Tiki Pinup by the Pool

 

This past weekend I did one of my first official shoots of the summer. It was a “Poolside Pinup Shoot,” where I donned my brand new “Tiki Zombie” style bathing suit with my matching hand fan, (Both by one of my favorite all time brands, “SourPuss Clothing,” which I use the tiki monster fan very often to dry my makeup setting spray faster when I’m getting ready for the day.

Sunday was the day of the shoot after a “Father’s Day celebration and I was fortunate enough to have a warm, but not too warm weather to shoot, beautiful lighting, and a perfectly blue pool. To match my tiki pinup pool outfit, I donned my new “Mother of Pearls” heels by “Iron Fist Clothing,” a gorgeous purple sparkly rose clip, and my new “Purple Sunset,” sunglasses. I also changed up a few shots with my cute pinup black and white polka dot “Cat Eye,” sunglasses. Of course I had plenty of sunscreen on for my porcelain skin and my black cover up.

My Morning Skincare Routine

I get compliments on my skin all the time and one of my nicknames is Snow White cause of my fair skin, black hair, and red lips. I recently met a very sweet woman walking near me in the mall and we chatted about our tattoos, how pushy some skin care vendors are and more. This sweet lady complimented me on my skin and look so I decided to share my skin care routine, Here is how I do my skincare in the morning. I decided to do a video on my youtube channel besides writing and posting here because I switch up my morning routine.

   I just bought a fabulous new handbag a few weeks ago. It’s a furry leopard print bowling bag and I’ve been using it constantly. It’s from one of my favorite brands, Sourpuss Clothing and inspired me to blog about it.

   I’ve been a huge lover of Sourpuss for about 7 years when I first saw their booth at a tattoo convention that I was modeling at and during some downtime from the model booth I went to go check out the different vendors.  At one table, in big bold letters was the word Sourpuss. I was instantly drawn  and went over to check out their stuff. I started conversing with the  nice ladies running the booth and started  looking through all their fantastic goodies. I knew I wanted to purchase something but couldn’t decide on what. Finally I found a black and green handbag with a burlesque zombie girl on it and knew I needed to have it. I ended up getting the bag for free from the ladies since I was working at the convention which was awesome, and ever since then, I’ve been in love with Sourpuss and have acquired many different pieces from them, whether it’s a cute dress, a handbag, shorts and more.

   Everything I want and look for in a clothing brand Sourpuss has. They make such unique pieces from the different prints,  their cute accessories, or the cut and style of their clothing that you don’t find everywhere. They also design and create a lot of vintage pinup/rockabilly pieces which they sometimes mix with horror themes which of course is perfect for me.

   Depending on what you get, sometimes the price of something is a little more than other brands but it won’t send you into debt and you definitely get what you pay for. The quality of Sourpuss is excellent. If you buy something from them, you never have to worry about it falling apart unlike cheaper brands and stores. They come out with new stuff all the time and I’ve never not seen something from them that I haven’t liked and have not bought anything from Sourpuss Clothing that I have later regretted.

   Here are some photos of me in just some of my Sourpuss looks including some brand new items I haven’t shown off a lot yet. Hope you enjoy and make sure to look up Sourpuss on their website, http://www.sourpussclothing.com or look up what shops carry their stuff.
