emma hoareau is the stunning parisian brit behind the blog lolita says so. i first discovered emma when she was featured on into the gloss’ first #itgtopshelfie, or their version of the top shelf for us regular people! emma is a photographer, writer, and editor with an extremely impressive resume, but what i love most is her incredible blog. her imagery is so bright, clean, and dreamy and i trust her opinions on beauty products and fashion alike. if you’re in need of some fresh inspiration, i highly recommend lolita says so.
how strange, to find in real life, the very things that inspire you. this week, while spending time in palm springs, i drove by the building above. hotel california. months ago, i found this picture on a blog and immediately saved it. hotel california is one of my favorite songs, as well as my sister’s, and california itself has always been a major part of my life. how strange, it seems, to be driving along in a place i have not been for at least a decade, and see this building that i loved so much. it could have been anywhere. but there it was. how strange, to find this place on the day the world should lose glenn frey, the very writer of the song.
“any time of year, you can find it here.” like something deep within my soul, the hotel california made itself known to me. part of its magic is the eeriness of the song, the building, the desert itself.

very similar to the free people blog, bldg25, is the urban outfitters blog, or uo blog. free people and urban outfitters are owned by the same parent company, urbn inc., which also owns anthropologie, bhldn, and terrain. while the two blogs have some similarities, the material on uo is more music and interview focused. the imagery is just as good as bldg25 and i am always losing track of time as i peruse uo’s pages.
