Fancy stroll on Rodeo Drive

I just got a fresh haircut from the amazing Caitlin Sennott (@caitlin.sennott) and I thought to myself, I need to get that on film. So I teamed up with @othellomarxphotography and strolled Rodeo Drive and took advantage of the beautiful scenery. And also got a matcha latte from Alfred Tea House, cause that’s the best! ๐Ÿ’š

When it gets hot in California, it’s HOTTTT! So I like wearing light and airy clothes to be able to move and be comfortable in the hot. So I have 2 of these pants, one is this baby blue and one in mint green. Both are super comfy, easily wearable with anything, can be casual or even chic with some high heels, like I did here. The pink shirt has been a part of my closet for a while, yet I find it pretty hard to wear it… but this time it worked.

I just got these naked heels that I absolutely love! They are from Zara and they are actually pretty comfy for high heels! And can be worn with literally anything!

Now let’s talk about the bandana! I found it a little challenging to do anything with my hair since it’s been this short, but with bandanas and pearl hair clips making their way into everyday fashion, I’m saved! Lol I really love this look and it worked really well with the outfit because of the pink and blue. I also have another bandana that’s more suitable for brown and green clothes, so I think I’m set for summer.

Do you like wearing hair accessories? Which ones?

I’m wearing shirt, pants, shoes and bag from Zara, watch from Walmart, bandana from H&M, necklace from &otherstories and Luna Norte, sunglasses from Gucci.

The magical poppy field

There are so many gorgeous places in California that most of the time I’m in awe of the place where I have the pleasure to live. It’s truly magical and beautiful. When I heard about the poppy blooming because of the crazy amounts of rain we had… well, for California at least, I know I had to see it. It was only an hour and a half drive from where I live and since I could spend the day with my boo, it was double worth it. โ˜บ๏ธ Here’s some proof of the beauty we witnessed at the poppy fields.

I’m wearing Zara dress, Cape Robbin shoes, H&M headband, Rayban sunglasses, Zara wooden bag.

What’s your favorite flower? Have you visited any poppy fields?

Another day, another beach

So we just recently had a heat wave in LA and believe me, it was NO fun. 47 freakin’ degrees Celsius is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy…okay, maybe my worst enemy… for those of you living in the US, it was 120 degrees Farenheit. Bananas, right?!

So what does one do on hot days like this when there’s like dozens of beaches around…? I wonder… Ok, ok, just messin’ wit ya! Obviously I needed to go to a beach and this time it was Laguna Beach. So this post is more of a travel post than a fashion post, but still I had a super cute outfit on. LOL

Laguna Beach is famous for…well, the only thing I can think of right now, which I’m a little ashamed of, is a TV show… but anyways, it’s about an hour and 20 minutes from where I live at the moment, so not too bad. It was an easy drive as it was during a weekday. The only drama on the road was, that we accidentally drove on a toll road, but we got off at the first exit and I paid the toll the next day, so all is well with the worlds. LOL A little side note, I did not know that there were any roads around LA that you have to pay for…apparently I was wrong. Well, now I know! Haha

So we went to this place called The Deck on Laguna Beach and had some amazing Guacamole, which to be honest, I kind of got addicted to. I mean avocados, not guacamole per se, but still. And also, one of my new found favourite dishes, mussels and clams…well, more the mussels, but who cares really. Seafood fanatic alert!!!

Then we walked a little bit on the actual beach, where all the sand is and the water and I swear to God, this was the first time I actually wanted to go in to the water, but didn’t bring a swimsuit with me… LAME!

After that is was gelato time! We stood in line, like good Americans (one in training) to get our 2 scoops of gelato and some waffle cones. Yum! And while we waited in line I was the cutest chocolate shop ever with something called “Cloud Nine”. How cute?!

So let’s talk a little bit about my outfit, even though it’s super easy: Everything is from Zara! The shoes, the shorts, the shirt and even the little cute bag. I’m not a huge fan of jean shorts, I don’t really know why, maybe I just haven’t found the ONE yet, but I prefer silk, linen cotton or even leather shorts, but of course not in super hot weather. Yuck!

