Helloooo Beautiful People! Hope everyone is having the best day ever!!

Before I dive into the topic, I know you're probably curious as to how I know anything about 'making it in Hollywood'. The truth is, I am not famous, I don't have a ton of money, nor do I live in Hollywood. BUT- before you stop reading, I DO have a lot of experience working in the entertainment industry.

I have performed work as a stand-in, photo double, extra, featured player, and supporting actress in many different TV shows and movies such as The Big Bang Theory, The Goldbergs, The Real O'Neals, Gilmore Girls: Revival, Forever Boys (Disney pilot),  Blood and Oil, The Fosters, Code Black, The Middle, Speechless, NCIS, etc etc. I have been SO fortunate to be a part of those productions and more, and have had SO much fun doing it.

That being said, these are just tips that I have found to be helpful in getting picked for roles. Also if you have ANY questions about the work I've done on those shows or anything that you want to know about what it's like working on set or with those actors, I would love to answer them <3

Alright, moving on.

5 - SAY YES.  If you only want to play a certain part, you are going to have very limited opportunities. If you only accept roles for the cheerleader or the 'hot mom', you are crippling yourself as an actor/actress. Basically what I'm saying, but in a nicer way is, 'You get what you get and you don't throw a fit'. Unless you are truly uncomfortable with a part, such as nudity (which yes, there is a LOT of in Hollywood), and I won't do, just enjoy the part you're offered.

Another part of this tip is a quote from Richard Branson: "If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes- then learn how to do it later".

This couldn't be a better quote for making it in Hollywood. If they ask if you can juggle, say yes, and learn how to do it before your next audition. This can go for just about anything. Keep this in mind.

And yes it happens regularly in Hollywood. Take risks. Be brave. You have nothing to loose.

4 - Know what fits you.  I know I just said to take risks and do what you may not be entirely comfortable with, and that still rings true. However, knowing what fits you is also a huge part of making it in the industry.

Hollywood is a superficial place. Acting is superficial as well. It IS about looks, a HUGE part of getting a part is about how you look. Sorry, but it's true. The good news is that Hollywood needs ALL sorts of looks so it truly doesn't matter because they will still need you but it will probably be for a stereotypical role.

Me, I'm twenty-one, almost twenty-two, and I look like a very naive, innocent, sixteen-year-old. The parts I book the most are roles called '18 to look younger'. In a nutshell, casting departments prefer not to book minors. It's a long story involving SAG (Screen Actors Guild) rules pertaining to child labor laws. Even though acting may not seem like an intense job, it is still considered child labor and minors cannot work for long hours. Anyways, primarily, I book high school roles and especially prep school or Catholic school roles.

Would it be fun to book something other than naive, innocent, high school roles? Of course, and sometimes I do, but I know what parts fit me and where I will get the most success.

3 - Learn new skills. Take acting classes, learn random skills like skateboarding, singing, speaking a new language, surfing, etc etc. This might sound silly and small but I promise you this is a HUGE tip. The more skills you have, that casting departments are looking for, the smaller the pool of actors becomes.

For example, as I said earlier, I look young, I play guitar and I sing. So when I see an audition for someone who is '18 to look younger who can play guitar and sing', I JUMP on it. That is how I booked The Fosters, as well as the Disney pilot Forever Boys. The pool of actors is smaller when they have a list of skills they need the actor to possess. If it had solely said '18 to look younger', there are probably close to a million actors who fit that bill. It gets cut with each skill they add.

Anything that you can do is a bonus. Even hobbies or activities that seem small to you, can land you a huge part.

2 - Be confident. I know this sounds cliche, but again, this is huge. If you aren't confident, at least pretend, because this is so important and especially in auditions.

Another tip that coincides with this is 'never apologize'. You will hear this in Hollywood and in the entertainment industry all. the. time. If you go into an audition and say 'sorry, I'm not as prepared as I should be', or 'sorry, I'm just getting over a cold', that is a huge DON'T.

Go into an audition and own it. If the casting directors ask you to sing, you sing, if they ask you to dance, you dance, even if you suck at it. That shows the casting directors not only that you are willing to do what they ask of you, but it also shows that you are confident and can have fun with it. Even if you aren't good at what they ask you to do, it is SO important to do it anyway and don't make excuses.

1- Stay positive. Being entirely honest, I HATE this tip, I do. But again, it is so important. I hate it because it's hard for me to remember. When I've been standing outside in 10-degree weather for thirteen hours in high heels, I want to SCREAM. I want to throw a huge fit, but you have to enjoy the experience.

There are so many people who would love to be in your place, acting, (not standing outside in cold weather), and not to mention, the crew is watching. Directors, PA's (production assistants), etc, they pay attention to you and you do not want to be seen as the person complaining, it only makes you look bad.

Another thing that is so important to remember, if you have to complain, don't just complain to anyone. Please please please, pay attention to this.

The acting world is small. Everyone knows everyone. If you are complaining to the Grip (Camera help), he/she could be the director's cousin. Seriously. If you are complaining to the 2nd AD (2nd Assistant Director), they could be the director of the next movie you audition for. No, I'm not exaggerating. You will work with the same crew repeatedly, and you could ruin your career in Hollywood before it even begins by complaining or being disrespectful, and especially to the wrong people.


