The Beauty Within: On Self-Creation

2024 Update

2023 was the year of shedding every part of myself that I thought was me, to learn more about who I am meant to be. I went from defining myself by my work/ title to realizing I was looking for much more.

I looked within to find all of the colors inside of me and started painting. I found Gerhard Richter's abstract work and realized we were speaking the same language. All of my years being obsessed with color from a cosmetics ecommerce producer standpoint would eventually help me in my new life working in home decor. There was something inside of me that wanted to be heard and I had to escape my former life to be able to hear it.

  • Psych Blues 5/6 film (love this film in Vegas)
  • Bodysuit by dbleudazzled
  • Cadolle lace crop top
  • Bandeau bra with part of a Rosamosario swimsuit attached (my creation)

The Beauty Within: On Self-Creation

Not this. Not this. Letting go of everything I thought I was to become who I was meant to be. Learning how to live a more simple life, discovering the joy of only being in the present moment and expressing my truth via painting and art. In the process of re-inventing myself and re-creating my life. (look features @dbleudazzled bodysuit)

Back To My Roots

Before we go new, let's go old. This is an old photo taken by Vila Ray from 2007. We are at Alta Plaza Park in San Francisco. Letting some new ideas coalesce in my head and will get to writing/ actual blog posting soon. Thanks for being along for the ride!

Fashion, photography + beauty blog posts coming soon 

Will definitely be featuring some film photography and more shots from Maui! The swimsuit in this shot is from Rosamosario. This was shot at Charley Young Beach in Kihei, Maui. I'll be posting more of their pieces as I get a chance to shoot them!
