Hanna Gebrehiwet, has the coolest hair I’ve ever seen in my life, but to be honest, what first attracted to me Hanna was her instagram handle, @ourfriendhanna. I thought, a girl with a name like that has to be as innately cool and muse-worthy as her iconic hair. Guess what, she is.
We scooped up the and recent Seattle to Los Angeles transplant for a 5am beachy sunrise shoot (with no complaints for an early call time in site), where we chatted about our love for dogs, the need for affordable legal advice for creatives such as ourselves, and OUR MUTUAL love for nerding-out over food (specifically how America has ruined it and how we should be using food as medicine) with the poli-sci graduate.
WE'LL BE DONATING 10% OF OUR ONLINE SALES TO HANNA'S ORGANIZATION OF CHOICE THIS WEEK! READ ON TO LEARN MORE.

My pashmina, it's beautiful, comfortable, and multi-useful. I'm really grateful for it.

Waking up in a house on the beach, doors open, with people I love around, fridge stocked annnd beach activities.

Any self care rituals?
Something intriguing that you want to learn more about?
Food, what my body reacts well to and where the food is coming from. It goes hand in hand with learning about my health.
What charity are you choosing to donate to and why?
I'm choosing national bail out because women should be free while awaiting trial. More and more women are being arrested and many do not have the means to pay for bail while awaiting their court dates. Many are mothers or providers and they should be with their families while they are in this process.

EVERYDAY AN AVERAGE OF 700,000 PEOPLE ARE CONDEMNED TO LOCAL JAILS AND SEPARATED FROM THEIR FAMILIES. A MAJORITY OF THEM ARE THERE SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY BAIL. NATIONAL BAIL OUT IS AN ORGANIZATION WORKING TO END MONEY BAIL AND IS HELPING TO BAIL PEOPLE OUT IN THE MEAN TIME. IN ADDITION TO OVER $9 BILLION WASTED TO INCARCERATE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF NO CRIME, PRE-TRIAL INCARCERATION HAS CATASTROPHIC IMPACTS ON FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES.