So that’s about it! I hope you enjoyed the little story time and let me know in the comments if you want more of these kinds of posts, or more about fashion, or music or even makeup or skincare! Until next time!

Kisses,

Show me your peacock

So a couple weeks ago my friends came to LA and brought me some clothes from home, so what is a fashionista’s first thought? Let’s do a photo shoot! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

So I found this amazing photographer and we made some great shots! No, I mean GREAT shots! ๐Ÿ˜Š This is the first outfit we shot in San Pedro at the marina.

Even if it’s summertime, I try to do something fun or interesting in the outfit. This time I went with a colorful peacock bomber jacket and the amazing ‘delka’ fanny pack made by my Hungarian designer friend. I know it might be a debate if it’s cool or lame, but I think it’s all in how you wear it and I definitely wear it with pride and joy! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

The other main accessory were obviously the Dior sunglasses which, for a light eyed person, are life! I cannot go out without sunglasses on. It’s not even a joke! So here are the first batch of photos from San Pedro.

I’m wearing a Free People shirt, Zara bomber jacket, Gas jeans, Zara belt, delka fanny pack, Swarovski ring, Dior sunglasses.

What are your thoughts on fanny packs?

Downtown jungle

I know it’s been a while, but bare with me. I have been working like crazy over these past few months and trying to book gigs. But I managed to find the time to team up with a great photographer. We wondered around in downtown LA for a couple of hours and found some really cool and unusual places. I rocked my pantsuit and my brand new Vivienne Westwood sneakers. Yay! Check this out!

I’m wearing pantsuit from H&M, T-shirt from Zara, Vivienne Westwood sneakers, RayBan sunglasses.

Do you like to go on a playground even as adults? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™ˆ

Art district in downtown LA

One of my favorite things about LA is that wherever you go, you can find interesting, artistic and creative places to shoot some photos. This is exactly what happened this time. We didn’t play it be ear, we deliberately went to the Art district in downtown LA to find the coolest spots.

The outfit was based on the cool denim jacket with the furry collar and the rest just fell into place. Even though it’s winter, you can get by with a leather skirt and some fur on top.

I’m wearing a jacket and skirt from Zara, shirt from Stradivarius and Gucci sunglasses.

Long Beach story

Another amazing shoot at the beach, but this time at Long Beach. I met up with the photographer by the beach and we clicked right away. I didn’t really have a full concept, I just wanted to capture the way I was feeling, which was great! I felt good in my skin, I felt comfortable and sexy. I know it seems weird to say this out or write it down, but I think that feeling like this about oneself is unfortunately not a very common thing…it should be though!

Anyways, it was one of the last nice days at the beach before winter kicked in so we took advantage of that and I even wet my hair with the ocean. The cheapest and easiest beach waves ever, huh?

I’m wearing top and chunky sweater coat from Zara, leather shorts from Mango and accessories from Michael Kors.

Where should we shoot next? Any ideas, let me know in the comments!

A walk on the beach

One of my favorite things in Los Angeles is that you can go down to the beach anytime you want. I๏ธ think I๏ธ might have said that before, but it’s really true. I’m a hopeless romantic, what can I๏ธ say?

So this time I๏ธ met up with an upcoming photographer/filmmaker Ou Zhang (Instagram: @ouzhangstudio) to do an analog and digital shoot without any other equipment but the camera and the gorgeous sunset. Here’s what we got out of this beautiful late afternoon.

I๏ธ am wearing a Zara dress, DKNY sweater, Chanel foundation and Maybelline matte lipstick.

Tell me about your favorite beach in the comments below.

Out of the woods

One of my first photo shoots in LA was in Pasadena and the photographer had an idea to make it a โ€˜fairy lost in the woodsโ€™ theme. And you know me, Iโ€™m all for themes and creative ideas so I was on board immediately. And hereโ€™s what happened on that magical day.

