CREATIVE SHOOT

Beauty

As a model, there is a type of photoshoot you do every once and a while called a “creative” or a “test.” Basically what this means is just a photoshoot that isn’t for a brand, where the makeup artist, photographer, and model all hopefully use the photos to build their portfolio. Wanted to share some fresh creative shots from a shoot I did the other day in LA!

It’s funny because when I first started modeling (wayyyy back in the day when I was 15) I HATED when makeup artists didn’t use mascara on me. Always thought my eyes looked so weird without black eyelashes. Now I feel the complete opposite! I finally love the way I look without mascara, and am happy to shoot with none at all πŸ™‚

Maybe that comes along with the fact that I am getting older or I’ve just given up and accepted myself as-is. πŸ˜‚

Anywho, no vlog in today’s post! Just wanted to share some fun new shots with you. And on that note… need to go edit my next video!

Talk soon xx.

COLORADO CAMPING TRIP

Travel

It has been FOREVER since I last went camping, and I broke my camper dry spell in the best way possible.

My friend Tracy and I drove from Los Angeles to Colorado to go on an epic camping adventure. The first night we slept in Grand Junction.Β And by “slept in Grand Junction” I mean slept in our car on some BLM land. BLM land is basically land where you can legally camp for free. Watch the vlog above to find out more about how that all went down.

For the next part of our camping adventure, Tracy and I camped in a free camping area near Bryce Canyon National Park. This was one of the most gorgeous places I’d ever seen and really wish we had more time to spend there!

How are those rocks real?! Bryce Canyon was totally wild.

More big rocks.

Big rocks with some flowers lol. Thank you Tracy for sending me these photos!

Hope you enjoyed today’s vlogs!

TOP 5 BEACHES IN BALI

Travel

Top 5 beaches in Bali!!! After spending 2.5 months solo-traveling through Bali, it is about time I share my top experiences. Starting with the most important, BEACHES.

Bali isn’t exactly famous for white sand beaches like Thailand or the Philippines is. But that doesn’t mean it lacks INCREDIBLE beaches of its own.

Today’s Bali travel vlog shares why I think Nunggalan Beach, Sundays Beach Club, Green Bowl Beach, Gunung Payung Beach, and Padang Padang Beach are the best beaches to visit in Bali.

Really hope you enjoy this video, I have more “best of Bali” vlogs coming soon!

HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERY MOVIE NIGHT!

Lifestyle

Thissss was definitely a first! Troy and I have been trying to do fun new things in LA to enjoy the end of summer here. We found out that the Hollywood forever Cemetery hosts weekly movie nights throughout the summer. Watch today’s vlog to find out what it was like!

On another note, I’ve just finished up editing my LAST photo from Bali!! *quietly cries*

I don’t know what it is about Bali but the light there is just amazing and makes shooting photos soooooo much easier! Very sad to have finished editing all of them.

Since I spent over 2.5 months in Bali this year I decided to make a few recommendation videos on very specific things you need to do if you are ever visiting Bali. Those will come out over the next week or so! So stay tuned πŸ™‚

Thanks for watching!

VLOG UPDATE

Travel

Hi. It’s been a minute on this thing. Figured I would do a bit of an update post for the ol’ bloggity blog!

I’ve got to admit, when I have a lot on my plate and am still publishing 3 ish vlogs a week this blog is the first thing that goes. And for the last few weeks, there has been a lot going on! Hence the embarrassing backup of videos I haven’t shared here.

So here they are listed from newest to oldest, if you haven’t been keeping up on YouTube.

Sorry for the radio-silence, going to get my sh*t together and post regularly here again πŸ™‚

love you!!

NUSA LEMBONGAN AND NUSA CENINGAN TRAVEL GUIDE

Travel

What an incredible day! This was my first day exploring Nusa Lembongan, Indonesia and I was pleasantly surprised. Originally, I had booked a few days on Nusa Lembongan to chill out and edit. No exploring planned.

My friend and I decided we might as well see what Nusa Lembongan had to offer and ended up having an incredible day!

First stop was a restaurant called Nano Nano that had a beautiful mangrove right in front of it! The plan was to have lunch, do a mangrove tour, and finish with some snorkeling. That didn’t exactly happen when we arrived and saw the tide was out and there was no water in the mangrove! hahaha rookie mistake. Oops. So make sure you check the tides on Nusa Lembongan if you plan on visiting the mangroves. The mangrove tour did look pretty epic if I say so myself. Next time πŸ˜‰

While having lunch we made a new friend who told us about a secret cliff jumping spot on the adjacent island called Nusa Ceningan! Naturally, we had to check it out. The cliff jumping area featured in my vlog is called Blue Lagoon. I had planned on jumping but once we got there and saw the tides there was no way in hell I was getting in that water haha. If you are planning on going cliff jumping at Blue Lagoon, it’s best at low tide AND you must be a VERY strong swimmer. Our friend who jumped almost didn’t make it out of the water. Scary stuff.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how incredible Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan were. The islands were a great escape to the high-season Bali crowds.

Hope you enjoyed today’s travel vlog and learned what to do when visiting Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan!

THE VICEROY, BALI

Travel

Welcome to The Viceroy in Ubud, Bali!

For this Ubud travel vlog series I’ve partnered up with The Viceroy Bali to share their boutique luxury hotel nestled in a jungle paradise.

I’ve been to Ubud a few times before, but this was my first visit where I ever felt like I was getting the true “Ubud” experience.

The moment we stepped into our suite, my jaw hit the floor. Our room was incredible! It was decked out with a private pool, gazebo, living room, and massive California king size bed. Watch the first Viceroy vlog linked above to see what I mean.

We spent our entire first day just hanging out in our private villa/suite enjoying the jungle views and lots of room service. The Viceroy Bali made a damn good Nasi Goreng, but you couldn’t really go wrong with anything on their room service menu. Highly highly recommend.

I can truly say this was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had, and the Viceroy Bali is absolutely stunning. If you are looking for a luxury Ubud experience, this is the place to be. Also major honeymoon vibes!

Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the Viceroy Ubud, and see you soon.
