I Do What I Love

Hey everyone, good morning loves! Kind of a crazy morning for me, I fell asleep before getting ready for bed then woke up and was like “oh I should get ready to sleep” but instead stayed up and ate chocolate. On the bright side, today I finally get to publish this awesome post, of which I’ve been working on for a lil over a month; it’s weird it’s been like a month since I even did a full outfit by myself with details yet I’ve posted lots of other stuff. So this is overdue. Finally another cute outfit to talk more about. I think some of y’all might think this is dope! The rest of you, I don’t really care. Lol, love you all! Let’s get into it though. Read More (below) to dive into this with me. Let’s just see what we have here…

You Don’t Know

Hey hey. I’ve come here today at 6am after getting like a couple of crappy hours of sleep earlier buuut it’s not like I could sleep now. My head has hurt eternally. Here I am NOT to complain, I actually have better things to talk about. This past month has been pretty crazy and a weird spin of events where all of the sudden I’m on the other side of the mirror, but it’s a good thing. I’m pretty sure I was supposed to be here the whole time, not on that other side which was just a vision of something that I could’ve seen be my life. But it wasn’t my life. That was never really me, as much as I was 2u947827987917491% convinced it was me. Yes I know there’s a u in there and I’m not complaining it makes sense. Lol. It wasn’t me in some aspects, and it broke me down in most of the rest. And then my eyes opened. We sobbed by a car and she opened my eyes. She made me realized I deserve so much better with how my life plays out and how people directly treat me, and it’s crazy that it became such a war around me just for me to withdraw myself from a situation. And I guess that’s the prelude to how she birthed the powerful song, “you dont know”.

Muladhara – Root Chakra Box

Tags

, , , , ,

Balancing my chakras not only increases my intuition by a lot, but it changes my association with that inner voice. It used to be that sometimes I would know to not do something but be frustrated because I wanted to so bad, but now it’s like, as soon as my intuition realizes what’s hap it makes me feel absolutely no desire or need to do…well, anything. I get drawn to the things that are good for me. Still working on that food thing though. But I wouldn’t say I get ‘pulled back’ from the bad things but it’s as if the path was already built for me to go around all of it and like stay home and meditate or not take something instead. It feels so natural, like my consciousness and subconscious have finally not just linked but synced, and I go through life feeling like I have more of a purpose.

But what’s beautiful is I took my love of subscription boxes + my love of striving to balance each Chakra and subscribing to the Chakra Box is a perfect example. I’m excited to show you all my experience & review for this box. I got it a couple weeks ago but waited to experience everything before writing this. For this particular subscription there’s only 7 boxes total, each box has around the same or similar things (i.e., each Root Chakra box will look pretty similiar) but I’m excited for the next chakra up, the Sacral Chakra! But for this post, I wanted to go through with you what I got, how I used it and all that, and hopefully shed some insight onto someone who’s curious about what materials or mindsets needed to balance Muladhara (the Root Chakra), even if they have really no prior knowledge to balancing chakras, because I had little to none. Which is why this subscription box was so beautifully perfect for me! Let’s get into what I got, how to utilize it, and more about Muladhara itself. 🙂

Dime in the Jukebox

Good morning all. Things have been kinda crazy for me lately. Lots of emotion and confusion, but at least I have people in my life who are caring of me. It makes me feel hugged and loved. No matter what I go through I have my fam and sometimes some other surprising characters in the mix and I don’t think anyone truly understands how we bring each other up. Anyway, I thought it was finally about time to post about Madii & I’s photoshoot, which involved chilling in her room. Seems like a weirdass name but I promise you it makes sense…to me. Lol, continue reading.

How We Do It

Tags

, , , ,

My dears, if you know my mom and I, you know how we are. And I hope that with every person we come in contact with, we show them how we love. I think my mom raised me with so much love and taught me love until around this age where now I think we both teach each other more about love and understanding every day. I know I posted that small thing on Facebook that everyone thought was sweet about her and I, however that was just one piece of what I was gonna throw in this post at some point, so if you read that, well…Read this. 😉 The story begins with – like I said, – love and kindness and compassion, and the fact that she is fun with me and yet still has lots of respect for my intellect is like…the best feeling in the entire world. It’s hard to feel alone when even just your mom/ConBon brings the energy of a concert (without the negativity) into whatever room. So I guess you could say we’re besties.

Changing But Never Changed

My intuition is so beautifully prominent lately. For months I started doing things like meditating and then on top of that I started collecting lots of crystals, and everyone says my room has a relaxing vibe and that’s totally why. There’s so much power in the world, and power in general scares…everyone, really. At certain points. Unless it’s EMpowering, with your solar plexus chakra opening and flowing like the perfect temperature and wind level of a spring day. Ya feel? Maybe none of this makes sense to you, but here’s something that will.

