May 2nd & 3rd I did double duty. A Friday gig DJ’ing at Republic in Vancouver and then Saturday day DJ’ing in LA. Then it was back to NYC Sunday night for a Monday morning shoot with French Fashion Blogger Garance Doré and UK Brand Whistles. More to come on that today!

As soon as I landed in Vancouver I worked on my set and took a nap. Then it was dinner with the promoter/DJ and my friends, Jay Swing and his boo Bre Wallace (with their adorable little one).

Later on, we landed in Los Angeles and ad to pick up a Hertz rental which was so surreal. You basically video chat with a representative. So next.

I plugged my phone into the rental for some tunes and this song popped up. I was like, “whoa, am I still in Paris and what station is playing this song?” Then I realized it was my phone because I own this song. So bizarre.vashtie_vancouver_LA_4201422You know I stopped at Cafe Gratitude for some food. It’s my favorite place in LA to eat.

vashtie_vancouver_LA_4201423My dear friend Karl sent some lovely things. We sipped on it Sunday morning while my friend Casper took some great quick portraits of me.
