This week, I got to ride in style in the Lexus LC500.

Yes.. It’s the car in Black Panther during that crazy car chase, and yes.. it is beautiful.

It has the smooth and luxurious handling of a Lexus, detailed hand-stitched leather interior, and the power of a panther with a 10-speed transmission. To be frank, it’s quite difficult to take advantage of the speed in LA traffic, but we were able to take it on a mini road trip and drove along the southern coast away from the fires.

Follow Your Gut

I recently did a campaign for Health Ade Kombucha, and got to try out this infamous hipster drink that you see girls in their sports bras drinking on their insta. I was skeptical at first, but I must say… I was sold after I drank the first one. I’ve always had digestion problems, and drinking even half of a bottle each day really helped my digestive system work.

Which made me more excited to shoot this campaign. I had a lot of fun building this picnic set and now have turned into one of those (but not so fit) girls on insta promoting Kombucha. Check it out if you still haven’t tried it and have problems digesting like me! #followyourgut

My favorite flavors are Blood Orange-Carrot-Ginger, Pomegranate, and Bubbly Rose.

Macau

Over Christmas, my family and I took a one day trip to Macau. We spent the day exploring old town, and rode the Ferris Wheel at the Studio City hotel. We finished the night with the Dancing Water Show (similar to Cirque Du Soleil).  

Coming from Vegas, Macau felt cleaner, more spacious and had less crazy people roaming the streets. I think most people that go to Macau are strictly there for gambling or luxury shopping so the streets and the hotels were pretty empty. If you're planning a trip there, I definitely recommend visiting old town of Taipa, and don't forget to try their famous egg tarts and pork buns!

The Hustler

Look 2 of our Alter Ego series - The Hustler. I had so much fun channeling my inner BadGalRiRi, and pretending I was in one of her music videos. I'm definitely sending these photos to that audition. It was my first time wearing a septum ring, which Gina warned me that it feels like a booger stuck on your nostrils constantly. Man... I couldn't stop fidgeting with it, and itching my nose. 

Again, big ups to this team of creatives - who pulled this look together in 15 minutes. We were very short on time but managed to get a handful of amazing looks. Look out for number 3 soon!
