I am officially back to freelancing!!! And I could not be happier!!
I learned allot the last few months, about myself and my work ethic. I stayed because I believed in it. But in retrospect, it wasnt worth it. The toxicity of that place and their lack of "culture" really did a number on me, both mentally and physically. Always put yourself and your happiness first! You deserve it. <3 The best thing to come from that job was the few solid friends I made, who I now create meaningful art with. And a bitchen skin care routine....seriously my skin has never looked so good. ;)
It has taken me awhile to announce it, because it honestly took me awhile to shed that negativity. Im back on my grind, loving every second of it. With a new found sense of purpose and knowledge, YA GIRL IS BACK.
Im trying to find the time to shoot more personal content like this. I want to share my favorite new beauty products, my first impressions of makeup, and makeup looks. I want to work on turning this blog into a sick beauty blog. Ill still be featuring weekly glams, and photoshoots that im working on.
Ive been feeling really adventurous with my makeup and style recently, and as I experiment with my over all look, id love to share them here.
I also would love to hear from you! What do you want to see more of? As a beauty professional, im happy to pass down tips and tricks that ive picked up through out the years. My comment section on each post is always open!
Im not over the Fenty hype. Im wearing the Pro Filt'r primer and foundation. Also Trophy wife is the only highlighter that I wear now a days. Im also wearing Milani Cosmetics Contour stick and lipstick.
I thrifted half this outfit. The only thing not thrifted is the body suit from a random shop in the Santee Alley.
Thank you so much Kiyana for hanging, and taking these rad photos!

We left LA at 3am. Our car loaded with gear, snacks, Haole (the dog) and 4 very sleepy people. This was a half-kinda-sorta impromptu photoshoot. Maya and i knew we were going to the desert, but everything eles kinda fell into place. We somehow convinced our friend, who is a very talented actor and model, to get up at 2:30am and adventure with us to Joshua Tree. Our other friend Chris was visiting us in town, and managed to get him to come with us and shoot video of this little trip.
Not only did we shoot a million looks, but we checked out allot of cool hiking trails and drove down sketchy dirt roads. It was perfection.
