welcome

 to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

After a recent photo shoot in the studio, I was left with the props: tons of beautiful peonies and other foliage foraged from a friend's yard. Feeling super excited that I got such beautiful blooms, I took my spoils and jumped in front of the camera. Here are the results. I like to call the above: Crazy 4 Peonies as everyone's got peonies on the brain lately. To change things up slightly, I also added a quotable from Angela Lansbury, in honor of Monday's post. That woman knows her stuff. Self-Expression 03 / Peonies / Bourbon and Goose

Angela Lansbury says it best. It's good to exercise your option to say no.
