Barbie Creations

Browsing around online I came across a jewelry designer who makes, Barbie Jewelry.
No, not jewelry for Barbie....Jewelry made of Barbie.

The designer, Margaux Lange, uses donated Barbies to create necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, and brooches.

A Barbie Butt Bracelet would go great with any outfit!

Or Silver Nipples, definitely a conversation starter!

Personally, I'm captivated by the creativity.
The line of jewelry is a unique idea and I admire her success.

To see more such as Ken's six pack ring or Barbies ears earrings.

Life Ball

One of my favorite jobs I've ever worked was Life Ball.
Life Ball is a HUGE annual AIDS charity event that goes on in Vienna Austria.
The event takes place at the city hall building.
They build a huge stage that extends far out from the building.
But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Before I go any further I want to express how upset I am!
I had a horrible camera at the time and have very few pictures from the event =[
Merely writing doesn't do the event justice, matter of fact, neither do pictures!
But I'll try my best.

So it all started with our plane ride there.
We had an entire commercial airliner all to ourselves!
Which came with free drinks, even alcoholic ones, and snacks. And believe me, people took well advantage of the open bar.
The nicest part was I had an entire row of chairs to myself. I made a make shift bed and napped the whole way there. Well, that was until a very drunk Andre J sat on my head.

Once we arrived there was a red carpet rolled out at our plane door. There were celebrities on the plane, one being Amanda Lepore.
Next we checked into our hotels, had fittings, and a welcoming cocktail party.
The event hosts a wide range of performances. From dancers to singers, to speeches, to fashion shows, and so on. I was a part of the sexy Agent Proovocateur lingerie fashion show.

The next day was show day!
All of city hall was cleared out for the event. There was a huge stage built coming out of the building to the outside. Where a crowd of 20,000+ people gathered. The whole event was packed with celebrities. Also, the event was a costume party! All of the guests arrived in costumes. And extravagant costumes at that! It put halloween to shame.

To be honest, I don't know much about what went on during the show. I never got to see it =[
But I do know that it was crazy! Dancers, singers, performers of all kinds.
Then it came time for our sexy Agent Provocateur lingerie show.

After the entire show had finished was a huge party. There were 9 different areas within city hall that were all like a different night clubs. Their own djs, bars, dancers, and crowd. It went well into the morning! I didn't leave till 6 something AM.

After that we got breakfast, headed to the airport, and traveled back to America.
It was one big party weekend. One of the best jobs I've ever been hired for.
And an experience I'll NEVER forget.

A little gross, I know. But oil stains are totally a hot accessory!

Look Back: Hong Kong

Since I started blogging a good time after I started modeling, there's a few good stories I haven't shared.
One being, my trip to Hong Kong.
I was signed with Style Model Management and lived there for 3 months.

It's really hard to describe 3 months in an Asian country in a blog post.
There's so much to explain.
Modeling, entertainment, and a completely different culture.
So I've broke it down to a list of Pro's and Con's.
Things I liked about Hong Kong, and things I didn't.

- Work
Hong Kong had a ton of work. I was working at least 2 times every week. For those who aren't familiar with modeling, that's a good amount. I'm not talking about castings either, I'm talking about actual jobs. Also, I don't recall once ever getting paid in trade. Trade (getting clothing instead of money) is pretty common in Nyc.

- Clubs
I had some of the most fun I've ever had going out in HK. Models got serious hook ups there. Free food, free entry, free drinks. I spent one night hanging out with the LA Galaxies, the LA soccer team! I even got to go to a Tiesto concert on the beach!

- Cheap
While I was there the exchange rate was ridiculous. 1 US Dollar = 7.5 HK Dollars. I really wish I would have done more shopping!

- English
Hong Kong used to be a British Colony. So while they do speak Cantonese (Chinese language) they also speak English! Pretty much everything is written in English as well.

- Subway
The subway system there was AMAZING. I never knew how much a good subway mattered. But they have it mastered. Everything is so easy from boarding to paying to transferring to exiting the station. It's also super clean and kinda artsy. Nyc is really lagging.

- Activities
There's a ton of things to do in Hong Kong. You can visit temples. This is one that was across the street from the model apartment where I lived.

I visited Disney Land there!

The city also had a mountain top, Victoria's Peak, that was the highest spot in the city. You could see all around. Sadly, I had a horrible camera.

- Smelly
I HATE going to china town in nyc. Why? Because it smells like dead fish and other random putrid unknown smells that hits you like a tsunami. Hong Kong smells the same way. Granted there are a lot of areas that aren't so bad, but then there are a lot of areas that are. Really. Bad.

- Food
Here in America I LOVE Chinese food. But Chinese food in China is not Chinese food as we know it. First, they have a lot less health regulations than in America. When I was there, there was some recall on pastries for having anti freeze in them. There's a lot of markets that have live animals and inserts and wiggly squirmy things that you can go pick out to eat. I remember walking through one once that had live snakes. Also, it's perfectly acceptable to burp.

- Pollution
The first thing I noticed when I got out of the airport is how grey the sky is. It's from air pollution. There's always a haze.

- Price Haggle
To some price haggling would be in the Pros list. Not for me. In America if an item is a certain price than it is that price. There's no negotiating. In HK it's weird not to haggle. Which was a very uncomfortable thing for me to do. I often avoided buying things just for that reason. However, HK does have a ton of street markets that are a lot of fun to walk around and dig through.

I'm really angry I didn't have a better camera while I was there.
Overall Hong Kong was an amazing experience and the good far out weighed the bad.
I'll upload a new post soon with editorials from Hong Kong.
