olivia

’twas such a pleasure meeting olivia wilde. girlcrushing charmed [as if i wasn’t already] at nylon magazine’s event celebrating olivia on their cover. one of the parting gifts was a cute cereal box of olivia & a t-shirt with their latest cover printed on it. superb.

meadowland, the directorial debut of cinematographer reed morano, stars olivia wilde and luke wilson: “in the hazy aftermath of an unimaginable loss, married couple sarah and phil come unhinged, recklessly ignoring the repercussions.” chills ran down my spine + tears ruined my [waterproof] mascara throughout the film = proof of a job well done by all of the brilliant cast & crew.

but what a powerful and captivating performance by olivia. moreover, it was during the q&a after the film screening where she continued to shine even more as an awesome, inspirational human being while she shared her stories with reed & the journey to get this film made, as well as the positive & bullsh*t negative experiences in the industry overall. empowering. cheers, ladies! i’m inspired and working on a new song now.

gold

i ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger…but she’s drippin’ in gold in san francisco during the gold rush.

my recent trip to san francisco proved to be quite festive, with the main excitement being the infamous gold party thrown annually for the past 5 years, with each year outdoing its previous one. this was the perfect event to rock out in fabulous headpieces & neck gear — designed, personalized & hand-crafted by yours truly specifically for this grand evening.

behind the scenes, before the party, is the party at the hotel lobby…which usually means slr’s and selfies. “make yourselves at home,” the perfectly fit & well-proportioned height x weight x everything adorable bell boy said as he greeted us. oh we did, thank you.
