Hey sugar loves! I hope all of you are smiling and enjoying today. SO much has been going on the past month and I had to update you with the latest. I shot an episode of 30 ROCK with Sherri Shepherd, Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey. It was SUCH an amazing experience to watch the pros in action. I learned a lot being on set with the all-star cast. I did a super funny scene with Sherri but unfortunately it got cut. The experience was awesome and I'm so glad I get to say I was a part of it. I also got to check out the off-Broadway show Fuerza Bruta (which I had seen twice before) with Usher! (shout-out to my girl Cat Peoples for the hook-up!) It was a great way to promote his new album and he did a great job!! It's hard to explain his character in the show but lets just say it invloves lots of running, flying and rain. Ya, I know.
I've also been busy with photoshoots and have a few new fun things to show you this summer! I recently got back from Atlanta and excited to share the editorial I shot which comes out in August. I've been meeting and working with such amazing people that I admire in the industry and feel super blessed to be having all this fun.
And p.s. I had the opportunity to go to my first ever basketball game a week or so ago and it just so happened to be a playoffs game between the Miami Heat and the NY Knicks. I also took a pretty cool shot of Lebron himself :) Words can't express how cool it was! And, you know, being that close to the basketball players was totes fine with me ;) p.p.s. Kanye West and I may or may not have locked eyes a few times but that's a different story for a different day ;)
A very special shout-out to everyone in Germany who got to watch BIG SEXY for the first time. I'm getting lots of fan mail and I so appreciate the support!
I feel like sometimes my life is a movie and I'm so enjoying the ride. I wanted to share a few snapshots from the past month including the game, behind-the-scenes shots of my shoots, people I've met, 30 ROCK, my trip to Atlanta and the collage from PLUS Model Magazine that my mom and I are in.
Love you boos. Take good care of you.
I wanted to take a second to recognize my dear friend, mentor, teammate, industry icon and pioneer Mia Amber Davis who we lost a year ago today. Her beauty, love and kindness shines bright everyday and everything I do in my career is done with her in mind. You can see a lovely tribute from PLUS Model Magazine for our friend here.
Missing you Mia.
