Flowers and Feathers

According to me,
floral patterns are amazing. I really like this one because it isn't the average floral pattern; it has big, defined flowers and bold colors. I got this last summer actually, but I still love wearing it. I paired it with this blue sweater and my long feather necklace. I took the boot off for this shoot; it just ruins outfits. Hopefully it'll be off soon! Oh, and I parted my hair in the middle again. Do you like the middle or side part better?

Dress: Target
Cardigan: Target
Necklace: Forever 21
Makeup: Browns from Clinique

Stay floral.

My Fashionable Boot

According to me,
wearing this massive boot around is just plain comical. I love to wear dresses and skirts, but with the boot I just look silly. But I won't give up fashion because of my injury! This is what I wore to my photo job this morning. Sadly I never got pictures of the outfit I wore last night. Besides the boot, what do you think?

Dress: H&M
Cardigan: Chaps from Khol's
Belt: Thrifted
Shoe (yes, just one.): Target
Watch: Fossil

First Real Photography Job

According to me,
all the "photography jobs" I've had in the past haven't been official. Tonight and tomorrow morning are the first jobs I have where I'm getting paid to do what I love. Needless to say, I'm very nervous. I've been stressing all day. Please wish me look and send me good-photo-mojo! I'm covering an awards ceremony and a graduation.
This is what I've chosen to wear; my version of business casual. I didn't get a full length picture (yet). But hopefully I can post a full length shot tomorrow. My makeup is pretty basic, but I think it's appropriate.
Wish me lots of luck! You can see my past work here.

And don't forget to enter the giveaway!!










Stay confident (at least that's what I keep telling myself).

Pink Spice

According to me,
I don't normally wear lipstick, but when I do this is a favorite color. It's not too bold, but it still gives color. Pink Spice from Clinique. I paired it with really light shadows and a mildly smudged liner. And of course, topped it off with some great mascara from Covergirl.
I also included a shot of how I did my hair today. I haven't done a middle part in, oh, 6 years? But I felt daring today, and went for a middle part. The picture isn't the best because it was incredibly windy outside, but that's ok. I think this will become a regular hair style for me.

So Quickly

According to me,
my freshman year of college went by so quickly. I had my last exam today, calculus, and man am I glad it's done. This semester was a lot of work. But of course, it's worth it. This year went by so fast, but it was a blast. I wouldn't change anything.
I apologize for not doing an outfit post yesterday; I had to study quite a bit for my exam. So today, I'm doing a makeup post. I wanted a natural, summer-esque look, so I chose the eyeshadow duo sunburst by Clinique. I also used a bit of Clinique bronzer, but not even that can mask my whiteness. I used Covergirl lip stain and layered a sheer gloss over it. What do you think?
Also pictured is the new perfume my sister got me from Victoria's Secret. The name? Very Sexy Now. A bit odd, but it smells great.

Ann Ward for Vogue Italia

According to me,
I really love Ann! I'm so happy she ended up winning her season of ANTM. She definitely not your average model, but she takes some pretty amazing photos. Here's her spread from Vogue Italia. I love the styling, and of course her poses. She's terrific.
I'm most likely going to have an outfit post tomorrow (finally!!!) even though I'm still wearing the walking boot. It's a pain, but it's worth it. Have a nice weekend!

Something To Look Forward To

According to me,
I apologize for the slight neglect I have shown to my blog lately. It's finals week for me, and I'm working very hard. I just finished two of my classes; only three left! I promise to post much more after Thursday. Again, look forward to the giveaway!
But, I've chosen to post some pictures from last summer. The weather has been extremely dreary and cold. I want the sunshine to come back! So, here is to looking forward to summer, sunshine, fireworks, balloons, concerts, late nights, boat rides, and relaxation!











Stay sunny.

Simply Amazing.

According to me,
this is breathtaking. I recently received an email from a new clothing company from the IOU Project. They sent me a video describing the basis of their new line. It's amazing. Watch the video, and go support.

Eye Inspiration

According to me,
eyes are gorgeous. I love eye makeup. My favorite part of ANTM is when Tyra Banks "smizes." Absolutely gorgeous. So, here is some inspiration for eyes. Just beautiful. Especially the last three.
Giveaway coming in a week or so, and outfit posts will return soon!

Stay smizing.

Posterize

According to me,
photoshop, though difficult to use and learn, can create some pretty cool stuff. This is an image I took of my sister a while ago, and I used photoshop to give it a posterized feel. What do you think?
On another note, I'm sorry for the delay of the giveaway. It will be coming soon, I promise. I've just been crazy busy with papers, exams, and now my ankle. Thank you for being patient!


Stay patient.

Bambi

According to me,
this model, Bambi Northwood-Blyth, has the funnest name. I love this editorial she did for Harper's Bazaar Spain. I get a vintage/80s feel from it, with high glamour. I love the photography and lighting. Her hair is great too; messy but controlled at the same time.
Update on my ankle: it has three sprains. Two are low (one on the inside, one on the outside), and one high sprain in the front. Apparently a high sprain is pretty bad, but I have no clue haha. Recovery time is about six weeks, and I'm just about off crutches. I'll be wearing an awesome stability boot for a while.

Stay inspired.
