Success takes time, patience, and dedication.






Check me out in NU-MODE MAGAZINE: STYLE PERSPECTIVE pg 200-201!


This past summer I had the opportunity to shoot with Daniel Rampulla and interview with John Mark of Nu-Mode Magazine. In the past, I worked with John Mark and he was one of the sweetest people I ever met. When I was scheduled to meet with the photographer, Daniel, we had the best conversation about fashion, style, art, and photography. He was definitely one of the most unique person I have ever met whilst living in New York. 

The day of the photo shoot happened to be one of the hottest days of NYC. I had prepared a change of 3-4 outfits and was sweating profusely! I was not cute... Luckily for me, I had a chance to stop into Brooklyn Roasting Company to grab an ice cold coffee. Oh, how that helped cool me down...

The shoot was successful, but my trip home was dreadful. I'm sure you all can guess what happens on a hot humid New York City day!


Thank you Daniel, John Mark, and Nu-Mode Magazine for this amazing feature. I look forward to your future issues! <3

world's best little sister




As an older sister, I couldn't be any prouder of my baby sister, Nikki. She started her own online vintage boutique, Paperdolls, and still managed to study hard and to attend school. Maintaining a balance between work, life, and passion isn't as easy as it may seem. I've definitely been there and it has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding experience ever. This post is dedicated to my baby sister whom I am utterly proud of. 

Please support her online boutique by clicking on the following link, Paperdolls.

my bday weekend




HEY, it’s my bday! 
i celebrated my first bday in NYC. unfortunately, i don’t know too many people yet to make it a BIG one but i was inspired recently by one of my gf’s halloween ideas, PARTY ANIMALS! 3 days prior to my bday i sent a FB invitation and invited everyone i knew in NYC to join me in their fancy outfits and cute animal masks. 
the night went down like this, celebrated by bday at The Ugly Kitchen until 330am, stopped at Capella to get a couple dance moves in, and made my final destination to the airport. drunk as i was i made it on the plane and knocked out. 
made it home, took a shot of plum wine at 11am (forced by my parents due to it’s deliciousness) and recovered for the 2nd part of Party Animals at my favorite venue, Honey Lounge. like always i had to end the night dancing to amazing music DJ’d by Brother Author. #TRAPSTEPMUSIC
i continued the weekend with a princess party at my parents. had all my baby nieces dress up in their fancy dresses, pranced around in the backyard, and had an ultimate tea party. 
yep, that pretty much wraps up my amazing bday weekend. 

as always, i have photos! =)

[recap] NINH Collection 2013 Spring & Fall




congratulations to my friend Ninh Nguyen for another successful show. the venue was at capacity with a variety of styles ranging from street to high end. we were even accompanied by will.i.am of black eyed peas. Ninh's Spring and Fall 2013 collection was a mere representation of who he is and what he represents, "The NINH label is for the modest, confident man, the intellectual and cultured, the passionate and open-minded – a modern-day Renaissance man."- Ninh Collection Mission. i was honored to attend this show and was extremely pleased by the execution put on by another personal friend of mine, Miss Rachel of R.L.H. PR. cheers to great friends and company.

This past weekend (and this upcoming weekend) I've been part of TopshopNY's Fashion Mob for their Summer Celebration. I've got to say, my first time riding a bike around the city was amazing. I want now more than ever to purchase a bike. Thanks Topshop and Adeline Adeline for breaking my biking virginity in NYC. <3

Peep the photos below from last weekend, snapped by yours truly and our good friend @JustBrad. <3

Stay tuned and look out for the TopshopNY Fashion Mob this weekend while we ride dirty on our customized Adeline Adeline bikes <3
