Is it Al or Maybe Just Din... or Aladdin?

The other day, I posted a blog with a flashback to the 90s (Don't remember it? Click here!). As a child in the 90s, I had my love for Disney, and what child didn't? Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Pocahontas... Aladdin. Ah, those were good times.

The awestruck moments of wonder and intrigue you had as an innocent child watching as our beloved heroes and heroines conquer their battles and live happily ever after.  The music... Oh the music. Disney has always done music very well.

"I can show you the world ... dazzling, shimmering splendor..." I bet you know how the rest of that song goes.

If you are new to my blog, you may not know that I have a beauty channel on YouTube where I create various types of beauty videos and transformations. Normally, I try not to do the same thing over and over again, but I have been very keen on creating transformation videos. For Halloween, I created a transformation where I become the genie version of Jafar, which has been a fairly popular video for myself. In one of the comments, I got a request for me to do Aladdin next... and that's what I did recently. I transformed myself into a man...

For your viewing pleasure, here they are together:




I have to say - I do not make a pretty man. Even though this blog is all about the pretty things in life and appreciating them for what they are, I will not hesitate to say how happy I am to be a woman - this look suits me best. ;-)

Let me know what you think of these videos! Is there anything you'd like to see? If so, hop on over to my YouTube channel here and click that little subscribe button for more.

What is your most favorite Disney character? Is it Belle with her beauty and wit, or Ariel with her quirky independence? Perhaps, you like Woody and Buzz, or Jack and Gus from Cinderella. Tell me who it is in the comments below.

Happily ever after,

Blossoms & Light : A Pastel Photoshoot

How glorious are the delicate blossoms that sprout in the springtime? It is my most favorite thing about the arrival of springtime - the little pops of pink and white littering residential roads with tiny pastel petals after a gusty wind flow. 
A few weeks ago, inspiration sprung up at me while admiring the poppy pink trees on a drive through a windy country road. I was on my way to visit my sister with my DSLR camera in tow. Our plan was for me to practice portrait shots using my new 50 mm 1.8 f/s lens with her as my subject, and since I was still an hour and a half away, I called Stephie and asked if she knew of any blossoming cherry trees nearby for a chance of scenery. She didn't.
When I arrived, we drove around with our sights set upon finding the perfect setting. We found it serendipitously - in an almost-empty field at the local community college. It was perfect! A single tree with downy white petals bubbling around its dark branches, surrounded by emerald green grass and …

Creating Pockets of Adventures

Blessed. This is the perfect word to describe my life. While not everything goes in the direction I hope, nor does it ever happen in the ways I plan, it's mine and I have joy. More often than not, I face obstacles and sometimes rather painful experiences that I find to be overwhelming at times. All the same, I conquer. I have faith in a few things: a higher power, that higher power within me, and in myself. Faith always carries me through and has brought me to where I am.
I think my life to be somewhat average in many ways. I am not poor, but I am not wealthy. I can usually obtain the things I want if I plan for them and budget in most instances. However, I wasn't always affluent enough to afford small luxuries, such as my beloved Starbucks habit or my car. These two things would have exceeded my budget by far if I were 23-years-old again.  
Though, one thing that I am wealthy with is ambition. I've always been wealthy with ambition. If I want something, I find a way to m…

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…
