Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez SPLIT

10:06 PM Unknown 0 Comments

I was so proud to be a part of HLN's The Daily Share team this week.  We were among the first to break the news of Halle Berry's divorce LIVE on air. While I'm in NO WAY happy to hear that her marriage has ended, it is always a rush to be a part of breaking news. Watch the clip for my thoughts on Halle and her future - they just may surprise you! :) 


From Mexico, With Love

5:22 PM Unknown 0 Comments

Let's just say my first official trip to Mexico was one that I will never forget... for MANY reasons.  I have so many fun snapshots & videos from trip - I thought I'd put them all together in one blog (as opposed to flooding your instagram feed).  

SO... the purpose for the trip in the first place was to celebrate my Dad's wedding, which would take place on Saturday.  A group of about 30 of us flew in a few days earlier to sight-see and take in a bit of the culture... and the trip begins:

Airport selfie - about to hop on the red-eye
I arrive and get taken to meet up w/ the group at Lake Chapala for some sightseeing
This town is completely enchanting
& cute little shops
Did I mention FRESH donuts sold along the streets!?!?!  DELISH!
We head from there to a boat ride on Lake Chapala... I steered obvi!
Then back to our GORGEOUS hacienda style hotel in Guadalajara
Time to rest up for tomorrow's pre-wedding festivities!
Day 2:  Now, I've seen my share of incredible estates... but this one was unmatched.  My dad and his fiance [now wife] arranged for an incredible private brunch complete with MARIACHI BAND, dancing horses, and some DELICIOUS authentic Mexican food. 

#OOTD featuring some super colorful shorts I've been wanting to wear :)

Brunch with a view of the indoor horse ring

Tried to pack our whole fam into a buggy

THIS FOOD THO!!!!! OMG heaven on earth!
So much color everywhere - couldn't resist snuggling up in this blanket for a pic.
Day 3:  The wedding.  Some of these aren't the best quality pics because they were taken on my iPhone 5 (yes I'm ghetto I know), but they represent some unforgettable memories so I wanted to share them regardless. :)
Daddy about to get hitched!
last minute tweaks :)

A Prayer for Israel

12:30 AM Unknown 1 Comments

 Okay so at this point you're probably realizing that my blog is an interesting mix of fashion, beauty, pop culture, music and even a little politics here and there.... which actually sums up "me" as a person pretty well.

Today I'm focusing on the here and there, on the nation of Israel - which also happens to be a political hot topic. :)

I won't go into the history of what's transpiring - as it dates back hundreds of years. What I will say is that terrorism has killed more Israelis in the past month than in the last two years.   Over 100 more have been injured due to this wave of violence.  Terrorists are LITERALLY running through the streets with butcher knives, stabbing whomever they can, running their cars into crowds of people, and gunning down families.  Meanwhile - much of the world remains silent... silent until Israel retaliates and [the majority of] the media can paint her as the aggressor.

I'm going to stop myself here because I could literally write about this subject for hours and hours, and that's not the point.

Over the past few days, my heart has been SO heavy for all those living in the midst of this unrest.  The purpose of this post is to honor all of the families who've been directly impacted by the recent terrorism, and to offer up a prayer for the nation of Israel.

The video below is a song I wrote along with my good friend Misha Goetz.  [Check out her music by clicking here!]  It begins with the Shema - one of the most historic and sacred Jewish prayers. 

Our prayer is that this song brings at least a tiny bit of peace and comfort to those who need it.

 "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure"

Psalm 122:6
