Bonjour from chambre 311!
And on the topic of empowerment, Tamara co-founded the house of Jimmy Choo and has taken the mastery of what she’s learned to really hone in a staple silhouette within her own brand. Now all I want to wear are skinny heels with monochromatic tights. Wouldn’t life feel so much better if we could all dress as if we were in an editorial? But to take it a notch above, how much better if we can take the feeling of a good shoe and wear it in our daily lives? I think wearing a heel to work (you can tell that I’ve strangely romanticized corporate life after working for myself for so long) suddenly reminded me how I should feel when I’m in work mode.
REVISION II: I have found someone for this role!! Thank you so much for your interests x
REVISION: After reading my 12:30am plea for help, I realized it did come off indulgent and entitled, and for that I apologize. I’m not really the best at communicating, hah, it tends to get me in trouble at times and I feel like I’m always doing damage control.
But, you’re right, if I call it a job, I should at least offer a living wage… and if I’m being completely honest… I am just grazing my comfortable living and truthfully don’t have the means to support another human financially – for now (‘cause I think with the right help, I could). If you couldn’t tell by now, I am very picky about the sponsors I take on and sometimes, would rather pull rent money from my savings than to take on a sponsorship that I don’t feel aligned with or a have connection towards. Perhaps rewording this as an internship would be a better case?
Now I consider myself to be a fair person and will always make sure everyone around me is comfortable and knows that I value and appreciate their time, I hope I haven’t shown anyone proof otherwise of my personality. I would much rather undersell a project and over deliver than to oversell and under deliver. I have some projects in the pipeline that aren’t set in stone yet, and if those pull through, then suddenly I will have a bigger budget to work with. I’m also always in contact with people who are looking for talent to hire and have often referred people I’ve worked with to them – you just never know where your journey will take you.
Ultimately yes, I am asking for you to take a risk on me, and it’s not for you, no hard feelings. However, what I don’t want, is for there to be any room for misjudgment on my character; which is why I wanted to write this follow up note in the spirit of transparency.

PS, this is a JOB. I am not looking for someone to ‘help’ me, I am looking for someone to put in the work. I work extremely fast-paced and am not as laissez-faire as my videos may paint me as.
I’ve been really drawn to a stranger romantic, dominatrix aesthetic lately. Then one day, I coerced Kenealy to come over and rummage around my backyard between renovations to play around on camera.
This month, as you might have figured already, I’m doing #31daysofthatschic. Daily vlog uploads, and in the midst of being far to engulfed in video editing programs, I wanted to have a creative refresh working with photos again, for a second.
Feeling super inspired and creative lately, need more energy and resources to channel it. Gonna be asking for help soon in the new year, so be on the look out for a job opportunity.
It may seem I’m trying to ignore the fact it’s Fall by perusing in my undergarments when in fact, it’s actually the most comforting seasonal thing for me. Heater is on blast; I’m lounging in my knickers and favorite jeans; making some bougie, organic, all natural, seasonal latte.
