recovery

“where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.” 

– rumi

when you survive any tragic incident, there is a long road to recovery oftentimes. [that explains my hiatus of many months] now i present to you a very helpful guide for this upcoming saturday, january 21st, 10 am, commencing at independence ave sw x 3rd st sw, washington, dc:

women’s march prep [for new yorkers & all them betches]

1. external chargers & plugs

2. shots of whiskey

3. map printouts in case phone dies abruptly 

4. government id 

5. shareable sharpie (write your name, emergency contact & allergies on your arm) 

6. shots of vodka 

7. wear all your hillary/obama/women/lgbt pins that u spent good money or time to get

8. tech gloves [c’mon it’s 2017], scarves, hats 

9. comfy shoes [no heels although tempting]

10. warmspot/hotspot locations to recharge

11. shots of rum, think nomadic pirate life

12. contagious, empowering attitude

snippet of my fight song for hillary 2016. proper video of the full version soon.  let’s go win this effin’ thing. #strongertogether 

princess or queen

princess or queen? jealous or crazy? yes obsessed with beyonce’s lemonade, particularly that song. aren’t we all?

every stone has a different energy. every crystal has a different meaning. this one is for sobriety, how appropriate.


i didn’t choose it – it chose me.


this smooth & sexy amethyst from brazil has ventured many miles to find me. if only true love could do such a thing. 

sexy edgy rock n roll pheromones oozes out of this gem, no joke. thanks for helping me out with the game, ’cause i’ve got none. 


look up my rockstar friend @justinbmontoya on ig for more of his custom made jewelry featuring exquisite stones & precious metals from his exciting travels across the world. 

how i wore it:

hamptons chic ready: 

cheers to sobriety! 

april, birthmonth

thank you for bearing with me during my hiatus – i’m certain you spent that time away from me extremely wisely. 

april, the joy of being an aries! as excited as heidi klum is for her annual out-of-this-world halloween bash, i feel this same way for my birthday. it is the blood i need to survive, the sushi that keeps me breathing, the inspiration that makes me who i am. this year’s theme was sinsurella 2016, an 18th century ball where cinderella & marie antoinette’s worlds collide. 

“o, let them eat cake.”

i will be sharing the pretty pictures of the vanity fair night starting at zuma with the great people in my life [and the amazing food + excitement] with you shortly…but for now, the night ended something like this:

sleeping or texting?  

probably both. but i am not responsible for anything “weird” you may have received from me 😛 

on valentine’s day

valentine’s day…it’s just another day. if you love someone, you don’t need a specific occasion to show it. i dare you to show it all the time.

here’s my latest spontaneous creation + impromptu late night video inspired by love, valentine’s, heartaches, heartbreaks, life, and sparked by seth meyers’ quote about not shaving since thanksgiving. :D

p.s. the dark video is intentional – raw, dark & moody, just like my emotions [& how i like my men steaks]. it’s not about me, but more about the pretty sparkling tears [and superficial bling]. or excuses for not having proper lighting nor fixing it up in post. just deal with it. turn off all your lights, brighten up your screen to the max & enjoy! xx


for my past vday festivities, visit this fancy charity event in beverly hills to benefit the wounded warrior project.

blizzard 2016 

there’s snow place like home. home is where you are. wolfie enjoying his first experience with snow.  ❄️
this was what we waited 1 year for… all hail to the frozen tears of mother nature.

“…we’ll roast marshmallows by the fireplace as we whisper sweet nothings in our warm embrace.”

so of course i must re-share what i wrote for last year, inspired by people posting hilarious requests on craigslist searching for a [temporary] blizzard “boyfriend” or “girlfriend.” enjoy.

stay warm & safe out there everyone. tempted to do a remake for the snow challenge. thoughts? volunteers?

for another fun video, [this time about football] go here. 

halloween 2015

heidi klum + halloween…

THE infamous halloween bash of the year is hosted annually by supermodel heidi klum. the effort she & the team make in her costumes basically turns everyone into a basic b*tch puts everyone to shame. this year for her 16th annual party, although i arrived late [after surviving many obstacles & dramatic situations the day of] i was able to make it and witness her amazing transformation as jessica rabbit. it was held at lavo in new york, sponsored by gsn’s hellevator show & svedka vodka, filled with celebs, reality stars, models, hotties, cool kids and the usual mix of douchebags. i would have loved to harass say hi to jLo if i had known that was her in costume nearby.

what i wore: designed & handmade by yours truly. thanks.

sinsu, daenerys, game of thrones, heidi klum, halloween

daenerys + rhaegal x3

i first obsessively viewed stills of daenerys on google, drawing inspiration from her actual wardrobe on the show, fan sketches, deviant art, other obnoxious random things that would pop up, and i came up with a rough idea of my rendition of her outfit for halloween. then i browsed endless fabric stores in search for fabric & textures that spoke to me: “hail!” they would say. [no, not crazy, they really did].

inside the party:

rhaegal wants a piece of the selfie cookie.

a handful of #selfiecookies were provided at every vip table, with images of heidi klum’s past costumes for halloween. i tasted one, and it seemed like a fairly healthy light chocolate coconut cookie. cool.

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.

meadowland olivia wilde

film still from meadowland

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.

olivia wilde

oops, photobombed. #squadgoals

thanks for keepin’ it real, olivia.
