Carmen

Well look who it is!  Yes I know I know, I've been MIA from the blogging-sphere for almost 3 weeks!  Eek!  Honestly, I needed a break.  I decided to take a brief internet hiatus simply because I felt like I was getting so wrapped up in it! Hey, it happens.

I haven't gone out in a good month, and have been regularly going to bed early/getting a good night's rest... Sometimes it's good to switch up from your normal day to day routine... My case seems to be the opposite of most, whereas instead of doing something sporadic or noteworthy, I just become a bigger homebody than I already was/get more sleep.  Basically I've become an old woman lol.

Another big factor in my hiatus is the fact that my best friend/photographer of this blog, Sasha, is moving to Europe.  Berlin, Germany to be exact.  She's been traveling the whole month throughout the states, so she hasn't been around, and she leaves for good at the end of the month for a whole year!  I'm pretty sad about it :(
I'll eventually get over it lol (I know I'm dramatic).  She's living her dream, and I'm so excited for her because she's so talented, and I plan to visit her while she's there!!
Wearing a H&M dress, H&M necklace, Sally Hansen polish in "Lightening," and Michael Kors wedges
My lovely mother, who happens to be an amazing photographer, has taken over the photography for my blog.  I'm so grateful for her!  Thanks Mom! lol

I was inspired by Dorothy Dandridge, more specifically by her role as "Carmen" in the1954 film Carmen Jones for this post.  I see pics of Dorothy Dandridge all over my dashboard via tumblr.  She was such a classy lady!

Also, I posted a new youtube video sharing some of my favorite products I've been using this whole summer!  Check it out below! :)

  1. You look ravishing! Welcome back! Sometimes taking a moment to step back, reflect is needed. We as people should do that more often only because we need to keep our core on point. Without having a centered core, we can become zombie-like with island fever- not knowing one day from the next. So I'm happy you have relaxed and come back into your own :)

  11. "...I just become a bigger homebody than I already was..." I know the feeling (minus, getting the extra sleep), but recently started getting out of the house to "do stuff".
    Gorgeous photos! You look pretty.

  12. I love this nail polish.. such a pretty pop of color to lighten the outfit! I'm always too lazy to maintain my own finger nails so I just admire everyone else's seemingly perfectly manicured ones.
