I now declare myself twenty-SEXY! Lol the age 26 is here. I’m officially closer to 30 than 20 and that’s a scary thing! But what I have realized in these 26 years of life is that becoming who you are takes a lifetime and being comfortable in my own skin is still something I work on every day. I find it hard to believe that there is some magical age when I will feel like I’ve got it all together. I never will. Life actually has no finish lines, just many many starts in different arenas and fields with new crowds of loving friends and family to push you along. There will be pain and sometimes lots of it and that’s ok. There will be joy and thankfully much more laughter than hurt. Holding onto the glimmer of each day’s silver lining has pushed me forward to this point despite the many times I felt I failed. I hope this birthday will be the beginning of an uplifting chapter in my life where discovering who I am and who I hope to be are top priorities. I feel like my evolving style in clothing(tomboy chic is here to stay), music(smooth joints only)and makeup(much less is now much more) reflect my coming of age and the discovery that comfort is the lock and discomfort the key. I will continue to push the limits of my comfort and work to see my visions come to life.  And while I may not be where I want to be I am much much further than where I came from and that is less a birthday gift and more a birthday blessing.

This shoot was FREEZING! Do not let my smize fool you, the wind blew so hard I ripped my falsies off after the first few shots LOL. But as usual I had a lot of fun with my photographer Bryce! We found some cool wall art in West Philly near the El and let that be our backdrop. This shoot was especially exciting because I was able to wear one of my custom pieces. The jean jacket I have on is the first piece created for Good Samaritans, a clothing collective started by myself and my insanely creative partner in love and life. Our mutual passion for vintage fashion and custom clothing led us to create our own brand. Good Samaritan Clothing Collective is a lifestyle brand that adds a personal touch to new and vintage clothing. All pieces are specially sourced, hand crafted, and one of a kind. Starting this brand was a major progression for me. It takes all that I am to put my creative efforts out into the world. I think we all get a little afraid to share our ideas with others but the world would be far less cool if we did not!

How have you progressed in life so far? Any projects you’re afraid to start?
