Last year, I worked on the SuicideGirls Blackheart Burlesque tour while they were going on a tour around America. This year, they came back to LA before kicking off their world tour! I still cannot believe how good they are! The show was a little longer, and definitely worth every penny!
This time around, we got a table above the stage! We had killer views of everything.
I got to hang out backstage for a few acts... Definitely the best place to see the show! ;)
The SuicideGirls Blackheart Burlesque tour is coming to Australia, and Canada this month! Make sure you get tickets, it is totally a w e s o m e.
South By South West might just be my favorite festival (sorry coachella) mostly because not only is it a rad music festival, it's also a film festival! On top of all of that... Austin has amazing food! If I'm not catching a show, or a screening, I'm going to be chowing down. It's not easy to pack for a festival in another city, here's what I'd bring to SXSW! (Click the product to see where it's from)
Wildfox Tee (or basically any oversized teeshirt) - I really like oversized, soft, casual tees. 90% of the shirts I own fit in to this category, actually.
Big Floppy Hat - These hats make me feel like an extra on American Horror Story Coven, and I love it.
Camera - I don't take DSLR's with me when I travel, mostly because they're too bulky.
Sunglasses - They say everything is bigger in texas.. I think that includes the sun, because my eyes can barely stay open in that bright tx light!
External iPhone Battery - I just learned today that Diane Von Furstenberg designed an external battery, and I ordered it immediately (I'm going through a leopard phase right now, so the fact that it was leopard really sold me on the case!)
Sneakers - HEELS SUCK TO WALK AROUND IN. I love heels, but I prefer a cute pair of sneakers to stilettos anyday!
Tote Bag - The Michael Kors tote is on my shopping list right now, it holds e v e r y t h i n g. For now, I use the juicy couture tote next to it, it fits a 17 inch computer, all my cords, and all the paper I apparently hoard. You're going to need a lot of space for all of the things people will be handing you (especially business cards!)
Leather Jacket - I can't pull off my "i'm a total bad ass" vibe without it. Also, it gets cold at night
Sunscreen - If there is one thing you learn from me in your lifetime, it should be USE SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY, even if it's not sunny and even if you don't think you'll need it.
Are you heading out to south by south west? what are you going to be bringing!?
I've done it. I've become one of those LA girls that drinks smoothies & green juice. I didn't want to become this way, it just happened. Although I still love my In-n-out animal style fries and the occasional double double protein style with grilled onions, smoothies have taken over my life (and grocery cart)
I've noticed since drinking these smoothies and juices daily, my skin, and nails are a lot healthier! Because of that, I'm going to continue to mix fruits and leafy greens daily.
This particular smoothie contains:
1 cup Coconut Water
1 handful of Kale
1 table spoon of Honey
1 handful of Raspberries
1 (small) Banana
Do you have any smoothie recipes? This LA girl needs to know!
