5 friends who met here on @instagram - @shayesanjuan @_themakeupdoll @aliciadangelo @haleyoberhausen - decided to have our first in-person meet up here in Vegas and our week was uhhhmazing!!! We all are still drooling over this sushi we had at @jjangalv (swipe for mouth-watering pics!) and pretty sure @haleyoberhausen is obsessed with the grapefruit sake we had there. 🤤 Thank you so much @thatchongster and @jmpforce for a DELISH dinner!! Aside from eating...A LOT, we went so see some shows, bonded over our love for emo music 😍, partied real hard in our Ubers, and got scammed like tourists by Vegas promoters. 😂😂😂 The interwebs can be a real dark, craptastic place at times, but it can also be a really rad place to bring people together with common interests. I can’t wait to see these girls again!! But next time @alina_roche HAS TO BE THERE. 🎉

Over the years, I have met some truly outstanding people, but meeting @rupaulofficial was on another level. 🤩 To say he is and has been an inspiration is an understatement. (Though that was the best I could say in person because his presence is just...so wonderful.) RuPaul is a leader, a role model, a mover and shaker, and a world changer. The way I see drag being accepted now (thanks to all who do it! but extra thanks to @rupaulsdragrace) makes my heart so so happy. It’s a beautiful thing to see people be creative and express themselves and I can’t wait to see more people get comfortable with living authentically and playfully. 
You guys should all go watch his first episode with @mrdrewscott, @mrsilverscott and @j_corden! I’ve put the link in my stories and bio as well to make it easier. This talk show is something I would really love to see so well, so make sure you share it around if you’re into this awesome idea of spreading love. 😍

The acting headshots I’ve never had. 📸 
Little known fact, I actually wanted to be an actress. Still do really. I was in theater from elementary to high school and the only reason I didn’t pursue it after graduating was because I was way too pragmatic (sometimes still am 🙈) and I didn’t want to ride the struggle bus. I knew if I went to NYC to pursue Broadway or LA to pursue film or hosting, it was gonna be hard with all the competition, having a completely different environment than ol’ Amarillo, TX, and finding time to rehearse plus manage the several jobs I would have to have for the much higher cost of living. It wasn’t that I didn’t believe I could do it - I knew deep down I could. But I let some of those doubts speak too loudly. The path I chose has been so much different that what I wanted, but hot damn it’s been so much better than I could have imagined! I don’t regret not pursuing a passion because where I am now is truly wonderful. And I do believe that the platform I’ve built for myself now could lead to acting and hosting opportunities later. 💗 We all do things ( or don’t do) that we can regret, but I think it’s important to find the purpose/learn from anything that could be regrettable. In all honesty, the ONLY things I regret in life are when I didn’t treat people nicely. But even that taught me how to not be an a-hole. 😂

What’s your self-care place? 💗 🎀 
Today I saw @chrissasparkles talking about how she goes to cute places as part of her feel good regimen and that’s part of mine as well. While it works perfect because I can combine a lot of things I love - cute places, modeling, getting dressed up, creating content to share with you all- I just genuinely enjoy being in cute, well-thought our spaces. And sometimes I don’t even dress up to go. It’s nice to go and enjoy a place for what it is. ☺️ Are there certain places you all enjoy going to? Yoga, mountains, patios, cute cafes, oceans, backyards, CrossFit? I love hearing what brings you peace and happiness. 😃

This guy is really just the best. ☺️ @mrjdscott and I took some new photos with @kristofflutchman Sunday night and they came out so great! Also would like to point out that Kristoff made his own ring light, complete with battery! 🙌🏻 Always nice to get back in touch with friends we haven’t seen in a while.

