Time to clean up...the new year is coming!!!

Yep it's almost that time again!! The starting of the new year. Is it really that time? I can't believe it. Around this time I remember meeting my boyfriend at the time now husbands family. And look at us married, with a child. It's been a long and unforgettably year. Christmas was wonderful with the new family. Although I did miss my family in NC dearly I still had fun.
Oh btw I'll be posting the red dress I'm wearing on ebay tonight, so if you're interested check out my site - along with other items like maternity wear.

This coming year I know there will be big changes in my life, especially the growth of Gabby, mentally, physically, and socially. Let me tell you it's probably going to be a big challenge, but I'm really up for it with the power of God for most, and family and friends. I can't wait!!
Bring it on 2010!!

So I finally got to do some work since I've moved here to Miami. Did a promo for Miley Cirus on Wednesday, which was pretty fun. Got to finally work with a green screen. (As seen below)
Then on thursday I got to do a runway show @ Club Set.

Was pretty awesome!! Great experience for both events, but heart breaking to be away from Gabby. I love my lil munchkin!! She is my lil gem!
Anyways, we're still selling stuff on this site - so check it out!!

Black Friday

So this year my husband went shopping on Black Friday. He bough stuff for us and our website - (Make sure you check it out if you missed some of the sales on Friday)
I remember last year we had to work together for a event promotion at Macy's. It was so early we started at 4am and it ended at 9am. Then we went shopping. We really didn't get too much that year though.

Oh and have you seen the Polaroid Pogo!! It prints 2x3 images without ink (but you do have to get special paper) from your digital cam or even from your phone using blue tooth capabilities!!

(sorry didn't flip the image correctly)

That was a couple of the stuff we bought for ourselves. For our site we bought a couple of cameras make sure you check it out -

I can't wait until after Christmas shopping. Alot of stuff at walmart really caught my eye this year!

This week is going to be Gabby's two month check up and I'm a little nervous about her shot schedule. I'm nervous about the side effects and if some are even necessary. But we're going to discuss with the docs about everything, so we'll see. Also this week I'm going to see if I can get my hair colored. I really need to update my modeling book so I can get some work. I currently look like this, and I'm tired of the brownish/black hair. Anyways I'm going to try and catch some Zzzzz.

I have returned!!!!

I can't believe I haven't blogged since January!! Well I'm going to make points on my recent activities.

  • Moved to Miami, FL in July.
  • Got married on Aug. 16, 2009.
  • Gave birth to my beautiful baby girl on Sept. 30th, 2009
  • Back in shape after 2months and ready to model!!

So back to my regular format for this blog

After losing my little gut from my precious Gabby, I started putting myself out there on Modelmayhem and Craigslist. I got a great response and I'm excited to get back into modeling. Just a little sad thinking about not being with my Gabby at times. But we'll see how that goes, maybe some stuff I can do with her.
Photographer On My Mind
Well since I've moved here to Miami I've recently seen alot of work from alot of top photographers. It's awesome to finally be back in an area that has so many photographers in one area. I can't wait to work with some of them. I have two shoots set up for December and I will let you know how they turn out.

(About to fall asleep and will continue tomorrow/today, Goodnight All)

Going back to CALI, CALI, CALI...

Ok, this blog is going to be in different format than before, due to the fact I'm excited, scared, trilled and anxious!! I'm ready to go back to cali. I've decided to go back a year from the day I went and visited. During that time it was a ruff time due to the fires, and being short on money! I went down to cali to make money, but due to the fires, a lot of people were struggling and unfortunitly losing there houses!! It was a scary and sad time, but I feel this time things will go right. I currently don't have any jobs lined up when I get down there, so if you are from San Diego, CA and you're a photographer, promoter, fashion designer, talent agent, anything in the entertainment field, please take a look at my portfolio on or to get a taste of what I can bring to you and your business. I'm ready to work and put my self out there in the fashion, promotion world!! I have much more to say, and much more to reveal, so please check back soon.

Getting Ready

So I’m currently working on getting my body ready for this calendar shoot in July. Went out in the sun for at least 10mins and died from the heat, so I’ve decided I’m going to go the fake tan way, and apply bronzer. Pluses for that : Won’t harm my skin, Don’t have to die in the heat, and faster!! Does anybody know how this bronzer works?

I got work on my body, because I’ve been eating a little more greasy and fatty foods, out of stress!! Sad, but I’m working on it.

