I got tagged in an Instagram post today and opened up the notification to find this beautiful masterpiece! I feel like it looks exactly like Sara and I! The artist, Frida, did a really good job of capturing our features. Thank you so much @artbyFrida for the beautiful drawing! I want to frame it in my room haha. Sara has it as her phone background and I’m bummed I didn’t beat her to it! There’s no way we would be able to have the same phone background when we live together, eat together, do everything together haha. Shit would get confusing!
As I said yesterday we had our meeting with the modeling agency this morning! I think it went well, but it was so quick. I think it was a total of ten minutes long… but hopefully I made a lasting impression in those ten minutes haha. We’ll see
Oh and PS I keep getting tons of questions about my YouTube channel status and I just want to give you guys an update on that. I tried a few times creating videos and I wasn’t happy with the result because of the filming/camera, and it just didn’t feel right. I need to buy a good camera for vlogs. Do you guys have any recommendations? I’m trying to figure out what other bloggers are using for their vlogs. What about a Sony? I would really appreciate any tips!
But remember a super fun video from our Santa Barbara trip is on its way, and it will be posted to my YouTube channel
Look at that feast though!! We did it right for dinner tonight… we tried a place we haven’t been before called Cerveteca. We really liked it! I had the “spicy hangover soup” and Austin had the char grilled sea bass. We also ordered shishito peppers and brussel sprouts on the side. And mountains of chips and guacamole because we felt like reeeeaaally treating ourselves. There were a ton of other things on the menu that I wanted to try, so I have to go back
Tomorrow’s a really exciting day for me (and Sara) because we’re meeting with a modeling agency to discuss the possibility of signing with them. Tomorrow’s kind of like an introduction meeting, but I’m still so nervous haha. I know I will just be myself but sometimes those kinds of meetings can be intimidating. I’m planning on wearing something super simple like jeans and boots and having my hair curled like normal and natural looking makeup. Trying to go for the model look here! I will let you guys know how it goes.
Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend, and that you’re ready for a great week ahead of you!
Sara and I were brunching with a couple of our girlfriends at Rose in Venice Beach and guess who taps me on the shoulder?! My pretty cousin Niki! She was at a birthday lunch with her friends a few tables over. It was so nice to see her
Do you guys like my new top?! I’m dying over this white flowy design with the thin straps. It’s from a brand called Winona!
These photos are so special to me! It has always been my dream to ride horses on a beach and we did just that, and in the sunny hills in Santa Barbara and I couldn’t have been happier. Yes I planned the outfit… I know it’s not your normal horseback riding attire but I knew it would look great in photos! My beautiful white horse was named Gringo, very fitting. He was quite the character though. Eating everything in sight and shitting 24/7 haha. If I could tell you the amount of times I was posing for a photo trying to be cute and Gringo was shooting out poop at the same time… haha
We also went on a hike at Lizards Mouth trail (highly recommended) and we went paddle boarding at the Santa Barbara harbor. We actually managed to squeeze in a lot of fun activities in just two days! The video of our vacation is almost done and I can’t wait to show you guys
So remember back in November when we went to Joshua tree to shoot some photos? Wellll today is the day I got all of the photos believe it or not. Only took 5 months haha.. whatever!
Here’s a sneak peek of our desert shoot with Chimi Eyewear! We went for the retro vibe as you can probably tell. More photos coming!
I already feel so much better about my room after doing a serious closet clean out today. I was getting serious anxiety looking at the clothes pile up on my bench (we all have that one chair that is SO not meant for sitting haha) because I’ve ran out of hangers and space in my closet for my clothes. So today I thought enough is enough, I’m going to get rid of the things I don’t wear and actually be strict about it. How many times have we cleaned out our closets and looked at that one top and thought, “oh well maybe I could wear this to a brunch or something” …… 4 years later all it did was stay in the closet and collect dust haha. I got rid of a huge pile of clothes, most either gently worn or still with the tags on. I’m thinking of creating a Poshmark account so I can sell my clothes for cheap? Have you guys used an app like that before? I’ve heard about Poshmark but are there any other apps that I should check out before I sign up? I would love to hear any tips you guys have!
Sooo I’m leaving LA and I’m gunna go live on a farm and raise chickens for the next ten years. I’m having serious chicken fever after visiting Anna’s new house, that came with 14 beautiful chickens!! Anna is my mom’s assistant who’s basically part of the family, and we’re all so excited about her moving into her new home with her husband Clinton. Seriously though, 14 freakin chickens roaming around freely in the backyard haha. The best part is that they’re so well behaved and they just mosy on around the backyard until it starts to get dark and then they all huddle back into the chicken coop all on their own. Like can you get cuter than that?!!!
I was so excited when Anna said I could adopt a chicken. I chose this bronzed beauty that you see in the photos above and called her Cosmo. She’s such a diva and I love it. Runs around the backyard like she owns the place. My mom adopted Sideburn and Sara adopted Little Wing. The chicken life is so much fun haha. Now we’ll never have to buy eggs from the grocery store ever again… Anna gets about 10-12 eggs every single day, so she promised to always bring some over for us. And they are so so delicious! Good eggs come from happy chickens!
What do you guys think of Cosmo?! Isn’t she just the cutest thing?!

Took some time in Santa Barbara to make sure I got some photos in this beautiful one piece bikini! I fell in love with these flowers that were on the patio of my room at the Kimpton Goodland hotel that we stayed at. They smelled so good and gave such a nice color outside the window to look out to I was so obsessed with them so I asked my instagram followers if anyone knew what they were called so I could have them in my future backyard, and I guess they’re called the trumpet flower, or angels trumpet flower!
Once I get all of the photos from the photographer I will put together a couple posts about our stay there! The hotel was so accommodating and everything was very thought-out and cutely (is that a word haha) decorated to fit an “old California” vibe.
Today was my first day back filming Svenska Hollywood Fruar season 11! Feels good to be back. Sometimes the first day can be a little rusty but I don’t think that was the case this time. Now we’re watching Dancing With The Stars by the fire Talk tomorrow!
I finally can say I’ve been to a Laker game! Or just an NBA game in general 😉
The Lakers played the Cleveland Cavaliers, which is one of the best teams in the league right now so it was cool to see them play. Being Austin’s girlfriend for two years made it easy to know every player on the court haha. I felt so involved.. what a feeling. They were playing so great but the Lakers ended up losing at the last few minutes of the game.
I’m going back to OC tomorrow because we’re filming season 11 of Svenska Hollywood Fruar! Can you believe we’re already on season 11? Where did the time go!
Look how festive Austin’s family made the party for him.. so darn cute haha. We ate traditional Irish corned beef since it was St. Patrick’s Day (and luckily also Austins favorite meal) and a homemade oatmeal cake. So delicious! After dinner we sang karaoke (which I did not partake in, no way haha) and then we went to Bungalow to meet some friends
