Anonymous asked: Do you wear foundation at all? I think I'm your skin tone and I can't find anything that works.

It took me forever too! I use Luminous by Armani foundation. I love it. Very lightweight. 

Anonymous asked: How would you describe your self— jutnblog

A walking paradox, an oxymoron of sort. I can’t describe myself because I seriously confuse myself daily. I’m quite insane but my intentions are always pure. Thats all I know. :) 

Anonymous asked: Do you find it harder or limiting to date outside of your race because of your own race and skin color? or do you not even think about it? i mean offense, im just curious

lol… No umbrage taken. I addressed this in a previous question by a follower. I don’t see color. Never have. Never will. I date outside my race because its my comfort zone. I don’t think its limiting.. I like what I like. I know it sounds ignorant especially with the race tension going on right now but I’ll like to believe most people do not care about color or race in this day and age. I can say that white guys are afraid to approach me.. They sort of just stare, so usually I have to approach them and start the conversation. But other than that dating is the same all across. There are gentlemen or asshole in every race, you have to set your standards and know how to pick them. AGAIN, disclaimer: Please don’t ask me for dating advice. I’ve never been in love.. I’m an expert in getting my heart broken! Anyways, Please feel free to come off anon.

Saw this house that looks like a post card from Santorini Greece here in Los Angeles.. It was huge to say the least. I imagined living in it for a second and then I came back to reality and took a picture in front of the door.. I love driving around in LA and just looking at beautiful architecture. (at My future house on Los Feliz Blvd)

Anonymous asked: Whats been your experience with interracial dating in LA? Do you tend to date african/black men, or have you dated outside your race?

Dating in LA is just awful period! With that said there isn’t anything particularly different with interracial dating here as oppose to anywhere else. I think almost every couple I see is interracial. I have a very specific type and I’ve only dated interracially since I moved here.  So yes I date outside my race. I mean you meet few guys that just want to “experiment” but I think if you are vigilant enough, you can see that right in the beginning. I think I’m the worst person to give dating advice. I’m awkward when it comes to dating.. lol.

Upclose & Personal

 I know, I know.. I have never done anything like this before. Lately, I’m in love with black and white shoots. The amazing Dan (Best photographer ever, seriously he is amazing) and I decided to shoot something fun in lieu of our usual lifestyle/outfit shoots. I wanted to go for a “I borrowed my boyfriend T shirt look”. I’m wearing an American Apparel oxford shirt and Victoria Secret underwear. Like any other girl, I battle with loving my body. One moment I feel too skinny, the next too fat. Especially this year.. it seemed I was always complaining about this or that. So I started working out more (Hiking to be precise). Its quite cathartic. I’m Learning to love my body because it is a temple. I’m learning to fuel it, nourish it, respect it and appreciate it. I woke up that particular morning with so much confidence and zest, looked in the mirror and said “YAASSS, my body is to die for”. I had so much fun on set. Hope you guys enjoy the photos. Remember, ”It doesn’t matter if it’s a relationship, a lifestyle, or a job. If it doesn’t make you happy let it go.”
