It’s finally time for me to do a good Halloween post! I do holiday posts sometimes throughout the years but a Halloween themed photoshoot or blog post I haven’t really done as much as I could’ve until today. The only other Halloween related blog post I’ve done until now is one I called Scorpio Season back in 2017, with a Halloween themed outfit and a Scorpio themed outfit. That one was pretty great, I think it turned out pretty good! This one is pretty much just a cute themed photoshoot with a Seether t-shirt I got for Halloween in 2015 called Mind Control, and it’s a totally awesome t-shirt! I just basically wore that and my chain leggings that I always love, and it was a pretty good outfit. One day I’ll find some sort of costume to do for a that kind of photoshoot, but I rarely ever dress up for Halloween! So I guess it was just cool to shoot down this photoshoot for both blogs of mine, including Celebrity Merch Base where I post things that I collect. I like how this turned out, I did some pictures for both the full-length shirt and the shirt tied up in the back to make it a crop top! I wanted to make sure I got the entire shirt in the picture but also it looked really cute tied up. I also love the picture I used for my featured photo below, I think the eye look looked pretty good with the name of the t-shirt (Mind Control) that matched the look pretty well! Anyway, I love this Seether t-shirt, because I can definitely wear it other times of the year but it definitely was a Halloween t-shirt that they put out so it’s perfect to finally do a photoshoot for for this Halloween. I can’t believe how long I’ve had all my Seether merchandise! I always love it. Let’s get more into the photoshoot now.Continue reading
Happy St. Patrick’s Day of 2022, looks like this is my first time finally posting about this holiday. I can see why I was usually doing other things around this time, in most of my March’s, but I’m glad I’m getting around to this one for sure. I call this photoshoot the same as the title, ‘Green Envy’, with a really faded green t-shirt that is distressed with holes all the way down, that I wore as a dress. I also have these cool, also faded, four leaf clover earrings and necklace that my stepmom made for me a couple different times that I think go really well with this outfit. I love how it turned out but I was surprised a bit, with the long purple socks it pops a bit too. I love the color schemes and also my green lipstick, it folds together well enough and I liked how it all came together. It’s cool to do holidays as well, I really love how often I’ve been blogging on here this year and I think this blog post is a good one for the timeline as well. I do think things are going really well for me this month too, I’ve been making a bunch of progress as I go through this beginning of this year and I’m glad it’s almost spring. Since my last post, I had been making better progress before then, and these days I haven’t been as active in my journals or whatever, but I’m still doing well with every other aspect and within the next couple of weeks I’ll have worked on all of that a lot more too, I just haven’t done as much in the last week or two. I’m still glad about everything I have going on, I’m still applying myself to my life and making sure I stay active with whatever I can, and I’m really doing good anyway with everything else at least, of course!

A good way to celebrate Valentine’s Day of 2022 is with a good outfit and photoshoot! I’m excited about this one, it turned out really good. I have the red hair going with this red skirt that I’ve wanted to shoot for such a long time, and I finally got around to it! These pink earrings are very similar to these red ones I used to have in 2018, in like this blog post with the leather dress, but they’re of course light pink instead of the red. I think the look turned out really perfect this year, I’m glad to do another holiday post finally. I wore this outfit to go hangout with my boyfriend on Monday, and we went out to dinner and everything. I’m glad I got to see him this day, it worked out pretty well! This year is going pretty well for me so far, I like how my shoots have been turning out and everything. Still most of my photoshoots will be in this same room but I keep finding really good angles for it this time around, and I’m pretty proud of how it has all turned out. I also really think my makeup turned out well for this photoshoot as well, I love my eyes in it with all my heart. I used Redrum by Jeffree Star Cosmetics for the lipstick, and Pillar Box Red by Butter London on my nails with a shimmer top coat (Desiree) from Julep over top of it. So pretty much red everything with the pink earrings and these nude pumps. I even put on my fluffy coat I got from my friend at the end and got some pictures of my outfit in that, which turned out pretty good. This is just a festive shoot I did next to my magazine rack and I love how it turned out. It’s been a while since I’ve got any pictures in pumps, too, like so many years, but I finally put on a pair of them for another shoot this time around! I have so many shoes in my closet that I need to wear more for photoshoots, but I do pretty well with alternating through them and getting different pairs in my shoots and posts throughout each year so I’m proud of how I’ve been doing with that. Hopefully I can keep up with that consistency as I go, I really like how things turn out with keeping things like that. I should never over-shoot any piece of clothing again, but I’m getting good at being aware of that so I’ll just keep going. Thanks so much for checking out this blog post and my blog, continue reading to see some more!Continue reading
