Looking Back...

Free People Catalogue- Sept. 2014
This year has been nothing short of amazing even with its setbacks and missteps. I challenged myself and left my comfort zone and made decisions that showed me who I am and what I am really capable of. The best thing I have learned so far is that you should never, ever apologize for wanting more for yourself or better. I am surrounded by people who push me and challenge me every single day (sometimes it's a blessing and other times I want to harm them, lol) and I wouldn't trade them for the world. The question to ask yourself as this year comes to an end soon is: Are you surrounded by people who see you potential? and if not: How do I get those people around me? There's a saying I always heard growing up that says: Iron Sharpens Iron.  Always make sure you are sharpening and uplifting your friends and they're doing the same for you.

This is 30.

Sunday, (November 2nd) I turned 30 years old. This is the one birthday that I have been counting down to. To me, its a decade that I get to enjoy the time of being comfortable in my skin; my 20's was all about finding myself and now that I know who I am I get to enjoy it and make no excuses for it. To celebrate turning 30, my sister and I climbed up on our roof for a little photo shoot. My sister is becoming so talented and owning her craft; I'm so proud of her. My hair is now in Marley Twists (again) and hopefully it will be all Winter.

The Face: Rocky Barnes

The Face: Rachel "Rocky Barnes" Horowitz
Ethnicity: American (Southern California native)
Height: 5'7" 
Bust: 32 
Waist: 24 
Hips: 35 
Eyes: Brown 
Hair: Brown 
Blog 

Why I Love Her: Rachel makes the everyday bikini body ready look easy. You can see she's a SoCal girl (laid-back, suntanned and free) and you can do nothing but sit back and enjoy the pictures of her easy style that she posts via instagram and her blog. She's not just a model, but a social media machine; with collaborations with brands as well as landing pretty legit modeling work separating her from the rest. Her work includes: Skechers, Miami Swim Week, Swimwear brand Indah, Soleil Blue, Van De Vort and a collaboration with Nena & Co., just to name a few. If blogger/model/social media powerhouses are anything to be reckoned with: watch out as this girl takes over.

On My Radar: Studded Vegan Leather Jacket

I love Fall because of two words: jacket weather! Crisp air and layers are just two of the many reasons why Fall is so awesome. I also love a good jacket, and since Free People has mastered the art of making great vegan leather jackets, I know exactly where to go to get something worth my money. My currently fixation is their Studded Vegan Leather Jacket which I have been drooling over for the past month and a half. The best part of the jacket (besides the cut/fit) is the studded sleeves. It gives off the rocker- bada$$ vibe. Upcoming birthday present? Maybe...

Currently Listening To: Mikko Ekko

Disappear- Demo Version (2013) iTunes, Amazon 

"Every time I close my eyes, I feel like I want Autumn back. Oh, every time I close my eyes, I want to fall back into you."

Autumn is my favorite season. It's the most gorgeous in my opinion. Leafs turn, moods still and there is a peace about what is going on around us: change is happening. It's beautiful. It reminds me that I am slowly changing, becoming, growing while being who I'm meant to be.

Focus...

With a new season beginning, its good to do a mental check every now and then. It's always easy to be in a situation and not see any good or focus on it. In our modern day society being negative is more common than being positive. So, as Fall quickly approaches and the complaints pour in about everything; I challenge you to think more positive and speak positively. You'll be surprised at the difference it makes mentally, emotionally and physically.

Currently Listening To: Taylor Swift

Shake it Off- 1989 (2014)

I am not one to usually listen to Taylor Swift, but this song is catchy and cute. It makes you want to stop what you're doing and dance the night away.
It's the perfect song to play out  the end of Summer.
