You might notice I’m blogging A LOT tonight… I decided if I just post one or two of my old posts a day.. that might take me an entire YEAR to catch up with them… So I’m sorry if all these posts bother you but I really want to post them all and get them out of the way. Instead of posting them one – three per night I figured maybe I’d do all the blogs for one – two MONTHS per night. Then maybe I’ll be done by the end of February and it will no longer bother me and I will be free to finally create new posts without having my old ones hovering above my head!
This post is brought to you by KESHA and needs to be updated because I own SO many more colors than I used to when it comes to lipstick…. I mean every shade of the rainbow and shades OF shades of shades… of shades of the rainbow 😉 I can’t wait to show you all of them! Until then, I wanted to post this about how my favorite musician Kesha (who has her court date NEXT month since it was unfortunately post-poned earlier this week) can literally rock every color of lipstick effortlessly… AND DOES.
At the time of originally writing this post, like I said I never really experimented with lipstick colors so this “Amber” gold-orange was my favorite. Since I’ve tried many differents including purple glitter & black (which happens to be one of my ALL time favorites!
I definitely need to do a lipstick palette post with my lipstick colors! Who knew there could be so many shades of just pink and red alone! I own everything from pink ballerina shoes (a VERY light pink) to hot Barbie pink (a VERY PINK pink). What’s your favorite lipstick color and why? I can’t wait to show you the colors I have now! I have so many… this image below doesn’t even begin to cover it!
Hey everyone! So, I always used to have a little box (most of you do) to keep my sweet sweet herbal medicines in. The guy at my old liquor store would always give me his empty Swisher Sweet boxes (my favorite flavors are Peach ♥ and blueberry. So one day I decided I wanted to change up the inside a little but I kept the outside because it was one of my favorite flavors. I simply got one of those duct tapes that have designs (I’ve always been obsessed with zebra and used to have a zebra lighter that was fuzzy until someone stole it… now I have a beautiful little smiley face that says “Legalize It!” and a snowy red christmas themed one) anyways I choose to get zebra to match my lighter and just coated the inside of the plain white box with the tape. You can literally choose anything you’d like to do it, you can even decorate the tape yourself by gluing glitter or sequins whatever you’d like!
After you are done and it’s dried and all finished, add all your goodies and voila! You are more than welcome to continue doing the decorating on the outside of the box as well. Just remember that if you choose to use glitter it will be very messy and not JUST when you’re making the box when whenever you handle the box too. What do you guys keep your goodies in? I have a different box for my stuff now. It’s a cute little cheetah treasure chest box with fuzzy print on the outside and a little handle that lifts up. You can also use these for anything you’d like! Jewelry boxes, keepsake boxes and if you go to your local gas station, smoke shop or liquor store and ask for the swisher boxes that are empty they will most likely give them to you for free! I mean… if they try to charge you for an empty box please say no and walk away… I still have my little glass bottle though (it helps with the smell). Thoughts? Ideas? Let me know in the comments below! xo
This shoot is from a few years ago, but I’ve noticed ever since Buzznet deleted my blog, I haven’t been able to find my work, so I really need to back it up. This is from 2010… ish. The shoot was done by Ashley Abarca & Esther Miller!
After several months (years really) of working on a new clothing collection, it has finally happened and a day after I announce it’s coming out, I officially decide to move it over to my website, put it under my name and get rid of I’m A Jerk Industries entirely (don’t worry, this is a good decision). I was finally able to start working on my new collection after finding a way to make it happen but realized that the production cost of this collection is going to raise prices a little higher than IAJ ever had (not unaffordable, just not the cheapest). Since this was happening, I pondered simply having two lines a more upscale one under “Rose Pendleton” and a slightly less expensive one for “I’m A Jerk Industries“. Finally after considering this option and having prints with both logos I have decided to ultimately shut down I’m A Jerk Industries for good and start fresh with just my name. My newest collection “Lights” will launch in February. I’m currently deleting and merging all my social media accounts together and hopefully Facebook will change I’m A Jerk’s name for me. I have ONE twitter account but will have TWO Instagram’s (one for the blog posts & one for my portfolio) If Facebook doesn’t let me change I’m A Jerk’s name, I’ll be getting a new Facebook for myself/clothing line so RSH is more a fashion website rather than personal blog. I have one Tumblr. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the upcoming designs!
Sorry for the quality. Lights is going to have everything from makeup & tote bags to tank tops, sweaters, shirts, pins, & even socks! Don’t expect me to sit on my butt for too long either, I have so many designs in mind that very soon new hats & beanies will be added (but you can still get the old I’m A Jerk Industries ones in my new store) and another new collection will be launched before the end of 2016 trust me! Lights is extremely diverse and features amazing floral prints, light textures, makeup, rad word sayings & even CHEESEBURGERS and french fries! All designs are original mixed media artwork blending photography & graphics made by me so you might see these around again featured on my new website available for use as design resources (for PERSONAL NON PROFIT use only). The designs above have the old bleeding heart logo on them, because not all of them have been changed yet, but I might leave it on a couple of them, because I think it goes really well.
