    My First 4 Items from Rent the Runway

    rent the runway Cleobella handbags pom pom williamsburg bag

    After watching a documentary on fast fashion, I am trying to be more mindful of where my clothes come from. The problem is… it is so expensive to get sustainable fashion! I can see why I did not think about this for a while. It will take time to transition to that great length, but I am beginning to open myself to the possibilities of creative ways to wear less fast fashion. One thing I can think of is maybe thrift shopping to find vintage clothing, as fast fashion boomed a lot in the 1990s. It would be great to get staple pieces from the past; But for now, I…

    OOTD Work & Play the Thai Way

    Hey Beauties and Beaus, I loved going to Thailand!!! Asian culture is what I grew up with (I watched sailor moor religiously and still do!). Even my Japanese co-worker says I have some of their mannerisms (smiling when nervous).   I wanted to show you what I wore when going into mental health facilities and going sightseeing with my class. This outfit is styled by Forever 21! We needed to wear all black because their King passed away and they were in mourning. This was to show honor and respect. With any fashion style, you have to add a touch of your personality, despite the restrictions you may have in…

    Top 10 photoshoot locations in Thailand

    Hi Friends,  Thailand is a great place to obtain a wide range of photo ops. I went to Thailand in 2017 for a study abroad class, and I stayed with my classmates in Bangkok.  We had our own personal guide: Dr. Paul and his wife Dr. Nop. Within a few days, we saw so many things on top of going to mental health facilities (click here to see that blog post). I think it’s important to know someone in the country you’re traveling to, because you will get the most out of your stay! Here are some highlights I recommend for food, photo ops and sightseeing per Dr’s orders 🙂…

    Thirty Four-Ward

    Well, I have been officially 34 for a week now, and I feel not as much changed. All I can think about was the last 10 years of my life and the amazing things that have surfaced to lead me in this direction of blogging, fashion, and theatre arts. From working as a nanny and a private investigator (this will take another post to describe lol), to going back to graduate school and processing a lot of pain and trauma, I feel as if things are moving forward. Becoming a participator truly is better than being a spectator! I just wanted to share my birthday plans: Shopping at Miss Lola…
