Skin Deep

Short and Sweet, this post is solely dedicated to
those getting real comfortable with themselves, including me. For the  past month I have been observing myself, becoming aware of the space I take up and want to take up. I realize that I care less about a lot of shit that has nothing to do with me. Narcissistic maybe? But the happiness I feel minding my own business is priceless. Here is the thing, words of wisdom from my dad actually!
“The key to life  is to focus on what fuels you, like your life depended on it... a fire will grow within you, that only you could feed-Feed it” -some Powerful shit, but bare with me. 
FOMO is not a real thing guys! And I hate to be the one to break it to ya, but it seems as though we  have been running away from our true self -out of fear to fit in & not feel alone. I have been in rooms filled with people and still felt so alone, not because I felt inferior, but because I was dimming my light to fit in. So now no forcing is allowed in my life. I’m empowered to walk alone. I take me as I come. I refine, reassess, and laugh a whole lot. I know all about me, I’m creative, resilient, and kind but I’m intrigued  to learn more. That kinda work is the only one I’m interested in right now, and boy does it make me feel powerful.

Bodysuit: Zara, Mom Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: Zara
I had the pleasure of kicking it with a fav of mine Anissa(@nisshoots) for these visuals. Niss has a energy I just love. She is very No pressure, but stay applying pressure(ifyouknowyouknow). I think what she gets best are my moods/wardrobe lately.  From the fabric store, work, events and shoots, I’m just in a different space now, where the work to reach my goals matters a little more than my outfit.
 ( ha, that’s growth) 
But no worries Spring is coming and I’ll be serving looks for y’all! 

P.S- while observing myself this month, I realized I don’t verbally talk about myself directly. So I decided I’m going to share  one Major fact about myself each time I post. 

1. I’m an artist. I was drawing, painting, styling, creating looks since I could remember. It has always came natural to me. I used to watch music videos and imagine myself styling the people on set and actually Directing as well lol! Currently I’m learning to sew ( and hopefully I can open a line/store with cool pieces for you guys! So stay tuned) 


  1. Getting to know you better is such a treat!


  2. Beautiful insight. Very soothing to the mind of a man who shares a similar perspective. Bless up

  3. WOW, thanks so much for the comment, life should be easy on the mind!

  4. When your opinion of yourself goes up then you’ll stop trying to get so much validation and attention from other people. The increasing self-esteem and self-love also makes you feel more deserving of good things in life and so you’ll self-sabotage less and go after what you deep down want with more motivation and focus than ever before. It’s all about you babygirl. Love ya, Xio ��
