So when I shot with Chanelle from Penelope’s Vintage on Sunday, she wore this really awesome skirt, but the thing about it was that it wasn’t a skirt, it was shirt. At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. I mean, I will admit, sometimes Chanelle wears things that just really don’t speak to me, but this one could go either way. Now, we shot and did our thing and then on the way home she told me how Christian (the bf) made fun of her shirt/skirt and how she saw it on Chictopia and thought it was cool. So I get home and I’m editing our photos and I must say now, this look has really grown on me. And of course, I did what I usually do when I like something, I research it. I found this neat DIY post on how to tie it and I think I might have to rock this when I get my JC wedges in the mail. Travis won’t notice if I steal one or two of his work shirts, right?
I’m still shooting with Penelope’s Vintage pretty regularly. This girl is blowing up right now so make sure you check out her site here. And keep your eyes out for the new stuff I shot with her today. Xoxo
So the new freshman class started at school on Monday. That means I’m officially in the homestretch! Longest year of my life.
I’ve been so busy lately; it’s exhausting. I had a shoot with Penelope’s Vintage on Monday. It was easy and as awesome as always. I adore Chanelle and everything she does. She’s such a cool person to work with on a regular basis.
I shot with a Zivity Model from Oakland, Lisa Price, on Sunday. I wanted to go to Ink n Iron, but I didn’t fully decide what I wanted to do until it was too late. It didn’t turn out so bad though because the pictures came out awesome.
Other than that, I have no news to report on. Travis and I had a lunch outside a couple days ago and I stole some shots of Holly (the dog) and the garden at his parents house. I also have a wedding on Saturday so be on the look out for images from that.
I’m moving soon. My dad quit his job and as a result my family is moving out of state. Travis and I are staying in Simi and moving in with my friend’s cousin, Randy (who is awesome, btw), but we can’t take Doli with us because Randy has a husky-wolf mix named Kobe that is bigger than a great dane and will probably eat Doli. We’ll be renting a house instead of an apartment, which is nice so once we’re settled in, we’re going to look into getting a dog of our own. I’m already sad about losing Doli because I’ve had her for so long and she makes me happy; it sucks that I’ll rarely be able to visit her. Although, to be honest, I’ll probably never visit my parents.
I hate updating on school. It’s boring, I know. But here are some things about school that aren’t boring. #1 Old ladies like to tip us in scratchers. That is totally awesome. Very thrilling tip. #2 I can do whatever I want to my dollheads and my teachers will always tell me it’s creative and looks good. This is awesome because it keeps me entertained and I can’t literally have the worst weave in the school, but add a funky cut or color and BAM! instant amazing hairstyle. #3 I can give girls 70′s hairstyles/blowouts all day long and everyone loves it. Fuck yeah, 70′s hair. Also, if anyone wants to buy me the rose blowout serum pictured above, please do. I want it. It smells SOOO good and the very first ingredient on the bottle is rose water. hell yeah.
I’ve been busting my ass shooting lately. I’ve shot for some publications (that I’m keeping on the DL until further notice), a latex designer and Penelope’s Vintage, and a ridiculous amount of Zivity sets. I’ve been shooting with:
Mynxii White & Fae
And I have more shoots coming up with Amy Fries, Mynxii again, Jaime Doe, and Bridget Blonde. Hopefully Serena can do makeup for my shoots comng up because she’s done it for the last few and she seriously does such an amazing job. I mean it when I say that if you need makeup done for anything, HIRE HER because she’s fucking kills it at what she does. The latex designer I shot for was Abigail Greydanus. Her latex is so, so beautiful and I’m stoked to shoot it again. And the icing on the cake is that Abigail is sooo nice. She bought us pizza after our last shoot! Pizza!!!
Speaking of food, I’ve had the WORST diet lately. I pretty much only drink coffee and wine. Sometimes water, but definitely not as much as I should. I have like no money at all so I have been eating lots of top ramen and $5 pizzas. The best meal I’ve had in like a month was the food that Mynxii cooked when we had our last girls night. She made eggplant Parmesan and it was soo amazing. I can’t wait for our next girls night tomorrow. <3 I’ll have to bring like koolaid or something since Mynxii gave up alcohol. I’ll have to think of something awesome. I adore you, Mynxii.
Anyway, here’s some behind the scenes shots from my recent shoots. Enjoy!
