Poppy Mouth

The picture above is from the Poppy Reserve, a place I was lucky enough to visit while in California. Poppies are one of my favorite flowers; it may have something to do with this movie. The color is so rich, vibrant, and inspiring. I can’t help but see the world in shades of makeup, andContinue Reading
