Having most of my work projects off-site and all of my family out of state, I listed some of the places I visited this year
  1. Lake Tahoe / Reno
    A0aef031 8f23 4680 9ae8 2fd973e27e38
    I borrowed $50 in chips only to win it back + $400 at the blackjack table. No big deal. This pic is of the neighbors lights next to our Airbnb.
  2. New York, New York
    4e8da7d1 56a1 4b47 ba9e 41a5a5a1de2b
    Hello, NY Fashion Week. Even though I lived in this city for a good chunk of time, I've had more exciting experiences as a visitor. I can honestly say, this visit has changed me for the better. This was my first time producing events for NYFW. I was legit able to achieve a childhood dream!
  3. Atlanta, Georgia
    7c9f9344 f8b8 41d3 87e8 4d62295eb80f
    More fashion-show-work stuff but finally was able to check out this intriguing lively city. Also, dinner at St. Cecilia was 💯
  4. Atlanta, Georgia continued

    The dream team against a background of models.
  5. Santa Barbara & Solvang
    E8305ad7 ed63 4efd 8caf 4f026841dd09
    Couples trip with my other Persian girl/White dude duo. We drank wine, brunched, and walked on lovely beaches. UPDATE: my coupledom has since concluded but the other duo is still going strong!
  6. Oakland & Berkley
    B6bae233 5104 4e25 a348 e59b6c59803c
    I visited my ever talented BFF, Ottessa Moshfegh, before she departed her residency at Stanford to head back east to continue her fabulous life while impressing the world with her talent. Google her and buy her book, she's cute and smart AND just so happens to be a NYT Editor's select http://nyti.ms/1NqDzhN
  7. Toronto & Montreal
    09883f16 f12b 40f7 bb7c 42e70042a239
    I missed the Grand Prix but it was still nice to visit my favorite city, Montreal. I always wonder where my life would have taken me if I had accepted my offer to McGill...le sigh...
  8. Boston
    6700a0a7 af86 4d2c 9b88 82416476b1ec
    Because summer, that's why!
  9. Portland, Maine
    1a98aba0 0ed9 49c6 aa6d d55756dd7079
    My home-state i.e. the whitest state in the country (don't fact check me). Still the best seafood on the planet!
  10. Portland, Maine continued
    B05385ce 0003 4db8 b2cc b13ec5096659
    Cousin pile. I was sitting there first.
  11. Portland, Maine continued
    E1d33598 495b 45e0 9005 d6263b39c6ac
    I lightly mentioned that I don't waste my time/money on hair cuts to one of my 15 aunts and she quickly roped in her brother to tag-team remedy this issue for me. Apparently they found my frizzed up mane offensive.
  12. Baltimore, Maryland
    3b3a8bf3 9861 4f43 ad43 53a5b34d4574
    Because the universe likes to use my life as a chew toy sometimes, that's why. I was stranded here after the Air Marshall shut down ALL east coast flights. ALL of them! Ive never had a flight cancelled on a layover and credited $24 to get back home to LA. It took me 3 days to find an available flight and about ($2k). It's ok, bc I got to stay at my aunt and uncle's and hang with the kiddos!
  13. Baltimore, Maryland continued

    How cute is he?
  14. Phoenix & Tucson, Arizona
    2e688cb3 1555 4aae 9641 c376bc76ff56
    Family
  15. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
    9cab6e9b 9348 4094 88ed 7d4faba2bd15
    My 19 year old brothers found the first bar that would serve them, then spent all their money on stupid shit.
  16. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico continued
    D0e259d4 f740 4084 92a7 47d9d0fd60b0
    Dad enjoyed his beers too. All I did was eat fish tacos. ALL the fish tacos.
  17. Mazatlan, Mexico
    3ff89b11 b80d 42d6 831c e040574ce789
  18. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
    Fdfa7b2c 2da1 48fb a023 931a3fcd601e
    This is a hidden gem. If you haven't been, I suggest you go ASAP! Rent a house with a private chef and bring 10 of your closest frenemies...or loved ones, your choice!

  21. But...
    Still doesn't feel like I've done much, maybe because 2014 had me home a total of 2 months but I still had a blast!
  22. Here's to 2016 bringing even more adventures!
