VLOG 2 : KANSAS CITY FASHION WEEK CRUISE 2017 – MIAMI, KEY WEST, COZUMEL

HELLO! Thanks so much for tuning in to my second ever vlog. I am obviously still getting the hang of being comfortable talking to the camera in public which is why I’m so awkward at times but I’ll get better. I am so blessed to have been invited on the first official Kansas City Fashion Week Cruise trip. We had an amazing team and I had so much fun. I am hoping that KCFW does something like this again soon!

#KCFW Cruise 2017 – Day 5 : ON BOARD

Today was our last day on the cruise and we spent all day and night at sea from Cozumel to Miami. Everyone relaxed and did whatever on the ship and then at night we all joined together for our formal, and last dinner. I am so thankful that I got the opportunity to go on this wonderful trip. I got to get a lot closer to everyone and learned a lot. Stay tuned to see my vlog go live on Youtube soon to get a better look at everything!

#KCFW Cruise 2017 – Day 4 : COZUMEL

Hello from Cozumel! This was my first time ever going to Mexico! It was so pretty and we all had a blast. The water was so blue and salty and the beaches were beautiful and the best place for our photoshoot. Since this is a cruise, we are on a set schedule and couldn’t stay here for a long time so I definitely want to come back to Cozumel in the future.

For today’s shoot, we had caftans from Alicia Janesko and a couple bathing suits from LV Swim. Like I said earlier, this beach was the perfect spot!

#KCFW Cruise 2017 – Day 3 : KEY WEST

Day three is here and today we docked in Key West, Florida. I have never been to the Keys and this place was absolutely gorgeous. We shot a couple of looks right as we got off the boat. I modeled today and wore a top by Maria Behnen. We also shot some Kansas City Chiefs shirts because they are one of Kansas City Fashion Week’s official sponsors.

After we were finished shooting we all could go explore the city. Key West is beautiful! As much as I love black and more edgy city environments, it’s so refreshing to change the scenery.

After walking around Key West for a while, we boarded back on our ship and hung around (napped, lol) until an amazing dinner!

#KCFW Cruise 2017 – Day 2 : ON BOARD

We left Miami and boarded our cruise ship this morning! This is my first cruise ever and I’m a bit nervous but mostly excited. We are aboard the Carnival Sensation Ship and it is huge with lots to do. Today we just hung out starting with a full team breakfast in Miami and dinner on the ship. No official business took place but tomorrow we will be shooting a lot at our next destination, Key West.
