Photo Shoot with Austen- Part Two: Chic

Austen not only did me a huge favor in general (see my last post for details if you haven't already), but she drove us to five (five!!!!) locations!

Here's where the outfit change and 'classy' shoots happened. We went to the Historical Driskill Hotel and to my favorite museum in central Texas, The Blanton.

Photo Shoot with Austen- Part One: Kitschy

Welcome to my first ever photo shoot! Austen was kind enough to put her photography skills towards doing me a big favor. She's been following me on various social mediums (social medias?) for ages, and in the past has been so sweet and even called me an inspiration for her own body confidence! I don't know if she looks up to me as much now that she knows what I'm actually like after meeting me in person haha. Nevertheless, take a gander at her beautiful work (despite her camera acting up that day), and she helped me with poses etc. and gave me some helpful positive reenforcement.
This post is all thanks to her!

Heidi Braids Tutorial

First off I'd like to apologize for the overexposure! I just wanted to guarantee everyone could see the details of my hair. How do women with black hair do hair tutorials??
Alas, they may not be very pretty pictures but they serve their purpose.

Art Trade with Art Babes

I was lucky enough to set up an art trade with a multitude of lady artists I've gotten to know through Instagram.
This was great practice and an absolute delight to do, plus I got a bunch of free art out of the deal which isn't too shabby. I know as an artist it can be almost impossible to have art done of you, or your subject of choice, since you're the one who's always doing it for others! This gave everyone a chance to feel the love both ways.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (and it's a Really Fabulous Day)

I apologize in advance for the outrageous amount of screen shots, I just couldn't help myself. I actually almost cried over the beauty of this movie (literally- used in it's proper form, not normal white girl exaggeration: literally almost cried)

Bonnie and Clyde Beauty Inspiration

If you've seen the new Bonnie and Clyde film you know the only reason it's worth watching is because Holliday Grainger and Emile Hirsch are total cuties. The whole time I missed the film's faults because Bonnie's makeup was killer.

She has beautiful cheekbones and a little rosebud mouth they accentuated with blush, minimal eye makeup, and the perfect red lip!

Rather than go for the same subtle look I went a little more over the top and went with other 1930s inspirations, this is the reason it's dangerous for me to watch period pieces while getting ready.

June Outfit Roundup

June has been a month of milestones for me, some marvelous and some not so great:

  • I started a new job
  • Received a significant raise and promotion within two weeks of working that job
  • Ended up emotionally abused at that job, and harassed by the owner of the company
  • And I just turned in my two week notice 
  • I also had my 19th birthday
  • Wore a two piece swimsuit out for the first time in my 19 years 
  • And finally got my drivers license (!!!!!!)
  • Last but not least, I started this blog