I decided to change the name for one main reason. I lost I’m A Jerk Industries’ domain name and someone else bought it, and finally after months of waiting RosePendleton.com became available for purchase again. The second I saw that I immediately purchased it and this time I’m not letting it expire ever again even if I’m not using it for anything. If you go there at the moment, you might notice #1 nothing’s really there yet, #2 it’s having some design/coding issues. I’m working on both. With that said, I’m also getting rid of Rogue Daisies, my trendy little online clothing shop. Don’t cry though, because it’s simply moving to become apart of Rosie Says Hello!
Rosie Says Hello has been having some major work done on it. I’m turning it into more of a professional fashion blog with more exclusive content from events like interviews, videos, behind the scenes stuff, etc. It’s still going to be my blog and RSH and RP.com will be linking to each other (RP.com won’t have a blog so you don’t have to worry about subscribing to two different ones!) This leaves me with TWO “companies” Rose Pendleton which will offer design + photography services, plus sell my clothing designs and Rosie Says Hello which will focus a little less on just me and a little more on featuring other amazing artists in the form of interviews, photos, videos, as well as my personal work. If you remember I’m A Jerk TV it was a five minute web show that featured and interviewed artists at events, that will be restarting right here as RSH TV! It’s going to be interviews & event coverage but also tutorials, shopping hauls and even “home movies” which are short 1-5 minute films with usually just myself acting like the one I posted previously called “The Prom”. I’m going to try to post a new episode at least once every two weeks, but at least once a month. It’s just going to be a little hard for me right now because my car was in an accident at the end of December and I won’t be getting it back. Lastly, in addition to adding RSH TV, it’s going to have a brand new little shop (off WordPress.com because profit making isn’t allowed) just for my visitors!
The only thing that’s really NEW so far that you might not be following yet, is the RSH YouTube channel that I created years ago and never really used, but check it out because there are some fashion shows already featured! And new videos are on their way including the one above from the Concept LA event & another one from the Raw Artists Hollywood show I was apart of for Coruscate Innovations! If I can somehow figure out how to download the old I’m A Jerk TV episodes from the Vimeo page, I might upload these too.
So bottom line, you might notice the navigation is a little funky, I’ve added categories and really if you click on ANYTHING right now it’s going to lead you to a 404 error page, because I moved all my blogs out of categories to recreate them. I’m letting you know, because I’m not sure if I will be fixing it tomorrow or the next day, so be patient and don’t freak out! I’m also going to work on getting up a scheduled list of upcoming articles/posts and finally work on the ones people have requested me to write in the past! I’m also getting rid of my filmography & resumes, etc. They will be moving over to my portfolio at RosePendleton.com. Thanks for taking the time to read all this! Wish me luck and be excited for the changes! They’re good I swear!
Hello lovelies! So I found out a few weeks ago that the music video I was in for Lotuseater directed by Daniel J. Pico will be featured on a new video network called BitPix starting next summer! This is super amazing news because the video features some of my own directing work and I was credited as both an actress & 2nd unit director for the video AND my character wears my clothing line!
I also would like to mention that I’m A Jerk Industries (my clothing line) was featured in the video was well. Pictured above you can see my character wearing a Pale Cream Guinea Wrap.
The short film that I directed was called “The Prom” and was used as my character’s memories… well I don’t want to spoil anything if you haven’t seen the video before! You can view The Prom below:
Watch the music video below:
Head over to the “iluvUlikeiluvMyself” page on my website to view more information about the films, photos, behind the scenes photos & more! Tell me what you think of both! (still working on the page) x
Today I started a fashion internship for s New York / Los Angeles brand Huntress that sells a collection of the designers own designs as well as an amazing vintage collection in apparel & accessories (purses, jewelry, etc.) featuring genuine leather pieces, retro jumpsuits, disco shirts, and amazing sequin blouses all from different time periods! However it doesn’t stop there! There is also upcoming beauty supplies (coming soon), Body supplies, such as soaps, sage kits, rose oils & energy cleansing kits. Plus different types of teas imported from India, as well as different types of honey! The Los Angeles store is located at 13342 W Washington Blvd Los Angeles, California open Monday – Friday 1pm – 6pm.
Today, I got the chance to help the designer get ready for the Huntress New York Black Friday sale taking place on Black Friday on Rose Ave in Venice Beach, CA!
There will be 26 different designers at the event all selling their items. The event is only $5 and the items being sold are incredible! If you are in the LA area you should definitely come check it out!
I got to spend my day helping curate a unique vintage collection of clothing that would be coming to the event and making labels for the sale. I must say these items are a CATCH! I really want to get my own hands on some of these one of a kind vintage pieces. They will not last so be sure to definitely come check out the sale (or the store!) if you can!
I also got to bottle and package teas!
They are absolutely beautiful which is funny because it’s a drink! Not only are teas beautiful, but most do not know they help with medicinal properties, like headaches, stomach aches, sore throats, and SO much more!
We ended up having a nice cup of Matcha tea, I believe it was paired with a little bit of Almond Milk (I’m not sure), a dash of cinnamon and some honey. We paired it with cashews. It was simply to die for.
