Whatcha looking at?

Ever feel like you’re MIA and everywhere at the same time?
Kinda how its been for me these past few days, weeks, months. (:

Maybe I was just going through the motions, but what motions exactly?
I sort of felt like a dog chasing my own tail, and damn I’m dizzy.

A confused mind does nothing – Get clear on what it is you want, and how to get there.

I’ll tell ya  at 27, so far ‘adulting’ is quite interesting to say the least. We were not put here to just pay bills and die, I SWEAR. And for the record, I definitely don’t have it all figured out, and that’s what I think makes it exciting, figuring out what works, and what doesn’t.

I do however have a great big list of what NOT to do 😀 — learned a lot.

*just keep swimming*

We might get wrapped up in what I’m calling ‘screen envy’ .. looking at someone else’s BEST moment and comparing them to your RIGHT now. #guilty
*cut that outttttt* U R AWESOME, right now & always. There I said it. You should too!

 

It took a – disconnect & reconnect + to get my mind & body right again.

My latest 4 months was filled with no job, fat swollen legs, multiple ER visits, and a FUGLY rash -__-  I’ve decided to stop having a quarter life crisis and get a grip; & snap back to reality.

HellO, it’s me.

It wasn’t ALL bad though, I’ve also had a birthday, gotten PT certified, and highly improved my ‘books I’ve read’ list thus far for 2016.

SO TO RECONNECT WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL WORLD WE LIVE IN GUYS :

I Took a trip with my gal-pal PRESLEY and we went to the Barnegat Lighthouse —
Off the screen and into the scene

wwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :insert upside-down smiley emoji:

Had a grand ol’ time, tryna lure in the cutie filled Coast Guard boat to make some friends, and constantly snap photos with our ‘frou frous’ as I called our wispy pieces of hair flying all over the place.

Needed this crisp refresher after the months of suck, and I can actually believe it wasn’t an alcoholic beverage ^^ LOL

Phantom of the Inlet

 

Hello World.

Drones are taking over o.O , and how does that make you feel???????????????? – We once replaced man with machine, and then did it again and again.. idk if I love it or hate it, TBD!

So being that I have all of this free time lately … when I’m not on the daily grind, trying to find/create a job that I love, #thestruggleisreal (HUSTLE HARD) I find myself exploring new hobbies & doing cool *FREE* shit.

A MOTTO : IF IT’S FREE IT’S FOR ME – who doesn’t love free?

Please, enjoy.

Took out a Phantom 3 DRONE the other day and cruised it over the Point Pleasant Boardwalk & Manasquan Inlet.                     ccccchhheccckkkkk iiittttt ouuuuttttttt

I also started using VSCOcam (have no idea what I’m doing) BUT I hear its what all the hipsters use.

Cool filters, I’m a fan!

And here’s the Manasquan Inlet

I’m blue if I was green I would die.. I’m in need of a guy.. da ba de da ba dieeee…
*THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE*

Recap :
After flying this little drone doohickey and capturing some amazing shots and video it REALLY flipped my perspective — WE ARE SO BIG YET SUUUUPER SMALL.

In the scheme of things, life is what we make it. No matter how little or how big of an impact we want to make in this GREAT BIG WORLD, it’s entirely up to us.

We have control. We may not feel like we do at times, and that’s okay. Keep on keeping on. And check in with yourself, how are you feeling? How are your thoughts?
IS THAT GLASS HALF FULL…fill ‘er up!

Seeing shots like this helps me realize a change in perspective can do wonders.

I really enjoyed my first drone dance. More to come!

roleMODEL MAYHEM

Whom do you listen to?
Whom do you look up to?
Who are some of your role-models?

2015… what Instagram accounts can you not live without? 🙂

I’m finding it incredible, with ultimate change & growth, the possibilities that can forever bloom when you harvest life with seeds of optimism and opportunity.

WHAT?  … basically : ‘Garbage in, garbage out’ … meaning, the quality of the output is determined by the quality of the input.

As a society addicted to CNN (constant negative news) we’re slightly bias and sometimes more partial to the ideas of ‘lack’ and loss, instead of being overzealous with love & longevity.

Well………… Flip the switch, it’s a blessed 3rd rock from the sun we live on, so let us spin in abundance.

“What is life?” Life is you.

You are in the driver seat, put the petal to the medal and pack your vehicle with those on the same mission. You are a product of your environment, and the company you keep.


Taking my own advice has me sitting here wishing, writing & manifesting on this fashion, fitness & lifestyle blog, a forever work-in-progress.

TO keep on modeling trend — on a photo shoot over the weekend,  my photographer friend Ashley, gal pal Emily, and myself collaborated together to see what we could accomplish. I’ve been improv shooting with Ashley a few different times half to build her portfolio, and half to get my ideas of a styling business off the ground. 
Team work makes the dream work.

These are just silly shots I took with Snapchat (I’m tellin’ you, great quality point & shoot selfies on that app, good job Evan Spiegel)

When not being able to look at yourself, posing in front of a camera is a bit more challenging than one might think. So as I muster up the heart and belief that I’ve got what it takes (with lots and lots of practice)
Here’s some shots we did get :
