Jimni Cricket!

Soooo my lovelies, I did a shoot with the DJ Jimni Cricket! She's spun for tons of shows around the Seattle area and has also done many dances for Sakuracon and the like. : ) She's super energetic and fun! I'll be adding more photos to the set, but for now, here are the ones I have on FB.

Feel free to tell me what you think of it in the comments.

Also, I went to a party thing last night and met a bunch of cool people. : D

Musings 1

So I'm also kind of an obsessive person when it comes to thinking about the universe.. I'll be spouting random musings from time to time. Enjoy my cynical-and-not-really-organized thoughts.


Why must we grow? Why must we care about things? Why must everything we do have a purpose? Life is like calves lining up to go into a slaughterhouse- lining up to get snuffed out, one by one, until our generation is gone. Lining up to reach our bitter ends with a mere instant of a life behind us out of infinity.

It may be years before the rest of the human race realizes this and finally wakes up to see that life maybe isn’t about death or the journey to it.. but some may argue that that is our one and only purpose. Others would say it’s to live for God.. but who is God? Isn’t he just a being we pin our hopes and dreams on to and cling to when we don’t know what to do? The one we don’t blame for bad things? The one people kill in the name of? He is exactly that. And he is not a he, he is nothing. He doesn’t exist in this reality- not in a way we could understand. His only purpose is to be our bulletin board for our fears. A telephone pole for our “Lost Soul: Call If Found” posters. A sign with balloons screaming for the extra baggage to be taken away for good. He’s that one thing that is for pure use, nothing more.

If God weren’t a he, he would be an it. This it would be the it of all its.. the one that sums up the entire human race, the entire population of planets, solar systems, galaxies, and universes in our reality and the ones beyond. The collective consciousness of our race.. it reminds me of a time when the 2000’s were the future.. when alien races would investigate the human race and we could get so flustered and embarrassed by our lack of knowledge of the outer world that we would immediately waste our largest ammunitive powers on anything that doesn’t walk, talk, or look like a person.

It is this fear that we so readily run to when faced with the unknown.. call it evolution, call it instinct- I don’t care what label is placed upon the irrational. The unknown shouldn’t be feared but relished… the longer we live, the less is the unknown, but also the more is unknown. As I have said many times (and so has become my mantra), Thinking is the bane to understanding. The more we muse and maroon over romantic ideas of other worlds and the above powers, the less we actually know for certain about this tiny world of ours. And yet, in the infancy of knowledge, now called more developed, has deteriorated. In the ancient times, when people knew what they knew and saw what they saw understood more about the world than we do in present day times. Things were simpler, and therefore easier to question, easier to understand.. with all this jumble of statistics and results we call Science, our world has begun to shift into a time of complications. Nothing but complications and questions to prior beliefs.. its aggravating to think that people think they know everything there is to know. Even if we do have the ways of measuring how old a rock is, how does that prove how long the universe has or has not existed? What do we have as a base of this? What do we have it to compare to? What would it matter anyway? I’m convinced that there is no way to fully understand the complexity and vastness of this universe with our capabilities. We are a limited race mentally, physically, socially, and in mostly every other way a race could be limited, and yet we strive to understand what we cannot. We think of the world as being a conquerable article. Is it?

Turquoise Mascara

I know I'm not supposed to post the same day twice, but I can't resist! I decided to dig through my makeup today and found my turquoise mascara again. This look is clean but surprising and kinda cool. : ) Keep the rest of the face simple- I used face illuminator from Benefit (HighBeam) on the nose and cheeks and some lip gloss from Bobbi Brown.

♥ ColorTrend Waterproof Mascara in Turquoise (by Avon)

New Photoshoot

SKYLINE on facebook.

I did this shoot a couple days ago but haven't posted about it on the blog yet. : ) Enjoy!

Model is Liz, wardrobe is a combo between 3 people's closets. I'm still getting used to knowing what the settings do to the camera.. and I've rediscovered the joy of raw file editing. SO much easier! You can get great results without much graininess or weird color balance. If your camera has the option to save raw files as well as jpegs, USE THE RAWS. Raw files are generally labeled as .cr2 etc. I THINK you have to have a plugin to make it work. You can find out more here.

Wardrobe Credits:

♥ Shoes- Cole Haan wedges
♥ Pants- J.Jill

Makeup used:

♥ L'oreal Bare Naturale Powder Concealer in fair/light
♥ Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Melon
♥ Revlon ColorStay 12-hour Eyeshadow in Sterling Rose
♥ Maybelline LashStilletto in Soft Black
♥ Benefit non-Fiction Liquid Foundation in Volume 1
♥ StyliStyle Retractable Waterproof Liner in Black (used on crease of lids and inner rims)

The Beginning

This is me, so you have a visualization of who's writing this.

Has anyone noticed how the birds chirp? How the sun warms the earth? How the grass waves gently in the breeze? This world is so interesting- from people to plants, this world is filled with complex little networks of emotion and movement that one can begin to see when everything else fits together perfectly. I think this is called something like enlightenment. I've begun to see the world in a different way the past few years and have truly realized exactly what I want to do with my life. Kind of.

I've been obsessed with fashion for at least 3 years now and go shopping at online sales and outlet malls whenever I get the chance because I'm hellishly poor. I always spend my money as soon as I get it and never get to save to buy anything. xD I'm sure some people have been there before. I guess I'm starting this blog as a place to put down all my inspirations and such when it comes to life, art, and particularly, fashion.

Starting off, I'm going to write a bit about ME. Yes, ME.

I'm 17 years young, want to be a psych major if I don't end up being an awesome amazing famous photographer by the time I graduate from my community college, and love cats, fashion, philosophy, and other things that hipsters like. Mod furniture, shopping, music... yeah. Kinda cliche, but I don't care.

I'm not exactly special, but I'm good at a lot of things. I play the harp, I write stories (rarely), I draw half-naked women, I photograph pretty people, I play with makeup, I spend way too much time on the internet... yeah. You'll find out more once I write more, I guess. :D

OKAY. People like pictures when they read blogs, so here you go.
I drew this. See? Half naked woman. :D Awesomesauce.
