  Doesn't it look amazing?! I am not a great photographer, but this upcoming semester I will take a photography class and I am quite stocked. I made this on my iPhone with the app Phoster. It's quite a cool app. I think I might do a review for all of the apps I use for iPhonagraphy. Well, that's something to think about. Well, I'm off to the A's game. Ganna have some fun and get some new content! Cheers.

NPCD Youth Camp

  Well, what a busy weekend I've had. I went off to Youth Camp on Friday and got home today in the afternoon. The place was so pretty and the weather was cooperating. I didn't take as many pictures as I would have but I was participating for once and I don't regret it at all. I had so much fun hanging out with friends, listening to the word of God and being in such a beautiful place. The nights were spent talking and laughing and even though all of the girls are tired, we don't regret one minute of it. Well, that's all for now. Don't forget to say hello!

second shot

  This is my second shot at typography and I must say I quite like it. This picture, along with the last post was taken by me. I used the app Over for the text and Fotor both on my phone and laptop.  The lyrics are from Fireflight's song "This is for Those Who Wait" such an inspirational song. I suggest you listen to it. It gets you pumped up and ready for everything that lies ahead. Well, I'm off to work.
  I have just one thing to say. If you fight hard enough for it and wait without loosing faith, it will come to you. One way or another. Stay strong!

  I've been dabbling a bit with Typography and I like it. I have a lot of pictures that would look so nice with something written on top of them and that's what I'm doing.  I am using my iPhone to do all of my editing on the pictures and the likes and I'm posting them on my Instagram. This quote is from a Hillsong United song that I just love. Well, that's all for today. I'm going to get a pedicure and unwind with my sister today. Have a good day!

black summer

  Black is the new black. Well, it's not, but black has always been one of my favorite colors. It's so classy and it makes everything pop.

I was feeling like I needed a little pick me up this Friday and so I brought out my lovely blue shoes, curled my hair and decided upon my LBD.

I bought this dress a while ago, but it's still such a great piece to have. I love the lace and the detail on the shoulders. To keep it simple I paired it with my Rock&Republic Royal Blue heels and my Coach wristlet. My hair was in a low ponytail to give off a cool and nonchalant vibe.

 I felt cool and not to mention oh, so feminine. I was complimented and I felt so confident in my heels that it didn't matter that I'd only wore them once before and that they were slowly killing my poor overworked feet.

Anyways, that's all I have for today. Have a beautiful day (or evening)!

from Six Flags to Great America

 see more on my instagram: @instantdork
  Well, these past two days were great. Hanging out with friends and laughing and feeling like you're going to fall to your death is the way to spend the summer. On Tuesday I went out to Six Flags to celebrate my friend's birthday. (That's where I took the first picture of BabyA and my sister) Yesterday I went to Great American and rode all the rides, some more than once. They were that awesome! My sister and I came home tired and full. Both times. The bad thing of it all was that I am so tired today that I spent the day sleeping and feeling like my stomach was going to give out at any moment. 
Still, I wouldn't have traded my two days of fun for anything. Friends + laughter = an amazing time. 
PS: has anyone gone out to the theme parks this summer?

That #RaphLaurenLoving Chick

I should have a "Free Hugs" sign, right?!  >.<
  Well, I have an outfit post after quite some time. That means my sister is back in town! (Well, she's been back for a week, but I haven't been out of my uniform much)
  If you've been reading lately, you will find out that I made a wish list on Polyvore. From 0 to 10 and there are a few items that aren't quite achievable but some, like Number 1 is; hence the title of this post.

  I am in love with Ralph Lauren once again and I went on and bough cardigans, a pullover and a blazer. (You can see them here.)

  I want to wear the blazer so bad, but I still have to see what bottoms to pair it with. Some inspiration is necessary for that! But over all, this outfit is very comfortable. The cardigan hugs my wrists perfectly, the shirt gives me a pop but not too much. The skirt is easy to move in and the shoes are just classic. The emblem on the cardigan is also a huge factor in why I love it, but I'll get to that some other time. Right now, I have to sleep. So goodnight and have a great Sunday!

this is geting somewhere... #Wishlist

  Wish list item 1 is crossed off my list!  If you haven't seen my wish list, then you need to see it in order to know what I wised for this year. Well, half a year, right? Anyways, you can see it here. All the items, beside my RL purse, were bought from I got (from left to right) a dress, a pull over, a cardigan, a boyfriend cardigan and a blazer. I just am in love with the crests and emblems. And they're all blue. My favorite color. Now I need to work on #0 and get #4. Can't wait!

take one step at a time

  I went for a jog today with my sister and saw one of my good friends walking home from work. We chatted a bit and then we departed. That's the highlight of my day. I didn't do much today and I had my day off. Utter fail. Anyway, I just want to say be happy, stay strong and be positive. God bless everyone. I'm out for the night.

inspiration is an unlimited power

pictures on my instagram: @instantdork

  This week has been quite... hectic. From working the weekend to going to Santa Rosa to coming back straight to work. The days over there were hot and not that windy. But Oakland has a whole different climate right now. The day was cold and windy although the sun was out and my cough has been acting up. So I'm calling in and taking the day to recuperate and gather my immune system or whatever is left of it.

Since I'm sick and not feeling well I decided to post some cute pictures I took two days ago. I hope everyone is healthy and happy. Have a very good night!

it's not even that serious Charlie Brown!



  Today my the second day off and I enjoyed it by eating and hanging out with Charlie Brown. I also took a few photos of my sister and cousin. We walked to the mall and stopped on the train tracks and had an impromptu photo shoot. It was hot and light and fun. So very summer-ish. Well, Go to my Facebok page and see more! Ta-ta for now.


PS: Don't they look beautiful?

an afternoon at Scandia

  I'm finally enjoying my summer.  I'm spending my three days off with my family and today I spent it with my friends. We went to a local theme park and played mini-golf and go carts and even went into some water rides. It was fun and I got soaked. All in all, I had a good day... And the good news? There's still tomorrow! So I'm going to steal my cousin's bed and call this a day. Good night!

it's all possible with a little faith

  I had the privilege to attend my youth leader and friend's Bible College graduation yesterday and I must say that it was very lovely. The ceremony was beautiful and lively and so very inspiring. After, I was designated the photographer for the evening (so humbling, I must say) and since I did such a good job at the Father's Day event they decided that I should be the one to take the pictures for this even as well.

  These aren't all the pictures, but I have a few more in my Facebook, so if you swing by over there, you can see more of them. I also had a mini photoshoot with the baby in the last picture, I'll post more of them tomorrow. For now, I have to work and live the real life. Have a beautiful day!
