Sleep? What's that?
Worked a 15 hour work shift yesterday, and it couldn't have made me prouder. .
My 9-5, makes things happen for those who are hungry, homeless and struggling in NYC.
Yesterday was our annual Valentine's Day Gala, and @tainadaniela and I had to pull up with a little bit flow and a lot of curls.
PS. Can we all just agree that dresses with pockets are BOMB AF!?
Since its inception in 1965, the Petroushka Ball has been one of New York's most important Russian-American events, attended by over 700 guests representing business, artistic and diplomatic spheres. Past Petroushka Ball events have featured leading soloists of the Metropolitan Opera, the American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Bolshoi Theater, and other prominent companies.
All net proceeds from the 54th Petroushka Ball will be directed towards the Russian Children’s Welfare Society (RCWS) charitable programs. Founded in 1926, the RCWS is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children at risk in Russia. Among RCWS projects are college scholarships for orphans (currently 153 students), medical treatment for children with severe facial deformities (annually over 200 little patients receive surgeries), assistance to orphanages, rehabilitation programs for children with special needs, a “Yelka” (a Christmas and New Year celebration) in Moscow for over 1,000 disadvantaged children visiting from many areas of Russia; and other programs⠀#petroushkaball#petroushka#petroushkaball2019#petrushka#петрушка#петрушкабал#плазаотель#plazahotel#plazahotelnyc

Spent last Valentines Day with this one covered in red dirt in a Chick-fil-A outside of Sedona. Honored to spend this one from the invitation of friends to support an incredible organization here in NYC. A+ Date in any setting, @madisonbaumann.
Is it even Valentines Day without an IG post? No. Happy Valentines to my hunky 🍯! Thank you for putting up with everything and loving me through it! ❤️ You will always have my flower and my final rose 🌹#3yearsstrong#valentine

Sitting across from me at the Plaza Hotel, he described how crazy and hectic his life had always been, entering the New York finance frenzy at a very young age. “When I saw her eyes for the first time, it was a feeling of peace and calm,” he shared (his face showing this very same peace and calm). “It was the first time I’d felt that, and now every time I feel like life is really hectic, I just need to look into her eyes. They are magical.” We scoured the earth to find an aqua blue diamond the same hue as her eyes, which we gleaned from her instagram photos. And this was just the beginning...More on this story tomorrow, in honor of our reunion tonight #theaspenring
Damn. Today, I turned 24. I’m not at all the person that I thought I would be, and that’s probably my favorite thing about myself. Thank you all for the birthday wishes! 🖤💜♒️ If you want to give me gift, please donate to my crisis hotline! @crisistextline ❤️

So there’s one little secret I have to tell you. One of the first times I realized I was in love with NY was when I was about 6 years old and I watched one of my favorite movies ever: Home Alone 2! In the picture you can see the Plaza Hotel :) Since then I dreamed one day to come and live here ❤️ I took this shot on Sunday morning... some sun waiting for the snow! Happy Tuesday! #newyork_eyes#plazahotel#centralpark

🇪🇸The Plaza Hotel en Nueva York es el mejor lugar para tomar un té y comerte un postre con un ambiente especial e increíble: morí con los macarrones OMG 😯! (La torta también! No me malinterpretes 😂) buen spot para fotos o para reuniones... no hay música loca de fondo y te puedes concentrar.

Honestly, just skip the first 2 flicks and read the following notes I posted. I had such writers block trying to capture everything about my experience as an asian American and I wanted to do it justice. So, I know it’s long but I swear it’s worthwhile and I hope my words resonate with you. and of course, happy lunar new year to those who celebrated it! keep your pride strong ❣️
❗️FYI, I’m fine. I just wanted to shed some light on the reality that many are uncomfortable with speaking about. At this point, we honestly should be able to open up more conversations on race, culture, and alladat.
Much needed “me time” during a crazy busy week - @oldspice all-new Fresher Collection gives men more options in the shower (or bath) to have the soft and smooth skin that we deserve... this is my new fav Exfoliating with Charcoal body wash, highly recommend. #menhaveskintoo
Date night, surrounded by the most exquisitely arranged orchids. #orchiddinner

“To prepare, I watched one too many hours of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’” said @annefrances, shown here in a photograph by @kristaschlueter, on her role on @schittscreek. “I studied the Olsen twins.” She plays the character of Alexis Rose, a fallen socialite whose family loses everything in a Bernie Madoff-esque Ponzi scheme, who says goodbye to her wild life on the international party scene and moves from an affluent neighborhood in an unspecified city to the small town of Schitt’s Creek. Read about how she (almost) got kicked out of The Plaza hotel.
