"Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach." -Tony Robbins

I shot these pictures when I was lounging around on the porch of my cabana in Caye Caluker, Belize. The place I was staying had a pool directly in front of it which was amazing because the humidity there is outrageous. Every day I'd ride a bike to a market close by, get food and cook. It was nice to take a few days to lounge around. A couple of months back I went and bought a packet to start tie-dying clothes but still have it at the top of my closet just sitting there. I went to boohoo and got a tie dye maxi dress for this trip instead.

"I am an inventor. I am an innovator. It's fine for other people to proliferate on an idea, but I get excited by the idea-I get excited by ideas. Not by responsibility." - Kanye

The month of September was super packed for me. I was flying everywhere with no rest. I flew to Toronto and released my capsule collection with Addition Elle. I then did my meet and greet, took a red eye flight, landed in London, and went straight to an event from there. I probably didn't sleep more than 2 hours in 2 days. My schedule was completely booked, even in my downtime I was working. I got an email from a photographer asking to shoot me while I was in London. I often get emails like this but am just so drained and take so many pictures for work and for my blog that I'm usually over taking pictures. I usually get hit up by men to shoot but when I saw it was a woman that hit me up, I'm like oh..wait, let me see real quick. Not a lot of women hit me up to shoot so I was intrigued. I checked out Misha's pictures out and they were stunning so I'm like I have to work this girl in my schedule. The night before I was at a dinner and looked over at Tom, who does Evans clothing's PR and I'm like I want to shoot with this amazing girl tomorrow between a meeting and event. I don't have any clothes to shoot in. Can we go to Evans in the morning before it opens and pull clothes. He's like "let me make some phone calls." Ten minutes later he comes back in the room and is like DONE! I'll take a cab to your hotel, get you in the morning, and pull whatever you want. Morning time comes around and he texts me he's on his way and I get up to get ready and suddenly feel unbearably sick. I'm throwing up back to back and text Tom like there's no way I can leave right now. I feel too ill. You're going to have to pull whatever for me. He's like you got it. Not only does he bring me the clothes but he brings me medicine and crackers because I couldn't keep any food down. I laid back in bed and waited until I had a 9am meeting with one of the girls from Boohoo. I literally went downstairs in slides, sweatpants, no hair or make up done, wearing my glasses. I'm like I'm so sorry I had to still make this meeting happen but I'm super sick haha. After our meeting I showered, pulled myself together, and Misha showed up. We literally shot everything in an hour because I had to get ready to leave for an event. I had just gotten out the shower and we just shot whatever around my hotel room. This shoot is one of my favorites not only because I love when women team up together, not only because Misha is super amazing and has such a good eye, but because it was so intimate. I want to say thank you to Misha, you're so super talented and I can't wait to work with you again. Thank you Evans Clothing for providing everything, especially Tom, you're the best.

She's from the jungle

Real quick! I'm going to be in NY October 7th from 6-8pm at the Lord & Taylor on 5th avenue to present my capsule collection along with a meet and greet. It's so crazy to say my clothing will be sold at Lord & Taylors everywhere. The official flyer is on my instagram. I spent the past 9 days in Belize. I had such an good time. I'll be doing a round up post soon of everything I did while there but for now here are some pictures I snapped before going to dinner. The first four days of my trip I was in the middle of the jungle staying at the Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge. The entire place was unreal. The room, pool, landscape, and staff were all amazing.
