A Giant Leap of Faith.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I'm currently sitting at Verve Coffee Roasters in DTLA, and I'm writing this blog entry with an entirely new perspective and feeling. Today marks the start of a new, very exciting, and refreshing chapter in my life, where I've taken a chance and left full time work to focus on my blog. It's immensely thrilling/liberating to say the least, and equal parts nerve-wracking/humbling. I've also made the decision to move back to the Bay Area from LA to be closer to love[...]

I'm really excited to share this with you because I've worked tirelessly on it and I'm very proud of what we've been able to achieve thus far. I recently started #EXPERIENCEXPERIMENT, which is essentially a curated experience for influencers, sponsored by brands. I was lucky enough to round up some amazing brands and an epic group of people to launch the first experience, and it is my pleasure to share the recap with you all. This is the first of many, and I can't wait for the next. A big thank you to all the sponsoring bran[...]

Last week I had the pleasure of attending/shooting the Urban Decay x Vogue x Mikoh x Smith + Mara event at the UD flagship store to celebrate the release of their already sold out #NAKEDSMOKY palette. The setup of the event was beautiful, complete with smoke machines, great music, delicious bites, and drinks all around. In attendance were some beautiful power women in the industry, and it was great to meet and mingle with them while snapping photos along the way. read more[...]

Clinique Is Definitely Summer Ready.

Yesterday I made my way over to Los Cerritos Mall to partake in the Clinique Colour Pro event with Stephanie Flor. They had 3 Summer Looks prepared: Power Burst, Innocent Flush, and Summer Chic. What Stephanie did on me was a mix of Power Burst which entailed a bold lip, and Summer Chic which had a dewy highlighting element. The products she used on me here are Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Poppy Pop and the Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight, and I actually really love both products. From afar, the Poppy Pop lipstick looks very[...]

Madewell x Spotify x Kelela

This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of being invited to the Madewell x Spotify in-store event ft. a performance by Kelela. The clothes were beautiful, the food was great, and the drink options were really tasty, but what really set the night for me was Kelela's impeccable performance. My only call-out would be that it was too short, but that's only because her incredible voice and presence left me longing for so much more. Thankfully, she's on Spotify, so I now have her music on repeat. How I had never heard of her befo[...]

Dose of Nostalgia.

Posted In: Adventures | Around Town
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a pool party that ended up being a healthy dose of both new and old for me. The scenery was new, the faces were new, the music was new(ish) ... but the feeling they all brought were the same as those house parties I used to love back when I was in high school. Good food, it wasn't too crowded, and there were big smiles and positive/happy drunks (for the most part) all around me. Not to mention I was vibing with the music so much that I actually broke out in solo dance for[...]
