Well, some sad news for me... I recently found out that I will be losing my job at the end of the month, as the candy store I work at will be closing. Needless to say, I am a little sad about this. Not only is it my main source of income, but I enjoyed working there for the year I got to be a part of the company and learn about the candy industry. However, since the other job I have is part time, that means I will have the chance to do a lot more modeling until I find a full-time position.

I recently did a photo shoot with a Seattle photographer, Eric Paguio of It was my first time shooting with him, and I had an idea to do an editorial type theme with flower garlands and neutral coloured outfits. We also played with lighting afterward, and these photos were the result. I had a lot of fun meeting him, his photographer friend Molly, and his studio kitty cat Peanut!

I have a shoot later today that will be a fashion editorial at a rocky beach. Should be fun, and super cold... it's very windy, drizzly, and overcast today. Welcome to Washington State!

Bremerton Shoot

Recently did a photo shoot with one of my oldest friends I've had since I started modeling, Mike Bay of Posted a photo on again. :P I just got these platform Converse, plus a fun skirt that I'm sure my tenth-grade self would have loved. So I put them together with my trusty leather jacket to create a fun urban look, perfect for shooting downtown.

Mike recently had one of his pieces featured in Bremerton's Creative Visions Gallery. It was an awesome art  show that featured pieces from some select talented artists from all over the Pacific Northwest. I definitely left feeling inspired and proud of where I am from!

Hope you like the outfit and photos.

Things I'm Loving This Month/Birthday Challenge!

Hello lovelies!

Since this month is my birthday... I decided to make a wish list! I'll be twenty years old on March 26... oh man. Old lady status. No longer can I write myself off as a flighty, irresponsible teenager. Just kidding. Kinda.

Anyway! These are the things that I'm lusting after this month. Hoping my friends and family see this and take a hint or two. ;)

1. Hell Bunny cancun dress. Roses, cactuses (cacti?), skulls, guns, pretty pin-up girls... Is a description really necessary? This dress is badass. I need it. That is all.

2. Black Milk unicorn leggings! These come in black or white, I love the black ones though. They're covered in cute little pink unicorns and just absolutely adorable. I'd love to rock these at work. (Side tangent: My friend and I were discussing these mythical creatures the other day, and asking, why are they called unicorns? Why not unihorn? Since uni means "one" in Latin... and they have one horn... der der der. Anyway, so we looked it up and apparently "corn" comes from the Latin root "cornus," which means horn. BAM! Bet you didn't know that. Now you can astonish your friends with your newfound knowledge of the Latin language.) Anyhow, these leggings are definitely something I'd love to open up on my birthday. I'm sure I'd be wearing these all the time.

3. "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children." This is a book by Ransom Riggs. Every time I go to the bookstore I pick this up and read another chapter. I'd love to have it so I can read the whole thing! It's equal parts mystery, thriller, and historical. eerie and sad and interesting... I'm only halfway through it though, so I don't know how it's gonna end. Definitely keeps me in suspense though, and I've never read anything like it.

4. Twilight Esme Barbie doll. I've always loved Barbies since I got my first one at five years old. But one thing I've noticed is that there have never been any Barbie dolls with pale skin tones. When I saw this doll, I honestly didn't know it was from Twilight. I've never even seen the movies. I was just drawn to it because it was so pretty! And I'd like to add a porcelain-skinned doll to my collection.

5. Jeffrey Campbell x Black Milk galaxy damsel wedges. These are so cute. I'd wear them with just about anything! Dress them up with a little black dress and tights, or more casual with skinny jeans and a loose-fitting sweater. I like them just a little bit better than the litas because they have higher platforms, and not as many girls wear them. And as much as I love galaxy print, I don't want to overdo it. These shoes provide just a little pop of intergalactic prettiness. :)

Although these are some "things" that I'd like to have, what I really want for my birthday is to have a day off from work and spend some time with my family. I was also inspired by a story I read about someone who spent their birthday not as a "me me me" day, but instead went out to do random acts of kindness for others. So I decided that since I'm turning twenty, I'll challenge myself to do twenty kind things for other people. It's something I've always wanted to spend a day doing, so I think it will be both a fun and memorable birthday - not just because I got what I wanted and partied hard, but because I'm doing something positive and making people happy! I'm excited. Other than that, I don't have much in the way of plans. We'll see what happens!
