A boho bag is normally bigger in size and is also known for its crescent shape. Today, many women are using this type of bag because this bag has a long sling and you can just carry it on your shoulder or worn across your body as a body bag. This bag is very comfortable to use, because it helps to carry your belongings with ease wherever you go.
I posted the longest Instagram caption in history! Or at least the longest in my history. And because I'm still buzzing, I wanted to share it here too:
You guys, today I popped my pilot season cherry and it felt so good. It was fun, scary, exciting and fun again, all at the same time. As a kid I was obsessed with "Grease" and about a million other films and tv shows, yet it wasn't until my late 20s, that I decided to really be an actress. Before that, I was too afraid of taking the leap. Too afraid to put myself out there. But man, I'm happy I did.
There are so many highs and lows with this career but the highs make it all worth it. The ability to connect with someone and play in class, at an audition or on set is so freaking special, words can't describe it.
This post is for all the dreamers out there. If you love something…DO IT!!! But do it without focusing on results and instead just enjoy every moment of the process. I know one pilot audition doesn't make me Meryl Streep or Viola Davis but it does make me happy. Happy with the choice I've made and happy to be on this journey.

What are your dreams?
New York Fashion Week kicks off next Thursday and for the first time in 3 years, I will not be attending. February fashion week is the one time when being an actress and a style blogger can really conflict. It's a super busy time for auditions in LA, with pilot season and lots of commercials being made, so I need to stay put and be available. While I'm sure I'm going to have some major FOMO, I'm cool with my decision and just because I'm not at NYFW, doesn't mean I can't dress the part!
Who What Wear just launched an incredible collection that's available exclusively at Target. I was one of the lucky ones to get my hands on the goods first and let me tell you…it's fantastic! Amazing pieces featuring gorgeous palettes and prints, that come in sizes 2 through 26. So, in the spirit of fashion week, I styled my favorites from the collection to put together a look, that I think is totally NYFW worthy. Do you agree?
My first date with Damien was at a Mexican restaurant here in LA. Since that magical night, when we fell in love over chips and guac, Mexican restaurants have always been our favorite date-night spots. This Valentine's Day, I wanted to bring the fiesta to our home. As much as we love a night out, we love nothing more than staying in, especially on Valentine's Day when restaurants are over-crowded and not very intimate. Here's what I did to create our Valentine's Day Fiesta and tips for you to do the same:
- Dress nice but be comfy: Damien and I rarely dress up when we go out to eat, so I thought it would be fun to put on a LBD and some heels. This cocktail dress from Express has the perfect party vibe and with a fit and flare silhouette, it's also comfortable enough to wear at home. I paired it with these super cute, perfect for Valentine's Day heels, in red of course! Damien is wearing Express too and kept it classic with slim fit jeans, a crisp white dress shirt and baby blue blazer sans tie. Fun, festive and dressy without being stuffy.
- Bring lots of color to your tabletop: When I think of a fiesta, I think about bright, pretty colors and lots of it. I found this runner online and picked up some bright flowers and succulents as accents. I used our white dinnerware to balance out the decor.
- Play old records: We are both huge fans of music and there's nothing more romantic (& fun) than playing records at home and dancing around the house. Damien is a bit shy dancing in public, so this is the perfect way to get him to get down!
That's it! Music, decor and cute clothes (plus margaritas) are all you need for the perfect Valentine's Day Fiesta. Wishing you a lovely Valentine's Day and if you're single, have a V-Day fiesta with your girls!
