A Dream Come True…

A Dream Come True…

I’ve always wanted to be a part of a campaign. Not just any campaign, one with a message, one where the products I was modeling meant something. On October 26, I had the opportunity to be in a jewelry campaign for Iris Jewelry called “The only color we see is gold.” The brand stands for unity, love, and diversity and in the studio, I felt just that. Every model there had a unique and diverse look to them and you can feel the love and positivity throughout the entire room. What was even more special was that my good friend Valine was the photographer for this shoot.

Enough talking, check out the photos below and be sure to check out Iris Jewelry online to purchase a few dope pieces.

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?
