Manifest Content

With the way the world is going right now and (for the most part) all of us are forced to stay home, this free time can be either daunting or pleasurable for people. I think my first reaction was surprise, "oh wow we aren't supposed to go to work?" and then denial, that this was virus was serious enough for people to be waiting in line for the grocery store in masks and gloves 6 feet apart. This has never happened before, it's unlike anything I've ever experienced in my life. I was alive in 1994 when hurricane Andrew struck Miami, but even that wasn't comparable. How do we act? What do we do? Are we suppose to just weather it out like a storm? It's like you're watching a movie, not playing a part, just a standby observing the events passing you by. Then again, when you realize you have no control; we don't know when we will go back to work, or if things will ever be back to "normal", you start to channel your focus on other things, like redecorating your home, working on projects you've started but never finished, devouring books and film (I just signed up for criterion, great collection to binge guilt free on), painting, photography!

Facetiming with friends and coworkers, walking around the block for fresh air and sun, going to the park now and then to sit in the grass, taking long baths with epsom salt, these few activities have become apart of my routine, which definitely helps my mental health, how about you? What kind of activities have you picked up?

What's important to remember is that we are ALL GOING THROUGH IT. And we have all had our freak out, stressed, annoyed moments, so don't beat yourself up about it.

A positive that has occurred is with all this time on my hands, I was able to reconnect with photography allow myself to become experimental. Its nice to have the extra energy to feel motivated to get up, set up a corner and shoot. SO, I've been feeling inspired to dress up with no where to go and take a few self shot portraits..

Here are some of the experiments I've been working on..

The blurry ones are with long exposures, you never know what you're gonna get!

Post Apocalyptic Derelicte SS 2020

After all these years of obsessing over post-apocalyptic world scenarios, whether it be caused by Umbrella-like corporation bio chemical warfare that turns people into zombies, or post WWIII dooms day nuclear war originating from Cyberdyne-like humanity hating destructive robots..

We have finally arrived at what seems like a new frontier. But where are the underground legions in uproar protesting evil capitalism or the trippy hippy communes trying to forge a new way of living off the land and rock n roll and sex on shrooms all day or the utter chaos demons donning chains and leather on motorcycles living off the fumes of diesel and the desert breeze?

Well, so what did we get? Skittish mask donning, glove wearing, sweatpants wearing, couch bound, depressed, long haired citizens of the world hooked to their phones for some glimmering hope of social interaction. I guess I romanticized this situation a little too much.

Here's my attempt at encapsulating some post apocalyptic glam I was hoping to see?

Shop_Tempus Fugit

And another year older, yet perhaps this time around a little wiser!

They say that as you get older you're anxiety fades, because the brain cells responsible for anxiety die off (they're old so they die). So i guess celebrating the fact that your brain deteriorates like a sponge disintegrating and being expelled through your pee ain't so bad after all!

Ive decided to open a wee boutique via eBay with some of my hand selected vintage gems and sell some of these goodies. Please do feel free to have a gander.

I have also teamed up with fine artist Ransom Edgerton @helldforransom to create a jewelry line together called @shop_tempusfugit <3 My vintage gimlets and handmade jewels featured on instagram, take a peep. Everything is for sale, email at

So for my birthday I went to go see Erik Jacobsen, who's super down to earth (and very cute), tatted me up and in under 2 hours and a cupcake later I was in bed early.

A little Pizazz

What with the last moments of cool weather blessing my heat hater soul, it is only appropriate to pay homage to the shivers by wearing a furry gigantic coat, one of many, in my sinful collection of outerwear.

I have decided to go bald and fully adopt the bowl cut life, thus my dreams of mullet goodness must take a back seat for now.

365 Days to the Wind

Hey there 2015, Cheerio 2014.


Over the past year, a few major changes have kept me away from blogging and photography in general. To name a few: Ive started cosmetology school at the Aveda institute to become a hairstylist, discovering a strong passion for cutting, coloring and blowing out all types of tresses, and I have suffered from some emotional turmoil with a loved one that recently passed away. Dealing with loss, and having grown a year older to find out that with age life's wrinkles smooth themselves out and things become frankly, a little bit easier. The simple stupid woes that once stirred my anxieties or chipped away at my confidence and certainty have long since dissipated. Thankfully. Once having thought that the struggle is real, the struggle becomes less intense and the rose tinted glasses begin to slide down onto the bridge of your nose comfortably. Don't get me wrong, the tint of those glasses may turn a bright red, I mean, everyone might have a slip up of some mean temper rising, but it does not remain so.

I also chopped all my hair off. I do like short cuts on others, (dibs to Twiggy and Rosemary's Baby era Mia Farrow) but I gotta say I do miss having the option of a curtain sliding over my eyes at times. However Im very much digging the ginger look for 2015.

Herewith my first post for this year. I look forward to more posts and grumpy pouts (Im not big on posing around in public *shoutout to the strange man who was smirking at me getting my outfit shot, as if I was completely naked or something*).