I’m pretty excited to begin this year and lay everything out in front of me, it’ll be good to see where I get to next. As per usual I do a lot of the same things that I have been doing for the past 6 months, but these days I think my attitude is improving now too. I had some goals and things to focus on nearing the end of last year, but now I’ve settled in better and I’m more relaxed to see what’s going on for this year. In terms of what’s helped get me excited, I just have these clothing pieces and makeup items I’m excited to finally use more and incorporate into photoshoots, but also my journaling! I love my journals so much, I haven’t written in them as much as I’ve wanted to but that’s something to push myself for this year. I did sit down recently though, right at the end of the year, and did another couple of pages for my vision journal, which turned out really great. I don’t work on that as much as I’ve usually worked on my hand-written journals, but I love both and they always get me started on something to think about and everything. So that’s a focus for this year, let me get into what this photoshoot is about next! I ended up meeting a new friend at the Alano Club, which I go to for my Narcotic’s Anonymous meetings, and his name is Robert. It’s really cool to have started talking to him, especially because he makes a lot of interesting clothes and jewelry and things like that and he wanted to share some with me. So he ended up giving me this bikini, hand-crocheted two-piece set that I love with all my heart, that he made by hand. I thought it was so perfect for a shoot! It was near the end of December that he gave it to me, and it’s my first thing I’ve shot for the new year of 2022. It turned out really good, and the colors are perfect for this timing! Not to mention my blonde hair here, I’ll eventually get my hair dyed again but I actually love how it ended up blond-ing. A good look for me for the meantime. It’ll be cool to see how my hair grows more too, it grew so well in the last year! Let’s get into this photoshoot now, I love this one.Continue reading
So far through this year I’ve been pretty proud of what I’ve been living up to. With my birthday in November, it’s pretty cool to turn a year older and then prepare myself for the next upcoming year. I finally turned 23 on the 15th, and I think I did really well for 2021 in all the months leading up to this one. For all of the year I kept a consistency writing on this blog (as well as on my other blogs), posting enough every month. I loved the photoshoots I did this year a lot, I think I did plenty through the spring time too, and this year was just a good requiem for me after the last couple of years. A lot of this year to me was about sobriety, which I’ve written about, and that really shaped me after a while. Once I hit the middle of the year, I finally got to a point where I was really loving my photoshoots every month, those were some of my favorites! I was just really proud of how they kept turning out. Hopefully next year I start getting into it more and posting more, but I’m making good progress as I go either way so I know I’ll be doing something good. I’m excited about my life even though it’s a lot of the same things sometimes these days, but I have this rhythm and I always really see where I’m going with it. I have this good attitude to me too and this persistence that I want to remind myself of, with my writing and creative flow. Sometimes I don’t really have that much to say I think, but when I’m even just writing in my journals and things a lot comes out that I couldn’t explain much until I started writing, but it makes so much sense. A lot of what’s inside of me I think is accessible when I point myself towards the right ideas, which I sometimes can’t express until I’m finally writing. Sometimes I start writing and it ends up sounding like I’m solving a problem as I go, and it ends up making so much sense when I get through it. One thing I’ve noticed that I’ve been leading up to the past couple of months is this energy in me that I keep wanting to express, and it’s interesting to see that evolve with me a bit the more I recognize it. That’s what I’ve been finding more and more in myself these days. So that’s a lot about me I’m finding in myself more as I go recently, but I had a pretty great birthday this time as well! I got to go shopping with my boyfriend one day and my mom another day, and I got new clothes to shoot and a couple jewelry pieces I’ll be posting about eventually too. I’m pretty excited about it, I’ve always wanted camouflage pants like this! It’ll be good to see how that goes, I still have so many outfit ideas for the next year. I really see myself these days and I know I have so much to put into my passions and things more & more, and I know I can just keep going and doing these things that I love. November was pretty good to me, and I know December will be one more post to wrap up the year, and I’m excited to see how that goes!Continue reading
One of the next old photoshoots I have left is this one inspired by Miley’s She Is Coming EP that I was probably listening to – I called it Dream actually. So Die Hard Dream is another I’m throwing up and it’s more about how I looked with the cigarette vs. the weed, why I had both is something I actually really miss sometimes but you’ll see once I show the shoot why it’s a little different actually. So my dream (cont.) is to be in this stabilized mindset of inspiration. I’m naturally really inspired but there’s a halt sometimes. Things like this are like the kind of glue that makes you work right.
