Raw Moments 2

Raw moments part two! I know, I know, it's about time. I've had so much stuff going on and I just couldn't find time to upload them.
 
But anyway, I kind of went crazy in a few of these pictures (the one above and below). I'm not putting them as behind the scenes though because they were all just in the moment. This was such a fun photo shoot, besides the fact my sister kept telling me to look directly into the sun. My eyes were killing me.

Raw Moments 1

 
My sister had to take face shots for her photography class  and she chose me to be one of her models! She took them of me in two outfits, so I'll post the others in a day or so. NOTHING has been done to these photos, they are the raw thing. No lighting changes, blemish removal, under-eye bags cover up, nothing.
On another hand, I'm interning at the absolutely fabulous organization I helped out with in September! GLAM4GOOD, remember them? Well, I think I have most of my finances in order, but it's in NYC so I haven't felt 100% sure about it because I know how expensive it is up there. So, if you would like to help me out, or know someone who would like to, CLICK HERE to make a donation! Anything, even $5 would be a blessing!

Give it up: Bloopers

 
 Sometimes the lighting hates me. Sometimes the wind hates me. Sometimes everything hates me. But heck, it makes for some super funny pics.

Give It Up

So I gave up soda for lent and I think I'm dying. Literally, I feel my body wasting away. Well, kind of. I have more energy, my skin is better and I feel like exercising more, but I have these headaches that are killer! Anyway, one of the reasons I gave up soda for lent is that it's my first step in leading a healthier life!
I know what you're thinking because a lot of people have already approached me about it... "Shelby, you're skinny, you don't need to watch what you eat. Go eat a cheeseburger and be happy you're tiny." I can't stress this enough, Skinny and Healthy are not the same thing. Yes, I'm small, but I can't walk up a flight of stairs without heaving in exhaustion at the top, I was drinking nearly two 2-liter sodas a day and my best friend was called McDonalds. Everyone needs to live a healthy life no matter their current size and that's what I'm trying to do.

Oh My Lawrence


This girl. For real, this girl right here. I'm pretty sure she is the ultimate role model for any and every girl in the whole world. She is beautiful and courageous and she's straight up real. To demonstrate, I browsed the web to find some pretty funny gifs and pictures of her all from the Oscars! (Stay tuned for my best dressed post coming soon!)

Before we get started though, I'd like to point out how gorgeous she was at the Oscars! She did the pixie cut right for red carpet with it slicked back and locked into place and kept her makeup light and simple. She exuded youthfulness once more by wearing the backwards necklace (maybe I'll do that in my next shoot!) and lastly... Here it comes... THE GOWN. Oh Dior you've done it again! Although she kept her youthful pieces (clutch, necklace, personality) her overall look had a matureness to it that I fell head-over-heels for and a lot of that has to do with the dress! The shape the dress creates is dire. I'm completely in love.

Anyway, on to why I love her so much via Oscar night GIFs and photos!

1. She enjoys playing hide and seek almost as much as I do.

2. She swats flies away like a boss... on live television... in front of millions.

3. She's not afraid of a fight. I mean hell, she won the Hunger Games.

4. She knows true humor when she sees it... or when she doesn't.

5. She gets embarrassed like you and me! Except she's still famous.

There you have it! My top five reasons I love JLaw just based on the Oscars.
