Welcome to my blog and/or blog post, all! It’s finally Easter today and I finally am getting around to doing a post for Easter. I haven’t ever, yet, posted an Easter post on my blog so I’m glad I finally am getting to today! This photoshoot & blog post includes this pretty white striped midi dress of mine that I thought would be perfect for Easter, as well as my gold & black Gucci glasses and finally my purple Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipstick & lipglass (my favorite lipstick of all time). I’m finally getting those up in (a/another) blog post too! Finally, I also did this shoot with Kwame, around Pike’s Place Market in Seattle. We thought it would be cool to do another photoshoot in Seattle, so we went and did that around midnight last night. So this post was actually done on Easter Sunday which is cool! I think it turned out pretty awesome. I love going to Seattle with Kwame, we always go the club every week or a concert or whatever and we do a lot of fun stuff, I love it. I’m so glad he and I have been friends for so long! I love getting to hangout with him every week. Anyway, everything is going super awesome for me and I love how things have been going in my life, there’s so many good things that I can focus on or look forward to or whatever which is awesome. I’m so appreciative of so many things in life. I make awesome progress with everything, too, which I talk about sometimes. Let’s get into the post!

Easter Sunday 2023 White Striped Dress Blog Post Featuring Kwame

I love how I’ve been doing with all my gold shoots, starting last month. I finally replaced all my silver jewelry in my face with gold jewelry! Since then, I’ve been only wearing gold and I love it. I’m finally shooting like all my gold jewelry that I have and everything, too, which has been awesome. I also definitely loved including these Rocksbox gold dangly hoop-type earrings in this photoshoot, you can see them the best in the first collage of pictures. They’re small gold hoops with 3 dangly bars hanging off of each of them and I got them in like 2018 from Rocksbox. They’re awesome! The rest of my gold jewelry looks awesome in this outfit, too. I’m glad I finally was able to shoot my Gucci glasses, again, too. I’ve only basically included them in 1 and a half other shoots to this day, because I forget about them sometimes, but I love them and they’re gold! I love how many gold Gucci things I have, like including my purse of course too. You can kind of see my purse in this photoshoot but not really, but I always love my purse for sure! Plus, I’m glad my hair is still kind of red. It’s fading a little, but it’s still red of course. I didn’t think to wear my extensions with it though because it is a little more faded than it looks here, so it wouldn’t have matched as well! Oh well, that’s okay, this shoot still turned out pretty good. Now let’s get into the collages next, I’m glad I was able to get something done for Easter!

Outfit Details for my ‘Easter’ Photoshoot:

  • White striped midi dress from the brand A+ Ellen. I love this dress, and it’s also one of my favorites sometimes. It’s casual and everything but still super cute! I also love how long this one is as well.
  • Long beige/brownish & cream colored fur coat from the brand Faded Glory. I got this jacket from my friend’s place in 2019ish, and it’s huge but super warm, I love it. I also wore it briefly in Valentine.
  • Black sneakers (with LPU7 shoelaces & socks) from the brand Vans and also Linkin Park Underground merch for the laces. I also wore these in Playground from 2021 and in 2020’s Emotional Support.
  • Black & gold eye frames/glasses by the brand Gucci that I got in 2021. I love my glasses but I don’t wear them all too much. I was glad to get them into this photoshoot though, that was awesome!
  • GG Marmont small black leather shoulder bag $2,550 by Gucci that you can kind of see in some pics, especially in that first collage. I really love my purse, I got it for Christmas of 2022 from my mom!
  • Gold dangly hoop earrings from Rocksbox in like 2018, I love these gold earrings! They’re small gold hoops with 3 little bars dangling off of each earring, you can mostly see them in the first collage.
  • Two mis-matched gold stud earrings, one is a sparkly gold bar stud earring and the other one a gold coin stud. I love these studs, I got them both from my friend in like 2020 which was pretty cool.
  • Gold, white & sparkly long chain necklace that I wrapped around my neck for two-layers of it. I love this big chain necklace, it’s really long and awesome. I’ve been wearing it a bunch these days too.
  • Tiger’s Eye gold & sparkly ring on my finger next to my heart tattoo, which is my favorite ring of all-time sometimes. I love it, & I got it from my friend for $80 back in 2019 which is pretty awesome.
  • Handcuff & gold key sparkly anklet from Dolls Kill in 2021 on my ankle, which ended up being the perfect gold anklet! I was so glad when I bought this, because it fits my ankle perfectly & I love it.
  • (Not Pictured) Sparkly & gold bangle bracelet around my arm, and a cream colored & gold clasp bracelet around my wrist as well. I didn’t take my jacket off, but these were cute bracelets with it anyway.
  • Barb dark/medium colored blue nail polish with some grey in it by Julep with dew drop stickers on 4 nails as well. This is a really pretty color, but Julep discontinued all their nail polish a while ago.
  • Miss Dior eau de parfum by Dior for the shoot also since it’s an Easter photoshoot. I thought this perfume went with it pretty well, it’s a pretty one. I have the 5ml dabber/mini of it from Sephora.
  • Perk Up Dry Shampoo $34 by Amika that I got as a mini from Sephora for my birthday last year. This is not a bad dry shampoo overall! I might repurchase this, I’m not exactly sure yet. We’ll see!

