Coachella Pro-Tips

May 2, 2016

By now, I’d venture to say I am a bit of a Coachella veteran. For those of you who don’t know what Coachella is, the Coachella Music + Arts Festival is a giant festival in Indio, California each year in April. It’s held at the Empire Polo Grounds and some of the world’s most iconic entertainers and bands have taken the stage(s) to entertain hundreds of thousands of people. The festival has evolved to something so much more than a 3-day music festival – there are exclusive pool parties, surprise guest performances at the festival, art installations, a neon carnival and tons of celeb sightings.

I figured this would be the perfect time to share some of my Coachella wisdom with you if you haven’t been or if even if you have, just shut it and listen. Cool?  Continue Reading…


Eight Field of Freedom x FollowMario

March 12, 2016

Hi guys! I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a collab, but I’ve been taking some time off to blogging to focus on writing my book on social media. Coming out April 2016! I came across this brand called “Eight Field of Freedom” and totally saw myself in their clothes. They are simple, yet rugged. It’s interesting, I am really starting to find my style and I think it’s best defined as rugged classics. Eight Field of Freedom is exactly that. The quality and look is amazing but with simple designs. Check them out: (see more photos after the jump) Continue Reading…

February 7, 2016

Okay, anyone who visits my Instagram knows I like to take a selfie or two… well, I was at home watching the Kardashians one day (isn’t that like everyday?) and I saw they had this magical phone case that lights up when they were Facetiming or taking photos. It was that second, I knew I had to get one and share with you guys. It’s called a Lumee Case and it’s changed my selfie game forever. Don’t believe me? See for yourself Continue Reading…

Scenthouse LA

November 22, 2015

I have always enjoyed distinct scents. I love that we as humans have the ability to ties those scents to memories. With the overpopulation and overtly hyped candle assortment, I unfortunately am finding it really hard to discover new scents. I often mix my colognes as to create a distinct scent for myself, so I want the same for my home.

Scenthouse LA [] is a new scent house that focuses on that distinction. Continue Reading…

Miami Sunrises x VanWolff

August 27, 2015

One of my favorite things about Miami was the morning sunrise. My boyfriend and I woke up early every morning and it was nice to go for a little morning jog. The view was spectacular – cotton candy sky and the reflection on the calm ocean and pool of the hotel. I’ll never forget that view…  Continue Reading…
