Daya by Zendaya Bomber

Hello lovelies!

I apologize for the delay on this look, it was suppose to be up on my blog way sooner but here it is.

I have to say this is one of my favorite looks ever and its super simple to put together and comfortable.

I purchased the blush bomber  from Daya by Zendaya. A clothing line started by the outspoken, inspirational, and beautiful Zendaya Coleman.

Not only did I want to support her because she is an amazing role model and a black business owner, but also because I never saw a bomber as chic as this one. Her prices are also affordable!

The color is gorgeous and it is long! Leave it zipped for a chic look in itself or if you leave it open its a perfect jacket to throw over almost anything…dresses, a top and skirt/pants, or how I wore it.

I paired the bomber with a black crop top from Charlotte Russe, black leggings from Forever 21, and black boots from Nordstrom.

New Growth Post

It’s a warm winter day in Baltimore today! I hope everyone is enjoying the weather where they are or at least staying as warm as possible!

Today’s post focuses on natural hair ❤ I have been natural for almost 2 years now and it is one of the best decisions I made for my hair!

It is healthier, thicker, and longer than ever before. Below you will see shots of my 4c fro ❤

Posing in Plum

Hello my beautiful readers! Happy Monday and I hope all is well 🙂

Recently, I had two really random realizations. Hope you caught that awesome alliteration in that previous sentence btw lolIMG_20160826_140054

First realization: I don’t own much purple!!! I didn’t realize it until I had to work an event this past Saturday and my internship supervisor asked me to wear purple. I said “No problem, I have purple.”

As I scanned my closet, I realized…I don’t really have purple!! I have one pair of purple jeans and that’s all and that was pretty weird and amazing to me. So I invested in a causal purple and white tank top and a plum bodycon dress pictured in this post today.

Second realization: I do the same poses in all of my pictures!!! If I really want to break into the fashion world, which I do, I have to work on my poses. So I practiced a few in the mirror and I really like the one pictured above right.

IMG_20160825_062800In the picture, I am wearing my plum sleeveless bodycon dress mentioned above and I paired the dress with black Steve Madden pointy toe flats. I decided to do a little more with my arms so I ran my hand through my fro and snapped the selfie. Pretty decent pose if I do say so myself ^-^

These 2 realizations may not seem like a big deal but they were both pretty cool discoveries! So hopefully you will see more purple hues in my pictures in the near future and some more really creative poses.

I was in a Fashion Show!

The weekend that recently passed I was in a fashion show! I got to pick the theme and pull an outfit together to rock on the runway.fs2

Since I love weddings, I decided to go with a bridal theme. I wore my old graduation dress from highschool, which is actually a real wedding dress!

I then accessorized the look with a veil and a fake flower bouquet. I wore black chunky heels and a beautiful pearl choker necklace.

I wore a little bit of makeup, which is new to me, but something super fun to dabble in every once in a while! I had on Covergirl BB Cream, rose blush, and bold red lipstick.

I decided to go with my fro out instead of puffballs. It’s a simpler look that I felt went well with my theme.

For the event, I  had to perform a talent. I love acting and improv so I did a memorized version of Tyra Banks yelling at Tiffany Richards on the elimination episode of ANTM Cycle 4. It was a lot of fun!model

I designed my own gloves from a t-shirt that was given to me by the fashion show coordinators. This show was partially for fun but also a big deal! (pardon the bad quality of the picture to the right, I was in motion!)

Based on my photoshoot, talent I performed and how I worked the runway, I have a chance to get a job in the modeling, film, and/or tv industry. The first place prize gets a year long contract which is an agreement to try and find a job for me in one of the industries mentioned above.

Professional agents will look over everything that was filmed (photos, talent, runway) and on September 10th I find out if I am the finalist for the prize. Wish me luck ❤

Playful Puffballs

I went to the hairdresser recently to get my ends trimmed and to make sure my hair was healthy overall…which it is! Yay! ^-^

I was looking for something fun and different to do with my hair and I really looovveeeddd the idea of puffballs and luckily my hairdresser made that happen for me.

My new look for a bit is 2 mini puffs with a part straight down the middle and then have the rest of my hair out and curly in the back.

It’s a super easy style to maintain and I think it is super adorable. My ultimate goal is to have 2 huge puffballs, but for now I am rocking my mini puffs.

The picture included in this post to the bottom right is of IMG_20160803_185740Shawn and I after our hairdresser date. Fresh from the hairdresser, with our ends trimmed and feeling beautiful 🙂

The other photo pictured top left is from a photo shoot I did recently for my fashion show that will take place Saturday, as mentioned before in my previous post.

In that picture I am also rocking a little bit of pink blush and purple lipstick, which is a new look for me.

So far I am loving my cute mini puffballs and look forward to more growth!!! ❤

 

 

My Princess Look ~

A couple of days ago I auditioned to be in a fashion show and I made it! The fashion show is this Saturday and it is at one of the best malls in Baltimore – Towson Town Center. tutu

A post about my fashion show and the outfits I wear will be up sometime this week, but this post is all about the outfit I wore to the audition.

I wore a burgundy cutout crop top, which I love. I think the color worked quite well with my skin complexion.

I paired the crop top with a tutu. Yes, I said it a poofy ballerina tutu. I got this tutu on sale at Charlotte Russe for just $2.99. Amazing right!?!

The tutu is white tulle and knee length. I paired this outfit with black pointy toe flats. Together, the outfit actually looked like a dress, which is pretty awesome.

For accessories I wore rhinestone cuffed earrings and my usual pearl bracelets. Also, my fro was on full display as well ❤

I am super excited for my fashion show on Saturday and even more excited to tell all of you lovelies about it!
