’t always finish them, but my intent is strong) 8. Mario Badescu Rose Water and Herb facial spray (CANNOT get enough, I spray this morning, day and night. It even sets your makeup!) 9. Citizens of humanity Avedon Skinny Jeans (Anyone that knows me knows that I can’t live without a great pair of Jeans, I wear these until I can’t anymore, and sometimes buy them In bulk) 10. Spotify (I basically have a different playlist for every day of the week, and even time of day. kind of obsessive)

ABPRINCI1

Often times when we do a photo shoot, tons of gorgeous pics end up on the cutting room floor…and when you shoot a beauty like Angelina, it’s a damn shame!  So we thought we’d share some of these with you…after all, beautiful pictures are meant to be seen!  xx

IMG_4351PRINCI

 We’re back! Our website is alive & kicking and better than ever….and growing every day! Of course this means constant photo shoots…and what better location than Abbot Kinney? Our neighborhood is a huge part of who we are…we’ve been on this street for over a decade and have watched in total amazement as it’s evolved into one of the most talked-about streets in the world! We’ve loved our hood since day one…and in an effort to honor and celebrate our eclectic, magical, bohemian beach town, we do all of our web shoots on and around Abbot Kinney. The crowds, the cars, the construction, the alleys, the graffiti…we love it all & we use it all. Makes for the perfect backdrop if you ask us! Come visit the shop the next time you’re in Venice, or check us out at www.principessavenice.com xx
