2013 Year in Review

Kelly
January 09

And I’m back (well kind of)… 2013 was definitely the most challenging year of my life personally, and professionally it was one of the most rewarding (hello COVER). I will be posting here now and again but I’ve decided its all about quality over quantity, so posting maybe less than before, but hopefully you will like what you see. I was super honored to work with so many countless talented individuals, and the friends I’ve made through this crazy business are definitely keepers.

To say I lived about 10 life times worth of experiences in a single year is no exaggeration. Leaving an abusive relationship, coming to terms with the fact that “friends” chose not to believe me, and cleaning house of all toxic and negative forces in my life was difficult (to say the least) but VERY necessary. At the end of it, I’ve found my spiritual path and I’ve created a life where I am so insanely happy and fulfilled every day I can’t quite believe my life is my life. I am officially yoga certified (more on that later) and I will say yoga and specifically my yoga teachers Jenni Rawlings and Gigi Synder saved me from a lifetime of unhappiness and inauthenticity. I am VERY excited for 2014 and my resolution for this year is simple: NO COMPROMISES. Thank you ALL. Follow your heart, your passion and may 2014 be your year!!!

I’m super excited to announce the latest Flutter Magazine is out online here and in PRINT out today (I will be getting my hands on a copy within the hour, check me on Instagram @kellyoshiro if you want a peek). I have two things in the magazine, a farm to table dinner shot in apple orchard (remember this backstage post?) which you can check out HERE. Shot by Nancy Neil with food by the Paper Palate (um, pumpkin tacos anyone?). Cambria Wine generously provided libations.

My second story was a cute little DIY for making dried confetti flower petals shot by Arna Bee. Kim the editor of Flutter, Joy of Joy de Vivre and I had fun playing confetti tossers… check it, HERE. I’ll be posting the full scope soon and THANK YOU to everyone who contributed.

Guys, one of my favorite tables from this year has finally been published (this was shot way back in January with the Santa Barbara Magazine story and the spring dinner party for Design*Sponge). Ayda Robana did a seriously amazing charcuterie table and I added in citrus sourced from the estate (oh, to have your own private citrus grove with perfectly manicured lawn walkways). Photos by the amazing, and oh so lovely, Nancy Neil. You can check out the story on Style Me Pretty Living right here.

So I know I said I wouldn’t post any more wedding stuff, but hey that’s my flowers on the COVER of C Weddings!!! Super stoked to have worked with long time photographer contributor here at SB Chic, Nancy Neil. Since this was suppose to be fall, even though we shot this in May, I tried to keep it seasonal with anemones, ranunculus, explosion grass, and umbrella fern for the bouquet, all generously provided by Florabundance.

This dress was my favorite, its Valentino and has the most insane beading on it. Also, it has pockets (all wedding dresses should have pockets for pete’s sake!). I want this dress so bad. Be sure to check out the 10 page editorial in the mag. Thanks to Nancy & the C Weddings team for having me!
