Toodles LA, Hello New York!
Check the vid above to see my first REAL LIFE collab with Bex!!!! We did a healthy Q&A sesh. Now onto my LA trip recap…
Friday afternoon, I had the honor of meeting ExoticJess – she’s a YouTube superstar and female comedian. We met at a YouTube meetup a couple months ago in San Bruno and I wasn’t sure if I ever would ever see her pretty face again! It was REALLY difficult to plan out a time to meet between her crazy schedule and my meetings but we made it happen! We ended up chattin it up at Stout in Hollywood and had the most AMAZING quinoa and white bean burger I have ever had! We both skipped the bread and opted for just the patty on top of arugula. It was FAB. I then met her lovely daughter who does POP Pilates workouts (wow, so flattered!) and she said that she’s been sore for the past couple days because of me. Haha, I love hearing that. Good work Corinne!
One of these days Jess and I will get a workout filmed for you guys! It would be pretty epic!
OK you caught me. Taking pics and driving. But, after a week of being on set, being around producers, directors, and meeting with tons of YouTube personalities, I felt like I wasn’t just in Hollywood – I felt a little bit a part of it 🙂
I left for NYC Friday night on a red eye flight (the best kind) and I slept the WHOLE WAY. It was amazing. Then I caught the subway all the way into Manhattan. I went for a run on the Hudson River and got ready for my first ever meeting with Bex from Bexlife on YouTube. We developed a friendship via our first collab back several months ago and I am so happy to say that she’s just as cool in real life as she is on YouTube, email, skype, and phone!
We ate at Dos Caminos near or in the Meat Packing District. I had a chicken cobb salad and Bex has Huevos Rancheros. That thing was HUGE. I did not finish it unfortunately!
It was sooooo cool gushing over everything with Bex! It wasn’t weird at all meeting her for the first time because I felt like I knew her, which I do!!! Thanks to this internet world, I can make friends before I even physically see them. I am so thankful for YouTube’s global reach. Interacting with you guys is so much fun and I can’t wait to continue doing more and more for you. I want to be able to make more videos on a consistent basis – this is something I need to seriously work on. It’s not like I don’t want to – it’s more like a time allocation problem. I gotta figure this out…I wanna make those FOOD Bites vids again. More weekly workouts.
Are there any types of vids you wanna see me do more of? Just workouts? Food? Inspirational? Motivational? Style? Let me know. Your comments DIRECTLY affect what I do and what you see. Lemme know!
Much love and enjoy the rest of your weekend. I’ll be exploring more of NYC tomorrow before the Shorty Awards on Monday night. Eek!!! I need to get a dress to wear…
