I had the privilege of speaking on a panel for Syracuse University recently and it was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in a long time. I was able to chat with college juniors and seniors studying out here in LA for the semester as they geared up to apply for their first jobs. If these kids are any indication of our future, I left feeling like will be in great hands. They’re smart, they’re positive thinkers and they want to make a difference. Since I haven’t shared too much about my work life outside of RELish with you here, this particular panel inspired me to open up a bit more about it. So without further ado, today, I’m sharing my favorite secrets on how to nail your first job in Hollywood. If you read this and you do end up making it, I ask only that you continue to pay it forward, that you always stay humble and most importantly, that you hire Naiya as your assistant someday.
After we had Naiya, we went from seeing our families a few times a year to so many times a year, it’s become increasingly difficult to keep track! All of this extra family time has really upped our travel game recently–especially since Phil and I are both east coast transplants and we want to make sure we are able to visit everyone. This weekend, we took a road trip from LA to Phoenix and back to see Phil’s family for a total of almost 6 hours each way. In prepping for the trip, while I initially couldn’t help but picture a baby crying fest and anxiety overload, we lived to tell the tale! Today, I’m rounding up our favorites tips in case you have family road trips with your baby or toddler planned in the near future too. I should add that many of these tips were recommendations I received from readers on Instagram! A big thank you to those who helped us out–you guys are lifesavers!
As Naiya continues to grow by the minute, I’m trying to capture as many of her looks as I can before she grows out of them! Sharing a mom and baby style post today that includes a pink flamingo dress on Naiya and the coziest sweater I’ve been wearing on repeat this season. Rounding up where to snag our looks and how to style them. The best part? This sweater comes in tiny sizes for your mini too and it’s on big time sale.
