"As a society, we're so focused on instantaneous gratification that our short term solutions often become long-term problems." -Tony Robbins

I've come to the conclusion that I like most of my pictures now shot in parking lots. I guess because I'm always going somewhere and there's always good lighting. Either way I wore these super comfy stretch skinny jeans from ASOS that feel more like jeggings but they're not because they have pockets. This top I'm pretty sure this is suppose to be a bodysuit but I was on the way to the beach here and just took off my jeans and used it as a swimsuit too. I love Sirene Libre NYC. She has such dope stuff.

I love me a thick cuffed heel. I found out about this clothing brand BNKR and instantly became obsessed with so many of their pieces. They're structured and clean cut. I'm into wearing warm neutral colors more now that my hair is lighter.

My most asked question is "what is your workout routine?" I kept saying for months I was going to start doing workout posts for you guys but when I work out, I actually work out. The last thing I want to do is my hair and make up just to sweat and be gross. Soooo I've decided to do gifs instead of workout videos because reasons. Sometimes I don't have all the time in the world to workout because I travel so much now but that's probably just another excuse. I find that if I don't workout at least 3-4 times a week, I feel way less energetic and end up moping around. So I make sure to at least try and do 15-30 minutes of anything each day to keep me going. Below is a quick 15 minute workout if you're short on time.

"All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space. To a gratitude space. I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it." -Oprah

Fall came and for some reason I felt I really wanted to start taking my hair lighter. At first, I was caramel-ish color and then gave my hair some rest and took it even lighter than that. I designed my next collection for Addition Elle which comes out next June. It's for the transition from end of Summer leading in to cooler weather. I know within the next few months I'll be shooting the collection and could only imagine the looks created with lighter hair. The collection is pretty much inspired by my look below. Lots of browns, nudes, suede, mesh. I can't wait for you guys to see. This is my go to outfit honestly for right now. Anything thigh or knee high, a simple dress, with a light weight duster trench.

"Unless you choose to do great things with it, it makes no difference how much you are rewarded, or how much power you have." -Oprah Winfrey

This month I've been in Florida, NY, AND Los Angeles so my outfits have been all over the place. In December I feel like I should be wearing warm tones with a long trench but instead I find myself wearing double denim with sandal heels, and a wide pair of Miu Miu glasses I got from Sunglass Hut. I've been only purchasing things lately that are versatile for all seasons and holidays, like my Miu Mius. The second I put them on, they reminded me of Alvira from Scarface. She was my style icon back in the day. When I say back in the day, I also mean now.

"Love merges two minds together and so the first thing love does is humbles you. It reminds you you’re not in control of your own passions. It decenters the self. Egotism is desperate longing in a small space. Love realizes the center of his life is not inside himself, it’s in another person. When you're in love, it eliminates the distinction between giving and receiving. When you give to the person you love, you're giving to a piece of yourself. So it's actually more fun to give than receive." -Michel de Montaigne & David Brooks

I flew to New York for 2 weeks for some casting calls and shoots. I've been staying with my sister out here and celebrated her birthday at Benihana. It was fun. I forgot what 40 degree weather felt like. Although I slightly miss living here, I definitely don't miss this weather. I will say it has been pretty sunny. I have a week left and am excited just to wear my bomber jackets that I have in various colors.

In October I flew to New York to launch my clothing collection in Lord & Taylor's flagship store. I had so much fun meeting everyone who came out to support me. It was so awesome to actually see the clothes I designed with Addition Elle on racks with my name on them. Not to mention they had a giant billboard of me on 5th avenue. Thank you so much to Lord & Taylor and especially the visual team who made the floor set up look gorgeous. I had models do a little runway show for the people who came out. I forgot to mention Addition Elle had a runway show during New York Fashion Week that featured a few of my designs. I posted the pictures below! You guys can shop my clothing line on both Addition Elle and Lord & Taylor!
