what's a good workout to do at home? i've got a photo shoot coming up in a couple months and i seriously need to get in shape. walking instead of driving has been a good change but i had access to a treadmill & elliptical back in MI. right now all i have are these :p


along with Winsor Pilates but i don't even have a mat and it's been so long since i've done the Ballet DVD it'll probably take me forever to relearn and have very little effect. wish i still had theFIRM, those videos kicked my ass back in the day :)

here's a look at new items coming to my store soon!


Sunday, February 26, 2012

no big updates tonight :p just packing up jewelry orders to ship out tomorrow. also working on some new items for the store. pretty much what i'll be doing all week along with sneaking in some time for hair pics ;) and in a couple weeks or so i'll be looking for another job as well. hopefully i can find something cool or fun but really i need something with a flexible schedule so i still have time to work on my jewelry and pursue some more modeling gigs. wish me luck, i've worked from home for years now so it's definitely going to be a huge change.

posted this on my FB not too long ago but thought i'd post it on my blog as well :) this is me modeling for Doctored Locks, the site i get pretty much all my extensions from! was very excited when they asked me to send in pics ^-^ i'll also be doing some guest blogging for them in the near future.


this site is also a great place to find tutorials on installing different types of extensions ;)

so here is the hair progress so far. i'm actually almost all done with the front and should get most of the loose extensions finished today. ended up using all three pinks too ^-^ after that i can pretty much get all the dreads installed in one day so this'll probably be the fastest i've ever finished my hair.

new pics to follow immediately after as i'm anxious to see what they'll look like with the great lighting in this room, also can't wait to take some in front of the blue walls :p

off topic, make sure to check out my jewelry blog for a giveaway i'm having!

B E A T F R E A K

as mentioned on twitter earlier today, i got word from Kalamazoo that one of my very talented friends Short-e painted a picture of me. it's actually apart of her thesis art exhibit and is currently on display in Kalamazoo along side her other great work, but she gave me permission to post it here too :)


it's titled 'Beat Freak' and if you want to check it out visit this link to get all the info on the event. it's up all week and there will be DJs and dancing! also it will be on sale after the exhibit is over.

i also have to mention that Short-e is one of the most inspiring people you will ever meet. she has limited use of her hands so she does almost everything with her mouth. writes, paints,..even DJs :) in fact i'll never forget the first time i met her. i was on the way to my second rave ever, me and my friends were walking around lost, she and her friends were on the sidewalk and could instantly tell we were looking for the party :p they gave us directions and we later saw her there and partied all night. as long as i've been raving she has pretty much been at every party just like me ;) not to mention she's a great DJ too. we ironically were in the same painting class as well when i was in school back in the day.

this is definitely something i wish i could've attended. it really seemed like right when i was leaving Kzoo all these things were popping up that i wished i could partake in (while living there it was not like that at all of course)...i guess that's how it is sometimes. but it really means a lot to have a friend portray me like this and is kind of the perfect sendoff ^-^

Fact: I am badly in need of a show :p can't wait for one of my fave bands to start touring, they are all ironically recording new albums at the moment :)

H A I R W O R K

get ready for a mass of hair blogs :p it's that time again, will be redoing my hair the next couple of weeks. figured i'd take a before pic even though i'm not changing much this time around


i'll be using Raspberry Crush again but switching Bubble Gum for Pixie Pink which is a little bit lighter


like always i'll try and post progress pics on a semi daily basis ;)

tonight we went to Flax, the closest art supply store to our house. mainly they sell all you'll ever need for painting & drawing but also had some of the supplies i use regularly. it's definitely going to be a challenge not having a Hobby Lobby anywhere near to me :p but  i'll be saved by online shopping not mention i want to expand the types of materials i use. hopefully i'll come across lots of new things to incorporate in my work.

here are the rest of my pics from the Sanrio store. i have to say i did a pretty good job in only getting two small things considering all the amazing stuff they have for sale :p i even asked if they were hiring ;) hehe (they weren't). if i had the money i'd definitely get the computer cover and some of the luggage ^-^

sorry for the recent missed blogs :p last night was out of my control as i couldn't get online with my computer OR my phone. hopefully this isn't something that'll happen often. i'll try and make today's official entry a good one to make up for it ;)
