I know, I know... In case you didn't notice, Dia de los Muertos (Mexican All Saints Day) was yesterday, but as always, I post a little too late on certain events. I promise you that I'll stop. Someday.
Dia de los Muertos isn't really celebrated as much in the U.S. as it is in Mexico and other Latin American countries. I, on one hand, have made it a habit to have "Sugar Skull Photo Shoots" every year for this particular day.
It all started with a photography class I had my sophomore year in college. I presented a collection of photographs with "Calaveras" and my professor kept some of them to present at an art gallery. I was super cheesin' it because it was the first time any of my work had been presented at an official art gallery. After a week or so, when the art exhibition was over, I contacted my professor via email and I even went to look for him at his office, but guess what? Homeboy kept my original prints and I've been without them ever since. I have no idea where he went or where to find him, but that didn't stop me from creating even better pictures than the ones he STOLE from me.
Today is super gloomy day and waking up at five in the mornin' did not help. My boo has been a good sport though. He's been driving me around ever since I sold my car in January last year so that I can have some extra cash for my trip to Brazil. Now I have to wake up extra early so that he can drop me off at school and still make it to work on time. I guess I can now say that I have a personal driver. ;)
I had always wanted purple lipstick, ever since I was a little girl last year. I stumbled upon Revlon's Va Va Violet and it was love at first sight. I finally got to sport this delicious color yesterday with some golden lids ;)
Here are the pics from when I went to visit my folks:
Is it just me, or does it seem like Mother Nature is not letting us -and by us, I mean SoCalifornians- sport our fall gear this season? Homegirl is going through some bipolarism, if that's even a word, which is probably not since it has the little red squiggles underneath it.
She is making a fool out of everyone me!
Once upon a time during a beautiful breezy day in the wonderful city of Amazingness, a young lady decided to sport the following outfit to conduct a quick photo shoot at the beach.
