Me, Myself & Adam

And a couple new pictures of Jasmin! :3

Yesterday, I mean to update, actually, but I decided to go out with Adam for a while to take come photos.
This will be one of my last posts, if not my last, before I start spanning out all my NYC posts. I'll be departing in less than 4 days, and I'm so hyped up. I can't think about anything else lately ;u ;. I'll be making a pre-trip post, hopefully a post while I'm there, and, of course, one when I return. Lots of stuff when I return c:. I'll probably put it into two different parts, or three haha.

So anyway, I've been kind of busy on Photoshop, so I might as well get on with sharing c:

ALSO: I tried a new technique to curling my hair, and the more I try, the better I get at it, and the more effective it's becoming. i'll start my post off with photos from that, then my photo-day <3.

So I first tried 8 "rolls" then attempted 6 yesterday, and left them in with my hair a little drier, and a little longer (approx. 6-8 hours). There were significantly better, but a tiny bit frizzier. I'm going to work on growing my hair into the proper shape and morphing it into Bettie's hair. Slowly, but surely, I'll get there ;3.

I also trimmed my bangs jfkldgjdf

Pardon the lack of proper eyebrows lol

Not quite all brushed out.

 Some of the curls were a tad wet when I took them out, so, as you can see some of them are more wavy than bouncy :c. Oh well, they did turn out pretty decent in the photos:

On that topic, some of the photos we got to taking. I'll starts off with the photographs then out bit photos. ;3

Thanks Adam for assistance :3

I have more, I'll just update this posts when I get them finished xo

And now some tid bits :3 again, Click to Enlarge...

Lookin' like an Owl c:

Adam just likes to keep his finger on the shutter haha
Now for some photos in the sake of updating. I did edit some more other ones and I also did some Twiggy style stuff for practise.

Last, but certainly not least, a couple shots of Jasmin.

Okay, so keep a look out for updates, new photos, and my upcoming NYC posts! Have a wonderful day/evening. xo Courtney.

ps: Some art :D I recently finished these for my sketchbooks in third period art. Enjoy xo.

Jasmin / Self Portraits

I had a shoot last weekend, and I'm still in the midst of editing all the ones I'd like out of it, but I'm going to share anyhow. When I get any new ones, I'll update them as extras in my next post. c:

So, anyroad, I had the absolutely wonderful chance to shoot with darling Jasmin, whom I have been trying to shoot with for the past while. She brought along two outfits and we worked with both of them, entirely clearing out my memory card in exception to 35 shots. An average full shoot, but it's been my first full shoot since fall, and my first full shoot with my new 50mm. :333 I'm one exuberant lady :D It's been a great refresher, and it definitely built me back up from my rather depressing rut :c and I also got back into the swing of this with some new self portraits! They're at the bottom after photos form my shoot. Enjoy xo

And for some self portraits:

I recently found a shirt of my mothers (I mean, what fashion blogger in history of ever hasn't found the perfect shirt they picked out from their parent's closet?) which I've had for a while, but never had the jeans to go with it. I decided to try it with my jeans I got last fall, and I died. I've also been highly inspired by k-pop/k-fashion (Korean pop/fashion) as of late. Japanese fashion as well, but the entire style/fashion culture is just awesome. I'd love to be doing some sort of work in that area when I'm a bit older, actually. It'd be just dreamy!
