start the year right

Can’t believe it’s 2019! What happened to 2018? I always look back and think I really should’ve done more. Sometimes you forget to appreciate and give yourself credit for the things you accomplished and only focus on what you didn’t do. Do you ever do that? I found this pretty nifty print out from designlovefest that is a good way to reflect on your successes and opportunities (find download link below). Well, let’s try to start the year on a positive note. For me, 2018 was about finding my place (physically and emotionally), and enjoying life by eating and traveling well. I think 2019 will be continuing to eat, travel and spend time with friends and family, but most importantly putting things in action and not just in motion (more on this later). Some quick goals I wrote in this post here.

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.

Thanks Lexus for the test drive!

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.


It's Time

You know every year when you're like... "Wow where has the time gone? It's almost New Years again!" Yup, it's that time of the year, where you feel like you haven't gotten anything done these past 8 months. If you don't think that, I'm very envious. For those who do feel the same way as me, it's time to get up off your ass and start hitting those 2018 goals before you make new ones!
