MELLOW WEEKEND AHEAD

Hi guys 🙂

I’m off to Mammoth tomorrow morning with Rudy and I’m already dreading the car ride.  It should take about six hours or so to get up there and I’ve just been living in the car lately so it just seems like a difficult task at the moment.  I’m going to have him drive though, so it won’t be too bad.  We’re having a little romantic getaway up in the mountains for Labor Day Weekend.  We’re planning on hiking, seeing waterfalls, fishing, making dinners at the cabin, having romantic wine nights, etc.  It sounds like the perfect way to spend the weekend after two big wedding weekends!

I’ve never been up in the mountains during the summer time so it will be a new experience for me.  Rudy’s been a bunch during the summer so he can show me around and take us on fun little adventures.  His parents have a house up there that’s why he’s been so many times!  I really want to try mountain biking… have you guys done it?

A SPECIAL MOMENT… THE MORNING OF THE WEDDING!

UGH!  This weekend was so special my heart is exploding!  I had the honor of being a bridesmaid for my best friend Amanda, who’s now officially married!

I really wanted something special for us to do the morning of her wedding, so I came up with the idea to create a video of sweet messages, funny clips, and all photos of all of us!  I’m SO happy I did, because it was a very sweet moment.  In the beginning of the video, it started with different clips of us impersonating Amanda, then it switched over to our sentimental messages, then to old videos and photos from college.  She loved it!

PS how cute are our matching pajamas and slippers?!  Amanda gave each of us a little gift on the night of the rehearsal dinner, which included our wedding morning outfits and a thoughtful card 🙂

I was a little worried about showing the video RIGHT after we finished hair and makeup (imagine if we all cried our makeup off!) but we were all pretty good at catching the tears before they messed up our face haha.

I’ll be showing more and more photos from the wedding as I get them, btw!  Everything was p e r f e c t .

FROM THE VAULT

This is still one of my favorite photos, wearing the hat that I designed <3 Shop the hat HERE

Tomorrow I’m going to NAPA! Sara and I got invited on an influencer trip with Corkcicle, one of our favorite wine/lifestyle companies, to experience a special wine tour with a world renowned sommelier.  It’s a quick trip– leaving early in the morning and coming back just before sunset.

I’ve been super exhausted lately so I’m going to bed early tonight (10 pm) to catch some good night’s sleep before tomorrow’s big day.  Can’t wait to share photos!  ….and video 😉

Hola chicas!

I paired one of our classic pieces from Montazami Brand with some high waisted bell bottoms and they looked so cute together!  I love the mix of elegant and busy 🙂

Hope you all had a good day today.  I tried to get a lot of errands done because I have a full day of modeling tomorrow, then I’m off to Napa on Wednesday for a day trip.  I brought my bridesmaids dress home from the tailor and unfortunately she made the sleeve a little too tight.  It feels like my arm is taped down to my side and it’s extremely uncomfortable! I ended up taking it back so the tailor can loosen it up a little bit.  Thank goodness I took it in early enough to make this second change!

WEDDING SEASON

Dress from Lioness Official

Hi guys and Happy Monday! This weekend Rudy and I went to his friends’ wedding in San Juan Capistrano and it was such a fun time 🙂

Rudy was one of the groomsmen so we actually had to go to the wedding separately since he had to be there early for photos, rehearsal, etc.  This group of friends is from his high school days who I hadn’t met yet.  The scary part?? I did not know ONE person going into this weekend! I was thinking “OMG I’m going to have to go to this wedding alone and not know one soul until the ceremony is over?!” The lucky part is that there was a rehearsal dinner on Friday, so that’s when I got to meet everyone and make friends. I made friends with some of Rudy’s friends’ girlfriends so we all got ready and went together to the wedding on Saturday 🙂

The crazy part happened when the bridesmaids started walking down the aisle. I couldn’t believe it! They were wearing the exact same style and color dress that I’m wearing next weekend for Amanda’s wedding!!!! What are the chances?! Scroll up to the 2nd to last photo above to see what I’m talking about. Such a crazy coincidence! I guess that ruined the surprise for Rudy hehe.

SOUND BATH

Right now there are so many things going on in my life work wise, and it feels like the days just get shorter and shorter! I’m currently working on a HUGE project with Sara that I cannot wait to share with you guys. We are filming A LOT!  It’s going to be a lot of fun… just you wait 🙂

Tonight I had my first crystal sound bath experience!  Have you guys ever had a sound bath?  We laid on the floor for an hour or so with our eyes closed, listening to the teacher talking us into a meditative state while playing certain sounds using different crystal bowls.  There was a lot of noise outside the room which got really distracting at times, but there were a few times where I reached a deeper meditative state.  I want to try it again with more quiet surroundings!

RED & YELLOW

It’s crazy pants day!  I spent the day being a tourist in my own city, in the dead of summer!  A lot of Venice locals wouldn’t DARE going anywhere near the board walk in the summer with all the crazy crowds, but I secretly love it.  The only time it gets annoying is when you’re hungry AF and the lines are way longer at your favorite local Mexican spot (happened to me tonight)!

I know it looks hot, but these pants were very light so it wasn’t too bad wearing these in the middle of the day.  I love the crazy design on them.  I told you guys I was going to wear more funky pants!

I couldn’t find this exact pair on the website (I searched for 40 min haha), but find similar ones HERE!

Pink Hair

Uh oh! I dip dyed my hair pink!!!

No just kidding, it’s a temporary spray, but it was fun to have it for a couple days! I used the one from L’Oréal’s Colorista line… they have a bunch of cute colors!

LOVE

I love this guy so much 🙂 I can hear Rudy’s laugh just looking at this photo!

This was from Saturday night at this art and music party in Venice which was SO FUN. It was at this massive outdoor courtyard and they had open bar, mezcal tastings, art installations, etc.  By the end of the night it turned into a giant dance party which is always my favorite thing ever.  Everyone was so happy, which is why this photo is the perfect description of that night!

PS I’m kinda very into the outfit I wore… I love that funky Venice style and I think I’m going to wear more stuff like this from now on. Flare pants, crochet pieces, etc. What do we think?? 🙂
