Hunch Back Habit!! NO!

Today I was with an awesome friend of mine, Samantha, and we spoke upon many things! Always inspiring one another in many ways! It’s quite lovely! Today I was sharing tips that signify health, beauty and confidence through the body… Standing/sitting up straight and holding in your core, all involving a good flow of breathing! This is an important base for YOU! This not only relaxes the body and rewards you with confidence in your body language, but also actually helps relax the mind! Plus you AUTOMATICALLY improve your look, period!

I simply started off telling her it’s important to inhale deeply and as you exhale, hold your lower abdominal (belly)! Hold this as long you can and breath normally as you squeeze as tight as you physically can, without passing out (which takes alot!!). lol This really helps your inner ab muscles WORK! Resulting in a tighter stomach quick! If you constantly perform this type of practice, give it a month and you’ll notice a difference! I do this always! Trust, you can do this undercover where ever you’re at! School desk, office, walking, playing soccer, cooking or watching t.v and it goes onnn!!! Of course it’s important to eat in moderation and remain active in many ways as possible to prevent too much fat gain, but as humans that should be a common sense of living!

  • Now on that note.. (Kind of off topic but essential to share) We were speaking about how we should savor our foods that we eat! Take the time out in the nourishment process, and enjoy the taste of the food it offers our senses and dwell in it! This moment is just as intimate as a mother feeding her baby! Plus we suddenly become less tempted to over eat just to reach the enjoyment of eating. Remember please, food is made to provide our bodies energy! Once our stomachs are full, that extra food is just going to turn into FAT! Now is that necessary?? So save some for later and/or share!!! ❤ We must love our selves and savor our moments in our lives, PERIOD! =)

Plus it’s easier on our stomachs to chew thoroughly anyway!

Now back to posture! Standing/sitting up straight is essential for our backs! It really helps decrease less stress on our spines and uplift our moods! Really! Just try it! The best way to do this I suggest, is to simply roll your shoulders back till you feel your chest is slightly out, shoulders are rested and your chin raises a bit higher!

Now there! Don’t you FEEL much better!?? Well, maybe if you’re not so used to this, you may feel a bit awkward, but its okay~! Just relax as you practice to keep your shoulders rolled back! Not only you’ll breath deeper (which is better), but if you look in the mirror to your side, your stomach is flatter, back straight and posed, and the butt appears rounder (which is good!), you look healthy!!! IDK about you, but there’s nothing wrong with that in my book! 😉

If you ever catch yourself drawing back to the “hunch back habit” while you’re sitting, I always say you might as well just sit all the way back, so your back is forced straight and you’re still relaxed! If you can’t do that, just make sure you’re rolling your shoulders and you’ll be back in place, just don’t over do it! LOL Trust me, when you keep practicing, it’ll become second nature in no time! =D

Hope you enjoyed!

WOW! Where do I begin!?

WOOOOW! Where do I begin?? okaaay I know it’s been quite some time!! From my birthday back in July! No excuses really can be accepted, even if I have been totally focused on photography!! But these 3-4 months really have been quite fulfilling and have kept me on my toes!!! UPDATE you ask?? ok, where do I begin!? My FIRST portfolio have come to an end about 1-2 month(s) ago! I’ve met and been able to work with pretty outstanding freelancing talent like models, mua’s, clothing designers and pretty awesome fashion shows like Mercedes-Benz fashion week! Now I’ve been welcomed to shoot with Elite, Wilhelmina and Next agency a week or so ago !! Ooooh not to mention, Kamoy magazine yesterday thought an editorial I did with beautiful model Shalisa West and designers EmpressionZ was beautiful and wants to publish the photos!! Word??? WORD! I’m about to be a published photographer.. Yes! God is working through meeee! =))

So yes!!  Thinking about the journey to this point, there could have been sooo many juicy stories and behind the scene shots to share with you all, BUUUTT, let’s not focus on the could have!! My journey is a LOOOOOONG one, but a  fulfilling one that I’m sure will be full of surprises, lessons learned and plain good ol’ inspirational!!

My goal is too juggle maintaining a blog, doing my thing with photography while moving UP and handling my side job… Writing isn’t an issue really, I looove writing, but with a traditional pen and paper… but I’ll do it, I’ll type for you ALL!! I must share with everyone! My TRUE hope and goal is to INSPIRE and have fun while doing it!! =D

I will still do OOTD as much as I can and share fashion tips and stories, but my main goal with this blog is to share my journey with you from LEANZA!! From fashion, my photography career , personal insights, and whatever I find pretty damn relevant, it’ll be on here!!! Good thing my fashion tips can’t really ever go outdated, so check around if you haven’t, a lot of my advice has changed lives! LOL Daring to be different, I do believe I am the CHANGE! My personal style, especially in my fashion photography have been rejected and always will, but that is simply WONDERFUL!! Because when I do meet people who accept and believe in my work, It is a extreme blessing!! I feel like wooow, yes, there are people who understaaaand!!! I was getting concerned for this world!! lmao But any who, I don’t want to turn this into a full blown essay! haha, I’ll go ahead and post my favorite photos from various shoots I have done to this very point!
