my life in photographs

These are pretty much my life, but don't be fooled, it ain't perfect. Thought I would share some shots though that would give you insight into my life and what's around me. 

All Ikea

Intently watching a horror movie while taking photos of myself. I'm pathetic.

I'm wearing NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa 

(yes, Samara is the background on my phone <3) 

I love the movies.

another vain photoshoot

Yet another vain photoshoot as I like to call them. They are for no other purpose other than I want my photo taken. Is that so much to ask? At least I don't try to deny that I love to pretend to model, and that I am a very vain person. But I'm okay with that. I decided this time to make a few black and white because there is something so beautiful and raw about the black and white photograph. The others simply needed the color to make them graphic, and to make them pop.

new in: the leopard flat

I really am in love with these! They actually don't look so great on the website but when I got them, they were everything I was hoping they would be. Sometimes I actually prefer cheaper flats because the shoe is more flimsy causing fewer blisters. Sure, they don't last as long, but you definitely get your money's worth most times, and then some. These fit true to size and are pretty comfy. I was searching for a pair of statement flats (because I rarely wear heels) to wear with white tee shirts and jeans or denim shorts, and these are perfect! Today is my first day wearing them out of the house so let's cross our fingers for no blisters!
You can buy them here:

something new!

Amazing how hair and makeup can change a person entirely. I actually quite like this look and would wear it out. Maybe I just need the right confidence to pull off a bold lip.
