Shoot day…VH1′s ‘Fabulous Life of…’

I love surprise shoots. Yesterday, I was called in to dish pop culture expertise and snark for VH1′s The Fabulous Life Of…. The special airs in December on VH1 and I’ll give you a date the minute I find out. In the meantime, I had to take a few glam selfies with my hair and makeup did. S/o to Marissa Masella for the wavy “lady in red” look.

I’m in L.A. this weekend shooting an awesome new project (Shhhushhhh… Top secret. I’ll give you details when I can) featuring tastemakers and trendsetters in music, art, food, fashion and lifestyle. Until then, here are some behind-the-scenes flicks featuring The Argyle’s Chris Hewes, DJ Franki Chan and artist Michael Hsuing.

Currently obsessed with… my Simpsons Converse sneakers

These are a few of my favorite things…. Anyone who knows me, knows that I live in Converse Chuck Taylors and that I live FOR The Simpsons. How could I resist buying these amazing Simpsons kicks? They’re so purty that I almost don’t want to wear them…Almost. S/o to Journeys for this awesome collabo.



Currently obsessed with…nail art!

I’ve been swooning over nail art forever now and I finally took the plunge this weekend. The lovely folks at Vanity Projects hooked me up with a nail art session. I picked a very alluring tiger gold and black tiger pattern, because let’s be honest, I can never say “No” to anything gold or tiger print.
