WHAT’S UP GUYS!!!!

So I have a few things I want to chat about today, one of them being this shoot( Posted below) has been published in Creators Magazine, which is SUPER amazing and I’m so thankful. Huge awesome milestone. I can’t believe it!!!

Alright moving on to some more important things. I’ve been wanting to talk about growing up and going through phases, but essentially finding yourself.

Let’s start in the awkward phases of middle school where we are going through puberty getting to know ourselves, getting to know our peers, finding your friend groups and finding out your hobbies. This stage is super important, at least it was for me. I’ve always loved the things I love from a young age, I mean from the age of 6 I was singing and dancing everyday, but I also watched as I grew up… I watched my moms style and her fashion and that really inspired me to love fashion. But then in middle school I really got into loving playing the guitar and singing covers of songs it just became my life. I would sing and dance in the garage at my house everyday. This phase was really about finding our passions. Now I know not everyone is the same in that aspect… sometimes it takes awhile and that’s okay. That’s what we always get so stressed about later on or getting things done by a certain age and having this timeline. It’s completely okay to not know too, and to take your time doing so.

When I started my blog which was in high school, so I was not really sure who I was. I really just started it because I loved fashion and I loved writing. My blog has never been about just selling things or doing it because everyone else is doing it. I started this back in 2013 and I’m SO happy I did. It has brought me so many wonderful opportunities and experiences. I’m so thankful and grateful these platforms exist. Reasoning behind my blog is that I wanted to inspire and motivate young individuals like myself to never let anything stop them from pursuing what they love. Growing up in a small town was really hard in that aspect because if you did something like this or sing/dance and want to pursue it you were crazy, or the odd one out. It is possible and doing what you love even if it may be scary or taking a risk despite the criticism you can do it. I’m that voice in the back of your head saying, don’t listen to what people think or their opinions should they be negative. Listen to yourself, listen to your heart. More importantly LOVE the life your building. LOVE every step of the way.

This brings me to my next point. Through every different phase of my life, and yours too. We are finding ourselves, we are finding what we like and what we don’t like. We are finding the groups of people we thrive around and the groups of people we don’t. We are finding the music that makes our souls sing. We are finding the styles of clothing and trends we love and things we don’t. People have said I do too much and to find one things and stick to that. Excuse me… but what?! Everything I do I love with all my heart. I love a lot of different styles, I love fashion and beauty and music. That’s what has made me the person I am today, I’ve learned that I’m not just one thing. I’m everything that I love built in one and again that’s what makes me… Me. That’s what makes you… You.

 

Get out there and build your best life. Don’t let anyone tell you any different.

Feel The Fear.

Feel The Fear.

IMG_5608IMG_5577IMG_5576Welcome..

Well here we are, I’m gonna tell you guys I’m scared shitless for trying to achieve a dream I’ve had since I was 6. No one ever talks about it,

Let me tell you why, now most people don’t say they are scared shitless, but I’m in this weird place where I’m excited as hell to be doing things that I’ve dreamt of and doing things that I love but I’m also so scared. Being scared in a place like this consists of being fearful to let people down and not be as great as I want to and hope to be. I don’t want to let people down, like my parents and everyone that I’m working with. I also don’t want to let people down that look up to me and people that I inspire. Most importantly I don’t want to let myself down.. and I think that’s one of the biggest things. Having the courage within yourself to achieve your dreams and goals and enough fire under your ass to never give up and never stop, no matter what gets in your way.

We are all scared to some extent at this point in our lives, I mean at any point in your life, with whatever you’re doing, It’s okay to be fearful, just don’t let it get in the way of doing everything you can to achieve your goals. It’s almost like you get this fluttery feeling in your chest like when your excited but also nervous. It’s been feeling like that to me and at times it’s SO annoying. Over the past couple months I’ve definitely become more of a homebody trying to stay focused and not let myself get distracted by all other things in life, because it can be draining to always be ON. By that I mean you can’t always be 100% for everything. You may want to be but you’ll just end up draining yourself and that version of you isn’t one you want to end up like 24/7. I just recently listened to a podcast by Katy Bellotte and she was taking about how this generation is the “Burnout” generation. Which is so true and you guys should all listen to it. She’s basically saying how we are the generation that doesn’t stop and we literally keep going and going and going till we either exhaust ourselves, burnout or get in bad mental states because of how much we are doing and committing ourselves to get done… to make something of ourselves. We have become the generation that doesn’t sleep and thinks “It’s Cool” which let me tell you is draining in itself. Don’t get me wrong I am all for work your ass off and do everything you can to achieve your goals and dreams, but don’t forget to take care of yourself along the way. The repercussions for not taking care of yourself are far worse than making the time to do it.

 

” This letter is to you.

The you that’s had a rough week. The you that seems to be under constant storm clouds. The you that feels invisible. The you that doesn’t know how much longer you can hold on. The you that has lost faith. The you that always blames yourself for everything that goes wrong. To You.

You are incredible. You make this world al title bit more wonderful. You have so much potential and so many things left to do.. You have time. Better things are coming your way, so please hang in there. You can do it. ”

Hello lovelies. Happy Fall!!! I love this time of year, but honestly who doesn’t!! I’m really missing the fall weather back home for sure, it’s so weird it still being like 80 degrees in November! I’m trying to work In all my black wardrobe from working at MAC into my outfits now, since I’m not working for MAC Anymore (A whole other blog post) I’m living for these skirts by Free People, they have so many different ones and different colors! Paired with these amazing boots I found for a steal at The Rack, I love the pop of color they give. This Fall I’m trying to pair colors you wouldn’t normally wear together! I find it kind of fun and a new twist on a typical outfit. Here we have Burgundy paired with a darker green on my purse, nothing too crazy but it makes the color pop against the black outfit.

