Yesterday was the Friday before Fourth of July and a bunch of my girlfriends had the day off because of the Holiday! We decided to take a small road trip to Orange County to The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach! It was gorgeous! It is a 5 star Luxury Hotel with so many different sections! I had a room at the Bungalow, so that’s where my girlfriends and I stayed and changed and got ready!
I first found out about Lisa Blue Swimwear about a month ago. I looked at their bikinis and cover-ups and I thought that their suits were so beautiful! What I really liked about Lisa Blue was that they had matching pattern cover-ups to their bikinis, which is pretty hard to find! I feel that cover-ups are difficult to match, and they are such an awkward pieces to shop for! The reason why they are awkward for me is because you really don’t wear them for too long at a pool party/beach, so the ones I have are really not as cute or perfect matches to any of my swimsuits! Lisa Blue on the other hand carries patterned, stunning, matching cover ups that go perfectly with your bikini!
Hey guys! Fourth of July is coming up and I am super excited because it is such a fun holiday to spend with your friends and family and most of all it is SUMMER TIME! My favorite season of the year! I will be posting a lot more blog posts of outfit ideas because there are different outfits depending on what activity you’re going to be doing! This outfit is more of an evening, sunset, rooftop BBQ, party outfit!
Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. Not only is it a day of relaxation because normally I don’t have much work to do, but the Farmers market is in town! I like to go to the Melrose Place Farmers Market on Melrose Place. It’s not overcrowded like the Hollywood one and they have great fresh flowers, organic fruits and veggies, and freshly made juices! It was really hot today, 90 degrees fahrenheit so I was sweating! Good thing I took off my extensions because that would cause me to be even more hot!
It’s been exactly 12 days since I’ve been sober! I haven’t had a single drop of my favorite champagne Dom Perignon Rose, or my usual cocktail, Grey Goose soda. I am starting this journey because I realized that I don’t need alcohol to have a fabulous time, nor do I need alcohol to better my life, or accomplish my mission in life which is to be a better person. I went down that path many many times, crazy party nights, staying up until sunrise and I saw my face change.
Tonight I had the opportunity to see TED 2, a sequel that a lot of us have been waiting for since TED 2. Filled with tons of adult humor, Seth MacFarlane does it again! He makes this cutesy, cuddly teddy bear so vulgar, yet, TED is so hard NOT to love! I don’t really remember much of the first one since I saw it once and a long time ago, but the second one was quite entertaining! My manager at Maker Studios reserved for me two tickets to an advanced screening of TED 2 at iPic Theatre in Westwood.
So today I decided I didn’t want to do a fashion post, a beauty post, or a fitness post, but I really wanted to take the time to do something that comes from my heart. There’s a reason behind why I write in this blog. It isn’t just for me to look at, it isn’t something for me to become “famous” on, nor is it a platform to show off what I have. But the reason why I even bother to do this blog, is to share with you guys my thoughts, my ideas, my inspirations, all through my writing, and my photos. Sometimes it’s really hard to just slow down, and breathe, and look around, and I find it truly hard to do that especially in the industry that I work in! The world that we live in today is filled with social media, new trends, and constant images of what’s being told as “beautiful.” This is why I have my blog.
Last night I attended two events. The first event I went to was a Rachel Allan Collection preview party at the Palihouse. If you guys have never heard of her, she makes couture dresses that can be worn to events like prom, parties, and formal events. I love these type of dresses and I actually own quite a few of these types of beaded, intricate gowns and dresses! Last night I wore one of the Rachel Allan pieces in red and I got a lot of compliments! I normally don’t wear red, and it’s a little bit out of my comfort zone because I am a neutral color kinda girl! But I loved wearing this bright number and it caught a lot of attention!
Ivory and Rhino Horn are illegal animal products and are created by poaching our precious elephants! There has been an estimated 35,000 elephants poached in 2014, and their horns are turned into little trinkets. Rhinos are also in demand for their horns, and about 1,215 rhinos were poached in 2014. After reading up on this on The Elephant Pants site, I immediately felt that there is a need to spread awareness on this issue! It is crazy to think that some of the jewelry we see made of ivory were made from killing these beautiful and enormous elephants. Many products that condone animal-cruelty have been banned from being sold here in West Hollywood, and we are pretty in touch with animal rights. Although I am an L.A. native born and raised and I do not have that much of interaction with Wildlife, I do have a huge connection to animals, and if I can help these innocent animals from being killed for products, I would love to in any way!
I wanted to introduce you guys to a new part of my blog – called #GLAMLIFECHARITY! On this tab, I will focus on all the fabulous fashion finds that have a great cause! I want to raise awareness to those fashion lines especially because they are giving back to the community while also spreading fashion! I love this concept and I want to create my own as well! For now I will feature the brands that I find, and soon I will develop my own! So excited to share with you guys these amazing brands! If you guys know of any that are great, leave comments below! love you guys!
