When you do not have a photographer available, take matters into your own hands and take your own photos! Taking these photos brought me back to my first days as a blogger. If you look back to the earlier posts of my blog many of the photographs back then were taken by me and my little tripod in my parents backyard. What initially started as a fun summer hobby slowly developed into a passion.

As you can see nowadays I still play around with my surroundings and use random things as tripods when one isn't readily available. For this shoot I used my car and my little notebook (check out my sunglasses shot). And as you can see the photos turned out ok. Well except for this last one where I'm completely out of focus!
Have you tried taking your own photos before?

Thrifting is often a hit or miss for me (the latter being more accurate). But I must say it is quite the entertaining experience if you're patient and devoted to it. During one of my more successful trips to Goodwill I snagged this beautiful printed buttoned-down shirt. It features this intricate artistic print of reds and browns. The fabric of it is chiffon. And it has these flattering pleats that give it an airy look.

I decided to make this shirt the focal point of the outfit by simply styling around it and pairing it with accessories that purposely complement it. Overall, I think this outfit was a great success thanks to my little goodwill find.

Do you go thrifting as well?

Ask the universe and it shall provide you what you truly need. So DREAM BIG fashionistas!

Its never too late to find out about those who came before you to get you to where you are today. I officially began the search for my roots on my 25th birthday. It is something that has been on my mind since 2009. I've always wondered if there is more to me than what meets the eye and 23andMe truly proved that there is! I've always been keen to traveling, lots of excitement always ensued whenever the days to my next vacation started dwindling down. Now I know that my love for travel and cultures from all over the world probably stems from all the travels my ancestors did in the past.Nevertheless, I'm proud to say that I'm from all over the world!

What is your ethnicity or what do you think it is?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts down below.
