Guest Starring On RIZZOLI & ISLES Tonight!

Hey everyone!

Just letting you all know that I'm guest starring on tonight's episode of 'Rizzoli & Isles' on TNT at 9PM Pacific. I don't know the air times in other time zones, sorry! The name of the episode is 'Tears Of A Clown'. Please watch and let me know what you think of my performance. I'm nervous!

This is my third episode and due to the tragic death of Lee Thompson Young, it's probably my last episode.


I stole this photo from IndosPlace, a cool blog that features sexy women. 

Thanks Indo!! ;)

My YouTube Channel!

Hey y'all! So I posted back in December that I'm going to be expanding the content of my blog to make it more lifestyle based. And after much encouragement from loved ones, I've finally launched my YouTube channel. It's the same name as my blog and, in the future, I'll be including all manner of videos including makeup, fashion, and acting vlogs. I've just uploaded my first video welcoming viewers to my channel and I'm currently editing a couple of new videos. I'm hoping to post at least 2 new vids a week. Anyway, please check out my welcome video and let me know what you think and what you hope to see from me on my channel and blog!

Web/Social Media Presence

So I admit, I've been pretty anti-social media up until this point. I was one of the OGs of facebook and watched over the years as the site, in my opinion, took a turn for the worse. I eventually lost interest and deleted my account back in...September? Maybe October. Doesn't really matter.

Anyway, I caught a lot of heat when I deleted my page. People told me that I was making a mistake and that facebook was the new frontier for self-promotion. Basically, that I was cutting off a huge avenue to increasing my web presence. I tend to agree with that, but the reasons for me deleting my account far outweighed any social media benefits. I won't go into all of the reasons why, but a big one is the lack of personal contact with supposed "friends". You want to know who your true friends are? Delete your facebook page. Then you'll see who's really willing to pick up a phone and call you or hell, even text you. I think the following photo sums up my feelings most accurately.


But I digress.

As I'm early in the process of expanding my blog content, I've realized that while facebook is NOT for me, I don't really see any issues with Twitter or Instagram. I'd shied away from Instagram because I almost never take photos of myself, or anything for that matter, and just didn't see the point. I'm HORRIBLE at taking selfies. But, as I traipse all over the internet doing research on popular bloggers and vloggers, I really do see how valuable Instagram is in drastically expanding your web presence, and thus, your popularity.

I want this blog to be successful. I want to have a strong web presence. And I'm positive that attaining that will lead to more opportunities for me in both acting and modeling. If I ever go back to facebook, it won't be a personal page, but one attached to this blog. I've also decided to start a YouTube channel but I won't be launching that for a couple more weeks. That will essentially be the video version of my blog and I hope that you guys enjoy seeing some of these changes.

With all of that said, I'm not going to let this new endeavor completely take over my life as I see it happening to others. One of the biggest reasons my husband and I moved to LA was to improve our quality of life. I will continue to make sure that I'm enjoying my time with him, my friends, and even myself.

So with that said, if your web presence has helped to serve you in your career or social life, please leave me a comment with your personal experiences. Also, please let me know if you think I'm making a mistake in not having a facebook account. I'm really looking forward to hearing from you guys!

And of course, please follow me on Twitter and Instagram and share my blog with your friends, I will definitely follow you back! My links are on the righthand column below my main photo. I will ad a YouTube widget once I start posting videos.
