Festival season is here and I couldn’t be more excited! So happy to team up with one of my favorite stores PrettyLittleThing to bring you this photo story filled with outfit inspo! You can find all these clothes on their website now 🙂
What’s on the menu at The Deck in Island Gardens?
Notorious Pink Rosé, the most delicious pear ravioli, Instyl shop outfits galore, and a table full of babes.
My amazing friends at Instyl Shop had a brunch to remember, although thanks to my love of rosé my memory is a bit blurry. One thing I do know is I had an incredible time! You can’t possibly go wrong with a big group of gorgeous girls (inside & out), great location, booze, and lots of fashion & goodies.
Special thanks to The Deck at Island Gardens & Notorious Pink for making the brunch spectacular!
Here is a little recap:

Rio De Janeiro was nothing short of amazing! It was as picturesque as I’ve seen in so many pictures growing up. I stayed in Ipanema Beach at the Fasano hotel, which I HIGHLY recommend. Most celebrities who visit Rio stay in this hotel which is how I knew about it from stalking countless celebrity IG pages, the views from the pool are unreal!
While I was here I had a couple photoshoots on Ipanema beach and even made time to visit the Jesus Statue. Hope you enjoy my photos!
The next part of my trip to Krabi was probably the most memorable. The resort we stayed in Krabi, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas, is accessible only by boat as it is completely surrounded by huge limestone cliffs. When you arrive by boat it looks like a secluded oceanfront hotel in the middle of the jungle, absolutely stunning and so different from anywhere I’ve ever stayed. From there, you can grab a long tail boat to go to the other beaches around Krabi. We loved Phra Nang Beach & Railey beach, they are pictured below with the random cliff shooting out of the beach water. You can actually swim up to this cliff and there is a small area with sand that makes you feel like you are stranded in the most beautiful deserted mini island. The views here are nothing short of spectacular, as were the views from our balcony. Many people take day trips from Phuket to see these beaches as they are continuously voted the most beautiful beaches in the world, but I decided a day tour wasn’t enough and stayed 3 nights nestled away beneath the trees.
As most of you saw on my social media, I had a very remarkable morning one of the days. After going on a morning run and feeding a banana to a monkey hiding beyond the trees, we arrived to our villa to see an entire colony of monkeys waiting in our patio. We went inside the villa and the monkeys were hanging from the door knobs trying to break it! It was the coolest yet slightly frightening experience ever. Of course, I finally decided to make friends with the monkeys and walked outside with them (my boyfriend slammed the door behind me) haha. Eventually when some of the monkeys left and everything settled down a bit, we walked out and fed them and had them jumping all over us. One of the monkeys sat on my boyfriends shoulder literally just chilling and didn’t want to come down. Once we came back inside, we sat there just looking at a family of monkeys who adopted our balcony as a home and all cuddled together (pictured below), it was so beautiful. After my monkey adventure I found out they can actually be quite dangerous, so please, use caution when playing with monkeys. A scratch or bite will you give you rabies, which have no symptoms and are fatal. Monkeys are funny & cute and hard to ignore, but be smart with your encounter. Don’t tease the monkeys or feed one when theres many around or it might cause them to get aggressive.
Hope you all enjoy and this post inspires you to take a little getaway beneath the trees!

The first part of my Thailand trip was in Phuket where I stayed in the Sri Panwa villas. This hotel was nothing short of amazing! We actually never went out into town as we had planned because we couldn’t get enough of our perfect villa with our own infinity pool overlooking the ocean as well as all the other amazing areas of the hotel.
My first three photos are at the hotels “Baba Nest”. A seriously picturesque outdoor lounge on a wooden deck surrounded by an infinity all around that only adds to the incredible landscapes in the backdrop. We got to our villa the first day around 5pm and had reservations at the Baba Nest at 6pm for sunset cocktails, it was the greatest welcoming to Thailand we could imagine. Of course, seeing our perfect villa upon arriving was also up there.
Like I said, I never ventured out to the town in Phuket, but what we did make sure to do was go on the boat tours to Phi Phi islands. In my opinion this is the most important part about visiting Thailand, this is a must see! The beautiful turquoise waters that surround these huge vertical limestone cliffs that shoot out of the water are definitely a sight to see. It was so beautiful and relaxing to boat around these islands and swim in their lagoons. We also made sure to stop by Monkey Islands to say hi to some of the goofy locals there. Monkeys in the island are super cute and funny but always make sure to be careful around them as they are still wild animals. You guys have probably seen my posts about my crazy monkey encounter but that will be up on my next post about Krabi, Thailand.
Enjoy and I hope this helps and inspires anyone looking to travel to Phuket!

It is my first day in Istanbul and I absolutely love it! Istanbul is such a culturally rich city with so many historical and cultural influences. Today I drove on a bridge that connects Asia and Europe. It was so interesting to learn that Istanbul is actually half in Europe and half in Asia. The people here are incredibly nice and accommodating. I am here for three days to appear on a Tv program so I will make a post about my entire trip soon!
Here I am wearing this amazing playsuit and cross body bag by Mura Boutique.
Pink is currently hotter than this summer weather right now and I am loving it!

