Once upon a time, I attended one of thee best shows of my entire life. The Circus Starring Britney Spears, on April 9th 2009 in Tacoma (/Seattle). I remember getting into the merch line and not being able to see a thing over all the tall people in front of me, so my mom is like “Here wait I have an idea” so she took a picture with her cute little handheld camera, of the merch display. I was able to zoom in on the camera and look through the different shirts and stuff, and the shirt that really caught my eye was the one that said You Want a Piece of Me? I LOVED IT. But my mom said it was inapropriate. I’m like, mom come on you know her song! And my mom is like “Well yeah we know Britney, but that’s not how other people would see it.” Made me kinda sad, but I settled on a super angelic looking top along with temporary tattoos and a majestic-ass poster. We got this big brown bag that had the tour’s promotional logo on it but after keeping it for like a year I threw it out. 😦 But, years later, I was able to not only keep the rest of this merch (well I kept 2/3 of the tattoos) but I was able to acquire other merch from the tour, like two of the different tour programs, the set of 3 buttons, the pack of playing cards, and the B hat logo choker. And 8 years later, the shirt I bought still fits me. Yep, I’ve kept it all these years. And so I decided it was about time I shot it.
Once upon a time, I was in the fairy tale city of New York, touring Teen Vogue and Conde Nast. I took a goodie bag on the way out and the first thing I opened up to was this little mini pouch of 3 mini Dior brushes. I was so shocked and excited when I saw the “Dior” name on it and a lot of the goodies were lame but a lot of them were really fun. This was the first Dior thing I ever owned. I keep it in my makeup bag for on the go. The second thing I ever owned from Dior was a little mini of Poison Girl perfume. And then for some reason I ended up falling in love with the brand…
Hello loves. On the 20th I got to see Portugal. The Man again in concert! Last time I saw them was when they toured with Cage the Elephant. They were great and it was beautiful. I shot my outfit after I got home from the concert so you bet my makeup was half worn off and I was tired af but I really liked the outfit so I wanted to capture it. I went to the concert and bought the hat and then wore it for the duration of the night and thought it looked SO awesome with my Linkin Park shirt and Guess Jeans. Then there’s the merch shirt I bought, a gorgeous white art piece. Let’s check them out.
Rest in peace Chester, much love for you. Thank you so much for changing my life as I grew into who I am, and thank you for always taking the words out of my mouth and detangling the thoughts in my head. Thank you for all of the times you were alive, and thank you for letting your influence impact my life in the best way possible. Thank you for everything that you’ve done, and for eveything that you still do as your legacy and your words live on. I have so much love for you, you really have changed my life. Linkin Park is very very important to me. This is extremely hard for me to even process…I’m in such shock.
So thankful for this band and everything they’ve done. I just wanted to look back at some of the shoots I’ve done with their merch.
I’ve had a weird case of writer’s block these past few days. Yesterday morning I got my wisdom teeth taken out and that was kind of a curve ball, so for a solid 36 hours I laid in my bed and tried to sleep and heal and all that crap. I think I did a not-bad job, tomorrow’s day 3 but I’m not in too much agony anymore. I’m listening to some incredible songs (like Homemade Dynamite by Lorde) and typing this and getting ready to take a shower and to also finish this blog post. That’s tonight’s itinerary. And it’s actually pretty exciting. I hate having to sit on bed rest for like evs but that’s a choice, and I’m choosing now to venture into the world even if my head or gums hurt. Ya know? I wanna show you guys this one test-shoot I did, I called it July because it was just so July af. And I know I have past posts like “New-July” but that could be some sort of new July or something but this is the pure essence of my summer, the beauty of 2017, the flowers blooming in my little boat of feelings–it’s a completely different concept. I used to associate July heavily with my ex but now I’m not even really thinking about her, because life is brand new and everyday is another conversation with my intuition and the blessings of my past, present and future. Or something like that anyway. Let’s get into the shoot. THIS IS WHAT LIFE SHOULD BE LIKE!
I’ve renamed this blog post about 4 times, but I think I finally have a title that’s going to stick. Here I have two blogshoots, both using my new Givenchy lipsticks, although ones a pretty raspberry and the other is a light nude rose. Two completely different outfits, but both are representations of some new things in my life. I can’t wait until I get new clothes but for now, I have this to post!
Good morning world. How are you? I need to show you guys my shoots from The 1975 concert. What I wore to the concert, and how I wore the merch I got. I attended the show on April 30th, 2017 in Seattle at the WaMu Theater. One of my favorite traditions. I’ve begun to start experimenting more with my fashion, so I haven’t been shooting as much. But I wanted to show these! These shoots are called The 1975 and By Your Side!
It’s a beautiful day outside. It really has been so beautiful lately in Seattle. That’s like…my favorite thing. I think spring is my favorite season. But anyway, y’all know that beautiful and genius artist Lights? I’ve been completely in love with her music since 2013 (I’ve liked it since 2010 but became in love with it in spring 2013, wow happy 4th year anniversary @ Lights) and she’s always been like…a voice and an inspiration for my life. The first CD I ever got from her was her Siberia Acoustic album, and it’s still in my top 5 favorite albums of all time. ANYWAY, she’s getting ready to release new music so the other day she said everything on her online store was 50% off! I immediately went to check out the site and see what was still available. I got a shirt and a cool jacket… I wanted to show you the shirt. This is different from all my 65+ merch shirts, it’s camouflage with an orange collar. And on the shirt says “Show me that your love will never change” I LOVE that lyric! Cactus in the Valley is one of my favorite songs by her. This shirt is beautiful, extremely comfy, and I want to show you my photoshoot for it!
So yes, it’s yet another graphic tee outfit. Oh well, don’t be mad about it. This one is extra fun! Continue reading to see more in depth.
Ariana Grande. March 23rd, 2017. KeyArena at Seattle Center. DANGEROUS WOMAN TOUR. One of the best ever experiences I’ve had in the concert world! Okay so I was SO pumped for this concert, just ask my dad or Ally. Like I’m always excited for concerts but I was seriously so pumped for this. It was AMAZING. I gotta blog all about it! So here’s the two photoshoots I came up with to display my souvenirs but I also have so much fun and footage!
What a beautiful day, how is everyone? On the 24th I got to go to a Gwen Stefani concert with my mom, it was super incredibly fun. I haven’t been photoshooting as much these days but I did have an idea, I’m going to walk you through my concert attire.
I have this tradition where I get a shirt at every concert and then wear it the next day. So I’m going to show you both what I wore to the concert and the next day outfit. I love Gwen!
