My Favorite Crop Top!!

HELLO EVERYONE=)

Well today is Tuesday and I AM TIRED. LOL This weekend my in laws moved in and so we were busy all weekend and honestly… even though I didn’t really help with the move, I was preoccupied with getting everything ready for The Gang... so I was working on that all weekend!!! Anyways, I probably already told you all that in yesterdays post….haha

Yesterday was crazy and I literally didn’t stop running around the entire day! I was actually supposed to upload my first #makeithappenmay video but I didn’t get a chance to do that because of all the chaos! I was with Shelby and Monica all day (Mondays are our JLT meeting days) and we were planning some super exciting stuff for JLT! It's gonna be fun to share! which BTW… We are rolling out with a scripted week on JLT next week and IM SO SO EXCITED! I havent done a full on project like that on youtube… like ever I think..? So that's pretty dope… haha We ended our day at an Angels/ Mariners baseball game and I had a blast being with the girls. =)

That being said, I’m actually feeling pretty drained today and it's one of those days where I’d be pleased to lay in my bed and watch Netflix all day! hahha #notmakingithappen LOL

I also uploaded a collab with my friend Fleur! So even though its not a #makeithappenmay video, its still a fun video.. and kinda a throw back to when I used to make more sit down, beauty type videos…. I always have fun doing those because even though I don’t consider myself a beauty guru.. I definitely love me some beauty products! haha

On another note, my favorite part of the outfit I’m posting today is the top! I’m obsessed with this high neckline cut! So cute!!!  I will have all the pieces linked below as usual!

So ya, I guess thats it! Be sure to check out The Gang! We’re posting daily on there for #makeithappenmay and submit your work for consideration! I can't wait to see all your work!

I LOVE YOU GUYS!… and I hope I wake up soon… hahaha =)

The Gang Magazine Day 1!!! It's Hereeee!

Hey guys! So today is Monday, but it's not just any Monday! I am so excited because today is the official launch of TheGangMagazine.com. If you don't know what The Gang is you can watch my last favorites video to get more details. But the gist of what's going on over there is that I have decided to make a website where  when I do themed videos on my main channel, we can all head over there to talk about it. =) I'm having people submit artwork, videos, blog posts, etc., and they will all be centered around the theme. So, the theme for this month on my channel and The Gang is Make It Happen May, and the reason I decided to roll out with that theme is because I’m trying to make the gang happen. LOL. it’s gonna take a lot of work, and a lot of focus/support, but you guys are always so supportive of me, and I'm just really excited for the month... but also really nervous. So yeah, honestly that's what is taking up most of my brain space today-- I can't really think of anything else. Check out the site! I am SO excited!

Today I decided to post my workout outfit because I thought it was super appropriate for the first day of #MakeItHappenMay. I love wearing cute workout outfits when I'm working out because it helps me to feel inspired/excited to get up and get moving! BTW--These headphones are my absolute favorite! They are Hot pink and wireless which is just amazing! if you haven't checked them out I have them linked below.

I not only want to know what you guys are doing for #MakeItHappenMay, but also I want to know are any of you guys physically active? what inspires you to get moving? Leave me a comment below letting me know!  I will see you guys all over the internet! Adios Amigos!

Holy Crap My Neck!!


    Hey guys!!! Well today kinda started off annoying I can't lie.... I woke up so exhausted and felt like I could've slept all day!!!! But I dragged my butt out of bed to do my tone it up workout! I actually felt pretty proud of myself for getting up to workout cuz I did NOT feel like it. Lol well I started warming up and was jogging when I turned to look at dan in the kitchen and all the sudden I had the sharpest pain shooting from my shoulder up my neck! Well it's been all day and it's not getting any better! Good thing I'm going to the chiropractor tomorrow! But ya- I've felt like crap today but I'm happy I still got a lot done! I cleaned up around the house finally, went grocery shopping (btw I filmed a haul and it will be up tonight on the phillippis:) and we finallyyyy set up my office upstairs! It's a little janky right now but once we finish in the next few days I'll show you guys a bunch of pictures! 

 

I'm pretty excited btw because tonight dan and I are going to make pasta and salad (and the dressing is going to be homemade from this new specialty oil and vinegar we just got!) anyways- were going to be using black bean noodles! They're high in protein and fiber and I can't wait to find out if they're any good! Ok I guess that's all. In closing HOW CUTE ARE THESE PICTURES OF ZOE?!?! LOL people always ask to see all of Zoe's little outfits so I decided to show you guys my favorite...is this lame? Enjoy! LOL


Better Late Than Never!

