So my first car ever was a jeep. I worked three jobs to get it. It was white and it was my everything. You know how it is when your a kid your car is your world. Your first keys to independence from your parents.
.
I remember I used to love hand washing it. It was always immaculate.
I even put huge tires on it to take it off roaring with my friends. I was a dare devil to the max with it.
The biggest memory I have of that car is the day I destroyed it. I was walking out of a building and I had it parked on a super steep hill and the Emergency brake popped out and it rolled straight down the hill into a telephone pole. No joke. Done. Car gone. Never drove it again. Couldn’t believe it right there in the middle of the street. A foot to the right or left and that jeep would have gone thru an apartment building and maybe killed someone.
None the less, I was devastated.
Luckily no one was hurt and I had insurance. But it showed me in that moment, material things come and go. No more car, poof in the one moment, I was without car. .
I never loved a car again the way I loved my jeep. R.I.P. baby. #jeep #wrangler #truelove ::::::📷—> @michaelmoretti

I can remember the first flight I ever took. It was to NYC. To film TRL in time square after being cut from American idol. After your cut from the show the very next day you are sent on a press tour. It’s extremely emotional but really awesome all at once. I cried in the cab all the way to plane. I didn’t even stop to think about the fact that I was about to get on a private jet and float thru the sky to an new land for the first time ever. Screw that... what did I care about jets? I was an emotional wreck. I didn’t care. But as I walked to the plane I started to pull myself together. But honestly most of the walk to the jet I was numb. It wasn’t till we took off and I looked down at the city as we flew away that I realized my life had changed. It was at that moment I became hooked on travel. Being on that plane that day and seeing the world from that view was one of the most surreal experiences of my life. It was the moment I realized how tiny of a speck I was in all of this. It was the moment I knew I wanted to see it all!
.
Personally I’ve never cared how I got to a place, smelly fairy, private jet, horseback, motorcycles, hiking thru mudd ( @michaelmoretti you know what I mean). I’ve just cared about the things I’ll experience when I get there. The people I will meet and how the things I learn in whatever new land I’m in will change me for the rest of my life.
.
That first trip to NYC changed me in a way I never could have imagined. It made me a lifelong gypsy. Forever fascinated with seeing the world and learning about humans. Can you remember your first flight? Or the moment you fell In love with travel? And why? Do tell. ....📷 by: @retroreid

Beware- challenge ahead. Don’t stop reading you chicken. Haha 😛🤓. So, Here is a photo of a women in front of a window with a view of Central Park in NYC. Ok?
.
Well, what we don’t see in this photo is how cold it was this day and also what we don’t see in this photo is all the humans below me in this city who froze that day because they didn’t have anywhere warm to be or anything warm to wear.
.
Right after I took this photo I went down to the street and I walked past a homeless man who had to have been freezing. I mean I was in a serious winter coat and he was in a thin old football t-shirt and shorts. I couldn’t help but break a bit inside as he passed me mumbling to himself and clearly showing signs of mental disability.
.
The thing is when we see these photos on insta we see what we want outside this window. We don’t think very far past our own visual experience. Pretty park, pretty room, bla bla bla. So I wanted to use this caption to take you further into reality. And that reality is...
It’s cold as hell in NYC
People are homeless. They need food and warmth. So this holiday season I double dog dare you to try a fun mission that me and my friends did years ago. (I swear it was a blast we laughed the whole night running around the city doing this. It was almost as fun as Toilet papering our teachers house in highschool. What?! don’t judge I grew up in a small town 🤷‍♀️) .
1- collect warm things- Jackets, Socks, beanies, sleeping bags, old sheets. Whatever. Curtains for god sakes.
2-put them in your car or back pack if your riding the subway. Make it work people.
3-get in your car at 1-4am. When most homeless people are asleep.
4- QUIETLY lay the warm things down next to said people in need of over them if you feel safe and quietly walk away. Super stealth like 😈. And then go home to your warm bed knowing you didn’t just received this x mas but you gave too. To me this is the best gift you can give yourself. The feeling of knowing you gave a tiny bit of warmth to another human.
.

