Hey guys!  Am I too late for Easter? 🙂

My good friend Sam Spratt and I collaborated on this lovely painting.  You can check out “Mary” over here!  And don’t drool too much over Sam’s work – he gets very shy about it. 😉

I hope you all had a lovely holiday!  Me and Josh went to the Self Realization Temple in LA to say some prayers and meditate and say hi to Jesus (the real reason for Easter!) and we visited the Elliott Smith Wall in LA to pay a bit of homage.  I picked up some plants at Sunset Nursery to start Spring off right, and I have a fantastic announcement!

I’ve signed exclusively with Q LA!  They have been my dream agency for a very long time.  When I lived in NY I used to stalk their site and drool over all of their totally gorgeous girls and guys, wishing, hoping, praying… that some day… 🙂

Well, the day has come.  Mantras, prayers & dreams come true!  I really appreciate them taking a chance with me.  It’s a big step and I’m really happy with my choice.   We had a meeting and I signed yesterday, and by today, they had already uploaded my portfolio and we’re getting moving on castings!  Super profesh – I am very happy. 🙂

Raelie is too!

There are a few other things going on that I can’t wait to pop the top on, but I really like to have work to show before I talk about things. 🙂  I appreciate your e-mails and you guys bearing with me! I’ve been well- just busy!

I am a bit overdue for a Beauty Blast, so I’ll share some of that with you now too!

I found Leahlani not too long ago on Etsy and I couldn’t wait to share this brand with you all!

Leahlani Natural Skincare products are created by Leah, a certified and trained holistic esthetician. All of Leahlani products are free of toxic ingredients and loaded with nourishing and natural ingredients that are designed to work in harmony with your skin.

Kauai Coconut Butter, blended on Kauai, is rich with vitamin E to heal and repair, & Shea butter, which is antioxidant rich.   Shea butter is also especially beneficial for stretch marks, eczema, dry skin, & general skin problems.  This Body Butter is delightful.  I really appreciate the hint of Vanilla.  Some Coconut products make my skin irritated but this is pure and lovely!

Definitely my favorite of the bunch, I’ve been using the Honey Microdermabrasion 3-in-1 Mask, Cleanser and Exfoliator daily for nourished, hydrated, kissable skin!  I love the smell, the texture and it doesn’t taste half bad either. 🙂

Leahlani’s Pikake Dream Cream is amazing!  I love the smell – Rosehip, Jasmine & Nature! 🙂  It just calls to me!  I really love to put this on before bed and let it sink into my skin.  Luxurious!

I’m normally not “too big” on Eye & Wrinkle Cream (call it denial! Haha) but I’ve given this one and good go and it’s really wonderful.  I’m happy with it!  Smells really pure, 100% natural with no irritation, I think I’ll be sticking with this for a long time!  A little goes SUCH a long way!

Aloha!

What a great week!  Thank you all for sticking with me and for believing in me.  Sometimes it gets hard to believe in myself and I have a lot of (totally normal) “WTF am I doing with my life?” moments.  It’s really nice to know it’s been purposeful after all. 🙂
