My countdown to Florida is official: 1 more week. 7 more Days. 168 more hours. Too much?
I haven’t had the time to update the blog, but, incase you missed it, I did upload a full update video on my YouTube channel here. Due to certain circumstances, Darien and I have found that New York City just isn’t the place for us right now. It took me some time to adjust, but I’m ready for this new chapter in my storybook. While I’m still in the Big Apple, though, I’ve been hustlin’, harder than ever. Expect my next few posts to be based in NYC & collaborative.
I recently did a shoot with Amanda-Lee – also knows as @a_leethal on Instagram – who’s actually the first female photographer I’ve ever worked with. Needless to say, the #pussypower was real.
As far as the styling goes: this look was 100% inspired by Darien.
What do you think of the styling? Do you feel the skater kid vibes?
The first half of 2016 was filled with monthly collages. I simply love how they gave me a burst of inspiration! I am one who is always inspired by everything I encounter, however, I find that it’s always nice to refine that constant inspiration onto one board.
Pinterest is a perfect way to have a mess-free board.*
I wanted to get back into the flow of making collages:
Welcome, Twenty Seventeen.
When was the last time you made a collage? Do you think they’re a great outlet for your inspiration? I would love to know your thoughts!
But life’s been really real on my end. I’m going through some life changes. Unexpected life changes. I promise I’ll be filming an update video soon – I need a good vent session! I’m just waiting for a few more things to fall into place.
I’m here with another monthly Collage and Wishlist! These posts have quickly become one of my favorites to post. I genuinely enjoy flipping through old magazines & pasting pictures together to reflect my current inspirations. As you’ll see, I’m seriously dying for spring to make its arrival – and stay for a bit.
I have a serious case of the winter blues. Though New York has had a few days of Spring, global warming keeps coming back, hitting us with 30 degree weather and snow…in April. As I’m typing this post up, it’s gloomy, cold and rainy outside. Since I still have time to prep for my Spring Wardrobe, I decided to take on the challenge of creating my own capsule collection. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that having an abundant amount of clothes has honestly made it harder for me to get dressed in the morning. I find that I gravitate towards the same clothes all the time – do I really need those 15 tops that I never even glance at? This collage has a few pieces that I already own, and some pieces I hope to find via thrift store & DIY within the next few week. All I’ve been thinking about are the endless amount of outfits I can create this spring season. This is going to be my season – I am a May baby, so this is technically my season. Expect a lot of fashion videos and posts this Spring, my creative juices have been flowing non-stop!
This is an outfit I’ve had in my mind for a few weeks now. I’m on the hunt for the perfect off-the-shoulder top, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I recently picked up some silk fabric and have been playing around with my sewing machine, so I’m definitely planning on creating my own perfect top. When in doubt, make it yo’ self. My accessory game has improved tremendously since shaving bald and I seriously cannot wait to rock the boho vibes. I’m forever one with the bohemian vibes.
