Stone Cold Beauty (Black Accessories)

I’m a blogger but, I literally just saved and published this entry without a title at first so there goes posting it on my timeline - for some reason all of my errors tend to save for the Facebook share option. I can’t even change up the thumbnail. Ugh. 

 Anyway, black iPhone’s are really cool to me now. Silver was my thing before. I take all my photos with mine, no “camera” necessary.

 I don’t know if it’s a security breach to keep exploiting my right hand (bag) but it’s aesthetically pleasing and the most convenient easy breeze going on these days.

 Back to blogging super weird and wording shit all “from another planet” esque! Not that anybody notices. Speaking of notice, it’s funny that I was asked about my hair. Like, I have to remember that not everybody is paying attention to what I do as soon as I want them to (or as soon as it happens but, whatever.)

 Damn, this palette is going nowhere. I literally am giddy as fuck every time I use it. Fun fact, I’ve been watching Lisa Eldridge tutorials and Gossip Girl and all the things I enjoyed as a teenager, it’s just nice to have me. But, as soon as I start to feel closed off, I find the balance, whether it’s to get ratchet on social media, bombard Kim with audio messages, or just spend some time around the city.

 Don’t ask me about my style, just appreciate it and maybe have some sense of your own, too.

 The whole time I thought this mascara was just not NYX but it is. I don’t use it all the time but it makes a look without using false lashes. And of course, my mirror shine lip gloss for any occasion.

 Outtake is so worth it; looking like I’m in Los Angeles, though. Actually, California doesn’t sound too bad right now since the weather is beginning to fuck up in NYC. Plus, the people are getting weirder and the food is wonderful on the beach, in the sandy air. They have “Boxed Water Is Better” on the west coast, pleaseee!

 In Whole Foods ( eating ) and a more mature lady asks me where I got my shoes as they were the prettiest she’s come across so far... Reiterating to her “Call It Spring” a thousand times, she scurried off as if she was heading there to buy a pair before she forgot the name of the brand. #MomentsLikeThat matter!

Crisp Black & White

I so badly want to go in about the highlights of today’s outfit session (as in shooting and scouting location, surrounded by locals, kids and dogs) but I’d rather keep it all bottled in and move on. Oh, well, maybe I’ll tell my “imaginary friend” in which I’m meeting up with later for vegan ice cream — that I’m excited about! Until then, I’m at home, editing and waiting on my seamless order. Can’t decide if I’m wearing these heels for the rest of the day or not. Follow me on Twitter for a poll.

Baby Peach Skin

They don’t call me the white peach for nothing. Nobody calls me that but, my skin is all anybody ever tells me about myself so, this is what this is about. Disclaimer is that I do enjoy nutrition and supplements but they are expensive and I haven’t used any of my favorites now that I’m doing things a little different. Water is always a must but people say that all the time and forget to take it seriously.

Retinol 

“Retinol is a weaker, over the counter version of tretinoin, a prescription vitamin A derivative that is highly effective in reversing sun damage and signs of aging. Tretinoin decreases fine lines, evens skin color, improves texture, tightens pores, and stimulates blood flow and collagen production.“

FullSizeRender.jpg

I’m not giving away all of my secrets but I will say that I’ve personally started using retinol cream (like I found some potions at the Burlington’s) and it’s basically anti-aging skincare. Prevent now! Unless you’re under 20 then just drink lots of water and stay out of the sun.

No Dairy 

I’ve made the transition over to veganism, as well. The lack of dairy in my diet is benefiting and it’s really showing on the outside. Surprisingly, I don’t miss cheese! I crave other foods as an alternative and I’m fuller and more radiant than ever.

That’s it. “Anti-aging” and Veganism.

OOTD: October Looks

I find it cool that people are jumping in on posting more outfits lately. It makes me wonder if the next move is... well, I'm thinking online boutiques/shops. It's nice to see who's on board when it comes to instagramming but, really consistency is key.

Friday the 13th

I don't know what it is. Even though things are moving forward and progressing, I'm still bored, restless, and staying up until 4AM. I love the city, I'm just literally doing a bunch of nothing and I'm surprised that anything productive is getting done at all.

I really get into the day around noon unless I'm up before the sun but it's like the lighting is prettiest as the day goes on after lunch and I tend to gain more energy - by 6 o'clock, I want to kick it with somebody or simply make new friends. Take note, girls!

Outfit of the day and makeup and hair and everything that makes me, me. Not that it's anybody's concern but, I've finally learned to zone out and be about my own world again. This is precisely how I was before I knew heartbreak and before I was acknowledged as new money. I am square one yet also completely on top!

Dirty Vibe: Quintess Makeup

When I am seen out and around taking selfies, it's because I'm a blog and a model. That being said, here's back to back entries because I'm feeling colorful, young, vibrant, willing enough to share and exploit myself some more. Plus, this is the look I did using the Ace Beaute Quintessential Eyeshadow Palette and bit, I killed it.

Ask me where I get my hair from too. On my way to Chinatown for a shoot and then meeting up with a friend for new world domination! I'm basically sick to my stomach, working and modeling, I don't have time to Instastory even though I take my feed seriously as hell. I see you hoes find ways to cop my style, just know it's inspiration from a nobody city gal and I appreciate the phony bullshit.

Cello & Acid Denim

Ok, I'm still couch/house surfing in NYC if anyone is willing to have me while I continue to pursue fashion and modern media. I'm not embarrassed to own up to the fact that I don't see myself settling down in a home any time soon and I do have the will/drive to keep going! Clearly. I'm also collecting detailed note of how people treat me and interact with me as I navigate this chapter in my life. I'm mixed between humbly disappointed and obnoxiously appreciative. I'm on day 9 of detox from all the unnecessary food and sweets I was eating upon not taking my fitness as seriously as I thought to. I wanted to reset my metabolism and maintain my body. And ayy! I was photographed in Brooklyn yesterday as planned and am beginning to take on the "models mentality" in a healthier manner while also keeping my own independent productivity consistent. My skin finally cleared up and I'm welcoming opportunities of happiness, fulfillment and friendship rather than the obsession with glamour and superficiality. I'm currently finding ways to do my outfit of the days and have a sneaking suspicion it will come to fruition in a neat new establishment. For now, the mirror at Forever21 works? Ehh. It could pass as a really large closet in some instances. And it goes to my aesthtic.

Melon Makeup

Hey! I'm currently in Central Park, editing and watching GossipGirl on a bench. It's Sunday and beautiful. My friend texted me about the subways running all fucked up this evening so, I have an eventful night to look forward to but, the plus side is my makeup looks flawless and is long lasting. I also took bikini digitals today and sent them off to my scouting director for agency submissions. Tomorrow, I will be doing some shopping for myself and an upcoming shoot! I'm a little nervous/skeptical about "modeling" again but this work is with a kick ass photographer so, I plan to trust the process in a new light. I also get to style myself and I love doing that. 

Add me on Snapchat isitorganictho - it's mainly my face beat to capacity in a bunch of different locations throughout the city, haha!
