Bright colors among the backdrop of the start of spring calls to mind rebirth, happiness, and celebration. At this point in my life, I'm stronger than ever in how I celebrate myself. I still have some ways to go, as self love is a process, but as my year of being twenty-one comes to a close (as well as my last year of college) I have learned and grown in what it means to celebrate myself: accepting my internalized flaws, not allowing others to define what "beautiful" is, appreciating the knowledge I've gained while working within my FilAm community, and being proud of the growth I've gained in self-confidence due to this self love (and a fun intro to drama class ^_^).

I celebrate you all for being your beautiful selves. Don't let other people tell you otherwise. Let the person you see in the mirror love you back, it's a liberating feeling.

Sure it's fun and all to creatively produce something independently, but when you can share that passion with others, something unexpected and even greater results. I was graced with the photography talent of one of my beautiful friends (inside and out), E.P., and the creative direction of Miguel, my constant fashion fiend. 

It's been months since my last post, I apologize! Doing as much as I can during my last year ever in school, and when I am free, I am way too exhausted to tackle personal passion projects, such as this blog. But I'm back, and recently had another fun photoshoot with Miguel so stay tuned for that (hopefully it won't be another 5 months for my next blog post)!

Read on to see what this creative collaboration with two of my most passionate and beautiful friends created together!