Here it is, the last day of 2017. This is definitely pretty insane, I remember writing in January about how I know this year could be awesome, and man was I right. It was such an incredible journey and awakening for me as a person and in my growth. Today I want to create one final post for you guys for 2017 to go out with a bang, to represent my second FAVORITE album of the entire year, Tell Me You Love Me by Demi Lovato. I already did posts around my first and third favorite albums and I’ll link them. Now is time to tell you why you should tell Demi you love her. I did two shoots for this theme, one I named Sorry Not Sorry after her first single, and it was SUCH a fun shoot!! The second is named after the album title with the shirt/only merch I’ve gotten from the era so far. There will be more, there’s always more. 🙂
There’s so many incredible things in my life that even prove their credibility, and I think I hit the jackpot there. Things can get hard sometimes but then there are mini miracles here and there that shock me and excited me and prepare me for every aspect of the unknown. It’s pretty crazy and kinda cool, but the coolest thing is, every day I face multiple fears, and the whole year of 2017 I grew through so many milestones. Such a beautiful life! Now I want to show you guys a shoot I did not too long ago, called My House Your House. Named after a song from Angus & Julia Stone’s Snow album, which this photoshoot is inspired by. Your house, my house…Maybe this is where we belong. 🙂
When I was younger, I used to count how many Christmas presents I got each year. Christmas was all about the excitement of what I was getting. I loved my family, we were sweet to each other and were brought together in a humble way, however in addition to that, I appreciated and loved everything I got so much! I didn’t always expect too much, and mostly I just wanted to stress the fact that I was so so so grateful for everything that they did: Spending money on presents, letting Santa set up a big display when I was in to Bratz dolls with the big baby doll with our stockings full and set up next, spending time or thought on what we could even like, or even just getting us anything nomatter how stressful or careless the thought was. I’m so grateful! And as the years go on, I get more and more and MORE excited about giving gifts, rather than recieving–Actually, that’s not quite true. I love receiving gifts because it just touches my heart so sweetly knowing someone thought of me even for a second when they saw something or they remembered something I briefly told them or if it’s just something that THEY wanted me to have, it’s all so fun to me. So yes I like to receive because I’m so thankful for all the thought put into things. Even if a gift I got wasn’t really my thing, if someone picked it out thinking maaaybe I might like it based off of what they know of me, then that alone is an incredibly sweet gesture. So, all that being said, this is my 19th Christmas, and I put so so much thought into the gifts I was giving. Usually a Christmas post would be me talking mostly about the gifts I got, which were thoughtful and adorable small but practical things (and not cheap things either, good quality things that will last me ages and that I adore) but that’s the least important part of this post. I want to tell you guys all about my experiences buying gifts for my family and Danon and whoever else I could, telling you the excitement of how I had things planned and sorted through ideas until I finally picked out specific things for everyone that I thought they would love. Not only that, but I tried to throw a little Abby-twist in there, because it’s cool to recieve gifts that you love that you normally wouldn’t even know to pick out, but I swear my mom is SOO excited about her gift and she wouldn’t ever have known to buy it for herself! I did some little things, I did some thoughtful things, and I want to get better at gift giving because it seriously is so fun to me…I think I’m like, already old enough to handle Christmas as a giver rather than playing the role as the main reciever, so maybe one day soon that’ll be up to me, in one way or another. 🙂 So now as I age, I feel more free, more real, and I’m gaining so much strength. So thank god for the power you gave me, and thank god for a White Christmas.
Good morning world. Today is a post that is sort of over-due but at the same time I’m glad I took the time I needed. On October 16th I saw Bebe Rexha for the second time and not only met Bebe that night, but Danon too. I’ve blogged about our crazy meeting before but this post is all about all the merch I got from the concert, including the VIP things. Not only that, but I happened to buy 2 shirts at the concert, both in size Medium unisex (that’s all they had left) and one happened to fit Danon, SO this crazy kid agreed to do a shoot with me! Crazy how I got two of them and crazy that we were able to do this shoot and…everything is crazy but totally completely awesome. So yeah I’m excited to share my merch with you, because there’s so much about this night to love. This picture is a perfect example because not only are he and I wearing the Bebe shirts but in the top left corner is my VIP poster that I got and had Bebe sign at the concert.
