Don Benjamin.

Who is that, you might ask? That’s  Don Benjamin of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20 and newly, an entrepreneur! He just started a new t-shirt line, so I went to the t-shirt release event at this really cute boutique. The t-shirts were available, there was a DJ, there was candy, a ton of fabulous clothing, and Don and fellow model Marvin took pictures with fans!

Print mixer.

 

 

 

 

What day in LA isn’t lovely? It’s always a great day to go down to the Melrose Trading Post! I’m getting to that point where my summer wardrobe is wearing thin (come quick, fall!) so I’m coming up with new ways to wear the pieces I have. I’ve always been wary of mixing prints because there is a definite way to do it, but I got out my leopard print shorts from Forever 21, my mirrored floral dress from Urban Outfittters, my fave BP. round sunnies, and my BP. studded bag and loved it:

à la carte.

It’s that time again. Time for foodie friday! I take pride in eating some really fantastic meals as often as possible and I’m one of those people that documents these moments by taking photos (I know, I know, but I’m a blogger, it’s what I do). So, I want to share my best and most recent foodie moments in photos:

  1. Little Hamburger at Five Guys – Tomato, Mayo, Ketchup is where it’s at, trust me.

2. The Counter Custom Turkey Burger with avocado, chipotle aioli, pineapple, tomato, and mixed greens paired with 50/50 Sweet Potato and Regular Fries (with Onion Rings). Perfection. Are you seeing a pattern here? I’d have to say I love burgers!

3 . Banana Nutella Crepes at a cafe.  ‘Nuff said.

I would love to hear about the fabulous meals you’ve had!

Get your NYFW.

nyfw

Fashion week has officially begun. We all wish we could head to New York City (NYC) for Fashion Week, wake up, go to shows, and do it all again, right? Thanks to the internet, we kind of can. Here’s how:

  • Check the schedule for show times on the official website to find out when the shows you want to see will be. I even made my own schedule of shows—I know, I’m a fashion nerd:

What are your fashion week plans?
