Looking Back and Looking Forward Part 5

2013-2015 were huge huge transition-ary times. In 2013 I was working through cosmetology school and graduated in August of that year the rest of that year and 2014 were spent trying to figure out my life.  I decided to quit this blog on Nov 4th (I think) of 2014 and all lay dormant until I started deleting posts… Come next post I will be unveiling the new direction of the site…  Since I am a  sentimental person I couldn’t just let my dear, departed, deleted posts go without a proper homage… So here is part 5 a recap of posts and my life for the last 3 years! I barely blogged during this time.


2013 The year I finished school and tried to figure out where I stood in the world of hair… Ultimately I realized that hair and I were never to be people and fashion are my passions in a way that hair will never be and never has…. This year was also a year of personal upheaval my sister was in a very bad accident and was in the ICU for a few months and the hospital for many more but she has bounced back. She is such an inspiration to me and many others…

Jan 7th 2013 Wore this to the hospital to visit my sister… Things in life may be up in the air but two things to remember, God is always in control and you can dress up for any occasion. =)

Jan 9th 2015 Sunday, church outfit! I was in LOVE with this top it’s so pretty. Never underestimate the power of a sunny color during a less than sunny time in life.




Jan 15th 2013 My Birthday Dress!!! Yes I wore this on my Birthday but I also wore it just because it was fun to wear…  it was very fitting with my 90’s fashion dreams of the time.


Jan 30th 2013 Another outfit I wore to visit my sis while she was in the hospital… I felt like a million bucks in this look =)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Feb 6th 2013 Twas not so cold winter that year and I always love to wear my Levi’s denim when I head out and about… To be honest I would probably wear something pretty similar to this right now.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMarch 25th 2013 had to capture the shoulder of this blouse they were sequins which at the time was quite exciting… Details are fun!


April 10th 2015 What I wore to Church. The jacket is pretty fab and I still love to wear it out and about ❤


September 3rd 2013 4 days after I had just graduated from Aveda Institute. So I did a post showing off my portfolio. I did a photoshoot with a beautiful  classmate of mine Ciara and earlier I was a model in school runway show I was a lizard lady and it was pretty awesome! All photos were shot by the talented Brian James.




Me as the lizard lady… Twas a fun experience.


October 8th 2015, Beach day with a friend =) Good times and pleasant memories.

Asrtfully Artista Soooo cool!

November 30th 2013 I turned 23!!! I had some dear friends over to celebrate the coming of another year. That birthday dress was so fun to wear and  the print is out of this world ❤




2014 was a year of self discovery and overcoming fears… and I only had 1 post that year from May of 2014 the outfit that I wore to my brothers scholarship dinner.

so here it is… =)

2015 Was an interesting year I had huge dreams and plans that I did not know how to bring into reality… So I studied my heart out and got stuck on the hamster wheel of knowledge consumption because truth be told taking action can  be hard it requires a totally different mindset than consuming information. But I did accomplish some pretty cool things… In Feb I helped with the costume design for a student film my friend Trevor put together. You can watch it here! I never thought I could design mermaid tails but I can and I did! It was while I was working on that film that I realized how much I love styling and how I love to style for woman and there lives, more than for stories and but rather for life… I am so glad I tried that and did something new.


I love to hear what you think!
