Beauty Regime

Welcome to the secret world of my medicine cabinet, a peek into my personal skin care regime. I am obsessed with trying new products, whether they are from CVS or the beauty counter at Neiman Marcus! I decided to elaborate on my favorite high-end brands verses my favorite drug store brands. It's important to know what your skin type is, and don't be afraid to splurge on your skin! Maybe it's an indulgence on chanel eye cream, or the tried and true vaseline from the drugstore. But your personalized skin care regime is essential, take time to love and care for your skin. Love yourself from the inside out.  A healthy girl, is a happy girl!
Love,
Kaki

Spring Fashion

This Winter in NYC has been brutal, one of the coldest in history! So the joy of Spring-time with it's sunshine, vibrant pinks and espadrilles is pure heaven to me. Below are some of my personal Spring looks. Remember, the beauty of fashion & design is to take risks and express ones personality!
Love,

Fashion Editorial

My homage to photographer John Russo:
In August 2013 I first met world renown photographer John Russo. Our first photo shoot together was phenomenal. Which progressed into more shoots and an incredible friendship. John Russo is the Steven Spielberg of photography. He is a genius with lighting and has a quiet confidence that makes it look effortless. He is a visionary. More importantly he breathed new life into my quasi retired modeling career. I had been happily devoted and very distracted as a new wife, step-mom and adjusting to my new home in New York City. John has been behind the scenes full of advice, optimism & fortitude. I am humbled & full of gratitude towards John. The power of an "I believe in you" can carry the human spirit a long way. I look forward to new ventures to come!
Love,
Kaki

Below are my photos from my latest shoot with John Russo recently published.

Happy 2014

Happy New Year! Out with old in with the New! Let Go & Let God. My 2013 was filled with love, drama, travel, family, fashion & career highs!
I want to take this moment to say Thank you to all of you lovely Blog readers for your support and or curiosity into my little world. I wish you all the very best for 2014. There is nothing as invigorating as a clean slate, a do- over. Take advantage of this new year and if you must look back, take the time to right the wrongs you may have made. The greatest part of life is that we can always start anew, strive to be better.
Forgive and forget, to forgive is to forget. It's Bull-shit to say I forgive you but I don't forget what you did. That in translation means your still holding onto all that negativity & pain.
Take 2014 to let it all wash away, delete your contacts, close the door and dead bolt it if you have too! Grow as big, bright and beautiful as God intended for you, and don't let anyone dull your shine.
Happy 2014, hold your head high and let this be your YEAR!

Love,
Kaki