Happy holidays I love the heck out of all of you!
Comment 😈if your gonna try this and comment 🎅🏼if you think I should do this and make a IGTV video about it. 📷—> @monica_dzik

You know when you have one of those moments when you just feel super confident? Like your almost untouchable? I’ve been thinking about it lately and started wondering where that feeling really comes from?
I think the most obvious answer for most people would be something like beauty, wealth, status.
But I believe for me personally when I feel the most powerful it has not been when I was wealthiest or fittest. It was when I was really showing love and compassion to everyone around me even when they put me thru challenging situations. Also when I’m proud of my choices as a women of integrity I feel literally unshakable. I don’t mean the kinda confidence that comes from a great workout I mean the kinda confidence that comes from knowing your heart is right. .
The thing is, I don’t think confidence starts with money or looks. I think it starts with simple plain ole LOVE. Love of others and then love of yourself.
.
Then you slap a sharp suit on, put on some make up or cologne, and comb out your hair and your ready to go take on the world! But suits don’t make you powerful, you make yourself powerful, from within. But I’ll always be a sucker for a great power suit as well though, let’s be real!

So I have a saying. It’s simple. “don’t tell me how to live my life”.
.
.
The thing is I know I make mistakes. I mean I’m a human. I’m flawed. Aren’t we all? But I love the women I’ve become and hopefully will continue to grow into but that didn’t happen by chance. It happened by falling flat on my face, getting up, dusting myself off and learning from those mistakes. It came from taking risks, being a unique individual in the face of disapproval and having integrity that fierce as f. This was my personal path and each of us has a path we want to be on and as we should. To me there is nothing like a human who doesn’t follow the pack but dances to the best of their own drum. .
This precious beautiful rollercoaster of a life we have is all we’ve got. So live the life you wanna live! Let your freak flag fly and by all means don’t ever let someone tell you how to live your life! It’s YOUR gem! 📷—> @michaelmoretti

“I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born within me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.”

This quote is my favorite set of words ever strung together. It has stood the test of time for me thru many years. It’s been written in every journal I’ve ever owned and every cell phone I’ve ever had. I refer to it often. It is my life’s motto. For me it is an anchor in a world of temptation. A reminder when I get off course. A push forward when I feel weak. It is the meaning of integrity to me and integrity to me is the core of us all. I refer to this quote and it reminds me why we chose to do what’s right in a time of temptation and boy let’s be honest their is a whole lot of temptation in life everywhere I look.
To me Integrity is the part of yourself that can either be the most beautiful part of you or the ugliest part of you. But ironically it is the part of you no one sees but you. This is why it is the core of who we are. That is why when you make the right decision it can hurt but ultimately it is like a growing pain making you feel stronger and wiser over time. Ultimately a choice made with integrity is a choice made with love. Love for yourself and love for others. Even if no ones else sees that choice but you. .
In the end, We are just simply the sum of all of our choices. What does integrity mean to you?

So here on social media I always try to be super real with you guys and then mix in a touch of positivity if I can. So I’m gonna be really real here first and not try to be the cool chick who’s life is always perfect because let’s be honest, no ones life is always perfect.
So here’s the deal. Last year two days before my birthday I got some really bad news about a friend and I spent my birthday really sad. I think it might have been one of the hardest days of 2017 for me. It’s life, shit happens, and sometimes that shit lands on your birthday. What can you do? Life goes on. 🤷‍♀️
So, fast forward to this year I’m on a beautiful yacht shooting with the amazing @michaelmoretti sailing along the Napoli coast line taking pics in a gown. I mean seriously?
Now, I am not saying my life is perfect. Oh dear lord, far from it. But this exact day last year I was a balling mess of tears and this year as you can see here I was not. If this shows anyone any “reality” it is that things change. So this birthday photo goes out to anyone who’s going thru something hard. I swear I’m living proof that it will pass and you will be somewhere else having fun in the sun again this time next year.