I am wearing a skirt from H&M, shirt from Zara and this time no shoes! ๐Ÿ™ˆ Lipstick is a liquid matte lipstick from MAC. Recommend it if you want a great quality, long-lasting matte lipstick that doesnโ€™t dry your lips. ๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ’„

What is your favorite matte lipstick brand?

Another week in LA

So maybe it won’t be a weekly blog as there are so many things happening that I literally didn’t have time to write this. So I’m just gonna some up all the greatness that went on over the last two weeks.

First off I want to talk about Universal CityWalk. There is a whole area of Los Angeles dedicated to films, shocked, right? And this is where you go through to go to Universal Studios which is a theme park. But for people who don’t want to go to the same park, they can just walk around and see all kinds of billboards, stores and everything. So we decided to walk around and we stumbled upon this amazing wall soโ€ฆ Obviously I had to take a picture. ๐Ÿ˜Š


On our walk we stumbled upon a line of people which is very common in the US. I don’t know why but people like to line up for thingsโ€ฆ which might be weird but when you see it you just want to get in that line to see what’s up! ๐Ÿ˜‚ so with did! And the line was for a drink called Mini Monster. It was advertised as a dessert drink but you could also get flavored lemonade. When you wanted a dessert drink you got the lemonade and on top of it you got a huge cotton candy cloud thing with sprinkles on it. It looked like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I only got the guts to try a simple lemonade though. ๐Ÿ™Š here it is!


Another day we went to see the Whitney movie about her life called can I be me? Went to this small art cinema to watch it and on the way we found a pretty cool street, so obviously, another photo op.


Last time I told you that I am a musician as well and I took time to meet with Bruce, who is a great podcaster from Florida. Now here this entertainment, that’s the name is of podcast, did an interview with me about two years ago and you can listen to it here.


This summer season stripes were so popular that I had to get a dress from ZARA before I left for LA. Not that I didn’t have like a dozen striped shirts already but you know, an addiction is an addiction… ๐Ÿ˜‚ 


As you may know I’m not a summer person, so it’s even more fun that I get to be in LA for the worst heat wave in decades. It’s 40ยฐC for those of you who know what that means you know that it’s crazy hot. So that’s one of the reasons why you don’t see my face and my make up because it just melts right off my face so most of the time I don’t even put on any. But there are a few places where you can hide out until the heat wave is gone, and other than air-conditioned malls and your car you can always go to the beach. I guess that’s not too shabby. So you know what comes next! Yes, a photo opportunity by the beach.  ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ฆ so we got in the car got ourselves some nice sushi and went straight to Venice Beach to cool off.


And then Sunday night came. Those of you who are music fans know that the Video Music Awards are almost as important as the Grammys and the Brits. So we decided to check out a VMA after party in downtown LA. There were so many cool people from the music and movie scene mingling and networking and giving out business cards. I also got to experience my very first red carpet. I never thought that this was so intimidating. We have like 10/ 15 seconds to look great and pose and smile and make an impression. I tried my best but I have to admit I felt like I’m on another planet. Here’s a side picture of my red carpet moment.

Oh yes, I almost forgot, after we decided that the night was over for us we got hungry and we heard about this place, Pink’s hotdogs which is a very famous hot dog stand in Hollywood. It’s famous for the fact that whenever you go there, there’s always a line… and it’s true! There it was! And I have to admit I’m not a big hot dog person but this chili cheese dog was one of the best things that I ate here! Hats off to Pink’s hotdogs!

Have you seen Forrest Gump? What am I saying, of course you did, everyone saw that movie, it’s iconic! So in the US there’s a place, an actual restaurant called Bubba Gump and they obviously serve many kinds of seafood. And there’s one restaurant at the Santa Monica Pier which we love because of the beautiful view. So on our last day before my love had to go home, we went there and ate some great fish and chips. And you know, Americans know how to entertain and make things exciting, so that’s what they did with Bubba Gump. The whole restaurant is decorated with Forrest Gump memorabilia, quotes from the movie, pictures and there’s even a bench outside of the restaurant. I think it’s so great that when you come to the US you get what you expected or even more. โค๏ธ
