The Future is Female.

Happy Tuesday:

It’s been a good minute since I picked up a camera & shot on manual.

Before I started my blog, heck, before I even started my YouTube channel, I first became interested being behind the camera. I even applied to FIT in the hopes of majoring in Fashion Photography. But I’ll be honest, I didn’t really commit to photography the way I should have and wasn’t really surprised when I got my rejection letter, either. Life. It happens.

& I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’ve been feeling super nostalgic lately – I’ve been itching to get back into old habits.

With that in play & my current, serious obsession with the whole Mom/Daughter-Blogger-Duo-thing, I decided to spend an afternoon shooting with my mini. When we’re out and about, she always asks me to take her photos – this just felt right.

At the end, I asked her if she had fun doing the shoot and she yelled “Yes!” with no hesitation.

Happy Wednesday:

Nothing feels more amazing than watching your dreams become your reality. I was not planning on having another shoot with Kaelynn for another few months but baby girl was ready to take photos with mommy. #blessed

This was definitely not expected – but it’s totally something I am extremely happy about. My obsession with the Mom & Daughter Blogger Duo is real and I cannot wait to start heading in that same direction with my own blog.

I was teaching the munchkin how to cross her legs and her attempts were beyond adorable to watch. And she totally got the hang of it after a while! The fact that she is totally open to trying new things makes my heart so warm; there’s really nothing else I can ask for as a mama.

Working on getting detailed shots is the next thing we’re going to tackle next time I include baby girl. She’s getting the hang of it and that means everything.

My little forever girl. ❤

pic2Happy Hump Day!

Just to make things clear, I haven’t yet figured out a schedule for my posts. I’m thinking 3 days a week: Monday, Wednesday & Friday.
This is how it’s gon’ be broken down:

Monday: Written post.
Wednesday: Outfit/Photography post.
Friday: Video post.

I’m super stoked to use this blog as a form of expression. I honestly feel like this time, my blog WILL grow with me. I can’t wait to embark on this adventure & hope to make tons of new friends along the way.

I was speaking to Darien [my boo thang] about planning & figuring out where I should take this blog & he recommended that I should have a variety of photos, writings & videos.

I’d love to write more, both for my blog & in my free time. I have a few reasons why: Mainly, I NEED to write more. I use to love writing in high school. It was one of my favorite things to do during my free time. But as I got older, I don’t know what happened, but, my interest just disappeared. Reading & writing is one of the most magical forms of expression, I think. These two things can keep your imagination soaring – that’s amazing. I’d also love to share my experiences as a young momma in this blog. It’d be great to even have discussions about momma life with y’all! If you have any suggestions on what I should write for any future posts, please, let me know.

Fashion is my niche. Hump Day = Best day of the week. It just works.

I will forever love Youtube. I’ve thought about quitting but the love between us is too strong. So expect videos from me. Mostly fashion videos, but don’t worry, there will be some variety in content.

I don’t want this intro to be super long so I’m going to end it here. I promise, next written post is GOING TO BE a proper INTRODUCTION; all about who I am and why I’m here, posting. Stay tuned.

Back to the outfit:

To be honest, there were 2 other outfit posts that were suppose to go up today, but with the circumstances that is called my life, I had to work around distractions.

There were a few things Darien & I had to get done on Sunday, so I had to rush, quickly put an outfit together, and head out. My completed look:

Don’t mind the fact that it’s the ending of June & I’m fully covered. It was pretty chilly in the a.m. due to the rain.

My main tip for this look: black is always the new black. TIP: When in doubt, black it out. No one can ever go wrong with wearing black. I don’t own a black t-shirt [I desperately need to change that], so I decided to add a bit of color with this burgundy/red boyfriend tee. Boyfriend tee’s are my favorite, they just fall in the right places. It was chilly, as I stated earlier, so I covered up with my knit cardi from Brandy Melville.** TIP: When wearing the same color, spice things up with some texture.

I’m so happy that I’ve managed to loose enough weight to pick up a few pair of jeans – these black high waisted skinnies from AE were such a great pick up. I’ve already worn the hell out of them! They match everything, fit me nicely, & are high waisted so food babies can easily be covered.

Shoes & Bag**: I’ve had both of these pieces for over 2 years now, and they are both two of my favorite pieces to rock. Remember my last post? I still stand by fringe being equivalent to my life. The shoes: it’s been a while since I’ve rocked these, but wearing them reminded me of why I loved them so much. Expect to see these again this summer.

pic4For jewelry I kept it super simple with one necklace. I’m wearing the Onyx necklace from my Etsy shop. I’ve been wearing it a lot lately – it’s my current favorite go-to-piece.

This was a super simple, quick look, but is an outfit that really reflects who I am. There’s nothing wrong with being simple sometimes. It’s actually pretty refreshing.

TIP: Sit back, relax & enjoy the simple things.
