supermoon, supergirl {+ a giveaway}

This summer marks 4.5 years of living in Los Angeles, 4.5 years of living in the same apartment on the west side (#represent). This fact doesn’t appear astounding on its own, but what if I told you that this is the longest I have ever lived in one place of residence? What if I told […]

how to define your personal style

As an actress, I’m so often advised to specify my “type”, to brand myself, to come up with a three word description of who I am in order to sell myself. I get the intention behind that. I get the point of figuring out the impression you leave on people, the niche of programming into which your […]

dreaming of europe in my pjs

Traveling to other countries and experiencing different cultures stole my heart and opened my eyes in innumerable ways. Ever since, […]

east coast meets west coast : winter style

The other day someone made a comment about how “time just goes by” in California. Without the clear markings of the seasons, it’s easy for one month to blend into the next and the next and the next. But I think, even with the springs and summers and falls and winters, that life has a […]

east coast meets west coast : fall style

My friend Nikki and I teamed up again to share our fall styles from the east coast to the west coast. Not going to lie, I’m feeling a little envious she gets to spend this special time of year in New York City. It’s just the best, isn’t it? I fulfill just about every cliché in my […]

what i wore

So, I’ve been in a rut with my work attire – mostly out of sheer laziness. When I first joined the 8-5 workforce I was all, “Ooooh, a chance for me to wear this dress! And those shoes! I never get to wear these things when I’m at home all day!” Well, that quickly faded. […]

east coast meets west coast : summer style

My friend Nikki lives in NYC – you might have seen that I got to visit her earlier this year. We had the very best time, as we share just about every interest under the sun – from our career path (acting) to fashion, cocktail hour, photo booths, and fries. She’s also the one who encouraged me […]
