Here are a couple shots from the night as well as what I was wearing. I couldn’t take any good outfit shots until after so excuse the deteriorating condition of my chunky braidout, lol.
Dress: F21, Shirt (tied around waist): Taxi Taxi, Thigh High Socks: F21, Combat Boots: Payless, Feather Earrings: Gift, Peacock Necklace: Amazon, Rings(Elephant, Triangle Pinky Ring, & Porcupine…not pictured): F21 + Beauty Supply Stores
If you guys want to know the details of Triiin’s outfit, just let me know!

Hello beautiful, Spiiirits.
How are you guys doing today??
I’ve seen better ones myself. It’s a lot of fake people that I’m finding myself having to exterminate out of my life. Its an exhausting process and quite unnerving (especially when “friends” turn to enemies after you put your foot down and demand they stop incessantly using you). Seems leeches and life-force suckers get quite angry when you try to hold them accountable. There’s a good couple of people I can apply that too, right now, sadly. But in such testing times, those who truly care become apparent as well, and I am thankful for those lights in the darkness. This process is all for the growth and betterment of myself and those around me and I appreciate it for the blessing that it is.
Welp, that was just a little insight into my life at the moment. Moving on from that…
Spring is in FULLLLLL swing and with it’s presence has come a couple sassy trends for the fashion savvy.
One of those hot, hot, hot trends is NEON LIPSTICK!
…Pinks, Oranges, Greens, Yellow, Blues…
Check out a couple of celebs rocking the trend.
Triiinity & I gave it a go ourselves and we love it! We will def be rockin’ our neon colors this season.
If you want a review on the colors we are wearing let me know in the comments below!
How do you guys feel about neon lips?? How are you incorporating the trend this season?
I love to hear from you guys, let me know!

I don’t think anyone knows just how much I love the Hunger Games. I love the trilogy so much that, before there was even word of a first movie, my sister and I bought two Hunger Games shirts (mine says “Down with the Capitol” tehe) , a mockingjay pin, and a mockingjay necklace, between us. When the first movie came out, I went (suited in my HG gear and all) to see it immediately. Epic trilogy, man. Awesome societal parallels. & anyone who really knows me, knows of my deep love for dystopian fiction…
That’s why it’s really killing me that I can’t go see Catching Fire tonight. That’s right, Hunger Games Fan #1 is in for the night and stuck NOT watching the much awaited second movie, which made it’s way into theaters on this beloved day. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
However, I am not one to dwell on the bad, so on a more positive note… Did you guys see what Jennifer Lawrence wore to the premiere earlier this week???
Oh yes, little Miss Everdeen was quite the “Girl on Fire” on the red carpet in her Christian Dior 2013 Haute Couture Gown. I think she really rocked this look. It was daring, sexy, and classy all at the same time. And her new blonde pixie cut + red lip combo was the cherry on top! Check it out…talk about dressed to kill.
What do you guys think of Jennifer Lawrence’s premiere look?

Ahhh yesterday…a busy day, filled with summer school, interviews (for upcoming news stories), and errands. But within all of that was a little spot of bliss. I stopped by a park, well me & my bestie…I’m rarely ever alone without her <3…and we were able to get a couple shots out in nature. The sun was high in the sky so we, hopefully, got a nice little chakra charge as well. Hard not to if you stay outside in this Texas weather long enough 🙂 …
p.s. : the jeans I’m wearing were customized by me. Triiinity & I offer customization services via Free Spiiirit, however our customization services are not limited to denim. We sew, create, and transform any piece you can give us! If you are interested in our customization services contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a consultation.

Burgundy, Wine, Blood Red, Oxblood, its all the same and its all trending right NOW.
Burgundy is a huge trend for fall and will continue to be a mainstay for fashionistas all throughout the winter. This is not really the newest of new developments, I’ve been meaning to blog about it for quite some time but I kept getting sidetracked from the topic for some reason (oopsie me!). However, it is still just as relevant. I don’t see burgundy leaving the fashion scene for quite some times, especially during these colder months.
Check out celebs like Kim Kardashian & Nicole Kidman sporting the trend!
Incorporate a little burgundy via lipstick or nail polish, or a lot of it with a cool top or dress. I usually like to wear burgundy lipstick to add a little punch to any outfit. However you choose to rock this rich color, it’ll be hot hot, hot!
What do you guys think of the burgundy trend?
Okay, Confessions of a Fashion Blogger: I’m really doing this post for no fashionable reason at all, but simply because I miss my little sister, Janae’a. She came out to visit me last week and its safe to say that I’m slightly saddened by her current absence :/.
I know that you guys don’t care to hear me whining like a big baby soooo
I will get on to something fashion related….my outfit!
My sister and I were headed out to party with a group of my friends. Before I get into my outfit though, I must explain to you all the massive halo of hair atop my head. I had blown my hair out earlier that day in hopes to straighten it, but for a number of reasons I never got around to it. I had no clue what to do with my hair so I said what the heck, ill just be free and rock my big, crazy hair in all it blowdried glory!
Ok…now the outfit…forreal this time…
Patterned Top: Gift
Camel Wedges: Payless – Gift
Juicy Couture Bag (not in the photos) : Juicycouture.com $169 (i got it on sale!)
I dressed my sister for the night as well and did her makeup! She is wearing…

Black Oxfords: Thrifted-$1.25
Until Next Time!
