I’m officially 21

I kinda look funny in this picture, but it was the only one from my birthday that wasn’t terrible. (It’s also my last instagram post, if you follow me on there. If you don’t, you should!) My birthday was on the first of this month. The day was uneventful but I was able to share a nice dinner with my closest friends. We went and got burgers and I had my first *legal* beer! It was pretty good, I wasn’t able to finish it because I had to drive. :( My boyfriend is a dummy and doesn’t have his license yet (even though he’s freaking 23..)

I’m looking forward for this year because I know this is going to be a good year. It’s going to give me the opportunity I need to finally succeed. I believe it. I absolutely believe it. 2014 Started off okay, but ended on the worst possible note. And 2015 will be my bitch. I’m just tired of living my life in a depressed state. I’m over being depressed. I just want to live my fucking life already.

Anyway, yay, alcohol! <3 :)

I got a Surface Venom

If you didn’t see by the photo to the bottom right, I got what is called either a ‘Scoop’ or a ‘Surface Venom’ piercing. This makes my total piercing count 10. Let me tell you about this piercing: First of all, it’s not two regular tongue piercings. It’s one piercing that goes through my tongue horizontally. It looks like a snake from straight on (which is super cute). It hurt like a bitch. Now, I usually have a high pain tolerance but my piercer did not use clamps and had trouble getting the needle through the other side of my tongue. That is what hurt. She is the only person on earth that I will allow to pierce me. She’s done every single one of my piercings and I refuse to go elsewhere.

Right now, I’ve been having trouble talking due to the fact that my tongue is so swollen from it being stabbed with a needle. I basically have a lisp. I can’t eat much but soup and small bites of things that I can just swallow hole and not chew. When my list of piercings I want is complete then I will save money for my list of tattoos.

A list of my current piercings:

  • Lip
  • Nostril
  • Smiley (x2)
  • Surface Venom
  • Size 5/8″ stretched lobes
  • Industrial
  • Lobe second holes stretched to 10g

Piercings I plan on getting:

  • Septum
  • Daith
  • Tragus
  • Bridge

Best day of my life

So on Sunday, March 23rd, I had the best night of my life. I got to meet and see my favorite band play, Alesana. I drove 75 miles to Sacramento, CA. The photos I have are all from my phone and are all blurry. This is one of the clearest ones.

This show was so emotional for me because I owe them my life, that sounds so cliche, I know, but it’s the god honest truth. If it weren’t for them, I don’t think I would have got through middle/highschool and I most likely would be 6ft under. Dennis held my hand and sang with me during the last verse of ‘To be Scared by an Owl’.

It was really a dream come true to finally see them in person (or even in fucking California again for that matter). I have never been so happy before in my life and I cried when their set was over and the crowd started to scatter. I cried on the entire drive home down I-5. I feel as if I can do anything, they give me so much inspiration and happiness. Not to mention, despite them being my favorite band, they put on a great fucking show.

My favorite body scents

Hi guys! This is a fun post I decided to do, just because. Also if you haven’t noticed, there’s a new layout. It’s also just kinda fun. I’ll most likely go back to my other type layouts in a few weeks but I missed this type of layout. It gives a more personal feel, I think. Anyway, back to the point of the post. My favorite perfumes (that I own).

_DSC0118

Most of them are from Victoria’s Secret. I am very upset because my favorite perfume of all time has been discontinued. It’s the tall red bottle in the back called ‘Love Rocks’. I wish I could explain how it smells, but it is perfection. Imagine what perfection smells like and that’s what it is. I’m also upset because they’ve discontinued the ‘Beauty Rush’ line of fragrances, and those were my favorite before I found Love Rocks. I liked the original ones that were half/half. I am not sure how they did it, but the color part literally floated on top of the clear part in the bottle. Then they changed the formula and made it all clear but tried to trick you by making the sticker on the bottle have the gradient you’re looking for. Still great smelling, though. Just lacking the main aspect of why I originally liked them. However, that’s pointless now because they’re completely discontinued. :(

This isn’t really a review since I’ve had these all for a bit now. I’m actually on my second bottle of the Britney Spears perfume (Small pink circular bottle in the front).

From left to right, row back to front:
Victoria’s Secret Sheer Love, Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in Secret Crush, Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in Appletini, Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in Wild Kiss, Victoria’s Secret Love Rocks, Victoria’s Secret Love Spell Bloom, Paris Hilton, Bath & Body Works Cucumber Melon body spray, Britney Spears Fantasy, and Pleased. :)

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!

Hey guys! Happy October. I really wish this month was longer. Seriously. I love Halloween and all things spooky. Anyway, you’re probably wondering what that has to do with the photo above, and in all honesty, nothing. I just love talking about October.

On October 1st, my closest friends and I went to Oakland and got piercings! The piercing I chose (above) is called a Smiley. I love it so much. I think it suits my face and it makes me feel more like me. It’s like finding myself all over again because I’m slowly becoming this person that I’ve always needed to be. Anyway, less about self becoming and more about how amazing this piercing is. :)

Since you’re going to ask, no, it didn’t hurt. In fact, I barely even felt it go in. It’s that little skin flap that attaches your top lip to your gum that was pierced. Which makes me think it didn’t hurt because it’s such a small layer of skin.

On another note, my big surprise is still in the making. I had a big setback about a week ago, but it’s all sorted out and stuff (even though I still kinda had to start over). ): So, get ready for that.

Can’t wait for Fall

Hey guys! First off, I’d like to thank you all for the wonderful Birthday wishes! <3 :) If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, ayevanity.com turned 3 back in June (which also unfortunately was the last time I posted anything). Also, I have news!

I can’t wait for Fall at the end of this month. I can feel it, the air, the smells, everything. It’s getting to be my favorite time of the year and I just can’t wait. Besides, I am so done with all this Summer bullshit. :P It’s way too hot in California and I can’t really deal well with it.

Anyway, I wanted to update you guys on my life and why I have been kinda MIA. Don’t worry, I haven’t gone anywhere, in fact, I’ve been working on something great, but I’ll get to that later. :) So, on August 1st, the day I officially started my new job as a full time photographer at a portrait studio I was in a car accident. I was literally on my way to work when I was rear ended, the car was totaled and I left with pretty bad injuries (that I am still seeing a doctor for 3 times a week). I am lucky that nothing is broken though.

My big news is still kinda a secret. I will tell you it has to do with something for you! :)

Happy Birthday, ayevanity.com

First of all, I’d really like to apologize for basically being gone for over a month. I’ve been going through an incredibly lazy two months where I’ve done nothing but work and play video games. Seriously, anything that sounds like productivity is out of the question.. My room is a mess and I need to do laundry insanely bad. I promise I am going to get off that nonproductive bandwagon and hop back into routine. I guess what I needed was just a break. Blah.

Anywhooo, I started with a photoshoot today with my best friend, Erin. (Above) I’m really trying to widen my horizons and not do so many head shots. I’m trying to get into maybe some fashion shoots and stuff like that. I just want to fully develop my style if you know what I mean. After processing is the easy part, it’s just the shooting that’s being unreasonably difficult lately. I haven’t been shooting lately either (6+ months) so that could have something to do with it. I’m rusty, that’s it.

If you haven’t noticed, it’s been THREE WHOLE YEARS since ayevanity.com has been up. Happy Birthday to AV.COM! :D It’s been 3 wonderful years with my amazing friends here, and I’m looking forward to the many more to come. Because let’s face it, I’m not going anywhere. I’ve worked too hard and learned too much to let this beautiful site go to waste. <3
