STREET ART INSPIRATION: DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS




If you've noticed my social media lately, you might already know that just moved back home to Las Vegas. Leaving Los Angeles was/is bittersweet and I will continue to commute back and forth for work, but there are many reasons I needed to relocate for now.  Most of them being personal and I hope to open up in the near future and share.  I wasn't sure how I felt about being back in Vegas again, but it's exactly where I need to be. Recently I attended the Life Is Beautiful Festival where my good friends and local Las Vegas band, Goldboot opened the show (shameless promo plug because they are that awesome!) and I discovered the most ah-mazing street art in Downtown Las Vegas.

I was excited when Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water asked me to team up so I could help introduce the new limited edition bottles and cans while featuring my fave local street art.

When I originally moved to Vegas in 1992, it was light years away from having any sense of culture. It was basically known for its' bright lights, loud slot machines, cheap beers and the faint memories of the Rat Pack. These days, Vegas is filled with a different kind of energy, more vibrant and happy. It feels more alive with art and music and the city prides itself on its’ dedicated community, as they strive to keep it this way.

It was nice to take a little stroll through the downtown area and see how much it had changed.  I was full of inspiration and secretly wished I had the talent of these awesome artists.














This post is sponsored by Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water in celebration of its new limited Street Art® edition. This limited edition packaging is a collaboration between Perrier and three of the world’s influential street artists: JonOne, Sasu and Kobra.

KIM KARDASHIAN AND HER ASS BALANCE SOME BUBBLY.


I don't usually chime in to celebrity news, but I just couldn't let this one pass me by. 

So, I will stand on my soap apple box too and help Kim Kardashian break the internet
But as long as there is champagne involved...  

What's the big deal? Really. This shot that Jean-Paul Goude recreated from his famous "Champagne Incident", is pretty ah-mazing. This is a genius photography. This is art. Yes, Kim bares her ass. Whoopdy. Friggin'. Doo.  If you had that waist and were were bountiful in the bootylicious department wouldn't you try to balance a glass of champage on your tooshie? I sure the heck would. Leave Kimye alone. There are plenty of more important things we can be complaining about in this world, but this derriere isn't one of them. 

Paper Magazine, KUDOS! Job well done. 

Kimye, Carry on, carry on.

REST IN PEACE OSCAR


This sad news has left me a bit numb.  I never had the opportunity to meet Oscar so maybe the sadness is yet another reminder, that we aren't invincible.  Over the past year, it seems my life has been filled crossroads at every corner.  Each event propelling me ahead, yet I face the struggle sometimes of which direction to go.  Today I will take a deep breath, be grateful for everything I do have and let these words echo in my ear... "be the designer of your own destiny."

Oscar, may your smile forever shine on.
