I’m back to blogging and back to New York! It feels so good to be back. L.A. was an amazing experience but I am glad it is over. I am a New York City girl and although, I miss the nice weather now that I am back, I am happy to to be seating here typing on my computer once again with new ambitions and new goals. So I have a lot to say to catch you up such as how my career has been going. I must say the movie went extremely well. My life has changed now completely since I am being noticed more on the street and I have now got a certain status in Hollywood but nothing’s too outrageous. Don’t go searching for my name on IMDB or think I’m someone I am not. I like being somewhat anonymous so I have made it so most people won’t be able to find out who I am. It’s really not that important. I have nothing to say on this blog that relates to my work besides my modeling career and maybe friends and boyfriends as well. My modeling career has come to a stop. I still have done spreads in magazines but as an actress not a model. I love modeling with the glamour and clothes but my true passion is acting which I have been blessed to persue. Now that I am back in New York though I think I am going to continue auditions for new movies but take it slow and enjoy life. I have accomplished so much in my life that now is a better chance than any to stop for a minute. I can back to New York because I couldn’t resist it. I was done with the movie – done with LA – and I knew that I could continue doing just what I was doing but instead around family and friends and my true love, NY.
Boys Boys Boys. Mr. right has turned out to be Mr. wrong. Or more like Mr. wrong timing. Long-distances barely work out and I wasn’t going to try it with him. So in LA I dated around but nothing serious enough to continue on to NY. So here I am single and on the Upper East Side now. I have moved from fashionable Downtown to uptight Uptown but I am liking it so far. It is quieter and I love being right near Central Park. I have been taking walks almost everyday in the park, sometimes lasting for hours. I am still best friends with “Charlotte,” “Miranda,” and “Samantha.” “Miranda” is now married to the personal assistant and “Samantha” has gone back to her distructive ways of sleeping with rockstars and bartenders. “Charlotte” is doing great and can be followed on her own blog called New Yorke Cherie. “Samantha” and I have become better friends sicne her breakup with her boyfriend because he was too demanding for her and changed her. She’s back to her old ways but is more matured now. I love being able to just drop by when I need my friends instead of setting up Skype times on a weekly basis.
There’s nothing more to say except I am so excited to be back and can’t wait for this summer. Besides the occasional photoshoot or audition I will be blogging so get ready for some intense dedication! Thanks for checking back in and I will write more when I get back from “Miranda’s” Hampton house on wednesday.

I am totally into Buddhist ways of life and doctrines like zen and feng shui and karma. Mostly karma though because although I have had my fair share of feng shui panic attacks and have signed up for mediation classes to increase my zen, the idea of karma makes so much sense to me. It’s completely a fair way to look at things. Except for when you give your aunt a Missoni throw pillow and then in return she gives you a ten dollar iTunes giftcard, usually when I do something nice for someone it is returned.
My friend ‘Miranda'(as most of you know because of an article she wrote on this blog) is a interior designer and sometimes exterior. She needed me to tag along and go to some new antique stores that she had heard about. I really did not want to go because I have barely any money left in my account and I am thinking about cheaking myself in a rehab for a substance abuse problem of mine. That is of clothing. I have bought more than three thousand dollars of clothing in the last three days. Not good. Anyway, I ended up going with her and I ran into another great friend and we ended up having an amazing time and not only that, I found a priceless vintage wedding ring on a necklace for only twenty dollars! It’s gorgeous. Perfectly cut and everything and the band is actually the most beautiful band I have ever seen. So there you go karma lives on daily!
Usually when I do something selfless I end up getting something back wheither that is just having fun or finding a great deal. Next week I am taking in a roommate because my good friend broke up with ehr boyfriend and her place is also his place sine they rent it together. He said he’s keeping it and now she has to find a place. I hate when that happens, it’s like don’t these girls have any say too? Anyway I am so happy to be taking her in but I am also hoping this will increase my karma.
It’s time for us all to say goodbye to 2008 and hello to 2009. I’m excited for what 2009 will bring. With more modeling on its way, a great boyfriend, and a new acting agency to top it all off, I think this year will be a good one. What is everyone’s New Year Resolutions? I have three: to put work as a first priority, get into shape, and remember to spend time with the family. It’s funny because last year my New Year Resolutions were exactly the same except I needed to spend less time with family and more with friends. Enough about me, I wanted to make a post dedicated to the great 2008 (Sorry, I know that was beyond cheesey!)