Photographer on my mind
John Covington Freelance Media

So I recently did a shoot with John Covington and with make up artist Eloria. We’ve worked on a couple of shoots together before. He was one of the first photographers I went up to and asked if he was looking for models. When it comes to me meeting people randomly with emailing them before is a little hard for me, because I still have a shy side to me. Well below are some shoots we’ve done you can also view his official websites and his artwork below the images by clicking on the links. Also check out Eloria’s myspace page -

Product Review/Movie Review/Whatever I review I can think of @ the moment

Welp, I had this craving for marzipan today, and which I’ll write a review about.

Thoughts on San Diego

I think when I was SD living downtown I went to Seaport Village almost everyday. It was a great way to relax, and I know I share many memories with special people in my life. Before I left I had a found a beautiful spot to cetch the skyline of SD and I finally took my own picture of it. Below is that picture. Seaport Village was a great place also to get an excersise walking throughout that whole area, it seemed never ending!

And in closing a place review with my final good bye.

So today’s place review is Cost Plus/World Imports. I’ve just recently found out this place is about 50miles away from me, and has excited me to make a trip there. I used to go there all the time in San Diego, which is a place that sells foreign items, like food, home furnishings, and artwork. My favorite part of the store is the Oriental sections. I especially love Japanese style, and that’s where I bought my first sushi set. A wok, chopsticks, and kitchen wear set. Well thanks for viewing, hope all is well...Take care and God Bless

Swimsuit Calender and MORE


So I was asked to be in my friends/photographer's calender, which I'm extremely stoked about. Means more publicity for me (and him), which I really need! It's going to be a swimsuit calender!! Soooooo I've gotta work out allot. I'm gonna post a before and after shot of how far I get before the shoot! Also I'm working on getting ready for my trip to Florida!

Photographer In Mind

Stephen Akers

Whelp since this is my first blog entry with my new set up I'm gonna start by giving info on the first photographer that I worked with when I started out modeling, was Stephen Akers. His work I would describe is versatile, intriguing and amazing!! He's very easy going to work with, and always has great ideas. You can check out his work @ his official site ,, or his online magazine -

Product Review

So since I brought up that I'm going to be in a swimsuit shoot, I'm gonna do a review about my favorite razor product. Schik Intuition Plus!! I love this razor!! I usually buy those cheap 99cent ones but since, I've found schik intuition I spend a little bit more but I have really nice soft legs. The razor has a soft lather around the blades, which makes your legs feel soft and smooth. So go and get it and try it out!!

Thoughts on San Diego
So I was talking to my boyfriend about moving to San Diego in August, but he doesn't want to move in that area with me. Probably because of my past, but if anything I'm interested in moving near La Jolla. The only main problem is its hella expensive...actually anywhere in SD is expensive. I just miss living downtown and having that city life experience, and being able to walk 2 the pier or a shopping mall, or a club!

Food Review
So my food review will be about my favorite restaurant in SD, called Sushi Deli 2. First off I'll admit the first main reason I liked this place was because of the prices! Then comes the taste of the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. The seating is pretty nice, my favorite would be the bar, because you can watch them make your sushi rolls and chat with them. Whelp that concludes my thoughts for today. Hope you enjoyed and will comment. Take care and God Bless.

If I were in San Diego Right now....

Titled "The Perfect Day"
I'd wake up to the beautiful ray of light from the sun and be living downtown. I'd hop on the trolley and head to mission beach and grab rolled tacos from the 'lil taco stand across from the jack in the box. Walk to the beach and lay out on the sand alllllllll dayum day, Till around 5 and head to fashion valley @ dlush and get a perl chai tea and then head back down town around 8pm and go to Sushi Deli two to get a bento plate, and more sushi till I couldn't eat no more. Then back home to sleep and do it allllllll over again!!!
(Don't get me wrong once I move back I'm gonna chill with my friends, and go to the clubs, and all the coffee shops in sd....but for just the time on my own or the first day back that's what I want to do)
The End
Ps don't mind the grammar and the run on sentences, because I really don't give a damn right now, JUST LET ME REMINECE OF THE OLD DAYS...mwu ha ah ah

Blender Magazine June 2008

So I first started looking at this mag, just to check out the article about Tila Tequila, then I saw an article about Emo Bashing. I have nothing against anybody emo, I even went out with a couple guys who were, and technically by the way i understand it I am aswell to an extent. I feel it's ridicules for anyone to have hatred towards them. I mean come on they pretty much don't bother anybody. I mean its not a crime to express your own style. I mean come on freedom of speech, and freedom to express yourself. Honestly I don't know if some parts are satanic or not but I feel there is no reason to hate another b/c of who they are.