Today is not cute like these photos. 😂🙈🙃
But no one would ever know if I didn’t say anything, right? I shot these while I was in LA last week because let’s face it, this room is pretty perfect. 💁🏼‍♀️
As we follow more and more people online, it becomes easier to feel inadequate if we compare ourselves to others. It’s tricky not to do that because we are inundated with perfect photos and videos. Even if someone is posting in their stories a ton, we have to remember that isn’t their ENTIRE day. We don’t generally see the nasty fight that perfect couple got into or the chronic illnesses that cause pain and discomfort every day to that girl with the perfect body. At the end of the day, we ALL are human and have to experience some pretty not great things. And when we’re in a not great space, it’s easy to feel “less than”. I’ll share one thing that was really hard for me. This whole “influencer” thing wasn’t my goal. I started using social media as a platform to share and book modeling work. Then makeup/hair work. And about 6 years later, influencers became a thing. At times it was very discouraging to see these people at 20 years old traveling the world not only for free, but for work! Just to show off some cool spots. At times it seemed like I missed the boat, that I hadn’t done things quite right. But then half of the time when I meet other people in this industry, I’m really not envious of their lives. There is so much hustle and heartache beyond a lot of the content we see. Even now, working with celebrities and whatnot, I find more and more that there is truly no comparison between lives. When I think about it how, had I been an influencer at 20, I would have missed out on so many experiences (wonderful and horrific and all in between) that I feel make me a super well rounded person now. 
So my thoughts for the day, live yourself, make the best of your life, and if you have an off day like I am today, just push through and keep in mind that tomorrow is a new day and you are blessed! 💗

Cabo has a lot to offer, but I have to say, @florafarms was my favorite thing there. 🧡 We walked up to this adorable market area, filled with artisan shops, bright flowers, an ice cream stand, and all the healthy, happy vibes a person could want and I knew it was going to be an amazing night. Our dinner table was outside where lots of adopted dogs ran around freely, without bothering anyone, but we’re definitely friendly and enjoyed the pets. 🐶 Their farm is organic and they had many delicious vegan and gluten free options! Farm-to-table restaurants never disappoint me, but this place exceeded any expectations we had. A few of us may have even shed some tears over the amazing conversation and feels we had there! 😭❤️ The drink in my hand is a carrot margarita, and holy wow...it was DELISH. Actually, very drink we tried was pretty outstanding. I could go on and on about how spiritual this place was. Check out my stories if you wanna see more! 😍 Oh, and swipe over for that rad Spice Girls pic. 🙌🏻 DRESS & BRALETTE: @holdyourcolourrr

What do you like about makeup? And if you wear it, what is your reason? 💄 🤔💗
I wear makeup because I love color and I love to change the shape of my facial features sometimes. It gives me so much room to be creative! But I would be lying if I didn’t say that part of it is a societal thing. You all know I’m big on makeup-free days, but I don’t really think I could go to an event with no makeup. There are some societal things I’m okay with, because I can have fun that way. It’s just like getting dolled up for me. Any excuse to play dress-up and paint my face! But that’s just me personally. I know some beautiful people who go to events bare-faced and totally rock it. I think the point in trying to make is that if you love makeup, WEAR IT. If you hate it, DON’T. Do you, boo! But don’t judge anyone else for doing them. 😘

FOUNDATION: @toofaced Born This Way concealer (it’s great as foundation!)

Had the best time hitting up a fun vintage shop on my drive back from LA last week!

I used to thrift at least 1-2 times per week in high school after school. As an adult I stopped going as much and idk why because it honestly makes me so happy, even if I’m just browsing and not buying. 
And when I do find stuff to buy, I just love it! It’s rad that almost everything I get is no longer produced and it has a history. I love that it’s not contributing to fast fashion and it’s an eco conscious way to shop and still have cute new things. I’m not all there with stopping on fast fashion 100% but I’m doing so much better than last year already. 🙌🏻 Here are some of my fave finds that I didn’t buy. 😃

Do any of you love vintage or thrift shopping? Estate sales are next on my list to get into. 😍

Crazy how that worked out. 🙌🏻 Tell me all about your road trip buddies! 😃