Hey guys!!! So I'm posting a little bit later in the day, but today has been crazy! I'm actually dictating this post on Siri while driving in traffic in LA LOL First off I woke up today and my ankle was in severe pain so unfortunately I couldn't fit in my Tone It Up work out...however, i'm going to try and fit my workout in tomorrow morning :-) To those of you that didn't know I slammed my ankle in my car door yesterday and I've been hobbling around for the last 15 hours!:( so that sucks. Lol but I got a lot of stuff done this morning from the comfort of my own bed so that's great! Hahahaha well, those of you who read my blog post yesterday may be wondering how my speech went at my brothers school...! Well if you're asking my opinion I would say that I bombed it. Hahaha I took a bunch of notes for the speech, but when I got on stage and I completely forgot to even look at my notes I decided to "wing it"....#Notagoodchoice LOL anyways I did my best and my parents ended up saying that I was "inspirational" so that's good. Honestly on the drive over I wasn't feeling like myself due to slamming my ankle in the door...oh yeah and dropping my laptop on the cement. But I did a little prayer in the car and all I asked was that I could be inspirational even if to just one person....so if my parents were right then that makes me happy :-) anyways- tomorrow is our big JLT shoot and I'm nervous...also excited. Working with Shelby and Monica on things always makes me feel calmer...like between the 3 of us we will get a project done! Hahaha Maddy is in town for the shoot and I met her today in person for the first time! WHAT a doll! I love her even more! Haha but YA- I guess that's it! Like I said, I'm dictating in traffic and I should probably go...plus I need to listen to more Serial. LOL all outfit details will be below as usual and I will see you guys all over the Internet all weekend and back here on Monday!:)





A Chill Work Day.

Hiiiii! So today I don't have much to say...? It's been a pretty chill day that's consisted of sleeping in till 8:00, doing my toneitup coconut abs and booty workout, showering, finally unpacking from coachella, having a call with a brand for a sponsorship were doing on JLT and now I'm writing this post:) hahah (oh and I listened to the Serial podcast while unpacking...shout out to Amy Thompson for the rec!) I'm actually about to get ready and go meet Shayna for lunch, then I'm editing videos for the rest of the afternoon! AFTER that though I'm pretty excited because I'm giving the key note speech (oooohhhhh) at my brothers school! Haha wish me luck! I'm going to talk about my highly unorthodox education, my also highly unorthodox job and the power in finding what you love to do (however out of the box it may be!) and making it into a job/career! Now between you and me I haven't actually written the speech yet...so I actually gotta run and do that... But YA. Hahah I'm excited! Also I've been enjoying these daily check ins! They've been fun and also helped me be more reflective about my day! Leave a comment below telling me what your day has been like! Actually, why don't you guys do that on all my posts moving forward? I think it's cool to kind of diary what's up and see what other people's days are like! Idk I'm nosy like that. Hahaha




Back To Reality!

Hey guys!

so today it is back to reality for me…out of work-cation and back to the real world. Now while some of you may be like “shut up. your entire life is a work-cation.” (and you’re kind of right by saying that… haha) It really isn’t like it seems. This whole morning I’ve been running around like a maniac trying to get some final shots for a video, editing, working on some contracts, getting in my morning booty call with Tone It Up and now I’m running out the door to go hang and film with Fleur and Becky who are in town from England!=D  I HAVE TO GO MAKE TEA FIRST THO. LOL

 

Anyways, todays outfit is one of my favorites from the last week or so because its so casual and clearly if I felt good enough to do a jumping shot in the post then you know I loved it because grandma doesn’t just jump for nothing… hahaha

 

I love you all and I will see you soon!

 

PS- I uploaded a "what's in my bag" video today!=) It's linked below!



Leaving The Desert

Hey guys!!! It's Tuesday and I'm currently sitting with Carly and Michael driving home from Indio! (She's driving I'm not. Hahaha) I don't have much to update between yesterday and today other than the fact that I sat up till like 1am working on my coachella video and I literally can't WAIT to show you guys! I developed such a clear vision for the video on Sunday at coachella and I got super into it last night---I even started remixing and editing songs like I used to back in the day when I was editing music! 

