So…it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’m trying to think of what to write while also completing my NHS application (yes, I am the typical teenage procrastinator).
When I was younger I loved to write. It was one of the few things I thought I was good at and enjoyed. Now the stress from school and the impending doom known as college has turned it into a chore. But writing isn’t the only thing in my life that has become difficult.
Even dressing seems to acquire a lot more effort than it used to. However, it’s important to put effort. It’s important to find things that make life a bit more bearable. Which is why I am attempting to live my life more and not have my world revolve around school. As a start, I am going to do the things I used to love to do: write and dress up. What better way to knock both out of the park than writing a post about style. So here it is.
This month’s Project Sister Act edition: RED.
For those of you who don’t know, Project Sister Act is a fun way to show that style is timeless and that fashion is all about expression.
Here is my interpretation:
This is my very first professional photo shoot.
Usually my mother and I would do it by ourselves, but since in a year I’m going to college my mother will no longer have a photographer. So we thought it’d be a good idea to hire someone.
And it’s easier since we finally have someone who actually knows what they’re doing.
I am wearing my American Eagle jeans with my Blue Age plaid jacket and kickass combat boots. My top, which perfectly coveys my inner thoughts, is actually a dress. (It was hell tucking it in and making it look decent.)
And, of course, I added a little bit of bling with my Alexander McQueen cuff (which I admit originally belonged to my mother).
She’s asking for it back now.
Doing this photoshoot felt incredibly weird initially.
Probably because it was at a decently populated park filled with little monsters running around and elderly couples who couldn’t help but stare. It was hard to bring my A game at first. But my mother’s constant Snapchatting (annoying but lovable) and our photographer’s bubbliness made the whole ordeal a lot more fun.
I must mention that that was the most exercise I had done the entire day.
When our photographer, Sofia, told me to jump, I thought “Oh hell to the no!”
Because, one, there were people walking by, and two, it would take a lot of effort.
The first try sucked.
I was apparently supposed to angle my legs in a specific way which, of course, flew out the window the second I lifted off of the ground.
But I must say, the end product is pretty awesome. I look like someone who could’ve been part of the High School Musical cast.
Word of advise: A photoshoot is never complete without having a Willow Smith moment.
Shout out to Sofia Emm who made me seem a lot cooler than I actually am! 😘

Yes, we look awesome (insert applause).
Well I think that concludes our post today. And, just for a fun fact, I wrote this during my Study Hall while finishing my Physics homework (insert fist pump). I hope to be writing a lot more in the future. Preferably not leaving it to the last minute and resorting to do it during school. But knowing me, that’s probably what’s going to happen. Don’t judge me.
Have an awesome weekend. #FRIYAY
