It’s great that you can get UV protection while looking fabulous darling! My eyes have become increasing sensitive to the sun so it helps that they are not only cute but also protect your eyes. I can’t wait to rock these all summer long. They have so many cute ones to choose from!

Dancing All Night with Aerosoles #OnHerFeet Challenge

Aerosoles challenged me to dance all night in my shoes and guess what?! I took them up on it! The older I get, the lower my tolerance for heels gets. I do so much in a day the last thing I want to worry about is my feet hurting. So I was a little hesitant to wear heels all night to dance which is something I haven’t done since college! After a full night of bopping around West Hollywood with my girlies dancing and having so much fun, I realized I hadn’t thought about my feet once! I mean how many times have you gone out in heels dancing and didn’t even think twice about your feet? It was pretty amazing. My feet felt great at the end of the night and I didn’t even have to change into my flip flops that I keep in the car when I’ve had a long night! I urge everyone to try the #OnHerFeet Challenge and try on a pair of Aerosoles. I didn’t know a whole lot about the brand before this partnership but they now have a new fan!

Check out the video of my challenge and the full write on on the Aerosoles site. Seriously the best night ever! Also they used my original music in the background!! You can download it on Soundcloud if you like it!

MAZDA CX-3 Grand Touring

DSC05161 DSC05168I recently went on a trip to Palm Springs and had the pleasure of driving the 2017 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring SUV. I actually don’t know much about Mazda cars but I was honestly pleasantly surprised. I drive a luxury car and had myself wondering why after this trip lol. This car had everything my car had and more!

I loved the sleekness of the design and interior and the ride was so smooth. It had a cool little display on top of the dashboard that allowed me to see the mph and other information without looking down from the road. I loved that it has bluetooth so I could set my phone up to it and also listen to music from my phone. And the sound system is Bose so it was pretty amazing!

Overall it was the perfect car for the trip. More than enough room, easy to drive, and got us to and from Palm Springs in comfort!

24 Hours In Las Vegas

I realized I’ve been to Vegas more for work then for play. Which I’m ok with ’cause partying in Vegas is not really my thing. I have one solid day in me, then I’m on my old lady vibes. This time I went to Vegas to help my friend David who is a balloon artist. David and I went to grad school together and looking back I don’t think we thought either of us would be doing what we’re doing but here we are lol. I love helping him with his projects and he ended up getting an awesome gig in Vegas building a booth for the Surkus app at the Nightclub and Bar Tradeshow.

We only had a little bit of time to explore but we made the best of it. Before we went to build the installation, we woke up early to try a popular spot called SkinnyFats located off the strip. I’m not sure how David learned of it but I’m so happy he did. The menu is comprised of two sides: basically the “skinny” side and the “fat” side. One side is more health conscious and the other is more delicious conscious. Both sides look delicious though. I chose the healthy side and got tofu scrambled eggs (blame it on my vegan sister and vegetarian parents). It was really good and I also got a fresh juice, “liquid defense” which has orange, carrot, apple, lemon, lime and basil and I felt like it gave me energy for the day.

After breakfast, we spent most of the day building the balloon installation. I mean I have no idea what I’m doing with balloons but I just follow David and pretend I’m an expert. I think I’m a good helper cause this is the 2nd one I’ve helped with and we have a third one coming up in Chicago really soon! (pats self on the back)

When we were done building the installation (success) we decided to head to dinner before our flight home. We literally spent 24 hours in Vegas. We picked the worst time to go to dinner (5pm during a tradeshow) so everywhere was packed. The Venetian is my favorite place to eat in Vegas, there are so many restaurants in one strip many owned by famous chefs.

We opted for a spot called Public house and I got the tuna tar tar, endive salad, and brussel sprouts ( I know I know so healthy! lol). A lot of times I like to eat healthy when traveling because all the running around and pressure from the plane messes with my stomach so I like to keep it light a breezy. The food was delicious and before we knew it, it was time to board our flight!

Quickest Vegas Trip ever. Next stop, Chicago!

Brunch at Manuela

JH2A2495 I met up with my girlies a few weekends ago to enjoy a brunch at a DTLA restaurant called Manuela. There is a little area in the Arts District that they have been developing and since Melissa and I often shoot there, we saw the start of it and had no idea what they were building. Turned out to be a little plaza with shops, an art gallery and this little gem Manuela.JH2A2511DSC03162 JH2A2514 I wanted to try Manuela since passing it nearly every time we shoot, just the ambiance alone looked really cool. If you know me then you know food is the way to my heart which is funny because before 22 I was the pickiest eater. I only liked junked food and only really ate because I had too. (Prob why I was so skinny! lol) JH2A2582 JH2A2603 JH2A2604 JH2A2605JH2A2540

We ordered the Chilaquiles, Butter Lettuce, Grilled Avocado, And Cinnamon Churros to share and they were so good. Especially the churros (I told you I like junk food!) Of course I had to get some Matcha! Between the vibe and the food, I loved this place. Definitely somewhere I would meet my girls for brunch again and again. DSC03155