 

ALSO- tbh I was up late because we're working on wrapping up the script for the JLT shoot this weekend! We're shooting all day Saturday and Sunday and then I'm filming a collab with Maddy on Monday while she's out here!:D so YA...needless to say, we gotta wrap up this script! Haha 

 

OH!!! Alsoooo I decided today that as part of #makeithappenmay I'm producing another music video!!! I officially booked studio time today before I left Indio and I'm literally soooo excited! Carly pumped me up this weekend and really encouraged me to do more because it's such a passion of mine so I decided to just do it! 

 

So YA that's it! Enjoy my comfy outfit- the links will be below as usual and I love you guys:) 

 

PS- I'm really enjoying writing daily updates! I hope you guys are liking these..? I feel like I'm kinda writing a diary! Haha

 



Still In Indio!!

Hey guysssss! So I'm literally writing this from underneath a cabana in Indio California!!! 💁 I am so relaxed and happy today and I officially love work-cations (which is what I've officially dubbed this) because they are amazing. Hahah if you are unaware of what a work-cation is because you do not work in the digital community--- let me enlighten you. 

 

Work-cation: 

Deciding to do your random array of work in a vacation style setting. IE- reply to emails, tweets, Facebook comments, take instagram pictures, write a blog post, have calls with brands and brainstorm new ideas... All while floating on a pool toy. Hahahah 

 

So YA. Needless to say...I'm happy. Oh! You're probably wondering how Coachella went...I will be filling you all in very shorty because I took some pictures and made an epic video I'll be uploading this week where I'll get real about my experience here...😬 hahaha no but cliff notes version... It was amazing! 

 

Anyways, on to todays outfit! I bought this top when I was out with Primrosemakeup one day at Topshop! I loveeee it but I had a hard time figuring out what to wear with it... So this is what I did! Thoughts? Lol 

 

Anyways, leave a comment so I have something else "to do" on my work-cation! Hahaha love you all! See you here tomorrow:)



Your Basic White Girl.

HEY GUYS! HAPPY FRIDAY! Wellllll today is day 1 at Coachella for me! Yesterdays car ride down was epic to say the least….hahaha it took us almost 5 hours to get from LA to Indio but the other party of people who left LA HOURS after us got here BEFORE us! hahha I guess we took one too many potty breaks, played too many rounds of “spot the taco bell” and ate our Panera Bread too slowly… haha we had fun=) Anyways, I didn't go to sleep until 2 last night but now I’m up at 8am and can't sleep…. I think I’m going to regret this later but A- I wanted to write this post…B- I want to edit & C- I need to get in my morning booty call! hahaha Anyways, I’m going to vlog all weekend, so be on the lookout for that next week! (and I’m going to do a through my eyes if I can find a good song for it. hahaha) Anyways anyways… heres todays outfit! I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS TOP. IT MAKES ME HAPPY IN SO MANY WAYS. Its comfy, its pinker than pink, the Barbie logo SMELLS GOOD, and I’m obsessed with the back. I love me some comfy cute and I think this embodies comfy cute. LOL THANKS AMANDA for the amazing photos as usual! Well.. I don’t post on here over the weekend so I will see you guys on Monday! Wish me luck at Coachella this weekend!!! Ah! PS- I’ll be updating my snapchat all weekend LOVE YOU GUYS!


Off To Coachella!!

HELLOOOOO EVERYONE! Today has been exciting! I got up at 6:30 which is early for me, but Dan was at work at5:00 today... so its not as hard to get up in the morning when he’s gone cuz there is no one in bed to cuddle with! …See my new morning routine for details… HAHA Speaking of which, I uploaded a new video today if you didn’t know! It’s my “Spring Morning Routine!” yay! Anyways, I’ve been running around frantically all day and I cant believe the day is already almost half way over! Its time for me to turbo pack for coachella, rush to Carly’s and then take the trip out! I haven’t done a girls trip in forever and while I will most definitely miss Dan, I am pretty excited to have some girl time=) I’ll be staying with Carly and then also seeing Fleur, Tati and Becky this weekend as well! (check them out if you don’t know who they are.. they are all amazing!) So ya… theres not much to say about the outfit except Shayna helped me put this look together, I feel like a rockstar in it and ya… that is it. LOL All items will be linked below as usual! I LOVE YOU GUYS AND I HOPE YOURE HAVING AN AMAZING WEEK!=)


Today's Video:


Back In Black!!

HEY GUYS!

