After graduating from UCSD, I moved around a lot. I stayed in San Diego for a bit where I met my now-partner, and then moved to LA to pursue modeling. Stuck around for two years, and went back and forth between my tiny room and David’s spacious condo in San Diego once we started dating. The third and final year in LA, David moved and we got our first apartment together. Fast forward to 2018… Facebook reminded me not long ago that it’s been one amazing year in good ol’ Palm Springs!
A couple weeks ago, my two lovely friends Jenn of Jubilant Dose and Yuena of Simply Yue came to visit me all the way from New York. One of the things they quickly noticed about me was that all I ever wear is maxi dresses! To be completely honest, this is an observation that I only noticed after it was pointed out to me. It wasn’t until then, did I realize that a majority of my wardrobe consists of… you guessed it, maxis!

This Sunday is National Dry Shampoo Day! Did you know that using dry shampoo has many great benefits? Not only does it save so much time, it also works wonders to keep hair looking and smelling fresh in between washes. While my mom always taught me to wash my hair everyday, I learned in recent years that over-washing can actually be detrimental. To be honest, I’ve always been a bit of a germaphobe in the sense where I wouldn’t feel comfortable getting into bed before a full shower. When I went blonde, my stylist suggested that I wash my hair...
In addition to playing dress up, I occasionally enjoy experimenting with new makeup trends and products.

Let's have a bit of bra talk today, shall we? I don't know about my girlfriends out there, but I absolutely hate wearing bras when I don't have to. This is why I typically prefer sporting loose tops and sweaters especially if I have a long day ahead.
