Macaron Cafe

I just had to share with you these macarons I got from Macaron Cafe. They were nice enough to expedite these sweet treats all the way from New York straight to my workplace at Fyusion HQ. I decided to share them with all my coworkers (sharing is caring!) and everyone LOVED it!! I have to say these are more flavorful than the ones I’ve tried from other macaron shops, and pretty much my new favorite. We’re contemplating on ordering some more at the office. Be sure to check out Macaron Cafe if you’re craving amazing macarons since they ship nationwide too! Special thanks to Rachel for modeling these macarons for me (click here for our Fyuse!).

Binh | Faith and Lace

I first discovered Binh (@worelikealion) not on Instagram but on Fyuse!! She was one of the most active and fun accounts to follow on the app, and I knew I just had to shoot with her one day. The moment finally came when she told me she was coming down to LA. I just happened to be in LA that same weekend too. We did a collaboration shoot for Faith & Lace as well, which is another brand that you should definitely keep an eye out for when they launch! I had a blast with Binh in Manhattan Beach, and I was sad we only got to shoot for a few hours since I had to catch a flight right after. This was definitely one of my favorite photoshoots! Can’t wait to shoot with her again. Check out her blog too: Click Here. Stay tuned for more posts – we did 6 looks that day!

Marika | Little Mistress

Just recently heard of a fashion brand from UK called Little Mistress. After they approached me for a collaboration, I immediately said yes once I saw their amazing collection. I knew Marika (@JPInsider) would be the perfect blogger for me to shoot the dresses with, and she definitely took my breath away in this Pink Floral Bandeau Maxi Dress. We shot this in our favorite little district, Hayes Valley. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Be sure to follow Little Mistress on Instagram: @littlemistressuk.

Ariana Lauren | Paradise Cove

I’ve never been to Paradise Cove in Malibu Beach. Ariana Lauren, Christina Aguayo, and I came upon this perfect beach cove because we were hungry during the drive and the Paradise Cove Cafe seemed like a great idea! I am so glad we all went here! The food wasn’t so bad, and the location was perfect for a bikini shoot! Be sure to stop by here someday if you are driving along Malibu Beach / Highway 1! See more of our Malibu shots on Ariana’s blog: Malibu.

Essy Park | So Kawaii

I first came across Essy Park at the FashionTap Launch Party a few months ago. I was mesmerized by her style when I saw her walked through the crowd. I wasn’t the only one either, a couple of other bloggers started wondering who she was. I finally had a chance to talk with her and we decided to keep in touch to shoot someday. We finally had our chance to do so this past May. We ventured around LA Arts District for some cool backdrops to shoot. This outfit was kawaii to the max! Her Rilakkuma-everything is everything! Be sure to check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: Essy Noir: Yellow Tales.

Leah Ho | SoHo Vibe

During my visit to New York City, I had a sweet opportunity to meet and catch up with Leah Ho of Lipstick Catwalk. She is one of my favorite bloggers in NYC and I was just happy we had time to snap a couple of pics! We also did some really cool Fyuses too: Click Here. I really wish we can shoot more often! SoHo is one of my favorite districts in New York, and I look forward to exploring some more cool spots there someday. Be sure to check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: NYC Little Italy.

LA Weekend | WeHo, Malibu, Venice

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I wanted to share my LA adventures from this past weekend with my partner-in-crime Ariana Lauren. I first started my trip with an awesome ride with Blacklane from my front door all the way to SFO airport. The car was super smooth and the driver was really nice. We totally bonded and talked about life! Did I mention to you how I’ve vowed to be always early getting to my flights now ever since I missed my flight from NYC to SFO a few weeks ago? Anyways, be sure to check out Blacklane whenever you need a car service to anywhere! Ariana and I then met and had lunch at the Virgin America terminal. First thing she said when she met me: “I want brown rice.” So we did.

The flight was smooth. This is us right before takeoff.2015-05-29 11.35.18

After getting our rental car, we dropped by Me Undies Headquarters in Culver City to meet with my friend Robbie and his team. We totally love their selection of underwear – be sure to check them out!2015-05-29 21.26.20

After checking in The Charlie Hotel, we then trekked to Sunset Blvd for a late lunch with Miss Arika Sato. We took some shots around Sunset Blvd and Melrose Avenue later on. It was nice to get some sun and warmth compared to the cold SF weather.2015-05-29 20.37.30

The next day, I did a quick shoot with Arika and we both got our favorite juice at L.A. Juice on Melrose Avenue!2015-05-30 11.07.28-2

Then Ariana, Christina Aguayo, and I took off for Malibu. It’s such a beautiful region but the drive is insane especially when there is traffic. But totally worth it!

Here’s Christina when we were at Islands. We were so hungry after the shoot that we didn’t care where we ate!2015-05-30 16.50.21

Later on, Christina, Fiona, Ariana and I all went to the Me Undies Pop-up Party on Abott Kinney. It was such a blast! I got to meet some amazing people from the Me Undies team! Fiona has a super fun recap from the party on TealKitty.com.2015-05-31 15.49.54 2015-05-31 15.49.55-1 2015-05-31 15.49.55-3

And last but not least, I was happy to have a moment to shoot with Marianna Hewitt! She’s so lovely! If you were following her on her Snapchat, we had a moment where she acted like my Uber driver. Add her “Marianna_Hewitt”!Marianna Hewitt Melrose Avenue

 

So many photos to process after this weekend! Excited to share them all with you!

 

Marianna Hewitt | LA Summer

I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot with the lovely Marianna Hewitt during her video shoot with GUESS during my last trip in LA. I joined the team in Santa Monica at the pier on what felt like a nice early summer afternoon. It was a lot of fun working with an awesome crew. I don’t normally shoot in Santa Monica due to hordes of tourists, but we managed to work around them. Here are some behind the scenes, the video, and the photos I took! Be sure to check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: Los Angeles Summers. Here’s a Fyuse I took of her: Click Here.