I think after all this tea talk, I’m going to make my self a cup of delicious tea. Now which kind to choose I’m not sure. My all time favorite tea is still Chai, both hot & iced, but I’m thinking of something on the more fruity side at the moment which leaves me with Blueberry Wild Flower or Rose Hibiscus! Perhaps I’ll have a cup of both since I’m not feeling very well at the moment. Do you love tea? It’s one of my all time passions. I hope to one day grow my own plants and make my own recipes (I’ve actually already started the process).
Be sure to come to the event (I will be there) and follow Huntress New York on Instagram & like their Facebook page!
Also, I might lose my domain Rogue Daisies (my online shop) for a total of six months if I’m not able to renew it by tomorrow evening. If you would like to help even donating $1 would help! I need $11 by tomorrow evening in order to make this happen before I run out of time! Email me (PayPal donations accepted only) at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hello ladies & gentlemen! For those who don’t know I’m a huge history fanatic, and so is my mom! We love learning about our surrounding cities and visiting places that have been around for a really long time! This particular post is about San Dimas (and some of the amazing things I found in vintage shops when we went there). It’s from a while ago, but better than the last post just a bit. These photos were once again taken with my iPhone. I feel the cropping is better than the woods, but definitely still too many textures used on each and every single photo! Even the main streets of San Dimas look vintage which is really rad! It’s apart of Route 66 for those who didn’t know. The main street has A LOT of vintage/antique shops and it’s where I got some of my all time FAVORITE THINGS including my vintage Vans fedora!
Another amazing thing I got when we went is the unicorn crystal and my lion necklace (I am a Leo after all). The Nightmare necklace is from Jac Vanek.
Their main street features a lot of old cars and car shops that have been around since the days of Route 66 as well!
We went on a tour of one of the original railroad stations and went through a museum that talked about all the ways people used to use it as main transportation and they showed us the signals for the trains. I’m pretty sure the train still runs but not in the same way. Now it’s mostly just to show people how it all worked!
I believe this was the LAST time I took photos using my iPhone before my DSLR arrived in the mail. Again, I personally believe these are edited much better than the other ones I just posted. What are your opinions? Are you into history and seeing old things? Or maybe just thrifting and vintage shopping? Either way I remember this day was a lot of fun! x
I remember one of the last time I went out somewhere before replacing my first DSLR (named Joe) with a smaller DSLR (named Patrick) [did you get the pun? ha!]. I went up to a spot in Crestline with my former friend which was kind of like a secret getaway spot for us. It used to be the site of an old Teenage Campground that was burned down. Now it’s just a large grassy area with a flowing river, rocks and lots of wildlife!
On this particular day, I used my iPhone to take photos and some of them are pretty great while others… just aren’t. I did want to share them either way!
The editing on them is horrible! One of the main reasons I no longer use “Light Leaks” or textures on my photos is because I definitely used to over use them. Anyways, on our way down, we spotted a mother deer with two baby deer and cautiously stood by not moving as they crossed the river! She watched us the entire time, ready to charge if she needed. We were pretty far away so the image is zoomed and cropped (which is the reason it’s low quality and horribly pixelated). The baby deer aren’t in the photo, but they were in front of her as she protected them from any danger including me and my former friend.
Photography tips that I would definitely give off of this post, is in nature, leave it natural! It’s definitely best to use natural lighting and only use textures or light leaks on your photos if it’s absolutely needed. Or every once in a while if you feel the need to “decorate” your photos. Using them on EVERY PHOTO is a HUGE NO-NO!
I’d say there’s TWO photos from this day that I find “acceptable” some were so bad I didn’t even post them this time around, but I’ve left the two OKAY ones for last!
Although this photo does have a light leak, it’s more of a vintage old photo feeling. Actually it’s one of my favorite photos that I’ve taken with my iPhone and if all these other ones weren’t paired next to it, it might pass as a pretty decent photograph!
The only thing wrong with this one is the horrible cropping. Again, same “light leak” that makes the photo look old and vintage but the colors give it a forest vibe and I seem to like it. Just wish I had left the cropping alone and made it a regular photo.
The first one of the sunflower would be in third place mainly because the only thing wrong with it is that it’s slightly double exposed because of the wind. What do you think of these iphotography pictures? Hit or definite miss? Which is the worst and which one is ACCEPTABLE in your eyes? Opinions anyone? x
PS. If you have a heart, my DSLR Patrick (the new one I bought to replace my old one Joe) has been stolen (or it was back in June). I’m currently trying to SAVE up to buy a new one so my photos for my blog can again be DECENT. If you’d like to help me out check out my stores Rogue Daisies and I’m A Jerk Industries and considering buying something even if it’s just a small necklace for $2 or if you have such a kind heart for the Holidays and want to flat out just donate so I can replace my camera, email me at rosependleton[at]live.com so we can set that up through PayPal or Chase QuickPay (those are the only options I can currently accept right now unless you want to hide some cash in a card and ship it through the mail! Kidding… kinda. And for those who got/liked the first pun, yes… my new camera will probably be named either Andy or Peter. If you didn’t get the first pun, did you get it now? If not… we probably wouldn’t make great friends. Kidding! Again… kinda.
