House of DVF - Episode 7 Recap

We are now down to the final three, Alli, Cat & I. In this episode we are given the task to help dress some of the VIP's coming to the DVF awards. Alli & I end up getting stuck in an elevator while we are trying to set up. I completely lose it in the elevator. I become very shaken up & have a hard time letting go of it once we are released. For the first bit of the VIP dressing I am a complete space cadet. I also didn't want to overwhelm the people coming to get dressed. If it's just one client, do you really think she wants three girls bombarding her? Those situations make me feel awkward. I kept my space, but as a result Jessica pulled me aside & gave me some advice. She told me I need to be more aggressive & to really come out of my shell.. She also mentioned that I seemed like I was on another planet.. ha! Anyways, the talk definitely helped & I feel like I did a better job once more VIP's started coming in. That night I got to have some mom time since my mom was visiting me in NYC. It always makes me feel better when I get to hang with my mom because she always has the best advice for me. We decided to spend our night at a tattoo shop where my mom got a little cross on her arm. At the DVF awards we were all given tasks & my task was to interview some of the honoree's & guests. This was really my time to step out of my shell & show the DVF team what I was capable of. Jessica said I did an amazing job with my interviews.. even with my last minute Naomi Campbell one! I was definitely nervous because I didn't know I was going to get to interview her, but I remained calm & handled it like a professional. Once the show began I was given an assignment to take photos for the DVF social media. Overall, the DVF awards was a very good night for me & I was able to show the team that I can shine in those situations. The next day at work the team sat us down & made us talk about why we would be a better brand ambassador than the other girls. Obviously, this was awkward. We don't want to put each other down, but we also really want the job. We are still down to the final three & in the next episode the brand ambassador will be revealed. I still can't believe the season is already coming to an end, it went by so fast! Be sure to tune into the season finale to see what happens next & who will be the next DVF ambassador.

As you may or may not know, I have been a fan of hair extensions for years! I always used the keratin bond individuals until now. I recently tried tape extensions & I am seriously in love. First off, it takes about an hour or less to put in, compared to keratin, which normally takes several hours. Removing the hair is super simple & non-damaging. Even though these extensions are easy, you still want to get a professional to apply/remove. The hair I am wearing now is from a brand called Glam Seamless. I have never wore tape extensions before, so I can't compare to other brands, but what I can say is that the quality of this hair is like nothing I have had before. I had to dye my extensions to get it the perfect shade to match my color, & the hair still feels like velvet. It's beyond soft & mixes perfectly with my actual hair. One of the issues I had with extensions in the past, was that the hair was ALWAYS shedding. My Glam Seamless extensions don'y shed at all.. They also don't pull on your hair & since it's tape, it's not uncomfortable when you go to sleep. I remember with the keratin bonds, for the first week or two sleeping would be such a pain because the bonds would hurt my head.

House of DVF - Episode 6 Recap

Episode 6 started with Leigh & I saying our final goodbye to Chantal. Once Leigh & I got back upstairs to the other girls, we were all asked to come into Diane's office where we would be given a new task. Diane & Stefani explained how our new task would take place in Boston & we would be setting up/running a sample sale. We also had to do all the promo for the sale. We were given 2 Fiat's covered in DVF print to help us get around Boston & spread the work about the sale. Cat & I were paired together to promote the sample sale. We were able to put our differences/opinions behind us & just focus on the job. The second day we were in Boston was the sample sale. We had no idea how much work we actually had to do. There was literally a million boxes to unpack & organize. We were able to get it done & make Stefani pleased before customers started coming in. In the beginning of the sale I seemed to be more focused on cleaning & organizing, rather than making sales. Stefani gave me a little pep talk & motivated me to be more aggressive. As soon as I got confident & stepped out of my shell, I started making sales & helping a lot of customers. Once we were back in NYC, Diane sent us to the New Yorkers For Kids charity event to see how we carry ourselves & represent the brand. Overall, I really enjoyed the charity. Leigh & I won this amazing basket full of Dior beauty products. The following day, Diane has us all in her office to go over how we did & to discuss why we felt we should be the brand ambassador. Stefani told me how she really respected me, especially because I never used anything I was personally going through as an excuse with work. Diane asked to see Leigh privately in her car before the Time's 100 event. Diane ended up saying good bye to Leigh. I was really upset to see Leigh go since we had become so close in the program. When saying goodbye I let her know how thankful I was for our friendship & that she really helped me get through a tough time in my life. Leigh & I will always be friends, & I can't wait to see what she does next! I know she will make a name for herself in the fashion industry, she is such a talented girl. Be sure to tune in next week for another brand new episode of House of DVF!

My Trip To The Broad

Yesterday my boyfriend & I went to The Broad museum downtown. The museum was beautiful. The architecture of the building was art itself. It was amazing to see all of my favorite artists under one roof. They had work from Basquiat, Keith Haring, Warhol & more.. If you live in the Los Angeles area & are a fan of pop are like myself, I highly suggest you go. Being surrounded by such monumental pieces of art is so inspiring.

