My i.am + BUTTONS Experience

A couple of months ago I got the chance to meet up with will.i.am ‘s team and see all the amazing things his tech company  i.am + is working on, including their latest launch the wireless earphones BUTTONS. And they are amazing! Right away I loved the design and got excited to work together to introduce you guys my new favorite tech + fashion accessory all in one!

As a blogger and a woman who loves fashion, I always make sure my style is reflected in everything I wear —I’m saying truly down to the smallest detail! So it makes sense that someone would come up with earbuds that actually look good with your outfit right?? Well here comes BUTTONS to save the day…

That said, I also spend a lot of time on my phone so even thought I love listening to my favorite songs, it’s not just about the music. I mean a girl has to work right?? And that’s why I truly love these. I can take calls on them too, which comes in handy when I’m running around all day, from shoot to shoot and I have scheduled call meetings in between —to which I never get used to lol (that’s just my personality) but this definitely helps the process go by smoother. Plus, the sound is crisp clear! So it’s a win-win.

All in all I can’t help but love my BUTTONS. And I had the best time shooting with the team. We met up at some of my favorite places in LA, we shot a quick video, took some fun photos and they were all incredibly nice and easy to work with! Which I always appreciate, it made the experience even better. ***Also, I had posted the video we did, but I had some issues with it loading on this page, so I will post it again on a separate one… stay tuned! But I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did and please let me know what you think!

As always thanks so much for reading!

Behind the scenes: Commercial Shoot

Hi Everyone,

         Hope your weekend was fun! Im sorry I haven’t been posting this past week, its been kind of busy lately but now that Spring Break is here I can finally relax, drink my rose tea and do what I love most, write on my blog!

Okay so last Thursday I got to do something really cool, I heard the Cool Kids from Echosmith were shooting a commercial for Jeep and I just had to go! Growing up my parents always kept a musical environment around the house, anywhere from classical music to 70’s rock, to my mom’s favorite latin music, which she would dance and twirl to all day long. Even as we kept moving from city to city we would add new music from every place we’d been; it became a little tradition of ours. And of course today its still a big part of who I am, I just love finding new bands to listen to and Echosmith has beautiful songs and simply the best vibes. So when I heard about their commerciaI, I immediately told my friend Karen from Little Black Shell and we got ready for a night of singing, dancing and behind the scenes fun;) It was really interesting to see how everything actually gets done. As a consumer you only get to see the perfect end result, but having experienced it from the other side I can see its really hard work! The director kept shooting from every possible angle, trying to keep us (the crowd) excited and energetic while trying to direct the band, focus on lighting and sound. They must have played their song Bright about 30 consecutive times until they got the shot they needed and as you can imagine Im dying to see the end result! At the end they gave us a private concert which closed with huge balloons full of confetti flying all over the set, it was so much fun! But of course, being a Fashion Blogger the part I loved the most was observing the makeup & style artist. She would go around fixing the four siblings before each and every take, making sure they were all scene perfect;) The vocalist Sydney Sierota was wearing a gorgeous white lace top and skirt combo with scalloped edges, a statement necklace and cut out oxford shoes which I loved!! Her make up was rose gold mixed with earthy tones which complimented her skin perfectly and a contagious lively attitude to go with it;)

I realize this was a different direction from what I usually post about, but I just love trying new things. I believe in being open to new opportunities so even if its not exactly fashion related, I still found it very interesting and enjoyed seeing the side of production, styling, filming and just event planing all together and I hope you did too;) I’ll be blogging about more Fashion Events this week so follow along for more!

Thanks for reading,

Love, Erika