I will be updating my travel section a lot within the week so stay tuned!
Visiting Egypt was a true adventure! My boyfriend and I have been wanting to see the Pyramids for a pretty long time and we somehow spontaneously decided to meet up there. I was shooting in Spain for a new swimwear campaign and was to fly back to Miami on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. I wanted to go somewhere for the long weekend and that’s when I decided that there was no point in coming back home and that he should just meet me in Europe 🙂
I did a lot of research prior to the trip as to what type of clothes I should pack. Basically, women shouldn’t wear any tight clothes or show their legs or shoulders. While I was out in the street I would wear scarfs over my hair and I never wore anything tight or showed my legs (you don’t HAVE to do this, I saw women in shorts. However, I just rather respect their culture and not get nasty comments). In many photos I’m posing with my legs out of my skirt or pants slit but I would never while out in the public streets, just in the hotel restaurants and areas that were touristy. For my pyramid photos, I asked my tour guide (who was a muslim) and he told me it was okay to take my tunic off and wear it as a bandana type for my photos. Pyramids is a mostly touristy area so I didn’t get many comments, just many people wanting to take photos.
On our last day, we went to a resort by the Red Sea because we really wanted to bathe in the waters that Moses supposedly parted. I thought there would be many American/European tourist but they were all from other Middle Eastern countries which means the women were bathing covered up from head to toe. I felt SO weird!! I only had small bikinis from my Spain trip where people bathe topless so it’s a COMPLETELY different world. I stuck through it and just never took off the sarong that was covering my tiny brazilian cut bottoms.
I will make a list of the hotels and nice places to see that I went to, as well as the AMAZING tour guides that we found. They were so helpful and open to speaking about their culture. Our tour guide to the Pyramids warned us about everything we should encounter there from the more corrupted Egyptians and he kept us safe the entire time. He also took all the photos below of me from the pyramids and even made us a beautiful video, all his idea! HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.
Mena House – This is were we stayed the first 2 nights. It is located in Giza where the Pyramids are situated. You can see from the photos below, it is the closest hotel to the Pyramids and you can see them from your balcony! I wanted to stay here first because I figured would be the best Egyptian welcoming to walk into my room and see the Pyramids outside. Downfall: No Wifi. However, the property was absolutely incredible.
Four Seasons Cairo: We stayed here the next two nights. It is located in downtown Cairo and close to everything. This hotel felt way more like home. They had wifi, nice pool area with outside restaurants, and even provided you with outlet adaptors. We had a huge balcony with an amazing view of the Nile River, the longest river in the world.
Mövenpick – Resort in Ain Sukhna by the Red Sea, we didn’t stay here but we got a day pass to use the beach and pool for only about $20 dollars. It was a 2 hour drive from Cairo but was totally worth it!
Sequioa – A Mediterranean restaurant by the water with a really nice vibe. Upscale but not really pricey with the US dollar conversion. They also give you a shisha (hookah) to smoke which is very common in Egypt.
8 Restaurant at Four Seasons – One of the most popular Chinese restaurants in Cairo, also upscale and nice.

I just got back from a mini getaway on a Cruise ship. I was aboard the Norwegian Pearl for 3 days and stopped at two Bahamas Islands. The weather in Miami has been acting up lately so it was nice to finally get some sun and sport some bikinis.
These beach photos were taken in Cabbage Beach in Nassau. The water is absolute perfection! I highly recommend this beach which is situated on Paradise Island area of Nassau. Most people go straight to Atlantis but we stopped by the One&Only resort and it was so dreamy and such a nice stroll.

I recently got a new camera and me and my boyfriend haven’t gotten tired of playing with it since. I love being able to take photos with someone I can be so comfortably sexy with and I think he brings it out in me. Definitely beats shooting with random photographers! The playfulness of being able to roll out of bed and take pictures without thinking its a job or spending hours in full hair and makeup makes me remember why I love modeling so much and how much fun it is for me.

What an amazing short and sweet trip in Italy with bae and his family. We flew into Venice and took a train days later to Rome and stopped in Florence along the way. Very easy to just take the trains down this path as they are all on the way. Next time I have more days in Italy I will definitely be making it out to the coast!
Venice is a beautiful little floating city where you can spend 2-3 days. It is very small so everything can be seen quickly. Very romantic with its Gondola rides and water front dining. Rome was absolutely beautiful and although it had so many incredible historical and ancient landmarks, it was also a very modern city. We spent one of the days in the Vatican and it was so eye opening. My favorite part was seeing the ever so famous Michelangelo painting on the ceiling of the Sisteen Chapel. You aren’t allowed photos in there but as you can see in my gallery I snuck one in 🙂
One thing we all learned in our trip was to find little whole in the wall restaurants for the best most authentic delicious pasta!! The pasta photo in my gallery was at our favorite pasta spot in Rome that was literally hidden in an alley. So yummy!
I recently collaborated with two brands/stores I love, La Isla and Fancy.com – I absolutely LOVED this limited edition sports illustrated bikini from La Isla. I highly recommend heading to Fancy for the most unique products from a massive range of categories! I can spend hours looking up cool stuff on the site 🙂
I had a photo-shoot last week with Charles Williams and decided to bring my Blog’s photographer Angelica Oseguera along to come take some cool BTS photos! I think it’s interesting to see how some of the images are taken and what cool angles are used. Sometimes you see a beautiful image but don’t imagine that photographers are sometimes standing on ladders (in this case counters) to get the shot!

My trip to Ibiza was definitely one of the most amazing in my lifetime. Such a beautiful and magical little island. Being there with best friends and meeting so many new ones along the way really made it special. There are so many things to do from beautiful beaches, amazing food, great nightlife, and breath taking spas on the mountains.
