[Moody walk through downtown Birmingham] I lived in Alabama for about 4 years. There was much to learn about Civil Rights, lots of nature, and bits of history scattered throughout this city. Although I was raised in Virginia, Alabama still holds a place in my heart. Pictured in this photo is the Alabama Theatre, which held its grand opening in 1927.

My love and I have put together a travel page of our trips together. Make sure you follow @coupleofworldcitizens! We’ll be posting lots of photos and videos you won’t see on our main feeds. But about this photo — Remember that beautiful waterfall I posted back in October on the border of North and South Carolina? Well, this is a pit stop we made coming back from the waterfall at this overlook on the highway. We took a moment to get a look at a portion of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Fitz put the drone up for an even better aerial view (We’ll probably post that on the other page). Hope to have you all join us on our new page! 🌎

My love and I have...

Every adventure begins with something we’re searching for. We’re all seeking something, whether it be inner peace, ultimate purpose, new ideas, or expansion of thought. We all need a trigger moment — something that forces change upon us. Whether we take the leap or not is the choice that really matters. Why do you travel?

Who wants to go on an adventure? This photo was taken just after finishing a walk through the muddy jungle. I hosed off the gunk, and you can’t tell by the photo, but I had AT LEAST 50 mosquito bites and cuts all over my legs. That’s what I get for wearing shorts.

Who wants to go on...

Just keep strutting.

Welcoming Autumn

Yet another Summer in New York City has come and gone. For the first time in five years, I have so much to show for what I did with my Summer and am thoroughly ready to take on this new Fall season and whatever comes along with it. I spent my Summer traveling to different countries, trying out new sports, and really being active and outdoors. Now, it's time to move on...

While I don’t ordinarily jump for joy for the cold months, I feel a certain calming energy about Autumn. It isn’t quite the same as the other seasons. It’s not like the blooming Spring or sweltering Summer; it’s a different type of change — out with the old, in with the new. Fall represents the preservation of life. Animals prepare for the winter by storing food and creating hibernation spaces, while we tend to retreat indoors and focus on cultivating a comforting and cozy home. In a way, it offers us a chance to reconnect with ourselves.

Fall represents the preservation of life… It offers us a chance to reconnect with ourselves.

Autumn is also representative of balance. Day and night become the same length of time. The Sun enters the Libra zodiac, which is symbolized with the balance scale. This Libran time grants us the opportunity to harmonize with the Earth and illustrates the beauty of letting go of unneeded baggage. I’m a Libra, so this time is especially important to me for these reasons. I tend to spend my Summers out of the house and looking for outdoor activities to keep me busy most of the days; however, during Fall, I look forward to a cozy home, lots of comfort cooking, finding new interests indoors, and polishing up on skills. It’s a period of self-awareness, protection, and even mystery, because I don’t know what’s coming next with my new found changes.
THE LOOK
Top Pretty Little Thing; Jeans Topshop; Boots Sam Edelman; Watch Luxurman; Hat I Saw It First

 

Let’s get back to the outfit-of-the-day. For me, Fall is all about warm tones. I opted for a camel top to go for more of a nude look to match my skin and the highlights in my hair. I’m wearing two of my favorite items in my closet: Topshop Joni Jeans and the Roll Neck Bodysuit by Pretty Little Thing. These two pieces are instant go-to pieces not only for their simplicity and ease of styling, but most importantly, for the fit. Topshop jeans fit me better than any other denim I’ve tried. Typically, I have a hard time shopping for jeans because of my measurements. My waist is really small, I have wide hips, and I’m petite. As for the bodysuit, it comes in multiple colors and fits snug against my body. My leather, knee-high boots are by Sam Edelman and have a wide heel for comfort and feature a silver metal-capped toe and metal strip along the heel.


Something cool happened this day…

I met the cast of Midnight Texas

Love at first meet? Maybe… just maybe. The cast consists of six main characters, I had the opportunity to meet five them: Parisa Fitz-Henley (Fiji Kavanaugh), François Arnaud (Manfred Bernardo), Arielle Kebbel (Olivia Charity), Jason Lewis (Joe Strong), and Peter Mensah (Lemuel Bridger). Individually, they each had heartwarming personalities, but seeing them together as a cast was even sweeter. They have well-balanced chemistry, which makes their on-camera work even more natural. Pretty cool right?

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

    There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum

      As a finishing touch, Yadim reached for a pot of loose red pigment that he swiped from the Maybelline labs. “It’s very volatile,” he warned, as one speck of cherry-colored powder could result in a smeary lip mess, but he firmly believes that “every woman should be able to overdraw her lip and not feel like she’s wearing tons of drag makeup

    The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

    “When you think of matte lipstick, you don’t usually think young,” said makeup artist Yadim, backstage at Jason Wu. “A red lip can easily go very madame.” Unless, of course, you’re talking about velvety red inspired by Helmut Newton’s portraits of supes like Cindy Crawford and Jerry Hall.

    Next, he strategically overdrew the perimeter, “respecting the integrity” of each girl’s natural shape by filling in the Cupid’s bow to create “hills” rather than “peaks,” and dipping the middle point of the lower lip ever so slightly—keeping the lines extending straight into the outer corners of the mouth instead of “curling them under.”

    Last night at Adam Selman, the clothes took inspiration from a nudist colony in Hawaii, featuring punchy tropical prints, but the nails, designed by manicurist Madeline Poole, are naked in their own way. Bare save for a random blob of deep blue polish (Poole used Complete Salon Manicure in Dark Hue-Mor) on each nail, the look is, “something a girl could do DIY sitting at her desk. Like drawing on your finger with Sharpie,” says Poole who created a makeshift circle stamp by pressing a carpenter’s nail into the end of a pencils eraser, but “you can use anything to make a dot,” Poole says.
