I am packing for Mexico today… One suitcase already full of Around the World Lookbook gear: eco friendly, handmade, hand crafted, home made, sustainable jewels, shirts, skirts, pants, dresses, bracelets, necklaces, beauty products, sun screen, shoes, accessories… I am overwhelmed at all the love and I can’t WAIT to rock & shoot it all!

First I am staying at the super posh Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Marilyn Monroe used to live there for a period of 3 years in the 1950’s and my favorites/mentors/idols Lucille Ball & Mae West also stayed there.  I am SO excited to shoot there!!

I thought I’d share with you some of the photos that Kris shot on our last trip to Joshua Tree/Palm Springs.  The idea of the Around the World Lookbook was planted during this trip and I’ve gotten such an overwhelming response since that I really can’t stop smiling!  I’ve been doing some extra running, lifting and push and pull ups to get my body in shape for some of these exquisite clothes!  Despite the tummy burn, I am super satisfied! 🙂

I really feel like the luckiest girl on Earth sometimes.  When I was young I used to sketch out and draw out plans like this and I kept them really dear to my heart.  To have so many wonderful people, companies and products interested in what I am doing and willing to support me in it is really beyond words sometimes.  The fact that in less than a month after we shoot this I will be in Italy shooting and exploring and styling even MORE is almost too much to comprehend!

A big, warm, long thank you to all of you!

Thanks again for making this possible, everyone! Beautiful photos to come! ♥
