Mai Sensational Saturday
It all started with the best kinda kickstart- a romp up Runyon Canyon with my homeslice Melissa. Here’s why it was awesome. a) she didn’t flake (www.zipit.com Katie and Sarah. b) she let me know she was afraid of heights when we got here.
c) We made it to my prayer box to shove some luv someone’s way…and look adorable to take this.
After a quick VO session, I jammed across town to enjoy the next part of my super day- a photoshoot set up with my smashin in fashion studmuffin stylist Sam Russel. Not only was he styling me up with his saucy picks, but he was joined with an incredible team of professionals I have to blog about cuz these humble gents won’t pop their own collars. We’ve got Mr. Jeff Jones, an incredible artist who painted my face and rocked my locks like I’ve never seen, an adorable assistant James John Jetel who tended to us with his picture perfecting eye and warm hospitality, and a fabulous Eric Raptosh, a photographer extraordinaire who brought all the elements of my style, my emotions, his vision, to life.
Thank you gentlemen. These pictures barely describe all the wonderful work these boys put into the entire day, so you’ll just have to make it back here to see the fantastic pics. And guess what– I’m not the only one that can get blessed with Eric Raptosh’s wicked talented eye, you too can get a memorable shot of yourself, and for a terrific cause. Eric will be generously donating his time to perform Headshots For Haiti, a perfect opportunity for you talents (or anyone who just wants to have your own clicks for a cause) to get your headshots taken for a donated price. Sign up fast- as the offer is only tomorrow, Monday 2/15.
And finally what better way to top off the night than to gather together with all my fans for the Mai-never-censored, always edu-taining-Live Chat. I just posted the video here below for those of you that missed it, along with links for mai must-haves mentioned.
