This has been a completely crazy last 5 days! I’m glad I finally get to rest for the rest of the week (for the most part). The main reason it’s been so hectic is because of a photoshoot I styled for The Refinery Magazine at a lovely winery on Monday, which was probably the biggest production I’ve ever taken part in. It was loads of fun and I can’t wait to see the finished product in January! Enjoy this behind the scenes pic in the meantime.

Here it is! Our Venice Beach photoshoot from the August issue of Ellements Magazine. The team really knocked it out of the park with this one, and I’m still in love with some of the swimsuits I pulled!
Funny story — they were actually shooting this video at the same time, in some of the same locations. So catchy, I love it!

For Ellements Magazine
It’s October (where did the year go?), which means one thing — Halloween is just around the corner. So in the spirit of everything spooky, here are seven delightfully creepy stories from the internet, most of which are 100% “true”.
ANASI’S GOATMAN STORY
My absolute favorite, the creepiest of creepypasta, is this disturbing true account of this 4chan users experience with a local legend called the goatman. Long and full of grammar mistakes but completely worth it. [read here]
THE SMILING MAN
If you’re an avid reader of creepy pasta then you’ve probably already familiar with this story, which originated on the subreddit No Sleep. If not, it’s a must read because it’s plausible enough to actually happen and has an antagonist you won’t be able to get out of your mind. [read here]
Another “true” story, and an absolutely bizarre one at that. An account of one family being stalked by a doctor. [read here]
This true story will make you afraid to ever drive home at night again. [read here]
ONE MAN HIDE AND SEEK
An oldie but a goodie. Don’t try this at home, kids. [read here]
HUMANS CAN LICK TOO
One of my favorite creepy stories, dating back to the classic Scary Stories to Tell In the Dark. More funny than scary but with a cool twist. [read here]
RUSSIAN SLEEP EXPERIMENT
A classic creepy pasta that’s so intense and well written you won’t be able to peel your eyes away from it. [read here]
