My L.A.

If you haven't heard, I'm moving to New York this week. It's quite a mixed of emotions to experience my FIDM graduation just a couple of weeks ago and now have my things all packed for the Big Apple. I must say, time really hasn't slowed down one bit.

In the past two years... LA has really played a character in my time here... both as a student and a person. During the early times of heartache and agony to these last days of bittersweet triumphs, LA has put me through a lot...Like a best enemy or worst friend. If you've kept up with my posts here, it's been a constant battle and a love-hate relationship with LA. But...I can honestly say that I will miss LA so much (probably more than I'd like to admit).

LA has introduced me to some of the most incredible people in this industry...people I know I will have in my life for a very long time... and those who will cross my path again in the future. I've gained so much perspectives on things... life, career, relationships...even a stronger sense of myself. Despite all the ongoing distractions in this crazy city, my LA experience was a time of self-discovery.

Thank you L.A. for all this and more. You will be greatly missed.

Now on to New York City. Follow us in the sequel to FIDM life... at

My life as Niki Shadrow's Assistant.

Just wanted to share a few random snap shots of my role as an assistant to celebrity stylist and editor and FIDM alumni, Niki Shadrow.

I do everything an assistant is suppose to do.
From organizing our intern database to sometimes doing pulls+returns myself.
Help with styling celebrity clients to styling models at photo shoots.
Handling Niki's breakdowns and meltdowns.
She's more than just a boss, she's become like a bestfriend.
A mentor and guide.
Love her.
wouldn't work for anyone else.

So since my last day of class which was Monday.
I've been at her studio every day.
We're prepping for a little secret that I cannot wait to reveal.
But until then, it's a secret.

here I am on my way up to the studio with a pair of new platforms.

Hard at work with 6 laptops on the table.
With Niki's sisters Stephanie and Danielle.
we were all in their studio working hard all week and prepping for the deadline.
Although I don't like doing them, with our interns away for break or back home I am responsible for all pulls and returns.
handy dandy iBob that guides me to all my destinations.
oh Downtown L.A.
I get to be by Niki's side whenever she styles a client.
And sometimes now, I get the privilege to style models at photoshoots and events!
I help with styling Niki's clients as well. we previously did Kara Taitz from MTV for the MTV movie awards.
yes, i do everything.
such as picking up cupcakes at a grocery store for niki's boyfriend's birthday 2 weeks ago.

the boss lady, Niki Shadrow, myself, and who I like to call my now husband and former intern and who also blogs on here, Ben.

one more week.

Just wanted to check in...

I am 4 finals away from being done! I have my Applied Management FINAL presentation today... one on Thursday, an exam next week, and then my portfolio presentation Wednesday.

WOW. As much as I want school to be over, I get teary-eyed just thinking about graduation.

Today, I am dressed professionally for my presentation... but I feel like a zombie--still dead, halfasleep. This week, I'll tell you, is nothing short of hell.

Just one more week... one more week....ONE more week to get through.

If I make it and I survive... I will be back to blog. Until then, good luck with your killer finals.
