I left Toronto November 11th, and headed to Austin, TX to hang out with my friend Nick for a few days. We ate delish vegan food, went hiking, attempted to shop (I'm the worst shopper in life), and had a good hangout. Nick ensured that I tried my first Daiya vegan cheese pizza! Best shit, ever. This cheese needs to be had by all vegans, just sayin'. I have actually found it at the Whole Foods in Beverly Hills and that means some serious cheese hoarding needs to happen asap. Anywho, Austin ruled, I kind of miss it and would definitely check it out again. Here's a pic of the epic breakfast we made:
I arrived in LA on Friday evening, my hilariously heavy bags both broke at the same time and it was awesome!! I ended up staying at the Westin for two nights so I could hang out with my friend Emily for the weekend. I threw myself together when I got to the hotel and Emily, Alex and I headed to Royal T Cafe for the Bats and Cats Hello Kitty Masquerade. I didn't look goth, but it was fun and the venue was amazing and decked out in everything Hello Kitty!! SO CUTE. It was hard not to squeel at everything and gush over the pink kitty junk everywhere. These were my fave Hello Kitty inspired paintings:
Monday involved lots of sleeping, vegging out and preparing for the following day! Tuesday was my first photo shoot in LA. I shot with Ama Lea and our model was Lauren WK. She looked incredible in both sets I made and I can't wait to see the photos. I'll make sure to post them as they are received. Ama and Lauren are both amazing to work with, I would really love to collaborate again.
Tomorrow is my second photo shoot and it will be amaaaaazing! I am shooting with Clayton Addison and the models are Sara Eudy, Krystyn Lea and Drew Linden. Keep ya posted with pics and updates!
