ice inspo: body edition

I've been so in love with body jewelry lately. This is all i plan to wear this summer. Arm cuffs, toe rings, and body chains are the perfect way to accessorize a simple outfit to give it a royal look.
Also, get creative with it! People usually wear gold for body jewelry, but silver, pearls, and african beaded jewelry can look great for the summer. This trend can make for some amusing DIY projects!

PS: Although I do like the looks these accessories give an outfit, I would never condone the wearing of bindis by people who do not belong to the Hindu religion. There's a thin line between using ideas from another society and showing disrespect towards a large group of people. it's important that people know the roots of where their look comes from before they put it on and declare it a fashion statement!

graduated ting

i graduated last weekend. it was cool. the parties were good, my outfits were better.

i'm excited about life after graduation. becoming my own person while making my parents proud is vital to my success. i can't wait to evolve into who i know i'm supposed to be, make money, and help people all at the same damn time. 


a month ago, i hopped on a plane and made a decision. details are complicated... to make stories simple, i had to choose between the stress of my beloved ones and my own. my conclusion is... life sucks no matter what i decide. however, it's important that i hurt the least amount of people possible when i go through things like this. i'm the only one hurting right now, so to me, I did the right thing. anyways, peep my cute lil outfit.
