words of thanks

It's Thanksgiving tomorrow, but I will be spending it with my family and not blogging... so I thought I'd be cliche and say a few words here. For those who know me, I'm a very lovable person. Like, quite literally, I show people affection constantly. I wear my heart on my sleeve with my family. There have been many ups and downs and arguments and nasty glares, but they're my family. I'm very thankful for them. My best friends, my new friends, and those who inspire me without even knowing. I'm thankful for my little sister and I am very thankful to God who if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have any of that. Thank you to everyone and don't forget to be thankful every day before and after today as well. Be blessed and happy.

tis the season for ... scarfs and layers and all things starbucks

  I'm pumped up. Why do you ask? Well, I work in a school. It' also going to be Thanksgiving in a few days. Did you add that up? I'm on Thanksgiving VACATION! It's not as luxurious as it sounds. I'm lounging around, drinking copious amounts of coffee and indulging in way too many carbs, but I'm okay. Come next Monday I'm back to work. One thing I absolutely love about November is that people start layering up, the cold nights are beautiful and coffee is appropriate any time of the day. Not to mention the sales!! I was looking at my Pintrest "inspiration" board and noticed I have lots of looks that are coats with scarfs so I thought I'd post some of my favorites. Enjoy!

FHS Class of 2015

  Seniors of class of 2015 know how to show spirit!  These seniors knew how to represent their school and have some fun. The rally was full of whooping whenever "class of 2015" was said or the word "Seniors" was said. The best part? Our homecoming football game was so packed and FHS won the game. We -- as in FHS -- are now second place in the Oakland Athletic League. So I'm really hoping the Tigers win! Go, go, Green and Gold!

Senior Portraits : Jenny

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.  --  Alan Watts
Lately I've been pretty busy with my camera. And it feels awesome. As I had said before, I was kind of putting my photography in the back burner and this week it's been the opposite. Anyways, this here is my cousin. She's a senior in high school and asked me to do her senior portraits. She's in her dance program, in volleyball, her Gateway club and a college program. A 3.0+ student and striving to be better every day.  I'm very proud of her and I wanted to share one of Elsie Allen's High School's students.Go Lobos!

#instantdorkoriginal : FHS Football Team

  Go Tigers!  I don't Know if you know this, but I work in my old High School. Yes, I am an OUSD employee and very happy as well. My position is in the PE Dept. and it's quite awesome. I'm a TA (teacher's assistant; just fyi) slash Locker Room Attendant. In essence, I keep the locker room safe and help the girls with whatever they may need. One thing I love about my job is that I get to see the kids practice. Many of these kids are their own inspirations and strengths and it's just amazing to see how much they practice to achieve something, anything. I was planning on just saying that I was an alumni, I took pictures of these kids and they were posing for me and the camera. But these kids deserve some credit. So, GO TIGERS!

#PoshFest2014 : Day 1

  Today's conferences were pretty amazing at PoshFest.  I met a few new people and saw a few more that I already knew online. One thing that I loved was the smiles and the encouragement. If im being honest here, I will admit that I don't talk to many Poshers as I would like to, but it's because I myself don't make time. +Poshmark is such a great community. I will take more time to talk to these inspiring ladies and get to know that outside of their usernames. Another thing I loved was that everyone was looking super cute. I myself wore my black forever crop top, my H&M sequin skirt and my new Ninne West blue heels. The look had a little bit of pop and some casualness with the top. I love pairing casual items with more fancy and structured items. 

  But on to the actual panels; I learned a lot!  Too much to put in just one post. So I'm going to oust some more this week. When I get some down time because this is going to be a busy week. For now, go check out the posts on my Instagram. Good night my lovelies!

Senior Portraits : Loata

  Working in a high school can be hard work. It can also be an amazing experience when you get to know the kids as individuals. Athletes, scholars, hipsters, brainiacs, gangsters, troubled kids and lovable kids. I've met them all and I can say I can appreciate each kid and they will help shape me is one way or another. Loata is a high school senior where I work. A 4.0+ student, volleyball and softball player. She's determined to make something of herself, so I thought I'd feature her in my blog. Photography is my getaway, I can only hope I brightened her day as a result.
