Models, photographers, a designer, and make-up artist all walk into a bar…..then they all plan a trip to Cuba! Well, not exactly how it this trip happened, but it did feel pretty spontaneous.
I have always wanted to travel to Cuba and with the right amount of luck I was fortunate to meet the right poeple at the right time and 3 weeks later, here I was.

When people think of weddings in Vegas, it usually involves and small walk-in chapel, an Elvis impersonator, a showgirl and sometimes even a drive-thru! Its all about the frills and gimmicks. But did you know you can have beautiful, intimate, and romantic wedding at small rustic vineyard right outside the city that never sleeps? Well don’t worry I didn’t either until this year when I was asked to do a wedding styled photoshoot there.
Pahrump Valley Winery is a local winery that produces its own brand of wine as well as supplies grapes to other Nevada brands. Located only 45min away from Vegas, Pahrump,NV is a great weekend getaway option that I will write a post about at later time. If you are looking to have a in wedding in Las Vegas that is not your typical “Vegas” wedding. I would definitely consider this amazing undiscovered venue.

After a long weekend in Cali for my brother’s wedding, I needed a good detox breakfast smoothie. I might of had one too many cocktails and foods that are not on anybody’s diet program. This is one of my favorite go to smoothies. I love smoothies that have greens but not overpowering, some sweetness but not to sugary. This one has the tropical taste of mangos, pineapples, and coconuts.
Try it, love it!
Frozen Mangos and Pineapples
Almond Coconut Milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
Mixed Power Greens or Spinach
Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
Ground Flax Seeds
After blending in my nurti-bullet, I sprinkle a little ground flax seed on top.
With the protein and fiber packed in this jar…this will hold me over for a few hours.