House of DVF - Episode 5 Recap

Episode 5 of House of DVF was full of tears, drama & girl fights. In the beginning of the episode you got to hear about my breakup & how he bashed me publicly. Jessica brought it to Diane's attention when they saw it in a tabloid. Just to be clear, this was over 9 months ago & I am currently in a very happy/healthy relationship. The next day at work, after we had discussed our next project with Diane, Cat confronted me about tabloid & I freak out. The reason why I got up from the table & started cursing was because I had made it VERY clear that I did not want to discuss the incident on the show & that they had made me talk enough about my breakup. But of course, the producers didn't care about my request/feelings. Diane asked me to have a 1 on 1 with her at the Freedom Tower. This was the first time I got to connect with Diane & show her another side of me. She gave me amazing advice & made me feel a lot better. I was so nervous that she was going to give me the boot! It was a relief when the meeting was only positive & to help me grow. Leigh & I became very close in the House of DVF program. Everyday after work we would go to one of our rooms, order room service & chat for hours. I don't think the other girls were fond of our friendship & it really bothered me when Cat told Leigh that she was obsessed with me. Leigh was really there for me when I was going through a hard time & that's why she got upset when it was brought up. Leigh knew I didn't want to discuss this & that it hurt me for production to do it behind my back when I had asked them not to. Just because you have a close friendship with someone it doesn't mean you are obsessed with them.  In the second half of the episode we start shooting our looks for the travel project. While shooting my look I struggled with my outfit choice since it was 5 sizes too big! I was able to make it work & the photo turned out really nice. At the final location, after Chantal had got her photo, we all sat down & the drama just poured onto the table. I confronted Cat about her comments to Leigh. She told me how she thinks I am a bad influence because I am "dark" & "edgy". She then went on about Leigh & our friendship. First off, just because I have tattoo's it doesn't mean I am goth or "dark". Tons of people have tattoo's & it's wrong to assume someone is a certain way because of them. Secondly, don't put people down because of their age or their opinions. If someone feels a certain way than let them feel it! It's not your opinion & there is no reason for it to affect you. At the end of the group talk I say "some of us won't get along & we just have to be ok with that." The episode ends with us getting to see our designs for the first time, showing our travel photos & saying goodbye to Chantal. Tune in this Sunday for another NEW episode! 10:00 on E!

Life In The Factory

"I wish andy warhol was still alive. In my eyes, he was one of the truest creations we've ever had. What he did was very serious with a whimsical sense of humor. He laughed at the critics but never under minded them. Some understand, some don't. " - ModSun 

About a month ago we filmed a music video for Mod's new song "Andy Warhol" where I got to be Edie Sedgwick & he played Warhol. The video was shot by Naomi Christie on a super 8mm film camera. I love the whole vibe of the video.. it turned out incredible! Check out some BTS photo's & the video! Enjoy..

Going through old journal entries trying to pick out pages I want to put in my book. It's weird reading through old journals, brings you right back to the moment you were writing it. I was a pretty depressed kid… I forgot how dark some of my journals were.. ha! I can't wait to finish the book I am working on. It will allow people to see another side of me & get to know me on a more personal level. My biggest hope with allowing myself to be so open, is that people will be able to relate & get something out of it. I want people to know the struggles I have gone through & how I was able to cope & grow from the experiences. I think it's important to share my journey. Today I am shooting for Elle Girl Japan.. Excited to put a few looks together for the spread. I miss Japan. I want to go back soon! Such an amazing & inspiring place.

Life thoughts on a Tuesday night.

Life is strange. Everyday we are given a fresh start. It doesn't matter how bad your day is because there is always tomorrow. There is always a glimpse of light, some hope just around the corner. We have to hold on to our optimism & faith. We have to believe in the path we choose. They only person controlling your journey is yourself, so choose your path wisely. Make good decisions, be kind to others, do things for others without expecting something in return & always come from love. We deal with enough stress that comes with everyday life, you don't need to add to it by being hard on yourself. We are all too hard on ourselves. Write a list of gratitude every morning & be thankful for the life you get to live. We are here for a reason, don't throw it away. We are all beautiful. Turn your flaws into your perfections. Treat others the way you want to be treated. We attract the energy we put out.

House of DVF - Episode 4 Recap

Last night was episode 4 of my House of DVF adventure. The episode started with Ali and I wanting to have a fun girls night, but ending up at a lesbian bar with the other girls. Once we got to the bar, the vibes were already a bit tense. The girls were confronting Cat about how they felt about her attitude in the program & towards the group. Everyone was able to speak their minds & let Cat know how they were feeling. Cat handled the chat with grace & understood where we were coming from. I think it was good for us to be upfront & hopefully we will be able to have a fresh start. In this episode we were given a new task of learning about  DVF eyewear & working at the eyewear trade show. Before the trade show, Leigh, Chantal & I went around the city & practiced our pitch with strangers. I have never been a fan of selling, so this was good practice for me. While coming up with ideas for the trade show, Cree's idea's seemed to be a bit off brand. Even though she is an amazing illustrator, her style might not be on brand. At the trade show, Cree decided to do her own thing, which ended up reflecting poorly on the group. Overall, the trade show was a success. We made tons of sales & had really good feedback by the people stopping by our booth. At the end of the episode Diane took us to tea & Cree asked for some alone time with her to resign from the program. It takes a lot of strength to admit that the job isn't for you. I give Cree major cred for staying true to herself. Now that it's down to 5 of us, the competition is getting intense. Be sure to tune in this Sunday for another new episode! If you live on the East Coast, I will be live tweeting during the episode, so send me all your questions & comments!
