Mood Board: Passport Portfolio

Untitled

It’ time for another trip.
This time I’ll be roaming the streets of London and Rome. What a perfect time to get away.
I’ve kind of been on my “loner” thing these past couple of months. I’ve had so much on my mind, re-evaluating my priorities, the energies I want to be surrounded by, and finally just focusing on myself.  I don’t go out as much as I used to, and I find myself spending my afternoons and nights alone, just drawing.
I’ll tell you this though, I’ve been creating like crazy. New illustrations, and so many shoots.
Europe will be no different. I won’t be drawing, but I’m taking all of my photography equipment to produce more images for my portfolio. I’ve been using my camera more and more and I’m loving it.
I hope you guys stay tuned and don’t forget to check out my new photography website and my photography instagram.
See you soon.

Family : Khloe’s Dedication

35961407524_8cc93771b8_o

My niece Khloe is turning into a beautiful little young lady. I don’t get to see her as much as I would like to, and hopefully that changes soon. Today, I had the chance to see her get dedicated, which is another way or form close to a baptism. Watching her waddle her way in a little white dress was the cutest thing I’ve seen. I also had the chance to see my nephew Tristan, who is getting sooo big and is super handsome with adorable curls and light eyes. Ugh, so much cuteness, I can’t take it!

Mood Board: Changes

So Moody

Hair, it’s constantly changing, at least for me it is. There are so many choices. so many colors and textures\, how can a girl choose?
If you know me, you know that my hair is everlastingly going through phases. The other day I was in the mirror, with scissors in   hand wand was two seconds away from giving myself bangs again. I told myself about 3 years ago, I wouldn’t do it again, so whyyyyy?? I trimmed, but didn’t take the plunge. I am thinking about chopping it all off though. My ends are horrible, and maybe it’s good excuse for a new look. I haven’t really been looking or feeling cute lately, I need to do something.
But realistically, right now I’ve been focusing more on color.
I’m slowly transitioning, and have been trying to get rid of all the brassy orange in my hair, i stages. I’m trying my best not to do bleach, but chemicals will always be toxic. I’ve been counteracting with deep conditioners religiously, hoping I don’t end up bald, like my mother always told me I would.
I’ve been in love with this dark ashy blonde, or light ash brown kind of color, and I’m trying to slowly get to it. I’ve been using toners like Wella’s T18 and 050 , bc we all know purple is the opposite of yellow on the color wheel. And if you didn’t, now you know. I know I have to do another session of bleach to go lighter, but really?? Ugh. So annoying.

Link Love: So many cute things!

  • I’ve been on the hunt for a camera bag, but not just any camera bag. I’m sick and tired of all the ugly ones I own and want something cute for everyday use. I found this one, and I can’t wait until it arrives in the mail. I can wear it as a backpack and even fits my laptop inside!
  • And while we’re speaking about laptops, look how gorgeous this case is, pink marble, oooooooo.
  • These dresses are stunning, I want all of them!
  • My niece Harlie is smacking everything she sees.. this cute little drum should do the trick.
  • Just because summer is almost over, it doesn’t mean swimsuit season is over, this one is tooooo cute. I can’t wait to wear it in Dominican Republic soon.. let’s just hope the top is snug and my boobs stay in place.
  • Love the different colors and textiles on this outfit.
  • I’ve been reminiscing about Cuba, I would love to do a solo trip… maybe I should finally hit Iceland instead.
