CAREER: [good things | good experiences]

Sometimes you wonder what's the next step for you and your career and if you're anything like me, you're super quick to jump to the next thing so you can learn more and experience more. I've definitely had plenty of moments where i've felt questionable about the path that I'm on, especially being at the age that I am now (30) my mind and body are quick to move along and move up fast. But I know that I'm very lucky to be working for an amazing stylist that truly and honestly respects me and that's hard to find. In the fashion/Entertainment Industry It's not often you're able to work with/for someone who says "Thank you for everything!" on a pretty regular basis, appreciates you and gives you uplifting words of encouragement.

Plus it definitely doesn't hurt that the stylist thinks of me when cleaning out her sample / kit / her closet. Today she gave me this Dolce & Gabbana champagne satin sheath dress (shown in photo). I have to get it tailored to my body, fix a little tear and steam out the wrinkles but other than that... i think its safe to say I definitely scored!! (on top the the V&F flowerbomb purfume and YSL platform pumps she already gave me >_<)

Did i ever mention how i found the lovely Stylist that I'm currently assisting?! It's actually from a contact a picked up while living out in NYC for 3 months during the winter. The person i was working for at Halston recommended me to the stylist and told her that i was going back to LA and lucky for me the Stylist was looking for a new Assistant a few months after i had returned to LA. That just goes to show you that every and any experience is worth it... you never know what may come of it. Don't let anyone or anything thing hold you back from your dreams and experiences. So go out and explore the world in any way your heart desires!

I may not know what my career path has in store for me in the future but i sure can't wait and I'm definitely excited to see what's going to happen next. Stay tune...


MUST HAVE: [essie | matte finisher polish]

Look what I just found...
Essie has a top coat polish that makes your shiny polish have a matte finish called "MATTE about you". I'm so glad they decided to bring this back. I had one from Maybelline back in high school and LOVED it!

Also I just looked online and it looks like Maybelline either brought it back or still has their matte polish line.

I don't know about you guys, but I love me so matte nail color sometimes.

PERFUME: [viktor & rolf | flowerbomb]

a few months ago i went on a search for my "new" signature scent. a scent that i wouldn't mind putting on everyday. for a while it was Versus "Time for Pleasure" until it got discontinued (still love it!). then i went on to Victoria Secrets body spray "love spell" until i felt i needed a change... which was for a while now.

i actually went into a store to purchase YSL "Parisienne" when i finally came upon my new favorite fragrance, Viktor & Rolf' "flowerbomb". at that time i think my nose was going crazy so i decided to buy the petite 0.68 oz just to try it out and one day the Stylist I'm currently working for liked it on me so much she gave me her 3.4 oz bottle because she liked how it smelled on me better. Now how nice is she?!... Love her!!


PERSONAL: [moving | editing | unpacking]

Hi Lovelies!

It's been a while since my last post... I've crazy busy assisting the Fashion Stylist and in the middle of her busy schedule the Hubs and i had to pack up and move once again. Luckily as of lately the Stylist's schedule has died down a little, so I'm getting a little extra time to unpack and de-clutter our new apartment. You really never realize how much crap you have until you move. Right now I'm in the process editing out 90% of the things we have.

I think the Stylist I'm currently working for is rubbing off on me. I mean as much as i hate clutter, she REALLY hates it. Just last week we were going through her styling kit and she had these YSL platform high heel textured black pumps in my size (retail $795) and she gave them to me. SCORE!! {source:} One of the many perks of assisting a stylist.

One of the negatives is wanting everything you see, pull and can get your hands on. sigh! For now, I'll just unpack de-clutter and make room for future items.