2008 was a year of surprises. Britney had everyone watching as she plumitted to the bottom but now is making it higher than she ever was. The most amazing special of 2008 I have to say goes to Britney’s documentary For the Record. People.com takes a quote from Britney that amost made me cry when I saw her. I’m so proud of her and I hope she continues her exciting climb to the top into the New Year. I’m excited to be seeing her perform in New York in 2009!
Another surprise that doesn’t have a happy ending is the story of the tragic ending to one of the most talented actors ever (and a total heart throb), Heath Ledger. With a rumored and well-deserved Oscar nomination coming up in the New Year, we all can’t get Heath out of our thoughts.
2008 was a year of matrimony and these marriages also were full of surprises. Beyoncé, the self-sufficient ‘Single Lady’, finally married Jay-Z after years of dating. On the contrary, Mariah Carey married Nick Canon after two months of dating which was completely a surprise but what’s more of a surprise is that they are going into 2009 without a divorce. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz also tied the knot in a rock and roll sort of way and the suprising part of this marriage is that this preacher’s daughter devliered her baby in the same year, making this one of the busiest years for Ashlee since she lipsynced her way to the D list. The last surpising marriage of 2008 was Ellen and Porshia’s, which was totally cute but completely surprising given the fact that two women were able to get married in the state of California. They aren’t the only two women in a romance causing a stir in 2008. Lindsay Lohan and her DJ Sam Ronson have also committed to a relationship.
Hope you liked this recap of 2008 and to finish this post of here are some fashionable celebrities in 2008:

In the most recent poll, most people asked for a update in my relationship with Mr. Right. As Carrie said that her relationship with Mr. Big was ‘bigger than big’, my relationship is now more right than right. Mr. Right does everything right but he isn’t a total gentlemen either. I hate when guys do everything for you and treat you like a princess. I mean I love it every once in a while but I couldn’t be in a relationship with someone like that. I like the bad boys. Mr. Right isn’t a bad boy though; he is just the opposite but he still gets on my nerves some times and ignores me sometimes which in a really odd way makes me like him more. Am I alone on this?
Anyway, my relationship with him has been everything I wanted. Our few bumps in the road have just made everything between us better. We are planning on spending Christmas seperated because I am not at all about to introduce a boy to the family but we are having a Christmas Eve lunch which will be nice. I always find it so much easier to shop for men than girls. For guys, just go to an electronic store or a sports store and get something you know he’ll like but with girls it has to get personal.
Mr. Right is possibly the greatest boyfriend I’ve ever had but really how could I compare them all since they are all so different. I don’t think I have a type when it comes to guys I actually date but the guys I lust over are always tall, dark, and handsome and usually in a band 😛
Have a great Christmas and if any of you need help for a Christmas gift, comment and I promise to respond with an idea! xoxo – A Vogue Idea
My best friend Zoe aka “Charlotte” wrote a post on her blog, New Yorke Cherie, about high school which totally inspired me to write another post about my high school experience. Zoe has been my best friend since eighth grade, along with some other close friends I kept in contact with. I’ve already talked about my past boyfriends but what I haven’t spent too much time on was my friends, our parties, and school, which of course are topics that should be discussed. My parents were always really harsh. I was grounded almost every month when I was slacking a bit but it ended up in my favor when I went to my dream school. They would ground me for anything below an A on a report card, any night I satyed out later than curfew, and anytime I acted in any way rude to them.
My friend’s parents were a whole different story. All of them didn’t care if they stayed out until three in the morning and some won’t even care if we drank. Of course I managed to make sure I slept over at their houses every Saturday night instead of going back home. For the most part, my friends were all crazy and fun but in the end great friends. The cliques at my school were very defined but there wasn’t really a popular group. There were just many cliques. The nerdy smart kids, the pot heads, the sluts, and then my group which kind of was in the middle of it all. There were many girls in our ‘clique’ but of course I had the ones I was closest too, like “Charlotte” and two others.
