That's just the way I roll (:
Nineteen things I’ve learned before I turned nineteen.
1. Always carry $5 and a lighter with you (even if you don’t smoke).
2. Ask every person you meet how their day is going. Genuinely ask with the soul intention of learning how their day is. Ask the coffee shop employee. Ask the person next to you in line at Walmart. Ask your distant friend. Ask everyone.
3. Take many photos of yourself. Take photos of yourself when you’re happy. Take photos of yourself when you’re sad. Take photos of yourself because there are millions of trees in the world, and we all look at the same sky, but there is only one of you.
4. Stay in contact with your parents. Try not to hate them. They are the reason you have the ability to feel anything at all. Try not to hate your parents.
5. Opening your skin will not set your demons free. Open your heart. Open your mind. Open your hands.
6. Nobody knows anybody completely. That’s okay.
7. Be gentle, but be aggressive. Take a stand. Nobody hears your voice if you stay silent.
8. Respect everybody. We are all humans trying to survive. We all deserve respect.
9. Wearing black will ALWAYS make you feel better about yourself.
10. Always give tips, whether it be a couple extra dollars or a piece of mind. You never know how much you could be helping someone.
11. Change is the only thing consistent in life. Do not allow that bother you. Embrace chance and move with life, whichever direction it chooses to take you.
12. Smile often. Smile at strangers. Smile at your friends. Smile when nobody is looking and you’re alone in your bedroom. Smile when somebody is rambling to you.
13. Body image means nothing. Your body is merely just a seatbelt in the car. Your body is here to protect you. You choose the direction you go, and your body will not hold you back. Only you can hold yourself back.
14. Don’t hold grudges. Don’t allow yourself to hate anybody. Forgive them. Learn to love them for the person you never got to see them to be. Believe that a beautiful human exists in that person. Wish them well.
15. Drink orange juice. Lot’s of it.
16. Don’t allow the opinions of others to choose your destiny. We are all simply trying to live our own life.
17. Sing all the time. Sing off key. Sing in a silly voice. Sing like you’re on stage. Sing no matter who is around. Singing is breathing for the soul. Sing.
18. Take time to think. Write your feelings down. Write letters to the people you love. Texting is overrated and not as heartfelt as a nice handwritten letter.
19. Live for yourself. Breathe for yourself. Do everything in your life for nobody but you. This is your life. This is it.

Brazilian model Alexandre Cunha was paired with a three-year-old moptop to showcase Smalto’s matching child-sized and adult tuxedos. Unfortunately, while the pressure of performing didn’t faze the buff Brazilian, his partner broke down in tears as they were striding the catwalk:

Once, I was supposed to close a show with a 3-year-old kid and we both had matching outfits. During rehearsal, everything went as planned, but on the day of the show he started crying halfway down the runway, so in my head I thought, “What am I supposed to do?!” I ended up picking him up and I carried him to the end of the runway.

awwww

Let me tell you something about this man right here. This is Alexander DeLeon, lead singer of The Cab. Now, I planned a weekend trip to LA to see one of his basketball games with the Hollywood Knights, but the game ended up being postponed. Alex tweeted me and said he’d take me to lunch if the game wasnt happening. That’s the first amazing thing about him: he actually gave a shit that I was flying across the entire country and he didnt want me to be disappointed. His plans changed closer to the day that was supposed to be the basketball game, so lunch wasn’t going to work out. Instead of being like “oops that sucks try again next time” he waited for my flight to land and got food with me first thing when I got into LA. My flight landed at 11:20pm and I didnt even get out of the airport till around midnight. Keep in mind, he had just come back from Italy like two days before so his time zones were even more messed up than mine and he admitted to not having slept for two nights AND he had a four hour drive coming up early in the morning. Even so, he took the time to sit at a diner with me (and my friends that I’m staying with) for two hours in the middle of the night, show us some of the new album, and just hang out. He even paid for our food. I can’t stress enough how absolutely out of his way he went for me and how fucking lucky I am. He was incredibly nice to the waitress, too. Like that’s something I always feel strongly about, how people treat waiters or people serving you in general and holy shit there wasn’t a hint of arrogance anywhere in this man’s body. He told me multiple times how he was so glad I made it and happy he could at least do something for me and how upset he was that the game was cancelled. I can’t even put into words how much I look up to him and how much faith he gives me in humanity because he’s just so god damn nice. I can’t name another band out there who has a lead singer that would put so much effort into making sure a fan was happy with her experience. So this is Singer and I, at 2am PST (5am my time) after I had gotten off a 5.5 hour flight and sat in a diner with him for two hours picking his brain. And here I am writing a sappy post about it at 7am because my body thinks its time to wake up. All I really can say is he makes me so fucking happy.
