After the party....IS THE AFTER PARTY! The once-a-year only Victoria Secret Fashion show success definitely deserved celebration! You'd have to be practically living under a rock to miss out on the angels walking the runway in this televised event. The 2015 after party was held at the infamous restaurant/nightclub TAO Downtown. Most certainly the hottest night of the year with all the beauty that filled the room. It was actually quite overwhelming considering it isn't every day that you get to party in one of Manhattan's elite clubs with not just models, but VICTORIA SECRET MODELS. GOALS!
Although, it would have been cool to see the models with their wings at the after party, I'm sure no one was trying to get knocked over to the ground at the club. Nonetheless, the party was phenomenal filled with scrumptious hors d'oeurves passed around and jams from DJ QuestLove on deck. As the night progressed, we quickly found ourselves sharing the couch with none other than Lais Ribiero, Romee Strijd, & Sara Sampaio just to name a few. All who were extremely nice and social with everyone congratulating them.
Other than the models themselves, Leonardo DiCaprio, Austin Mahone, Darren Chris, and Cuba Gooding Jr. were among the many celebrities spotted. Everyone seemed to have had a great time, and of course I most definitely did as well! It was everything and more, it was above and beyond and definitely a bucket list goal crossed off.
Here are some pictures from the party! Literally surrounded by angels you could most definitely say I was blessed.
Music. Central Park. Do I have to say more? Not really but I will anyways. I'm posting this about a month later than I should've but midterms have been taking over and its been hard to keep up with everything.
Global Citizens is a musical festival held in NYC every year and hosts special performers to benefit the great cause of ending poverty and other problems world wide. What's cool about global citizens festival is that its a ticket event, however, not anyone can just buy the tickets. As a matter of fact, the whole point is that you don't have to buy them. It's technically a free event but in order for you to obtain tickets you have to do "missions" or good deeds. Anything from community service, to sending emails, or making phone calls to prime ministers and world wide leaders count. Finally, after achieving points for doing these missions you get placed into a lottery to receive tickets.
I was actually able to win 4 tickets because of the many missions I completed and decided to bring my roommates and my best friend from back home. We were super excited because Beyonce and Cold Play were part of the lineup along with a few other artists. We decided to arrive an hour before the gates actually opened thinking we'd get a decent spot, however, once arriving to Central Park we realized it was crazy because there were people who had been camping out for days. Beyonce fans go hard! Haha, once they opened the gates and inside we managed to get a decent spot on the grass way better than what we had expected.
WOW. Beyond is such an incredible performer. I was completely blown away by her ability to kill it on the stage. It's actually kind of scary how good of a performer she is. Let's not forget about the graphics, lights, stage set up, and back up dancers that definitely helped in bringing everything together.
Overall, it was such an amazing experience except for the $8 chicken chipotle wrap which i regret consuming.
I love music and I love festivals! To me it gave me some coachella vibes in the middle of the city with much greener scenery, of course. Seeing Cold Play perform gave me goosebumps because I realized how blessed I am to be able to see the live in the iconic Central Park in none other than NYC! The fact I live her now definitely kicked in and made me super appreciative. If any of you have been to Global Citizens or any other music festival comment below and tell me about your experience :D
Where do I even begin?! It's only been three weeks since I've moved to New York, and already I've been flooded with a busy agenda. Part of it is my fault because I like to keep myself busy and tend to look for things to do and places to be. One of these things of course, New York Fashion Week. To be quite honest, even though I am no fashion expert I wanted to go anyways for the experience and to learn a thing or two. I had always heard and read about NYFW and it seemed crazy to me that for the first time ever I'd be in the same city while it was going on. So why not attend right? Here's a glimpse on my street style, celebrity, and of course, after party filled week!
Street Style Day 1:
Calvin Klein blazer
Yeezy x Adidas sneakers
Wrist game: Hermes bracelet & Fossil watch

Treauu, Givenchy, Alexander Wang, PopSugar X Jonathan Simkhai, Public School, Galore Magazine, Dexter Dexter

In a nutshell, I can officially say that NYFW was a success. There were so many things I did not get to do, and shows I did not get to attend but its fine because there is always next season right? All in all, there were so many things that I learned, great people I got to meet, and I had such an awesome experience. Spring/Summer 2016 is looking mighty fine!
