Ciao Manhattan

In just a few hours, I will be getting picked up to head to LAX for my flight to NYC!! I'm going to be living in NYC on & off till early May. I am so excited to get out of town for a bit. I am working on a very cool project that I can't wait to share with all of you! Sometimes it's good to get away for a bit & clear your head.. this opportunity couldn't of come at a better time. New York is gonna be freezing!! I have overpacked, but hopefully I brought the right gear. NYC is one of my favorite places to visit & I have spent a lot of time there over the years.. Decided to add some flashback photo's from other trips I have taken in the past to NYC.. Be sure to keep checking in because I will be updating my blog a lot while I am away…

24 HR Vegas Vacation

If you want to know what it feels like to be exhausted, do a 24 hour Vegas trip. On Tuesday morning, my friend Tashah & I drove to Vegas. On the way we got pulled over & I got a speeding ticket for going 100 mph. Don't remember the last time I got a speeding ticket, but luckily the officer was nice & lowered my speed, so my fine won't be as severe. Once we got to Vegas, we went straight to the trade show to meet up with the crew of Happiness Brand. We hung at the trade show for a little & then went back to the Venetian hotel. While hanging at the hotel, we shot tons of photos in the room & got ready for a night out. Our night started at Sushi Samba & ended at the Hakkasan Hudson Jeans event. I think I got about an hour of sleep. I guess all the red bull & espresso shots at dinner wasn't the best idea… ha ha! Got up around 7:30 & headed back to LA. Once I made it home, I had to get ready for my shoot with ELLE Girl Japan. By the end of the day I was DEAD. Felt amazing to get in bed last night.. Don't remember the last time I fell asleep so quick. ha! Today I have a big meeting & I can't wait to see how it goes. Went to Dry Bar this morning for a quick blowout.. have to be on my A game today..

Self Love

Just when I was starting to feel better… I end up getting worse. Not a lot worse, but I had to pick up an inhaler today to help with my coughing. I am the worst at resting. I feel like I have so much I need to get done & that I am behind on.. it's driving me crazy! Decided to come to my moms & spend the weekend relaxing at her house. I am forcing myself to be in bed & get healthy, weather I want to or not.. Besides all the sick crap, I am doing pretty good. Yesterday was the first day in a long time where I looked in the mirror & actually felt beautiful. Girls are so hard on themselves.. I know I am. I will seriously find any little thing wrong & obsess over it.. Usually my obsession is with my skin.. But sometimes.. even if it's just for a day.. I need to let go of those feelings & obsessions & just love myself. Not look for imperfections.. Just be grateful for being alive, for my health and for being where I am today. We should all be a little easier on ourselves.. Life is too short not to..

Bronchitis & strep.. what an awful combo! I am on day 2 of my antibiotics & I am slowly starting to feel better. Thank god for the E channel & their Sex & The City marathons.. I get so bored sitting at home & resting.. It's hard to not be on the move, I get restless. Tomorrow i'm back to work.. shooting for Pylo at 9:00 & then going to the For Love & Lemons event at night.

One of my favorite things to buy is a good jacket! Jackets are easy & all you need to turn a basic look into something with more edge.
