I would love to go to the pig beach in Exuma, the Bahamas. I think the pigs are so adorable and I can’t think of anything cooler than swimming in the ocean with them, give me a pig over a shark any day.

A raccoon, I’m a die hard fan of pumpkin the raccoon and I love how they use their hands to eat like people.

7. Has anything/anyone ever saved your life before?

I was on holiday with my family in Phuket, Thailand over Christmas and New Years in 2004. My mum and brother were off scuba diving and my dad and I decided to sleep in an extra 30 minutes that morning. The Boxing Day tsunami hit Phuket around 9.00am just as we were heading to the elevator. Luckily we were fine, as were my mum and brother who were safe out at sea, but had we got into the elevator 5 minutes earlier we would’ve been sat eating breakfast on the beachfront and wouldn’t have been so lucky.

8. What’s your guilty pleasure? 

Talenti Mint Choc Chip Ice Cream!

9. When you eat a pack of candy, do you save the best flavors for last? Or do they go first?

I actually like an even distribution of the best flavours, for example in a starburst pack I’ll eat the pink ones periodically, they’re something to look forward to while suffering through the other colours, so I’ll eat one of every colour before the pink and then restart the cycle-a bit anal I know!

10. What’s the most embarrassing trend that you gave into?

I’m not sure if you could call it a trend, but when I had braces I used to go for yellow and green bands. I thought they were super fun but in hindsight they just looked like I had yellow teeth or food stuck in them.

11. Who was your childhood crush? 

Aaron Taylor-Johnson! He was in a huge teen movie in England called ‘Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging’ and he was just the biggest heart throb.

12. What is the funniest thing that happened to your recently?

I was on a long haul red eye from Los Angeles to London, I always buy a bunch of snacks for the trip because it’s a 12 hour flight. I ended up sitting on a huge, half eaten bar of chocolate and fell asleep. I woke up as we were landing and stood up to disembark the plane and realized I was covered in chocolate. It was too late to use the plane bathroom so I had to shamefully walk all the way to, and through immigration with chocolate all over my butt and the back of my legs. I ended up listening to music with the volume all the way up, just to drown out the people around me laughing under their breath!

Imagine that you have two weeks in Europe to spare, where would you go? What would you see? Well, our girl Alex G. has had the privilege of leaping over the big puddle that is the Atlantic Ocean, and has provided us with a little travel guide in the form of a questionnaire! She has become a true jet-setting queen this past month – take a peek below to discover more from her trip!:

Hi Alex! Welcome home! Where did you travel to?

We visited Paris, Brussels, Florence, Rome, Santorini, and London. Each place was uniquely beautiful. The way they live and eat in Europe is truly something I’ll be dreaming about forever!

Ok, we all know that Europe is known for their amazing meals! What did you eat?

Breakfast in Paris, France

Being the foodie girl that I am, I was in absolute heaven! I mean, European food is on another level! In each place, the food was a bit different than the other, yet all were insanely delicious. There’s a ridiculous overload of the yummiest croissants, cheese and baguette in Paris. 

If you are a beer lover, than Brussels Belgium beer is for you. Florence and Rome’s pizza, pasta, and pretty much any carb you can think of actually changed my life with how delicious they were (And okay we may have also had gelato every single day….way too good for words!)

Santorini had the freshest most amazing fish, because they catch everything locally around the Greek islands. And how could we not be cliché and have lots of tea and sweet treats in London?

There is something so beautiful about how the people of these places take such pride and put so much love into the food they eat. And you really can taste it.

For all the fashionistas out there, what was in your luggage?!

Alex G in Paris, France wearing All-Saints

For what I wore, it was fun to pack cute things that made me feel like I fit in with the fun European fashion! Because in Paris, Brussels, and London, the weather was colder so we had to dress a bit warmer. Brands like All-Saints, Rag & Bone, Zara, John Elliott, Paige, and Levi‘s were all perfect to stay bundled up and comfortable, while still feeling edgy/stylish while exploring.

In Santorini and Italy, the sun was shining so much that is was way easier to run around in sundresses and sandals. I wore brands like Faithful The Brand, Free People, For Love and Lemons, Ulla Johnson, Rèalisation Par, Givenchy, and Madewell. Basically anything that felt fun and flowy was perfect to wear. Each one of these places hold such a big place in my heart.

Alex G in Santorini, Greece rocking her Yasmine Eslami one piece swim suit

All of these places sound amazing, but one had to stand out among the rest. What was your favorite spot that you visited?

If I had to choose my favorite place that we visited, it would probably be Santorini. Greece is unlike anywhere I have ever been. It’s almost like a different world. To see such a beautiful island surrounded by the bluest water was insane! The blues and whites are something you can only dream of seeing. I truly felt so lucky to be able to wake up to such a magical place and experience it for a few days.

For all those out there that are looking to make the journey to Europe, do you have any advice for your fellow wanderlusters? 

Europe is a dream! If you have the opportunity to visit these places, I highly recommend that you do. Traveling offers a new view of the world and of other individuals that is truly so special. The new type of views, people, food, and culture that you will meet will and hold close to your heart forever.

I will definitely be going to visit again soon to experience such wanderlust again!

Sounds like an amazing trip, right? Scroll below to see more photos from her adventure!:

Get to know our very nous model, Megan Martin! ~

Where are you from?

Beautiful mountains of Roanoke, Virginia.

What inspires you the most?

My beautiful mother.

What’s been your greatest achievement (so far)?

Getting my nursing degree (RN). Oh, & owning 60+ bikinis.

Where is the most beautiful place on earth and why?  

If you ask my friends and family, they’ll tell you I fall in love with every place I go.  I feel like there is a different beauty to be found in every place I visit.

Have you overcome one of your fears?

I swam with sharks last week for a shoot!!! P.S. I HATE SHARKS!

How do you kick back and relax?

I wake up early in the morning before anyone else–brew some green tea & read. It’s the best “alone time.”

How would your best friend describe you?

Weird. Very weird. Like super weird. But loyal as a golden retriever (a good golden retriever). 😉

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?  

While I was shooting in the exumas last week, a large pig wouldn’t stop chasing me –keep in mind I was in a bikini & frolicking/running around the island frantically.  I honestly just think he wanted me to take him home. 🐷🐷

If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why?  

Family time.  Family time is such a blessing… life is short– so making memories with the people that love you most could not be any sweeter.

When you eat a pack of Skittles, do you save the best flavors for last? Or do they go first?

I love them all. I don’t discriminate. Try heating them up in the microwave for 25 seconds 😏😏  (makes them gooey & amazing—don’t judge).

Classic cars and a vintage sense of style is the name of the game in Davia Gomez‘s recent spread with Cake Magazine, and we couldn’t be more in love with how it turned out! This shoot features a set of photos that are purely black and white, refueling our passion for old-Hollywood and the sweet rides that once commonly dazzled the streets of southern California- how neat!

In addition, the theme of this spread is titled “Down the Road,” which can reference the always-changing course of trends throughout time. Fashion is constantly revamping itself, and with each generation adding a modern spin, why not take a trip down memory lane to rediscover our roots?!

Davia appears flawless in each shot, bringing an old-school elegance that is hard to duplicate. Not to mention, take a peep at all the amazing booties that she is wearing in this spread! I mean, Marilyn Monroe said it best, “give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Davia is totally out for world domination!
