Sitting in the business lounge at LAX and our flight to Sweden is delayed two hours…. but I’m secretly smiling inside because I have so much work to catch up on since Mexico, so I’ll take these two free work hours for sure!
Last night we went to the launch dinner of River Island to celebrate their fall collection! There were a bunch of LA influencers, all dressed up in RI, who got together to enjoy a wonderful dinner at Verlaine in West Hollywood. I wore some polka-dotted ruffled culotte pants with an asymmetrical strapless bow tie top!
Now I’m about to sip some red wine (in preparation for the flight) and catch up on some more emails! Lots of love to you all <3
PS we have very big news that we will be announcing over the next couple of days! Please stay tuned <3
New hair who dis?!
But for real, today was a big day. I tried a new hair colorist for the first time in about 6 or 7 years. This was a big break through for me, given all of the hair trauma I went through growing up. I have my mom to thank for my orange, purple, and red hair in high school, followed by bad hair colonists one after the next. Once I found Vanessa (who's been doing my hair for 6 years or so) I thought I would never leave her chair. But I needed to color my hair in between my Mexico and Sweden trips, and I didn't have time to go all the way back to OC.
So I asked my peeps on Instagram who they recommended for blonde highlights in LA, and I found Spencer Henry, who was nice enough to take me in last minute before I leave for Sweden tomorrow! He brightened up my blonde and lifted it near the roots. I'm so happy with what he did!!! I'll definitely be going back to him
What do you guys think?
This moment was one of the highlights of my trip! Just laughing uncontrollably with Ashli, while the sun set over the water on this beautiful beach outside the hotel. Moments like these are priceless and I will remember it forever.
We are home now, but just for a short time until we take off for Sweden on Wednesday! I'll be going to Stockholm and Helsingborg for some events and to shoot a fun campaign with my mom and Sara
Life is good!
Because this place doesn't need a filter! Nope.
We have been LIVING it up here in Mexico. This is definitely the most beautiful area in Mexico that I've been to. Next place on the list is Tulum, which is only about an hour from here. We went to a beach party in Tulum last night but it was night time so we didn't get to witness Tulum in all of its glory!
We chilled by the pool, got massages, and hung out at the beach all day… a perfect vacation day in my eyes! I accidentally went on Instagram Live when I was at the beach so that was fun. I had the full on double chin looking down at my phone before I realized what was happening haha.
We're doing an early night because we have a 5am wake up call in the morning to catch our flight at 8. Why so early!? Goodnight guys
We have arrived in beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico, at an unbelievably gorgeous hotel, which will be our home for the next few days. So far the trip has been so smooth, thanks to all of the wonderful staff and impeccable service. This place knows how to take care of their guests!
We have a nice big room overlooking the pool and the ocean, with a hot tub on the balcony (that I definitely need to try out). The entire hotel is all inclusive, and not like nasty food that the cruise ships have, their food is sooo good. They have a handful of different restaurants at the hotel and the menus are set up as a normal restaurant… (no buffet style here). The breakfast is a huge buffet complete with a Bloody Mary and mimosa station (that's my jam) and full omelette bar. It's safe to say I'll be enjoying my days here!
Now we're on our way to zip line through the jungle and visit some cenotes… talk later!

Tomorrow we leave for Mexico with Daniel Wellington! We're staying at a beautiful resort in Riviera Maya over the weekend, and we have some fun excursions planned. Unfortunately Austin isn't able to come with me because of law school, but I'm bringing his sister instead and we always have so much fun together
This will be my fourth time in Mexico, but to a completely different part of the country. We'll be going to the cenotes, zip lining over the canopies, massages, and enjoying the beautiful hotel. Stay tuned for tons of pictures!

Last week it was 100 degrees here in LA. Now it’s cloudy and overcast, and it finally feels like Fall. It makes me excited to start wearing my jackets, sweaters, tights, and tall boots!
Last week I did a photoshoot with Elison Rd, and (I mean you can see in the pictures) it was like a Fall explosion!! The location was a rented out AirBnb in DTLA, and the decoration was so on point. They had a library wall (with the ladder of course), cozy string lights, big windows, and even a swing right in the middle of the living room.
It gave me some ideas about my home decor. I think the second we “made our apartment ours” with our own decorations and design, that’s when I become a home decor addict. I’m always trying to find new ways I can rearrange the room, and that was totally not the case at our old apartment. Our old apartment was just a collection of my mom’s hand-me-down furniture (which we were so thankful for) but for our new place we got a little fresh start. Now I’m constantly coming up with ideas about how I can improve.
When I was helping Nicho move into his new apartment yesterday I realized how much shit I’m collecting in my room. Nicho had just the bare essentials.. and it felt so fresh and clean. I think my room needs a good deep clean, to get rid of the stuff I don’t use and don’t wear! Are you guys good at keeping your clutter pretty minimal?
So my joker outfit didn't end up working out, so I became a Chinese takeout box instead! I did an Instagram story takeover for Pacsun, so make sure to go to their instagram before 4 pm today to watch it! I got ready and did some hair and makeup, and it was a little nerve racking because they have 1.8 million followers, and most of them had no idea who I was, by I think it turned out okay
We went to Poppy and danced the night away. I was so tired though so we ended it a little bit earlier than usual. How was your Halloweekend?!
