Everyone Loves Madonna! :D


I love music so much, and since I have Madonna and the Chili Peppers on constant repeat, my inspiration today was them. :)

I was listening to "Borderline!"


John Frusciante

A shot from today.

My First You Yube Video!

I am so excited! I finally posted my first YouTube video!  I know that I my work needs alot of improvement, but one of the first steps of building confidence is letting others see your work. :) So, I wanted to post what I've done so far just to get out there.  I hope you like it. :) Like I said, I'm new to all of this, so I'm still having some issues with the music, so I do apologize if there is no sound.  Please feel free to leave comments. I'm  always open for advice and constructive criticism.

Have Fun

So, you know those days where either the night before or the morning you had no energy, and you felt you were losing passion for your passion...only because it didn't seem like it was ever going to just happen?   I have those days everyday, and I just wanted to share with you today how I fight my way back. 

My way of getting my passion and creativity back is just to simply have fun when your doing your art.  HAVE FUN!  Try not to take it TOO serious... meaning, just don't get too stressed out, and have fun while your doing what you love, and do things that motivate you. 


My dream is to be an artist in the entertainment industry.  I want to work in the film industry, fashion industry...I want to do it all!  My favorite 3 directors that I dream to work with one day are Peter Jackson, Judd Apatow, and my all time favorite, Gus Van Sant.  I want to work doing hair and makeup on fashion shows, and music videos. I want to do it all.

But, of course, I always find myself stressing that they haven't happened yet, and so I get sad, and start questioning myself, and start slacking because nothing seems to be happening.  And, I don't have all of the tools that a professional artist does, and when I came back to Texas I ended up ditching my curling iron and hair straightener due to luggage weight restrictions.  So, it sucks, but they say when there's a will there's a way right? I think it'll be fun to see what these will do. These are my tools:




But after a few days of feeling "blah" about they things I didn't have, I just pushed myself to ignore those thoughts today, and had fun just playing with my makeup.  I turned on a bunch of my favorite tunes that always cheer me up; the Chili Peppers, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson (yes, I like Jessica and Brit! LOL, they're music makes you dance, and I love it!) and here's me singing Madonna's  "Express Yourself" while midway through makeup.  I honestly think I look more in pain.. lol.  But, I was having fun, and that's all that matters. :)



One main reason I began blogging is to motivate myself.  My thought was "If it's public, then I have to do it."  It's helped out tremendously. I've learned a little more about my craft, and am getting more excited about it. My goal for this blog too, is to be more confident in myself, and hopefully inspire others as well. 

So remember, to have fun, be happy, and when you start questioning your dreams, TURN THE MUSIC UP LOUD and flush out the negative!!!!

You're a Firework





Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's still a chance for you
Cause there's a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road

Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em goin "Oh, oh, oh!"

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
