Lemon Drop

When I first started blogging, I use to ONLY color block. I've been into darker colors for some time now and felt it was time for a bright color. Yellow and blue together has become one of my favorite color combinations.

Refinery 29 Interview

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle." -Steve Jobs

With all the excitement around my calendar, I was happy to answer a few questions about it with Refinery 29. I spoke about what made me do a calendar in the first place, my inspiration behind some of my favorite editorials, and a little style advice for curvy women. Check out my interview over at Refinery 29!

Roshe Runs

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson

I took these pictures when I was in Los Angeles a few weeks back. I like wearing outfits that can go from heels to sneakers. I use to be a huge sneaker head when I was a teenager so my love for sneakers never really went away. Barkleys and Roshe Runs are all I seem to be wearing these days. I'm planning on going to Florida next week and then toward the end of April, I'll be in the UK!

Wearing: Forever 21 bodycon dress, envelope crossbody bag, Missguided buckle heels, mens red Nike hoodie, Nike Roshe Runs

Nadia Aboulhosn Calendar Pt. 2

Here are some of the first shots from my Nadia Aboulhosn Calendar which you can purchase HERE! The bathtub shot, which is my favorite from the calendar, may look glamorous but literally one of the most difficult to shoot. Alex, the photographer and great friend of mine, had to hover over me with his foot on the soap holder. haha. It was also a challenge to keep the flowers upright and keeping my make up in tact.

Photographer: Alex Vanderheyden | Make up: Ciara Ayako | Wearing: Taurus Rainbow Sheer Gown, SimplyBe Panties 80's Inspired - Since it's Selena's passing today, it was only right to post the Selena inspired look from my calendar. When I first started blogging, most of how I dressed was influenced from her. I'd always wear bustiers, red matte lips, and big hair. Over the years my style has evolved but I wanted to bring the old me back a little bit.

Photographer: Alex Vanderheyden | Make up: Reba Glaser | Wearing: drop triangle earrings, black bodycon dress Vintage Inspired - While in the middle of shooting my calendar, my mom went through the attic and found my great grandma's scarves. I got inspired to do a vintage look and paired it with ModCloth and Nastygal.