 

On a totally separate note, I’ve been writing so much music lately… I’m on a roll and I know I say this a lot but I can’t wait to share all these songs with the world. The process of making this album is like rebuilding myself and telling my story in a way I never thought was possible. It’s taken all my thoughts that I’ve never shared with the world and turning it into songs that are quite literally coming straight from my heart. I’m learning so much about music and it makes me so happy. There’s nothing better than learning while being so hands on and actually doing it. I’m right in the midst of all things music and it’s always what I’ve wanted my life to be like.

Stay tuned! Thanks so much for reading:)

BODYSUIT: Urban Outfitters JEANS: Free People SHOES: Express (Similar) BELT: B-Low The Belt SUNGLASSES: American Eagle BANDANA: Urban Outfitters 

 

Happy Monday everyone!!! Today is the start of FALL OUTFITS!!! So as many of you know, I’m in Arizona and it’s definitely going to be a struggle finding some fall outfits that I don’t die in, but I’m gonna do it to fit the season here! As I did with this outfit, since it’s still 90+ degrees we are transitioning with fall colors. I’m obsessed with this burnt Orange color right now, it’s so beautiful and it compliments literally everyone! This bodysuit is so versatile as well and comes in a few other colors. I’ve already worn it with so many different bottoms! For those of you who have similar body type to me I feel like plunging necklines are super flattering because I don’t really have much “shape” to my body, so I’ve been loving this type of neckline! Pairing this outfit with my fave jeans right now as well as the belt I haven’t stopped wearing! I love Free People Jeans, they’re some of my faves and they don’t wear out, which I love. They hold their shape as well!

I hope you guys enjoyed this outfit and have a great start to your week!! ūüôā

DENIM OVERALLS    BODYSUIT  SCARF  CROP TOP  EARRINGS

Hey Guys! It’s almost the 4th of July!!! I love this holiday mainly because my whole family usually gets together and has a big ole’ BBQ… Which includes lots of super awesome food, pool time, lots of laughs ( My family is hilarious when we all get together) ¬†I mean seriously should have our own reality show… haha jk jk since I lived In the country back home we got to shoot off tons of awesome fireworks and it was just a blast.

I like to keep it pretty casual on the 4th just because it’s always really hot and you want to be comfy while hanging out at a BBQ but still very fashionable. This outfit I have paired here SO quick and easy and I’m obsessed with this overall romper, now you can throw this on with just about any top and be good to go I am showing you two different ones today and the white body suit just works so well because it makes the outfit like I said very casual but still cute and pairing your 4th of July attire like a neck scarf, red lips and some cute earrings(Mine have stars on them) and you’re good to go, I know you can’t see the full outfit… I’m still looking for a photographer! But Some white sneakers would be just perfect!

Again we have the denim overalls, but this top dresses up the look a little bit more and I just love it, while still being holiday inspired and red you can pair some cute lil’ booties with this one and be good to go as well as a red lip and a hat!

 

I hope you all have a fun and safe 4th of July!!!!

 

XOXO

Add A Little Flare In your step

JEANS: American Eagle BODYSUIT: Express JACKET: Hollister BELT: Forever 21 
I’ve had major technical difficulties and this post was suppose to go up a couple days ago and never posted!!! I apologize¬†
Anywho, I’m in love with wearing these bootcut jeans, I haven’t worn them like I said in my last post since like freshman year of high school! Crazy!!! These just add something totally different then the casual skinny jeans. Pairing them with this low cut bodysuit just make it work extremely well. Whenever I have something more flowy on the bottom, I have to have something fitted on the top and Vice;Versa. On a cloudy day like this day this jacket definitely comes in handy, It’s like a little fuzzy blanket, But beware this thing sheds like no other if you’re wearing black. I was not aware and was covered in white fur.. lol But other than that it’s such a cute staple to have in your closet just maybe wash it before you wear it!¬†
I have two belts like this one from express and this one from Forever 21 and they are such perfect dupes for the B-Low the Belt one. I love that you can take an otherwise casual outfit and dress it up with a belt like this. 
COACHELLA Is coming up you guys and I want to hear what you guys want to see style wise from me, I won’t be going, BUT I super wish I was!!! I have some amazing festival wear to rock for you all, but if there’s anything in particular you want to see from me, let me know.. I’d love to rock it for ya’ll!¬†

Hippie Vibes

JACKET: American Eagle DRESS: American Eagle SHOES: Target HAT: American Eagle
Working with¬†American Eagle Outfitters¬†As part of their campaign¬†#WeAllCan¬†Something that makes me feel like I have all the power in the world is performing. It makes me feel invincible. Sharing something so close to your heart with the world and the people that watch is a feeling like no other, but That moment when you’re waiting backstage right before you go on, right at the height of all your nerves and your adrenaline is pumping, then you go out and see all the smiling faces waiting to watch a story come to life, all is right with the world in those moments. Do something that scares you, that you’ve never done before you never know what you could be missing out on
I can’t wait for the warmer weather you guys, all the snow is FINALLY Melting here in Washington!! YAY!!! WE got so much snow this winter it was crazy, probably the most snow since I’ve been alive! Haha any who loving being able to wear pieces like this and I can see already so many different ways to wear this dress this summer! When I go through and find all the links to clothes for you guys it never fails, I always end up shopping and finding new things and I’m like dang it that wasn’t my mission! hah American Eagle has some amazing pieces for spring and summer, their swim suits too right now are bomb.com! But since it is more on the chilly side still I loved being able to pair this dress with this jean jacket! Let me know what other trends and outfits you all want to see, I’ll be happy to do them!:)¬†