 

Happy wednesday! How is everyone doing today? Side note, I missed my booty call this morning for the toneItUp #bikiniseries today BUT I’m planning on getting my workout in this afternoon=) I didn’t want to mess up my hair this morning because I’m going on a filming spree today! Thats legit right?! haha

 

I don’t really have much see to say today other than now is my OOTD! HAHA As usual I will have the pieces linked down below… and I will see you guys tomorrow with a new video AND a new blog post!!!=D I love you all and I’ll see you soon! PS- I read all my blog comments so if you want to leave a comment feel free to do so;) lol

Top Knot LYFE


YO YO YO everyone. Day 2 on my blog and I’m rolling out with a new look for me…. a top knot bun thing… haha I have never done this hairstyle before but Amanda and Shayna convinced me it was adorable and I’m so glad they did because I love how my hair turned out! A couple quick outfit thoughts:

 

A- I LOVE THIS NECKLACE! It feels bohemian and classic at the same time!

B- I’m now obsessed with my new Wildfox tank!

C- I also love my new Vans but I kinda feel like a space girl in them… anyone else? no? lol

 

Alright guys, side note- I feel like crap today… I woke up and started my period which is aways fun times.. not. LOL This reminded me though- I really wanna do a period video soon! I feel like period stuff is still seen as like awkward or gross to talk about, but its something half the population has to deal with monthly! I REALLY DISLIKE PERIODS. Anyways, if you want me to make a video about what I do to help my PMS (including a yoga move I discovered last night) let me know=)

 

I love you guys and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Bitchezz I'm Back!!

Guyssss!!! Today is an exciting day! Not only is today Monday---and side note for the first time in a long time I don't have a case of the Mondays (hallelujah!!!)... It may be because I'm doing the ToneItUp bikini series...? I'm pretty pumped about that... Ahh! I'm getting sidetracked! Let's back up! GUYS! Today is an exciting day because today is the first day that I am back to posting on my personal blog! WOO HOO!!! To be honest, my dreams and ideas are often bigger and more time consuming than I have hours in the day if that makes sense...? So I often start and stop projects! Haha Plus with all the changes life has been throwing at me (moving twice in the last few months, the relaunch of JLT, and the upcoming launch of TheGang...& that's just the tip of the iceberg! Ah) things sometimes get crazy and like I mentioned, I drop the ball! That being said my personal blog is back up and I'm pretty excited and feeling confident about it! I'm officially working with an amazing photographer who's also been a good friend of mine for a log time (and is my sisters sister in law!) she is not only so talented but also has the most beautiful story, family and way of communicating...so if you've never checked out Amanda through my Instagram posts, you're missing out and you have to check her out! I'm going to be posting all kinds of stuff on here but it's mostly going to be outfits and then all of my favorite stuff! Alsoooo at the bottom of each post we're gunna link the outfit pieces so if you wanna check them out you can:) Also, shout out to my beautiful sister and fellow blogger Shayna for helping me make my room a mess while pulling outfits:) it was a good time;) so ya! A lot of exciting stuff is gunna roll out the next few months and I will definitely be sharing with you guys! I love you all (even though I haven't met most of you haha) and with out further ado... Here's my first new outfit on the blog!:)

My Fitness Routine

Hey everyone!First Point... quite a few  of you asked about my plastic surgery and said that you didn't understand how I could "preach self acceptance and love" yet have a surgery on my body to change my appearance.... I can understand the confusion and this is what I'm going to say. I don't regret getting the surgery but I wouldn't sit here and say that having it has made my life so much better or more fulfilling. It's its something I wanted...As far as my hip where I got the liposuction to even out my hips--- that has been pretty awesome to have changed. It didn't give me perfect hips, in the sense of it fully evening out the shape---but it made wearing clothing & clothing shopping so much easier because my legs are even now. as far as my boobs- unfortunately I don't have a deep philosophical answer for that either. Haha I wanted boobs so I bought them.

My Eating Disorder

Well hello again everyone!

So for today's post I am going to talk about something that has been highly requested  but  I've never blatantly addressed or made a sole video or post about...

Now two things I have to address before I start---first off, I know this weeks topics have kinda been Debbie downer & they're not all going to be like that! Haha I'm really trying to build this series in a way that's not only a conversation between me and you but also in a way that I feel truly addresses the topic of happiness hollistically... And in my opinion, happiness holds the hand of sadness.

Lol. Let's hop in!

Dear 2014... YOU SUCKED.

My my my what a crazy year you have been. It's hard to even know where to begin because you were honestly a roller coaster year. But  Im not trying to be mean or anything because when I say roller coaster, I mean it in every sense of the word. Yes, you were a hard, difficult year filled with more tears than I care to shed but you were also a beautiful, life changing year full of lessons and some happy tears.
