Healthy Fuel – My Top Nutritious Snacks


After eight years in New York City as a model, I have learned a thing or two about nutrition. While I used to love unhealthy foods and thought that dieting meant restricting what I ate, I have realized that eating foods that are good for me makes me feel fuller, more satisfied, healthier, and more energized among so many other things!

I wish I had learned earlier in my life that healthy eating is a lifestyle choice that encompasses so much more than losing weight. I love being active and working out, challenging my brain through my schoolwork, writing, and internships, and running all over the city to castings, fittings, and jobs. I have to take care of myself in order for me to be on top of my game and feel my best.

A huge part of eating healthy, for me at least, comes down to always having a good option to choose when hunger strikes. That is why I like to pack lots of healthy snacks with me when I leave my apartment for the day. Here are a few of my faves.

Model Nude – The Perfect Neutral Nail


You should see my nail polish collection. It is truly impressive, but perhaps not in the way that you’re thinking. If you’re imagining vampy reds, sparkly metallics, and pretty pastels like the blue in this photo you would be very wrong.

Over the past eight years as a model, I have been on the search for the perfect nude nail polish. Models are typically only supposed to wear nude (and very light pink) polish unless specifically requested otherwise, so my friends and I have tried just about every shade out there in our quest for the ultimate color.

It’s a tricky business, because every shade looks slightly different depending on your skin tone, so a shade that looked perfect on a friend might not do the trick for you. In addition, I like to strike the perfect balance between sheer and opaque shades.

I have grown to love a nude nail, however. It always looks chic and polished, and goes with absolutely any outfit. Here are some of my favorites over the years.

In-Flight Must-Haves


Have ticket, will travel!

I’m off again, back to Europe for the remainder of the summer. After doing much traveling over the years, and dealing with my fair share of long-haul flights, I thought I’d share with you a few of my tricks for staying fresh and arriving refreshed after those international journeys.

What’s In My Bag This Summer


Hello lovelies!

I’m so glad to be back to blogging after an intense final two weeks of my summer university course. Now I have an entire month of relaxation before the fall semester (and ensuing craziness) begins again.

I am shooting for a few jobs in NYC this week before I jet back to Europe for the remainder of the summer, so I thought it was the perfect time to share with you what I’ve been carrying around with me all summer long!
