Behind the Scenes: Fashion Photoshoot

Behind the Scenes: Fashion Photoshoot

Two weeks ago I teamed up with Pamela for a photoshoot. The photo shoot started out wonderfully, the sky was beautiful, the birds were chirping UNTIL the skies opened and down came a whole lot of rain!!! It was literally only 10 minutes into the shoot when the torrential downpour began. But honestly, two creatives, a camera, and rain…we made it work. The outcome: STUNNING photos. Check out some shots and a little #bts vide below. Enjoy!

Music has played a huge role in my life ever since I could remember. I was super young and I remember my father strumming his acoustic guitar playing some song he came up with. My mother would wake me up every morning with a little tune she made up; my brothers and I have a unique taste in music with a wide range of genres and we have our parents to thank.

For me, music is an escape. If I’m having a crappy day where my anxiety is on 100, I turn to music to help me get through my day; if I’m having a great ass day full of accomplishments and productivity, I turn to music to keep my hyped attitude going. I wanted to share my current playlist with you; this one’s for those days that you just want to listen to something relaxing and chill.  Hit the link below and enjoy!!

Finding Inspiration in Lost Files

Finding Inspiration in Lost Files

As a busy young woman, I find that I’m literally spreading my time super thin. Whether it’s with my office job or my hobby, it can be very mentally draining. Sometimes I want to just give up and not push myself so hard, but then I find little things that motivate me and inspire me to keep on keeping on.

I’ve been in a small creative funk lately and today I decided to go through my camera roll in my phone (who else does this when seeking inspo?) to see what catches my eye and help get my creative juices flowing. While scrolling through my album, I came across some shots I took last year of a fashion event for MATCHESFASHION and a photo gallery for a good friend of mine, Valine; a super talented young photographer. I wanted to share those photos with you all, maybe someone else finds inspiration in them also.

How do you guys cope with a creative funk? What do you turn to motivate you?

Sunday’s Are For Oversized Hoodies…

Sunday’s Are For Oversized Hoodies…

I recently received something that I have been obsessing over: The Weeknd x PUMA oversized hoodie. The hoodie is part of The Weeknd’s third collaborative collection with PUMA centered around “Crafted Military.” Constructed with premium materials, the collection is definitely a must in your Fall/Winter wardrobe. Check out the photos below where I paired the hoodie with some distressed Zara jeans, classic black Old Skool Vans, a Zara puffer and my trusty Taikan Everything.

Thank you PUMA for the oh-so-comfortable sweater!

A photographer, travel blogger and singer…

Hi all, so it’s been some time since I shared with you some features that I’ve done. In the recent month, I had the opportunity to interview three pretty dope and influential people. Let me start with the MISSBISH features: First, DAFINA; she is a Swedish-Albanian singer/songwriter who has such a unique R&B flow. From her lyrics to her sense of style, everything about DAFINA screams queen! Click here to read all about her! Next, Johnny Utah; an urban/street style photographer based here in my city, NYC. I learned so much about him while interviewing him; how he got into photography, the equipment he uses and his thoughts about “iphone-ography.” Feature here!

Lastly, my interview with Jennifer Morilla for Latina.com. Not only does this young Latina travel to amazing breathtaking places, but she also provides fresh, drinkable water to 100 people for up to five years! Learn more about her here!

It’s been such a busy month for me, I don’t think I’ve had a good nights sleep all this month. But it is all worth it; I got to learn about three amazing people who in their own way, make a mark in the world.

iPhone X Unboxing

iPhone X Unboxing

All day yesterday I was ansy at work, waiting for it to hit 5pm so I could rush home to hold my new iPhone. If you know me, then you know I always have to have the LATEST iPhone. 

As soon as I got home, I set up my station to film an unboxing of the iPhone X for my YouTube channel. 

Keep in mind that this is literally my first ever unboxing of any sort so cut me some slack. Click the link to check out my video!!
