For my 26th birthday I decided to travel to Hawaii with Izek and Jesse. I very much needed a break because I was going mad, slaughtering myself with work. It was a last minute arrangement because we originally planned on going to Maldives, but Izek’s passport picture was inconceivable to get in a small amount of time. We tried going to Walgreens, but he was anxious and afraid of the photographer and wouldn’t sit still. We were left with no passport picture come August 20th.
We booked everything the night before we flew out. I went all out because I wanted to make sure that this vacation was one that we would never forget.
I’m sitting in the balcony of our room as I write this post, with the fresh breeze of the Pacific Ocean grazing my body and drinking my morning coffee. This week came and went so fast, but I’m just thankful to God he blessed us with this wonderful experience. We did many different activities, but we spent most of the time with each other at the beach because that’s what made Izek happy. He kept saying to everyone he passed in the hotel lobby right after, “I swam, I swam!” Just seeing him so happy made my heart melt.
We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, which is in Kapalua/Lahaina. Upon arrival they greeted us with Hawaiian beads over our heads and even upgraded our room to a suite because we had the same last name as the lady who checked us in. The resort is huge and beautiful and the lawn is immaculately manicured, with the rooms exceptionally clean. The lady who cleaned our room would also come back in the afternoon to close our curtains, undo our bed, dim the lights, and empty our trash a second time. Not to mention how friendly everyone was to us.
There’s a lot to be said about this trip, but I’ll leave it at this for part 1 of my picture diary. I hope you all enjoy the pictures and thank you for reading! XO
This past weekend we celebrated my God-daughters 4th birthday by taking her to Disneyland. This is Izek’s 3rd time and it makes me happy to know that each time we go, he’s less scared of the rides and enjoys it more. Hope you guys enjoy this little picture diary from this fun adventure!
P.S. I just uploaded a new video on my YouTube channel. Don’t forget to check it out! (My Night Time Skin Care Routine).

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you all of the pictures of my very first “official” meet and greet from this past weekend in San Fransisco! I had such and incredible time and it’s all thanks to you guys, Benefit Cosmetics, and Macy’s.
My trip started out on Friday. I arrived at the Taj Campton Place around 1 PM. As I opened the door with excitement I realized the suite had a ton of surprises in every corner. There where two large Benefit totes filled with their hottest products and snacks. One for my sister Wendy and one for me. The sink in the restroom was also set up with everything a girl can need to look and feel confident. The room also had beautiful fresh flowers, yummy macarons, a fitted SF hat for Izek and Jesse. They really thought about everything and they sure know how to make a girl feel special.
I unpacked and settled in my room because a few hours later I was going to get a tour of Macy’s and a breifing as to how everything was going to be set up for the meet and greet. After that I was treated to a $1,000 shopping spree at Macy’s with my own person shopper! It was so much fun. Having a personal shopper was great because I was able to get a new wardrobe for a more sophisticated look. I bought a few things that were very ‘Mad Men’. Polished, powerful, and strong.
The day of the meet and greet I woke up around 9 AM. I wanted to sleep as much as I can because I knew it was going to be a long full day of fun. We started out by having brunch at The Rotunda in Neiman Marcus. After that we headed to Macy’s for press and interviews. My heart beat was getting faster and faster as the time passed because I was so anxious to finally meet all of you!
I wanted to thank all of you that came to support me. I appreciate you guys waiting in line because I know it was cold. It meant everything to me to have you guys face to face and say thank you in person for the love you guys have showed me since I first began. I can’t wait till my next one! So grateful!
The last pictures are of my trip to Alcatraz island. Great tour and highly recommend it. Just make sure you purchase your tickets the day before because they are always sold out. XOXO
