My name is Francesca Smith (aka @frankvinyl over in instagram)
And I live in San Diego California
And my most favourite thing to do in this area is Roller skate, head to the beach to watch the sunset
The first thing I do when I wake up is take the pups out then head to the gym or outdoors to workout
and at the end of the day I like to cuddle up with the husband and dogs, drink tea and watch netflix
My most favourite thing about my job is that I get share awesome inspiring brands with everyone. I also love that I get to travel and have my own schedule.
If I wasn’t doing my current job I would probably be a travel photographer. It would definitely have to have travel involved either way.
Every day I count my blessings
The best thing about California is the beautiful weather, amazing nature and the relaxed happy people.
If I wasn’t living in San DiegoI would live in Hawaii or Northern California.
Because both these places make me feel so inspired. The nature is just beautiful and for photos they are both epic.
Brands that I am loving right now are Luna & Rose (of course), Reformation and Spell. Loving any brand that is making an effort to make the world a better place.
One piece of style advice is never wear anything that doesn't feel like YOU and always make sure you feel confident and happy in what you are wearing.
I never leave the house without my quay matted black sunglasses or my cell phone.
I am currently listening toShura, Forevher
When I’m not listening to this, I’m reading the new Brene Brown book Braving the Wilderness. She’s amazing.
The best piece of advice I ever received was "Don’t worry what everyone else is thinking about you. Chances are they are most likely too worried thinking about themselves to even think about you". I think this is just such a relieving piece of advice and always helps me get out of my head when I'm feeling insecure. Helps me realize I should try and make other people feel at peace and happy instead of worrying they won't like me or judging me somehow. It's especially great to think about before entering a room full of strangers by yourself.
Thanks so much Francesca! We love following your travel and beautiful outfits that you put together.... Hope to see you in San Diego super soon!

You hear us talking about our 'Plant Dyed Apparel' but what does that actually mean and how on earth does one dye clothing with plants you ask!? I know, it's a buzzy concept and one that I too couldn't quite believe when I first heard about it either. But guess what? This is where it all started! Plants are where the original colours started... and we are here to bring it back - no chemicals added!
My Mother in law first made this for me many moons ago and it was instant love at first bite! Tangy yet fresh, more-ish yet healthy. This lemon tomato pasta has all the ingredients to warrant being on the weekly meal schedule without too much hassle. Hey, it's even good enough to wow your pals for dinner on Friday night! Serve it up with a fresh garden salad or opt for a carbo load with some toasted ciabatta with fresh garlic butter? Mmmm hmmm. If this doesn't have you hungry for dinner... I'm not sure we can be friends. Bon Appetit friends x