Today I rode motocycles thru the canyons with my buddies and I have to say for a few moments I slipped into pure bliss. I felt so present and so full of joy.
Today was an amazing day inwardly for me and I just wanted to share my little bit of peace with all of you. Because sometimes it’s literally just that simple. Wind on your face suns out and your flying down a canyon with your boys and you realize in this moment you spotted it.... you spotted a moment of pure “Bliss”. As I write this I can close my eyes and replay that moment today and appreciate it.
Have any of your spotted a moment of bliss lately? If so what were you doing?📷—> @forde_photo .

“To travel is to live”
By: Hans Christian Andersen .
I’m sorry Mr. Andersen but i disagree and here is why. So, to me traveling is such a strange thing. When I was young we didn’t have money to travel but both my parents were from other countries so I grew up knowing there was more to this world then the small town i was raised in. I also grew up dying to see and understand it all. I had a curiosity that was Ferocious about humans and I still do! This curiosity ate at me for years while I was broke and couldn’t afford plane tickets. But then once I started to travel I started to notice I was never really calm and content where I was. I was Always wanting to learn and see more humans, understand more religions, ceremonies, cathedral, museums, foods and hear different languages. Then one day it hit me, (I’ll never forget, I was in Thailand on the island of Koh Phi Phi) that I wasn’t living in the “present” moment therefore I wasn’t seeing that I was already in IT all on the earth living. I was so busy wanting more and to see more, so busy being inpatient that I hadn’t taken the time to just stop and be still. I hadn’t taken a breath. I hadn’t really dove in and rooted myself down into my existence. Like Hans Christian Andersen I also believed if I kept traveling I’d be “living”. Which is one side of the truth but it is also just as true to stay home and build a family or business and not travel. That is “living” too! Or to not explore but to enjoy where you are at this very moment.
I see so much travel on Instagram and I love it because it’s makes people so much more open minded and we are slowly become one human race inch by inch but I also wanna share a not-so-popular message that, NOT traveling is just as beautiful and just as much considered living as anything you do.
No matter how you cut it living is living. Cliffside’s are beautiful but raising children and sacrificing travel for them to be in the same school every year or building your dream business from the ground up is just as beautiful! I mean quiet literally If air is coming in and out of those lungs still, that means your still in the game and we must appreciate every second of it!

First off thank you to everyone for all my happy birthday wishes yesterday as I celebrated my birthday here in Hawaii yesterday and it’s always such an amazing feeling to know I’ve lived yet another year of life. The gratitude I feel for that is What I truly long for on a birthday. Another year of life to spread positivity and love (as cheesy as it sounds)
I look back at my 2018 and it was a bumpy year. Lots of ups and downs but all in all it strengthened me, tested my character and over all I hope to think its made me wiser and even more empathetic to the human condition of love.
I’m so grateful for years like this. The years where everything didn’t go perfectly because these are the years where you learn even more how to relate to other peoples challenges. I can’t express how much of a birthday present it was to sit in from of this massive waterfall here in Hawaii and contemplate my past years existence and how excited I am as I move forward Into another year of life on this perfect planet. I can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for me and all of you. Did you have a challenging 2018 or was it smooth sailing this year for you? Comment below 😊 .

So today I’m over in Hawaii shooting and It’s got me thinking a lot about confidence. About where we place it or where we feel it comes from. Where we feel our confidence is weak or strong. I’ve been shooting pictures all day and being in front of a camera can sometimes make you feel a bit uneasy, or maybe even insecure in some situations. So, in these times I like to remind myself where my worth comes from. It does NOT come from the outside of me it comes from my heart my mind. It’s sorta ironic that doing a photoshoot would remind me to think of this. But I feel like sometimes we all need reminding to look within to find our real beauty. The world and society pushes us to focus on the outside with fitness, fashion and beauty but in reality we exudes confidence and beauty from what’s within
