Where do I even begin? I guess I’ll start with January. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was at the market shopping for groceries when I saw an urgent casting inquiry in my inbox. It was for a Chris Brown & Tyga music video. I FREAKED. Texted Ellen right away, she was ecstatic for me. Not five minutes later, she got the same email. Yes! The next day we went on to shoot the music video for “Ayo”. We made it into the video for a mere 3 seconds, but it was still AWESOME. Through that experience, we met the director Collin Tilley who casted us in his next project for Carnage and Makonnen. The song “Like Tuh”. That shoot was fun, because the entire thing was shot in Vegas (our second home). We also had to dig into some acting skills which was challenging but well worth it. January ended with two music video shoots for Ellen and I. Our firsts. The next few months became a bit of a blur. We frequented vegas a few times a month and were having the time of our lives.
Fast forward a few months to Coachella. I had never been before and I was adamant on going this year. I never thought this would happen, but I ended up getting sponsored to go with Ellen by Young & Reckless! It was a dream come true. I had seen so many other bloggers go in previous years under various brands. I was always either working or sitting at home stewing up in major jealousy. I was STOKED to finally get to go. And to be honest, it was the best weekend of my life! I had so much fun with Ellen and was so sad when it was over.
Once cuddle weather finally settled back in LA, my schedule slowed down. The only event I had left to look forward to was my trip to SF with Josh. I’ve been to SF several times, but each time is always better than the last. It’s one of my favorite cities to grub. I visited some of my favorite food spots, as well as checked out some new ones. This was just a short getaway for us. We did make some time for friends while we were there. The weather was majorly gloomy. Rained mostly, but it was still well worth the trip. I also decided to do my first meet and greet on my own. To be completely honest, I was so nervous and thought only three people would show up. To my surprise. about twenty people showed up, which is way more than I could have imagined. It was so humbling to get to talk to everyone who came. Some of them even gave me letters and gifts! They were so completely sweet and reminded me of why I love doing what I do. That meet and greet definitely made my year.
That pretty much sums up my year. It’s been an absolute dream. I had no idea a year ago that all of this would happen, and I’m so eternally grateful. All because I decided to finally get off my butt and start my blog. I’m so happy and lucky to get to travel for work. The best part is, it doesn’t feel like work. Thank you guys for reading my blog, following me on social media & keeping up with my life. I couldn’t have done any of this without you. Cheers to YOU! So ready for 2016. Hope everyone stays safe tonight. Have a great new year!
