Angelenos, make sure to check out Connected Fest if you’re in LA this weekend!

It’s one of my favorite sample sales, with top brands like Dimepiece, Skingraft, AGAIN, Tavik and many more. If I wasn’t soaking up the sun in Hawaii, I’d be there in a heartbeat.

Sending my love to The Well!

I meant to post this before last week’s adventure, but pre-trip preparations got the best of me.

Alas, here’s a few photos from my visit to the Vida Kush office and tarot readings at Skingraft.

Thank you Rhianna for styling this gypsy card reader for Skingraft’s Halloween party, and thank you to Sarah for making this tarot magic happen. As always, my cards are spot on.

Akon – So Blue

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

About a month ago, I had the opportunity to photograph stills of Akon’s music video shoot “So Blue.” I found out last week, one of my photos is the cover art for his new single! (sorry, humble brag here)

“So Blue” is about a woman with everything except true happiness. She’s got beauty, style and a man, but Akon sees she’s so blue. In a sea of rap crap, where men *sing* about blunts and bitches, Akon takes music back with a heartfelt message. (hello ladies, there are men who want to make us happy) Akon proves with “So Blue” good music isn’t dead. It’s exactly why he’s been on the scene since ’04 and isn’t going anywhere.

Thank you to Robby at RSM Creative for making this happen. Loved being on set, and hope to be there again soon!

Oh Miles, you outdid yourself with these photos!

Talented doesn’t even begin to describe Miles, or the crew from our weekend in Palm Springs. Once again, humongous thank you’s to Val for makeup and Sarah for nails. This triad made me look and feel like a supermodel!