It’s back to the intuition thing. I want you guys to understand that like…struggling, having worse days than others, and having a lower point in your life doesn’t have to be scary. It doesn’t have to scare you at all, unless you choose to have it scare you, and a lot of times that does make sense! But. I wanna tell you this really cool story on why I wasn’t even worried when I started my very first day of January hungover af, because I had this revelation that January would be wobbly while I’m searching for balance and idk, I seriously thought “Once it’s February I’ll progress more. It’ll be easier for me to blog, it’ll be easier for me to get up and want to live each day, and each day will start making sense.” Because around the time of the Lights concert (the 2nd of Feb) I started finding puzzle pieces that were seriously just sitting there very calmly waiting for me, and they were imperative to me finding meaning in the unfinished picture. So I stood up, I looked at the finished puzzle, smiled, and now I’m starting another one. Or another game. Or some other analogy. SO, why do you care? Read more plzz…

THE Gangstress. #3Years

, , , ,

Today is a special day. February 8 & 9th, 2015, I posted my very first blog post on this site. I called the outfit Original Gangstress and about a year or two ago I thought it would be cool to make a look called Gangstress where I can also throw it back and talk a lot about that first blog post and how it came to fruition. I didn’t come out of the womb as a gangstress. I always had the idea to blog this exact way, but didn’t know how exactly to go aboout it. It’s like having something to say but just now learning the words to say it, the phrases to explain it. So honestly, now that I’ve figured myself out, I’ve got things pinned down and I know who I am, and I’m this badass Gangstress and I love to dance around and smile and live this amazing life, and I love that a big part of my life is my blogging.

It’s like this may be my 3rd year anniversary of ishopfordays.com, but what does that mean? It means that I’m so proud of myself, it means that I’m blogging more and more, and it means I’m getting a hell of a lot closer to finding the words I wanna say, everyday in every way through my outfits and blogshoots and paragraphs. I’m getting closer to getting my point across, getting y’all to smile, getting someone to think, and getting myself to grow. More and more. I wanna show you guys some awesome pics from my very first ever Shop For Days photoshoot plus this new shoot from this month that I tie into it. Check it out.

Bouquet of Rose Quartz

, , , ,

Good evening all! Happy month of Valentine’s Day, and happy Tuesday Evening!! Haha. Today I get to talk about the crystal that really sparked my love for crystals to begin with, Rose Quartz. I really wanted to capture & harness their love & beauty from the beginning when I found out how full of love they all are. So it’s February now and I’m making Rose Quartz my crystal of the month (last month was blue calcite if you caught that) because not only is it so important to me but it’s all about love, and February is supposedly the month of love! Although personally I like to spread love and give gifts to loved ones all the time, but sure we can pretend like there’s just one love-day. 😉 Anyway, the more I paid attention to the love of Rose Quartz, the more I felt it. Then I started reading articles where Miranda Kerr would talk about rose quartz and it’s love and I thought that was so beautiful, man I love her books and I love her affirmation cards and Kora Organics changed my life and I owe so much to this beautiful person. Anyway, Miranda is a totally good example of someone who loves rose quartz as much as me and she’s actually the one who gave me the idea to have it in so many places; not to mention, she created a luminizer out of crushed rose quartz! It’s brilliant! Let me show you some of these love-pieces.

My Prerogative: Jan-July 2017

It’s about time I posted about how life changing 2017 was! I’ve been meaning to make a post with my shoots from the year put into a video, and I’m comin’ at you now on Feb 2nd having just finished the video. I did a video for my 2016 shoots, but honestly, that was so boring. Like, not even I can watch it, even though I’m one of those people who repeatedly watches my own videos. So for this one, my goal was to make it watchable, at least for a bit. This is only video #1 and there will be a part two whenever I get around to it, because these are ONLY my shoots from January – July 2017. August-December is where it’s at with some of the best shoots I’ve ever done in my life, and I’m excited for that. Anyway, the beginning part of 2017 was life changing as well. I’m really proud of myself man. And now I present, the My Prerogative project, 2017 pt 1, ishopfordays *insert lots of heart emojis*

Awakening in a Box: Throat Chakra – Jan 2018

Tags

, , , ,

Hello everyone! Lately I’ve been like… Really into subscription boxes. I’ve tried a lot of beauty ones including Sephora’s Play box but didn’t like it so I just stick to Birchbox and Ipsy which I’ve been subscribed to for 4 years, and that’s pretty much the perfect amount of beauty products/trials for me. I was also subscribed as a Julep Maven for 2+ years hence the reason I have SO much Julep nail polish. But you see, I discovered these really cool subscription boxes that were soooo much more than beauty products/samples. Obviously I’m keeping my Birchbox and Ipsy subscriptions, but I also went on Cratejoy and totally explored all their different options of cool enlightening boxes full of crystals and things like that, and I subscribed to a few so that I could pick a couple favorites to stick with. I can’t wait to show you guys my Enchanted Crystal subscription box but I’ll wait until next month for that….For now, I wanna tell you guys about this small little Awakening in a Box box that I got recently, and how it’s like EXACTLY what I needed in my life! Like how recently I wrote my How To Tell The Truth post, and then I get a box in the mail full of items to help me tell my truth and have that energy flow freely. Crazy amazing timing. I’m so in love with it! Of all the sub boxes I’ve gotten so far this is my favorite! So let’s get into it! I didn’t get to take any cool pics with my camera these are just my iPhones pics, long story. But keep reading to be awakened!
