Bella Magazine Party

Thank you to Bella Magazine and Camila Alves for having me at your cover issue party! The party was at Sofitel Hotel and Restaurant last night in Beverly Hills. It was so great to meet the editor and publisher of the magazine that covers the luxury lifestyle of both New York and Los Angeles. Dermalogica Skin Care sponsored the party, handing out free samples and a certificate for a 20 minute treatment–thank you Dermalogica!

Camila was so sweet and remembered meeting my mom at the “Sing” Premiere with her husband Matthew McConaughey. Thank you again Bella Magazine and Camila for a great night!

And if you haven’t yet, go checkout Bella Magazine and pickup a copy of this month’s issue with Camila Alves as the cover girl!

Best,

Patience

  

There is so much I want to share with the world, that sometimes it’s hard to make sure everything I want to share is in the place I want it to be before I open my ideas to the world. I have been working on so many different things that I have input my love and passion into. However, the things I love and am passionate about take time to complete. As a college student trying to balance my personal life, school work, my career, and my overall well-being, it can get tough to figure out how to make time in the day for everything I aim to accomplish. I am currently on a journey that has taken precious time, but has taught me so much and enriched my life and spirit along the way. The cover I recorded with Elliot Lanam is completed and ready to be shared, but the video for the song is still in its editing phases. During times like these, I must remind myself and the people around me to endure patience. Patience is such a fundamental part of this life we are all living. So through my journey, I am learning to be more patient and will continue to put 100% of myself into everything I want to share with the world.

XOXO,
Lizzy

“Let me Love You”

Hello everyone!
Sorry it has been a minute since I have been on here, the holidays and traveling may have gotten the best of me. However, I am back and have most definitely kicked things into gear for 2017. My newest cover, “Let me Love You” by Justin Bieber, produced by Elliot Lanam, is officially done and will soon be released! Working with Elliot was so effortless, and I can’t wait to start creating some more original music with him. Along with the song release will be a video, directed by one of my best friends, Charlotte Manning, who is an extremely talented film-maker. I can’t wait for you guys to hear this new take on such a popular and loved song, and see what Charlotte and I visually created. The aimed release date is sometime in February so keep your eyes out and your ears open!

Thank you, much love!
XO,
Lizzy

Take a peak at Whiskey and Leather

Whiskey and Leather is an amazing boutique in Montecito, California. I had the pleasure of doing a photoshoot with them, showcasing the Fall Collection of For Love and Lemons for their website and social media. Faith Reineck, a friend, and the photographer/intern for Whiskey and Leather boutique, took me all around Montecito, from the magical Four Seasons to the stunning Butterfly Beach. It was a wonderful, sunny Friday and we spent it taking pictures around what I consider to be one of the best cities in the world. The owners of Whiskey and Leather are two UCSB Alumni (woo go Gauchos) named Zee Chew, and Ariel Hujar who have made their vision and love for fashion and a zen lifestyle come to life in this cute little boutique. Walking into the store makes you feel like you could be in the middle of New York City! Definitely check them out and make your way to incredible Montecito for a visit!

Best,

Lizzy XOX

The Final Five

olympics-team-j-800

I loved watching the Olympics. The U.S. women’s gymnastics team impressed me. I can’t imagine all the time, dedication and practice it takes to get to the Games, much less participate in them. The ladies of the team looked so happy doing what they love to do– and they did it well!

For me, the gymnastics competition was kind of like watching a football game where it comes down to the last minute to see who wins. Midway through their events, the U.S. team led by four points and then they came in first place outdistancing their biggest competition, Russia, by 8.209 points. This was a pretty big deal because it was the first time the U.S. women’s gymnastics team won back-to-back Olympic golds. They were #1 in 2012 and now they’re #1 again– that’s pretty amazing.

I also liked how the team chose a nickname, “The Final Five.” It reminded me of how you have to not only think of what you want your goal to be, in life, but also write it down, name it, tell others about it, etc. These ladies– Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian, Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, and Gabby Douglas– showed the world how young ladies can reach their dreams. They sure did inspire me, and I’m thinking there’s a whole generation of young women who look up to them, too.

xoxo, Lizzy

A Summer to Give Back

IMG_4332

Are you traveling somewhere new this summer? With the weather generally being sunny and warm in most places, summertime is prime traveling time, isn’t it?

 

Here’s the thing: while we often like to be pampered and enjoy things like pools, spas and all that good stuff, what about doing something kind for others while you’re on your trip?

 

I’ve got an idea to make your summer trip more interesting. Go to the local store and buy several supplies you can put in a nice bag to give to someone who is homeless. Shop for things like an umbrella, moist towelettes, sunscreen, chewing gum, a comb or hairbrush, socks, and anything else you think would be practical, useful gifts for someone less fortunate. If you don’t have a lot to spend, try shopping at the Dollar Tree or Wal-Mart where you can find many great items.

 

Pack a bag, or two, or three, or more and take ‘em with you on your “vacation.” Then, make a point to look for someone in need. Unfortunately, underpriveleged people are not hard to find– you’re likely to see panhandlers on the streets of most cities, in parks, or along highways… especially at exits where cars line up to make their turns. Hand them your bag of goodies and wish them a happy day! Trust me, doing something kind and unusual like this will be a highlight of wherever you go this summer.

Balance is Key

 

Life is complex, isn’t it? In the old days, most people got one job and stuck with it through retirement. Today, however, it’s not unusual for people to have multiple sources of income. For example, I might be working on a music project while also doing other things to make money, and that’s okay. It’s not a bad thing to have more than one job or more than one passion.

What are you passionate about? For me, I love singing and performing. If you can find things you’re passionate about, pursue them!

When life gets intense, try multitasking. It’s when you juggle a bunch of things “to do” at once. Make lists so you can cross things off as you do them. For instance, a typical day might include doing laundry, paying bills, catching a favorite TV show and exercising for an hour. It’s good to have multitasking lists each day. Accomplishing goals makes people feel good. Of course you will need to remember that balance is key. You don’t want to get too busy such that you’re overwhelmed and literally just shut down.

Time management is something I give serious thought and consideration to on a daily basis. I “take stock” of what I have to do, and then figure out how to work my schedule so I can get things done. I make sure to leave time for rest and relaxation, too.

Keep this mind and be aware XO,
Lizzy
