My Oscar Diary

oscars 5

Sunday was surreal! I’ve had the privilege of hosting at the Oscars 3 times now, and each year it gets better and better! This year, I co-hosted ABC’s On the Red Carpet at the Oscars fashion stream for 2 hours with Tina Malave from ABC7. The broadcast flew by, and we also had a few live spots on the TV show which was really cool! If you guys were able to catch the show, let me know in the comments.

I put together a vlog for you guys on my youtube channel to show you all just HOW much time and energy it takes to get ready for the Oscars. Take a look and let me know what you think! Big shout out to everyone who helped me get glam for the big day. Special thanks to e.l.f. cosmetics, Jean Dousset, and Monique Lhuiller! read more

Thai Travel Diary: Bangkok

BK 1

This look I wore day 2 in Bangkok. I’m wearing a black peasant blouse tucked into a vintage, patchwork skirt. It was so dang hot out, but since we were visiting temples, I had to have my legs and shoulders covered. A flowy skirt is always my go-to in this situation because it breathes. 

People always say that my spirit animal is Miss Frizzle from the Magic School Bus, and I think this outfit really exemplifies that. I bought this little brown TOPSHOP bag specifically for Thailand and it came in so handy! I used it all 12 days! But, I’m sad to report that I had to leave these platform espadrilles there because they got so gross walking around the city. Read more about my experience in Bangkok below!  read more
