The other day, someone I've previously modeled for told me what a mistake they thought it was for me to cut my long hair. Though I loved having long hair for the first time in my life, it represented all of that time it took to grow. Originally I thought I wasn't the type to have an emotional attachment to my hair, but cutting it made me realize that maybe it was causing me to hold onto all the negative energy I had been experiencing the past couple of years. Immediately afterwards, I felt a sense of relief and empowerment. A literal weight was lifted off of my shoulders and for whatever reason, it helped me let go of some memories I used to associate with my sense of self. So yes, I think my long black hair was great. I also happen to think my short awkwardly colored middle stage hair is great. AND I do not care if you happen to think I somehow ruined my "look", because at the end of the day it's all irrelevant anyway. Do you, find what makes you feel free and run with it. And if you feel the urge to express your unprovoked opinion about an others appearance, resist it and don't be an ignorant ass 😘 #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #beadreamer 📸 @lookitspencer

I pretty much wear stripes ( or black) everyday. That’s my dress code. And in this heat, I usually wear a dress. This winter season isn’t nearly as cold as it was two years ago. I really wish it would cool off more as I’d like to don my new coat. Oh well! #chiangmailife

Heading to a warmer climate? Pick yourself up a few pairs of the lovely off the shoulder tops from @vixen_by_micheline_pitt which go well with basically everything. I like to wear them with a paper bag style skirt I got from Asos or tuck them into high-waisted jeans. #travelootd #vixenbymichelinepitt #vixenstyle

I was so excited to try out the workout and undergarment apparel @knixwear sent! This bra is marketed for medium impact- and I agree! I did higher impact and the bra stood up okay. SWIPE to see my pros and cons for this Knix Longevity sports bra! #knixwear #workoutapparel

Снег в Москве, такая же большая редкость, как я в шапке, во-первых, и пуховике, дважды. Шапку сняла сразу после фото😌. Сибирская привычка-не ношу шапки с детства. Зато их всегда покупаю. С оговоркой: - “Ну, эту уж я тоооочно буду носить!». Нет, не буду, максимум в сумке или руке, в машине на заднем сиденье ☺️😘 На заднем плане рябина, которая растёт прям под моими окнами и радует меня круглый год. Так что почти дома сфотографировалась ✌️.

The puppy is letting me sleep in some. SOME. We had small snow flurries this morning, which is a big deal down in these here neck of the woods 😂 I love how fresh it smells when there’s snow in the air. Happy Saturday!!! Make the most of it, enjoy this day! 💗