Makeup Details for my ‘Easter’ Photoshoot on April 9th, 2023:

  • Pinklipps Soft Matte Primer $18 that I got from Ipsy last year. This is a pretty good primer overall, I like the texture of this one! It works pretty well, I think, too, and looks pretty good as well too.
  • Complex Culture Letup Concealer $25 in the shade L200 which is a light shade. This is a pretty decent concealer I got from Ipsy a couple years ago I think. I’m surprised I don’t have less of this!
  • Laura Geller Quench-N-Tint Hydrating Foundation $34 in the shade Light that I got from Ipsy a couple years back. I just noticed recently that this has buildable coverage which is pretty cool too.
  • Reina Rebelde On Your Face Finishing Powder $23 in the shade Almendra. This is a pretty good powder that I got from Ipsy last year, I like it! It went pretty well with the foundation I used also.
  • Iconic London Blazer Chaser Face Palette $55 using the matte bronzer, the light pink blush, and the lightest/cream colored highlight shade. This is a pretty good face palette I got from Ipsy last year.
  • Ciaté London Eye Lustre Glitter Liquid Shadow Topper $22 in the shade Eclectic which is a pretty gold shade, applied just to my lid as the base/lid color. This is a pretty liquid eyeshadow color too.
  • Elizabeth Mott Pop! Goes The Shadow Eyeshadow $13 in the shade Stars At Night that I got in 2019. When I first got this I thought it was magnetic, but it’s not so I just have a random single shadow.
  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner $32 in the shade Black Ink which is my fave gel eyeliner. I used it with this MOTD No Fudge Just Smudge $10 eyeliner brush that I got from Ipsy years ago.
  • House of Lashes Siren False Lashes $9 that I got in like 2015! But I still have them and they’re still good! I used them with this Duo Eyelash Brush-On Adhesive $6 in the shade white/clear, as well.
  • Araceli Beauty Monarca Mascara $19 which I got from Ipsy last year. I’m almost done with this mascara, I’m just using the rest up a bit! I have to throw it away this month though finally too.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer $26 in the shade Auburn. This is one of my favorite brow pencils ever, I always repurchase this one. It’s a pretty neutral auburn color, but I love this one.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Primer $16 which is currently the only lip primer I have but I’m trying to get a new one to try sometime this month or next month maybe! That’ll be good to do finally too.
  • MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil $22 in the light pink shade In Sync which is nearly white. This is such a good lip liner color, I’m not sure why they stopped selling this one! That’s okay, but I love this one.
  • MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick $19 which is my favorite lipstick of all time (especially from MAC)! I love this light purple lipstick shade, it’s so perfect. It was Nicki Minaj’s second one.
  • MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipglass $21 which is the matching lipglass by MAC to go with the lipstick. I’m glad I have both of these, they look so good together! I love Nicki Minaj as well.
  • Urban Decay All Nighter Pollution Protection Setting Spray $34 which is as always, my favorite setting spray. I love this one & I always love pollution protection. It’s discontinued now though.

This photoshoot turned out pretty awesome, I love doing things with Kwame these days. Last month we also did an awesome photoshoot in Seattle called Yayo as well, with a couple of his friends. That one turned out awesome too! I loved that one. I’m so glad I was able to do an Easter one with him, too, though. It was awesome to get to do that! Also, he has been working on some music lately which has been pretty cool, too. I was listening to a couple of his songs the other night, too, and it was perfect that he mentioned Easter in one of his songs called Break Bread! ‘Put a sweet in the grass like it’s close to Easter.’ I love that song, it’s so awesome. He used a picture of us from the club for the picture for it, too, which is pretty cool. So I had to include that song because I thought that would be perfect for this Easter photoshoot! He posted that song last month. Anyway, I have another idea of a shoot him and I could do so maybe we’ll do another one again sometime soon but we’ll see. We’ll see what all we end up doing together within the next month, but that would be cool! I love getting out and doing things downtown with him these days. We’ll see what we end up doing here soon as well! PS – Check out the first photoshoot I did with Kwame from 2019 as well, which was called Live Fast.

That’s it for this blog post, thanks so much for checking me out! I love how my blog has been going these days, I really love my last month or so of posts right now. I’m excited to see what I’ll end up doing next, I do have more ideas for outfits and everything in general. I’m glad I’ve been shooting dresses as much as I have been, lately, too though, because that’s been awesome this year so far. We’ll see what my next post ends up being, I’m glad it’s finally spring as well though too finally! That’ll help, everything heating up will help me for sure within the next couple of months or so. I have at least a few ideas for what’s next, but we’ll see how that ends up working out. Anyway, hopefully I continue to get inspired by things that happen in my life and can come up with something new. Thanks so much for reading, I’ll see you next time! I’m excited to see what happens next in my life.
