I don’t know about you, but last week felt exhausting. I’ve been catching up on work, submitting to various webinars, and even took two voice-over classes. So I apologize for not having a blog post up as consistently as possible. I did put up a Miami/Delray Beach vlog on my Youtube channel from back in February. I’m so thankful I got this trip in before all the chaos started.
If you’re like me, I’m sure you are tired of watching the news and sick of Youtubers trying to get you to buy crap. People have been losing their jobs, loved ones lives and essential workers should not have to risk their life so you can get another outfit. I hope this video can offer you a little tranquil escapism in a chaotic time. The video is below and linked here.
Hello everyone! How are you? Are you staying busy? Have you found a way to center yourself? I’ve organized so many things and gotten rid of a ton of old photos and footage from my dropbox and Google drive.
I thought I would share a post I’ve been meaning to put up since this past December. I had the pleasure of going to Art Basel and stayed at the Eurostars Langford in Miami.
What is Art Basel? Art Basel is basically a huge art show that originated in Switzerland and is now in Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Artist and galleries from all over the globe bring their piece to be shown and sold at this huge art festival. The first two days are not open to the public. As the years have gone by it has become a huge tourist destination for New York and LA gallery girls, socialites, DJs, celebrities and more. There are tons of brand parties and occasionally fashion events. Overall it’s a fun time to celebrate great art and get inspired for the new year. I always see this as a time to get recharged from the chaos of the year and see what some of my favorite artists have been up too.
I have never stayed at the Eurostars Langford hotel before and thought it would be easier to be close to Miami Beach, but not stay in that strip of hotels. The Langford was even more beautiful in person and they gave up vouchers for drinks at their rooftop bar. This hotel was a bank back in 1925 and still has some of the beautiful art deco touches. It was renovated in 2016 and officially opened as the Lanford Hotel.
Right now Art Basel is providing a free virtual tour you just need to make an account here. Did any of these pieces spark your interest or inspire you to create something?
I know I have been away way to long. I just wanted to say Merry Christmas!
To me, Christmas has always been about the joy of spreading kindness to others. Whether that is buying gifts for Christmas Angels through the Salvation Army, holding open the door for others or tipping your fabulous server 50 percent of the bill. This time of year so many people get caught up in the gifts I think its important to reflect on doing something kind for others. Two scriptures to remember this time of year.
A reminder of unconditional love and sacrifice
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
A reminder that patience and kindness is free, something we should all aim to practice year round.
1 Timothy 1:15-16
“15Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.
16But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.”
So I hope your Christmas was filled with love, joy and laughter!