The entertainment industry is so much fun. I've had the time of my life in California and Utah, acting on these incredible projects. I've met so many amazing people and seen so many amazing things. It is not as glamorous as it appears and sometimes it is VERY hard work (I will make a post about this in the future), but if this is what you want to do. Do it! You can do anything you put your mind to. Best of luck!

*I know this is a blunt and honest, maybe a little harsh, of an article, but these are SO important and I cannot stress that enough. If becoming an actor is something that you are serious about, these are key to keep in mind.

** I am not an expert, this is my experience from working in the film industry and on numerous sets. I'm sure there are plenty of other actors who have had different experiences and will give different tips, these are just from my own experience. I'm not trying to start any debates or arguments about this.

*** I know this was a little all over the place but I've had so many questions about this and I really wanted to get it posted and out there. But if you have ANY more questions. I would love to answer them! Please DM me or email me or comment below! Thanks! Love you all xoxo

3 Reasons why it's okay to elope and not tell anyone

Hi Everyone <3

I know this is a random topic but it is important to me because this is something that I did personally. Not recently, but almost two years ago I married the most incredible man, in secret, and I have absolutely no regrets.

My husband and I had a simple courthouse wedding, with very few friends and family present, and we didn't tell anyone who wasn't present for months after, and why I think this is such a huge topic to discuss is because the amount of negative feedback I've received from friends and family is outstanding. We've had SO many people be supportive as well and we couldn't be more appreciative, but the amount of negativity has shocked me. So this is just my two cents and what I have to say about it:

3 - It is MY life.

Not yours. I am an adult, I can do what I want. Seems simple enough but people often times have difficulty comprehending that, especially friends and family. I will do me, you do you. This might come across as harsh but honestly, this is the base; the foundation for this post. Don't let people judge you for the decisions you make. It is YOUR life.

2 - New marriage pressure.

This is a HUGE pet-peeve of mine and a large reason as to why I kept quiet about getting married for awhile.

Newlyweds are looked at by their friends and family, church, school, or organization, as being just that, newly weds. In this day and age, people enjoy being involved in exciting events like marriage, which is great, but it causes unnecessary pressure to be and act like your marriage is perfect. When a close friend of mine was married to her long-time boyfriend, after a week or a month, people would always ask 'How is the married life?' or 'How is your marriage? Do you guys fight?' etc, etc. Even just writing this I'm getting heated. There is such pressure on those who have recently become married and it shouldn't be that way.  Unless there is a serious problem in the marriage, if you argue, and how often you argue, should not be announced to social media.

1 - It's not your business.

I will share what I want with my friends, family, and community. Marriage is between two people, not the world. There are people who are near and dear to me that I will share information with but it is not a requirement to post your life on Facebook for everyone to see. If you are comfortable doing that and being entirely transparent about your relationship, that is amazing! I'm not bashing that at all. Basically what I'm saying is that there is no rule book that says you HAVE to inform everyone of everything in your life.

Marriage is a wonderful, hard, beautiful event, and I learn new things every day. I am in no way criticizing any form of marriage or any plans, I am solely saying that however you choose to celebrate, it is YOUR choice and no one who respects you as a person should bash you for doing it.

You all are amazing. Do YOU for YOU. xoxo


Dress up dress down

Hello Lovelies! 

Sometimes we find ourselves in last minute situations desperate for a dress. Everyone has been there. Whether the cute guy in your history class invited you out last minute, or you forgot to pack a dress for your vacation, it is a valuable skill to be able to dress up anything. 

Below are some examples I created a Polyvore (side note, if you love fashion and don't know what Polyvore is, go there now and thank me later) that dress up a particular item and dress down that same item... I hope you all can find these helpful and save you in a time of need. 

XOXO always


How to spot a real Louis Vuitton

This last week I have spent many hours on Ebay researching the Keepall B 45, my  dream luggage. I have done research after research on this topic in hopes to purchase an authentic one and if it's any consolation, I still haven't made a purchase. It takes a lot of time and energy to go through and compare bags to originals but here are some tips that will hopefully help you, as they have me! 

In this day and age, counterfeit Louis Vuitton bags are all over the place. Not only that, but the work put into counterfeiting has increased tremendously and it can be really hard to tell if you have an authentic bag. 

1 - "D" rings. Authentic Louis Vuitton uses "D" rings a lot and are probably the most common ring used on the bags. 

2 - If it is an older bag, (before the early 90's), the "f" in france, will be LOWERCASE.  In the newer bags, the "F" is capitalized. 

3 - If anywhere on the bag, (luggage tage, stamp, etc) it solely says 'Louis Vuitton', it is not legitimate. A bag will always say 'LOUIS VUITTON, PARIS, made in france, or something along those lines. Also something to be aware of is Louis Vuitton DID make purses elsewhere. Their is a Louis Vuitton line from the USA, and Spain as well. 

