Book Collection

I am in the process of building my book collection. I used to be an avid reader as a child but I just completely stop. Throughout the years I'd read a good book here and there but I'd love to have an actual library that'll grow as I grow. I decided to start with books that are about what I'd love to do which is make art. I have bought two books so far by Austin Kleon; Steal Like An Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative and the follow up book Show Your Work: 10 Ways To Share Your Creativity And Get Discovered.


My next book will be Her Crown: A Journey To Self Love From A Girl To A Queen by Shana Bea and J. Chavae. I usually don't read "self-help" books but I am getting more into supporting Black own businesses and mainly because an artist I follow on Instagram posted about it and it sounds good. Also, I JUST realized that Shana Bea is Kneehighs and Love on Tumblr. I've been following her for years now and that makes me that much eager to buy this book. 


I also have plans to read #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso. I'm a fan of the brand Nasty Gal and from what I've read about her I think I'd enjoy this book.


As I was typing this post I decided to do a Book Collection series. As I collect books I'll read them then write a review on it. Pretty simple and to the point. It'll be called.....Book Collection.....Alyea Ann's Book Collection. That's my way of giving it some personal creativity?.... ^_^ I'll tell you more about it after I've properly thought this out. I pretty much have the idea but I learned my lesson on just posted my ideas as they come.

Hair Trend: Grey Hair

Grey hair use to be frown upon; a sign that your youth is no longer here. Living in a world where looking young is key you wouldn't think that someone would want to purposely go grey. However, if you haven't notice by now that grey is in this year. This awesome hair trend has been going viral on social media and I've been collecting hairspiration pictures.  
I've been collecting hairspiration pictures because I've been thinking about going grey too. I usually don't follow trends but I got my hair colored,and professionally straighten since going natural, for the very first time back in October and now I feel like experimenting! For the longest I wanted to go purple but grey intrigues me. I just don't know if I want to do highlights (and/or lowlights) or color my whole head. Hmmm.....choices, choices, choices.

I won't color my hair anytime soon because I don't want to do too much too soon. I'm going to wait until 2015 but I'll do a test trial with hair chalk just in case I end up hating the grey.
