Bead Relief

Bead relief creates jewelry that helps non-profits raise awareness and donations for their cause. The philosophy of Bead Relief makes it possible for people to make a difference while striving to spread awareness by wearing their charity and feeling good about it!  The bracelets are handmade and support artisans.  The goal is to be the solution for charities and to spread the message when someone is wearing their charity.  Twenty five percent of each sale will go to the profit of choice.  I would love to become a brand ambassador for Bead Relief.  Here in Las Vegas, there is a community.  Aside from the glitz and glam of the twinkling lights of the strip, stands a community that I would like to actually get more involved with on other aspects.  It would be great to spread awareness with local nonprofits using Bead Relief and if not with Bead Relief then through something similar.  I love what this company has created.  For more information visit www.beadrelief.com

RBX Activewear

Working out makes me feel awesome! As a fashionista, having comfortable and stylish gym gear motivates me to workout even more so I was excited when I got asked to review these cool moisture wicking workout pants by RBX.   Sold at department stores and sporting good stores, RBX caters to women of all ages.  The collection of tops, bottoms and jackets are easy to mix and match to reflect an individual's style as they travel from the gym to the street.  Sizes range from S-M-L-XL.  I absolutely love stylish fitness apparel such as RBX because it's mostly what I live in when I run around conquering errands after a workout.  I enjoyed the camo print in this military green and grey since most of my athletic shoes have highlights of neon green in them.  Yoga is a nice way for me to decompress and these will be a nice addition to my yoga collection.

Street Symphony



Music will always be my first love.  Being the closest thing to my soul, I have no idea why I run from it sometimes.  The emotions that surface when I sing certain songs that pull me deep into the abyss of my subconscious might be why I tend to run.  Certain notes resonate on a higher frequency and I feel as if all of this we go through is only temporary.  In my gut I know there are other dimensions where spirits that we are familiar with who we've known and have known even long before we were born, communicate to our souls through the frequencies of music by allowing certain artists to share those gifts with this world in this lifetime.  Am I weird for thinking this?  Possibly.  I can be having the best day ever, but if I start singing along to certain sad songs I'll break down in tears out of nowhere because I'll feel the music that much.  Perhaps that's why we can all connect with music because it allows us to feel on a deeper level.  I can be driving in my car somewhere getting ready to do something fun and I'll sing a slow ballad, and boom, tears down my face.  I feel crazy sometimes that it happens but it's also therapeutic to me.  I guess I'm just a strange one. They say "Music is what feelings sound like." Growing up all I ever sang were slow ballads and sometimes I'd be drawn to gospel music.  I'll sing along to the most depressing songs ever created by awesome artists yet I've always genuinely been a happy person.  In most instances, I tend to be a goofball who loves to make people laugh while being my loud and crazy self!  Why have I always enjoyed the saddest songs beats the heck out of me!  It's bizarre to me that those depressing tunes are what I love to sing.  For the longest time I would try to write the saddest songs and no words will surface on paper to express "sad emotions."  Don't get me wrong, I've had plenty of sad stuff happen to me and I have had some blue days, but when I try to make sense of those emotions, I bore myself.   Music is a source that allows us to feel even more connected to one another and that's what I want to establish in each piece of music I write and sing.  Perhaps the goosebumps I get from creating and singing freaks me out sometimes, but is that my human sign in the physical that it's what I should be doing?  I believe it's what I should be doing for my own personal growth and it goes beyond the point of "making it." The frequencies in music I believe surpasses through to other realms.  I know most musicians and artists can relate.  I believe we are all spiritual beings having a human experience and music takes us there.  I've realized the only way for me to be "successful" is to follow my own impulses and to let the magic of music reveal itself to me.  In the end, the goosebumps and tears must be confirmation of my soul saying to let go and let the street symphony of life take over so I can leave a piece of me behind to be remembered when I am gone.

Heart of DTLV






Love, it's what makes the world go round, right? I've always enjoyed artistic street styles in both music and fashion.  My soul feeds off the vibes of the major metropolis cities around the world where cultures stand united and eclectic styles grace concrete jungles.  One of my favorite art pieces in downtown Vegas is a metal caged heart with tons of locks attached signed by people from the first ever Life is Beautiful festival in downtown Vegas.  Right before entering Container Park on Fremont street, this cool piece of art has become the heart of downtown Vegas... no pun intended.  I believe art and beauty can be found anywhere.  For some, beauty is hard to see in downtown aspects of cities. Much like the boardwalk in Venice Beach, California, seeing a bunch of weirdos dress up in strange costumes isn't a cup of tea for everyone, but for me, I feel more alive in strange scenes such as that.  Perhaps deep down I'm just a strange person trying to feel not so strange?  Either way, I absolutely love the madness that downtown brings.  The art, the music, the fashion, and the culture are all a reflection of my crazy free spirited soul which makes the cool bars, venues, and restaurants my kind of zone.  Don't get me wrong, I love the strip, but I usually prefer the artistic eclectic hearts of downtown.

When in Doubt, Pack A Hat


Nostalgia kicks in with this awesome Pack A Hat by Cappelli Straworld of the days I was in St. Barths a few years ago for the show I'm happy to say I've been in for nearly 6 years.  Where was this hat when I could not decide on what hats I wanted to pack due to limited space in my travel bags for the islands?!  I remembered having five beach hats that I wanted to take, but due to their size and structure, I couldn't pack them all in my suitcase.  First world problems, right?!  Who would ever want to narrow down options on what to take on a trip?  Not me!  This hat by far would be on the top of my list to pack!  When asked to do a review for Cappelli Straworld I figured how perfect it would be as resort wear or for everyday use for my future travels to beaches over the summer.  I opted for black because the swimsuits I would normally buy and wear are pretty neutral so black would match the best for me.  The hat has a UPF of 50+ so that you can look stylish and enjoy the sunshine without worrying about sun damage.  I absolutely loved the cute bag that it came in because it can be used to carry small items such as a camera, lip balm, sunscreen, keys, cards and any other items you would normally throw in a purse all while protecting them from beach sand.  Want to jump in the water or pool and get your hair wet?  The hat easily folds up and fits right into the bag without taking up space! No stress on packing with a retail value of $25.  Pack a Hat is a chic and simple concept which equals...perfection!
