Birthday Suit

Its been a week since my 30th birthday on March 19th. I have to say, after the initial "OMG, I'm officially in my 30's" freak out, I've come to realize: Aaliyah was right, y'all... Age ain't nothing but a number! *unless you were 14 years old like she was when she got married, of course*.

I'm really excited to pursue and achieve new goals coming into this new decade. It's funny how turning 21, I had a perception of where I wanted to be in life by the time I got to this age. And now that I'm *AT* this age, my priorities and goals have definitely changed. I'm starting off my 30th year on a positive note and great energy, and I'm definitely excited for what this new decade has in store!

Had an UH-mazing birthday, by the way. Had a date with my city during the day, and then a date with my boyfriend at night. And then a date with some drag queens at the Starlight Room, after celebrating with my friends during Sunday brunch. What more could I have asked for? Here's to another 30!

March 80's Baby


Pictures taken on location in the Inner Sunset.

It's officially March! We've been well into Pisces season (a.k.a. Fuck the rest of y'all seasons) but March is my birthday month, which lands on the 19th. Turning 30 years old in 19 days makes me both happy and bummed out. I still feel young at heart and in spirit, so exiting my 20's to enter a new box does make me kind of sad.

But on the other hand, my mentality has definitely matured over the years. I'm now at a point in my life where I want so much more for myself that I'm starting to work towards certain goals which I would like to accomplish coming into my 30th year. Funny how the older I get, the more motivated and ambitious I become. Wish I felt this way when I was turning 20... I would've been a millionaire chilling on a yacht with Bey, Jay, and Baby Blue right now or something. Oh well, let's hope that happens when I turn 40!

Snatch Up: He Pressing Me Like Button Downs On A Friday Night

Happy Friday! In celebration of TGIF's for everyone, here are some long sleeve button-downs to take into consideration for your Friday night excursions, whether you have someone pressing you, sweatin' you, or not even texting you. Either way, I think these are fly:

Band of Outsiders

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Givenchy

Thom Browne

Levi's Made and Crafted

Marni

Bottega Veneta

Junya Watanabe

I have to say, I own a bunch of white shirts in different variations, so it's only natural that I'm drawn to the Thom Browne up above. Clean, simple, and classic. Only problem is that I'm a total klutz, and always end up spilling on my shirts. Not the bizzness.

My Walk Meaner Than Cara Delevingne

This is what happens when Cara Delevigne and her brows miss NYFW... You have A$AP Ferg dope-walking at these fashion shows. Check out Ferg's new video shot on his iPhone for "Dope Walk", featuring cameos by Cara, Les Twins (Beyonce's dancers), H.A.I.M., and many more below. Honestly, I'll still take Cara's walk over Ferg's any day!

Mr. Huxtable Sweater Game Crazy

"Champagne"

I love knitwear. Even if it looks like something Dr. Cliff Huxtable would wear on the Cosby Show. Now if only wearing this sweater gave me the type of coinz he had. After spending a couple weeks on the East Coast in the Washington D.C. area, I decided to pull a "When in Rome" moment and purchased a pair of Timberland's to bring over to San Francisco. Cause let's be real. We all know Timbs are a New York thing, and I haven't really worn them since I first moved to the Bay Area over 15 years ago.

In other news, there are so many nooks and crannies of Golden Gate Park I haven't set foot on. Case in point: I had no idea there was an AIDS Memorial (pictured above) until Imelda suggested we check it out.

Pop That

I've been on a neutral phase this winter. Not with just colors, but with my over all wardrobe I guess. Simple is more, at times.  And plus, the weather has been amaze-balls in San Francisco recently (OOPS, sorry bout it,  NYC Juno victims), but wearing any sort of bright pops of colors in the winter just seems odd to me, regardless with the sun out. However, I do love the pop of color in this mural. I love it! The San Francisco Skyline, the pop of color, and all that.

Keith Haring - The Political Line

Hey guys! First off, Happy 2015! Is it to late to be wishing people that? I know we're already 23 days into the new year and all. I don't think I've taken this long to update my blog before! Well, to give you  a quick update of my last post back in November, unfortunately the hunt is still on for me to land a position into a new career field, more specifically into the Merchandising/Buying side of retail. BUT, new year, new opportunities right? I'll keep you guys posted on that.

The other day, I made my way to the de Young Museum with my friend Cana Klebanoff to check out the Keith Haring The Political Line exhibit. There's something about Haring's work that embodies the 1990's, and I remember his colorful work growing up.

Haring's sketch book of Manhattan Penis Drawings for Ken Hicks. So. Much. Cock. His work was very conscious of HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 80's as well, more specifically his Silence = Death work... Which is still relevant today in 2015.

Keith's "Self Portrait". Looking at actual photos of him in the 80's, such cute hipster boy. The exhibit is currently running until February 16th, 2015 - so there's still plenty of time to check it out. Definitely worth a visit!

Hopefully by my next update, I'll be telling you guys about this amazing new job I just landed! Till next time, bye!

BRB

Hey dudes. I know its been a minute since I've posted. I'll be back soon, promise. I'm currently in the process of trying to do a career change, so a lot of my time these last 2 months have been focused on trying to transition into a different field of work... Hence the reason for the lack of updates here, and also on my Instagram/other social media accounts.

I've been in the talks with Imelda over at SunsetShutterBug about shooting new material, and I also have material from the past that I still haven't posted yet... So believe me when I say this hiatus isn't by choice, but kind of mandatory for me.

Hopefully something works out in the near future for myself, but in the mean time all of my time and energy will be focused on the job hunt! So keep your fingers crossed for me, and I'm looking forward to coming back soon! Toodles!