The parties were insane. We would do things I still consider pretty crazy in my twenties. We always knew someone who knew someone who got us into all the award show after-parties, club openings, celebrity parties, and benefits. I personally think that this sort of life worked out completely well for me. I didn’t end up with any kind of disorders, although many of my friends did, and I didn’t end up spoiled. I am so thankful to have lived in New York and had the oppertunities I have had. My dad came from a lower class family and had to work his way up and that really gave me, personally, a great deal of aspiration within myself. The school was the most important and then came the parties and you have never seen a party until you see a New York City penthouse party. These parties consisted of not only music, booze, and boys, but the hottest djs, the most gorgeous outfits, that by the end of the night, would be ruined, and after-parties in Union Square or Central Park.
Well I admit it was one hectic life but atleast I turned out okay… I guess. 😀
In Sex and the City, the girls barely fight so what I’m about to say to so un-Sex and the City that is scares me. I am in a herted arguement, alright a fight, with “Samantha.” It started because of her man because as we all know , men start all fights. But as we also know, men should neevr come bewteen a friendship, and it didn’t. What came between Samantha and my relationship is her, in my opinion of course. So let me start from the beginning to help explain our situation better. We (meaning “Miranda”, “Charlotte”, and I) had all planned a big party for “Samantha” and we invited over a hundred people over to “Miranda”‘s hosue, since her’s is the biggest. We had put a lot of money and effort into this and then “Samantha” told us that she couldn’t come to her party anymore because her boyfriend, whose an executive for the Super Bowl advertisment and such. I mean she totally blew off this huge party for him. At that point, I admit I was pissed but it didn’t seem like anyone else was since they were so happy she had finally settled down with someone even though he is twenty years older than her. When she got back she was a different person to me. She was trying so hard to fit this mold that she thought was how a girl in love should act but it was no longer her. So when I approched her to tell her this, she freaked.
She’s become a different person to me and “Charlotte” and “Miranda” would agree. Another reason our relationship is being stressed is that I’m becoming closer to my friend that I met through acting and she knows “Samantha” from when she was doing advertising as well as commericals. My friend is the type that is only can really be described as she is really sweet, outgoing and hilarious, but if she doesn’t like you, you live in hell. She’s like Regina George from Mean Girls or the Molly Ringwald character, from The Breakfast Club or Cher in Clueless. A total bitch when she wants to be. And because “Samantha” was acting like a nuisance that day and a poser, she was a bitch to “Samantha”, of course only after “Samantha” had paid her for the commerical. So, “Samantha” has become ever intimidated by my friend and my friend has, in turn, disliked “Samantha”.
So does this mean that our group of friends is no longer the Fab Four and might become the Terrefic Three? This makes me wonder: why would a friendships end because of one bad time when there were so many bad times?
ps. Please comment with names we can call my new friend. She’s really hyper and loads of fun. Any Sex and the City reference is great but also another nickname would be great!
Today is a momumental day for my friends and me. Today we are all with one guy and one guy only. My friend “Charlotte”, the one with the blog New Yorke Cherie, has the most wonderful boyfriend for about seven months. My other friend “Miranda” is in the Hamptons to decorate a multi-million dollar house all while dating her personal assistant. How cliché. “Samantha” has had many relationships but only a few serious. She’s recently been working on the press for the Superbowl and has fallen for one of the Superbowl execs. If you knew her like I do you owuld realize why this is such a big deal because she usually falls for the one-night stand sort-of guys like bartenders and male models. So, now we are all happily in relationships. We are now all planning a dinner with all of our boys and us. It’ll be awkward but very fun to meet everyone. I’ve only met “Charlotte”‘s boyfriend and not “Miranda” or “Samantha”.
Today “Samatha” said to me on the phone that she had found ‘the one’ but before she was certain I had to meet him. Then I had a thought. Why do women need their friends advice and guidance before they can make an important choice? I can not be judgemental though because I know that before I buy anything over three hundred dollars I need my friend to come and watch me try things on. Can women not function without their friends’ input?
p.s. My friends have agreed to guest write a blog so if anyone is interested in hearing more about their relationships, jobs, or anything really just comment or email me.
