Today is a good day for another blog post, I love how consistent I’ve been with it. Two or so posts a month works well. I haven’t been doing too much these days, but my outfits are getting better. I’ve been fixing more jewelry with my stepmom, so I have more to wear these days. The jewelry for this outfit is interesting, it’s just one pretty heart and then a tiny choker-like chain that I got from Goodwill. This shirt I got from Toney and cut it in half. He gave me like 5 shirts in our time together so that was pretty rad, I’ve blogged about most of them. This one was for my birthday, as well as the Angel Like Me shirt that I did this year. This is the second shirt, and then the third one I still have to do. (In terms of the birthday ones he gave me.) Pretty rad, actually, I’m glad I got those. This is obviously an MTV shirt, plus I have another one I’m going to do this year. That one was actually a gift too. Anyway, I’m excited for this shoot, it was a good outfit with my classic dollar sign ($) chain. I’ve used that in a bunch of different shoots, search for chains. I’ve had multiple chains, too, so that’s pretty cool. I just have one right now though and it’s this one. Haha, I’m even wearing it today with some other outfit. I’ve got a good page going on the front of my blog, this year has been productive. I just have one more photoshoot to post and then I’m all caught up with writing, so that’s a good thing. We’ll see how the rest of the year goes, I mean it’s only May, not even halfway through the year yet, but almost. Okay let’s get into it! Oh how I love styling different graphic tees. I’ll get back to shooting merchandise in the summertime probably.Continue reading
The very first time I saw this trend, Kylie Jenner was rocking it. I’ll include that picture. Anyway, at first I thought it was really dumb. Then I realized it was kind of cool…Like wildfire that trend did spread, being interpreted by a million different people in infinite ways. It wasn’t until now, 4 months later, finally got my chance to fw this trend! I got a big bag of used clothing and had my mind set on re-creating this trend in my own way, so I started snip snip snipping away. Got some really controversial results, but the main one is one I call Epic.
Lady Gaga is one of my top 5 most important fashion influence of mine. Back when I was 13 I loved and studied Gaga’s style, and when I was 14 it turned to Avril Lavigne and her Abbey Dawn styles, etc I totally followed a lot of these cool people and incorporated their stuff into my work! I love to share that. This is an inspired set of looks, got lots to say about these trends! August is so damn hot but I was able to wear some cute outfits anyway.
The Koko Kollection! I wish I shot more with this collection, and I actually still might. But for now here’s the random days where I wore something from the Koko Kollection, it took 8 days but HOW COOL IS THIS COLLECTION It’s from Kylie Cosmetics. First there was the original quartet of lippies with 3 matte liquid lips and one gloss, and then they released a palette and another 3 matte lippies and another lipgloss. My favorite from this whole collection has got to be Okurrr, even though the name is dumb af. I also really love Doll, Damn Gina and Gorg! Like half the days I also used the Koko face palette with the lip. By the way – on Khloe Kardashian’s birthday they were giving away the first 4 Koko lips for free if you bought something from the Koko Kollection, but the entire Koko Kollection was also on sale so for all of this (8 lippies & a face palette) I only paid $64! And got the ENTIRE collection.
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!
“So I’ve got edges that scratch, and sometimes I don’t got a filter. But I’m so tired of eating all my misspoken words… I know my disposition gets confusing,” – Banks, Beggin For Thread
Banks is one of my current favorite artists. My favorite song by her is Trainwreck, but the song Beggin For Thread is so iconic! So I was listening to her Goddess album while I was trying to decide what to do next for a blog outfit. Finally I got the idea! Mostly I wanted to use the new goodies I got from Mirina Collections, but I also kind of wanted to stay casual. So I whipped up this look, denim on denim, kinda raw and if you notice the fact that all of it is ripped/distressed/cut then that’s a good observation. That’s why I used Beggin For Thread as a name. The lyric is “You got me beggin for thread to sew this hole that you ripped in my head,” and I don’t actually have any holes in my head that can be fixed with thread, but I thought it was interesting that I was listening to this as I was uploading this shoot to my laptop. My jeans are ripped, my jacket is distressed, and I chopped my tank top in half jaggedly like 4 years ago. And I added a blingy Mirina Collections necklace, and the look was complete!! I’m so happy with how it ended up. I took a bold statement blingy necklace, threw it on with some destroyed clothing and I felt so bomb. The look is bomb! Now finally I’m going to show it to y’all.
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.
Hey y’all! So lately I’ve been thinking. If you know me at all you know I LOVE lip products, especially liquid lipstick, and when I first started getting into them I didn’t see much of a difference between formulas but now I have 30+ liquid lipsticks including 14 different formula/brands, so I really wanted to show you all my top favorites and also just swatches of all the brands I have with as clear of a description on the formula that I can give. So let’s get into it, started with my very favorite brand!
Hey everyone! Today I thought I’d just share my new manicure! Back in the fall I did a mani that I really loved, and I just recently found the pictures for it; so I decided to make one inspired to that. I really wanted pink nails for whatever reason so that’s the main color, but the dots/splatters and glitter are inspired by my fall mani. I call it “Unicorn Puke”! Lol!
Here’s my mani and the mani from the fall. Read more to see the polishes used and more!
