PORTRAIT LOVING!

Hello Everyone!
So sorry about the lack of posts.
Life has a way of making us forget all about blogging something,aye? Yup!
Back now! Not going anywhere again!
Oh well, it's no news that i love portraits. i basically stalk terry richardson's tumblr (www.terrysdiary.tumblr.com ) because he takes amazing portrait pictures of his clients and friends. If i were a photographer, i would be dedicated towards taking portrait pictures.
However, i spent time recently taking portrait pictures of myself while waiting for my friend to come pick me up. Thought i'd share as usual. :)




 My attempt at doing the "duck face" pose.






In other buzzworthy news, just as i was about to give up on being on the #TeamNatural bandwagon and get my hair relaxed or straightened(LONG STORY!)... i discovered the efficient use of castor oil. it makes my hair so soft and promotes hair growth. LOOOOVVEEE EETTT!!