4 - Know the product. Check on the actual Louis Vuitton site to make sure the product is actually a product. For example, Louis Vuitton never made a multicolor backpack. 

5 - The font on the stamp is important and if the two T's on Vuitton touch, the bag is not authentic. Also the "O' on Louis, need to be almost perfectly rounded. 

6 - Stitching. The stitching on the bag is VERY important. Louis Vuitton is a high quality name and no authentic bag will have backstitching, stitching from the outside of the bag running through the inside, uneven stitching or anything else that looks low quality. Also, all Louis Vuitton items will have yellow threading coated in beeswax. 

7 - Check out the monogram placement on bag. the LV will always line up and most of the time the logo will be in the middle down the bag, between the two handles. However, there are a few exceptions to his (A couple of the Keepall's and a few others)

All of this being said, the most important thing to remember is that Louis Vuitton is a top notch brand and wouldn't make anything less, so if a bag or wallet seems cheap, it's fake, 

Another thing to be aware of is that these are tips mostly for purchasing online. Most of the bags on Ebay are fake, and if they claim to be from an "outlet" or something along those lines, they are also fake. Purchasing through Louis Vuitton is the only way to confirm 100% that the bag is authentic. 

Love you all! Don't get scammed (: xoxo


Contacts or glasses?

Good morning Lovelies!

In the time that I have been M.I.A, a few things have changed in my life. I have a very cute and sweet boyfriend, I have started dancing again, I started a different job (bye Starbucks), and I switched out my big black frames for contacts! I guess looking back, my life has changed more than I realized, but certainly in a better direction.

That being said, I have come to the conclusion that contacts have indeed been better than glasses and below is why!

1 - Contacts are easy once you figure out YOUR way to put them in and take them out. I can't even tell you how many Youtube videos I've watched on those two subjects, but I can tell you that none of those worked for me. I realized that everyone has there own way of doing it and it's the best way for each of us.

2 - You can't feel contacts. Glasses move around on your face and you have to consistantly push them up. Which being completely honest, doesn't bug me but it might be an issues for others.

3 - Contacts give you better peripheral. If you look to your far left or far right wearing glasses, it becomes apparent how bad your vision is without them. With contacts in, they cover all the bases and you're only reminded of your terrible vision when you take them out.

4 - Sunglasses. I know there are tons of options out there for prescription sunglasses and all of that, but what if you go to Target and find a cute pair there that you want to buy on the spot? I needed that sort of freedom in my life, and I will tell you that the day after getting contacts, I did that very thing and it was everything I'd ever hoped it would be.

5 - Rollercoasters! I don't know about anyone else, but wearing glasses to amusement parks has always scared me. It strikes a new kind of fear into you when you realize that your vision could fly off your face at any twist or turn, and it also strikes a new kind of fear into you when you ride rides blind. That I will tell you, makes the rides a whole lot more thrilling and not necessarily in a good way. I haven't been to any amusement parks since getting contacts, but I am certain I will be able to go without having those fears in the back of my mind.

6 - You can wear eyelash extensions or falsies better! I have been slightly envious of those people with naturally long eyeslashes since mine are so short you can't even tell I have eyelashes without mascara on, so I am finally getting the eyelash extensions that I have dreamed about for a while now and I couldn't be more excited!

7 - Confidence. Wearing contacts has made me more confident. I truly never had a problem with glasses, I felt like they looked fine on me but having contacts just gives you new freedom and new confidence. It's a good feeling.

Remember that underneath it all, looks isn't what it's about. You can enjoy all of those things with contacts or glasses, it's just fun to have two different options. Love you all! If you have any questions feel free to email me or comment below! XOXO  and yes, I'm holding a donut.


7 ways to feel more girly and fab.

1- Get your nails done! 
Get acrylics or just paint them a fun color at home! You will feel much more confident, happy, and girly when you're finished! 

2- Treat yourself to something special.
Whether it be buying yourself a nice cup of coffee, getting a massage, or splurging a little on the cute boots you saw at the mall... Do it! Treat yourself (and others) the way that you want to be treated!  

3- Buy yourself a cupcake. 
It is OK to buy yourself a cupcake. Even if you don't think you need it. Pick out a cute cupcake from a cupcake store! (Most of the time they will put it in a cute box with a cute bow and then you feel special carrying your cute cupcake box around.)

4- Do some stretches. 
You will feel so much better afterwards and better about yourself! 

5- Light some candles. 
Because why not? They smell good and give a nice relaxing atmosphere. Let me recommend the Bath & Body Works Banana candle. It doesn't necessarily smell like bananas but it does smell amazing! I use the wallflower in my bedroom. 

6- Splurge at PINK.
I don't know what it is, but wearing VS and PINK brand just makes you feel better about yourself. It is a femine brand that gives you confidence. 

7- Love yourself. 
You don't have to go out and buy yourself something to feel girly, girly is a state of mind. You need to be confident in who you are and keep yourself mentally and physically healthy. 


P.s I'm sorry I haven't posted in a couple weeks Lovelies! That is changing. I promise I will be more frequent! I want to hear how all of you guys are doing. Comment below and lemme know. (:
