Outfit of the Day in Cancun Mexico- Floral Playsuit

Hey friends! Today I’m finally back on the blog! I want to share with you one of the first few outfits that I had the opportunity to shoot while in Cancun last week. In this particular day we drove to Playa Del Carmen for a bit of sight seeing and shopping. The weather was so incredibly hot and humid that I look tore up more than half the time I was there so I was very excited when Jesse got a few decent shots in one of my new favorite jumpsuit from Top Shop. Also, please check out the my new 20 minute vlog below with bits and pieces from the 9 days I was there. There’s more pictures and info to come soon, but I wanted to start the blog with one of my favorite looks. Enjoy and see you tomorrow! XO

Throwback Festival 2014

I can’t remember the last time that that Jesse and I had an actual date, alone. Needless to say, we were super excited for Saturday to get here. Believe it or not, I actually was a bit nervous about our date. As soon as we woke up, Jesse and I started scrambling trying to pick up around the house and make breakfast. And to make matters more intense, Jesse still needed to get a haircut (he had a baby fro).

Our plans were to have lunch and be out the door at 1:30pm, but we didn’t leave until 3pm. The festival was in San Diego too and the 405 traffic was horrible that Saturday afternoon. We made it to my mother-in-law’s house around 4pm so we had about 3 hours to be in our seats (event started at 7).

The traffic didn’t pick up one bit all the way to Orange County. Jesse then decided he was going to take a shortcut, and hopped on the 73 freeway even though we didn’t have the Fastrak. It definitely paid off because we got to SD in under 2 hours, and still had time to hit up Carl’s Jr…lol

Upon arriving at the festival, we received our green wristbands with our free drink vouchers, and headed to our seats. I wasn’t expecting such a big crowd. The DJs were awesome. They really had the place jumping. We seriously had the best seats in the house. I can’t believe Dj Quik shook my hand. He was the best artist of the night. Following Quik, was E-40, then Bone Thugs. I was really hoping Too Short would make a surprise appearance. The show was still fun, especially because I was with my man spending some much needed quality time.

I hope you guys enjoyed this BP. See you guys later!

Good Morning America and Beauty Con 2014 #NYC

This past trip to NYC was amazing! It was a long trip, but well worth it nonetheless. I was pretty busy running around the city from meeting to meeting and in between that time, I made an appearance on Good Morning America. Live television, guys!! Watch me below and let me know what you think. I believe i conquered that fear :)

I was pretty nervous as you can imagine and had terrible anxiety leading up to the event. What I told myself was that if God didn’t think I could do it, then he wouldn’t have blessed me with the opportunity. I also have more confidence in myself since reading The Confidence Code and really understanding what fear is and what it can do to a person. Trust me, I know exactly what fear can do and I can tell you that fear is not real! I just focus on being me and if people don’t like that, well who cares! Just being honest here. I’ve spent too much time and energy trying to please people who at the end still don’t understand or like me. So why bother. I love being me and that’s all that matters. That attitude has helped me so much in my life in these past few months. I’ve seen major transformations.

Anyway, below is the picture diary of my adventure in the city, enjoy!

(Thank you to everyone who came out to my meet and greet! I hate that they’re always so rushed. I wish I had more time to talk and get to know each other. Love you all so much! I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for your support. So grateful for all of you!)

Hawaii Sunset Inspired Nail Art Tutorial + Outfit Idea

Today I wanted to share a fun nail tutorial inspired by my birthday vacation to Hawaii from last year. The sunsets are one of the most beautiful sights to see because there’s not one that compares to the day before. We loved spending the afternoon by the beach, feeling the warm breeze, hearing and seeing the waves wash upon the shore, and seeing the gorgeous array of colors change and become more intestine as the sun disappeared into the horizon.

Death Valley 2014

My family trip to Death Valley was a spur of the moment decision made with the intension to get away from it all. Not that we NEEDED to get away from it all. We’re quite happy and stress free actually, but we just wanted to spend sometime away from social media (which didn’t really work, LOL). We were going to travel to Sedona Arizona, but the trip was a few hours too long and since we had just planned it, we opted for Death Valley instead.
The trip from Los Angeles to the National Park was about 5 hours. We rented a Jeep from Rent-A-Car, packed our suitcases, snacks and headed out the door ready to embark on a new adventure. The ride up the highway was mesmerizing because we were witnessing nature in a way we’ve never seen it before. The mountains and valleys were a beautiful sight to see which left us in awe. We made a few quick stops along the way to stretch our legs, use the restrooms and buy some of the best home made beef jerky I’ve had in a long time.
We finally arrived at Death Valley around 7PM and checked in at the Furnace Creek Ranch. I highly recommended it by the way. It’s a beautiful little town with so much history and it makes you feel like you’ve traveled back in time. There’s a pool, golf course, playground, restaurants, saloon, gift shops/general store, and a museum. It’s also close to a lot of great locations to check out while you’re there. We ate at the 49ers Café every single day and night because the food was great and the service was amazing.
I have so many great things to say about Death Valley! I also want to give you guys a list of the places we visited and that we think are a must to check out while you’re there.

Scotty’s Castle a.k.a Death Valley Ranch.
This place offered a 1 hour tour of the castle which we really liked. It covered a lot of history and I also found a lot of inspiration on all the prints of the fabrics and the actual structure of the building. It sparked a lot of creativity for future projects. The drive up to castle was pretty far, but we went anyway. While we were in area we decided to visit a ghost town. I’m a complete sucker for anything scary. Only during the day though, lol. So we drove down to the Ghost town of Rhyolite. The ruins of the town are quite eerie because you can just visualize how life was lived there over 100 years ago.
We then went to a small town in Nevada called Beatty to grab a bite to eat. Nothing much to see or do there though but a candy factory.
Anyway, enjoy my picture diary from the great Death Valley and hopefully it inspires you to visit this great national park.
Must see places:
- Sand Dunes at Mesquite Flats
- Badwater Basin: The lowest point of elevation in North America (282 Feet!)
- Zabriske Point
- Dante’s View.
- Mosaic Canyon
- Artist’s Palette:
This was one of my favorite places to visit because you can see a beautiful array of colors from the minerals that lie within the mountains. I bought a lot of crystals while I was there and I can’t wait to start doing my research on each and every single one of the. Also, if you find a minerals or gold and you take it home you can go to jail! Just FYI. Sucks right?
