Speak Up, I wanna know if you can keep up

“If I told you I’ve worked hard to get where I’m at, I’d be lying, because I have no idea where I am right now.” - Jarod Kintz

It was a pleasure to work with Addition Elle a few weeks back for their Be a Showstopper campaign. Here are some behind the scenes photos from the actual shoot, release of the photos, the Toronto store opening, and blogger dinner.

You Can Find Beauty in Anything

“When you stop living your life based on what others think of you, real life begins. At that moment, you will finally see the door of self acceptance opened.” -Shannon Alder

It's finally here! I had the honors of flying to Canada to work with Addition Elle on this 'Be a Show Stopper campaign'. I've had numerous companies ask me to shoot in lingerie for them but have been shutting it down for the majority of my career. This time when Addition Elle approached me, I not only felt like it was the right time in my career but also loved the message they sent behind it. It was such a genius idea to glamorize three bloggers in the industry who were comfortable enough with their bodies to do a shoot in under garments because it really sends a powerful message. I felt Addition Elle accomplished what they set out to do. I personally believe bloggers are more relatable than celebrities and I feel these final shots send a message of self empowerment and self acceptance. That is something I have always tried get across to my viewers. I know a lot of you have been waiting for these so I hope you love the shots as much as I do. Thank you to the entire Addition Elle team and the great Maude Arsenault for these amazing shots. You can find beauty in anything. You don't need to be accepted by others, you need to accept yourself.

White Tiger - It's Des God, God

I've been friends with the very much talented Melo-X for a minute now and have seen his success grow rapidly. I'm thrilled to say he now has collaborated with LeMerch for his "It's des God, God" collection. I was the first ever to get this black on white beanie and it's only available for 24 hours starting March 4th at 12pm EST. Make sure you cop that. I'm off to Canada on Tuesday for the grand opening of Addition Elle in Toronto. I'm pretty sure I want to ride around in a white car with the top down, then jump out in the street while it's snowing while rapping Drake's Started From the Bottom song. Basically reenact his entire video. I'm excited about the release of my pictures with Addition Elle and can't wait for everyone to see them. I bleached pieces of my hair and made it this caramel color, pretty sure everyone can see in the pictures.
