LA's Hottest Trainer 2015 Contestant #1: Ryan Adams, Mansion Fitness

Positivity is power. “My dad always had the outlet of fitness to decompress and let whatever energy he was dealing with out in a positive way.

Fitness empowered me and changed my life.” Ryan Adams, Mansion Fitness

It’s okay to go with the flow. “I observe the energy present in each class and surrender to its flow. If it requires me to be a bit more harsh and curse a bit more, then I acquiesce. If the collective energy requires more patience of me, then I am kinder.” Ricardo Vargas, Barry’s Bootcamp

Gucci Luxurious Lipstick in “Iconic Red” “The color is so classic red, like from the golden era in Hollywood in late ’20s and ’30s that Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow, and Norma Shearer would wear. But the texture is so deluxe smooth and semi-shiny.”—Riku Campo, who works with Cindy Crawford

Lancôme Color Design Lipcolor in Red Stiletto “It’s a full coverage lipstick, so the color and pigmentation really deliver. The color lasts all day, and my clients really enjoy the silky quality. They always comment on how good it feels.”—Robert Greene, who works with Tinashe and Samira Wiley

Rouge Dior Lipstick 999 “It’s just the perfect hue of red—not too blue not too orange, just your perfect classic red. And it looks good on everyone, and any skin tone. I have yet to put it on someone where it doesn’t look amazing.”—Sabrina Bedrani, who works with Kirsten Dunst and Heidi Klum

Colourpop Lipstick in Behr Hug “It looks great on everyone, and it’s named after my friend and client Beth Behrs.”—Jamie Greenberg, who works with Tracee Ellis Ross

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella “It’s actually a jumbo sized pencil that gives you the application of a lipstick, but in pencil crayon form. It’s super saturated and glides on easily. It’s matte, but non-drying, and the color is the perfect scarlet red.”—Daniel Chinchilla, who works with Ariana Grande

Tatcha Kyoto Red Silk Lipstick “It’s the perfect shade of red—semi matte and very hydrating.”—Jenny Kanavaros, who works with Sky Ferreira

Fresh Sugar Cherry Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 “It’s a universal red with plenty of pigment, but since it’s more of a stain, it can be worn without a mess through the day, on a date, or alone without any other makeup. It’s also delightful as a buddy to any other red; it can be layered over a deeper color to make it pop. It’s very versatile and feels delightful. If that’s not enough, it also has SPF 15 in it!”—Tamah, who works with Mary Steenburgen

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl “This is an oldie but a goodie. I love the velvety matte finish.”—Debra Ferullo, who works with Drew Barrymore

Missing You

Missing You


Whenever I feel delighted, I always find myself suddenly frowning.

I wish you we’re here with me, enjoying this beautiful world together.

I do miss you. I really do.

Remembering every bit of you, I can feel my soul being ignited. Your scent that drives me fanatical. Your touch that secures me. Your stare that melts me. Your words that enthuse me. Your smile that completes me.

I may be lonely day by day but my heart never felt that I’m in solitude. Whenever I’m alone, I close my eyes and there I can see you.  I know that your love is with me. I can feel you. I wish I could just close my eyes ‘til the day you’ll be here by my side, again.

You are my greatest consolation. The photograph of you can feed my hungry soul.  You are my everyday vitamin. You’re making me strong . You nourishes my heart. You’re the cause why I stand with no fright and hesitation. Every time you give me your smiles, you brought me to a thousand miles.

Your love’s always been true and unconditional. You’re always there for every good times and bad times that I have gone through. That’s the reason why I gave this heart to you. I believe that we are meant to weep and laugh together. You are incomparable. No one in this world can replace you from my heart.

Silhouette of Girl against Overcast Sky

Now, I’m alone again and the thought of you came flashing right in my mind again. You and I intertwined right in my heart everyday. This made my day a treasure and that gave me such pleasure.

I always believe that our love will last forever. That our love for each other will never fade. I know you feel the same way and I do trust your love.
