Hawaii | Cabo

Busy beginning of the year! Starting it off with my 23rd birthday, then straight off to Hawaii! What a way to start the year! I went on the trip with Garnier & they spoiled the heck out of us. Helicopter rides, spa days, snorkeling with turtles, seriously unreal. 8 hours after landing back in LA, I was off to CABO! 4 nights in Mexico, what a dream.

Jill & I went on our annual trip to San Francisco which was a BLAST. It was absolutely freezing but we had the best time! Of course there was also Valentines day, which we kept pretty lowkey this year! It was also my first time doing the rides at the Santa Monica pier!

Starting off the month with Jill’s 24th birthday, which we celebrated in Palm Springs! We rented an airbnb for a few days and basically spent the entire time in the Hottub (because where else would we be!??). Post Palm Springs, I’m off to Hawaii for the 2nd time of the year! How insane lol?! I was there shooting a commercial for Hawaiian Tropic which was such an incredible experience.
