I’ve got a little bit of everything this month!
Just when I learn to be a good frugal adult because I have bills to pay…I fall into the depths that is consumerism. But if there is any light at the end of the tunnel, its second hand and not BRAND NEW or BRAND NAME. I love thrifting, so when I came across POSHMARK (as mentioned in my shoe haul video) I delved deep in that shit! I haven’t gotten too crazy but 4 shoes later and a favorites list the size of my house…you can say its not safe for me and there is no saving me. But like I said, if there is anything redeeming about it, its second hand! Save yourself!
I have been blessed mby this wonderful woman Nicky to have come into my life. Before Nicky, I put the life of my hair in the hands of inexperienced stylists, and all to save a buck. But it wasn’t until I decided to bit the bullet did I realize that it’s totally worth splurging on yourself if it means you get EXACTLY THE HAIRCUT YOU WANT! Nicky fixed up a botched bob, and then gave me a trim with bangs, and recently dyed my beautiful brunette hair black! And every time I leave her chair, I can’t stop looking at my new doo! She is so nice and funny and just know her stuff when it comes to short hair! I do plan on growing my locks out, so she will be my go-to gal for keeping the black looking it’s best. It also helps that I don’t wash my hair as much anymore, about 1-2 times a week!

So when it comes to being a circus performer, creating a routine is only half the battle. Becoming a character is what I really love. And for my last performance, I needed to transform into a other-worldly Gin (genie) and I channeled an alien because why the hell not. However, most of my makeup is neutrals and dark colors. My alien on the other hand was bright with pink and purple skin…so I needed some help. I would love to splurge on a smashbox palette, but mama got bills to pay! So I opted for Nyx. Now I wouldn’t say it is the best formula, but it definitely got the job done for the price and what I needed. I’m sure if I had all the time in the world and only stuck color on my eye, it would have worked nicer. But like I said, if your short on cash but want some bright color, I’d say give it a try!
Let’s join the Circus!
Yes that’s my bendy back working on getting my contortion in. I absolutely love being a performer and Jypsy’s Performing Arts, have really helped me grow into not just an aerialist, but a performer. I love Nichoel and the way she teaches, but she only works out of The Circus Studio. At Jypsy’s, I have met some of my now closest friends and have been able to really express my creative freedom without worrying if its “family-friendly.” At Jypsy’s its really about empowerment and finding who you are as a woman (or man) and expressing it from deep within rather than just smile and posing for a routine. It’s a very intimate studio but it’s filled with great teachers and fellow circus people that will gladly take you under their tent!

And last but certainly not least… this fucking CAT CASE! this cheeky little fucker really stole my heart! I got this off amazon and was able to get it in 2 days (thanks amazon prime) but I do know it is a dupe for a skate brand (the name escapes me) but I don’t care! Look at it! I never thought I would be one of THOSE people that had an obnoxiously large rubber phone case, but with my new purchase of an iPhone 7 plus, I feel like that thing can slip out of my hand if I breathe. So I got this case both for how it looks but also its just obnoxious enough so I don’t drop it!
Yeah that’s some shit I like right now!
