I am not sure about you, but I truly believe the more you help people out whether it be by donating your time, energy, or support the more likely someone is going to give you their energy, time, and support when you really need it. I was on set last week when I heard about this project…..The Bond by Bryan Campbell, and am so excited to share.
How can I not support someone chasing their dreams, and busting their ass to make their dreams a realty. Whether it be a dollar, or five dollars (a latte), or five hundred dollars… every single penny makes a difference. Whether you are willing to support this movie or a local charity in your area… I say pay it forward. What goes around hopefully comes around! You can donate here
Brooke’s outfit was sooo.. cute today…unfortunately this picture doesn’t give homegirl much justice. Here I am rocking sweatpants, and ton’s of necklaces to glam it up as best as I can. If I wasn’t at work I would of thrown some heels. This picture was snapped right after lunch and makes me want to start wearing the all-day lipstick again. Needless to say I am all in favor of dressing up sweatpants!

My girl friend Liise is one of the designers behind WyattOrr collection. I am drooling over there Fall 2013 line. I cut and pasted some of my favorite looks from there lookbook below:
My Miami trip was a work trip not a personal trip, and I literally worked 12-14 hours a day. I must of been high on sunshine, because everything that could of went wrong… did. Our hotel was walking distance from a night club and the thumping music usually died down around 4am. There was no hot water, and I have decided taking luke warm showers suck. It was spring break, and the Ultra Music festival, which made traffic a b!tch for returns. Our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connecting flight home. Literally every restaurant f’up someone’s order. The silver lining….my tan, Emilie Maslow, and the Chicken & Waffles at Yard Birds on 16th & Lenox!
I am going to Miami for work this week…. 8 full days.(Seattle to Miami takes a whole day just to get there) I am so excited for some sunshine. This trip is going to be all work and no play… but if I come home a shade darker it will make me a happy girl. Here is a round up of what I packed, and will not be repeating any outfits.
*3 tank tops, 3 wife-beaters (Hanes are my favorite)
*3 long-sleeve tops, 3 short-sleeve t-shirts
*denim shirt, striped tee
*hooded sweatshirt, denim jacket, striped cropped sweatshirt
*grey, black,& purple jeans, 2 pairs of denim shorts
*2 belts, scarf, beanie, socks, gym clothes
*sandals, Keds, and tennis shoes (if there was room I would of packed flip-flops)
*bathing suit, nude/black bras, PJ’s, underwear, makeup, round brush
If I was playing more than working I would of packed more for nightlife and beach wear, but that is not the case on this trip!
This week I got a surprise visit from my girlfriend Yanira who I have not seen in 7 years.
It got me thinking of this poem my husband gave to me when we first started talking. Not sure if I was super emotional or if I was just really into him at the time… but this poem stuck with me.
When someone is in your life for a REASON. . . It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.
Then people come into your life for a SEASON. Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind
but friendship is clairvoyant.
Feeling so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.
