Hey guys, this past month I was truly reborn. Slowly but surely my dreams are coming true in the strangest, slowest, confusingest ways possible. So the last day of May I dyed my hair this gorgeous dimensional red and I’m obsessed…with that and my labret lip piercing and I finally felt motivation to write today before the crew comes over and helps me do my greatest comeback shoot. Because here’s the thing. Waiting in my queue was basically just some pics of merch, pics of me in my merch and other gadgets, a couple pics of me with my snake, so I want to cram all of this into one so I can 1. Show you guys this cool stuff — it was put in the queue for a reason. Like each of these, or at least half, were supposed to get spotlight blog posts. But now that’s not what’s happening. I want to take you guys on a journey and show you these loads of merch and a couple other cool things about my last blogshoot days of being brunette. Like how I was for 19 years. I have new stories to share, new craziness or possible excitement to share… And now I get to finish cleaning my room before my peeps arrive and that will start this whole big deal and everyone is excited. Like it’s really super cool that people are this excited about being in my blogshoot. It means freakin’ hella! I’m proud of myself and my blog. The last couple of weeks I sunk into one of the deepest depressions of my life…And after a little support, some new friends, a crazy life hijacking twisty-turny slide, a breakup, a few people to get to know better, like 10 mini rocks later given to people and picked out specially with ones that I feel like resonated with that person, even though each time I gave someone a rock it was my way of saying greetings beautiful stranger, I can tell you’re fuckin’ special. Greetings humans, I want nothing but to treat y’all with love and respect. Pluuuus++++ drugs. Producing music videos. Reaching out of my comfort zone. Dangerous stunts. Learning the way to not take things personally. Understanding people. Missing people. Finding myself. And then there’s also that time that I got pics of my little booty in my Lights booty shorts, too.
“Welcome to my Darkness, I’ve been here a while
Clouding up the sunlight, hurting for a smile
Or something, but something always turns into nothing.
Oh, I drain your life ’til there’s nothing left but your bloodshot eyes
Oh, I’ll take my time ’til I show you how I feel inside
Welcome to my Dark Side.”
“Waited a long time for this, feels right now
Allow me to introduce myself. Want you to come a little closer. I’d like you to get to know me better. Meet the real me.” – Stripped pt. 1 (track 1)
I’m in love with Christina Aguilera‘s second album Stripped right now, because each song has played such a big role in the last month that I’ve been dwelling on it, and applying it gently to my situations and creating new perspectives here and there. I’m a lot more aware in so many ways. When I did this shoot I named it Keep On Singin’ My Song because that was the most relatable at that moment, and the way I related to it was on the tail-end of getting over some stupid crap in my life. After March 18th, one of the most beautiful and sentimental and fun and adventurous nights of my life, I finally got my closure, but earlier this month, the only thing that kept me going was to keep on singing these songs. I’m breaking into the music shizz slowly and miss Ivy K. Green is going to help me as we write together (You Don’t Know) and I’m totally gonna have her help me cover some songs for her. I got closure, but now I’m going to keep on singing my songs because I’m so twitter-patted and infatuated with this passionate & pure poison ivy/love of my life and makes taking risks look like just…living. As it should always look of course. Read more.
A month ago, I was sooo on a roll with blog posts. November was awesome for me and my blog and I was not only posting frequently, but thoroughly, and quality-ily. Quailityishful. So anyway then December everything started getting busy and crazy, however I FINALLY got around to editing these two shoots that I did (there was like a trillion pics to edit) and so now I can totally actually begin this journey that is Culture Shock, which is a half-formed idea in my head that’s about to florish. It’s derived of two equal parts, My Prerogative and Can’t Pin Me Down. Let’s see how I grow, live, create, slay and laugh at myself. After finishing this I’m actually extremely proud, and expression is best served passionately.
I feel like each of these Diary things is really different. Don’t be fooled by their names though, even though they’re all “Diary of ___” something different, they’re all basically the same thing. Journal entries in the form of blogging, pictures, online shopping and interacting with people online. Today I wanted to not only have a “diary” entry for the “DarkkVixen” that I am (that’s basically an inside (joke) thing I’ll explain it further down) but I wanted to show an unseen photoshoot with you guys that I’m actually really proud of, and it symbolizes a lot. Originally I used it on my other blog (just like one of the pictures) and I thought that represented a lot so I didn’t think to post the look here, especially because there’s no “shopping” really involved in it, but I do want to show you guys. I have so many looks, so many ideas, so much drive and everyday I get more bloated with inspiration and have to chase these blog goals to relieve it. Lol, for real. So get to know the DarkkVixen inside of me.

Fashion is my…favorite thing in the world. My highest passion, my favorite thing to do, my favorite thing to think about (other than Ally), etc…Sometimes I think people forget that. They see me prancing around in my photoshoots and assume I’m some wannabe model, or even a wannabe blogger. But it’s more than that…my FAVORITE thing is to blog about my fashion, but that’s because the fashion itself is so exciting.

Hey y’all! I just want to say, a year ago today I was doing my Marilyn shoot for my Marilyn, Knits & Memories blog post and today I’m photoshooting with simply a glossy lip stain and super fluffy faux fur coat. I sure tried a lot harder on the Marilyn shoot than I did with this one, but yet the pictures from today are somehow still better. I really need to get back in the habit of blogging more often!
Anyway, I got a faux fur coat from Nasty Gal for $198, and it’s so fun! A couple days ago I took a few pics with it on and today I took a few more but overall there was like less than 15 photos total, whereas last year I took over 50…Lol, but hey, I’ll try harder soon. No more empty promises. Here’s this fun look!
If you know me at all, then you know it isn’t uncommon for me to isolate time periods in my life and call each of them a “new era” as each new chapter unfolds. In my journal blog I have an entire category just for “new eras”, but I haven’t talked much about it on here. The only example I have is my “Selfie Sunday, The New Way” blog post from a while back. I actually discovered how to utilize my camera and I was pretty excited about it, so I did some random photoshoot using the new format I had formulated. This began a whole new era for this blog because from then on my photoshoots actually became good quality. But you know, with the way life events shift, I really think today marks the start of the newest era. I feel like I’m really blossoming into everything I’ve always wanted to be, and everything in my life is falling together beautifully. My girlfriend, my classes, my acting/modeling, my family, and I’m coming up pretty close to November 15th which is my 18th birthday. The most liberating of all days. So, I did this photoshoot a while ago but I thought it was perfect for this post, for a lot of reasons. Continue reading to find out more.
Wow, the second to last post in this series! Merry Christmas Eve! I know for most of you it’s pretty late and maybe even already Christmas. But here, I’m just getting ready for bed. Every year, I make sure to wear my most favorite pajamas because my mom takes so many pictures, and it’s actually a lot of fun. This year, I got this amazing sleep shirt from Victoria’s Secret, and it’s so perfect.
The sleep shirt says “Been An Angel All Year” and I love that! It’s a dream of mine to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel and I love how they tied that in with Christmas. Check out my photoshoot with it!
Good morning! Yay for Friday! Today we’re going to talk about one of my favorite things… fragrances. I don’t buy them a lot anymore since I have so many, however each day it’s like a Christmas present in itself to get to pick out a scent for the day. These are the ones I reach for most in the Holiday time.
