Growth. Progress. Emergence. Like a plant, I'm growing, reaching for the sun, the light again. April is about embracing this and shedding the darkness of the past. Green (and greenery) are the primary visuals used to demonstrate this.
Stress is the predominant theme in my life right now. I'm feeling a bit of some, "Beam me up, Scottie" vibes this month. I'm so done with the redundant exhaustion of humanity as it exists here on Earth. SIGH. Let these textures and colors transport me and you, both.
SO MUCH IS HAPPENING. February is always hard, but this time around it gets crazy. I’m moving. Starting my new job. The moodboard reflected it— double the content. Alone, the panel on the left is aggressively pink and effeminate, full of fluffy textures, florals, and variants of rose. The right panel evokes a bolder side, full of reflective materials and vivid cooler tones.
To the surprise of literally no one, I plan to persist on my relentless quest to bring more color and sparkle into my own life and the lives of others in 2018. I'm going to get even louder and bolder. Ask for, demand, take the things that I want, that I deserve. Kiss that new love. Get that job. I’m gonna let these bold colors, sensual textures, and imagery do the rest of the talking.
Now, during these holidays in turbulent times, I am reminded to live boldly and authentically. Color used consciously radiates deliberate vibes out into the world. Sparkles, in the form of jewels or sequins, reflect light like constellations. Confidence, boldness and love are necessary to achieve an inner glow. Bring on the paillettes, the tiaras, the crystals, and the love. Let's get glowing.
This November I've sparked new friendships, flames with old crushes sputtered out. Drama rages on in various realms of my life, and it's left me questioning who I am. The winds of change are swirling; I've reached an inflection point in my life. I'm doing a lot of reflecting, a lot of raging, and a lot of hustling. The bold colors, reflective textures, and inspirational women featured in this month's mood board are symbolic of the creativity and power I'm seeking to evoke as I charge forward.
THE INAUGURAL MOODBOARD. I've been obsessed with mood boards as long as I can remember. During my childhood I'd spend hours sitting on the floor in my bedroom, cutting apart Vogue, Lucky, and really any other magazine I could get my hands on, to snip out the looks that ~moved~ me in order to assemble my own layouts. After a three year stint of creative atrophy, I've returned to my scrapbook-esque pastime, armed with digital tools and renewed passion.
